I really liked this product! really shiny as a top coat and sure does extend the wear of my polish. my nails are thin/weak, short/medium length that are prone to of course chipping and peeling; that being said, without this top/base coat my polish lasts to my next shower (the next day) which is not ideal because its all chipped and well for lack of a better term, ugly! however, with this top/base coat my polish lasts at least 3 days which does say something about this product. also looks great by itself i will re-buy :)
i bought Times Square and the color is beautiful! great pigmentation! does dry fast too. the brush is relatively wide and makes application easy, and smooth :) with that being said, application can also be a little messy because the consistency of the polish is a little on the "looser", "watery" side but still very pigmented. 2 coats do the trick a third could probably be done without making your nails feel thick with polish. a top coat completes the look. the wear of the polish for me (thin, medium/short nails) is about 2 days. which is totally fine with me because i cant stand seeing my nails the same color for more than that. bottom line, i would re-buy in several colors!
Lotions/ Creams -Aveeno - Active Naturals Eczema Care Moisturizing Cream

This product worked great for me and my mother! I don't think I have eczema but I did used to get these red bumps all over my face for no reason that itched really badly and made my skin peel (only when I was at school so it had to be something custodians were cleaning with, or weren't cleaning with, that I was allergic to). And my mom gets really irritated, red and itchy on her chest when she eats certain foods. So she decided to buy this and let me tell you this definitely works for us! My itchiness is gone, peeling is gone! My mom's rash comes and goes but when she applies this stuff it calms the rash down. Plus it leaves your skin so soft. If it doesn't work for rash or eczema for you at least it can be used as a moisturizer, I think.
Mascara -Cover Girl - Lash Blast Luxe Black Cabernet

i love the color! i love the mascara! doesn't weight my lashes down a bit and can be applies twice or more for more dramatic lashes. i do have to say i was a bit disappointed that people weren't able to see the sparkles from a distance but from up close i can and they look pretty i dont think it makes them look fuller, just more defined and a teensy more lengthier
i love this face powder. i don't need much coverage but for the little that i need on a regular day out its perfect. on a night that i go out it's quite build able and gives a good coverage too without getting cakey or nasty looking. it leaves my skin looking natural, and smooth. i like to mainly use it for my redness on my cheeks and it definitively tones it down to almost invisible just a bit pink which is OK bc then i don't need blush hehe..

this product is OK i mean the packaging is super cute! the smell is really nice when you smell it once in a while all the time it kind of gets annoying.. overall moisture it pretty good but if you let it dry on your lips then they get, well, dry and as if i hadnt had any chapstick on all day if you like it gets addicting and you start putting it on very frequently
Styling Products -TRESemme - Instant Heat Tamer Spray

well, i have a hair type that gets greasy really easily compared to others. i was worried that this product would make my hair greasy and shiner than the natural shine it already has..but it didn't! it leaves my hair sooooo soft at the ends where i straighten it the most and my hairstyle stays put without bending or twisting by the afternoon! the only thing that i don't like is the smell, im not very fond of the tresseme heat protectant line's smell but once i straighten my hair it kind of goes away i think that i'd buy it again :)
