This eyelash curler reminds me of Shu Uemura's at a fraction of the price..I think it does a great job of curling your lashes and is better than Maybelline's. I bought this due to fellow MU member recommendations..Thanks

Wow! I have really puffy eyes due to allergies and this gel really made an improvement. I bought this due to a review on Heather Kleinmann's site and I am glad I did. No irritating ingredients and a little goes a long way. I like the pump dispenser for sanitary reasons..I finally found a decent eye gel.."Puffies" were gone in 5 minutes..
I bought the eyeliner duo in Plum and Pink Rose. It's a retractable, double-ended eyeliner pen..The light side is supposed to be used in the inner and outer corners of the eye. The dark on top of the eyelid..The application is pretty smooth and the staying power is nice as well. I am going to buy this in more colors..I like the idea of a 2 in 1 pen and being able to highlight with it..
I bought this mascara in Plum and with the plum eyeliner it brought my hazel eyes out..I don't think it does a great job of building thickness and you do have to work at getting length. If you are willing to work at it, the plum is very pretty. I am sure there are other alternatives out there that are less work..

A nice beta-hydroxy moisturizer for the price..However, my combination skin and sensitivities did not like this moisturizer. I tried it for a couple of weeks and the redness on my face got worse..I wasn't fond of the perfumey smell either..I think this is better for combination/dry skin w/o sensitivities..It was not greasy and didn't leave a film either..
Cleansers -Clientele - Elastology Soy Anti-Oxidant Wash

Very overpriced cleanser in my opinion. It does leave your face clean and smooth afterward but stung my eyes. I have sensitive skin so this was not the greatest choice for me. I went straight back to Olay's sensitive-skin foaming face wash with better results. This cleanser isn't worth $35.00~
First of all, I want to say that I have VERY sensitive skin. This product is a reddish-colored serum that is supposed to "firm up" your face. It is also VERY watery in my opinion and not user-friendly. It seems to ball-up after applying your foundation and the finish is tacky. There are definitely better options out there and less expensive..
This product is a foundation base to be used over your existing moisturizer. It is iridescent in color and has a gel-like appearance. It does go on smoothly and dries to a matte finish. I was hoping it would fill in my pores but it didn't. However, the product made them more apparent. I love the silky texture but it is not for those who wish to refine their pores. If you have small pores, then this is a nice product..
Concealers -Estee Lauder - Smoothing Cream Concealer

This concealer has a nice consistency and does go on smoothly..It also covers well and has a nice "slip" to it when applying..However, EL needs to expand their color range..The lightest color and the second lightest color are too broad. EL needs to expand the shade range..One is too light and the other is too dark! My biggest gripe about this concealer is the shade range!
