I have keratosis pilaris, which runs in my family and I never attempted to have any treatment done to have them removed. I bought this pumice bar on a whim when I saw it on sale at Sally's. When I was showering, I thought it'd give it a try on my upper arm and to my success it worked! The tiny bumps were gone!!! I was shocked! I've never felt my upper arms so smooth before!! I was thrilled cus my wedding was coming up and I thought I'd have to live with seeing those bumps on my wedding pics forever!! I told my mom and all my aunts about it and they couldn't believe it. One of my aunts had treatment done to have them removed but they ended up coming back. This was an epic discovery! At $3 a bar, it's worth going back for. I should note that It was rather abrasive on the skin so I squeezed a bit of moisturizing body wash onto the bar before rubbing my arms.
Doesn't live up to it's expectations. My shadows still creases and makes my eyelids oily to the point that my liquid eyeliner smudges on my lower lashes. I hate the packaging too, not hygienic for my liking.
I got a few sample tubes over the holidays from the SA and I was excited to test it out. I had really high hopes for this mascara as heard good reviews for it. To my dismay, the product takes tooooooo long to dry. After applying the mascara, I blinked and it transferred into my eyelids and lower eye. I was so pissed cus I had just finished applying my eyeshadow and had to remove the smudge and reapply the color to my lids!! I hate having to re-do my makeup so I found this really annoying.
Makeup Brushes -MAC - #187 Duo Fiber Face Brush (Stippling, Skunk Brush)

I have normal skin and rarely wear liquid foundation for fear of clogging my pores and breaking out. When I need to glam up for special occasions, I reach for this brush to apply MAC's Mineralize Satinfinish SPF 15 Foundation. It makes the application of the foundation appear flawless and doesn't require much product. This brush is a must have for your brush collection!
Can't live without it. I use it on my lips before I go to bed and wake up with soft, supple lips. I also recently started using it under my eyes at night as I have dark circles and bags. It's helped a bright my eyes and keep them hydrated during the day. I wish it came in a pump form cus I always get the stuff stuck in my nails. But overall, I'm happy with this stuff cus it's so cheap and helps with dry skin!
Top/Base Coats -Unlisted Brand - INM - Out the Door Top Coat

I love how this top coats dries so quick! It does go on thick and can get sticky once you start to run out but overall, I'd recommend this product. The thickness adds a layer to my polish that gives it a "gel" top coat look and protects my mani's from chips and scratches. I love this stuff!
