This products really helps my long eyelashes look their best. I wear the brown, and even so, my eyes pop. I get compliments on my eyes all the time. It stays on all day, does not leave me with "raccoon eyes", and definitely does not clump. I go through a tube roughly every four months, although I do not know how that compares to other mascaras. Best of all (and this is a huge perk), this mascara is perfect for sensitive eyes. Clinique mascara always made my eyes water and burn, but this is the only mascara I have found that does not bother me one bit, even when I accidentally get some in my eyes.
I bought this product before prom because I was rocking the red lip. It tasted delicious, and it is all-natural so you can just lick it off your lips when you are finished. Only a pea-sized amount is needed, and really you only need to use it once a week. I thought it was pricey, but I will have to see how long it lasts me before truly claiming that statement. Best of all, my boyfriend immediately notice a different in the texture of my lips, telling me how amazingly soft my lips were every time we kissed. It's worth the price.
I use Str8 with Rusk Thick before I blow out my hair, and the combination of both products is amazing for my coarse hair! I use the Str8 second because it smells absolutely delicious. Only a little product is needed, and concentrate in on the ends. Rusk is the best line of haircare I have yet to find. It's better than the entire lines of Matrix, Redken, Bedhead (just the styling products though, bedhead shampoo = amazing), Joico, and Nexxus. I have never truly been happy with my hair until now. Buy some!
I have naturally coarse, wavy hair and when I use this product before I blow out my hair, I don't even need to use a flat iron. It leaves my hair soft, voluminous, and perfectly pretty. Amazing product!
It's the answer to inherited dark under-eye circles. I use it to cover blemishes as well. I'm not sure if it's meant for that, but it works amazing either way! I have been fair, tan, and now I have a medium skin tone, and all the time I have used this product. So it's adaptable, it's multi-functional, and it's not going to clog your pores! Sweet!
When I first started using this product, I purchased it with the starter kit along with all the other bare minerals. I continued to repurchase because I liked the way it set my foundation, but I soon came to feel like it was too expensive of a product for what it did. I now use a drug-store version of the mineral veil and it works just fine. A great product, but just an overly-priced translucent setting powder.
Well, I am a true fan of this product. I have yet to discover a better conditioner for my damaged hair. I was very surprised to see the mediocre rating on this product however, so I decided to read some of the bad reviews. It was reassuring to me to see that the good and the bad views said the same thing! Yes, the product has a coffee-like smell, and I personally love it! For someone who isn't a coffee fan though, I can see the objections. And yes, the product does take some shampooing to wash out, but a good shampoo and major lather does the trick. I have had the product used on me in a salon setting, where they apply it for you, set you under a hair dryer, and wash and style your hair afterward and never was I left with greasy hair. I bought my own tub after deciding it was more economical, and even though I don't have all those salon shampoos to pick and choose from, I still manage to wash it out just fine. Call me crazy, but my hair is stronger, softer, and longer (yep, there's the crazy) after I use the treatment. As for the price, I am saving now that I have my own to use, but I agree it's a little pricey.. It's worth it though.
I borrowed this conditioner from my mom once and wasn't quite sure how much I liked it. However, with continued use I realized how moisturizing it was for my extensions and also how replenishing it was for my natural hair which is constantly being colored, straightened, blow-dryed, and brushed. Each time I wash my hair I need less of the conditioner because it's effects seem to last. However, I try to avoid using this conditioner on the first inch or two of my roots, seeing as how it can make my hair somewhat oily. I must also add that I have naturally oil-prone hair and I am constantly working out and perspiring.
Treatments -Aveda - Brilliant Damage Control Spray

I have to first comment on the smell. I have extensions and the hair does not smell pleasant right out of the bag! This spray makes my hair smell so wonderful and masks the processed smell of my fake hair. I started using the spray to repair the damage that the extensions and daily straightening caused on my natural hair, and it did just that. My hair stopped breaking off and I noticed a better texture too. I like that it is a spray rather than a gel or oil. This product has definitely become a favorite of my hair care products.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Japanese Cherry Blossom Body Cream

This is by far my favorite bath and body works scent. Subtle, and layers well with almost all of my perfumes. Most everyone loves the scent, so it makes a great gift too! I prefer the cream over the lotion because it seems to moisturize my skin better, and also I like the container better than the bottle too!
I have acne prone skin, and I am constantly washing my make up brushes to cut down on bacteria. This product helps tame acne by keeping your make up from traveling where it shouldn't go. My concealer is applied over the product on any of my blemishes, and all the bacteria there stays there and does not melt off to the surrounding skin. I noticed a significant reduction in break outs after using this product. I also like the matte finish it gives my skin, and my make up never seems to stay on as long when I forget to use it! A little bit pricey, but I always buy the travel size. All the new variations are great as well! I definitely recommend this product.
