I really like this for a weekly treatment. It definitely takes the "dullness" out of my hair from buildup, and makes my oilyish roots feel very smooth, strong and healthy. I wouldn't recommend putting it below ear length though, because it will dry out your ends. Try it out, you'll love it!
Eye Shadow -Cover Girl - Eye Enhancers Trio - Shimmering Sands

This is so beautiful! Its shimmering radiance is spectacular! I love the lightest two shades dearly, but the darkest isn't very pigmented, sort of dry, but you can work with it using water and packing it on well. This trio creates such a pretty everyday wearable look!
I really love this mascara and believe me I have tried a lot. It's right up there with my Maybelline Full n' Soft which is also amazing. It creates very dramatic lashes that aren't spidery. Whenever I wear this (along with covergirl lash exact for added length), people ask me if I am wearing false lashes. You do have to be careful with this mascara though, because if you use too much it can get a vit clumpy. I don't have problems with raccoon eyes, but it is pretty hard to get off (I use the waterproof formula). Its great!
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Super Lustrous Lipgloss - Nude Lustre
polkadotxo994 10/15/2011 4:43:00 PM
I am love this gloss! It's very shiny, and has a beatiful rosy tone to it! It's definitely not a true "dead" looking nude, which I like, but it's still wearable with a smokey eye or something dramatic. I think it would flatter so many skin tones. BUY THIS, you won't regret it.
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst in Soft Rose [DISCONTINUED]

This is my HG lipstick for fall/winter. The color is so beautiful, its bold without being at all over the top. I like the brownish red tone it has. The formula is very long lasting, smooth and pigmented. If you're considering buyi8ng this lipstick then definitely go for it, it's amazing!
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)
polkadotxo994 6/30/2011 3:00:00 PM
I love this stuff! It keeps my eyeshadow on all day looking vibrant, and creaseless throughout the whole day! I have even worn eyeshadow in the water with this on and it held up pretty well! The only down sides are the packaging of course since you can't get all the product out and the fact that it's expensive. Otherwise it's awesome!
Palettes -NYX - Nude on Nude Natural Look Kit (9 eyeshadow + 2 lip)
polkadotxo994 6/30/2011 12:47:00 PM
This is like fun in box form! I love the way that it's packaged in a cute little cubular box. When you snap open the top, there are 9 beautiful eyeshadows waiting for you. 3 are matte, 4 are shimmer, 2 are matte with sparkle. The matte shadows are very nice for a super natural look, although the cream matte shade is the slightest bit chalky, but it's not a problem. The 4 shimmery shades are all STUNNING, especially the gold in the middle of the bottom row, and the warm brown in the middle of the middle row. The left shadow on the middle row is a dupe for MAC Allthatglitters and is very pretty. The matte with shimmer shadows, are both dark outercorner/crease colors and blend out really well. The eye portion is amazing in this kit! Now onto the lips. There are two lip colors, one is a red toned berry pink color that is very frosty. At first I didn't like it because the frost emphasized the lines in my lips, but if you apply a lip balm beforehand, and then apply it in a vertical motion, it is a beautiful color! The other color is a baby pink with no shimmer, it's pigmented and really cute. I'm in love with this kit, and plan on buying more of them!
This is my favorite brush out of my whole collection. It's bristles are softer than a dream, and there are so many of them densely packed in there! It applies powder very evenly and is great for applying and blending out blush and bronzer for a very natural look. My love for this brush is indescribable. The first day I got it I was walking around petting my face with it, it's that soft. It's like addicting to the skin haha, I'm wierd. Anyways, for only $13 it's a steal, compared to other kabuki/bronzer brushes. Don't even think about not buying it!
Mascara -Maybelline - Full 'N Soft Mascara Waterproof
polkadotxo994 6/30/2011 12:33:00 PM
This is the best mascara I have EVER used! I'm in love with it. You only need a few coats to build up full n' soft lashes. The amount of volume and length is amazing with no clumping. The packaging is ok, but I wished it came in a fun colored bottle or something. Overall, it is totally worth the 6 bucks!
Scrubs -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Stress Control Power-Clear Scrub
polkadotxo994 6/30/2011 12:05:00 AM
I looked up reviews for this product as I was looking for a new scrub, and saw the great reviews! So I went and bought it for $7. The first time I used it, it irritated my skin a bit, which is why I took off one star. I think it was the cooling sensation that irritated my sensitive skin. After a few uses though, it was ah-mazing. It smells just like lushious cucumbers and it is so wonderfully creamy. YUM! The color is very attractive! As far as clearing my skin I think it does a good job, but I can't tell yet since I havn't used it enough. Overall its fantabulous.
I actually really like this mascara, if you use it like I do. First I apply a few swipes to my lashes, then go in with a volumizing mascara (L'oreal Voluminous) and then with the One by One. It creates a really beautiful volumized yet defined look, and it's actually nice to wear alone on days you want to look very natural. The brush is what makes it so good. It has pointy long rubber bristles that really get each lash. It stays on in water and doesn't flake much and is very black so I would try it if I were you!
Cleansers -Aveeno - Ultra-Calming Foaming Cleanser
polkadotxo994 3/31/2011 3:18:00 PM
This is a really nice cleanser if you have irritated itchy skin that needs to be soothed, or just if you want a great gentle cleanser. The texture is very foamy, not like a foaming liquid cleanser and not like a shaving cream. It's just a foam lol. Anyways, I feel like it doesn't remove my makeup as well as a thicker cleanser but it's alright. As long as you follow up with a toner it is fine. It really does calm redness, and doesn't irritate my skin or break it out, so it's pretty good!
This is such a creamy, thick and rich moisturizer which is why it is so amazing! It never leaves my oily skin feeling greasy, and doesn't clog my pores. My skin feels super soft all day after using it. I recently had a reaction to these neutrogena makeup remover wipes and my skin was dry and peely for days, even though i was moisturizing literally about ten times a day. What I did after I bought this moisturizing cream was I applied it thickly to my face like a mask, took an hour nap and then wiped the excess off. My skin was cured and felt like butter. EVERYONE GO BUY THIS!!!
Pressed Powders -Maybelline - Dream Matte Pressed Powder
polkadotxo994 3/31/2011 3:09:00 PM
I am in LOVE with this powder! It gives such a smooth air brushed look to the skin and is NEVER cakey! It also has nice coverage and evens out and corrects my concealer and foundation giving it a flawless look. Also, I have SUPER oily skin, and most powders keep me matte for about an hour, but this one keeps it for about three, so Love it!
Moisturizers -Cetaphil - Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF15
polkadotxo994 3/27/2011 2:32:00 AM
Ehhh, not the worst possible, but not good. It's a little irritating on my skin and feels and smells like sunblock. It also feels a bit greasy, but I don't think it breaks me out too badly. Guess I'll keep looking
