Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Rainkissed Leaves

Okay, I thought I was crazy for coughing and sneezing EVERYTIME I spray this, so I googled "rainkissed leaves cough" and apparently I'm not the only one! I don't even have a problem with allergies.. only this body spray. I spray it and immediately it's like it's hard to breathe and my nose and throat start to tickle and itch. I definitely wouldn't recommend this scent!
I LOVED this product for the first week. For a natural deodorant, I felt it worked really well - I applied about twice a day and I didn't smell. The next day, I only had a mild B.O. smell when I woke up (as opposed to a HORRIBLE one like I had when I used Secret, Dove, Ban, etc.) I was really excited to have found a natural product that worked. However, this morning I woke up with peeling armpits! It looked like after you have a sunburn and the skin starts to slough off. Really gross, and it was itchy. I thought it might be leftover dried-up deodorant, but I took a shower and used a scrub to try to get it off and there are still sections where it's peeling! It must be my skin. DON'T buy this deodorant.. it might work well for a week or so, but after that, its icky.
Eyeliner -Almay - Amazing Lasting 16 Hour Eye Pencil in Precise Black

I really like this eyeliner. It lasts for quite a long time (although it does fade) and stays in place, but sometimes the corners smudge a little.. but I think it looks sexy. :) It glides on really easily, too, and doesn't irritate my eyes like other eyeliners.
Liquid -Revlon - ColorStay Active Light Makeup SPF 25 ] [DISCONTINUED]

This stuff is okay - it does give my skin a nice dewy glow, but it has VERY light coverage and definitely does NOT have staying power.... it says it's for "active" people, but even if I'm just sitting around, it wears off in a few hours. I might buy it again just to use as a light coverup in the summer, but for fuller coverage its not really worth it. Oh and another note - it smells REALLY BAD. Like... almost like its spoiled or something, but I've bought two different packages and both have smelled that way.
I love the HIP eyeshadows - they're really vivid and pretty. This one is pretty good, except like everybody else said, the darker blue color isn't very vivid. However the turquoise is gorgeous and extremely pigmented. The reason I took off 1 lipstick - the color seems to wear off fairly quickly on my eyelids, even compared to other HIP eyeshadow colors.
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - HiP Color Truth Cream Eyeliner

It DEFINITELY has staying power - in fact, its hard to get the stuff completely off, even with makeup remover! Also, the colors are really vivid, especially the Teal which is super pretty. My biggest gripe, however, is that the brush it comes with sucks and after a few hours the eyeliner starts to flake off onto my face. :-/
This mascara is OKAY - but definitely not great. It makes my lashes only a bit more full than a much cheaper mascara could (Maybelline Full & Soft is comparable) -- and it seems to flake and clump more than other mascaras I have used. If it was cheaper I would like it a lot more, but for the price it isn't that great.
I've had mild to moderate acne all my life and it recently became worse, so I decided to buy a more expensive acne system (I used Clean & Clear before). Within a week of using this product, my skin actually seemed to look worse. I gave it a few more weeks, for a total of maybe a month and a half, and my skin was still getting more and more acne. I switched back to Clean & Clear and its helping a lot more.
Lip Gloss -Neutrogena - MoistureShine Lip Soother Cooling Hydragel SPF20

This is my daily staple lip gloss. It stays on for a fair amount of time, isn't sticky or goopy, and it really feels moisturizing. Plus I love that it has SPF20! My only complaint - some of the colors seem to be runnier/have a different consistency than the other colors. I use "Glaze", which is the darkest color, and its less runny than the others. Also I wish they would make a different line of this lip gloss with more obvious colors, as none of them really show up much.
I like this shampoo a lot -- it smells good and feels pretty moisturizing. The reason I bought it is because it's sulfate free, and any product with SLS irritates me so much (BedHead products actually made my scalp break out in scabs, and toothpaste with SLS gives me major canker sores!). My only complaint about the shampoo would be that my hair gets oily quicker than with other shampoos, but I'm guessing that's because its less drying.
