LOVE this brush.
Eye Makeup Remover -Maybelline - Clean Express! Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover

Love this stuff. I didn't have to scrub or tug at my eyes and it didn't smear my makeup around. Cheap and easy to find at the drugstore. I will repurchase.
I bought this without researching and almost didn't use it after reading the reviews. Yes, the packaging is wasteful and the gloves are too small. The bottle slipped out of my hands multiple times but it's an oil based dye so that's not surprising. I wish the bottle had grippy things on it, I think that would solve the problem. I had plenty of dye for my hair, which is almost to my bra strap. I have jet black hair and I dye it to cover my grey. It's impossible to find black dye that doesn't look ghastly on me so I normally go a shade lighter. But this dye in Darkest Brown is a really nice match with my natural color. I can see where people say this stuff turned their hair into straw. I conditioned twice and my hair seems fine. Doesn't fade too quickly on me. I just repurchased this.
This is a really nice product. It stays on longer than any other foundation I've tried and blends nicely into my skin. I don't think it lasts 15 hours, but I think I may touch my face a lot. I also realized I probably should try setting it with a face powder! I have normal to dry skin and I think if my skin was much drier I wouldn't be able to use this. I haven't broken out from this foundation. My two complaints are that the lightest shade is a little dark for me, and the price is pretty steep. But a little does go a long way.
I user this twice and it broke me out in huge cystic acne. I have more zits after two uses than I had in the entire last year. I moisturize with jojoba so I thought I would be fine, but not so. This foundation looked really nice when I first applied it but by the end of the day my face was a greasy mess.
Good price but washed out too quickly, even while using L'Oréal shampoo and conditioner designed for dry hair.
I have a deluxe sample of this hand cream is wonderful. My toddler had extremely dry, chapped hands from playing outside in a sandbox for about 30 minutes on a chilly day. This stuff repaired his skin very quickly. I took off a star for the price. $50 for hand cream? Come on! I don't know if I'll purchase a full bottle of this.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Mega Plush

This worked ok for me. It didn't smudge or flake but clumping was a problem and I'm not a fan of the brush.
LOVE this stuff. My lashes look great but very natural and the curl held up all day. My eyes started tearing in the wind but the mascara didn't budge.
This cream shadow is really nice. It applies like a dream. At the end of the day it looks a little glittery but I still love it.
This stuff dries fast, which is nice, but smells terrible and peels off my nail in one solid sheet within a day. I'm giving this two lippies because of how fast it dries. If you're someone who changes polish in a day or two, then I can see how this would be a favorite. But I'm sticking with my Sally Hansen top coat from now on!
Hair Color -Clairol - Nice 'n Easy - Root Touch Up

I love this for spot coloring an area that's going grey. It's such a nice small amount and it doesn't fade too badly. I have jet black hair and the black and brown colors work great for me.
Hair -Unlisted Brand - Hask Pure Shine Spray-On Luminator

Best stuff ever. I haven't been able to find this lately but if I do I'll buy three or four bottles.
Eyeliner -Revlon - colorstay cream gel eyeliner in black
kngfrank 9/24/2012 8:20:00 PM
This was not what I was hoping for in a gel liner. The brush is too fat, the gel is too dry to work with. The color is too sheer and it's sparkly, which I wasn't expecting. It did stay in place on my upper lashline without transfering to my browbone like so many eyeliners do, but I'm still returning it.
Hair Styling Tools -Sonia Kashuk - Bristle Hair Brush

Love this brush. I really wanted an MP but it's way out of my price range so I got this instead. It really helps distribute the oil in my hair to make it shiny and allows me to get by another day without washing. Highly recommend! *Edit: I still like this brush a lot but came back to take a star off because the bristles started to bend within a month of moderate use. Still one of the better boar bristle brushes I've used.
