I bought this on sale online at Sephora for three dollars(although I believe the original price is $9), and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this product! I got the shade "Donutella" which, more or less, matches the color of my lips. The balm, which has a nice fruity scent, is more moisturizing than many others are, and the color stays on your lips for a couple of hours. If you are looking for a rich, deep color, this is probably not for you because it tends to give a more natural look. I probably wouldn't buy again at $9 - would probably go for Revlon's balm stains instead - but I would repurchase again on sale for casual use.
I bought this clarifying lotion with a Clinique face wash and lotion. I was told that it was a 3-step process to be done 2x a day, and that this was less drying than most other exfoliants. Unfortunately, this was not true. After a few days of using these products together, once in the morning and once at night, my combination skin had blotches of dry spots and was red in parts. After I stopped using this clarifying lotion, my skin was dramatically less dry.

I have fallen in love with the Revlon balm stains! They don't dry your lips and stain your lips for a good 5-6 hours. This Crush color kind of scared me at first, but it's actually quite a good wine color when you try it on. Out of the balm stains I have, Crush is the one that lasts the longest, probably because its one of the darker shades. I also love how easy these are to apply and how affordable they are!
This is probably my favorite moisturizer because it really does hydrate your skin and brighten up your face. I have combination skin, and I was using the Clinique line before I started using this, and I had to apply moisturizer a few times a day because my skin was so dry. My skin also was not that clear. Yet, when I switched over I only had to apply moisturizer in the morning and I was good for the whole day. It really does make your skin 'glow.' Although you don't really get a lot of product, a little bit of this cream really does go a long way. I use this with the Korres face wash as well, and both work wonders for my skin.
The rose color for this lip balm is not too pigmented, but not too sheer. It is also a very nice, neutral color to wear during the day. The lip balm itself is very moisturizing. Overall I was pretty satisfied with the product, but I think that the price is a little higher than it should be.

The scent of this body cream is delicious! Not only that, but it moisturizes very well, and the scent stays all day long. It is a little pricey, so I don't use it everyday, but it is definitely one of the better body creams that I have tried.

This is definitely the best fragrance that I have tried. The scent is unique, and it usually lasts me the whole day. My only qualm is that it is a little pricey, but it definitely is worth it.

I bought this product in the summertime because I was developing light and dark patches on my face. My face had been mostly clear before then, so I had never really tried any foundation before or anything. I was really impressed by this product. It matched my skin tone very well, it provided good coverage and looked natural. Also, by the end of the day, it didn't really move at all. I would recommend this product for anyone who has uneven skin tone and is looking for something that will give them light coverage.
I have to say that I love pencil eyeliners. They just glide on very easily and smoothly, but the problem is that they smear. This is why I was reluctant to try this product, but I love it. It doesn't smear like the pencil eyeliners I have used. Of course, it fades away during the day, but not significantly. I recommend this product to anyone who uses eyeliner during the day, because it really does stay on!
Eyeliner -Laura Mercier - Black Violet kohl pencil

I have been using this eyeliner for a while, and although this eyeliner goes on smooth and looks amazing when you put it on as well as during the first couple hours, it smudges extremely fast. By the end of the day, my eyeliner would usually be all over the place. I think this is well worth the money for special occasions because it really does look nice, but it's definitely not an eyeliner I would use for everyday wear because it just doesn't stay.
