If only it had a little more pigment and staying power, this would be a great lipstick. The color is a natural red lip color. Almost ylbb color. There is a slight golden highlight but it wears away quickly. I would not repurchase.
Lipstick -L'Oreal - Colour Riche -Presenting Plum (Red Carpet collection)

I purchased this today with a 2.00 off coupon and am so glad I did. This is a beautiful but unusual shade I I quess you would call it a warm shade of plum. It has somewhat of a sheer texture but good staying power. If you are a fan of the famous MAC "O" lipstick or V.S. "Ruby Sippers". you will like this one too. It is a bit pricey for a drugstore lipstick but they have $2.00 coupon with this display. Go get it before it's gone as it is a LE.!!
This has got to be the worst eyeliner I have ever used. After a few hours of wear I had racoon eyes. The worst part is it drys up after a few weeks and can not be applied at all even with water. It is way to expensive for such an inferior product!! I will not repurchase!!
This has got to be one of the best foundations I have ever used. It covers every tiny imperfection without looking too heavy. It gives a beautiful matte finish that last all day. I put a light dusting of powder over it and I have people ask me what foundation I'm wearing that it looks so good!! It's so cheap. I found mine at Dollar General for 6.00 and I use the True Beige. It is a perfect color for light/med. skin tone. Try it!!
Lip Gloss -Prestige - Aromatherapy Lipgloss in Red Stain

I finally found this gloss at a Walgreens. I love this gloss!!! It is the first gloss I have ever used that lasted more than an hour! It goes on smoothly and is such a plummy red shade. It really brings out my blue eyes. I have gotten so many compliments. The light vanilla scent is also a plus. Oh and it's not sticky like other glosses. Go buy this if you're look for the best red gloss ever!!!

I adore this lipstick shade. It is similiar to Mac "O" but with a little more red. I like it better in fact. There is a hint of gold that really brightens your eyes. It is also very moisturizing. I got 2 for 1 on the website. Can't beat that!
Shave Products -Aveeno - Positively Smooth Shave Gel
ceecee 7/21/2003 5:24:00 PM
This by far the best shave gel I have ever used. It's unbelievable how close of a shave you can get and even with a cheap disposable razor. It is almond scented which is another plus and oh so moisturizing! It is a bit expensive, but I got it on sale for 1.00 off the price. I think it is worth it.
This is my favorite shade of Max Factor lipsticks. I have always liked their lipsticks. This is a "so Hollywood" shade of lipstick. The warm red tone with a beautiful shimmer of gold highlights is very complimentary to any eye color but especially blue eyes. It is a moist lipstick that is plumping to the lips and also stays on as well as any long lasting brand. Try it!! I was told it was the shade Marilyn Monroe wore. A very sexy shade!!!
Lipstick -Bath and Body Works - feel good lip color

Purchased the B@BW lipstick in the shade Pinecone. It was 75% off at my local B@BW store. It is a beautiful color. Similiar to Mac "O" shade except with a little more burgundy color. I actually like it better! It lasted for several hours. I would purchase this again even if not on sale!!
I purchased the Chestnut color which appeared to be one of the darker colors and it was still too sheer. All of these colors are very sheer and not long lasting. They feel nice on the lips but so does tinted lip balm which is all these are. Save your money and purchase a lip balm instead.
Lotions/ Creams -Neutrogena - Norwegian Formula Hand Cream

I received a sample in the mail. It smells so bad I can't use it. It seems to be a good moisturizing cream but the scent is so bad it makes me sick!!! I wish they could put a fragrance in it.
Styling Products -Got 2 Be - full of yourself, volumizing gel 2mousse

This is one of the worst mousse products ever. It makes your hair sticky and very dry!! I returned it the same day!! Don't waste your money!!
Skincare - Face -Diane Young - Coneflower Neckline Firmer

I got this product from QVC and sent it back. This product does absolutely nothing to firm the neck. It is only a moisturizer and not a very good one at that. Don't waste your money!!
This fragrance has such a faint scent you can hardley smell it. Bath soap leaves more scent than this fragrance. Don't waste your money unless you just want the pretty bottle. I would not buy it!
