Cleansers -Olay - Total Effects Anti Aging Anti Blemish Cleanser
MrsRiggs 2/1/2013 1:46:00 PM
This product made me break out worse and is very harsh on my skin...you can even smell the chemicals in it.. not fun!! :(
Baby oil is good on everything! I used it to take off my makeup and now I use it as a shaving oil. It makes my legs super soft and is cheaper and lasts wayyyyy longer than shaving cream! Love it!!
Scrubs -Neutrogena - Energizing Sugar Body Scrub-Fresh Citrus

The packaging and the smell was great, as was the exfoliation. It made my skin really soft. However, it left a sticky film on my skin and made my back break out in big welts :( not cool. So I threw it away. Oh well, they can't all be winners.
I hated this foundation. It did nothing but break out my skin. It also was TOO liquidy. It felt like I was just putting water on my skin. No coverage and made my skin slick. Not sexy.
I got this as a sample in a magazine in the beige rose tint. It was my skin tone and it looked wonderful on my skin! The smell was floral and strong but faded throughout the day. It even stayed put on my oily skin without powder! Once I get enough money I will definitely purchase!!
I used this when I was a camp counselor the past few summer's. With it being 85+ degrees outside and running around the campgrounds, the SPF 50 was a definite need for my pale skin! It also had a full, luminous coverage that lasted all day, through sweat AND swimming! Overall great first-time tinted moisturizer!
Bronzers -Physicians Formula - Healthy Wear Bronzer

First of all, I love that this is a pressed bronzer in a compact. It is so easy to travel with especially if you have a tiny purse! This looks amazing when I have a light tan. I use it on my cheeks and nose for a sunkissed look, and it makes my skin look naturally glowy :) great product!
Loose Powders -E.L.F. - Studio High Definition Powder

I really wanted to try Make Up For Ever High Definition Powder, but it was way too expensive. So I found e.l.f.'s version at Wal-Mart, and at $3, decided I might as well try it (what did I have to lose?) I tried it the next day and loved it! It made my face look flawless, and my face in my wedding pictures looked great! Inexpensive AND great quality?? A++ !
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Define-A-Line Eyeliner in Ebony Black
MrsRiggs 2/1/2013 1:12:00 PM
I've used many eyeliners, but this one so far is my favorite. I use it every day and it looks good no matter how I use it - thin line, thick, winged etc... and it's easy to use, unlike liquid or creme eyeliner. It's also nice that it hasn't smudged, even when I cry or work out! I even used this at my wedding when I cried like a baby because I was so confident in it...and sure enough, no smudges!! Great eyeliner!
Cleansers -Biore - Combination Skin Balancing Cleanser

This cleanser feels good on my skin, but really did nothing for me. It smells nice though, and the pump is a plus.
BB Cream -Maybelline - Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream
MrsRiggs 2/1/2013 12:59:00 PM
I tried this because I was excited about the trending BB creams out there. However, I was very disappointed with this. It was too oily and though I knew the coverage would be sheer, sheeting was too sheer and didn't make anything look better. I looked oily which looked worse. Now I just use it when I'm staying home, so I don't waste it, but just didn't do it for me. I'll just have to try other BB creams with hope that they won't let me down. :/
Liquid -L'Oreal - True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup
MrsRiggs 2/1/2013 12:53:00 PM
This is my everyday foundation. It has sheer/medium coverage and looks great on my skin. It also is soft and blends beautifully, and doesn't break me out, which is a definite plus!! It would be great for summer because it is so light, it doesn't even feel like I have makeup on! If I need extra coverage, I just use another layer (it is super buildable). I also love the pump, it keeps it from getting messy or from accidentally getting too much! And it lives up to its name....It makes your skin look LUMINOUS! Thanks for another great product, L'Oreal!
Primer/ Corrector -Revlon - PhotoReady Perfecting Primer (color 001)
MrsRiggs 2/1/2013 12:46:00 PM
I love this primer. It makes my skin soft and allows my makeup to glide on smoothly. I have also tried it under my BB Cream because the Cream's finish was too slick, and it definitely helped. Keeps my face from breaking out as much, too and just overall looks better than just foundation alone!
When I worked at a tanning salon, I needed to stay tan, so after I got a good base tan from the tanning bed or got a spray tan I would use this to fill in any light patches. It really evens out my skin tone. I also used this alone before my wedding, and my before-pale skin was a gorgeous bronzy shade (not orangey bronze). The only con is the smell. It smells awful, but it is worth it if u want to be tan without the tanning bed. Just use at night so you're not stinky all day and make sure u shower in the morning to get the smell off!
Lotions/ Creams -Palmers - Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula
MrsRiggs 2/1/2013 11:40:00 AM
I bought this because I had a few light stretch marks on my tummy and wanted them to fade. It broke me out in a rash and couldn't use it anymore :( the only pros for me were the smell (amazing) and the packaging quality. Other than that, not for me. Sorry, Palmers.
