I have been wearing this scent since I was 16 and 14 years later, it can still do no wrong. DUDES LOVE THIS SCENT. It lasts forever and gets you noticed. That is what I wear fragrance for. What more can I say?
Fragrances -Elizabeth Arden - With Love by Hilary Duff

Ok I am 30 years old and swear by this stuff. This is my favorite fragrance, which my 2 nieces try to steal from me. I love the scent and it lasts for about 6 hours on me. Gets alot of compliments from men and does not overpower my nose (which is always a turnoff if the cologne is too strong for you!) Will repurchase again and again!
I got this from my mom for my birthday last year and I love it. I dont really like heavy frangrances but I get alot of compliments with this one. Does not smell musty or old ladyish. Very sexy and grown. Will repurchase when I finally run out (it lasts for friggin ever!)
This is my HG mascara. It works for my sensitive eyes with toric contact lenses no problem. I am a get up at 3:30AM, get to school at 5:30PM and get home at 8:30PM lady and this stuff lasts all day and no smudging no raccoon eye and no irritation. Works well on my dark brown skin with jet black hair. It is kinda hard to get off though. Will rebuy even if the price goes up!
Loose Powders -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Loose Powder

Holy maJeesum! This stuff is aces! I am so oily foundation usually melts off my face. This kills that completely. I use a kabuki to blend this in well as I am a dark brown black woman and it is completely translucent (as the MA suggested, I apply this powder first, then the foundation). Then I apply my Cargo wet/dry foundation and bam, I am set for the day in the warm San Fernando Valley sun. You can get copious amounts of this in a sample form at Sephora. When my 2 samples run out, I will have no problem paying full price for it! I do not like the packaging and you may have to pat a little of the powder out on the back of your hand and use a brush to apply that way, instead of trying to get your brush in the jar. But small hassle for big improvement, trust me!
Ok so I had a gift card for my birthday for Sephora and decided to go to the Topanga Mall in Woodland Hills to try my luck. I wanted the Make Up Forever brand duo mat, but the 2 darkest colors turned ashy on my skin (looked grey like the lovely black woman from Private Practice-please makeup artists, help her out!) Anyway, the director of the store color matched me in the 2nd to last in this color scheme and it looks awesome! Does not oxidize on my dark brown skin. I am very oily and acne-prone, with this foundation I dont have to blot much and have not had any breakouts. The price went up to $32 (US) which I dont mind much. I dont like the sponge that comes with the packaging and use the complexion brush by the Sephora brand to apply instead. Hello, my fellow DDD's, try this and you may just like it!
I had a sephora gift card for my birthday and have been lemming for this so decided to pick it up. This scent somehow seems more grown up than the original princess brand not so sickly sweet and little girl like. I have gotten nothing but compliments on it from my male co workers. I do have to respray after about 5 hours but I think that is pretty long lasting as I have 14 hour days. I got the $55 dollar bottle (US) . Will purchase again if this limited edition is still available.
Masks -Unlisted Brand - Aztec - Indian Healing Clay

I love this stuff. I am acne prone with black heads and oily skin. I am also 28 and very hormonal. This stuff takes the cake. I learned to steam my face for ten minutes or so after washing with my LUSH COALFACE. I then use the mask with a little warm water in my mortar and pestle and mix. Keep on for 30 mins and wash with warm water then rub the rest off with a face towel. You will get every black head and clogged white head ever. I mean my face is super clear and has completely recovered from my MAC episode that just about made me a leper and scared to leave the house. Try it. Sold at whole foods and the vitamin shoppe.

Just read the 1 review on here and decided to order. Love this cleanser is very gentle but work extremely well for my acne prone skin. order from the vitamin shoppe only for $4.08 so a great deal in my opinion too.
Mascara -Estee Lauder - MagnaScopic Maximum Volume Mascara

I got this GWP size on ebay. I have short curly lashes and this makes me look like I have falsies. It is kinda thick so I have to wipe the wand a bit before I apply and wait for it to completely dry before the 2nd coat. But I like it alot and it is much better than my Maybelline pink and green
