Tried this for the 2nd time because I forgot how I liked it the first time. Pros: no smudging on the upper lid area, pigmented black, cheap. Cons: major smudging on the lower lid area even with UDPP. I had racoon eyes! I guess my skin is just too oily for this product.
Lipstick -The Body Shop - Colourglide Lip Colour - 06 Clover Pink

The color is great. A very pinky-brown nude that flatters me and is very much like my own natural lip color. BUT the smell is obnoxious. Smells like leather or new car smell gone bad. It didn't smell so bad in the store but when I applied it at home the smell was very intense. I couldn't stand it. Will not be re-purchasing.
This color is mlbb and it brightens up my face. Very wearable, a brighter more pink version of Cosmo. Yes, I will be repurchasing when I use up my tube.
I got this in #11 and it's a great color but the smell makes me sick. Smells like chemical and plastic gone wrong. If you are at all sensitive to smells, do not purchase this. I will not be repurchasing. I will be returning.
This was my first MAC lipstick when I wanted a nude pinky mouth. But this doesn't bring life to my face. It makes my face look bleh. I wished this was more pink like my beloved Maybelline Nude Blush that was discontinued. EDIT: I went and bought the pinker version of this which is Modesty in Cremeshine formula. Hug Me and Modesty are very close in color. HM is more peachy and Modesty is more pink. But when Modesty gave my lips a blue tinge like I just came in from the freezing cold and all color was drain from my lips. Hug Me actually looked better! I had HM on my top lip and Modesty on my bottom lip. For some reason, peachy based pinks look better on me than true pinks. I will be re-purchasing.
I've had this for 2 years and have hardly made a dent in it. I liked it at the store but found it too brown and deep for everyday wear. I hate for things to go to waste so I will sometimes apply this with my fingers to "stain" my lips and top it off with vaseline. I will not be re-buying this product. I just want to use it up and be done with it!
This is a great mineral foundation. Love the fact that's it's pressed powder. No more getting loose mineral dust on my clothes. It has medium coverage. Lasts throughout the day and easy to apply. I buff it in with a flat top brush. Will I buy again? Maybe if it weren't so pricey.
Great color on me. It's like my natural lip color but more vibrant. I exchanged this over Viva Glam V. VGV was too frosty, shimmery. Cosmo is a matte color that looks polished and healthy. It covers the uneveness of my lips and makes it a uniform color. I like this color alot!
Yes, I like how this is a simple retinol product that you apply at night. No fuss. This is my go to product when I want to use retinol. I have not found anything better in the price range. Will buy again.
Moisturizers -Olay - Olay Complete Ageless Skin Renewing UV Lotion SPF 20

This is my daily moisturizer/sunscreen. It's photostable, absorbs quickly and not sticky. Wish it had a higher SPF but then it might become sticky. For now, I'm happy with this.

HG status item. I have bought this product time after time because I cannot live without it. It's safe for the eyes, absorbs fast and offers protection from the sun. It definitely wards off fine lines and wrinkles. Have used this for 5 years. Great product.
I ran out of Sorbet, my favorite BE blush color and all they had was the duo with Joyous Jennifer and Sorbet. Joyous Jennifer is too red for my NC 30 yellow toned skin. It makes it look ruddy and is very unflattering. The blushes are supposed to be compatible since it comes in the duo but I love sorbet and don't like Joyous Jennifer. Even with a very light touch it's too much redness for my skin. So sad because the color is so pretty. Such a waste. EDIT: Ok, so I found a way for the blush and my money to not go to waste. Mix a little with aquaphor or carmex and it's such a pretty deep coral color for your LIPS. It is so pretty and flattering. Mix it well with a lip brush and apply!
