did nothing for my lashes
I am a big fan of Loreal, but I found that this Lash Boosting serum did nothing at all for me. After using it for almost eight weeks I saw no difference in the length of my lashes or in the number of lashes I had or in the amount of lashes that fall out naturally. I found it a little awkward to use the applicator. It's got a huge curve to it that made applying the serum to the under side of the upper lashes as easy as applying mascara. But applying the serum to the top side of the upper lashes required a little more effort and a learning curve. I had to find the best angle and the best portion of the applicator to use. The lower lashes were very easy to apply to. I occasionally got a little of the serum in my eyes and there was almost no irritation at all and what little there was went away in less than a minute. I didn't use the lash boost with mascara. I found that it made mascara go on extremely clumpy and I ended up looking like I had just a few lashes because they were all stuck together.

strengthens nails and looks like a french manicure!
This is one amazing product! I have struggled with peeling nails that would never grow forever. This product strengthens my nails to the point that I now I have to trim my nails because they get TOO long!! What a nice problem! ;-) My nails are stronger than they've ever been, they very rarely peel at all and look better than ever. This product has a very strange pink hue in the bottle and with one coat it makes my nails look like I've had a professional do a french manicure on my nails. It brightens and whitens the tips and makes the pink beds of my nails look super rosey and healthy. I don't know how it does it, but it's amazing! It's $29 plus $5.22 shipping on QVC.com. I know that seems a little expensive for a nail product, but considering what it does, it's worth it to me. It not only improves my nails, but it's also a french manicure in a bottle, so I figure the cost is worth the benefits!

Honeysuckle smells like the REAL thing
I love B&BW Body Washes in many fragrances. But the Honeysuckle has become one of my favorites! I remember picking wild Honeysuckle when I was a little girl and the scent that Bath and Body works has created brings me back in time. It's sweet, natural and just pefect!

Makes skin look terrible
I am not a fan of BE makeup. The foundation is too shimmery for me. Makes my skin look terrible - makes my pores look HUGE and lines and wrinkles more pronounced. Plus, it makes my skin itch so bad (especially in warm weather) that I can't wait to get it off. I've found other mineral makeup that I love, so it's not a mineral makeup thing - it's just that Bare Essentials isn't for me. Thankfully there are tons of brands out there so we can all find what works with our wants and needs.

So amazing I can't stop raving about it!
Ohhh have I found a new mascara that I am completely in love with!! It's Chanel's Exceptionnel De Chanel Intense Volume and Curl mascara. I'll warn you upfront... it's pricey ($28 EEKK!!). But holy cow is this stuff amazing!! It's got this odd brush - it's four sided and one side is a brush, then a comb, then a brush, then a comb. The results this mascara gives me are the most amazing lashes! SUPER long, thick, and I don't think I could get it to clump if I tried to. I've used other mascara's that say they curl your lashes, but I never noticed any type of real curl. With this Chanel mascara, my lashes are so curled up and that makes them look so much longer. It doesn't budge all day and still looks perfect after 8-10 hours. One coat is phenomenal - two coats, it's like I've put on false lashes!!! I was lucky enough to get a sample tube of this, or else I would have never even tried it. $28.00 is not what I would usually consider paying for mascara. But I can't not have this product! Seriously, I used another mascara that I love today instead of the Chanel and my lashes looked so puny. So I guess I'm going to have to shell out $28 for mascara from now on... Shhhh! Don't tell my hubby

Best exfoliator ever!
I love scrubs and this is by far my favorite! The "grains" are very smooth, so it doesn't scratch up your skin. Leaves my skin extremely soft, but never red or irritated.

very natural looking
I bought this when Mirnesse was offering several of their full size products for free (pay $8.97 s&h) and thought it would be a great way to try this foundation. Well now I'm hooked! It gives a beautiful natural finish - not too matte, but not shimmery at all. Very easy to apply because of the little puff on the container. Not sure if I'm willing to pay over $45 for this foundation though - not sure it's that amazing. But it is a very nice product.

smells soooo good!
This is the best smelling shower creme ever! It smells exactly like chocolate cake frosting! It's very hydrating to the skin and you get a ton of lather from a very small amount. The smell isn't too sweet and doesn't linger on the skin for very long so it won't interfer with fragrances. All around great shower creme!

This is one of the best brands of makeup brushes out there! The prices are very resonable and the quality is fantastic. The bristles are soft, well packed and there's very little if any shedding. I'm so thrilled I can now buy very high quality makeup tools without spending a fortune. One of the best things that Target carries is this line!

While this eyeshadow may be a little more expensive, it's definately worth it. And you'll use less, so in the long wrong it lasts longer and you really haven't spent much more. The colors are beautiful and they blend easily. Smashbox has done an excellent job of combining three colors that work extremely well together - but that are equally stunning on their own. I have found that some shades are a little darker when you actually apply them than they look in the pan, but again they blend so beautifully that you can't go wrong.
