    Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow

    fabulous in every sense of the word

    I'm generally not a dramatic look type of person. I like natural and low key makeup (and I generally don't wear makeup that often). So I tend not to splurge in the eye makeup department. However, the urban decay deluxe shadows are one exception. I own 9 of the 12 colors and I've used each one. The eyeshadows aren't heavily shimmery, just plain old bold color. You can downplay them with tissues and whatnot or heighten the color with eyeshadow primer. Even by themselves the colors are terrific. My eyelids aren't very oily, but when I dance (which is generally when I where eye shadow), I go all out. These eyeshadows hold up amazingly well against the sweaty sheen that plagues a dance fanatics face. Fun, bright, non-creasing, and versatile.

    CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Mascara

    The ONLY mascara I've stayed with

    I'm not too high maintenance when it comes to mascara. Most probably because my past uses of it have all ended in failure. I generally don't go for the more expensive brands of eye makeup (except Urban Decay eyeshadows) and of all the drugstore brands I've tried, this is the only one that doesn't clump for me. Provided, I don't expect dramatic length (my eyelashes are much too short for this expectation), but I get a nice natural looking length. I don't use mascara very often. But when I do, this is most definitely my go to. Its easy to use, very good looking, and it works perfectly for what I'm expecting.

  • Graham Webb Back to Basics Coconut Mango Rich Moisture Shampoo

    I've used dozens of shampoos in my lifetime: Paul Mitchell, Pantene, Herbal Essence, Garnier, etc. But this happens to be an absolute gem. It smells absolutely divine and the smell definitely lasts. I have dark, thick, and long hair and this shampoos wonderfully. My hair feels clean, but not stripped. Its absolutely great.

  • Kiehl's Musk Eau de Toilette Spray

    I often rotate between this scent and Versace's Bright Crystal. BC on lighter days and Kiehl's when I want a bit of 'oomph in my day.' Honestly, the scent it mind-numbingly sensual. And it has magical self-adjusting properties and mixes with different people's scents to creative something wonderful. I'm not often swept away by any time of fragrance, but this is it. Its earthy and warms up magnificently. Its versatility is also enhanced by its androgynous nature. I've known both men and women who wear it.

  • Versace Bright Crystal

    Versace Bright Crystal

    Definite double-smell

    By far my perfume of choice. Let me relay to you two incidents in which this perfume proved its greatness. I was with a few friends at the mall and someone I had never met was in the group. A very cute someone. I went up to him and greeted and he INHALED my scent and was actually dazed. When we parted ways he asked for my number and interestingly enough, he listed it as Great Smelling Girl. We remain friends to this day, and the name still hasn't left. Another incident: The TA for one of my classes and I had often participated in debates after school. On one such debate (when I began to use Bright Crystal) he paused and asked what perfume I was wearing. Turns out he wanted to buy it for his wife. I love it. It lasts on me. Its light and guys really seem to enjoy it. I wasn't at all a perfume person until I was given Bright Crystal as a gift.

  • Prescriptives Acne Defense Serum

    I've had generally clear skin with the occasional breakout every now and then for most of my life. That completely changed when I went to India last summer. The new environment wreaked havoc on my face and I was covered in painful acne of many types. When I came back home I began a search for something that would take me back to the golden days. Enter Prescriptives Acne Defense Serum. Its an amazing serum. My skin instantly began to clear and I was so happy about this product. It isn't a complete miracle. You still have to have an overall great skin regime, but this will definitely add to it. It treats and prevents breakouts very well. A few months ago, I did run out of this product. And I've been to lazy to go grab it again. Three newly formed blemishes on my face agree with me. It works, its gentle, and its easy to use.
