Benefit's Watt's Up illuminator/highighter
I absolutely love Benefit products, especially their highlighters for cheeks and face. I recently received this a mini of this with a mini of "theyre real" mascara from Sephora, as that is their birthday gift this year to Beauty Insiders-it's free to sign up, and every year they give you a birthday gift for free--so sign up for that one. Now, I had seen the full size of the Watt's Up when it first came out and I have been curious about it ever since but I didn't want to spend 30 dollars on it if I didn't like it, so this was a great way to try it out. I already had multiples of the mini-mascara's and I could always use another one, so I liked that about it too. The first time I used it I put it on over my blush on the tops of my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose. I was disappointed at first because I couldn't see it on my skin color, after I went into better light in another room and also looked at it in natural sunlight I couldn't believe it! It's a really nice champagne color that compliments nicely without being overbearing, it just looks like you are glowing. I prefer lighter/pale skintones so I am always wearing a shade of foundation a little too light so I usually also use more of a pinkish highlighter but I really love this one. I will say it seems like a lot of Benefits face makeup like foundations/powders/highlighters seem to be for skintones with a yellow undertone so most things from them work perfect for me, but thats just my experience, they could be wonderful on the paler skintones(which I think are beautiful anyway!) I recommend getting a sample of this for free(which you can do at Sephora) to see if you like it or not before buying a full size of this.

Avon 3-in-1 sharpener
This is hands down the best eye/lip pencil sharpener on the market! I have had the one I am using now for about 2 years and I want to go ahead and order another one for a "just in case". I have had other sharpeners eat and destroy my makeup pencils and it can be stressful because some of the pencils were very expensive. I know now, just to use this one and I wont have any problems. For the firt while that I had mine, I wasn't sure why it was a "3-in-1" but then I read some reviews on it and theres a little adapter that you take off the big hole and it makes it a different size! So it really does sharpen 3 different sizes of pencils which is so handy for me because I have been using a lot of the big chunky eyeshadow pencils and some of the big lip pencils and this sharpener sharpens them all perfect-each time- without eating any part or wasting any of my makeup. I recommend this sharpener for all the non-self sharpening pencils out there!

I am a big time Avon fan. I like a lot of their products, especially the eyeliners, such as this one: their glimmersticks line. I have bought this over the years and have never been disappointed. I always like to have my basic black, but they also have glimmersticks diamonds line( it has added sparkle to the color of your eyeliner) and I like to have a black one of that as well. This is one of those eyeliners I even like to have in multiple colors, in my makeup bag right now, I have an emerald shade, and two purple shades along with my basic black. I love that the colors are very pigmented and shows up good with my skin color. They also seem to blend well with my skin type- I have drier skin so I always like moisturizing formulas of everything. The only thing I have noticed that is not perfect is if it's an extremely hot day(which we have been having lately) and I been sweating I will need to clean up my bottom eyeliner and smooth it out, which I think is the case for every eyeliner out there(at least for me) but what's good is the line on my top lid stays put no matter what, even with heavy sweating/heat and it stayed put even before I wore an eye primer! I definitely recommend thi eyeliner, you can try out several colors and they are usually on sale or have a good price!

Benefit's awesome Porefessional!
This is one of all time favorite products, a now must-have in my makeup bag! I have been using this for about 2 years now and the way I use it is after cleansing my face, exfoliating and moisturizing I put this on before applying my foundation and powder and my makeup looks so much better and smoother. The great thing about it too, is that if you need touch-ups throughout the day it's safe to put on already applied makeup and will not mess up your makeup. It really does help at covering pores up too! I have noticeable ones around the cheeks and nose area (at least to myself, which I think we all see them even if others don't) and just putting this on makes me feel more confident and prettier. Some people could definitely get away with just wearing this product without a need for a foundation or powder if you have decent skin. They even advertise on the Benefit website that this product is for men as well, because they might have pores to cover up too! Benefit usually has 3 packs of deluxe sample kits with this item in it or a combination kit with this if you wanted to try several products for the price of this one alone, which is how I usually buy it. The consistency of the product is great, it's kind of like a powdery nude lotion and sinks right into your skin with no caking, flaking or any weirdness of any kind! I highly recommend this product as either a primer for your foundation, to touch up throughout the day or just wear it alone and see what you think!

Tarte Brightening Primer
I recently got to try this primer, I got it in a 3-pack from Sephora which contained this, a poreless primer and an eyeshadow primer. They were travel size but it was a good deal to get 3 products I had never tried. Out of all 3 products, this was my favorite product. I have drier skin and it seemed to work with my makeup better than the poreless one did. I haven't bought the full tube yet, but I may try to get another 3-pack of the primers if they are available!
