OBSESSED, every time I wear this who ever I'm with compliments me on this and says that it smells really well with my pheromones (I guess?) It's really clean and fresh smelling.
I recently bought this for seeing that it does not contain any alcohol, but it does have aloe vera and witch hazel which I have been wanting to both try on my skin so I picked this up. I use it before bed and I can tell a difference in my skin's softness. Its a toner, but really does moisturize. I would recommend it
Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation

I am in love with this foundation, I can't say enough good things about it. It's PERFECT. Since it's winter and I live in a dry/cold state, I wanted to use liquid for the winter instead of my regular powder. I had it tested at Sephora, and the two friends I was with literally gasped at how flawless it made my skin, and it did. My roommate ALWAYS comments on how flawless my skin looks whenever I wear it, and she always notices when I do because of how amazing it looks on me. Naturally I have acne scars, blackheads, discoloration, I have it all but this makes my skin look so nice. It's perfect consistency, coverage, and it builds well. It's really expensive but to me, it is absolutely worth it. I use a 187 stippling brush with it.
I've used this for a week and I'm absolutely in love with it. I was using Neutrogena's grapefruit cream cleanser and it ruined my skin -it was flaky, constantly dry, and I had breakouts. After switching to the clear pore cleanser, my skin has been perfect. I wake up the next morning and my skin is perfectly balanced, it's not greasy, nor is it flaky or dry. My skin feels smooth and soft and I haven't had a single breakout. I'll continue buying this and have no desire of switching. Lovely, amazing product.
I use this product every day before I start to do my make-up. It smells and tastes delicious! (you can just lick it off your lips after) My lips feel softer and more full after using, I have THE smallest lips and after using this they look much fuller and softer. I wouldn't rebuy only because it's kinda expensive for what it is -flavored sugar.
I've tried two cupcake masks in the past when my skin is unbearable with break outs. It smells yummy and after I notice a difference in my skin the next morning. It's not a HG product of mine, but it works when my skin needs a pick-me-up
Makeup Brushes -MAC - #187 Duo Fiber Face Brush (Stippling, Skunk Brush)

My first MAC brush! I've had it for over a year, and did soo much research on this brush and heard so much hype about it -it's true. It's super soft, and works well with liquid or powder. I usually spray with with Fix+, then dip my brush in my studio fix powder and stiple it onto my face so the powder isn't as cakey. I recently started using it for contouring and blending in cream blush which it all does wonderfully. It's a little pricey, but totally functions as a blush/contour brush, plus liquid/powder foundation brush. It does it all.
I've used two bars of Karma Komba and the first time I was absolutely in love. I repurchased one a year later and found a different result. It may not have been from my shampoo, but after switching to karma komba from another shampoo, my hair was becoming noticeably more greasy within one day. I still LOVE the smell, it is definitely a personal preference if you will like the smell or not. It's very earthy with patchouli I think? It lathers well and really suds up as you're using it.
I have combination skin, with dry creeks and an oily T-zone. Ocean Salt works well for me, afterwards my skin feels so smooth that I can't stop touching it, and I definitely can tell that it is removing the dry, dead skin cells on my face. It does the job, but I wouldn't repurchase only because it is not a miracle worker for me. I do like the smell though.
what hasn't been said about Rock Star? it smells so delicious like the sweetest candy, it works, but it doesn't last on your skin after your shower. Try it out!
Primer/ Corrector -E.L.F. - Mineral Infused Face Primer
raroux 6/23/2011 1:57:00 PM
I have been looking for a good face primer forever. I've read reviews and there didn't seem to be one that worked all that well with smoothing the skin, making make-up last, and make it easier to apply your foundation. Until I found THIS primer. It works perfectly for me. As soon as I put it on my skin, there is a difference. It leaves my face silky feeling and blending in my concealer is so much easier. I haven't had any problems with the pump, if you just use it lightly. Absolutely NO complaints about this product and for only 3 or 6 dollars, it can't be beat
Lush shower jellies are so fun! Whoosh smells like a strong citrus that reminds me of summer. It's really cooling on your skin (especially if you put it in the fridge/freezer), while waking you up at the same time. They also last awhile longer than typical shower gels because you only need a tiny bit of the jelly to scrunch into a shower poof to lather like crazy. I gave it a 4 only because it's a scent that I get tired of easily, and it's a scent that you kind of have to be in the mood to use.
If your dermatologist will prescribe this, it is definitely worth it if you can get your hands on it. I'll admit that I don't use my Differin every night because I forget to, but when I do remember to use it at night, I wake up and my skin is completely changed. My pores seem smaller, there is MUCH less redness to my skin, there seems to be less blackheads, and it clears up any pimples I had the night before. It really is a miracle worker for me. I have acne scars from when my acne was really bad, and Differin helps lighten them, and even out my skin texture. Overall, it's an amazing product and I can't think of any cons with it.
I have only used my brush twice and I already am in love with it! I used it with the ELF studio powder which is also AMAZING. I've only tried the brush with powder so far, but it gives such good coverage and buffs the powder in nicely.The brush is so smooth, even compared to my MAC brushes. I have no complaints and will always repurchase if I would ever need to. For 6 dollars you can't go wrong.
This does exactly what a moisturizer is supposed to do: give enough moisture without making the skin look greasy after using. There is absolutely no fragrance to be bothered with after it's on your face which is a plus. It's not really a heavy moisturizer to use as a night cream, but it's wonderful to use in the morning after cleansing, it feels really light.
