I usually think that maybellines mascaras are the best budget alternatives, but this did not impress me. It stayes on fine, and that's about all the good there is to say about it. I hate this plastic wand, and this in particular is way to wiggley! It even broke off after like 2 months! So that was the end to that mascara! Will not buy again.
Lancome sure knows how to make mascaras! This is great, I usually prefer big brushes, but this smaller wand is great! It easily builds up volume but also seperats nicely. The mascara has great staying power. However, I will not repurchase, mostly because of the price.
I love love love this little tube, it's genius. I works brilliantly on chapped and sore lips, dry elbows or as nail "oil". The price can't be beaten, and the lovely scent of vanilla is...well, lovely! I really recoment this! It's perfect as a gift, as the packaging is really cute as well! (The only downside is if you want more of it, and got of smuged on your fingers, the cap is a bit diffecoult to open.)
I love volumising mascaras on big brushes and this is a very good one. It goes on nicely and thin of you wipe it off on a tissue, for a subtle day look, or it looks fab with several thick coats. It helps my somewhat straight lashes to curl a little, anyway, enough for me not to bother about lash-curler. I will definetly buy this again sometime, but the quest for THE mascara contuinues. But this mascara is awesome!!!
Sunscreen -Garnier - Ambre Solaire Moisturising High Protection Milk Kids SPF 25

Note: Mine has SPF 30. I love the peachy scent! This sunscreen is very light and milky, and is quite easily absobed. It does leave a white cast, but not worse than any other sunscrean. It protects well, and doesn't "roll" off when reapplied, a huge bonus. And the price is excellnt! If it wearn't for the white part, it'd be a five lippie, but that and the fact that it's a bit hard to wash off even with oil (which sounds good, regarding wearing it on the beach, I don't go swimming) takes it down to a three. But untill I find the dream product, I'll use this. It's the best I've ever tried, this far...
Sunscreen -Garnier - Garnier Ambre Solaire Clear Protect 30

This is a clear sunscreen, which is nice as you don't have to rub to get the white away. It protects well, and is easy to apply. However, re-application is really difficoult as it "rolls", the first layer rolls off, and it looks awfull. And it stinks. Also, it destroys my nail-polish, it dissolvs the top-layer:(. But it's so cheap I have to give it 2 lippies.
Ok, this is a nice black mascara, with a nice brush, and a nice price. It is easy to apply- and the worst mascara ever! I've never had to curl my lashes before, this mascara even weighd my lashes down, so the looked straight. (My lashes are naturally curly) It smudges and is hard to wash off. I do not recomend this mascara!
Moisturizers -Clinique - Comfort On Call [DISCONTINUED]

This really saved my skin! My skin was left superdry after the long long winter, and in really bad condition. This thick cream, or ointment, has helped. I've used is as a night cream as it leaves the skin a little shiny, my face was a lot better in the morning. I've used it on the eye-area as well, when needed. I will not repurchase however, the packaging is awfull, I'll rather find something else in a tube.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion

This is a good moisturiser, nothing more, nothing less. It moisturises my dry skin well, but leaves it a bit more shiny and greasy than I like. After blotting it works fine under makeup. An ok product, but nothing special.
I am one my forth jar of this cream, and really, really love it. It is light, moisturizing and a little lightreflective. It helps diminishing my very dark undereye -area, and de-puff on the days needed. I recomend this to everyone, and think that it is the best eye-cream ever. But please clinique: put it in a tube!
definetly recomend this product! During last winter, my scalp condition got really, really bad. My scalp is dry, itchy and flaky. This shampoo has really helped me. The itchyness is practically gone and the flaking has deminished. I've even been able to use another shampoo inbetween! Tip: It doesn't say on the bottle, but wash hair once like you normally do, then rinse. Reapply and lather shampoo, and let it sit for 5 minutes rinse and follow with a deep-moisturising hairmasque. Your hair and scalpe will be like new! (For me however the version for dry hair is even better)

Masks -Dermalogica - MultiVitamin Power Recovery Masque

I like this masque, it feels nice and really hydrating. And I love the scent! I use this once a week, apply it a couple of hours before I go to bed, and wash it off in the morning. Be careful though, as it stains white linnen! The thing missing for me to give it five lippies is that it shan't be used around the eye-area, I quite like the idea of giving that skin a treatment also. If you can afford to, it really nice for dry skin. As i'm only 18 I can't comment on the anti-aging effect. My skin is just very dry.
One of the things I want from a hydrating masque is being able to use it as a night cream, as I'm awfully lazy. This gel-masque is not suitible for that. It is wonderful as an eye-masque, and as an after-sun. Well, it is not a favorite product, as it isn't as hydrating as I'd like it to be, my skin is very dry, it does not work at all on me. If you have normal skin, its as good as any other masque, I reckon.
I've never recievd so many compliments on how blue my eye looked. For blue eyes this is the best eyeshadow. It's a matt warm brown, with no shimmer. It perfect applied lightly for everyday-wear, and also for the smokey eye. The quality is the best, this stays on all day! It's highly pigmented, and goes on very easily.
