Victoria's Secret Luminous Shadow
I own several of these, including the one in the photo. These can compete with pretty much every shadow I've ever worn, both high and low in price. They wear far better than almost all drug store brands and can compete with the best of Bare Minerals and other shadows in the same category. They're around the same price point as well.

Make Up For Ever Aqua Eye Liner
I'm a recent convert to these liners. I use black 0L. It wears SO well, I don't have to touch it up at all. It doesn't smear, smudge, or flake, a huge bonus because a lot of waterproof liners do something they shouldn't. I use this on the upper waterline/inner rim, and it makes my lashes look SO lush and full without ever looking like I have false lashes on (At this point that's just plain laughable since I have yet to master them.). I like the wearability of this product, it sharpens easily, it always applies smoothly, and when I take it off at the end of the day it's not overly problematic. This is definitely a liner I will stick with.

Organix Coconut Milk Conditioner
While not one of my faves in the Organiz line, this product is probably best used on someone with thicker hair and different texture. It does smell heavenly if you're a coconut fan, which I am. Plus, it's a natural coconut smell, not artificial and overly sweet. The one makes your hair nice and shiny, so if lackluster hair is a problem this won't disappoint. Also, it's fairly priced, sulfate and paraben free, and Organix does not test on animals. The formula is good for permed and/or color-treated hair as well.

Organix Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner
I'm a big fan of Organix products and this one is no exception. It works beautifully, smoothing, moisturizing and keeps my curls looking good. It smells really nice and isn't chock full of ingredients you don't want anywhere near your body. This product line is comparable in price to most other name brands, but is sulfate & paraben free. Also, no animal testing. It's worth the price and can be found at Walmart, Target, and Walgreens at a decent $6.99-$9.99 or so per bottle. You don't have to use a ton of it because it's got higher concentrations of the quality ingredients. You can't go wrong with this stuff, but finding one for your hair type is key. This one just happens to be one of my faves.

Josie Maran Cleansing Oil
I tried this product about a year ago and after a few uses I decided I hated it. Initially I broke out and it took forever to normalize my skin, and naturally I attributed that to brief interlude with this product. A few weeks or so ago I went back to give it a 2nd chance. My skin was starting to get wintery and that drives me insane on my face because between several times a week exfoliation, regular Clarisonic use, and high quality moisturizers, my skin was parched beyond words. The first night I used this before bed. For starters this product smells DIVINE. I would bathe in this scent if I could, it's amazing. Using it this time around was different. My skin seemed to soak up the moisture and even after washing and patting dry, it still sucked up moisturizer as well. Using this a few times a week, in place of my usual cleanser, seems to be better hydrating my skin. I haven't had any breakouts related to use, nor has my skin gotten oily. I'm going to continue using it this winter to see how much improvement I notice and will report back ASAP. In the meantime I think this is a quality product worth trying. A little pricey, but it's no worse than other cleansing oils at the same price point. Also, this is the only cleansing oil I've ever used, so I'm a bit biased.

Luminous Clean Towelettes
I just bought these and for slightly over $4, they were a steal. They smell nice, and left my skin SO soft and smooth, which has never happened with any make-up removing wipe in history. My only problem with these is that, many hours after removing my make-up, as I was getting ready for bed, I found some make-up still on my face. I wasn't wearing a lot to begin with, and when you don't wear a lot you do expect the wipes to get all of it in one shot. I broke out the Clarisonic and eliminated the problem, which only took me a minute, but these immediately lost some points for not getting every bit off. The following morning there was some slight liner residue under my eyes which happens with even the best make-up removers, especially if you line the upper inner rims. Otherwise, I think these are pretty great and they are definitely going to replace my previous brand.

A previous Beyonce scent left me with a chemical burn on my wrist, so I spritzed this one with caution. It was a little too grapefuit-ish for me to wear (even as a big fan of LaVanila's Vanilla Grapefruit). This one was missing something in a huge way. Thankfully it was a gift & easy to return.

I received this as a gift. First spritz on my wrist gave me a chemical burn, as certain perfumes do. I returned it due to that, but I also couldn't stand the smell. Not every fragrance is for everyone.

I received this in my New Beauty Test Tube earlier this week. Normally I use Josie Maran's Argan Oil on my cuticles, but this stuff has converted me. Deeply moisturizing formula for hands and toes. I will definitely be purchasing this when I run out.

This is a good prpduct, whether you're a natural blonde or not, it will help with the styling process and keep your hair smooth. My hair is naturally curly/wavy and I occasionally straighten it with the InStyler. This product makes it easier when I'm blonde. A little goes a long way.
