I like her ridge filler basecoat. I use some of the sheer nail polish colors, they pretty much all look the same unless you use several coats. I also use her cuticle treatment and it seems to work well. Can't tell if its from that or the Aquaphor healing ointment. There are less expensive brands that work well too so I switch back and forth.
Treatments (Eye) -Mary Kay - Indulge Soothing Eye Mask

I love this stuff......it takes away any puffiness I have under my eyes. Definite HG for me. Not expensive, and you can find good deals on Ebay.
I tried this after all the reviews and it's too drying for my skin. It does work, it definitely works but there are other products that work as well for me.
Blush -Physicians Formula - Mosiac Blush-Blushing Berry

I really like this blush. It gives your skin a nice, natural glow. Easy to apply. Lasts forever! I like the color better than my Lancome blushes. Will definitely repurchase this. I've also used their bronzers and like those as well.
Very nice toner. Does not dry my skin out and works very well. Good price. Will definitely repurchase.
Lotions/ Creams -Eucerin - Aquaphor Healing Ointment

I tried this after reading all the great reviews. It does work really well, even on dry cuticles. It can be a little greasy but it definitely works. I like to put it on at night, it's a little too thick for me during the day.
I wear this all the time and it definitely lasts all day, I rarely have to do touch ups. It's a perfect neutral color. I wear Colorstay sheer pomegrante if I want a little more color. These do not dry out your lips like the Cover girl ones. This is definitely one of my HG's!
Gives great, natural color. I apply it with gloves. Goes on like a moisturizer and looks very natural. If it does rub off on my clothes, which really only happens with light colors, it washes out easily. I will definitely keep purchasing this. You won't be disappointed. I get it from Nordstorms. It's a little expensive, but lasts a long time.....a little goes a long way.
I think this is the best concealer, especially for under the eyes, out there. I have very dark circles and this covers it completely. It's a little expensive, I buy it on Ebay, but it lasts a long time. It stays on all day, no touch ups needed. It's not greasy so it doesn't bother your mascara. You definitely need to moisturize before applying this. Very easy to apply and blend.
Top/Base Coats -Unlisted Brand - INM - Out the Door Top Coat

I like this better than Seche Vite and it works just as well if not better. It doesn't get thick like Seche Vite. It never chips or yellows.
Moisturizers -Marcelle - Hydractive Hydra-Replenishing Cream

Excellent moisturizer for sensitive skin. It works very well and I don't break out from it. Not greasy at all and leaves my skin so soft. I have to order it directly from Marcelle as they do not have it in the US.
Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - Kerasal foot ointment
perfectface 7/5/2009 2:38:00 PM
The best foot cream for dry, cracked heels. A must for sandal weather!
No matter what other facial cleanser I try, I always go back to this! Cleans all makeup off without having to use eye makeup remover. Never breakout from it and isn't too drying.
Easy to apply with no streaking at all. Moisturizes skin nicely. Color is a little light so I use another self tanner to darken the color. Would buy again.
Crème -Illuminare - Extra Coverage Foundation/ Concealer

For those of us without a peaches and cream complexion, Illuminare extra coverage foundation makes you look like you do. Once you get comfortable with the application, there is nothing else like it. It lasts all day, makes your skin look flawless and stays on until you take it off. It has SPF 21 and doesn't cause breakouts. I use a foundation brush to apply, a little goes a long way, and then blend it with a sponge. Florentine fair is a perfect shade for me and apparently their most popular color. Very reasonably priced and you can order directly from Illuminare (www.illuminare.com). You will love this foundation!
