Cleansers -Equate - 3-1 Facial Cleansing Towelettes
AutumnBliss 2/28/2003 6:59:00 PM
I bought this at Walmart. It's very similar to Ponds. It did remove my makeup, but I didn't care for the way my skin felt after using these facial towelettes. My face felt slightly coated with something. Anyway, instead of tossing them out, I ended up using them to remove my eye makeup, and then rinsing with water. Not a bad product as far as removing makeup, however I probably won't purchase again.
This mascara just added color to my lashes. It didn't lengthen or thicken them as I expected. The consistancy is rather thin making it a pain to apply. It wasn't long into the day before I had racoon eyes.
Concealers -Revlon - Skinlights Illusion Wand [DISCONTINUED]

I bought this in For All Skin Tones after receiving a $2 coupon for it. I liked this for under the eye, because the texture is so light. I couldn't even tell I was wearing it. Some other concealers look obvious on me, but this didn't. Just a nice smooth application. And the wand makes application a snap. You twist the product up into the brush, and paint it on, then dap a bit with fingers. It's so handy! Another nice product by Revlon.
Described as a mid-toned camel. On me this was more of a taupe-tan. But I still kinda like it. I can wear it over most any lipstick, and It turns into a pretty shade for me. Alone it is a nice nude shade-I think: ) The texture is thicker, and slightly less sticky than MAC's lip glass, so try before you buy on this one, I'm still not completely won over. We'll see !

When I tan I exclude my face, so I opt to use a self-tanner. I exfoliate , apply a light moisturizer, then put a thin layer of this on my face. This is the most natural looking self-tanners I have ever used. Plus- no breakouts! >Really a great product, and worth trying out.

Nice sheer coverage. I got this in shade C, which was a little too light for me. Other than the the shade, I liked this foundation. Neatest packaging, and easy, quick application. This did work well for me during the duration of a full day. I just would like to have this in a dark enough shade. As far as my expectations goes, it's thumbs-up for this sheer coverage foundation, because it did make my complextion look good.
These Andrea false eyelashes in style # 53 are perfect for daytime wear. I own MAC false lashes in Lash 4, they are great, but the style is more for evening. The Andrea lashes are real hair, and good quality. I also noticed that Andrea had more dramatic lashes available. These sell for $2.75. IF you want to give falseys a try- for the price this would be a good opportunity. I found mine at The Family Dollar Store. Sally's Beauty Supply might have them, too.
Lash 4 - I got these for the holidays. I found them difficult at first to apply, but after trial and error,plus the help of a MAC rep. I discovered a great new accessary for special occasions and for evenings out. These were perfect lashes for me once I trimed the width for a proper fit. These make such a great difference in how the eyes look - very beautiful ! If you are a patient individual, give these a try : )
Fragrances -L'Artisan Fragrances - Vanilia [DISCONTINUED]

Unlike all other Vanilla frag. I have tried. NOt to sweet, or overbearing. Faintly vanilla-lovely sensual dry down. On me, "just right" -like Baby Bear's soup. An added bonus-my significant other loves it! TRY before you buy. This is a pricey one.
Love everything about this cleanser. Excellent in removing makeup, and getting your face really clean feeling with out the tight/dry feeling that I have experienced with other cleansers. I heard this had a fragrance to it, but it didn't bother me at all. In fact, I found it light, and refreshing! You get a lot of product, too. And yet it takes so little to get great results. I will be purchasing this cleanser again. A+
I found this to be perfect for my winter foundation. Superb application. I can apply it with the sponge, or my WTF foundation brush. Looks great all day! Love it!
Does not clump & it does seperate lashes really well. After three coats I got the look I wanted. A pretty good drugstore mascara. However, I am still looking for that holy grail.
Great quality & price! I use this to apply liquid & creme to powder foundations. This does such a wonderful job in application. I prefer this way - way over the sponge. It washes out really easy, and continues to stay in great shape. So glad I discovered this foundation brush!
Well, I have always liked the green sleek packaging of clinique. Don't know why; I just do! Anyhow- I like this powder better than the double matte. I apply this with a powder brush over my foundation, and my skin stays matte with the look I want. This can also be used alone as a foundation, but I haven't tried it that way yet. So far so good as a setting powder, and right now my complextion looks great!!

Here I go again, buying another foundation. I have been breaking out lately due to stress, I thinK! Anyway, I bought this to help correct my current skin problem. And I think this makeup is just wonderful. Love the coverage & the way it makes my pores invisible. Oh, and no more zits on my chin ! This is great for troubled skin, It really helped mine : )
