Powdery rose. Doesn't live up to the hype imo.
I'm returning this one. I'd hoped it could replace Blushbaby, but alas it is neon orange on me.
Great pink blush! Very subtle but still girly. This is not dark at all, but you can build the color if you want to. I like the texture of the Sheertone blushes- very silky and blend well.

Absolutely gorgeous! Taupe-silver shimmer. An extreme version (darker with a more metallic finish) than Vega. Smooth and long lasting. I hate the cheapo hard to open packaging, but what can ya do...
Meh, I have had this for awhile and haven't noticed shedding. However, it's sort of scratchy. Wouldn't buy again.

I really like Heist, the greenish grayish color. I would repurchase that separately. I use the lighter colors as wash colors. They aren't too shimmery which is nice. The dark green isn't very useful for me, but I may experiment and use it as a liner more often. Overall, very nice quality shadows.
Paula B says the exfoliants in this are ineffective. I think she's full of crap. I leave this on overnight with no irritation. It makes blemishes much less noticable and leaves skin soft. Will definitely repurchase. UPDATE: Dec 2009- the first tube lasted a long time, but I have repurchased and it's still one of my favorites. I have sensitive skin that can't usually handle chemical exfoliants. This is gentle and effective.

OW! This hurt sooo bad. I withstood the burning and woke up the next morning with 2 zits. I tried to finish up the sample but as soon as I put it on I had to scrub it off. I've tried Alpha Hydrox 10% and it didn't burn nearly as much.
Ok, I'm in the minority, but this definitely isn't worth $10. It's an ok balm, the smell isn't offensive, but it doesn't last very long. Won't buy again.
Beautiful! So this is the "glow from within" I've been hearing so much about. On me, this is light brown peach with enough pink to look natural and not orange. Very finely milled with good staying powder. Also very buildable. Only complaint is the packaging- it seems rather fragile.

Hi, my name is strawberry Vaseline. Not bad, but not worth five bucks.
Lip Treatments -Jack Black - Intense Therapy Lip Balm spf 25

Holy Grail. I don't say that often, especially with lip balms. First of all, full spectrum SPF without menthol (Softlips I'm talking to you!) And this stuff moisturizes like no other. Seriously, it doesn't need to be reapplied every hour. Wow. As for the tingle, I like it. I think it feels like Burt's Bees but just lasts a little longer. UPDATE: Dec 2009- more than 5 years later, still going strong with this! I also love the scented varieties.

This is exactly like a friggin juicy tube for so much less. I have the clear pink which is all clear, no pink. Good citrus smell, and actually wears a little more comfortably than a JT imo.

The pencil is wonderful, the color is rather ordinary. It's definitely gray, not black. Not silver, not really blue but just a soft stormy gray that makes a great smoky eye. I would buy again if I had $22 to spend on an ordinary color.
Great pencil, I like the smudger, so now the important part- the color. It looks a bit crayola-ish but when it's on it looks like olive green, but a bit brighter and deeper. I won't buy again because I don't think a green eyeliner does much justice for my green eyes. This would look amazing on brown eyes and maybe even blue eyes.
