Pressed Powders -Clinique - Stay-Matte Sheer Pressed Powder

My HG face powder. It lets some oil through, but instead of looking like a grease pit, my face looks glowy. Definitely worth the price and the need to blot once in a while. Plus, I just love the square green compact. It appeals to my vaguely 70s sense of style!
Scrubs -Clinique - 7 Day Scrub Cream Rinse Off Formula
chicvintage 7/13/2009 11:39:00 AM
I use this every night in the shower before the Three step system, and it helps combat both my blackheads and random patches of dry skin. You don't need to use much, so the smallish tube will last a while.
My favorite winter foundation! But I've found that it's just not able to stand up to my extremely oily T-zone in the summer. But for the colder/less humid months, this is amazing.
Eyeliner -Clinique - Brush-on Cream Liner Smoke Grey
chicvintage 7/13/2009 11:35:00 AM
This is a great, understated grey perfect for work or school. The packaging is great, but the brush that came with it was, for me, hard to use(it was too thick to make a thin line). I'll buy this again, but might try other colors for the sake of branching out. I don't think it's an issue though, I've had this for six months and haven't even used a fourth of it. Pricey, but a good value.
I began using the three step system (level three), about a year ago after my first year of college. The combination of exhaustion, bad food, and stress had made my face look horrible: my skin was blotchy, my blackheads were out of control, and I found myself breaking out on an almost weekly basis. I ordered the three step system off of QVC (they can make anything sound good), and I have yet to regret my decision. Yes, my skin did break out initially, but that cleared up really quickly and I've reached the point where I break out once a month if at all. I absolutely believe this product saved my skin!
Powder -Clinique - Perfectly Real Compact Powder Foundation

I use the lightest possible shade for this makeup, i believe it's 102N. I think this is more of a product for people with no major skin problems(like myself), who really just need something light to even out skin tone. I bought this as my Summer makeup(easy to apply and light), and I'll buy it again when I run out!
Lip Gloss -Everyday Minerals - 'Spring Pink' Lip Gloss

This product is such a pale pink that it looks horrible even next to my extremely fair skin. The consistency is terrible, it doesn't leave an even coat of color on the lips, it clumps in places, and there is no color in others. I expected more(I'm an Everyday Minerals junky), and this product just didn't deliver.
Makeup Brushes -Everyday Minerals - Long handled Kabuki

I seriously doubt I will every have to buy this again, the quality is amazing for the price you pay! This brush allows for flawless layering of mineral foundations, which is perfect for me. The bristles are soft, never scratchy, unlike other brushes I have tried in the past.
As everyone else has done a good job of describing the product, I will just say: I got this in the sample kit, and I adore it! It is quite dark in the container, but it works well on my fair skin, as long as I don't apply it with a heavy hand!
Tinted Moisturizer -Jane - nearly foundation SPF 30

I love this product as a primer under my mineral makeup! Despite the other reviews, I thought I'd try this when i found it for cheap(under 5 dollars) at Wal-Mart. It doesn't react badly with my oily skin, and the color (fair) works well with my skin tone. The color doesn't turn orange on me, and for the price it's one of the better TMs i've tried.
Hair Color -Clairol - Natural Instincts Hair Color

I've tried soooo many of the colors in the line: Cinnaberry, Golden Mahogany, Tweed, Navajo Bronze...I love them all!!! This dye is the only one(including expensive salon treatments) that has not damaged my hair. I also adore the conditioner that comes with it. Despite it being a hair treatment, my hair always looks better after than before. It must be the lack of ammonia. Colors do run dark, though!
