Skincare - Face -Estee Lauder - Take It Away total make up remover

I will be purchasing bottle number 2 soon! I like to double clean as another reviewer mentioned ..I use this removal like cold cream, except for the eye (stings) Take it Away lasts a good 4 months so the price is worth it! Recommend!
clump, flakey ..terrible. Will just stay clear of any maybelline mascara. Kohl's Flirt line has a great mascara at a cheap price. It's the same as MAC's.

My friend who is the counter manager for EL gave me a jar sample of this cream. She said that she applies it to her neck and cleavage for silky feeling and youthful appearance. Been using it for a month and love the results. EL is brilliant!
Moisturizers -Estee Lauder - Future Perfect anti wrinkle

I receive a sample of this EL future perfect cream...I just finished my EL Daywear and needed something for combo skin by EL for day with SPF. Can't wait for the lotion to come out late fall ...but just a small dose of this cream still controls skin and hydrates. Very pleased and will continue using my 2 sample jars until the lotion version comes out!
I have been using this foundation for a month and its great! Being african american ..finding shades for the face can be difficult. I had to find this product in Tawny at a Target in the next town over but worth it. I use this for doing my face after the gym, on weekends ..(leave the good stuff for work) and when I travel as I dont mind losing my cheap products. My combo skin remains shine free and matte during the day. Lightweight texture but still covers. Packaging does not bother me as I dont tote the product with me whereever I go ...Recommend!
This will be going back to Target ...just as everyone has stated ..too drying. I wish it had a glossy coat to it then it would be perfect as the color does stay put.
Lipstick -L'Oreal - Endless Lipstick in Extreme Spice
dslloyd 9/12/2004 4:04:00 PM
OUTSTANDING! This color is awesome ..brown with a hint of red ...stayed on longer than expected. very creamy in texture while providing a slight sheen so lips don't look dry! Recommend!
Lancome's version is my favorite strictly for the bigger color selection. I have snapshot and that's a hot hot hot color on all skin types and hair color. Can't describe the color ..it's a swirl mix. Problem is you can get a shocking result if you apply too much on your finger. The third round ..I used a cotton ball and that helped tone it down. Compact same size as their eyeshadow singles so very portable!
I only purchase this shampoo to clean my makeup brushes with since it removes residue. Works great and is affordable!
Conditioner -Schwarzkopf - Bonacure repair conditioner

awesome line of products! I purchased this along with the repair treatment shampoo and the big sexy hair shine hairspray. My hair looks and feels amazing! i will never stop purchasing! Highly recommend!
Liquid -Estee Lauder - So Ingenious Liquid Foundation SPF 8

This was heavy after an hour of application. Shine breakthrough even with Lancome's T Control gel underneath. Took back to Nordstrom :(
I am on my second bottle (purchased it brand new from ebay) and this product is just great. The pump design is the reason why I get it along with the 3 in one ease ..cleanser, removal, and tones. **EDIT*** I have decided to stick with EL toner for combo skin since it is not drying.
Powder -Lancome - Dual Finish Versatile Powder Makeup
dslloyd 8/15/2004 12:20:00 PM
I have mixed views on this Dual Finish. THe formual is sold as okay for all skin types. I am normal/combo and it looks great when first applied and the thickest version i can find ..but if I dont add Lancome's T controle underneath to stop shine ..my face is an oil slick by 10am. I love the light scent and how I can add layers and it does not look caked on like mac's studiofix does on me. I have returned this item over 2 times only to come back and purchase it because i cant find another thick non cake version. I took of a lippy for the sponge you are supposed to carry during the day as it does not hold the powder well.
This lip treatment was used on me during a Lancome beauty event and I immediately noticed how my lips were not chapping or flaking as they normally do. Lipstick went on smooth and lasted longer. I purchased the easy pump dispender lotion and applied 1 small squirt before bed. Lips were again ...smooth and not chapped. I have been using this for 2 months and have never been happier. I notice that it sells brand new on Ebay for 15.00 as I will repurchase on that site since the lotion retails for 30.00
