I've always loved Olay products--my mom used them and I switch between Eucerin and Olay. I recently purchased this product because my Eucerin SPF 30 lotion just isn't cutting it during the cold dry weather. I was instantly satisfied with the results and my skin is now dramatically less dry!
Styling Products -Garnier - Brilliantine Shine Glistening Drops

I'm shocked this product only has 3 reviews (including mine) so far! I was running low on my giant bottle of biosilk , and decided that I should pick up an alternative just in case, because I really didn't want to spend the money on more biosilk (even though I do love it)! I bought this product based on the smell (it smells AMAZING), and low and behold, the smell isn't the most appealing aspect of the product. The consistency is fantastic. It's not goopy or sticky; only soft and silky. As with all serums, you obviously don't want to apply near the roots or apply a lot. So, if you follow those guidelines, you should be thrilled with this product!
Moisturizers -Eucerin - Extra Protective Moisture Lotion SPF30

I absolutely love this face lotion. I've been using it for a few years now (occasionally I switch it up in the winter). I'm obsessed with protecting my face from the sun, and this takes care of my moisture needs and sun protection all in one. I'm not much of a complainer when it comes to textures of facial moisturizers, but I will complain on behalf of people who are. It's a little on the greasy side (not a problem for me), and you have to rub it in entirely or else you'll end up with white streaks. Again, these are just complaints that I think would arise. I personally could care less.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Sparkling Peach Body Cream

Alright, let me first say that the scent of this lotion is delectable! It might be a little overpowering for some (or so I've heard from my aunt...a non-scent loving woman), but it's less overpowering after an hour or so of wear. It is a cream, so it's on the thicker side, but if you have extremely dry skin as I do, then it should definitely do the trick. Even though it is a body cream, I really only use it on my elbows, knees, feet, and hands. I would have to agree that it's a little too strong to be smearing over your entire body...
Absolutely love this shade! I've been searching for a taupe/nude shade without any luck...then I discovered t-bills putty. It requires a couple coats, but hey, I put two coats on regardless, so it's not much of a hassle for me.
I'm a huge fan of Essie nail polish, so needless to say, I love this vibrant shade of red. I don't like to give up red polish entirely in the summer, and this shade is vibrant enough for me to get away with wearing in warmer weather. I change my nail polish often (a little too much), so I never know the exact staying power, but I've worn it for a week without chipping...and without a top coat. Completely worth $7.00!!!
I would have never thought to wear silver nail polish, however, I saw Lauren Conrad wearing it in a magazine and was surprised at how cute it looked. So, I decided to give Essie Loophole a try. The verdict: as amazingly cute as I thought it would look, and as usual, Essie nail polish has great staying power! I've been into gold jewelry as of lately, and loophole doesn't look as dreadfully awful with it as I originally thought. In fact, it's a surprisingly nice contrast.
So, I already love voluminous by Loreal, and naturally glossy by clinique, but I really wanted to give this a try. I don't think there's anything special about it. Like some other people have stated; the mascara alone is fine, and the primer used with other mascaras works, but the two together don't do anything that spectacular. To say the least...this mascara wasn't a lash fantasy!
This is such a great shade of red. I wore it all through winter and recently retired it because I'm getting into spring colors. I can't wait to start wearing it again this fall!
These come in great colors and they're always updated. Its amazing that they really do try in 60 seconds. Most products make similar promises, but the products never live up to the name. This one really does, and I LOVE it!
Eyeliner -Prestige - waterproof/automatic eyeliner in "lightning"

I love this intense green. It looks so great with coral blush, brown eyeshadow, and a coral lip as well. Plus, it's waterproof and doesn't budge unless it's 100% humidity outside...which is never the case in NY.
This mascara is great! It easily can be turned from a daytime mascara to a nighttime mascara because it NEVER clumps, and you can apply as many layers as you want until you get the desired look.
I love that this black contains glitter, but it doesn't make me look like I'm about to go to a disco. It the perfect amount of sparkle! Such a great black for night.
This is the greatest cream blush! It's easy to apply, has multi purposes, cute packaging, it lasts throughout the day, and the color is a great coral...plus it doesn't make me break out, which generally you would think a creamy blush would. I truly can't say enough great things about it!
I have repurchased this several times. I LOVE the slight tint of red and subtle sheen it gives my lips...not to mention; it smells great, and it moisturizes!
