Got this as a free sample from Sephora; makes my lashes look very long and full. 4 stars because its very difficult to get off, leaves a stubborn waxy coating on my lashes no matter what I do. Maybe I'd buy it ..hard to say as I didn't purchase this--I'm pretty devoted to my $4 NYC mascara.
Powder -Hourglass - Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light

This stuff is incredible! It gives your skin a subtle, radiant and flawless finish; with this in your purse it's POOF instant mood lighting and seriously blurs skin imperfections. A little goes a long way; you really only need a light veil over the face with a fluffy powder brush. I'm an NC30-NC40 depending on the season and this review is for the Dim Light version. It is pricey but worth the $45 USD in my opinion.
Upon entering into my late 20s I was after something with retinol in it for nights, and this cream works beautifully. I put this on right after using my Clarisonic brush and wake up in the morning to glowing, soft skin. Plus at $9 USD you really can't beat the price! I prefer it to the RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream. The one thing I will say is it can make my skin feel a bit raw if I use it every night, so I do every other night. Also important to wear sunscreen during the day as retinol can react with the sun. I use SPF 30 (Cere Ve Facial Moisturizing Lotion). Will repurchase!
This is my favorite mascara out there! I have naturally long thick lashes and this makes them look like falsies. I think the secret is the comb brush; when I apply I slowly wiggle the brush from side to side. Once that's dried a bit I layer on another Rimmel mascara--the Volume Accelerator formula for my second coat. After letting that dry I switch back to the Glam'eyes Lash Flirt to separate them----creates a beautiful fan of lashes.
A neutral-pink shade that's like your natural lip color but better. The formula is creamy and non-drying. It is a bit pricey, but worth the money spent.
Styling Products -TRESemme - Instant Heat Tamer Spray

I am a flat iron/blow drying addict and this product saves my hair from feeling like straw. I am bi-racial with thick curly hair past my shoulders and am constantly straightening it. The Instant Heat Tamer spray smells great and helps to detangle my hair post-shower. After all my work with the hot tools is done my hair feels silky and smooth with very little breakage. Plus you can't beat the price!
Beautiful pinkish nude color, my basic go to gloss. This is perfect for work everyday or for going out at night with heavier eye makeup. A bit pricey at $24 but worth the investment. All the pigment without the stickiness of a MAC gloss.
I switched to this foundation from L'oreal's True Match because that formula felt heavy and mask like. FIT me is the same idea but feels much lighter leaving your skin with a dewy finish. Coverage wise it gets the job done, and they have an excellent range of shades (210 works for my light-medium skin tone). I like that the covereage is buildable and the cost is very affordable. The drawbacks are that it does have the tendency to migrate over the course of the day; so I'd suggest a primer--it doesn't really last without one. And it can make you look greasy. You need to use blotting papers or carry around the bottle for touch ups. I'm thinking about switching to a more matte foundation for the summer.
