smells SO BAD. and tastes really weird too. other than that, i love how it feels on my lips--its not sticky at all, and it gives somewhat color. i like how it has a hint of color and is shiny! people who love extreme pigmentation glosses may not like this though. packaging is cute, but i find it hard to slide open...maybe its just mine. my favorites are berry pop and cherry bomb.
Liquid -Shiseido - The Makeup Dual Balancing Foundation SPF 17

love love LOVE this stuff! didn't break me out at all, but because i have oily skin i got oily after 3 hours but i love the consistency of it and i found a shade that matches me perfectly. it is on the pricier side, but if you dont have oily skin you should def try this out!
I got this for 8 bucks at C.O. Bigelow. I love how the two colors work together magically because I was hesitant about them in the same duo. Extremely pigmented.
Lip Gloss -Bath and Body Works - Tutti Dolci Lemon Meringue Lip Gloss

A friend of my mom's gave this lip gloss to me. I did not know it was from Bath and Body Works, I thought it was a brand like Chanel lol. Anyway, I love the way it is packaged, the tube looks very girly and delicate. The first time I used it, it was way to sparkly and creamy and looked too cakey on my lips. But later on I figured it was because I simply put too much! So later on I squirted an itsy-bitsy(seriously small!) droplet of gloss my lip. I spread it out on my lips with the top of the tube, and Voila! It looked perfectly natural but sexy! A thin shade of shimmer on my lips with a color not too heavy, I was ready to go out shopping with my friends :)
Treatments -Burt's Bees - Doctor Burt's Res-Q Ointment

"Bumps, bruises, burns, stings and scrapes need Doctor Burt's green goodness." Yes, it has worked wonders for me. I carry it in my purse or makeup bag all the time, and whenever I notice a bruise from a few days ago, a mosquito bite from last night, whatever harmful thing was acted on my skin, I take the little tin out and put it on. I usually do it once or twice a day until it completely heals. I love the natural smell of it, it also keeps me awake in class if I fall asleep lol. Also, I spotted at least 4 of my classmates out of 20 that had this product! (considering that is a great amount since most of my classmates are... nerds lol that hardly use any wonderful products there are on Earth!) I don't know why some absolutely hate the packaging of it, I think it's unique in its own special way, and the green stuff never seems to run out! I would definitley buy again if it runs out, it's always a res-q-ing product I always have to carry around :)
Eyeliner -Bourjois - Khol & Contour Eyeliner Pencil

I bought a blackish bluey of this product. When it is applied, it went on very smooth on my eye and it left a beautiful color. If you were careful enough and not too careless, it wouldn't smudge. But once I forgot I had it on and touched my eye, and a bit of it smudged. I thought it would be very black and a hint of blue, but it was actually more of a shiny turqoise with a mixture of black. It looked gorgeous with the glittery effect it had, and I got lots of compliments from other people :)
I bought the MINI version of this to try it out. It worked beautifully for me but it was kind of 'chunky'. I expected it to have lots of volume but I guess it was alright. The blackness of the mascara was perfect and it doesn't smudge! Hmmm, I may buy again but I would rather try another brand of mascara.
This is the best sunblock lotion I have ever used. It is definitely not oily or greasy at all. My face never felt itchy and the sun has never left freckles on my face since I used this :). My mom actually bought this for me, and I was like 'ugh another old mommy smelling lotion.' But actually, it has a very natural and soothing smell, that leaves my face feeling fresh and ready for the sun anytime! When it is applied, it goes soothingly gentle on your skin. Also, it wasn't very pricey and if it was it would be worth the price, in my opinion. LOVE this and would buy it again!
Sunscreen -Neutrogena - Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 30

Not oily at all, skin feels refreshed and fairly toned. The only problem I have with this sunscreen is that it smells like the chemicals of a swimming pool. If this sunblock had a better, more comforting smell, I would use it for all my life lol. I happen to find Neutrogena products great and it never disappoints me :)
Clothes -Unlisted Brand - Hollister - Cali Flare Jeans

I wouldn't consider myself extremely overweight or fat, but I may be kinda chubby. I think Abercrombie and Hollister jeans are only for skinny people with beautiful, long, skinny legs! Which is kind of sad for me :(
Hmm, I found some of their clothes were pretty ugly and were pricey too. But I bought a pair of Miss Sixty skinny jeans on sale, and they were great fit and I love the color! I would probably look for more of their jeans if they're on sale, but I wouldn't buy their tops.
