I love my Clarisonic Mia. Tomorow marks 1 week of use. I already see a dramtic difference in my acne prone skin. My fore-head and cheeks are clearing up! I really can't believe it because I'm only on day 6 and everything I've tried in the past seemed to not reduce my acne but only make it worse. The only thing I regret is not breaking down an purchasing this sooner. This to me has truly saved my skin. I'm beginning to feel hopeful that I too can have clear acne free skin.. I use this with the Clarisonic Hydro cleanser that came with it. My face feels so clean. I use my Mia 3-4 times a day. Weird to say it wakes me up in the morning- my face feels squeeky clean, and I cannot go to bed without using it. My chin area purged a little bit and then bam the bumbs were gone.
For me this gloss is "old school" something I would buy to wear when I was in middle-high school. I bought this one tonight and another and I'm inlove all over again. These cheap little babies rock! Probably not the best for people who don't like the metallic lip gloss look. Smells amazing and tastes exactly how it smells. I really really am Loving this! I will def repurchase this over and over along with others.

Since I got this almost two years ago.. I cannot go back to using a regular flat iron to straightening my hair - because alls they do is A) OVERHEAT B) DAMAGE my hair so bad and C) Make it awefully flat and too stick straight.... Eeeeek! What was I thinking all of those years?!?! Soo glad I invested in this awesome tool. The only thing is I worry about the bristols not lasting as long as they should for 100 bucks. I honestly don't think it' worth 100. Maybe half the price - and they really need to figure out a better protector for the barrel, I have caught the side of my face with it a couple of times. Luckily it is set to the perfect temp. that it didn't leave any burn marks. Also, the loud noise if the rotating barrel is annoying and I find I can't use this when my toddler is napping in the other room.. It wakes him up. It's that loud. HOWEVER I really do value this styling tool- it really delivers for me. I USE product in my curly hair ... Crazy if you dont. You need product to tame fly aways, protect hair from heat damage, to make silky, soft, and sleek.. Maybe that is why it's not delivering results you should get because some of you said you didnt use product beforehand.... That's a no no to me. Cuts my hair styling in time in half- I have long hair almost past the middle of my back - I put my product in then let my hair air dry. Then I go through it really quickly and get awesome volume, shiney sleek bouncy straight but not stick straight hair.
This lipstick is LE. I really do like it on my NC45 skin. It's really pretty in the tube and a different lipstick than what you would normally see.. So I will keep it and wear this through winter. It's not mauve at all. A very sheer silver grey. I really like it... If you like unique l/s and are able to find this one, I suggest you get it:)
I admit when the MUA at Sephora suggested I only use my hands to apply I thought-no way lady, this isnt the foundation for my sensitive acne prone skin. But took a sample anyway to try out..I did as she suggested and applied some product on with clean fingers. I am in love with this foundation. I didn't need much and thankfuly there's still plenty of sample product left. I really, really like how it feels light weigh and gives the perfect healthy glow. I will be purchasing the full size bottle and rotating between my MUFE HD because that was my staple before trying this gem out. Nars rocks for this one!!
I was soo excite to get this lipstick in the mail, I thought for sure this was gonna be my perfect coral match. Reel Sexy and Ravishing don't work either. It is so bright on my NC45 skin it looks like a cheap lipstick on me:( Really wanted to love.. Maybe I will try with a l/l and a light dabbing motion.
Subculture makes all my light pink lipsticks blend in on my lips beautifully. It even made snob a nice wearable color for me... Without this lipliner snob just sat in my makeup trunk. Lasts a really long time and feels good on my lips.
Benefit Watts Up! highlighter will always be my absolute favorite. It's everything I've ever imagined and more. The packaging is so cute, although I don't use the sponge end because I blend with a blush or bronzer ontop, I rarely wear this with nothing over top. Doesn't break me out either which is a nice plus on my very sensitive skin. I'm a NC45 in mac for reference and it shows up beautifully on me and in pictures. Some highlighters are way too "white" and sparkly on me. So glad I tested this on my hand and instantly knew it was a perfect match. On my second one and will continue to repurchase.
Lip Gloss -E.L.F. - Studio 2 in 1 Conditioning Gloss (all colors)

Bought this randomly at a store. Has lasted me sooo long although I use it often, as a top coat on most of my lipsticks and even as a shine on other glosses. Think I paid a buck or 2 and I honestly LOVE and prefer this over my higher end glosses. I love sticky gloss. This is moist on my lips and feels great. Gives awesome shine. I need a back up and actually just prefer it to be clear. Although I can now get the center gloss.. Love love love. I will buy several once this runs out.:)
Bought this months ago and when I first tried it on at Sephora I was inlove. Then it flaked on me and the tube didn't last. This belongs at the dollar store if you ask me. Besides the packaging and first application this IS one of the worse mascaras I have ever purchased, shocking because I adore Benefit cosmetics.:(
Just purchased this mascara today after doing some Christmas shopping with my hubby. I actually ment to grab lash injection and my heart dropped when I opened the tube and saw the bristles on the wand. To my pleasent surprise it thickened and lengthened them pretty nicely. My eyelashes don't feel heavy with a couple coats of this which I like as well. I think I found a pretty good mascara.. Even on accident. Paid 21.00 at Sephora.:)

Absolutely LOVE this lipstick. BEST purple EVER! I kid you not! I feel super sexy and bad as$ when I wear this and my husband even likes it! I really wish I had a back up!!
I love love love this lipstick. I've been HC obsessed since forever. The packaging is sooo fabulous and cute. I wish I could come across a back up of this for myself. Beautiful shade of pink too.
Chatterbox has been on my W/L of MAC L/S for awhile now. I'm so glad I was able to get this lipstick in the mail today. I love it. I feel really cute and adorable in it. I think it's the perfect pink for summer and on my NC45 skin tone. Def. a happy color and I need a back up now ;)
Just got Lustering in the mail today. It has been on my WL for a while now and every time I went to get it, it was sold out. I don't live anywhere near a MAC counter so when I travel somewhere it's one of my first stops. And after two weeks at a MAC counter it was still sold out..... I am stoked to have it finally. I absolutely love this Pink shade. It's not too bright or too sheer. The perfect color for every day wear..stunning on my NC45 skin. I know I will be reaching for this often! Loooove. Thanks MAC! :-)
