  • Benefit The Porefessional

    I got this as a sample from total beauty and I have honestly never used a primer, so this stuff was amazing to me! It really does cover up pores so well. I put this on, then apply my usual liquid foundation and the pores were gone As if I didnt have any! It applies so smoothly and Its a nude color, you can't see it or even feel it on. The only downfall is the price!

  • Trish McEvoy Eye Base Essentials

    I really love this! I got it as a sample from total beauty and I'm glad I did. It's smooth, creamy and light. It really helps my eyeshadows last and prevents them from creasing. This has a nice slight shimmer so even when I'm going for a natural look and am not planning on wearing eyeshadow, I can just put some of this on and it's subtle and brightens up my eyes.

  • Perlier Shea Butter Hand Cream

    Perlier Shea Butter Hand Cream

    Wonderful hand cream!

    Now that the cold weather is back, so are my dry hands and I am so glad that I got this sample from total beauty. This stuff is great, it's smooth and so moisterizing. A little goes a long way with this and my hands will stay moisturized the whole day. It also leaves no greasy feeling on my hands, which is something I hate about some hand creams. I have always loved Shea butter it definitely works wonders for the skin. Once I finish this sample size I will be purchasing the full size :)

  • Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

    I got this as a sample from total beauty and I really liked it. There was little clumping, it gave nice length and volume to my lashes, and surprisingly did a great job at holding the curl in my lashes. The brush is not the best at seperating, so I had to comb through them with another brush afterwards. It has also given me no problems with flaking or smudging. Unfortunately I'm not really into buying high end mascaras, so although it's a pretty good mascara I wouldn't repurchase just because of the price. But for someone who prefers to buy high ends mascaras, I definitely recommend it :)

  • St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Scrub

    I have previously used Neutrogena products to help control my break outs, and while they did decrease them, they didn't stop them. Especially around that time of the month when I normally break out the most, it seemed like nothing would stop them at that time. At first I was content with the other products but I decided to look for something better that may be more affective for me. I actually decided to get this because of the reviews, its natural and affordable. I gotta say I am really impressed. I actually started using this about a week before getting my period, and I didn't get not one one blemish! My face has been completely clear since using this. This scrub is so gentle I am able to use it everyday, it has decreased the redness I usually get around my nose and my face has really brightened up. It smells so amazing too, not like green tea but like melon or something fruity. I got this for around 5 dollars at target and I will not buy another product again as long as this keeps working for me, it is inexpensive and so amazing.

  • E.L.F. Mechanical Eyelash Curler

    E.L.F. Mechanical Eyelash Curler

    Such a disappointment :(

    I wanted to like this so much because of the reviews and the price but I had such a bad experience with it just from the first couple of tries. First of all I loved the handles. They are comfortable and easy to maneuver. I was so excited to try It out. On the first try it was great, it fit my eyes nicely and curled my lashes well. I loved it! But then the next time I tried it, it started to pull my lashes right out! I wondered why, Its not like I was clamping down on my lashes so hard, I did it the same way I always have. When I took a look at it, I noticed that the padding was split in the middle from the top metal part and my lashes were getting caught in there. So I discarded that one and used the extra one that it came with. Once again on the first try it worked fine, I even tried to be a little more careful and clamp down a little more gently. But then, after a second try the same thing happened. It was pulling out about 2-3 lashes at a time from the split in the middle of the padding. At that point unfortunately I had to throw it away. I reminded myself it was only a dollar but nonetheless, I don't like throwing stuff away like that. If they would make the padding a little better I would definitely love it, because that was the only problem I had with it, although it was a big problem because of the many lashes I was loosing. I wonder why there are not more people who have this problem, I see a couple complaints but not many. Maybe its the one I got?

  • Cover Girl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm

    I love these kind of balms because of the shape, they look like big crayons that you paint your lips with. I like how they twist up and you don't have to sharpen them. I have 2 of these, one is Mauve twist and the other is Rose twist. They both look great, especially the Mauve one. I have a problem finding good colors for me, I have fair skin and pale lips so everything always appears very pigmented on me. So I have to be careful with the colors I get because a lot of times they come out too bright or too dark on me and personally don't like very bright or dark colors. I was actually very content with these colors, they both looked as I hoped they would on me. For someone who likes brighter colors, this may not be for you. But for me they are perfect, they offer a nice amount of color and shine but nothing too dramatic. They go on smoothly and they last pretty long. They are not as long lasting as the Revlon balm stains, but they do last a few hours. They don't really have a certain smell or taste they actually smell and taste like a lipstick would, except they are not as drying as lipstick. Overall I really like these, the quality is great, they are not expensive, and I am very happy with the colors.

  • Revlon PhotoReady Airbrush Mousse Makeup

    I did not like this and didn't repurchase, In fact I couldn't even finish it. Its very light weight which is nice but it doesn't give me that much coverage and its kind of watery and made my face shiny.

  • Neutrogena Naturals Fresh Cleansing + Makeup Remover
    10.0

    Neutrogena Naturals Fresh Cleansing + Makeup Remover

    Great cleanser and makeup remover!

    This stuff it great! What caught my attention is that its natural. I love natural products I feel they are the best for your skin. It has a nice fruity kind of smell and really leaves my face feeling fresh and clean. It is gentle and when I use it around my eyes, I don't feel any stinging or burning. It does a good job at removing makeup too which is definitely a plus because I usually have to have a cleanser and then get a separate makeup remover so its convenient that this has both. I only have to use a small amount because it lathers enough so that you don't have to use so much which makes it last longer. Its only around 7 dollars so its inexpensive too!

  • Neutrogena Clear Pore Daily Scrub
    8.0

    Neutrogena Clear Pore Daily Scrub

    Pretty good for mild acne

    I am one of those people who started getting mild acne later in life. I started getting it when I was 24. It really bothered me because I never had a Problem with my skin, people in high school asked me what I used on my face to keep it so clear and I never really used anything special besides soap and water. So I had no idea why I started breaking out at this age but someone told me this stuff was good for mild acne. It took some time for this to work, probably about two weeks, but it did minimize my break outs. I am only giving it a 8 because it didn't completely stop the break outs as I still get a blemish here and there (usually around that time of the month) but overall it is very good. Also leaves the face feeling smooth and fresh. I use this once a day because if I use it too much, it can be a little drying to my skin. I'm not sure how this would work on someone with worse acne but its good for mild acne.
