It's an okay primer, it's really heavy and I don't like the way it covers my skin when I put it on. I ddn't really use it enough to see if it would break me out.
Super Expensive!!! But this is the only thing that I've found to control my super oily face. I worked out with makeup on and it stayed in place. Well once I hit the treadmill I started sweating but my face still looked okay. I don't use a moisturizer under this tho.
Cleansers -Murad - Environmental Shield Essential-C Cleanser

Eh it's alright, it's not bad but it's not wow either. I'd prefer the clarifying cleanser instead. The smell reminds me of old oranges and for the first few times of using it, it slightly stung my cheeks. It ddn't irritate my skin tho and after I wash I can feel a bit of tightness to my skin.
I love this cleanser, it def prevented my breakouts and took off my makeup, It didn't strip my skin or irritated it. I liked the feeling of my face after I used it. I purchased the travel size just to try it out and I'm thinking of purchasing the whole acne complex line since I've had a good experience with the cleanser.
Well, this is a nice highlighter, it's very subtle and you look glowy. It makes my tan skin brighten, I think it may look better at night tho since out in the daylight ppl can see that you have glitter on your face. However, it makes me a little oily..
Awesome powder from Benefit. My shade is the honey one. It controlled oil very well but it doesn't look cakey and piled on. Looked very natural and pretty. Most of benefits products are too novelty for me sometime but this one is a winner.
Yuck, that's all I got to say about this foundation. The Pur Minerals rep did my whole face and my complexion looked so ruddy, def not natural. It felt disgusting on my skin too, also I was oily after 30 minutes. I find their products overpriced and mediocre. Won't be purchasing this.

Shu Uemura's mascaras are the only mascara that holds a curl to my eyelashes, with that said, this has slight more volume that basic gives, zero lengthening to my lashes tho..
Eye Makeup Remover -Neutrogena - Oil Free eye makeup remover

Pretty good so far, I don't have to rub as much and it takes it off fairly quick, I'm still looking for one that just melts my eye makeup off in an instant tho, but so far this will do. It's cheap and it doesn't leave my eye area greasy.
Everytime I get done using this, I'd feel my nose and it's sooo smooth. I think it get rids of the gunk that accumulates from the week. I use it once a week since I got semi sensitive skin and it does leave me glowing and smooth and softer. Will def repurchase, I love it!
Scrubs -Queen Helene - Oatmeal N' Honey Natural Facial Scrub

You def can't use this product everyday. It's a little too abrasive on my skin. The smell is nice and it's super cheap. I'll prob just use it on my body since I don't think I'll use this on my face again
Love this mask, I don't really know exactly what it does, but after I use it my face is a lot softer and my complexion slighty brighter. As for my skin being smoother after...I'm not sure. But it's super cheap and fun for when I'm just sitting at home not doing anything.
A matte babydoll pink on me. It doesn't have that much blue undertones so to me, it doesn't look mauve. I'm on the fence whether or not I'd repurchase. I like to use it with other lipsticks of more of a warmer peachy shade. The staying power is pretty good since it is a matte l/s
This is an okay blush. It's not as pigmented as I would have liked, the highlighter doesn't really show up on my skin. The other two are pretty much your standard pink blushes, I just wasn't that impressed with it..
Wow well I've been using the all day cream, and recently I bought the night cream and the day lotion. This never broke me out and provided moisture when I needed it. For the night cream, it's very heavy and greasy, but no breakouts. I don't know about any anti aging benefits but as a moisturizer, it's great. I will prob repurchase when I run out.
