I love these eyeshadows. They go on really easily and once they set, they stay put! I have never had then crease or rub off. The colors they have a beautiful and not too shimmery. I would recommend trying these if you aren't sure.

I love these eyeliners. They are very pigmented and stay on forever! I can only use certain eyeliners because I have sensitive eyes and these liners to not bother me. They are great liners for the price, especially since they are a more upscale brand.

I have been a nail biter ever since I was little. I recently stopped, but my nails and cuticles are always so dry! I've been looking for a product that will make my cuticles soft and healthy looking. I love the Burt's Bees brand so when I saw they had this, I knew I had to try it. I am so glad I found it!! It's amazing!! I have used this for 2 days now and my nails have NEVER been this moisturizers an healthy looking. It instantly makes your nails look and feel better. I would imagine over time they are going to look even better! The price was reasonable, especially since it is a great product. I don't mind spending the money on it. The smell is also wonderful. It smells like fresh cut lemon, which I love. Overall great product. I definitely recommend it if you are on the fence about buying it.
Cleansers -Clinique - Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam

I have tried many facial cleansers and this is the only product that has worked for me, in regards to clearing acne. It cleanses my face so well and dries up any acne spots. This cleanser is not too harsh on my sensitive skin like all other acne cleansers were*. * I do not use the entire 3 steps ( cleanser, toner, lotion ). I only use the face wash. I found that by using all the steps together dried my face out horribly bad. All three products had acne medication in the ingredients and were just too strong together.
Scrubs -St. Ives - Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control

I was looking for a good exfoliater because my skin is flaky and dry in the winter. I also have had a really bad acne breakout on one of my cheeks. With the dry skin, the acne was trapped under it and would not go away! I used this scrub once and my dry skin was gone!! It completely softened and smoothed my skin. My breakouts have since gone away. I do not use this every day. I use it about once to twice a week, depending on how dry my skin feels. I do not use this as my only face wash. After I use the scrub, I use my usual facial cleanser as well. I purchased this product because of the reviews on MakeupAlley. I would like to state that some reviews said that they saw more blackheads then before they started using this product.* * I saw a few more blackheads as well, but I have figured out that they are not new blackheads! The blackheads that I am seeing were trapped under dead skin! I couldn't see them because they were so deep. Because this product worked so well, I was able to see them and get rid of them! LOVE IT!

I really love this eye primer. I had never used a primer before and was always having to reapply my eyeshadow. The first time I used the primer I was amazed. My eyeshadow stayed on all day without having to be reapplied or touched up .I highly recommend it!
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Covet

These eyeliners are awesome. I am sensitive to most eyeliners and Urban Decay's 24/7 eyeliners do not irritate at all. They are highly pigmented and apply so easily. I have noticed that the eyeliner stays put all day. The covet color is such a pretty green that compliments my hazel eyes so well.
