  • Burt's Bees Coconut Foot Creme

    this foot cream smells AMAZING! and it does a really good job of moisturizing. i do prefer foot creams with exfoliating ingredients, because then they actually remove dead skin in addition to moisturizing the live skin, but this works fantastic even without that. just make sure to wear socks over it because it's a bit greasy.

  • NYX Cosmetics NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil

    this product would crease on its own, but on top of a primer it works great as an eyeshadow base. powder shadows really pop when they're applied over this. i took off one star because it does crease if you aren't careful, and another because it's a little hard to blend.

  • Almay Makeup Remover Towelettes

    Almay Makeup Remover Towelettes

    hard on sensitive skin

    these do a good job taking off makeup, but they irritate my eyes pretty badly and sometimes make my skin burn mildly. not my favorite. i also don't like the little sticker that is supposed to seal the package. it doesn't stick well at all so there's not much protection from drying out.

    MAC Face and Body

    perfect sheer coverage foundation

    i wanted a foundation that was almost as sheer as a tinted moisturizer, but that wouldn't get all shiny and greasy (the main reason I don't like tinted moisturizers). This fits the bill perfectly, and i can actually build up the coverage on days when i want a little more. my one complaint is that it gets a teeeensy bit shiny when i do more than one layer, but it's nothing a little powder can't take care of!

  • MAC Wipes
    10.0

    MAC Wipes

    holy grail

    I LOVE THESE! they are the first makeup removing wipes that never irritate my eyes. others sting a bit when i remove my mascara, and sometimes sting allover when my skin is extra sensitive. but the MAC ones are perfect! the smooth side takes off waterproof eye makeup easily, and the rougher side gives a good exfoliating cleanse to the whole face. i also love that the package actually has a flip top, instead of just the sticker that other companies rely on. This way the wipes stay moist for longer.

  • Avalon Organics Lavender Moisture Plus Lotion with SPF 18

    this is generally a really good moisturizer. no greasiness, and it smells AMAZING! but i love lavender, which i guess is unusual. it stings a tiny bit when i first apply it, but doesn't leave any redness so i don't mind. it doesn't get a great safety rating from cosmetics database, so i took off a star for that, but i appreciate that the company doesn't test on animals.

  • Ardell Brow Perfection Stencils

    Ardell Brow Perfection Stencils

    good, but not perfect

    i got this as a cheap alternative to the anastasia stencils. the "elegant" brow shape is a pretty close match for me, but i wish it came with more stencils. it seems like 4 shapes isn't going to be enough to match everyone. but this works well as a quick brow tool. i just place it over my eyebrows and fill in with powder, then blend so that it doesn't look unnatural.

  • St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse

    perfect! smells good, doesn't go orange, doesn't streak, the tan lasts and lasts...i love it! unfortunately it gets a not so good safety rating from cosmetics database, so i took off one star. but other than that, it's perfect!

  • MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural
    6.0

    MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural

    great product, but some downsides

    i have this in light-medium, and when i wear it on top of tinted moisturizer i get the perfect amount of coverage, with a nice glowy finish. however, this product doesn't do a great job of controlling shine, and i don't like how crumbly it gets. it also gets a high toxicity rating from cosmeticsdatabase.com. but i like the product for the most part, and appreciate that mac doesn't test on animals.
