  • Maybelline New York Dream Matte Mousse

    I am on the constant quest for a perfect foundation. This one comes pretty close. I first used this foundation in high school and for some reason stopped using it, but I remembered how much I liked it when I saw my sister using it. The foundation gives full coverage and is excellent at covering blemishes too, so much so that a concealor isn't really necessary. It is matte, but not dully so, it's also not drying. It feels light on the face, and makes your skin look like it's been airbrushed.

  • Maybelline New York  Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Powder Foundation

    I've used Bare Minerals for a while, but I've tried a few other drugstore brands to see if I can find something comparable for less money. Maybelline's version is the worst so far. I would not recommend this foundation unless your skin is extremely oily, and even then I can't imagine you'd want to use it. The only word I can think of to describe it is chalky, thats exactly what it feels like. Like they took a peice of skintone-colored chalk, ground it up and packaged it. Perhaps that is a bit harsh, to be fair, this foundation did offer decent coverage, but it's not worth the chalky feeling. I would never recommend this foundation.

  • Maybelline New York Great Lash Washable Mascara

    Maybelline New York Great Lash Washable Mascara

    I personally love this mascara

    There's a reason I've always come back to this mascara. There are some people that hate it, and others who love it, I happen to love it. It's not super voluminizing, but I don't need much volume, so that's okay with me. The thing I really like about this mascara is that it's lengthening. While I admit, but lashes are already pretty long, this mascara seems to stretch them even longer. It's not incredibly moisturizing, but I don't find it to be drying either. While it's not a perfect mascara I haven't found anything that works better for me, especially for the price.

  • Revlon Custom Creations Foundation

    I recently bought this because it was majorly on sale. It's not exactly what I thought it would be but it's still a good foundation. The coverage is slightly matte and fairly sheer, although it is buildable if you apply a couple layers, and it has a very natural look. It wasn't overly moisturizing and not drying either, perfect for my skin type.

  • Olay Age Defying Classic Cleanser

    I love this cleanser. Unfortunately I've started using Retin-A and I simply can't use the two of them together as the Retin-A increases sensitivity, but it's a great cleanser otherwise. It provides gentle exfoliation everyday which was so effective I never needed a seperate exfoliator/scrub. It left my skin soft and supple, helped keep blackheads to a minimum, and never left my skin over-dryed.

  • Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture for Sensitive Skin

    Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture for Sensitive Skin

    Good moisturizer for dry, acne prone skin

    I've been using Retin-A micro to help with my recent development of acne, and it's made my sensitive skin more so. I've been searching for an oil-free moisturizer that won't exacerbate my acne, but will help with the dryness I'm experiencing from the Retin-A, and is gentle enough on my skin. This moisturizer seems to do the trick. It provides enough moisture to keep flakes and dry patches at bay, but doesn't leave my skin greasy. I wish it had SPF, but I can deal with this, as everything else is perfect.

    Amazing Cosmetics AmazingConcealer

    Great, but not Amazing

    I had read rave reviews about this concealor in several magazines, so naturally I had to try it. The light color matched my skin tone, which is naturally quite yellow, very well. This is a heavily pigmented concealor, you truly barely need anything at all, this tube will probably need to be tossed before I can use all of it. Because it has so much pigment you have to be careful to blend very well, but I find it does blend quite well. As for coverage, it does cover quite well, it makes red blemishes, scars, and undereye circles almost disappear. It also lasts quite well. Overall this is a great concealor, but I do believe there are concealors out there that will do the same thing, for less than half the price, so while I do really like this product, I will not be buying it again.

  • Revlon ColorStay Makeup for Combination/Oily Skin

    This foundation isn't anything to rave about, but it's not bad either. I will give Revlon credit for the quality and variety of colors, I found Buff to match my skin very well. If you're looking for a full coverage foundation, this is not it. I found the coverage to be pretty sheer, it looks nice, just not what I was looking for. As for lasting all day? Perhaps in cooler weather, but on a hot summer day, after sweating a little it didn't seem to hold up. Overall this foundation is okay, it has several good qualities, but like I said, it's just not what I was looking for.

  • Suave Professionals Healthy Curls Anti-Frizz Cream

    Suave Professionals Healthy Curls Anti-Frizz Cream

    Great product for a great price

    I picked up this product one night when I was on my way to my boyfriends house and realized I had forgotten to bring along any haircare products. Not wanting to spend a lot of money, knowing I had a bottle of an expensive professional product at home, I picked up this. The next day I ran this product through my hair and didnt stop to really look at myself until we were on our way to a movie. I was shocked to see that my natural curls were bouncy, well-defined and frizz free. This product is moisturizing and light, perfect for my incredibly dry, incredibly fine head of hair. I've since abandoned my over-priced professional product, for this. It works better, and I get much more product for about one tenth of the cost!
