I was definitely drawn into the fun packaging and of course the name of the mascara, but this is the worst ever. It flaked like crazy and really weighed the curl right out of my lashes. But I felt like when I looked in the mirror an hour later my lashes were gone. Def won't buy again. I have never disliked a mascara so much
I have had this palatte now for about 6 years and the eyeshadow is still in wonderful condition. I love the packaging, the sparkle metal on the outside is what drew me to it. Not to mention the price isn't bad, considering when the deluxe eyeshadows cost on their own.
Self Tanners -L'Oreal - Sublime Bronze Airbrush-Effect Dry Mist BODY

I like this self spray way more than the neutrogena one because the nosel is easier to spray contiuously. The color it produces is really nice and natural looking. I tried it yesterday and a few hours later random people were complimenting my tan. This also doesn't have the awful self tanning smell that alot of others do. This was also cheaper than the neutrogena.
This has completely changed my skin! I am a 23 yr old that still experiences break outs, has oily skin, and large pores. This product has cleared up my skin, evened out my skin tone slightly, and even made that annoying forehead wrinkle go away. My only disappointment in the packaging is that they stopped using glass bottles and started using plastic.
I have huge pores and oily skin. I am 23. I have noticed a huge difference in the overall feel of my skin and my pores have gotten so much smaller. As for the price, it may be a little expensive, but there are so many more expensive serums out there, and heck! this is a serum! its going to be a little pricey because this is the product that does the dirty work for your skin. additional comments (6/20/11): I just want to say, after seeing some negative recent comments, that I have noticed that even after I don't use this for a week or so, my skin does not "go back to normal." I have seen huge improvements in my skin texture. It is a serum, and I can feel the product sink in instantly (I do use the Olay Pro-X face machine). The serum is also a skin refinisher, so thats the serum working to smooth out the skin and make it over time softer and smaller pores. The website says "In 4 weeks notice a 69% difference." I have been using Lauder only since December 2010 and with the serum my skin has changed dramatically. Please fully understand the product and what it is supposed to deliver before bashing it.
Styling Products -TRESemme - Instant Heat Tamer Spray

I'm a huge fan of tresseme products in general, I feel like they trump a lot of salon brands. I love this heat spray. I have fine hair with blonde highlights and this product is amazing. I use it mainly for when I blow dry my hair (I don't do a lot of curling or any straightening) and I feel like my hair is protected because the next time I wash my hair it still feels nice and doesn't get as tangly.
I got a sample of this foundation, the color match was awesome, there is a fantastic color range. The foundation was nice and light like I like, but I don't really know about the whole "brings out the inner radiance" thing. The reason why this gets a bad score- It does not have staying power, and it instantly settles into lines when I smile and in my forehead when I raise my eyebrows and the lines stay. I am not old and do not have lines and this foundation makes me look old.
Liquid -Estee Lauder - Double Wear LIGHT Foundation SPF10

I would never wear foundation because everything broke me out and I hated the heavy feeling most foundations feel like. This is the only foundation I have ever worn and will wear forever. It also has oil-control properties which is great for my oily skin. I love the narrow color range, makes things easier. I know when I am a 2 and a 3 and the foundation is sheer enough that even if my face is a 2, a 3 doesn't look bad or "off".
Self Tanners -Neutrogena - MicroMist Tanning (Medium 2 shades darker)
danammelvin 5/25/2011 2:57:00 AM
I love this self tanner! It isn't smelly at all like most tanners, and for an inexpensive one it is very surprising! It almost had a crisp floral smell. The product comes out very fine and colorless, which is ok. I followed some other reviewers advice and did a quick rub-down to make sure nothing would be streaky. I also used a very emolient moisturizer first. Also the tan last for a week with one application and the color was not orangey. I had people asking me if I just got back from vacay. Also I got about 4 VERY VERY generous applications from one can. I love this product!
Self Tanners -Victoria's Secret - Beach Sexy Gradual Tan Moisturizer SPF15

I love this self tanner. I have been hearing about VS self tanners for awhile, and decided to try this one. It does not have that awful offensive self tanner smell and it sort of smells light and citrusy. The color is a natural golden bronze tan color, I have actually gotten so many compliments on my tan and people thought I just got back from vacay. Also, the color lasts sooo long. I bought it on a monday, tried it on monday, tuesday, wed and thurs, and it is now sunday and my color hasn't faded!
