This really works for acne prone skin. It is drying, and smells nasty once you apply the toner after you rinse it off. It works though!
Great creamy black pencil. Doesn't stay on the waterline for very long, but it does create the smoky look quite nicely.
Shampoo -John Frieda - Sheer Blonde Color Renew Tone-Restoring Shampoo

I was recently told by my colorist that I needed to use a purple shampoo to fight against my blonde highlights getting too warm. She said to even use it just once a week. I haven't really noticed a difference, but then again, I didn't realize my highlights were getting warm, but I think it smells nice enough and keeps my hair soft.
I really like this product. It is my first paint pot and looks great with the purples I like to wear. Because I tend to have greasy lids, I have to use my Urban Decay primer potion first then use the fresco rose.
I don't really get this. I don't see any difference in my skin when I use it. Thankfully it came in a kit so I didn't pay full price for it. Needless to say I won't be buying this again because I'm not sure what it does. It didn't break me out of anything so I couldn't give it only one lipstick.
This is a great matte black. It can tend to be a bit sheer, but thankfully I don't use black a whole lot. I like to use this to "set" my gel liners or liquid liners. It tends to give them even more staying power.

I liked these ok, but I prefer the tissue blotting papers more. These are a plasticky substance. I might buy them again if they were on sale.
I love BE, but I don't think BE makes the best quality brushes. The brush hair is kind of coarse and doesn't wash well. Thankfully there are lots of great brushes in the world that work just as well if not better with the BE products!
I used to love this mascara, but I've found that it drops onto my cheeks throughout the day. Oh well...I've moved onto other mascaras.
I didn't really get this product. I didn't see w huge difference and I didn't think it was worth the price. I love Benefits gimmick so I think that's what I was buying! I brought it back to the store. :(
This is a really pretty warm purple with gold in it. Though I haven't used it in a while (too many eyeshadows!) I'd definitely buy it again when I run out.
Bronzers -Smashbox - Halo Glow Color Boosting Powder

This is a really nice bronzer, but word on the street is that it's been discountinued. While I like the color and the formulation, it is too expensive for something so simple.
I like this stuff though it has a strong fragrance. It is super moisturizing though!
My husband loves this. It smells masculine and he swears it keeps his acne away. I'm not sure if that's true, but since they sell this at Costco it tends to be a bit more cost effective. I wish Neutrogena would make this a little less expensive!
I really love this color and the formula. I have to use a foundation brush to apply this to get a non blotchy application, but once on it looks amazing. It's that perfect flush! The only downside for me is the packing. My lid cracked and the blusher starts to look a little icky. I have to wipe it down with kleenex every so often to make it look less dirty!
