  • Hard Candy Walk the Line Eye Liner

    I have this product in asphalt, which is a very dark, solid black color. It dries fast, doesn't smudge, and lasts all day. I've read many things saying it's not waterproof, but the color I have does NOT come off with a little water. In fact, it doesn't budge with water. I have to use baby oil to successfully remove it. I'm used to using felt tipped liquid eyeliner because brushes tend to find me making a mess of myself, but the brush on this is very high quality and exceptionally precise so much so that it's the first brush eyeliner I've ever been able to use without getting it everywhere!!! I give it 9 stars and highly recommend (I'd give it 10 if it had a felt tip). EDIT: After using this occasionally for a few months, I've discovered it can be removed more easily now. It still dries fast and doesn't fade or smudge, it's just easier to remove now, Odd, but a welcomed change!!!

  • Burt's Bees Honey Lip Balm

    Burt's Bees Honey Lip Balm

    The smell is HORRIBLE!!!

    I can't tell you how moisturizing this is or how long it lasts because the second I put it on I had to take it off because the smell--the yucky, horrible smell--was completely overwhelming and disgusted me. I was actually naive enough to assume this would smell like honey. Oh, was I wrong, wrong, wrong! I'd say it smells kind of like extremely potent baby powder, except baby powder (which I'm not particularly a fan of the smell of it) smells much better than this!!! Ew!!!

  • Hard Candy Lip Tattoo Lip Stain and Gloss

    I have this in Princess, which is a very gorgeous baby pink color (which is saying something because I usually dislike the color pink in general). The color doesn't last as long as I'd like and I wish it wasn't quite so sheer, but it is very beautiful and I adore the minty flavor and tingly sensation of the gloss. In all honesty, it feels a lot like a lip plumper and actually seemed to plump my lips a bit. For the price, it's definitely worth trying.

  • Hard Candy Painted Lady Lipstick

    Hard Candy Painted Lady Lipstick

    I love this lipstick!!!

    This is the most wonderful lipstick I've ever had and the colors are gorgeous! It goes on smooth and creamy, lasts a decent amount of time for a lipstick that doesn't totally dry out your lips, and doesn't come off quite as easily as other brands which rocks because I hate getting lipstick thickly all over everything I touch with my mouth. Ten stars and I highly recommend! Here's hoping they add even more color choices soon because I can't get enough of this!

    Hard Candy Ginormous Mascara

    Best Mascara I've Ever Used!!!

    I don't understand why this mascara doesn't get 9 to 10 stars across the board!!! It's definitely the best mascara I've ever used. I have it in Black Out, which is a very, very dark black. It lengthens very well, doesn't take forever to dry, and dries very soft, If you want a natural look, only apply one coat. If you want volume, simply apply multiple coats (it may take many, but it works!). Also, I've tried tons of mascaras over the years and this is the first one I've ever used that did not clump at all, which is amazing to be able to say. Aside from that, it's not completely waterproof (which it doesn't claim to be), but I still highly recommend it and hope Hard Candy comes out with a waterproof version soon because this product rocks!!!

  • Hard Candy Plumping Serum
    10.0

    Hard Candy Plumping Serum

    Wow!!! It's the best lipgloss ever!!!

    I've never been a big fan of lipgloss, but this is amazing! I love the way it feels on my lips! It does actually plump them a little, but even if it didn't this would still be my fave! I have it in Girl Next Door, which is a very pretty light pink color. The color is sheer (it is a lipgloss after all), but it's noticeable and since it's not as thick and colored as lipstick I find myself getting kisses even though I'm wearing it (usually men tend to back off when they see lip color). Best of all, it doesn't taste nasty at all and smells a lot like sugar cookies (one person said cherries! LOL)!!! I love it!!! I can't say enough good things about this product and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes lipgloss (and even some who usually don't)!!!!!!!!!

  • Lubriderm Advanced Therapy Moisturizing Lotion

    My skin and especially my hands get very, very dry and chapped, mainly in winter. This product is my savior. It never fails me! Even when my hands are chapped, cracked, and sore it goes to work right away and makes them instantly feel so much better and heal quickly. I'd recommend this to everyone for super dry skin. Applying it elsewhere right after a shower is wonderful too as it makes skin so soft and silky smooth! 10 stars!!!

  • Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream

    The price is inexpensive and the results are priceless. My face is normally combination/very oily and using moisturizer ion it at all has always been a bad idea, especially since many moisturizers tend to make acne worse and I suffer from adult acne. Imagine my surprise when my doctor prescribed me a prescription adult acne fighting medicine to use overnight that utterly dries out your face beyond belief and told me to buy this-a moisturizer-and to use it every day after I shower in the morning! I was nervous at first, but words cannot express how wonderful this is! The moisturizing effects last all day, it doesn't clog pores, it's not oily or greasy, and skin looks so healthy and vibrant from using it! I'd recommend this to everyone who needs moisturizer, especially on their face.

  • Revlon Colorstay 12 Hour Eye Shadow Quad
    8.0

    Revlon Colorstay 12 Hour Eye Shadow Quad

    Great for the money, but not the best.

    This eyeshadow is a great buy for the price. Goes on smooth, looks gorgeous, and lasts. However, it DOES CREASE after several hours, though creasing is minimal. I've never tried it with a primer. Perhaps a good primer would make it perfect.

  • CoverGirl Ultimate Finish Liquid Powder Makeup

    When you first apply it, it looks fantastic, but not long thereafter (maybe as soon as five or ten minutes) it looks cakey, ultra powdery, and downright bad. Covering acne with this is definitely not the way to go if you want to hide the pimples because it'll make them more obvious as it cakes up around them and, I daresay, it may clog pores making acne even worse. If you are desperate for an under eye concealer, it works OKAY for that in a pinch, but only OKAY and only for that. I would not recommend this product to anyone. I admit, I thought it was awesome 15 years ago when I was a tween, but I didn't know any better back then! Save your money and don't buy this!
