I love this color! It is the quintessential red..no coral or orange undertones, it is great against my skin color. I don't usually like reds without depth (think CG Ruby Pumps or OPI I'm not a Waitress)...but this is just so sexy and looks so great, I have to go with it!

This product works as well, if not better, than the favorite - Seche Vite, at a much lower price and much easier to find...(local drugstores). Seriously, a great product that never fails to protect my manis and prolong them - good shine too
I have been very pleased with this line of nail polishes - all have been beautiful colors, easy to apply, long lasting and CHEAP!
Hair Styling Tools -Babyliss - Pro Nano Titanium Straightening Iron
CRosieB 7/31/2012 4:06:00 PM
This is the best flat iron I have ever owned...it heats quickly, the settings are easy to read, it gets very hot (helps with at home keratin treatments) and leaves my hair soft rather than stiff as I experienced with the Sedu.
This is a great polish, very pretty creamy pale greyish lilac/white with opalescent sparkles! great to add over a sharp base color! gorgeous, not tacky looking at all.
This is a great snuggly winter scent, it is almost perfect, the only thing i would change is maybe make it a little less "masculine" and a bit more "feminine" by adding a softer powder note...love this and adore the formulator herself, she is a gem.
Flirt is a very pretty purpley lilac pink...nice and I like it...it chipped after 3 days - not sure if its the polish or the Seche Vite base and coat.
Treatments (Eye) -Promaxyl - Eyelash Renewal serum Rapidlash

This product is befitting its name - it is rapid and it lengthened my lashes beautifully...they are no longer stubby, not much more volume, but definitely length and in a very short time, less than six weeks I would guess. Not sure if I should continue with trying the Careprost when I have this gem.!
Polishes -Revlon - Nail Enamel - Strawberry Electric
CRosieB 4/22/2012 9:38:00 AM
I love this shade and this polish, but I had to throw my last bottle away - it became too thick and impossible to thin...and I love this shade and believe it has been discontinued...it was such a wonderful shade - pretty - and perfect for adding a bit of extra color to a professional look - I am not a fan of boring polishes, but need to be careful not to go too far out there - since I work in an office. Revlon - please bring this one back!!!
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Renpure Brazilian Keratin 14 day straight treatment

When you use this product as directed, it will straighten and smooth your hair, but mostly because you are adding a coating to your hair, then flat ironing the heck out of your hair. The key to any of these products is what your hair looks like after the first shampoo, post treatment. Mine? It was back to being frizzy, but not nearly as much. I don't think this works any better than a regular leave in conditioner that controls frizz - there are cheaper ones out there. good luck.
Mascara -Cover Girl - Professional Super Thick Lash Mascara
CRosieB 3/17/2012 11:39:00 AM
I do not know how this product got it's name! It is not professional, it is not super, it is not thick, it is a dud (didn't do much for me)
This is the worst. It clumps and the brush is flimsy, not helpful at all. It did not add anything to my lashes, only made them look clumpy and too dark (I purchased black brown - no brown at all in this one). VERY DISAPPOINTED.
Styling Products -Organix - Renewing Moroccan Argan Penetrating Oil
CRosieB 2/17/2012 8:41:00 AM
This product works *very* well at smoothing out my frizz and making my hair look sleek and shiny but not too heavy BUT this comes at a price: this product is full of silicones and I work that with the amount I am using - my hair is quickly becoming baked in silicones. Also, the squeeze top is not well designed, if you are not carefully you can quickly squeeze out WAY more than you need... oh well, works great - but problematic
Very disappointing - ordered tarts and a candle, little to no scent throw
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Bourbon French - Mon Amour
CRosieB 1/15/2012 2:40:00 PM
Just lovely, truly. What a sophisticated, yet playful and almost cozy scent - cherries, vanilla, soft woods, a hint of floral, truly lovely. I don't think I have ever come across a Bourbon French scent I did not enjoy - some weren't for me (too floral) - but overall this is the best fragrance house on this side of the Atlantic ocean. A fragrance house for perfume lovers, not amateur mall shoppers :)
