I think this mascara is okay. Not great, but for under $5.00 it's okay. I get it with my Ulta rewards and use it on my casual days. I don't have a problem with the application or the formula, although it is a bit wet as previously described.
Brows -Anastasia Of Beverly Hills - Anastasia Five Item Brow Kit

I purchased this kit this weekend. I need to admit that reading all these reviews, made me a little nervous. But my brows needed major help so I caved. And...I love this kit. Honestly, my eye brows have never looked better. It's a little tricky to use at first, and I actually tried all 4 stencils before deciding on the one that is right for my face. I practiced about 10 times before I was able to achieve a desired look. I didn't have a Groucho effect that someone else got, and I suspect that this may be caused by the wrong color of the powder. I have colored red hair, I am very pale, with dark eyebrows and lashes. I purchased the kit for brunettes, and the color is right for me. It is easy to layer for more color of needed. Today was a first major test because I needed to incorporate it into my morning make up ritual. Worked out fine, and I suspect that the more I use this, the more I will get a hang of it. Practice and patience is the key to this. Also, I found that I only use the stencil for the first half of my brows, from about the nose to about half of the brow. Staying power of the powder and the gel is great, the tweezers are the best I've ever used, and the packaging is nice and convenient. One lippie off because the price is painful.
Shampoo -ARTec - Color Depositing Shampoo [DISCONTINUED]

I love love love this shampoo. I color my hair red and I use the Cherry Bark shampoo and conditioner. It keeps my hair really shiny and keeps the color vibrant. The smell isn't great. It's strong and it smells like a hair dye mized with perfume, luckily it doesn't linger.
I don't know if this was the wrong color for me, but it didn't look very great on my pale skin. I have yellow undertones and this looked peachy on me. Not very sexy or natural. The product is way too glittery and at the end of the day I end up with gold shimmer all over my face. I won't buy this again.
Treatments -Philosophy - ON A CLEAR DAY blemish gel [DISCONTINUED]

The smell is horrible, the pain at times unbearable and the medicine dropper bottle sucks. Why do I use this? Because it works wonders on big, painful zits. It usually makes the zit diminish within a day, 2 max. The bad side effect is that is causes some scabbing if you over apply. This stuff is very powerful! You are better off reapplying throughout the day than applying too much once a day. Once you notice that the size and hardness of your zit has decreased, I recommend that you don't use the gel for the next 12 or 24 hours. I noticed that this has helped to avoid any potential scabbing.
I love this product! My skin freaked out this year (I'm 29) and it resulted in ugly acne. The acne would get worse during PMS, and it took forever to go away. I bought this, and now I use it twice a day. It has cleared up my complection and it keeps the monthly break outs to a minimum. My skin is now clear, and when I do get a zit I use the Philosophy acne gel. I think that is called On A Clear Day too. They do come in kits, and I recommend buying the kit. Packaging is horrible, but the results are great.
I really like this product. It gives great coverage, doesn't dry out my skin and does not cause breakouts. I have been using it since August almost daily and have been very happy with the results. Definelty apply this with a light hand. If you go too heavy, you run the risk of your skin looking like a plastic, shiny mask. Will definetly buy again, unless something even better comes out on the market.
