I absolutely love this color, especially for spring. It lost one lippy because it is a little runny and you need three coats. It is a perfect lavender color!

I love this color! Like other people said, it's a bit runny and needs three coats. But I still think it's worth 4 lippies because once you put on those three coats, it looks fantastic!
I love this shade. I have to use three coats of polish but it goes on well. It's a great shade to wear year-round and compliments a lot of skin tones.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Eden

I absolutely love this primer. I think that the people who said that it was cakey were using too much. You only need a little bit. I love how this version of the primer covers up the blue veins on my eyelids before I put the eyeshadow on. This stuff makes cheap eyeshadows more vibrant and last longer. I will repurchase this over and over again.
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Face Lotion with SPF 15

I had been using this lotion for a while. The directions say that the irritation would go away after using it a few times. This was not the case for me. I developed redness around my chin. I have finally given up on this product and will never but it again.
I love this eyeshadow! I put it on over the Urban Decay Primer Potion and it showed up very well and lasted all day. I put it on half my lid and a shimmery pink (by Lancome) on the other half. It makes a great shimmery summer look without being too gaudy. I will re-purchase this as well as other Annabelle eyeshadows!
Scrubs -The Body Shop - Pink Grapefruit Body Scrub

I love this stuff! I have a problem with getting small bumps on my upper arms no matter how hard I scrub with my regular body washes. I read somewhere that to get rid of the bumps, you need to ex foliate (which I was doing every so often). I guess the scrubs with the small sand-type scrubbers in them weren't strong enough. The first time that I tried this stuff on my arms, the little bumps disappeared almost completely! So I disagree with people who say that this scrub doesn't ex foliate. This is now my go-to scrub for my upper arms and other trouble spots! Love it!
This mascara is just okay. I found that it clumps up really easily and I always have to comb the clumps out of my lashes after using it. I've had better results from cheaper mascaras so I won't be purchasing this one again.
Eye Makeup Remover -Lancome - Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Make-up Remover

I love this product! It's very gentle and removes everything with little effort. It goes on like water. It's just slightly oily which is good because it doesn't dry out the skin around my eyes. I will definitely buy this again.
