Personal blends conditioner is available at Aveda stores. You can pick two colors and a scent to get customized conditioner. I chose red and light copper to be mixed in 2:1 ratio with water nature scent -which smells just like Shampure shampoo and conditioner. Texture is very light, so it doesn't weigh hair down. Unlike other color deposit conditioner, it can be used daily and lightly conditions hair. It really keeps my dyed red hair vibrant even a month after I dyed it. Amazing. I love this conditioner so much. I want to marry mine.
Palettes -Lancome - Color Focus Palette in 4Glamour
rjulie510 5/4/2005 3:26:00 PM
I bought this eyeshadow quad after a Lancome makeover. Cool silver shade reminds me of MAC electra or Jane Hi Ho Silver. This makes a great base. Purple color is Drama, and it has blue shimmer duochrome. It would go well with MAC vellum eyeshadow or frozen white pigments IMHO. Dark green shade has slight light gold shimmer, and it is the perfect forest green shade. Medium blue shade has gray-base, so it's not very bright. Overall, colors are very pretty, but this quad is definitely for cool-toned coloring. Shadows go on smoothly and lasts all day. It's a fun quad especially for evening out. I'd buy this again if I run out.
Lip Gloss -Prescriptives - Moonbeam Reflective Lipgloss in Twinkle
rjulie510 3/22/2005 10:57:00 AM
I bought this after great Px makeover. It's a sheer rosey pink with beautiful subtle shimmer. Used on its own, it highlights my naturally dark lips. When used on top of other lipstick, it gives shine and sheen. I like this color a lot.
This is one of my all-time favorite nail polishes ever. It's vibrant coral pink with pink duochrome shimmer. It looks good on my pale skin, but I can imagine this color working for tanned skin tones and darker skin tones as well.
Wow. This shine spray mists very finely, so it goes on very evenly. It is very light-weight so it doesn't weigh my hair down. I mostly use this as a finishing product to give my hair shine after flat ironing, but I have also used this as a heat protectant. I simply LOVE this stuff.
I have hint, which is shimmery medium gray, and marabou, which is dark smokey grayish purple. Both have beautiful soft slight shimmer, and I love soft but not greasy texture. It lasts all day, and makes a great base. This product is highly underrated IMO.
Eye Shadow -Prescriptives - Quick Pick Eyeshadow Single SORBET

What a pretty color -it's slightly shimmery raspberry pink that's not too bright. It brightens up my eyes. It goes on evenly and smoothly, and has silky texture. I got this during Px makeover, and I like it a lot. I'd buy this again if I run out.
Makeup Brushes -MAC - #168 Large Angled Contour Brush
rjulie510 2/27/2005 10:23:00 PM
I use 168 mainly for cream blush. It blends cream blush very nicely so I get natural flush instead of looking like I put too much blush on. This brush makes applying blush so easy. Bristles are soft, and it's very easy to control. LOVE IT!
I FINALLY found HG conditioner! I bought this product after reading so many raves on hair board. I am so happy I did! Healing conditioner detangles my hair, moisturizes well, AND leaves my hair soft and shiney without building up. Usually with my dry frizzy hair, conditioner that detangles well do not provide enough moisture, and moisturizing conditioner either doesn't detangle enough or it builds up and breaks out my skin. This conditioner is just SO perfect. My roommate, who has slightly oily wavy hair, tried this conditioner when she ran out of her. She liked it so much that she ordered hers online. Packaging is really cute! Tube is a good idea since it makes product very easy to come out. I seriously think I'd NEVER find a better everday conditioner. And trust me. I've tried SO MANY, both high end and low end. I'd buy this product again and again.
Treatments -L'Oreal - Professionnel Serie Expert Vitamino Color gel masque
rjulie510 1/31/2005 7:28:00 PM
I got Professional Serie Expert vitamino color shampoo, conditioner, gel mask travel set as a gift from my salon. Unfortunately this mask is not as good as I hoped it to be. It has gel-like texture -I almost feel it's too light for a deep conditioner. It sorts of coats my hair, then washes right off, doing not much for my hair. My hairstylist also had a similar compliant -it made her feel like she had no hair. I like L'oreal Professional Serie Expert intense repair mask much better.
Treatments -L'Oreal - Professionnel Serie Expert intense repair Masque
rjulie510 1/31/2005 7:25:00 PM
I had so-so experience with Professional Serie Expert vitamino range (shampoo, conditioner and mask), so I was skeptical when I first saw this product. But my hairstylist AND another stylist at the salon told me pretty much everyone who bought this intense repair mask love this very much. I trusted their judgement, and bought this. It really softens my hair and makes my hair healthy again. I am very pleasantly surprised. It's what I expected from Kenra intensive emollient mask and it wasn't. I don't even need to use a ton, which is a surprise considering how dry my hair is. I will definitely buy this again.
Skincare - Body -NADS - Hair Removal System - No-Heat Hair Removal Gel
rjulie510 1/24/2005 7:35:00 PM
What a waste of money. I bought this after looking at informercial. I followed directions exactly, and tried 4-5 times. It didn't remove a single strand of hair. What a waste of money. I was too young and stupid to believe in that stupid informercial. Save your money and time. This stuff sucks.
Packaging is awful, but don't let the ugly tube fool you. This mascara is awesome! It doesn't clump, and it's not too wet like MAC fiber rich (previous favorite mascara) or too dry like MF 2000 calorie aqualash. It lengthens and thickens my lashes well, and because it seperates my lashes so well, it gives me very wide-eyed look. I like how it is very easy to build on layers if I want super dramatic almost-false eyelashes like look. It holds the curl well, and rich black is very pretty intense black that's very flattering on my dark brown eyes! I think this should be my HG favorite mascara! So glad to find a great mascara for cheap price. I hope they come out with waterproof version for summer.
MAC describes this color as "demure cool pink flush", whatever that means. To me, it looks like neutral medium pink with brown undertones. Despite brown undertone, the color is still very cool-toned and wearable. On my PPP skin, this gives very natural my-cheeks-but-better look. Blushcreme feels gooey on fingers, but it blends exceptionally well, and it is well pigmented. I probably will try more colors later on.
Wow. This smells EXACTLY like yummy creamed coffee. Within minutes it filled my room with yummy scent! A great candle. I think Illuminations candles have better wax and packaging than Yankee Candles. I'd buy this again as soon as I use up.
