I bought this in Iconic, which is the green and gold shade. I prime my lids with powder, and this stuff stays on ALL day. I've had it on for over 12 hours and it's only started to migrate up into my crease, and only a little. I drew a thick line with the green, and then did the gold all over my lids. I will definitely be buying a few more of these, they're awesome!

I received a sample of this from my mom, who didn't need it. I've been using the Neutrogena remover for years, but I think I'll be switching! I've only used it once, but it did a fantastic job. I barely rubbed it in before rinsing and every speck of eye makeup was gone.
Misc Beauty Tools -Tweezerman - Pointed Slant Tweezers

I had a pair of the mini slant tweezers for a couple years and LOVED them. I took them on a trip on the weekend, and not thinking just tossed them in my makeup bag. They ended up getting banged up beyond usability, and wound up buying a new set. I could've sent them back to the company to get fixed, but I couldn't wait that long! These get every hair, including ones you didn't know you had. Like another reviewer I have hands on the small side, so I find the mini size perfect for every day. They are expensive, but they are definitely worth the price. I will not use another tweezer.
By far my favourite of these oversized pencils is Slate, a cement-y brown shade. It's my go-to eye shadow most mornings, I love how it applies and it lasts and lasts on me. I have tried a couple other shades, Vanilla and Eggplant and didn't like them nearly as well. I found the colour didn't apply evenly for those shades, but I do like to use Eggplate under Slate once and awhile.
I meant to buy Marcelle's Ultimate Lash but picked this one up by mistake. It's a nice everyday mascara for someone who doesn't want thicker lashes or a lot of drama. I love the brush, but dislike the skinny tube. I find when I push the wand back down the mascara goops out the top and it's wasteful. I'd buy again in a pinch, but when this tube is done I'll try the Ultimate Lash.
I bought the pink/purple-ish one, and wow it's awful! The pink end barely shows up, and the purple is slightly darker. I was afraid to press down at all in case the stick broke, and the cap on the other end kept coming off. I don't know about staying power yet, but even with powder on first I'm guessing it won't last. **EDIT: Wow, okay. 10 minutes later I check the shadow and it's already migrated into my creases. Horrible product.
Deodorants -The Body Shop - DeoDry Dry-Effect Deodorant

Today is day 3 of using the floral scented stick during a heat wave. I didn't have high expectations because I find even the so-called clinical strength anti-perspirants don't work for me, but I've been pleasantly surprised! I don't find the scent overpowering at all, it's quite nice. And I've stayed pretty dry, no worse than regular anti-perspirants if not a little better. When my stick runs out I will gladly pay the full price of $8 for a new one!
I bought a tube of this lipstick because I thought it was a fun colour, and I'm a fan of Gaga. I really like it, and I wish I had bought a backup tube. It reminds me of a 60's beach party! I also found it to be pretty moisturizing, with good staying power.
I LOVE this mascara. I've tried a lot over the past few years, and Plush Lash is by far my favourite. I've been using it for a couple of months now, and love how much volume it gives my lashes. I will definitely be re-purchasing.
Skincare - Body -The Body Shop - Sweet Lemon body butter
GeekyMcGee 5/18/2010 9:27:00 PM
I LOVE this body butter. It does smell really floral in the tub, but I find once I've put it on the lemon scent comes out more. It's my new favourite body butter, I hope they don't discontinue it any time soon.
I liked how it thickened my lashes, but I found that it took forever to dry and smeared quite a bit.
Eye Makeup Remover -Marcelle - Soothing Eye Make-Up Remover Gel

I really liked this when I started to use it. It didn't sting when I got in my eyes, and it removed my makeup well. But after a few weeks I noticed the skin under my eyes was red and tender. When I'd wake up in the morning, my skin would be really dry and there were flakes of skin peeling off. I switched to a different remover and the problem's cleared up.
