Moisturizers -Vaseline - Deep Moisture Creamy Formula

Have used and purchased this on and off for many, many years. This winter is drying my skin very badly and this is about the only thing that will protect and prevent further drying.
These are great lip balms. No fragrance, taste or sticky/tacky feel. I have the Brownie and Rosy, both have no shimmer etc., just very pretty shine and a little bit of color. I prefer these to lip glosses.
I've heard so many good things about these polishes, so I hope I bought a bad bottle. This polish NEVER sets/hardens/drys! Five hours later I could still leave a mark in the polish touching it with my nail. Then, I was able to just push/peel the polish off completely. I just can't figure this out, I've never had this happen with any polish. I won't rebuy.
Eye Makeup Remover -Estee Lauder - Gentle Eye Makeup Remover

I rather like this eye makeup remover. It takes very little product with gentle wiping to dissolve my non waterproof mascara, it leaves very little residue. It doesn't sting my eyes. This was a gwp.
I've used this daily for about 5 days, I'm a bit disappointed. First, it doesn't completely cover my horribly purple under eye area, it is just a bit too dark for my skin coloring (the light is too light) and it seems to need a lot of touching up throughout the day. I will use this and continue on my search for the perfect under eye concealer. However, for $6 it isn't terrible either. I won't rebuy and I would rate it about a 3.5 lippy.
Very disappointed with this conditioner. It leaves my hair feeling dry and tangled. I've used a good half bottle thinking the problem was my hair or the water. I just switched back to my clairol conditioner and realized it isn't my hair, it's the Aussie conditioner! The bottle is very difficult to open. I will not rebuy.
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst in Soft Rose [DISCONTINUED]

This is a very pretty muted rose, a tad brighter than I would have liked, it seems more pigmented than the last color I tried (coral). No smell, very moisturizing, beautiful case. I would not call this a long lasting lipstick, it is still on the order of really nice lipgloss. I doubt I would rebuy this color. It is a little bit too cool for my skin tone, I warm the color with a pretty gold lip gloss.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Expertwear Eye Shadow Quad in Mocha Motion

This is a really nice neutral quad. The highlight shade is too frosty for me, but the other three are lovely and fairly matte. The dark taupe is great as a liner too.
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Anti Wrinkle SPF 15

I have been using this cream for 2 months, twice a day and am ready to review it. I chose the cream with the least amount of active ingredient to begin with, my skin is very sensitive. It moisturizes nicely and feels light, this has no fragrance. I have had no problems using it. The tube is ok, not the greatest. Did I notice results? Yes. Minor, but yes. My lines are softer and less noticeable around my eyes. Next time I purchase, I will pick up the stronger version too, I am hoping for even better results.
Pros: creamy, doesn't cake, nice to have a lipstick type tube Cons: the light color has a bit too much pink for my skin color, the coverage is on the sheer side (it's gone almost as soon as I apply it).
The matte taupe brown is absolutely beautiful! However, the other two colors have very little color to them and are much too shimmery for me.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Expert Wear Eyeshadow in Champagne Fizz
Seadoo 7/1/2010 7:33:00 PM
This is a beautiful skin toned shadow. It creates a lovely neutral eye base by evening out minor discoloration. Perfect to apply other shadow over or leave as is. It is called matte, but is not a true matte, there is just enough glow to it to keep it from looking powdery and flat. Packaging is not very good, but price and shadow are.

Polishes -Maybelline - Express Finish Nail Polish (any color)

Bought this in Cocoa Motion. It's a very pretty pinky/mauvy/brown, medium color. I was hoping for it to be a bit lighter, but it's very pretty. So far I've had this on my toes for 11 days! It only just started to chip off of one toe. I applied it over a clear gloss and needed to use 2 coats, it does look a little streaky with just one. It has a beautiful high shine.
I am not sure this is flattering to my skin color, I have pigmented lips and yellow/olive skin. Due to the sheerness of this, I think I can get away with it. Anyway, the review: Beautiful case, nice creamy lipstick with no scent, or shimmer to it. However, there isn't much pigment in this, it is sheer. It settles into my lip lines and doesn't stay on any longer than a lip gloss. I feel it is on the expensive side for a drugstore lippy and there are better ones out there for less. I wouldn't rebuy, but will use it up.
