I really like this, it smells beautiful and is a pleasure to put on. I would recommend it for someone who has combination skin and is scared of breakouts but has dry rough spots. I am definitely prone to breakouts but this has never made me get a single one or clogged my pores. I get surface roughness on my cheeks so this works great for helping with that. Best oil free moisture mask I have ever used, and sodium hyaluronate moisturizes really well. The only thing I wish a little bit is that it dried to a less goopy texture so I felt more comfortable leaving it on longer.
Scrubs -Philosophy - Amazing Grace Perfumed Hot Salt Scrub

Amazing scent, and it makes my skin feel so soft i can't believe it, when i wash it off my skin feels like silk. I had trouble getting the hang of applying it since it is so dry and it is not like other things i have used, i kept dropping clumps, but after a while i got a hang of it. 23 oz jug of this stuff is a great value even though it takes quite to apply it evenly. My hg, i like gritty scrubs but this smells much better than gingerbread man ick.
Foundations -Trish McEvoy - Natural Tint Oil-Free Foundation

Hmm, this is the best color match i have ever found in a foundation, cool beige. i really like the coverage on this. The only bad thing about it is how matte it is. It can make the fine lines around my mouth look worse, but it is great for covering up redness or blemishes.
hmm, I really like this eye cream. I have noticed a significant improvement in the discoloration of my undereyes near the inside corner. I have olive skin and it can be purplish and dark. It evens out the skin tone in my eye area and has not caused me to get any bumps or breakouts which most under eye creams do. I really love this... Would recommend it for someone who isn't really looking for a firming cream just moisture, protection from oxidation, and decreasing puffiness and discoloration. Seems great for those things.
Treatments (Eye) -Origins - A Perfect World for Eyes

First off.. the formulation of this eye cream is CRAP. I own A perfect world serum and have never had a problem with it. I liked the eye cream at first but after a while the texture began to change. I have noticed it evened out my skin tone but not much else. I recieved a tube as part of a gift set and it turned to oil..(i keep my things in my bathroom) I suppose the medium heat of my shower caused it to melt from the smooth serum to an oily slop. I returned it because they said it was defective only to have the same thing happen to my new tube. I am going to return it for a different eye cream because a formulation should not do that imo. Overall, very disapointed. If anyone purchases this i recommend you keep it out of your bathroom which is quite an inconvenience for me.
Makeup Brushes -Sephora - Tickle Me Pink Brush Set
Nanashi 12/16/2003 2:51:00 AM
This is a nice brush set, good quality for the money. It is not quite a complete set but.. it is still very useful. The pink puffy thingy is nice but not the most practical and i have found is useless for anything but loose powder or glitter powder. My favorite thing in the set.. has to be the eyebrow/eyelash comb. The bristles are so soft, the comb teeth are just the perfect size to seperate each and every one of my eyelashes completely. I need to see if i can buy this thing alone i love it. Pink leather suede case is really cute and good for travel, tie around design is a bit time consuming for me.
I am a product junky, and this has to be the single thing that has survived the amount of stuff i try. Well i have used this eyeshadow for like 5 years now it has to be... maybe more? oh jeez :) and i am in love with it. Absolutely beautiful neutral shade with the cutest sparkles in it. It is my favorite everyday easy eyes quick fix. If you apply it slowly and dab it on you won't get glitters on your face, or if you use a primer. I actually enjoy them so .. :)
I bought this because i am always looking for good mascaras. I didn't return it so i like it a bit :) but it is not the best. Pros are it is softening, makes my eyelashes feel nice when i wear it, nice color. Cons are it CLUMPS, well i am a perfectionist, and whenever i put on this mascara I notice tiny little clumps of mascara goo on each eyelash it drives me insane. Otherwise if i can figure out a way to avoid this perhaps by using a different wand with it, i would like it much more.
Great packaging, great value, so cute, great wand, easy to apply, doesn't clump, creates very black thick long eyelashes, big tube, comes off easily with soap! whats not to like. My favorite mascara by far.
I lalalalove this, as a lip gloss. It is so yummy and smells delicious, i could just eat it right up. The best part of it is the color this stuff gives my lips, perfect! The only bad part.. i don't recommend this as a blush, made me break out and is too sticky for your face yuck. such cute packaging. <3 eyeko
Well, I would give this eyeliner a 4 but I decided to give it a 5 for cuteness factor :>. I love the highlighter side, especially on the inside corners of my eyes. The black liner is another story. I do like it, but i see nothing special about it and it is a bit dry and hard to apply. I am going to give it a few more shots, maybe try it wet and see what happens. I just think i like prefer much softer black pencils or even powder eyeliners. Allover i like it but not the best black pencil ever and you can't even see the cute silver glitter in it!
Skincare - Face -Aveda - Tourmaline charged Protecting Lotion
Nanashi 12/16/2003 2:12:00 AM
I like this moisturizer, it is less greasy than Have a Nice day from origins which I was using previously and still do sometimes. It absorbs nicely, has a pretty herbal scent, has caused me no breakouts, and has an spf. My only gripe about it is the horrid way the lotion clogs the cap after several uses and then dispenses a glob of dried up goo. I think it is a waste of product, wish the packaging were better.
Well, I like this cleanser very much. The texture is smooth and silky when lathered. Although i wouldn't mind if it was a bit more bubbly it suffices. The smell is fresh, I love herbal smells, and it is a definite mix of eucalyptus and clay. Lastly the finished result, clean, smooth, refreshed feeling skin. My skin is happy. It also has not irritated my skin at all. If you have oily to normal/oily skin I would recommend this if you are looking for something gentle and refreshing.
I am so disapointed :(. I found my perfect color match in this product, more perfect than any other I have found in illusion i think? Well i tried it on the side of my face at sephora and it went on smoothly and looked very nice. Once i got it home and was able to put it all over my face i can't keep this stuff from caking. As soon as it sees the pores on my cheek it starts to look nasty. Oh well, i have tried applying it many different ways even on just moisturized skin, i just think it doesn't agree with me. If this was creamier i would be happy.
I love this, it is the lightest feeling, non acnegenic, moisturizing cream for dry spots. This is a pearly clean smelling cream that leaves absolutely no grease. I use it whenever i get a dry spot and it penetrates deeply and soothes. I have also discovered it does wonders for my cuticles and hands! It feels great, smells great, and does everything it claims to and more.
