The product really does help with highlighting but if you're using it to conceal things like under the eye, then you should look for another concealer. The concealer is very sheer and only helps brighten. I did not like the pen application because the brush is very unhygienic.
Pressed Powders -Avon - Ideal Shade Pressed Powder

Love this product!! Instantly matifies my face and gives its a smooth finish. I have really oily skin and this keep my skin from getting more oily. I got this in the neutral shade and the color matches very well. The powder is pretty much translucent.
These are the only wipes that I have tried that do not sting or dry out my eyes or face. They make me feel like I am actually getting the makeup off my face. They don't remove eyeliner very well but it is very difficult to remove eyeliner in the first place.I also love that they have tea tree oil which is good for the skin if you're acne prone.
Love this product. It doesn't leave my skin dry or striped after I finish washing which is a must. The smell is really nice and it's not abrasiveness on the skin.
Moisturizers -Murad - hydro dynamic ultimate moisturizer

Moisturizes my skin very well. Makes my skin feel really soft and supple. It doesn't leave my skin feeling oily or dry. It is usually better for the summer. I might need something more moisturizing and creamy for the winter for my drier areas.
Highlighters -Milani - Glimmer Stripes in Terra Glimmer

I never even got to try the shadow because it arrived in the mail all shattered and crumbly. The whole tray of makeup fell out of the pan and onto my desk when I opened the packaging. Very fragile and the wasn't condensed enough. I ended up salvaging 2 colors, the pink ones, and putting them in separate containers which I hope I can use later.
The Bosciaís Luminizing Black Mask is one of their newest masks on the market. Something unique about this mask would be its black color and the peel off when removing. I personally like masks that I could wash off with water and the difficulty in taking off this mask turned me off a bit. It took me twice as long to remove all the residue. The peel off of the mask may have been the downfall of the quality for it became really frustrating and it made me feel like my face was still dirty. The packaging is like most but they give you very little product (2.8 oz). I needed a great deal of product to cover my face which is on the smaller side. The product would not last very long if it was used on a daily basis and the price does not come cheap. (Retail Value $34)
The Tea Tree Face Mask from The Body Shop is by far the best mask I have tried till now and I will continue using it. This mask is great when you hit that stressful day or week and you need some rest and relaxation. The tea tree in this really helps with the acne during stressful times. It does leave your face with a tingling feeling which gives me a sign that itís working, the sting can be overwhelming when you put too much. Although I do not experience a great amount of acne, this does help when midterms and finals come around and school is driving me crazy. Life can be hectic and tiring, so why not put a mask on it. A container of this stuff can probably last you a good year for the price. (Retail Value $15)
This curler is flatter than my Revlon Curler which makes it easier for me to curl my lashes in one go because it can get all my lashes at one time. This tends to pinch a bit in the corner if you press the curler into your socket too much. A light hand will do wonders when it comes to getting the perfect curl. This curler is great for flatter and wider eyes. A con about this curler would be the price (Retail Value $19) which I would never pay if I didnít read so many good reviews on this curler.
The custom part about this mascara is the brush which can change from length & Drama to Lenth & Definition. Personally I donít see a great difference but there a bit. I prefer the Length and definition which gave me longer and more lashes. A con about the product would be the brush which tends to be a bit flimsy and bendy. This tends to run a little at the end of the day.
Love the mia! It's the perfect sonic cleansing brush for my face. After I wash my face it feels squeaky clean and smooth. Lotion absorbs better after the deep cleansing. I notice that my pores are getting better with the deep pore cleansing brush.
Love this mascara. This mascara never clumps on me and it has more of a natural look which if what I'm usually going for when it comes to everyday looks because I usually don't put on makeup unless I'm feeling tired or dead looking. I lengthens very well also.
Sunscreen -Shiseido - Extra Smooth Sun Protection Cream For Face SPF38
polly2990 11/16/2011 2:29:00 PM
This is the only sunscreen that would not leave an oily shine on my face after applying. It also controls the oil on my face through out the day because I can get really oily at the end of the day. Best sunscreen I have used by far. The sunscreen tends to be a bit oily as the day progresses probably due to my own oil secretion also.
Lipstick -The Body Shop - Delipscious Sheer Lip Colour
polly2990 9/6/2011 5:55:00 PM
I got the lychee in 01 and the color is really pretty and should match most skin types. The color is very build-able and can look like you put lipstick on. The balm can be somewhat drying when put on alone but it works great when you put on chapstick or lip balm with no color on before you apply this and it will feel non-drying.
Love this product. I found this product for cheap at Tjmaxx, so I decided to give it a try because I have heard Fekkai products are pretty good. After applying the product into my hair, it feels slimy but after blow drying my hair with a brush it becomes straighter and less frizzy and feels very clean. If you hope for your hair to become stick straight this will not do the job but it does make my hair look like I have straightened it with a flat iron. This is a very good alternative to straightening your hair everyday.
