I FRIGGIN LOVE THIS THING LIKE ITS MY BABY (which i dont have lol)!!!! My holy grail HANDS DOWN! Perfect coverage for being so light weight. gives me a nice dewiness without looking shiny since I have oily skin. makes the redness from my acne disappear and i actually think it repairs my skin! my skin always feel sooo supple and moisturized during and after use! however, the only con is the stupid price tag! 70 bucks for 1.4 oz....i can't afford that unless I go on an only 1 ramen per week diet lol. Still love...picking up samples next time i go to sephora :)
I personally love yogurt masks because yogurt lightens acne scars, kill acne causing bacteria, and evens out your complexion. Kiwi is full of vitamin C for your skin! I used to make my own mask, but it got too extensive for my busy life, so i bought this. It's REALLY moisturizing. I didn't like this too much during the summer for my oily skin, but I picked it up again during the winter and OMG fantastic. My skin is flakey and dry during the winter (cursed NJ and its snow) but thanks to this I have a solution to combat it. My makeup goes on smoother especially if i do this mask before applying it. It smells great too! I says leave on for 15 minutes, but I don't think thats sufficient time to let the moisture and vitamins soak up into your skin. i usually leave it on for about 40 minutes and rinse off starting with warm water and then with cold water. apply a moisturizer and makeup OR night cream if at night after wards.
Lip Treatments -Chapstick - Lip Moisturizer SPF 15 Vanilla Mint

It's affordable, smells great, and works soo well! I remember i had this epidemic of flaky lips and it WOULD NOT go away even with exfoliation and other lip products. then i remembered mint products helped my last epidemic, so i ran to my purse searching for this. OMG WORKED WITH IN 4 HOURS!!! I saw instant results! I love this chapstick!!!! It's my HG!! I like the winter mint one too, but i like this alot more. The only downsides are that it's not as popular as cherry so it's not easy to find it and i run out soo quickly! Love it. Will recommend to pretty much everyone :)
This contains more water than actual product to be honest. My first impression was "Why is this so runny?" and it doesn't exfoliate well either. Sure, it smells great and is natural but it doesn't do its job right.

I've used this about 6 times and OMFG!!! It's the best mask out there and I have tried every mask out there from drugstore to high end to homemade. I have oily and acne-prone skin that has problems staying unclogged, unflakey, and smooth. This mask changed everything! I mix about 1 teaspoon of each ACV and the clay (its powdery) and apply it to my face for 30 mins 2-3 times a week and i see significant results! My skin is smooth, my breakouts are becoming less frequent and huge, and my pores are clearer. and this is only the 2nd week! BEWARE...you will break out the first and second time but its normal! DON'T GIVE UP ON IT!
I love the applicator and how it vibrates to separate lashes, but not a fan of the formula. It runs, smears, and hard to apply without getting it on your lids. It also takes FOREVER to dry. I would apply it and 5 minutes later blink and it'll smudge. However, it's great for layering on top of other mascaras because the vibrating keeps it from clumping :)
I have a sample from clinique at the moment and I LOVE THIS MASCARA! This is the only non waterproof mascara that doesn't give me raccoon eyes! It curls my straight lashes, not dramatically but enough for me. It's easy to apply and I am going to repurchase ASAP.
Mascara -Maybelline - Lash Stiletto Voluptuous Waterproof

One of my go to mascaras! I have straight, thin lashes so I have to use waterproof if I ever want some curls in my lashes. I have to curl with eyelash curler and then apply this. Waterproof mascaras, no matter what, will flake so i like to coat it with a non waterproof mascara. Unlike other waterproof mascaras, I can layer mascaras because it dries fast, apply thinly without clumps, and just looks great. I'm not a fan of big bold lashes, so this mascara is perfect. I like the natural, but chic look :)
Misc Beauty Tools -Palladio - Rice Powder Blotting Papers

I LOVE THESE. They not only have a blotting side, but also a mattifying powder side that doesn't break me out :) Unfortunately, I don't really like the packaging because it tends to get smashed in my bag and powder gets everywhere. Other than that I'm fine!

I saw this about 2 years ago on Youtube and I doubted it would work on my oil spill of a face so I disregarded it. THAT WAS A STUPID MOVE! I started using it over the summer and OH MY JESUS! It's my HG item. I apply it once in the morning and I'm good for 8 hours before I have to blot. Usually I had to blot every 2 hours! I can wear it alone (need thin layer though) or under my makeup. It's all good :)
My mom says you're supposed to only use it on your body, but I think it's for the face lol. First of all, for the first week I could not figure out how to squirt this out for the life of me! After every use it locks and then you have to turn the knob a specific way and ughh it was annoying. Anyways, I have pretty oily and acne prone skin. I use Proactiv and in the winter it dries me out sooo much, so I have to use this lotion when I need it. Also because of winter, I like to mix this in with my foundation since my foundation is meant for oily skin, not oily skin that suddenly become dry in the winter! I like this lotion a lot and I will deffinately purchase again.
I needed something that would exfoliate my flakey oily skin without irritation. I've been using St. Ive Apricot scrub, but it was too harsh. Then I switched to Neutrogena scrub (the natural one) and it was too fine. This is perfect! I use it in the morning before applying makeup and it goes on smoothly. I use it at night to get the makeup off and OMG I'm surprised there was still a lot of makeup on my skin even though I used wipes and everything!
This is an okay product, but nothing amazing. I like the smell, but it really did nothing for my skin. When I washed it off, which took a lot of effort believe it or not, it left my skin feeling weird and dry. Plus, in the winter it's too drying, even for my oily skin!
I used to love this fragrance, but I can't stand it anymore, which is not the product's fault. I accidentally left food in my volleyball bag one day and forgot to take it out for 3 weeks. As expected, it went bad and rotted really bad. It made my shoes, kneepads, and clothes stink! So I tried to remedy the problem with this perfume. It smells really good and I loved it, but mixed with the rotten smell and sweat just made me sick. So whenever I smell it now I get that sick feeling because of that! Still love it though :)
I LOVE THIS! I usually hate wearing lip gloss because it's sticky and I hate wearing lipstick because it's drying and thick feeling. I usually go with just chapstick or tinted lip balm, so this feels exactly the same weight and comes in many colors. My favorite is peach parfait because I like how it flatters my skin tone and looks really natural. It does come off easily when you drink, but I'm fine with that.
