This powder gives the best coverage ever! I use it to set my liquid foundation after it's dried and it's awesome. It does make my t zone oily which has never been a problem for me. Other than that, this is one of the best powders I've tried.
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Intensified Day Moisture SPF 15

Love this stuff! I can't stand super lightweight moisturizers so this is perfect. It perfectly hydrates my skin, my skin absorbs it pretty quickly, and it has SPF. I have really sensitive skin and I usually can't put a regular face moisturizer around my eyes. This moisturizer is safe to put on even the most delicate areas. All around great product.
Styling Products -TiGi - S-Factor Heat Defender - Flat Iron Shine Spray

This is by far the best heat protectant I have ever used. I've tried a ton of drugstore heat protectants and high end products but nothing compares to this! The whole S Factor line smells absolutely amazing and the Heat Defender follows suit :o) This product is very lightweight but I can tell when I use it that it does the trick. There's no doubt in my mind that this protects my hair from heat damage. It doesn't wet the hair, so I straighten right after I apply it. When I was using Tresseme's heat protectant, I'd have to wait for my hair to dry after in order to straighten it. The only down side is the cost. I have quite a heavy hand when I use this because I'd rather be safe than sorry. It comes in a fairly small bottle for a fairly high price. It's worth it, though.
Stud matches my dark brown hair perfectly. Because it's a bit creamy and really pigmented, it's important not to use too much or your brows won't look natural at all. Once I fill my brows in a bit with this, it does not move whatsoever. Even if I wash my face there's still a bit of residue so I use eye makeup remover to take it off before washing my face. This crayon also puts my brows into place- almost like a wax. I've repurchased once and will again.
Highlighters -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle

Absolutely love Soft & Gentle! I haven't used many highlighters in the past but I'm glad I didn't have to kiss too many frogs to find this prince <3 Such a nice sharp sheen to it. If it's layered, it'll give a sunkissed effect. But for everyday use, just a small amount and you're looking dewy and amazing.
Cubic is an awesome rosy color and looks really good on my fair skin. IT DOES NOT HAVE ANY SHIMMER TO IT WHATSOEVER. I'm surprised Cubic isn't labeled as a matte blush. I was disappointed with that but I'm pleased to say that was my one and only disappointment.
Laguna is a nice bronzer, I just wish it had a bit more of a sheen to it. It's not worth the money in my honest opinion. It could be easily duped.
Sin is a nice color but it doesn't suit my skin tone- fair with pinkish undertones. I have to use a very light hand. I do find that this color migrates unlike Orgasm does.
I love Orgasm! The only thing is that it's very pigmented, or at least it is with the brush I use. This could be a good thing or a bad thing depending on your skin tone. I try not to have such a heavy hand because I'm fair-skinned. It has a nice shimmer to it- not all that "natural" of a glow, more like a noticeable shimmer.
