Highly pigmented and beautiful color
I just got this palette as a present and just love it! You only need to use a little to get a lot of color on your brush, so be careful. Pretty good staying power without a primer. Started to crease a little bit toward the end of the day though, but honestly, every shadow does that for me without lid primer. The color selection is awesome too. I didn't think I would use all the colors, but I've found occasions for all of them, even the bright blue! I'm not sure how these shadows are "anti-aging", but looking forward to finding out.

Really like it so far
I've only been using this cream about a week, but so far it's a good basic moisturizer. I haven't noticed any disappearing wrinkles around my eyes yet, but I'll give it a chance. This cream isn't too thick, which I love. And it absorbs pretty quick, which is a must for me. But even though it's pretty light in texture, it's provides a nice even layer of moisture around my eyes. Did I mention it smells great? Not too harsh. I've been using my Anastasia eyebrow pencil in Brunette for over two years now and love it! The best brow pencil ever. So didn't hesitate to try something else made by this brand. Definitely looking forward to some good results with this one.

Seems okay so far
I've been using this mouthwash for about a week now. I had been using Listerine for a while before trying this one. Obviously, the main difference is the lack of sting (due to no alcohol in the crest rinse.) The next morning I notice that my teeth are nice and smooth, more so compared to my Listerine. But it seems to mess with my taste buds, even a full eight hours after I rinse. I suppose that means it's been working throughout the night, but my morning coffee just doesn't taste the same anymore. When I asked my dentist what brand he recommends, he simply said "any brand, as long as it contains fluoride, same goes for toothpaste...", which this product does have. After I go through this bottle, I think I'll either switch back to Listerine or start using a more natural rinse, like Tom's of Maine.

Where's the plump?
I have to agree with the one reviewer who mentioned that this lip gloss just stings a bit, but doesn't really plump. With that said, it is a really nice non-plumping lip gloss. It has good staying power. Also, I was a bit skeptical about whether all the glittery goodness that's visible through the clear tube was actually going to end up on my lips. My past experience with glittery lip gloss left much to be desired as hardly any of it actually got on my lips for some reason. And if I happened to come across one that did, the glittery pieces were so large, I looked like a teenager rather than a 30-something year old. Another good thing about this product is that it's not tested on animals. But it doesn't contain good-for-you ingredients either. All-in-all, pretty okay lip gloss.

Not so much...
Not sure why this mascara is named with such exaggeration, but it worked like an ordinary mascara. I liked the fact that it separated my lashes nicely. The wand works really well for separation. But doesnâ€™t do much as far as volumizing and lengthening. As I was on my fourth coat, I thought maybe I was doing something wrong, because I wasnâ€™t seeing a whole lot of difference. But I follow all the tricks in applying mascara, so I know it wasnâ€™t me. Also, on the matter of packaging for this product, itâ€™s a bit excessive. The cardboard tube is made of hard material capped with two plastic pieces at the ends (kind of like the stuff you ship posters or rolled up paintings in.) I do like the fact that they donâ€™t test on animals, definitely a plus. But the ingredients arenâ€™t very natural. All-in-all, ehhh, okay.

One of my favorites!
I didn't have high hopes when I tried this body wash, but man was I surprised. It left my skin soft, but not greasy. Rinsed away quickly without leaving a film. And the fragrance is just wonderful. And the price is, well, amazing for a product like this. Can't go wrong! Just wish this brand didn't do testing on animals.

I hate creams and lotions that leave a greasy film on your skin, so I was a bit skeptical about this moisturizer. But it was the only thing around in the office so I decided to give it a shot. What a pleasant surprise! It goes on and stays non-greasy but still makes my hands nice and soft for the whole day. No need to reapply after washing my hands. Great stuff.

Where has this product been all my life?
Simply awesome! I've used dozens of products for my naturally curly hair, which is usually just frizzy and icky looking without any products in it. With products in it, it either ended up weighed down, greasy, no difference at all, or sticky/crunchy/wet look (which I can't stand). Yesterday I read some good reviews regarding PM's Round Trip so decided to grab one on my way home. Tried it for the first time this morning after washing my hair, on damp hair, and wow... It's exactly what I've been looking for. Truly defined my curls without leaving it in a perpetual "wet" but crunchy look. By far one of the best products I've tried in a very long time. Thanks Total Beauty for connecting me to this miracle of a product.
