Here are all my reviews:
  • N.Y.C. New York Color Automatic Eyeliner

    The price seemed right, but the product was very wrong. If you're looking for a product for your water line, this is not it. The makeup itself is waxy and doesn't show up well on the 1st swipe of the pencil. In fact, I had to really press for the liner to show up on my upper lid. One of the reasons why I'm giving it 3 stars is because the colors are pretty when they finally do show up. That and, since I can't bring them back, I can use them as an eyeshadow base.

    Stila Stila Sun SPF 15

    My Contour go-to!

    I echo many sentiments when I say that I'm so glad that this is a matte bronzer. I pop my contouring brush in the compact and sweep under my cheekbones and jawbone. I use a bigger, fluffy brush if I want that all-over glow. Stila is and always has been my favorite brand. Summer's coming up, so watch out for sales! Products like this bronzer are kind of expensive on their own, but are often included in gift sets.

  • Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Correcting Powder

    This is my new go-to powder. It's great for individuals with fair skin. It buffs out any redness and helps to over blemishes. I use this with Hard Candy's Sheer Envy Tinted Moisturizer and it leaves a flawless finish. The included brush is soft and pliable, but only really works for touch-ups. I use a kabuki brush to apply the product to my face.

  • Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Loose Powder

    I was in a drugstore and I snagged this for 50% off! I think it's normally priced around US $12, but I really couldn't tell you for sure. This powder is so soft and sheer, but it offers wonderful coverage due to the minerals. It lasts for most of the day and feels great on my skin. I have 2 qualms and they are both due to packaging. The brush is stuff and rigid, so be prepared to bust out a kabuki or your other powder brush. I also found myself beating the container upside down to get the powder through the "filter". I have since popped it off and used it to tap off the excess powder from my brush. *quick tip* You can use the brush that comes in the packaging to exfoliate. When I wash my face, I work the suds around with this brush. The result: Smooth skin.

  • Hard Candy Sheer Envy Tinted Moisturizer

    I have to say this is the best tinted moisturizer that I have used. It glides right on the skin and offers buildable coverage. Once set, it feels like you have nothing on your skin. I find that it's the perfect substitute for days where I really don't want to wear a traditional foundation (hot / humid days, "good skin" days). After I add a little concealer where I need it, I finish it off with Physician's Formula Correcting Powder. The result is a flawless look on not-so flawless skin. I have to touch up a little during the day, but really isn't a big deal to me. The price is definitely right! I think I bought this for US $8 at Wal-Mart. The quality for the price is also right...a little can go a long way! The only complaint that I have is that if this product gets too near my eyes, they sting and water like crazy, which it kind of counterproductive to the makeup process. So, if you have sensitive eyes, beware! I have to say, though, that the pros definitely outweigh the cons...so I'm really careful around my eyes.

  • Betsey Johnson Spray Perfume

    Betsey Johnson Spray Perfume

    One to keep on my shelf

    The fragrance is stong at first, but lightens as the day wears on. It is sweet, feminine smell and I always receive compliments when I wear it. Note to users: Some fragrance sites have unused TESTERS for sale at half off! I thought it was a plus, because it was a bigger bottle that came without the obnoxious cap.

  • Dior Hypnotic Poison Eau de Toilette

    I have used this fracrance for the past 10 years and I never fail to get a compliment each time I wear it. It's spicy, floral, sweet with just a hint of musk. A couple of spritzes goes a long way, as the scent can be kind of strong. I couldn't think of a better date night perfume!

  • Stila One Step Makeup
    10.0

    Stila One Step Makeup

    Hands down, the best foundation that I have ever used!

    Stila One Step Foundation is a primer, concealer and foundation all in one. Even a moisturizer isn't necessary. The quality of the product is simply amazing. Its silky texture glides right onto the skin, immediately conceals blemishes and flaws and evens out tone and texture. One Step Makeup offers buildable coverage, so you can use as much or as little as you want. It lasts all day (and night) long. My skin is left smooth and soft...even during these harsh winter months. One Step Makeup will run you about $45 a pop, but if you stretch that out over a few months, it's really no more than you would spend on drugstore foundation.

  • Hard Candy Sheer Envy Cosmetic Primer

    Hard Candy Sheer Envy Cosmetic Primer

    Great product for the price

    This isn't the best primer that I have tried, but it definitely does the job. It's a little too greasy for my liking, but it glides on smoothly and dries quickly. As the previous review stated, a little goes a long way. My makeup looks fresh all day long and for US $8, you can't really go wrong!
