This lip gloss is absolutely beautiful. I usually have trouble finding lip colors that don't make me look like a cadaver, but this one is so pretty. It's a brown shade in the tube, but on my lips it looks like a peach or honey. It's neither bright nor dark, just very natural. I have medium-light, warm-toned skin, but I'll bet this would look good on anyone.

I saw Jennifer Anniston on "The Edge" in 1992 and her hair looked just like mine; it was wavy and had a lot of volume. Well, after using this hair iron, my hair looks like hers does now, straight and fine. I have used drugstore brand irons, but the difference is like night and day. I don't even have to blow my hair dry; I can let it air-dry, run the iron through and it takes away all the waves and reduces all that unwanted volume. My hair feels softer, too. Just keep it moving or it'll burn the hair.
Fragrances -L'Occitane - Orange Blossom Eau De Toilette

This is a very warm, long-lasting spray. The smell is heavenly, though some may find it a bit strong. It lasts at least as long as the oil, but I prefer the eau de toilette in the pretty old-fashioned bottle.
This is a very wearable, warm brownish-red color. I didn't think it was very opaque. It's a sheer,not too shiny gloss. Very flattering on my warm toned medium complexion.
Ihave this in several colors. My favorite is rock violet. I use this as an eyeliner along my upper lids. It makes a thick, but not very dark line that looks pretty over touch base in canvas.
Pressed Powders -Lancome - Matte Finish Sheer Pressed Powder

This powder evens out my skin tone better than many others I have tried. It also controls oiliness well. I have tried several and so far, this is the best.
I've been using this since it came in a glass jar. It works much better than masks containing kaolin. As for the irritation on the eyes, I simply do what my facialist does and apply a wet cotton pad over each eye while the mask works on the rest of my face. The longer I leave it on the better it works (not too long, though). It clears my skin and evens the tone beautifully.
I have been using this spray for a few months now. My hair color has not faded or become brassy. Now I can wait to color when my roots grow in and not because the color faded too soon.
Lipstick -Elizabeth Arden - Eight Hour Sheer Tint SPF 15- Chestnut 03

the look of this lip balm was just ok. the smell was awful.i will not buy this again.
i first tried this in healthy lips. it was a bit too bright for daytime, even though its a wearable red. in bare lips, however, the color was perfect and it stays put forever. i had to take one lipstick off because this product smells like stale crayons. but i will buy it again because i finally found my perfect color.
i received 2 samples of this in 04, but when i went to purchase it, 03 was a better match ( different stores, i guess). i absolutely love it. it covered up my imperfections better than any other foundation i have tried but looks sheer, not mask-like. it was a little thick, but for the miracle it performed on my face, i can overlook this. it also kept my very oily skin looking matte far longer than any other foundation i have tried.
i absolutely love this spray. i used to use sebastian laminates, but for me this is far better. however, you don't want to spray too much on or hair will look limp.
i like this scent, however it just doesn't last on me. i got this as a gift, but i would not buy it myself.
i love this musk. it's very concentrated and long-lasting, however, not overpowering. the scent reminds me of jr. high, but a bit more sophisticated.
i just love this scent. it lasts forever, is not overpowering and makes me smell clean. you can only smell it up close, but that's ok. it smells just yummy. i wish the packaging were a bit nicer, though.
