I received this as a gift and so far I am pretty impressed. I have only used it as an undereye concealer. I usually put foundation under my eyes to cover the small amount of darkness I have there and it usually gets a little cakey looking. This pencil is very creamy and go on really smooth. It also does not get cakey looking. I moisturize under my eyes before I use this but I definitely like it so far. I haven't used it on my face yet just my eyes.
I love this mascara!! I bought it on a whim. I usually buy the regular diorshow but I wanted to dry something new. This mascara stays on forever, gives length, volume and dark, dramatic lashes. I am really impressed by this mascara! I would definitely repurchase. The only negative about this product is the price.
This is a gorgeous color and it is a great quality powder just like the rest of the Benefit powders. I would not recommend it if you're really fair or have a lot of pink undertones naturally to your skin. Love the glow this powder gives me!
Moisturizers -Aveda - Outer Peace Acne Relief Lotion
babygirl95 3/7/2011 2:28:00 AM
I love this lotion. I have suffered from mild acne for years and I have combination skin. I think this lotion moisturizes just enough without causing my skin to become more oily and without causing acne. I would not recommend this lotion for people with normal or dry skin. This is for people who have combination skin or oily skin. I think the Aveda Botanical Kinetics hydrating lotion is a better choice for individuals with acneic skin but who have dry or normal skin. I like that this has the %0.5 salicylic acid in it to control breakouts and has anti irritants like tamanu and boswellia to control redness. Would definitely repurchase despite the high price point. I love Aveda!!!
I love this powder. It gives me a nice natural glow. I love the hints of shimmer and the plum undertones it has. It is definitely one of my favorite blushes. I used to wear it on my eyes a lot, over a brown shadow. It looked great as a shadow as well. I've had my box almost 3 years and I still haven't run out yet but I'm definitely getting to the bottom.
Powder -Clinique - Perfectly Real Compact Powder Foundation

I love clinique complexion items. I wear this in shade 106 (N) which matches me perfectly. I have had this for a couple years and I have hit pan already so I'll probably throw this powder out soon. I think this is makes a good finishing powder when applied over my clinique superfit foundation. When I applied it with a sponge it accentuates dry patches on my skin. Sometimes I apply it over my superfit foundation with a buffing brush for more coverage. I still think this powder is light to medium coverage. When my skin is more oily in the summer I think this powder helps keep oiliness in check. I have acne-prone skin and this product doesn't make me break out. My compact broke a couple weeks ago so it's very flimsy. I still haven't decided if I will repurchase this or not. I think it's a pretty good powder though.
I love this stuff. I bought it on a whim and I'm glad that I did. I think it was like $13 so it's a little pricey for drugstore but it's great quality. I love the color of this. It just gives me a nice natural glow on my temples and under my eyes. I have gotten compliments on my skin when I wear this stuff. I don't wear it every day. I only wear it with certain eye and cheek combinations. It's a nice addition to my makeup bag. My only gripe is the packaging. I wish it were a bit smaller.
I love this bronzer. I use it every single day. I'm on to my second box. My first box lasted me for 2.5 years. This bronzer is the perfect matte shade. It isn't orangey either. I can use it when I'm more pale or when I'm tanner. It lasts on my face all day. I love this stuff. I will keep rebuying.
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - Carbon Black Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner

I love this one even more than the original, if it is possible. It is the perfect blackest black shade out there. The brush is amazing. It is nice and stiff and really lets you create a thin line if that's what you want to do. This stuff stays on my eyes really well despite the fact that it is not waterproof. It's a great product. It's become a little difficult to find, so when I do find it, I definitely stock up! I think people are beginning to find out about this gem and buying them all up! HG status. Love this liquid eyeliner!
I love this!!! It has the perfect stiff brush for creating a nice thin line. I have used it for years and I will continue to use it. HG status for sure!
I was not impressed with this mascara. It didn't do anything for my lashes. I would not repurchase.
This is definitely one of the better drugstrore mascaras that I have used. I like the thin brush. It is great for the lower lashes. I think this mascara definitely lengthens my lashes and helps hold a curl better than other mascaras. It even helps curl lashes when you don't have time to use an eyelash curler before. I think that the product in the tube does not dry up as quickly as other mascaras I have used from the drugstore. This mascara is a little difficult to find at times. I have used it for about five years. I use it over other volumizing mascaras. Would definitely repurchase.
I don't know what the big deal is. I think this stuff kind of sucks. I love a dramatic lash and a smokey eye. I'm not an all natural girl when it comes to eye makeup. That being said, back when I was into the all-natural eye look, the quality of this stuff was not up to par. It gets super clumpy and it makes my eyelashes look stumpy and short. I wear mascara to make my lashes pop. This mascara is just not cutting it. I would not repurchase.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

LOVE this!! HG for sure. I have been using this for years and I don't think I will ever stop repurchasing this.
Cleansers -Bliss Labs - Fabulous Foaming Face Wash
babygirl95 2/12/2011 9:15:00 PM
I got a full size of this product for free and I was determined to use it up because it's expensive but I'm really not that impressed with this cleanser. It smells good but I can only use it once a week or so because I think it clogs the pores. I even tried it with my clairsonic and it didn't really work any better. I have combination skin. I would not purchase this product. It's going to take me forever to finish the bottle I have now.
