Let me start with all the positives: this is an absolutely beautiful, rich deep purple color. And yes, I love purple - even my car is purple. I LOVE the fact that it's a pencil - so incredibly easy to apply. With this, I can apply inside the lines!

I dropped a lippie for two reasons - at this price point, I think it could have better staying power, and two, I wish it were a bit …

Eye Primer - Smashbox - Photo Finish Lid Primer

This came as part of Smashbox's Eye Wish Palette. I have uneven discoloration on my eyelids - and only after two layers did this come close to doing anything about that. I did notice that my eyeshadow creases less with this product, but it doesn't do enough in my book for me to go out and by this product on its own.

I have hereditary dark circles that never go away, but do get worse with lack of sleep (sometimes so bad they look like black eyes!). Needless to say, I was always looking for a concealer, sometimes layering on more than one. that has stopped!! I only use this one concealer and it works miracles. First, I let my moisturizer sink in, then apply a small amount of concealer to my dark circles …Read more

OK, the scent on this can be a bit annoying when you first put the foundation on but I find that it does disappear after a while. It is defintely a lot less coverage than I am used to but is a perfect fit for my skin tone. This is great for when my skin isn't acting up in summer. I do find that this is easy to blend and doesn't streak. Also, doesn't melt off in Sacramento heat.

I got this as part of the summer 2006 collection - it was actually one of the main reasons I bought the collection. It's a great purple/lavendar with a silver frost to it. It seems a lot more frosty in the bottle than it did once it was on. It went on smoothly - lasted two weeks on toes. A definite repurchase.

I got a small size of this as part of the Essie Summer 2006 collection. It is a red-coral color - definitely not for the faint of heart. I am going to be using this on toes only. Two coats was perfect. There was no streaking. Great for summer - or on winter days when you want to perk yourself up.

I am a huge fan of Lancome's bifacil but decided to try something new that was less expensive. I am a convert to Sonia Kashuk's Remove. It doesn't leave that residue that Lancome does and it does a great job of removing all my makeup. This has the added of being half the price of the Lancome product.

I found this product extremely difficult to work with - it just would not go on evenly. I tried foundation brushes, the LM sponge, fingers - it just was too thick to spread on evenly. I do prefer heavier coverage so that was a plus but I just don't have patience to keep trying to get this on smoothly.

This does a good job of lengthening lashes - but does absolutely nothing to plump up the lashes. It does not look attractive to have scary long thin lashes - especially when I can't get the clumps out at the end. I will keep looking for a good, cheap mascara.
