I miss the original scent. Period.
Eyeliner -Physicians Formula - Eye booster eyeliner + serum

My only complaint is that I wish I hadn't waited so long to try this product. After watching a few reviews and recommendations on YouTube I finally ordered it from Ulta. OMG, I love everything about this product! The applicator brush is similar to a very fine paint brush; just the right amount comes out when applying. The lasting power is very good, even on my oily eyes, though I do use a primer. My absolute favorite thing about this eyeliner is how easy it is to apply out of all the liquid, gel and cream eyeliners I've tried. I have already purchased the other colors.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

I really want to like this product, but I just can't. There are several things that I don't care for. First, is the packaging. One would think the brush would be on the shorter side and the product on the longer side, but it's not. I frequently open it upside down. So far none of the product has dripped out though. I also find that the brush is too thin and long, which makes it too flexible. It just makes for a hard application. Secondly, I'm not crazy about the formula. I think it's too thin. Combined with the thin, wobbly brush makes for an extremely difficult application. Lastly, the formula upon application becomes, for a lack of better words, rubbery. It almost peels of my eyelid after a just a little while of wear. You'd be better off with a much cheaper drugstore liner like Line Stiletto.
Lipstick -Revlon - Color Stay Ultimate Suede Lipstick

I don't often return drugstore makeup, but this one I did. For a product that cost nearly $10 I was extremely disappointed. I purchased two a pink and a burgundy shade. I was super excited when I brought them home. I put on the darker shade and at first the texture and feeling was smooth and slightly silky. But as the product dried it became somewhat sticky and streaky. In order to even out the color I applied more and that became goopy. Not only did it feel terrible on my lips, but it looked terrible. I tried out the pink shade just to see if I was got a dud and I had the same issue. I promptly returned both the next day.
I've tried this mascara several times. In the beginning I hated the brush. It was too big and I wasn't fond of the rubber bristles. I got used to that, even began to like it, but the formula lacks. It's not very buildable and doesn't add much volume. As I've tried various other drugstore mascaras, many out preform this mascara. Even the newest CG Clump Crusher from this line is a far better formula. I don't hate it, but I wont repurchase.
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Line Stiletto liquid eyeliner

I do enjoy this product, but it's lasting power is just okay. The inner corner of my eye is usually gone within a few hours, with a primer. By the end of the day it's worn off quite a bit. I have to carry it with me for touch ups. However, out of all the liquid eyeliners I've tried I tend to like this one more than most. I would repurchase.
Liquid -Revlon - Age Defying All Day Lifting Foundation
MsSunshineGal27 2/5/2012 1:25:00 AM
Not entirely sure if this is the correct product, but I tried the Revlon Age Defying Foundation, which happened to be on clearance at Target. No wonder. WORST foundation ever! Streaky, color came out much lighter than it looked in bottle and even after I put some on my hand to apply. Less coverage than a tinted moisturizer. I returned it the very next day. Would not recommend to anyone for any reason EVER.
I have not tried a whole lot of eye primers, but so far I have liked this one fairly well. The color helps smooth out my skin tone and it holds the shadow very well for someone who has very oily lids. I would use this again, however I would like to try some other brands to compare.
Another change of heart. I used to use this religiously before I really knew much about makeup. Now that my knowledge of products has increased I realized I hated this product. The number one reason is that you have to pull on your eye to apply it. No eyeliner should require you to pull and press hard to get a good color payoff. Would not repurchase and would not recommend.
Eye Shadow -NYX - Jumbo Eye Shadow Pencil - French Fries

I love this color! Goes on smooth, blends well and works as a decent shadow base. Even with a good primer it creases fairly easily.
Primer/ Corrector -Rimmel - Fix and Perfect Foundation Primer

I initially liked this primer, but over time I found that it really was not that great. Would not repurchase or recommend.
I really love the idea of a solid shampoo. This has a nice scent and forms and excellent lather. It is easy to use and leaves my hair feeling just the right amount of clean.
I am torn with this product. I like the results, but getting there is a bit of a challenge. Typically I can only use this conditioner on the weekend because it takes so long for me to get a good amount in my hair. I've worked a pretty good system by smooshing small pieces into my palm and then rubbing my palms together to smooth out the pieces into a paste. But this takes at least 5 minutes to complete. On the plus side it does not weigh my hair down and all, smells very nice and has no harmful chemicals. Perhaps if the product was softer, I would rate this a 5.
I really wanted to love this product, because the smell is wonderful. However the gritty pieces are so large and rough I can barely form a lather when I wash my hands. I only received a sample of this so fortunately I did not pay for it. If there were less gritty pieces I would purchase, but until then I will only enjoy the smell when I visit LUSH.
I was recommended this product at LUSH because I am currently battling hormonal/pregnancy acne just on my forehead and temples. I was looking for something that would help smooth out the texture, control the oil and clear up the acne and this was it. It is quite messy, but I typically only use it in the shower. I don't mind the smell of charcoal and the grittiness is just what I was looking for. My face felt so smooth afterward and I also felt that my skin seemed brighter and less dull. I would not recommend this for sensitive or dry skin.
