Lipstick -Cover Girl - continuous color in vintage wine

kind of a shimmery cranberry on. goes well with my light/medium toned skin with dark brown eyes. lasts for a while and gives a pretty pop of color. not really fond of the taste though. feels smooth and moisturizing
Lips -Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain- Romantic

I love these balms. This is a neutralish red that gives you that reddish hint without being overpowering. They feel so good on my lips. I love the tingle and they leave my lips that are always dry feeling soft. They don't really last long but they feel so good i just want to keep putting it on.
I love this gloss in bubble gum. It looks so pretty on, tastes yummy, and is dirt cheap!
I have this in rose which is a nice neutral mauvish pink. It goes on creamy and easily but stays for hours. Highly recommended
color is good and it doesn't settle in lines too bad but it also doesn't provide much coverage
I bought this in espresso. It goes on nicely as a liner and stays. It is a little dry when trying to use it as a shadow and drags on my lid but If I can get it on, it is really pretty and stays all day.
I bought this in dark brown and it's really not very dark. More of a chocolate brown. I found it dry and dragging and difficult to apply. Does work to fill in my brows though. I much prefer the impact and easier application of liquid and gel liners.
nice dark black. stays on all day. my only gripe is that it really takes a learning curve to work with this stiff applicator and i have to use qtips a lot to clean up my mess
Mascara -L'Oreal - Power Volume Collagen (Waterproof)

This mascara gives me lift volume separation and staying power. It never has clumped on me. It is difficult to remove but it certainly withstands my watery allergy eyes.
Hair -Sacha Cosmetics - Sally - Hair One Hair Cleanser and Conditioner

I had been using wen cucumber and aloe cleansing conditioner when I ran across this on sale at Sally. I bought the one for color treated hair. I use a lot of products to style my stick straight short hair and the wen instantly dissolves the products. This takes a little more work but still does a really great job. I don't use 1/2 the amount they tell you to and I still get nice results. It really does help preserve my hair that is naturally dirty dishwater blonde and colored dark red. I was coloring every couple of weeks because red fades so fast. Now I can go at least a month. It leaves my hair clean and conditioned and never greasy. I wash my hair daily because I just feel gross if I don't so I can't comment on how many days one can go before the need to wash again.
This is awesome for my stick straight fine hair to give it lift on top and to give it that messy flipped out look in the back!!! It gives it shine without that greasy look and feel and I find it still holding my style the next day after I have slept.
I tried this mascara at Ulta with their little tester wands and it worked great so I purchased it. Then I get home and try to use it with the wand that comes with it and it clumped like crazy. It also takes forever to dry. It is a nice dark shiny black and stays all day like promised if I could just figure out how to prevent the awful clumps.
Mascara -L'Oreal - Waterproof Voluminous Carbon Black

I like this mascara although I find that the non-waterproof of the voluminous carbon black stays on me all day as well even with my allergy watery eyes. This stuff is really hard to get off even with great waterproof eye makeup remover. It does give me both volume and length and hold my curl well and it's a really dark black which I love.
Powder -Merle Norman - Luxiva Purely Mineral Makeup

This foundation provides pretty good coverage and doesn't tend to settle into lines. it also withstands a lot of humidity. What I don't like is that it is so shimmery. I prefer a little bit more of a matte finish. And I hate that when I try using this powder, it just goes everywhere and makes the biggest mess. This container has a lot of product and will last a long time. I only use this occasionally over my liquid foundation for nights out when i want a little bit of shimmer.

This product covers well, looks natural, doesn't feel heavy, matches my skin tone well, and lasts for hours. I love the pump bottle that it comes in. I just wish it wasn't so darn expensive!!
