Lana is my best friend! This is the only bag big and sturdy enough for my makeup. I don't have a vanity, so, I keep everything in it, and it stays nice and organized. It is also very easy to clean, and adorable! I have gotten tons of compliments when traveling. My friends and I talk about her like she's a person! LOL! If they need to touch up makeup at my house, I always say, "hang on, I'll go ask Lana..."
This is my new FAVORITE blush! I love it even more than my Nars! I got Strawberry Tart, and it is such a complex and fresh baby pink color! It is hard to mess it up when you are applying it, and it is probably the only blush I have ever worn that was still fresh looking (and there!) midday :) I am VERY happy!
These are the only things that have ever successfully whitened my teeth. I drink coffee, and red wine and those do a number on your teeth. I do wish that these were a bit longer so I could whiten further back. YES they make your teeth hurt (pretty bad sometimes), and YES they are expensive, but the bottom line is they do whiten your teeth, and with minimal effort on your part. No trays to prepare, or solution to brush on, just a little tooth sticker :)
I didn't like this product at all. It didn't whiten my teeth at all. I actually didn't notice any taste, stinging or anything else. It was like brushing thick water on my teeth, and did just about as much. It may be cheaper than the Crest Strips, but in my opinion, that is the only advantage.

What a fun product! It comes with 4 different colors. I got the lightest one, and they are all wearable with yellow undertones. The highlighter didn't seem to do much, but when I was out, and caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror, I did notice it. The bronzer could be used as a really natural blush. My one complaint is that I wish it had a mirror. And GEEZ! Mine was $11 at CVS! No fair!
Love this color! Everyone scared me about being pale and blonde with this one, but I love it! I have REALLY dark lips and this color toned them done nicely!
I am still pretending to like this product, because it was a bit expensive. I have to say, I am not happy with the brush. The wax is a bit to hard, and although I was excited about them, the little tweezers don't work so good. The color is also kind of dark for light brows.

I gotta say this is a GREAT eye cream. I also love PTR Oxygen Eye relief, but not the price of it. This is a great alternative. At first I was not too impressed, but I have been using it nightly for the past few weeks, and I wake up to smooth moisturized eyes. I don't look tired when I wake up anymore! This is definately a keeper! Stick to it, it will payoff eventually!
Great color! I don't have anything else like it. Actually I have a nail polish that compliments it perfectly, but no other lipstick. I love it! So unique! I am noticing that I like the cool toned lipglass' the best. I LOVE Nico, and now this one!

When evaluating a waxing product it really has to do with what is the most important thing to you. The most important thing to me is that it remove ALL of the hair in which ever spot you are using it. This product DID. It was VERY messy, I know all waxes are, but this one is not washable, so it was extra messy. The spatulas were wooden. You only get 2 and one broke as I was spreading. They seem to give you a lot of strips, but I used them all before I could finish both legs (thank goodness, I have hundreds of those things from the Nair Kits). It was difficult to spread, and I had to reheat it 3 times, but bottom line: it removed all of the hair on my legs, bikini line, and eyebrows. It did not leave my legs red or irritated. It was also very cheap. Only $8. I would not recommend this kit if you have not waxed before, as it is not very forgiving, but if you know what your doing, it really works.
I really like that this product is washable, and the strips reusable. It is basically the same thing as Nads, but a lot cheaper. The only thing that I don't like is that it always leaves some hair (also like Nads).
I REALLY didn't like this product. I tried the demi-nude. Looked pretty in the tube, and on my hand, but it was AWFUL on my mouth. WAY TO MATTE. It looked like I rubbed peach chalk on my lips. It looked so bad, that my husband said "geez, what is that stuff on your lips?!"
I love this powder. I see where it may be bizarre for someone with darker skin, but I am super pale. You can't try to get the coverage of regular powder with this, but it is great for nose powdering and taking down the redness of blemishes. You just have to use it lightly. I keep one in purse for nose shine, and one in my m/u bag, and use it after my regular powder to tone down any red areas.
This is a great concealer. I use the lightest shade which has yellow undertones that are usually hard to find in drugstore concealers. It is smooth, does not crease, and lasts all day!
I really was not happy with this or the conditioner. I could not even finish the tiny bottle (that cost like $10). It did NOTHING for shine, the smell was bizarre, and it seemed to weigh my hair down.
