Good stuff. Although my staple is MAC Blot Powder in Dark, this stuff in Translucent Honey does the trick for me. My face looks flawless.
This is the best, most simple and wonderful lip treatment I have ever used. I never ever touch chapstick or any of those types of lip balms because it just sits on your lips, it doesn't do what it is supposed to do, moisturize! I used to only wear MAC Lip Conditioner and based on reviews here, I went out and bought some. This is my HG lip conditioner! Love it - I have super soft lips all day, every day!
Powder -Cover Girl - Fresh complexion oil control makeup (powder foundation)

Well, I was finally over L'Oreal True Match powder foundation and my beloved MAC Blot Powder shattered into a million pieces (it was almost done anyways) so I decided to read through the reviews and try something new. I have normal skin and have been blessed with the fact I only get one or two pimples a year (if that), smooth skin and pretty small pores. SO I decided to try this. So far so good. The package is cute I guess, but I haven't used CG since the 7th grade or so, so I don't think I'll be busting the package out in public. J/K :) I used a large powder brush and dusted this on MAC Select Tint in NC20. (I bought this in Soft Honey.) It matched my skin perfectly. I then dusted CG Smoothers over and WOW! I ended up with a flawless finish. I'm pretty impressed. I'll have to update this review in the next week or so if anything changes! :)
Lip Gloss -Cover Girl - WetSlicks Lip Gloss - Patently Pink

I love this color. I was looking for something to tide me over until I hit the MAC store to replace my empty tube of Dreamy lipglass. This one did just the thing - it was pretty close. I'm pretty tan and frosty colors look good on me. It looks great alone or paired up with MAC lipliner Burgundy (my usual combo with Dreamy lipglass) or Quartz. I would buy it again - it had a nice, smooth texture, not sticky and the coverage was excellent.
I love this blush! It's as the other reviewers described before. I'm tan all year round and this looks perfect on me.
I just picked this up at Target in "Uh Huh" (pearlescent white w/ irridecsent glitter). I LOVE this... I've been looking for glitter eyeliner to highlight my eyes and this one does the trick w/ my warm eyeshadows. Goes on in a fine or thick line, stays put! And for the price (about $3 USD) it was well worth it!
Love this palette! (Love all MAC - what can I say!) It was sold out everywhere but lo-and-behold my boyfriend gave it to me for Xmas! :) I love all the colors - I use it as much as possible!
Eye Shadow -Revlon - Colorstay 12-Hour Eyeshadow Quad "Blushed Wines"

I'm a MAC girl but told myself I would try a d/s brand for fun, so, I picked this cute little quad up from CVS. I LOVE this little quad! Perfect for work - great coverage (I've used with and without MAC CCB and MAC Paint underneath it), beautiful colors... I would buy this one again!
I normally use Max Factor 2000 Calorie mascara - I have straight, not-thick-at-all lashes and I love how it makes my lashes so lush and full but it's TOO dramatic for daytime/office wear... I've been dying to try MF LP but just haven't gotten around to it because of the reviews saying the formula was too thin... so I could not contain my excitement when I saw the very cute Lash Exact tube at Rite Aid. How cute were the little purple bristles? Now, I'm usually very wary of CG products but I decided to give it a shot... $8 later (I knew I should have picked it up at Walmart!) I am thrilled! My lashes are thicker, fuller and seperated but not over the top for the daytime! I will definitely buy again! :)
After reading reviews on here I went to Sephora and purchased one for $18 USD. I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS CURLER! It caught ALL my lashes and curled them up in a very beautiful way. I only had to hold it down for a few seconds. I have been telling all my friends to get one!
Love love love this stuff! Purchased at Sephora for $20USD... I purchased shade #15. This stuff is a dream to put on! I love the consistency, the packaging... one sheer layer evened out my skin tone. My skin looked so fresh and dewy the whole day. I set the TM with my MAC Sheer Select Loose Powder in NC40 and used MAC Blot Powder in Dark for touch ups. :)
Love this stuff. I'm a loyal MAC user and I'm a NW35/NC40 and bought this in Dark. Great stuff. I have normal skin, I use it for touch ups and my makeup looks flawless even at the end of the day - like I just put it on!
I have been using this bar of soap for my face and body for the past 6+ years. I've never had problem skin but this continues to leave my face and body soft and moisturized. I have never used a bar of soap on my face but this came dermatologist recommended. Paired with my trusty St. Ives Collagen Elastin Moisturizer, my face has honestly only broken out a handful of times in the past few years. (When I mean broken out, I mean one pimple.) I will never use another combination - I always get compliments on my skin!

This lipglosses have a nice consistency, the color selection is nice and I love all the wonderful colors! I would definitely buy it again!
Lip Gloss -Maybelline - Shiny-Licious in Peachy Gleam

I love this gloss! It's a peachy-pinkish color (hence the name) and has just the right amount of color and shine for my lips (I'm an NW35/NC35 - see my pics). I am defintely going to buy more as it is a LE, as the girl below mentioned.
