Moisturizers -Lancome - Primordiale Optimum (Normal to Dry Skin)
dslloyd 8/15/2004 11:48:00 AM
I received a generous sample of this lotion as Estee lauder does not have a day lotion version with SPF in it. This SPF 15 for day lotion comes in a handy pump dispender and 1 squirt for each side of the face is all I needed. I am sad to see that it contains mineral oil ..pretty high on the ingredient list and that it does not protect against both UVA/UVB. I received a sample so I doubt I will purchase a full bottle.
I love this bronzer. I am medium toned african american and the lancome color director chose this powder to use on me to set my makeup instead of regular pressed pwowder. Being that i dont need a tan, i never would think twice to look at bronzers. this powder brings out the red undertones on my skin and I have received compliments that my skin looks healthy. I love the light scent. the compact is HUGE ...should last up to a year. will definately purchase again!
Treatments -Estee Lauder - Advanced Night Repair (Serum)

This serum is terrible. i have normal/combo skin. i received this in a gwp and thought that it would work as well as the advanced night for eye. i put my ever faithful estee lauder idealist aside to try this one ..MAJOR mistake! yuck..my pores instantly appeared and my face was like an oil slick. i had to use a baby wipe to remove it. tossed it ..will stick with idealist instead.
I use this as my smokey eye shadow as it goes on wet but then dries to a powder. It's the only product that will last on my oily lids all day! Took practice getting used to using it as a little goes a long way! Recommend!
Great nighttime lotion to use on my normal to oily (combo skin) along with my Estee Lauder Idealist. Face is hydrated and smooth. No oil slick in the morning. Estee Lauder has greatly improved my skin as I just turned 28. Recommend!
Top/Base Coats -Cover Girl - Nailslicks, with built-in top coat

Highly recommend. Great product at a great price. I have noticed that my polish lasts one week ..same as my Chanel nail polish even with kitchen gloves. Nice thin formula and shiny when dry. I have the classic red and Pink Twinkle which is a great nude pink. I dont have a need to spend 18 on polish anymore ...CG works fine at 4.00 a bottle!
I just purchased this and will need to exchange it for the fragrance free version or the green or silver compact. The Noxema smell is just too strong and even after 5 minutes ...I can still smell it in the air. Yuck ..but I adore CoverGirl ever since high school so I will get the frangrance free version **EDIT** Store didnt have fragrance free in my color so i got the SMoothers compact in dark blue and the smell is heaven ..must be the chamoille inside for softening effects. Will give it a shot!
It may seem odd to spend $17 on top coat ..but Chanel's La Brilliace is brilliant! My color dried fast at the salon, no scratches or smears on my fresh paint and the color lasted with no kitchen gloves during dish cleanup.
another great lip product from Lancome. I only purchased this since it came recommended from Ross Burton-Lancome's National color director. Love the slick packaging! Highly recommend!
loved this sexy brownish with gold color! looks great mixed with a chocolate lipliner. Highly recommend
This mouse foams with just a tiny bit of water. cleans and my normal to oily skin is not dry afterwards. ** EDIT * I switched to Estee Lauder's splash away cleanser for normal skin. removes everything just as well and is cheaper than Lancome's ***
this is the best lancome mascera. no clump clump clump like Hypnose and seperates and extends.
clump clump clump...spider legs. Returned and got Flexitels instead. Much better!
