    9. A compact cat's wink clear pact powder that just may give your skin the soft look you've been dreaming of (reviewers with oily skin swear by it).

    Promising review: "At 36, with still quite oily skin, I've used a metric ton of powders out there. Drugstore, department, and boutique brands; from $5 to who knows how stupidly overpriced. I just got this and it blows everything else I've used out of the water! My skin is very oily, especially in the T-zone. So even though this pact is marketed for teen skin, it's perfect for me! It looks and feels soft and realistically matte. With the rest of my regimen, this also helps my pores be less noticeable. And moreover, this powder keeps the soft look for hours! I've never had a powder last so long. Ever." —Call of KthaliaTop

    Promising review: "I ordered these pants in gray a few years ago and still wear them. They were always one of my favorites. I decided to order a second pair a couple of weeks ago, this time in black. The gray pair was more of a T-shirt cotton material, and the black pants are more silky. I love them both! They are so amazingly comfortable, and they look beautiful on. They are long but I really like that. I'm 5'5", 125 lbs. and ordered the small. They are perfect!" —Kathryn
