I don't want to jinx it and speak too soon but I have been using this for two days and absolutely love it. I use the shade Jackie Oates (i'm MUFE HD 117, about NW10-15) and the shade matches me perfectly. I apply it with a flat top foundation brush to the center of my face and blend outwards. Covers my active breakouts and my scars as well as corrects redness. The packaging sucks but it's worth it, and it's not that much more than a drugstore foundation and is fairly natural so it's definitely worth it!
Conditioner -L'Oreal - Advanced Haircare - Total Repair 5

This is hands down the best conditioner I have tried. I have thin, dry, damaged hair and my hair felt and looked amazing after just using this once. Didn't weigh my hair down and for the first time my hair feels silky. Smells amazing, cheap, works like a dream. AMAZING!
Tinted Moisturizer -NARS - Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer

I loved this so much but it broke me out in horrible cysts. It's been a few weeks and my skin still hasn't fully recovered. :(
Holy crap I love this! Perfect highlight shade for me, and looks so great on my shoulders and collarbones for going out. Only negative is that it has mineral oil, so I don't like using it every day. Will definitely buy again though!
I absolutely love this stuff. It is so pigmented and lasts forever. It has a nice matte finish but is not completely flat. Very flattering on my NC15 skin. Like other people have said it's a tad bit drying and does not go well with chapped lips, but at around $3.00? SO worth it.
Loose Powders -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Loose Powder

I really enjoy this powder. I have worn it while being photographed with flash so I don't know why people are saying it gives them a horrible white cast...maybe applying too much? This makes my face look airbrushed and pore less and makes my makeup last all day. winner!
I loved this the first few times I used it, but as another reviewer mentioned, it made my eyelashes so brittle that they were breaking and falling out. not okay with that. won't ever use this again.
Liquid -Almay - Clear Complexion Blemish Healing Makeup

I have only been using this for about a week, but it is the only foundation that has not broken me out. Even smooth operator broke me out in horrible cysts. I like this okay, but i'm scared my skin is going to freak out if i stop using it. I am also very surprised this didn't dry my skin out, because i have extremely dry skin. I use my VitaZing underneath and things seem to be going alright. I'm NW10-15 and can wear both Ivory and Buff.
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - 8-pan Palette "Comfort Zone"

This palette is so much better than any expensive palette that I own. So pigmented, soft and wears so well. Lot's of fallout because the shadows are so so soft, but whatever it's 5 bucks. So great.
Treatments -Desert Essence - Tea Tree Oil (100% Pure Australian)
alliemily 1/3/2012 12:47:00 PM
I use the 100% tea tree oil from trader joes and it is amazing. The second I feel a pimple coming on I use a q-tip soaked in tea tree and when I wake up the next day, it seems to be much less apparent. I really only get the occasional cystic pimple so I don't know how it would act for any other. I love this stuff though! Smells so awful though, makes me want to vom.
I really like this palette. I have the original and I can't say I like the new one better, but it is definitely more suited to my ultra pale skin tone. I can dig it.
Tinted Moisturizer -Tarte - Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Mosturizer (Smooth Operator)
alliemily 12/15/2011 12:29:00 PM
I am so sad about this. I absolutely love this TM; perfect amount of coverage for me, perfect match (I'm NC15 and wear shade 002 disguise or something like that haha), and lovely finish. Gave me some sweet cystic pimples though. My skin looked better than ever then I used this and it's worse than ever :( so frustrating.
I love how this mascara makes my lashes look, thick, but long and separated. The reason I would not buy it again is because it smells absolutely AWFUL. It is very perfume-y and chemical. It makes me gag every time I use it.
Most wearable holographic polish I have ever encountered. I love it. So dimensional and a flattering nude, silvery, taupe purple (if that makes sense). Ahhhh. can't say enough good things.
perfect. natural. no streaks. doesn't smell bad. lasts forever. i hope they make this forever (i have the dark and i'm an NW20, looks great and not too overwhelming)
