Usually I love Clinique but this product is more for a person who loves a smokey eye, its not for creating a straight dark line. I got this in black but it looks smokey from the start. I have very sensitive eyes and this doesn't irritate but I would like a darker color.
This foundation is amazing, I've been looking for something simple and fast for my face that won't make me brake out. This is it! I use this daily without a powder, it keeps me matte and last all day. The product is thick and a bit dry if that makes sense, and this is great for covering acne scars. I don't go over scars with concealer that just takes too long so I dab a little extra foundation on those problem areas and that does the trick. I've learned how to apply this product I always put moisturizer before I apply anything on my face but I make sure the moisterizer is completely dry before I put this foundation. I've noticed it creates more of a matte finish this way. If I become a little oily durring the day I dab lightly and nothing is transfered to tissue paper. I've used this with Perfectly Real compact and it works well with that powder for extra matte finish that last forever. This is my favorite foundation, keeps my face even and clear and last longer than more expensive foundations. I bought this for around 24 bucks in "8 Golden Neutral" this does contain a bit more of a reddish tone than I'm used to but I love this product so much I don't care, you can barely tell anyway. Wonderful product!

Amazing product! I have curly, frizzy damaged hair so I need a product that will straighten my hair plus heat protectant and this does just that. I use this when I don't use my GH "its a 10" because of protein overload, so I switch around. I've been wanting to let my hair grow out so I've decided to stop using the starightner and have just been straightening my hair with a blow dryer and a round brush. This does the trick it keeps my hair frizz free and smooth. I pair this up with a leave in coditioner and I'm set to go. I use a bit more that the dime size that is instructed because I have a whole lotta hair, I probably use two dime size gumps of this and section my hair in parts and blow dry straight with a round brush slightly curling the end with the brush. I'm not fond of the smell but who cares about that, this stuff works! Oh and its not just for 24 hours it last days! Thumbs up for not washing your hair everyday!
Eye Makeup Remover -Equate - Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover

This is an okay product, better than a lot of other brands out there. I need a make up remover for my waterproof mascara but this does not remove it all. I'm left with black smudges around my eye. It doesn't leave an oil slick around my face which is good but Jojoba oil is better in removing waterproof mascara, very quicky and doesn't irritate eyes. Probably won't be buying this again but ill give it points because it is a better option compared to the other drugstore brands.

Eye Shadow -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Wet/Dry Shadow

I have this in gold which I love and in black. The black one is sooo highly pigmented that I hardly use it because I will look like a total freak with this on. I'm sure it'll come in handy some crazy night but its not goot for the day. They are extremely shimmery which is why I love the golden one so much, I use it as a high light for my inner corners and under my brow bone. They mix well with other colors and last a while, there's a lot of product and you don't need much. Cute little cases too.

The dark color will not show on skin at all! Even if I apply it like crazy! But the light color is awesome for inner corners of your eye as a high light and for a brow high light. Sometimes I use this as a base as its not too colorful and it helps blend some colors together.
Eye Shadow -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Wet/Dry Shadow in Gold Rush

I bought this during one of those huge sales victoria secret has, it cost me about 2 bucks or something. This color is amazing, highly pigmented and you can control the color by the amount of product you put on. I love putting this on my lids and then using a dark brown for the outer corners of my eye, this blends well with any color. Perfect for the golden chickas out there.
Lip Treatments -Victoria's Secret - PINK tinted lip balm - peace
deamber 6/1/2012 1:21:00 AM
The case on this is adorable, I got this in pink and it makes me look like a doll. It gives this nice pink glossy shade that looks like you just had candy and it smells delicious. I lost the cap in my purse so the product got dirty so I had to throw it away but I'm totally gonna buy this again!
Its a pretty nude/pinkish color, its very pretty alone or over lip sticks. I love to keep this in my purse for those days that I've put on too much pink or red lip stick, I just put this on and it darkens the color instantly leaving traces of the other color. This brings a nice nude color to the pink lip sticks I have making it the perfect nude/pink lip. It is a bit sticky just like a lip gloss and its very thick so be careful with your hair it will get caught on your lips! But overall good product, for a pouty look!
Cleansers -Olay - Sensitive Skin Foaming Face Wash
deamber 5/26/2012 3:05:00 PM
I love this face wash, it is for sensative skin, it doesn't have a smell and best of all it does not irritate eyes! This will not make your eyes burn like other cleansers, it is very gentle and will take all your make up off. I only use Jojoba oil when I use waterproof mascara as that's the only thing this product doesn't remove. This removes eyeliner, regular mascara, foundation, powder, eyeshadow just everything on your face that's not waterproof. I have never broken out with this gentle formula, it actually keeps my skin clear and doesn't strip my skin dry. I love the pump version of this because its easier then the other container where you have to open up and squeeze the product. I've been using this for years, in my opinion it is the best cleanser in the market.
This product is an okay mascara, its really dry but it adds definition. It does hold my curl and it does separate but it flakes. It dies up quickly too, but it does make my eyashes look cute. The brush is huge and take a while to get used to but it adds nice volume.
I have tanned skin and this barely shows indoors but if not blended well it will look blotchy outside. If you use a lot of this, which sometimes I do it won't look natural. I love blush so I don't use a lot of this on my cheeks but I love to use this as a brow highlighter and it works well for that. I do like to mix this with my foundation, just a tiny bit, for a dewy look and this is prefect for that.
The smell of this reminds me of when I was a little girl and would grab roses from the garden and leave the petals in water to create my own perfume. It smell identical! This is a tint so it tends to look very natural. I love heavy blush powders but when I just want to go to the beach to relax I wear this. Its looks completely natural which might be why some people hate it but I love it. It leaves your lips a bit dry so just have your chap stick ready. I don't directly use this aplicator on my cheeks because I think its gross to do that over foundation/moisturizer and then put it on your lips so I dab the applocator on my fingers and then blend it on my cheeks. If you use the applicator directly the foundation will get in the tint jar and just make a mess. It last a long time even while eating, running, and tanning, would definately repurchase :)
I got this color in black and one of the things I love about this eyeliner is that its really dark and pigmented. It does last for a while and it gently smooths on. Now the reason I wouldn't buy this again is because it makes my eyes red and itchy and its just not worth the trouble. Goof buy for those that do not have sensitive eyes.
