Eyeliner -Bourjois - Colorissimo Double Color Eye Pencil
melmel 11/19/2002 6:50:00 AM
finally a Bourjois Product that I really like!! I have brown/gold pencil. It glides on smooth and I like the softness of the pencil- it does not tug my eyelid. I use the pencil like any other brown eyeliner and have not really picked up on the goldish hue but it is a good pencil for the price.
I have pink fizz which I use with the Umber lip pencil. The glossy color I use quiet frequently esp. over Bauble lavish lip color. The darker color gives a nice stain to my lips. I would definetly pick this one up when I run out.

I am very upset they are discontining this product. I have been using it for more than a year and absolutely love it. It gives enough coverage without that feeling like you have a mask on your face. Plus the stuff lasts a really long time. I am happy that I have three spare tubes at home but when I finish them up, it is going to be a problem......
Lip Gloss -Clinique - Glosswear for lips in Kissyfit

I really like this pink- with just the right amount of shimmer. I recieved it with a GWP and ended up buying a full sized tube. I am on my second one and use it over Too Faced Pretty Pretty Princess- it gives a nice pinky color to my lips. The taste is not that great.
Lip Gloss -Clinique - Glosswear for lips in Juicy Apple

Juicy apple was really the first red lip gloss that I have ever purchased. The saleslady said the color is subtle and not overwhelmingly red. She was right. I wear this color a lot and i will use this over my benetint and it imparts a nice healthy glow. The taste is ok. I just want to know why I can't find these glosses at the airport????
I just don't understand the hype. I remember reading when I was younger that this was Madonna's favorite mascara. It does nothing to make my lashes longer. Not worth it, even for the cheap price!
Misc Beauty Tools -BeneFit Cosmetics - Eyelash Curler

I really like this eyelash curler. I bought Shu's after all that hype in the magazines and at Sephora's but I ended up ditching the thing (which was not so cheap). I spoke to a salewoman at sephora's and she said Shu's curler was bigger than my actual eyes and she recommended Benefit. I like the curl and the fact that the spare sponge is attached to the curler, so you don't lose it.

I bought this because I love Benefit and the packaging is so cute. But I barely used this much less knew what to do with it. I found the pencil to get all dirty. A waste of money!
I love this product. I have seen nuxe around in France and then being sold on Sephora.com so I bought yet another product. I am such a junkie! I use the oil on my hair (damp or completely dry) and it gives my hair a nice sheen and makes my hair so soft. It is also good to rub on your body after a shower to also give some sheen and sparkle to your skin. It is a bit pricey- about $34 dollars on Sephora.com. It is cheaper here in Europe and I will definitely stock up. Also a little drop goes a long way/
I have this one clear. I like the smell and taste but you if you want to layer this over lipstick you get end of coloring brush. My clear lipgloss has this weird color hue. I prefer the mac lipglass in clear because of the squeezable tube and you can use your fingertip to apply. For an overall lip gloss it is ok. I buy Bourjois because I am in France right now but I do not really understand all the hype.

I was not really impressed with this product. I did not really notice any difference in my eyelash length and I think I have the puniest lashes! Since I am living in France, I was hoping I would love this product so I can bring back tons when I leave. But it nothing great. I will stick to Lancome Deficinils until I find something else.
