Very disappointing. It did absolutely nothing to fade my scars (laser hair removal burns...basically hyperpigmented skin once they healed) even though they were treated as soon as skinned over. I used it diligently for 6 months and the treated scars look exactly the same as untreated ones. The ingredients look like this is little more than liquid petroleum jelly. Vaseline is way less expensive and every bit as moisture retaining. Fail.

Spectacular eye cream! Does not soak in quickly so in the morning you wake up and can still feel a little moist under they eyes, not dry and crepey like quick-soaking-in eye creams leave you. Keeps eye skin very supple and hydrated and makes you look fresh and well-rested--even if you are not. Even though it is insanely expensive, you need very little of it to do the job, so a tube lasted me 8 months. I am on my second tube, and toggle between this and Mary Kay Firming Eye Cream depending on the weather and my stress level. C de P is more emollient for when my eyes need lots of TLC!
Liquid -Rimmel - Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation

This is possibly the most amazing value for money of any foundation out there. It has a lovely texture, good coverage without looking cakey or chalky, a natural moist (but not oily, greasy, or slippery) finish, and a generous quantity all for under $10. It really lasts.
Totally agree with the reviewer below...she said it perfectly! I like to carry tons of makeup around with me and this is the only compact that will handle it all plus tools. I even put magnetic tape on the bottom section of mine to hold extra eyeshadows!
My HG concealer; I buy it in multiples so that I NEVER run out. it is worth the high price, no question. I have melasma, and this is the only concealer that keeps my secret for me! :) it blends to look just like skin, and covers anything. I have even swam with it on and it stays, even though it does not claim to be waterproof. I apply it with a sponge and dust it with translucent powder, and that really makes it stay.
Primer/ Corrector -BeneFit Cosmetics - Dr Feelgood

Cute tin packaging, but this has got to be one of the worst products I've ever bought...total waste of money. It does not mattify skin, removes your foundation when gently patted over as per the instructions, and makes lines seem more noticeable, as it makes your makeup fall into creases. Because of it's weird slip-y texture, I also tried it under my eyes before foundation in case it would work like a foundation primer. It didn't . The first time I smiled it showed up every crease, line, and fold around my eyes. I have no idea why they even bother to produce it. Dr. Feelgood makes me feel bad!
Nude Beach is the best "natural with a twist" polish I've ever used! And it makes for a fantastic French pedicure too. Your nails just look so healthy and glowy without being obvious. Very chic.
Mary Kay eyeshadows are the absolute best in the world IMHO! I have used them since 1993, and even though I keep on buying other department store brands over the years (for their pretty packaging and to try something different), I always go back to MK. The shadows are fine-milled so beautifully,are silky, and provide just the right amount of color deposit. I just wish they had a larger color selection. I love to put on my eyeshadow with my fingers instead of a brush, and MK shadows never cake or develop hard spots in them...most powder shadows will if you constantly finger-apply them.
