Best brows for your buck

For $3 you can't really beat this brow kit. It works better than most I've tried. I think it is basically equal in quality to Benefit Brow Zing which is obviously pricier!

I have sparse, semi-light brows and this is perfect for giving them a bit of oomph. Very buildable if you want a more dramatic look.

One of my all time favorites

I know that Dandelion is a highlighter/finishing powder, but I am very pale and so I will often use it as regular blush. I'm a huge fan of the color, it looks like "natural glow" on me. It smells great, too. After applying liberally to the apples of my cheeks, I brush a bit on my nose, forehead, and chin as intended. Very glowy.

Very Good

I don't know if my struggle over the years to find a great mascara is because I'm getting older and my lashes aren't what they used to be... but I am never fully satisfied with a mascara, really. That said, Million Lashes is by far the best one I've tried in years.

It doesn't get overly clumpy or leave me with smudges in the afternoon, and it does do a good job lengthening. I love the design of the brush, too - it doesn't get gunked up. I would like more volume from it, but otherwise it's really good.

Great BB Cream But Only for Some People

I've been using Dr. Jart BB creams ever since I first heard about the Korean BB cream craze years ago. They don't make me break out like so many other similar products do. Water Fuse is my favorite, but I'm going to try the newer V7 variety as well, this weekend.

These BB creams are definitely not for everyone. They come in one shade only. It's light with a warm undertone. I have cool undertones, but the water fuse still works well for me because it's lighter than the other Dr. Jart creams and the coverage is very light as well. I only use a small amount because I prefer VERY light coverage. I'll still use some concealer if I have a blemish, but this BB cream is a good base and improves the appearance of my pores quite a bit.
