I also own the Allure Nov04 issue with Angelina Jolie on the cover ..with the mention of this Guerlain 480 lipstick as her favorite. Curious as to the color and after checking Guerlain's website. ..a local boutique by my home carries GUerlain and a large supply of 480 lipstick. I LovE THE COLOR! I Wear a smokey eye every day and this nude lip color compliments it well especially when I add just a touch of juicy tube on top for shine! Adore the French perfume smell! I Will REPURCHASE!
I wanted to love this, but the taste was just TERRIBLE .. I almost had to vomit! I love the stickness ..it is actually less than Juicy Tubes or Mac Lipglass, but I couldn't get over the accident lick of the lips. The price is superb ..I either love a Wet n Wild item or I hate it ..unfortunately, this gloss is in the chuck pile! **EDIT ** The taste must have been for the clear glassy color because I purchased Sun Glaze due to the color and just told myself to just not lick my lips, accidents do happen but the Sun Glaze tastes fine. I will just stay clear of the clear glosses!
I thought this was just terrible. As another reviewer mentioned, if you are looking for more sparkle then this is not for you. I was hoping for more seperation. With my dark skin, shimmer shows up easy ..but this all over blush appeared very grey and just too clumped together. I tried to use it as highbrow shimmer and that didnt work either, not even with a decent brush. Overall, I am pleased with the majority of Wet n Wild products!
I purchased this liner due to the high reviews on W&W line. I am very pleased with #711 - great rich brown ..I dont see the red in this pencil, it shows up brown on me. I have two other department store brand brown liners and my Wet n Wild from my days as a teenager beats the others down pact in creamy and smooth texture in application, length, and for 1.50 on sale, you can't beat that. HG~!
MY HOLY GRAIL BLUSH! I do have dark skin as another reviewer mentioned that this would look great! The sutle shimmer on my high bone and the rich pumpkin deep color just looks amazing on me. I plan on taking my Chanel blush back that is plum and getting a plum NARS> I love how this blush lasts all day with no retouch. Just sexy! Will forever repurchase. Love how Naiomi Campbell is the NARS model spokesperson.
I dont care for this perfume for women but Paradise for Men is UNBELIEVABLE! I brought home a sample for my extremely picky boyfriend when it comes to cologne and he sprayed it and I fell over in complete swoon! Needless to say ..my boyfriend was late to work, LOL!
Treatments -Estee Lauder - Perfectionist Correcting Serum
dslloyd 12/4/2004 9:57:00 AM
If used correctly, you will see the results. Perfectionist does not go over your entire face like a lotion ..you pump once and apply the serum directly on the fine line itself, I use it on my forehead and laugh lines around my mouth. The effect is temporary as the line disappears, however if I stop for several days, the lines return. 1 bottle lasts a very long time since you only apply it directly. So far, I have only had to purchase 1 bottle every year. Been using this since 25 and I am 28 and just now telling my secret as my friends always ask why I have no wrinkles. ESTEE BABY!
Treatments (Eye) -American Beauty - Moisture-Wise Continueous Hydrating Eye Cream
dslloyd 11/29/2004 7:27:00 PM
For the price of this eye cream, you get a lot in a deep jar. I just finished my jar and will not repurchase because my eyes look the same as before I used it. I went to the EL counter for more idealist and the counter manager told me that this hydrating American Beauty's eye cream is just that, for moisture, however little results for anti aging properties. I plan on just sticking with my Advanced night repair for eye by Lauder.
Lipstick -Estee Lauder - Pure Color Lipstick- Tiger Eye

Put concealer on your lips first and then add Estee's in Chocolate or American Beauty's liner in Burgundy. Then add Tiger eye lipstick and witness the perfect bronze nude lip to match your smokey eye. ENjoy!
Scrubs -American Beauty - Soft Glow Gentle Body Polisher

I purchased this for the sheer light scent. the fact that it exfoliates in the shower is an added plus! I didnt need to apply lotion immediately after the shower since this product really hydrates. Great product at a great price!
Eyes -Flirt - Clear Deal 3-in-1 Lash Glosser/Primer/Brow Groomer

What a great 3 in 1 product. Really does what it says and cheaper than the additional primer and seperate brow groomer I currently use. Love it!
Eye Shadow -Flirt - Dreamy Eyes Eyeshadow in Glamourazzi
dslloyd 11/28/2004 7:27:00 PM
as already mentioned, glamourazzi is the EXACT color as mac's trax. i also own trax and took it with me to the flirt counter and swiped them both on my hand. same color, but mac's pot is easier than flirt's bulky case, so i will stick with mac's. another same product is mac's teddy eyeliner is flirt's brownie point. the company that makes flirt also makes mac so there you go!
OK >> found my holy grail foundation ..too bad not earlier in life. I received a sample of Voile Universal Ultra Sheer in Cannelle. I was very hesitant as the sales girl said yes it will blend with my NW43 skintone. I must has checked my face in every light that day because I couldnt believe how my skin did not change color and this is the sheerest but with a hint of color foundation I have came across. Thank god my color was on Ebay and I won it since I did not want to spend the retail price. My foundation search ends! YAHOO!
I also received a sample of this from the EL counter. I can't stand liquid foundations because they all feel heavy from all of the lines out there. Ideal Matte did exactly that, stayed matte for my normal/combo skin all day long and I didnt feel it on my skin either. I am still using the sample as a little covers half of the face.
Eye Shadow -Estee Lauder - Pure Color eyeshadow in cubes
dslloyd 11/16/2004 4:10:00 PM
I read some complaints under various headings for EL Pure Color shadows..OK Ladies ...all of the complaints on this eyeshadow would be eliminated with technique training. First you need EL's shadow stay foundation stick. Second, you apply the light shadow on first, patting the powder, not brush strokes. Watch how the color magically appears on your lid. Then take the dark shadow and do the same with the crease. VIOLA! Sexy, smudgeproof, last all day, shadow. Use the eyelid foundation stick with your shadow and you will not be disappointed! EL's cube packaging for their eyeshadows are luxurious and superior with a handy round mirror to apply one eye at a time. I mix my eyeshadows to come up with new colors. Found my Holy Grail shadows and will NEVER SWITCH!!
