I'm a total sucker for cute packaging so when I saw this at Ulta I had to get it. This isn't terrible but it isn't great either. My lips are extremely dry, left over from a course of Accutane several years ago. This just doesn't cut it for me, especially during the winter. It also breaks me out in little blackheads around my lips (gross, I know). What I really like about it is …Read more

Styling Products - Aussie - Instant Freeze spray

The name says it all. You spray this on and your hair will not move. It dries within a couple seconds. I'm the process of growing my bangs out so they are an awkward length and I am able to keep them brushed back when my hair is up with no bobby pins if I use this. They even stayed through the middle of a windy storm. It also works very well for those annoying flyaway hairs I get along my …Read more

Lip Treatments - Vaseline - Lip Therapy - Rosy Lips

This isn't sold anywhere in the U.S. to the best of my knowledge but I was able to get mine on Amazon. It's really, really nice. It's very similar to rosebud salve but I actually prefer this. My lips are really dark naturally and this actually manages to tint them a little more pink. Not many tinted balms can do that. It's more moisturizing than regular Vaseline because it has …Read more

I've had this since it first came out. I stopped wearing it for years and recently found it in the depths of my enormous collection of beauty products. I am once again enamored. For those of you who remember the gorgeous ads with SJP in a pink dress-- that's the perfect description of Lovely. It's soft, feminine, and just makes me feel pretty. I will have a bottle of this around …Read more

These are one of my favorite drugstore finds. I have 3 of them (Black, Mink Brown, and Taupe) and I love them all. They apply smoothly (absolutely no tugging) and have good staying power. I actually use Taupe as an eyebrow pencil and it works well for my ash blonde hair. They are $1 each and you can often find them BOGO 50% so they are a total bargain. I am planning to get the rest of the colors …Read more

I have tried many, many hair products for my fine, straight, and highlighted blonde hair. My hair doesn't have too many issues besides lack of volume. This is soooo amazing for my hair. I don't use conditioner in the shower and spray this on after instead, wait a few minutes, then comb my hair. My hair is soft and shiny and not weighed down at all! I never would have thought my favorite …Read more

Blush - Sally Hansen - Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy

This is for the powder blush in Poppy.

This is what I wanted NARS Orgasm to be. Poppy is a beautiful peachy pink with slight golden shimmer--it just makes me look glowy and pretty, whereas Orgasm looked glittery and emphasized my pores. This is quite pigmented and finely milled so it blends easily. It lasts all day on me, no touchups needed. I suggest getting this, especially since …

Wow! This stuff covers EVERYTHING. I don't have much acne anymore but I have some dark red marks left from a bad breakout a while ago. A teeny tiny little dot of this covers it completely and it really blends into my skin. I also use this on my dark circles and someone said I looked "well-rested" the first time I used this, which is certainly a first. Be warned, it can get cakey if …Read more

I have really dry, itchy skin and I knew it was only going to get worse once winter came. I found a 12 pack of this at Sam's for $6 a couple months ago so I bought it. LOVE IT. My skin hasn't been itchy even though it is freezing and windy where I live. Normally my skin is tight and dry when I get out of the shower but it feels great now. I still use lotion twice a day but with the help …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Full 'N Soft Waterproof Mascara

This is a great mascara---it has become my favorite. The name says it all--it makes my lashes thick and gorgeous, but it feels like nothing on my lashes. I tried the non-waterproof version and hated it but the waterproof one is awesome. It gives me a lot of volume, decent length, and holds my curl (my biggest issue). I even got my mom hooked on it.
Note: I normally use extra virgin olive oil …
