Dark Beige Blonde 72 (Sweet Latte) - I was hesitant to try at home-color because my dark blonde hair always pulls red which I hate. I did some research and decided on this color. I am already a level 7 and just wanted to color some grays and my roots. It turned out really well! Nice color, not too red. I'll buy again. The only downside was the strong smell, even after 3 days my hair still smelled like chemical.

I love this product and have bought it many times over. My hair is dark blonde with slightly darker brows. This color matches perfectly. It is so quick in the morning when I am rushing to work-swipe it on and comb through with a brush and I'm done. I do have a hard time finding it in stores but that is why there is walgreens.com!

Lip stain is moderately moisturizing and lasts a few hours. To my disappointment, the shade Sugar Violet is looked more red than cool berry on my very fair skin.

I love this eyeshadow--I have bought it in pretty much every color. I use to never wear eyeshadow because it seemed every brand and texture always creased. This product really stays put and lasts thru the day--it is wonderful. I initally tried applying it with my finger, but that didn't work too well. Now I use a sponge tip applicator (Simply Basic at Wal-Mart makes a great, really cheap one), and it works great. The color tranquil rose makes my blue eyes really pop.
Concealers -Neutrogena - Skin Clearing Oil-Free Concealer

This is one of my favorite concealers. I doubt it's ability to clear acne but from strictly a makeup point of view, it is of good quality. I use the fair color and it blends perfectly with my skin. It isn't cakey or heavy. I love to try new products, but this is one of the few things I have stuck with for years. I agree that the package isn't as great as it could be. Sometimes way too much comes out, or when the product stops dispensing it seems there is still a significant amount of product left in the pen that you just have to throw out.
I thought this was too dry and cakey. I won't purchase again.
The egg-shaped foundation sponges are perhaps my greatest beauty find EVER. They come two to a pack for $1 at Wal-Mart. I have tried so so many brands of make-up sponges but these are awesome--they blow everything else out of the water. They do not absorp the foundation, are great for blending, and you can't beat the price.
I bought the lavendar scent which was pleasant. However, I think clean and clear do a better jobfor a cheaper price. These seemed to still leave a bit of a sheen on my skin.
I too used to Jane clear mascara and suddenly couldn't find anymore. I am glad more companies have come out with clear mascara--this is the best I have tried. The covergirl version left my eyelashed with a white and crusty goo after a few hours. This product imparts a clear, wet look on your lashes that last all day. My only complaint is that it kind of clumps lashes together--nothing a last comb can't fix, but does add another step to my already rushed morning routine.
I used this on my lashes, and after a few hours it turned white and crusty--yuck!
I had bought this product in the past and wasn't too amazed. I recently bought it again, deciding to give it another try. I have very light skin--this product just gives me a weird orange color. I remember why I didn't like it the first time. I won't make the mistake of buying it again. :(
