My favorite concealer, just wish the darker color was lighter
This quad is fabulous! The concealer blends seamlessly into my skin, which is extremely oily and always full of blemishes. When I came home after my first long day of wearing it without a chance to repowder, my hopes were not very high. But this concealer has staying power! The green color is amazing for cancelling red blemishes. The powder is a fine quality, although I would rather have more concealer. I have extremely fair skin, so the dark color is almost unusable. I do mix a tiny bit of it with the light color, but I wish they sold some of the colors separately. Other than that, love love love!

My favorite deodorant!
This stuff works like a charm! I hate using the kinds with aluminum, but Tom's of Maine simply has not been cutting it for me lately. I am a heavy sweater, and I've had hardly a problem with this deodorant! The only downside is that the "fresh" scent seems slightly masculine to me, but it's not really that big of a deal. I will definitely be re-purchasing this!

My fav blush!
This is the best blush I have tried--such a perfect, naturally pretty and girly color that gives me a great flushed look. It matches my skin perfectly! The only possible downside is that sometimes by the end of the day it has disappeared, but I have extremely oily skin, so that is not unusual. The packaging is also quite nice, with a hidden mirror on the bottom. I don't usually bother with the brush it came with, but it could be nice in a pinch. I will definitely be buying this blush again, for a long time to come!

Did Someone Say 99 cents?
Love this fabulous budget lipstick! It's definitely not long-lasting--after eating, the only thing that remained was a bit of shimmer, but for 99 cents you can reapply ad infinitum! This is a fairly sheer lipstick, and my store doesn't have a ton of shades. But I purchased a lovely nude color, apply it generously, and voila! my new favorite lipstick that is absolutely gorgeous! My sister bought their 2.00 lipstick, but even that wasn't as good as this one.

I have very acne-prone skin, but finally broke down and bought this sunblock. It does not make me break out, but it protects wonderfully! I use this on my face only, and you definitely have to master the art of either spraying it into your face or spraying onto your hand and then rubbing into the skin. But I like it better than rubbing a cream into my skin! I share the bottle with my sister, and it's lasted a year and a half and is only now about gone! I use spf 45.

Nice foundation; Color Stay beats it though
I've tried both the Photo Ready and the Color Stay, so here are my thoughts. I love the pump of the photo ready, and the color is a great match for my skin. It is blendable and has a nice heavy coverage. When I first got it, my skin seemed irritated and I kept getting itchy redness. This went away after about a week, so although I have a hunch it was due to this foundation, I can't be sure because I've continued using it with no problems. The shimmer is not too obvious, but I just don't want other people noticing my "shimmering" face and worry that in some light they may. (-: This fact, coupled with the fact that the color stay's oily skin option works better with my skin makes me lean more towards the color stay.

This mascara results in voluminous but sadly clumpy lashes. The curved brush is fabulous, but I just can't stand clumpy, stuck together eyelashes. In addition, the mascara is more difficult to remove than other formulas--it requires a bit of rubbing to get it all off.

This is the best concealer I have tried thus far! It covers acne beautifully--and I get bad, crusty blemishes. I use it under my eyes, but only on top of a corrector, as my undereye circles are very bad and this alone won't cut it. It seems to last most of the day, although with my oily skin I have had to reapply sometimes. I love that it comes in a simple little pot--no gimmicks to break or wear out! Please note that, as with all concealers, you'll need a concealer brush to get the most out of this one.

I really love this mascara! First, the downfalls: it smells chemical and weird in the bottle, but it doesn't bother me on the eyes. Sometimes clumps gather on the end of the wand, so you just have to tap them off into the bottle before application. Now, the benefits: It separates individual hairs, and it feels a little like the original on steroids--better! To me, it lengthens and volumizes! It never smears or smudges, and it comes off quite easily. If you loved the original, you'll love this!
