Gels/Soaps -Dr. Bronner's - Baby-Mild Unscented Liquid Soap

I bought this to replace my oil face cleanser. I wear long wearing foundation and like oil cleansers to remove my make up. I love my clinique balm but was looking for a cheaper alternative. This did an amazing job of removing my makeup. I had to add a bit of water because when put on a dry face it wouldn't spread. It also didnt leave an oily film. The only problem that i found was that it really stung my face and eyes like crazy. I dont have overly sensitive skin either. I think im just going to stick with my Clinique balm and use this as a body wash.
I received a sample size of this product and have been using it for about 2 weeks during the day. It's amazing. Its feels thick but blendable, does not feel greasy and keeps my eye area hydrated and bright. I also like that it doesn't irritate my sensitive eye area like some eye creams do. Will be getting the full size as soon as finish sample.
Lip Treatments -Fresh - Sugar Rose Lip Treatment SPF 15

I received a free mini size sample for my birthday from Sephora. I really like the hint of color and the texture of this product. It made my lips feel moisturized without it feeling thick on my lips. I also liked the packaging and the twist cap. My only concern was that it contains oxybenzone. I have been trying to stay away from oxybenzone because I hear its not good for you. Just my personal choice.
I remember using this moisturizer years ago but started using higher end product because I thought that they might be better. I was wrong. Many of them had a strong fragrance and broke me out or if I liked one it wouldn't contain SPF so I would have to add SPF. I don't like so many steps in the mornings before work. Olay Complete for sensitive skin is perfect. It moisturizes my skin perfectly, my skin absorbs it well and no breakout, plus SPF. I also like the fact that it has a physical sun screen. On days that I know I am going to be exposed to the sun more (non-work days) I use a higher SPF over this product. All in all the price is right, feels great on skin, doesn't burn my face (even when using Retin A) and no breakouts.

I was starting to get really dry skin and decided to try this cream because I had a sample of it. It felt smooth on my skin and absorbed well but nothing amazing and the smell was just to strong. Not a bad smell but before bed it was just to much. It didn't give me any breakouts which is a plus but for the price that I realized it would be not worth it.
I really wanted to like this product but unfortunately it didn't do anything for my skin. I actually think it broke me out a little bit. I ended up finishing the bottle hoping that with constant use I would notice some improvement in my skin tone or pigmentation but sadly nothing. I did like the pump bottle instead of a dropper for serum but thats about it. Texture was slightly sticky and it never felt like my skin absorbed the product.
I love this lip liner. It goes on very smoothly and the staying power is amazing without drying my lips out. Also no feathering!!! The color can be used for many colors because its almost like my natural lip color but better. I use to love Rimmel lip liners but I find that they are a little drying. Im going to try to get more colors in this lipliner because I love the texture so much.

I love these lip glosses. They are not sticky like Lancome, don't bleed like NYX and I find myself reaching for these more than my MAC ones. They have a mild cooling effect and they give the perfect amount of color. HG!!!
I LOVE this mascara. It lengthens, thickens and seperates all in the same time. Doesn't irritate my eyes and I can get close to my lashline without poking my eye out. What more can you ask for in a mascara? This is my HG.
Lipstick -Clinique - Different Lipstick - Raspberry Glace

I really like this color. Its my everyday office lipstick. Its long lasting but not drying. I use a lip bursh to apply so it does not go on to dark.
Makeup Brushes -Sephora - Professional Mineral Powder Brush #45

This brush is amazing for applying all different textures of liquid foundations. It does not soak up the product and application is effortless, quick and even. I love it so much will be getting another one!!!
This product does a decent job of taking off my makeup but it leaves an oily film. It also doesn't completely remove my eyemakeup. When I added a little bit of water to make it a milky cleanser after putting it on dry it never really came off. I don't have that problem with my Clinique Take the day off Cleansing Balm. I also don't have to worry about it runny between my fingers with it with clinique because its a balm not a liquid oil. All in all not a bad product but will not repurchase.

I love this product. It moisturizes my lips without making my lips feel grease. Great for pre-lipstick treatment. I love the mint smell and cooling sensation. Will buy again.
Blush -E.L.F. - Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder

For the price this product is good. The color payoff is moderate (Im about an NC 25 to 35 skin tone) which I don't mind for my everyday blush/bronzer. My only real complaint is that the blush has glitter chunks in it and even when applied only to apples of cheek the glitter moves all over my face. For that reason I will not be repurchasing.
Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation

The color match was great (Im NC 25 and got #120) but it never really "stuck" to my skin. BTW I have fairly clear normal skin. I feel that this foundation staying power is horrible. Within 2 hours it looked patchy (even when setting with powder) and by the end of the day it was completely off. Thank goodness I didn't give up on Make up forever foundations. I ended up trying the Face and Body one and I loved it.
