Me too. I love that tingly feeling too, when I put it on. Then I know it's going in my pores like it should and cleaning them out. I love that tingly sensation.

I love Wet n' Wild nail polishes too.
Another cheap makeup brand ($1, can't beat that) is E.L.F. Their stuff is surprisingly not bad for only being a $1. They have different lines that cost a little more but still super cheap.

My new obsession is Hard Candy makeup. If you're a fan of Urban Decay, this is very similar but much more affordable. I believe they're sister companies.

It's getting harder to find good, cheap products since I've decided to only use cruelty-free beauty products.

also on mineral oil:
I've been using baby oil as my eye make-up forever, but I LOVE the olive oil idea. I'm going to try this tonight when I get home from work.

I've also heard olive oil makes a wonderful treatment for the hair, but I've never tried that either.

Mix sugar with some lemon juice and scrub your hands with it; you won't believe how smooth they feel! Heard that on Dr. Oz.

a little bit of vaseline, and sugar mixed together as a lip scrub/exfoliant.

aspirin as an exfoliant (if I'm out of my usual scrub), or a spot treatment for acne.

tooth paste as a spot treatment for acne.

olive oil for lash conditioning (carefully!)

conditioner for shaving (actually works better than shaving cream, for me/imo)

oatmeal for a body/facial scrub (I have occasional psoriasis on my legs, so it helps with that, too!)
