I received these in a swap and love them. They are the best eyelash curlers I have tried to date. No pinching just precise curl....
Best precise tweezers I have ever used.
I have only just started using this product (one week) in combination with Retin A 0.05%. So far I have not had any adverse reactions but have noticed that sunspots are already fading. I will update this review after one month of use.
I have been using Retin A 0.05% for over one year now purely as an anti-aging device and am very pleased with the results. When I first began I nearly quit (like so many others) due to the adjustment to the peeling and flaking. Thankfully that passed after the first 2 months and I rarely peel to the extent that I did when first trying it. I have been tempted to increase the percentage to 0.1% but after much research it appears that 0.05% works just aswell as the 0.01% so I think I will stick with what is working for me. Without doubt my skin appears more even toned and any wrinkles are very much reduced. My overall skin texture is smooth and subtle. I do however use this with a Hydroquinone 4% combo.
Primer/ Corrector -Unlisted Brand - Natural Born COsmetics Foundation Primer

This is a great primer under Graftobian HD Creme Foundation. I made the error of using a silicone base primer underneath the Graftobian HD and the combination was a mess. The foundation slid on my skin and appeared very oily. After communicationg with Powder and Paint online customer service they told me that I should 'NOT' use a silicone base primer and to give this primer a try. .....and it worked wonderfully.
This is a great brush for eyebrow powder application. I origanally used the 266 and found it to soft where as the 208 is much firmer and allows more precise and finer application.

I love this contouring brush...I find you can be very precise in the application of bronzer without looking over made up.....great brush.

I love most MAC brushes and this is no exception. The only reason I gave this a 4 instead of a 5 is because I feel that there is probably a dupe out there which could probably do the same job....with that said I still love this brush.
Highlighters -Revlon - Age Defying Spa Illuminator Pink Light

I have been looking for a highlighter for so long and got this in a swap. This is a great highlighter for under the brow but I prefer to use a powder highlighter (MUFE Compact Shine On) for everywhere else. This product is very cost effective and will last a long time hence why I said will not repurchase as I do not think I will ever run out of this!
After using Careprost and my eyelashes becoming so long I then found it difficult finding a mascara that would not lengthen or clump. So far Full & Soft is the best that I have come across. With that said I am still looking for my HG mascara.
I origanally tried Embark but found this to be a little difficult to smudge...I then decided to try Sketch and am very please with not only the color but also the application as it goes on so smoothly.
Love this blush...it is subtle but still noticable and gives a very soft warm flush to the cheeks.
Crème -Graftobian - High-Definition Glamour Color Creme Foundation

I purchased this in the Neutral #1 palette so as to find my correct shade which turned out to be Leading Lady. This HD creme foundation is amazing and you truly only need a very small amount of this product to get a full coverage. I purchased this from Paint & Powder online and I wish to congratulate thier customer service who have been very helpful and prompt in answering any questions I had. The cost is extreamly low...$11.99 for the pallette and 9.99 for the 1/2 oz. One piece of advice I have for anyone out there who is thinking of trying this or is having trouble with the product staying put throughout the day is DO NOT use a silicone base primer with this product. I contacted PP customer service telling them that I had a problem with this looking oily on my face and they immediately asked me if I was using a primer and which one. I responded by telling them that I was using my MUFE HD primer (of which I love under my MUFE HD foundation) and they told me that was the problem as I needed to use a 'non' silicone primer. I immediately tried this and the problem was solved....no more oily residue or shine and picture perfect skin :-) Personally I prefer to use this foundation for evening and special occassions as I prefer to use MUFE HD Foundation for my everyday use. Give this a try.....you will not regret it.
Primer/ Corrector -Unlisted Brand - Monistat - Chafing Relief Powder-Gel
jennnifer1911 11/16/2010 12:06:00 PM
Having tried MUFE HD Primer and loving it I decided to try Monistat after reading rave reviews about it on MUA and other places. Of course the main reason I decided to try this product was due to how cost effective it was but I must admit that I was not completely convinced that this product would actually work in any significant way.......and was I wrong. For me personally the Monistat Chafing Relief Powder-Gel used as a primer works wonderfully. I was completely shocked as to how my skin felt when I first applied it....smooth as silk. I could not believe how smoothly my foundation glided onto my skin after applying the Monistat, but the real test was to see just how long this 'primer' keep my makeup in place. Well I applied my makeup at 9.00am and after a long and busy day my makeup still looked flawless at 6.00pm. I have been using the product now for one week and I have not had any adverse reactions. I would highly recommend everyone try this before spending $30-40 on high end primers as it really is worth a try.
Treatments (Eye) -Unlisted Brand - Latisse Lash Growth Drops

I have been using the generic Careprost (Latisse) eyelash growth which is amazing! I like many others, was very skepticle about this product i.e would it work....will it irritate the eyes....will my eyes change color etc. I have been using it for 5 months now and my eyelashes are sooo long. I noticed a difference within the first month then did not seem to have any noticeable change for the next 6 weeks then suddenly on the 11 th week I had these wonderful long and full lashes:o) I hit my peak on the 14 th - 15 th week (so long that they now touch my eyebrows when I look up) and have absolutely no side effects other than in the first two weeks I had a very small amount of irritation on both eyelids which passed completely by the 3 rd week. As I mentioned I am now on my 5 th month on Careprost and will never stop using this product...I continue to use it every morning (the instructions tell you to use it in the evenings but I found that it caused my eyes to water at night and I was afraid that my Retin A would go into my eyes so I opted to use the Careprost in the a.m).
