This is one of my go to creams for the spring and fall months. It is hydrating with a nice consistency. My skin has a nice clear glow after using it. My makeup goes on nicely over it. A definite repurchase.
This a very decent eye cream. It does help with line reduction and has a very nice consistency. My makeup goes on nicely over it.The only negative is that it is not moisturizing enough for the winter months.

I wish they had a "possibly" option on purchase again. I use this product on and off. It does give you a nice glow but I don't see much in the way of line reduction. Not the best c product I have used but not the worst either.
Treatments (Eye) -Kiehls - Line Reducing Eye-Brightening Concentrate

I hated this product. It has a very granular consistency and it gave off a "heat" once applied. It didn't help with fine lines. I returned it after a few weeks because the heat and consistency were just weird.
This is a very heavy cream that ironically doesn't do much for hydration. It has a weird scent. You have to emulsify it between your fingers. After a few weeks of use, my skin didn't look any better or more hydrated. I will take a pass on this one.
This is a good basic eye cream. I didn't notice any fine line reduction or lessening of dark circles, but it did keep the eye area hydrated and didn't blur my vision. I would repurchase with expectations in check.
This is a nice orangey red. It isn't too bright and is good for a professional environment. It lasts around 3-4 hours before needing reapplication. The only negative is that it's a bit dry.
This is my go to everyday work lipstick. It is a soft red on me and is perfectly appropriate for a conservative environment. The texture is smooth and somewhat sheer. It lasts about 3 hours on me before it needs to be reapplied. A really great color I hope they never discontinue!
I purchased the refill as opposed to the $170 compact. I keep it in my bag for touch ups through out the day. This is a great product - it gives you a soft radiance and doesn't highlight fine lines. I wish Guerlain would come out with a less expansive compact to put this in.

I was reluctant to buy this product because it seemed so expensive. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. It is probably the best finishing powder I ever used. It has a lovely scent and gives you a soft radiance. The only negative is that if you pull your brush out of the package too soon, some of the little balls come out with the brush, but otherwise a great product.
Tinted Moisturizer -NARS - Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer

UPDATE: I no longer recommend this product. I noticed after several hours of wear, the product oxidized on me and gave me a masky look. I will not repurchase. I love this tinted moisturizer. Much more than Laura Mercier's. The coverage is buildable, especially when applied with a flat tipped brush. It stays on all day without primer and it looks really natural - you with a healthy glow. I use Alaska.
This is great if you are a PPP which I am. It adds a subtle glow and works very well with Trish's bronzer. It does look a little scarify in the pan.
This is a great light foundation. I usually wear tinted moisturizer as foundation makes me break-out. This product is light enough not to break me out and doesn't look like a mask.It adds a healthy glow to my skin. EDIT: I have since stopped using Even Skin. They changed the packaging and even though the product is supposed to be the same, it's not. It's super oil and slides off your face after a few hours leaving you with an oil slick. Will not be repurchasing.
This is my go-to mascara. It goes on easily and doesn't smudge at all. Even though it says it is a volumizing mascara, it adds length too. The only trick is not to wait until it is dry to put on the second coat.
Concealers -Trish McEvoy - Correct and Brighten "Pen"

This is an ok concealer. I am not a fan of the click pen. It brightens dark circles but doesn't do much for puffiness. I use it on days that I am not wearing make-up for a quick eye pick me up.
