Treatments (Eye) -Clinique - Anti Gravity Eye Cream

not entirely sure if this helps reduce the appearance of lines yet, but it does keep my undereye area moisturized and does NOT cause milia which was one of my main concerns. yay! will follow and report back.
can't believe there aren't reviews for this yet! i bought one last week in Sunray and these are my favorite eyeshadows i've ever tried. incredibly smooth, very pigmented and they last forever. Sunray is perfect for blue eyes, it really makes them stsnd out. will definitely repurchase.
Lip Gloss -Cover Girl - Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm

really liking these! i got them buy one get one half off at CVS with my card. i forget the colors i got but one is your basic blush color and the other is more apricot. i like them a lot-they're more matte than clinique chubby sticks and the revlon version, and more natural-looking. i always think these things could be more moisturizing, but it's not bad. i like that they last, too.
this is a great gel! really provides a lot of hold without being crunchy, and the hold really lasts. my hair is pretty fine and is very difficult to curl, so this is a big deal. it smells nice, too. will definitely repurchase.

this product is AWESOME. totally perfect nude manicure in like 5 minutes, seriously. i don't even care if it chips tomorrow-would be very easy to fix. but for a working girl who loves having pretty nails but obviously can't afford manicures every week, i am in love with this.

i have the pink version of this-i think it's the same product-and really like it. it's a very sheer tint, but very pretty on my lips, and while it feels like carmex, it smells a little like vanilla. my lips are really dry lately, and not many things seem to help. i've tried vaseline and aquaphor, my old standbys, and while i will always use those, i am really enjoying this product, too. i just wish you got more in the actual stick-it's very slender.

i don't really like this stuff. my stylist gave it to me after another person in her salon totally messed up my color and she had to fix it-my hair has been more tangled, drier and more damaged than usual ever since. nothing major, just not that great-it doesn't make my hair feel softer or look shinier at all! i guess it does make my hair feel stronger, but i like conditioners/conditioning masks that have a lot of slip and make my hair feel really silky after. i much prefer 'it's a 10' to this and will not buy it again.

veeeeeery sugary fragrance. low staying power, pretty color in the bottle but it also looks super tacky. i like it but i'm 28 and i feel like it's too young for me. only got it cause it was $10.
i don't get it-i hear from practically everyone that this is awful for your skin and will make it worse. but i've been using it for years, and on my skin it works really well-keeps me fresh and glowing and safe from breakouts since the dead skin cells can't build up. it does dry my skin out a little but i just use a good moisturizer. and i like that i can use it all over my body, too. maybe i'm just exfoliating more gently than other people?

have i not reviewed this yet?! it is my absolute favorite eyeshadow set i own, even compared to my dior shadows and the naked palette. these ones last longer than anything else i own, and this particular palette is perfect for work. i just can't believe how amazing the quality is for the price. i've bought other darker shades, which do have some fall-out, but this one is just perfect.

picked this up on a whim today and really like it! it feels so nice on your lips and smells and tastes good as well. my lips are still soft hours later and i think it looks really cute. will re-buy.
Lips -Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain- Romantic
missmadisonave 6/13/2012 10:18:00 PM
oh my god, IN LOVE. i am going to buy like 3 more of these instantly and i hope they never discontinue. at first i didn't think this was pigmented enough, but it's actually amazing-it gives my lips this gorgeous, reddish stain that fades evenly BUT not for a long time. i also love the precision and that it's almost like a liner versus the tarte stain which is too chubby to line your lips with. i've been wearing this for a week now and have gotten so many compliments, no matter how much i wear (and not 'nice lipstick', more 'you look so pretty today'). this also doesn't feel drying at all, and i like the packaging. LOVE LOVE LOVE.
Lips -Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Stain Balm- Sweetheart

i am IN LOVE with these!!! i like them much better than clinique chubby sticks which i guess is what they're ripping off. i bought sweetheart today and tried it instantly. it's more like an actual waxy crayon than the clinique ones, which are really soft and buttery, and this color is beautiful-a brightish pink that's very wearable on my fair, cool skin. you can apply a little for a rosy, flushed look, or more for a fun night out. i put some vaseline on top just in case my lips felt dry but i don't think i really needed it. anyway, i put it on like 3 or 4 hours ago, and my lips still look awesome. i am totally buying more colors!!
have to agree with the other reviewer, the packaging sucks and i find that when i use these-although they smell nice-i always have leftover eye makeup smudged the morning after. they didn't break me out or anything, but they just don't work. i'm sticking to garnier.
