  • bareMinerals 100% Natural Lipgloss

    This is a very hydrating lip product with an unbelievable texture. This product's long lasting power is very similar to a lipstick (3-4 hours), yet the texture is so creamy (like a thick liquid lipstick) that it's not like anything else out there in the beauty market right now. This product has an insatiable shine to it, and the colors are all very pigmented, that a little product does go a long way! The applicator wand is firm yet flexible enough to contour your lips which applies an even coat of application. You can purchase the Bare Escentuals Minerals Pretty Amazing Lip Color at Sephora for $16, which is on the high end price tag for a lip product, however Sephora has a lot of holiday deals right now, and that's where I picked mine up. It came in a package with a mineral blush, a blush brush, and this lip color all for $10. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to try something different other than the typical lipstick or standard lip-gloss.

  • Rimmel London Fix & Perfect Pro Primer

    Rimmel London Fix & Perfect Pro Primer

    Awesome for drugstore primer

    his is a very affordable drugstore primer that works as well as some other higher end primers. It is priced at $7.49 for a 1fl oz bottle. The product does last a long time considering your only need a little bit at a time. Fix & Perfect claims to be a skin perfecting primer; it is evident that it does just that because when applied it does smooth out and even out your face for easier and a more even makeup application. The product has a orange color to it, but once applied and blended into the face, the color fades away. Fix and Perfect primer does make your foundation stay on longer, and it fades away any shine that might be on your face. This product works well on any skin type, whether dry, oily or combination. It is definitely gentle enough for sensitive skin, since that is a big concern when using primers! It glides on fairly well and quickly even with the driest spots; yet doesn't make your face shiny or greasy at all! The product does have a floral scent to it which might be bothersome for some people, however if scents don't bother you then I would highly recommend this product over a few higher priced primers that work equally the same.

  • ChapStick Ultra-Smooth

    ChapStick Ultra-Smooth

    Not bad, packaging is ok

    I came across a product called ChapStick Ultra Smooth at my local Dollar Tree which sort of surprised me. The reason why I say that is because I am very familiar with the brand ChapStick which normally comes in a regular lip product tube (picture above); however this product came in a jar… I picked up the “Nourish” and “Soothe” jars not really knowing what to expect only going off of a brand which I really enjoyed in my youth. The Soothe (green) product actually has a minty smell and flavor but not the typical “medicated” minty taste, but rather it reminds me very much of a candy cane scent & flavor! The Nourish (purple) product has a vanilla scent and flavor, although the scent is very minimal unlike the minty one. The textures of both products are very similar to the regular ChapStick tube, very smooth, silky, and very soft on the lips. It is not sticky at all, unlike some other similar products out there, it actually absorbs immediately into the lips, leaving a very soft feeling behind! I can’t tell the difference between what the Nourish and Soothe is actually supposed to do to my lips, the only “physical difference besides the color is that the Soothe is a bit softer in texture making a tab bit easier to apply vs. the Nourish is a bit harder like soft wax. I did some investigating online and I really like the ingredients in both products: The Soothe has antioxidants, vitamin E, Aloe, & Chamomile. The Nourish has vitamin A, grapeseed oil, pomegranate oil, in addition to antioxidants and vitamin E. he products actually come in 4 different formulas, aside from the Soothe and Nourish, ChapStick Ultra Smooth also comes in Rejuvenate (yellow/peach) which has vitamin D, Antioxidants, vitamin E and pumpkin seed oil, as well as Fortify (red) which contains antioxidants Q10, vitamin E, & cranberry seed oil. They retail at about $3.99 online and Walgreens, you may luck out like I did and find them at your local Dollar Tree!

  • Wet n Wild Eyeliner and Eyebrow Pencil

    I’ve tried many different brands of eyeliner out there from Sephora brand, to CoverGirl, to Almay, and NYC; and I continuously go back to my WnW eyeliner. This product has so many pros, the most important for me is that it glides on super easily and it is very gentle on the eyelid & lower lash line. I’ve tried some eyeliners that are of a “harder” consistency which actually pulls on the eyelids when you’re applying the liner; but Wnw Coloricon eyeliner can be applied effortlessly without any tugging! I’ve also been very impressed throughout the years of using this liner that it does not smear or smudge simply because it dries fairly quickly (which is definitely a plus). n addition, this eyeliner can be easily removed with face wash/makeup remover; this is so important because you don’t want to keep tugging and rubbing your eye area since it is such a sensitive area! As you can see there are so many pros, really the only con is that this particular color (#651 Black Black) is always sold out…this is why I end up buying 3-4 at a time – and at only $.99 per liner it is super affordable!

  • Vaseline Intensive Rescue Healing Hand Fragrance Free Hand Cream

    The lotion is creamy and you only need a tiny bit to lather it onto different areas of your body. The lotion is fast drying and leaves your skin so smooth it is quite unbelievable. What I love about it is that after using this lotion, my skin felt so refreshed, it just feels like I have brand new skin! During this winter season, my skin has been so incredibly dry that this lotion has been helping moisturize my dry skin not only for the moment but actually helping with dry skin in general! BONUS: It's very affordable!

  • Vaseline Petroleum Jelly Original

    I do also like using the Vaseline Petroleum Jelly (original) on my lips especially during the winter season, my lips get crazy dry and chapped! I usually apply this product at night time, because it is a gel which means it's very shiny, so I find that it restores smoothness on my lips over night better than throughout the day!

  • Olay Regenerist Intensive Repair Treatment

    I've been trying this product for a few months every night, and although I did not see any changes to my fine lines and wrinkles (i have minimal since I am still fairly young) I did like that it moisturized and soften my skin. I do not think that within the few months that I've tried it that it did what it claims to offer, but I would like to continue to use this product as a preventative measure for future wrinkles. I have somewhat sensitive skin and this did not break me out or cause any rash, which is awesome! The texture is not like any other wrinkle cream, which normally would be sort of thick, but this product was a bit liquidy (I guess it depends on preference but I prefer thicker creams). Overall I did like how it made my skin feel soft and moisturized, and I will continue to use it to see if I can see any changes down the line but also to prevent any further fine lines. I give it a 5 because I do like the product but I don't think within a few months it actually does what it claims.

  • REMBRANDT® INTENSE STAIN™ Stain Dissolving Strips

    I saw a little bit of improvement after using these strips, if you are expecting super white bright then this is not the product for you. However if you just need a bit of natural looking white teeth then definitely give it a try. The process was a little awkward because I've never used anything like it, it didn't dissolve all the way for me, I did need to brush/rinse a bit away. Overall I think I will try this again and hopefully will keep seeing improvement.

  • L'Oreal Paris EverStyle Alcohol-Free Volume Root Lifting Spray

    I didn't know what to expect when I tried this product but I am absolutely amazed! This product not only gave me a subtle amount of volume, it also made my hair look slightly wavy and yet soft looking all at the same time -- with a bit of styling! It smells really good, i really can't get over the pleasant smell. In addition it did not make my hair feel sticky at all like some other products I've used! I love it!!!

    E.L.F. Clarifying Pressed Powder

    I love ELF products

    At first I bought this in a shade too dark,,,and my face looks horrible. Finally I tried a shade lighter and now I am hooked on this stuff. A bit of this powder and it takes away shine, it sets liquid foundation, and it gave my face a smooth flawless skin look. I will continue to purchase this product...and it's only a dollar! I did a review on my blog about this and other ELF products: http:glitzglambudget.blogspot.com
