I was using this foundation in Shade 101 and I liked the color match, but I hated the packaging. The cap never screwed on correctly and the product started to thicken on me. This looked great over the CDP primer, but I've now switched the KA SSE.
I purchased this in Alaska and it just wasn't a good color match for me. I liked the nice light texture, though. Had a bit too much pink for my skin tone.
I stray, but I always come back! This product looks great over Estee Lauder lash primer. If you love the look of Definicils, you will love it even more over the primer. This is my HG eye look!
I felt somewhat "conned" into buying this cleanser after a very pushy make-up artist at Saks did a makeover. I didn't really like the colors he used, so I opted to purchase some skincare which I thought I could always use. My skin just didn't feel clean afterward. But I kept trying as I felt "it's NARS, it must be good." I think I'll stick to his make-up.
I use this in combination with Desire with Zen being more of a contour shade. I really love this combo! I'm fairly pale and this color creates a very natural contour/or lightly tanned look.
I didn't find that this product lived up to the "hype." The brush felt very large to me and I didn't find that it did anything all that dramatic to my lashes. It does tend to smear on hotter days, but I think it would be Ok for the Winter months.

I also received the sample from the NM event and proceeded to swap for as many samples as I could get. I used it for a short time, liked it, but being a fickle gal, I am now using Epicuren products and really liking them. It will be a miracle if I can stick with one line for a whole year!
I thought this might be a good product for small back breakouts in the Summer, but this didn't seem to do the trick. It reminds me of calamine lotion! It felt somewhat heavy on my skin and I didn't feel as though I was able to rinse it clean. I'm preferring the Glymed Sal-X cleanser right now.
I loved the smell of this powder, but I didn't love the packaging. Not great for keeping out the moisture in the bathroom. So, it did get a little clumpy over time.
I purchased this brow gel on E-bay as I was doing a search for brow gels. I really love this...better than the BB eye brow shaper. I have brown hair with blonde highlights and this is a perfect match for my brows--not too dark and not too light. Looks very natural!
This is one of the few NARS products that I didn't really care for. It didn't do much to volumize or lengthen...in fact, I think it made my lashes look worse. Spend your dollars on NARS eye duos or blushes!

I had been using the Shiseido Body Accelerator and I thought this might be a less expensive alternative. Boy, was I wrong! I love the Shiseido lotion so much, but I just couldn't get used to the fragrance or the heavier texture of the Avon lotion. Back to Shisedio! Sorry!

My husband and I both love this conditioner! I would love to find something that achieved the same results, but cost a bit less. But, it did a really great job of detangling my "hard to detangle" hair. I loved the fragrance and the texture of this conditioner.
I truly love the Epicuren cleanser and moisturizers that I use..but this product was a bit disappointing. It had a strong tea tree fragrance which turned me off a bit. But, it does make your lips feel moisturized.
This was one of those products that I never would have purchased if it hadn't been for MUA. The light hand is essential, but once you master that--you will get the most beautiful glow. I use just a slight swoosh on top of Zen. It gives you that Ralph Lauren healthy luck (without the sun!).
