I started using this product every other day and my skin has COMPLETELY cleared up without drying. I used to have bad acne on my chin but it is GONE! I wish I would have found this stuff years ago! I will be buying this forever :)
This doesn't do anything for my lashes except make them black. I will be using this as a lower lash mascara since all I want them to be is a little more defined, not volumized and this mascara gives NO volume, length, or curl, so that's perfect for my lower lashes. Good thing I got this on sale.
I've gone through 4 of these & just bought another backup today during the 50% off Rimmel sale at Walgreens. This is the perfect WINTER bronzer for me. It's a light, subtle, bronze glow! I use Rimmel Sun Bronze for my summer bronzer since it's darker :) Amazing buy!
This is my HG work blush. It gives my face color without being over the top. This plus my contour of Benefit Hoola makes the perfect cheeks! I will be buying this until they stop making it, & before that happens I'm going to stock up with backups!
This bronzer/contour is perfect because it doesn't show up orangey like so many bronzers do. It's matte, easy to blend, and very buildable. The color also works on everyone. My favorite is that I can wear it as a bronzer AND contour in the same look.I will definitely be repurchasing when I run out of my box!
I hated this at first. It was wayyyyy too wet! I left it open for a whole day & now the consistency is perfect. I still have to be careful that I don't get too much mascara on the brush, but overall this is a great mascara. It holds my curl better than any other mascara I've ever used. It's also really, really black. Love it!

I usually love mint, but I HATED this. The smell made me so sick. It might have been because I'm pregnant & I bought this during my morning-sickness stage, but I had to give it away. It was way too sweet for my nose.
This is my HG contour. It's matte and very buildable. The brush it comes with is not practical for regular blush application, but it actually works perfectly to fit into the hollows of my cheeks for the contour! It's very soft :) I'm hoping to swap for more of these since it's getting d/c! LOVE IT!
I think I might be one of the only people who LOVES this! I ran out of the tube a while ago & wanted to try Revlon Colorstay, so I haven't repurchased it yet but I miss it! I'm going to get another tube tomorrow :) I would use this for nights out. It's not a full coverage foundation, but I liked that. I tend to get splotchy red spots on my cheeks, chin, and nose & this foundation really smooths out the coloring of my skin. It provides a smooth canvas for the rest of my makeup. The best part is it looks like my bare skin & is matte! LOVE IT! It doesn't feel heavy & last a long time with primer. I can't wait to get my new tube!
This really fans my lashes out & makes them loooooong. I'm not sure if it GROWS them, but I do like how the mascara works! I will buy again :)
Love it! It gives the most gorgeous golden light pink sheen! I also got this in a set at Ulta for $9.99 with Smitten lipgloss. This is one of my favorite highlighters! The only thing I wish was different was the size of the packaging. Although it's thin, it's HUGE. It is very hard to fit into a makeup bag!

I have the original size in original and sin, two mini originals, and a mini eden, but there was ONE of these left at Ulta so it was meant to be. I will never run out :)
Loose Powders -E.L.F. - Studio High Definition Powder

This is a pretty good product. I use it after I have applied ALL of my face makeup as a finishing powder. It makes my face look like I did a flawless job applying my makeup, even if I didn't. My favorite is how it blends my blush to look like a natural blush! I took some lippies off because if you apply too much, you face will feel greasy after a while. I use my ELF Studio Powder brush. To avoid the spilling everywhere, I left the useless puff inside. I shake the packaging before I use it, and flip the puff into the lid. From here, I dip my brush onto the product on the puff, since this is all you will need!
This shadow amazes me. I cannot believe that I paid $0.99 for such a high quality eye shadow! It is so soft, pigmented, and creamy. The color is a gorgeous gray-taupe. It is VERY similar to the lid shade in my Maybelline Stylish Smokes in Natural Smokes that I absolutely love, except Nutty is a tad bit lighter. I need to pick another one up before the 50% off Wet n Wild sale ends!

EXACT DUPE for Urban Decay X, which I've had for years! I see this as more orangey peach than peachy pink, but that's just me. The Urban Decay & WnW have the exact same texture, too. The only difference? I paid $1 for Penny and $18 for X. Pick it up now!
