Loose Powders -Ben Nye - Neutral Set translucent powder
sammers 1/21/2010 7:56:00 PM
This is just as good as MAC Blot, for a fraction of the price. This doesn't come in a sifter jar, so I just used one that I already had. I use my BE powder brush for application. I purchased this on Amazon.com but you can find it on many Theatre makeup websites.

I have used this brush for at least a year and I absolutely love it. I need to go buy another one to have as a backup! :)
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack

This eyeliner lasts all day. Great product....
I really like this powder - especially for the price! It has a pleasant smell and texture. I bought this with the L'Oreal Quick Stick during a Buy one, get one deal at Walgreens.
I have this in buff and it matches my skin perfectly. It is working well for me during the winter months, but the true test will be during our humid summer. It is very easy to apply and has a matte finish.
Liquid -Classified Cosmetics - ERA Face Spray Foundation

I couldn't wait to get this in the mail and had high expectations after reading the reviews. The color was wrong and the coverage was too sheer. I tried applying with a sponge and spraying it on, but neither application worked for me. I used the color matching program on the ERA website, but it was too light.
Urgh, I was so disappointed in this compact foundation. I had high hopes for it, but the powder just sat on top of my skin. YUCK!
I have this in the cream and have been very pleased with how my skin looks. It doesn't control the oil, but it helps keep my skin smooth. Will definitely purchase again. EDIT: I switched to the lotion and like it better. Fantastic product!
I have been very pleased with this face cleanser. It is all natural - which I love - and is great for oily skin. Some people may not like the medicinal smell. I can actually tell a difference in how 'clear' my skin looks. Update: This wasn't quite as good as I initially thought it was so I'm take off a few lippies.
This is my favorite Tea Tree Shampoo. I never have a dry itchy scalp when I use this. I follow with the Tea Tree or Aloe Conditioner (both are great).
Cleansers -Cetaphil - Daily Facial Cleanser (Normal to Oily Skin)

I used MD Forte products before descovering this cleanser. I think it works just as well for a fraction of the price! :) UPDATE: This cleanser is ok. I have been using Desert Essence Thoroughly Clean Face Wash which I like much better.
Treatments -Paula's Choice - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Gel Exfoliant
sammers 8/6/2006 10:16:00 PM
I love this product! It has helped control my oily skin and diminish adult acne. My skin looks so much better after using this........ I have also tried the 2% BHA Liquid and it works just as well.
Wonderful makeup for oily skin - especially for those who live in a humid climate. It has great coverage and doesn't have a "fake" look. I have tried Clinique, Lancome, Revlon, Prescriptives, Bare Escentuals and Loreal. I use this in Warm Tawney and it matches my skin perfectly.
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - Line Intensifique in Earthen Rock

Very easy to apply but not quite dark enough for my taste. I will go with a darker brown or black next time....
