This stuff is a miracle. I wash my hair at night, put a tiny bit through my hair, then sleep on it. When I wake up, my hair feels nice and shiny. It doesn't make your hair feel greasy or weigh it down at all! I've tried a lot of other leave-in conditioners, and this is my favorite :) *I have long, thick hair
I wear this practically every day. When I'm in a hurry, I just swipe it across my lid and add some mascara. It is a gorgeous color that doesn't make me look like I have pink eye :) Alone or as a base, this stuff does NOT crease!!
Tinted Moisturizer -Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20

Even though I have pretty normal skin, this left me feeling really greasy. The tube tends to leak out a lot of product, which is a waste. The coverage is decent, but I just hate how I feel after I wear this for the day. It ends up being more work than a tinted moisturizer really should be.
I get so many compliments when I wear this color! I think it would suit a wide range of skintones. The formula is not the best. It is streaky and takes 3 coats, but it dries quickly. Like most neon colors, it has a matte finish. No worries - a coat of seche vite makes it all better :) I definitely think this polish is worth it, even if you have to work with it a little. The color is so stunning.. I can quit looking at my nails when I have it on.
pros: the brush comes out with just enough mascara on it... you can apply several coats without it clumping.. it made my lashes CRAZY long and beautiful!! con: very drying.. my eyes started to water (because of my contacts), and this stuff just flaked off If only the formula was a little more moisturizing, I would definitely buy it again.
Eyeliner -Milani - Liquif'eye Metallic eye liner pencil -black

This is awesome for the waterline. I usually apply along my upper water line and wing it out a tiny bit. This pencil is very soft, so it glides on easily, but it will dull down quickly. Liquif'eye actually stayed on all day! My Urban Decay 24/7 didn't nearly as long without smudging or completely disappearing. I have Asian almond-shaped, contact-wearing, allergy-ridden eyes... And this hasn't irritated me at all. I highly recommend that you try this product. If you want a really precise line, this might not be for you, but it is perfect for the water line!!!
HG brush!!! My mom gave me this brush 5 years ago. I have used it every day since, and it is still holding up perfectly! It is so soft and luxurious. This brush makes it so easy to blend and it gives you an airbrushed finish. I have looked for other brushes to try, but by the time it gets to placing a setting powder, I have already gone back to this brush. It is definitely worth the money!
