Eye Makeup Remover -Chanel - Precision Eye Makeup Remover

Just picked this product up this weekend...I thought that I might be spending too much, but then I actually tried and now I know it's worth every penny! This formula is so gentle and makes every inch of eye makeup dissapear instantly! I love the packaging with the quirt top. It also makes the whole eye area soft. I also love that it's not greasy at all, so, you don't feel like you have to scrub your face afterwards like with some removers I've tried (Clinique, Almay and the old standby Baby Oil)! I will definately repurchase!
This was a surpirse Christmas gift and as soon as I opened the box I was in love! The packaging is absolutely adorable...like a sweet Easter candy with it's soft yellow metal tin and cute yellow bow! Now, I have to admit that the first Marc Jacobs fragrance was NOT a favorite of mine - there was WAY too much Gardenia in it for me, and it would give me a headache every time I even was near the bottle. So, I was a little nervous about this one, but after trying it, I have to say that this will definately be a keeper! Although Gardenia is also very present in this one, it is smoothed out with the Sandlewood and Citrus notes, and it reminds me of my last trip to Hawaii and the wonderful fresh, scent of my Lei!
I got this as a early Christmas gift and although I've heard about it for a while, this is my first time trying it. I love it! It coats the lashes beautifully, does not clump, and REALLY does make your lashes thicker and longer - all while keeping them nice and soft. I plan on buying myself when this one is finished!
Eyeliner -Styli-Style - Flat Eyeliner Pencil (general)

This is a fantastic eye pencil. Of course I was initially drawn in by the flat shape of the pencil, but after trying it and feeling the great consistency (soft and powdery, and not oily), and great color pigment(New York is the one that I tried first), I was hooked! Even better, the pencil is SO long lasting! This is a great alternative to the liquid eyeliners that I have been using lately since they are the only thing that I have found that has any staying power. The price is great and even though you will need to be the special eye pencil sharpener, it is still a pretty good deal. I will definately try some other colors and the New York color will be a staple for me!
First, the bottle is EXQUISITE and I was very eager to try it...and I'm glad I did. I love the musky-spicy notes mixed with the tea and the white cocolate! On me, the fragrance is definately soft, and while it is not neccesarily long lasting - (but on my skin nothing lasts very long), it is going to be my new scent for the fall! Plus, my husband loved the chocolate notes on me! It definately makes me feel energized and chic when I wear it.

This is such a nice product! Just the right amount of shimmer and ALSO a great moisturizer... I used this almost the entire summer and was really pleased with the look of my skin. As with all of the Clarins products, the smell is absoutly heavenly too!

Cleansers -Dove - Essential Nutrients Cleansing Pillows

I have to say that after reading all of the reviews for this product, I was still drawn to this product becuase the idea of these "pillows" was still so appealing! However, I can say that although I didn't HATE these, they were a dissapointment. The pads themselves seem to small, although the exfoliating side feels nice. The lather also seems to drip into the eyes on many occasions and the pillow is also a little akward to hold. Overall, a great concept, but they need to do a little more work to make it a better cleansing product.
The packaging definately grabbed my attention...with that snake-y pink bottle...Like one of the other reviewers stated, I love it without really knowing why....The fragrance lasts a long time on me and I love the combonation of spicyness and the fresh apple! I wore this all summer and just felt great with it on!
This is a great neutral color that feels good going on, and has that great minty taste! I was very pleased and also love the tiny little packaging.... Would definately buy this again!
