Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation

Best foundation ever! My HG of all products, I love this foundation!! I have dry, sensitive skin & this foundation doesn't irritate my skin at all. It's build-able, so perfect for minimal coverage (for heading to class or work) and full coverage (for those wild nights out). This foundation looks so natural on the skin and shows up beautifully in pictures. I apply it with a damp beauty blender and it makes my skin appear flawless. As for packaging, I love the pump but wish it was removable (to get the very last product when you're reaching the end) and after having it for a while the cap seems to pop off in my makeup bag (very annoying). It could be cheaper but you get what you pay for, I feel like it's worth the investment (my last bottle lasted me a good 4.5 months or so). Also, a big plus for all the shades it comes in!
This concealer is probably one of the best concealers I've ever used. Although the consistency is thick, when blended onto the skin it feels as though you're only applying a thin layer. Has to be used with properly prepped skin to avoid caking and flaking (as with any cream concealer). This concealer is very pigmented and covers my dark circles (I apply this over Bobbi Brown's corrector in 'Bisque'). My only complaint would be the twist off cap, would be much easier if the packaging was the kind you flip open. Otherwise for only $20, this concealer is great!
Lip Treatments -Burt's Bees - Rejuvenating Lip Balm with Acai Berry

A good lip balm although it does smell like chewable vitamins :/ The only reason why I gave it 3 lippies is because there's something in this lip balm (I don't know which ingredient) that's making the skin about my upper lip a pinkish color. My friend who also has sensitive skin on the skin above her upper lip said the same thing happened to her when using Burt's Bees lip balms. I think I'm going to stick to my EOS or just the regular & classic chapstick.
Hair Removal -Unlisted Brand - Emjoi Epislim Epilator

LOVE THIS EPILATOR! I use it on my upper lip & armpits & YES it is painful to use the first few times, but you eventually get used to it. Even after just using it for the first time, I noticed my armpit hair grew back slower & thinner. I used to wax my upper lip but it was so bad for my skin since I had extra sensitive skin right about my lip. I ordered this online from walmart & it was about 16$ total w/ free shipping. OH, I forgot to mention that this is the secret to getting rid of dark underarms. That's right ladies! No more shaving = no dark underarms :)
Used it for 3 days & night before returning it. I bought it because it said alcohol free (which it isn't) and it had the word "hydra" in it's name.. which I thought would be good for my dry skin. Nooooo it was horrible for my skin! I have very dry skin & I noticed this toner giving me red spots & dry patches. The reason I gave it 3 stars instead of 1 is because I feel like this would be a good toner for someone whose skin is less sensitive & maybe oily, although the pink color & strong fragrance does make it seem kind of harsh. I will not repurchase & I think I'm just going to buy an alcohol free witch hazel next time.
This review is for the Mane n' Tail Deep Moisturizing Conditioner. GREAT PRODUCT! LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT. Even after I've washed it out in the shower, I could still run my fingers through my wet hair & it feels SOOO soft. Considering that it's deep moisturizing, you'd think it would weigh your hair down & make it flat, but it actually ADDED volume to my hair. Oh, & I'm writing this review after using it one time. You will see results after your first application. Do not hesitate to try it!
