If you've tried these, let me know your thoughts!
Dr. Brandt Oxygen Facial--Sephora--I shared this yesterday on my Odd & Unusual Masks post. I saw this after seeing it on so many blogs. I love it, and it works well, but I can't justify that price tag to purchase again.
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation--Beautylish.com--This is already being heralded as THE top foundation for 2016, and it only came out here last month. What makes it magic? It can work on any skin type: acne, scarring, mature, etc. On my dry skin, this looks like a regular foundation, nothing fancy. I really have to hydrate to use it. I don't like the applicator because it's so goopy.
Fiona Styles Corrector, Foundation, and Volumizing Mascara--ULTA--Just like Ms. Tilbury above, Fiona Styles is a celeb makeup artist. I've been following her career for years and love her product suggestions, so I was excited when this was released last month. She has a full range of products, of which I chose 3.
- Corrector--very creamy but prone to creasing
- Foundation--Despite "luminous" being in the title, it wears very similar on me to the Magic Foundation. It doesn't look great on my dry skin, but it's workable as long as I use oil on my face first to prep it.
- Mascara--This wears and looks just like L'Oreal Voluminous on me, but for a much higher price.
Honest Beauty Everything Tinted Moisturizer--ULTA--Apparently I was on a celeb-product kick last month. Started by actress Jessica Alba, as a continuation of her Honest care line for kids, I found a lot of the products to be geared towards oily skin, which is great. This tinted moisturizer goes on thick and well, and reminds me of a really expensive one from Koh Gen Doh. But it has to be reapplied every couple of hours or the product is gone. That is understandable, as the more natural a product is, the less is lasts. Not a bad thing at all, but sometimes I don't want to constantly reapply.
L'Oreal Butterfly Sculpt--Target--Finally something from the drugstore in this list! This is just okay on me. While I love the original Butterfly, this wand is a little hard to work with. It's not bad, just not my go-to.
MAC So Select Lipstick--MAC Online--MAC started their own rewards program, and one "perk" is that you could get this shade, only for Select members. It's a gorgeous matte color (I have swatches and more in the video that is currently uploading) but looks very similar to MAC Twig, which I already own.
Too Faced Peanut Butter Jelly Palette--TooFaced.com--How cute is this palette? I love it. I'm wearing it in the video below, but it isn't a must-have for me. It smells like peanuts and is perfect for travel though.
And here's a video I made for you (currently uploading) where I go into more detail:

- If you were unable to comment yesterday, I'm sorry about that! Not sure what happened, but glad it is fixed! Now go get caught up! ;)
- I couldn't sleep last night, so lots of coffee and water for today. I've got another long work day--I get home around 8 and then blog until midnight!
