Lip Treatments -Fresh - Sugar Rose Lip Treatment SPF 15

My all time favorite lip balm. Gave it 4 stars because of its price. $22.50 for a lip balm?! It seems crazy, but when you finally splurge you won't regret it.
I LOVE THIS FOUNDATION! After a long period of time using Neutrogena's Skin Clearing Liquid Makeup, I decided to go out and try a new one because that one tended to oxidize and turn orange throughout the day on my fair skin. I had heard Almay's hypoallergenic formula's were good on acne prone skin, so I tried the TLC foundation. To my surprise, the lightest color, 120 Ivory, matched my skin perfectly. And it doesn't turn orange thoughout the day which is a huge plus.The pump applicator is awesome, which a lot of drugstore foundations don't have. Definitely look into this foundation if you have fair, acne prone skin and are looking for a new foundation!
I'll keep this short and sweet. While this product does wonders for drying out and getting rid of breakouts, the smell is horrible and the packaging sucks. I'll continue to repurchase only because it works so well for me.
Cleansers -Aveeno - Aveeno Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser

I have struggled with bad skin for YEARS, and I have used every product imaginable. This foaming cleanser is just what I needed, I think it's gentle enough to do the trick. If you've been killing your skin with harsh products like I have, try taking a break from it all and using this. You won't regret it!
I usually don't review nail polishes, because there are just SO many out there...but this is my all time favorite polish for every season. It dries almost instantly and the color is universal. It dries so shiny with a jelly-like finish. Amazing! Will repurchase it when it's gone.
I was skeptical about these at first, but WOW, they're awesome! I have mine in 'Girl Flower' and they are so cute for spring/summer. I can't stop staring at them! The good thing about them is that they're not sticky, because they're not stickers..they're actual polish. (you can take them off with polish remover). I haven't experienced any chipping. The only reason I didn't give 5/5 rating is because it comes with 16 stickers which is an awkward number. They should make it 20 so you can do each hand twice?!
Foundations -Cover Girl - Natureluxe Liquid Silk Foundation

I, too, bought this because Taylor Swift was the spokesperson and I was sucked in. When I first tried it on my hand in the store, the lightest color (alabaster 305) matched perfectly so I bought it. When I put it on my entire face, it smooths on nicely and looks like a good light-coverage foundation. But then about 30 minutes later, it gets really oily around my T-zone..and my skin usually does not get that oily throughout the day. Adding powder just makes it look cakey. Did like the look/coverage, but left my face feeling gross. Will not purchase this again
Love these lotions, except for the fact that the smell is one that I've smelled many times before in other lotions. The packaging is so innovative and cute, great to throw in your purse. Although, there's not much lotion inside, but I guess that's what you get for the size/shape of the packaging.
Hair Removal -eos - Shave Cream Ultra Moisturizing Pomegranate Raspberry

I love this shave cream, I find I like it much better than a shave gel. If you do 4-5 pumps per leg, you get a nice rich creamy texture that shaves off perfectly. The packaging is cute and it smells great! Love all EOS products
two words: Flaky and dry. not my favorite, although it does give good volume. and the scent is odd, smells like candy.
Lip Gloss -mark - Electro-Lights Lip VitaGleam - Fuel

I love these to death, does anyone know where I can get them now?
This is my first MAC product I've ever bought, and I like it so far. I wear it all over my lid for just a shimmery wash of color. If you wear a faint layer, it looks nice but I find that if you put a lot more on..like you would a cream eyeshadow, it creases. So I put UDPP underneath and it's fine. Overall, I like it.
I keep repurchasing this product, I have it in the lightest shade. I find that if I don't set it with my Neutrogena Healthy Skin powder, it will sweat off during the day. I do love the coverage it gives when you first apply it. Love the packaging
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Lemon Drop SPF 15
rachelcohen19 11/27/2010 3:21:00 PM
Don't get me wrong, I love all of the EOS lip balms. But for some reason, this lemon one is really bad. I don't find it to be formulated like the others, it's really waxy and I don't feel like it really moisturizes my lips, rather, it leaves a gross layer on them that I want to immediately wipe off. The scent, too, is not pleasing. Wouldn't recommend this flavor, but I do love the others.
Lip Treatments -Smith's Rosebud Salve - Smith's Strawberry Lip Balm
rachelcohen19 11/27/2010 3:10:00 PM
I love this Rosebud Salve, the scent reminds me of a strawberry lip balm I would have used when I was in elementary school (which is by no means a bad thing). It's super moisturizing, and I like it a lot better than the classic rosebud scent. However, I do not like the fact that you have to stick your finger in it to apply it to your lips.
