Powder -Physicians Formula - Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Balm Powder

This works for me as a setting/finishing powder. I have yet to try it alone, so I can't speak for it's coverage. I like that it imparts some sheen without any obvious glitter. I use it very sparingly over my favorite liquid foundtion of the day, and that does vary from day to day! I never have to do touchups, the lasting power is quite good.

Everything everyone else has said that's positive. First brush for foundation I have enjoyed using. I prefer this brush to a dampened sponge. Never thought that would happen. Planning on purchasint the blush and the powder brushes also.
I quite agree with Starbuck65's review. I love the texture of the cream, and how my skin still feels moisturized the next morning, and all without any greasy feeling. Will continue using this.
I have really enjoyed using this. Palmers is a good, reliable brand with skin improving ingredients. The coverage is light-moderate, the finish is neither too matte nor too dewy. The problem: I can no longer find this.But I WILL keep looking, maybe online?
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - Colour Caresse Shine Stain / Shine Caresse

I have two of these, the red and the rose shade. Really like them both. The wear is comfortable and relatively long lasting. I love the combination of shine and stain. It's like having the best of both worlds. Plus, the color is natural looking. Doesn't scream out "I'M WEARING LIP COLOR!"
I really like this fragrance, I receive more compliments on this scent than any of my others. Lasts all day.......or night!

I was shocked at the excellent quality of this cream, considering how inexpensive it is. Not too heavy, absorbs quickly and very moisturizing. I have even used it on my face with no problem. I am very pleased with the performance of this product.

I bought 2 of these and returned both,Drying, also patchy color after a bit. They were relatively long lasting, but the cons outweighed this. I was disappointed.
Had high hopes for this product, On me, it fades away to nothing, and I mean nothing, after just a few minutes. And this is after layering several times. Will not repurchase.
Lip Treatments -Blistex - Moisture Melt Lip Protectant

I have really enjoyed using this lip balm. Moisturizing, not waxy feeling. If used at night, remains on til morning and lips are good to go. No dryness to interfere with lipstick application.
I've just purchased this foundation and so far I really like it. The coverage is excellent without looking heavy or mask-like, a little goes a long way, and the shade range is good. I also like the mineral sunscreen it contains. The shades do run light though, so be aware of this. My skin is light, I bought classic ivory, and probably could have gone with at least one shade darker. Too soon to tell if there's any improvement in my skin. I apply with a damp sponge and this is very easy to blend.
I like this foundation. It has good coverage, is easy to blend and lasts throughout a long workday. I do have to mix two shades to get a good color match, though. A damp sponge is the best way to apply. Also the finish is a little matte for my taste. But overall, I consider it a good buy and would repurchase.
Cleansers -Burt's Bees - Deep Cleansing Cream with Soap Bark and Chamomile

Was looking for a gentle, effective cleanser with no exfoliating beads or sls. After spending quite a bit of time reading labels, chose this cleanser. I do not like it. There is no need, that I'm aware of, for menthol in a facial cleanser. It burns my eyes. Also very difficult to rinse off, feels like some kind of slick film is left behind. Not happy with this product and will not repurchase.
Lipstick -Physicians Formula - Happy Booster Glow and Mood Boosting Lipstick

The rose shade is an absolutely horrid shade of pink. I would be embarrassed to be caught wearing it. I gave it a 2 because the product does have some good ingredients (peptides) and leaves a stain when it wears off, which I like. The application is streaky and uneven. Don't even bother unless you happen to be 12 years old. Maybe not even then!
Simply does not lighten dark spots. Enough said!
