I got this product as a Christmas present and have used it regularly since then. I like the cards, they are very useful for beginners. The colors are really wearable and can be used interchangeably. My favorite combination is Heaven on the brow bone, velvet revolver in the crease and silk teddy on the lid. It's such a pretty day look. The only complaint I have is the fallout. I am constantly cleaning the eyeshadow from under my eye. I also do not really like the fashion colors, they are just "too much" to be considered natural.
Moisturizers -Garnier - Moisture Rescue Lightweight UV Lotion SPF 15

I love this product! I had been using olay beauty fluid for years and this product has replaced it. This moisturizes my skin really well and has SPF. It smells great too!
This is my HG mascara. I've tried hundreds of different brands but I always come back to this. It provides great length, as well as thickens my lashes just enough so they look full, but not fake. I highly recommend this.
After years of getting my hair colored in a salon I decided to make the change to at home coloring. I picked this product up in Copper Mahogany brown. I had my grandmother, who is a hairdresser, apply this to my hair. While she was applying it I was horrified by the purple color the dye was turning but she told me that it was normal and not to worry. The actual color did not turn out to be purple at all but a brownish red color, which is what the swatch looked like at CVS. One negative comment I have is that this stained my scalp terribly! I cant go anywhere today because of it. My roots also look much more red then the rest of my hair, but that is probably due to the stains on my head. Overall I would recommend this product. It made my hair soft and shiny. :Update: After showering, the stains are considerably gone, and my roots are still a little more red than the rest of my hair, but it does not look as crazy as it did before.
This product and I really got off on the wrong foot...I originally used these twice a day, everyday. what a big mistake that was. This made my face a mess! I broke out, my skin was peeling and red. It was bad. After letting my face settle down and clear up, I began using these a couple times a week and at night only. These have improved the overall appearance of my skin. I dont have acne, but I do have some small whiteheads on my chin. These pads cleared them up and keeps them at bay. I suggest using this product only a few times a week in the beginning, then if you really need them, begin using them more frequently.
I really like this product. After reading the reviews here I went out and picked it up at my local CVS. I found this to be a little expensive for a drugstore brand, but you pay for what you get I guess. Anyways, I like this because it is not glittery. Just a nice, simple glow. ve found that I can only use this on my cheeks because I tend to look a little TOO shiny if its applied to my chin and nose.
I am a dedicated red nail polish wearer. I have been faithful to Kennebunkport for a long time and really had no interest in straying from it. My mom purchased this color, and I decided to give it a try. Well, Im sorry Kennebunkport, I think you have been replaced, at least for little. This a very nice shade of red. It is a tad lighter than Kennebunkport. I would say this is pretty close to a true red but a little more on the blue side. It's classic and holds up pretty well against chipping. A must have!

I love this product! It has replaced my NARS pressed power forever! I used to be a fall face of makeup girl, everyday of the week. One morning I woke up and decided I didn't want to spend that much time in the bathroom. In comes this product. It controls the shine on my face, without being heavy, pairing this with the dream mousse concealer and my face looks flawless! It provides just the right amount of coverage, not to mention the price cannot be beat! I highly suggest this product.

I love this product! This covers just about everything; I have a horrible tendency to pop pimples ( I know, its the worst thing to do to one's face, but I cant help it) this covers up the redness wonderfully. I actually have cut back on my foundation use because of this product. I highly recommend it.
Purchased this product based on the good reviews it got here. I usually like to try new makeup with foundation, powder, mascara...my whole face basically made up, but I didnt get to do it this time around. I tossed this on bare skin and I really liked it. Im really fair skinned, and this product provided a nice, rosy glow. I cant compare it to NARS but I can stomach spending 4 dollars over 25. :EDIT: Today I was wearing this outside and I caught my reflection and noticed how shimmery it was! I still really like it but it might just be too shimmery for everyday, or I have to use it more sparingly.
I guess I cant give this a fair review because I have the CVS version, but an SA told me they are the same thing, different brand. I love this mask, it improves the look and feel of my skin. It's also really fun to wear because of the green color and the minty feel. It shrinks the appearance of pores and helps clear up existing breakouts. When I finish up this bottle I will head over to Walgreens and get the actual Queen Helene.

I absolutely hate this product!!! It broke me out after only a few days which is obviously something no one wants from their foundation. I am NC!5, if not lighter and this foundation made me look like an Oopma Loompa. There was nothing I liked about this foundation.
Hands down favorite nail polish ever. The perfect shade of red for my skin tone; Its a sexy, vampy, retro blue based-red. I usually wear this color during the fall, winter and early spring months, and sometimes on days when Im feeling the need to vamp it up. I cannot say enough good things about this polish!
I generally favor shades of red, but a light pink nail polish is a staple. It usually takes about 3 coats to get the desired color, doing any less can result in streaking and uneven color. I would like to give it 5 stars but because I use it rarely, it only gets 3.
Mascara -Maybelline - Full 'N Soft Mascara Waterproof

for the longest time I used the very black, washable version of this mascara. Today on a whim I bought the Blackish brown in waterproof. After using it I promptly tossed my old mascara. This mascara gives me what I like to call "pretty eyes". The Blackish Brown is not as harsh as the very black was, and the waterproof formula seems to be just better overall. No clumping, holds a curl better and makes my lashes longer. My eyes just looked so nice! I will definetly use this throughout the summer.
