I'm on my second tube of this. I really like it.

Pros:
-Provides lots of length
-Provides some volume
-Have not noticed any flaking or smearing

Cons:
-Seemed to dry up quicker than other mascaras
-NOT waterproof (I never buy waterproof makeup, but some "non-waterproof" versions still hold up very well). It will rub off if you have …

Moisturizers - Unlisted Brand - eb5 Intense Moisture Anti-Aging Cream

Currently on my 3rd or 4th pot of this stuff. I really love this cream. It doesn't irritate my skin in the least, quickly fixes any flakiness I get, doesn't break my skin out, and doesn't make my skin a greasy mess. Only bad thing is it comes in a pot which I don't love, but it's too thick of a cream to go in any other kind of container.

I have combination oily and acne prone skin. I bought this a few months ago, and I have had mixed results. I always use a little spot concealer under my eyes and on any blemishes before applying this foundation.

So I hate this foundation alone. I had been applying it with a flat-top buffing brush because that's how I apply all powder foundations. It would get cakey fast, would …

Pressed Powders - Maybelline New York - SuperStay Better Skin Skin-Transforming Powder

I have had a love-hate relationship with this powder. I can never decide how I feel about it. It actually has decent coverage to it so I sometimes buff it into my skin for a minimal makeup kind of day. If your skin is dry at all it will look horrible with this powder so moisturize well! But it can look very smooth and flawless as well.

This stuff smells weird. The smell kinda reminds me of bathroom cleaning products honestly. It works fine, I think. The packaging is great as you can twist the pump into the "locked" position. I will continue using this until I run out. Unsure if I will repurchase it or not.

Moisturizers - Garnier - Skin Active Clearly Brighter Spf 15 Moisturizer

I got a deluxe sample of this for free and I really like it. It is scented, however it doesn't linger and doesn't break my skin out. It absorbs very quickly into my skin and just feels smooth and soft - not greasy at all. I don't know if it truly does anything to brighten my skin but it is a nice daily moisturizer that I will continue to use.

Moisturizers - CeraVe - Facial Moisturizing Lotion - AM SPF 30

I like the PM version of this product so I bought the AM version because I needed spf. This stuff is gross. It is weirdly thick (especially if it is cold) and really difficult to rub into the skin. It tends to pil up which makes it look as if my skin is super dry and flaking off (it is just this moisturizer). So of course it looks terrible underneath makeup.

I picked up a sample of this from my Sephora. This is quite a thick bb cream and I would recommend using something other than your fingers to blend it (I use a blending sponge). It has nice coverage and looks smooth on the skin. It does sink into my laugh lines a bit throughout the day. Overall I do like it though, if the shade happens to suit you

Primer/ Corrector - Smashbox - Photo Finish Primer

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/03/2017

Got a sample of this in my Smashbox Studio Skin foundation box. Was excited to try it underneath the foundation because the foundation doesn't smooth over pores like I'd prefer. I didn't really feel that the primer did much of anything. My foundation didn't look any smoother on top, and it certainly didn't last any longer.

I got the black one from a friend as part of a gift. I haven't owned a regular black eyeliner in years (I always use eyeshadow or liquid eyeliner), and I was pleasantly surprised. It is extremely black and easy to use. It also stays on all day with zero smudging. Very happy with this and would buy another one if I ever run out.
