I have to jump on the wagon with this one. I bought the brush on Ebay for $12.99 and received it just the other day. It works great!! The stiffness of the brush allows for alot of flexibility in the size of line that can be created. I have other angled brushes that are quite flimsy compared to this one. I am very pleased so far and would recommend this brush to others.
Loose Powders -Estee Lauder - Lucidity Translucent Loose Powder

I have always been pleased with the Estee Lauder Translucent Loose Powder. It provides even, translucent coverage that does not appear chalky. It is not a fine as others that I have tried, but I would repurchase and use it again.
The Uncircle didn't do anything for my undereye circles. I found the moisturizer to be OK, didn't feel really greasy on me as it has on others. Comes in a convenient pump bottle. I probably would not repurchase as the product is expensive and did not produce the desired result.
The Erase Eye Gel has done nothing to help reduce my dark circles. Comes in a convenient small pump bottle. I have noticed as I am trying to use it up, that it has developed a strange odor that I find hard to tolerate. I don't think that it keeps well. Would not repurchase again as I did not find that it works and the product is very expensive.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion

All that I can say is UCKY, UCKY, UCKY!! I tried a sample of this and would never consider actually buying it and putting it on my face.
This product comes in a cute roll-on type bottle which makes it very easy to apply. Very cooling when applied to the eye area. I haven't found it to help at all with my dark undereye circles though. I would not repurchase as I did not notice any real affect to my eye area and because of the high price of the product.
This has been my staple conditioner for several years. I have tried others, but always go back to the Conditioning Balm. Works great on my naturally curly, naturally dry hair. The balm does not weigh my hair down at all. I also have started several friends on this product who all love it as well. I would highly recommend this conditioner.
I purchased a bottle of Clean Perfume recently and I must say that I really do love the scent. It does not smell like Lemon Pledge to me, more of a light, citrusy, floral scent. Does smell very clean in my opinion. I am disappointed, however, in the staying power of the perfume. I have to spray several times to get the level of scent that I wish to have. At $76 for 2 oz., I don't expect that the bottle (very plain, inexpensive looking packaging) will last long. Because of the lack of staying power and the high price of the perfume, I probably would not repurchase even though I really do like the scent. I tried the Sweet Layer and found that it was to sweet smelling for me. That one also does not last long.
After reading the reviews for this fragrance, I decided to give it a try. I ordered it off of the internet and received it the other day. I am sorry to say that I do not like this scent at all. To me, it smells just like insect repellent. Will definitely be sending this one back............
Yankee candles are the best!! All others that I have tried just don't stand up to Yankee in their ability the fill a room with wonderful scent. I only wish that Yankee had not discontinued the Eucalyptus fragrance as it was my all time favorite.
I love this fragrance!! It smells like clean laundry (or fabric softner). One votive will scent a whole room and I have received comments on how nice the room smells when I use them. I like to use this fragrance in the bedroom and have recently begun using the car jars in my car as well.
