I have very oily skin that tends to break out during my time of month. Although my skin is insanely oily its still very flakey around my nose and chin -_-. I honestly look like a complete mess during the summer because my skin is shiney but looks disgustingly flakey. No amount of exfoliation or heavy moisturizers would help. The SA at origins didn't recommend this to me but against her advisement I bought it anyways because I felt like I needed an intensive night product to combat the flakiness. This did the trick after a week of using it every night all of the flakiness has disappeared. Since my skin is already naturally very oily I don't really know if it will make other oily skinned people even oilier, but I really didn't have a problem with it. I did notice that the first two nights I used this product two or three small pimples popped up, but they quickly went away and I never got anymore.
Of all the lipsticks I own this is my #1. It's my absolute favorite. I imagine this coral pink lipstick would look amazing on a wide range of skin tones. I have very dry lips and this doesn't make them dry or peel.
Bright watermelon pink lipstick. I love bright colors, but unfortunately not all of them work on me, this is one that works very well on my light medium warm skin. It doesn't dry out my lips or make them peel. Of all the lipsticks I own this is my #1 bright lipstick.

Lovely pinky nude nail polish. I love wearing this on my toes because it makes them look so polished and clean. All you need is two coats. My sister isn't big on nail polish but she even loves this stuff. She told me to keep buying it forever.

This polish is a very pretty ballerina pink but it applies very streaky. I applied three coats and it still looks incredibly streaky. From a distance it looks nice but when you look closer you notice the unflattering streaks.
Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand - Jerdon's - 5x Deluxe Lighted Makeup Mirror
eyeheartyou 10/6/2012 11:19:00 PM
This mirror lasted me 5 months. I turned this mirror on this morning to do my makeup and after about 30 seconds the lights dimmed and went out, I thought it was odd so I switch the mirror off and then on again. As soon as I did the bottom portion of the mirror near the lighting switch to control the light started to sizzle and crackle, then I heard a zap and I knew it was over. I think the motor (or whatever it is) burned out because I now smell burnt plastic. It was an ok mirror; the light wasn't quite bright enough... I wasn't sure it was truly mimicking natural day light. The side mirrors were convenient when I was doing my hair. The best part of this mirror was the 5x side which allowed me to see everything on my face up close and person. Overall it was an ok mirror but I'm really upset it crapped out after only 5 months. I will know be replacing this with an Ottlite and pray I have better luck with that brand.
Lip Gloss -Clinique - Long Last Glosswear SPF 15 in Guavagold

I loved the color of this gloss in the tube unfortunately the color doesn't really transfer to my lips. My lips aren't that pigmented either. It looks really nice on other people though. It's also very sticky.
Blush -Tarte - Amazonian Clay Long-Wear Blush in Natural Beauty

I love red blushes and this is no exception. This is a very loud bright blush but when applied correctly its gives a very pretty flush. I have very oily skin so usually by the end of the day this blush fades significantly.
Blush -Tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Amused

I bought this blush for my sister but now part of me regrets giving it to her. This is a super pigmented bright hot pink blush. A little goes a long way. I ever so slightly tap my brush onto the blush and that's more than enough to get a beautiful flush. I can definitely see why these blushes are all the rave.
Liquid -Rimmel - Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation
eyeheartyou 7/15/2012 2:56:00 PM
This foundation is not meant for those with oily skin. I made the mistake of not reading everything on the package before I bought it. It has a moisturizing Aqua Primer in it. It felt sticky when applied it and even after I put powder onto of it, my face still felt sticky. The coverage is nice though, very little covers most of my problem areas. The coloring in the bottles throws you off, 103 True Ivory looks so dark in the tube but when applied it was too light however it oxidizes and is a closer to my face after a few hours.
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter - 080 Strawberry Shortcake

I love the color in the tube, however it reads very cool toned on my lips. It has a very strong purplish tint to it. Everything else about it I love but the color just isn't for me.
This mascara promises volume and length but it only delivers the latter... at least for me. It didn't make my lashes any fuller but it definitely made them longer. I quite like this mascara, next time I'll get the waterproof one.
My sister is scared of this blush but I love it. You have to be careful when apply this because it can look exactly the way it looks in the pan, loud. I use the lightest hand possible and it gives me the prettiest flush.
I bought this in Nude and its too yellow and dark for me. I imagine this would work well if I got a tan but for now it doesn't work. I think the zero transfer claim is a load of crock because when I blot I see the foundation coming off. The product also sit unnaturally on my face, like it never blends in correctly, no matter what I do.
Very pigmented product so a little goes a very long way. I use Nude in the regular colorstay so I assumed Nude would work for this as well... turns out I was wrong. This one for some reason leans pink so it looks really bad on me. The first time I used it, it seemed like it did well to control my oily skin but that was the first and only time it did that because everytime I've used it since it does nothing. That coupled with the fact that I realized it looks very pink on me it's no bueno in my book.
