I have fixed feelings about this product. Not sure if it does anything for me. I prefer other primers over this one, like the Makeup Forever HD Primer. The mouse primer thing does not impressed me as much. I am still using it, as it has no caused me any breakouts or anything. But i will not be re-purchasing.
Loose Powders -La Mer - Skincolor De La Mer - The Powder - Poudre de La Mer
babyscorpion 4/15/2009 1:56:00 PM
Best loose powder ever! It is lightweight, super finely milled and gourgous! I use the creme one, over the creme La Mer foundation, and it is an amazing combination. However, it does work well with any other liquid foundation. I have the La Praire loose powder as well, and even thou the La Praire is nice and finely milled too, somehow it like this one a lot better. It could be the color, i am not exactly sure what it is. But I like the La Mer a lot more. Highly recommend it.
Crème -La Mer - The Treatment Creme Foundation SPF 15
babyscorpion 4/15/2009 1:48:00 PM
I am a La Mer fan. I own a lot of this lines products and I am very pleased with everything I have used so far. This foundation is not an exception. The first time I used the foundation it was at a La Mer counter and the SA washed my face with the cleansing lotion and it left my skin so greasy. That I thought I hated the foundation. My skin is combination/oily, therefore the lotion cleaning from La Mer is not the best alternative for my skin. I use either the foam or the gel cleanser. Anyhow, since I had a few samples I have tried at home with the different techniques and cleaning my skin properly and OMG!!!! I absolutely love it. My skin looks flawless!!! At first I was using my fingers for apply it, and like it. I have also used MAC 187 and MAC 109. My favorite was the MAC 109. I like it better than the one La Mer suggests. But I found the beauty blender now (or Sonia Kashuk Blending Sponge from Target) and this is my new favorite to applying this (or any) liquid foundation. This foundation stays all day on my skin, and looking super! I am completely in-love with the La Mer loose powder as well. I like using it on top of the foundation to set it. Highly recommend this combination if you are looking for a medium to full coverage.
This foundation is just ok. I do not think i would re-purchase. I prefer the Makeup Forever HD and others (shu uemura, La Mer, Revlon Color Stay) over this one. My first issue with foundation was matching my color. That was a roller-coaster. I finally found that NC-20 was the closest. It is still a bit yellow, but with good blending and application it looks good. The coverage is medium to full, that part i do like. But somehow i just do not get the same flawless look that i get with my Makeup Forever HD or La Mer Foundation. There is something about this foundation that i am not 100% pleased with. It does stay a long time, however in my skin by the end of the day it is almost gone. I get that with almost every fondation except La Mer. I guess this one is just ok, i would not repurchase because i agree that the Revlon Color Stay is a good dupe for it and i do like the colors on the Revlon a lot better. And even thou i do like high end foundations and do not mind paying for them, why would i pay $28 when the Revlon Color Stay i can get it for $5 (on BOGO) and it does the same ? At least to me. It is not completely horrible, but not my HG.
Makeup Brushes -Sonia Kashuk - Contour Blusher Brush

I got this one on clearance at my local Target. I think i paid like $6.40 or something like that. I am really pleased with this brush. I used it for my blush and the color stayed longer. It could be because it is such as small brush that it does pack on the color really well. Very impressed with the quality of the brush. I agree with a few reviewers below, i wish it was a little bit bigger. That's why i took one lippie off. I will recommend this brush and i do own some other Sonia Kashuk brushes and i am really impressed with the quality. Highly recommend checking out these brushes.
After viewing some reviews on youtube and online of the beauty blender, i had to order it. But i saw a review where they were comparing the beauty blender with this one. So i went to my local Target to find one, and OMG! This is amazing, I have been using it all weekend and i am completely impressed with it. I use it wet and use the same technique that I would use the beauty blender. Since i watch so many videos on the other one. Pretty much you wet it, then you squize it with a towel then use it. When using it i bounce it on the face. FLAWLESS!!!! I am a fondation junkie, so i have been trying it with some of my foundations and I am really happy with it. Will definetely re-purchase. Now once i get the beauty blender, it has some high standards to be measure to, since it is twice as expensive. :) Highly recommend buying this one. Thanks!
Lipstick -Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Volupte #2 Sensual Silk / Blond Sensuel
babyscorpion 4/14/2009 4:17:00 PM
It is a very expensive lipstick, but the formulation is amazing and i would repurchase it again. This particular color is my favorite. I also own #1, which it is more pink. This one goes on well with pretty much any eye look i want to do. I love it for everyday use. I agree with the reviewer below, i also own a lot of nude lipsticks, but this one is different. Love it, one of my favorites.
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack
babyscorpion 4/2/2009 5:07:00 PM
I am very impressed by this product. It is extemely long lasting. When i wear it i do not have to worry about retouching my eyelinner, like i do with blush, lipstick, powder, etc... It is very nice and easy to work with. It is not my everyday liner because i have the pen liquid liner from MAC and that one is quicker for me in the mornings. The pen liquid is my HG liner from MAC. But this one is amazing as well. I use this one on the weekends, or when i am going out and taking time to do my makeup really nice :) If you are into Gel liners, i will highly recommend this one.
Wonderful! No creasing, lasting power amazing! Great light beige color. I love it. It can be used as a base or a your all over eye color. I used it with Henna for a work day and was very impressed with it. It looked gourgous and it last all day. Highly recommend it
I am an NC20/25 skin tone. From all of the lipsticks that come on the SugarSweet collection, this one was the best one that looked on me. The color is like a coral. Very settle, very pretty. Since it is a limited edition lipstick, i got a backup of it.
Buffy Body Butter is for moisturizing your skin. this is a different product than anything i have ever purchased. I love body scrubs, but this one is different. this one leaves a layer of moisturized skin. Really nice. I love using it at night, because i wake up feeling soft. I mainly using it for my legs, feet, arms and hands. If you have very dry skin, this one is a good one to try. I have many lotions and creams. I am a product junkie :) But as far as moisturizing this hands down is the best i have ever tried. I have been very impressed by many of the Lush products. But if i had to pick a #1 Lush product, i think this one will be it.
I went to the Lush store to purchase this and the Sales Lady gave me a treatment using this. She first asked me to put on my hands Lemony Flutter Cuticle Butter. After my hands were filled with cream, she asked me to put some of this Ocean Salt and I scrubbed my hands. I really did not want to stop :) It felt very nice and not to harsh. Then I took it off with water and OMG! My hands very super mega soft!!! She then put a hand cream, but honestly I can't remember which one it was. I was amazing as well. I purchased both item and the Charity Pot Cream and have done the same treatments at home once a week and it is working amazing. My hands are so much softer. Now I have started to use this scrub on my face and my body. Will definitely go back to repurchase a big one of these. Highly recommend it!
Amazing! My hubby and I love using it to give massages to each other :) Or to massage our feet at night. Very moisturizing and i love the scent. One of my favorite items from LUSH. I also love the Strawberry one that's in a shape of a heart. Check them out!
I personally looooooooooveeeeeee the scent of this lotion. It is amazing. I enjoy using this one after i take a shower. It is not sticky and it absorbes by the skin pretty quickly. I do not think it is to moisturize super dry skin. But it is nice. Would repurchase again if i have the cash.
Somehow Lush products did not appeal me enough to try them. But after reading some reviews and watching a few youtube recommendations I decide it to give it a go. I must say that I am very impressed by Lush products. This soap had one of the best reviews and I agree with all of them. I love the smell of this soap. I think it is very creamy and foamy. I feel that it does not dry my skin and I look forward using it when I have it, would definitely recommend it.
