Thankfully I got this at an outlet for $10. It is worth about that. I prefer the drugstore brand, Maybelline Lash Stiletto:Voluptous much much more. I start to have raccoon eyes after 5 hours wearing this. Plus it flakes into my eyes. OUCH! Will stick to my Kiss Me mascara. I do like the sparkly jade packaging though....

I used to always use this, switched to Shiseido (the sunscreen in it I was allergic to) then switched back to this(sunscreen FREE). It is very light and is good for setting a tinted moisturizer with a matte finish. VERY light coverage though, don't get this if you are expecting it to cover anything. It just covers up redness and makes you face matte.

Got this at Anthropologie. It's GREAT! I have been looking for a new good lipbalm and this fits the bill. It's basically like the original Rosebud Salve, but with peppermint oil. The peppermint makes your lips all tingly when you put it on. It's great! But the peppermint also helps to tint your lips as well.

WOW! So sad at the bad reviews of this ;_; I love this product. I use it on pimples(rose oil is antibacterial), my eyelids(adds a dewy glow), cuticles, feet, and lips! I have heard about also putting this on your cheeks, but have yet to try that. My skin is oily, so I don't think that it would work. Anywas, this is good stuff. Lasts forever so it's also a good price.

I have been usings this product for a week now and love it! I had a friend that used the Red line, but because I have freckles that I dislike and Acne, I decided to go with the Blue line. The fact that a new acne line has come is even better! I use this at night and have noticed my pimples become less red and raised. You should definately should use very little of this, and at night. It does have orange oil and lavender oil (both are OK for acne) which can cause some shine(I use the serum/essence for day) if you use alone. But it sinks in very quickly and makes my face soft the next day! At $20 online, it's a nice alternative to the Shiseido The Makeup line, which is AMAZING, but too pricey for me.

I wanted to find an alternative to NARS's Orgasm blush because I have sensitive skin. THIS IS IT. This a little more orange in tint, but it you mix it with Cupid it looks identical! This is a good blush for the summer like Orgasm.

My favorite blush. Nice pigment, with a hint of sparkle. I am on my second package. Plus the packaging with the mirror is fabulous!
I hated this product. It flakes like CRAZY. Not good for people with contacts at all. The flakes stick to your contacts and you have to take them out to get the gunk off.

I really like this, but I did notice that it made me break out. Especially around my chin. I ALWAYS get complements when I wear this though, so I started to put it around my eyes as a natural eye shadow. It works great, because the gold shimmer really makes your eyes pop and have a natural glow to them. I won't buy again, but it is a good product.
I was nervouse because I have very very oily and acne skin. I really like this mask though! Even though there is almond oil and shea butter in it, I didn't notice any new break-outs. My face was soft, yet matte when I rinsed it off. Plus, if you use it before you leave the house for the day, your face smells like chocolate all day! Instant de-stressor. I will buy again.
Sunscreen -Johnson & Johnson - Baby Sunscreen Lotion SPF 40

Definately thicker that you imagine with the bottle. But it works. I have extremely sensitive skin to sunscreens so the use of only titanium and zinc pulled me right in. I don't recommend using it on your face, try Boscia or something for that. But for arms and shoulders during the summer season it's a good buy. The price is good about 8-10 dollars. Other "natural sunscreens" like Burt's Bees are like $15 for less the amount and not really natural! So if you want a good natural sunscreen go for this.

Best mascara EVER. Does exactly what it says it will do. Volumizes like crazy AND lengthens. This is also one of the top 3 best selling mascaras in Japan for the like the 2nd year in a row! Only complaint is that you have to buy the brand's mascara removed to get all of it off. It sticks like glue.

Returned it to ULTA. If you have sensitive skin, especially to sunscreens don't get this. It has non-natural sunscreens in it that can cause allergic reactions. Nice coverage, but it was also sticky. Yuck. Will stick to Boscia.
