This is incredibly delicious and realistic smelling. This is pretty strong and I can smell it everywhere in my apartment when I use it. I need to be careful though because I think this made me hungrier than usual...lol.

I love this; it really is MLBB on me. I have been wearing it everyday to work. It is sheer and very office-friendly. It also keeps my lips moisturized!
Polishes -Sally Hansen - Complete Salon Manicure in Hidden Treasure

Beautiful flakey top coat! If I did not love Essie Shine of the Times more I would definitely rebuy.
This gave me clumpy spider lashes...do not want!
In the tube, this doesn't look like anything special.... Just a nice brownish red gloss. However, this gloss instantly makes my pigmented lips look sophisticated yet low key. The texture wears wonderfully and evenly, even adding some hydration. Especially great for a polished summer look!
This gloss is fabulous fo toning down pigmented lips with a smokey eye. This is light pink with a touch of mauve. I prefer my "Black Tie" Glossimer for this kind of look, but Oyster Girl also works. Application is a little tricky and can be clumpy, but otherwise, a great product!
Foundations -MAC - Studio Stick SPF 15 ] [DISCONTINUED]

I love this foundation! It is super creamy and blendable, and can be used under the eyes as a concealor. The NW15 matches my uber pale skin perfectly. I find that I do run out of this quickly though. I'm on my third tube!
Scrubs -Bliss Labs - Pore Perfecting Facial Polish

I've almost used up my entire tube of this stuff, and it doesn't really seem to help with my clogged pores. The products is a pleasure to use: it smells nice and the spheres are very gentle on the skin. However, it really hasn't given me any results, so I most likely would not re-purchase.
I got this mask as a sample. It gave my skin a deep cleanse but left it a bit on the dry side. I might buy this to keep on hand for skin emergencies (i.e. breakouts).
This is a great peel for congested skin, and it will stop breakouts cold in their tracks. I probably will not buy this again though since I need more aggressive exfoliation than this offers.
This mask smells beautiful. I noticed some reduction in pore size, but little else in terms of results. Would not repurchase for the price.
This color on its own really washed out my PPP coloring. I've struggled to pair to with the right lipliner. It is more rosey than reddish and really the look didn't come together until I paired it with a subdued reddish lipliner. The packaging is lovely, the red metallic case is like a work of art! If I bought this again, it would be in another color though.
I am not sure what this product does. It surely didn't make my hair silky or shiny, and it really smells terrible. The only thing I like about it is the name "Luce" and the shape of the bottle. Needless to say, I will not be repurchasing.
Treatments -Estee Lauder - Advanced Night Repair (Serum)

I love this product. I am 28 and have been using this for at least three years. I am addicted to this product, I just wish it was a little cheaper. This keeps my skin hydrated and soothed, I love it. I notice a real difference when I don't use this which tells me it's doing something. I look at least three-five years younger than I am, and have virtually no lines. I am especially shocked when I meet people my age or see friends I haven't seen in a while. I look younger than they do....I hope ANR continues to work for me.
Self Tanners -Lancome - Flash Bronzer - Tinted Self-Tanning Moisturizing Mousse
piratequeen 5/30/2007 11:25:00 AM
First off, I do not understand the mousse concept....not sure what the advantage is. While the end result was fine, I hated the bronzing aspect of this product. It made me look orange and felt sticky. And I agree that it took forever to dry! The smell was hideous and certainly the worst aspect of the product! I would do self-tanning at night with this product because this scent will overpower any of your perfumes! Will not buy again!!
