Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter - Cherry Tart

I have spent my whole life looking for this red. For some reason red lipsticks either scream look at my lips or turn orange immediately. I love this color and the smooth way it goes on. It is a nice red and wears well enough for me. I wish Revlon had testers so I could see how Fig Jam would look on me.

I love this product except it does make my nose a little oily by midday. I take blotting papers to work and blot and reapply at lunch to look fresh face all day. I bought the light and usually use ivory tinted foundation and the light is perfect for me. I don't mind the scent and love the way it smooths on so wonderfully. I also like the tube although I use such little daps I wish the hole were smaller. After applying I blow cool air on my face with my hair dryer to help dry it.
This mascara is too wet for me. It goes on fairly easy but every time I blinked it was everywhere. I even tried drying my lashes with my hair dryer on cool. Back to lash discovery I go....
I really like this product. I keep it at work to use during the day and it absorbs very quickly, so no oily fingers. I bought it instead of a cuticle oil as I assumed if it fell over when open, it would not all spill out as fast as an oil would. The "brush" is a little strange as it is not a brush but rather a soft, rubber tip. It does the job but is rather odd which is why I gave it a 3 in packaging. I think I would like a brush better. Does wonders on your cuticles though and is around $6.00. I would definitely buy again.

I have very fine, static-y hair and this stuff works great! My hair is chin length so it takes very little. I blow dry it with my normal styling product (which currently is Pantene weightless gel) and stop drying when still very slightly damp. Use this product and let dry naturally and it looks wonderful. I scrunch my hair as I am blow drying and after applying this. I got it on sale this week at Walgreens for $2.99 so it was a deal but I would happily pay the regular price of $4.99. I wish it were a tube instead of a tub but that is just me.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes

This is the only makeup remover towelette I have tried that does not sting my eyes. It removes face and eye makeup really well but I wish the towelette was a little thicker like Ponds. Fragrance is fine and it does not leave my face feeling "coated". I store the package in a plastic tub with a lid and they stayed moist until the end. Little pricier than the other wipes out there and I not sure why, although having no alcohol is a plus for me.
I am not sure about this product. I have been using it every other day for about a month and am not sure I am seeing a difference. I let step one stay on for 15 minutes and don't feel any time of stinging or burning which I guess is good. No breakouts for me. I have a small sun spot on my face that is still there and I am not sure I am seeing pore reduction. I had a 30% off Kohls coupon so the price was ok for me but is a bit high if you don't have a discount. Right now I would not buy again but I have another full box in the cabinet so I will update when I finish it.

I love the smell of these wipes. There are wetter than other brands I have used but that is ok with me. Eye makeup comes off easily but I don't wear a lot of it. They stay sealed nicely. They do sting my eyes a bit but all the ones I have tried sting.
Eye Makeup Remover -Almay - Non-Oily Eye Makeup Remover Pads

These do a good job at removing eye makeup. The pads are ultra thin so if you wear a lot of eye makeup you may go through them pretty fast. They do make my eyes sting a bit so I wipe over with plain water on a cotton ball when I am done. These are the first eye makeup pads I have used so I have nothing to compare them to but other than the stinging they aren't bad.

I love this stuff! It tightens up my pores with no burning. I wish I could find the towelettes for travel and I wish I didn't have to buy such a big bottle (hence the 3 for packaging) but otherwise it is perfect.
I love this mascara and keep coming back to it for the tiny brush. If you have small eyes and stubby lashes, this is the mascara for you. I don't know who can use those big fat brushes on other mascaras but it isn't me!

I love this product! It absorbs quickly, smells yummy and softens hands and elbows with no greasy feeling after. I paid $1.00 for it at Family Dollar. I only wish it came in a tube so I could carry it in my purse.
I read about lemon juice on this site and decided to make good use of the bag in frig. I squeeze 1/2 lemon into a bowl and apply with cotton pad. Let dry 15-30 minutes and then apply Queen Julene Mint Clay Mint Mask. When it dries, I rinse it all off in the shower. My skin has never been smoother and the sunspots are starting to fade. I bought a bag of lemons at Sams for $3.00 so this is a pretty cheap deal! Just be careful it doesn't run in your eyes.
This is my first review so I picked something easy to write about. I love this stuff! It was BOGO at Walgreens, I had read the reviews about it here and decided to give to a try. I have normal to dry skin and large pores on my nose. I love the way my skins feels after using this and I do think my pores look smaller afterwards. I even like the minty smell!
