I use the waterproof variety of this mascara because of my oily skin. If I didnt it would be all over my face, not because of the formula, but because my skin seems to desolve mascara, if I am not careful. But I really like it. I love big full brushes, that that's a plus. I love thicking mascara, and it does that. I love how it makes my bottom lashes look. Alot of time I dont wear mascara on my bottom lashes, but this mascara makes them look great. I don't know how to describe it. Its a great price, and better than some mascara's I have paid $20+ for. And even thought I will buy again, I will always have 2 or 3 mascaras I use on a regular basis. I seem to be on a never ending quest for the all powerful, magic mascara.
I love this sent. I wore it all the time when I lived in Hawaii, so to me is smells tropical and heavenly. It is a very sweet sent, and things go on sweet on me, so it is like wearing candy. I have purchased twice.
I don't think it is fair to say any perfume is crap. It changes to your body chemestry. This one happens to be lovely on me. Like a warm vanilla cherry. So seductive and delicious. It lasts a long time, and both men and women ask me what it is, and tell me that they love it. I wore it years ago, and drifted to many other sents (at the moment I have 4, I love perfume!) but this one is my favorite, and unless a miricle happens, it alway will be.
Lip Gloss -Clinique - Glosswear Sheer Shimmer in Mystic

I first got this as a little sample with sereval other colors for Christmas, from my Dad, who got it for my sisters as well. I didnt use any of the other colors, and ended up adopting all for my sisters mini sized mystics. When they were all gone I got a big size. This color makes my lips look like jeweled berries. Everyone always asks what I am wearing. It has a stick texture, so sometimes I wear it to the gym, or running, because it says on so well (and I cant stand when my lips get dry at the gym, and chap stick goes away fast when exercising). I have bought this many times since that Christmas, and will many more.
Its a good eyelash curler, but I don't see the magic hype that lots of people talk about. It has lasted awhile, and I really like that. But it's just an eyelash curler.

Ok, this gloss is just wonderful. There is no stick texture. The shine comes from pigment, and giltter. I would say the texture is a lipstick, chapstick, lipgloss mix. And the coverage is a lipstick, lipgloss mix. Lots of color and shine. I know some girls love the sticky, so this may not be for you. I like both. But this makes my lips look SO Fantastic! And I ADORE this color. I cant live with out it. Even though it is over $20 for a gloss! (my one down side I guess. I am not use to paying over $15).
This is my perfect old movie star red. I gave it only 4 lippies on over all rating because the formula is dry, to achieve that perfect matte look, and so I have to add a chapstick, or similar, so it does not bother me. But it is a beautiful, dramatic color.
Less stinky than most! Also gave me a lovely color faster than Jergins, or Avino. Downside...Why no face tanning products Dove??
This blush is so beautiful! I got really sick of layering and layering lighter colors so they would show up on my naturally olive skin. This color is a lovely dark berry red. I use hardley any. I do one light sweep with a fan brush, and then brush up my cheek bones, and sometimes on the apple of my cheek. And it is so beautiful, and natural looking. NOTE: Use Sparingly, and look lovely, use too much and look like clown. TIP: USE A FAN BRUSH WITH THIS COLOR.

I was the girl who could never wear anything but a skin colored shimmer on her eyelids because after an hour every thing was a goopy line in my eyelid crease anyways. The oily skin curse! I ached for lime greens, steely grays, and lavender lids. I gave up. Then one blissful day at sephora the sales man SWORE on his life that this would work for me. It would be the Answer To All My Problems! And what did I do?? I didn't believe him! But my sister did, and she purchased it. I tried hers once a few months later and BAM! I was in love. Now, even if I sleep with my make up on over night... (I know sin of sins, but it happens sometimes, right girls?) my eyeshadow is still PERFECT in the morning! And its not just boring colors anymore, I am trying everything! This is pure bliss!
