Valentino V is everything I wanted Pink Suger to be but wasn't! Sweet and Sophisticated without being too overwhelming! I feel on "TOP OF THE WORLD" when I wear this fragrance! I love to lightly mist this in my hair! I just cannot get enough of this irresistible scent!

Laura Geller's Blush N' Brighten, Golden Apricot, is as BOLD, as it is BEAUTIFUL. The array twists of colors, peach, gold, bronze, and pink shimmers, is definitely not for the faint of heart! This truly is the "MOTHER LODE," of blushes! LOVE!!!
Blush -Laura Geller - Blush n Brighten Pink Grapefruit

I'm not quite sure where to begin describing this incredible new amazing blush in Pink Grapefruit from Laura Geller. WOW! This actually becomes "ONE" with my complexion. I've never seen or had anything like it! I'm just in awe, everytime I see the way it makes my skin just luminate with softness, exuding the look of romance and femininity. The color reminds me of a sandy nude beach with a twinkling pink lustre. I am sure this is on its way to becoming the most wanted beauty product ever!
Moisturizers -Christian Dior - Capture Totale Multi-Perfection Creme

First of all I do NOT have sensitive skin. Though I cannot comment on the long term benefits of this product, since I only had a sample packet, what I can tell you is, that my skin burned like fire! I could not rinse this off my face fast enough! And the perfume in this Multi-Perfection Creme is too much! So glad I didn't have to put out the expense! Thank goodness for samples!
I received a sample of this with my Ferris/Sloane Lip Gloss purchase. Tarte's Primer Clean Slate, or, as I like to call it, "Face Therapy" is fantastic! I love the fact that it is NOT tinted! It's silicone-based and is packed with avocado oil to moisturize, and echinacea, rosemary, & hibiscus oils to soothe. My face feels completely rejuvinated and renewed with a wonderful calming sensation. It makes your skin look and feel like satin. I have absolutely no oily residue afterwards with the use of this product, as others have claimed. And if you find that it's balling up, make sure to apply a good moisturizer first, then give it another try. For reference, I use Philosophy's The Supernatural Mineral Foundation in Natural. My skin is combination/oily T-Zone, and I'm prone to break-outs. I can only compare Tarte's Clean Slate with Philosophy's Poreless, Flawless. First and foremost it's not tinted, unlike Poreless, Flawless. Tinted primer's are not supposed to interfere with the color of your foundation. But, I can tell you from experience, they do. I seem to get an orange tinge. They both feel and apply about the same, but my pores are less visable, and the overall appearance of my complexion with Tarte's is undeniably more radiant. Be sure to only use a pea-sized amount, I cannot stress that enough. A little goes a long way! It really is like starting anew!
Palettes -Mally Beauty - Lift Shape and Glow Matte
works 9/27/2006 2:01:00 AM
I love Mally's Shimmer, Shape, & Glow systems. However, I was unsure about her "NEW" Lift, Shape & Glow Matte Palette. It comes in a long pink metal compact with a large mirror and a pink faux suade tie wrap with 2 brushes. One blush brush and a double ended shading and highlighting brush. It comes in two shades, Matte Deep and Matte Light. I bought the Matte Light. There are three shades in each one. A highlighter, a shaper and a glow. My first thoughts on the white highlighter was, it was odd looking, just a soft white matte powder, unlike her traditional shimmers that I'm used to. The shaper in this one seems to be deeper in color. And the glow is a sienna rose color, very natural. I didn't really care for this in the beginning, until I realized how much shimmer I had been wearing throughout the day. I not only wear the white matte lifting powder on my cheekbones, I dust it on my pores, (minimizes them) T-Zone, and brow bones. This really does a great job at brightening up my complexion. I use a light hand when applying the shader, since it is richer in color, I don't want it to look too harsh. The earthy cheek glow has no shimmer to it, but when all three tones are combined, my face looks more radiant and well rested. This is a keeper!!!
Lip Gloss -Jaqua Girls - Pink Buttercream Frosting lipgloss
works 9/22/2006 8:07:00 PM
Another pink gloss that goes on absolutely clear! The scent in this gloss is faint, and the taste is very subtle. Creamier than most glosses, I like to have this on hand when my lips feel dry. Other than that, it's very ordinary. The doe foot on my wand is so thin, it's like applying this gloss with a pointed stick. It scratches! OUCH!!! I received this in a kit, however, I would not repurchase on its own.
Lotions/ Creams -Jaqua Girls - Buttercream Frosting Sinfully Rich Body Butter
works 9/22/2006 8:00:00 PM
Talk about the power of suggestion! I wore this grocery shopping, when I got home I realized I bought a white cake mix with butter cream frosting! This scent is dangerously sinful! I'm absoultely addicted to this fragrance. I like to apply this directly after a shower, It's very rich and creamy. My skin just drinks it up, leaving behind a beautiful sheen of tone and hydration. I have purchased many expensive creams and lotions, but have never come accross a product, such as this, that actually delivers what it promises. The overall appearance in my skin, and the fact it smells so sweet is just an added bonus! I love to surround myself with scrumptious flavorable scents!
Fragrances -Jaqua Girls - Pink Buttercream Frosting Body Mist

