I struggled with finding a good red for a long time but I love this one. I need a yellow/golden toned red and I just love this shade! It stays on well, the color is incredibly vibrant and well... rich, and I always get compliments on it when I wear it. My lips stay moisturized when I wear it too. I'm not much for lipstick, but I really do love this. I'd buy this color and brand again. I bought a few department store brand reds at the same time and I like this formula much more for less cost.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Eden

This is the best eyeshadow primer I've used. My shadows look full and bright. They never crease either. At the end of the day, even after a long night, my eyeshadow looks as good as it did when I first put it on. A little does go a long way and I find that, unlike sin, this creates a nice, flat base (color wise) for the shadow. I'll never use anything else.
Styling Products -Bumble & Bumble - Thickening Spray

I have fairly thin hair and have tried several thickening products but this is the only one I've noticed actually works and makes a visible difference. I use it when my hair is damp. It works well both with air drying and a blowdryer, but I find the best results come from a blowdryer. It's a bit on the pricey side for my taste, but I've yet to find something that works better for me that is as available as this product. Treseme root lifter is cheaper and works for my hair too, but I can barely ever find it in a store and it does not give me as much volume as this spray. It can, at times (mostly when letting my hair air dry), make my hair a bit puffy and kind of 80's hair band looking but I also have naturally wavy hair.
After a long departure from using this product, I sprung for it when I had a little extra cash. I don't know how I went so long without it. It can make your hair look and feel a little greasy if you use too much, and for me, I need to use it on damp hair but nothing I've tried so far makes my hair feel softer and look shinier. I like that it's readily available at most drug stores too. A little does go a long way, so price wise, I find it worth it for that alone because it lasts. My hair tends to get oily at the root, so I always start with the ends (damp hair as I said before) and then go to the root. After using it for two days already, I've received many compliments on how much nicer and shinier my hair looks. Love this stuff! A must have product in your arsenal!
Treatments (Eye) -Burt's Bees - Radiance Eye Cream with Royal Jelly

After reading a few reviews on here I decided to try this product because it seemed best for its price. I love it. During my first few uses, it stung under my eyes a tiny bit but I've definitely noticed a decrease in puffiness. The lines under my eyes aren't as visible and my concealer doesn't crease and leave that annoying line anymore. I use it twice a day, in the morning and at night, on a clean face and it's been working wonders. I did stop for a day or so due to being on vacation and, maybe it's just paranoia, but I felt like they puffed again a little... so I would recommend using this consistently, but that can be said about anything. If you're looking for something convenient to find, that works, this is a good product.
