I have this in waterproof. I am in LOVE with this stuff. No flakes. No smudges. No melting on my face. I was rained on. This stuff paired with Unstoppable eyeliner meant no weeping clown face. I don't need many coats (2-3 tops) because I already have pretty long lashes but I love dramatic lashes without the false look. I'll stick to this for awhile.
This stuff is AMAZING! 1/3 of the price of Bath and Body Works Twilight Woods and smells better too. The nourishing body cream moisturizes as well as B&BW but without the greasy feeling. I'm in LOVE with this stuff.
Polishes -Wet 'n' Wild - Fergie Hollywood Walk of Fame

I love stars! Really do. I have so much star crap it is ridiculous. So naturally, when I saw this I had to pick it up. I don't really care about staying power, or whether or not it will chip. It is Wet N Wild. I'm pretty much guessing that it won't hold up, but it is adorable and I'm in love with it. I layered it over Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Petrol.
I've been looking at this stuff for weeks. I finally caved and bought a bottle of Polar Purple at Walmart for about $9. I did my best friend's nails first, just to get the hang of it. I did my nails right after. I have to say, WE FREAKING LOVE THIS STUFF! I did a base coat with SH Maximum Nail Growth. (I have a weak spot for that stuff. It does amazing things to my nails.) I followed the directions for the Magnetic nail polish to the T. Well, aside from doubling the amount of time I held the magnet to my nail. We had amazing results. Some nails look better than others but I think I perfected it. I topped it off with a coat of SH Insta Dry Clearly Quick. (I like Sally Hansen. Shoot me.) My nails look awesome. I'm going to be getting a bottle of every color. I'm really excited about the green color. I'm not expecting this to last as long as my China Glaze polishes, but you get what you pay for! It is Sally Hansen. Walmart and CVS isn't exactly known for high quality nail polish. Slow down. Follow the directions. Don't rush. and as always, practice makes perfect. :D
Conditioner -Dove - Nourishing Oil Care Conditioner

I'm constantly trying new shampoos and conditions. Always. I have fine, yet super curly hair. and lots of it. I'm also a recovering dye addict. Over a year since my last dye job! I'm working on getting my hair back to its natural state. My hair is still slightly damaged. and even before I started dying my hair I always had horrible frizz and my hair stayed pretty dry. I have used this once. The smell is amazing. Nuts and coconut. OMNOMNOM. I digress. It was instant love with the shampoo. I was worried about the conditioner though. The consistency was a bit thicker than I'm used to and I really had to work it throughout my hair. I left it on my hair while I did all of my other showery stuff. It rinsed away quickly, but when I got out of the shower my hair felt stiff. Somewhat brittle even. Whenever I buy a new shampoo and conditioner, I never put anything else in it afterwards. I let it dry naturally. I actually fell asleep with my hair wet. I woke up thinking my hair was going to be a horrendous mess. Much to my surprise, my hair was in perfect ringlets. It was so soft. I never brush my hair while it is wet, so I was expecting a rats nest to brush through. Not the case! My hair was so soft. Virtually no tangles. It isn't frizzy. It is so shiny. It looks SO healthy. I'm in complete love with this stuff. I think the other half is diggin' it too. ^_^
I love this stuff. This is the only liner I use. I have never had an issue with the packaging like others have mentioned. There might be better, but I don't want to waste money trying to find out. Me and Unstoppable have a good thing together. Hasn't failed me yet! and I live in Florida. The humidity can be a real bitch sometimes, but not with my Unstoppable.
Generally, I like Maybelline products. (Except for the whole Falsies line. GARBAGE! CLUMPY GARBAGE!) I normally have pretty good results with any of their products. I freaking LOVE this stuff. Cheap. Easy to apply. No gimpy wand. No awkward shapes. If you take your time and don't cake on a bunch of layers, you won't have any clumps. I haven't had ANY clumps. No flaking. No smudges. Washes off easily in the shower. I have sensitive eyes so a lot of mascaras burn my eyes. I normally don't have that problem with Maybelline products. I pair with with Maybelline Unstoppable eyeliner. Good stuff! I'll be sticking to this! I hope it stays around as long as the original Great Lash. ^_^
Powder -Cover Girl - CoverGirl Ultimate Finish Cream to Powder Makeup

I don't see why this gets such a bad reputation. I rarely wear makeup any more, but I figured I pick up some new stuff just in case my girl started to show. I like the fact that I can be lazy about it. I never understand how women can take SO LONG to do their makeup. Just to end up looking like a drag queen. (I love it on queens. ^_^) This covered pretty well. I had a few small breakouts already, it covered them no problem. I did use a moisturizer before using this, but that's because I use ProActiv and while ProActiv clears up my breakouts, it dries me out horribly. I digress. I used a light layer. It felt clean. Covered my lighter freckles complete. I used this with a little bit of eyeliner and mascara and my sister said she was in love with my face. I'll probably buy it again just because of how quickly it applies and all the compliments I've received on my complexion It is a cheap drugstore makeup. You get what you pay for.
I don't understand other complaints about the packaging. Mine was sealed in a package. I have the dark brown. I bought it after I got my brows waxed and the lady screwed them up pretty bad.It isn't the best I've ever used, but it was 3 bucks at Walmart. I'd probably buy it again.
I am in LOVE with this stuff. I had a huge callous type thing on my ankle. Thick, dry skin. It was because I sit on my ankles a lot, but I digress. I have used this stuff for 2 days and my feet are transformed. They're soft and smooth. One foot is back to normal already. The other foot is almost there. I plan on using this tube every night before bed. After that I'll probably use it every other night. It is a bit greasy, but if you wear socks over it like the directions say, by morning it won't be greasy. I'm really in love with this stuff. I just wish the cap was a flip top. and it could stand to be a little cheaper. Update: 3/6/2013 It has been over a year since I bought this. Still on the same tube (Though, it is just about empty. Might have one more application left.). and I still LOVE this stuff. I recommend it to everyone. I <3 my coconut foot creme.
