My Personal Favorite Mascara.
Although I love the Lash Blast Fusion mascara, I will have to say that this one is probably my favorite. The formula doesn't clump, and stays on all day. What else do I really need to say? After I curl my lashes, I use about 2 coats on my naturally long lashes, and they look fine all day! I would reccomend this to anyone that needs a good mascara.

I've recently been on the look for a good powder, since it's warming up and cream foundation probably isn't my best bet anymore. So far, my favorite has been L'Oreal True Match Super Blendable Powder. This comes in as second compared to L'Oreal. Why? Yes, the color matches my porcelin skin tone very well, however it did not provide the amount of coverage I was expecting. I had to put on a fair amount to just cover up my redness, then had to reapply throughout the day to cover up more. The smell, although good, is very strong. It smells somewhat like my grandmas powders, which I don't want to smell like... I have drier combination skin, so I did not have problems with it sliding off. However, people with more oily skin might have this problem. Also, the coverage could be considered a little cakey for some. Talc is one of the first ingredients, and with fair skin, cakey looks pretty bad. I liked this powder well enough to finish using the compact before buying another, but I probably won't be repurchasing it again.

I bought this on a whimp on a recent vacation because silly me had forgotten my Vaseline, which I used on my really dry skin (it was winter). The clerk told me it was better than Vaseline, and had a plesent scent. After spending $ on it, I tried it. Opening the tin, I was plesently suprised to smell it, it smelled wonderful! Then---the lips. It smoothed and softened my dry, chapped lips, moiusturizing them. And it looked like a very subtle, pink gloss, which was beautiful with my fair skin. Overall, this is a fabulous product. No wonder why its been so popular all these years! I prefer the tin over the tube, just because it's easier to use other places with the tin. Will reccomend!

I found three bars of this on sale at Targeet, and decided to buy it because I had heard good things about it. It cleanses very well, and leaves your skin soft and smooth. It did dry out my skin a little bit, but nothing my CeraVe lotion couldn't handle. Overall, good product!

LOVE LOVE LOVE!
My favorite body wash is probably Dove White Soap. But when the warmer weather comes around, and my beloved Dove doesn't get my skin as clean as I would like, this soap is AMAZING. It cleans my skin, leaves it soft and smooth, and doesn't leave it dry at all! Several people on here comment on the smell. Yes, it is a little different than you would expect, but I kind of like it. Plus, my dad buys it in a HUGE bottle at Sam's, so it lasts forever. I love it! :)

Normally, I don't like liquid/creamy foundations because they dull my skin. I read about this foundation in a magazine, and since I was wanting to try a new foundation (I was using Loreal True Match Powder, which is awesome!) I decided to go ahead and try this. I fell in love the first time I used it! It's very creamy, and decently moisturizing which works great for my combo skin. For me, it lasted all day when I used a setting powder (BareMinerals Mineral Viel). The coverage is just right, along with the color (I'm very fair, I got the lightest shade). It made my uneven skin look amazing! And left it so soft! Also, it smells great, which I don't look for in makeup, but hey! It smells good! I would reccomend it for dryier, to combo skin because it does have the Olay serum in it that does moisturize. Probably not for oily skin, it would most likely slide off. Wonderful product overall!

Before my dermatologist gave me the cleanser I am using now, I bought this and was pretty impressed. As a huge fan of cream cleansers, this is without a doubt in my top 3 favorites. It cleaned my skin very well, without leaving it feeling dry. It also left my complexion smooth

In my first review, I rated this a 7. Now I want to rate it again to a 9. At first, I had the lemon drop with SPF 15. For some reason, it wasn't very moisturizing for me. But at Christmas, I received the summer fruit version as a stocking stuffer. I decided to give it another go! And I LOVE IT! I don't know why, but the summer fruit is soooo much more moisturizing! It really helps my lips, and leaves them soft. Plus the smell is fabulous! I think it was the SPF that was drying on my lips with the Lemon drop. So I will continue to use summer fruit, and enjoy this wonderful lip balm!

Fantastic Coverage! But not for my skin.
I bought this a few months back when I ran out of my Clinique Redness Solutions makeup. I just so happened to be attending a state speech tournament, the day after I bought it. The next day, I woke up very early, washed my face with Noxema, moisturized, and put on foundation. The coverage was beautiful! My uneven complection looked flawless! And when I went to compete, many other competitors complimented on my skin saying "Oh my gosh! You have the most beautiful skin I have ever seen!" and I had a judge write on a ballot, "flawless skin!" I was overjoyed! But then, after about 3 days, my face broke out in MASSIVE red, painful pimples. And the only thing I had changed in my routine was this. As soon as I stopped using this, my face very very very slowly began to clear up. It took about 3 months, but it finally healed. I still have the acne scars to prove it though. I keep hoping I can find another foundation with beautiful coverage like this one!!! But until I find one that doesn't break me out, I will keep looking!

It was the day of vacation. And of course, this is when my Bare Minerals Bisque runs out. We didn't have time to stop at a makeup store on the way, so I was forced to purchase some concelor from Wal-Mart. I ran in, took a brief glance at the Almay and Neutrogena walls, and grabbed this one. I'm glad I did! It covered acne well, matched my skin perfectly (and my skin is very hard to match), it stayed on all day, and didn't dry my skin out like sacilyic acid normally does. I will use this again when I run out of my regular!
