Liquid -Sally Hansen - Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy Your Skin Foundation

OMG. I am in shock how bad this foundation is. Based on the reviews, I ordered Ecru Beige from Drugstore.com and I am NC20 in skintone. Let me tell you, as soon as I saw the color - i was sceptical because it looked greyish. Even though it was not my tone at all I wanted to try it because I thought I can change it to Creamy Beige or some other tones but the stuff was so awful. Its like putting some kind of clay mask on your face. And the smell was awful too. And another point why i would never buy this again is because it took me forever to wash this thing off my face. The next day i woke up with bunch of red pimples on my face. I can't wait to send this stuff back. Good thing is Drugstore has 100% satisfaction policy on this foundation. Not for me!
MUA is right. This color is perfect if you like your nails look natural. I got so many compliments on my manicure. It atually looks like I did french manicure. What I also like about it that it doesnt streak when you apply it. Too bad it was disontinued. You can still find it if you Google it. Of course you won't get it for its original price because you will have to pay for shipping. But it's worth it.
Polishes -Sally Hansen - NO CHIP 10 DAY NAIL COLOR

Bought infinite color. Very beautiful color. The color chipped on the 2nd day. Very bad quality. Will not buy again.
Wow, wow. Totally impressed. I read about this glaze in Allure magazine yesterday. Today I went to Wallgreens and bought it to experiment. I got Honey Caramel color. I left the product for about 7 min or so. (at least 3 min is recommended). After blow drying my hair I saw myself in the mirror and was really impressed by the results. It basically refreshed my month old hightlights. Love this product!
Just got this lip gloss yesterday. Absolutely love it. It is very pretty pink shimmery color. Looks gorgeous on the sun. As one girl mentioned already, the gloss doesn't come out easy from the tube so you have to dip it several times. But it's worth it!
Moisturizers -Shiseido - Bio-Performance Advanced Super Revitalizer

I have used this cream for about 7 years and I liked it. I stopped using it for about 2 years because I wanted to try something else on the market. Basically got bored with the same cream. But I tell you, I tried so many other moisturizers and nothing compares to this cream. I had to buy it again. Been using for 2 weeks and simply in love again. My face is glowing and very soft. My husband can't get enough of touching my face. :) I know its very rich and I had pimples sometimes from using it too much. You only need a tiny amount and first rub in your hands and then gently tap your face around. You don't need much. I have normal to dry skin.
Treatments (Eye) -Shiseido - Future Solution Eye and Lip

I just got a sample from Nodstrom and only used for 3 days but oh my god I already see the results. My fine lines around eyes are gone. I have tried many eye treatments and nothing helped but this one. Not sure if it will cure my dark circles. Didn't see any results as of yet. I think I am going to purchase this cream. I was told that this cream will last 6-8 months.
I used this product for 2 months and was very excited about it because it did help with my dark circles. However, I developed white bumps under my eyes (milia). I just stopped using this cream 3 days ago and already see an improvement (less bumps). It is too rich for my thin skin and I will not purchase this again.
Used this exfoliant for a year. Pricey but great exfoliant. After each use my skin feels very soft and radiant - actually feels like baby's face. Also, it erases my wrinkles on forehead. Will definetely repurchase.
I always used liquid foundation but I after tried BE I will never go back to liquid foundation. Yes, at first I hated it. I looked terrible. But give it couple of weeks until you learn how much you need for your face and you will be amazed. At first it took me some time to put it on my face; now it only takes seconds. I love it. One thing though is the brush. I wish BE made their brushes better.
Moisturizers -Paula's Choice - Hydrating Treatment Cream

I have normal to dry skin. I love Paula's cleanser and toner for dry skin but unfortunately this cream hasn't been working for me. After a day or two using it I have pimples all over my face. May be its too creamy? Not sure. Instead of my face I started using it on my hands.
Moisturizers -Paula's Choice - Completely Emollient Moisturizer

I have normal to dry skin. I love Paula's cleanser and toner for dry skin but unfortunately this moisturizer hasn't been working for me. My skin breaks out the next day. I kept using it and the pimples didn't go way. I stopped several times and gave it a try again but it would do the same thing. Too bad cause I though I found something cheap that works for me.
