I love this shade! It's the perfect color for summer. It can look more red, orange, or pink depending on the lighting. A very pretty, flattering shade!

This hasn't really worked for me. I'm not sure if my skin needs a stronger BP %, but it doesn't appear to have any affect on making my pimples go away.

Really nice lip balm! It's hard to find a sheer lip balm that doesn't have tons of sparkles, stickiness, and an annoying scent. This is just about perfect! Sheer pink color that's flattering on practically everyone, feels light on the lips, and no heavy scent. It's a little expensive for a drugstore lip gloss, but I'm certain I'll purchase again. I like this FAR better than the lip shimmers, which dried out my lips. I only wish it also had SPF. I'll definitely purchase again!
I was surprised by this mascara. I only bought it because I needed a waterproof formula for a trip, and I picked this one up because there was a sale on Revlon products. I love the big brush (I have very long lashes) and I think it gives clean, natural volume without clumping. A keeper! I don't know if I will pick it up again, because I love trying new mascaras, but it may be the one I go to when I need a waterproof formula.

I have been looking for a light lipgloss FOREVER that doesn't have a million sparkles, a good amount of color, and with SPF. It has seemed impossible to find, but I LOVE this new gloss. I have Sunny Berry, which is a perfect rosy, natural lip color. As the previous reviewer noted, the shape of the tube is a little odd. I'm also not a huge fan of the melon smell. But I love the color and SPF, so I will continue to buy! I also bought Petal Glow - great color, but too shimmery. It almost looked frosted on my lips. Love the non-shimmery shades, though!
This eyeliner is not bad...but not perfect. I bought it for my waterline and it doesn't quite stay there. It actually fades away in a couple of hours. But I've noticed if I touch it up again, it stays on well the rest of the day. So I'm not sure if I will repurchase, but it seems okay for now.

I'm surprised there are so many bad reviews for this product. It has worked well for me. I suddenly started getting chest acne about 6 months ago and it has really helped to contain it. I noticed a difference when I ran out and wasn't using the product for a few weeks. I also put a little bit on an exfoliating sponge and use it on my legs for ingrown hairs. I really love the scent, too.
I am seriously shocked at how great this product is. I have had acne-prone skin my whole life, and have put my skin through quite a lot of treatments. Until recently, my skin always got used to the treatments and I could moisturize with a little Cetaphil and be done. The past few months, even though I switched to a gentle facewash and use a heavy cream every night, my skin just seemed to be getting drier, and my acne was still popping up. A friend recommended Decleor and I originally went to get the Ylang Ylang oil, but the counter only had a Rose D'Orient sample. I was pretty hesitant to put oil on my skin, but I really couldn't be more pleased with the results. The oil moisturizes wonderfully, and I really enjoy the smell. I've had a few very small pimples pop up, but they've cleared pretty quickly. What's even more impressive is it has virtually healed some acne scars I thought I was going to have FOREVER. I've had dark red marks on my cheek for about about a year, yet within two weeks they have virtually gone. It just confirms I have really not been nourishing my skin. I would highly recommend purchasing Decleor on eBay. You can buy salon sizes for just a little bit more than their retail sizes. Additionally, the sample size comes with a pump top so you don't have to deal with the mess of tipping out the bottle to get a few drops.

I bought this because it seemed my scalp was getting oilier and I remembered using this in the past. Now, I LOVE the smell! I really loved using this shampoo. But I had to stop because my hair is very think, and it doesn't lather well. This means my hair doesn't get as clean, and I was having to use gobs and gobs of it in order to clean my hair. It ended up being a waste of money. Back to Redken!

This WAS my HG remover. Sadly, after using it for about 8 months, I developed a horrible eyelid allergy which would make my eyelids red, puffy, and peel. I wasn't sure what was causing it at first, but the allergy stopped when I stopped using this makeup remover. Too bad, but I moved on to Ponds Cold Cream, which is hypoallergenic and I actually think does a better job of removing eye makeup.

I've been looking for an alternative to BP, as it appears it doesn't work anymore on my face. I have to say this product is quite effective. It's not MAGIC. It doesn't make pimples disappear completely overnight, but it does reduce and flatten them quite a bit, and then they should go away in a few days. It's expensive, but it works. The only reason this doesn't get a 5 from me is the absurd cap design. This product is very THICK, and the cap is a little well. So what ends up happening is you try to squeeze out as much as you need, but a lot of product ends up sticking to the inside of the cap. The best way to avoid wasting half the product is to unscrew the cap completely and dispense directly from the tube.
This mascara is okay. I've been a Diorshow addict but have recently tried to switch it up with a few drugstore (read: cheap) mascara. This can make your lashes look pretty good, but it does clump. I use a lash comb and the final result is pretty good.

I really like this gloss. I'm always on the hunt for something with a touch of color as well as SPF. This is VERY sheer but it's the gloss I reach for the most when I need to moisturize. I also like that it's hard, so I can picture it lasting forever. It's definitely something I'll pick up again.

When I want long-lasting color, this is one of my favorite picks. It's very similar to a MAC shade I wore for awhile, although far less expensive! It's long lasting and I think the berry color is universally flattering. The only downside is I wish it didn't have a gloss topcoat and instead had one that's more like chapstick. It seems like glosses tend to leak after awhile and I always run out of gloss before product.

I bought this liner primarily for its touted staying quality, and that's what I'm rating it on. I use this below my lash line and it fades more than any other liner I've tried. Complete waste of money.
