This is yet my fav product by Almay... I like that the tip of the liner is so thin. I get so many compliments and ppl always ask what liner I use. I have no complaints about this product. It doesn't smudge. I use the black and I love that it dries looking wet and stays on all day.
I've never had a acne problem until I was an adult... I had it so bad that it made me depressed and desperate to get rid of it. One of my girlfriends told me about this upon seeing it on Dr. Oz. I thought to myself hey it wouldn't hurt to try this. I'm so glad I did... I use tamanu oil religiously. I use it in the morning before I put on my makeup and again in the evening after my shower, before bed. FYI once you start using this oil, your skin will look like it's getting worse, before it starts getting better... So, don't give up!! Within a couple of weeks of using this, I saw that my acne was going away and noticed that my skin looked healthier with a natural glow to it. It has helped with reducing the appearance of my acne scars by helping it fade, diminish and become less noticeable. I've used the tamanu oil by New Chapter and Natural Styles. I would say that purchasing the 1 oz lasts about 6 months. You only need to use a couple of dabs of this oil in your T zones and you just rub the product in in a circular motion. There are so many benefits to this product too.. It can be remedies for joint pains, arthritis, bruises, oozing wounds, chapped lips, help prevent wrinkles, acne, stretch marks, and preventing diaper rash. This is yet the best beauty secret I've discovered! I highly recommend this product!
Mascara -Maybelline - Hello Kitty Volum' Express Mascara

Ok for all of you are curious about this mascara.... Yes this mascara does exist! It is exclusively sold in Japan. All I can say is I've tried many many different mascaras in my lifetime and this tops my top 5. I came across this mascara while internet surfing for a comparable mascara to my all time favorite mascara: Lancome Fatale which has been discontinued. I have long, thin, straight Asian eye lashes and it's hard to find mascara that holds up a curl or stays on all day without flaking or smudging. I love the unique wand, it's almost like a mini comb. I like how dark this mascara goes on and it separates each lash with every sweep. It doesn't go on clumpy and you only need 2 coats! I gave this mascara 4 lippies... only because it is hard to find.. I've been purchasing this through ebay. I must... add if you are a Hello Kitty fanatic, you will love the packaging!!
This is my all time favorite perfume! I had purchased this back when they had the Alexander McQueens limited edition. I've gotten so many compliments from family and friends; strangers have even came up to me and have asked what I was wearing. The smell is so unique. I only wear this on special occasions because it is pretty pricey, but well worth the splurge! I'm so glad that Givenchy had brought this back. For a long while.. It was very hard to find.
Oh my gosh... I found the bronzer brush at TJ Maxx for $6! They are yet the best bronzer brush I've used. The bristles are so soft and brushes on so easily. It's kind of a bummer that these brushes are hard to find. Otherwise, I got no complaints.
Blush -E.L.F. - Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder

I purchased this product after seeing this on the dup list on Pinterest. I've always wanted to try the Nars blush, but I'm glad I tried this one. I have olive tan skin and this peach color blush does wonders on my skin. It gives my face a natural glow. I love that this product has the conturing powder which matches perfectly to my skin.. not too dark nor too light.
I love how light this powder goes on... This is the most natural looking foundation I've tried! I use to MAC C40 and it has been discontinued and I was on a mission in finding a new powder. I love that I don't have to use very much for full coverage! After using this product, it has helped me with my acne and lessen the break outs. I highly recommend this product. The other benefit is that this powder lasts a long time. I would say for my last purchase it lasted me 11 months!
This is yet the best product to use if you love mascara! I ran across this product after a hunt of purchasing a really good mascara since the one I love had discontinued (Lancome Fatale). I love very dramatic lashes and after using this formula I seriously can pair this with any mascara, even the drug store ones! It holds curls and makes your lashes thick!!! Once you apply this, you don't have to wait until it dries, you can sweep on your mascara without a mess. I'm Asian and have long thinned eyelashes and I'm so glad I found this. I've also tried other mascara primers and nothing compares to Lancome's quality!
