I'm so upset with this purchase it's not even funny. This was a blind buy online, based on the fact that 1. I love Dr. Brandt's Pores No More Refiner Primer (original formula) and 2. I have dry skin so I look for things that are illuminating.

There are a number of things seriously wrong with this product:

- It is not the same formula or texture as the …

I have this in Exotic, which can look either like a brownish burgundy or a burgundy plum, depending on your lip color and skin tone. It's a beautiful color, is affordable and cruelty free, has a fantastic wand and is highly pigmented.

The problem is that it makes my lips stick together like glue. O_O I literally have to wait for them to peel apart when I open my mouth …

I have a couple of these in Creme Brulee and Angel Food Cake. Creme Brulee is a very sheer nude while the AFC is a medium-toned mauve pink that is ever-so-slightly more opaque.

They're a little sticky but still much better than a lot of glosses on the market, and they're also quite moisturizing. I notice I don't have to exfoliate my lips as often when I wear these …

Lipstick - MILANI - Color Statement Lipstick (All Colors)

I have two of these in Nude Creme and Matte Kiss. The Nude Creme isn't "nude" anything on my lips- it's straight up baby pink. This is fine, but was a letdown as it wasn't what I expected or wanted. The Matte Kiss is red, and is highly pigmented but a little on the dry side.

Overall, they're decent quality but not exactly consistent from one lipstick to …

What a hidden drugstore gem! This is a staple in my arsenal of nude cosmetics. It stays in my bag no matter what.

I choose this cheapie but goodie over a lot of other nudes because it's a flattering shade without being too noticeable, is office-friendly, and is pretty long-wearing due to its drier formula.

It is kind of drying, but it could be a lot worse. Fingers …

Lip Gloss - L'Oreal Paris - Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick by Color Riche - Nude Ballet 601

Feb/15/2018

This is probably the most universally flattering nude gloss on the market. It's sheer but buildable to a point, has a fantastic applicator, and it's packaged so that it's purse friendly and has a clear center so you know how much you have left.

It's a little pink, a little peach, a little nude, and has just a touch of brown to round it out. It's simple but …

Gels/ Soaps - Palmer's - Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing Body Wash

Feb/15/2018

ITA with the other reviewer who said it's almost perfect but it needs to lather more. It feels great, it smells great, and it's moisturizing. It would be without any flaws if it felt creamy enough to suds up more.

It's not a deal breaker, but it does prevent this from becoming a staple. It does smell like the beach (yay!), is moisturizing and gentle, plus you can get it …

Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - DG Beauty Cocoa Butter Body Oil Gel

Feb/15/2018

This product is amazing, and for around $3 it's really affordable. It's Dollar General's store brand called DG, and is their version of Vaseline's Cocoa Body Gel Oil (around $7).

The formula is gel-like, but is mixed with body oil so it feels luxurious going on the skin. The best part is that you get all the benefits of a body oil without the sheer mess. It does …

HG alert!

I love everything about this product, from the way the container is shaped (you can easily get every last bit) to how effective it is at moisturizing and helping with stretch marks.

It's perfect for traveling, has a pleasant light smell (like the beach), and wastes no time revitalizing your skin. The formula looks like vaseline, but feels like a cross …

This formula is great for people with normal to dry skin. Steer clear if you've got oily lids because you will probably look like a raccoon in a matter of hours.

It's a wet mascara and lengthens beautifully. It doesn't add much volume but it could be worse. The best part about it is that it feels lightweight and holds a curl.

Overall, it's not a …
