I love, love this! I am a fair blonde and beauty counter salespeople always pair me up with a pink color so I end up looking like a doll. This was the case at Sephora but I stood up for myself and said 'Hey! How about Orgasm? I heard it looks good on any color skin!' and sure enough - it does! I have no reason to ever try a different shade again.
I bought this after an advisor at Sephora suggested it. The thing is that you need to warm it on your hand - if you don't it's so so super cakey and matte! I wanted a natural looking foundation with medium coverage and wanted glow. This is absolutely not it. I also ended up ordering a pump online from Nordstrom, since the packaging comes without the pump. I will never buy this again. I'm also pretty sure it dried my skin, too.
Styling Products -Got 2 Be - Kinkier Curling Spray Gel

I have soft wavy/curly hair, not a lot of it. I've been flatironing it for the past 8 years, occasionally trying products that would keep it curly and put together but with no luck - they all made my hair heavy, greasy or completely gelled up and therefore untouchable. I came across this one while hoping to try one of those new 'beach hair' products - they all run over $20, so with my previous experiences, I was hesitant to blow 20 bucks only to throw the product away later. I saw this at a Ride Aid and thought 'what the hell, it's only $4'. I tried it the next morning and absolutely loved what it did to my hair! Nice soft curls, I love the smell, too. I was even able to refresh my curls the morning after and the morning after that! Unbelievable, my hair wasn't all nasty and dirty with the product. Good job!
It's just perfect! I use it daily, alone or as a base for other eyeshadows (makes them look so much better, works with any eyeshadow). Does not crease (I was very skeptical, I've never used a cream eyeshadow that wouldn't crease) and dries very quickly to a soft, silky texture. I want to get more colors, but I'm glad I let the Shiseido counter guy at Macy's convince me to get it, goes with any outfit, perfect on a bare, 'non-made up' face too.
I am 29 and this is my first anti-aging night cream. I absolutely love it - I LOVE the smell, the texture is incredible - I've never had a face cream go on so smoothly, yes be so rich and moisturizing. I am positive I will repurchase when I run out.
Tinted Moisturizer -Clinique - Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer SPF15

I was looking for a tinted moisturizer for the Summer - I used Tarte last year and loved it, but because Macy's doesn't carry Tarte, I thought I'd give another brand a shot. I tested it in the store and thought it didn't have enough coverage, but I let the Clinique salesperson convince me, that it did and that I was going to love it. Guess what - I totally do! I first tried it a few days ago - so easy to apply, blends in great and I love the nice finish it gives my skin. Not shiny, but just 'alive' - perfect! I use a little more under my eyes and it works as a concealer. I can touch my face and it feels so great and moisturized. I will definitely buy again. The only thing I would change is the container it comes in - I feel like I can't really control how much comes out and I'm expecting to waste quite a bunch of it towards the end...
I must start by saying, that I've never used styling products. I hated the way they feel and weigh my hair down. After splurging on my post-pregnancy lift-my-spirits-up haircut, which I LOVED everything about - I asked my hairdresser about the products she used (i LOVED the smell). She got really excited telling me about this new line they carry and she said they're all perfect and she recommended especially the Creme for Style. I bought this and the Volumista spray. I was a little hesitant to use it, but it's amazing. I'm not that good at styling my hair, but this creme makes it so easy and it's so light! And the smell...mmmm.... even washing my hair 2 days later I enjoy it in the shower. I highly recommend it! I use it every time I wash my hair, so every other day and I've had it for 5 months now and I don't think I'm half way through it yet. So it's not that expensive after all :)
