Products I Love!!

I've recently been transitioning out of Mary Kay (for the simple reason that my mom isn't going to sell it anymore), and trying to figure out exactly what to use.

I'm still on the hunt for a good primer, foundation, and powder for my oil drenched face (any suggestions??), but here are a few things that I've fallen in LIKE LIKE with!

Blond eyebrow pencil. My poor blond eyebrows are invisible without this business. This pencil goes on well, looks natural, and is inexpensive (Ulta $8).

Sharpener. This Ulta sharpener works well, is super light, and keeps all of the shavings neatly inside the snap on lid (Ulta $2.50).

 Gel eyeliner. This liner goes on smoothly, stays on all day, and comes off easily at night (Ulta $8).

Loreal Voluminous Mascara. This is the BEST ever! Check out that brush. It's unlike anything I've ever tried. It's almost soft plastic-y (which sounds weird, but is ridiculously awesome when you think about it). It doesn't clump, it goes on easily, and it looks great...if I do say so myself (Ulta $8.99).

Trader Joe's Tea Tree Face Wash. Tea tree doesn't have the best smell, but I love this stuff!

 TIGI Catwalk Straight Collection Sleek Mystique. I spray this stuff on before I dry my hair. It seriously helps make it (and keep it) straight. I'm a HUGE fan (Amazon $10.19)! 

Flat Iron Spray by Garnier Fructis. This stuff is CHEAP, but it works SO much better than any of the expensive stuff I've tried. Just spray it on before you straighten your hair and it helps keep it smooth, sleek, and straight (don't remember the exact price, but it's under $5)

Neutrogena Eye Makeup Remover. I didn't think anything could work as well as the Mary Kay eye makeup remover on my waterproof mascara, but let me tell you, THIS STUFF WORKS! I LOVE it (Amazon $10.24--but under $10 at Ulta, I believe). 

Trader Joes's Refresh body wash.  I LOVE the smell, the feel, the everything of this (TJ's under $5).

Gold Bond Men's Lotion. This. Is. Seriously. Amazing. We all know Gold Bond is awesome lotion, but I'm not a huge fan of the smell. The men's version, however, smells AWESOME (Amazon $7.19)!!

What products do you love? Any suggestions for me?

I use the generic baby lotion that Albertsons sells....it swords for all over. I have extremely sensitive skin and this one is great on my face especially.
The vasaline spray works really well.
FROM Trader Joes I use their 3 herbal soaps in the shower as well as their facial soap that works as a cleanser and exfoliant.
Taaaaaa Daaaaaa
