One of my HG makeup removers! Takes all the makeup, fast. Love the smell. It fails a little if you use too much layers of mascara, specially if it's wp. I don't like the "kinda oily" texture that stays on your skin after the use, but it is totally solved after rinse your face, using regular or thermal water. I suggest people with sensitive skin to try it on, specially those sensitive of abrasive products. But apart from these tiny issues, still my favorite.
I've got this blush in a swap and based on previous reviews from you girls. When I first saw, I thought "Ops, it's Clinique's Aglow dupe" (that I own). On the cheeks, they are way different. I could say that Eversun is from the same "family" of Sunbasque and Peachtwist (both from MAC), but more beautiful than its "relatives". Has the perfect balance of peach/coral and pink. And I have to say, the texture of these blushes is amazing! Definitely a must for NCs35 and above! And it will certainly be one of the favorites for the summer.

I've found my HG makeup remover! I've tried Baby Oil, L'Occitanne, Vichy and Lancome, but this Mary Kay's is outstanding! Cleans and it's not oily. Removes perfectly wp makeup. A+!!

I LOVE this product! Cleans perfectly, remove all makeup and do not dry your skin. I've tried some others cleansers, but this is the right one for me. Repurchase for sure!
Pressed Powders -Christian Dior - Diorskin Pressed Powder
claudiambdmelo 8/31/2007 12:55:00 PM
It's my HG pressed powder! The color I use (651) it's perfect to my NC 40 skin tone. Love the gorgeous effect it gives, with some coverage. Perfect to be used alone or over a foundation (for this, I recommend apply using a brush). And I like the sponge that comes with it. After some time of use, it gets better. The only thing that I don't like on it is the fact that it runs out fast. I have repurchased once, and definitely will repurchase again.
I heard once that this is an useless product. I disagree. It's a great powder, that gives you a flawless skin, with a plus - due to the color and the tiny sparkles on it. Perfect to retouch, use over a light coverage foundaion or when you are in a hurry. Only use the BP and the work is done. And the package is gorgeous! Would repurchase, if it's not LE. **NC 40, oily skin, dark hair and eyes.**
It's the perfect lipstick to show that you are "wearing nothing". I bought it based on reviews in here. I agree to what the girls said - it's a shade that fits all skin tones. I like the smooth and hydrating effect on lips. Nice color. I would repurchase.
One of my favorite blushes! I love the tan color and the highlighted effect. My favorite for the night. I just regret the fact that is almost impossible to use it on daylight.
Blush -Christian Dior - Dior Bronze Blush in Sunset Fiesta 002

I always love the package of this product and the idea of the combined shades. First tried this shade on the Free Shop, the sa that applied it on me. Did not like the peachy tone it gets. Then, we had in a "crazy sale day" here in my country - each blush was costing 1/3 of the regular price, due to a bug on the store's website. I decided to purchase both shades, at first the Fiesta for my mom (that didn't like the peachy at all). So I gave one more chance to the shade, applying it for myself, and what a surprise! Loved the sun tanned effect it gave me (I swipe the colors from the lighter peach to terracotta tone, barely use the highlighter). Would not repurchase for two reasons: First because it will last almost forever, then because I prefer the sun tanned effect of the regular Dior Bronze in 003. But it's a lovely shade for those girls who love peach shades, as well to the redheads.
I bought this product last year, then a new one this year. I know MAC reformulated its line of primers and for this product all I have to say is that becomes worst than it was before. My 2005/2006 launch works wonderfully and enhances all mascaras that I use. The new one is almost nothing. I hope that with some use the product gets more dense and get better effect.

The best!! Hold the eyeshadow all day, get vivid colors and effects of eyeshadows. Very practical to use and one tiny amount works well. Certainly repurchase!
Blush -Christian Dior - Dior Bronze Blush Sunrise Party 001
claudiambdmelo 8/29/2007 7:56:00 PM
Great product!! It's incredible how it works well in different skin tones. On me - NC 35/40 - it shows a nice rosey plum, as I always looked for (I apply using the 3 darker shades, swiping from the lighter to the dark pink shade). No further to say, it's a Dior! It would last for ages, but I would definitely repurchase.
Bronzers -Guerlain - Terracotta Light Sheer Bronzing Powder- Brunette 02
claudiambdmelo 8/8/2007 10:09:00 AM
As the girls said before me, wonderful product! Gives you a natural, bronzey skin tone, with lovely sparkles and lovely undertones. Way better than the tradicional Terracotta and its brick color, that I don't like.
Treatments -Phyto - Phytolisse Ultra Shine Smoothing Serum
claudiambdmelo 8/8/2007 10:03:00 AM
I could not believe when I saw too many bad reviews on this serum! This is a wonderful product, as well as the whole brushing line (Phytobrush shampoo and Phytodefrisant). It's a very light serum, not oily at all, quickly absorved. After using it, my hair looks stunning, straight, no frizz and no split ends and with a wonderful shine. Looks healthy. Perfect to use before flattening iron. And it lasts almost forever, because one tiny drop makes its job. Definitely repurchase it!
Blush -Guerlain - Terracotta Blush and Sun - 02 Sun Kissed
claudiambdmelo 8/8/2007 9:54:00 AM
I bought this blush based on the previous reviews. The shade is gorgeous and gives you a natural tan flush, with a subtle glow. Perfect for day or night. The only reason I took a lippie was the price ($42) for so little amount of product (.19 oz). But I would definitely repurchase it! (NC40-42, Dark hair/eyes)
