Toners -Neutrogena - Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent

Okay, HG. I cant really say it's helping my acne yet (I'm still breaking out due to stress) but holy crap, my nose is clear! I would never have break outs on my nose, but I had a forest of black heads and little tiny white heads (clogged pores.) Not even pore strips could do the trick. But now thanks to this, no more black heads or clogged pores! And also on my cheeks (were I get black heads too) I don't have anymore blackheads! Love this stuff.

Literally, I will buy this forever. You don't know how many times I'm complimented DAILY on how good I smell, I swear, at school, people sometimes stop me and ask what I'm wearing. It smells amazingly vanillaly, I just can't get over it. It's cheap and lasts FOREVER. I wear this 5 days a week and I've had it for at least a year and have a little less than half left.

Ugh, I really wish I could like this. This would probably be a great summer foundation - but in winter, no way. It was super hard to blend, and stuck to all my dry spots. It looked so cakey. Returned it; but perhaps will come back to in the summer. It did match my skin perfectly, though.
Did nothing for my skin. I have combo skin, large pores, clogged pores, etc, and I used all these products up, and my skin didn't break out or clear up.

Got this in a sample, and I love it! Makes me look GLOWY, not OILY! Which is really important, as I have a really oily nose (not so much forehead.) And it's winter, so my skin is a bit dull and dry, and this fixes it! If I can't find a cheaper version of this, I will spend the money to repurchase it.
Primer/ Corrector -Too Faced - Primed & Poreless Skin Smoothing Face Primer

Got this on black Friday with a bronzer and lip gloss, all for $18. I LOVE THIS! I have tried a lot of primers (Benefit, Rimmel, Revlon, etc) and this is the only one I have LOVED. I love that it's tinted, gives me that extra coverage under my foundation that I need! And this seriously gets rid of my huge pores! Not even Porefessional did that. To me, it feels kinda.. greasy? But once it's on my face I can't feel it, so no lippie deduction. And it doesn't make me break out! I will try to find another tinted primer that's cheaper, but if I can't, I will come back to this!

HG eyeshadows. I just use this palette for my daily eyeshadow, and I am an eyeshadow junkie! But this stopped me from purging as this is my go-to everyday eye look. The brown comes out soooo beautiful as a crease color. It BARELY creases with my e.l.f. primer by the end of the 9 hour day, so I won't take off lipies. No fallout, gorgeous colors, get compliments on it all the time.
Primer/ Corrector -BeneFit Cosmetics - The Porefessional

Okay - it made a somewhat difference in my HUGE pores, but honestly, I can get the same thing from the drugstore. Also, this is soooo greasy feeling. Returned.
Okay, I have medium/longish, frizzy, curly hair that has been damaged from straightening it every day (it was a phase, okay! Over that now) and dying it (which I still do, but I don't use permanent dyes.) My hair was suffering, and this, along with my Garnier Oil, brought my hair back to life! I actually use this as my conditioner (note I take a shower every other day) and it's amazing. Put it in my hair while I shave, wash out, and bam, frizz free soft hair. Plus, this smells AMAZING. If you don't have it, I say run, don't walk, to your nearest store. It's only $4!

Packed up the straightener and stopped buying hairdyes as I decided it was time to take care of my dead, extremely curly hair. This, along with Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle, has made my hair soooo soft. After the shower, I brush my hair out and apply a generous amount to my ends, and then what is ever left over to my bangs. I try to stay away from my roots to prevent oiliness, but I have to get my bangs as I've bleached them before. LOVE THIS!
Misc Beauty Tools -E.L.F. - Studio Makeup Mist & Set Spray

I don't know if this helps with controlling oil as I use a powder for that, but boy, on those days when I go overboard on foundation, this is a life saver! 3 squirts cover my face (left,center,right) and my makeup looks much naturally. I wouldn't buy this again though as the fragrance REALLY bothers me (I sneeze almost every time) and it's just not something I need.
My mom swears by this, and trust me - she's mascara OBSESSED. Me on the other hand, I hated it. Clumped liked crazy and gave me spider lashes on first coat. Also, it smudged a lot. But I guess everyone has different experiences with it. But Maybelline never fails to have cute packaging, so props to that. (:
Ugh, okay, at first, I really liked this. It covered well... at first. Throughout the day, it wears away and my acne (I have quite a bit) is soooo noticeable. It feels like a mask! I'll probably use up the bottle though, just because I'm half way through it and won't be buying a new foundation til a while. I do like how the pump locks though - easy to travel with.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express Colossal Cat Eyes

It seems I always LOVE the mascara others hate, hahaha. But anyways, I've been looking for the cat eyes effect forever now and this is it! My only complaint is that I wish my lashes looked thicker, but I can overlook that! This makes your lashes so separated and long and I love them! Plus the packaging is ADORABLE. I have this in washable, as waterproof always bothers my contacts for some reason.
Life saver! I use the one by Nature Made, I think I got it for like $8 for the small bottle (forget how much is in it) and it has lasted FOREVER. Almost 2 months, which is pretty good for such a small bottle. I purchased this after a very bad hair cut and my hair has grown so fast. I haven't noticed any difference in my hair or skin but that's okay. I take two a day.
