This is a beautiful whimsical-like nail lacquer that reminds me of springtime and lilac flowers. :) It is very sheer on the first and second coat, and pink based with blue shimmer. Those colours work so well together to have this barely there violet effect depending on the lighting. The product is easy to apply, not too thick, runny, gooey, and it dries considerably quickly, just perfect. I recommend this to people with great nails that just want an subtle feminine "oomph"! <3
Breathtaking. When you use it for the first time with a "clean face", you'll be genuinely amazed at the amount of dirt and makeup on your brush. The first week I used this, patches of my face went dry, particularly right undereye and chin, but I knew it was just a dreaded phase so I waited out the horrible new textures, and as the week progressed, the dead skin was really easy to scrape off and I didn't think my face could glow anymore from usage but it did; hooray! haha, HOORAY! But seriously, what is this product's problem? It went and erased all my pores, prevented my monthly pimples, faded out my minature fine lines, and evened out my skin tone? This is why when the mia 2 wears out, I will never ever ever forget to buy this product again! P.s. got the the pink and white polka dot one without the added $10, love, love, love!
Concealers -Lancome - Maquicomplet (Complete Coverage Concealer)

I really, truly wanted to love this so much it's almost funny! I really dislike this as a concealer most days, because even though I moisturize well, it cakes up when I need a touch up because it fades, so I'll have to wipe the surface and reapply. So I wouldn't purchase this again as a concealer, but I would without doubt purchase this again to mix with my bb cream or alone. It works so well as a foundation, especially in a blotchy emergency, doesn't cake, feels like nothings there, and provides such a natural coverage! To conclude though I'm finding another concealer for my undereye shadows. :)
I brought this yesterday at ULTA when I was originally looking for perfume but when I saw it I just had to try it! A saleswoman help me find a shade and no one could tell it was on my skin, the shade matched almost pefectly! $39 for a tiny cute tube seemed a tad pricey but you only need to apply a dab. It covers imperfections, light freckles, and so on. What it doesn't mask well were undereye circles and dark acne scars; not that I have many, but it does improve; which should be credited. I really love this BB cream, my first and only, will buy again.
I love this color, it's my favorite for sure! Too bad it's discontinued though. You have to wear 3 coats if you don't want a sheer look, but two is fine for me. I love it because the color seems to change with the lighting. So pretty. :3

There's so many bad reviews, it's scary! I really like this lotion though, at first I was worried that it's be a greasy thick one, but I feel as if my skin drinks it! I used this alone, it's really nice and gives me a nice dewy look that I love so much.
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Moisture SPF 35

I've heard a lot of great things about Neutrogena, so when I was looking for sunscreen, guess what I picked up? Now I really really dislike the sun, I'm afraid of aging, silly I know. But what I also dislike is sunscreen breaking me out or leaving a horrible thick layer of white cast on my face. This sunscreen doesn't! It absorbs so easily, I feel tempted to apply and apply continously because it's just so fascinating to me.
I really like this! Only 4 though because the cream's really greasy. But my skin soaks it all up by the morning! I didn't see results for the first or second day, but the third, definitly. I'm not sure about deeper wrinkles though, mine are minimal, but I can really tell my face has been more subtle, moisturized, and clearer.
