Styling Products -Redken - 15 Spray Starch Heat Memory Styler
nicolefox_ot 1/21/2012 8:36:00 AM
I've purchased this a few times and really like it. I use Spray Starch with my curling iron to tame my very thick and course hair. It's one of the few products that really helps keep my hair under control - much more smooth. This product will only give you control (you can also use as a finishing spray) and heat protection and not shine like some other products. I took off a star, because I'm not crazy about the smell - smells like hair spray, nothing special. I paid about $15 for a 5 oz bottle at Ulta.
This reminds me of old lady perfume - that classic, floral-powdery scent that makes me think of my grandma. Cute bottle though.
Blush -Maybelline - Dream Mousse Blush in Peach Satin ] ] [DISCONTINUED]

This is a beautiful, shimmery blush. It's very creamy and applies easily with a light touch. I don't see a lot of peach on me, but it is a warmer shade of pink. Check it out if you're interested in trying a cream blush.
These are even better than the Colorjuice line, which I love. The packaging (applicator tip) is much better, they have a yummier, sweet smell, and they are a little less tacky. The staying power is similar to CJ, and like the CJ glosses they wear off well, meaning doesn't leave that annoying , crusty ring of color around your lips that some glosses and lipsticks do. I have several colors, including the violet, nude, and coral shade.
Mascara -Cover Girl - Cover Girl Professional Mascara (washable)

I love this mascara! This is a really fantastic every day mascara tha that become a little more dramatic with a few extra coats. I love the speration the brush provides and it literally lasts all day. Easily washes off with my cetaphil.
I had liked this mascara initially, but after a few weeks of using it, I feel like I can't get it off my lashes. My lashes always feel like there is gunk on them, even after using makeup remover.
Horrible!!! Did not glide across the skin as others stated, in fact it was very difficult to apply. The packaging was cheap - the top cracked on me just by snapping it closed. When I wrote to the compay I never got a response. Don't waste your money!
Liquid -Revlon - Beyond Natural Skin Matching Makeup SPF 15

I really like this makeup. Coverage can be light to medium and it blends easily. The lightest color is a good match for my pale skin. Not crazy about a squeeze bottle, however, otherwise I'd give it 5 stars. I know its so you don't get your germs inside the bottle, but if you squeeze too much out you waste it.
I'm so surprised more people don't seem to like this. It's a pretty. feminine, floral, but clean scent. My only complaint, as someone else mentioned, is that it doesn't last very long.
I can't believe people love this. The thickness of the product is so large it's cumbersome to apply and it doesn't last even an hour. Even as cheap as it is, it's a waste of money.
I guess I'm in the minority here. I purchased Cherry Pit and although the color was pretty, the consistency was so runny! It made such as mess. I won't be repurchasing.

I just returned this TM. It was way too shiney for me and the consistency was too runny. Great coverage though.
Treatments -Paula's Choice - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Lotion Exfoliant

I had been using the 2% gel and switched to the lotion. Both products are great, I just wanted something more moisturizing. I swear my skin has never looked better since I've been using these. I use the lotion once a day (at night) and the results are amazing. My 35 year old skin looks soft and wrinkle-free. I had been getting an occasional crater-like zit on my chin (where I tend to have more oiliness), but not any more. I will definitely purchase again!
Tinted Moisturizer -Sonia Kashuk - Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15

Love this TM! Best coverage of any TM I've tried (seems almost like a foundation). Leaves my skin looking beautiful with a natural looking dewey finish. You can re-apply for touch-ups if needed without getting dry patches. Don't love the packages like many others, but the product inside is worth it.
Pretty color for day or night. Goes on smoothly to create a thin or thick line and lasts most of the day. Great price (purchased on a buy 2 get 2 free sale).
