@vamp1967 Old? No. It just means that you have good taste, many points of reference/comparison for new products, and that the industry is crazy. ;o) This comment has been removed.

@swingstar Also, you can get an extra 10-20% off of the facial wash if you're a member of The Body Shop and show on a Member's Appreciation Day (advertised in their newsletters). This comment has been removed.

@RoryGautsche Hehe. Yeah, #1 and #2 are items that I make sure to keep in-stock at all times. :oD My only complaint with #2 is the applicator, but I found that a one-time purchase of a thinner, tapered eyeliner brush will work wonders (many more looks are possible) and let it apply just as well as Fluidline.

@maimouth I love Sugarpill. Hands-down, they're my favorite makeup brand. I'd recommend any of their colors, really. Both loose pigments and pressed powders have been amazing so far. Very dense pigment, brilliant colors, and easy blending. If you end up getting Burning Heart, I'd love to see the looks you make with it. :o) This comment has been removed.

@courtney2bambi Of course! It was fun to write. :o) And, yes, I will never understand why the best scents are discontinued instead of being re-released. This comment has been removed.

Love it! I use #1 and #2 everyday! The Aveeno is fabulous for it's price! And the Maybelline Liner is very similar to MAC's Fluidline but much cheaper! I would love to try that facial wash! Thanks for the list! This comment has been removed.
