Very pretty in the bottle and that pretty on my nails. I wish the color would appear exactly as it is in the bottle! Not that dark color that has a hint of blue only in daylight... Looks very nice with a shiny top coat though. Not sure if I gonna to repurchase. UPDATE: Ok, I like it a lot with shine top coat!!! :lol:
Powder -Jane Iredale - Amazing Base Loose Finishing Powder

My HG mineral foundation! After using it for half a year my skin got much more clear! But I must say that my skin felt a bit itchy when I started to use it. Now I don't have this problem any more. I have this foundation in Ivory, which is perfect for me, specially in colder days, together with a light bronzer. I'm gonna try it in Bisque now.
I absolutely love this product! Makes my skin look younger and brighter. Doesn't clog my pores. Gives a lot of moisture to my thin sensitive skin and no irritations. Just fresh glowy complexion without greasy shine!
Jeu de Nuit comes in a black matte compact with 4 dark shades: slate grey, charcoal grey, deep brown mocha and very dark brown. I don't really know why I bought this palette... Maybe because of the case only (I have this problem, yes :lol: ). 3 of these shades are too dark for me, so can't really wear them. I find brown shades in this palette difficult to blend - they look dirty on me no matter how hard I try. I haven't tried to combine this Jeu de Nuit with another palette from Jeu de Dames collection - 402 Jeu de Nacres, as Guerlain offers, maybe it would work better. But I find it too expensive to spend so much money on some eyeshadows that need so much efforts to be applied. Well, another waste of money....
Perfect for those with fair skin like me! This palette gives me elegant smoky eyes, not vulgar as with other eyeshadows I've tried. But yes, if you like really pigmented smoky eyes, this product is not for you! With this palette you will get all the shades of smoke, not charcoal black!
A hairdresser used it on my long, dry, highlighted, frizzy hair. This product works! It really does give you soft, smooth, shiny and frizz-free hair after blow dry!
Styling Products -Nivea - Straight & Easy Straightening Balm

I got a sample of this product in some magazine. And I find it doing a really good job! It does everything it says. Straight & Easy Straightening Balm promises to straighten your hair without iron plus to protect from humidity, heat and frizz. You only need to apply it to damp hair and comb through with a wide toothed comb for even distribution and blow dry your hair pointing the heat downwards in the direction of the cuticle of the hair. I didn't even use a round brush (I'm always searching easy ways to do things :P) and I got smooth, frizz-free and straightened hair even the day after! So I had to buy one of these pretty pink bottles, of course :)))
Treatments (Eye) -Garnier - Essentials Regenerating Eye Cream

A really good eye cream for the price! I was suprised, cause usually cheap products don't work for me. This cream makes my fine line disappear. I use it at night and wake up with smooth and nourished skin. Highly recommend it!
Does a great job conditioning my hair (highlighted, long, dry, damaged). I didn't got much of split ends while using it. The only thing I didn't like about it is the fact that I have to use hair dryer or my hair wouldn't look neat.

Didn't work for me together with the same shampoo. My hair (long, highlighted, damaged and dry) got even drier and broke much easier than before.

Eye Shadow -Chanel - Les 4 Ombres - 13 Beiges de Chanel Quad

At last I've found a palette in brown tones that is perfect for me, not too yellow, not too red, not too grey. Easy to blend. Love it!
This palette is so gorgeous! It has iridescent pearly golden white, shell pink, golden turquoise blue and light beige shades that give a shimmering translucite pearl finish.At last an aqua eyeshadow that I can wear! Really beautyful for sunkissed skin and warm summer evenings. Great staying power even in hot weather and with no eyeshadow primer under! Easy to blend. Silky texture. Love the case, too. I'll buy one more palette if I'll find it!
Conditioner -John Frieda - Go Blonder Lightening Conditioner
Arbuz 5/14/2009 7:16:00 AM
What a good product for such little money! I have long, wavy, brittle, dry, highlighted hair with acsess volume on my length (which I hate!). This conditioner gives my hair a lot of healthy shine, makes it straight, sleek, silky, smooth and nourished! I can't say so much about lightening because I got my hair treated with Sebastian Cellophanes in Pearl Blond to banish yellow tones not so long ago. Pity that shampoo from the same range contains SLS and SLES :(( EDIT: I still love it! And I got comments on how nice my hair color has become! :))
After being pregnant I got much more cellulite than I had before pregnancy. And then there was Slimming Spesial on Strawberrynet.com, so I desided to give it a try since it was 50% off. And I'm glad I did! I stopped believe that any cream/gel can help to banish cellulite. But this one helped me to achieve the result that I had before my pregnancy in just one week! I didn't do any spesial exercises. Only grean tee, which I always drink lots of , and walked with my baby every day, as usually :)) I like the light texture, pleasent smell and that the product sinks in easily, without leaving any traces on my clothes.
