  • Clinique Even Better Makeup SPF15

    This stuff leaves your skin looking flawless! It doesn't look like you're wearing makeup at all. And it actually does what it claims! The first day I wore it, I washed my face at the end of the day and my face looked a little brighter. The next day, after washing my face, I was ALL up in the mirror, wondering "Did the makeup not wash off?". By the 3rd use, I was amazed. It has truly perfected my skin. I didn't know much about this foundation (I received a sample) so I googled it and read the claims. It's amazing to me that I seen the results, without even knowing I should be looking for results! Needless to say, I RAN to the Clinique counter and bought a whole bottle. Good stuff!

  • Ben Nye Mini Shaker Translucent Powder Bottles

    Love this powder. My face tends to get oily nearing the end of the day. Amazingly, I don't need to touch up any throughout the day with this powder. This is now my holy grail of setting powders.

  • Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips

    I purchased these twice and I had a lot of trouble keeping them on my nails anywhere close to the 10 days it claims. Now, I add a base coat meant to strengthen the nails. I work on one nail at a time. Apply the base coat, wait until it dries, but is still slightly tacky. Then I apply the strip, which can be tedious, but totally works. My mani lasted every bit of 7 or 8 days. Just be extra careful placing it, as it can be very hard to lift and replace.

  • Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure

    This has good color payoff, but it takes forever, and I mean forever, to dry. One coat takes long enough, but try, just try, to do a second and you'll be blowing your nails for 30-45 minutes. I usually use a base coat (strengthener) under it, which, of course, can increase the drying time. So I have tried it with no base coat to try and improve the timing. It didn't help. I have tried the blow dryer, ice water, etc. to no avail. It does seem to resist chipping more than my other drugstore polishes and the brush is nice. I bought all of mine on clearance for $1.89, but I would never buy this at full retail price. If I am going to drop $8 on a polish, I'm grabbing the Essie, OPI, or China Glaze.

  • Maybelline New York Great Lash Washable Curved Brush Mascara

    I don't understand how this has been a top mascara for so long. I have tried it several times throughout the years and I just cannot get it to work for me. The bristles are spaced too far apart. The formula is far too thin and it doesn't hold my curl. It flakes later in the day. What am I doing wrong?! I actually have a tube now that I am doing my own little experiment with. I am going to let it "age" (lol) to see if it will work better for me once it has thickened in the tube because the main problem I have with it is the thin formula. Once applied, I can't so much as blink or I have it EVERYWHERE. Also, because of its thinness, one coat does nothing but color the lashes. Once I try to add a second coat, lumps galore! So, fingers crossed!

    CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara

    My new favorite mascara

    Boy this stuff is hit or miss. 50% love it and 50% hate it. I happen to love it. With 1 coat I get just the right amount to enhance my eyes while still looking natural. And for those nights when Im going out, it doesnt matter how many coats I apply, I dont get any clumps. About 3 coats and I look like Im wearing falsies! Love this stuff. Buying the Luxe next. GOTTA give that a go.

  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

    Im still on the fence with this one. Ive never had a problem with creasing (i only use powder eyeshadows) nor have I had a problem with my eyeshadow wearing off before the days end. But Ive seen people all over youtube and other places on the web saying that this is a must have. Its claims are to: Keep eyeshadow in its place all day, prevent creasing, and intensify the colors of your shadow. Because I dont have a problem with creasing or staying power, it took me a long time to purchase this (luckily I just bought a sample bottle) and the only reason I ran out and got it is because its SUPPOSED to intensify your eyeshadows. Well, it doesnt. If you have problems with creasing or your eyeshadow fadind by the end of the day, i definitely recommend this product. Its just not a must have for me.

  • Bumble and bumble Straight

    It took me a few times to get the application right but probably just because I wasnt use to using a straightening balm. Its much thicker than what Im use to working with. Once I got the application right, I loved the results I got. Totally worth the money. I'll definitely be purchasing again.

  • Tresemm√© Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray

    I use this religiously. It makes my hair so soft and shiny that I spray it in damp hair even when Im not planning on using heat that day. As far as protecting it. I dont really know. I straighten 2-3 times a week and I have some split ends but not many. It has to be helping. Regardless, I still love it for the way it make my hair look, feel, and smell

  • Infusium (Moisture)ologie Conditioner

    I have very thick, poofy hair. Its to my waist which means everything from my shoulders down is "old" hair. Older hair gets damaged more easily and you need a really good conditioner for it. I hate been looking for YEARS and have tried everything from Paul Mitchell to TIGI. None of those worked as well as this. No more swapping conditioners for me!
