I love this stuff. Its the best concealer I have used for blemishes, and i don't think it is hard to apply, you just have to blend a little. Light matched my skin well- i'm w2 in true match, if that helps anyone. Worth buying, especially because its one of the cheaper concealers I've found.
I love this mascara :) Not flaky, good color, good price, looks nice. the brush give great definition and coats every lash without getting to clumpy. Best drugstore mascara I have used, except maybe voluminous. Much better than falsies, just because of the brush, and the price. :DD
The color seemed to match on my hand in the store, but on my face it looked a little orange. It blends well, but is a little oily, and made my skin feel greasy and rather unpleasant. Might be great for dry skin or people with less imperfections to cover, but i didn't think it worked for me. My friend bought the powder though, and said it was nice. Not a good choice for oily or acne prone skin.

I got this on sale for $6. Its kind of hard to apply because of the curved brush, and i can't really use it on my bottom lashes. On my top lashes, with a few coats, it creates nice volume and is pretty pigmented. It isn't really waterproof though, because if my face gets wet, it gets allll around my eyes. Its not bad, but I wouldn't repurchase
I got this in a two in one pack that was pretty cheap. The lipstick-like applicator was a little annoying and bulky. The spf is nice, but it feels a little weird on my lips, and overall I wouldn't buy it again, although it does make my lips softer. If you are looking for a good balm, try softlips or burts bees, and skip this one.

My friend suggested this to me so I thought I'd give it a shot. But i have kind of sensitive skin, and it made my skin all red and tight, and actually made it look worse. It works for people with tougher skin, but I would never buy this again.
My shade: 001 ivory the package: the pump is nice the pros: it has spf 20, didn't make me break out, blends nicely the cons: it isn't super long lasting, and doesn't have the best coverage, my biggest problem is that it has tiny sparkles in it, which play up pimples and oily spots that i would rather conceal, also, it was a little expensive for a walmart foundation.
I used to have this one in vanilla, and now i have it in wildberry. I love it, the slim package is nice, the smell is nice. Its not filmy or gooey like other balms that use petroleum, and it makes my lips... soft, thus the name. Worth using. :)

I tend to like the suave naturals body washes, but I guess the fragrance in this one reacted with my skin, because it made it really itchy and I had to stop using it. Its a nice body wash, but if you have sensitive skin, i would suggest a different scent, like ocean breeze.

I absolutely love this stuff. When i wake up the morning after putting this on, my skin looks smoother and less red. It does also help with acne. Its a bit expensive, but definitely worth a try for anyone with acne or redness.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser
snowcat123 11/24/2010 7:04:00 PM
I had heard such good things about this product, and I have some rather minor acne, so I decided to try it. I regret it. I have rather sensitive skin, and after a few washes with this, it was red and really warm. I thought I might have a fever, but I stopped using it, and it went away. This obviously works for some people, so if your skin isn't sensitive, maybe its worth using, but I am never going to buy it again. I now use dermalogica clean start wash off, which doesn't irritate my skin.
I have this in 2 shades- wink of pink and the lightest one (nude?). Anyway, they definitely look darker than the cap suggests, but leave a nice flush that looks natural. I tend to put lipbalm on underneath, and then blend it with my fingers before it dries. It does fade a bit by the end of the day, which actually looks really nice, because you still have a rosy tint. Depending on how much you put on, you can get very intense color. Its worth trying, because the price isn't bad and its really easy to apply.

I have this in eggplant and blackest black. I LOVE the blackest black one : It goes on smooth, stays on all day, and is REALLY waterproof, i went swimming with it on a couple of times. However, the eggplant wasn't that nice. It was sparkly and made my eyes look kind of blah... I would repurchase the black, but not the eggplant.
Pressed Powders -Maybelline - Dream Matte Pressed Powder
snowcat123 11/24/2010 6:51:00 PM
This is a nice face powder. Its nothing amazing, but it reduces shine and oil, and doesn't look too powdery. I think I might switch to a talc free powder after I run out, but it doesn't irritate me skin, which is pretty sensitive, so i wouldn't mind using it again. I really like the packaging, which is pretty creative, and stays shut in my bag. I wear it over my foundation, and it helps set it too. Overall, if you are looking for a nice powder, reasonably priced, then this is worth trying.
Blush -Physicians Formula - Mineral Wear Talc-Free Blush Rosey Glow
snowcat123 11/24/2010 6:47:00 PM
This blush is amazing! It gives me a nice flush, like I've just stepped inside from a really cold day, without making me look blotchy, washed out, or like snow white. the color works well with my skin, and it stays on pretty well. The clasp isn't the best, and the brush it comes with is a bit too small. I would prefer if it came without a brush, and was a bit less expensive, because I use my own brush anyway. Overall, this blush is worth buying, and it looks natural because its talc-free, so it isn't powdery at all. :)
