Toners -Nivea - Alcohol-Free Moisturizing Toner [DISCONTINUED]

This toner makes my skin feel refreshed after washing it, not tight. I have some concerns because nothing comes off on my cotton ball, but since it feels refreshing and I don't have oily skin I will continue to use it. I definately like it better then the Clinique Toner I used for type II skin. I tried L'Oreal's Ideal Balance for combination skin and I will probably go back and forth between the two.
I love this eyeliner! I have used it for years. It goes on smoothly, never needs to be sharpened and does not smudge. It is somewhat difficult to get off but that is not a huge problem to me. This is definately holy grail for me.
Misc Beauty Tools -Maybelline - Maybelline eyelash curler

I really like this eyelash curler. I curl my lashes several times from the base to the tip. There may be better eyelash curlers out there but this is the best for my budget. I like that I can buy replacement pads for it. It always seemed like such a waste to keep buying eyelash curlers when the only thing I needed was the pads. I have used many different brands of eyelash curlers including Covergirl, Revlon, and Max Factor. I also used the really cheap kind you can get at Wal-Mart. I like this one the best because it is easy to use (not hard to clamp down), it gives my lashes a nice curl, it is not expensive (should I need to replace it) and I can buy refills.
Misc Beauty Tools -Sonia Kashuk - Metal Eyelash Comb

I love this eyelash comb! It goes through my lashes to get rid of my clumps which the plastic ones never did. I also like that the tines go back into the handle so that they are protected. If something ever happened to the one I have I would definately repurchase.
Cleansers -Ponds - Fresh Start Daily Exfoliating Cleanser [DISCONTINUED]

I bought this based on the reviews on MUA. I really like this product. It cleans my skin and has kept it clear. My tube came with an extra 30% and it was on sale at Target so it was very reasonable. I like that the package has a flip top and not a screw top. Love this stuff, will definately repurchase.
Eye Makeup Remover -Neutrogena - Oil Free eye makeup remover

I tried this based on the reviews here on MUA. I really like this makeup remover. It glides my eyemakeup off without tugging or pulling on my eyelids. I used to use Almay pads but they left my eyelids irritated. It actually works better than Clinique's eye makeup remover and is much cheaper. Sometimes I find a bit left under my eyes when I get out of the shower but I use a lot of mascara and eyeliner. Will definately repurchase.
This is great eyeliner! It goes on smoothly and does not smudge or run. It comes in a variety of colors and is cheap. I love this eyeliner, thank you MUA!
Mascara -L'Oreal - Lash Architect Mascara [DISCONTINUED]

I like this mascara a lot. I can build the coats without clumps. One lippie off because by the end of the (long) day some of the mascara flakes off and my lashes do not look as long. I have already used several tubes of this and will continue to repurchase.
I use the dark brown shade. I really like this eyebrow pencil. It goes on quickly, keeps my brows in place and looks natural. It is very reasonable in price too. Holy Grail for me.
