Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - Colour Caresse Shine Stain / Shine Caresse

The color doesn't really match the tube. I bought pink resistance and infinite fuchsia. I have OK pigmented lips and pink resistance is like a lip balm to me, doesn't give me any color. And infinite fuchsia is suppose to be pink, but on my lips it's like a reddish pink, which is not what I want! I have to say though that this is very moisturizing for my lips and its staying power is pretty good. Just remember to apply a few layers after waiting for a few minutes.
Love this color!!! It's a baby pink color but it looks super natural. Although its very pigmented, I find this very subtle and easy to use as a blush. This color is soooo pretty :) I definitely recommend it!!
Ehh... This is OK.. It is TOO red for a cream blush for me to use. I just can't find the right amount to use it on the face, but I will also use this as a lip color. The red isn't really natural for my skin tone. Even the slightest amount, I feel like I look like a doll with red cheeks... Just no..
I'm never disappointed with NYX blushes, and I love this color!! It is super pigmented so what I do is I dab the blush with my one ring finger only, and rub it against my other clean ring finger and apply. This color is so lovely!! Recommend!!
I love this blush! I would use this everyday if Ulta was around me. I have to say that this looks really good on medium to olive skin tones, and probably not so much for paler skin ladies. It's a rosey mauve color, which on my skin looks sun kissed and blushed. This color is my all time go to color, and it's super pigmented, a little goes a long way :)
Primer/ Corrector -MISSHA - Near Skin deep wrinkle filler

I got this as a sample and I have to say I hate it. It's basically Monistat's anti chafing gel. It goes on smooth and has a silky powery finish. I used it around my eyes, including my upper lids, and the second day I found that I have two little pimple growing!!! I just don't recommend people using this or thinking about purchasing it...

I hate this stuff.. Yeah it's smooth and all when you first apply it, but when you put the foundation or concealer on, it's just like "UGH!!!" I feel like wearing this weird powder/ rubbery thing on my face! I do not recommend using this as a primer. It's meant for intimate care so please just use it for that...
Scrubs -Boots - No 7 Total Renewal Micro-dermabrasion Exfoliator

The "Micro-dermabrasion" caught my eye because I need a scrub that has tiny beads in it. I wanted to purchase Clarasonic or PMD's micro dermabrasion device but it costs too much for me, so I went ahead and got this. The package says use once a week and I think it's accurate. The beads are so tiny but it really does gets into your skin. After usage my skin feels so nice and exfoliated. I used to have flakiness around my nose and now it's completely gone. It's easy to wash it off and doesn't leave any residue. It doesn't break me out and I think this is one of the best scrub I've ever tried yet.
Cleansers -Boots - Botanics Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm
therealiluvbmx 5/16/2013 3:46:00 PM
This stuff smells so good! Smells fresh and organic haha. I never used a cleansing balm or oil because I have combo skin and always thought I would break out from it. My whole life I only used makeup wipes because it's simply convenient. I gave this a try because it's organic and it wouldn't break me out. It did not 't break me out, it feels so good when you put it on and massage your face, it takes all my makeup off, and my skin feels so soft and clean. When you open it, the oil is solid and greenish color. All I do it scoop a little bit with my fingers and put it right on my face. The solid oil turns to liquid when you start massaging it to your face. It comes with a hot cloth and I think it's wonderful because it opens your pores and takes all the makeup off. The cloth is a teeny tiny bit rough so for me it's like removing my makeup plus exfoliating. I would definitely recommend this and repurchase it.
Loose Powders -E.L.F. - Studio High Definition Powder

I had high hopes for this powder but I hate it!!! It broke me out and leaves my skin looking white and dull. I hate it!
My HG foundation!!! I love love love this foundation! It's not a mousse or cream, it's like a pudding consistency. It goes on super smooth and stays on all day. It's a medium coverage foundation but definitely buildable without looking cakey. It's not oily at all, it's actually has a matte finish. I myself don't use liquid foundation at all because most of the time it shows lines and flaky skin :( and I've tried so many different ones they still don't look good on my skin. It is in a small package but only a little bit goes a long way. But this whipped foundation saved my life I would totally recommend this! Update*** Wow this stuff is amazing.. Even the hottest days out I don't need to blot my face... I have oily t-zones and the times that I don't use this foundation my face looks so oily after one hour not even exposing to the sun. Will up date again to see if this product breaks me out or not.
I rather buy Sally Hansen's lip plumper. This is irritating my lips and I can't kiss my boyfriend at all. It doesn't do anything to my lips it just makes it red because of the irritation. It doesn't worth the price and doesn't have any plumping effects at all. only good thing is that it smells good, that's all.
ugh, doesn't hold any curls at all.

Some general colors here, white, black and grey. Nothing special but I like it. I can use these three colors everyday and have no problem. If you are looking for something inexpensive and a dupe for mac this is definitely that you should try it out.
