what a lovely cosmetics product that is! it is really sweet looking, in that little bottle, and it looks beautiful on my cheeks. I have a pale translucent teint, and that is just perfect for me to give me a natural sweet rosy blush. since I have it, I always use it on my cheeks, three little dots each cheek, and then blend. for the little bottle which lasts probably more than one year, the price is just fair.
I heard great reviews about this one, so I bough one pressed powder in translucent. unfortunately it made my skin feel dry. it looked simply natural on my skin, but didnt give it any glow or shine. my skin was just mat when I used this powder. the case is very nice looking, but the price for what's inside is just not fair, I think. so, for dry skinners, attention with this powder.
to me, that was one of the worst cosmetic products I have bought. I heard only good things about it first, and so I tried it, and I must say, it is really not the style for my skin. it gave me break outs, was too oily, even for my dry skin, and it smells so bad to me, like fish or so, nothing like roses. I dont know, maybe some like it, but I didnt, really. I wouldnt buy it again.
That's really a shame that they take it off the market. I want paranoid back too, and I am complaining. this is really the tastiest and best dark lip gloss ever. it isnt even so dark, it just gives more colour to my lips, in a neutral brown way, and I love it. I have only one now and use it very rarely. if some people from urban decay reads that then please please bring it back, I would even pay for it a bit more if necessary. it was perfect for me, and as I see, for other girls here too.
Skincare - Body -The Body Shop - Sesame Dry Oil Mist

thats my favourite body oil. it makes my dry skin soft and smooth, and it doesnt make it greasy at all. I love to use this body shop product especially in the summer time. and the scent of it is very lovely amd light too. I just wish there was a bigger bottle of it, and AVAILABLE in germany again, please! I will buy it again, definitely.
Treatments (Eye) -BeneFit Cosmetics - Ooh la lift!

I dont know, I was a bit disappointed about this product. and I really love most benefit products, but this one didnt work for me somehow. the lady at the counter said it would be good for the fine under eye skin, because it is so dry there, but when I dabbed a bit of it under my eyes, then it removed my concealer and smeared very bad, with clogging and so. I have tried it without the concealer and that worked actually much better, really, although, it didnt cover my dark circles, but it brightend the under eye area because of the ligh reflecting pigments, and it also cools, what is very nice. so, for girls who dont like to wear concealer, then maybe ooh la lift is the choice. but I would definitely try it first, before buying it.
Moisturizers -Estee Lauder - Daywear Plus Cream for Normal/Combination skin
bunnypie 7/10/2005 8:07:00 PM
I used DayWear, and now DayWearPlus since 5 years. for my combination skin, which is rather senstive to dry, and tends to an oily t-zone, this moisturizer is the best for my face. it makes my skin feel so soft and protects it from the evil sun rays. I really never had problems with it, even when I had some acne, it didnt bother my skin. it is my best face-skin friend for the whole day :)
I had lots of problems to find a concealer which doesnt look cakey or fakey, rather, under my eyes, but then I found boi-ing, and I was really a bit sceptical at the beginning, but I tried it, and I really couldnt believe it, but it fit just perfectly with my skin tone (I use 01, the lightest), it was easy to blend and didnt fill in my creases. it covered the dark circles under my eyes and my eyes shine so naturally from it. I love this concealer and I never go out of the house without it. I have also found out that I can cover even smeared eye shadow. all these things are good about it, but the tin of it broke, and that is not so nice, otherwise, it is the best concealer that I have ever tried. the price is just fair, I think.
Blush -BeneFit Cosmetics - Georgia ] ] [DISCONTINUED]

Georgia is really one of a kind, I think. it is not a blush, but I apply it first as a blush, that means, I put more on my cheeks of it than on the rest of the face. It gives my pale skin a very healthy and warm glow too, and I love that. I can look in the mirror for hours and admire the way this sweet smelling peachy powder works. it also smells so beautifully sweet and peachy. about the box, it may be a bit complicated in a bag, but it is so very lovely looking that I really dont mind. that is one of my favorite beauty products, in any case.
I am happy to see so many good comments about Cool Water, because I think it smells really beautiful on my boyfriend. I like it so much, that I sometimes use it too, just to smell like him, but of course, it smells so much better on him :) anyway, I see it as the most attractive fragrance too. I also like the cool dark blue bottle of it. very ellegant, I think.
I love this shampoo. the funny thing is, I know it from my boyfriend, who has curly hair, and I have very straight hair, which is rather fine and has no volume. but this shampoo gave absolutely everything that my fine hair needs. It feels easy, clean, soft, and it gives my hair volume and shine. all these things in one. I have never imagined that all could come from only one shampoo, but it does, and that is why I love it and will buy it again for sure. plus, I love the smell of almond and cherry that it has.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Body Butter - Brazil Nut

This is the BEST body moisturizer ever. You can be sure your skin will feel moisturized and sooooo soft. maybe a bit greasy at the beginning, but that goes away very fast. not to forget the smell of it: you really want to eat it, and I have tried it, but it doesnt taste as good as it smells, lol. but my skin must really love the taste of it :P yummy. And yes, I would definitely buy it again, as I do since 5 years now.
Moisturizers -Christian Dior - iOd Sorbet moisturizer
bunnypie 7/10/2005 3:00:00 PM
mmmmmm :) That was a very nice moisturizer, it really moistured my skin the whole day and I, personally, love the smell of it. I would definitely buy it again. my skin was moisturized but not oily and it felt so soft and fine. I was touching my face all the time when I used iOd, just because it felt so nice and soft. I would just like it much more if it would have spf 15. but that is okay too, since my foundation, also by dior, has it.
