All Purpose Products

e.l.f Cosmetics makes some all purpose products. I bought two different ones at Target recently.  Each product only cost one dollar. (Which is already a plus!)

All Over Cover Stick in Pink Lemonade:

This cream stick can be used as an eyeshadow, blush, or lipstick. The color is a bit darker than I would think "Pink Lemonade" would look like. I would say it's more of a berry color. It's still very pretty non-the-less.
The color is perfect for eyeshadow, blush, and lipstick.
e.l.f is a great product and one, if not the most affordable cosmetic products.

Shimmering Facial Whip in Lilac Petal:

I absolutely love this  product. I like this manly for a bit of shimmer on my cheek bone, a highlight on my brow bone, and to create a pouty look for your lips. I do this by applying a small amount on the center of my lips.
This product is great for that fresh dewy look.

Overall, I am really impressed with these all purpose products.

Maybelline Dream Nude AirFoam

I already love the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation, so when I cam across the new Dream Nude   AirFoam foundation, I just had to try it.
The idea behind this product is a lightweight foam foundation for a flawless foundation. An ideal foundation for normal skin.

The packaging reminds me of what a spray on tanner comes in. 
The foundation is like a foam/mousse, which feels very lightweight. 
The coverage is light to medium, so if you  are looking for a fuller coverage, you might be better off purchasing the Dream Matte Mousse instead.
I love the look and feel of this foundation. There's SPF 16 to protect your skin, and it blends very well for a very natural finish.

Montagne Jeunesse

You've seen this product around even if you think you haven't. You may have even tried it.
The name is a mouthful, but the product is great!

The price is about a $1.99, and can be found in stores such as drugstores or Kmart. I started using these about four or five years ago. My face always feels much smoother after I use these. I'll link their site below, because there are a lot of different products to try out. I always wanted to try one of the hair products out,  but never did. If you have tried one of the hair products, let me know what you thought of it in a comment!
I must have no shame for showing you the following pictures...gulp... Well, here's proof I use these.

      Product Review

I really love this product.
It's very affordable and can be easily found.
The blush is very blend-able and comes in many great shades.
It applies evenly to the skin, and is natural looking as well.
I found myself needing to reapply it after a few hours, but other than that I have no complaints.

Spring Nail Polishes

Revlon - Jaded
Essie - Sugar Daddy
OPI - Purple With A Purpose
Sally Hansen - It's Chiff-on!
