I love this color! almost black plum. Similar to OPI "eifell for this color" doesnt chip easily
First off, the product in the bottle is slightly decieving, or at least it was to me. I find it to be on the sheerer side and give a very natural look making it a great choice for the office and a great choice if you dont want chips to look obvious. It reminded me of nail polish Betty Draper wears on Mad Men a lot. I like it, I don't love it
Foundations -Boscia - Boscia B.B. Cream SPF 27 PA++

This product is a great alternative to foundation for daily wear. It has benefits of skin care products, while diffusing imperfections. I like it for M-F 9-5 and will probably also wear it a lot during the summer because it is a no makeup look and sweat won't make it run like a regular foundation. As for the shimmer people are mentioning...I do not find it to be an issue. As for the ghostly palor I have heard mentioned, I believe that this is not a product meant for photography and is not intended to work well with a flash like most foundations do. This is for people who want to have a great no makeup look, protect thier skin and get some minimal coverage....not for people who want a photogenic makeup look. The color happens to work on my skintone (nw25) but I imagine that it would be too dark or light for some people. You just have to try it. I said I would not be purchasing again because I am going to buy the clinique version next
Base color reminds me of my mom's favorite color from the 1990s and the green shimmer sets off the green undertones in my skin. Thus this color fees as dated as it is unflattering. The pearlized finish is also remniscent of as trend that happned almost ten years ago. Got this one on sale, and every once in a while it emerges and I think I will give it another shot. The upside: It is a safe color for the office and wears a long time.
I got this for christmas as part of a set. I love the color, I love the consistency. Not sticky at all. I also really like the cotton candy smell. I would but the full sized version
I bought this to go with a gold sequin dress and I loved the way it looked!! I ended up losing it the night after I bought it, so I went out and reluctantly shelled out the cash for a replacement because of how long wearing and pretty it was. I generally wear NARS orgasm gloss, and it has a similar color, however the NARS was starting to dry out my lips (i have vey dry lips) The Chanel is around the same price and I have to say, I am switching brands. Love it!
Lotions/ Creams -Aveeno - Intense Relief Hand Cream

AMAZING I am a religious appplier of hand cream every night, and not untill I bought this (on advice of a magazine's best product list) did I ever see a major difference. My hands are so incredibly soft I cannot believe it! Great stuff, highly reccomend
SPF in a hand cream is great because hands show age with sundamage, however this particular one is so dense and not quickly absorbed, making it more of a night time appropriate one. I dont like to use it during the day because a pen will slide out of my hand and I feel like I am leaving a greasy residue on things I touch. I bought it on sale so I am not writing it off, but I wouldn't repurchase
Since exfoliation is so important in anti-aging and skin tone and since I have dry skin, I was looking for a product that would exfoliate without drying. The only product I saw in the drugstore that claimed to do both was this. I have not been dissapointed, it is a great product for everyday use and does not dry me out. It is priced very reasonably, and I like the smell it has, fresh and not overpowering. I purchased the CVS version, and it is not quite as good as the original.
Perfect classic red. great wearability, opaque in one coat with a deeper color achieved in 2 coats. All you can ask! This is one of the only color I like to have my toes and nails matching with.Looks great with nude peep toes.
Lip Gloss -Clinique - Glosswear for lips in Air Kiss

Got this as a free sample at sephora. This gloss really does last a long time, is moisturizes, it provides spf protection and I LOVE IT! HG it feels so nice on
Grey was a hot trend this year, and this color does not disappoint! It's a grurple ( grey purple ) and it Is typical essie- thin coats layering beautifully.
Wonder Woman collection, Spring 2011 Got this lipstick because I was trying to replicate a berry/hot pink color I had seen on Janice Dickenson in the celebrity rehab finale and the color I saw Whitney Port wear on the Barbie and Ken show promotion. Anyway, I thought I was looking for a pinker color and tried many on. I was not happy with the pinks I tried on, as they looked clownish on my cool toned skin. The girl at the MAC counter told me to try this one on, and as soon as I did I was hooked. It appears very purple in the tube, but when applied (on me anyway) looks very much more pink. I love this color! Perfect and on trend for spring PS the packaging kind of looks like a sex toy
Great color, I was bummed when my MAC skinfinnish so ceylon ran out. This is great to keep in my bag for touchups when I am going out after work because it does the work of both a bronzer and a blush in one. It won't replace my NARS orgasm/laguna combo, but it is great on the go. At $12 its a great buy. I have fair to medium skin and it looks natural
I got this color when my MAC speed dial ran out. I am not sure which I like better but they are close. Both are blue based pinks and on the sheer side when it comes to lipstick. It looked great layered under NARS Angelika lipgloss and it looks nice alone too
