    Anastasia Brow Express Palette

    Finally love your eyebrows!

    Stellar kit for those of us who are a bit unsure when it comes to shaping our brows. The stencils are pretty easy to use and I must say I am now a convert when it comes to filling in my brows. Who knew that some wax, powder and highlight could create such a dramatic change in my look? Brows stay put and so does any color you add. It all adds up to a more polished - and more youthful - look.

  • Alba Organic Lavender Sunscreen SPF 30

    Alba Organic Lavender Sunscreen SPF 30

    Great natural sun protection

    If you have sensitive skin or just prefer organic products, this is an amazing sunscreen. I went through four tubes of this over the summer and not once was burned (I'm very fair). It smells great, isn't greasy in the least, and absorbs almost instantly. As an added benefit it leaves skin nicely moisturized. I didn't need a separate one for my face either - no breakouts or irritation.

    Benefit Georgia

    Not what I hoped for

    After loving the glow that Dandelion gives, I was really looking forward to a warmer tone with this powder. Honestly, I really can't tell when this is on my face or not except for the hint of shimmer. Maybe my skin is too fair and pink undertoned for it to work, but sadly it doesn't do much of anything for me. I passed it along to a friend who isn't near as fair as me, and it really looked amazing on her. So for that, I give it five stars. Ehh, win some, lose some.

  • Benefit gee... that was quick!

    Definitely give this one a try if you love Lancome's Bi-facil but hate the greasy feeling it leaves behind. I love how fast it takes off waterproof makeup and the clean feeling it leaves behind. It's nice to be able to open my eyes after using this without having to look through a haze until I wash my eyes again. It does a pretty decent job as well on removing long wear lipsticks/stains.

    Benefit Thrrrob

    A pink for every skin tone

    Perfect pink cheeks is the best way to describe this powder. It doesn't take much to give the right amount of color and it's too easy to apply too much of this powder in the beginning. The downside is that you really do need to use a primer with this blush or else it tends to disappear in just a couple of hours. On the upside because it takes just a light swipe to give great color, this box will last a really, really long time. Is it worth the investment? Yes, if you are looking for that universally flattering shade of pink that doesn't look clownish or cartoonish.

  • Benefit Powderflage Light Diffusing Power Concealer

    After reading rave product descriptions, I thought I would give this a try. I'm a big fan of most Benefit products, so I was ready to fall in love with this one too. Well, so far, so-so. It seems to work well for under the eyes, but as for laugh lines or eyebrow furrows, not so much. It does have a bit of a brightening effect, and it's this that makes it look a bit weird when applied anywhere except under the eyes. I prefer Bare Minerals Mineral Veil to this actually. While it works great to perk up tired eyes, I can't really say I'd buy this one again.

  • Benefit Dallas Face Powder

    Benefit Dallas Face Powder

    Huh...Even made me look sun kissed

    All I have to say about Dallas is why didn't I try this sooner??? As someone who doesn't tan (I burn like toast), I have also shied away from any and all things self-tanner related because of the funky orange tint it tends to give me. With Dallas, it's a different story. I finally - finally!! - can give my face a bit of a summertime glow. No orange side effects, no out of place shimmer, just a soft and buildable color that can suit any skin tone with ease. Add this to your makeup arsonal.

    Benefit Sugarbomb

    Benefit's best blush

    I really love my Sugarbomb powder. It complements my very fair complexion no matter how I use the colors. I've also used the colors separately as eye shadows which turn out lovely. If you aren't a fan of Benetint, give this powder a try. It gives almost a good of a "just pinched" cheek flush as Benetint does but with less commitment. It's also a great starter blush for anyone who isn't quite sure what color(s) to use or changes their blush with every season. And for the price, this little box contains a surprising amount of product. My current one is going on a year old and I still have just about half of it left.

  • Dior Diorshow Mascara

    Dior Diorshow Mascara

    Holy amazing lashes

    Okay, so NOW I know what all the hype is about. It took awhile, but I broke down and finagled a sample size out of a Dior makeup rep. I couldn't bring myself to pay $28 for a mascara that I wasn't sure was anywhere near the cost. I have to say that this mascara is pretty astounding. No clumps, no smudging, no flaking - just long and lush lashes that even my husband noticed. And this is with the non-waterproof version. I didn't even need to wear eyeliner. I'm a total fan now, but with a price this high I don't think this will be a typical purchase for every day wear.

  • Benefit BADgal waterproof mascara

    FINALLY! A waterproof mascara that doesn't flake, smudge, smear or run at the first hint of water. And no crunchy brittle lashes either. The best part? No clumps, just thick long lashes. I can swipe this on my lashes and go. Imagine not having to lean into the mirror every morning to declump your lashes and put on coat after coat or toss a new mascara because it dried out/gunked up after just a couple of weeks. It is pricey at $18 a tube, but how many tubes have you already thrown out because they just don't work?
