i love this stuff! it's great for almost anything. i use it to clean my makeup brushes and it works great. i originally got it to use it to wash my eye makeup off, then started using it to wash my whole face. i have combo/oily skin, but many face washes strip my face and dry it out way too much making it flaky after wahing. but this stuff is gentle enough, cleans thouroughly without stripping your face entirely. wonderful!
i went to walmart hoping to get the queen helene clay mask, but this was all they had. i had already read the reviews, so i decided to give it a try. i actually like it. the smell is fine, the texture is nice, i like the squeeze tube. i have only used it once so far, but it was not over drying at all, made my face feel smooth and soft, after moisturizing of course. also a huge bonus for me is that my face was a lot less oily throught the whole day! yay :]
Bronzers -Stila - Stila Sun SPF 15 Bronzing Powder - Shade 01

I bought this is shade 1.. and it looks like it wouldn't be flattering to my skin in the compact, but it is. i have fair/fair-med skin. this is a nice buildable bronzer without shimmer. the color wasn't orange on me, but it's not a brown color either. it has a bit of a redish or oink hint to it.. which i thought i wouldn't like but i really do like this bronzer. it's very pretty. and it blends well, nice finely milled bronzer!
It's a nice product for ten bucks. i have mine is vegas strip/light bronze. It's not super cheap or anything, but it isn't expensive compared to high end brands, which I tend to go for most. I've tried it as an eyeshadow, but it doesn't look or apply the best. the light gold shade, no matter how hard i try doesn't apply well on to my lids. The darker bronze colors apply a little better, but you have to layer it on. I don't really use it as a bronzer alone, i think it would take a lot of layering to look bronzed. But it does work great as a highlighter! It gives a pretty shimmer, but not overpowering. It looks nice. I sometimes add the darker shades over my bronzer, then apply the lighter shades as highlighter. If you're going to send ten bucks it could be in your better interest to spend a little extra for a better quality. But if you happen to be in target of walmart, and want to get a highlighter/bronzer, this is a good purchase!
Favorite chapstick I've tried! I hate when i lose this and have to use some of my crappier chapsticks. This stuff is smooth and feels nice. Great for using under glosses.

I would have never have thought to purchase this. But my sister gave me a few when she purchased a bunch of them. She liked them a lot. And so do i. They are not waxy, kind of slick. I like that in my chapsticks. they are very moisturizing. I'm reallly picky when it comes to chapsticks, and this passes my test. Provides a great base for your lipgloss. My boyfriend also likes these. They arent girly, rather neutral. The plastic covering is annoying, you may just want to take it off. Its a great basic chapstick.
Ah a staple. I am in love with these and wish there were more lipglosses made of this kind. Its super yummy. The mint flavor, smell, and feel is wonderful. You can lick your lips and get a little burst of freshness. how amazing is that? definitely a MUST TRY!
Ah this stuff is great! i love the yummy mint taste, feel, and smell. i love the ultra one. Its very moustirizing and not sticky. i love applying this stuff. I just don't like squeeze tubes. I've gone through many of these. It's a staple. Nice shine too!

This isn't for this specific color.. but I have to tell you this is a super great eyeshadow. Their colors are nicely pigmented and blend extremely well. The texture is so soft. They also are generous in the amount they give. The compact is nice in size and has a mirror. This definitely is the same or better than some higher end brands! IN LOVE WITH THIS!
Eye Makeup Remover -Beauticontrol - Lash & Lid Bath

I have to tell you this product gave me styes. I had never ever gotten any before.. and once i used this product (only new product i started using at the time) I got a stye.. I kept using.. not knowing why i got it.. and i got two more. Devastated at how terrible i looked.. I thought.. and this was the reason. I stopped using it and have not gotten any since. This was over the course of two weeks. But aside from that.. it removed alright.. wasn't the best but it did do the job. i recommend Physicians Formula.

I love this cleanser. I feel safe using it, i know it won't break me out or anything. A little goes a long way! Huge plus! It may be a tad expensive for some, but it lasts.. so it's worth it. It does dry out your skin a little.. but also remember to exfoliate. It reduces the dry feel.. and then moisturize! Your skin will love you! And any slightest dry feel is taken care of completely!
i love these eye shadows. They are rich and come in some really unique colors. They also have some really metallic colors that you can't really get elsewhere. The staying power is great. to maximize it use their primer!!! I don't like the glitter shadows though.. their texture seems to be a little different. The packaging is cute too! I'd recommend this to anyone, especially if you're looking for bold colors. Blends well and add some layers to intensify.. otherwise if you want you can get more of a sheer color with just a little bit.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

This is a dream come true. I love wearing eyeshadow, but before this.. I got soo sick of looking disgusting a couple hours later because my eyelids were creasing like heck! I love the wand! I love the little bit of concealing effect it has. i apply a nice thin (not too thin) of a layer on my lids then blend with my finger right away. It works wonders on my oily lids, and my eyeshadow has NEVER creased. A bit of advise is once it sets.. DO NOT reapply anymore or it will just get all messed up. The only problem I have had is that in one tube the bottom broke out with a slight fall from my countertop. And when it seems you're all out, cut it open and store in a small jar! I highly recommend.. it aslo helps intensify your eyeshadow.
The packaging is cute and unique. The colors are nice and sheer. Adds a great hint of color. The stay isn't great.. but it's easy to just reapply. Feels great on lips. My only issue was when i licked my lips it has the gross taste that's indescribable. Makes you want to gag a little. I'd wear it more often if it weren't for that. They could add a little flavor I guess. I have mine in 13 rose a' l'eau i suppose.. and i love the color it leaves my lips! if i find this color in another gloss that would be perfect. i also like that it leaves your lips looking fresh. the only reason i wouldn't repurchase because the taste of this is yuck!
Available in nice complimenting colors. I love the sparkle, yet it's not overpowering ;] It's a little thick for some.. i probably wouldn't want to wear it everyday. But what really helps is to wear chapstick underneath your lipgloss. feels much better to your lips! It stays on well.. the gloss fades as the day goes on, as you eat, etc but still leaves your lips looking nice. it can be sticky, so i wouldn't wear on a windy day with your hair down! a huge plus with these is that the smell is great, and the have no gross lipgloss taste.. which i despise! Go buy one! they are only 14 bucks!
