While I'm not a super fan of this as a balm, I'm loving this color. It's a great natural lip color for me. perfect for low no makeup days I like it so much I have picked up a few backup as this is a limited edition color.
Foundations -Cover Girl - Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation
melindamac 1/7/2013 6:49:00 PM
So far this is the best new product I have tried in a long time! This foundation is giving the High End brands a run for their money. It is very comparable MUFA matte velvet and Nars Sheer glow. I wore it this Sat and Sunday and was blown away by how flawless I looked and how long it lasted. Not ashy at all. I also discovered there is a CG Queen version as well. So I picked it up and it was just as great as the regular version. I'm a MAC NC50 and I bought the Tawny from the regular line and Almond Glow from the Queen Collection line. PSA Target sells it for $4.99 everywhere else they are $11.99
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorstay Soft and Smooth Lipcolor in Mocha Silk

I found this for $2.00 at Big Lots . I can't believe I never tried it before it was discontinued! This is my new favorite Brown Girl nude. It looks perfect with NYX Nude Truffle lipliner and a little clear gloss. It's a must have, if you can find it. I already went back and bought all I could find! :)
Treatments -Sally Hansen - Complete Care 4-in-1 Treatment

Wow I just got this at the CVS 75% off sale. I did not check the reviews until I got home. But I'm glad I didn't! This is great,my nails look super smooth and I have not had any peeling. I would never have bought this for $14 but for $3 it's great. I stopped by CVS today and grabbed 2 more backs ups!
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner
melindamac 9/27/2011 9:23:00 AM
In response to the reviewer below. I would like to state for the record that I A) Have owned MAC, BB, Stila and countless other gel liners and B) I have worked in makeup for the past 15yrs. I think this is a great gel liner. I have it in Blackest Black and I love it. In fact, I like it better than Blacktrack. It's thicker and therefore with a proper brush it's easier to get a perfect line in onee swoop. Plus, on me, it's much darker than Blacktrack. Add to the fact that is always on sale somewhere and this makes this a winner in my book.
Ok! I admit it. I love Maybelline Mascara's I have tried all the expensive brands ( Hell I even worked for some) But no matter what I always come back. Great Lash has always had a special place in my heart, I have always found it to work best when it get a little old. HOWEVER this little baby has changed all of that. I have been stalking walgreens for a month looking for this and just when I gave up,.There it was at Target. This is all I hoped for! Super Black and the little brush lets you get each and every lash with no clumps. I did four coats and my lashes look AMAZING! Long, full and dark just like MAC #36 lashes! I went back today and got a backup! I don't think this is limited because it was it was on the regular display, but it never hurts to have one stashed away just in case.
I love this top coat!!!!! Between this product and Kleancolor nail polish colors, I'm actually excited to polish my nails! I can change my polish many times in one week due to the the fact that it dries my polish super fast!!! I bought it at CVS full price but I have picked up three more bottle on ebay! Tip order this off ebay you can get 3 bottles for the price of 1!!!
When I first started wearing MAC in the late 80's this was my perfect Black shadow. I don't know what happened but now it's a dark grey color that with alot of patting or a good base you can get to show up black, Why bother to spend $15 when you can buy an NYX Black eyeshadow single for less than $3 and its Super Black with the first touch, In fact, if you live in or near an urban beauty supply store, stop in and pick up a NICKA K eyeshadow single in Black. It too is also a true Blackest Black for $.99!
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum Express The Falsies Flared
melindamac 6/17/2011 6:36:00 PM
I must say that I truly love Maybelline Mascaras,so I was excited to try this. I love it better than the original Falsies. It really does flare out my lashes! So far it's another winner!
I just picked this up a few days ago. I am very impressed! It glides on Super Black and Super Easy. I was able to line my upper waterline in two seconds with one hand! the best part is it lasted all day. It's not for sure yet but this could be a HG. I do think it's pricey for a DS. But I'm sure you will be able to pick it up on sale.
Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand - Salux Nylon Japanese Bath Towel

OMG! Thank you guys. I came upon this by chance on the boards one day, Which made me check out the reviews. Of course I ordered a few right away. This is so wonderful. I used pure coconut oil after I showered with the cloth and my skin feels so silky smooth. Amazing! I'm never going to be without this baby in my shower! :)
It's funny how everything old is new again! I bought my first La Femme blush in 1988! The entire line was sold at a small beauty supply store near my High School, The products were great and super cheap. After I moved to the East Coast, I would have my mom send them to my friends and I. They are still super pigmented and last forever. In fact, I still have a Sienna Blush left over from college! If you are on the fence, Go for it! You can't go wrong for the price! :) Plus you have to love the fact that they are only a $1.00 or so more than I paid for them over 20 yrs ago!
Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - Beauty rush- Candy baby
melindamac 5/31/2011 8:59:00 PM
I saw this on a youtube video and picked it up with a coupon. I love this. It's a milky pink that smells and tastes wonderful. It's an instant pick me up. Great by itself or on top of my nude pink MAC lippies. I've already bought back ups!
Very nice lipstick. super creamy and blendable. I can see it working on just about anyone if you area fan of nude lipsticks. I wear it with a cool pinky brown lipliner and get a perfect nude lip that is comfortable with no need for gloss! I must also say that on me this is much pinker than MAC's Gaga 2. MAC nc50/nw44. Revlon Caramel. If I did not already have hundreds of lipsticks I would def get more backups of this.
Blush -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Blush 831E Pearlescent Pink
melindamac 3/30/2011 11:09:00 AM
LOVE THIS. It is a pinky gold. That's true. But have to say I like it much better than NARS Orgasm and MAC's Peachykeen. I have all three and this one shows up the best on me( NC50) The other two I have to actually build in layers to see color and not sheen, This one works in one swipe! I'm not a make up snob. BUT I would never have expected the blushes from Wet n Wild to be this wonderful!
