I'm going to go against the grain with this one---I don't like this at all. I had high hopes for this one. I feel like the consistancy is too watery and it doesn't help my shadows be more vibrant at all. The worst part IMO is that it doesn't help keep my shadows on...which is the prime reason to use this product. Also, just like UDPP you can't get out all the product unless you cut it open. Boo!
I haven't used this too much...but I feel like I can share my thoughts so far...this was more pigmented than I thought, which was nice. I also enjoy the cooling sensation! I don't really get puffy under my eyes unless I have had NO sleep. I still had to use concealer to cover my dark circles though. I'm about halfway through my day, look in the mirror, and thar be my circles! Not too long lasting. Guess I'm still on my search for a great concearler. I've tried many...guess I'll have to try many more!
I had heard on Twitter that these baked blushes were awesome. I could never find them until recently. I hadn't read anything specific about this color, I just picked it out because I thought it was pretty. =) I was nervous about all the glitter as well, but I can honestly say, once you put it on they almost all go away. I'm please with the color, texture, and look of this blush! I do think the packaging is a little tacky---fake gold. But that is just a personal preference for me. I'd rather it be pink or something pretty! Also, for drugstore, $7+ is a lot for a blush IMO. But I do really like this and will most likely pick up another one.
I didn't really enjoy this scent very much. It's hard to talk about scents, but if you like something sweet or floral....just something girly...this isn't your scent. I recommend that you ask your AVON rep to get you a sample before you purchase. Packaging is cute though!
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Trio - Silent Treatment

This is my favorite W&W trio. I find that I do have to build the shadows to get a nice color that shows up, but I love the texture. They blend really well and you can't beat the price of $2.99! I do think that the packaging needs improvement, but I suppose that would drive the price up.

When I first tried this, I didn't love it. I thought it was okay, but I wasn't using it much. I let it sit in my drawer for the longest time, pulling it out occasionally. I was going through my stash again about a month ago and decided to make myself try it again. Afterall, I think I spend about $10 on it! I started using it again and realized I do love! I don't wear dramatic looks, but I found that using UUPP that it amped up the colors, didn't crease, and lasts me all day long. I've put a pretty big dent in this palette in the last month! It's a great size to put in your purse for traveling also! When I use this up, I will repurchase!
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Lemon Drop SPF 15

I love these EOS lip balms. I love the scent of this one also! It's my favorite! I wanted to buy another one the other day, since I just ran out a few weeks ago, but the only they had was the Melon one. I like that one too, but love the lemon scented one best! I think besides it feeling and smelling good, people like it because of the packaging! I know I do!
I love how BLACK this is! It's the blackest mascara I've ever used! The only things I'm not crazy about it the size of the wand (it's huge!) and also that it does flake a bit toward the end of the day. Carry some concealer with you and you'll be fine! Great mascara!
I love this lipstick! The color is very flattering on my skin tone and it lasts a long time! It's very creamy--hence the name! It's not drying and still feels light on my lips! Great lippie! **That's my picture above!!**
Blush -Vapour Organic Beauty - Aura Multi-Use Blush

I have this and it's great for my dry skin! It's not the creamy-est I've ever used, but blends really nicely and lasts a long time. I still like to use powder blush on top of this to really make the blush last. I love the packaging--you can throw it in your purse and go & not worry about it breaking! I wouldn't leave it in my purse during summer though--it might melt!!! Good pigmentation and easy to use!
I was super excited to get my hands on this when I walked into Sephora a few weeks ago! I was going in for the pro size eye priming potion and saw a few of these sitting on the shelf. I snatched it up and ran to the counter to pay! I've used it a lot and love it! I have tons (I mean tons) of palettes/singles with colors similar to what is in the NAKED palette. The only ones that even compare to the pigmentation and smoothness of the UD shadows come from my Sedona Lace 88 Metal & 88 Warm palettes. I'd say that metallic & shimmery ones are every bit as good. The matte ones in the UD palette are much better than any other mattes I have. I actually swatched some of them for a post on my blog, if anyone wants to see what I mean. Google NV Beauty. =) I hope this helps!
I have serious under eye circles and this is the best product I have used to conceal them! A little of this product does go a long way. I do have to be careful that it doesn't settle into my fine lines though--which is the only thing I don't like about this. It wears for a very long time and I always use Powderflauge to set it. I love this! Will buy again and again, unless something better comes about.
LOVE the shimmer (but over the top shimmer) this gives the tops of my cheek bones! Def one of my favs from BeneFit! =)

I have dry skin, so this was NO good for me. It didn't even out my skin tone one bit and dry patches were very obvious. Perhaps this is good for someone with normal or oily skin?
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Twilight Woods Body Lotion
Designgirl96 5/18/2010 4:42:00 PM
I got the shower gel, body cream, and body spray for Christmas. I LOVE all the them! I love to wear it in the fall/winter...it's just so warm smelling--if that makes sense. I find it's very long lasting! If I put it on before bed, the next night, I can still smell it when I go to sleep! LOVE it. The body cream is super moisturizing!!!!
