Like others, I wanted a daily body moisturizer with a little bit of sunscreen to protect me when walking around outside. Overall the pump is easy to use, the smell doesn't bother me and it does seem to moisturize fairly well. Unfortunately it just does absorb into my skin; it's so bad that when my fiancé touched my arm he actually recoiled because he said it felt so greasy--definitely not something you want to hear. Looks like I'm still on a search to find a quality product...
Styling Products -Unlisted Brand - Umberto Beverly Hills Blow Dry Lotion

Overall I thought this product was okay. It did make my hair soft and it has a nice scent to it. Unfortunately, I felt like it weighed my hair down and could still feel remnants of product in my hair after I blow-dried. I do have straight fine hair so it may be that this just isn't meant for my hair type.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

I am so glad that they finally changed the packaging! The old tube and wand was more aesthetically pleasing, but quite impractical when it came to finishing up the product. I used to have to use an x-acto knife to slice it open and scoop it out once I used 3/4 of it. Anyway I also decided to try out the Eden version and love it even more than the original. I give it 5 stars because Primer Potion seems to make my eyeshadows appear more vibrant and lasts at least 8 hours without creasing.
Tinted Moisturizer -Tarte - Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Tinted Moisturizer

I really like this tinted moisturizer as a light foundation, but I don't like how I always have to apply a moisturizer before using this because it is somewhat drying for me. It's not that much of a pain, but I thought that the point of buying a tinted moisturizer was to skip using a separate step. The coverage is nice, Agent 00 matches my skin flawlessly and it works well with my Makeup Forever concealer. Overall I'd give this 5 stars if it felt a little more moisturizing or was cheaper in price.
Concealers -Make Up For Ever - Full Cover Concealer

I love this concealer! I don't think words can quite possibly describe how much this has helped cover my under-eye circles and blemishes. Like other reviewers have said this tube lasts for years even with daily use (which is awesome considering the steep price tag!) I am quite pale and find that the number 2 shade fits my skin tone pretty well. Although it can show up a bit light especially on top of pimples so I always make sure to apply a little foundation or powder over it. Once I finally run out of my current tube I cannot imagine trying out any other brand!
This may not be the most moisturizer lip balm, but it's my favorite. I love the scent and the tingly feeling it leaves on my lips. I've tried switching to other brands of lip balms when I run out and can't instantly buy it, but I always seem to return to using Burt's Bees. As long as this product is still being made, I don't plan on abandoning it anytime soon.
Misc Beauty Tools -Clean & Clear - Oil Absorbing Sheets

I absolutely love these sheets! My skin can get pretty oily throughout the day so I just use one of the sheets to blot my t-zone instead of caking on powder. I've never had them remove any of the makeup on my skin either. I always make sure to carry a pack in my purse!
Treatments -Sephora - nourishing cuticle oil - pen

I love this stuff! I carry it in my purse and like to use it during work when my hands start to dry out. It's very easy to use and there's no mess. I like that I can control the amount of oil that is dispensed through the applicator. The smell is a little strong, but it only lasts a moment. I have been using the Sephora cuticle oil pen for about 4 years now and unlike other products, I still haven't gotten tired of it.
Top/Base Coats -Borghese - Magnetico Adhesive Base Coat

I bought this at Ulta several months ago after reading a few store reviews. I don't know why I kept using this for so long. It did not help my polish last longer at all. After 2-3 days the entire polish would just pop off of my nail while doing daily activities. I'd rather have a few minor chips than random naked nails. I gave it a 2 because it did at least prevent my nail from being stained from other polishes.
