LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product! It is my HG mascara and the only one I need to use. It get my lashes voluminous without leaving clumps and it doesn't irritate my contact lens' eyes, even after an 8 hour day. Worth the price!!! Haven't found anything better.

Although I only gave this 3 lippies, it is one of the best mascaras I have tried so far, especially for my sensitive, contact wearing eyes. It lenthens, seperates, and volumizes my lashes beautifully. However, the reason for the lower marks is because after about two months, I have seen a change in that more clumps appear on my brush and I have to be very careful or the clumps will end up on my lashes. It seems to dry up quickly which may be a problem since it is expensive to begin with.
Eyeliner -Bare Escentuals - Buxom Insider Eyeliner

I do like the BE lashliner better, but for those who have had the problem with this eyeliner migrating like I did, try it with the Prime Time eyelid primer. This eyeliner will now stay on all day (over 12 hours) without so much as a smudge. It doesn't irritate my overly sensitive eyes and it is quicker to apply and more natural looking than the lash liner.

Love, love, love this product! My absolute FAV gel eyeliner. I wear contacts and my eyes get really irritated with anything other than hypoallergenic products like Almay, Clinique, or Neutragena. Unfortunately, those products lack staying power. Since I already wear Bare Minerals, I decided to try this. I put it on after applying the Prime Time eyelid primer since I have oily eyelids, and this stuff can outlast my 12 hours days. The best part...it doesn't irritate my eyes! I will definitely buy again!
Treatments -L'Oreal - Everpure Moisture Deep Restorative Masque

Doesn't work for me. After using the EP Shampoo this keeps my hair looking frizzy and dry, even after leaving it in for 5 minutes
Conditioner -L'Oreal - Everpure smooth conditioner

Does not put any moisturizer in my hair, after using the EverPure Shampoo this keeps my hair looking frizzy and dry.
Nothing like purology. This completely dried my hair out, even with the EverPure conditioner and EverPure Masque my hair felt and looked extremely dry! Personally, I would rather have a bit of color fading than hair that looks fried.
Blush -Bare Escentuals - Warmth All Over Face Color

This product is too dark for my fair complexion and I can only use a very small amount, it is difficult to get it right. I like BE Warm Radiance better. I will finish the container but will not repurchase.
Powder -Bare Escentuals - Feather Light Mineral Veil

I like this product better than the regular mineral veil. It has tiny sparkles, but unless you are right up close, it just gives off a nice dewey complexion.
Powder -Bare Escentuals - Bare Minerals Foundation #2

I have found my HG foundation! When I first bought this product in a light kit, I was disappointed that the colors were a bit dark for my fair complexion and therefore, did not cover well. I found that they sold a color "Fair" out of the kit that matches my face much better. Again I was disappointed because I felt the coverage was too sheer and caused my skin to flake, then I learned how to use it! I begin with moisturizer, then primer (I use Smashbox Photo Finish) then I apply it as a concealer with the max coverage concealer brush, then I put it all over with the Max Coverage Face Brush (It is a brush that doesn't come in a kit but can be bought seperately and is almost like a regular foundation brush) with this brush I pat, not buff on the foundation and my rosacae and acne is covered perfectly but not cakey. Sometimes, I sweep some over that with the handy buki just to make sure it's blended well and I have never received so many complements on my bad skin!
Usually I buy pencil eyeliners but I must say this is the best liquid liner I have ever used. The hard marker like tip makes it easier to apply than a liner brush and it lasts all day. You can make the line thick or thin depending on how you hold the "marker".
Eye Shadow -Sally Hansen - S Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy

These eyeshadows are a perfect combination of three coordinating colors that act as a highlighting, contouring, and middle shades. They apply easily and last long.
I love the packaging and I love Carmindy so I was really looking forward to this product. Unfortunately, it made my skin look dry and flakey, even a few minutes after I put it on. I will not be buying this again.
Treatments -Neutrogena - On the Spot Acne Treatment Vanishing Formula

If you have cystic acne this product will probably not be strong enough but for the little pimples or whiteheads (if you get them first day) this will zap them without the drying that occurs with 10% benzoyl peroxide creams. Similar to what is in the Proactiv kit for a lot less!
The best salacylic acid treatment for those with combanation skin because it has just enough treatment for the occasional breakout without the dryness.
