My everyday neutral pink/nude for work. It actually shows up on my pigmented lips and doesn't look too brown or pink/cool. Love it! fyi, I'm NC 40, Asian.
I have this by my bed to use on my lips before I got to sleep every night. Cheap, simple, and effective. On my body, though, it leaves a oily sheen.. I would only use it on very dry, small patches. A must-have for the household!
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion

If you get clinique products, you have tons of these in the sample size. I would never get an actual full-sized product. I have combination skin and this breaks me out easily. I only use it in a pinch (I have one thrown in my purse) when there's a dry patch that my normal moisturizer didn't catch in the morning! It does moisturize well though, but is best for those with DRY skin!

This is my HG moisturizer for day and night.. I always come back to this out of laziness. I'm sure there are much better moisturizers out there but this is cheap, feels good and tingly, is non-pore clogging, not oily, and contains a small amount of salicylic acid. Does nothing for my skin when it is very dry though. I like the pump design, and how you can easily close it off for travel.
I liked this product at first, with the unique little light-catching "glitter" (very fine and not too noticeable). It did an OK job of controlling oil, but not great. However, I had to throw out 2 pairs of contacts because of this powder! If any little bit got into my eye, a glittery, oily film would start to spread and burn my eye. No saline or rubbing could get it off, and it blurs the entire contact! I checked the ingredients and found that it contained mineral oil (though not sure if this is true for most powders..?) and the glitter doesn't help either. I've used the Revlon Skinlights highlighting powders with no problem. My optometrist said that my soft contacts cannot rid itself of any oil that it touches.. so contact-wearers beware!!
