Mascara -Bobbi Brown - Lash Glamour Lengthening Mascara

My new favorite mascara. Don't let the crazy-looking brush throw you; it just takes some practice. Great pigment, doesn't smear or flake, and looks great all day. Some tips for first time users: 1) wipe the brush before the first use or you'll get too much, and 2) keep layering it on until you get the look you want. Don't put on a coat and let it dry before adding another coat.
The Delux Tintstick in Betty is a great neutral color that I always fall back on. It is a slightly brownish your-lips-but-better shade that stays put for quite a while. Convenient packaging, too. A staple.
Lip Gloss -Delux Beauty - Marshall Lip Gloss [DISCONTINUED]

I love Delux lip products. Marshall is one of my favorites because it's a color I wouldn't normally wear, but it's so neutral and such a delicate shimmer it looks beautiful. I usually can't pull off lip color this light, but this shade is so subtle it's perfect to wear with a smoky eye or a minimal look.
This is the perfect red for me. It's a sheer brownish-red that is really flattering with my light/medium complexion, brunette hair, green eyes. I also love it because it isn't cakey or dry, a problem I find with most reds.
Lotions/ Creams -Bobbi Brown - Conditioning Hand and Cuticle Balm

I love this product. It's really rich but not greasy, and thick enough to be effective on cuticles. The smell is a wonderful orange that isn't too sweet. I carry it in my purse and use it throughout the day and at night.
Pucker Polish has a clear gloss on one end and a (very tiny!) tube of stain on the other. Honey is a sort of brownish berry shade. I like the color and the stain does stay put (though not for the 6 hours promised on the Sephora site), but the there is too little stain to justify the price. I would probably buy again because I like the color so much. Update: After a few more uses, I decided I wouldn't buy this again. The color has started to look like a popcicle stain. Not recommended.
