Mascara -Jordana - Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara

This really is a 'hidden' treasure of a great bargain of a fantastic thickening mascara. Just 3-4 strokes of this, and my lashes look great. Does not smudge, but removes easily. Go get you some!
Come on now! This product is a huge joke. Because of the rave reviews , I did pick this up (don't remember for sure, but I do hope I got it on some kind of sale) ! Yes, it works fine on your eyebrows..a fairly dry pencil that applies cleanly and doesn't smudge. But --and am I the only one noticing this??--it is SO TINY!! The pencil in it is very short and it runs out in no time. Maybelline must be making a lot of $$$ on this one. Sure, it's nice and skinny which gives you control, but a good $1 pencil sharpener will do the same for a nice Rimmel eyebrow pencil. For the price, what you are getting here is truly ridiculous. WAKE UP, ladies!
I had to hurry in here and write about this product. I wear a lot of eyelid primers (Ultima 2 crease not, fade not, MAC soft ochre paintpot, The Body Shop primer, etc.) I have never had a problem with any of these primers and I do not have sensitive skin. However, about fifteen minutes after I put this E.L.F. primer on my lids, with no other product over it, my eyelids were burning like crazy and even now, after I've removed it , my lids still have a burning sensation. In the trash this goes.
Eyeliner -Prestige - Total Intensity Eyeliner Deepest Black

Well, if you are looking for a truly intense, dark, Long-Lasting black eyeliner, this is hands-down the best out there. I use it on my waterline as well as near upper lashes. It goes on so smoothly and it's so creamy, but it stays put! I even used this for my son on Halloween to do his mime makeup, over a base of white liquid makeup (powdered).. It went on so deep and intense....he looked great, and no smudges all night. I have used MANY eyeliners and nothing has worked like this.
This mascara might be the BEST i've ever used. It thickens my lashes up immediately and dramatically! I use the waterproof formula and I've already bought a second one. Soooo good! Go and get some!
I just re-discovered this wonderful little product in my stash and I am wearing it almost every day now! The color on lips is just enough of the darker fall lip that is hot now, but it still looks soft on me. I am med-light complected so I don't want to go too dark. As cheek color, it is absolutely natural looking and so easy to blend. the color is great..not too purply like some gel type blushes. I just have one question...where can I get this in the US....I have had mine so long I don't remember where I bought it. By the way , the product quality has held up beautifully over time.

Had to join in with a positive review for this product. I have a drawerful of concealers, ever searching for the best one for my undereye circles. This is pigmented enough to truly do a nice job of covering, and the texture is creamy and easy to apply without being greasy. A+, Maybelline!!!
These were BOGO1/2 off, so I figured I'd try a couple. What a marvelous find! The minty ones are amazing, with wintergreen being my favorite, (you don't find it too often) and the eucalyptus and peppermint also very nice. These balms are very comfortable on, PERFECT texture and long-lasting. Now, the tinted are also wonderful ... As soon as I tried the Pink Quartz on, I was reminded of my MAC tinted lip conditioner, a product I love. The texture is again lovely, with a nice subtle vanilla. These are a super buy on an excellent product. Go get some!

Wanted to like this, as I usually like 'foodie' scents, but it was too cloying and sweet for this 'forty-something'!
Concealers -Revlon - New Complexion Concealer [DISCONTINUED]

The pinker shade In the Light compact is the closest match I've found to the pricey, but very effective , Bobbi Brown Corrector in LIght Bisque. This Revlon concealer is one of the best d/s concealers I've tried, and I have a drawerful! The consistency is just right...neither too runny or too thick, this creamy formula does a marvelous job of disguising my bluish undereye circles. I've already hunted down a backup of this because it's so good.

hg l/g for me! Lovely nude, peppermint-y gloss. On my 2nd tube! great product.
Gorgeous deep burgundy red with some shimmer...love it, and essie polishes wear so well. Highly recommended.
I think Innocent is a lovely, classy rosey-taupe shade. I've had it on my fingertips for a week now and it has worn welll. five lippies!
I absolutely love this nail polish! The color is perfect for summer, and i must add that you can't limit this to just pedicures. I did a manicure last night with this and it is really pretty, very flattering on the hands.
OH, my. Had to add my two cents here. I have horrible memories of Odyssey-induced headaches. This scent is lethal, and I , too, can hardly believe Avon still sells it. Avoid at all costs!
