Moisturizers -Kate Somerville - Oil Free Moisturizer

This is definitely a HG product for me. I use this moisturizer immediately after getting out of the shower and under my foundation. It makes my foundation go on smoother than any moisturizer I ever tried. For a moisturizer it really does act like primer so you can skip a step by using this. I also use this at night as a nightly moisturizer. It keeps my face hydrated and oh so soft when I wake up in the morning. I think this a perfect moisturizer you can use all year long. Its hydrating for winter and light for during the hot summer. As for the packaging I think its really hygienic due to the unique pump. Just one pump and its enough for your entire face. The price is little steep, but this is definitely worth it for all the benefit you get when you use this moisturizer.
I bought this when I ran out of my Clinique cleanser. This is great for removing my face makeup, but horrible for eye makeup removal. I had to go over several time for it to remove my eye makeup, which cause the skin around my eyes to be dry and sensitive to the touch. After a week of use this cleanser I had to return it because it my face really dry, bumpy, red and cause a lot of break outs. When I stopped using this cleanser and the Caudalie moisturizing cream, I noticed that in the 24 hours my skin was gradually returning to its normal state. If you have dry combination plus sensitive skin stay away from this unless you want to look like your sunburned.

I bought this moisturizer when I ran out of my HG Kate Somerville OIl Free moisturizer thinking it would practically do this same thing plus save me some money. I used this moisturizer before applying my foundation and at the end of the day it made it oiler than I was. Usually with my Kate Somerville I only have to blot once a day, but with this moisturizer I have to blot constantly and repowder my face. I also use this moisturizer at night to hydrate my face, but after a week of use it made my face really red and bumpy. It came to a point where it burned every time I put it on. I finally returned and I am never buying this again. If you are looking for a great moisturizer and you have sensitive/dry combination skin then try Kate Somerville moisturizer. It does cost a lot more, but its worth it.
I bought this cleanser thinking it would be great for my sensitive but dry combination skin. Boy was I wrong. It didn't remove my any of makeup at all and left with this oilly feeling on my face. After a week of use I was left with tons of blackheads on my nose from all the makeup residue and oil from this cleanser. Do yourself a favor and stay clear of this cleanser.
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Define-A-Line Eyeliner in Ebony Black

This would have to be the worst eyeliner I ever owned. I mean the color is nice and its a retractable but other than that its sucks. It smudges like crazy especially if you line your upper lid it would crease and it stays better on cheeks rather than your waterline. I tried applying this with a thin line and light hand and yet it still smudges. If you're trying to go for the raccoon kind of look this would be for you other than that avoid this eye liner.
The name of this mascara basically explains it all. It does make you lashes look long and definitely not clumpy but if you want volume or dramatic lashes this is not for you. I would recommend this if you want an everyday natural look.

This is my very first gel liner and I love it. Its easy to apply and the brush that actually comes with it work well this product. It stays on until you take it off. I like that it is really black unlike some other eye liners I have.
I absolutely love this lipstick. It give off pink with a light lavender shimmer. I suggest you moisterize your lips before applying this or else it would emphasize your imperfections. I would have to say this is my HG lipstick of all time! I wish I had bought back ups for this lipstick.
I love this eye shadow as a highlighter or and all over lid color. Its very pigmented and its not chalky at all. Easy to blend and its not as white as it looks in the container which is a good thing.
My friend actually picked this out for me and I love it. I don't think it looks good on its own because its kind of frosty. I usually wear this over MAC petting pink lip conditioner and the two gives off a really nice baby pink color. BTW it is my very first MAC lipstick and I'm hooked =D
I bought this product because I heard it was a dupe for Nars Orgasm blush and I thought I would love it. By looking at it you could totally see the similarity to Nars but the quality sucks. It not pigmented at all and if you want it to show you would have to really pack it on. It gives you more glitter than the actually color shown. I think it would look good if you pair with your fave blush but not on its own. It sort reminds me of Springsheen by Mac rather than Nars Orgasm.
I bought this product along with the sephora hydrating and smoothing foundation to set my foundation. It does make your face matte, but it's feels really heavy and it can look cakey if you apply too much. After many tries with this product, I found out my skin does not react well to these products. I would recommend this for those who has oily skin but not sensitive skin because it might break you out.
Liquid -Sephora - Hydrating & Smoothing Foundation

This is was the very first liquid foundation I tried when I first got into make up. At first I thought it worked pretty well because it covered all my imperfections and gave me a dewey finish. The downside of this product is it made my face very cakey, oily after a couple of hours, and I had a horrible allergic reation to this foundation. My face turned all red bumpy, and peeling even after I stopped using this product. It basically took a month for my skin to go back to normal. I would not recommend this product to anyone who has dry, normal, or sentive skin.
