This is a nice eyeliner overall. Nice and wide so drawing a line is easy. The formula is creamy and doesn't skip or tug. This is a pretty eyeliner for a special event or clubbing, b/c the glitter is so obvious and flakes off onto my cheeks. Not exactly what I'm going for during the day at my job at the bank, LOL. Would be AWESOME if it was shimmer instead of glitter.
Really good stuff. Moistures and detangles with no weight and completely kills frizz. Adds shine and smells delish like lilacs. Would rebuy.
I have to agree w/Lucy...this is not really a scrub and shouldn't be marketed as such. Been using for a week and it hasn't done a thing to minimize the appearance of pores. At least it didn't break me out either. Would not rebuy.
Shampoo -Neutrogena - Triple Moisture Dry Scalp Soothing Shampoo

I don't have dandruff, but I do suffer from dry, itchy scalp in the colder months. I used this a few times a week last winter to keep my scalp happy, and I just picked up another tube for this winter. I love the minty smell, and it's quite moisturizing so it doesn't dry out my hair. My scalp stays itch-free, and my hair stays soft with this product. A staple in my shower every winter.
I love MAC Slimshines - they remind me of Clinique Buttershines. Rich, creamy consistency that actually moisturize in an array of pretty colors. I agree that Most Wanted is a sheer version of "O" - "O" was too harsh on me, but Most Wanted is just right. I'm a fairly pale redhead (bottle red, LOL) with green eyes and this color is quite flattering on me. I want to try more colors in the Slimshines.

I didn't care for this product. I blow my naturally curly hair out straight every day and then flat iron. After using this, my normally shiny hair was so frizzy, dull and coated. Tons of flyaways even after flat ironing. I had to throw my hair up in a ponytail as I had no time to re-wash it. Big disappointment.
I discovered this polish a few months ago and it has become a staple in my rotation. For those looking for a dark, vampy, blackened red, look no further. It truly is the color of a black cherry. The shimmer is just gorgeous when it hits the light. Amazing, and if Milani ever d/c I will promptly protest. If you haven't tried this yet, you are missing out!
Eye Shadow -Bare Escentuals - Glimmer- Cultured Pearl

Very similar to MAC Vanilla. A pretty irridescent pearly off-white color that makes a gorgeous lid wash or as a highlighter on cheekbones. Very versatile and the amount you get will last a long time. Really brings out the green in my eyes. I find that I need UDPP with BE Glimmers to keep them in place all day, but the gorgeous color payoff is worth it.
Lip Gloss -BeneFit Cosmetics - Her Glossiness - Didnt Hear It From Me [DISCONTINUED]

I will ditto the previous reviewer. I have and love Nars Turkish Delight, which is the perfect milky pink. Didn't Hear It From Me is the perfect milky peach. Pretty color, very glossy. Love!
I got this product in a trial size free with the Design Spray, which I love. My hair is naturally curly and fine, and I straighten it every day. My biggest problem is obtaining straight smooth hair that isn't flat at the roots and weighted down. I tried this product this morning, spraying into the roots all over my crown, then blew dry with a round brush away from the roots. The result was pretty nice volume with no stiffness or stickiness. The true test will be whether the volume maintains throughout the day, but so far, I'm pretty happy with this and would probably repurchase.
Another winner from OPI. I love dark, vampy colors (LPAD and Milani Black Cherry are my faves) and this is no exception. Looks very purple in the bottle, but it's actually a deep navy with violet microshimmer. The violet comes out more in artificial indoor lighting, but is a truer navy outdoors in sunlight. Absolutely gorgeous. Hopefully this shade is not LE or d/c, as I'll have to stock up.
Lash Exact was my HG - Lash Blast replaces that as best mascara I have ever tried. I love the fat brush - it finds, defines, volumizes and separates every lash with zero clumps and no smudging. I have tried everything from Diorshow to drugstore - this beats them all. Try this! Edited - this flakes on me too much. For drugstore, I'm sticking with Lash Exact or Volum' Express.
This is a gorgeous champagne gold with shimmer. As everyone else has mentioned, it's great on lids or browbones, in the inner corner of the eye and as a highlighter. Blends beautifully with other neutrals in my makeup bag. It really makes my green eyes pop. Will definitely repurchase.
This is such a gorgeous blush. The formula is not too creamy or oily. Very easy to blend, and the color is buildable. Just a tiny dab blended into the apples of my cheeks gives me that "just in from the cold" flush. It's very natural, despite being a tad scary in the container. FYI, I'm a NW20.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Blackberry Amber

This is one of B&BW's best scents, IMO. It's the perfect combination of tart blackberry with warm, spicy notes. I am definitely going to stock up on this one and wish they would make it part of their permanent line.
