    EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm

    Yummy scent, cute packaging

    This is my favorite lip moisturizer, I even like this better than softlips and burt's bees. I like that this is organic, it smells like passionfruit (red), the cap stays on, it has cute packaging, and it does a good job of moisturizing your lips and making them soft without feeling greasy. Some people may complain about the bulky packaging, but it's a great thing to have on your nightstand because it won't roll away and it's easy to find. Also, the price is right and it lasts forever! I almost can't wait to run out so I can try another flavor! I would purchase this again and try the other flavors. NOTE: some reviewers complained that it was awkward to put on and felt waxy....treat this like a watery mascara, give it some time for the product to settle. When I first put this on, I didn't like it at all, it was weird to put on and the texture was not something I was used to. I told my friend who had recommended it to me, and she said not to worry, they're all like that when you first buy it, you just have to keep using it and it will become easier to apply and won't feel waxy anymore. I'm so glad I listened to her advice! This is now my favorite.

  • E.L.F. Essential Eye Shadow Brush
    7.0

    E.L.F. Essential Eye Shadow Brush

    $1 for a great brush

    I found this at Target for $1 and couldn't resist. I tried it and it works great, it picks up a lot with just one sweep and the bristles are really soft and feel sturdy. It applies smoothly and works well for blending. Would recommend to anyone on a budget looking for a quality eye shadow brush. Update----after several months of use, the metal part detached from the handle on both of them I own. Not too happy about that :/ maybe I can try hot gluing it back on. At least it's cheap to replace.

  • Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lip Colour
    9.0

    Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lip Colour

    Love it, but not much color selection.

    I love the cute purple packaging, and how smoothly this applies. It's richly pigmented and moisturizing. The only thing I don't like is that weird waxy smell! So if that bothers you a lot, don't buy it...or just don't smell it. I bought this in pink chic. It was on sale and at first I didn't like it because it would settle into my liplines and look weird but then I used chapstick before applying it and now I love it! I would purchase this again, hopefully they'll have more colors to try by then.

  • Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

    Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

    Great daily cleanser

    I use this every single day because it doesn't break out my skin as some other cleansers have ironically... And it doesn't dry out my combo skin either. Nothing special, just a good cleanser for daily use. No complaints :)

  • CoverGirl CG Smoothers Concealer
    10.0

    CoverGirl CG Smoothers Concealer

    My favorite drugstore concealer!

    I bought this on a whim and I chose this one because it had the strongest pink undertone for my dark circles. I wasn't expecting much, but this really does lighten up your dark circles. It's creamy and blends easily with your finger or a foundation brush. Does not look cakey either. Also works well for covering minor acne.

  • NYX Cosmetics NYX Slim Pencil Eye
    9.0

    NYX Cosmetics NYX Slim Pencil Eye

    Love it! But not for waterline.

    I like that this doesn't smudge and it stays on for a decent amount of time. The pencil is fine for your lid but isn't soft enough for your waterline. Nevertheless, this is my daily pencil eyeliner for my top lid because it's the perfect blend of a firm but soft pencil. Very affordable with good color selection! Would purchase again.

  • Benefit Erase Paste

    Benefit Erase Paste

    *The Holy Grail for dark circles*

    I tried this out at Sephora. I barely used any on my deep dark circles, but they vanished! This stuff is amazing! Nothing else has worked on my dark circles until I tried this, it worked instantly! My friend noticed the difference immediately, she said it made me look more awake. Although it is expensive $26 for a tiny jar, I would recommend this to anyone who has problems concealing dark circles or other blemishes. You only need a tiny amount to do the job because it spreads easily. It looks almost pink in the jar, but when you put it on, it blends in with your skin color. The medium also looked too dark but it also blends in nicely. The only con is the price.

  • Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation with SPF 15
    10.0

    Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation with SPF 15

    Wow! This works for all skin types

    This foundation is so inexpensive but it gives great, natural looking coverage. I even like this better than Revlon's ColorStay Foundation. This covers redness, acne bumps, sunspots, etc. It works well on my combination skin and my friend's normal skin. We both love this foundation because of it's natural looking coverage. This can be applied with a brush or just clean fingers. It does not need to be set with powder because it doesn't make you oily. If you're looking for a poreless look, this foundation may not be for you as it gives a born-with-flawless-skin look. There aren't many color options but the match perfection technology is no gimmick, it will blend with your skin tone and texture without compromising coverage. It staying power is good, nothing extraordinary. What more could you ask for in a foundation under five dollars?

  • E.L.F. Tone Correcting Concealer
    8.0

    E.L.F. Tone Correcting Concealer

    $1 for a decent concealer

    Pros: great value, lasts for a long time, has a faint smell of oranges, good for non-severe dark circles, convenient packaging, does not look chalky if you apply the right amount, this is a great thing to carry around in your purse, etc. because of the portability and price in case you loose things easily Cons: not good for large blemishes such as acne but this will fade it a bit, not a wide variety of shades available (i got one that looked too dark on my wrist but it still works just fine), standard applicator (nothing special) Note: To conceal zits, I pair this with the ELF zit zapper to take away the redness, then I apply this concealer on top and it works surprisingly well!

  • Garnier Fructis Style Curl Shaping Spray Gel

    This works really well on my 95+ year old grandmother's somewhat naturally curly hair. I spray it for her and in a few minutes the curls look more defined without being stiff. The best thing about it is that this does not weigh down the curls so my grandma still had volume in her hair which made her look a few years younger :P I would recommend this to anyone who wants to enhance their curls because it's really inexpensive (under $5) and it enhances curls without weighing them down and making them stiff. (note: The results were so good that I decided to try their wave enhancing spray for myself & I LOVE it!)
