Daisy by Marc Jacobs Perfume Review

Daisy by Marc Jacobs smells so lovely, like a bouquet of fresh-cut flowers. It's a beautiful, delicate scent that everyone can appreciate. This is my new favorite perfume! Its light enough but stays on and lasts all day. I always get compliments when I wear this scent. The bottle is so cute and look pretty amazing on my dressing table.

Have you tried out Marc Jacobs Daisy?  If you haven’t then I definitely recommend that you try it out!

Clinique - Chubby Stick - Woppin Watermelon

I love this lip color! It is perfect for me in the summer and is definitely my go-to lip color when the weather is warm. I like that the color is subtle, but very buildable, and also long-lasting. I also like that this product is moisturizing enough so that I don't have to wear Chapstick underneath.

Benefit High Beam

My favorite makeup product of all. I cannot go a day without using this, looks great alone or over foundation. I use it on my cheekbones, brow bones and sometimes even on the insides of my eyes. This little bottle lasts for about a 10 months with everyday use. Adds a great dewy glow. A must buy!

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Color - Mint Sorbet.

This is the best greenish nail polish shade EVER. It goes on smoothly and evenly like other Xtreme Wear nail polishes and the color is so cute. Highly recommend.

Clinique-Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector

Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector actually works!.  My pores aren't clogged anymore. Also, my skin is much softer and smoother now. I'm glad this doesn't have any fragrance because fragrance can be irritating to the skin. This product is totally worth the money. I love the way it makes my skin feel so soft and I can clearly notice a difference in my skin's appearance... especially in the sun I can tell a lot of acne spots have faded.... very impressed!!! I would recommend this product to anybody who has tried other spot correcting serums in the past. This is great for sensitive skin. Just give it a try!

Bobbi Brown Ultra Fine Eye liner brush

I purchased this brush to go along with Bobbi Brown's cream eyeliner. This brush makes the eyeliner go on like a dream. Really smooth, easy, and professional application..This is a top quality brush that I expect to get years of use out of. I think Bobbi Brown brushes are excellent quality and this one is no exception—I’d recommend it to anyone interested in it.

CLINIQUE- Almost Powder Makeup SPF 15

Clinique's Almost Powder is wonderful in quality and it provides an SPF, which is very important to me nowdays. My color, Neutral is so perfectly matched to my skin tone I use it everyday. It covers blemishes and the circles under my eyes... Sometimes I use it over my liquid foundation as a setting powder. It leaves a nice air-brushed finish when applied with a stippling brush.It's very lightweight and doesn't look like you over powdered your face. Great product. Definitely a buy.

Stila- Lip Glaze Amaretto

Stila Lip Glaze is the most comfortable lipgloss i've ever put on that still brings out excellent colors.The color lasts a long time; and it smells and tastes fabulous. The color is gorgeous, a hint of rosy pink with  tiny sparkles.

 I highly recommend it to anyone.

Too faced. Caribbean In A Compact - Snow Bunny

I love this bronzer. It is a must have for a all over face glow with out making you look like you just put on bronzer. It gives you a nice bronze glow with a little shimmer without over doing it.
I'd highly recommend this product!!

Super City Block Oil-Free Daily Face Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 40

 I am so impressed with this. I have tried different sunscreens , trying to find one that will not make me break out. It seems that all chemical sunscreens I have tried give me really large cystic acne that takes forever to heal! This clinique went on smooth and dried very quickly. It kept my oil in check most of the day and wore perfectly under my mineral makeup. The best part: no breakouts at all! I feel good knowing it has SPF 40 that will protect my fair skin from further sun damage. Sheer won't look paste-y white, but this is no foundation. Great sunscreen protection!

Benefit They're Real mascara

Benefit They're Real mascara
I Finally found the Perfect Mascara!

This mascara is amazing. The formula is more thickening than lengthening in my opinion, but I have long lashes so it's hard to tell on me. It didn't clump or flake, and one coat really did make a huge impact. Lasts all day in the sweltering humidity! The brush is great, and though you can't see from the picture has a tip that is slightly bulbous, more round than the rest of the brush - it's great for corners and tough to reach lashes. Super!

Face Finishing Moisturizer

Perricone MD

Face Finishing Moisturizer

According to the perriconemd website:
A lightweight, superior facial moisturizer formulated with powerful antioxidants to help firm skin's appearance and minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Face Finishing Moisturizer is rich in texture and feels simply wonderful on the skin, imparting a visibly radiant and smooth appearance. It's formulated with three powerful anti-aging sciences: Alpha Lipoic Acid, DMAE and Vitamin C Ester.

What I think:
I've been using this product for a couple of weeks now, and it really seems to do what it says it does. My skin looks brighter and feels well hydrated all the time. Highly recommend this product for people with combination skin that tends to get dry in the winter, although I'd be careful with sensitive skin - there must be some sort of acid in this that makes your skin a little tingly.

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner

Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner Review

According to the Bobby Brown website:

Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner gives you the look of liquid liner with the ease and feel of a gel formula. Long-wearing, water-resistant color glides on and let’s you get it just right before it dries-then stays without a smear or crease until you take it off.

What I think:
This is a great eyeliner, it lasts well through the day, it doesn't budge or smudge and even if the colour pay-off isn't that great you can work around it, or just use it for less intense looks. It is a great eyeliner for work let's say, where you want that definition without too much drama. 

Clinique Even Better Foundation

Clinique Even Better Foundation Review

The even better Makeup SPF15/PA++ oil-free and dermatologist tested by clinique combines skincare and makeup into the liquid foundation.

According to the Clinique website:
Wear oil-free, dermatologist-developed Even Better Makeup SPF 15 and something amazing happens: Without any makeup, see improved clarity, a more even skin tone, visibly diminished age spots. For all ethnicities. In just 4 to 6 weeks. For continued benefits-even after you take it off-partner with Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector.

What I think:
Works so amazingly well! Covered all my acne scars and redness. You dont really need alot of the foundation to cover your face, a little goes along way. It does give my face a glowy look but I put finishing powder to cover it because I dont want the glow to be confused with oiliness. I love how this foundation is inexpensive, evens out my skin tone well, doesn't cake, wears well throughout the day.
