I love, love love this. I have searched high and low for the right moisturizer and this is now my HG. I usually HATE lotion and the way it makes me feel. This is not greasy or heavy.

I received this as a free GWP and I love it. It was a generous sample. I love the way it cleans and smells and the way my skin feels afterward.
I loved the original Moisture Surge. But I ran out, and I felt my skin getting dry and thought I'd try the new Intense formula. Huge mistake. It feels like I am wearing a mask. It is very heavy and thick and not at all like the original. I will never repurchase.

I like the way this feels. It isn't greasy or heavy and I feel like it is doing a great job. I always like Clinique's packaging and consider their pricing to be moderate and fair.

I like this a lot, it is gentle and effective! It is lasting me forever. I even use it on my eyes and it doesn't burn. I never have a complaint about Clinique's packaging and consider their prices moderate and fair.

This was very greasy. I didn't like it at all. I used it once and that was it for me.

I love this. My skin is dry and at 27, I have noticed wrinkles on my forehead. I feel an instant improvement when I apply this. It is moderately priced, and a little goes a long way!

I have long hair (below my bra strap) that on it's own is very fine and too thin. I tease it and have to go to great lengths to volumize it and keep it from looking stringy. When I heard about this, I had to try it despite it's hefty price tag. I'm glad I did! My hair was instantly fuller and on the second day it was still full and wasn't greasy. I was able to finger style and walk out the door. I couldn't give it 5 lippies because it is so radically expensive (I paid $26 for what I consider a very small bottle).
I got this for free and love it. It is thick, dark and makes my lashes look amazing.
At first I was not impressed with the application; I prefer the preciseness of the felt pen type of long wear lipstick, but in the end I got it on well. The shine from the gloss was AMAZING. This lipstick flaked off on my cup but was still on my lips pretty well for about 5 hours. The gloss wore off very quickly. But the color was perfect! (All Day Cherry)
This is one of my favorite polishes. I got it for a steal, and got distracted by some new OPI shades. When I finally got around to putting it on, I was amazed...it was the perfect purple. The color is outstanding and the shimmer is perfect. The only pic I see loaded here at MUA is not a great example of the color. I googled to find a picture that best represents it, and this is what I found (not mine): http://www.flickr.com/photos/lextard/2727476888/in/faves-8130278@N06/
This stain is ok. The color indicated was nothing like the color I ended up getting. My lips felt really dry and each time I wore it I was asked why I was talking funny and moving my lips strangely. It works well when combined with a lipstick.
*Update 8/2010* This is my new HG lipcolor. I can't count how many compliments I have gotten each time I wear it. I wear the shade Frenzy, even though it is deeper and darker than what I would normally wear in the summer- it's worth it for the wow factor I get and feel. I think this shade even makes my teeth look whiter... I am really enjoying this stain. I've tried others, and they left my lips dry. This one is moist to begin with but when you add in the balm, it's ideal. I like the shades offered, and the stain has lasting power. If I sleep in it, I wake up with a little color still (but no smudge!).
I really like this foundation. It is smooth and makes my skin look fresh and soft. It took a few times applying it to keep it from getting cakey and mask-like, but with a light hand it is an ideal foundation. Be careful trying to eyeball the shade though- I did twice and ended up with the wrong shade. The packaging is nice in the sense that the sponge is contained with but not on the foundation and I like that it is partly glass, but it was difficult to open and the bottom plastic part cracks easily.
Primer/ Corrector -BeneFit Cosmetics - The Porefessional

I love this. People could colonize in the pores on my face. My friend and I finally decided to see if there was something we could do about my problem, and we tried primer after primer. This was the first one we noticed an instant difference with. I purchased it on the spot. I've used it three days in a row now. My pores are smaller and my face looks smoother and my makeup goes on better. The only downside is the price. I'm hoping this tube lasts a while (a little does go a long way). Also, my skin is usually quite sensitive- but I've had no adverse reaction to this product.
