What can I say that hasn't already been said by the two other reviewers? It's a gorgeous brown with beautiful shimmer. It looks great on my hazel eyes. I wear in on my lid blended into my crease. I get a ton more compliments on my eyes when I wear this. I love Midnight Brown and if I ever hit the bottom of the pan, I will buy another.
I love this concealer. I tried many to find one that behaved the way I wanted it to. I only use this under my eyes. This was the only one that stayed put and didn't go into my fine lines. I warm a little on my finger and tap, tap, tap under my eyes. Works beautifully.
I had read there were different formulations of this. I just didn't know how different they are. I purchased this for my husband. The second night he used it, he woke up the next morning with a red forehead...as if he experienced a chemical burn. I told him to give it a few days and try it again. Unfortunately, it happened again. This wasn't cheap at $36, but completely useless. Its a shame they don't sell the french version in the states. I haven't read any negative reviews of that version.
Cleansers -Boscia - MakeUp-BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil
Blssflsea 9/9/2010 6:16:00 PM
This makes removing makeup, eye makeup in particular, a cinch. No scrubbing. Just spread this around and rub it in a little, then rinse away. I use this at night to remove everything. I'm thrilled with the results. It's even helped with my blackheads.
This is as good as Lancomes Artliner for a fraction of the cost. $8 vs $30 Doesn't flake. Last's all day (12hr+). I'm not a fan of the Black, but love the earthen brown and mineral grey.
This is the best top coat ever. And if it hadn't been for all the nail bloggers who use it, I would have never known about it. For the first time ever, I can do my nails and go to bed within 30 minutes. No sheet imprints at all!
I've already purchased this twice (a jar a year). And since I rarely repurchase anything, that's a very good sign of what I thought of it. I've tried some pretty pricey eye creams/gels... such as the shisedo future contour eye cream and Fresh Lotus eye gel. Skyn Icelandic is the only one that does what it claims to do. Moisturizes and helps dimish dark circles and puffiness. I love it and recommend it to everyone I know.
Lipstick -Lipstick Queen - Rouge Sinner Opaque Lipstick

UGH! Does the perfect red lipstick exist? I spent a ridiculously long day recently shopping for the "perfect" red lipstick. I had tried all department store brands (Nars, Mac, Chanel, Dior, Shisedo, Chantecaille, Guerlain, etc...). My lips were sore! I ended up purchasing Classic Red by Prescriptive, I guess, out of frustration. Plus it was one of the least expensive at $18. Not to anyone's surprise, I wasn't completely satisfied so I kept reading lipstick reviews when I came across a mention of Lipstick Queen. The more I read, the more intrigued and obsessed I became. Luckily, there is a store near my place of work that sells them. So, I took my lunch today and went straight to the mall. After trying a few different colors and formulas... I decided Rouge Sinner was the perfect red for me (mediterranean, olive toned skin with yellow undertones). Great texture, too. I have very dry lips and hate the way matte lipsticks make them look awful and anemic. Not with this. They remained soft and supple. Actually, when I got back to work, my co worker asked if I had put lip plumper on. She said my lips looks amazing and fuller. woo hoo! Sitting at my desk, I proceeded to eat a pop tart and drink vitamin water. When I got home, I ate some pretzels... and guess what??? 5 hours later, the color was still there. It had faded, of course, but was still a saturated red. Plus it faded evenly. I wasn't left with the red ring around my lips. And, my lips never got dry. Now I am researching which color I should purchase next :)
Styling Products -Bumble & Bumble - Thickening Spray

This surpassed my expectations. I spray it in my towel dried hair after I spray Prep... and then I blow dry it. It looks incredible... so soft and full. What amazes me the most is that it stays looking good after entire days... even windy days!
Scrubs -Fresh - Sugar Face Polish with Strawberries
Blssflsea 4/22/2005 3:34:00 PM
I LOVE this scrub/mask. I have combo skin and it has not made me break out. I rubbed a little bit on my face, moved it around, and then let it sit for about 10 min. I then rinsed it off with warm water... thats when I saw the results. My skin looked clean, moisturized, and fresh. Unbelievable! I will purchase again and again... even though the price is hard to swallow.
This product is horrible. It made my husband break out for the first time in his life. It's been 4 months since I returned it to the store and he is still recovering from the damage this caused. He now has some nasty marks on his skin, especially on his forehead. Becareful if you choose to go ahead and purchase. Just remember, you can return it.
Bath Treatments -L'Occitane - Olive Harvest Mediterranean Bath
Blssflsea 4/21/2005 8:59:00 PM
So wonderful! Great scent, very moisturizing. I slather it all over before I jump in the shower and let it just melt off. You can also jump into a bath after slathering it on.
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - 20% Shea Butter Hand Cream
Blssflsea 4/21/2005 8:57:00 PM
The BEST hand cream. A must for everyone. Not greasy. Soaks right in and lasts all day.
Doesn't have much staying power on my skin... but I still love the richness of vanilla and coconut. I never wear this anymore. It has no staying power at all!
Fragrances -Comptoir Sud Pacifique - Vanille Banane
Blssflsea 4/21/2005 8:53:00 PM
I love this! It's not strong... subtle and sweet. perfect for spring and summer. The banana is not fake and scary... just unique.
