    Benefit Coralista

    Good blush

    I got a deluxe sample of this blush, I think, when I purchased something from benefit at Ulta. The blush didn't seem that big compared to the full-size, but I have yet to go and purchase the full size, despite the fact that I use this blush quite a lot. I have a medium skin tone, and this blush looks pretty nice on me. It takes a little more work for me to make the color show well, but it's worth it. This blush is in the same color family as the infamous NARS blush, whose name, is prohibited on this website. lol Coralista is pretty long lasting, I found that it wore throughout the day pretty well. I could still tell that it was on my cheeks at the end of the day. Overall a good blush, the only downside was the price. I don't necessarily know that I will purchase the full size once I finish this one, althought it's unlikely that I ever will.

  • CHI Nourish Intense Silk Bath

    I am slightly confused on what this product is supposed to be. It doesn't say whether it's a shampoo or just an extra step to add into your shower routine. I had read that a lot of people used in in place of shampoo, or would use this as well as little bit of their regular shampoo, so that's what I have been doing. I usually use regular shampoo, then go back with this for a very luxurious cleanse. This product lathers up nicely, and makes my hair feel quite soft and silky afterwards. After this, i use just the tiniest bit of conditioner, I find that I don't need too much after using this. I haven't noticed a huge difference in the overall health of my hair, but that might just be because I'm a swimmer, and nothing seems to cure my chlorine-damaged hair. >_> I usually use this twice or so a week, and I've found that the littlest bit of this goes a long way. The bottle that I've been using has been lasting me for a good couple of months already! Try checking Marshalls or TJMaxx if they have it for cheaper

  • Eucerin Skin Calming Daily Moisturizing Creme

    I love this moisturizer! I have no idea why this moisturizer is on Total Beauty's worst drugstore lotion list, because I definitely think that it's one of the best out there. I bought this at first solely for my face, because my skin is more sensitive towards fragranced products. I also swim, and after coming out of the chlorine, my skin tends to sting whenever I apply moisturizer. I thought this would work a lot better, and I definitely don't regret picking this up. It feels nice and very moisturizing and smooth on my skin, and it doesn't leave my skin irritated. It also sinks nicely into the skin without having to work it in too much. I loved it so much that I have begun to use it for my whole body, and it is a savior in the winter when my legs begin to get very dry and itchy! One bottle of this stuff lasts for quite a long time, especially if you get one of the larger bottles to get your money's worth. For $10, I think this is one of the best that's out there. I've picked this up time and time again over my bath and body works and hempz moisturizers. I especially go for this when my skin is irritated and can't handle fragranced lotions. I've also heard that this is excellent for those with eczema. I will continue to use this for years to come!

  • Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush

    I had heard many great things about this product, so I finally decided to fork over the money for this product as a splurge item. It is definitely worth it. I'm a blush junkie, and have tried out a good number of different blushes from all around, and this is one of my favorites. The one I own is in glisten, and I would definitely recommend this color, especially for the summertime. It is a light pink with gold shimmer, not unlike the infamous NARS blushes. The shimmer makes it unnecessary for a highlight, and makes your cheeks look glowy and slightly peachy in the sunlight. The 12 hour claim on this blush is also no joke. This blush goes on smooth, and lasts all day! By the end of the day, I can still see the blush as clearly as if I had just applied it. The color is also very pigmented and saturated, I only need a little tap into the blush with my brush, and I'm all set! I'm not one to buy too many of one product, especially if it's as expensive as the amazonian clay blushes, but I think I might just pick up another one very soon. I think "Frisky" and "Achiote" look like very nice colors that haven't been very much talked about! :) Would definitely recommend to anyone who asks about it! I think it's worth the money, and this one blush that I own has been lasting me for quite a long time already. The packaging is also very cute, which is definitely a bonus!

  • Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain

    I am in LOVE with these balm stains! I own them in only two colors, but I need to go out and get a few more as soon as possible. These definitely do stain my lips for a few hours, and I've noticed that the staining qualities work better if you apply the product directly on your lips. for example, if I applied this product on the bottom lip only and then spread it out onto my top lip by rubbing my lips together, I notice that the bottom lip is stained more than the top later. Maybe it's just me. lol. The balm stains feel nice, and they're not very drying, but I still apply a lip balm before I put these on. My favorite is Sweetheart, which is a bright pink, perfect for the upcoming summer. I think this one is a color that would match any skin tone. CVS always has these bogo 50% or they give you extrabucks for these. Very incredible prices :) They are slightly minty, but not overpowering, because I don't like mint, and they're fine for me. would definitely recommend!

  • Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner

    I am, without a doubt, one of the worst people in the world with liquid liner. Not only will it take me forever to do my liquid liner exactly right, but i have yet to do it without making a mistake first. I am very very inexperienced with liquid liner. But that said, these Stila eyeliners make it so very easy for me to do liquid liner! It takes me a lot less time with these, and I find that I can do a cat eye quite easily with these, without too many mistakes for someone as bad as I am with liquid liner (lol). Even when I'm doing my makeup with my friends, they've noticed how better i've gotten at liquid liner, and quicker as well. I would definitely recommend this liner for anyone who has trouble doing their eyeliner, because it makes it so easy! The pen form that this liquid liner is in helps make it easy, and the felt tip is sturdy enough not to wiggle too much, yet it has enough give so that you can make the shape that you want. The black one that I have is also the best, darkest black liner that I have ever tried. It also lasts.... ALL DAY. They're not kidding when they call it the "stay all day liquid eyeliner". I've worn it for many hours at a time, through clubbing and parties, and not a single smudge. I have yet to test its waterproof capabilities, but as it's going to be summer soon, I can't wait to test that out. If anyone has any trouble with the tip drying out or the liquid liner not reaching the tip, just give it a good shake or two, and it should come out just fine. I've had this liner for a few months now, and it's still not dried out, which is great! I might actually run out of this liner first before it's able to dry out! I would definitely buy this again, it's definitely worth the splurge!

  • Lancome Dual Finish Versatile Powder Makeup

    I don't allow myself very much money for makeup, and after a lot of research, this is one of the few expensive things I have ever allowed myself to buy. But it is definitely worth it. This product is very versatile, as you can apply it dry with a brush, or you can apply this with a damp sponge for a more flawless, full coverage finish. I prefer to use it in its powder form, as I don't like to deal with the damp sponge too often, unless I am going out. But this powder makeup gives excellent coverage!! I only need the tiniest bit of concealer along with this to give me a great everyday look. I've also been using this for quite a while and it looks like i've barely put a dent in it. This powder is great at controlling my oiliness throughout the day and keeps me looking very matte. When I'm not as lazy to do my makeup and I actually use a damp sponge with this product, I find that I sometimes don't even need concealer (definite plus!) . Another thing I noticed about this powder was that it didn't leave much bulidup or cake up on my face. A lot of times with powders, if I accidently rub my face during the day, I find that a lot of the product comes off on my fingers . But not this! It left my skin quite smooth and free of any buildup. Also, while I was buying this, I also noticed that there was a great variety of shades, so if you have trouble finding your shade, I would definitely recommend checking out this product!

  • Benefit The Porefessional

    Benefit The Porefessional

    Where'd all my pores go??

    I cannot say enough good things about this product from Benefit. At first I was pretty skeptical, as I have rather large , noticeable pores around my nose area, but after using this, my pores had noticeably shrunken. Not only does it hide/shrink my pores very well, it also creates a smooth canvas to put on the rest of my makeup. It works great as a face primer, although I have heard people say that that's NOT what it's for. The only downside to this product would have to be, of course, the price. But with this, you are paying for quality, and a little bit of this goes a long way! I use less than a dime sized amount for my entire face. You can definitely notice how smooth your face feels after you put this on. I would definitely recommend this, it is a great product!

  • EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm
    10.0

    EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm

    Nice and Smooth

    This product is one of my most favorite lip balms in the entire world. ever. I have tried everything from softlips, blistex, carmex, chapstick, and burt's bees. Although all of those were pretty good, I found that none of them held my interest very long. I got tired of them easily, and coupled with the fact that they all came in small little tubes, they got lost very easily. Not this one!! The EOS lip balms are very hydrating and moisturizing on your lips, and they go on very smooth. One of the things i like best about these is the fact that they don't make your lips peel AT ALL. I had a problem with those with other lip balms, especially the softlips brand, but these were like heaven in the shape of an egg. Next, they have an amazing smell and taste! I have tried the summer fruit one ( my favorite!), as well as the honeydew and the strawberry sorbet one, and all of them smell absolutely delicious. The last thing that made me give this product a 10/10 is the fact that I can't seem to lose these lip balms. Because they're shaped like an egg rather than a small, slender little tube that can get lost anywhere, I haven't lost a single one of these lip balms, and I've been using them for a really long time now. To me, that makes buying them a whole lot worth it, because it'll mean that I can actually (gasp!) finish up a lip balm before I lose it! This product is overall excellent and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone!! Here's a secret: I've found a pack of 5 of these at costco for a mere $10.99!

  • Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh

    Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh

    spring in a bottle

    I love love love this perfume! It's very floral and just slightly sweet, but it's not overpoweringly floral, as some floral scents can be. It's the perfect springtime scent. I find that it doesn't last all day on my skin, which is the downside, but it does last a pretty good amount of time. It's also one of the more inexpensive perfumes, possibly because it's a more light scent. I would definitely recommend for the spring and summer! :)
