I gave this 5 lippies b/c it's an outstanding quality...but sadly, it just didn't work on me with my coloring. It looked weird. I can see it looking stunning on someone with the right coloring though. I am a lightly tan skinned blonde with light brown/green eyes. I think ladies with dark hair will look gorgeous in this.
MAC really deserves all the praises it gets for eyeshadows. They are so wonderfully pigmented. This one is one of the best highlighters for my browbone. It smooths on so nicely...just glides. Has a beautiful sheen. Try it, you'll love it!
Fragrances -Dessert Beauty - Taste Kissable Fragrance

I have three words: Save Your Money! This product is stinky...nothing I can imagine anyone over 12 wearing, and it actually left my arm where I applied it STICKY!! Ew! My husband took one sniff and got a weird look on his face. I said, "Taste it, hon." He did, and he asked me how much I had wasted on that. It's unbelievably over-priced. Laughable!! LOL
Since using this and Neutrogena's moisturizer, I have had great success with my skin. No breakouts and people telling me how smooth it looks. I'm happy with this cleanser and I like the rinse off/wipe off option for cleansing...there are times when I just want to fall into bed rather than lathering up and then rinsing, etc...on those nights, I can just pump some of the cleanser into my hands, rub it on my face and tissue off. The smell could be better... It's cheap and it works, though, so I won't complain.
Eye Shadow -Estee Lauder - Pure Color eyeshadow in cubes

I adore the packaging and colors...makes me want to start yet another eyeshadow collection! :::sigh::: But I have to agree that the pigmentation could be better...it's not bad, but they could have worked a little harder on it. My favorite is the Fucsia Cube...Very fun pink. I think $20 is a little steep for the amount of shadow in the cube and the quality...but I'm a sucker for "cute-sy" things so I will probably buy more.
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Oil Free Moisture - SPF 15

I LOVE this product. For 10 bucks I get a great, oil-free moisturizer and a sheer tint that just gives my skin a healthy glow. The best part is that it has wonderful long term effects on my skin. The longer I use this stuff, the more people tell me how great my (37 year old) skin looks. WooHoo!
I have LOTS of lippies ranging from as cheap as Jane products all the way up to more than $20 a tube and I can honestly say that Jane is as good as or better than all the lippies I have (including my MAC lippies.)
My three favorites are:
Go Bananas (pink-y beige, slight frost - tastes/smells like bananas)
Tropical Breeze (gorgeous mauve-y pink with slight shimmer - tastes/smells like pineapple!)
Stud Muffin (super flattering light taupe/beige soft shimmer, no taste/smell)
If Jane can make such good lippies for so cheaply, why can't the other companies? Hmmmmmmmmmmm...
Skincare - Face -Noxzema - Exhilarating Wet Cleansing Cloths

I really like these. I have always liked the wonderful feeling I get from cleansing with regular Noxema creme, and now I can have that feeling "on the go" -- quicker and easier. Noxema is still around for a reason...it's great stuff.
I used to love this, but then suddenly, it made me sick and lightheaded everytime I sprayed it. The thing is, when I would go to do laundry and smell it on my clothes after having worn it, it smelled nice...but I cannot get past the initial assault on my senses of burnt licorice, burnt blackened sugar, scorched vanilla, etc. LOL I do adore the packaging. I guess it's one of those you either love or hate.
Fragrances -mark - Hollywood Pink Perfume [DISCONTINUED]

This is a fragrance that never fails to make me feel yummy when I put it on. I feel like running up to everyone and saying, "Smell me...don't I smell delish?!" LOL Definately surprised since I have never been a big fan of Avon fragrances. They have a hit with this one! I like layering the lotion with the fragrance for extra long staying power, too! =)
