Personally, I think this is one of the best concealers I've tried. (but I haven't tried some of the more famous ones like LM or Dior). It was only $13.50 I believe and covers VERY well. Stays put, too. Helps with the little fine lines around my eyes. :) Will probably repurchase.
Liquid -Shiseido - The Makeup Lifting Foundation SPF 16

As much as I love Shiseido, this makes me feel like I'm suffocating. The finish is lovely, but very heavy, even when I mixed it with moisturizer. I'll stick w/ their fluid foundation- though I wish they'd put it in a pump, too. I prefer the color range in the Lifting formula, as it runs a tad darker.
For the love of God. This stuff is offensive! Gives me a migraine within 2 minutes. It seems like NO ONE can wear it in moderation. Smells like some cheap hooker.
Awesome stuff. AND the wand fits in the Lash Lift tube! I'm not someone who buys back ups, but I did of this because it's not going to be available again until early 2006 and it's already selling out. The brush is amazing. HG status
Eye Makeup Remover -Neutrogena - Oil Free eye makeup remover

Great stuff. I refuse to pay alot for my eye makeup remover, so I've tried Maybelline, Rimmel, Almay, L'Oreal, etc. This is is my favorite. No greasy residue (I wear contacts so that's VERY important) I don't use WP mascara, so I can't rate it on that. Very good price- $5 for 5.5 oz at Wal-Mart.
Moisturizers -Phisoderm - pH2O everyday moisturizer

I really like this moisturizer. It doesn't feel greasy, hasn't broke me out, and has a slight "cooling effect" when I put it on. I use it at night or during the day. Smells nice, too. I got it on sale at Walgreen's for $5. :) Will likely repurchase once I run out. Hopefully by then they'll put it in a pump.
Day 1 review: WOW! Really love the coverage and finish! Matte, but not cakey. I've read some reviews that say it's watery and light coverage, and it makes me wonder what the heck they were reviewing! In fact, I gave package quality a 4 because it's in a glass bottle, no pump, and it's a thick fluid. It could really benefit from a pump. I've used the Hydro liquid compact foundation in the winter, when I'm drier, but in the summer I'm SOOO acne prone. Shiseido's products are remarkable and my skin actually improves when using them. I'll update this review in a week to see if I am still in love w/ it! EDIT: STILL in love with this! Stays put all day. I like to sheer it out a bit with a dab of moisturizer. HG material!! EDIT #2 I just found out that this is NOT oil free. I am acne prone and it DOES NOT break me out. In fact, my skin is in better condition when I use it. That dispels that myth.
This is a preliminary review. I only bought it 2 days ago, and so far, I love it. The coverage is amazing, best described as medium to full coverage,yet it doesn't feel cakey or heavy at all. I did touch up w/ powder once throughout the day but I could have gotten away w/ not doing that. I detect NO scent, and I took a nap w/ this on and it still looked freshly applied. (This was approx 10 hours after application.) The big question now is, will it break me out? I'll let you know in a week or so. EDIT: 4th day, zit city. Yep, this beautiful foundation broke me out. :*(
I didn't like it when I first got it, swapped it, then bought it again. It's a perfect brow highlighter without looking too over the top. Love it w/ Mulch
Lip Gloss -MAC - Lustreglass - Palatial [DISCONTINUED]

How did I ever live without this l/g??? PERFECT pink on my pigmented lips! I'm a C4 w/ blonde hair, hazel/brown eyes. I think this is my new favorite lipgloss!!
I absolutely love this scent for summer! It smells very feminine and not too heavy. One of the few scents that does not give me a headache.
OH....MY....LORD. This gives me the fullest, longest, most dramatic lashes! (pic in my profile) I usually LOATHE Maybelline mascaras, but this beats YSL Faux Cils, Diorshow, Voluminous, Chanel Extracils, Max Factor Lash Lift, etc... Caution: not for subtle lashes!!
I really love this fragrance. I have a wierd body chemistry or something because so many frangrances change on me, or turn "sour". Others have described this as heavy, but on me it is so soft and feminine. I just "feel" pretty when I wear it! Also being a nurse, it certainly isn't overpowering. I have a birthday in 2 months, so I'm going to ask for more of this!
Lotions/ Creams -Olay - Quench Body Lotion - sensitive skin
luvsbrdeddragns 6/30/2005 9:00:00 AM
This is my favorite body moisturizer! It's not heavy or greasy, has slight shimmer, and NO fragrance (in the sensitive skin formula). Absorbs quickly and no need to reapply. I repurchase it often.
I will make this short and just say "ditto" on everything Smiles4C said! I usually use BedHead Hard to Get, but this works better, is a few dollars less for more than twice the amount! Hooray!
