My HG mascara :D I loved the original because ALL waterproof mascaras pretty much smudge on me. Since the original was on the drier side in terms of formulas, I decided to pick up the waterproof on a whim :) Like the original, but bettter! Holds my curl a lot better! Definitely more defining and lengthening than actually like "volumizing" though. No smudges!
Eyeliner -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Pencil - Mink Brown

This is actually a great product! I've recently run into the problem where in some photos only half of my eyebrows show up...so I decided to test out some brow pencils. The Maybelline eyebrow pencil ( twin ones in red) were WAY too red based for my hair color. So after some more dilly dallying, I found the wet n wild one. Cheap, effective, and a perfect color match :) Set it with the great lash in clear, and it stays put all day! :D no break outs on my eyebrows or anything sooo yay! Give it a try, can't hurt :)
I would, but it's prescription medication, and my acne has indeed gone down to the point where I think I can control with it drugstore acne products! Well, we'll see. But the main thing here is that this product does work. It eventually, through time, evens out your skin tone and prevents acne. As with all acne products though, it can't prevent hormonal acne. But, for the 3 years I used it, my skin has improved dramatically. But cross your fingers that my new regime works! :)
Lip Treatments -Burt's Bees - Pink Grapefruit Refreshing Lip Balm

I absolutely love this. This has a MUCH better scent than the ones that burts bees usually has and is definitely more creamy. It lasts really long and soothes my chapped lips!
Besides for the little bit of trouble finding my shade, I do believe this is my favorite drugstore concealer! I love Maybelline's face concealers in general, but for me, the double face perfecter was a bit too rich for my skin. It covered really well though! ( Not always covering my acne scars, which was fine since my acne scars can be QUITE difficult to cover, but definitely build able) Maybelline's mineral power concealer was alright, it was good for oily skin and underneath the eyes, but the lasting power and coverage was more suited for people with minor flaws and not heavy acne scarring. SOOOOOO maybelline superstay :) covers amazingly well, lasts all day and will not budge. I set it with maybelline dream matte powder and I really don't have to touch up all day. It does require some blending as the color is a tad light for me now that I"m a little more tan in the summer. I would buy another shade but their shades are kind of hard to....figure out so I"ll just blend away :) LOVE THIS.
Moisturizers -Cerave - Facial Moisturizing Lotion - AM SPF 30

I honestly can say that I have found my holy grail moisturizer for the daytime. I have EXTREMELY sensitive skin and no other sunscreen is moisturizing and nongreasy enough for my face. It's really quite an odd finish, it's dewy/semi-matte when I put it on, and it is VERY creamy and smooth. Cetaphil for me is WAY too greasy and oily for me. It has also helped even out my skin tone quite a bit :) The packaging and price for it....well the price is doable, but it's certainly not going to give you a ton of product compared to the Cetaphil jars/pumps. It also doesn't have a pump so it comes in a little bottle you have to squeeze manually, which is kind of annoying. But like I said, the product is amazing <3
So far so good :)! I've had this mascara for two days now. TWO VERY ROUGH DAYS. I"ve ran 5 miles, I"ve cried, I"ve slept with make up ( which is really bad...but it was only for like 30 minutes xD) and it really didn't come off. Normally I have extremely oil eyelids but it hasn't smudged on me! I have a marathon and an amusement park day planned, so we'll have to see if it pasts those two~ Normally waterproof mascaras smudge all over me ( which is typical of maybelline waterproof mascaras for some reason) This has held up its curl decently, has not smudged on me, is easy to remove with some oil-based makeup remover! It's cheaper than most mascaras, not dirt cheap but not as much as covergirl lashblast! I just wish the packaging was more appealing.....but I guess it's classy :)
:/ I wanted to like this due to the great coverage and the lovely price and packaging. But honestly, IT"S VERY YELLOW and has a slight green tint on my skin to the point where people ask why my face is green. It also contains oil, which for my oily skin, is horrendous. It wipes off super easily....and it's really hard to blend T_T So no, no repurchasing for me.
I was looking for the PERFECT easy no fuss lip gloss to wear for school, something moisturizing but very natural! I love this "sheer" cherry vanilla lipgloss because it really is that natural effortless look! I love the sheer color, its pinkish ( more clear) with tiny shimmers and it SMELLLLLS AMAZING. I was so scared it would smell like that " cherry" medicine smell, but to me, it smells like the bath and body works candle " frosted cupcake", its a mix of cupcakes and frosting. I LOVE THE SCENT :). But finally, its pretty moisturizing and makes my lips really soft when it wears off. Super shiny too :)
I LOVE THIS So far, all mascaras have smudged on me, waterproof ones, even ones that are SUPER hard to remove like Cover Girl's Lash Blast. This hasn't smudged on me and even holds my curl! Granted, it's not waterproof, so it wouldn't hold my curl as well as other as other mascaras, but for not smudging, I can handle some drooping :) I know that it clumps my lashes a little bit but I personally like that look. It adds volume and length like it claims, but for those looking for full on natural, it does clump your lashes.. I'm loving this mascara so far :) Update: i am seriously still loving this! It was sprinkling today and I was so scared of smuding but after like 10 hours of wearing it AND sprinkling, minimal smuding and held my curl. super.super, impressed :D
I truly adore this product! I use it as a concealer for everday and set it with maybelline matte powder. I like how it covers up all my acne scars and controls my oils! The only thing I detest is the packaging... come up with a pump please! I have this is sand beige, and I have SUPER sensitive skin, and it doesn't break me out! I even took naps after school with it on, and no breakouts! :)
LOVE LOVE LOVE. It made my hair SOOO soft. like really. really soft. and shiny! I slept on my hair afterwards, but had I just let it air dry and then gone out that day or something, my hair DEFINATELY would have looked even better. The scent is the typical shampoo scent that herbal essences usually has, it's llike cocountty sort of. I also realized that I dont think I"m allergic to it! Sometimes I get allergic to products like this, but yeh first time using it today and I loved it :) THe packaging is weird though.. xDD I would rather just have a squeeze tube instead of a plastic round thing to squeeze....
This is still my 2nd mascara ever bought...and I do like it! My lashes look longer, and ( the waterproof one) it holds my curl! Which is cool because i'm asian and my lashes are super straight xD. But I have to put a little bit of powder underneath my eye, under the waterline, so that the mascara doesn't smudge. But, I had this problem with lashblast waterproof too, so it might just be my eyes. but I do like this mascara!
My skin is super sensitive, and right now, with acne medication, I think it's PERFECT. But if I were to stop with the acne medication, I think I would switch to something with a bit more of an acne fighting agent in it. It's a great basic cleanser, for babies or for people on acne medication, and I would recommend it LOTS. it's a great cleanser, but just be warned, it's not going to " cure" anything, it's just there to gently clean your skin.
This is really.......I just... I love the packaging, but this stings my sensitive skin like crazy! Plus its VERY shiny and leaves a white cast.
