I used this along with the active moist moisturizer and noticed the difference in my skin in a two-three day period.
A bit on the pricey side but worth the money.

This product will stay a beauty staple for me until they either discontinue it or something better comes along. It is great for getting every cent's worth of the price you pay for nail polish. It has most definitely helped stretch the use of both my inexpensive polishes and more expensive polishes. A bottle of this lasts me forever and is so handy because I paint my nails frequently and change the color often and find myself reaching for this when my nail polish begins to dry out and thicken. This stuff is great!
I use this brush every day. I've also given this brush out to friends and family who I felt would enjoy using it. Soft, super affordable, especially when the e.lf. Studio line is half off because the usually $3 brushes become $1.50 . Although it is inexpensive it doesn't look or feel cheap as the design is sleek and the bristles are super soft.
This is one of my favorite nude lip glosses. I've already owned a few of them and plan on repurchasing when I run out of the one I have.
This blush is nice for warming up the face and for contouring if you have light or light/medium skin.

I bought this because it was described as a frosted peach but it's not very peachie. It's still a very pretty color nonetheless and I've used it over pink and nude lipsticks. Too bad it's discontinued.
Eye Shadow -L'Oreal - Wear Infinite Eyeshadow Quad 806 Canyon Stone

I just picked this up over the weekend and I really do love this quad! I was visiting family out of state and wanted to give some relatives makeovers. I wanted to use browns and realized I didn't bring any of my brown eyeshadows with me which worked out since that's the only reason I bought this quad in the first place. All of the colors in the palette are matte. There is a nude highlight color, a light, medium, and dark brown. The four colors that come in this quad work so well together. I can already tell that I'll be reaching for this quad often whether it is to use it alone or along with other eyeshadows that I own. I know I'll be repurchasing this in the future.
Eye Shadow -Smashbox - Eye Shadow Trio - Smashing On Stage

This trio is perfect if you don't like wearing very much makeup or are more into creating a very natural and effortless look. The gold is very pretty, the lightest of the three colors is great for highlighting brows, and the darkest of the three is a nice light/medium brown. Don't bother purchasing if you're looking to create a very dramatic look using only the three colors it comes with.
This eyeshadow duo is so gorgeous. It does live up to its name and is perfect for a teal/blue dramatic look. I must admit I don't reach for it often but it's only because I tend to wear little if any makeup on the daily basis. I've only worn it for night time looks but I'm sure the duo can easily be used to create a beautiful day time look. If you'd like to see an example of how I used it I have a picture in my gallery. :)
This brush is a great tool for contouring. Its bristles are so soft and are so packed in there. I have a light hand when I apply makeup so this helps me deepen the color on areas of my face that need a heavier hand. The only problem I did find was that I ordered 1 for myself and experienced no shedding at all but when I ordered one for my sister it was a different story. Although, I only ordered hers a few days later the brushes were not the same in length and hers did shed. I didn't mind so much that the look of the brush was inconsistent but I was disturbed that her brush did shed. I was determined to find out if it was going to keep shedding but she was annoyed by it and decided to stop using it all together. I would purchase again based on my experience but I'd try to get as much of the loose hair out as possible right away if it did shed like it did with my sister's. I've had a couple of my MAC brushes shed in the beginning and it was not a big deal to me since it was only briefly. I hope that will be the case for this brush, too.
I really liked this scent when I bought it and received many complements on my perfume. It's great if you're into floral scents. I'm pretty open to different types of scents since I have very bad allergies, and in turn, a very sensitive nose. I ended up not being able to wear this after a while because I'd get headaches. It turned out it was too strong for me to handle. :/ I was disappointed because I started wearing it when the manfriend and I first started dating and he loved it so much. :(
Rimmel London doesn't get enough credit for their lipsticks. I love this color. It's super pigmented and the consistency is great. I have never needed to reapply while out on the town for a night of dancing and drinks. The color can easily be blended with other lipsticks or pencils to create other colors as well. I always make sure to pick up a new tube when I run out or when I somehow manage to lose it. It's my favorite shade of red. It's vibrant and a very true red that nail polishes can easily be found to match with if that happens to be your thing. =) If not, it's probably going to match the shade of red on that item of clothing or accessory you've been scouring the makeup aisles for.
I love this stuff. My sister and I are hooked and we always make sure we have spares. We've also got our significant others using the stuff and they're the manly man sort of men. lol With that being said, it seems it's also man friendly, which is great since it can be found in a pack of 2 for about $5 at our local Target. That's a deal since it usually runs for almost $3 or more everywhere else that I've seen. So when I pick up a 2 pack that usually means 1 for me and one for my honey. (^_^) It has a pleasant minty scent and it feels tingly when applied but the tingly sensation doesn't last too long at all if that bothers you. I'm most def a fan and will continue to purchase.
This product comes the closest to being a drugstore dupe to Bare Escentuals' warmth. I use this for contouring just the same as I do with warmth. I have never experienced any fallout. I still use warmth but go back and forth between the two. It just depends on what I feel like using at the time of application. I've already hit pan and bought a spare. It's also super wallet friendly so that's a nice plus. It's definitely one of my favorite items as far as makeup goes. I have photos in my gallery in which I am wearing Goddess as well as warmth.
