    C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve

    One of the Best!

    This product has been around for ages and there is a reason why. It WORKS! I love this stuff, it glides on so well, its not heavy, doesnt feel greasy or icky, and it smells fantastic! I especially love the rose scent and the strawberry which is my favorite. You can even rub this on your elbows and knees to soothe dry skin. Great great great product and for the price, you cant go wrong.

  • Blistex Lip Balm

    Blistex Lip Balm

    Not the best but great for the price

    This lip balm has a nice minty feel to it thats really soothing on the lips and good for dry or cracked lips. Its really smooth and glides on nice. However, it doesnt work well under lipstick. Since it is so smooth it causes too much slip for lipstick to really adhere so your lipstick comes out all clumped.I would use this more as a night treatment instead of for the day.

  • Garnier Fructis Anti-Dandruff Clean & Fresh Shampoo

    Sadly to say that this did not get rid of dandruff at all.. I was so excited to see that Garnier came out with this because they usually have great products. When I used it, it made my dandruff even worse. I tried it for about a week thinking that maybe it needed time to create any results but it just didnt do anything. I have a half full bottle sitting in my shower =( It does smell good though so thats a plus.

  • Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle Deeeeep Conditioner

    I have really long hair that goes down to my butt and needless to say, my ends were getting really really damaged and my hair just felt coarse and dry. This thing works WONDERS! I left it on for a little longer than 3 minutes just so I knew I was getting it all in there and it made my hair feel so soft and smooth, no frizz, and just healthy all around! And for the price, you just cant beat that!

  • M.A.C. Fluidline

    M.A.C. Fluidline

    Awesome cream liner as well as a base for eyeshadow

    The fluidlines I think are one of MAC's most diverse products to use. They can be applied as an eyeliner or used as a great eyeshadow base, which is what I usually use it for. Blacktrack is great for creating a smoky eye. I would recommend setting it with eyeshadow though, whether your using it as an eyeliner or a base because it could smudge or crease if you have oilier skin, which I do. They can dry out fast so be sure to put the lid back on tightly after every use.

  • Avon SKIN SO SOFT Fresh & Smooth Facial Hair Removal Cream

    The first few times I used this it left a red mark above my upper lip, but I have sensitive skin so it was probably just me. Its simple to use and has the perfect applicator on the tip to apply the product without getting your hands and fingers all gooey. Doesnt smell very good but what hair remover does? Its also fast, you only have to leave it on a few minutes and then wipe away with a damp washcloth. The only problem I had was that it doesnt keep hair away for very long so you need to use it probably once a week. Waxing would be a better alternative for longer hair removal but I cant stand the pain and redness of wax so this is a great alternative.

  • Mark marc Expandable Red Cosmetics Case

    The brush holder on the top is convenient but only holds travel sized brushes, great to pair with Marks 5 piece travel brush set. The case itself is just one big case, no dividers or anything so your products get all jumbled up. I like having dividers to keep organized so this case didnt do it for me. Its not small enough to carry around in your purse but could be good for travel. I have the one with glitter on it and the glitter is just so messy it flakes off all the time and creates a mess =(

  • mark Foundation Brush

    Great product for the price. But, for me it is too thick for foundation. I like thinner foundation brushes just because foundation can spread easily if you are using a liquid formula and it creates a more sutle coverage and its easier to blend. This brush can cause streaking so be sure to prep skin thoroughly and with a primer before applying foundation. I have been using this brush for about a year now and the end part of the brush is starting to come loose so I am afraid it might just break soon =(

  • mark Glow Xpert Face Shimmer

    I have only recently started liking this product just because for one, I was really hesitant to have that much shimmer on my face, and two I didnt know where to apply it. I found that it really creates a nice all over glow when you mix it with your regular foundation or tinted moisturizer. It makes for a subtle glow thats is not too shimmery and wont make you look oily. I dont like the sponge tip applicator so I put it on a metal palette first and then use a brush to apply it on spots where I feel I need a little glow. Great product for the price as Mark and Avon products always are affordable. I think I have the Champagne color which is great for any skintone.

  • mark Go With The Pro mark Brush Mini Kit

    These brushes are good for someone who is just beginning to use makeup. The only one I didnt particularly care for was the powder brush. It tends to shed and is a bit too stiff for me. The other brushes are good for the price, who can beat the price right?! Plus they come in a travel size so its great for when you travel or to keep in your purse for touchups throughout the day. For me, I think brushes are something to invest in because they should last a long time and brushes can really make a difference when applying makeup. If you want great quality brushes, try MAC, Smashbox or Nars.
