Gorgeous, a little hard to apply at first
I think all of the Bare Escantuals eye shadows are absolutely gorgeous. They are rich, highly pigmented eye shadows that look the same on your eye as they do in the container. They're a little hard to apply - less is more. I start with a VERY light layer and add more if I want a more dramatic look.

Works well, like the lip plumper more than the exfoliator though
This product is a glossy sheer "plumping" lip color on one side and a sugar exfoliator on the other. The lip color is very minty, which is nice, but I don't think it plumps all that much. Just a tasty, pretty color. The exfoliator has big crystals of sugar (like you poured a pack of that Raw Sugar on a lip baml), which does the trick but it's a bit strange to smear sugar on your lips. Best part is you can taste the sugar! Overall, this is a fun product - not life changing, but definitely worth trying if you want to smooth your lips and add some minty gloss.

Scent is amazing
This is an over-all fabulous shower gel. The scent is super rich anad heavenly, and the gel makes lots of bubbles but still leaves your skin lightly moisturized and lightly scented. Definitely worth it.

This is the most amazing rich, sophisticated vanilla scent EVER. The body butter is so-so. I find it sits on my skin and makes it a little greasy rather than absorbing in like a regular lotion. I feel like it doesn't hydrate my skin that well either... but it still smells amazing so I use it anyway. The bath gel is awesome too!

This is an amazing moisturizer. It's the thickest, most moisturizing cream I've ever used. My dermatologist told me to use it at night around my eyes, and it's done wonders! It looks a little shiny on my face (that's why I only use it at night), but in the morning, the skin around my eyes looks nice and healthy, no fine lines! Love it!

I put this primer on under my JI mineral foundation, in order to stop shine. It works to a certain extent - I have to blot by lunchtime. The issue is that when you apply it, it's sticky. When you apply powder mineral foundation over the sticky primer, it clumps and makes the foundation look a little "off." It's better if you wait for it to dry.

These pads contain both glycolic acid (10%) and salicylic acid (2%), whihc I believe is the max amount for both ingredients in OTC skin care. When I use these pads, my pores look smaller and I don't have any breakouts - they're great! The only watch-out is that they are a bit drying to the face, especially when used in combination with the rest of the PTR products that contain glycolic acid. Therefore, I only use them ~2 times per week.

Better than the $$$$$ ones!
I've been using this moisturizer for about 6 months now, and my skin looks fantastic. I have combination skin that's dry but shiny with some blemishes. I've tried everything... from high end (Creme De La Mer, Chanel, Peter Thomas Roth, Bliss, and so on) to drugstore (Clean & Clear, Neutrogena, Biore, etc), and this is the CLEAR winner. It's a great value, and I've never felt better about how I look.

Essie has a great color selection, and I like the consistency, which seems a little thicker than OPI polish. However, the quality seems about the same as any other nail polish I've tried. On my nails, it only lasts a few days before chipping off.

I tried this product on the recommendation of an esthetician at Bliss Spa in L.A.. She said that my combination skin, while oily, was actually dehyrated, and the hyaluronic acid in this product would help hydrate it. I use this under my night moisturizer and it seems to help. I wouldn't use it alone, as it wouldn't be moisturizing enough. My skin looked better after a couple of weeks of using it.
