I like the minty scent of this on my lips, and the texture and overall feel. It's the color that makes this a non-repeater. It's a shimmery pink, and comes across as a bit too pale and icy.
This product gives a very matte finish for oily skin, despite not being oil free. The coverage is good, even when using small amounts, and the texture is very blendable. It does stick to dry patches if you have any, so watch out for that. This seems to be a love it or hate it product. I love it and would buy it again for the almost flawless look it gives my skin.
I think this is an average mascara. It does give pretty good definition and dark color but it doesn't do much for either thickness or length unless you apply several coats.
Eye Shadow -L'Oreal - HiP Concentrated Duo - Devious #336

Very highly pigmented. A little goes a long way. These colors are fantastic to bring out the gold flecks in your eyes, if you have them. The colors go on smooth and are easily blended, but use a light hand.
This smells soft and warm and comfy, like a warm glass of milk. It's a very soft delicate musk with the slightest hint of vanilla. The bottle is hideous, but the price is dirt cheap and definitely worth it.
This reminds me of my very early childhood because my mother used to have this in the creme sachet version. It smells a lot like I remember it, which is basically a very linear rose note. But it has a dusty quality that reminds me of a musty attic. Too bad. I'll keep this one for nostalgia's sake only.
This goes on darker than I'd imagined. I was looking for a shade to match my actual lip color. This is in the right family but too dark to look natural. It's not quite gothic but I do like the dark plum mauvey shade for when I don't want to look too natural.

This product didn't do anything miraculous for my nails. I'm giving it four stars because it's a fairly unique concept. It sinks into the nails rather than sitting on top. Most other nail treatments I've tried end up drying them out and making them peel. This one doesn't. I'm not sure that it has much effect if you use nail polish, as it doesn't seem to penetrate the layer of polish to reach the nail. Overall, it's OK if you like a natural healthy nail look.
I like this pen. The lavender fragrance is very pleasant and not overpowering. The pen is portable and very easy to use and provides a quick polished look in a pinch. I wish Avon would bring this back.
A very deep purple. I use it wet as an eyeliner. A bit too dark to use as an overall eyeshadow, unless you want a very dark smokey eye. It's a bit hard to blend because of how dark it is, but it stays on all day.
I love this shadow. It's a blend of dark brown, black and metallic green mixed in. Very unusual. Worn all over, it does a very interesting, great smokey eye. I also use is as a liner only by wetting an eyeliner brush and applying a line close to the lashes.
This is a slightly shimmery sheer lip balm which goes on nice and tingles a bit till the peppermint wears off. The caramel shade is just slightly too warm for my pink toned skin, otherwise this would get five stars.
Very pale and shimmery, good for use as a highlight and in the corners, rather than an all over color. Nice consistency but nothing special considering the multitudes of similar shadows.
Eye Shadow -Clinique - Color Surge Eyeshadow in Sparkling Sage

This eyeshadow has a nice consistency and smoothness to it, but it's a tad too shimmery. In the package, I imagined the shimmer would be neutral or have a gold shimmer to it, but on the eyes, it appears more silvery. Not my most flattering shade, but the quality is pretty good if you like shimmer.
I like the color of this shadow but I find that the powder is so hard and compact, it's hard to get any on the applicator. It goes on lighter than you would think, as it looks pretty dark in the pan. I tried to apply it wet and it doesn't get any darker. About average.
