in terms of color matching, this is the truest shade to my skin tone that i've ever found. this formula blends in perfectly. i like natural looking make up, so this is the perfect foundation for me. be aware that the coverage is very sheer. if you have acne or not so-great-skin this is definitely not for you. the first time i applied it i got nervous because it was so dewy and i looked oily. the sales woman assured me that this was because the formula is water based. i was surprised because i have normal skin that rarely ever gets oily. after a few minutes though, it sunk into my face and looked MUCH better. i recommend setting it with a powder for a more matte finish. if you're looking for coverage that is light and natural, this is for you. if you need something heavier, go with studio fix.
Pressed Powders -YBF Cosmetics - Neutralizing Pressed Powder

i really like this neutralizing powder a lot. if you have any red patches on your skin or uneven skin tone, this power covers it up. it really hides your flaws and doesn't look cakey at all. the only bad thing i have to say is if you're using bronzer/are darker skinned you want to go light on this, it makes you paler. if you already have light skin i can't see this being a problem.
at $16.99 for a small bottle it may be pricey, but it's totally worth it. all it takes is a couple of sprays to the mid section/ends of my wet hair, blowdry then voila! shiny, soft, silky hair. my hair is damaged from the straighter/bleaching and this helps soften it up. i really love this product. the hair mask is amazing as well for dry, damaged hair.
this is my go to lipliner. you will never see my makeup bag without this in it. it is the exact same shade as my lips so this looks very natural on me. it's a berry color, but not too dark. i wear it almost everyday and it makes my thin lips look bigger.
i tried to like this lipstick, i really did. after seeing it in many online reviews and youtube videos it looked gorgeous and i had to buy it. it looks horrible on me! i'm not quite sure why it looked bad, but i was disappointed. it really exaggerates the cracks in my lips and makes them dry and chapped looking. the color comes out too sheer and makes me look pale and washed out. really nice color, but not for me. :(
beautiful color. for me, this is definitely one of the "my lips, but better" shades. it's very close to the natural color of my lips and it feels moisturizing when i wear it. it's very sheer mauve, so it doesn't look too bold. i have to re apply every so often, but this doesn't bother me. perfect for everyday wear.
Shampoo -Got 2 Be - Fat-tastic Fresh & Full Dry Shampoo

this product is seriously amazing. i have fine, thin hair which gets greasy fast. i don't wash it everyday, so Got2Be dry shampoo is a life saver when i have to go out to work/school/in public. it makes my hair look completely clean and oil free! there is no residue either. even after 3 days of not washing my hair it still looks plumped up, fresh and full of volume. i recommend it to all my friends who don't want to wash their hair everyday! the ONLY complaint i have about this product is the packaging. i typically only get 4 uses out of each bottle. after each use, the bottle ends up hissing and leaking the shampoo out. i've tried running it under hot water and shaking it, but no luck. i've had to re-buy this constantly, which is annoying. i still love it though, despite the crappy bottle!
