Moisturizers -Philosophy - Hope in a Jar - for all skin types

I really thought I had a bad jar of this. I put this on my face after getting it in the mail yesterday and YUCK it smells like a wet dog!!!! I found that others were noticing this too after reading about it here on mu. It did leave a really nice feeling on my skin though. So if I can stand the stink I will continue to use it but won't be repurchasing.
I absolutely LOVE this mascara!! It not only curls my lashes, but they stay curled and no clumps! This mascara works fabulously for me and no flaking either. I use this and my Loreal Lash boosting serum and have great results. I like this better than my Yves Saint Laurent mascara too. I will be re-purchasing for sure
This is a wonderful product!! My biggest problem is that I have color treated hair that is red and the red washes out quickly if I shampoo too much. My hair is oily and straight though, and looks a mess if I don't wash every day. This product has solved my problem! I just spray some on and my hair looks clean, shiny, and wonderful! The scent is refreshing although I couldn't really explain it. I got this for around 3 bucks at Walgreens and I will be purchasing this again for sure! Another plus of this product is that it really gives my hair volume which is always good when you have straight hair. Warning though: go easy with this product you can always add more. The first time I used it I sprayed a ton of it on and my hair was white! With lots of brushing though, it came out ok. I hightly recomment this product.
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Eyes Trio - Egyptian Sands [DISCONTINUED]

WOW! This is a fantastic eye shadow trio for the money! For around 3-4 dollars you get 3 great colors that work together very well. I purchased this after reading the reviews here on MUA and I was absolutely delighted with my purchase. The shadows are soft and satiny, blend well, and can be used for a nice daytime/office look. I used a base underneath, and did not have any creasing! I am going to check out some of the other trios and see if they perform as well as this one. For the price, you can't go wrong, especially if you get it on a BOGO!
Shampoo -Cibu - LO MEINTAIN Everyday Gentle Shampoo

I absolutely LOVE this shampoo! I gave CIBU a try, after seeing quite a few of the makeup gurus on YouTube giving reviews on it. CIBU actually has a channel also that gives you tips on how to use the products. I am addicted to the scent of the shampoo, and I absolutely love the way my color treated hair comes out so shiny. (note: I have hard water too!) I will repurchase for sure!
Eyeliner -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Eyes Creme Eyeliner - Black

OK, so I have never tried MAC's fluidline. But now I don't have to!! This eyeliner is amazing!! After it dries, it does not budge on me!! It is a bit hard to get off with regular makeup wipes, but baby oil takes it off just fine. The brush that comes with it is not that great, but I use it for my brows! For the price, you can't go wrong with this product. It makes a smooth line, especially if you use Sonia Kashuk's angled eyeliner brush.
Powder -Unlisted Brand - Spell Cosmetics Harmony Mineral Foundation

This is such an amazing mineral foundation! I am over 40 and this product does not settle into my fine lines of wrinkles. I have had compliments on my skin when I wear this! This is all the foundation I need and it can also be worn over liquid foundation if you like. I don't feel the need to since I get complete coverage with just the powder. I have tried bare essentuals and the Spell foundation is much better in my opinion and cheaper! Get a VIP membership (free by emailing customer service right now). Spell is a great company always having contests and free giveaways. OUTSTANDING customer service too!
I love this stuff! My face was reddened and dry before I started using this cream. A little goes a long way!! I also sometimes mix this with my mineral makeup and make a tinted moisturizer, works great. I hope Aldi does not stop carrying the LaCura line, it has worked wonders for me!
I love this lipstick! A nice neutral color and the product is very moisurizing on your lips. I bought 2! I love the packaging and for the price you can't go wrong. It smells just like some Lancome lipsticks that I have, sort of a "rosey" smell it is hard to describe but it is pleasant. This product is made in Germany so I wondered if it is made at the same place Lancome products are made. A great buy for a wonderful product.
This is an amazing lip gloss for the price! The packaging is so upscale and the color is very pigmented on your lips. I got "Glow Girl" and "First Class". I love both colors and I think they are far better than MAC lip glasses at almost 1/3 the cost! I bought mine at CVS and they had a deal if you buy 2 you get 3$ extra bucks too! I highly recommend this lip gloss. I want to go get more!
