Lip Gloss -New York Color - Lippin' Large--First Kiss
asaksa 9/21/2009 12:02:00 PM
This is called toffee kiss. Love the gloss! I am not good with gloss normally. I don't buy them because, sometimes they look sloppy. I have large lips. Yet this makes my lips so smooth and feels light not sticky. Tingle sensation and minty. I like the feel. Some may not. I layer lipstick and lip liners underneath. . I'm addicted! And it's cheap! I notice it smooths over my lips very nicely. I like the refined look. Love it!

I bought this after the MUA recommendations. I used to put it on under my eyes before bed. Also, I mix it into foundation to use as an under eye concealer. now i use it as a hair product to defrizz. Oon dry hair i put a dime size amount in my hands a rub them together and lightly work it into my hair and ends. Great product. Better than jojoba oil for the face and hair. And I like jojoba oil. Thanks everyone.
Beautiful new dusty rose plum color. Great on nc40 skin tone
Gorgeous ruby garnet color. A little dark for me.
Look like Chanel's vamp. But cheaper.
I got a prescription on retin-a micro from my doc for adult acne and it works incredible. My face is clear and radiant.. I used retin A 10 years back for the same reason and stopped during my pregnancies. I wear sunscreen often and am not a sun worshiper at all. I go to the beach at 6PM. Anyway, my insurance did not cover it after age 36! it was about $180! Recently, I was in europe and without a prescription I got it for 9 euros ($14). The U.S. insurance companies are pathetic. Anyway people think I am 28 years old until I say I have 3 kids. Then they say I am 32. Let them keep guessing.

SO clean and crisp. It has staying power and the scent does not change much as it wears. Paired with the splash is great for a summer clean scent. I wonder if it would be a good under layer for my Origins Ginger Essence EDT.
My brother loves this one. Simple and it works for him. Begamot, geranium, and Patchouli. An 80's fav that is classic. Pacco raban and Azzaro are similar. Kouros foam ysl is another choice
Very sophisticated and warm. Beautiful. Not sweet. Very crisp. I like the vanilla undertones. My other two frangrances are Prada Infusion d'Iris by Prada and Origins ginger essence.I prefer the toillete instead of the original. I tend to get a headache with the straight perfume. This is a great cold weather choice.

The avocado/lime green and dark green combo works so nicely. Strong pigment so blend well. My dark brown eyes popped in a sophisicated way! I like duos. . .I don't have to guess what works with what.
I love Milani eyeshadows and now I love this blush. I was skeptical it would not show on my NC35 tan skin. I am so surprised that it does give an understated luminous finish.It is a light pink and gold. So pretty.

I would never have considered this peachy/pink crayon as an eyeshadow that is dewy and fresh. It's gorgeous alone or layered with a darker green, plum or brown. It is such a unique and unexpectedly natural color. Cheap and perfect for my yellow, medium tan skin tone. Creamy so it may crease. Yet It still looks good on me. Thanks MUA..
Need to try this! I love bergamot and Mandarin and Rosemary. This is so nice and sophisticated and musky. I hear Agarwood is hard to find. Woody base. Smells wonderful! Intense at first. Top Notes Bergamot, Mandarin, Rosemary . Middle Notes Vetiver, Agarwood . Base Notes Amber, Musk, Mandrake root..
Fragrance -Giorgio Armani - Acqua Di Gio (for men)

A melon or citrus and persimmon. A warm ocean summer scent. For a man who is elegant and understated. As Armani is. This scent is better for my son than my husband.
This reminds me of the ocean with lemon trees and mint leaves waving their scent into the air. Definitely a young man in the summer. Clean and fresh and sporty. Not long lasting though. Just like a summer fling.
