i am on my second bottle of this sunscreen. in the end i think its too drying for my face, but now i just use it on my neck and chest as i am prone to hyper pigmentation there, i also use it on my body as well. i love the feeling of this sunscreen, spreads really easily and dries down really nicely. i do agree with a reviewer that it sucks the moisture out of your skin, well on my face it does and i have combination skin. so i would highly recommend to people with oily skin. for now i will use olay spf 30 on my face for everyday and if i will be in the sun for long periods of time i will use this. i also love that you get a lot of product. also i would like to note that i wore this sunscreen in the desert for 3 days (coachella music festival) i didn't burn at all, just got a little tan :)
Moisturizers -Murad - Resurgence Age Balancing Night Cream

I love this night cream, its expensive but my skin looks so plump when i wake up. I like the smell, i use a very small amount. Very moisturizing, takes awhile to fully sink in. For a night cream i prefer extra moisture and this definitely provides that
For those saying it feels sticky... This is a treatment, you need to put a moisturizer on top, it's not meant to be worn alone. I really like this product. My skin used to have little bumps on my cheeks, chin and nose (congestion) and also a lot of blackheads on my nose, using this has reduced my clogged pores. I've repurchased another bottle too: a bottle last me about 5 months, you only need a thin layer on skin. And for a treatment this is a decent price. Cant live without it :)
Eyeliner -Bobbi Brown - Long Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink

This liner is so black, which is great because with other liners that I have tried like MAC fluidline or HIP gel liners i had to go over and over just to get the intense black that i wanted. But this is very black semi-matte very opaque color. I have a fold on my eye that sometimes with liners that smudge it will create a harsh crease on me, but with this liner when it dries it does not budge! I will buy again, but it is a little pricey for a liner but very worth the price.

For a long time i had a hard time finding a product for my brows, I am NC25 with dark brown hair, my eyebrows are black, and any brow powder or pencil looked too harsh on me. So i gave this product a try and I really love it because it's not very pigmented but makes my brows look very groomed and nice, also this powder has no red undertones :) It comes with a highlighter that is also really nice, I use it sometimes for the inner corners of my eyes or to highlight my nose. I wish they did not discontinue....
Treatments (Eye) -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Eye Cream

This eye cream is very light, it wasn't moisturizing enough for me, I prefer thicker eye creams. Also, every time i put this on it burned and i didn't notice any de-puffing so i will not repurchase or recommend this eye cream.
