Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

Finally a moisturizer that works great for my oily skin. I've been using this for about a month now as part of the 3 step system. My face has cleared up and it looks more even and dewey than it ever has. THANK YOU!
Best foundation I have found! Gives you a nice "glow." Stays put...doesn't make me greasy. Smoothing out my complexion while covering up my current imperfections. Genius! :) Goes on smooth...fairly generous coverage. I've found most foundations just don't give me the cover I want...this is just right.
Scrubs -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash pink grapefruit foaming scrub

Thought it was great the first few times I used it...but then my skin got all flaky and felt like it was sunburnt!!! It is way too strong to use twice a day (per label instructions). I feel like I've aged my skin several years by using this for only 3 days. :( Grapefruit smell is very strong. I might throw it in the shower and use it as a body wash...but even for that I would only use it every few days. I actually have oily skin and I am completely dried out. Flakes everywhere. :(
Liquid -Revlon - PhotoReady Airbrush Mousse Makeup

Not the worst...far from the best. Like others have said it can be quite messy. I've tried to get just a bit out and an amount enough to cover my entire face came flowing out. Kinda pricey for drug store makeup...was close to $15 at Walgreens. I wouldn't say I hate it quite as bad as other members but I won't be repurchasing it. It's only "eh" for me.
Found this for $15 at TJ Maxx. I believe it was around 45 or 50 normally. (A bit higher than what I would normally pay for something like this.) The instructions say to use 1 to 2 times a week but I feel it is gentle enough to where you could do it a few more times a week if you wanted. It's easy to apply with the fan brush that comes with the product. Apply fairly thick so it is easier to peel off in bigger pieces or you'll be stuck peeling off little pieces everywhere! Smells nice (like a wine!) I had tiny lines around my mouth and they were GONE after 1 treatment. AMAZING. My skin feels and looks noticeably better. I will continue to buy this for as long as they continue to make it!
Somewhat pricey. But for the results=TOTALLY WORTH IT. I had a bit of sensitivity when done but nothing too severe/bothersome. If I remember right you're supposed to use these once a month? I wouldn't do much more than that...or you could probably guarantee sensitivity/pain. My teeth were dingy and not so white...just 40 minutes after removing these they were WAY whiter. Amazing. They actually stick to your teeth and you'll notice some foaming after a bit but hey it's indicating they're working! DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!!
I purchased this when cherryculture.com was having a 40% off all NYX products sale so I can't complain about the price much. Cute packaging and the mascara does definitely add length to your lashes! I've probably tried well over 15 different kinds of mascara and this is one I will repurchase.
love love LOVE this!! Did I mention I love it? Ok I know you're not supposed to sleep with your makeup on but I had a late night and did the unthinkable. ;) ..guess what...blush looks just as great this morning :) Looks natural, you can build on it if you want it to be more intense...AWESOME. worth the near 30 bucks.
Lip Liners -L'Oreal - Crayon Grande lipcolor pencil

Bought this on a whim at the dollar store :) :) So glad I did! I have it in Crimson. It goes on super smooth...long lasting, helps make whatever you put on top of the pencil last a little longer. Also helps make those smackers look a lil bigger. Definitely recommend.
Cleansers -L'Oreal - Go 360 Clean Deep Facial Cleanser

I have oily skin and it dried me out like no other! I can't imagine what this might do to someone who has even normal skin, or dry skin?...However, I would hope someone with dry skin would be smart enough to avoid a "deep" cleanser like this. I do love the little scrublet...it is a lot softer than I would have imagined. First time using the cleanser I thought wow my skin feels tight and I'm not greasy looking finally! But after my 2nd and 3rd use, my skin was so dried out I couldn't wear makeup because it looked so flakey. Disappointed :(
This is the 3rd dry shampoo I've tried and it is by far my favorite!! Tresemme's didn't really do much for my oiliness, rockstar was good but it despensed too much and I went through a can way too fast. This is perfect. Smells nice, looks like I just shampooed! (It is Tuesday and I haven't showered since Saturday...gross sure? but this does the trick when I've been lazy.) Will help you extend the life of your color.
Didn't do anything for my hair. Smelled okay...I did go through the entire bottle but will not repurchase. I enjoy "Beyond the zone's" rockstar dry shampoo over this. This can didn't despense enough, I had to spray and spray and my hair still looked greasy.
You need to break this up with a stiffer brush to really see the pigment....then you can use an angled brush after. Pretty pretty girlie pinks. Enjoy this cheap find! It last's a long time and is very inexpensive!

I love <3 love this lip butter. It tastes yummy, gives you a bit of shine and my lips feel so much softer after just one application. Not sure why reviews aren't better on this lil gem.
