  1. So many new stuff to try out ! The 200 calorie mascara is good,no doubt about that ! Clinique almost makeup is great too ! But I am a little tired of seeing Orgasm there. How many more years until its gone….LOL

  2. I tried the Shu Uemura cleansing oil but I really don’t think that it’s worth the price for what it is. I think it’s nice but it’s not great!

  3. I agree with some things on their list, I love Clinique, but I was never impressed with Great Lash especially when there are so many lovely mascaras out there, so I’m sick of seeing it on lists!

    I can’t wait to see your picks!
