Not only will this lightweight tinted moisturizer provide your skin with a sheer hint of color that is dewy and healthy, it also leave your skin hydrated and oh-so soft.
The Prettiest Blush
Who hasn't heard of the renowned Orgasm? Of course, we are referring to this peachy pink blush powder with subtle hints of gold that creates a soft, convincing flush and looks amazing on pretty much everyone. Sweep lightly for day, and build it up for night.

Shiny and Gorgeous
While the deep burgundy color looks downright goth straight out of the tube, this crimson lipstick goes on almost translucent. A beautiful color that looks great on almost everyone, the results are simply gorgeous.
The 8-Hour Blessing
Similar to petroleum jelly in texture, but much easier to blend, this thick salve is a blessing for highly irritated skin. Not only does it soothe and smooth cracked and dry skin, it can also be used for a quick burst of moisture when slicked on lips, lids and pretty much anywhere else you'd like.
The Perfect Blend
Its unique shape enables you to reach into all corners of the eyes and nose for a seamless and flawless finish. Which is why it's no secret that this little pink sponge is carried by every important makeup artist in the industry.
The Only Hairspray
This widely acclaimed hairspray was rumored to have been smuggled from Paris by the top hairstylists before it became available in the U.S. Giving the ultimate light finish without that shellacked effect, this spray is a serious game/hair changer.
Truth in Advertising
Finally, some truth in advertising, this pink and green tube is simply the number one mascara for everyday use. Providing a glossy-borderline-wet tint without ever going brittle, this fabulous mascara will help you achieve that full-on glam look with just a couple of swipes.
Less Is More
And now to wash it all off, keeping your skin clean without worry of irritation, Cetaphil is widely known for its less-is-more approach. Praised by most dermatologists for its gentle solution, this lotion-like cleanser has been recommended as the number one makeup remover for years.
