I'd like to personally thank *Kristabelle* for her review of the Medium Ash Blonde shade. I had my hair lightened to rid my roots of their brassy color and I ended up with the most buttery shade of blonde - unfortunately it looked horrible with my skin tone (major yellow undertones) After reading Kristabelle's review on this shade I ran out to CVS and purchased it for $7.99 - it did not disappoint! My hair is now a cooler toned version of what it was and I love it! My hair feels soft and silky and the conditioner was almost as thick as a pomade- amazing!!! I'll definitely be purchasing this again - I'm not sure if this brand will lighten by regrowth but I'm certainly willing to give it a try!
Love Love Love this! makes my blonde lashes full thick and long - only wish is that it were waterproof

I love this make up remover because you get the most for the money in comparison to the other brands I saw at CVS. It doesn't sting my sensitive eyes and takes off all my MU - its my go-to when I run out of Bliss Lid&Lash

This is such a great eyeliner - not to mention its dirt cheap! i have oily lids and usually even my eyeshadow ended up under my eyes (before i discovered UDPP of course). This stayed on all day and even through a bonfire that had me constantly rubbing at my eyes!

I tried a sample of this and liked how thick it was for a nighttime moisturizer. But this did nothing special for my skin. It wasn't too drying or too oily but i didn't notice any significant improvements that would sway me to pay for a full size tub.

I love that this is almost gel like so I never waste any product - it gets off all of my eye makeup and never stings when it gets in my eyes - the only draw back is the price but since i waste so little product it lasts forever!

Got this as a sample - I really didn't like how thin the product was and it did nothing special after putting on my foundation - def think there are better primers out there - i'm still searching for my HG
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

I really like how this primer holds my shadow in place all day and even after sleeping with it on into the next day. With that said I dont care for the packaging and the consistency is slightly thinner than Too Faced Shadow Insurance. I have really oily lids so I liked how UDPP was slightly drying. But for the packaging and slightly thicker consistency I'm going to be using TF Shadow Insurance instead.
These are horrible - looks like I put plastic with air bubbles on my nails. When you apply these you are supposed to file off the excess - this is a sloppy process and the shield doesn't lay flush with the end of you nails. There is NO way these would last 14 days! Entertaining myself now by peeling them off Dont waste your money on these.
Picked this up at CVS after a not so nice experiment with C.Booth derm 24 cleanser which made me break out horribly. Used this as a cleanser and then spot treated with it overnight --- didn't overdry and didn't rub off on my pillow! I've been using this for about a week and have noticed definate improvement in my skin - and you cant beat the price!
Tried the sampler set and this is the reason I try out the travel size version first. The cleanser made me break out soooo bad!!! I had a lot of success with the Bliss line but wanted something cheaper - this was not it. I did like the vitamin c scrub that came in the set as well as the body lotion - the toner was nothing special and I'm pretty sure it wasn't the reason I broke out I gave it 2 lippies instead of 1 since my skin might just be more likely to breakout than others.
Bronzers -Prescriptives - Sunsheen Bronzing Trio - Light

I purchased this bronzer trio in a cute value set - the bronzer is good for my yellow undertones and not too glittery/sparkly but its nothing special especially for the price. I really like the lightest shade for highlighting but still not enough to repurchase.
I purchased the non-waterproof version and I'm fairly happy with it. The brush is the same as the one for 2000 calorie and the results are about the same. I like that it didn't make my lashes feel dry and brittle. I liked this and will be purchasing the waterproof but I wasn't blown away.
I got this along with the regular Hope in a Jar and I'm just not impressed. The texture is funky - its almost like the product separates. The Hope in a Jar with out spf has a MUCH creamier and more even texture. I wasn't unhappy with the scent or how it felt on my skin but I def wont repurchase.
love this for an everyday shadow or base - neutral but still shimmery and pretty - on my second one and will be repurchasing soon
