Top/Base Coats -L.A. Colors - Hardener-Strengthener

Amazing basecoat. I used to use SH Nail Quencher but have been on the search for another since it was discontinued. This stuff makes polish wear like iron and is only a dollar. Who could ask for more?
I really wanted to like this because I have been looking for a light floral musk, something right out of the shower clean smelling however on me this just smells like a cheap powdery-musky perfume. On a positive note it doesn't give me a headache like other drugstore perfumes can so its not offensive or anything.
I have combination skin NC15. I bought this in ivory and it was a good match. Has a matte finish at first with a satin finish towards the end of the day and stays put. I really liked the coverage and finish howerever by the 2nd or 3rd day it started breaking me out pretty badly and this was the only new product I was using. I would not recommend for acne prone skin. Otherwise this is a nice foundation.

Polishes -Sally Girl - Sally Girl - Nail Color - general

This is one of the worst nail polishes ive used. They go on far to sheer and dry to a matte finish. It really does look as if I colored my nails with a marker or highlighter. They are only 99 cents but even then I think they are a huge waste of money.
Lip Gloss -Unlisted Brand - Claires plumping lip gloss

This is the prettiest pink shimmery gloss that makes lip look fuller without burning or stinging. Its not gritty and not overly sticky. Looks great alone although the pink doesnt show up it does leave a beautiful shimmer. put it over a lipstick to add shine and shimmer or under a too dark lipstick to make it look beautiful.
This is a great everyday fragrance for someone in their 20s-30s Im not a fragrance pro so i dont know what notes it has but i always get compliments when i wear this by men and women. Overall very pleasant scent.
I dont know why this doesnt get better reviews. It doesnt flake or smudge and yes it does take a bit loner to put on than mascaras with big wands, but you only need 1 coat to get beautiful long thick lashes. I think this makes your lashes thicker because the brush allows you to coat both sides of your lashes.
Masks -Unlisted Brand - Aztec - Indian Healing Clay
deedrr 10/19/2007 7:22:00 PM
This is the only mask i have used that really does pull junk out of your pores. It really tightens your skin (to the point where it is almost uncomfortable) and it gives your skin a nice glow for the next day or two after you use it, Plus it really seems to clear up your skin. Another great thing about this is that you can add whatever you want to it and make your own custom mask. I use 1/2 water 1/2 acv. on a side note, this does make your skin pretty red for a couple of hours but that does go away the glow you get afterwards is worth it
Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand - Microfiber cloths

This is HG! I bought a big pack of cleaning microfiber towels from sams club and use them morning and night. They clean off every trace of makeup and get rid of flaky skin better than an aha would. My skin feels so soft now and i get pimples alot less often now. You can get these at walmart too in the kitchen or car cleaning section just look for something soft that says microfiber.
This is the perfect ylbb product. It adds the perfect hint of color. This is great to just throw in your pocket on low maintainance days.
Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Aquafina Advanced Hydration Hydrating Facial Spray

I have been using this to set my mmu and it works so great for this. If i am using a more matte mmu it makes it a little more dewey and comfortable. I would definately recommend using this everytime you face feels a little tight and/or masklike after you have put on makeup it makes your skin feel alot better and look more natural.
Lip Gloss -Bare Escentuals - Buxom Lips Lip Gloss in Amber

Im glad this was free with my sephora purchase. I didnt notice any plumping qualities, even though it tingles. And there was barely any color. If you want something like this but better i would go with the lip lites vanilla by bonne bell (if they still make it). same vanilla cake flavor but with more color and without the tingle.
Makeup Brushes -Philosophy - The Supernatural Brush
deedrr 10/18/2007 6:09:00 AM
I hard a hard time figuring out how to use this brush but i tried using it to press the mmu into my skin kind of tapping it on and it seems to work pretty well that way, probably better coverage than if i used a kabuki. This brush is probably too firm to use with blush or anything other than foundation, I havent tried it with liquid yet but i will update if i do. I didnt like this brush enough to buy it again if i suddenly lost it but i didnt dislike it enough to return it.
Foundations -Philosophy - the supernatural airbrush canvas

I had to get rid of the applicator but this foundation is amazing! I have combination skin with some dry patches and i was concerned about trying mmu but as long as i use a moisturizer it doesnt accentuate them at all unlike alot of liquids i have tried. It has an almost creamy feel to it and it has a satin finish, not matte but not all glowy either just perfect and looks like real skin but better. The lightest shade is almost too dark but the good thing about mmu is that you can buff the edges and you cant tell at all. The only real problem besides the color would be the price so while im using this i will keep my eye out for a lower priced alternative.
