Foundations -Too Faced -Born This Way Foundation

I have normal skin and this foundation is wonderful! This is the first time I have ever bought a medium coverage, I usually go with light. It makes your skin look so smooth and healthy with a satin finish. It lasts all day with me but I do use a setting spray. I have used a lot of different foundations department store and drug store and they all work well but this is the first time I have
received so many compliments with people saying "your skin looks so smooth".

Tinted Moisturizer -Charlotte Tilbury -Unisex Healthy Glow: Hydrating Summer Tint Moisturizer

A hybrid product which, like Origins VitaZing, Soap and Glory's Glow Job and The Body Shop's All-in-One BB Cream, switches from a grey cream with micro-pigments to a bronzer that can fill in for foundation (which I hate, anyhow). Unlike the VitaZing (which has a gorgeous, cedar-like, citrusy scent), this smells REPULSIVE, like school glue. That being said, the effects are more "refined" (for want of a better word) and longer lasting than the other products I have listed. On first application, one's skin looks a bit "boiled", but the tint settles into a pleasing, healthy glow. Am working my way through a sample of this stuff--a wee jar lasts for a very long time, so I'll give extra points for the fact that you only need a small amount. I intend to get the full size eventually. Am a bit cheesed off that there is no SPF. That, plus the pong, has resulted in the docking of a lippie.


Conditioner -Organix -Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner

I bought the shampoo, conditioner & "deep conditioning treatment." My hair has never been more dried out! I was very disappointed. The only positive to the product I can think of is that it smelled nice.


Cleansers -Neutrogena -Hydro Boost Whipped Foam Cleanser

Not sure what Neutrogena was thinking with this one. There is no added benefit to adding fragrance to a skin product. Better off using Clean & Clear or Cetaphil. I will not purchase.

Polishes -China Glaze -Frostbite

What a gorgeous color Frostbite is! My daughter picked this out and I couldn't stop admiring it on her, so I had to borrow it! This color looks pretty much the same as it was captured in the picture on this page- but it's even better in person. It's actually pretty distracting on my nails... lol...because I keep stopping to admire the pretty color. As for application, it went on like a dream for me! A little thin on the first coat, but the 2nd coat evened it out and made it truly opaque. If you like blue polish, this is a must-have from China Glaze!


Shampoo -L'Occitane -Repairing Shampoo (Dry & Damaged Hair)

I have thick, wavy, shoulder length, medium texture hair and I love how this shampoo makes my hair feel after I wash and blow dry it.
It feels soft and silky, the powdery scent goes to the background and I feel good when my hair turns out well after a wash. I'm surprised to see the reviews that say this product dried their hair out. I do find that the Lemon Verbena shampoo can do this, but quite the opposite with Aromachologie Repairing shampoo. Just goes to prove that what is good for one might not be for another. I'm a scent-sitive person as well but the light fragrance in this does not get to me. I've ordered enough to last a couple of years.


Concealers -Essence -Cover Stick

foto


I'm not gonna lie, I purchased this because it was the cheapest concealer at the store ($2.99 at Meijer). I don't use a ton of concealer, because I don't have bad dark circles, and the occasional blemishes I get are usually small. I prefer stick concealers, because of how quick and convenient they are to use, and this one is no better or worse than other drugstore stick concealers. I just swipe a bit under my eyes and dab over blemishes, blend out with my fingertip and I'm done in no time. I am pale with neutral undertones (NC15), and the lightest shade "01 Matt Sand" is an exact color match, but would not work for anyone paler. The formula has a lot of slip, and some might find a bit greasy, but it covers well and blends easily. I always set my face with a bit of translucent powder, which helps lock it in place. For a low price, it gets the job done, and I will continue to use it!

Just tried a sample .Will most DEFINITELY purchase! It LASTS ALL DAY- KEPT its fragrance! Not a lot of expensive perfumes do this & I've purchased some expensive perfumes. I was looking for something new. To be honest, I'm still looking, but THIS is on my "going to buy" list! Love it! (P.S.-dont care about price b/c you sometimes get what you pay for, & dont know about packaging, as I just tried a sample) I only gave 3 on each, but it wasnt fair since I havent purchased as of yet, but fully intend to.I truly love this perfume!

Mascara -E.L.F. -Volumizing and Defining Mascara

foto

I am giving this 4 lippies, because I only paid $1 for it at Target. Mine is the newer black tube, not the white one pictured above, fyi. This is a good everyday mascara, not bad at all, but not AMAZING either. This makes lashes a nice deep black, and adds a decent amount of volume and length. I like wetter formulas like this, because they tend to not dry out as quickly in the tube. I have not had any flaking or smudging, and it does not irritate my sensitive eyes. I like the slim, pipe-cleaner style wand, which is easy to work with. I would def. go back and buy more backup tubes, but I snagged the last one! Would repurchase!
