Lip Gloss -BeneFit Cosmetics - Ultra Plush Lip Gloss

I received a sample of dandelion along with a mini blush of the same shade from sephora. the thing that sets this apart from the same type of lipgloss is the smell...it's what draws me to this product. i find glitter around my mouth after a while and it doesn't bother me that much (just wipe it off). i would buy this again if it was on sale cause $16 for a lipgloss squeeze tube is just too much for me. the product is sheer but not sticky, it does feel plush on the lips.
Treatments -Olay - Regenerist Night Resurfacing Elixir

This is the culprit of my recent break-outs. At first I thought maybe its something else. I didnt use this for a couple of weeks and finally I decided to try it again and again it broke me out so I stopped using it and my skin cleared. So def. this can cause break-outs. will not be finishing the bottle. I will stick to the olay serums which work really great.
First, I got the colors coral shimmer and latino. coral shimmer felt gritty on my lips and latino was too bright for me so i returned both and got dreamy and fancy. dreamy is frosty and fancy is the perfect pink i was looking for. it has shimmers and kind of frosty looking as well but the color looks so great on me that i'm willing to overlook it. for now, this is the only lipstick for me cause i'm still a lipgloss gal.
Moisturizers -Olay - Regenerist DNA superstructure UV cream SPF 30

This has a lovely texture but its too thick and sticky upon application. I will try other olay face creams that is more suitable for my combo skin.
I read the reviews on this product so I got it. I like the packaging and the light scent but other than that, I wanted to return it (my hubby lost the receipt). It's sticky and it left white flakes on my face. For a poor quality product, I think this is an expensive buy.

I love this lip balm!!!! It is thick and when i put it on i feel my lips being moisturized. the smell reminds of white gummy bear. i love that it has high spf.
This is great! I was using Revlon but it pinched so much that I had to get a new one and I've already tried the Shu Uemura and it pinched as well so I thought I'd try this and this didn't pinch at all!!!! I gave it a 4 cause I see what others were talking about the L shaped lashes which doesn't bother that much given that this curler gave me actual curls. I will repurchase.
Foundations -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Glow Sheers SPF 30

i got this because i want an spf higher than 15. i used to use olay's regenerating cream w/spf but when i ran out, i thought i'd try something diff. this feels natural and weightless and invisible but it does fade the appearance of my acne scars so that's good.
I got this in sugar coated and i like it. but then i found CG wetslicks in shimmershell and it almost has the same color except that CG is not sticky and you dont have to dip your finger in the product. its weird cause i like the slider concept but i dont like having to dip my finger in a sticky gloss. i will buy it again but just as a novelty item in my growing lipgloss collection.

this gives a nice shine on my pigmented lips so i love it. at least the one i bought, the brush wasn't soft enough so i'm hoping its not the same for all their lipgloss brushes, hopefully this one was just a fluke cause i would def. buy this shade again. this is not sticky and doesn't smell funky. other shades i've tried: crush (too glittery), peaches n gleam (ok, will prob buy again)
Loose Powders -New York Color - loose translucent powder

i love this powder! def HG material!!!! i have large pores on my cheeks and this powder seem to minimize them. i first bought the pressed powder in natural beige and at first i liked it because it doesnt cake on me but the color seem obvious so i got this and its perfect (the powder, not the packaging). i use a TM, a little blush, and set it with this wonderful powder and i get a nice polished face!!!
I thought I would be saving money on this serum but unfortunately I had to throw it away because the serum stings my face, felt like I was putting alcohol on my face. I will stick with the original fragrance free version of olay

i tried using this as an under eye concealer before and didnt work so i ignored it for a long time until a friend of mine suggested using this as an all over face powder and it kinda works!!! not full coverage of course but it feels creamy buffing it on my face and it toned down the redness on my cheeks....so now instead of using a liquid foundation, i just use this and a bronzer and it works to create a natural polished face.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Super Lustrous lipgloss in Glossy Rose [DISCONTINUED]

I'm on my second tube of this lipgloss and it's definitely MLBB. I put blistex complete moisture first and then when i apply the lipgloss it goes on so smooth and nice. i do have to reapply a lot but that's to be expected. My HG lipgloss. other shades i've tried: nude luster (great), life's a peach (also great), peach petal (opaque, milky, will not buy again), coral glow (looks too orange on my lips), pink afterglow (my go to pink color)
I am on my second bottle of this product because it works great! I use it morning and night before my Olay moisturizers. It keeps my skin clear without it drying my face. Love it!!!!
