I bought this mascara on an impulse after I had gotten a makeover at the Clinique stand at my local mall. It was very expensive compared to the Maybelline/Covergirl mascaras I usually buy (Price was $15) But I figured "What the heck?! It's time to try something new!!" The first thing I noticed about this mascara was the VERY oddly shaped wand. It is COMPLETELY curved with tiny bristles. After a lot of hard work, I finally got the desired result. My lashes looked amazingly long, and it almost paid offf for the horrible wand shape! But due to the price and the good drugstore mascaras I've found since then, I won't be repurchasing.
Concealers -Physicians Formula - Mineral Wear Concealer in Light

This concealer is my go-to concealr every day. It perfectly fits my skin tone, and the packaging is very durable and clean-cut. The price was a bit high where I live- about $9 a stick, but it has lasted me about 4 or 5 months now. My only real complaint is that, even with lotion, the concealer still seems to tear at my fragile undereye skin. But who knows, maybe that could be my own fault for not applying it right???
These were the first "Makeup Removing Wipes" that I'd ever bought. I used up one package before I discovered the Aveeno makeup wipes, which work SOOOO much better, and remove waterproof makeup (Unlike YTC wipes) I'll just list the pros and cons of this product: PROS: Good Smell Cleansing Cute Packaging CONS: Don't remove eye makeup Burning if you don't rinse Fairly Expensive ($9 at my Target!) Overall, the cons outweigh the pros in this situation. Will be sticking with my Aveeno wipes.
I got this in 2012 for Christmas. I have long, dry, thin hair. I was SO excited to get this product, so when it finally came to me, I tried it out right away. My reaction? Meh.. It works pretty well. It's not STUNNING or anything, but it works. It would take me way too long to do my hair like this every day, so I rarely use it. I loved the packaging and the color of the tool. I guess I would repurchase.
I got this in Christmas of 2012, per my request for a nude nail polish. I have very fair skin, and this polish goes on a shimmery tan to me. I love how it matches with most every outfit, and isn't too overstated. The application is a bit streaky, it took me a good two coats to get good coverage. Besides that, the packaging is unique, and I will most likely repurchase this, alothough it was a bit expensive. ($15)

I have very fair skin, and I got this as a Christmas gift because I wanted to try out an Essie polish. I actually REALLY like this color! To get an opaque finish, I only had to use one coat! With a top coat, it goes 7 days without chipping, and it is just the most GORGEOUS ice blue! If you can't already tell by all the exclamation points, I'll likely be repurchasing this ;)
Treatments -Garnier - Sleek and Shine Moroccan Sleek Oil Treatment

My hair is long, thin, and dry. At a particularily rough time in my hair's life, I decided to pick this up and try it out. I have to say, it worked pretty well! It smells lovely, and it really does seem to deep-condition my hair! After two weeks or so, I could feel the renewed strength and thickness in my hair! My only complaint: Sometimes, it leaves my hair just a bit oilier than I prefer, but then again, that could be my own fault for using too much or something. Will repurchase.
My new favorite scent from BBW! I fell in love with this scent when I tried it out at my local mall and the advertising scheme appealed to me even more because I am a lover of luxury :) It smells WONDERFUL!
I LOVE LOVE LOOOOVEEE this perfume! It was the top item on my Christmas list this year, so when I opened it, I was extremely excited to try it out. I did, and it was love at first spray! This perfume is sweet, but not TOO sweet, and it has floral and citrusy notes. The packaging and the entire IDEA of this perfume is ADORABLE :) My new fav perfume. Will definitely repurchase
I bought this at my local Wallgreen's because I needed a new Blistex for my purse, and I wanted to try one besides the medicated lipbalm. This balm seems to have a REALLY light smell, but I can't place exactly what it is. It feels very smooth on my lips and keeps them conditioned for a long time without reapplication. I like the color of the packaging and I will most likely repurchase this lipbalm. :)
Lip Treatments -Blistex - Raspberry Lemonade Blast with SPF 15

AHHHHH! THE SMELL! IT"S ABSOLUTE HEAVEN! ;DDD This lipbalm is so affordable and it moisturizes so well! The smell is undescribably great! Will repurchase :)
I got this on Amazon.com as an add-on item($5) because everyone on YouTube was absolutely RAVING about it. I can see why! The texture of this cremeshadow is EXCELLENT and the Bronzey color actually looks great on my fair skin! I love the shimmery/pearly finish and the packaging is pretty high-quality. I would DEFINITETLY repurchase, and I'm thinking of buying the "Tough as Taupe" color as well. :)
I got this along with another Colorshow polish called "Green With Envy" (Which I LOOOVEDDDDD!!!) For VERYYY cheap! I was very excited to try this out, but disappointed in the end. This polish is so watery, it WILL NOT settle onto my nail no matter how hard I try! Very sad because it looked like a really nice color :( Won't repurchase.
Tinted Moisturizer -Clinique - Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer SPF15
MakeupManiac5699 2/20/2013 7:39:00 PM
I purchased this at a clinique counter in my local mall for $25. I am Shade 2. This is very moisturizing and it givesn a nice, sheer coverage. My only complaint is that it was a bit too yellow-toned for my skin. The packaging is also a bit aggravating, considering this is a messy product and it ruins the cap a little after long-term use. The only real reason I will not purchase this is because of the price. In the economy we are in, is it really right to spend that much on a tinted moisturizer?
I got this as a gift from a friend in the shade "Super Strawberry". It was a full-sized product ridiculously priced at $16 plus tax at where I live. The shade was WAYYY to dark for my fair skin, but besides that, there are other pros and cons:3 PROS: SPECTACULAR color payoff Nice, portable packaging Cute Crayon-like design CONS: DRYING!!!! No scent ;( I actually like scent in a lipstick! DARK! (This is more personal preference) The price!! Unfortunately, the cons outweigh the pros for me. I will not be repurchasing this product.
