Maybelline Fit Me! shine-free Foundation Stick in Porcelain
Originally, I purchased this thinking it was a concealer. I generally steer clear of foundations but I've really been enjoying this one. The foundation is very light weight, super creamy and blendable; plus, it's in a stick tube. Application is effortless and it leaves great shine-free results behind.

Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer in Celestial
I heard a lot of hype about these; when I saw a huge display at Walgreens, I couldn't say no. This product is a cross between a lip gloss & lipstick. It feels & smells good, but it kind of dries my lips out. It's good for occasional wear.

Wet 'n' Wild Color Icon Blusher in Heather Silk
I wish I discovered this sooner! I've been using Tarte Tipsy blush for months now but I wanted something a little darker and a lot cheaper. Wet n Wild is one of my favorite super cheap brands. The pigmentation & staying power of this blush is just as good as the Tarte blush. A little bit of product goes a long way! Unfortunately, the packaging isn't that great. (The powder broke & I had to repress it... as you can see in the picture.)
