I received this as a gift. Ew. This stuff reeks. After I put it on it smelled like hairspray. NASTY. The smell is really powerful. With one tiny spray I could smell myself for hours, which is not a good thing with a gross smelling perfume. Do not buy this.
I suck at describing scents so I am not even going to try. I would say to just smell it for yourself sincel it's kind of hard to explain. It's a very powerful scent so you don't need much at all. I wouldn't have picked this out myself, but my husband got it for me and he loves when I wear it. For me, it's kind of meh, not horrible, but not HG. But since my husband loves it and other guys give me compliments, I did give it 4 lippies. This is a good day to day scent and lasts a long time.
Mm this perfume smells so good! It's kind of applely yet woodsy. It's really pretty and the smell lasts so long on me! I love this stuff and it's the perfect perfume for the summer!

This isn't a scent I would have normally picked out. But I received it as a gift from my sister. The scent of this is very clean and flowery, but not too overpowering like many floral scents can be. Overall, I prefer more fruity or foody scents, but this is a good one for those who love floral! EDIT: I am bumping this up to 5 lippies. Because even though this isn't my fav. scent, it's good and it lasts ALL day which is rare for a body spray.
Eye Shadow -Unlisted Brand - beauty from the earth

Oh man! I am in LOVE with these!!! After seeing numerous videos on youtube that used these I decided to give them a try myself. They are 6.50 per eyeshadow which isn't too bad for the quality you get. The website has tons of colors rangining from neon to neutral. I ordered lemon, strawberry, green apple and blueberry. Each color is very VERY pigmented and beautiful. I use a base when I apply these and apply them wet OR dry. Either way they have great staying power and last all day. Whenever I wear these people always give me compliments and wonder where I got them. You can also use these as lip/face/nail color as well. I think everyone should go get some of these. You will LOVE them!!! Ps, I don't know what the reviewer below was saying about spending 50 dollars but mine were 6.50 USD each.
These are definately not the worst polishes I have bought but not the best either. I have a few different colors, all of which are really pretty and go on easily for me. The only problem is if you do not use a top coat they peel off really easily. I mean really easily. They don't flake off, you can acually peel them off. Lol. But whatever, they are cheap and I like them.
I bought this after reading reviews on MUA and love it! It's a gorgeous pink color and it blends like a dream. This goes on so easily and can be layered to acheive your desired look. It was matte and looked great on my fair skin! I use it daily!
Eyeliner -Almay - Intense i-Color Bring Out the Brown in Purple Amethyst

I got this eyeliner about 4 years ago and still have it. I normally like to wear black, but I do really like this color too.. the funny thing is that I never noticed the sharpener in the bottom until like a week ago.. Obviously I am not very observent. This is a great color and it goes on fairly well, with a tiny bit of tugging. It stays on throughout the day pretty well but has a bit of smudging. Also, this was kind of expensive. Why? That was weird, since it's not amazing. Oh well. It's a good eyeliner, and the color makes it what it is.

Mmm this stuff is nice. On me, it smells like a vanilla cupcake. It's a really pleasant smell that lasts all day.
OMG. I love this. Last summer I needed a body exfoliator to help my skin look great. So I found this at Walmart, and it was decently priced. This smells so great and fruity. It makes for a pleasant showering experience. It made my skin really smooth and soft without any irritation. Go get some everyone!
Scrubs -St. Ives - Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control

Oh man, I had almost forgot about this stuff! I don't know why, but for some reason I stopped buying it again. Thanks for reminding me MUA! My freshman year of college my skin got REALLY dry due to moving to a new place that was at an extremely high altitude and was really dry. I needed something to exfoliate but also help with acne. I saw this and it was cheap, so I got it. I love the apricot smell! It's great. This has large chunks which make it great for exfoliating, but probably not for sensitive skin. This also helped with my acne. I love this and will buy again!
I LOVE THESE! I have this product in champaigne, the pink, and a bronze color. I love them all! They aren't the easiest to blend, but once you know what you are doing, they work wonderfully. LIke the reviewer below said, use a lot and they don't crease. These have AMAZING staying power for me, and look great! I am really sad these were discontinued!
Liquid -Revlon - ColorStay Makeup with SoftFlex SPF 6 for Combination/Oily Skin
BrittyG 2/6/2009 11:43:00 AM
OMG. I love this stuff. I had previously been using Covergirl Trublend and it made me so oily and had bleh coverage, so after reading reviews I decided to go get it. I was really nervous about the color matching my skin tone. I got the Buff color, but all of the colors seemed to have a yellowish undertone, and I naturally have a pink undertone. However, I think the yellow was good for me because it cancelled out some of the pink and made my skin look more neutral. I got the combination formula. One thing to remember is to moisturize before using this. If you try to put this on dry skin, it won't work. At all. This also dries really fast, so you have to blend quickly. Like others have said, a pump would have been nice! But overall, this stuff is great. My skin looks amazing, and this has pretty good coverage. I am not at all oily like normal, and this doesnt rub off on clothes! I will def. buy this again! EDIT: Sigh. I love this and it keeps my face matte, but it ended up breaking me out like a teenager again. It was horrible. So.. sadly I cannot use this anymore... 2nd EDIT: Once I figured out how to get this off properly, I stopped breaking out. Also, I started applying it with a wet sponge and it made a world of a differnce. It made this so much easier to blend. So I am back to using it again! ;)
This is one of the better MK products. I love how this stuff gives my skin such a beautiful glow. I don't like the brush applicator thing because I don't think it's super sanitary, but it's still a good product.
Cleansers -Mary Kay - Timewise 3-in-1 Cleanser and Moisturizer

I wanted to like this. I really did. But I HATE it. This stuff breaks me out HORRIBLY! My skin looked like crap while I used this. Save yourself some money and go buy some d/s facewash. This made my skin dry, yet gave me a ton of acne. Sorry MaryKay but this stuff sucks.
