this foundation leaves my skin looking like skin, flawless skin..and I'm extremely surprised I got a dead on match, considering the rage of colors..easy to dispense, goes on smooth, blends evenly, medium coverage, can't ask for more at dirt cheap drugstore price!
Blush -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Glo Illuminating Powder - Catwalk Pink #345
margirl23 5/11/2013 7:35:00 AM
I purchased this along with the other shades in this line...while it is not my favorite of the bunch as a blusher, it is amazing at highlighting..but a light hand is warranted, otherwise it shows up ok my skin extremely shimmery - I do what others do and use the middle colors as a blush..and it is very blendable and buildable, gives a nice natural glow to the skin - the outer two colors I will use to highlight very lightly the tops of my cheekbones - pigmentation, as with all WnW products, is outstanding..and I can see this particular little gem working with all skintones..highly recommend
Cleansers -Aveeno - Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub

This is a very gentle exfoliating scrub..smells nice, and gets the job done...i've been using this a few times a week for several months, and notice a difference..it moisturizes, doesn't leave a film, rinses clean..and the best part, it makes my skin glow..as the previous reviewer mentioned, it really does brighten up the complexion - i'm on my third tube, good stuff here!
Lip Treatments -Jack Black - Intense Therapy Lip Balm spf 25
margirl23 3/9/2013 1:52:00 PM
This is a great, moisturizing balm...I feel like I finally foun something for my lips that actually heals them instead of drying them out - I use it every day and it never dries out my lips..excellent for use after exfoliation..I plan to purchase several more
My skin has this beautiful, gorgeous muted peachy glow when I wear this blush...I was afraid it would be a bit too shimmery, but the shimmer is so subtle, blends into the skin flawlessly, super pigmented...a little tap on the brush, apply and blend out - this is my new favorite blush for the warmer months, I adore this. Really brightens up the face and makes me look alive and refreshed, highly recommend for summer and will buy it again
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - EyeStudio Duo in Khaki Craze

Gorgeous texture to this little gem, highly pigmented and satiny smooth...there are two colors here, a really pretty gold with brown, green and white veining and a forest green shade...swatched separately, each color is beautiful on its own - mixed together gives it a beautiful dimension similar to MAC's sumptuous olive, in color and velvety texture...so impressed with maybelline on this on and I plan on purchasing more duos..highly recommend!
Hair -Sacha Cosmetics - Sally - Hair One Hair Cleanser and Conditioner

I'm on my third bottle of hair one, and I think I've hit the jackpot with hair one's olive oil formula...I use this on days that I don't shampoo, it always leaves my hair silky and manageable, the scent is very pleasant...I have tried the jojoba oil version and it was tingly, a bit minty, cleansed the hair very well but I needed a bit more moisture, and the olive oil formula really did the trick...doesn't leave my hair greasy - and for reference, I have very thin hair that has become course and dry due to chemical processing...I do use a conditioner afterwards and just a bit of leave in and my hair is finally feeling better..I wanted to go the co-washing route but I found that I wasn't getting the moisture I needed withregular conditioners, I tried Vo5 and suave..or left my roots greasy and ends still dry..I'm very pleased with this product and will continue to use it when I don't want to overstrip my hair with shampoo..would recommend...and I've also never tried wen as the pricetag has scared me so this for me is a nice alternative
Gorgeous color...my all-time favorite "safe" shade, just perfect for the office...a definite rose with a touch of brown, not too dark, not too red, not too pink, a lovely mixture of all three...it's perfect
This is such a beautiful, muten, toned-down, smoky pink will delicate gold shimmer...love this color and how it looks against my neutral skintone...looks great in any occasion, day or night, very feminine, wearable color...love the formula too, its just right
I've been a devoted Queen Helene Mint Julep mask user for years and years...this stuff is incredible...it really does a great job of soaking up excess oil, cleaning out the pores and, the best part, making my red acne bumps disappear. I love the minty smell and I love how it makes my face feel firm, fresh and rejuvinated, soft and no irritation whatsoever...hg product
This is a beautiful color...this was one of my first MAC purchases. this shadow is not a typical "green". It has a slight sheen that gives it dimension..has an antique-bronzy green feel to it...it's stunning, pure and simple...applies wonderfully
Lipstick -L'Oreal - Project Runway - 785 Sultry Raven's Pout
margirl23 10/12/2011 8:55:00 AM
This is another great nude from L'oreal...it is very similar, yes, to fairest nude..but I think its moe cool toned and "pink" I would say this is a cross between fairest nude and taffeta. I ran out of both these lipsticks and have been searching for a good nude to replace my taffeta (since its discontinued) and fairest nude tended to wash out my complexion a bit. Imo, this is the perfect union of the two..very pleased I bought this one, would recommend if you are looking for a cool, slightly pink nude
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational Lipstick - Warm Me Up
margirl23 10/10/2011 10:54:00 AM
This is currently my hg everyday lipcolor, goes with anything...a beautiful not-too-warm neutral, soft pink with a touch of brown. The formula is creamy, long lasting, would repurchase
I absolutely adore the scent of this lotion, cherry almond...makes my skin so soft and smooth..i've gotten so many compliments about how soft my skin is thanks to this. I also use it on my little one after his bath. Highly recommend.
soothing, tingly lip balm...makes my lips nice and moisturized, super soft...definitely a must have. Only gripe is the medicated smell, but i will forego it for the way it heals and soothes my lips, feels wonderful on
