Eyeliner -Rimmel - Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in Taupe

Very sophisticated shade of taupe for a drugstore brand, it looks like a color you would find at Bobbi Brown, etc. It's a very flattering color. I haven't tried this on my waterline yet, rather as a liner and also all over the lower lid. It's perfect on its own as the color and texture are nice and it blends smoothly. I think it would make a good base for eyeshadow as well but I haven't tried that method yet.

Fantastic natural nude shade that's perfect for brightening the lower rim of the eye. Doesn't look fake (unless you put on too many coats) and it has great staying power. I'm very impressed and will repurchase.
This must be the worst eye treatment I've tried. It dried the skin around my eyes and is an all around dud.
I've used this for over a year now and I think it's fabulous. It's 100% organic argan oil and I can really see a difference in my skin when I leave it on overnight. My husband loves it too.

Did not work for me. Used it as an under eye concealer and within the hour it had creased everywhere and just looked terrible. Do not recommend.

Gorgeous formulation that imparts a natural glow to the skin. A little goes a long way and as the bottle is quite large it should last a virtual lifetime.
Worst dry shampoo I've tried. Enough said.

I was looking for a less expensive alternative to my pricey Trish McEvoy mineral powder and was so lucky to find this as a dupe. What I love about this powder is that it has good coverage without imparting the fakey, metallic "tin man" effect that so many mineral powders do. Also, the price is great, it has spf 20 and tends to last well although I do get oily throughout the day and need to touch up, however I find this occurs with all my foundations so I'm used to it.

Fabulous HG concealer. I use this instead of foundation on the discolored, red areas of my skin, mostly around the nose and chin. I then use Mac studio finish for pimples or freckles and lightly dust a mineral powder over the rest of my face and my skin looks perfect. This concealer is perfect for pigmentation or red areas.
I've used lipstains for years and this is one of my favorites. Great product.
Lip Treatments -Burt's Bees - Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil

Fabulous lip balm at a great price. Would have been better with an added spf.
This is a great cream but I think it's very overpriced. Every year the price goes up $1.50 and it seems a bit ridiculous. I've used the cream since around 2001 when you could buy it at Whole Foods for about $15.00. It now retails in the same store for about $30.00. The packaging is terrible and often cracks open. It's ruined the inside of many of my handbags. That said, the scent is divine and I love the way it feels on my hands. It does not, however, last after washing the hands.
Lotions/ Creams -Aveeno - Intense Relief Hand Cream

This is a great hand cream for the money and blows all other drugstore hand creams out of the water imo. Also, like the package says, it really does last after hand washing and I love the way it makes my hands feel. I just started using this a few weeks ago so I'm not sure if it would be enough to moisturize my hands in the depth of winter when they get really dry so I might use it in conjunction with something like Dr. Haushka's or a vitamin E cream.
This is the best brow color/polish I've found to date and I'm loving the effects. I have blonde brows and this colors them perfectly, it also looks completely natural unlike a lot of other products I've tried over the years. It adds a bit of texture as well which creates a natural look and feel. Love it!!
