I'm mixed on this product because I had been using Amazing Concealer and it worked very well (but too expensive). The reviews caused me to want to give Rimmel a try. I'd give it 3.5 if I could because if you have dark circles, I don't know that this will do the job. It works ok for me but I would still like to find something more pigmented. The price is reasonable but the applicator is a bit odd.
I was looking for a new pink lipstick and decided to try Maybelline Color Sensational because of the overall reviews. First I bought the Pink Me Up because I wanted something subtle. I like the color but also wanted to try one that was a bit darker. I bought Hooked On Pink and I like it too. If you're pale, these are nice pinks. My next one will be Pinkalicious because it looks like it would be a nice pink too.

Hi~ Despite some of the reviews, I didn't have a problem with this polish. I should say that I'm not a "nail polish" person and just bought this on a lark. The price is cheap and the mini size gives you a chance to decide if it's worth buying again. The color I bought is called (TTFN) and is kinda cool and different. It doesn't look the same online as it does in person - it's a cross between green and blue. I've had it on for a week, used only one coat, it still looks good and I've had several compliments on it. I only used it on my toes...

I saw these at Sally Beauty and decided to try the grey purple. I liked it so much that I went back to get several different colors. Quite a bargain at .99 each and the color lasts.
Toners -Thayers - Rose Petal Alcohol Free Witch Hazel

I was looking for something to use as a base for a diy glycolic serum. I ran across the reviews on here and decided to try this particular witch hazel because I like the idea of alcohol free, rosewater and aloe vera. The smell doesn't bother me at all and it's not drying. I just add my glycolic crystals, shake well and keep it in a dark brown glass bottle with a stopper. It's a bit runnier than I'd like, but you just have to get used to it. I've decided to try this as a base for my diy vitamic C serum/toner. I'm using a MAP and ascorbic acid combo to see how it works. If it doesn't break me out, I think it will work fine. I'm still in the testing phase and will update when I've given it a few weeks.
I love this powder and have used it for years (in translucent). When I bought it several months ago, it seemed different. They've added something that gives the skin a bit of a glow. I don't mind it, but it may not be for everyone. Still, it's the best powder I've ever used and it's very reasonable. I prefer to use a sponge powder puff instead of the one that comes with it.
I had noticed this blush when I was in Sally's, but didn't buy it until I read the reviews. This is perfect for pale complexions and doesn't have any weird undertones like so many that are out there. The price is reasonable and the sale at Ulta made me want to try it even more. This is my new favorite blush:)
Hi, I'm fair skinned and always have dark circles. I've never been totally satisfied with any of the concealers I've used. I went into Ulta last week and asked for some suggestions. This particular one was recommended and she demonstrated it on herself. It did a good job, so I decided to give it a try since it was on sale ($28 for two). I must say that it is the best one I've used so far. It's actually weird to look at my face and not see circles:o I do put a bit of extra moisturizer under my eyes before I use it. You need to get it in the right place, as it sets up quickly. I use my fingers because I don't want to waste any product (though I've been used to using the wand type of concealer). I've found that less is more and it just takes a little bit. I bought it in the "fair" shade and it matches my skin nicely.
I have tried many permanent hair color products and like the Ion Color Brilliance the best. It makes my long hair very shiny and doesn't stain my skin like the others. I prefer the liquid to the creme because it's easier than squeezing a tube. I also bought their Sensitive Scalp Creme Developer and it seems more gentle than the standard ones. I use the light brown shade and also add a product called Ardell Gray Magic Color Additive because I have prematurely gray hair that is very resistant to hair color. I have not tried the Color Brilliance by itself, though they say it is supposed to give flawless gray coverage.
