This mascara is the BEST! I have wimpy little lashes and I've tried every mascara out there plus went thru the hassle of applying individual or strip lashes for those big night outs... not anymore though! Hypnose is great for pumping up my nonexistant lashes and when I'm out on the weekend I just add a second coat and I'm set. No clumping no little flecks and really easy to remove with soap and water.
Foundations -Revlon - ColorStay Mineral Mousse Makeup

I only just received this foundation, and I love it already. It provides even coverage without caking or being greasy. I love that it stays matte, but still has SPF 20. I'm disappointed only in that I've heard this foundation will be discontinued, which seems to be the trend for me. I find a make-up I'm willing to stick with and the manufacturer discontinues!! (Mary Kay, Clinique, now Revlon). The replacement is never as good as the original and I start my search again for a new brand to whom I can be loyal.
Dove makes great soap for the shower or even if you're merely washing your hands. Although I personally consider this product to be soap, officially it's a "beauty bar" substitute for soap in that it contains a good amount of moisturizing lotion. Soap doesn't always moisturize; and so Dove tries to set their product apart from soap when they advertise the moisturizing abilities of their product. Rest assured, however, that you will find this item where the rest of the soap is stocked in your grocery store. The bars of soap are rather large but they don't slip out of your hands too easily; the shape of the bar helps you hold onto it. The Dove "beauty bars" do seem to truly help moisturize my skin when I use them to take a shower or wash my hands. The scent is mild but if you are sensitive to any scent you may want to use a completely unscented type of Dove soap. Dove is a little more expensive than other soaps but many people like me swear it's worth it. My best friend uses Dove religiously and he says it helps his skin a great deal. One reviewer wrote elsewhere that Dove soap is not particularly useful for acne; but I cannot personally comment on this because I do not have acne or other types of skin breakouts. I did notice, however, that two other people commented on that review and they stated that Dove soap did help them with their acne. If any skin condition is a concern for you, talk with your doctor or pharmacist before using this product. Overall, I love these Dove "beauty bars" with their moisturizing lotion. They are a bit more costly; but they are worth it if you want to pamper your skin in the shower or at the bathroom vanity sink. Pick up a package today and give yourself a little extra pampering!!!
Eye Makeup Remover -Neutrogena - Oil Free eye makeup remover

I purchased this product one day when I couldn't find my usual eye makeup remover by Nivea. Nivea is still my favorite, but this one wasn't bad. It is an oil-based remover, but somehow manages to not leave an overly oily residue on your eyes. It is gentle, and does a thorough job without a whole lot of rubbing, but again - it does require more rubbing and tugging at my eyes than does the Nivea brand. I did find that it merely smears the makeup around unless I wet my face first - not a big deal, but something I don't have to do with the Nivea product, so it took me a while to figure it out. All in all Neutrogena has a decent product here, but it places a distant second to my all-time favorite, Nivea!
This product is amazing. I highly recommend it to any facial type. It goes on smooth and leaves skin looking absolutely flawless. The only thing that I do dislike about the product is nothing. Compared to other products, it is money well spent. Others leave me feeling like I caked it on. This is the only product I will pay this much more. Love it!
My favorite for the past couple of years. I don't have a problem with clumping. Might have to scrape off the excess product sometimes, especially with a new tube--but that's my experience with all mascaras. I think it thickens well, & I love this carbon black version--it's the blackest black.
