Loves itttt! Duh
I love cream foundations, and the fact that this is in a stick makes it last sooooo much longer. I use it with a skunk brush from MAC and i get super-smooth, even coverage. It covers really well without feeling very heavy. Definitely gives a made up look, but very polished, not fake. I have so many problems finding foundation that works because of my oily skin, and as long as I put powder on top I can prevent oilies for quite a while
The best blush I have found. The color is perfect for my skintone, whether I am tan or not, with bronzer or not. I love the fact that there is shimmer in it because... whether it looks better or not (and I don't know) I am a shimmer junkie. This is difficult to do well as I have oily skin, but this blush's shimmer is very fine and one of the stripes is a darker matte color which you can use more of depending on what you want the color to look like. Stays all day, goes on evenly, does not break me out. LOVE this :)
I bought this perfume years and years ago, when it first came out and was very popular. I was younger and just starting to wear perfume, so this scent invokes a lot of youthful memories. Now I don't wear it very much, just every once in a while, but it has a very lasting, poignant, noticeable scent. I have gotten many comments from men especially on this perfume and they seem to love it! which is always a plus. So this has become my "going-out and looking for some fun" perfume! haha
This is a lovely scent, really the perfect fall perfume. I feel sexy every time I put it on and whenever I catch the scent on myself everyday. I have found also that it is never overpowering, as sometimes before a long day I will use 3 sprays (one for my wrist, chest, and behind the knees) and its not aggravating in any way. Whereas with some fragrances you can smell them constantly on yourself (which is how I tend to tire of them quickly) this is definitely a more understated scent. The bottle is very tasteful and this really is a reasonable price for an EDP!
This product's packaging is one of the worst i've found. Its so hard to get enough powder out of the jar to use it with another brush, because obviously the one it comes with is sub-par. The foundation itself doesn't blend well, and hardly covers anything. Not worth even the small amount of money paid for it.

This is a great foundation ESPECIALLY for its price, considering my other favorites are EL doublewear, or chanel double perfection. While other MUAers have complained about its putty-like consistency, i rather like it because it gives you more time to blend before drying, and blend blend blend you must. I only use a tiny amount on a skunk brush for each part of my face. So far this has done pretty well on holding up with my oily, uneven skin, but ive only been using it a few days so I will update! Update- I find it a bit heavy to use everyday, but I would consider using this for a special occasion or on a day when i need more coverage. Right now I've found the best thing for me is to mix revlon colorstay with a moisturizer to make my own tinted moisturizer! Perfect, light coverage!
This a a light, sophisticated fragrance that is perfect for spring, or any bright and casual day. I wouldn't stay I love it, but on certain days I feel like this is a great fragrance for a certain mood. Flowery, yet oriental at the same time. Not as strikingly strong as Chance.

This shampoo/ conditioner combo really works well on my hair, which is wavy/ frizzy. I blow dry it straight everyday, and while it has a lot of volume in the morning usually, it almost always falls as the day progresses. This somewhat helps with that, but mostly i like the fresh scent and how soft my hair feels after using it for a few days in a row!

I really like this shampoo! I'm a product junkie, so i buy lots of different things and its rare for me to repeat buy something, especially if it's shampoo and conditioner because their are so many choices! But I love the fresh scent of this product! My hair is naturally wavy/ frizzy and i blowdry it everyday to be somewhat straight, and so while in the morning it has a lot of body, it usually is all limp by the end of the day. This shampoo and conditioner combination works really well w/ my hair type, leaving it really soft and shiny!
I know that liquid liner can seem a little scary for those who don't use it all the time, but once you've practiced enough to get it down there is NO going back. I love this stuff! Pencil and gel eyeliners, even if they're "waterproof" end up smudging all over my oily eyelids. But this eyeliner lasts all day yet is still easy to take off w/ eye makeup remover. Also, the felt tip version is sooo much easier to use than the softer thin brush kind. The only liner i go back to buy again and again!
This is my HG mascara, and i continue to buy it over and over and over again. Although sometimes i may try the newest product on the market, I always come back to this. I love REALLY big thick lashes... and i've found that this is only thing that can give you that without making them spiky. You really have to work on it (i dont lie when i say i probably put on 20 coats) but the end result is beatiful lashes, and you can't beat the price. Diorshow mascara gives a similar result, but is $20 more expensive! Needless to say, if you haven't tried this, get to it!
Ok for any of you guys who like the escada scents, you have to go and buy the lotion version instead. Its such a great way to wear the fragrance, and i feel like it lasts longer. For going out its great to rub all over your arms chest and neck for a subtle but amazing scent! i'm a big fan of the LE escada scents so i always go out and buy the new lotion once i've finished my old bottle. Definitely consider it... drives all the guys crazy! they love it!
I use this everyday without fail. I have very oily skin, and while this doesn't control everything it certainly helps and helps to keep my makeup in place for the most part! Definitely worth a try if you struggle with oily skin!
I have been using chance on and off for years... ever since it came out. It remains one of my favorites, and can be used for any season if you are in the right mood. Definitely a youthful, sweet scent but very appealing. I have gotten many compliments from guys and girls alike ;) my only problem is that the bottle seems to leak very easily... which has wasted some of my precious chance
