Lip Liners -Beauticontrol - Lip Shaping Pencil - Mauve
MeditativeRose 12/4/2003 2:42:00 PM
This is a great liner- it's creamy and easy to apply. Did you know you can also use it before undereye concealer to help with undereye circles?
I'm wondering if the person who wrote the previous review was talking about the right company- the packaging on my lip pencil is gold and not at all pink. The BC lip pencils are creamy and go on smoothly, and have great staying power.
Lip Gloss -Beauticontrol - Tangy Margarita Lip Balm
MeditativeRose 12/4/2003 2:40:00 PM
The Margarita lip balm is BeautiControl's regular formula lip balm with a Margarita scent. It's fantastic. This is one of the top lip balms on the market, and my personal Holy Grail lip balm.
Scrubs -Beauticontrol - Salty Margarita Foot Scrub

This is a really cool foot scrub! It warms as your apply it, and the scent is crisp and refreshing. I love it!
Eyes -Beauticontrol - Regeneration Gold Eye Repair

I can't use most anti-aging products because my skin is very sensitive. But I can use the Regeneration Gold Eye Repair without any problems at all, and I have noticed a reduction in my undereye circles since I started using it, which really surprised me. It's a nice cream and you get a lot for your money.
I love this product. Paired with the Extreme Repair hand cream, it's perfect for, as one of my clients says, "hands as soft as a baby's ass." It's excellent to help prevent dry, cracked hands during the winter.
Skincare - Body -Beauticontrol - Regeneration for hands & body creme

This is one of the best deep hand creams I've ever used. I use it at night mostly, and it's great when you combine it with the Instant Manicure- a scrub with Dead Sea Salts and botanicals and oils. This is an unscented cream and is great for people who are bothered by fragrances. It is heavier than the regular hand cream, but it's for a specific purpose- to repair the kind of dry hands you get in the wintertime. My BF has been using it since the weather changed and hasn't had the problems with dryness and cracking that he usually has.
This is a great eyeliner! It has great staying power!
This is one of the most cleverly packaged products I've seen, and the product itself works great. Lip mask in the bottom, lip balm on top. Use it every other day for a week or two to start, then twice a week after that. Use the lip balm in the morning and at night. This makes your lipstick stay on longer and gets rid of those dry skin crumblies you get on your lips in the wintertime.
Big surprise for me on this product! I bought this because needed a brown mascara and didn't want to spend a fortune on it. I had fallen in love with NARS Bamboo mascara, but was already buying a bunch of other NARS products and needed to save a little on the mascara. Soooo.....I bought this on sale with a coupon and it cost me $5!
The first side is the extender. It's white but goes on a little clear/white. I was surprised at how fast my lash got thick and long- after like two strokes, actually. That's a lot faster than my MAC X-Factor, I can tell you that much.
The other side is the color, and it was a gentle brown that was perfect for the look I was after. It went on quickly and smoothly, didn't clump or cause any mega-lashes.
In general, I really like this product. I'm used to a single-wand mascara rather than a two-wand process, but I think once I get used to it, I will really like it. You definitely can get the full and long look with this mascara, so if that's what you're after, it's well worth giving this product a try.
Eye Makeup Remover -Sephora - Soothing eye makeup remover
MeditativeRose 3/3/2003 12:05:00 PM
I bought this to replace my blue Clinique eye makeup remover, and I adore it! I haven't been able to use anything but that gentle Clinique stuff for a long time, so it's nice to be able to switch. The bottle's great, too! : )
This is an excellent brush. I hadn't used a concealer brush before this, and I absolutely adore it. It's stiff enough to get the concealer on the brush, but soft enough that it just lightly brushes the concealer onto blemishes without irritating- it's the perfect blend of rigid and soft. I love it!
Misc Beauty Tools -Sephora - Duble Ended Blemish Extractor
MeditativeRose 3/3/2003 12:03:00 PM
This is an acceptable product. I use it occasionally and gently to remove blemishes, including zits and blackheads. It's a little hard to get the hole in the right place sometimes, but overall, it's an okay tool, you just have to remember to be very, very gentle.
This is a fantastic product. I think it's a bargain, too. You don't use much, so it lasts a long time! This is a pale pink chubby pencil that you use in the corners of your eyes- dot and blend. It brightens tired eyes and makes you look refreshed. I love this so much, I bought one for my sister and shipped it to her. Gorgeous!
WOW, another product from my NARS makeover. I bought it immediately. It's the perfect color, and I think it would look awesome on most people. The color wears very well and has excellent longevity.
