Lipstick -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Matte 903C Just Peachy

This is a light nearly nude peach. It looks great with a warm smokey eye but a bit off with cool colors on the eyes. I feel washed out wearing this lip color and a cool eye color. The texture can be dry so I would advise wearing lots of moisturizer and exfoliating before hand. A nice pink or clear lip gloss would also make the texture smoother. Over all, very nice color and cheap! Definitely worth a try for the cost.
Powder -L'Oreal - Bare Naturale Powdered Mineral Foundation

I have the same problem as other do with this foundation, it oxidizes on my skin and makes me appear orange. The coverage is light to medium which I like, but it doesn't last long. I have to wear a lab coat for work and it leaves marks on the neck area. I've had a customer ask once if it was iodine on my coat once but it was actually the make up... very embarrassing considering the color of iodine is deep orange.... I wanted to try a medium coverage foundation for my oily skin, but this sadly wasn't it.
This mascara did nothing for my eyelashes. I have short lashes and the brush just didn't grab on to them. The brush's thickness actually made it difficult for me not to hit my eye lid in an effort to make the mascara catch my lashes. There was no lengthening, little volume, and it hardly made my lashes noticeable at all... I might as well have been wearing nothing on my eyes. I'm a contact wearer and it also ended up making my eyes irritated and itchy my eyes. It was just not impressive to me at all.
Hmm I think I might have to try this mascara in warmer temps? It did make my eye lashes long but it clumped when I applied a second coat... Or if I didnt apply the 1st coat just right... I wear contacts and the clumping would flake and irritate my eyes... I want to try it again possibly in the summer.
This cologne grabbed my attention when I first smelled a sample of it in a magazine. I love the how the notes of grapefruit, orange blossom, ginger, and tobacco go together. I had to get this for my man and it smells incredible him. I can't get enough of it!
Yay Carmex! This one smells amazing! I've had a recent cold sore break out :( This really helped to moisturize my lips and the sore. A little goes a long way and it feels really great on my lips.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Strawberry Body Lotion

This product would be ideal for normal skin types because it is light but it is also sticky. If I apply this after I come out of the shower, and after drying off a bit, I can avoid the sticky texture. The smell is great. Its a bit pricey for the amount you get and again the texture really turns me away. Wont be buying again
This worked great for reducing and eliminating my nasty cystic acne. It smells like tea tree and licorice which I prefer over some of the more medicine smelling spot treatments I've tried. A word of caution, try not to go over board with using it, or your skin will become red, dry, and irritated. I would sometimes have to go a max of using it every other night, depending on how sensitive my skin became.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser

This stuff was sooo drying on my skin. Normally my skin is very oily and I was breaking out bad when I purchased this, but it did more damage than good for my skin. It semi reduced the acne, but it did not justify the drying and peeling skin. I thought I could use a thick moisturizer for the dryness and I tried to use oil cleansing in conjunction but nothing helped the drying and peeling. Not a good product.
I love this face wash! I have acne prone very oily skin, especially during the summer time, and this face wash does a very good job of removing dirt and oils with out making my skin too dry. I've noticed it does leave a little bit of make up behind like mascara and some eyeshadow but toner cleans it up easily.
Moisturizers -Boots - Expert Sensitive Light Moisturizing Lotion

I really like this moisturizer. It hydrates my skin nicely with out leaving it greasy or clogging my pores, which is a huge plus for my fussy skin. The only problem I have with it is the packaging. I would prefer a pump to better control the amount that I need. At times, when I am in a hurry, I can end up pouring too much out of the bottle. Over all this is a small hiccup and I really like the product.
