Lip Gloss -Bobbi Brown - Shimmer Lip Gloss - Spun Gold

Love this lip gloss. It's a shimmery bronze rose color with lots of shine. It really has staying power for a gloss too. The color works well on my PPP skin. My only complaint is the size of the tube. I bought it off Ebay & at first thought it was a trial or sample size. It's not, BB glosses are approx. .14 oz. & she sells them for 19.00. I got it off EB for half that. Unfortunately, I believe this shade is a limited edition which is too bad because it's very pretty.

This bronzer is just ok. The mosaic has colors from dark to light & in the compact it looks like a little shimmer but when applied doesn't show any shimmer at all. That was a disappointment. I bought a bronzer brush to apply better but the colors just don't do it for me. The search goes on for that perfect bronzer.
This highlight product didn't look anything like the color on the box after highlighting. Instead of looking light a light red or reddish brown like it states on the box it looks more like a light brown. The packaging was ok. So far I've not found a highlighting kit that I like. I don't think I will repurchase this.
This gloss is a sheer tangerine color with just enough shimmer. I am a PPP & because of all the hype I bought Nars Orgasm but I looked completely washed out. This Sunset Strip has more color but is very subtle looking & not as dark as the tube looks. My only complaint is the packaging. The tube is not that big for the money (23.00)Luckily I found it on Ebay for half that amount. I would repurchase it again.
This conditioner is just average. Actually the only reason why I bought this is because the Phyto Citrus Shampoo put more tangles & knots in my hair I had no choice but to by this balm. Way to pricy & not worth the money. I would not purchase again.
This shampoo is the worst I have ever tried & believe me I have tried many. The salon that cuts my hair uses this all the time. I bought it because my hair always looks so nice after I leave the salon. This line seems to be the new thing at most salons. Why, I don't know. First of all the shampoo comes in a glass bottle. That's a no no for me. Way to easy to break. Second, the price is ridiculous. I think I paid about 18.00. Third, my hair becomes so tangled I can't brush it. I bought the conditioner which helps. I would never buy this again. I will go back to Matrix Biolage.

I can't say enough good things about this foundation. The color is great (Buff) & the way it lasts is amazing. I have normal/oily skin & after a few hours the foundation especially on my nose, forehead & chin almost disappears. This foundation promises to last all day & it does. The price(around 36.00) is high, but I got a good deal on EB. I will definately repurchase.
I love, love, love this product! I can't say enough about this. I've only been using this 4 days & already I see results. I have slightly droopy eye lids & this stuff makes them look years younger. The jar has gel for the upper eye & cream for the lower. I can also see the difference under my eye as well. The puffyness & slight dark circles are almost gone. If I'm getting these results after just a few days I can imagine how great I'll look after I've used it a while. My only complaint is the jar that it comes in. It will be hard to scoop out the cream once it's half empty. The price was more than I usually spend (32.00) but it's really worth it. I've never seen such results so soon after using it. I haven't used Avon products in years, but saw an ad in once of the magazines & researched it on M/A & saw all the good reviews. Ladies, this is great stuff. My eyes look so much more open & the eyeshadow is clearly more visable on my eyes. I'm sold on this product.
I recently bought this on EB for 17.00. I'm so glad I didn't spend the retail price which is about 32.00. It covers my dark circles but it seems to settle in the little lines under the eye & calls attention to them. I've never had a concealer do this before. I really expected more from this product since it's so very expensive. It's really creamy in the jar but once you try to apply it it seems to be very drying. I'm using a really creamy moisturizer before I apply it to see if it will help. So far I'm not loving this. I tried using the powder that comes with it thinking this may stop it from creasing but it doesn't. I also bought BB oil free foundation & can't believe that's it's just about average. Considering the price I really expected more. About the only good thing I can say is that it covers imperfections on the face better than under the eye & for that I am giving it 3 lippies. I guess I will have to still try to find the perfect concealer. It's got to be out there somewhere!

I really expected more from this foundation. I bought Ivory shade which is a great match but nothing more. This foundation is supposed to be medium coverage but instead goes on very sheer. If I wanted a sheer foundation I would have bought a tinted moisturizer. The smell reminds me of Noxema which I can't stand. I really expected more from a high end company like BB. A few weeks ago I bought L'Oreal True Match & quite frankly I think I like it more than BB. I'm glad I didn't spend the true amount for this (I think around 40.00) because I got it on Ebay for 17.00. I'm very disappointed.
I really like the color of this gloss. It's a sheer pink with lots & lots of shimmer. The problem I have is that it really is so sheer that it seems to fade away after a short time. I think I paid about 17.00 or 18.00 for it so I really expected more staying power. I like the vanilla like scent & the brush applicator but if I'm going to spend that much I might as well go the extra 6.00 for NARS which has much more staying power.
Since I've been looking for a new concealer I figured I'd give this one a try. I'm sorry I did. This really doesn't conceal undereye circles at all & my aren't really that dark. I bought it in "light" as I am very fair. About the only good thing I can say is that it has a light moisturizer in it. As far as concealing anything-- it doesn't. It also seems to make my eyes burn. It was a waste of money as I'm still looking for a good concealer.
I've been using this blush for months now & continue to love it. I am a PPP with brown/red hair. This blush is a peachy pink color with flecks of shimmer to it. The color looks a little more pink than peach on me. Since pink is the "in" color this year I decided to try this. A makeup asst. said because of my hair color I should stay away from pink, but once I tried this I was hooked. I'm glad I didn't listen to her! This blush is fantastic! I find myself reaching for this often. To me the color is pigmented so I don't have to use much. I love NARS packaging too. I have the Orgasm lip gloss which I'm not crazy about. I definately love the blush more. It gives me a healthy natural glow. My only complaint is the price but since I don't use much it will probably last me quite a while.
I've been using this product for 2 years now & it's about the best moisturizer I've ever used. I've tried many through the years & spent a fortune only to throw them away, but this works so well for me. My only complaint is that you have to scoop out the cream with your finger but the cream is so moisturizing that it clears up my dry skin right away. The price is the best too.

I bought this gloss on line hoping it was more in the pink family than beige, but when I put it on it looks more like a champagne beige with a very pale pink hue to it. I really don't like it on me because I look washed out. I'm a PPP so this color really doesn't do much for me. I like the packaging & the brush works well. I'm not too crazy about the consistancy as it seems to get sticky after a while. Overall, I won't purchase this again.
