The colors in this palette are beautiful and vibrant. You can do so many looks with this. The shadows apply smoothly and blend effortlessly. I do have a problem with fallout and creasing. The creasing is easily taken care of with a good primer. All in all, a great palette!
I love this concealer, it does an amazing job at covering my under eye circles and eliminating redness from acne. A little goes along way, so the tube will last forever. The only downfall is that there are only three shades to choose from.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

I know this has cult status with most people, but I think it's a good primer, as opposed to a great one. I find the formula to be a bit too thin and the wand is hard to get out of the tube. It doesn't do as good of a job on crease prone shadows as Too Faced does. Even so, I still like it well enough and will use the rest of my mini tube.

I liked this at first, as it gave my skin a nice glow. It did make my skin shiny during the day, but my skin is oily, so I can't hate it for that. The major problem is the separation that happens in the tube. You end up with color at the bottom of the tube, with a milky white liquid on top of it. If that problem was remedied, it would be a pretty good product.
Vile and absolutely horrible, I'm saying this both about the packaging and scent. The scent itself reminds me of Scotch tape, just awful. It's plastic smelling and just reeks. The packaging looks like a cassette from 1994.
First, let me say that I love the smell of this. I love anything herby or camphory smelling. But most importantly, does it work? No, not for me anyway. I noticed no difference in my skin using this, just felt some tingling when I put it on.
Cute bottle and name, but to me, this almost smells like beer. I asked my Mom what she thought and she said that it smelled like hairspray. It's soft and floral, not really very powdery in my opinion and has decent longevity. I can see this smelling nice on the right person, it just doesn't suit me though.
Hm, another sweeter than sweet fragrance. I smell something orange and a ton of sugar and a bit of smoky vanilla. Boring as could be. On a better note, I love the red bottle.
The only thing that keeps me from liking this is the loud patchouli note. I absolutely hate patchouli, otherwise it's a nice fragrance. It's all orange gummy candy and earthy patchouli, kinda hippyish.
Cleansers -L'Oreal - Skin Genesis Pore Minimizing Gel Cleanser [DISCONTINUED]

This didn't minimize my pores, it did okay at removing my makeup (though there was some still there that I took off with toner). It has a pleasant smell and didn't sting my eyes, so this is a decent cleanser, but don't expect much more.
Moisturizers -L'Oreal - L'Oreal Skin Genesis Daily Moisturizer, SPF 15 Lotion

In terms of moisturizing, this was great. It left my skin hydrated and helped my make up glide on effortlessly. Then the break out occurred. I had pimples under my jawline pretty badly after I started using this, which doesn't happen very often. Another gripe is the bottle, you can't see how much is left in there because it is opaque. The sparkles arn't really noticeable. If your skin isn't acne prone, then I say give it a try. But if you suffer from acne at all, skip it.
Very disappointing. I had a friend in high school (which was about ten years ago) who used this and her skin cleared up totally. I figured since my skin wasn't as bad as hers that it would work miracles for me... WRONG! It didn't do anything negative to my face, but it definitely didn't do anything positive either. I used two cycles of it a few years ago with zero results. I still have adult acne and a couple months ago I thought I'd give it another go and again, zero results. Pro Activ is a waste of money and time.
I like this, but I'm not a die hard fan. It is a somewhat mature scent, though certainly any age can and should wear it if they like it, it's just a bit heavy and has that classic, powedery air that older fragrances have. There is something about it that makes me sniff my wrist over and over again, it's very different from anything I own. I wish I could be brave enough to wear it out in public, but I don't think I have quite enough moxie to pull it off! It requires some confidence to really "wear" this and not have it wear you.
I think this "cheap" box color is wonderful. I've used several different brands of box colors with so-so results, I've also had professional color done and I have to say Colorsilk is by far my number one choice. My hair always feels soft after I use this, due to the conditioner packet that is provided (that stuff should be sold on it's own so it can be used anytime) and the color always looks good.
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Coconut Passion EDT

Yummy vanilla and coconut, perfect for summer. My boyfriend said he even smelled a slight hint of suntan lotion. I wish it were a tad less sweet, but I still love it.
