So I really love this lip scrub and it tastes wonderful. Is that weird? It smells like mint chocolate. It does leave the lips very smooth and it does get rid of the dead skin.. Another plus is that the boyfriend likes it, if you know what I mean hahaha :) I would re-purchase
Primer/ Corrector -BeneFit Cosmetics - The Porefessional

Ok so I have rather large pores on my cheeks and nose. I am a sucker with benefit, when it comes to their packaging and names. So when I saw this at sephora, I was very excited to try it out and the packaging is cute! When I tried it on my fingertips I hated it already. I hate primers or creams that feel....like smashbox photofinish primer. It might be just me but I really hate the texture of it. I used as a primer under my Makeup Forever HD foundation and literally after 3 hours my face was very oily! I thought it was the foundation. But today I used Laura Mercier Oil-free primer under my foundation and am not oily at all. I dont know if it was the POREfessional primer that made me so oily, even though it says oil-free.. But other than that...The packaging is cute, but a little pricey for that little tube...
Mascara -Cover Girl - Lash Blast Clump Crusher mascara

I really do love this mascara! The only downfall is that it doesn't give me the volume that I am looking for, but i can always put a different brand on top of that coat. But this mascara does live up to it's name! No clumps!! But after the third coat it does clump very little but really...who puts on three or more coats of mascara?? (No offense if you do!) But this mascara does give you wonderful length.
Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation

The price of this foundation is very expensive and i was hoping that the foundation was "worth the buck" and all the hype it was getting. It really isn't though.. I have it on right now as I am typing and I feel it oily on my skin. I live in San Jose, California and the weather today is very nice and mid 70's. I definitely wasn't expecting that this foundation would make me look like I ran a mile. I used oil-free moisturizer and oil free primer. I usually use smashbox and that foundation doesn't make me as oily as this foundation makes me. I think I am going to keep looking for my HG foundation because obviously this is not the one..... Too bad
So I actually brought this product today at nordstroms. And this maybe the only foundation that is the correct shade for me. My nationality is german,italian, native American And mexican so I am tan but with a lot of olive or yellow tones. .It has a pump which is awesome because I hate pouring foundation; like estée Lauder double wear. The only problem so far is that it does give you a somewhat flat look, so bropnzer or blush or anything that contours your skin can make this foundation look nice on anyone. I also recommend to moisturize or/and prime your face thoroughly before putting on the foundation. So it won't empathize the dryness in your face. :) hope this helps.
