As the other reviewers mentioned: nothing special about this mascara. Fat brush. You can buy better mascaras from the drug store.
Love. Feels like a luxury to apply. I have greasy, acne prone skin, but this doesn't seem to aggravate it. Priceless. Will purchase over and over again.
Burns my eyes (and they're not sensitive). Comes off super easy with tears. Like the argan idea, but will not buy again. Going in the trash.

Love the concept of the roller, wish more companies made products like this. Feel that it's more sanitary than touching my finger to my eye. Moisturizes so-so. Would buy again.

Horrible. Like smearing white paint on your face. If you can manage to get it in after 30 minutes, you're still stuck with a white cast. Going in the trash.
Palettes -Bobbi Brown - Brights Eye Palette Spring 2009

I am really enjoying this palette. The pots look small (they're smaller than a dime, but larger than a pencil eraser), but they are deep (I actually dug one out)! You don't need that much shadow to get an effect. They kind of remind me of the matte Urban Decay shadows. Bobbi's shadows are of high quality and the little compact is great! Edited 12/29/10: I don't use this palette. It's nothing but cute on my shelf. Just not colors I reach for.
Moisturizers -Dr. Denese - Wrinkle Defense Day Cream SPF 30

This cream is way too dark for the truly pale girls (when applied liberally as the directions say to get the full SPF 30 effect). It's also way too orange for any human! But, it does feel nice on the skin. A little greasy, but it settles in and does moisturize. I'm returning mine back to QVC.

Feels great but even Alabaster is too dark for us truly pale girls. Bummer, I love Bobbi Brown's line. Edited 12/29/20: This is my go-to tinted moisturizer. It's the lightest/palest I can find. When it's on my skin for a minute it turns a *slight* orangey tint, but you just need to make sure you blend well. Increasing to 5 lippies!

My absolute favorite. Smells exactly like chocolate cake my mom would make. I use the 3 in 1s as a bubble bath, shampoo, body wash, and gel to shave my legs. Love it!

Eh....greasy. Doesn't "sink" into my skin. Seems to stay on top of my skin and roll off if I rub it a lot. Leaves a greasy shine. I do like the light yellow color, though. Seems to even out my redness and works for my pale skin. I suppose I could put powder over it to ease the greasiness, but that's too much work. I'm sending it back. Smells nasty, too, like diaper cream.
Absolutely nasty. The Light Ivory 0 looked very pale in the packaging, but once you open the tub, you're met with an orange glob. I kid you not, if anyone's going for a pumpkin face, this is the color you want. What a joke. To give it some positive spin, it did seem to spread nice on my arm. But, it's still going back. Gross.

Very greasy looking. Doesn't sink in very quickly. Dared to bare is too dark for my pale skin. Hardly any coverage, even for a tinted moisturizer. Nice that it has a relatively high SPF for a tinted moisturizer, though.
Not bad. Makes your lips tingly, I'm assuming from the plumping ingredients. Wasn't the light peachy color I was looking for, but I'll keep it.
This used to be my favorite sunscreen for face (until I found Coppertone). I would use this stuff, never would get a sunburn, but it would burn my skin when I put it on, leaving me with a red face. Then I would try to put foundation over it (after it dried, or course) and the foundation would glob up. I'll still use this sunscreen if needed, but it can't be worn with foundation. It's one of the only faces sunscreens I've found that leaves a matte finish.
Doesn't burn going on like Hawaiian Tropics for faces. Looks shiny at first, but will sink in. Leaves a nice, moisturized layer to put foundation (my Prescriptives Custom Blend) on top without having the foundation glob up on your skin. The sunscreen gives a dewy finish underneath the foundation. Oh, and I can add the sunscreen on top of the foundation and still no globs. I couldn't do this with Hawaiian Tropics, which is why I found a new sunscreen for face.
