At the end of '09, i posted a list of products that i LOVED. mid-way through 2010, some changes have been made so i decided to update this post. i'll mention those items im searching for replacements for as well. you will find replacement products in (red) and additional products in (green)


wash- cetaphil daily facial cleanser (looking to change. i plan to try PURPOSE. also open to suggestions for other gentle cleansers)

foundation- mac studio fix fluid SPF15 NC50

powder- mineralize skinfinish dark

shine control- mac blot powder (mac prep and prime transparent finishing powder) (loreal studio secrets magic perfecting base)
i'm thinking about going back to blot powder simply because i can carry it for touch-ups throughout the day. also, the translucent powder is only so translucent as it's white and sometimes can leave my skin looking ashy.

primer- smashbox photofinish light (loreal studio secrets magic perfecting base)

exfoliator- mac volcanic ash exfoliator

makeup remover- mac cleanse off oil (lancome bi-facil, baby wipes)


mascara- maybelline colossal lash
i no longer really have a favorite for this category. ive started sorta collecting different mascaras and i like them all for different reasons. i will say that many of them clump but i havent really found a mascara that doesnt yet. if i do, it will become my favorite of all time.

brow grooming kit- ecotools

shadow- mac (make up for ever)

liner- MUFE pencils/ maybelline liquid liner/ mac fluidline

makeup remover- still searching...

lip- mac cremesheen glass ("over indulgence" is the only one i have but id like to get MORE)


lotion- jergens natural glow firming (for summer) (looking to replace this. the scent is annoying to me now)/ vaseline clinical therapy (for winter)

shave gel- skintimate strawberry tangerine twist with olive butter and vitamin E

antiperspirant- clinique deodorant (this quit on me so im looking for a replacement)

after workout body wash- dr bronner's liquid soap

soap- dove white bar


pigment- mac

natural products- aloe vera juice and gel, rose water, glycerin (coconut oil)


heat protector- tresemme thermal creations heat tamer spray

moisturizer- silk elements silken child moisturizing creme

scalp care- roots of nature shea butter green tea stimulating scalp oil

leave-in- optimum care tangle defense

protein treatment- aphogee 2-min reconstructor (not really doing protein treatments anymore)

moisturizing conditioner- neutrogena triple moisture deep recovery mask

clarifying shampoo- V05 (dont like how stripped my hair is when i use clarifying shampoos so this is gone now)

conditioner for co-wash- V05 extra body volumizing conditioner

shampoo and conditioner- im still testing out different kinds. im kinda liking creme of nature but im undecided. i usually like something for a while and then want something else so i'll probably never settle on anything in this category.
