Treatments -Cosmedicine - MegaDose Skin Fortifying Serum

I have been using this serum along with all the other products in the oily/combination kit. So far it has worked wonders on my skin. It's smoother and has a better texture than ever before. Does it smell? Slightly. The smell is because the product has large amounts of yeast in it's ingredients. It's no worse than the smell of making a starter for sourdough bread. As a lot of the overwhelming complaints about the smell are coming from people who got a sample I wonder if they are using too much of it? You only need a really small amount and the smell goes away fairly quickly after application of a daily moisturizer. This may also be the problem with the greasiness most people are experiencing. It is extremely slick because of the silicone and you only need an extremely small amount of the product. I really love what this product is doing for my skin and will continue to use it.
Polishes -Revlon - ColorStay Always On Nail Enamel [DISCONTINUED]

This definately lives up to its name on my hands this polish went about 14 days before it started showing anywhere. I had it on my toes for almost two months in the summer before it really needed anything. Crazy I know. i have it in plumberry ever after. This is a decent shade but it's not on my list of favorites. I found though that if you use the top coat on other nail polishes it also works pretty well. Since I'm not very excited about the colors they come in I'll just keep using the sealant on other polishes.
This stuff is great it's dirt cheap and comes in some fun colors. It's about average though when it comes to chipping and peeling. I have it in mania and zenith. These are both great and a have a shimmery color change effect.
I have this in Jezabel and I love it. It's a great deep burgundy color. Though it's definately for evening wear. The formula is very smooth and creamy. The only problem I have with it is its occasional tendency to wander off my lips. You really need a good liner an average one just won't cut it.
I didn't really like this nailpolish much. I currently have it in Delilacful and I've tried a few others in the past. This stuff just chips right off whether or not I use a top coat. In fact I've never had a worse nail polish when it comes to cracking and chipping. The only plus size is you get a lot for your money. I guess that's so you can keep fixing it.
I LOVE this lipgloss. I have it in carney and it is magnificent by itself or over a lipstick. It has a wonderful minty tang to it. The only problem I have with it is my mom keeps stealing my tube and using it all.
I have this in black currant. It has a good texture and stays pretty well. I'm just not happy with the color. It looks nice in the swatches and in the tube but it just goes on very bright. it turns out a bright/Pinkish berry color.
I have this in Midnight Cowboy and it's a wonderful color. The product however is difficult to apply straight from the package and I find a little difficult to apply overall. Maybe it's just me. It does look lovely on the skin however.
This is a really small amount of product for the cost. But the consistency is wonderful. It feels so smooth and creamy on but manages to stay put. I also so like that they include the big fat sharpener in the package. Naked however didn't work out for me as a color. It wasn't quite what I was hoping for. I prob won't buy this again unless they came out with some more colors.
I've gotten this in three colors Argent metallic(silver), Prune metal(metallic purple), and Brun Cuivre(gold). I love the silver and purple but the gold doesn't work out so well on my skin. These liners have an amazing staying power. They also really add a pop to your eyes because of how metallic they are.
This is a wonderful product. THough I find that if you apply it dry you don't get enough pop. The best way to apply it is with a wet brush. Then you get a marvelous color. I do like the brush that it comes with. However, the way the package is designed it's easy to spill and I feel like a lot gets out and is easily wasted. But I love it so I can forgive the packaging.
This is a great pencil. It's a wonderful color that I find I can wear with a variety of lipsticks and glosses. It also has nice staying power. It doesn't leak off the lips and lasts for a decent period of time.
Mascara -Maybelline - Lash Expansion [DISCONTINUED]

I find this to be a fairly average mascara. It does do a good job with lenghtening and itthe waterproof is definately waterproof. It doesn't really curl very well though. It also doesn't do much at all to thicken. It's not bad for just a standard mascara not an HG though.
This really helped to make my eyelashes more noticiable. it definately added a lot of length. I have had the same problem with clumping though that some of the other reviewers have mentioned. I find if I comb it through a few times before I apply my mascara I can get most of the trouble out.
I have this in Drama,Spectra, Silver Screen, and Extreme Nicole. I love these eyeshadows and use them almost exclusively. They have nice staying power and come in some great colors. I'm so upset that Extreme Nicole was only a limited run. I like how I can see the color through the packaging. Makes digging through my piles easier.
