    Olay Total Effects Wet Cleansing Cloths

    Even removes my eye makeup!

    This cloth is wonderful. Takes all of my makeup off (even mascara) and leaves my skin clean. No tight or dry feeling and my sensitive skin is not red and itchy afterwards.

  • Revlon Fantasy Lengths Maximum Wear Glue-On Eyelashes

    Revlon Fantasy Lengths Maximum Wear Glue-On Eyelashes

    Beautiful lashes for day time looks.

    I wear false eyelashes almost every day and these are affordable and natural looking. I am not a fan of the glue that comes in the kit, but the lashes are lovely. I've even bought a pair and cut about 1/3 from the outside edge and used them just on the outer edge of my lashline for a beautiful "cat eye" look that does not go over the top. Can be used multiple times if cared for correctly.

  • L'Oreal Paris HiP Studio Secrets Professional Shocking Shadow Pigments

    This is an amazing pigment and an even more amazing price. Lots of color pay-off when applied dry on a nude base and even more vibrant applied wet. Since it is a duo-chrome color if you apply it on a dark/black base you see more of the secondary color (like green in Intrepid) so it's like getting two colors for the price of one. Although I prefer long-handled brushes, the brush that comes with it is densely packed so it's great for applying the pigment wet.

  • L'Oreal Paris EverPure Smooth Shampoo

    For many many years I've tried all kinds of shampoos and conditioners from high end to low end and although have like many products I have never really "loved" any one product...until now. I use both the Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner. I have color treated hair that prone to frizzing because I straighten my naturally curly hair. This shampoo and conditioner produces better results for me than the pricey ones. I'm left with silky smooth hair and my color stays as deep and rich as the day it's colored. My days of shelling out big bucks for shampoo and conditioner are over.

  • Yves Saint Laurent Beauty Parisienne Eau de Parfum Spray

    Typically I stay far away from any fragrance that has any hint of roses but this fragrance is beautiful. The rose note is not overpowering and combined with the other notes of blackberry and sandalwood it's amazingly feminine. I received this as a sample and got tons of compliments on it...lasted all day long. Will purchase this fragrance in the near future.

    L'Oreal Paris EverPure Moisture Shampoo

    Great "dupe" for Pureology!

    On a recommendation from my hairdresser, I started using Pureology shampoo and conditoner. I'm a sucker for a "pretty package" and on a trip to Target I spotted this shiny tube of shampoo. Looked closer and saw that EverPure is both sulfate free and vegan (like my Pureology). I bought the smoothing forumla and have been using it for about a month. The super thick shampoo lathers very well and requires just a small amount of product (ummm, again, like my Pureology). My color has not faded and my hair looks fabulous. I'm not going to spend $27.00 on another bottle of Pureology...why would I when I'm getting the same results with EverPure???

  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

    I use a lot of creativity when applying my eyeshadow and until I tried this I always ended my day with creases and fading. UDPP lets my eyeshadow stay EXACTLY the same from when I apply it till I take it off. The only reason I can't give this a perfect rating is the packaging...just when I thought it was empty I cut open the container and scooped out enough product to last an additional 3 months. If UD would pacakge this in a pliable tube or jar I'd use this primer ONLY.

  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer

    I used to only use Urban Decay's Primer Potion but always ended up having to "de-pot" it because of the shape of the tube a lot of product will go to waste. After getting tired of doing the whole "slice and scoop" routine with my UDPP I decided to try Too Faced Shadow Insurance and am equally pleased with the results. A tiny amount covers my entire lid and let's my "work of art" stay put from morning till night. Best of all...the tube allows me to squeeze out every last bit...no waste.

  • Urban Decay Baked Body Glow

    Urban Decay Baked Body Glow

    Safe "summer glow"

    I got this as a "gift with purchase" when I recently purchased the box of shadows. It took a couple weeks before I decided to try it...now I use it several times a week. I have a large ugly spider vein on the side of my calf and when I'm tanned the vein is not as "in your face" however; I rarely will actually sit in the sun and bake so my pale legs stay hidden under flow-y skirts in the summer months. Not anymore....I'm back in shorts. I apply this in stripes down my legs and simply blend it with my hands. I have not had any issues with it staining my clothes or coming off (actually I'll still have a small bronzy shimmer the next day even after I've showered). So now I have a "safe tan" on my legs without the yucky smell of self-tanner. It doesn't really moisturize so I'd suggest giving plenty of time between applying this and your lotion...I moisturize before bed and then rub this on in the morning. When I run out I will certainly buy more.

  • L'Oreal Paris Double Extend Beauty Tubes

    L'Oreal Paris Double Extend Beauty Tubes

    Fabulous if you want length.

    I've been using this mascara for about 2 weeks and am very pleased with it. You have to follow the directions...one eye at a time...for the best results. I got length on my lashes (bummer that it doesn't give volume...but I'll still keep using it) and it really does not smudge one bit. I use lots of eye shadow and even when using my makeup remover to take the eye shadow off, the "tubes" stayed in place. I've read reviews where people are pulling lashes out when removing the tubes...all I can say is use PLENTY of warm water and be gentle. I just rub a bit and the tubes slide off and my own lashes stay in place. An added bonus for me is that the black side of the mascara comes out almost clean...I usually have to wipe the mascara wand on a tissue before applying to keep from getting clumps, but this one comes out clean without a ton of product on the wand. Even though I get no volume from this mascara I'll continue to use it and just wear falsies when I want lots of volume.
