I love this cleanser! It is a gentle cream with exfoliant beads, but it has salicylic acid to prevent breakouts. It does a great job of removing my makeup, rinses clean, and leaves my skin feeling soft. It reminds me of much more pricey cleansers like Mary Kay Timewise. The price is fantastic. My new staple!
Treatments (Eye) -Dove - Fresh Radiance Anti-aging eye cream

I just bought this eye cream two days ago. It reatails for around $9.50-10 at Wal-Mart, but I had a coupon for $1 off. I am very pleased with this product! It is a nice, rich cream in a sterile tube. Leaves my eye area very soft. It even gives the appearance of smoother lines under my eyes! Love this!!! I hope to find another coupon for when I repurchase.
I just bought two shadows the other day, as a BOGO. I am very impressed and surprised I didn't try these sooner!!! I just tried Truffle today - after 6 hours of oily lids with out primer, it has held up wonderfully! The color is just beautiful - sheer and easy to blend. I wish there was more of a color selection, but I can definitely make do with what's available! Will definitely repurchase. So impressed!
Lip Treatments -Neutrogena - Moistureshine Tinted Lip Balm [DISCONTINUED]

The shade I bought this is was 07, I think "fresh"??? (I ripped the sticker off already). This is a great product. Not stick, great sheer color. Very natural and leaves my lips soft. Will definitely purchase more colors. The price is 5.84 at Wal-Mart. Yes, it's a bit pricey for a lip blam, but it sure beats the $12 I will no longer be paying for Aveda!
Treatments -L'Oreal - Dermo-Expertise ReFinish Micro-Dermabrasion

This is my HG exfoliating product. It is around $23 for the set, and you can often find $3 coupons in the Sunday paper for this. Lately, normal exfoliators like St. Ives haven't been getting the job done for me, so I decided to give this set a try and I am so happy I did!!! My skin is smooth as a baby's behind!!! I was skeptical about the moisturizer since I have combo skin, but it's great! I have only been using this since last week, but my skin is already looking better! Love this!
I L-O-V-E this eye cream!!!! It really does work to lighten my dark circles. The price is average with all other decent eye creams out on the market. I just wish it came in a tube instead of a jar with a narrow opening. Will definitely repurchase.
I love this eyeshadow. It is a pretty beige-champagne shimmer, but not glittery. It does on silky-smooth. It is in the "highlighter" category, but I love to wear this all over the lid with hazlenut in the crease. It would also look great alone. Quite possibly my favorite eyeshadow. The price, 6.50, is great for the size, quality, and lasting power. I usually keep all the MK products in their original packaging, I can't be bothered to spend extra money on a compacy, but recently my consultant gave me a large plastic tray that has 13 slots so ALL my MK blushes and shadows fit! Lucky me! But back to the shadow....LOVE IT!!!!
I do not see any difference in the blending of my shadows after using this, but it does make my shadow last longer. I used this for a wedding I was in recently and both mine and the bride's make up lasted perfectly through the night. I like that this really helps my MAC shadows which usually crease and fade, but not with this! I don't think I can be with out this product now!
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! I first tried ProActiv, which did clear me up to an extent - I still got the cystic acnce, and small bumps as well. This is my miracle product, my consultant is bummed that we didn't do before/after photos. The tube is a great size for the money. Using day and night on the entire area of my face below my eyes, it has lasted me three months. And it's a much better price than ProActiv as well as a better benzoyl peroxide % (5%) - yet it does not dry out my skin. It has greatly reduced blemishes overnight. I will never be with out this product again, I wish I discovered this sooner!
I am naturally drawn to pretty blue-ish purple/ultraviolet shadows. This shadow goes on much more sheer and lighter than you would think. It is very pretty. It gives just the right amount of color with out being gawdy. I don't think I would try it as a liner. It is a nice color for day, and you can make it for intense for the evening.
Cleansers -Mary Kay - Mary Kay Deep Cleanser Formula 3

I have combo-acne prone skin. I will say this cleanser is better than Proactive. I thought this would be like the Clearsil cleanser (good lather, rinses clean) but I am disappointed. This is an average cleanser. There is not a good lather, and I am left feeling like this is a cream cleanser which is sooo not good for my skin. I got this from hostess credit and I will not be repurchasing. I'll be going back to the Velocity gel cleanser which I am lost with out.
I think at $12 this is a little pricey compared to the powder shadows at $6.50, but I think they are great. My mom bought this shadow for me when they just came out a few years ago, and I am still on the same tube, the consistency has not changed AT ALL. This, along with the nice germ-free tube packaging is why I have not felt the need to replace yet. It goes on nicely and doesn't crease. I wear this all over, with the silver shade on my lids - looks great and I've gotten many compliments on it!
I really like this shadow. It is very easy to wear. You can wear either the pink or blue alone and they look good and not overpowering. I like that you can blend the two together to make purple, and you can control the intensity and tone of the purple - if you want it to be more pink or blue based. The first time I wore it to work I got many compliments - everytime since, my co-workers instantly call me out on wearing it. It makes my eyes look very nice. I don't think this is "teeny-bopper" at all. Great quality for the money. I found this looks nicer and lasts longer than the Stila shadow in "Key."
This is a very pretty gloss. It reminds me of Benefit's lipstick "it's karma" in a gloss formula. It's a coppery red. I usually wear glosses in any and every shade of pink, so it took a little while for me to get used to this shade. It's a nice color, especially for the summer. Nice change for someone who likes very neutral, subtle colors!
I love, love, love this product. I am fair skinned with dark blonde hair. I have eyebrows that are thin and light - they look almost non-existent. This is my miracle product. I have tried many other brow products before - gels, pencils, powders, all left my brows looking messy, dirty, and somewhat orange-y, never a nice natural color. The sable is the perfect color for me, it colors and grooms my brows at the same time, they consistently end up looking perfect, which is good for someone like me who is neurotic about their brows. Again, perfect product. I belive the price tag was $16 which is so well worth it for the only brow product that actually delivers.
