Blush -Maybelline - Dream Mousse Blush - All colors [DISCONTINUED]

I found this to be too glittery and I couldn't get it to not look splotchy on my cheeks. Adding more to build it up just added more glitter too. Not a fan. I got the Rose Petal color which wasn't a bad color but I just didn't like the finish. I tried applying with my fingers, with a sponge and with a brush and just gave up.
I think it's okay. I'm very pale and the fine glitter in this really sits on top of my face and makes me look like I blasted my face with glitter. I like the color but the glitter factor on me is too much.
I've been using this twice a day along with some other products and my skin as experienced nothing short of a miracle. I went from constant cystic acne on my chin and occassional pimles (but BIG ones when they came) in my t-zone. With this cleanser, the acne.org treatment, and the 10% Alpha Hydrox enhanced lotion, my skin is totally clear and glowing. Really! I guess I finally found the combo of products that unlocks the key to great skin for me. I'm thrilled.
LOVE IT. Oh- My- God, this is saving my skin. Soo, here's the backstory: I have never had acne problems since my teenage years. I was on ďthe pillĒ forever and I stopped about a year ago and my skin went nuts. Zits all the time paired with painful cystic acne on my chin. I am very fair and even when I wasnít actively broken out, I looked awful from the brown splotches all over my face. I must have spent $1,000 on different washes, moisturizers, treatments, etc. I saw this stuff on this website about 3 weeks ago, ordered it from the acne.org website and Iím madly in love. I didnít change one other thing about my regimen, so it must be this product really working. My cystic acne lumps that were ever-present have gone away COMPLETELY! Not a single blemish on my face. It is a little drying, but I am just using lotion over it and its fine. I just started putting this on my back at night to clear up the new problem of back-acne I had crop up in the last 6 months, so weíll see how it does on that. Anyways, the bottle will last forever with the amount Iím using and it WORKS. Iíll cry if I canít get more. YEAH! UPDATE--- Been using it for a month and still LOVE IT. Doesn't do a whole lot for my back, if anything, I think its creating little pimples on my neck, which I didn't have before. Oh well. My face looks incredible- 2000% better! I feel so relieved to be free from acne's clutches.
I like this for when I'm feeling greasy. It's not super harsh, but it definately goes a little deeper than, say, other cream washes. I feel very clean afterwards, which I like. Doesn't fight my acne though.
I used this for years when I had nice skin and it was my standby. But, oddly, when I turned 29, my skin went crazy and it hasn't helped the acne at all. I think it does a great job of removing makeup. My husband detested the smell, though. A nice cheap product if you're not acne ridden like myself.
Hair Styling Tools -Unlisted Brand - Solia Ceramic Ion Flat Iron

I love mine. It was my first flat iron and I think it works great. No complaints. I have wavy hair, BTW. My mother recently visited and she's got Diana Ross curly hair and I blew it out and then used my Solia on her and her hair looked amazing! She was completely blown away and now she wants her own iron too.
Styling Products -Matrix - Biolage - Leave in Hair Tonic

I've been using this for years (back when it was called something else) and I love it. For days when I'm letting my wavy hair go au natural, I spray this in, finger comb, and add mousse. I use it as a light conditioner/detangler. My mother has very curly hair and has been ripping a comb through it. I saw her doing this the other day and sprayed her hair with the Tonic and her comb slid right through. Now, she's got her own bottle!
Eye Shadow -Neutrogena - Mineral Sheers for Eyes-Sand 40

I love this, nice and sheer- hard to overdose on. I like this for looking like I'm not "made up." I'm a pastey girl and any dark shadows tend to just make me look haggard, and this doesn't do that. Yay! It could, however, have a little better staying power.
This is my go-to mascara. Cheap, good, looks great.
Well, I must be doing something wrong because I am breaking out from this. I've got 2 monsters coming in- one above my lip and one on my forehead- the two places I never get zits. Bummer. I used it 3 times and within 48 hours of the first use, my face broke out. I'll let these clear up and try it again and if I get different results, I'll update. UPDATE- I tried again after my acne cleared up and it was a bad idea. I am using a face wash after the oil but within 2 days I get huge pimples after using this. Oh well.
After reading reviews here, I tried it. I was skeptical that a powder would exfoliate as I'm used to a "scrub" but was quite surprised at how well it did. My skin was much softer after the first use. I was using it once a day but my skin was getting very dry and scaly, so I've cut back. I actually managed to burn my face with it on the second use by rubbing it into my cheek too long. It's still odd to me that a cream can exfoliate but it does work. It's pretty expensive, but the bottle will last a while I think. It will, however, last a while and I'm happy with the results using it every other day. UPDATE: Been using this for 2 months and I am addicted. I now use it every night without the dryness- perhaps my skin got used to it? My regimen at night is now to wash my face with cheap old Noxema, use this to exfoliate, apply the acne.org treatment to my "t zone" and follow it with a retinol night lotion. My acne has completely cleared up. My skin is fresh and bright. I love it!
Yuk. It's like applying 5 year old mascara. I bought it this week, tried it once, and hated it. Even while I was trying to apply it it was flaking and looking gross. What a waste of money!
This is my favorite foundation thus far. It's certainly full coverage- not a "light" product. I have dry skin that is acne prone in a quarter sized spot on my chin. I do have to moisturize first (which we all should be doing, ladies!) and then apply this foundation. On me, it goes on like velvet. What I'm always amazed by is the wear time- I easily get 9 or 10 hours without needing powder or touch ups (again, I'm a drier skin girl). I feel like I look flawless with this on, and I have very light skin with dark scar splotches on my chin from previous acne lumps that I just couldn't keep my hands off of. As other gals mentioned, let it dry before applying blush or anything, but it dries very fast. I only took off one lippie because it dries so fast (I lightly wet my makeup sponge before adding the foundation to keep it moister longer). Otherwise, I love it- it's my HG foundation.
Cleansers -RoC - Microdermabrasion Exfoliating Disc [DISCONTINUED]

Meh. Not for me. Doesn't seem like they're doing much for me and it seems very wasteful.
