Polishes -Sally Hansen - Insta-Dri Nailpolish Colors

I'm the opposite of the previous reviewer. I love the brush and found it made for a much quicker and cleaner application. I got the Cinna-snap one, I think that's the name, it's a dark browned down red and I love it. Just a couple swipes and I'm done and it does dry super fast. For reference, my nail beds are very curved so maybe that's why this works so great for me. I plan on getting other colors.
Wow I was completely surprised by this. I had my mom order it for me and she tested it out first and didn't think I was going to like it but it must work well with my chemistry because I love it. On me it settles into a balanced soft, powdery, floral...makes me feel very feminine and the scent truly lasts throughout the day and into the evening. I plan on always having this in my stash to use year round.
Accessories -Unlisted Brand - O2 Optix - Contact Lenses

Finally lenses I can wear ALL day!! I always dreaded putting in my contacts knowing that in just a couple hours I was going to be met with red and irritated eyes, as a result, I barely wore them. But these beauties are great, I can go nearly all day with little, if any, irritation. They are easy to pop out which is great for me since I would rip through a pair so easily. My dh loves them too!
I was all set not to like this but surprise, suprise - I love it! I used it under Everyday Minerals which usually leaves me oily in just a few hours and I easily went 8 plus hours with very little oily breakthrough with this primer. I even napped a bit and no touchups needed. It really smoothed out my pores and yes I can see it worn alone if you have very nice skin and just want to look polished. It leaves a very nice, matte finish.

Yikes...this is not for fine hair. I have fine, medium shoulder length hair and no matter how little of this stuff I use, it always leaves me a greasy mess. I literally have tried using just a dab but it's just way too greasy for me.
Deodorants -Unlisted Brand - Crystal Body Deodorant Stick

I am forever a skeptic and really didn't think this would work but hubby was buying groceries one day so I thought what the heck, it's his dime if it doesn't work. Well I've been proven wrong, this stuff really does work. I put it on in the morning after I get out of the shower while i'm still wet and work it around until it dries up, I put on a lot. At the end of the day, there is no trace of pit stink at all. Now it does nothing to fight wetness but I don't have a huge issue with that and I've never found anything that stops wetness completely anyway and it doesn't claim to be an antipersperant so no lippies off for that. One lippie off for the fact that if it does fail, it fails hard and you are left with some majorly stinky pits but that has only happened when I failed to put it on properly. I will repurchase if I ever run out, this thing is going to last forever.
This is a nice, light, basic moisturizer. I like spf in my daytime moisturizer but hubby hates it so I handed this one off to him. He loves it and it's one of the very few that does not break him out. I have and will repurchase for him.
This is what I wanted Lash Blast to be. This formula gives equal results to Lash Blast but for me is much easier to work with and holds a curl better. No smudges, lasts all day and gives plenty of drama. I have long dark lashes and need mascara to hold a curl and lend a bit of volume and this one delivers...this is the one I reach for more and more. Have already repurchased.
Treatments (Eye) -Garnier - Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller

This felt great going on initially then it started burning. I did notice it tightened my eye area ever so slightly but not enough to put up with the burn so back it went.
Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Extra Virgin Olive Oil

I was looking at some pics from awhile back and thought, "Dang my skin was so smooth", then I realized that during that time I had been using EVOO as a facial moisturizer. It has done more for smoothing fine lines and getting rid of all those darn bumps then anything I've used. It is also great for clearing up blackheads. It can be a bit drying which is why I stopped using it during the winter months but now that's it's summer and my skin needs to be unclogged, I've started using it again as a night treatment. After one week, my skin is smoothing out again and this is all that I've been using! I am careful not to get it in my eyes though or it will sting although others don't seem to have this problem.
Treatments -Avon - ANEW Ultimate Age Repair Cream Night
Daisy1012 4/29/2008 11:55:00 AM
Darn, I so did not want to like this product because of the high price, but my mom was visiting and had this in her arsenal along with the elixer so I figured I'd try it out. Two weeks later, my skin is looking better and better...smoother texture and even tone. If this keeps up, I won't be needing foundation which would be perfect for summer! The cream absorbs fast and leaves absolutely no grease behind. I don't notice the smell but i'm not particularly sensitive to scents. I'm not sure how the cream performs without the elixer but the two together have given me great results. Now I'm going to have to scour ebay for cheaper prices.
Top/Base Coats -Revlon - ColorStay Always On Sealant
Daisy1012 3/28/2008 3:10:00 PM
I've tried the other more expensive brands and always come back to this. Simply put...it works! I can easily get 5 days wear with this and sometimes longer when I add a second coat in the middle of the week.
I'm not sure what it is about my skin tone but anything that has even a hint of orange shows up as bright orange on my lips and this was no exception. I'm giving up on the Glazewears accept for the Dazzlers which have a more lip gloss feel.
I tried 5 different times to like this and thought I was finally done with it but just before I tossed it I decided to give it one more shot. Weird thing is, it worked great! It really does give a lot of coverage while still looking natural. It tends to get a bit greasy which is why i took off one lippie. I have super dry skin in the winter so the dewey finish this leaves is perfect. I just swipe this on and blend out with a makeup sponge. I think the little bit at the top was dried out which is why it didn't work out until after a few tries.
I was about to spend much more on another fancier foot file but decided to try this first and I'm so glad I did! This works fantastic and the results are long lasting...quick and easy. I find the cup catches most of the shavings. I'm so happy I don't have to deal with all the pumice scrubbing in the shower and lathering on the lotions, etc. I don't think I'll ever be without one of these magic eggs.
