  • Maybelline New York Dream Bouncy Blush

    I bought this in the color Plum Wine and it is pigmented and a very pretty berry-pink. From what I know, the lighter shades are very poorly pigmented which is why I purchased the darkest color (Plum Wine). The colors look bright in the pan but when blended, it gives the perfect natural pink flush. The texture of this product is unique. The best description I can give is that it feels like stiff marshmallows. I have never used a product like this but I really enjoy it. However, I don't like that you need to apply it with your fingers. Make sure you gently tap (don't rub! it'll make your foundation/concealer rub off) the product onto your cheeks using your fingers. The packaging is small and great for carrying in your purse, especially because this only lasts about 5 hours on my face. Overall a nice product. If you're interested in it, I would definitely tell you to give it a try (in either Plum Wine or Hot Tamale -- the darker shades available).

  • Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation

    I find this to be so much better than the Revlon Colorstay Foundation (thick, cakey, and oxidized like crazy). This lasts all day, doesn't feel heavy or thick at all, and doesn't rub off on my clothes. This gives medium to full coverage and feels pretty lightweight to me. I apply this onto my oily skin after moisturizing and I don't even need to set this with a powder! This is truly a long-wearing foundation and I highly recommend it.

  • Carmex Original Carmex Stick

    This is the only thing that kept my lips soft during the cold winter months. My lips get severely chapped so I applied this every night and woke up with the softest lips! One application will last you all day. This is a really thick lip balm so I don't use it very often in the summer time, but I do periodically to prevent my lips from chapping.

  • Softlips Lip Protectant/Sunscreen SPF 20

    I highly recommend using this in the summertime. It's a great lightweight lip balm that isn't too thick or heavy during the warm weather. It keeps my lips healthy and sun-protected (SPF 20!!!). It's slightly greasy but I think it's because of the SPF. I wouldn't use this during the wintertime because it is a thin product (I recommend Carmex for chapped lips in the winter). I've purchased these in multiple flavors because they smell delicious! They're very cheap too ($2.88 for a pack of two) so I keep one in my bathroom, one in my purse, etc. I look forward to continuing to use these all summer long.

  • Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 15

    This claims to be hypoallergenic, noncomedogenic, etc, but it makes my skin red and itchy. My acne went down once I stopped using this. Moisture-wise, it works well in making my skin soft, but I found this to be very irritating.

  • CoverGirl Cheekers Blush

    These smell disgusting and are a bit too shimmery for my liking. There are a lot of pretty colors to choose from and very cheap. I understand why a lot of people enjoy them, but I am against scented products because they tend to give me headaches and irritate my skin (this wasn't irritating, but the smell was overpowering and I could smell it while wearing throughout the day). I'll use up the rest of this product but I definitely won't be buying this again.

  • L'Oreal Paris True Match Super Blendable Powder

    I normally have trouble finding a powder that matches my skin tone and but L'oreal's True Match line does a great job at giving a huge variety of shades. I find that this powder isn't overly cakey and surprisingly has some great coverage as well. I wear this over my foundation but on days when I don't use foundation, I use a moisturizer and sunscreen and then apply this on top of it. It does a great job with covering my acne scars and controlling my oily skin throughout the day. My only complaint is the packaging. It comes with a great mirror and sponge, but the plastic package broke (I didn't even drop it!) after a few months. However, I haven't seen anyone else having this problem...

  • Shiseido Pureness Deep Cleansing Foam

    This is the only cleanser I have ever used that does not make my skin red and irritated. I have been using this for several months now and I am very happy with the results.

    Almay Intense I-Color Liquid Eyeliner

    Why is it so shimmery?!

    I couldn't find anything on the packaging that mentions that there are shimmers/sparkles in it. The formula looks kind of gross because of it. The tip picks up a little too much formula so it's hard to get a thin line. The plus side is that it gives a very bold and dramatic color. Some people will like this better than others. I personally don't like the thick, shimmery line that this product makes on my eyes.

  • Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Mascara

    This mascara is amazing. I can't get over how long and thick my short sparse lashes look when I use this. I did not notice any growth in my lashes until a few months after I started using this mascara, but that doesn't really matter to me since I won't be going out without wearing this product anyway. :)
