Quickly becoming my favourite polishes.

I bought my first GOSH nail polish last year, and I've quickly accumulated eleven more since then. Gorgeous colours, usually opaque in two coats, lasts days on me. Also, cheap! I call this a nail polish triumph.

My go-to concealer, year-round.

This stuff is insane. It illuminates, it conceals, you need the TINIEST bit (it's so thick it's like spackle). I apply a dot of Erase Paste to the sides of my nose, under each eye and on any blemishes I might have. Evens my skin out beautifully. I'm sure you could get away with just this and an illuminating tinted moisturizer or a mineral powder in the summer - no foundation needed. Also, have I mentioned how little you need? This will last forever. Keep that in mind when you're debating over whether or not this tiny pot of magic is worth the price. It is.

The lip balm problem-solver.

Here's the problem I have with most lip balms: four minutes after I apply them I'm usually like 'hey, maybe I should put some more lip balm on'. My lips aren't dry, but they feel like they need the balm all the time. Here's the solution: ELF Therapeutic Conditioning lip balm. At fist swipe it feels a bit greasier than other lip balms, but it settles in better than any I've tried. If you put too much on at once you get a bit of white film, but I just rub that in with my fingers. So cheap, so effective. Once I've used up all my chapsticks I am stocking up on these.

I am a nail-polish fanatic, and LASplash makes some great bright and unique colours. They are pretty pigmented, I can usually get away with two coats for them to be opaque. Staying power is pretty good too. If you're like me and you go through a thousand colours on your nails in the summertime, you have met your match.

Note: The colour I've shown here is not in the swatch display list, it's called Dolphin's Smile.

These are exceptional!

I have two of them, Flatter Me and Stiletto. It's important for me to have products that don't crease on my big, deep-set eyes. To find this quality in a cream shadow is unbelievable! The biggest trick for these, though, is applying a light layer. If you load it on, it will crease. I wear my Benefit creaseless cream shadows over an eye primer and they last for ten hours on me, crease-free.
