I might be addicted to this stuff. I use it every night before bed. I notice a difference when I don't use it. I can see it staying a part of my routine for a while. Also I really like the packaging.

I'll start by saying I have this in intense black. I really like the packaging, and how it goes on. Why is it a glossy black color? I hate it. I have no idea why anyone would want a glossy black eyeliner. Yuck.

I love this mascara. I love it. I love it. I love it. It is buildable. It doesn't get me "panda eyes." It doesn't clump. Oh did I mention its buildable for day to day wear and also going out. My makeup bag will never be without it, and that is saying something for a mascara junkie.
With this foundations feel it is better to leave it to a pro/con list... Pros: Covers imperfections better than any foundation I have used Great packaging Lots of color choices for us pale girls Has some staying power Cons: Matte/satin finish (which with pale skin makes me feel like I kind of look dead) Makes me break out like crazy Settles into fine lines/wrinkles Now with this list you would think it is a no brainer... Stop using the foundation. I can't!!! It's an endless cycle... I would love to stop using it but how will I cover the pimples! Now the cycle is still not over, but I have found that it makes a great concealer. I also use it on my neck and chest (occasionally), because it does not transfer on to clothes. Then again I did get a pimple on my neck from using it (seriously who gets a pimple on their neck?) would I buy it again.... Who knows... be warned you may get hooked.
My naturally very healthy hair was recently destroyed by hair dye, and terrible shampoo. I needed a miracle, as I am growing my hair out. And for $3 that miracle arrived in a purple tube. I started by using in the shower and letting it sit for a couple minutes. My hair was recovering. I was very pleased. I was going to get a hair cut, and they always want to cut off more than I want. So I needed to trick her into thinking my hair was healthy. I put this stuff in and wrapped my head up and let it sit for about.... 10ish minutes. And guess what, I tricked her. She even asked what products I use because it was so healthy. Needless to say I will be purchasing this product again.
Maybe I had a bad batch (is that possible?.) I hate this shampoo/conditioner. I have never had a problem with a shampoo/conditioner until this guy. My hair was feeling a little dry so I figured something with olive oil by a good brand would help. No my hair turned into straw. Thanks Freddy.. You suck.
Want your skin to feel like a baby's bottom? Use this! The smell is perfect. I happen to really like the smell of lemons to begin with... But it's a good lemon smell not artificial. It probably overpriced... But the body shop always runs deals so I would wait for it to be under $10. I always turn off the shower when I use body gel/cream/scrub it seems counterproductive to have it running, I say this because my boyfriend used it and said it was stupid because it dissolved while he was using it... It's sugar so it will dissolve quickly. What a dope. :)
Im not using this foundation right now, but it's the only foundation I bought twice and used every drop of. It has a dewy finish. Never broke out or had any bad expierences with. Medium coverage. Overall a solid foundation (hah!.) I guess if you have oily skin this would be a bad call.

I got this for free from my mom. She has a smashbox kit auto delivered, and doesn't use it. I am addicted to it. I use it under my eyes, then cover it with finishing powder. Bam. I did run out once, and was very distraught. Luckily another kit came. Maybe it's not for everyone... But I love it.
I was so excited for this eyeliner. I thought would have to scrub it off... Nope it comes off all on its own. How sweet right? No. I will admit I have this problem with all eyeliners, but for paying this much I expect wizard tears in the formula that make it stay.... Not the exact same formula as L'Oreal. Bobbi Brown... You let me down.

This stuff does nothing but feel awesome when you put it on. And either I don't use it a lot or it lasts forever. I do enjoy having it in my makeup bag. Sometimes when I have a headache or am hung over it's just what I am looking for. I know there are other products that are similar and cheaper, and will probably do equally as little as this one.
I have 3 of these in rotation. One in my purse, makeup bag, and in my bathroom as a back up. Am I obsessed.... Maybe. It's just so darn refreshing. It's a part of my make up routine. Wakes me up, and I am good to go. And hey, it never hurts to have eye drops on you, you never know when you will need it.
Umph. What a waste... I looked at the brush at Sephora, and thought it could be a great mascara. Wroooooong. Why does it have to clumpy?? I was burned by the original hynose ((what was with that swirly brush?)) I'm not sure why I would try it again, but I did. Never again Lancôme.... Never again.
Ethereal. That is how I describe this blush. I am fair, with dark brown hair, and blue eyes. If you have that combination BUY THIS BLUSH. The heavens will kiss you, and leave you with perfect pale pink cheeks. I imagine if you were blonde with fair skin and light eyes it would have the same effect. It is very pigmented so it will last you a long time. The packaging is awkward, but it seems study enough. Score!
This is my go to mascara. I don't want to love it as much as I do. I love buying new mascara, and I am always upset that they aren't better than Buxom. When you get a new tube it is VERY wet. You blink, and you have mascara under your eyes. Give it time to dry out a bit, as it ages the more magical is becomes. I HATE spider lashes. That is not a good look... I don't care how long your lashes are if the resemble an arachnids legs. I want it all in a mascara.. Day, night, length, volume... The list goes on and on. Buxom is buildable with out clumping. I have standard issue lashes.. Nothing terrible and nothing spectacular. It doesn't give me a false eyelash look, but it's the closest I have come. My search will continue, but in the mean time my lashes will still look fabulous.
