Treatments -Burt's Bees - Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

I have been using this nightly for about a month. The reason I got this was because I heard it was good for nail strengthening. Hasn't worked for me in that respect. My nails are still as brittle and peel just as much as before I started using it. It did heal up the two cuticles that cracked on me this winter. It took about 3 days to heal completely. It also does a good job whitening your nails and in general makes your cuticles look much nicer. Have tried this as a lip balm in a pinch, but I don't like it as one. Overall I think this product is good, esp in the winter or if you have your nails done often.
I am generally not a big fan of the 3 in 1s because the scents usually don't last past your shower and they typically don't lather worth a flip. This one smells delicious, though. I'd repurchase this again if I found it on sale. Haven't tried it as a shampoo yet. If I do I will update. *Update- This smelled so yummy I couldn't wait to use it as a shampoo. It was a bust. It was way too drying and it didn't even leave the scent in my hair. Will still use as a body wash though.
Gorgeous plummy burgandy with subtle shimmer! Only took 2 coats to get a flawless application. Perfect winter mani/pedi color! Grab a bottle if you can find it!
Even though my beloved Kiwi Lipsmacker will always be my favorite, this lipsmacker is pretty great too! I do think it smells like a cherry lifesaver! Yummy smelling, moisturizing and under 2 dollars a tube- can't beat that! For those of you looking for this I found mine at Wal-mart.

Okay I must be the only person on MUA who couldn't wear this. On me this smelled like cedar. No joke. Luckily my sis can wear this and loves it so I gave it to her. It gets a 3 from me because it obviously is nice on certain people, the price is great and the bottle is huge.

I will hate if they discontinue this! This has become my go-to, daily wear scent. It smells nice and clean. Light and subtle enough to wear to work, but also nice enough to wear out. Luckily it is on sale often (I paid 10 bucks for my bottle). The bottle is HUGE! I have been using this for maybe 6 months and my bottle is still about 80% full. Great scent, great price! Nothing but raves!
I am surprised to see the good reviews for this. I usually like mark products, but this one was one of the worst products I have ever used. I do have fairly sensitive eyes, but I have never had a problem with any eye cream before. This irritated my eyes so badly that for weeks after I stopped using it my eye area was so messed up it was flaking, sore and to the point of bleeding. I still have problems with the skin around my eyes. If you are sensitive to any kind of product, do not try this. It is not worth the risk.
This was my first MAC polish. I'm not a big fan of the brand, but I am impressed by the quality of the polish. Hate the big honking lid on the bottle, though. This is a pretty color. Shimmery dark pink. Didn't have trouble with chipping. Good product!
This is a really pretty color! I love the finish on this polish-so shiny! The application with this one went on a little gloopy for which I took off a lippie. I don't know about the Opi INRAW comparisons because to me this color has a deep pink color while INRAW does not seem pink to me at all. Oh well. This color and finish makes it seem festive to me. This polish dried super quick too! Very nice color!
Lip Treatments -Soap and Glory - Sexy Motherpucker Lip Gloss

This is a funky little lipgloss! I got the Nude shade which is a brown in the tube, but comes out on lips as a sheer high-shine caramel. This stuff really does make your lips vibrate! Not tingle, not sting...vibrate. I wouldn't call it painful just highly distracting. I didn't notice any plumping at all. This gloss is sticky and thick. It does seem to last longer than most glosses. This is my first Soap and Glory product and I would be willing to try some of their other stuff. I'm giving this 3 lippies since I don't love or hate it.
This product is what I put on right after mineral veil. It makes my look more finished. However the real reason I use it is for what it does to my eye area. When I was playing with it one day after I decided to dab my maximum coverage concealer brush in it and pat it under my eyes, inner corners of my eyes, etc. It brightened the area noticibly. I also like now to take the edge of the same brush, dip in CR and run it directly under my eyebrow. This might not work for everyone, but for me its an instant brow lift! I will continue to buy this for this trick alone! Great highlighter!
Eye Shadow -mark - I-Mark Custom Pick Eyeshadow - Java

This is a good quality eyeshadow at a great price! Not sure yet if it will become a staple, but at $4.50 per shadow, it is certainly worth a try. It is more cool toned than most browns and I like my browns warm, but some people might like that about it. I hate the flimsy plastic packaging, but I know that if they packaged them better they would raise the price. I like that these are under 5 bucks. Try a few if you haven't already.
I like this as an everyday scent in the summer. Its very light. As another reviewer said and I agree, I don't think I'd like it if were stronger. This doesn't last very long, but it is a mist so I wasn't expecting it to. I think I paid $7.99 for this on sale. I would re-purchase if it was available.
Between the Sheets is a lovely brown with a golden bronze subtle shimmer. Since getting this I've worn it about everyday. This color goes on smoothly and lasted quite a while even without a shadow primer. When I put this on in the morning with my UDPP I can literally wear this all day and night with no creasing or smudging. You get a good amount of eyeshadow for the price. I love the sleek black packaging. Tiny, but surprisingly handy mirror. This eyeshadow doesn't come with an applicator, but I use my own brushes anyway so that isn't an issue for me. Great product! Its a new HG eyeshadow for me!
I am loving this! My review is for the non-holo version of the polish. This is a gorgeous color! I'm not going to describe the color since so many have done it so well. I will say this polish dried super fast! This polish has a lovely finish! So far it wears really well! Looks like I found another staple!
