For the price and the quality I would say that this item is just okay. I bought this are sephora in hopes of it being just as good as Anastasia tweezer. Unfortunately, these remind me of just regular 2/$1 tweezer you can get at walgreens. If you are willing to spend that much for a tweezerman tweezer, I would recommend spending a few more dollars on Anastasia Tweezers. They are so much more sharper and worth the cost.
I really like this brush! The bristles are stiff but still very soft. I think it is too dense for using bronzer but is great for mineral make up. The only downfall is that the handle keeps separating from the bristle! My sister and I both have one and experience this.
Hair Styling Tools -Unlisted Brand - HerStyler Tourmaline

I purchased this on ebay for $60. It came in a 3 piece set with a baby flat iron and a curling iron. The price for this is fairly good. This is also sold at many malls for an overpriced amount (I think $200 for just the flatiron itself). This flatiron heats up pretty fast and sustain heat very well. I would say it straightens my hair very well! This is probably one of the best flatirons I've ever used. I personally think it is also better than the CHI.
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Summer Fruit
lein1015 5/8/2010 3:08:00 AM
I really wanted to like this product, despite all of the good reviews. However, it doesn't feel as if it is going on my lips. Also it smells a bit funny. At first it smells like some sort of fruit and then mexican candy. Don' get me wrong, I love mexican candy, however, just not on my chapstick. =(
Although there are many that do not like this sunscreen, I personally do. It does protect my skin against the sun and it also does make my skin look radiant after I place it on my face. I usually mix this in with my moisturizer and place it on my face after I get out of the shower. With this sunscreen, please be cautious about the amount that is being used. I usually use a little bit smaller than a pea size, as with this product, a little goes a long way. I've found that if I use too much, my skin becomes extremely greasy. Throughout the day, my face does become oily, but it's not mainly from the sunscreen. The packaging for this product is good. There is a lot in a bottle and this product does seem to last a long time. As for cons, there appears to be no cons.
I'm not sure if it was just me, but I did not feel that this product gave me sun protection. I normally place on sunscreen as a daily ritual. However, when I went snowboarding, I decided to use this product instead. Unfortunately, I had a little bit of a burn on my face for a day. I really do not recommend this product, nor will I ever repurchase this. I really wish this item worked better though.
Lips -E.L.F. - Therapuetic Conditioning Balm-strawberry cream

I figure chapstick is chapstick. This product actually is not that great. It goes on smooth, which is a plus, however, it leaves a white residue on your lips. If your lips are dry (like mines) you'll see more white residue adhere to the driest areas. You're better off just using vaseline. <----------edit------------> I hate to waste products. I kept trying to find ways to use this and I think I found it! I don't recommend using this on dry lips as this makes the dry parts of the lips stand out more. I usually use this after I use my chapstick and it makes me lips a lighter pink. I actually do like that about this product. However, its a bit waxy, almost like lipstick.
Lip Gloss -E.L.F. - Super Glossy Lip Shine SPF 15 - Pink Kiss
lein1015 4/21/2010 9:20:00 PM
I'm not so picky on lip gloss. However, or a dollar, it's an okay lip gloss but I would not repurchase it. It does have a nice color and shine, however, the smell is not so pleasant and doesn't go away either. I'd rather save the dollar and invest in a lip gloss that doesn't smell so yucky.
I really wish I read the views on this before I bought this item. The palette is nicely made, however the concealers are very difficult to get out! You seriously have to put a lot of pressure on the concealer to get it out. In the end, not much gets on the brush and not much shows on your face.
Self Tanners -Unlisted Brand - Malibu - Hemp Golden Glow Bronzing Moisturizer
lein1015 3/12/2010 2:11:00 AM
This product is very consistent as well as has a nice color. I usually use this item in between self tanner applications for moisture as well and maintence. The smell is light and yummy smelling. It does not stink over time either! To top it all off, it's super cheap! The only downfall for this item is that it does not give you that much color if used alone. It's worth a shot!
Self Tanners -Jergens - Natural Glow Foaming Daily Moisturizer-Medium Tan
lein1015 3/12/2010 2:08:00 AM
I would have to say that this product is pretty decent! I got it for about 8 bucks. I've tried the other self tanners made by Jergens and this product does not have a funny smell after awhile. Maybe because of the way its dispensed? Anyways, this item actually does give me more of a color than their lotion. I exfoliate a lot and use this afterwards and I'm amazed at how effortless the application and color is! What also amazes me more is that I used a scrub with oil it in and I still don't get streaks or spots. As for the smell, it has your typical self tanner smell. Unlike some where the smell gets stronger, it actually dimishes over time!
I stumbled upon this item during a swap. I read reviews on it and I just had to get it! I'm a bronzer freak and I absolutely love love love this product! The shimmer is not too much but it's noticeable - same for the smell. The only setback with this item is I wish the packaging wasn't so made of cardboard. I read somewhere that the the main ingredient is sugar. I'm afraid that it'll attract ants if the scent isn't hidden.
Cleansers -DERMAdoctor - Wrinkle Revenge 2 Cleanser
lein1015 12/22/2009 3:51:00 PM
I love love love this product! My esthetician recommend this for me. This cleanser is literally a 3 in 1 for me! I have combination skin and mild acne. It helps clear up my acne, is an anti-aging product and also is a great exfoliator. This item makes your skin look more radiant and healthy! I highly recommend this! However, a setback for this product is having to wear sunscreen (which you should anyways).
I am not satisified with this product. It's the worst, even though this is the first self tanner I've used. It smells awful, it stains, it doesn't go on evenly, and it takes forever to dry. I hate it. It also makes you feel icky and dirty and nasty. I don't recommend this product to others.
