Makeup Brushes -Too Faced - Retractable Kabuki Brush

This is such a soft brush, not to mention super cute. It applies my mineral foundation great!
I love paintpots! If you use them with a primer underneath like UDPP or TFSI, they don't move all day. I prefer the matte ones like Painterly or Girl Friendly since they do a good job of covering up the veins on my eyelid, and they stay in place. I've used some of the shimmery ones, and they crease within a couple of hours. I'll still use them if I'm not worried about creasing that day. I'll definitely repurchase when I run out, but it will be a long while since these last forever.
Got a sample, and received many compliments on it. Bought the rollerball one for summer. I agree with what the previous poster said. It smells great, the but the scent doesn't last. "clean crispness of this got my attention ....This has a watery greenish, green foliage, fruity smell at the opening, but once that wears off, it mellows into a musky almost woodsy scent that I really like. Only complaints are that I need to drench myself in it to be able to really smell it, and it doesn't last..."
Mascara -Christian Dior - Diorshow Extase Flash Plumping Mascara

Got a sample from Sephora. I've never used any Diorshow mascaras before. Holy Moly! One coat! Long, full, and not clumpy! I am amazed. It's amazing what a good brush can do! I don't know that I would say "run out and get some" considering it's $28, but it does what it says.
This product is great for getting rid of color inconsistencies on the lid, but it is definitely not an eye primer. It's thick enough to really create a blank canvas. You would need to use UDPP or TFSI first if you wanted to prime the area for eyeshadow. But if you're trying to cover up veins and whatnot on your lid, I think MAC paintpots (in matte colors, not shimmery which crease) are better for this purpose.
It's good and bad. The lightest color is similar to yogurt, but slightly less chalky. The middle color isn't very pigmented, and takes a lot to show up. The dark color is very similar to Nanda Devi, just with a little more warm/red tones. But once blended into everything, you couldn't really tell the difference. Overall, it's alright, good for an everyday look. If I don't want to pull out a bunch of colors and make decisions, then this is nice to have those colors to stick with. But I honestly don't use it much because I have other colors that are so similar. I guess I'm kinda disappointed that the middle color wasn't more pigmented, and the last color wasn't more reddish/purple.
This is a wonderful brush. It is great for an all over color and gives even application. I use it mainly for brow bone hightlight. The only down side is the price ...regardless, I love it!
Well, Sephora wouldn't publish my review, so I'll put it here. This smells like GIRLS' ARMPITS! Kinda sweet, kinda musky, kinda powdery. I didn't smell any spice or very much vanilla. I was really disappointed because after hearing such good things about it, I was prepared to really like it. So, if you like the way your armpits smell after a day, then go for it!
I got this brush from a discount reseller. For the price, it was a good deal at $10. It's reasonably soft, fairly large without being too dense, and doesn't smell. The problem is that it sheds like crazy. I'm picking off 10-20 hairs from my face after using this, and I've already washed it 2x. I've been more impressed with the kabuki from BFTE, which is similar to the Too-Faced one, minus being retractable.
I was pleasantly surprised with this gloss. It's a nice, somewhat neutral color with plenty of shine. I like to use it to dull down some brighter lipstick colors if I feel they stand out too much. I haven't tried any of the creamsheens, but I would estimate they are close given that the reviewer below mentioned it. They are opaque, and definitely not sheer. I really like the smell of it, too, kinda fruity. And I feel like they last for a decent amount of time, too. Not a fan of the doe-foot applicator; however, the larger foot makes application easier.
I really like how this gives a natural look to my lashes. Application was flawless, and it didn't flake or smudge. Plus, it didn't make my lashes feel hard, and that's one of my biggest pet peeves. I'm sad that it's so expensive, and since I have cheaper alternatives, I'll just stick to those.
This polish is alright. I guess it's cheaper than OPI, but I'm assuming the quality of OPI is better, and therefore worth the money. Like the other reviewer said, you need 3-4 coats. It's pretty uneven, but seemed to dry quickly when applied a top coat of Seche Vite. I really like the color. It went on a little darker and browner than the bottle. While I like the look of the square bottle, I didn't find the top very useful when opening and grabbing the lid to paint. Overall, I'm happy I got it, but if I run out, I'll just spend the money on OPI.
A really good, everyday mascara. It makes my lashes look really natural with just one coat. I feel fine wearing just this and some powder. Doesn't seem to clump or flake, but I haven't done an all day test yet. And I haven't done multiple coats to see how big it can make my lashes.

I have to agree with the previous reviewer: Nothing too outlandishly great about the product, but definitely NO complaints either :) I think I prefer glosses, but if I wanted something slightly more opaque, I would grab this.
Shampoo -Head and Shoulders - Smooth and Silky shampoo

This definitely didn't work for me. It worsened my condition and made my hair really oily. Like one reviewer said, if you WANT dandruff, try out this shampoo. What I want to know is, why are all these people who don't have dandruff using this shampoo, and swimming in lakes? Was there some marketing scheme I missed? I have the other H&S in citrus breeze, which is also a 2-in-1, and that keeps the seborrheic dermatitis at bay. It works pretty well for what it is, but if you're trying to treat seborrheic dermatitis, you really should do some research online. You need to switch out the active ingredient in your "dandruff" shampoos for them to have any effect. I've had to move onto Selsun Blue.
