Bought a blue green glitter called Over You for my toes. I have bad feet( bunions, big, poor nails) but this manages to make them look a bit better and for 2 bucks its a keeper. Glitter seems to hide the need to be perfectly painted on ,so thats a plus for home manicurists too,
I dont know what it is about the St Ives formulas but I am never impressed by the product. Great visuals and marketing on the labels but inside...meh...
Foundations -Wet 'n' Wild - Coverall Cream Foundation

I keep looking in the mirror, wondering why my skin looks so good and circles less dark. Oh.... I forgot... it because of this great foundation. A cream,in a squeeze tube, so easily dosed out , superb for travel and sanitary too. It is simply amazing and so cheap.Wet and WIld has hit it out of the park with this one.If you can find a shade to match( and they are limited) you are good to go. There are so few cream foundations out there at an affordable price that its worth a try if you never used one.
Eyeliner -Rimmel - Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner in Nude

Have it and its okay but dont stress if you cant find it. Its not unique but is cheap. Benefits High Brow , the concealer pen from Hard Candy Glamoflage or the ELF concealer pencil all work as great nudes on the waterline.
Lipstick -Wet 'n' Wild - MegaShield SPF 15 Lip Color # 373S Pink Champagne

Love lipgloss? Hate the slip and slide after a few minutes on your lips? Have to drag it out every 5 minutes to reapply? Then you need this lipstick. Its a highlighting gloss in a lipstick form. Adds shine and brightness to any lipstick ,can be worn alone and never smears.I own 2 and am always searching for backups because gloss is sticky, gooey , never lasts and disappoints. This does not.
Really disapointed in these eye liners , especially after using the great lipliners. They are not creamy, they drag, and colour payoff is just average.
Forget all the cheaper imitations and go for this. The case alone has saved it from breaking many times.Works years longer than traditional emery boards,
Polishes -Wet 'n' Wild - megalast nail color - Sugar Coat
snowwgirl 2/10/2013 11:28:00 AM
A very pale, sheer pink, best applied in one coat only for a clean nail look. Multiple coats looked streaky. Lasted 7 days without chipping! The polish for those who want a clean shiny "unpolished" look.
Primer/ Corrector -E.L.F. - Mineral Infused Face Primer

If you are using Monistat as a face primer, you will love this one. A clear gel that dries to a powder finish, it has the same feel as Monistat but is cheaper and comes with a pump to boot, so easy and sanitary to use.
The bronzer thats really a highlighter. And so different. Does not add a shiny frost like Benfits High beam, but rather a soft glow. Great over matte foundation to add dimension. Like Palladios' Herbal Highlighter but cheaper.
This stick shadow ( pink) doesnt even show up on my fair skin, even with multiple swipes. Last thing I ever buy from this brand.Like a cheap waxy crayon.
Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - EXTRA VIRGIN Coconut Oil (All brands)

HG now for me, now after 6 months of highlights. I have tried all the HE and DS deep treatments but.nothing beats this oil for performance.The change in shine and feel was startling. I use as a prewash ( a few hours before) or overnight soak and it really works to soften hair and bring back bounce and shine.I got hooked when I read coconut oil molecules are smalll and go INTO the hair instead of coating it. Also saw Organix does a line with coconut oil in it, so figured , just go straight to the real source. I put a small tub of it on counter and also use it as a face prewash.It wipes out all makeup, including waterproof mascara.
Styling Products -TRESemme - Instant Heat Tamer Spray
snowwgirl 1/26/2013 4:06:00 PM
Whats that on my hair?? Shine! Wow, used this with a big curling iron and the shine it added was immediately noticeable. Seems to help with hold while not feeling sticky too.If it really does help with heat protection, thats a bonus.
I gag at the thought of overpaying for Bioderma so was always on the hunt for a non burning eye makup remover. My new HG. Owned by L'Oreal, the Garnier formula comes in a squeeze top with a tinted bottle so you see how much you use and whats left. A thin liquid, there is no greasy residue, which is super important because I wear contacts and waterproof mascara and no drying under my eyes either.This is the Bioderma clone but at a 1/3 of price.I am writing about the Canadian formula but assume its similar to the US.
Thinking that Rimmel is a British company and caters to the fair skinned which is why their blushes seem to work so well. Never harsh or over the top looking. If you are pale or fair skinned and want a natural flushed/ blush look ( sans glitter) these should be your go to products.Try them if you especially have issues with blush colours looking too dark after one swipe.These are blendable, buildable and buffable.
