Cleansers -Guerlain - Issima Foaming Milky Cleanser
ldylushess 3/23/2004 4:58:00 PM
IT IS A GOOD CLEANSER... foams very well>> very thick... but it is quite heavy with fragrance. the cleansers are probably still the best bet for the guerlain line...to me.
Lotions/ Creams -Perlier - White Almond Body Creme
ldylushess 3/16/2004 9:07:00 PM
I really love Perlier and Ellaria... i think they make superior products,... their lotions and moisterizers are so ricH.. THEY DONT BUDGE!! plus they sink into the skin without being greasy or sticky. this is one of the best moisterizers i have ever used>> I still am on the fence about the smell, but the texture is the best... so i would definately buy again. It is $30 a jar but very worth it.
i bought the cream version.. and it is wonderful... very cheap considering it is a big tub for under $10... and it does help keep the spots and oilies at bay... i use it under my other moisterizer or sunscreen... it will take me forever to use .. but i would buy it again.
LOVE THIS!!!! like everytime i go to the drugstore i have to buy another one, i have one everywhere- at home, at work, in my bag... love it it is probably one of the best lip moisTurizers ever!! my other fav is Prada. But this is soo cheap, it last forever and it gives a great tingle. I only tried it recently .. after seeing it on the show Stripped on the Style network.. i thought i'd give it a go.. since i have like the driest lips in the free world... but i wasnt expecting anything... but WOW!! it is totally awesome!! i hope this thing is around forever!!
Liquid -La Prairie - Skin Caviar Concealer Foundation SPF15
ldylushess 2/25/2004 9:41:00 PM
i like this foundation... It really is like whipped butter... so smooth, but it didnt cover as much as i expected it to. but it is still quite good, I got the creme peche... which is a light/Medium with some peach undertones... i do have to say the color selection is very limited here, which is a shame... because you cant get a more luxurious foundation. the packaging is also soo cute>> built in concealor and a stand and a brush... worth the $150 ? iTHINK so.... well something you have to try anyway
i love this product!! it is great cuz u can build coverage and blend easily... with out feeling soo heavy or looking all masky. i love how it does make me glow, and it lasts pretty well too, even with my oily /combo skin. love this soo much>> one of my FAVS!
Highlighters -Chanel - Satin de Chanel Golden Dream
ldylushess 1/22/2004 8:57:00 PM
I HAD HIGH HOPES FOR THIS... IT LOOKED SO APPEALING IN THE MAGAZINES. SO I BOUGHT THIS AT NEIMANS FOR $50, IT LOOKED SWEET IN THERE- A SOFT PEACH....THE PACKAGING WAS TYPICAL UNDERSTATED BUT SOPHISTICATED CHANEL. IT COMES WITH A LITTLE POUCH AND A BRUSH. SO ADORABLE! YET IT WASNT AS IMPRESSIVE AS I WOULDVE THOUGHT... I CAN BEARLY SEE THE COLOR AT TIMES ON MY LLL SKIN. AT LEAST NOT THE WAY A $50 HIGHLIGHTER SHOULD... I WOULDNT BUY THIS AGAIN... SO UNFORTUNEATE!
Concealers -Shu Uemura - Mark Cealer [DISCONTINUED]
ldylushess 1/20/2004 6:20:00 PM
I HAD BOUGHT THIS A WHILE AGO AND I ACTUALLY DIDNT USE IT FOR A WHILE...BUT I STARTED TRYING TO WEAR FOUNDATION AND CONCEALER BUT NO POWDER. AND SO IDEFINATELY NEEDED A CONCEALER TO STAY PUT AND THAT IT DOES! THIS IS SO AWESOME WHEN IT COMES TO STAYING POWER PROBABLY THE BEST I HAVE EVER TRIED. SUCKS THOUGH BECAUSE I FIND IT VERY HARD TO FIND... I HOPE THEY DIDNT DISCONTINUE IT! THAT WOULD BE A TRAVESTY! I NEED IT TO COVER MY OLD BREAKOUT SPOTS... LOL DEFINATELY ONE OF MY HOLY GRAILS!
YEAH!!! HOLY GRAIL...LOVE THIS CURLER! I LOVED THE SHU UEMURA.... BUT WHEN I WENT DOWN TO GET ANOTHER ..MY LOCAL SEPHORA WAS SOLD OUT.. SO I GOT THIS ONE INSTEAD...AND OMG! I LOVE IT! IT DOESNT PINCH MY ASIAN EYES LIKE THE SHU.... AND IT DOES A GREAT JOB CURLING! PLUS THEY ACTUALLY SELL REFILL PADS. LOVE THIS ONE!

Shampoo -Frederic Fekkai - Protein Rx Reparative Shampoo
ldylushess 10/22/2003 10:25:00 PM
I TRIED THIS FROM A SAMPLE I GOT FROM NEIMANS AND I LOVED IT... THE NEXT DAY MY HAIR WAS SO SOFT.... AND WELL MANAGED ..NO COWLICKS AND KINKS. PLUS THE SMELL IS WONDERFUL... I CAN'T GET MY FINGER ON IT... BUT I LOVE IT! AND IT STAYS ON MY HAIR EVEN TILL THE NEXT DAY... THAT NEVER HAPPENS FOR ME! AWESOME STUFF... KINDA EXPENSIVE $28 FOR 16 OZ... BUT I LIKE IT ..SO SO WHAT?
I AM A PERSON THAT WILL TRY ANYTHING ONCE... AND THIS WAS VERY DISAPPOINTING... IT IS IN A TUBE SO APPLICATION IS EASY.. BUT I FIND THAT THE HOLE IS TOO BIG SO IT DEPOSITS TOO MUCH PRODUCT. PLUS I DON'T LIKE THE SMELL... IT IS LIKE A MALTY ORANGE SMELL... AND IT ISN'T AS EMOLLIENT AS MANY OTHER LIP TREATMENTS... FOR $18 , THIS JUST DIDN'T CUT IT FOR ME. i MUCH PREFER PRADA LIP BALM , CUZ MY LIPS ARE HORRIBLY DRY AND HERE IN HAWAII IT IS HOT!!!
Loose Powders -Prescriptives - Traceless Skin Responsive Powder
ldylushess 10/22/2003 10:08:00 PM
I LIKE THIS POWDER... IT IS VERY SILKY AND IS AS THE NAME SAYS.. TRACELESS.... ONLY WHEN I WENT , THERE WAS ONLY 2 SHADES LEFT AND I HAD TO GET ONE THAT WAS LIGHTER THAN MY SKIN BUT IT IS OK ON... I LOVE THE PACKAGING... VERY ORIGINAL... A CONVINIENT WAY OF CARRYING LOOSE POWDER... BUT I DO FIND IT HARD TO POWDER MY NOSE BECAUSE THE PUFF IS RATHER BIG... AND THE PUFF DOES LOOK GROSS AFTER A WHILE ... BUT OVERALL A GOOD BUY.
I got the eyeshadow jewel case instead of the blush , and was told they were the same size. It is a beautiful silver case, very small, and very heavy!! I got it on sale for $40 and you have to buy the eyeshadow separately. It has By terry on the lid and comes with a pick to pop the old refill out and a cute velvety purple bag to keep it in! It is very frivolous but if you are willing to spend on something that is so sophisticated, it is so worth it!
