The BE brow color in auburn is the perfect color for my brows. I have strawberry blonde hair with honey blonde highlights (only my hairdresser knows for sure). I have been using the brow powder for over 5 years, and I have started using my SECOND JAR. It is definitely worth the cost! I have used many pencils because of the staying power but there is not a color pencil right for me, and always return to BE brow. If only this product was waterproof I would be shouting it from the rooftops. I have sparse eyebrows with no tail on one and BE brow powder is always needed. Update - for some reason I decided to try again to find a brow pencil. I purchased and returned 5 pencils! BE auburn is my color and it is so easy, unlike a pencil. A tip for those who don't like using a full pot is to put at least 1/2 in an empty BE pot and I do dip the brush in the color and use the lid to remove the excess. If you have an empty pot with the sifter, even better. Don't forget to "tape" over some of the holes so you don't get out too much. I usually use a return address label; sticks on great.
Mascara -Bare Escentuals - Flawless Definition Volumizing mascara

I have used so many mascara's, both department stores and drugstore brands. I decided on Prescriptives Falsh Eyelashes and have used it for many years. I noticed all of the good ratings of the Bare Escentuals Flawless Definition and decided to try it. As a GWP I have a sample mascara of BE and was not impressed; however the full-sized mascara I received is terrific. The wand works better than any I have ever used. I started with my bottom eyelashes where I always experience mascara everywhere except on my bottom lashes. I have used Clinique bottom lash mascara with no luck. This mascara works on the bottom lashes! I did not have globs of mascara and marks on my cheeks. I am amazed. I couldn't wait to try it on the top eyelashes. I do not have young eyelashes and this mascara was very black, lashes were separated and look quite good. I have a new HG mascara! I am glad I didn't rely on my opinion of the sample BE mascara, rather went by MakeupAlley reviews and tried again. My eyelashes look great with BE Flawless Definition mascara.
I have used drugstore, mostly Revlon I think, for 30 years and find they do not do anything for me. They do not " fit" my eyelashes. I think it's the curve of the Shiseido that works so great. For the first time I can get to the base of all my eyelashes without pinching skin. I am really impressed by this eyelash curler. My lashes curl and hold and this makes such a difference. My eyes look open and my lashes are defined. There is a tremendous difference using the Shiseido eyelash curler and I am pleased with the results. I highly recommend to women of all ages!
This is my HG concealer! I use under my eyes, on brown spots, blemishes, and vein lines. The application is easy. Love the applicator. I dot on with applicator, and smooth out. I have never had it settle into lines nor get cakey. It lasts forever, which makes it a bargain. The line smoothing concealer is as important as my mascara in my makeup routine. I tried quite a few concealers before Clinique rep suggested this to me and I don't need to try any other product. Don't leave home without it!
Mascara -Prescriptives - False Eyelashes Plush Mascara

When I first tried False Eyelashes many, many years ago I fell in love. I have short, light eyelashes. I was on a quest for a great mascara and started buying from a Prescriptives counter. Before I knew it was available online, I tried Bare Minerals, Definicils, Estée Lauder, Smashbox Full Exposure, Clinique (samples in bonuses) and others I cant remenber, and a few drugstore brands. I love False Eyelashes. I have no flaking or clumps. If I hear of a new mascara I may try another, but really Prescriptives False Eyelashes is my HG mascara. I am surprised if anyone purchases False Eyelashes and doesn't love it. I would give more than 5 stars if possible.
Hair Styling Tools -Farouk CHI - Chi Ceramic Flat Iron by Farouk

I used brand X inexpensive flat iron on my very curly hair and never achieved the silky, straight hair as my hair stylist. She told me the only difference was her Chi. (I use the same products as my hair stylist). Of course I was thrilled my hair stylist offered to get me a Chi at her cost. Wow, what a difference! Since my change of flat iron many years ago, I love how my hair turns out - straight and silky, without losing the body. I still have my original Chi and it works great. Since I am so dependent on my Chi I recently purchased a backup for $100 with coupon. When I receive compliments on my hair, people are shocked I have curly hair, LOVE MY CHI!
