Mascara -Max Factor - Lash Perfection Volume Couture [DISCONTINUED]
linus 8/1/2009 12:03:00 PM
My HG mascara. This gives me long, thick lashes that are natural looking. I ALWAYS wipe the brush off first, and never get clumping. I have no reason to try anything else, because this gives me the perfect lashes. Btw, I first tried 2000 Calorie Mascara (of which this is a type) in the 8th grade when I sent off for a free sample. I'm 33 now and have never really left. Can't speak for the rest of MF's makeup, but they sure have mascara figured out.
Liquid -Prescriptives - All Skins Mineral Makeup 16 Hour Wear / SPF 10

After several years of searching, if this isn't my HG foundation, it's pretty close. Typically if you want a somewhat luminous finish, you have to settle for something that comes right off. If you want something to last all day and still look fresh, you gotta go with a matte finish, Finally, Prescriptives managed to combine a somewhat luminous finish with hours of wear. Thank you! It feels light and at the end of the day my face looks like I just applied my foundation only an hour ago. And I found a great match for my NW 20 skin. Thank you Prescriptives!
Foundations -Almay - Almay Pure Blends Mineral Makeup

I am giving this product only 2 lippies because of the tiny amount of product in the brush. Almay need to take a look at their drugstore competitors -- all offer far more product for the same price. Otherwise, I liked it. Gave a nice luminous coverage over my foundation and was good for touch-ups. Brush was scratchy but I can deal with that.
They just discontinued my HG foundation (of course!) and since I was a little tight this month, decided to pick up a tube of this until I could shop around for a new foundation next month. Well, I may be sticking with this one! It goes on very silky and light, and really makes my somewhat blotchy skin look flawless. I took off one lippy because after a few hours it starts to shine, but a little blotting takes care of it. And what a great price!!
Shampoo -Dove - Dove Intense Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner 2 in 1

I just cut my long hair short and was looking for a good time-saving 2 in 1 shampoo. I've been using this shampoo/conditioner for about 2 weeks now and am very pleased. It leaves my hair soft, light, and silky. It's definately worth a try!
This is my HG mascara. I always came back after trying something else, and eventually quit trying other things at all! Gives me long, thick, soft lashes. Oh, and by the way, no matter what mascara I use, I ALWAYS wipe the excess off the brush first!
Self Tanners -Coppertone - Endless Summer Sunless Tanning Foam Medium/Dark

This stuff is the best....almost perfect! Goes on light and easy, dries fast, shows up fast, doesn't smell, and gives me a lovely bronze glow. It's like rubbing on water, it's so light. Whenever I try something else, I always take it back and come back to this.

I bought this based on MUA recommendations and I'm glad I did. Affordable price, good colors, covers well, and gives the natural, dewy finish I love. I really like this foundation.
