Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - Colour Caresse Shine Stain / Shine Caresse

Love this product and a great (affordable) dupe for YSL's version. I bought Rose On and On, but will be going back to purchase another shade or two.
This is the perfect for the "no makeup" look and is part of my daily makeup routine. Initially, I couldn't decide if I was going to buy it because it was $22 CND for the pot (for value, I'd recommend buying the NAKED palette, though I didn't because after much thought I decided I wouldn't really use any of the other colours very often and am on a budget). If you're undecided, *buy it.* The colour has great pigmentation is long lasting. The quality makes the buying price worth it, especially if you're looking for a wearable eyeshadow.
Deodorants -Unlisted Brand - Ombra Mild Deo Roll-on

This product is a part of my daily routine. If possible, I like that the products I wear every day have very few, if any, scary ingredients and this is most true about my deodorant. If you need a mild deodorant this does the trick. It also comes in a lovely glass bottle which I love.
I absolutely love this colour! It's not too plum-coloured or too light. I was tempted to give this a rating of three, because the colour seems to flake rather easily even with a high quality top coat and is a bit watery (compared to other brands), but I've given it a rating of four because it's affordability and lovely colour make up for it! Sally Hansen is great at providing trendy colours at a completely affordable rate.
Top/Base Coats -Sally Hansen - Diamond Flash Fast Dry Top Coat

I'm frustrated with myself for taking this long to try a fast-dry top coat! It's the first one I've tried and it makes all the difference and I'm not waiting hours for my nail colour to dry... This is now a must have in my manicure routine.
Polishes -Sally Hansen - Xtreme Wear in Wet Cement

Though I gave this a four star rating because it is a bit watery and tends to flake more than other brands (even with a quality topcoat) but it is absolutely affordable and is a fantastic colour.
Eyeliner -Bourjois - Khol & Contour Eyeliner Pencil

A great eyeliner but I wouldn't say that it lasts 16 hours. It's still prone to smudging but is not greasy.
I'm rather indifferent to this mascara and I most likely won't be buying it again. I like the wand, but not a great fan of the product itself which stays wet for a little while. I think there's nothing all that exceptional about it and my opinion is that there are better drug store mascaras than this one.
Powder -Cover FX - Powder FX Mineral Powder Foundation
alwaysalice 7/25/2012 9:09:00 PM
I have acne prone and combination skin. I wanted something I wanted cover without looking cakey and found what I was looking for with Powder FX. It's the best coverage I've ever had. Covers wonderfully and you can also use it as a concealer simply by layering the powder over blemishes with an eyeshadow brush (or similar). A bit expensive but absolutely worth it. Bonuses are that it's SPF 10, oil absorbing, and is free of oil, parabens. Perfect for all skin types but excellent for those prone to acne. Although, I do find that towards the end of the work day I have to dab at my face with an matte sheet to absorb a bit of oil, but then problem solved. I highly recommend this.
