Liquid -Sonia Kashuk - Perfecting Liquid Foundation
kittenkisses 5/8/2003 7:53:00 PM
I have this in Cream (MMM dk red/green) The color is a bit too light for me , so I use bronzer afterwards to warm it up. The first time I tried this, I hit the pump one time & it came out so fast. I thought it was way too thin & watery and I would hate it. After I got it on, it looked thick & fake. :( BOOOO! But, the next time I tried it, I hit the pump lightly & got less product, I also used a foundation brush to apply it. The result: beautiful. Looked perfect. I did have to use my conceal stick for under my eyes, but otherwise my complexion was flawless & luminous. (flawless due to the F/B) Lasting power is good, not great. I've not broken out (using for 3 weeks). I do not rec this for anyone with severe acne, scars or very uneven tone- as I do not think it would cover well enough. I have very faint adult acne scars & it covered them fine. I will repurchase. LOVE Sonia Kashuk!
I have this in Sugar Glaze. (MMM dk red/green) Color: Milky, pink nude. Texture: Ulra-thick, super shine. Lasting Power: Excellent. Scent/Taste: Scent is a bit fruity-faint & no tatse. HEY! This is one of the BEST glosses on the market. Why? You ask. Well, I'm going to tell you. First off it's cheap & you get a ton of product. It is just a beautiful, healthy, expensive looking gloss. Having your picture taken? This gloss is gorgeous on film, black & white or color. The lasting power? I've got an example; I applied this gloss minutes before indulging in a martini and it took me 3 times to wash it off the glass later that evening. Next time I'll blot first. MAC girls: do your wallet a favor and at least try this gloss. LOVE!
Blush -Wet 'n' Wild - Silk Finish Blush 831D Pearlescent Pink
kittenkisses 5/8/2003 7:20:00 PM
Color: Sheer pink w/ gold shimmer. Texture: Goes on smooth, blends easily. Lasting Power: Very Good. Scent: None. Woo... you must apply this with caution, this blush can be EASILY over done. However, this blush is gorgeous. Whomever coined it as a Pink Orgasm was right on. I only use this blush for evening. The other night I blended it together with Orgasm- MEOW! Really Pretty! But really this WnW blush needs no help. Highly Rec & will re-purchase. (MMM dk red/green)
Polishes -Wet 'n' Wild - Precious Metals in Pink Shimmer
kittenkisses 5/8/2003 7:11:00 PM
Color: Dark pink/purple, very shimmery Texture: Goes on smooth & even. Finishes nicely. Lasting Power: Good. This is an excellent polish, however it was wat too dark for me. (MMM w/ golden tan) So, I gave it to my friend. This color would be beautiful on darker toned ladies. It just did not compliment me :( BOOOO!!!!! Will purchase again in another color.
I have this in a peach/coral color. Just gorgeous! Very shimmery, lasting power is excellent. Goes on silky smooth. This peach color makes blue or green eyes pop. LOVE! (MMM dk red/green)
Lip Gloss -Mary Kate and Ashley - Liquid Color Ultra Wet Lip Gloss

Le Meow!! I have this in Dazed. Honestly this is just GORGEOUS & looks expensive. Color: milky, nude pink/soft brown. Texture: semi-thick, glossy. Lasting Power: very good. Scent: very faint, if any. This looks just beautiful on my lips, makes them FULL, shiny and velvety. My boyfriend stopped in mid-sentence to say my lips were so f***king sexy last night during dinner. YAEH!!!! I had a fun night. If youre into the nude, milky pink lip- you'll like this. LOVE!
When I first tried this on, I thought OH MY- too much floral- YUCK! However 5 minutes later my nose was in Heaven. This Tiffany is a crisp, refreshing, feminine delight! Makes me feel confident, pretty & smart! hahaha sounds funny- but it's true. My boyfriend (who is very particular to perfumes) adores it! I was shocked. Pure Tiffany is a keeper. This makes a great gift. Even if they dislike the perfume, the blue box, white ribbon and Tiffany & Co. logo is enough to make any woman feel special. As we all are. LOVE!
Awesome product. I have medium length hair & I use this just to keep my hair smooth & set my style. This wax (they shouldnt call it that, as there's no wax) melts away at my fingetips & goes onto hair sliky smooth. Washes away easily, No build-up problem, light scent & affordable. These come in a "Take Aways" version for carrying it with you. Which is what I have (costs 99 cents!). A small blue tin, perfect for my purse. LOVE!
I like this cleanser well enough. I only use it for when I am dead tired after work & want to get to bed ASAP. It removes makeup effortlessly & rinses away clean, leaving my face without that "tight & dry" feeling. Has a very light, subtle mango scent (i love mangos!) Overall, I like this for a quicky cleanser & I rec to it anyone, however, it bothers my friend's eyes, but not mine, also makeup & whatnot will gather around the sides- turn the stick upside down to rinse it clean. (MMM combo)
I have this in Neutral. Hmmm... This foundation did not at all live up to it's reputation for me :( It didnt blend well into my skin, made my complexion look tired & dull. Sunk into fine lines & melted away mid-day. BOOOO!!!! I love Almay & will continue to purchase the line- just not this particular foundation. (MMM combo)
My HG "really clean" shampoo. I have color treated hair & I was always seeking a shampoo that would "really clean" my hair without stripping the color & making my mane look dull. A friend turned me on to this & I love it. I use it once a week or so. It leaves my hair clean, shiny & fresh, without disturbing my color. YAEH! I love the scent also, makes me feel so girlie & young. heehee :)
Moisturizers -Eucerin - Extra Protective Moisture Lotion SPF30

I use this with Clean & Clear Dual Action in the AM. I really like this moisturizer. It's light, abosorbs quickly & keeps my face hydrated throughout the day (however late in the day I become a bit shiny) Ive had no breakouts (using for 3 weeks). Will continue to purchase. I'm a combo complexion.
I am highly impressed with this mask. When I applied it to my face, it was so creamy it felt like moisturizer. It washes off so easily. Left my complexion soft & really clean. Really nice product. I still like my QH- Mint Julep(although it leaves my face tight & a bit dry), so I will alternate bewteen the two.
I like this MUCH better than St Ives. The grains are much smaller & this washes away faster. Leaves my skin ultra smooth. I do not reccomend this for anyone with sensitive skin, could be too harsh. But, otherwise this scrub replaces my St Ives & Philosophy's The Greatest Love. NICE find! LOVE!
Lip Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Cococare Cocoa Butter Lip Balm

The best lip balm I've purchased in awhile. This balm melts into my lips, keeps them hydrated, glossy & healthy. Lasting power is quite good. Smells & tastes of cocoa. GREAT find at 99 cents. LOVE!!!
