Liquid -Unlisted Brand - Advanced Mineral Makeup Liquid Foundation
annieSFRBeauty 12/28/2012 3:08:00 PM
I have tons of sun damage on my face from years of tanning and I hate it. I have tried a million different products to help cover it up and usually I end up feeling cakey and gross. I'm also not as young as I used to be either, and I notice foundations can make my face look and feel dry. Not this stuff! It's incredibly light weight, yet somehow manages to cover my discoloration flawlessly. I love the fact that it is a mineral base as well, it keeps my skin from breaking out. Highly recommend!
Eye Shadow -Unlisted Brand - Purely Pro 5-Well Eyeshadow Pallet

So I am not usually an eye shadow girl. I find it a bit hard to apply and it's time consuming. Until now! Holy geez...this stuff is awesome. It goes on so easily and it doesn't end up all over your face throughout the day or during the application. It's not cheap, but considering you get 5 colors in each pallet, it's totally worth the cost.
Concealers -Unlisted Brand - Purely Pro Color Corrector Wheel

In the last year or so I have been suffering from dark under eye circles. I'm guessing it's allergies and I have tried so many different products to dry and tone it down, but pretty unsuccessfully. Until now! Yeah! This stuff rocks! I put in on with a concealer brush after I moisturize and it's like the miracle cure. Thank god because I was getting desperate. LOVE!
I have bleached and processed my hair for years. I swear this product is one of the reason I still have hair on my head. The line was created by a husband and wife team who have created all of these products in their labs because the husband is a chemist. It seriously shows in the quality of their products. Everything smells amazing, treats and conditions and is made with quality ingredients. It's expensive and a bit hard to find, but totally worth it!
My feelings about this nail polish are luke warm. I really like that they have a ton of colors to select from, but the quality is not the greatest. My biggest complaint is the brush...it makes it hard to apply the polish without making a mess and getting all around your nails.
Die hard fan. I love this stuff and have used it religiously for years. I like the clean minty smell and the beeswax works wonders for dry lips. The most healing lip treatment I have tried by far.
Self Tanners -Banana Boat - Airbrush Self-Tanner with Instant Bronzer
annieSFRBeauty 12/4/2012 3:55:00 PM
Being a self tanning addict, I thought a product by Banana Boat would work well. The can and spray tip are fairly cheap, the color is minimal and it doesn't go on totally evenly. Its not a terrible product, but certainly something I would not purchase again unless it was the only option and I was desperate.
The smell of this product is beyond offensive. It actually makes me sick and doesn't even work very well. Unfortunately even if this was the best product ever I couldn't get over the foul scent. It's really bad.
I have been on the hunt for a decent mascara for a long time now. I have bought expensive and inexpensive, all disappointing. Until now. This stuff is awesome! It totally gives me thickness and volume and doesn't clump which is a huge bonus. This keeps the curl as well, so I really can't see any cons to this mascara. Really like!
You seriously can't beat this stuff, especially for the price. It goes on smooth, the pigment is rich and it lasts a long time. Pretty much the only nail polish I use!
I have white platinum hair that tends to go a bit gold if I don't use a purple pigmented shampoo or conditioner. I have tried many, but this stuff is awesome! It completely does the job without depositing extra pigment into my hair leaving it a bit purple like most. The packaging is cool, you get a good amount of it actually works. Really well. I love the smell of it too, it's quite different, but really pleasant.
Conditioner -Bumble & Bumble - Leave in Conditioner

This is a product I live and die by. I flipping LOVE this stuff. The smell is light, fresh and amazing. It is a light moisture instead of a creamy consistency, so it doesn't leave the hair heavy or greasy. I have literally used this every time I wash my hair for probably 14 years. Recently I ran out and there was a noticeable difference in my hair when I don't use it. Highly recommend!
Self Tanners -Neutrogena - Sunless Tanning Spray-Deep
annieSFRBeauty 11/29/2012 5:48:00 PM
This is not the best tanner in the world, but it provides enough color and it's easy to find almost anywhere. The color is slightly orange, but I have figured out if I use a lighter shade first and then apply the deep...it gives me a richer more natural color. I use this about 2x per week. I do recommend this, as I haven't found any better options that aren't crazy expensive.
Hair Styling Tools -Mason Pearson - Pure Bristle Brush
annieSFRBeauty 11/29/2012 5:43:00 PM
I realize it seems obscene to spend over $100 on a brush, but it is SO worth it! You'll have this thing for a lifetime. I have had the same one for 13 years and it's still in great shape and I use it a couple times a week. I've had hair dryers melt bristles on other brushes, but this thing is indestructible. Also, leaves your hair smoother than any other flat brush I have tried.
Self Tanners -Fake Bake - Fake Bake Instant Self-Tanning Spray

This will give you a killer, brown tan! I'm pretty much as white as they come and this stuff makes me look like I have been on vacation and leaves me looking golden brown instead of orange. There is one massive drawback though...this stuff is a MESS! It will leave your bathtub black and even gets pigment on the walls. It works so well it's really unfortunate. I had to stop using it because of this. I'm going to try it again when the weather warms up and I can apply it outdoors.
