Treatments -Linda Sy - Facial Lotion with Lactic Acid
CarolynF 3/2/2005 8:28:00 AM
I received this product as a sample and have been using it for 2 weeks. It does not break me out, which is awesome...but it also does nothing else. Very "lac-lustre" product in my opinion. If someone has sensitive skin, this may work for them. My skin is resilient and can take a lot more than this product offers. No offensive smell and the consistancy is thin.
Ahhh, love! I got this shade in a swap (waves to JenE619!) What a fabulous pinky chocolate shade this is!! Matte without looking drying and very pigmented on my lips without being dark. This is dolce vita with a brownier and deeper kick to it! If you wanted dolce vita to be a little darker, a little more dramatic, with a little more punch....pigalle is for you!! I am a blonde, blue eyed, neutral to cool toned FFF.
Scrubs -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash 60 sec. Mask Scrub [DISCONTINUED]

Rockstar/Awesome!!! This stuff is the best mask/scrub for skin that needs to be exfoliated from acne treatments. This got rid of stubborn flaking from acne treatments and blackheads as well. It has 1% Salicylic acid and the scrubbing grains are pretty tough, so sensitive skin beware!
Eyeliner -Laura Mercier - Kohl Pencil in Brown Copper

Gorgeous and shimmery! Just as the name states: Brown Copper! This color is awesome for blue eyes and I think it would be pretty on any eye color. The shimmery in it seems to bring out the shade of the iris of the eye. Would look AWESOME on hazel or green eyes, IMO. A must have for ladies that love brown and neutral shades.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Super Lustrous - Shine That Pink

LOVE SL glosses!! I have so many colors and I love their texture, moisturizing quality, and colors. I prefer these over all my high end brands any day of the week. Shine that Pink reminds me of MAC sweetie lustre in gloss form. A pretty girly pink shimmer that is not too over the top pink. A must have for pink lovers everywhere!!
Cairo (IMHO) is NARS version of Stila puck and MAC satin taupe. It is slightly pinker than puck and slightly lighter than satin taupe, but it is a shimmery taupe shade that is in the same family as satin taupe and puck. Now, with that said....I like cairo the best of all 3. I can use in on my lid or in my crease. It also looks fab as a crease into the lid shade. It makes my blue eyes pop! I am an FFF with pink undertones to my skin and I love cairo! So versatile!
Edie is a great off white with shimmer. Great to use as a highlighter or as a base shade alone. The staying power is great and it goes with so many other shadows. If you are looking for a great off white shade with some shimmer, EDIE fits the bill!
Lotions/ Creams -Aveeno - Daily Moisturizing Lotion

A wonderfully perfect moisturizer for dry, itchy, sensitive winter skin. It contains colloidal oatmeal, which soothes the skin and aids in minimizing itching and dimethicone 1.25%, which is a great ingredient for moisture and aiding in skin relief. I use this on my hands and itchy winter legs and it helps me 100%. My son gets really dry in the winter and this is the only product I can use on him that does not irritate his sensitive skin. LOVE!!
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Super Lustrous lipgloss in Glossy Rose [DISCONTINUED]

This is a beautiful bronzy pink shade. Very neutral and pretty. I really think many ladies, regardless of skin tone, can wear this. Great alone, over a lipstick or liner, I love to wear this alone but when I want extra "WOW" I wear it with MAC cedar lipliner. It is awesome and soooo pretty! A must have neutral!! I am a cool-neutral toned, blond/blue-eyed FFF.
I am a lorac color brow wax convert! I have repurchased Smashbox browtech many times but decided to try the brow wax due to raves on the board. You ladies are right!! This is $16.00 for a color and wax in one and a little goes a long way and lasts all day! I use blonde and the color is perfect. I was previously using SB in blonde and I always ran out of the color way before the wax. This product definately gives you the best of both worlds. I am hooked!
This is a wonderful product for straightening my hair is making it healthy looking. My daughter has a ton of very curly long hair and it leaves it wavy looking and shiny. This is worth the $$ and a little goes a long way.
This is a great volumizing shampoo that will not dry your hair out. my hair is color-treated and highlighted but fine as well. I need volume without wrecking my hair and this does the trick for me. Kenra products are fabulous and this one does not dissapoint. Smells great too!
This is a great duo! I agree if I am unsure what to put on my eyes, I can grab bellissima or All About Eve duo. This is a pretty cool toned off white shade with shimmer and a true matte taupe shade. I also use this duo with all about eve to "add some wow" for a great night look! I am a blue-eyed, blonde FFF.
Powder -Jane Iredale - Amazing Base Loose Finishing Powder

I have mixed emotions on this product. First, the texture is very finely milled and gives your skin a smooth/flawless look. Second, it is WAY less shiny than my beloved BE. But Third, it is hard to wash off. I use Philosophy Purity made simple and it cleans off my skin so well, but even it could not clean my skin thoroughly after wearing it all day. It also broke me out. If you don't have super break-out prone skin, this may work for you. After a month of trying it, I had to give up and my skin cleared up. It is very finelly milled and provides nice, matte coverage. I wear BE 2.3 and in JI I wear satin.
This is my 2nd NARS duo and I am not disappointed yet! The darker color is a smoky, gray/plum and the light color is a cool off white/gray neutral. Matte and pretty! Very flattering to blue eyes and I can see brown eyes looking fabulous in it as well. Worth the $28.00 price IMHO. An easy eye look for day or night. Love it! If you like cool colors that are more a neutral/cool, this is for you!! II am a blonde, blue-eyed, neutral to cool toned FFF.
