    Tarte Natural Cheek Stain

    Love this product! (but make sure you get it on sale)

    I have 2 Tarte cheek stains (dollface and blissful). Dollface works really well on my fair skin, Blissful is a little trickier since it's very orangey-red, but I make it work. They are a dream to blend, either by applying directly or onto a brush, and they last all day. I probably wouldn't recommend this to someone with oily skin because it leaves a dewy sheen that might not be beneficial. I only gave it an 8 because they're so expensive. If you want one, make sure you wait for a really good sale and/or free shipping code.

  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

    This top coat is amazing because it seriously dries in just a couple minutes. And once it's dry, it hardens the nail up so there's no smudging. I only have 2 complaints: the smell (it's like that glue that comes with model airplane kits--ick!!), and it isn't the best at keeping my manicure chip free. My nails usually only last 3 days tops, which isn't a big deal because I like to change things up, but that might not be good enough for other ladies.

  • MAC Nail Lacquer
    7.0

    MAC Nail Lacquer

    Gorgeous colors...but $12?

    I only have one MAC nail polish (concubine) and it's a gorgeous deep shimmery red. Application is smooth; not to thick or thin. The brush is a little small but easy to work with. I only gave it a 7 because it's a lil pricey! I don't like the idea of spending more than $10 on a nail polish when there are so many cheaper options! But oh well I'm a sucker for MAC!

  • MAC Cremesheen Glass

    I have this product in "partial to pink" and it's just a pale, milky pink--gorgeous! Works really well over any nude or light pink lipstick for that pale lip look (which is what I do a lot because I normally wear lots of eye makeup). Mine isn't shimmery or glittery like lots of other MAC glosses, which is a nice change. It's also not as sticky-syrupy either, so it's very comfortable on the lips. Another great MAC product!!

  • The Body Shop White Musk Eau de Parfum
    10.0

    The Body Shop White Musk Eau de Parfum

    One of my favorite scents

    This scent smells sooo good! It's sexy and musky but not overpowering. It reminds me a tiny bit of moonlight path from bath and body works, except not as strong (hope that's helpful lol). This spray doesn't quite last all day-which I thought it would since it's eau de parfum! But that's ok because I use the white musk lotion as well so the scent lingers longer. I would highly recommend this to anyone who likes feminine musky scents.

  • Aussie Aussome Volume Shampoo
    10.0

    Aussie Aussome Volume Shampoo

    Really good shampoo for its price :)

    If you need a good volumizing shampoo that cleanses hair thoroughly, this is it. It cleans the gunk out of my hair, and rinses clean. A nice side effect is the smell too; I've gotten compliments that my hair smells good since I started using this! And it was only $3 at Target!

  • Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief

    Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief

    Love BUT wish they would change the packaging!

    This moisturizer is very silky and creamy and is fun to apply! I only use it at night and when I wake up my skin is sooo smooth! I think it would work for anyone with combo skin or dry skin. For those who are super dry, it might not give them enough moisture. Having said that....I hate the packaging! Everyone should beware of jar packaging because it A) doesn't keep the product clean since you have to dip your fingers in it every time you use it, and B) it kills the ingredients! You can have the best product on earth with the best ingredients like antioxidants, but it won't do you any good in a jar because when they are exposed to light and air they lose their quality! I hope Clinique changes the packaging for this product because I love it! Put it in a squeeze tube or something!

  • MAC Powder Blush
    8.0

    MAC Powder Blush

    color selection is amazing!

    This product is like any high quality blush. It's pigmented without depositing so much color I look like a clown, so coverage is buildable. The powder is smooth and applies with minimal effort (with the right brush of course), and lastly the colors! When I look at the blush display at my MAC store it's like I fall into a trance. So many shades, natural and vibrant! A color for every skin tone! I could probably buy all of them and love each one!!

  • Olay Quench Plus Touch of Sun Body Lotion

    My favorite thing about this gradual tanning lotion is the scent. We all know about how nasty some self tanners smell! This scent is light, pleasant, and not overpowering. But that's the only thing that stood out to me. It takes a long time to dry (not good when I'm short on time!) and the color isn't the most natural looking on me. The color it gives is quite yellow, so I'm guessing this will work the best for people with strong yellow undertones. I'm quite pale with cool undertones, so it didn't look natural. Lots of pros/cons with this product, and it will work for some people and not others.

  • Pantene Pro-V Smooth Conditioner

    This conditioner moisturizes my long color-treated hair and leaves it silky and shiny. When I use this shampoo/conditioner together, my hair is almost always frizz-free and manageable. For a drugstore price this product works wonders!
