I have this in Star Light and it is my HG wear it every day shade. Around the time Revlon launched the Skinlights line they released an LE polish called Light, this is Light but even better. In the bottle this is a sort of pinkish brown and shimmery. On me the colour doesn't show up but it does compliment my skin tone so it just makes my nails look fabulously healthy, MNBB. Revlon's Light was a bit too pink, I much prefer the effect Star Light gives. Just super healthy looking nails and the shimmery flash is really pretty but not OTT. It applies perfectly, it's not streaky or clumpy and you only need one coat. It lasts longer than most ds polishes I've tried and it dries FAST!
Eye Shadow -Max Factor - Earth Spirits Eyeshadow in Inca Bronze
savansa 9/19/2005 7:42:00 AM
This shadow is ok, it doesn't suit my colouring so that's why I'm giving it a lower score. I'm cool toned with blue eyes and I find this shadow shows up too golden, even a bit orangey, on me. I was hoping the contrast with my blue eyes would make them pop but actually the opposite happens, it makes my face look washed out and my eyes look smaller. It is a very lovely colour in the pot but on me it looks awful. If I use it very lightly as an accent in the corner of my eye I can get away with it but I can't use it as a wash. If you're cool toned I would avoid this.
Toners -Unlisted Brand - Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar

I don't have Bragg's available to me so I'm using an organic acv I found at the health food store here. I love this so much! I apply it full strength with a cotton ball but I think I'll try diluting it because it really really REALLY stinks and the stink lasts hours. It's so smelly I feel self consious in public, especially since my SO was on the opposite side of the room and commented he smelled something foul but couldn't put his finger on what it was. I apply it after he's left for work and pray the smell has dissipated by the time he's home, lol. I can't give this stuff up though because it's performed miracles on my skin. My skin smoother, clearer, and more radiant than it's ever been. I have 30 something combo skin and the apples of my cheeks are usually so dry I have to pat a heavy night cream on them during daytime. This toner has helped my oily T zone and has improved the condition of my cheeks at the same time. I don't know how that's possible but I'm extatic!
Scrubs -St. Ives - Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control
savansa 9/6/2005 8:38:00 AM
This is way too harsh on my face but I love it as a body scrub. This is the only thing that's successfully gotten rid of the annoying red bumps on my upper arms which I have had since as long as I can remember. I also like to gently exfoliate my legs with this before I shave and I haven't had an ingrown hair since. Absolutely one of the best ds products out there.
This is a nice, rosy, creamy, sheer lipstick. Despite it being part of the Glam Shine line it isn't especially shiney but that's a big reason why I bought it, I wanted something sheer and natural with no shimmer or glitter. With a natural cheek it was exactly mlbb but when I put on a little bronzer the lip colour turned purpley on me. I took off a lippie for the purple incident and because I paid 11 euros which is ridiculously expensive.
Lotions/ Creams -Palmers - Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula
savansa 8/25/2005 7:17:00 AM
I wasn't to impressed with this one. It's very greasy and didn't sink into my skin. The cocoa smell is quite fake and lingers all day. I only use this when I have very very dry winter skin, and even then I only wear it at night before I go to bed so I can wash the film off in the morning. There are better lotions out there for sure.
Lotions/ Creams -Dove - Intensive Nourishing Lotion
savansa 8/25/2005 7:10:00 AM
Lovely clean smell. So deeply moisturizing and feels great on. I find so many super moisturizing creams (like body butters) leave a sticky, tacky film behind but this just makes my skin soft and comfortable. I will absolutely repurchase again.
Palettes -Revlon - Skinlights Custom Lip Colors in Topaz
savansa 8/24/2005 11:43:00 AM
Nice colours, particularly the glaze and the darker colours. Unfortunately it doesn't last, even after a cigarette it's all but completely gone. I believe it's been discontinued but I would't repurchase anyway.
This is very moisturizing and keeps my fly-aways down so I'm very pleased with that. I find I don't even need to use a hair serum after washing with this. I didn't give it 5 lippies because I find I need to wash my hair everyday if I'm using this because the next day I'm a grease ball when usually I can skip a day from washing my hair.
