Awesome, awesome stuff. I've always had trouble finding a color match for my dark eyebrows. Pencils and powders always looked too reddish, dark or just off. That's where this brow powder comes in. Found it at Ulta for around $5 and it is absolutely fantastic. It comes with wax on one side and 2 brow powders on the other. The colors match my brows perfectly and fill in any sparse patches. I like that there's 2 colors so that you can blend them or just use one.The lighter shade I use for everyday, and the darker for evenings out.I look more put together when I use this brow powder. Oh and it'll last forever. Definitely recommend, this stuff is a steal.
I love this lipstick! It is the perfect wearable everyday red. Its not too bright or too dark, just right. It makes my face look a little more made up and perfected. I have dark hair and fair skin so when I wear this I look a little like snow white :). So glad I found this. And I got it for under a buck at cvs. Great buy!
This bb cream has much better coverage than I thought it would and totally evened out my skin tone. However it was much too yellow for my cool toned skin. Also even though it covered well and evened out my skin tone, it looked a little mask like and not natural at all. In addition this product broke me out for days as most garnier products seem to do to me. Not recommended and would not buy again. :(
This stuff is the bees knees! I have been breaking out badly for the last few months most likely due to the bb cream I was using as well as other products. My sister got me this for my birthday and my skin has been significantly calmer and smoother ever since. This cleanser is very gentle, fragrance free and has a creamy yet gel like consistency. You only need a very small amount, like a pea size, and it foams up and dissolves makeup beautifully. It hasn't been that long but i'm really hoping this is my new HG cleanser. Love it.
I've had this for a really long time. About 8 years and the pot is still almost full. For me it doesn't look great as an all over lid color because it shrinks my already smallish eyes. This isn't easy to apply either. A bit dusty and gritty, not really uniform. However, I have recently found that this works great as a liner. I apply it with an eyeliner brush and I get a precise line that doesn't budge.
Lipstick -Revlon - Revlon Super Lustrous in Fire and Ice

A beautiful bright red! Not for the timid. Expect to get lots of attention while wearing this. Best with black liner and little other makeup. This lipstick has a way of brightening up your whole face and is unlike any red I've worn before. Very Mad Men.
Got a manicure yesterday and chose this color. It is quite lovely and subtle. Perfect for the natural look and very work friendly. I really like the milky color that comes after about two coats. Don't have much else to add that the other reviewers haven't covered. Love this color, love OPI.
Hair -Got 2 Be - Rockin' It Encore Fresh Dry Shampoo

This is a very good dry shampoo. Like others have already mentioned it doe smell like fruit loops. Which some may or may not like. I personally like it but for those who aren't into fragrances it does dissipate rather quickly.I'm always on the hunt for a decent dry shampoo as my hair is fine and can get a bit oily and this does the job. From the low end to high end dry shampoos I have tried I think this is a good quality product that eliminates greasiness, gives hair body and blends in with little effort. I will buy this again but I will probably try others, as dry shampoo is a favorite of mine out of it's sheer convenience.
I have had this blush for over four years! Which is saying something since I use it quite consistently. It has a pretty high pigment factor which is why you only need to use a little, and it comes out on my skin a pretty rosy reddish pink. I could see this being a universally flattering shade being that it is such a flattering and mild pink. I got this in a pur minerals kit, but would totally recommend getting this because its high quality and lasts forev.
I like this but don't love it. I always like having a black polish in my collection so I scooped it up when it was on sale. The name is also cute. It goes on a little thin and requires a couple coats. However it doesn't turn out as smoothly or creme like as say essie or opi. All in all I found this to be an okay black- but there are definitely better ones out there.
This is an absolutely breathtaking aquatic! Fairly light, fresh and watery. Only complaint is the staying power isn't as long as I'd expected. But Definitely a spring/summer perfume that can be worn day or night. The SA at the mac counter told me this was sold out for five months. I believe it. I think this may be love. Definitely a keeper!
This is one of my favorite body lotions. It is very moisturizing, fairly thick, creamy and non greasy. I love the scent. It is cherry almond and gives a very calming and comforting feel. I love how rich it is and how inexpensive a bottle is. Makes my skin feel so soft. I will continue to buy this for as long as they make it. A definite staple in my bathroom.
Treatments -Joico - K-Pak Color Restorative Styling Oil

Hot damn, this oil is fantastic. I've used all sorts of different oils and products for smoothing and protecting my color treated hair, including paul mitchell super skinny serum,got 2 be satin drops, chi, moroccan oil, garnier, biosilk and one n only argan oil, to name a few. This is the most effective for my hair out of all of them. I use a couple pumps on damp hair and a pump before I straighten. It leaves my hair, satiny, smooth, shiny and light. You can't even tell I have split ends! The fragrance of this oil is very light, slightly sweet and natural smelling. I would say it probably suits most hair types. I will probably never buy any other brand again- It's that good.
This is such a beautiful, fun, lively pink. I recently got a pedicure and chose this color because I wanted something bright and girly for spring; and this turned out to be perfect. I can't stop staring at my toes. Definitely recommended for anyone who wants a little pep in their step. Perfectly creamy and delicious, just how a strawberry margarita should be.
I'm on the fence about Everyday Minerals. I was so excited to find about this line and the free samples. But I never quite found the color match I was looking for. I first purchased the intensive and while it covered well and stayed on smooth it left something to be desired. I guess my hopes may have been to high and I wanted it to have the finish of Laura Mercier's mineral powder. When the intensive makeup was discontinued I decided to try the IT base hoping it would be a good replacement. But wow it's like the opposite of intensive. It is very light and I consider it to be more of a finishing powder. It is buildable but you end up using a lot of product for less than stellar results. I probably wouldn't buy this again... but if you're looking for something light that wont break you out or irritate sensitive skin, than this might work for you.
