I bought this since I had a coupon for L'oreal and figured I needed a new nail polish. This is a gray color with a purple hue without any shimmer. I loved the color however I did not love how all my nails were chipped the next day! I will be returning this polish.
I thought this was just an average mascara that didnt hold the curl even with an eyelash curler. It was $2.97 at my local Target so I figured I would try it. Needless to say, I won't purchase this again.
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Naturals Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Moisturizer

I love this moisturizer! If you can get past the light smell, this product sinks right in to your skin. I don't like greasy moisturizers but this is far from that. My skin looks healthy and glowing and I can tell a difference in my skin from it. When I run out, I plan on purchasing this again! The price was around $13 dollars but if you have a Bed, Bath, and Beyond store around, you can use those coupons that they send you in the mail.
This is a gray-taupe color that doesn't have shimmer. However, I don't really have anything else to say that hasn't already been said about it. I highly recommend this product!
Mascara -Maybelline - Illegal Length Fiber Extensions

Let me just say I am a mascara junkie...and I am obsessed with having perfect lashes (or as close as I can get!) I have no problem spending $ for Lancome mascara. However, I heard about this mascara and one day decided to give it a go. This mascara works wonders! Like all the other reviews, it is strictly a lengthening macara. If you use several coats in hopes of having thicker lashes, lashes will tend to look clumpy...at least that's what it did for me. However, with an eyelash curler and a primer my eyelashes are terrific!!
This is a cool tone pinky purple sheer lipstick. Therefore I can only put this on lightly so it doesn't look too purple. This is not a long wearing lipstick as it wears off quickly. The color looks great and goes on smoothly. I would definitely repurchase this lipstick!
I am only basing this from the samples I have received. I use this at night and found that my skin is softer and "brighter" after I use it. I like the smell because it's not overly scented but has a clean fresh smell. I only wish it wasn't so expensive...which is why I'm using all my samples first
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - 20% Shea Butter Hand Cream

I have been using this product for years. My hands are always better looking with this absorbent cream. I think the smell is nice and like the fact that it is thick. I like to give my hands a mini massage with it. The only drawback is the price...the tube lasts a long time since you only need a little amount, but it's just so expensive!
I bought the smaller size of this perfume because I liked the way it smelled in the store. When that ran out I decided to purchase the 40oz one. I enjoy the fragrance as it smells sweet but not overly sweet. The only drawback is does not last all day.
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - Long Wear Cream Eyeshadow in Glacier

Since Bobbi has discontinued Navajo I needed to find another shadow to use as a primer underneath a powder eyeshadow. I decided to buy Glacier since I thought it would neutralize my lid. I liked it at the store but when I got home it was a different story. The color was white but had gold shimmer which I didn't detect at the store...possibly because of the lights. Also, it was not as creamy as the other eyeshadows and was hard to blend. Needless to say, it went right back.
I used to use the Bobbi Brown cream eyeshadow in Navajo underneath a powder eyeshadow but since then Bobbi has discontinued it. I needed something to replace it so I decided to purchase Glacier(see my other review) about this color. Anyway, Glacier did not work so I brought it back and decided to get Bone. However, Bone was out of stock. So the MA told me I would be better off using a concealer as an eye primer and save myself the $ (I did not like the UD primer) . She also said Bobbi did not intend to make these eyeshadows to use as primers but whatever. So, I took her advice and went to my local Target. I decided to purchase Maybelline Cover Up stick in Ivory. Let me tell you she was right! I would have never guessed to do this but it works just as well as her cream eyeshadows! The color Ivory looks just like Bone on my lid except I saved myself about $18.00!! Now, I don't know how it work in the summer heat but for now this is such an awesome product. Also, I use my fingers to apply it and sometimes alternate it with the Bobbi Brown cream brush. ivory
I have been using this for many years. I have found when I run out or not applied for a few days, my lashes are not as conditioned. In addition, my mascara does not apply as smoothly. I have noticed my lashes were a bit longer but nothing dramatic. I highly recommend this product!
I agree with the other reviews...save your money. I got this because it sounded promising and thought it would more natural than white eyeliner. However, this product wears off quickly. Also, I think it's important to mention that the eyeliner has shimmer in it which I found to be really unnatural looking for the inner rim. It went right back to the store.
Lip Treatments -Fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15

I found this to be an average lip balm that smells like lemon. I did not care for the packaging and the absurd price tag. I bought it thinking this would work great but it's really no different than other lip balms. I also thought it was a bit greasy.
This is a review for the newest Maybelline eyeliner. I bought mine at my local Harmon's the other day. I purchased it because I was looking for a new eyeliner and decided to give this a go. I believe they have about 6 different colors. The colors are midnight master, bold brown, vibrant violet, made of steel, coal commander, and sapphire strength. I bought the one in bold brown and so far I really like it. It has a slight gold shimmer in it which I don't mind. I have not tested to see if it is water prooof but on the packaging it says it's "creamy glide, bold color, and 24 hour wear." I usually wear liquid eyeliner on the bottom of my eyes and was looking for something different. This eyeliner stays on all day, easy to apply, and it does give a bold look as promised. It's on all day and looks the same as when it was first applied. Overall, I'm really happy I decided to buy it. I think it was around $6-7.
