All You Magazine sent over several of the winning products for my review, so I'll be working my way through those over the next couple of weeks. My favorite winning item is one I'm very familiar with, Wet ‘n’ Wild Color Icon eye shadow collection in Comfort Zone ($5.00, available at mass retailers). I know a lot of you have and love this product also.

Whew! That's a long list! I always enjoy reading which products magazines name as "The Best", and I normally have some of them or have used some in the past. I also end up discovering "new to me" products in these "Best Of" articles. I'm looking forward to trying out all of the products they sent over, but some that I'm particularly interested in, include the Sonia Kashuk Perfecting Luminous Foundation, the CeraVe SA Renewing Lotion, the L’Oreal Youth Code Eye Cream, and the Simple Vital Vitamin Day Cream SPF 15.
