People just shouldn't buy these if they want an eyeliner - it won't work unless you want a thick line. As a shadow, however, they are great. I have two; a shimmery lilac and a medium brown. My mom enjoys the black one. There is a definite cooling effect, and I've had mine for more than a year and a half.
Lip Treatments -Badger - Cinnamon Bay lip & body balm

I've had Badger lipbalms for over two years. This one is good, and I really preferred it to the spearmint one. The consistency is really oily and mushy, and never really truly moisturises your lips. Basically just sits there or gets rubbed around so that it looks like you ate something greasy and didn't use a napkin. :)
This looks horrible once it chips (very, very soon, even with a good topcoat on). Has a tendency to go on streaky and dry too fast. Good colours. Looks great on.. but watch out for those chips..
I only buy Roxy if it is on sale. And it has to be really, really cheap. Roxy has some really stupid looking t-shirts that just have their name on it, and expensive jeans and bathing suits.. but sometimes there is something great at a good price.
I am looking forward to trying their Extreme treatment mask. I think (& hope!) that it would work a lot better than this did. This mask just didn't do anything for my hair that regular conditioning wouldn't. Big waste of money..
This really dries my face out, but it is good, I guess. Never really removes my eye makeup, but.. can't have everything.
I have a sample tube of this. I've been using small amounts of this on my face, usually just a little bit in dry areas.. but yesterday I used it on all of my face and had the WORST day of flaking and redness. I still have marks from the rash I received yesterday. I cannot figure out if it caused it, and frankly, I do not want to use it again and see if it did cause it. This smells good, but, ideally, no one should use products with artificial perfume because it is just another irritant.
This just wasn't the best foundation. Nor even a great foundation.. that's just all there is to it. Coverage too sheer, etc, etc.. heard it all before..
I only got this because my dermatologist recommended it for my hideously dry skin. I do like it, and enjoyed even more the many samples I received in small tubes. This is a very thick, moisturising, scent-less cream that works well on dry hands. I was in a hurry once and put this on my face before I ran out of the door and to the car.. wow, what a mistake. I got out shopping and looked in a mirror and saw the greasiest skin I had ever seen. Oh well..

My friends and I have all had trouble with the tins getting stuck.. one time it took an hour during class for us to open the vanilla one. These aren't disasterously bad lipglosses, but they are drying (at least for me) and have an extremely cloying sweetness that could either be a pro or a con. Some have a nice tint. Not great, though.

I agree with everything the other reviewer said below me. I honestly have no use for this product since I cannot for the life of me figure out how to use it, if it says not to wear on eyes. I guess... no.. there's no way I would wear this goopy stuff on my lips. The glitter does not even show up anyway. I feel sad for spending $5 on this.
Concealers -Stila - Stick Concealer [DISCONTINUED]

I like the packaging. There is a lot of concealer.. this will definitely last for years (unfortunately there is the truth of it going rancid). This isn't as creamy as I would like, and the tone is a bit too yellow, but all-in-all, I sort of like it. I don't know.. my skin is super dry, so if I don't have the right moisturiser on this just looks horrible. Really accentuates flaky skin. Hard to blend under eyes. When I bought this, I actually planned for it to go back to Sephora right away, but never got around to it.
The fact that I had used all of the product up in less than a month was upsetting considering the price. These are just slightly tinted lipglosses that have no staying power and a slight fruity smell. Take a trip to the drugstore and there are many other options, including Bonnie Bell knockoffs. Dissapointing and humiliating realising that I spent $24 on this.
Once I fell asleep with a nose strip on, and I woke up an hour later. I tried to get it off but it was literally glued to my face. It hurt like hell when I finally got it off.. These things are just adhesive on a strip designed for your nose. It basically just pulls up dead skin. Hurray.

I sincerely wish that I had not spent my money on this. The colour in the pot is vastly different from what it will turn up on your eyelids. I have this in a dark green shimmery colour, but once I apply it, it just looks like a ruddy camoflauge colour with no shimmer. Sure is sticky.
