Here are all my reviews:
  • bareMinerals Prime Time Brightening Foundation Primer

    I've tried several primers, and they all tend to either be too shimmery or to slough away after a couple of hours. This one makes my makeup look smooth and even all day long. It doesn't make me break out, and it keeps makeup from settling into my large pores. I love to use it if I know I've got a long day ahead of me, or before a big night out for smooth, flawless skin.

  • Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 45

    great product at a great price. However, my skin is very acne prone so even this can be a little too slick for me. Also, if I wear powder makeup over it, this can sometimes cause it to slough off. I am a nut about sunscreen though, so I use Clinique city block SPF 40 on my face and this on my neck, decollete, and arms. I also use this on my face if I'm going, say to the beach or the pool. Great protection!

  • Rusk Internal Restructure Thick Body and Texture Amplifier

    This really has simplified my morning routine. I spray it in damp hair and then blow-dry, without having to brush, scrunch or style as I dry. That leaves my fine hair with some texture, body and a natural slightly wavy look. It's never sticky or crunchy as I find some mousses to be. I can also get more defined waves if just twist hair into a bun for a bit after it's dry. Gorgeous!

    the best part of their acne kit

    I got this as a part of their acne kit and I love it! It's not too greasy but really hydrating. Their entire acne regimen didn't really clear my skin, but I would probably keep using this moisturizer with a different cleanser/treatment.

  • Origins High Potency Night-A-Mins Mineral-Enriched Moisture Cream

    I give this product a neutral review because I almost bought it until I realized that it contains valerian, which I am allergic to. After using another skin product with valerian, I ended up in the hospital with hives and swollen lips and eyelids. I just want to recommend that everyone read labels before using a product, and if it contains an herb that you're unfamiliar with, test a little patch on your arm or somewhere inobtrusive.

    Stila Smudge Pots

    My HG eyeliner?

    I luurve this eyeliner! It is one of the only ones I've ever liked enough to buy in multiple colors. You can apply it with a small stiff brush for a really clean precise look. At night, smudge a little matching powder shadow over the top, or if you're feeling a bit rock 'n roll, you can actually apply the smudge pots with my pinkie for a really sooty look. You do have to be very careful to screw the top on tightly every time! I learned this the hard way when I left a jar open all day and came home to find it near impossible to use. I bought another jar, though, and for over 7 months now haven't had any problems with it drying. Also, it is a bit more time-consuming to apply then a pencil, but the long wear is worth it!

    Lancome Absolue Eye Premium Bx

    Maybe if I was going out clubbing...

    I got this free as a gift with purchse. The texture is really nice and moisturizing, but I can't get over the shimmer! It is noticeably iridescent, and left me looking like I had brushed a little shimmer powder under my eyes. I think I'll just keep using it at night until it's used up

  • L'Oreal Paris True Match Naturale Mineral Foundation

    I love that this has a matte finish (Bare Escentuals' shimmer looks awful on me) and the price is great. It toned down shine a lot. I work out on my lunch break, and after washing my face post-workout, I apply this to look fresh and pulled together again. It can accentuate large pores if you use too much, however.

  • Benefit Silky Finish Lipstick

    is one of my favorite lip colors - such a pretty, creamy plum with a great finish. To me, it's staying power is about average, and I'd much rather reapply this a couple of times a day than wear one of those all-day lipcolors that dry out your lips.

    easy to use

    The only eye pencil I will ever buy. I usually use a gel/cream liner, but this in Teddy (dark brown with a bit of bronze sheen) is what I use when I am in a hurry. It goes on quickly and smoothly, and is still (almost) all there at the end of the day.
