Not my favorite mascara, but definitely an okay one. It volumizes relatively well. I hate the bendy brush though. It seems like it's hard to get product on the lashes because the brush bends so easily. If I were in a pinch I would use this mascara, but it's not a favorite.
I was excited about the large brush on this mascara, but unfortunately it didn't do anything for me. The formula was pretty dry and it didn't volumize all that much. Not worth the high end price tag.
Cleansers -Philosophy - Purity Made Simple (Real Purity Cleanser)

For what it is, I think this cleanser is overpriced. It's very nice and gentle, but Burt's Bees makes a cleanser very similar that actually foams a little better. It's worth a try, but I wouldn't repurchase this cleanser because it's a little underwhelming.
My favorite scrub! It's pretty abrasive so I don't scrub too hard, but it really sloughs off the dead skin and makes my makeup go on so easily. And I love the smell.
I don't wear this powder on its own because I don't feel like it provides the coverage that I want, but I love how it looks over a BB cream or foundation. The effect that these powders give is so flawless. I love to use these instead of a normal setting powder. Plus, these feel so much lighter and less powdery than some pressed powders. The only complaint I have is that the one I've tried is the loose version, which was messy, but they do make these in pressed versions now. Overall, this is a nice product.
I'm on the fence about this mascara. It's wonderful at giving lashes volume and the waterproof version doesn't smudge at all. Unfortunately, it's extremely wet. I've had one tube for going on 6 months and it is still extremely wet. I'm waiting for it to try out more to see if it will be better. I couldn't use it without my lashes clumping together for the first month because it was so wet.
One of my favorite foundations. I love wearing this in the summer because it's light and mattifying. It evens out my skin without looking like I'm wearing foundation. I prefer this over tinted moisturizers because it keeps the shine away better.
I don't like the feel of this lip balm on its own, but it works great under lipstick. It's a more dry lip balm and you can definitely feel the wax in it. Because of this it sticks to the lips and doesn't make them shiny. But if you're looking for a good balm to prime lips for color, this is definitely a good balm.
I wouldn't recommend this if you have even the slightest sensitive skin. It burns like crazy. It tightens pores well, but I could only use it once because of the burn.
First off, I hate how large this tube is. It's hard to store because it takes up so much room. The mascara itself isn't bad, but it's not a shining star. The brush is large, but doesn't offer much volume. Honestly, it's an okay mascara and since it's cheap it doesn't hurt to try, but it's not the best.
One of my favorite foundations. Amazing coverage and it really is colorSTAY. The only problem I have with it is that it doesn't have a pump, but I use this with a beauty blender so I usually just pour it straight onto the sponge. I will continue to purchase this foundation.
I thought this was over hyped until I tried it. It's totally worth the money and looks so flattering. Even though it's shimmery it is a very natural flush.

I prefer the consistency of this primer to some of the other ones on the market. It seems to keep my eyelids dry longer than others. It's expensive but worth the price. It lasts a long time and you only need a little bit.

This is an amazing brush! I find that other foundation brushes are too big to get into the contours of my face, but this isn't an issue with this brush. It's also a nice shape for using liquid highlighter on the cheekbones or cream contouring products. Definitely worth the purchase!
Blush -E.L.F. - Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder

For the price, this is an amazing product. I can't say I like the bronzing side as it is wayyy too deep for my skintone, but the blush is very pretty. For $3 I would repurchase it and never touch the bronzer side and still be happy.
