  • Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush Lip Gloss

    I'm pretty sure almost everyone loves these lip glosses, as practically every girl I know has a nice collection of different Victoria's Secret lip glosses. I like these as well; they come in pretty colors and smell really nice, however they tend to be very sticky and unpleasant if you are going to kiss someone. The price tag is about average for the actual quality of the lip gloss, but this is a great product for anyone starting out in makeup or wanting a convenient go-to lip gloss for everyday wear.

  • Victoria's Secret Secret Garden Collection Hydrating Body Lotion

    The Victoria's Secret Secret Garden Collection Hydrating Body Lotions are amazing! As a dedicated Victoria's Secret junkie, I own many of their body care products (I usually stock up on the six for $30 deal that you can get year-round) as the scents are delicious and the price is unbelievably low! The body mists, shampoos, body gels, and lotions are all fragrant and long-lasting if you layer the scents. The quality of the lotion itself is very hydrating, and if you layer the scents with the body mists, they last all day! My favorites are Love Spell (obviously), Pure Seduction, Vanilla Lace, and Amber Romance (smells very strong, all you need is a little bit!) The Victoria's Secret body care products also make great gifts, and you can pick something up for you're at it :) I definitely recommend these lotions to anyone looking for an inexpensive, very moisturizing body lotion that will leave your skin looking and feeling awesome!

  • NYX Cosmetics NYX Lip Gloss with Mega Shine

    The NYX High-Shine Lip Glosses are AMAZING, an absolutely wonderful buy for such a low price. I am very impressed with the quality of these glosses- very shiny but also very pigmented, creating an overall gorgeous look. The lip glosses also have a delightful, feminine scent, like a very sweet cherry soda-esque fragrance. They come in a variety of colors and textures, ranging from sheer to sparkly, and can be worn for a number of occasions, from school, to parties, to everyday errands. I have bought three of the NYX high shine lip glosses so far in the shades Smokey Look, Chandelier, and Cosmo, but I am planning on purchasing quite a few more to keep in my locker, purse, car, etc., and the very low $6 price tag makes it very possible. The overall quality and value of the NYX glosses are fantastic- they are better than some of the $30 lip glosses I have purchased from higher-end, department store brands. DEFINITELY try these lip glosses out!

  • Maybelline New York Great Lash Washable Mascara

    Maybelline Great Lash is a nice, reliable mascara that is great for creating a natural eye makeup look. The mascara's formulation is mediocre at best, and perhaps even a little too wet to create perfect lashes. The mascara is great for applying to your bottom lashes since the brush is so small, but can also be a pain since the brush often smears your other eye makeup. The mascara's overall lasting power is not good; by mid-afternoon I have unsightly black rings under my eyes from the mascara. Since it is washable, it tends to smudge even easier than a normal mascara. Great Lash isn't ALL bad, however, as it still does create a nice, natural look and makes your lashes look full, without too much clumping. Although it is not the BEST, I would still suggest this mascara for anyone starting out in makeup, looking for an inexpensive, everyday mascara, or looking to add to a makeup collection.

  • Smashbox Cosmetics Hyperlash Mascara

    The Smashbox Hyperlash Mascara is absolutely wonderful. It's consistency is wet but not TOO wet, and goes on perfectly even, without causing too much clumping or smearing. The mascara wand is also great, small and sleek, with a 'hidden' comb on the side. For a perfect application, apply two coats of the mascara to your eyelashes, and then use the comb side of the brush to comb through your lashes, and create even, long, full lashes. My only con is that this mascara seems to flake pretty easily throughout the day, and I will sometimes find black flakes from the mascara under my eyes. Overall, however, it has a relatively good lasting power. I have received many compliments on my lashes from this mascara, and have even been asked whether I was wearing false lashes (which I wasn't!) This mascara is really nice, but if you are going to spend $19 on a mascara, go with Smashbox Full Exposure- it makes your eyelashes look naturally full, long, and beautiful, without the usual clumpiness of mascara. Still, check out Hyperlash, as it will not disappoint.

  • Burt's Bees Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil

    This lip balm is absolutely phenomenal; after you use Burt's Bees you never go back! I usually use the Burt's Bees Beeswax lip balm, but decided to go out on a limb and purchase this one- and I sure am happy I did! This lip balm is like the original Burt's Bees but better, since in addition to the great moisturizing and soothing qualities, it also has a subtley sweet taste. It leaves your lips feeling smooth, sweet and completely amazing! Definitely buy, and well worth the price.

  • CoverGirl Clean Liquid Makeup, Oil Control

    I like, but am not in love with, the CoverGirl Clean Liquid Makeup. It definitely does the job of covering blemishes, but the promised oil-control factor just isn't the best. I don't have excessively oily skin, but I feel like this foundation only works to the full extent if you exfoliate beforehand and set it with the matching powder, the Covergirl Oil Control pressed powder, both of which only last for about two hours before you are oily again. However, I do really like the consistency of this formula, as it is thick but does not feel extremely heavy or overbearing. It works well if you continue to set it with powder throughout the day, and also does a good job of concealing redness, blackheads, zits, etc. Overall, I think this is a great buy since it is relatively good quality, and beats other foundations in even higher price ranges.

  • The Body Shop Vanilla Spice Home Fragrance Oil

    This home fragrance oil from the body shop smells great, and makes your whole house smell warm and inviting. The scent is not too overbearing, and best of all, the product is vey affordable and reasonably priced. 9 stars!
