Cleansers -Olay - complete ageless rejuvenating lathering cleanser

I ran out of the cleanser I was using (also Olay) and couldn't find it at Walgreens. The reason I decided to stick with the brand was because that cleanser did an excellent job of completely removing my makeup from my face. I grabbed this up because it was on sale and I have to say I really like it. I guess I do not have sensitive skin but then again I don't rub very hard either. My skin is radiant, smooth and clean when I finish. I follow up with Mary Kay oil free hydrating gel. I have not noticed any lathering whatsoever but I didn't with my previous Olay cleanser either. That's why I took off one lippie. The name of the product is not entirely accurate. I personally do not need the bubbly effect to feel like my face has been cleansed properly but for someone who does they may be thoroughly disappointed. Even so, I give this cleanser two thumbs up!
I really like this lipstick. As of this moment in time it is my favorite pink. I have very pigmented lips and even though this is a luster it shows up quite nicely. I am NW45/MUFE Mat Velvet 70 and just one swipe gets the job done. Sometimes I will pair it with a liner, but if I go light with it, it's not necessary. I love the matching gloss just as much! Would I buy again? Why, yes, I already have :)

I cannot believe how horribly awful this primer was for me. I may as well have put grease on my eyes. My eyeshadow didn't last even a couple hours without creasing horribly. I wish I had kept my receipt so I could take it back. The original UDPP works for me just fine. Lesson learned - if it ain't broke don't try to fix it!
Lip Gloss -MAC - Strange Potion (Venomous Villains)

I really like Strange Potion. Used it for the first time this weekend on a whim, over call my bluff l/s. It was beautiful. On top of CMB, it was just a peachy neutral tone. I'd buy another if I could find one. nw45 for reference
I have to give two big fat thumbs down on this pigment! Glittery, chunky mess that fell off my lids instantly! No thanks. Won't go there again. Applied wet, like I do with all my pigments. This is a no-go for me. It was a huge disappointment, as this has never happened with any other piggies I've tried out.
LOVE this lipstick! NW45 for reference. This is the perfect nude pink for my skin tone and the amplified formula rocks. This is my first MAC lippie along with Girl About Town, which I'm too chicken to wear. Got it from B2M so I can't complain about the price, lol. BUT I will buy again once I run out!
OMg...I LOVE this blush! I don't own a ton of blushes because I just got into wearing them, but this is absolutely gorgeous! I'm NW45 for reference. It provides a beautiful red flushed look with gold pearl. A note of caution - tap your blush brush once VERY lightly or you may end up looking like you are a circus employee. I would buy this product again, but don't really think I will have to given the high pigmentation of it and the fact that one light tap is needed for each cheek!
Eye Shadow -MAC - Haunting (Alexander McQueen - Fall 2007)

This color is extremely pretty in the pot, but was such a HUGE disappointment. Very poorly pigmented, hard to get any color to show. I would have loved this if only it would show up! Without a paint pot, this color is useless. In fact, the otherworldly paint pot by itself is really all you need. So disappointed!!!
