If you don't have it, get it!!
This tinted lip balm is a perfect 10! It is a must have for your purse, desk, and cosmetic stash, plus it is so affordable you can buy a bunch. The balm is buttery and moisturizing, but not greasy. It does not creep. It comes in a great range of colors. I tried this in Shukran, which is a dark rose-one of those "like your lip colors, but better" colors. It is pigmented, but subtle, great for quick on the go application where you don't have time for precision, casual every day, to protect and moisturize your lips, or a nice, very natural look. It lasts. I have very sensitive, allergy prone skin and this product works well for me. It may have a very slight fruity flavor, fragrance that I detect, but so slight, I am not sure. I love this balm, even better than the luxe department store varieties. If you have not tried this, you should! It is a real bargain.

Could have been great
This balm lipstick comes in gorgeous colors, has great pigmentation, goes on smoothly and lasts for a good amount of time and is creamy without bleeding. The downfall is that being a balm, I expected it to moisturize my lips. Instead it dried out and irritated my lips because it is minty. Mint is known to irritate skin. If they left that particular ingredient out, it would be a winner. I would suggest trying a different balm and getting a tin at mints or pack of gum for better results.

I almost never polish my nails at home because between being interrupted by my kids, pets, and not being able to sit still while my nails dry, I always ruin them and get polish on something. I am also not good at staying in the lines. These are awesome, very easy to apply, there is no drying time, no smudges or dings. My nails grow out of the polish at the nail bed before they chip or wear off. They look like a salon quality manicure because they are strips of actual polish, not stickers. I tried the cloud nine French manicure. You see which tip size will fit your nail, peel, stick, and stretch over the end of the nail, then file the excess off with the included file. You repeat with a strip of clear polish that covers the entire nail using the same technique. Easy to do, no dry time so you can stop in the middle and continue later without messing it up (great for busy moms) it can also be repositioned to a point. It is more expensive, but less messy and more convenient than polish. It is cheaper than a salon visit. It does take some work to remove it with nail polish remover. Live these, well worth it!

Color could be better
I was a huge fan of Clinique's City Stick and have been looking for a good stick foundation I had high hopes for this. It is creamy, provides decent coverage and lasts the day. It is reasonably priced. The thing that was the deal breaker for me is that all of the colors are too peachy or orangy for me. If the colors better matched my skin tone, I would be all over these.

I am a huge clinique fan and was totally stoked that they came out with these retractable cream stick eye shadows. I am sooooo disappointed. These are not the Clinique quality I have been accustomed to over the years. First of all, they are very sheer, not pigmented at all. I was told they are supposed to be buildable, but I got Pink and Plenty and it would not show up on my light/med. skin at all, even layered, even on top of a shadow base. I vas very unhappy and exchanged it for Ample Amber and Fuller Fudge, which are still super sheer, but at least show up on my skin. They fade throughout the day. Even though I was careful with them, the shadow sticks both broke off from the base and now fall out of the applicator. Real disappointment with these. I would recommend skipping them, especially considering the price. On the plus, they are fragrance free, go on smoothly, do not crease, and do not irritate the skin. They also blend easily (do not be afraid of the darker colors, they are so sheer and fade so fast).

This shampoo is affordable, cleanses well, and has a light fruity, floral scent. I don't believe there is any way for a shampoo to protect your hair at all-it rinses out after all. Plus, water itself fades and washes out a little color out every time so I think the claim is deceptive. It is a good, average shampoo.

This is an excellent and inexpensive conditioner for my fine straight hair. It lightly conditioned and detangled my hair without weighing it down. It smells just like raspberry tea. It comes in a value two pack large pump style bottles at Target. I love the pump bottles because it helps the kids use a reasonable amount.

Nice fruity apricot fragrance
I got a sample of this and found it was oily and did not really seem to absorb at all. I did not notice any softening in particular. I prefer CND Solar Oil because I feel I get better results. This was okay. It had a very true fruit, apricot fragrance.

Vanilla buttercream fragrance
I tried a sample of this and love it. It has a vanilla buttercream fragrance almost identical to Neutrogena's deep moisture body butter and wash. It left my fine hair very moisturized, shiny, tangle and frizz-free, and noticeably soft without being weighed down. The price is right. Awesome!

Not for me
This conditioner is effective without weighing down fine hair, but is expensive and no better than less expensive conditioners. It's minty freshness is invigorating, however "tingling" means it will ultimately irritate your scalp with continued use. Mint is a known skin irritant. It may be okay to just use on your ends. No thanks. Not for me.
