Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Advantage Acne Cleanser
mascara_junkie 10/4/2012 3:19:00 PM
I generally use a gentle cleanser on my face, but when my face starts getting oily and I breakout (monthly, ughh), I use this. It pretty much cleans all the oil off my face, and clears my skin up quick.
I really like this product! It goes on smoothly, and lasts 10+ hours when set with powder (this is important to me since I'm in classes all day). Would recommend.
Powder -MAC - Mineralize Foundation / Loose - Light

I really do not like this powder at all. I normally use MAC's Studio Fix powder which is *awesome*. This powder, however, sucks - which is not what I'd expect from MAC. Barely any coverage, goes on blotchy - and then wears off quickly. So expensive, and the packaging is terrible too ~ I don't know who would try to put it on usiing that powder puff attached to the handle :S
Love this palette!! All the shadows give you multiple eyeshadow options, and it looks great on my NW20 skintone and my green-blue eyes :) I would definitely recommend watching some of the tutorials on youtube for this product as the eyeshadow cards that come with it are useless.
If I could have only one blush, it would be this one. Pros: Gorgeous blendable colour that looks really nice on my NW20 skintone, nicely packaged Cons: Doesn't last the whole day for me, and these compacts will ALWAYS eventually break. Overall, a product that is worthy of all the hype!
A nice foundation that I wouldn't buy again Pros: Lightweight, matches my skintone perfectly (NW20 at MAC and I use the alabaster shade for this), goes on smoothly Cons: Glass bottle with no pump??? Ridiculously hard to get product out, because tapping it against my hand hurts like a B. Plus, it's pricey.
Love it! Doesn't smudge, makes my lashes super thick and long. 28.00 bucks is pretty $$ though.
A pretty good eyeliner overall. I have this in black, and it goes on smoothly and is quite easy to apply (but not idiot proof - practice first!)...my only qualum with this product is the fact that it doesnt last long, so it smudges - I had a waterproof liquid eyeliner before this one and it (obviously) lasted longer, so that's what I'm going back to after I finish this.
Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Lipgloss in Strawberry Fizz

My favorite lipgloss. Goes on smoothly, and lasts for a long time. I don't find it sticky at all, and the scent (strawberry) is nice too. Really good lipgloss :)
Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Minty Lip Shine

This is one of the best lipglosses I've tried. It goes on nice and shiny, with a great minty scent to boot. It stays on longer than your average lipgloss, and it looks great too. I've also seen a lot of girls at my school with the same lipgloss which I don't usually, so it's quite popular. Pick it up the next time you're at VS or La Senza :)
I got this product as part of a 2 for 1 deal, so it only cost me 3.50 Canadian which was a bargain.
But I hate this mascara. It went on nicely, didn't clump - sure, but it did smudge onto my eyelides (which my CoverGirl lastblast NEVER did), and the damn application brush is almost impossible to get back into the tube - it wobbles around to the point where I fear I'll break it.
Definitely wont repurchase.

I love the packaging for this product. I only use it on my lips, but it makes them soo nice and soft. I got it for 9.00 CND at Urban Outfitters, but honestly - if you're trying to save money - this is just a glorified vaseline with colour and scent added. It's also possible that this is causing zits to appear near the corner of my lips - I'm not too sure though, so I'll update if it is/isn't.
I'd probably repurchase, but only at a cheaper price.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Strawberry Body Butter

A little bit of this product goes a long way. I'd only use a dab of this on my hands - it's very moisturising, and if I use too much the smell will be overpowering. My dad hates the smell if I use too much - he compares it to Strawberry Jam. A nice product but not worth repurchasing - I got the large tub and it has so far lasted me well over a year.
Styling Products -Dove - Frizz Control Therapy Taming Cream

The information for this product is misleading: it is nothing more than a leave in conditioner, which I use whenever I am too lazy to use conditioner in-shower. I have very thick hair, so quite bit of product is needed to work through my hair, but all it does is make my hair softer.
Pressed Powders -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Medium

I was recommened this product by a MA at MAC. I am a NW20, and although I was a bit surprised at being recommended a medium shade, I am overall impressed with this product. It goes on easily, and looks very natual. My only con is the large price tage (30.00 CND).
