I liked the smell and the flavour assortment, as well as the SPF protection, but they caused me to have a nasty rash on my mouth. I made sure they were the cause by trying to use of separate occasions after the rash cleared up, and after three strikes, I knew these things were the culprit. I should have known sooner since they made my lips tingle (and not a good tingle) as soon as I'd put them on. A toxic will-not-repurchase from me!
Love it. I use Clean perfume and Clean Sweet Layer, but on days where I have to go lighter on the fragrance, I just use this on its own in my hair. I love getting compliments on how nice my hair smells and this works time after time. The spray nozzle is perfectly designed, and it actually lasts longer than I expected it to. It also makes hair shinier instead of drying it out, because it's alcohol free. My only gripe is that it is pricy, but for something I like this much I'll keep on shelling out the cash for it.
For a mascara made by a high-end brand, I find this incredibly mediocre. Its lengthening properties aren't very good, which is what I was looking for when I bought it. It isn't a bad product per se, but I certainly won't repurchase this given what they charge for it.
Lip Gloss -Clinique - Glosswear for lips in Air Kiss

The smell of this is AWFUL. Also, it gives no colour at all. I wouldn't have been so angry if it was just a cheap drugstore lip gloss, but I expect more from a higher end line.
Loose Powders -Revlon - Skinlights Face Illuminator [DISCONTINUED]

I have this in "Golden Light", and I don't like it. First of all, it's more of a sparkly/shimmery powder than anything else, which makes it unsuitable for day wear. Second, the powder is not very finely ground and so the application is prone to being streaky and uneven (even when using a good powder brush instead of the piece of crap brush that comes with). Lastly, the packaging is just plain retarded. I'm trying to use it up by using it as a body bronzer when going out at night. I can't wait to go back to my Nars bronzers after this mistake!
I bought this with the hopes of it brightening up my undereye area, but it does nothing for me. It's way too watery and I'm returning it tomorrow.
Mascara -Christian Dior - DiorShow Mascara Waterproof

This is my showstopper mascara! It makes my lashes look impossibly long and luscious. Lasts throughout the night, too. ;) It's definitely worth its high cost.
RIDICULOUSLY expensive product that is only average in its effects. It rubs off everywhere, and really doesn't do anything more special than a cheap bronzer mixed with a little moisturiser would. Don't fall for the hype around this unless you have money to burn.
Eye Makeup Remover -Chanel - Gentle BiPhase Eye Makeup Remover

Pretty good eye make-up remover. It didn't sting my eyes and got most of the waterproof stuff off. I wouldn't spend that much money to buy the product though (I got a free sample bottle). I'm convinced there's more effective for cheaper out there, so the search continues!
