  • Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean Splash Away Foaming Cleanser

    Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean Splash Away Foaming Cleanser is my go to for when I'm in a hurry and just want to clean up as quick as possible. It works especially well for those days when you're not wearing makeup or have on mineral makeup, it's not as effective at cleaning if you have on long wear makeup unless you use a washcloth, which negates the whole point of being splash away. Now if you do use a cloth, it'll get you squeaky clean, but I like that I can just splash some water on my face and be done. it rinses off extremely easily and doesn't leave a residue. This is also a favorite for starting my skin out in the morning to get off my sleep funk.

  • Estee Lauder Take It Away Total Makeup Remover

    Estee Lauder Take It Away Total Makeup Remover

    gets even waterproof makeup, but is drying

    Estee Lauder Take It Away Total Makeup Remover really does 'take it away' and using a toner afterwards never seems to reveal anything left behind. I MUST use a toner afterwards to balance out my skin PH though or it's super drying. It works excellent at removing makeup, but the skin does feel stripped. I do love this stuff for getting off warpaint but I don't like to use this everyday.

  • Lancome Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover

    This stuff is da bomb. Worth it's weight in gold and a major time saver since a few good swipes and you're done and clean as a whistle. It removes waterproof mascara, glitter liner, heavily applied smoky eyes- you name it, no problem. If I've used a heavy hand that day, I'll use a separate cotton pad for each eye and give a final swipe to see clean pad and know I got everything. It glides away your makeup and dirt leaving your eye area feeling soft with no tugging or pulling. This is my go to eye makeup remover. "• A bi-phase liquid eye makeup remover. The lipid phase lifts off eye makeup; the water phase contains special emolients to refresh and condition skin without a greasy residue"

  • Korres Cherry Lip Gloss
    8.0

    Korres Cherry Lip Gloss

    makes me feel like a little girl- in a good way!

    It's got good pigment and is super duper glossy. It doesn't feel gunky, which is pretty unusual for something this high shine, and it smells like cherry candy! Seriously, I actually like to pull the applicator out of the tube just to sniff it. It reminds me of a cherry Jolly Rancher. Bonne Bell eat your heart out.

  • Korres Lip Butter
    10.0

    Korres Lip Butter

    All natural, well made, incredibly astounding products.

    The Wild Rose Lip Butter gives lips a dee-lovely beestung pout and tint and makes people want to smack you! Not ow, pow smack but pucker up and smoochie smack ;-) It comes in a tub a bit larger than a Carmex tub, and will last you for eons. It melts right into the skin and provides long lasting moisture- great for chapped lips and a heck of a lot sexier than Carmex! Just don't loan it to your man unless he's into that sort of thing, cause it's quite tinted and leaves a rosy stain on the lips. $10 MAY SEEM LIKE A LOT FOR A BALM, BUT SERIOUSLY, THIS WILL LAST YOU EONS. I let a male friend of mine borrow this when we were camping and he fell in love with it; he threatened to sneak it out of my bag when I wasn't looking! he's Phillipino so he has dark lips and this looked really good on him :-)

  • Wet n Wild Wild Shine Lipstick

    Wet n Wild Wild Shine Lipstick

    good grades for health and enviroment

    Wet n Wild Wild Shine in Honey Shine is a great peachy nude that with a nude lipliner gives a sortof glossy modern Bardot look. Alone it is more useful as a gloss and you definitely want to play it up with some smoky eyes so you don't look washed out (though I would think on someone with dark skin this would look gorgeous all by itself.) With the smoky eye and the lipliner, some pulled back or up hair- well you're smokin'! I was surprised to discover that at least this particular line of Wet N Wild gets good grades for health and enviromental impact according to goodguide . It's your good 'ol drugstore fall back, but can't be beat for the price.

  • Laura Geller Lip Strip
    10.0

    Laura Geller Lip Strip

    makes your lipstick look SO much better!

    The first thing before glopping some gloop on your kisser is to make sure your lips don't have scraggly flakes and peels to make you look like you have leprosy of the mouth. For that purpose, I love using Laura Geller Lip Strip Cooling Sugar Scrub, which is a sweet and cooling lip scrub that removes dead and chapped skin while also being soothing and hydrating. It tastes great, is quick and easy to use, and a little goes a long way. I have a this one jar that I've been using for months and I can tell I'll be able to get many many months more out of it.

  • Pink Beauty Luscious Lipshimmer Lipstick

    Pink Beauty Luscious Lipshimmer Lipstick

    Subtle shimmer and gorgeous packaging

    Pink Beauty Lipshimmer in Rosaline is for when you want a little something extra but nothing too obvious. It's extremely sheer with a hint of shimmer and a subtle vanilla scent. Pink Beauty Cosmetics is a Canadian company and they have awesome packaging. The tube is a work of art in and of itself and makes you look like you bring home the bacon when you pull it out. If you want to oomph up the volume, use a lip liner to fill the lips and put this over it for all day shimmer.

  • Estee Lauder Beautiful Sheer Eau de Parfum Spray

    Beautiful by Estee Lauder is a very grown-up fragrance. I think if someone under the age of 25 tried to wear it, it'd smell freaky. According to the company: PRODUCT DETAILS The fragrance of a thousand flowers. A tender bouquet of Lilies and Roses, Marigold and Orange Blossoms...all warmed with a rich, woody base and brightened with a touch of citrus. Romantic, tender, memorable. Fragrance Type: Floral Top Notes Rose Lily Tuberose Marigold Mandarin Middle Notes Orange Flower Muguet Jasmine Ylang-Ylang Base Notes Sandalwood Vetiver Amber For me, I prefer the dry down of the middle and base notes, the top notes are a bit cloying for me, which is odd since I've read a ton of reviews from people referring to this as a "light" scent and I find it to be just the opposite. I actually prefer to put this on a good hour or two before I'm going to be smelled, cause I do so love the dry down on this over the top notes. To me the top notes feel a bit dated, kinda 80's in that power suit with Reeboks kinda way. It's almost like 2 different perfumes.

  • Bath & Body Works Signature Collection Volumizing Shampoo

    I'm sure there's many other things that could be said about these, but all I care about is how these smell and how they make my hair smell. Bath & Body Works Coconut Lime Verbena Volumizing Shampoo & Conditioner smell soooooo good and they leave that amazing crisp clean smell behind in a subtle way for hours. The scent isn't so pervasive that it overwhelms, but just enough that it makes me keep grabbing chunks of my hair and inhaling deeply. I would not recommend using this stuff at night since the super sharp tang is like a slap in the face of wake-the-heck-up. Oh yeah, it also makes your hair really soft and thick feeling. I guess that's supposed to be the main point of volumizing hair care, but again, all I really care about is the smell :-)
