This is the only eyeliner I buy. I always wear liquid eye liner and would always have problems with the eyeliner getting on my eye lids (I have oily skin). But this stays on without smudging. The only thing is waiting for it to dry because if you're too impatient it'll get on your lids! Once it's on it's a vivid black color and won't come off. It last me a while too, about 3-4 months, not bad for $15.
I love this Nair product! It's the only microwave wax kit I buy although it can be hard to find sometimes. It smells so good and it comes with plenty of strips that you can cut into smaller pieces in case you wax your bikini area. You can also reuse the strips by running them under hot water and letting them air dry. My only problem would be the wax gets cold rather quickly so that I have to keep reheating it but other then that it works great for me!
I love the Vanilla body spray, it smells like marshmallows! It doesn't last very long but hey it's a body spray, not a perfume. It goes great with the matching body lotion for a lasting smell.
I needed to cleanse my face and was too lazy to mix my usual Aztec Healing Clay with water so I tried a free sample of the DHC Mineral Mask. Although it went on smooth, dried quickly, was easy to take off, and left my skin soft as a baby's bottom it didn't unclog my pores as much as the Aztec Healing Mask does. I have very oily, acne prone skin and I must say Aztec Healing Mask works much better as well is way cheaper. But for those with normal skin with minor breakouts I could see how DHC's Mineral Mask could work for you.
Although the rest of the Pro-Activ system sucks and is a rip-off I would recommend the refining mask. It really does work at refining your skin and making your pores look smaller. I use it only on special occasions when I want to look my best such as dates, interviews, and parties. My skin is acne prone and if you're looking for a mask to clear up your skin and suck all the impurities out I would recommend AZTEC SECRET INDIAN HEALING CLAY. It's a powder you mix with water and trust me it works. You can find it online or at health food stores for about $5 dollars a bin. But if you have oily skin with large pores and want to look your best for a special day, try this mask.
I love the way it smells but the scent goes away so quickly! Other than that I have no complaints and always get complimented on it. Normally when the scent doesn't last I'll refuse to buy it again but it smells so good so for Paris I'll make an exception (and buy the perfume at the Swap Meet for a third of the price) LOL
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Amber Romance Body Splash

I'm sorry but I just can't stomach this smell. It gives me a headache!
I love, love, love this scent! I think it differs from other VS scents in that it smells a bit more adult, more seductive. I only wear it when I go on dates or for special events and always get complimented on it. But I was reading comments and someone said it's discontinued?! Say it ain't so! =( Guess I'll have to stock up at semi-annual sales.
Out of all the Victoria Secret Body sprays, I would have to say that this is my favorite. It's very fresh smelling and most of all it takes me back to '96, '97, '98 ... All I have to do is spray it on me and I'm taken back to when I was young with no cares in the world. I also like the fact that it's not as played out as some other VS scents (Lovespell, Pear Glace) It's been discontinued for quite some time now but on occasion they'll have it in the semi-annual sales and I'll snatch up some lotion.
Lotions/ Creams -Avon - Naturals Vanilla Body Lotion

I love this lotion, I think it smells even better than Bath & Body Works Warm Vanilla cream. It softens your skin, and the smell lasts all day long, which is more than I can say for certain perfumes that I paid $50 for! It's cheap as well especially if you catch it on sale in the Avon catalogs.
I love Ponds cold cream! I have oily/acne prone skin and wear make-up, so at night I need something that will clean my face thoroughly but not be too abrasive. I first rinse off my eye-makeup with soap and water and then use Ponds to take off my make-up and rinse it off with a wet washcloth. It takes off foundation while at the same time moisturizing my skin. Ever since I started it using it I noticed that my skin doesn't break out quite as much as it used too. Also, it's only $6 dollers a jar (if you buy at Target or somewhere else that's cheap) and it lasts you 5 to 6 months. Trust me ladies you get your moneys worth and more.
Eye Shadow -Mary Kay - Velocity Shadow Box - Heart Throb

I also received this as a gift and was not disapointed. The colors go on smooth and don't crease. I'm not very good at applying eyeshadows, but with the applicator that came with it my eyeshadow looked as if it had been professionally applied. I would recommend this to those that are thinking about purchasing Mary Kay eyeshadow.
This is a great eyshadow for those who want to do the smokey eye look. It's a new formula so the colors go on really smooth and vivid. You get 4 colors and two applicators. This is worth the price and more!
Eye Shadow -Max Factor - Eyeshadow Trio in Queen Bee

I love these colors, they remind me of a fairy. They're really vibrant whether wet or dry and show up well on my skin. I'm glad Max Factor came out with these brands of eyeshadows because you get the high quality color minus the expensive price!
Eye Shadow -Cover Girl - Eye Enhancers Quad - Country Woods

This is my favorite eyeshadow from Covergirl, it goes well with my skintone, and I can wear it with any outfit regardless if its brown or not. It lasts a long time as well and costs next to nothing. I like to wear the mink color by itself as a nice shimmer to highlight my eyes.
