I love makeup and trying new things, but I'm still learning! I have a five-year-old son, a husband, a cat, and some fish. I've been overweight all my life and I'm working my butt off one day at a time. I've always had a lot of hate for my body and my looks, but I'm learning to love and care for myself now in my mid-thirties. I'm drinking more water, eating better, working out, and learning to use makeup and fix my hair. I'm on a journey!
There's a reason that this has been a favorite for so long, it's the best. It leaves my skin feeling silky soft and it removes all of my make up easily without tugging. I like to follow up with some soap just to make sure my pores don't clog, and it does contain mineral oil. So if you are sensitive to that you might not want to use this. If you are not this is a great choice.
This is my husband's absolute favorite deodorant, partially because it has a dumb name. He is actually super amused by it and thinks it's great and refuses to buy anything else. It smells nice enough and keeps him from being a stink machine. What more can a lady ask for?
I don't use make up wipes all that often, I don't think they are good for your skin and they can tug at things around your eye to harshly. So these are fine for occasional use and they do the job when I have to use one.
These are absolutely fine they do the job. I am not a big fan of make up wipes I think that they are too harsh on your face, but sometimes I do need one and these do the job. I'm not inclined to purchase these on a regular basis simply because they are not great for your skin.

I purchased my set at TJ Maxx for below retail, making this an excellent buy for me. Of course I can always use more facial sponges so those are basically not the main event here. The brushes are nice and I highly recommend this set to add to your collection if you see it. Real techniques are my most recommended budget brush. They're soft and always get the job done.
This is my favorite deodorant next to dove. It's always been my go to, and I like the way it keeps me dry and unstinky. It doesn't seem to mark my clothing, but I have never had an issue with that. I have certainly put this to the test in my swampy gulf coast weather and it holds up well for over 12 hours.
Purchases at Nordstrom's rack, it will be so much cheaper. This is a really neat idea with the transformer shades that allow you to change the bases. For example you can combine a matte white highlight with a shimmer topper to create a shimmer highlight. This pallet can be mixing matched into almost anything. I would definitely recommend this for someone who wants an all in one kit for everything but concealer and foundation. This contains bronzer, Contour, highlight, Cheek color, eyelid color, and lip color.

I actually don't do a whole lot of color correcting, but I do use these brushes for blending concealer. I don't like to wash my brushes every day so this is helpful. Of course I can always use more sponges so bonus there. However I can't really speak to using for color correcting with all four. I only color correct with apricot for some hyper pigmentation I have. And these do blend that out perfectly. I don't think I know anybody who does the color correcting on this level though. So I imagine that these are just a good all-around brushes to add to your collection if you find them for cheaper. I purchased mine at TJ Maxx for less than retail.
