Pardon the pun, but I "love to love" these shades! My skin is a tad too light to do a normal smokey eye (I achieve the dreaded raccoon eye), so I just use these colors and do a make-shift brown smokey eye which looks gorgeous. The price is a little more expensive than MAC's normal shadows, but since you get 3 shades in one container, I figure I'm saving money. I find that with the proper primer, these shades will last on me all day long and are subtle enough to wear everyday. Not sure if MAC is continuing this or not, but if they are then I will definetly buy again!
Toners -Clean & Clear - Deep Cleaning Astringent (orange)

It REALLY gets all the crap (oils, dirt, etc.) off your face. Unfortunately for me it just dries the crap out of my face. I find myself having to use a moisturizer immediately after this otherwise my skin dries up and flakes off! Also it has a tendancy to turn my face bright red after use so I only use it before I go to bed. Would recommend to someone with very oily skin, however I will look for something a little gentler next time.
Man I love this stuff. It is absolutely amazing, I'm on my 3rd bottle. Only thing I hate about it is the price. I spent $18 for a 4fl bottle, but that just goes to show how good it is if I'm willing to do that (three times!). It leaves my hair shiney and silky soft, and I love the scent (though it may be overpowering for some). I always get compliments on my hair when using this product and I definetly recommend it!
Eye Makeup Remover -Neutrogena - Oil Free eye makeup remover

Well first of all, it does do the job. This stuff will get off stubborn eye makeup. That being said, there were multiple things I also don't about this product. First of all, I have a VERY hard time believing that it is "oil-free" The residue it leaves is disgusting, and hard to get off. Never thought i'd need a "remover" for my eye makeup remover. Also I can't tell you how many times i've knocked this stuff over...the packaging needs to be remodeled thats for sure. I'll finish this stuff up though since I spent good money on it, but after that good riddance.
This stuff sucks, theres no doubt about it. I grabbed it while I was at wal-mart, hoping that it may do SOMETHING to my dry-frizzy hair. Alas, I found that it was sticky and weighed down my hair instead (so bummed). After using a straightener I saw no difference whatsoever. I will give it credit for its unique spray handle though, perhaps the only thing I liked about this product. Will use up the remainder, but will not buy again.
