Eye Shadow -Sonia Kashuk - Enhance Eye Color in Fleshy

Good neutral nude eyeshadow for all over lid as base. evens out any uneven skin tones you may have. smooth application, matte is not at all chalky. I like the packaging I have been carrying this one in my purse for a couple months and have not had any breakage in pan.
I have been using the hard candy lip liner in neutral for 2 weeks now. It's a creamy liner that is not long lasting. the color is a nice nude. The packaging is cheap it loosly twists up and the top is not locking. there's better hard candy products to buy.

Nice pinkish shade with brownish undertones. smooth application but not long lasting. I have this one in my makeuo kit for my purse right now. I'll use this one up but won't repurchase.

A nice product ,like the lemony scent. Moisturized my cuticles but hated to fight the package to open it. plus it's pretty pricey for a cuticle cream I prefer ones that come in pen applicator. I need something more creamy.
Moisturizers -Shiseido - The Skincare Day Moisture Protection SPF 15

trying out the shiseido line this summer so far I'm not having any luck with their products. Bought this and tried it out twice both times i had an allergic reation. Had to remove within 15 minutes and take benedryl to calm the hives. First tried on face (since it was made for the face) then I tried on my fore arm. same reaction. Giving away today to SIL. So I can't review anything else on this product except that it does have a slight scent.
My go to toner for summer months really cleans of the residue left after cleansing. Does have a strong alchol smell to it. Packaging is horrible glass container. but I use it up to the last drop so it's a great purchase. I hae super oliy skin in my t-zone and dry every where else. I usse it daily in my t-zone and every other day on the rest of my face.
Cleansers -Burt's Bees - Garden Tomato Complexion Soap [DISCONTINUED]

Love this soap I've been using it for years. Especially love it in the summer to control oily skin and to clear sweat and grime from face. smooths out my complexion.
Nice light sheer lipstick to wear on a natural day. Perfect for summer to slip in your purse. not a holy grail but worth checking out. works well to layer over matte lipsticks as well.
I was excited to try this on the recommendation of emilynoel83. Alas did not work out well for me. tried it three days under outside and indoor settings, all three days my eyeshadow creased. fyi my eyelids are extremely oily so in the morning i use blotting sheets and wash the extra oils off,pat dry and apply primer etc. on third day i even used mattifying lotion than this primer, still creased. Eyeshadows used were 1st day covergirl, 2nd day clinique, 3rd day toofaced. returned.
Eye Shadow -Revlon - Matte Shadow in Luscious Lime

Bought when i was looking for greens. very very little pigment you have to pack it on over primer. tried using it as a secondary color with other eyeshadow does not blend well. not a rebuy.
Lip Treatments -Sally Hansen - 18 Hour Lip Treatment
cwinter 6/14/2010 9:12:00 PM
I bought the clear nude nice sheer color. I only use this at home when I'm at the computer. something to put on my lips. definitly does not last 18 hours. doesn't even keep lips misturized unless you reapply continuously. The packaging is bulky. for me this was an impulse buy to try something new. wouldn't repurchase. It's not a throw away but liplites beats this lip treatment.
I like the big plastic brush because for me it equals no clumping! I like the big purple tube better than the original orange package. I get volume and a little length, not awesome lenghth but enough for daytime. I use this one for work. layer with lash blast length or avon super extend for evening. Not a HG but worth a rebuy.
I like the brush on this one. I bought it in brown maybe I should have bought it in black because I can hardly see the color on this. it does lenthen , no volume, no curl. though there is minimal smudging this does begin to flake after a couple of hours. I'm going to rebuy in the black. I like this better layered over another mascara to add length.
Eye Shadow -Sally Girl - Sally Girl White Chocolate

Wrong name for this shadow but I like the pigement and shimmer. A dark gray shadow over primer this makes a nice smoky eye.Still this fades over the course of a day. looking for something more longer lasting. Priced right to try new shades before going high end.
I bought this wanting a purple shadow work best wet or over primer. still fades over the course of the day. better purple eyeshadows out there. But these shadows are anice buy to try out shades before going high end.
