  • MAC Charged Water/Revitalizing Energy

    The thing I love most about this product is how versatile it is. I use it about three times a day, once before makeup, at least once throughout the day to freshen up my make up, and at night to moisturize. A big misconception I have heard from some people is that they use this as a finishing spray. This is NOT a finishing spray, this is just something to freshen up your make up throughout the day and to apply moisture. I have combo skin and this is seriously so refreshing to apply and gives me plenty of moisture but doesn’t make me crazy oily. It also leaves my skin with a nice dewy look that doesn’t make my skin appear oily. It is amazing for flying because the high altitude can wreak havoc on my skin. My favorite use for this product though is to use it with my MAC pigments so for amazing color and durability. I apply it to my eye shadow brush then dip it into the pigment pot and apply to my eyes to vibrant color. I was suggested this product when I went to MAC and wanted more MAC Fix + and was advised to try this out. It is very similar to MAC Fix + but I am still not totally sold that it is better than it. The fragrance isn’t bad but I’m not totally in love with it and I actually prefer Fix +’s neutral smell to this. I do like the packaging more than Fix +, I think the glitter in the bottle is fun. I would suggest that people try both MAC Fix + and this product to see which they like more. I think I am liking MAC Fix + more but they are so similar that I am not dissatisfied at all with this product.

  • Kiehl's Blue Herbal Gel Cleanser

    I am still new to using this product but so far I have been pretty impressed. I have been using this product in conjunction with the blue astringent herbal lotion, moisturizer and at night I use this with my clarisonic. Before I bought my clarisonic I had been using Proactiv for 10 years and loved it but was noticing that I was plateauing off. I have been only using this for about a month but so far I have been impressed. When I first started to use it I was a little shocked because it feels cool, minty, and tingly on my face. Over time you become accustomed to this feeling and it is no longer a sock. I have a few recommendations though, make sure not to use too much because you only need a little for this to work at its best so using too much will only make your face dry and waste the product. Also, make sure it doesn’t get into your eyes because it can sting.

  • Kiehl's Blue Astringent Herbal Lotion

    I have to preface this by saying that I have only been using this product for about a month but as of right now I am not disappointed by this product. I don’t have cystic acne or severe acne but I do have acne problems, especially white heads and I feel that my skin is hardly ever completely clear. I had been using Proactiv for almost 10 years and bought a Clarisonic and decided to get a new cleansing program. I think this toner has been working pretty well. I have combo skin and it is VERY drying, like within seconds my face feels tight and I need to immediately apply moisturizer. I have noticed though, if I only put a dime size amount on my cotton square it seems to not make my face feel as tight. I wouldn’t be put off by the tightness and as long as I use moisturizer my face has not been producing extra oil to offset the drying effect.

  • Urban Decay Naked Palette

    Urban Decay Naked Palette

    Staple for every woman

    Love this palette. It offers amazing colors that have little fall out and are blendable that are perfect for everyday use or for a special occasion. The colors are seriously gorgeous and make me feel gorgeous when I put them on. I also love the inclusion of the potion primer which is seriously a God send. I advise everyone in getting this palette. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 is because I have a warm complexion and sometimes I feel that some of the cooler colors don't look as fabulous on me as they do on people with cooler tones.

  • MAC Pigment
    10.0

    MAC Pigment

    Truly Amazing

    I absolutely love how vibrant these pigments are. I have a couple colors and my two favorites are naked and tan, they are both takes on neutral colors with an extra pop. Tan also looks amazing on both my mom and sister and we all three have different eye colors and skin tones. Be aware that these do have fall out but something that I do to combat this is to spray my brush first with MAC Fix + then dip it into the pigment and apply. Using this also makes the color more vibrant. I would say if you are using it as blush do not apply the Fix +, I tried it once to see how it would look and it was seriously scary, just stick to dry for blush. Some people might get turned off by the price but it seriously lasts forever. In a years time I wasn't even close to a quarter of the way done.

  • Clarisonic Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing System

    This is totally worth the price. It has made my face softer, clearer and cleaner. I just have a few helpful tips. It is totally normal to break out for about the first month because it is deep cleaning and bringing out all of your impurities, believe it or not but your break outs in this case are actually a good thing! Also, you need to experiment with brush heads and how often you use your clarisonic. I use mine 5 to 6 times a week at night and I mostly use the acne brush with 1-2 times a week I use the deep pore cleaning brush to minimize my oil, pores, and black heads. Also, I had to experiment around with different cleansers to use with this. But honestly this is an amazing product and a necessity now in my life.
