Since it is a new year, let's review some things that we loved from the past year - which will help us get back to using our lovely goodies!
  Rainforest After Dark by Tarte
 Colored clay eye & cheek palette - absolutely love these colors and they can be worn all year long.
bare to explore (pink beige)
make a mauve (plum mauve)
plum away with me (dark plum)
up to no gold (gold)
tan-gled up in you (tan)
don’t turn a-brown (dark brown)
unleashed (nude rose blush)
champagne (highlighter)
park ave princess (bronze)
Formulated without parabens, mineral oil, triclosan, soldium lauryl sulfate and phth

I love these colors and have only used it once - which is crazy!  They will be great for the entire year.

The formula is the same as the other quads in the Les 4 Ombres range, which is supposed to be “vibrant, pigment-rich” with “long-lasting pigments”  - great news - the spring edition of Chanel Les 4 Ombres is the same formulation!

                                      Hi; I'm Mimi and I have an eye shadow problem!!!
I still enjoy these palettes even though I rarely use them  ~ both are rose colored nude eye shadows~ L'Oreal and Ulta

The Countdown to Gorgeous from bareMinerals set was fun!  I did not want everything that was included but others did so nothing was wasted.  It was a great way to try various things in this line but I am glad I did not pay full price for the set.  Included:
Deluxe Marvelous Moxie Lip-gloss in 5 different shades
Deluxe Pop of Passion Lip Oil Balm in 4 shades
Eyecolor in 5 shades
Blush in 2 shades
Radiance in 1 shade
Original Mineral Veil
Tinted Mineral Veil
Mini Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara
Mini Lash Domination Petite Precision Mascara
Deluxe SkinLongevity
I gave all the lip balms away - so far the eye shadows are very soft with a little fallout but are gentle on the skin.  Here is a pic of Thankful eye shadow which I will use in the crease:
It is a milk chocolate color - fairly powdery (is that a word??)
That is a small mascara!  I can understand smaller eye shadow samples (the larger one is Mineral Veil- I like that product a lot) - but mascara should be bigger.
But since I did not pay full price I won't complain too much.

What are some of your products that need more love - things you still enjoy but have not used consistently - share your favorites!

Att Bloggers: Do you have a reader that checks your site multiple times a day  - every day???
I have one from NJ - this person never participates or comments so I don't know the purpose of these visits, as I only publish once or twice a week.  Do you keep an eye on their IP address - which would probably be a good idea.  How do you handle the 'overly fervid' reader?
Feel free to email me if you prefer private conversation.
