Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack

This is the best eyeliner I've ever purchased!! It looks like a liquid eyeliner, but is so much easier to apply and create a accurate and professional eyelined look. It comes off easily with make up remover and the color will stay vibrant all day. I love this eyeliner and will repurchase again and again.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

I love this moisturizer! But you have to be careful to buy the GEL rather than the LOTION. The Gel is significantly lighter on your face and easier on us combination skinned people! Has a slight fresh scent that I love and it is so easily accessible (any department store carries Clinique)
Most versitile product on the market! You can use this stuff for everything! I put it on my lips before I go to bed at night to prevent chapped lips, I use it on my cuticles, elbows, any dry patches on my skin, on my eyelids for a dewy look... everything! No smell, no color, absolutely amazing product -- a must have for anyone.
It went on very natural--- too natural. It looked just like my normal lashes but slightly curled (an eyelash curler could have done the same job) when I looked in the mirror late on in the day I saw black flakes underneath my eyes from this product... yuck. I wouldn't waste your money.
I used this product in High School when my skin was oily and very acne prone and it worked wonders for me! I was totally clear and way more confident.... but then in College-- after my second year my face started breaking out again so I thought I'd try proactive again because it worked so well the first time, but since my skin wasn't as oily as it used to be, it made my skin so dry and flaky and just awful looking. I would not repurchase now that I am in my 20's but while you're in your teens, I think it's a really good option...
This is the best drug store product I've ever purchased. Not only is it dirt cheap to buy, but I think that it can honestly hold up against the more expensive brand names. This is my go to mascara and the brush allows for either a really natural look (just a little more volume) or you can work it so it gives the fake lash look. I would recommend this product to everyone and if you don't like it, well then atleast it isn't a lot of money wasted :)
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

Urban Decay Primer Potion was my first eye primer I've ever bought. The ladies at Sephora were raving on and on about this product and it's amazing-ness, and sure, it keeps your eyeshadow from creasing, but to be totally honest -- I'd much prefer MAC's paint pots as a base for my eyeshadow. They add a little more depth to the shadow than Primer Potion...
I love this product!! It is my go-to every day eye shadow when I don't have time to mix a lot of products. It looks amazing on my skin tone (very fair) and is totally work appropriate. It has quite a lot of shimmer (which is still a "young" look) and I cannot say better things about this product. Amazing.
I've heard SO much about All That Glitters eye shadow, so of course I bought it -- I wanted to see what all the hype was about. Overall, I do think it is a beautiful eye shadow! The color is a lovely shimmery peach, but it's not TOO shimmery. I mix with Bare Study paint pot for a long lasting neutral look with some Sable in my crease. A great buy, totally worth purchasing! Although -- it tends to be sold out in the palette form at my local mac counter, so be sure to ask for it :)
Amazing Bronzer! I am fairly pale and it doesn't come on orange like most bronzers I've tried. Although it is very expensive for a bronzer, it is totally worth the price. Can go on sheer or you could build the color. Love this product!
Overall, I really love this lip gloss! The only thing preventing me from giving it a 5/5 is that the color is pretty misleading. It is a baby blue/minty green lip gloss, but when I apply it on my lips (which are pretty pigmented) it creates a really pretty bubblegum pink sheer glossy look. Not too sticky for a MAC gloss and overall I would totally recommend this product.
Lip Treatments -C.O. Bigelow - My Favorite Lip Balm
emilyrose37 7/13/2010 12:32:00 PM
I found this at Bath and Body Works and they were having a lip gloss buy 2 get the third free sale. I bought my favorite lip balm and it's my favorite of the three I bought without question! It goes on SO smooth, gives a subtle shine and has a lovely almond/shea butter smell to it. You do have to apply it pretty often as it does slip off my lips quite easily. But for an everyday lip balm, I would for sure recommend this product.
