Spotlight is the darkest of the luminizers and it seems to work well with my NC43 skin. It can look too icy/pale if you put too much so use a light hand.. I use a small brush and place it above my cheeks around my eyes and then down the bridge of my nose.. Perfect.. It's great because there is no glitter at all- just a hint of shimmer. Just like what you see on the red carpet.. LOVE IT!!
Got this mascara as a trial size and the brush is very nice.. I like the way it separates and coats my lashes....I would definitely buy this one again!!
I'm a big fan of long wearing lipsticks and I think Max Factor was one of the first to introduce this. The trick to long wearing lipsticks to let it dry first and then apply the gloss.. What I like to do is get a shade that matches my natural lip color and then apply whatever lipstick I have on hand.. ( doesnt have to be max factor) i have used MAC/cover girl/etc.. and it makes your lipstick stay on longer.. Max Factor has a great line of long wearing lipsticks and I also use Cover Girl Outlast as well.. I was an NFL cheerleader for a few years and we needed our makeup to last for at least 8 hours on game day and this was a lifesaver:)
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Nail Life nail revitalizer

I had gel nails for nearly 15 years on and off ( mostly on) and finally made the decision to just let them grow out. Some of my nails grew out and some of the gels I could peel away( do not recommend peeling them though- makes your nails super weak) As they were all growing out- my nails need some serious help so I went to sally's and saw this.. ( the sa said that it's similar to nailtique) I put two coats on my bare nails, followed by a base coat and then my color. I started using it in Oct and two months later- my nails are healthy and actually feel strong.. (they were weak and paintful to the touch) It dries super quick and leaves your nails with a nice glossy shine... I would highly recommend this as a treatment for weak nails.. I do it about every 2 weeks..(make sure you coat the underside of your nails too)
