  • Nars Blush-Bronzer Duo

    0rgasm is my favorite blush [which was CORALista before I used it] & Laguna quickly became my favorite bronzer. I had been using a cheap Jane. or ELF bronzer my whole life so I never knew how great a real bronzer can look. Laguna does not look orange, too shimmery, or unnatural on my light skin. It is the perfect mocha color for contouring my cheeks. I really want to try Albatross because I hear that it is such a fabulous highlighter as well. I sampled it in Sephora and was pleased but I would prefer to see the color outside first. I love the NARS rubbery packaging but this is so0o expensive!

  • Urban Decay Surreal Skin Cream-to-Powder Foundation

    The packaging on this one is AMAZING! Super durable and adorable everyone always compliments this compact when I whip it out of my make up bag. The brush it comes with is fab for touch ups and I love that it has holes at the bottom of the compact so my brush doesn't sit in old powder. This product lasts all day on my face and I do not get extra oily from it like a lot of other foundations. Blends into my skin perfectly and does not feel mask like or cakey. Comes with an average amount of foundation. I am taking off one star because it is super expensive but totally worth it for oily gals such as myself.

  • Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Airbrushing Kabuki Brush

    I have been on the hunt for a good buffing kabuki brush ever since I have started using make up. I had tried Too Faced, Bare Escentuals, EcoTools & MAC when I finally broke down and visited my local WalMart. They had this baby there for around $10 & I instantly feel in love with the price and packaging! This Physician's Formula is a flatbuki with super packed dense bristles that are around half an inch tall. They feel like taklon material and have the cutest sky blue tips! I love the handle it fits in my hand perfectly and blends all of my make up really well. Definitely like this more than any other brush I have used. The Too Faced kabuki is a close second but the bristles are just too long and flimsy. The PF brush is the perfect length for buffing & applying powders & creams. I like to use my MAC 187 for applying foundation, use my Bare Escentuals angled brush to apply blush, bronzer & highlighter, and then use the Physician's Formula kabuki for blending them all together flawlessly.

  • Burt's Bees Radiance Lip Shimmer

    I got this for xmas & I am not super impressed. The menthol feels nice on the lips but that is about it. The color is more WHITE than shimmery & the taste is kind of icky. Very sticky and when applying I feel it tugging against my lips. Very over priced and not a lot of product. Would not recommend.

  • Glytone Exfoliating Lotion 1

    I had clear skin up until I became an adult and started using make up. I went a little over board and piled so many crazy chemicals on my skin it finally freaked out and gave me some zits & blackheads. After the *break out* I realized the worst part of adult pimples was not over yet. I still had some major scarring to deal with & the blackheads refused to go any where! After some research I decided to try using chemical exfoliates [the sugar and salt were just not cutting it any more] and was lead to this little bottle of Magic. Within a week of use the size and color of my scars was seriously reduced. Even my husband complemented my skin! I have been using the product for around a month now and my scars are so tiny and my blackheads are pretty much gone! I think after another month my skin will probably look model perfect thanks to this formula! It seems kind of pricey & it is but a little product goes a long way and it will make you finally stop worrying about those spots on your face! Just remember to SPOT TREAT with this and do not just rub it all over! It will seriously mess up your unblemished skin!

  • Boscia Soothing Cleansing Cream: Cleansers

    I was using an Elemis cream cleanser but I realized that it contained pretty much every paraben known to man so I switched to this [plus it is over $10 cheaper]. I am very happy that I decided to ditch my old cleanser for this one. The formula feels just like a cream and feels so smooth and cool against my skin it is instantly relaxing. It leaves my skin feeling soft and glowing after I massage it in for a minute or two. I have oily skin that sometimes breaks out a little bit and I had no problems with this cleanser. Leaves my skin feeling so hydrated that I even go without a moisturizer sometimes! You cannot beat the ingredients list on this product! INGREDIENTS: Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Water, Dimethicone, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, PEG-8 Glyceryl Isostearate, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Leaf Extract, Epilobium Angustifolium Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Root Extract, Althaea Officinalis Root Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Hydrogenated Rapeseed Alcohol, Xanthan Gum, Potassium Carbomer, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Oil

  • Make Up For Ever HD Foundation Invisible Cover Foundation

    $40USD an Oz is really pushing it but if a product is good enough sometimes it can justify such a large price tag. Make Up For Ever HD starts off very promising with sleek packaging & a simple, sanitary pump dispenser. There are lots of colors to choose from and they have yellow & pink undertones in the line to fit any gal's needs. The formula itself is very lightweight and easy to blend, it almost instantly sinks into the skin. The coverage of this foundation is like that of a tinted moisturizer. It did not cover redness or scars very well. It also did not help with my under eye area very much. I have not taken a photo using this yet but the fact that it has no coverage in real life is a HUGE turn off for me. If this make up is only for photos I believe it should be a LOT cheaper. I do not have really bad skin, only three red acne scars and this product does not cover up a single one of them. All the other foundations I have tried have been cheaper and much more effective then this product. I suppose this formula is strictly for photos...

  • Sonia Kashuk Kashuk Tools Brow Groomer with Metal Comb

    You cannot beat these prices! This brush is sturdy and gets the job done perfectly. The set is super chic looking and great for travel. My mother does not use anything but Sonia Kashuk because of how cheap and high quality this line is and she has been using make up for quite a bit of time. hehe. I would definitely recommend this or ecotools for your drugstore brush collection!

  • EcoTools Bamboo Eye Shading Brush

    This eye shadow brush is *really* worth it if you purchase the five piece set. The taklon fibers are great at keeping their shape even with lots of washing. The bamboo handle is super sturdy and attached to the bristles tightly. It feels quite comfortable in my hand and is not so long that it is difficult to get close to my mirror [which is a big pet peeve of mine!]. This brush packs on the color and distributes it evenly. I like to pat my shadow on with this instead of sweeping it though. Definitely will be repurchasing this!

  • Pantene Pro-V Ice Shine Shampoo

    I love the scent of the Ice Shine line. I really like to use this particular Pantene formula for when I straighten my hair because this really helps with the flyaways. I really like the packaging it is very chic looking and easy to dispense product while in the shower. This is one of my favorite drugstore buys!
