Moisturizers -Olay - Complete Defense All Day Moisturizer SPF15

I have been using this in both the combination and sensitive formulas religiously for the last seven years. It's a lightweight moisturizer with added SPF and it's never broken me out. It's also doubled as a makeup remover for me in a pinch.
I really like this foundation! I've been using it for about five months and have gotten plenty of compliments on how good my "skin" looks. I usually apply it with a stippling brush for my everyday look, so my freckles show through, and with fingers for full coverage. I have to make sure to moisturize my skin really well, as it can look cakey and dry otherwise. Also, if I use too much at once, it has a tendency to "ball" up, but that helps to make sure I don't overdo it. The oil control isn't too good, especially as I have combination skin, so blotting is a must after 4-5 hours. Definitely repurchasing as my jar is nearing the end.
I originally got this e/s for a crease color but lately I've been using it for my brows with an angled brush. A great neutral medium brown color that should be a staple for everyone. But I'm looking for a bit darker brow color.

I actually really like the jewel on top. This is a really good go-to for smokey eyes. There's a choice of browns or greys or you can mix and match. I bought this especially because it had satin taupe and carbon in it. Two staples and I use the darker brown for my brows. This was a great buy.

I'm glad this doesn't break me out. It gives me the most fresh, radiant glow. The formula is pretty this and liquid-y, but it still covers my acne scars pretty well. I actually sort of like the scent, and it does fade after a little while. Really natural looking. EDIT: This product has been discontinued. I really wanted to repurchase it..
This peachy-orange color was my go-to gloss during the summer. It has great lasting power and the pigmentation and shimmer in it is really nice.
A really nice, flattering, sheer pink/coral color. I'd repurchase if it wasn't discontinued right after I bought it. The formula is really smooth, but also extremely soft. I'm pretty sure with constant use, this would be gone in no time. So it doesn't get a lot of love, just because I don't want to use it all up.

I really like this. The scent is amazing. It's not as moisturizing as I'd like but it leaves a slight shine on my lips. Not too waxy or thick, but smooth and not sticky.

One of my first lipglosses. I love Pink Slip for a bit of shine. It lasts a decent period of time. A really nice lipgloss through and through.

I love using this on my lips. Keeps them super soft and moisturized even in the harsh winter weather, especially when I slather some on at night. I always keep a small travel tube on hand.

I bought Nude Shine way back when Cover Girl first came out with it. I love how smooth and moisturizing these lipsticks are. On my lips, it gives me more of a creamy peachy-nudish color with a lot of shine. It doesn't last too long, but I don't mind reapplying in public because of the shiny holographic packaging. Would repurchase but I want to try other colors.
Lip Gloss -Urban Decay - XXX Shine Lip Gloss in Disco Inferno

This is discontinued now, but I've had it for a while. This looks pretty scary in the tube, but on the lips, it's pretty sheer. I love the blue microglitter in it. It's so pretty, but once the gloss wears off, it can be a little gritty. It's a really pretty and unique gloss.
I love the packaging of NARS products. Laguna is definitely a cult favorite and I can see why. The slight shimmers in it give me a glow. I bought it specifically for the winter because Casino was starting to be a little too dark for me and I had to apply it with such a light hand, I figured I might as well get Laguna. I've only applied it all over for a dewy tanned glow, and have yet to try contouring with it. I prefer a more grey-toned powder for contouring.
This powder foundation provides SPF 15 and light to medium coverage. I'm a NC25-30 and wear it in 30 Nude. I always apply it with either my Ecotools powder brush or my Ecotools kabuki brush if I need more coverage. Super quick for a flawless face. It can be powdery at first, but once it settles, my skin looks natural and glowy. It covers well and lasts all day. I've already hit pan and I'm getting ready to buy a back-up. EDIT: I repurchased this twice but can't seem to get it to work for me anymore.. Maybe it's because it's summer but it just turns my skin into an oil slick. Won't be repurchasing.

I bought this back in April for prom. It's super light but keeps me matte. I recently rediscovered it in my makeup drawer. You can reapply during the day and it never looks cakey. I originally thought the MA color matched me incorrectly but it's pretty translucent and it works well in the winter since I've lost my tan.
