Great product, it does a superb job of covering whatever you need covered. I primary use it under my eyes and to cover some redness around my nose. I'm a NC 25-30 with yellowy undertones and medium worked for me.
I use Certain Dri, which works well with controlling wetness, so I mainly look for odor protection in a day deodorant. My Certain Dri + Degree combo has been failing me lately for so I decided to give this stuff a whirl despite my low opinion of Secret's effectiveness. Flawless works great for controlling odor and the creamy texture nicely offsets Certain Dri's drying effect.

This brush is lovely! It works great with finishing powders...especially CS's silica powder. It also seems to be good for applying harder density blushes. Also, it seems to pick up more product after it has been "broken in", so give it a few weeks.
I purchased this at CVS in the pomegranate variety. The "vitamin" part is probably a gimmick but I was in the market for a new shampoo that is sulfate free and this one fit the bill. I really love the fruity smell of the shampoo (most sulfate free ones are really earthy) and the packaging is awesome. As for performance, it is a really nice shampoo and left my thin hair soft and with volume. The price point is a bit much but I usually end up paying a similar amount for sulfate free shampoos.

This is a fantastic product that is just as good as UDPP. The only difference is that eye shadow shows up a *little* more vivid with UDPP but with SI blending is much easier. I like SI better because the packaging much better, more sanitary and less wasted product.

I smelled this in a magazine and loved it...a very nice sophisticated sweet with a light powdery twist. However, on my skin all I could smell was powder, which I'm not a fan of. It might be better for someone else!

Fantastic product, very soft and applies minerals and blush nicely. WELL worth the $10 price tag.

This is a superb lip gloss, it makes you lips look flushed and luscious (more so than most of the lip plumpers I have). The texture if a gel and it seems to last a decent amount of time for a gloss. There is a light scent when you first apply but it fades very quickly.
This is a very simple strawberry/watermelon perfume. I like it enough but it just smells like a strawberry body spray, pleasant to most noses but not memorable and definitely not worth the price.
Love this, it adds such a pleasant pinky-peach glow to your face and lasts all day. The packaging is nice and you get lots of product. I never tried the original luminous, but I can see what the raves were about.
2NITE is a gorgeous dark baby blueish holographic polish. The base color is very pretty and looks great even when the colorful flash isn't visible. The holo is very ingrained in the color and almost looks mirrorish to me. The wear is fine, not the best but with no base and a Poshe topcoat, my manicure seems to be lasting just fine.

I wanted to like these liners so much because of all the positive reviews, but I was disappointed. I purchased the Midnight Blue, which looked gorgeous in the pot. The color was lovely, but the liner flaked on me regardless of how much or little I applied. The product didn't last the whole day in solid line form the the way MAC Fluidlines do. They are good quality but not as good as they should be for the price you are paying. I returned mine and will be paying a few dollars more for a Fluidline.
Love this OPI, it reminds me of the color of the bottom of a pool...the shade is a rather calming blue. Just Groovy is an eye catching semi bright creme but isn't too in your face and very summery.
Wow! I got the alcohol roll-on and adore it! I can't compare this to the original but its very sweet smelling without being over the top and the lasting power is superb! No problems with CS and my order arrived very quickly. Came in a cute pink bottle.
I love this fragrance, despite it being a Mary-Kate and Ashley perfume. The notes include mandarin orange, berry, pomegranate, amber and vanilla. It is a really unique and fun perfume. The lasting power is really good and I can still smell it hours after application. Well worth the $14. price tag.
