This stuff is awful. It caused huge cystic acne and I don't know why =(
I've just recently discovered zoya polishes and have been slowly replacing my collection. Since I am in graduate school for my field we aren't allowed to wear colored polishes during certain times so I made sure I got this clear base coat. I think it works wonderfully by itself to give nails shine and is a good base coat for color. I love that it doesn't have harmful chemicals. Since switching to zoya & taking calcium pills my nails are much stronger, longer, & healthier. I will continue to buy this line of nail polishes!

I love this!!!! Paired with noxzema & a BP spot treatment & vitamin E..I have clear skin for the first time in years! I will buy this forever! I hope they never discontinue it!
Pressed Powders -Tarte - Provocateur Mineral Powder
leh529 3/31/2013 12:15:00 PM
I love this powder! I use it over Tarte Bb primer & concealer. It is very sheer so it doesn't provide great coverage on its own. It doesn't break me out which is a rare thing. It keeps my combination skin fairly matte. The price is a bit steep but one compact has lasted me over 6 months now of almost everyday use. I will continue to buy since I really love Tarte products!
Mascara -Tarte - Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara
leh529 3/31/2013 12:06:00 PM
I have purchased this mascara a few times already & paired with a lash primer it is a nice natural mascara. I switch off between this one & lights camera splashes. This one gives me nice volume & length but not overly dramatic. The selling point for me on this mascara is that it comes off so easily but with primer barely smudges & doesn't flake. I like the all natural ingredients and will continue to buy though I do wish it was cheaper!
BB Cream -Tarte - BB tinted treatment 12-hour primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen
leh529 3/31/2013 12:02:00 PM
**** update** I really did want to love this, but I am afraid it has been breaking me out since I got 2 huge cystic type zits (which I hardly ever get) It makes me so sad. I might wait till they clear up and try it again just to make sure. I love this product! It has a smooth silky feel that other BB creams lack. I had been using another one that felt too mask like, but this one glides on smoothly. A little goes a long way. I got a sample from Sephora to try first & I will be purchasing as soon as the sample runs out. I pair it with the Tarte clay concealer & mineral powder- perfect all natural makeup look. This will be nice in the summer too because it is so lightweight. The color match is a little darker since I have light medium skin & I wear medium in this. The coverage is good for a BB but i use the concealer to provide extra for my mild-moderate acne. I set it with powder & I'm good to go! I will definitely keep buying this as long as I continue to be breakout free!
Tinted Moisturizer -Tarte - Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Mosturizer (Smooth Operator)

I was really excited to try this product as I love Tarte powder & concealer, but this made me break out. Also the color match wasn't great. I have since moved on to the Tarte BB primer & love that. If this doesn't work for you, I would suggest trying that.
Lip Gloss -Urban Decay - Lip Love Honey Infused Lip Therapy- Lolita
leh529 5/30/2012 1:43:00 PM
I love this lip gloss! I bought it in drizzle and failbait. Drizzle is a perfect everyday gloss. It goes on pretty clear with a very faint pink tint but due to my lip"s natural color you can't really see it. It just leaves me with soft, moisturized, glossy, beautiful lips! I am picky when it comes to lip gloss, but I love these. The only issue I have with them is that they don't have a lot of staying power, but even still the tube will last a long time!
I bought the trial set with the whole tea tree line. I really wanted to like this , but it was just awful! I used the wash, toner, and tea tree oil for about 4 days and my skin became so congested with acne! it's the worst it has been in years. the set went straight into the trash!!
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Tanda Skincare System
leh529 5/6/2012 11:17:00 PM
I was always on the fence about this product and even though i returned it I am still not sure about it. I am sure this would work for some people but it really wasnt the miracle I had been hoping for. If you have more than 3-4 pimples then this product is not for you. Since you have to treat every pimple individually it took a ton of time to do my entire face and I did not see any miracles after a week and a half of 2x a day use. My bestfriend also bought it and loves it but her face is clearer then mine. I just didnt have the time to be spending 15-20 mins every morning and night standing there zapping zits when an acne gel can clear my face in less time.
i got this in a set of Aquolina Pink Sugar at Ulta. I bought the set because it was 49 dollars for 3 products including a 1.7 oz of the regular perfume for the same amount as just the bottle by itself. I love the hair perfume!! I use it on a daily basis in my hair and as a light body mist. I find it has just the right amount of scent without being overwhelming. I can't really say that it makes my hair softer because I use other products in my hair before the perfume that could be contributing to that. I love the scent though and love how it lingers in my hair especially when it is wet. it does not last all day though, unfortunately. My boyfriend also loves the smell and constantly comments on how good my hair smells. the only problem I have with it, is the packaging is cheap. The top to my bottle crack with in the first week of me owning it so it makes it more difficult to travel with but that's not a huge issue. I would buy this again!!
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum Express The Falsies Flared
leh529 2/1/2012 3:53:00 PM
I was a little skeptical to try this mascara since i hated the regular falsies mascara but I needed a cheaper mascara. I picked this up at target a little less than a week ago and I am impressed with it. The wand is similiar to that of the colossal mascara but it is curved which makes it nice for lengthing and volumizing lashes. It doesnt make my lashes look false but it does give them nice length and volume with little to no flaking. My favorite part about this mascara is I have it in waterproof and it comes off so easily compared to other waterproof mascaras so that makes me happy. I will buy it again!
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Foaming Facial Cleanser - Sensitive Skin
leh529 1/15/2012 11:05:00 PM
I have been using this product for awhile now. I use it at night after I exfoliate with the St.Ives green tea scrub (which i also love) and it makes my face feel so clean and smooth. I have very sensitive/acne prone skin and this does not irritate my skin or cause more pimples. The price is very reasonable especially for a poor college student. The pump bottle is nice but every once in awhile I will get a bottle where the pump sticks so that can be inconvenient I first learned about this product from my boyfriend who has sensitive skin and this is the only cleanser he will use. . i have repurchased this a number of times for me & my boyfriend-it is a definite HG!!
Cleansers -Unlisted Brand - Neaclear Liquid Oxygen Acne Wash (with Salicylic Acid)
leh529 1/14/2012 12:30:00 AM
I have been using this face cleanser for awhile now and have seen a massive change in my skin. I have had acne since I was 16 and I am 23 now and have finally found a product that makes a difference in my skin after trying almost every product out there from high end to low end. I find the price to be very cheap for the amount and quality of this product. my face is not completely clear but it is greatly improved. Every time I try a new face wash I immediately come back this one; The only issue I have is that it is only available at my local Ulta and they are frequently out of stock. You can also order it online. It's definitely HG for me for sure.
I bought this product after my best friend told me that it made her hair "amazing" and it was her new HG. . I have to say I am impressed with this product. Using it a long with the conditioner my hair seems to be less frizzy and shinier and I have seen some slight hair growth. My hair also does not come out as much when I put other prodcuts in it afterwards. I have a sensitive scalp and find if i wash my hair too many days in a row it does get irritated but overall I am impressed with this shampoo and conditioner and the price cant be beat for the amount you get. I got mine @ walgreens for 6.99 but saw it last night @ sallys for a little cheaper. I will no longer be buying expensive high end products...this is quickly reaching HG status.
