Lip Treatments -Carmex - Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Tinted Lip Balms

These are great. I was expecting the classic Carmex scent and flavor (I'm in the minority that likes it) but it smells slightly like cocoa butter maybe with a hint of Carmex. Minimal taste. I also get a very brief and mild tingle sensation.

This product is a dual-ended stick, one side is cream eye shadow and the other is eye liner. Instead of using this as a shadow, I use it fill in my eye brows. I blend it with an old toothbrush and set with face powder. Fantastic.
Great pigmentation, great texture, great colors :)
Decent. A nice alternative to the original for those who found the mint oil drying. Plus, in the winter, who wants tingling cold lips?

Until I got a better moisturizer I never realized that you shouldn't have to wipe excess grease off your face after applying moisturizer. Oil-free my ass.

Absorbs VERY well, works very nicely under makeup. I wish I'd tried this sooner. Can't beat the price.
I am very wary of reviewers that blame just one product for breaking out them out. I think this is usually unfair as there are probably a couple things involved, not just Product ____. So I will say instead that while I used the 1% BHA Lotion, the blackheads on my nose got much worse. Clogged pores where I've never had any trouble before. While PC BHA 1% may have not CAUSED them (which I strongly suspect it did) I did expect it to help with the problem (it didn't). I attempted to salvage the last quarter of the bottle by using it on my chest. Strangely enough, the pores on my chest are now all slightly clogged. Thanks Paula. >:(

Smells like cake batter :) Very nice, cannot beat the price/quantity.
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorstay Overtime SHEER - Sheer Rosette

This is the only color that appealed to me in the group, very YLBB. I wish the gloss end was larger, it's pretty obvious you're going to run out of that before the "paint" side. You do have to keep reapplying the gloss to keep it from balling, but I'm willing to put up with that. Great color, no noticable scent or flavor.
This goes on much, much sheerer than how it looks in the tube. I can forgive this because the sheer red tint it gives is a beautiful bitten, YLLB shade. No shimmer/sparkle in this particular color, something I wish would be carried on in the others. Great lipgloss, good color, love the packaging.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Super Lustrous Lip Gloss - Toast to Shine [DISCONTINUED]

The poor man's version of MAC's C-Thru. Lovely light beige, everything I'd hoped High-beam Tan would have been. Toast to Shine looks especially good when paired with dark/dramatic eye makeup.
Very pretty, very unique. A must have for blue eyed girls.
The mascara from Hell.

I use this brush almost every day. Very precise, a good addition to any brush collection.
Great, versatile color. A good start for anyone just getting into pigments.
