I love it and it doesn't break my back out, HG!
Bath Treatments -LUSH - Ro's Argan Body Conditioner

Amazing! Saves me so much time to slap this on in the shower and emerge not having to apply lotion. Smells glorious too. A little goes a long way definitely.
The smell is alright, a little funky. It does temporarily tighten pores and I will keep using it regularly to see if it clears my skin up or works on blackheads.
HG! Love this shampoo. Makes my hair perfectly soft and tangle-free and keeps oil at bay. So convenient for flying as well. Only takes a few swipes of this bar on my head in the shower to make delicious suds. I've been using it for a few weeks and it seems like it will last me a very long time so the price is worth it.
Must have! After trying to find alternatives to BP (bc of research that it is damaging long-term, etc.) my skin was wrecked so I went back to BP with AcneFree (before I was using Dan Kern's) and then AcneFree Severe with little to no results. My mom gave me this wash and after using it consistently (morning/night) my skin cleared up almost immediately, I'd wake up with no new whiteheads. I've never seen anything work so fast on my acne. I love the smell and texture and it does remove stubborn face makeup (colorstay!).
Lipstick -Revlon - Matte lipstick in Mauve It Over

BEST MLBB! It looks sophisticated and could easily be casual or worn for a night out. I'm half-asian NW25, but it'd probably look good on anyone.
Skincare - Face -Johnson & Johnson - Purpose Cleanser

I love that this does not dry my skin but leaves it feeling "cleaner" than Cetaphil does. The foam is really nice and it removes makeup well. HG cleanser!
HOLY GRAIL lip balm! and such a great taste
I was excited at first because a friend of mine who has gorgeous skin recommended it to me. I bought it in medium and was very pleased with the coverage. It does accentuate any dryness, ANY, on your face so you have to be well moisturized before applying it. However, I was aghast to find that on my half-asian half-caucasian complexion it was PINK! My entire face was pink as if i was sunburned and the rest of my skin was normally colored. For this price, I can't afford to try all sorts of different shades to find mine, so I'll hold off on repurchasing.
Hair Color -Clairol - Natural Instincts Hair Color

although i heard some good things about this product, i was very disappointed. i was aiming for a reddish tint on my dark brown hair...but, MY HAIR DIDN'T EVEN CHANGE AT ALL! and it's frizzy now too! so not only did i waste almost $10, and an hour of dying it and cleaning up, but my hair is the same color.
i think this scent is sophisticated in an urban way, very sexy as well.
Self Tanners -Neutrogena - Neutrogena Sunless Tanner Instant Bronze
sweetcuppincakes 6/24/2004 1:51:00 PM
i used this (the streak-free lotion in deep) last night on my legs, arms, back, decollete and stomach and it gave my legs a healthy, tan-looking glow. however, my stomach and decollete ended up blotchy and not very tan at all. for some reason, all of the self-tanner stuck on my spine so i have this unattractive dark line on my back. at least i don't look noticeably too tan, it looks natural on my legs and arms, in fact i will have to reapply because my legs don't look tan enough. some advice: 1) put a light lotion on your knees, elbows, and ankles so that they don't absorb too much self tanner and get darker than the rest of you 2) don't even think about touching any fabric that you like, i messed up my favorite ralph lauren towel and 2 robes! 3) wash your hands at least 3 times unless you want orange palms
i bought this in "therapy". overall i think it's a good lip gloss, not absolutely fantastic, but good especially because it is cheap and there is a great color selection. not sticky at all or thick, slightly annoying smell/taste, but looks great. "therapy" is a very light color, looks very subtle on me.
Sunscreen -Coppertone - Endless Summer Ultrasheer Sunscreen SPF45
sweetcuppincakes 5/31/2004 2:44:00 PM
this is my hg sunscreen, it's even better than neutrogena ultrasheer spf 45. it goes on sort of heavy but it dries fast and doesn't feel oily or sticky and there is no overwhelming sunscreen smell. the scent is very subtle, just light, and it won't interfere with my perfume. it also doesn't make my skin shiny and oily though i haven't tried it on my face yet.
Liquid -Almay - Clear Complexion Blemish Healing Makeup
sweetcuppincakes 5/13/2004 11:16:00 PM
This is the best foundation I have ever found. I have combination skin and a very oily t-zone and I tend to break out often but this was non-greasy, blended well, matched my eur-asian skin-tone (Which is pretty hard), and wasn't streaky or runny even after a workout outside in the california heat. it doesn't seem to clog my pores either. i wish it had better coverage but i'll just have to try the concealer that comes with it. overall i am very happy with this product.
