  • Maybelline New York Dream Fresh BB

    i love this. don't like using foundations, they're too heavy and don't look natural enough. this is subtle and realistic. unfortunately, after a while of wearing it, my skin gets oily and gross. i've found that nyx matte finish setting spray solves the problem, though.

  • Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer

    my skin appeared much smoother instantly after applying this. it's easy to apply, and a little bit goes a long way: just squeeze a little onto your fingers and spread it evenly across your skin. i used it under my foundation and it greatly improved the appearance and evenness.

  • Maybelline New York Baby Lips

    these are my favorite lip balms and the only ones i use almost every day. they're incredibly hydrating and have pleasant scents. i've been using them since 2011, when they first launched in the usa, and they've improved the health and texture of my lips, and they appear to be slightly fuller as well. i own all of the limited edition and classic colors - the best colors in my opinion are pink wink and coral crush. the sheer pink shade, twinkle, is nice but essentially colorless once applied. the worst color is the peach kiss, it's this weird sparkly tan and has a strange texture. i also recently bought baby lips d. rescue in too cool (the clear one). i always get incredibly chapped and aching lips when i have a cold, and this worked wonders. not only did it rehydrate my gross dry lips, but the topical painkillers it contains eased the painful ache without numbing my lips. it also has a nice cooling effect. i haven't tried the colored dr. rescues, but i will soon. i haven't tried the electro shades either. not sure i'm interested in neon balms. the balms last rather well but you'll definitely have to reapply multiple times a day, so keep a tube on you when you go out. all in all: these balms are amazing and i endorse them 100%, except for peach kiss. peach kiss is gross.

    Dior Addict Lip Maximizer

    does not plump

    I splurged on this product and I really wish I didn't. It did not deliver the promised 'lip maximizing' effect, nor did it plump my lips any noticeable amount. It's a very nice lipgloss: the shine is lasting, the smell is pleasant, and the tingling feeling is nice, but it is not a plumper. If you're going to buy this, don't get it full-price, cause it's not worth it.

  • Maybelline New York Volum' Express The Mega Plush Waterproof Mascara

    This is one of the most natural-looking mascaras I've ever used. The effect is much subtler than most mascaras. The promise that it'll leave your lashes soft, not stiff like most mascaras, is 100% accurate. It doesn't run or rub off, either: I wore this while learning to surf and despite the innumerable wipeouts, it was still going strong when I got out of the water. The downside to this is that it can be a chore to remove, even with specialized eye makeup remover. If you're looking for dynamic lashes, this isn't for you, but its a great tool to have in your arsenal.

  • Herbal Essences Honey, I'm Strong Silkening Spray

    the spray has a very nice, sweet scent. haven't noticed any of the 'detangling' properties it claims to have. it does make my hair very soft and silky, though. the atomizer is utter crap - it doesn't really come out as a 'spray,' more like a little jet of the stuff. but all you have to do it spray a few jets on different areas of you hair, then run a brush all the way through a couple times to properly distribute the product. a+ for scent, b for effectiveness, c- for delivery

  • Sally Hansen Maximum Growth Daily Nail Growth Program

    i use this polish regularly - usually on its own. it gives my nails a gorgeous, lasting shine. i can usually go a full week before it starts to chip, and i'm notoriously rough on my hands. as for the growth, my nails may grow a little faster, but i can't really tell. they are definitely stronger, though. highly recommend.

  • Marc Jacobs Daisy EDT Rollerball

    daisy is my favorite fragrance. i have a big bottle at home, but i stow the rollerball in my purse when i'm going out. the scent is subtle, charming, and lighthearted.

  • Secret Clinical Strength Sensitive Skin

    this deodorant is great because it has a very subtle scent, and keeps me dry all day with just one application. i hate scented deodorants, and it's really hard to find an unscented one that works well, but this one is perfect.

  • Crest 3D White Multi-Care Whitening Rinse

    i've been using this product for about a month along with the whitening toothpaste, and it does wonders for my coffee-stained teeth. they're much whiter now. the only bad thing is that this mouthwash has a kinda gross taste, and after you spit it out, it kinda feels like you have a film in your mouth. i recommend just drinking some water to get rid of it.
