dirt cheap, sold in a zillion stores, and I love how the colors look on me (I especially love the Watermelon lip smacker for its color). Not for those who are serious about lip color (I love eye make up but don't love lipstick on me) -- this stuff gives me a bit of color, shine, and polish but is no fuss.
I wanted to love this. It was so hyped up on Sephora. But.. it's a smudgy mess. Yes, it makes my lashes darker, but that's about it. Clumpy and smudges under my eyes in about 5 minutes. I will take Rimmel over this any day. So bummed!
Meh. It's a do-nothing mascara. After about a thousand coats my lashes were a bit darker. Not much else. Skip this!
I really like the coverage and the color match for me is incredible.

awesome brush. use with my Bobbi Brown cream eyeliner and I get that thin, controlled, close-to-the-lash line I always wanted. Price is perfect and easy to find (LOVE TARGET!) Get it!
this mascara is okay -- it darkens my lashes, didn't clump. but there is no 'oomph', and I think the color is a bit 'dull' (I like a bit more gloss in my lashes.) It's okay, don't hate it, just don't love it.
in a million years I would never have noticed or picked up this blush, but I was interested in buying the infamous NARS "O", but didn't want to spent $25 or more, and read about Luminous on MUA. I figured I had nothing to lose since the price was so low. Anyways, I LOVE it! The color is super pretty, and it shows up well on me. The packing is not good, but for the price I can forgive that. This will be in my blush repetoire from now on!!!

I am trying to grow my dry, frizzy, color-treated hair from a GI Jane look to something longer (anything is longer!). AntiSnap is doing a nice job of keeping my hair from breaking during the process. The price is a bit high, but I feel like it's really doing its job. The consistency of the product is not the nicest (that's been covered) but once it's in the hair, it does not matter!
This is a very good leave in conditioner that leaves my dry, frizzy hair managable but not gross and greasy. Just use a little though -- if you use too much you might be a bit weighed-down. Very inexpensive, good value.
Eye Makeup Remover -Clinique - Take The Day Off Eye Makeup Remover

This stuff really does a great job of removing waterproof mascara. All other eye makeup removes I have used never seem to get it off no matter how much I try. It's a keeper
I have dry, frizzy hair that I color constantly (I have a TON of gray hair). Crema leaves my hair super soft, with 'slip', and just plain works. It's so darn expensive though! It kills me to buy it but my hair is a damaged frizzy mess without it.
I love Garnier Sleek and Shine leave in conditioner and styling milk, but this conditioner, along with the shampoo, leave my thick coarse hair GREASY and nasty. I'm disappointed, I wanted to like this and gave it a fair shot. It's going into the trash, which I never do for shampoo and conditioner.
I wanted to like this. I like other Garnier Sleek and Shine products (leave in conditioner, the smoothing milk) but this shampoo leaves my hair looking and feeling greasy and dirt, not sleek and shiny! I have THICK coarse wavy hair, it's hard to weigh it down, but I am now wearing a greasy helmet after a few days use. It goes into the trash with the conditioner....
I break out at the drop of a hat, and I never, ever thought I would try an oil cleanser. But.. the other reviews intrigued me. I have been using for about 1 week, and I LIKE IT! My skin feels clean and not greasy at all, and I think it's pulling some gunk out of the pores on the sides of my face. Impressed!
I have dry, sensitive acne prone skin. I have used all manner of antibiotics, expensive alphahydroxy creams, gentle cleansers, etc. My skin is 'okay' but it looks dull and I get zits (cystic and otherwise) around chin and jaw. Decided to try raw honey, and it's only been 2 days, but I'm IMPRESSED. My skin just looks 'brighter' and some of my acne is clearing up. I just wash face with gentle cleaners (Neutrogena Extra Gentle Cleanser or Cetaphil), smear honey on face (the raw honey is thick and doesn't run too much), let it sit for about 30 minutes, and rinse with warm water. That's it. I'm going to keep at this. I feel hopeful -- my skin really does look nicer! UPDATE: still going strong. Cystic acne at bay and skin is looking brighter!
