Lipstick -Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Pur Shine 15 Tomette

The previous descriptions of the color is accurate. It is a peach/brick red shade. As with other Rouge Pur lipsticks, application is very smooth. I find this particular shade easy to build upon. I can either keep it light or apply more for a richer color. Compared with the Chanel Rouge Cocos, the staying power is not that great, but it does leave pigmentation on my lips so that it looks like I still have color. I do like this product a lot.
As the previous review stated, this is a warming mask. It deeps cleans well without drying my skin. I try to give myself a facial every week using this mask and a Lancome exfoliator. I love how my skin looks and feels after my home facials.
This polish turned out to be a red/magenta color with a little sparkle to it. It looks great against my tan skin tone. As for its staying power, I have not had a problem with it. My pedicure went about 3 weeks before it started to chip. This is one of my favorite nail polishes.
I'm pretty hard on my feet...I love wearing heels and exercising hard. This lotion is so moisturizing and feels great after a long day at work or after a hard run. It's always a treat to use this product.

I have very dry skin. This product moisturizes wonderfully without leaving a greasy film. I love that it is unscented so that it does not interfere with my use of perfume.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Colossal Waterproof

This is one of my favorite mascaras ever! It holds the curl, lengthens and adds volume without clumping.
A nice copper shade with subtle shimmer to it. I use this shadow a lot when I want a natural look. Stays on my lids all day.
This is a great cleanser! I use this in the evening to wash off my makeup. My skin does not get that "tight" feeling after I use it. The scent is very mild and pleasant. The price is a little steep for a bar of soap, but it's worth it. Fortunately I stocked up on the soap a couple of years ago when I was in Portugal, where it is half of the US price...and I still have 3 bars left!
Good toner. Takes of the cleanser residue and makes my skin feel refreshed in the morning. Also helps my skin hold my moisturizer. I really like this product.
I use this cleanser in the morning. It's quick and easy to use. I have to be careful of the type of cleanser I use since I have dry, sensitive skin. This does not leave my skin feeling tight. I'm very happy with this product.
Perfect! Color, texture, ease of application...I haven't found another product better than this. This is a staple for me.
When I first saw this palette, I immediately thought it would work or me due to the color combination. The texture of the shadows are typical Dior, smooth and silky. After the SA did a makeover on me, I liked what she did and bought it. I noticed as the day went on my eyes started to itch...I was allergic to the darkest shade and had to return it.
Eye Shadow -Christian Dior - Iridescent Quint -Petal Shine 809

The shadows in this quint are soft, neutral and very versatile. It's easy to go from day to evening. I've also used other eyeshadow colors from different brands with this set and I have yet to come up with a combination I dislike. The texture of the Dior shadows is exceptionally smooth and silky, which makes blending so easy. The staying power of the powder is phenomenal...I've gone to the gym wearing this and even after a hard workout, there are no creases on my lids. This is a wonderful product from Dior!
The color chart at the Chanel counter classifies this l/s in the brown family. When the SA applied it on me, it looked more mauve...but I can see the brown hue in it. She paired it the nude lipliner and I loved the soft natural look it gave my lips. The texture of the Rouge Coco line is fabulous...and this shade will work for everyone.
This is a beautiful quad with soft, neutral colors. It is a versatile quad where one can easily go from a natural day look or build the colors into a dramatic look for evening. So, why will I not buy this again? There is an undertone in the shadows that makes me look washed out, no matter how I apply it. It's just my coloring.
