Lip Treatments -Palladio - Herbal Lip Balm - Berry
lmr007 1/25/2012 10:00:00 PM
So glad I found these little gems. I have been crazy trying to find the shades of Revelon lip butters I want (to no avail) and came across these during a stroll through Sally's. I got Berry and Rosey. I LOVE them both. Nice color pay off & they last for a few hours. They are the kind you can feel comfortable reapplying without a mirror. I am very, very happy with these and surprised people aren't all over getting these like the lip butters! As others indicated, the "Berry" color is not berry...it's a creamy pinky peach which is what I was looking for. The Rosey balm is more pigmented and more true to the color shown on the tube itseLf. Both balms are buildable, and stay creamy for hours. I have the Palladio rice paper for blotting my T zone, a few eye pencils that I love, now the lip balms which are fabulous. I'm excited to get even more items from this line now!
My favorite drugstore foundation. I have combo skin and this is remarkable for T zone oil control. Like the countless others have said, it will make you look flawless and it is light. I am in my early 40's who people pin for in my 30's...this foundation makes me look & feel 10 years younger. No lie. The color match for me is perfect, as well. I cannot say enough...and I am picky about foundation. Get it, you will not be sorry.

HG shine control product for me. It provides my mid-day matte finIsh. I keep them in my car, bathroom and purse. I have them in translucent, as I am very fair...they are perfect!
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Summer Fruit
lmr007 1/22/2012 2:59:00 AM
Love the packaging. This product has so much potential (in additon to some major marketing, I see), but it dries out my lips. When I smelled it, I can't believe I'm saying this, but it smelled like cat urine. Thank God for MUA, because other reviewers also noted the cat urine smell...so I know I'm not crazzzy. I mean, summer fruit shouldn't even remotely bring to mind cat urine, you know? Anyway, I love the packaging and I wish I loved the product. I have had much, much better product a lot, lot cheaper. PS. The lemon smells better, but strong...and dries out my lips as well.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes
lmr007 1/22/2012 2:31:00 AM
I love Neutrogena products. You can expect quality, every time. I had high expectations with these wipes, but I am really disappointed. First of all, ladies, be mindful when using them in your eye area, like others have indicated. I would not characterize my skin as sensitive, but every time I use these around my eyes (even gently) my skin around the eyes hurt within a few hours. Is it the alcohol in them?? I never have sensitivity issues with products. Also, the adhesive top of the package no longer works...without that, the towelettes would dry out...so I had to put the package in a zip lock plastic bag. I love the fresh fragrance & the feel of these towels, so this is a buzz kill. I won't repurchase. Remember, be careful around your eyes if you have these.

I have been in a love affair with this fragrance forever. I started wearing this in college, 20 years ago when a friend of mine gave me a bottle, her sister was a promoter for it. I was instantly in love and it became my signature scent. It baffles me that anyone wouldn't love this, but everyone has different chemistry. If I had to describe this floral in one word it would be: Elegant. We are now 20 years later (where did the time go?), and it is still one of my top 5 favorites. A bottle lasts a long time. The last time I purchased it, was at one of Jessica's stores right off Rodeo Drive about 6 years ago and it still smells fresh. A perfect choice for spring and summer!
My powder liner (that I use wet) for the last several years. It lasts all day, no problemo. There is nothing that I don't like about it. It is not the blackest of black, in my opinion but it will make your eyes pop.
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow in Sterling
lmr007 1/22/2012 1:23:00 AM
Such a lovely combination of grey and silver. Very easy to build and looks wonderful in the crease. Definitely one of my all time favs from Bobbi Brown. Gunmetal pencil is an excellent compliment to this color wash. : )
I've been wearing this blush for ages...and I always end up back to it after I explore new colors. It's definitely one of my "go to" pieces in my collection. I can always be sure it will go with whatever eye or lip color(s) I am wearing. You can't go wrong with Mocha for all of the reasons stated by everyone else. It's simply perfect.
Concealers -Maybelline - Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles
lmr007 1/21/2012 10:15:00 PM
Wow! I am in love with it. I just turned 42 and I am seeing dark circles. This is working as well if not better thanBenefit Eye Bright, and I was not expecting that. I have a more lit from within look with this in my eye area than Eye Bright and it is a smoother application than Eye Bright, as well. Thanks to MakeupByTiffanyD on YouTube for the awesome suggestion!
Lipstick -L'Oreal - Infallible Le Rouge - Charismatic Coral 421
lmr007 1/21/2012 8:59:00 PM
Very, very pretty coral! I like the Infallible Le Rouge lipsticks, I feel like they stay on well and I like the finish.
Starting to get more and more into red. I think this one is becoming one of my favorites as it doesn't look way to bright on me, and has good staying power.
Beautiful wine color! Can't beat it for 99 cents!
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Idol Eyes - Creme Shadow Pencil - Pixie

I have been using this for years, and I love the color with my blue eyes as a highlighter and in the corner of my eyes, as well. A touch high on your cheekbone is beautiful, too!

Like every other reviewer, I was very attracted to this in the store. Like everyone else, it creased after it was applied. I am going to take the suggestion of another reviewer and glide just a little gently to avoid that issue if the mood strikes me. I don't anticipate purchasing this one again.
