  • Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy Luminizing Face Primer

    My skin is combination oily and this didn't make it greasy. I see what other reviewers meant by too glittery. I wouldn't say there were large chunks of glitter like some have, but my face did have a bit too much sparkle for my taste. There might have been too much sparkle because I use products with very sheer coverage, so this might be fine or even terrific someone who uses products with more coverage products.

  • Tarte Natural Cheek Stain

    Tarte Natural Cheek Stain

    the perfect natural flush--as soon as I figured out how to apply it

    When I first saw the actual color I was worried--I'm very fair with blonde hair so it looked like it would be way too dark for me. The first couple of times I tried it I put it over my powder and blended with my fingers but I didn't like the way it looked. I finally read somewhere that I should put it on a bit heavier than I normally would before my foundation, let it sit for a minute or two, then apply the rest of my make-up as usual. It made the world of difference. Since it's under my foundation and powder it looks super natural. It lasts all day long, even with my combination oily skin. $30 is a fairly high price tag for me for blush, but a little goes a long way on fair skin so I know it will last for a very long time. Plus, I blend a bit on my eye lids (also before my foundation) for a bit of natural-looking color. All in all, this is probably my favorite make-up pruchase ever.

  • Pop Beauty Lid Bronzer

    I have fair skin with blue undertones so this is a great color palette for me. It does seem to fade mid-way through my day which is really disappointing, but I do love the colors so it's still my daily go-to eyeshadow.

  • Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Natural Powder Blush
    6.0

    Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Natural Powder Blush

    okay color, very sheer, not long-lasting

    My style is very natural-looking make-up so I bought this blush in Ethereal, thinking it would just give me a little bit of a flushed look. I had to put more on than I expected to just to get any real color, which I guess is better than having it go on way too dark, but after a few hours I felt like it was barely visible. I'll probably keep using it for shorter events but it won't be my first choice for all-day color.

  • Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Fast Fix Concealer

    I was really disappointed with this concealer. Based on the website I expected it to cover better and stay put longer. I have fair skin with blue undertones so this was a little yellow for me, even under my powder. By mid-day it was almost as if I hadn't put any concealer on at all. The one thing I can say for this product is that it didn't make me break out or cause any skin irritation of any kind.

  • Sally Hansen Natural Beauty Natural Shine Lip Gloss

    This lip gloss is a pretty good all-around pick. It smells nice without being overpowering, has a nice shine without being TOO shiny and gives great color. The application brush makes it hard to put on too much and it doesn't dry out my lips like a lot of products do. It would be great if it lasted longer but overall I'm pretty satisfied with this purchase and I'll probably purchase more shades in the future.

  • Neutrogena Sugar Scrub Body Exfoliator

    I love this body scrub. I've tried many body scrubs over the last decade or so but this is my all-time favorite. I think the citrus smell is wonderful (my boyfriend loves it, too). It gives me soft skin without being too oily or greasy. They don't sell it in my area anymore so I've resorted to ordering it online, but even with the shipping cost it's completely worth it.

  • E.L.F. Mineral Foundation

    It's a decent product for the money. I have combination oily skin so I tend to use this only in the summer. It gives me much lighter coverage than Bare Minerals, which I like a lot. I'm also very fair and the lightest foundation shade is a little dark for me unless I layer it over the concealer powder or use it very sparingly.

  • Yes to Carrots C Through the Dry Spell Deliciously Rich Body Butter

    Yes to Carrots C Through the Dry Spell Deliciously Rich Body Butter

    No Need to Try Any More Body Creams, Lotions or Butters

    I'm a total product junkie, so I've tried tons of body creams, lotions and butters, but this is definitely one of my favorites. Hands-down my favorite drugstore buy. One application in the morning and my skin feels moisturized all day. There is a bit of a scent to it but personally I don't find it overpowering so it's not an issue for me. I think it's the perfect balance of quality and price. My current tub is almost out, and I'll definitely be buying another one--you can't ask for a better endorsement than that.

  • Elta MD UV Sheild SPF 45 Oil-Free

    I have combination-oily skin so I have to be really careful about what I put on my face, but this sunscreen is fantastic. It doesn't make my face greasy at all. I won't leave the house without putting it on my face.
