I love this eye shadow. It's very similar to GoLightly, but has a tint of green to it. It's a darkish metallic brown/green.

I really love this! For once, the ad looks just like the result you get, major shine! It smells like berries too, yummy. This is a medium to dark berry color, super shiny, love it!
Lipstick -NARS - Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Sex Machine

I really love this color, it's a medium to light pink that goes on creamy. My only problem with it is that it becomes sort of drying and doesn't last long on the lips. I'm anxious to try other colors
Eyeliner -Yves Saint Laurent - Eye Pencil in Shimmering Burgundy

This is a light (i actually wish i were a bit darker), burgandy color, nice for a neutral daytime look. I don't know why they say it's "shimmering" though, b/c I don't see any shimmer.
This is a medium slate grey with no shimmer, very pretty for creating a smokey eye.
Eye Shadow -Stila - Shadow Pots Eye Mousse in Honey
DanielleD 3/13/2005 5:31:00 PM
This is a shimmery, gold/ivory color, I find it very similar to Stila Oasis eye shadow.
I finally tried this after hearing all the "raves" on the Hair Board. I tried to use as little as possible as I heard too much could cause greasiness, but it just POURS out in your palm. But anyway, I dried it and I have to say that my hair was noticable straighter (I do use an iron as well) and smoother.
I cannot rave enough about this product! I FINALLY found a product that will reduce the appearance of oiliness on my non-washing day. I've tried many powders, but I've always had problems with them. This is a spray, which is great so you don't get powder all over your face. You spray it on the oily spots, wait 2 minutes, then brush it throughly through. My bangs actually did not look oily AT ALL, which is my major problem! I did have to use an awful lot though, and found a lot of the can to be gone. Ordering 2 more tonight though! Yay!
Fabulous light to slightly medium pink, great for a neutral look that actually shows up on my non pigmented lips.
Lotions/ Creams -Olay - Moisturinse in shower body lotion-extra dry skin
DanielleD 2/25/2005 3:31:00 PM
I was really excited to try this to see if I could really "skip a step" with applying body lotion when I get out of the shower. But, was disappointed to find out that you have to use your regular soap first to wash yourself, THEN apply the lotion to your body and rinse it off. I already use MANY different products for different parts of my body as it is, so this is one to many steps in my opinion, I'm in the shower nearly 30 min.! I haven't noticed any difference in the softness of my skin yet either, still applying lotion when I get out of the shower anyway. Too bad. :-(
Lipstick -Clinique - Color Surge Bare Brilliance in Pink Beach
DanielleD 2/22/2005 2:45:00 PM
This is a light, shimmery neutral pink. It's very beautiful, but I find it a bit too light for my lips (they aren't very pigmented either) Looks great when layering with other colors though.
Lipstick -Clinique - Almost Lipstick in Almost Blush
DanielleD 2/22/2005 2:43:00 PM
I found it! I found it! I FINALLY found a light pink lipstick that is light, but shows up enough on my lips! This is a perfect neutral pink lipstick that is fab!
This is a medium to dark berry/pink color that flashes gold. It wasn't very flattering to me so I would not purchase again.
Styling Products -Matrix - Color Smart Reflective Shine Spray
DanielleD 2/19/2005 4:51:00 PM
On back of bottle: shine intense spray with ultra-luminous addds a shimmering dimension and tames frizz without adding weight. I applied this by spraying a makeup brush and rubbing it down my hair shaft where I wanted shine; I find this helps from applying too much product and thus causing greasiness. I was really impressed with the effect i got: my hair was more shiny, it tamed flyaways & frizz.
Eye Shadow -Stila - Shadow Pots Eye Mousse in Moon

This is a white cream color that works great as a base shade or to highlight the browbone, lovely!
