And i strongly believe its worth to try.

 The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash
The Body Shop ($8.63) on Sale online.
This cleanser is one of my old time favorites!
I remember i used to use in my first year of high school and it used to help my skin alot.
This cleanser really did good job to clear up my acne, it will stop any new pimple to come out .
 its a really good cleanser to check out , i mean they didnt list it as a best seller on their website for nothing.


 Make Up 

 Maybelline The Falsies Volum Express Mascara
Target ($5.94)
Oh my..i used this mascara ALOT this year
i cant remember how many times i bought it..like really, i used it alot.
What i love about this mascara is that if i feel like going for that natural look eyelashes
it will give me that, same if i feel like showing off my lashes like i have a fake lashes on, it will make my eyelashes look like i have a fake lashes on! i just really love it and i definitely recommend it.

 Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer
Walmart ($7.94)
Im that girl who just want something quick and easy that will make me look awake!
and this concealer does the job, its easy to blend, and it really gives me that natural look, like i have no concealer on, which is what i like.
I use this almost everyday, no complains,it doesnt crease, it stays on for long time.
definitely worth the try.

 L'oreal True Match Super Blendable Crayon Concealer
Target ($7.99)
its such an amazing concealer to cover my acne scars and spots
i will get into details  in separate review soon.

♠ NYX High Definition Photo Concealer Wand
Ulta ($4.99)
I tried this concealer once, and i fell in love with it and since then i cant find it in my local Ulta (Story of me life lol)
Its easy to blend, the coverage is amazing its kind similar to the L'oreal concealer i talked about above.
I really recommend it ,and if i find my shade,i will for sure repurchase it again.

♠ Maybelline Fit Me Shine Free Foundation Stick
Target ($6.99)
I dont really use foundation all the time, but i remember i used this alot this year at work
when i just want to even out my skin tone a bit
Its light to medium coverage, it does have a good lasting power
So overall its a really nice daily foundation.

♠ Maybelline Eye Studio Master Precise Ink Pen Eyeliner
Target ($6.49)
Im in love with this eyeliner, you can make a thin line or thick line
And i remember whenever i wear it i get lots of compliments on how black it is!
its really worth every penny, and one more thing, it last for really long time.

♠ Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
Target ($3.97)
Im sure most of you heared about this one, everyone was raving about it all over the internet
and i can see why, its amazing , its on budget, it makes you matte for long time!
you cant beat that, and i will forsure repurchase it.
P.S i do prefer this one than (Maybelline Dream Matte Powder) it last longer and it looks more natural.

♠ N.Y.C. Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder Sunny
CVS ($2.79)
Everyone was talking about this bronzer as a duper for benefit hoola bronzer
so i decided to give it a try, and yes they're very similar!
One thing is that Hoola is slightly darker, other than that its all good
they blend the same color, the same lasting power.
So i definitely agree that this is a dupe, and i really recommend you check it out.

♠ Wet N Wild Sweet As Candy 
CVS ($2.99)
I love their eyeshadows! its pigmented, it last for long time, and its great for the price!
my favorites palettes is Sweet As Candy, Walking On Eggshells and Im Getting Sunburned
these are my top three for this year, and i really recommend you check out their eyeshadows.

♠ Nail Polish

♠ Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Polish In Mint Sorbet
CVS ($3.19)
I can talk forever about how much i love this nail polish color!
Its amazing! its bright but not too much, its neon, its great for Spring/Summer time
one coat is enough ,its good price, ahh i just really love it
and when ever i go and find it i buy one cause its really hard to find it in my local drugstore!
they always run out of it.

♠ Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Polish In Pacific Blue
CVS ($3.19)
This one is like a perfect blue nail polish for me!i love how its bright enough to pop
and dark enough to give you that beautiful reflect.
I remember everytime i used this and went to work, people will compliment me about it
such a beautiful color, cant wait to rock it again this Spring/Summer.

♠ Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Polish In Flirt

Love Love Love this color, it is a dark plum color
i never though i would like such a color
but i decided to give it a try, its really a beautiful color and it will reflect your skin tone in a very pretty way.

♠ Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Polish In Cherry Red
Walgreens ($2.79)
I love this type of red, this one its not very dark & not very light
somewhere in between, such a beautiful color.


My favorite candle of the year must be

Im in love with this from the bottom of my heart
its such a beautiful ,fresh, cozy scent
and now i dont know what im going to do with my life

I hope next year they will bring it back, cause its really a unique ,beautiful scent.
