I love this mascara. I fell in love with the cover girl and maxfactor versions and I love this one even more. It seems to clump a little less and doesn't dry out as fast in the tube so I don't have to buy it as frequently. It defines my lashes beautifully and I'm a picky mascara person. Great product!!!
I love this stuff! It smells great and gives my skin a nice soft sheen without feeling greesy. It gives just a hint of color with one application. What I like about these gradual self tanners is that they are subtle so that if you miss a spot it won't be noticable and each time you apply you will cover the spots you missed before, creating a more even appearence. I also like this one a little more than the Jergens natural glow because it seems to take less time to dry and leaves a less greesy feeling.
I normally don't like musky smelling perfumes but when I smelled this one there was just something in it that made me want to buy it so I could keep smelling it. It smells romantic, spicy and sexy all in one. I love it!

I agree with the people who say this mascara gets clumpy. I know some women that love it and some that don't. I'm one that doesn't. This mascara seems to so better for women that have shorter lashes. Longer lashes tend to make mascara clump more simply because there's more area to clump and as the brush glides up your lashes it starts drying on the wand, which is part of what causes clumps. I would advise women with shorter lashes to try this. It does a great job at making your lashes stand out, but ladies with longer lashes stay away!!!
Since I'm trying to save money for my wedding coming up I've had to get on a tight budget. Meaning I had to start buying cheaper makeup for one. I had heard good things about Revlon Colorstay products being great for the price. First I tried the eye and blemish conceilers and loved both. They didn't crease or run for hours and did not break me out. I tried the foundation for combo/oily skin and was impressed. It seemed to work just as well as my MAC makeup. The conceiler actually worked a little better in my opinion. All 3 of these products are worth giving a try.

I was using Amazing Cosmetics conceiler. It's the best but it costs about $40.00 a tube. I ran out of it a couple weeks ago and I was broke so I tried Revlon and for the price I loved it. It covers well and has minimal running and creasing compared to most drug store brands. I have oily skin and am prone to break outs but it didn't clog my pores or cause any more blemishes than usual.

My hair is naturally wavy when it's cut shorter and sometimes I like to give it a rest instead of heat styling it every day. So I'll just use something to define my waves and let it air dry. This product does a good job of defining and adding texture without feeling to dry. It has a more natural feel to it.

To me, this product is comparable to the Mary Kay microderm scrub. It has a very similar texture but the grains are a tiny bit bigger, however the price is much smaller. It hasn't made my pores noticably smaller but I didn't expect it too. No topical product can work miricles. It has helped keep my pores from clogging as badly and has made my skin smoother. I would definitely buy this product again.
The comment below by Kelly is by my mom. We swap makeup all the time and I ended up with her blush. Well she's not getting it back because I love it!Nars blushes in general are great because of their smooth texture and staying power and this color is perfect for me but it also looks great on other skin tones because my mom is darker with more golden undertones than me.
Lip Treatments -Clinique - Superbalm Lip Treatment

This is a decent, basic lip balm. The only problem is that it contains spearmint which can been irritating. It doesn't bother my skin but it can other's.
This is an old one but a good one! Great basic acne treatment. I use it all over my face. Even though it comes in a small tube it's cheap enough to keep buying and it really keeps my skin clear.
I don't care what magazine told you to go buy this mascara (because many of them have) but this stuff sucks big time! It builds minimal length and thickness and runs after only a couple hours of wear. You really do get what you pay for in this case!
This is one of my favorite cheap mascaras along with Loreal Feather Lash. I swear it works as well, if not better than many of the more expensive brands I've tried.
