Felt nice while I was actually scrubbing it on my face but the after effects were awful. It left that thick greasy layer on my skin for days, it seemed like, and would not wash off. Ugh...and to top it all off, I got a zit on my chin after using the size of a planet that lasted a week. It's going back to Sephora. If you have combination - oily skin, stay far away from this stuff.
I love it
First timer & I LOVE it! Got it for 25% off...another bonus. I have a tendency to want to keep rubbing it on my lips b/c the consistency & texture is SO nice. It's minty, which make it very soothing. I found my new lip balm for life. =)
shiseido eyelash curler blows shu's & trish's out of the water 10 fold! fits my eyes perfectly and flips my lashes all- - - the way back. LOVE it! highly recommend.
Mascara -Shiseido - The Makeup Mascara Base [DISCONTINUED]

shiseido mascara base ROCKS! it holds the curl and has mascara stay-put power. totally worth the money & is definitely one of those miracle products. i will continue to repurchase.
I am a big fan of MAC's Liquid E/L in Boot & have been for years now. It dries nicely where it has just the right amount of matte & a bold-enough black that conquers all other liquid liners that I've ever tried...from a brush applicator to higher-end brands...this one is the cream of the crop. It's very easy to apply & I notice that I like it the best after a couple of uses after I break it in some. ;)
Gels/Soaps -Dove - Moisturizing Body Wash - Sensitive Skin

Who would have guessed that a drugstore brand would work so well? Now that it's winter, my skin gets drier than dry, & this stuff actually moisturizes as I shower with it. I wasn't sure if it would lather up nicely with my mesh sponge...but much to my dismay...it sure did. =) I am a happily converted Dove enthusiast.
Misc Beauty Tools -GoSmile - GoSMILE B1 Whitening Kit

Very pricey...$75 for 30 ampules. They DO work though. I crack one of those babies open & swipe over my teeth before events, outings, anywhere where there will be picture-taking, & first impressions, and my teeth are gleaming, sparkling white. I'm almost out & will repurchase. Lots of celebs use it, too. Tip: If you want to have long-lasting white teeth...brush with baking soda+toothpaste on a daily basis. Especially if you're a coffee & tea drinker like me. =D
No pinching, no pulling. Curls the lashes nicely if I squeeze it for a long time. Thought maybe I have to just break it in...but it's been about 2 months since I bought it & I use it everyday. I like my Shu better.
Bedhead After Party works so nicely before styling my hair. It adds shine, doesn't weigh my hair down, and separates my hair nicely. It makes my hair look perfect all day long.
MAC's Cranberry e/s is a beautiful color that adds depth to the typical Shiseido brown e/s that I use on a daily basis. It is a sophisticated color that is excellent for the fall & winter.
I exchanged my Estee Lauder face & body brush for the BB Kabuki & let me tell you...I am SO glad that I did. Not only did it cost less than the EL brush, but the use of it is of no comparison. The bristles are much softer. The brush itself is smaller, so less purse space needed. My powder application is really nice. Simply lovely.
Pretty color, nice texture, but frequently would show up on my teeth. I tried this on at the MAC counter & while shopping around the mall, my boyfriend would keep saying that I had lipstick on my front teeth every 5 minutes after I kept wiping it off. It was pretty funny. I just don't mesh well with the amplifieds...I'm sticking with the Mattes. =)
Treatments -Nuskin - Celltrex Ultra Recovery Fluid
kimstar247 10/5/2004 1:57:00 PM
I bought Celltrex for the first time & I use it about 3-4 times a week under my makeup. It is a clear, runny liquid that smoothes out nicely on the skin. I don't know of any healing factors but I do like the way that it makes my overall skin texture look. It looks satiny, smooth, and radiant. I imagine it to last a long time since I don't use it everyday but once I run out, I'll repurchase.
Styling Products -L'anza - Urban Elements Finishing Freeze

Ladies...this is the HG of hairsprays on the planet. I have been around the block with hairsprays and this is by far the ultimate best. The hold is superb, promotes shine, good in humidity, and doesn't weigh hair down. It is perfect. This has been my #1 choice for about 7 years now. I try others if beauty supply stores run out and nothing ever compares. It's the secret weapon that every woman should have and use.
