    Maybelline New York Great Lash Washable Mascara

    Good price and an old favorite

    I remember seeing this product in my grandma's makeup drawer when I was a kid, so this has been around for awhile. As with most products that have endured, this one has endured for a reason. I cringe at the thought of buying more expensive mascara since it only lasts a few months. I've tried more expensive kinds that were given to me as samples, but I really couldn't tell the difference. I use Brownish Black, and I love it. I'm open to trying other kinds, but this one is a makeup drawer staple. I don't see myself abandoning this mascara for a more expensive brand. *Upon further review, I have decided to change my rating for this product. I have taken the time to try more mascaras and I have found that this mascara seems wetter and it is more work to apply and then try to get rid of the clumps. I think I was mainly attracted to the low price, and didn't really know better. I have taken the rating down to five stars.

    MAC Dazzleglass

    They are not kidding with the "dazzle"!

    I ordered Bare Necessity from the MAC website. It must have been popular, because as of today (June 2, 2008), the website says that the shade, as with most others, is sold out. It's a very shiny gloss. If you dislike dazzle, sparkle and shine on your lips, steer clear of this product! The vanilla-scented gloss had no flavor that I could detect, and it comes with a brush applicator. I found it to be sort of sticky, but also very long lasting.

    M.A.C. Eye Shadow

    Expensive, but excellent

    While this product is expensive, it is of high quality. It applies smoothly and the color that you see is the color that you get when you apply it. It is long-wearing and overall a good value. MAC does eye shadow right. I recommend this product for people who love a wide range of colors, some of which are very bold and fun.

  • L'Occitane Verbena Body Salt Scrub

    L'Occitane Verbena Body Salt Scrub

    Nice stuff, not crazy about the packaging

    I bought some of this from the L'Occitane store in the mall a few years back, but haven't repurchased for one big reason: the packaging. I don't like to have glass in my shower for safety reasons. The scrub is really good, but I would prefer a plastic tub or jar. If you're a fan of L'Occitane's Verbena Harvest line and you don't mind glass in your shower, try this because it's an excellent scrub.

  • L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream
    5.0

    L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream

    Less expensive cream worked better

    I thought this would be really good stuff. It's good, but for the price it should be better. I can't find Palmer's shea butter hand cream anymore, but that cheap hand cream purchased at a Wal-Mart actually made my hands softer than the L'Occitane cream did!

  • L'Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Cream

    I purchased this from Sephora. This thick, rich cream is great for winter skin. My legs tend to get dry and itchy anyway, but being exposed to dry central heating air makes them even worse. This cream soothes my legs and makes them soooo soft. A little seems to go a long way. Use it before bed and your skin will feel like silk! I really enjoy this product

    Philosophy Body Butter

    Smells heavenly!

    I find that it helps to sort of melt this stuff with the warmth of my hands before spreading it onto my body. The scent is wonderful and it softens without feeling too heavy and greasy. I highly recommend it to people who love the smell of mint.

  • Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer

    Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer

    Did my pores get bigger?!

    I got a sample of this from Sephora. It felt so silky and smooth going on that I thought I was instantly hooked. That is, until later in the day when it seemed like my pores got huge. I tried a little more the next day, and the result was the same. I understand this product is supposed to "create a perfect canvas" but I was unimpressed.

    Rimmel London Colour Rush Duo Eyeshadow

    You get what you pay for!

    I wanted to try some new colors but didn't want to pay over $10 or drive all the way to Sephora, so I bought this product. I found it to be chalky and difficult to apply and almost impossible to blend. My search for a good inexpensive eyeshadow continues.

  • L'Occitane Pure Shea Butter
    10.0

    L'Occitane Pure Shea Butter

    Nothing better than pure shea butter

    I bought this at Sephora. This pure shea butter is the best thing in the world for chapped lips and dry skin. I like to use it after brushing my teeth, before applying lip gloss, and whenever my lips feel a little too dry. I only wish that this came in stick form rather than in a little tin because I don't like to apply lip products with my fingers. It is a little on the expensive side -- I bought a 0.26 oz tin for $8 -- but it's a really good product and I will buy it again when the tin is used up.
