I like the fact that this is full coverage but it feels very heavy. It makes my skin oily as soon as I put it on. It transfers onto closes and anything else my face touches. By the end of the day my skin looks very cakey in certain areas.
Liquid -Yves Saint Laurent - TEINT RESIST Long Wear Transfer Resistant Foundation

I normally use Bare Minerals but wanted to switch to a liquid for the winter time. This foundation does stay put. I work in harsh elements (extreme heat, cold, humidity) and it doesn't budge. Even though it is winter, I do have to blot half way thru the day. The coverage is buildable and looks very natural. I just use my fingertips. I find that you have to work fast because it sets quickly.
I LOVE these eyeliners. They are the creamiest pencil liner I have ever used. They just glide on very smoothly. The eyeliner stays put and doesn't smudge or slide. Very well worth the price. AWESOME!
Clump city!!!! This clumps so bad. It gives me spider lashes. Totally not worth the money!
This product has firmed the skin around my eye. I don't have wrinkles yet so I can't say if it diminishes the look of lines. I don't see that it changes the color of my dark circles. They are still there. I do like the way my skin feels under my eye when I use this. It definitely feels more firm. The pump is great for application.
This palette is great! The colors are beautiful. You can create so many looks from the palette. The shadows are great quality and have good pigment. The price is great for the value.
This serum really does work. My lashes are not long or thick. I do see a noticeable difference when I use this serum. However, I do not like the mascara with the base coat. I find it to clump my lashes and the mascara and base really dry out. I will buy this serum again. It worked for me after about 5-7 days. Great product!
Mascara -L'Oreal - Double Extend Mascara with Lash Boosting Serum

The serum is wonderful. I feel it really works well. My lases are almost non existent and the serum really does make my lashes more noticeable. The mascara with the base is horrible. I find it to be very clumpy. It dried out very fast as well. I will buy the serum again, but not the mascara.
My skin does feel more clear and tight after using this product. I have very oily skin and I find this mask helps control oil without drying or irritation. My pores do appear slightly smaller after I use this mask, but they do not stay that way. There really is not a bad smell, it is not harsh and very gentle.
Cleansers -Boscia - MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil

This removes all my makeup really well. I feel it doesn't rinse off well. I don't feel comfortable just using this as a cleanser like I can with MAC Cleanse Off Oil.
Makeup Brushes -Sephora - Professionnel Platinum Air Brush #55

This product is easy to fill and use. What is not good about it is the retractable part. You have to unscrew the bottom and stick your finger in the tube to pull the brush down inside. Your finger gets powder on it and your powder gets bacteria from your finger. It is not a good design.
This brush cleaner cleanses well. It doesn't seem to strip brushes from their natural oils. It cleans pretty well. I have to wash my eye liner brushes twice to get them fully clean. I don't really like the spray packaging. I find I have to use a lot of pumps to get the brushes clean.
I love this mask! It is so hydrating and works wonders! The smell is AMAZING!!! It stays in my hair all day too. My hair feels so soft and healthy after I use the mask. It feels great days after too. It is not very heavy at all. My hair is very fine and it does way my hair down.
Conditioner -Bain de Terre - Green Meadow Conditioner

My hair is chemically treated and fine. My hair is not dry or damaged. I was not overly impressed by this conditioner. It is not very thick. I prefer Tresemme to this and for the price I paid, it is a much better bargain. I had much higher hopes after reading some reviews.
This shampoo is alright. It doesn't work any better than my Tresemme shampoo and Tresemme is much cheaper. The smell is nice. I was just disappointed in the quality because of the price. I can buy a shampoo for $3-5 and get the same results.
