  2. I love the Loreal HiP brand too! I also love Milani and the new CoverGirl enhancers eyeshadows in super vibrant colors.

    cetaphil, c.g.lashblast, maybelline moisture stay l/s, l’oreal decrease.

  4. Melinda

    The Almay Smart-shade tinted SPF foundation has been my choice all this summer.

    And, not quite makeup, but I can’t say enough about Clean and Clear’s updated line of skincare. The STEAM shower scrub is amazing, much like Prescriptive’s, and the DAY and NIGHT lotions are also incredible. I find I need less makeup if I have beautiful skin!

    Revlon 3D extreme mascara(I love love love thick lashes and this mascara is like Lancome’s Hypnose). L’Oréal HIP eyeshadows (So pigmented ans the colors are vibrant!In Canada we only have the eyeshadows ). Cover Girl AmazeMint( non-sticky and super refreshing!) And Nyx eyeshadows and pencils.

    I just bought two Quo Double Decker Pallets, I think thats what they are called..anyway, they are gorgeous! The eyeshadows are super smooth and pigmented, and the blushes that came with them are sooo pretty! I am really happy with them and they were only $20 canadian.

    I also love Rimmels Glam Eyes mascara, it gives me amazing lashes!

    I really hated lashblast, I thought it was crap.

    Oh ya, and Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser, is th best thing to have happened to my face!

  11. I like Almay Smart Shade Blush- I have the pink, berry, and natural shades and they are all great colors on me… they have a nice blendable consistency and look really ‘fresh’ on my face, more natural than powder or thicker cream blushes tend to look.

    Nivea “A Kiss Of Flavor” passion fruit flavored balm is GREAT, it gives my lips a very flattering violet/ berry tint and tastes yummy (which is good because I chew my lips when I’m stressed).

    I use two L’Oreal HiP duos a lot- Wicked (antique gold and drak purple) and Gilded (gold and dark brown/ gold glitter). I have a lot of other HiP products but these two are my favorites.

    I also like to pick up a new Sinful nail polish whenever I go to the the store, they’re so cheap and they have great hard-to-find colors.

    Physician’s Formula Organic Wear bronzer in Healthy Glow has become my daily staple. It’s perfect for fair skin and is really gentle too. I also like their new e/s for brown eyes…the highlight color is really versatile and pretty, not too unique but I wear mostly neutrals, so it’s good for me.

    I also like the Loreal Color of Hope products. I don’t like the regular Loreal e/s but the LE quads have been really great to me.

  13. I LOVE maybelline full & soft mascara! I wear it everyday pretty much. If I wear a diff mascara its usually to layer over THIS one lol.
    AND NYX eye shadow singles are the best! I hear the doll eyes mascara is great too though! Ive yet to try it

    I LOVE CG LASH BLAST! I have the wierdest lashes and after trying tons of mascaras with no luck, this has become my HG! I also love tons of other drugstore products…these are some that I use all the time…L’oreal HIP Jellies and Cream Eyeliner in Teal, Revlon Illuminance Cream Eyeshadows, Rimmel Kajal Eyeliners, Blistex Silk & Shine, Neutrogena Pore Refining Toner, St. Ives Apricot Scrub, Oil of Olay Complete Moisturizer, Keri Lotion…and list goes onnn…

    Boots 17 lip glosses, Barry M Dazzle dusts, GOSH eyeshadows & foundation, L’Oreal lipsticks, Maybelline lipstick :) I’m trying to find a drugstore (Covergirl isn’t available in the UK) brand of mascara which gives me the volume and length of Benefit BadGal lash but for less than £15 ($30) as money is really tight at the moment.
    My friend brought me back Covergirl lashblast from her trip to the states and it’s GREAT but I can’t buy a replacement :(
