Lypsyl lip balm
This powerful little product just HAD to come in great packaging didn't it?! I've tried many organic and not so organic lip care products and this one is simply the best one. The larger sized, slide-up lip balm is comparable to Bert's Bees lip products, but it seems to do a better job at totally hydrating and softening the lips. It also has more product per unit as well. Simple, long-lasting, lip care that you can find at any drug store.
Biosilk Silk Therapy
I tried this product many years ago when it first came out around the time that everyone was straightening their hair on the daily... Middle school if you were born in the early 90's or late 80's. This product has changed, and for the better! It's a lot more watery, less greasy and thick than before, and you need very little to do the job. It's also a lot more powerful and effective in protecting the hair from thermal abuse. Use it before and after you apply heat to the hair. Before, to protect it and to infuse your hair with the product, and after to add shine and silkiness. Smells great, lasts forever, and works wonderfully. Find it at some drug stores, or your local beauty supply.
Milani Eye Tech, liquid eyeliner pen
This little guy gives you the most control over lining your eyes - a task we all know to be difficult, and most of the time, messy with do-overs. The felt-tip pen is stiff, and gives off a moderate amount of product at a time making it easy to line your eyes the way you want to. You can find it at most drug stores, along with the rest of the Milani make-up line. A great basic.
My Spring-it, Facial hair remover
If you're a hair removal fan like I am, whether it be with waxing, plucking, or other torturous methods, you're going to love this. Waxing is painful, but necessary in certain places. Plucking works great for eyebrow maintenance. But when it comes to ridding your face of peach fuzz (unnecessary for most people), your upper-lip or chin, or even fore the middle of the brows, this is perfect! Waxing your face works, but it's terrible for the skin - exposure to wax and the resulting pore exposure almost ALWAYS causes break-outs and lasting irritation. This tool is gentle on the skin, pulling out about a handful of hairs at a time. Make-up application is easier and more even when the skin is totally bare. I love this thing!

Orly, Bonder base coat
Base coat is the most essential part of a long-lasting manicure, especially if you're doing it yourself. I've tried many in the past, and this one seems to be doing what it's supposed to do. Apply one coat, and make sure it's dry (which is does quickly) before applying your color. Reds and other invasive colors that tend to stain nails are kept from doing such. Found with the other Orly colors at local drug stores.
Physicians Formula, Powder Foundation
I've been interested in Physicians Formula products for a while now, but didn't know which product to try first. I have already been using a mineral liquid product that I really like, so purchasing a mineral powder was my next obligation. Many mineral liquid foundations don't set matte like I prefer my make-up to set. If you like the dewey look, then you don't need powder to set it. This product is light, and will not clog your pores. It's also hypoallergenic. I use this to set my liquid foundation, it works great, and it doesn't provoke any compensating oil production as it doesn't dry out the skin. I use a kabuki brush for application, but it does come with the brush you see in the picture above. This can be found in drug stores, or some beauty supply stores with make-up products.
