i love this. i hope they never discontinue it. it evens out my skin tone. i took 1 lippie off because it makes my skin oily (i have normal skin), but i could deal with that. it hasn't made me break out and my skin looks flawless. after i bought it on ebay for $15USD, i saw they added more shades and was afraid it wouldn't be the right shade for me, but it definitely is. i love it! UPDATE 12/31/04: i'm still loving this, loving this so much i had to come and update LOL i don't think my makeup, any of it, have gone on so nicely before!
i never used a brush for foundation before because i didn't think it'd make a difference, but WOW. i bought this one because it was $10, much cheaper than others, to try based on the reviews. i LOVE it. i can't believe i went so long without a foundation brush. this is my 3rd sonia kashuk tool and i'm very impressed. my face looks flawless when i use this. i'll definitely be repurchasing, but i don't think i'll need to unless i misplace it because the blending UPDATE: this brush hasn't been working as well anymore. i took off 2 lippies because it's making my foundation streaky and the bristles are very good anymore, even with the proper cleaning of the brush.
i took off a lippie because i don't like it as a blush. i love it as a highlighter! it was rediscovered by me in my makeup bag today and looks so nice swiped over my forehead lightly, apples of my cheek, above the cheek bone, and nose. i love it, but i don't think i'd purchase it again. i could find better, also MEANT to highlight.
i love this powder. when my brows are messed up, i use this and looks very natural, unlike pencil, and stays put all day. i took a lippie off for price and packaging for the same reasons the poster below did. i love it! UPDATE: i gave it away to my cousin in croatia because she also fell in love with it and i bought another one when i got home and i'm still loving it. now when i have a bad job done on my eyebrows, i never worry because this always saves me! FYI: i have this in charcoaled.

i love this gloss. i love the texture, consistency, and color. i love how it also moisturizes! i'm on my 2nd tube. i think i should try the other colors.
Concealers -Maybelline - Great Wear [DISCONTINUED]

i bought this because of the reviews and then it sat in my makeup drawer, but i put it on this morning because of a massive zit and it conceals so well! i'm bringing this concealer everywhere with me now =)
this is the first bleaching product i've bought, so i can't compare, but i don't see anything wrong! i love it! it lightened the dark hair on my arms very well and was easy to use. i thought it'd be messy, but it wasn't. i'll definitely be buying it again!
this is the color i've been looking for for 2 years: can't see my lips. i am so happy i found this. i love it. i took off a lippie because it's kinda hard to blend as it's so dry.
i love this mascara! i finally found what i've been looking for: length and volume. to see good results, let it dry and then apply. dry and apply. i did it 3 times and my lashes look so fake, it's not even funny. i love it! i took off one lippie, though, because it looks and comes out kinda clumpy if you don't use a lash comb, but with sonia kashuk's, it works fine! i could just live without that extra step.
this is the only blush i own by MAC. it's good enough and the color's really pretty, but i think my maybelline blush is just as good for less than half the price.
this is a really good gloss (i have it in clear), but it leaked EVERYWHERE. i have no idea why. i was careful and clean, but it still managed to seep out and get all over the place. that's why i gave it only 2 lippies. it made me so aggravated!
Shampoo -Thermasilk - Heat Activated Moisturizing Shampoo

i'm not sure if i like it a lot because of the price ($1.99) or because it doesn't do anything wrong to my hair. it's a good, basic shampoo. it doesn't leave any residue in my hair and lathers nicely. i've probably been through 6 bottles or so. every time i look for another shampoo, i just stop because i figured this was good enough.
this didn't do anything for my dark circles, nor concealing anything else, for that matter. it'd make my zits less noticable, but you could still see it. thank god i didn't pay a penny for this.
i have to admit i tried this because of the cute packaging. i think apt. 5 has the best packaging with the acrylics and everything. anyway, i bought this in clear. i'm not really into their shades and i was looking for a clear one for my lazy days. i took off a lippie because it doesn't shine a lot, but it's good enough. it's also moiturizing and stays on pretty long. i'd definitely buy it again. the price doesn't hurt, either ;)
Tinted Moisturizer -Tarte - Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Mosturizer (Smooth Operator)

my sister just bought this from sephora, so after reading the reviews, i decided to steal it from her and try it and i'm glad i did! it's great. although i could use more coverage, it feels more like a tinted moisturizer. i think i'm gonna myself one.
