Treatments -Burt's Bees - Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

Best cuticle product I've ever used! I have tried much more expensive nail care lines and I don't think any work as well as this one. I use it every night and no longer have the dryness, thick cuticles, hangnails, etc that I used to get all the time. Love the scent too. Will probably buy another to carry with me on the go.
Love this shampoo. Only clarifying shampoo I've bought in a long time. I like to use a lot of products on my hair, and this gets it soft and clean every time. I usually use it once a week (twice if I style my hair with a lot of hairspray) and follow it up with a deep conditioner. It it safe on color-treated hair and lasts a long time. Will definitely continue to repurchase.

Easy to put on and looked nice at first, but color didn't last. Worse, there was so much shimmer that wasn't noticeable at first, but after a few hours it was everywhere! Much better options out there.
My favorite eyeshadow! Can be used for light, natural look, or deepened for smoky brown eyes. Such a beautiful, unique color that I believe would be flattering with every skin tone and eye color. I plan on always keeping this eyeshadow around.
My go-to lipstick. Goes with everything, great on my skin tone and lasts really well. Definitely will repurchase!
Currently my favorite mascara. Makes lashes longer AND thicker and does not go anywhere throughout the day. Really the only con is sometimes it is a little difficult to remove, but it's a price I'll gladly pay for how great and long it makes my lashes look.
One of my new, all-time favorite blushes! Very light, natural flush. The glitter is subtle enough to not be obnoxious, but there's enough of it to give a really pretty glow. Sometimes I do prefer a blush that shows up a little more, but for a natural, pretty look I LOVE this!
Moisturizers -Philosophy - Hope in a Jar - for all skin types

One of the worst moisturizers I've ever tried. Somehow it manages to be both too thick and greasy and also not even moisturize. I woke up with dryness and flakes every time I used it. The smell is also awful. All this for such a steep price tag? Definitely do not recommend.

I absolutely love these! For 99 cents, I thought I'd give a couple of them a try and I was back the next day to pick up all the colors. Some are more natural shades that aren't too bold and there are also some very bright colors that are fun for a night out. They are very pigmented and they last all day! I have oily lids so if I'm blending several of them I do have to use an eyeshadow primer so they don't run together. I find they're best to apply with a moist sponge tip applicator. I would be willing to pay a lot more for these, because the price is amazing for the quality you get!
Loose Powders -Clinique - Blended Face Powder and Brush

I have been using this powder quite a bit lately and am very happy with it. It blends easily, sets foundation well, and lasts a long time. I do usually have to reapply once throughout the day to keep the shine away, but overall does a good job.
I was very excited to try this product out after all the wonderful reviews, but I was very disappointed. First, the packaging is less than convenient and it's too easy to pour out more than you need. I also was not impressed by the coverage. The foundation settled into several lines, and reddish problem areas still showed through. The foundation did last all day, but over time several areas seemed to turn orange-y when the color had looked fine when first applied. Overall it was "ok," but not better quality than I've come to expect from most drug store foundations.
