This is my favorite eye shadow set yet! I tend to not look good in bright or colored eye shadows, so this set jumped out to me at Sephora. I can honestly say that all of the colors are usable, and can be used and experimented with eachother so easily! I like to sweep the light brown shade in the middle of the package over my lids and blend in the sparkely dark brown in the bottom right of the package into the outside corners of my eyes and fade it into the center of my lid. I also like to use a larger metallic brown chubby eyeshadow and lightly blend that right above my lashline on the upper lid and then follow with espresso colored eyeliner and Diorshow mascara. These shadows can easily be taken into the nightime and are highly pigmented and blend easily. This is a must have for ladies who love neutrals. You won't be disappointed!
This moisterizer is definitely one of the best I've tried. I have combination skin, and am not too oily, and this has actually worked out pretty well for me. Before using this, I had Clinique's Dramatically Different Gel Moisterizer, and it was just all right, but I wanted to experiment and find a better one. This moisterizer is extremely light, and leaves my skin feeling soft. I would not suggest it for people with mostly dry skin, because it definitely is not sufficient in moisterizing the dry areas of my face. However, because I occasionally break out, this moisterizer is great at not making me break out more or creating the dreaded oily/greasy look in those areas. In general, this is a good buy for people with generally oily or acneic skin. I probably would purchase this again, but with another toner or treatment rather than the gel that came with the kit I bought.

I was pretty skeptical when I saw this, but it turned out to not be half bad. The small pads are not that great, but the large ones actually worked. I'm not sure if these pads would work for everyone else, but if they don't, they still do make your legs really smooth. But I would not reccomend this if you don't like your legs chalky or white (it doesn't show up that much) but overall, this was pretty good.

I love these soooooo much!!! I still can't believe they were put on the top picks. I don't like how they take off my makeup though <33333

This would have to be one of my favorite eye shadows. The color comes on easily and lasts a long time, and looks amazing if you wet your brush before applying it. The only complaint I have about it is that it goes all over the place (this may just be me, as I have small eye lids) But this only happens if you don't wet your brush. I also use this on top of my lip gloss in Rumor from Victorias Secret with an angled eye shadow brush, and it also looks lovely on top of red lips too. Will definately purchase again.
I was extremly excited to get this product when I saw it, as I've never seen eyeshadow esspecially for green-eyed people. However, I was disappointed. The colors were gorgeous, but when I applied the first two, you could barely see them. I will be returning this as soon as I can, and I would not reccomend this.
Very drying to my lashes, and came on very clumpy, esspecially at the top of the wand, and made my lashes go all over the place. I wouldn't reccomend this, and the wand also isn't very sturdy, as it broke in a few days. The packaging leaked in my bag, which doesn't carry much around. I personally like Elizabeth Arden Double Density mascara.
I really was happy to get this product, because I absolutley hate razors, but I was slightly disappointedwith it. First, the packaging was fine, but the little scraper tool wouldn't come undone from the bottle, and the product would clog my sink. I also got a rash from using it and was just very disappointed. The outcome of using this product was a bad rash, and after testing (as instructed) a patch of hair after three minutes, and it wasn't ready, so I waited for a total of six minutes and scraped it off, and found virtually all of my hair intact after scraping hard, and it was coarse and after showering, my arms smelt for three days. Would not buy again. I personally love the moisterising formula in the pump bottle. Works every time perfectly.
