  • Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick
    10.0

    Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick

    Favorite drugstore lipstick

    Affordable, wide color range with different finishes, classic packaging, and not drying! What more can I ask for? I have it in a few colors, but my hands down favorite is Sakura Blossom. It's a gorgeous red that can lean a bit on the pink side on lips that are less pigmented. It's a perfect red lip shade that is once again, SUPER affordable. Formulation is great. Not too slippery and will leave a pretty stain when it does fade, which for me, is approximately 4ish hours of wear.

  • Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner

    I love Rimmel products and got to try this when I bought a tube of Rimmel mascara. The eyeliner is a nice inky black, soft, and can be smudged. The problem? It doesn't set as expected to and within an hour or two of wear, I have unflattering smudges around my eyes. I don't have oily lids, so that was really disappointing. It might be fine if using a lighter color to brighten the eye, but overall, I didn't find it to be as water resistant as it was advertised. It does make for a great base and applying a black eyeshadow over it does help it set, but unfortunately, not a repurchase for me.

  • Clearasil Daily Clear Vanishing Acne Treatment Cream

    I'm lucky to have normal skin without any major skin issues, but being a college student, hormonal acne and breakouts are still rather common. An unflattering pimple or a small cluster here or there is rather normal. My friend recommend Clearisil to me, and I had my doubts, but I was wrong! It worked very quickly and my acne (if not picked) faded/reduced in size within a day or two. There is a little burning sensation and the product can be VERY drying. I have to apply moisturizer like crazy to prevent irritation and flaking. WARNING: IT WILL BLEACH YOUR CLOTHES. If not careful, the peroxide is strong enough to bleach your towels, clothes, pillowcase, etc.

  • Milani The Multitasker Face Powder
    8.0

    Milani The Multitasker Face Powder

    Great replacement/budget pressed powder!

    I like Lancome's pressed powder, but since I have tanned significantly in the past week I had to pick up a drugstore replacement. Milani's other pressed powder has rave review on TB, but my drugstore didn't carry it. I decided to go with this one as the price was on the cheaper side. I have it in tan, which is a bit surprising because on the display it is the second to darkest color they offer and for other brands, I'm dead smack in the beige/medium range. Even if the color selection is limited, I would say that going a tad darker won't hurt (especially in the summer). I was surprised to find that this powder was easily blended out (but it looked frighteningly dark on the sponge). It's light and lightly scented. The floral imprint is adorable. Only downside is the clunky packaging.

  • N.Y.C. New York Color Smooth Skin Loose Face Powder

    Much better than I had expected. This powder gets the job done with no added shimmer and scents. I buff a little on my T-Zone using a generic cotton puff I bought. I do wish that the lid was screwed on, though. I accidentally dropped it and the lid did not stay on. To avoid the powder from forming clouds of powder whenever I opened it and to have a light application, I taped the holes and re-punctured them using a small pin.

  • Nivea A Kiss of Shine Glossy Lip Care

    I'm a bit confused as to why so many found this sticky and unappealing. I repurchased this four times and never have I encountered a sticky formula. It has just the right amount of shine and shimmer so that it doesn't come off as makeup. It's perfect for school wear or simply a nice, natural look. It looks great over lipstick or stains. In its defense, it isn't marketed as a lipgloss. It's supposed to be "glossy lip care." I think it's a good alternative to using non-colored lip balms and traditional lip glosses. I also find the scent delicious. It reminds me a lot of lychee.

  • Nivea  A Kiss of Smoothness SPF 10
    10.0

    Nivea A Kiss of Smoothness SPF 10

    Super soft lips in no time

    This balm is my go-to favorite. I have three tubes of it! One for the bag, one at home, and one in my pocket. It absorbs into my lips super quickly and has no tacky, super sweet flavor. It's great for adding moisture to lipsticks that are a bit on the dry side.

  • Aveeno Soothing Bath Treatment
    10.0

    Aveeno Soothing Bath Treatment

    Cleanup is so worth it

    I adore this oatmeal bath. A few years ago, I had an awful mysterious rash. My derm suggested using this bath in addition to the standard application of calamine lotion. While this left a messy clump of oatmeal bits around the rub, soaking it it was splendid. It's super calming and eases dryness and itch instantly. After a week of using this, my rash was subdued and now, I keep a box on hand in case of emergency sunburns, rashes, poison ivy, etc.

  • Aveeno Positively Radiant Cleanser
    3.0

    Aveeno Positively Radiant Cleanser

    For the price, it underperforms

    I love foaming cleansers, and I love Aveeno products. What in the world went wrong here? I simply didn't get any bang for my buck. It simply washed my face without really leaving it completely cleaned. In other words, it was too gentle. I have pretty sensitive skin, especially in the winter, but this did nothing. I have had better results with washing my face with a bar of moisturizing body soap.

  • Neutrogena Healthy Skin Visibly Even Foaming Cleanser

    I have been using this cleanser for two years, and it simply keeps my skin in the best condition it can be in. It's just the right amount of scrub, foam, moisture, everything! Some have complained that it feels "greasy" on the skin, but remember that this is a FOAMING cleanser. When nicely lathered up, this cleanser will not disappoint. However, it has been harder and harder to find in stores and my last bottle was ordered online. I am hoping that Neutrogena has not discontinued this product. It is a solid performer that really does help even out the skin over time (by which I mean daily long term use).
