Makeup gets me super amped, but I have to admit that eyeliner falls on the low end of my Richter scale. Do I love it and wear it all the time? Sure. But the product itself never really excites me... ...that is until I found Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil. What's so special about these puppies, you might ask? Well, first of all, the formula is super creamy and glideable--I mean, it practically glides over skin like butter. The colors show up just as you'd wish them to--vivid and with visible metallic/shimmer (for colors that have those finishes). And for the win, the waterproof formula lasts all day without smearing (so no little half moons on your eyelids). Right now, I'm obsessed with Underground, a metallic taupe, that looks oh-so pretty with soft pink cheeks and lips, and Ransom, an irridescent purple that looks rockin' with nude lips.

Skin looks younger!
Estee has done it again! Her new Nutritious Vita-Mineral Makeup SPF 10 is, in a word, superb. Packed with minerals to help protect skin, Vitamins C and E to help improve skin's overall condition and maintain its healthy radiance and Pomegranate extract, an ultra-potent antioxidant to ward off free-radicals, this foundation is good for skin and makes skin look really good. Smoothing this light-to-medium coverage creamy formula over skin is so delightful--it's not runny like a liquid, nor dusty like a powder--it's just pure creamy perfection. The resulting effect? Youthful, dewy, healthy, natural-looking skin that looks energized and radiant. Seriously, when I put this foundation on, my skin seems to roll back a decade into my teen years, and while I think girls of all ages will love the youthful glow it gives, I think women in their 30s and beyond will especially appreciate it. This foundation works great on my combination skin, and I think it would work well for all skin types except very oily. With a touch of setting powder, this oil-free foundation stays looking great and in place for hours.

I'll take another round!
When it comes to cocktails, my modus operandi is Bacardi and Diet Coke, but with LORAC Mocktail lip gloss, I'm all about Sex on the Beach. Super smooth and super shiny, this fuschia fruit-flavored lip gloss is the stuff dreams are made of. It glazes lips in the perfect shade of transparent pink. (Don't be fooled by its uber-bright appearance in the tube--it shows up as much more of a sedated fuschia). The formula is amazingly non-sticky, yet stays on the lips--a feat nearly impossible in the lip gloss world. The squeeze tube with the built-in brush dispenses fresh gloss with precision and ease. Although this isn't a plumping gloss, it somehow it makes lips look extra lush and juicy. Mocktails are available in ten shades, which means I may need to start a tab!

I want it in every color!
Every girl has a stash of one (or six) lipglosses in her purse at all times. Lâ€™Oreal HiP Jelly Balm in Ripe has earned permanent residency in my bag. Drenching lips in smooth, sexy shine, this product makes lips look juicy, and well, ripe. The consistency of the balm is like nothing I've ever felt before. Not waxy, heavy or sticky, it almost feels bouncy if that makes any sense. A tint of color and a lush, moisturized feel is all this balm leaves behind. Plus, it smells like vanilla frosting, which, do I even have to say it, totally works for me.

Makes skin silky and protects!
You should always at least wear sunscreen on your face, and with moisturizers containing sunscreen, it's so easy you have no reason not to! DDF Protect and Correct UV Moisturizer SPF 15 combats discoloration with its Micro-Radiance Complex and protects against future damage with broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreens. I can't say that I've noticed an improvement in my skin tone, however, luckily I don't have any discoloration/sun damage on my face to begin with. But man, does this moisturizer make my skin feel soft! One pea-sized drop of this product is all it takes to nourish and condition my entire face. Afterwards, my skin feels so silky and thoroughly hydrated. Plus, this product provides me with the requisite SPF 15 needed to safely face the day and protect me from getting sun damage in the first place. This moisturizer may not be light enough for those with oily skin, but for all others, this product would be a good pick. I would especially recommend this product to those who are combating existing sun damage on their face, or have more mature skin.

Try using this as your regular conditioner
I have the regular conditioner and this conditioning treatment, and you can definitely tell that the treatment delivers more shine, softness and moisture. I ended up just using the treatment as my normal conditioner though, because the conditioner wasn't moisturizing enough for my dry hair. This treatment didn't leave me with any buildup, and it smells good. Overall it's decent, but nothing magnificent.

This conditioner is good, but it doesn't rock my world. It smells good and doesn't weigh my hair down, but it doesn't deliver the level of shine or softness I was expecting with a product called "nutri gloss." I'd say this product would be good for those with normal hair, but if you have dry/damaged hair, it's not going to moisturize enough.

The Daily Treatment Serum Concentrate claims to work deep within skin's surface to help promote elasticity and boost collagen, and, on the surface layer, to rid fine lines and hydrate. While I'm skeptical as to how deep this serum actually goes, whatever it's doing, I like it a lot. This serum has definitely evened my skin tone, which has always been my main concern. It didn't take long to see these results, either--just a few days. My skin looks bright and even, and feels healthy and hydrated. I would even say that yes, my skin is more elastic. Plus, just using the serum and foregoing any anti-acne treatments has kept me break-out free.

The Daily Moisturizer Oil Free Lotion is phenomenal. It claims to provide the same skin strengthening, anti-aging benefits as the serum, most likely in a less potent mix, but with extra moisture. With a pearlescent-looking formula, this lotion brightens skin instantly. The texture of this lotion is silky and light, but very hydrating. The oil-free formula absorbs wonderfully to leave skin smooth and soft, not greasy. It's perfect to use before a makeup application. The only thing this lotion is missing is SPF.