This fragrance smells sooo delicious, it makes me feel especially senseous! I wear this everywhere. I love the way my skin looks and feels more hydrated and toned. I like to layer this with Philosophy's Falling in Love. Great chemistry! I really look forward to venturing into more of Jaqua Girls' fragrances.
Mally's new Wineshine is gorgeous! It's comparable to Prescriptives Meteor, but with more depth and a slight touch of gold shimmer. It comes in a convenient adorable pink lip purse with a mirror on the back. It seems to last longer than most lip glosses. I'm looking forward to collecting more. Mally can't make her products fast enough for me! She's really come a long way, glad to say! Her products are vastly becoming the Escalade of cosmetics! UPDATE: Only 20-30 Applications.
I felt compelled to do a review on this make-up artist hidden secret for a perfect compexion! I found this by accident and I just wanted to share my new HG. I have searched a long time for a powder foundation that was quick and convenient, one that covered well, did not feel or look heavy, was virtually undetectable, and yet provided a nice dewy finish. Easy order, right? Well it is now! This oil free formula won't clog pores, is feather light, and provides perfect coverage in seconds. Instantly covers lines, veins, pores, age spots, freckles, redness, and uneven skin tone. Since I'm prone to break-outs from hormonal changes, I have to be especially careful what I'm putting on my skin. For reference, I wear light, and I'm a 1.2 in BE, and a B/R cool 2 in PX. Lately, I've noticed this has been compared to Prescriptives' New Anywear Multi-Finish Powder Foundation. I tried both, and here is what I found. Although, the Anywear Powder Foundation felt light, it sat on top my skin and was visible. It didn't cover as well, and when I swirled my powder brush into the product it made quite a mess, in that the powder went all over my clothes and make-up counter. It does, however, have an SPF of 12. Clientele's does not. So, I make sure my moisturizer has an SPF in it. The end result, of PX's Anywear Multi-Finish Foundation, was just o.k. I know it has gotten rave reviews, but, personally, I prefer Clientele's Picture Perfect. Not only does the color stay true, it lasts for hours. I feel asleep with it on, and it still looked great! It comes in a little black purse with 2 sponge applicators and an extra fluffy kabuki brush that has a large base. I can actually hold this one without dropping it. You can order this through QVC or Clientele's Web Site, it cost around $35.00. This is one beauty product that is definitely more deserving of attention. I asked my mother how she liked my new foundation? She said, "What foundation? You look like your not wearing a thing! Just perfect skin!"
Mally's New Lipshines are AWESOME! And Pinkshine is the most PERFECT PINK on the planet!!! Since it is my favortie color, I own many, and none compare! First of all, it comes in an adorable pink lip pouch with a mirror on the back, very classy I might add. And finally, a pink gloss that actually shows up on my lips! It's long lasting and looks especially sensual and sexy! Just think pink satin. I have already ordered another tube, I don't want to be without. Mally has really stepped it up with this one! UPDATE: Only 20-30 Applications.
Lip Gloss -Laura Geller - Coffee Talk Lip Parfaits
works 9/20/2006 2:05:00 AM
The one product I can always rely on with Laura Geller is her fabulous lip products. And her Coffee Talk Lip Parfaits are no exception! This tasty trio is special for Laura, in the sense they are some of her favorite essences. They're liquid lipsticks with a subtle kick of flavor. Vanilla, is a delicate shade of shimmery pink/mauve with vanilla essence, Cinnamon, is a wearable red with a spicy scent of red-hots, and Double Espresso, is a rich berry brown with a delicious aroma of your favorite coffee house. All are high shine for glamorous lips. Treat yourself. Enjoy!
Mally's New 3 pc. color collection for Fall is so beautiful. It is my favorite kit! It comes in a soft white pouch with mirrored compacts of both eyeshadow and blush. The eyeshadow duo is a shimmery lilac/pink paired with peach sherbert. The lilac/pink, lighter of the two, is vibrant, thus allowing your eyeliner to appear tight and crisp. When blended with the peach tone, it becomes absolutely stunning, reminding me of a gorgeous sunset! I think I'm drawn to these colors because they are very natural looking, compared to her smokey eye kits, which I also love. The beautifully coordinating blush, Plumb Pretty, is a soft mauve with a subtle hint of shimmer, just enough to give your complexion a healthy glow. Her new launch of Lipshines "Mauvie Star," included with this kit, have a lot more color and staying power! The usual overly sweet taste in her other lip glosses is not as pungent in these. So I can well tolerate them. Actually they are quite nice. Overall, this collection gives an angelic, youthful appearance of health and vitality! When you want to light up, reach for Pretty Lady!!! UPDATE: Only 20-30 Applications of the lipgloss.
Lip Gloss -Prescriptives - Rain Gloss - 05 Cherry Storm
works 8/27/2006 11:29:00 PM
"CHERRY STORM," What a perfect name for this product! A little black dress must-have. This lip gloss is comparable to biting into a juicy marachino cherry, in heavy syrup, only to have a sweet, beautiful, wet lucious red stain left on your lips! As much as I wanted to give this five lippies, I took one off because once you lick your lips, the high shine of the gloss is gone. If you like the taste of cherries, and a natural red stain on your pucker, this is for you!
