Conditioner -Dove - Volumizing Color Foam Conditioner

Yow! I never thought I had weighed down hair. But I used this conditioner (and used a tiny bit extra as a leave in) and wow my hair is springy. It's really bouncy and the curls are bigger in diameter. Even my father asked me what I did for my hair. Highly recommended.
Do you think if enough of us complain they'll bring it back? Paranoid is yummy. It looks good, it tastes good, and unlike some other lip gunks, it doesn't go bad over time - gash, tart, litter, S&M - I'm talking to you! Fortunately, I have a full size and 2 minis to last me until I find something almost as good.
Well, if you want it, better hurry, because it's listed as an RIP product on the UD site. Twisted looks great on my PPP skin, and I really haven't had much of a problem with migrating glitter. The glitter is so tiny that it isn't really noticeable on my cheeks. On me, twisted shows up as light metallic golden-yellow. I enjoy using it as an allover lid color, and I also thinks it makes a great browbone highlighter. It looks especially good on brows over a blue with gold flash eyeshadow. I think it's plenty pigmented, and it looks very good with my eyes, since they are blue with hints of gold.
Wow - this stuff is gorgeous. I am extremely PPP, and one fingerswipe of this blush per cheek is perfect. Such a beautiful color. I also like to use it more heavily as an eyeshadow - so pretty. Highly recommended. (Honestly, I don't even want to pay the $$$ for the NARS version now - why bother?)
I have this in Apparition. I'm a super PPP; I've only found 3 foundations in my life that actually match my skin tone. This is one of them. I repurchased for that reason alone. This foundation can be tricky to apply, but it goes on wet skin beautifully. Once on, it covers imperfections extremely well, and has a nice matte finish. It doesn't look mask-like at all, in fact, my mother told me my skin looked really good. (My skin - not my makeup!) I haven't had any problems with breakouts at all, but I do think it causes some flaking. Highly recommended for the super-pale.
I love Fetish lipstick. They're deeply pigmented, go on smoothly, feel nice on, and have zero taste. None. No horrid lipsticky nastiness ever. I have Sun, Rain, Fire, and All-time. Fire is my HG red lipstick - I bought about 5. I've been using two tubes of it for over a year - one for bathroom, one for purse, and there has been no alteration of quality. If you can find them, buy them.
I have all 7 of the lip shimmers, and Nutmeg is my absolute favorite. The peachy-gold shimmer looks fabulous with my super-fair skin and reddish hair. I wear this all the time and won't leave home without it. I can't imagine this color looking bad on anyone. It's even moisturizing.
Wow, am I glad I tested this before buying! I'm too pale to wear this foundation, even in the lightest shade. It was embarrassing, really; the make-up artist was calling the other ladies over - "She's too pale! I've never seen this before! Come look at this!" I liked the texture and the idea of a mineral foundation, but until they develop a super-pale, neutral hue (and they never will - all the foundations that work for me get discontinued) I'll have to pass on BE.
I've already repurchased this product. I don't use it as a foundation very often, unless my skin is really behaving itself, but I like it as a pressed powder. It *does* match my skin and doesn't turn orange. I'm super PPP. I love the nice big mirror - I can actually see my whole face. It's great as an oops I wasn't planning the house but now I have to rush out the door foundation. (Yes, you can apply it in the car.) I also like it over liquid foundation.
I like the color of this a lot - it's a very pale, shiny, shimmery pink. Good for when I'm going for that fallen angel innocent look. But the taste! Ugh. I hate the L'oreal fake raspberryish scent taste that all their glosses have - including rouge pulp. I like the color enough that I've tried layering it with a flavored clear gloss, but that taste always comes through. Bleah.
Lip Gloss -Bonne Bell - VitaGloss O2 A Splash of Color

Well, I have this in sheer cherry. The texture of the gloss is nice; it's very slippy. The color is NOT orange red like it looks in the tube - it always stains my lips a bubblegum pink, even after I take it off. The smell is - buttery cough-syrup. Not that pleasant. The taste is okay. One weird thing about this gloss - it makes my lips tingle - almost hurt. I'm not sure if I'm allergic or if this is intentional. I might repurchase because I'm a sucker for Bonne Bell, but I don't think I'll get cherry flavor again.
I like it alright. I don't notice much plumping, and my lips don't get pinker at all. Actually, I get more stinging and reddening from my colored Bonne Bell vitagloss! The taste is nice, and I would like to kiss someone while wearing this (maybe someone I was mad at.) I mostly use this over lipstick when I want extra shiny lips. For the price, it just isn't worth repurchasing.
Eye Shadow -Urban Decay - Liquid Metal Eyes Palladium

I love this color. I find it very suitable for day, with a neutral lip. It's such a pretty lilac, and really lights up my eyes. Buy it while you still can - it's half-price on their website.
Buy while you still can. I have this in Palladium, and it is beautiful. I wasn't crazy about it dry, but after I went over it with water, WOW! Stunning lilac flash. It really makes my blue eyes pop, but it's still suitable for day with a neutral lip. I really like that you don't need to store the applicator in the product; seems much more sanitary.
Lotions/ Creams -Sally Hansen - 18 Hour Protective Hand Cream

I reach for this more often than any other moisturizer - I even use it on my arms and legs after a shower! Nice and thick and creamy, and even after it sinks in, I can tell it's there, doing its job. I carry a tube in my car, have one stashed in the bathroom, by the bed...I only wish the tube was less opaque, so I could see when I'm about to run out!
