I have fine colored and highlighted hair and I use a pump on my wet hair daily before drying it. This is awesome. I love it so much more than Morocan Oil. To me it doesn't even compare. My hair is shiney and controlled with this and it does not weight it down. If I don't use it I can tell a huge difference. Will continue to buy this!
Masks -Beauticontrol - Warming Trend Green Tea Masque
CarolynF 5/17/2010 7:25:00 PM
This is a wonderful mask to use if you are using any peels or retin a products and have the flakies. It is warming and you use it with water to activate the warming sensation. Rub the mask on your face for a minute and then I let it sit there for about 5 and rinse it off. It takes off my flakes, dries up any blemishes and leaves my skin smooth and glowing. It is awesome in my book. This is a new holy grail product I will keep in my beauty regimine.
Self Tanners -Fake Bake - Fake Bake Instant Self-Tanning Spray
CarolynF 7/9/2009 4:48:00 AM
I am floored that this self tanner has gotten such low reviews. This is the only self tanner that I use on my face and neck and it gives me a natural tan shade. I don't look orange. It matches my natural tan on my body. It doesn't streak. Since I have used this I have received so many compliments on my skin. People have asked what I am doing different and that my skin looks so healthy and even. I have used many other self tanners for my face and neck and this is the ONLY one that looks so good and gets my the color I want. If I want to go darker, I just spray and then wait about 15 minutes and give it another coat. I will NEVER be without this. It is definately one of my holy grail products! I love it!
This is a great sheer milky pink that can be layered to become opaque. The shade is very flattering if you are fair to medium toned. I am cool toned and this does not make my hands look "dead" and gives them enough color to look polished and professional. I also like to use this as a pedicure shade when I am in between visits to my salon.
This is a chemical peel and physical medi-exfoliation product for the body. I use it on hands, legs and arms. It is AWESOME!!! By far the best scrub I have used. I get very dry body skin in the winter and this takes off dead skin and leaves my skin soft. I am a nurse and wash my hands constantly and this is wonderful on my hands. Holy Grail for me!
This is a hot shade of plum/burgandy. It has shimmer and looks great on nails or toes. It has gold shimmer throughout. It has enough plum to wear with purples and red to wear with warmer shades. Dark enough to be hip and cool for fall!
This is a great nude lipstick. Slight sheen with a pink undertone without being a pinky/brown lipstick. The perfect nude color for a smokey eye. Also great for everyday. I am a FFF, neutral to cool toned, blue eyed brunette and this works great for me. Nice and moisturizing and lasts a decent amount of time. For the price and quality, this is definately woth a 5. Go and buy this ladies!
Oily skinned gals....run...run fast...run far...and don't look back! I am a 38 year old oily skinned gal and I was really wanting to try this. Good coverage, yes. Problem #1. Tried 3 different colors before I gave up and returned for Clinique Superfit(great for oily skin). Each color turned pinky orange. #2 Made my face look like I was an oil slick 2 hours after application, even with my mattifier. If you have dry skin or combo, this may be awesome for you....if you can find a color match. Oily skin girls, pass on this one.
In my opinion, this is so not meant for fine hair in any way. My hairstylist used this on my hair and said it would make it shiney. It was a little shinier, yes. I can get that from other products I use. The problem is when I ran my hands through my hair it felt like a gummy mess and was flat in the back. I definately don't want my color-treated fine hair to feel oily, gummy, and be flat! I will not be using this again. Fine hair girls beware!
Lip Gloss -Chanel - Glossimer in Glow [DISCONTINUED]
CarolynF 11/19/2006 1:12:00 PM
LOVE glossimers and Glow is no acception. It is a pretty peachy-pink shade that is more wearable than Volage and Twinkle. Shimmery and not as frosty as they are. VERY high shine and wears longer than my other glosses. I will definately repurchase this one. It looks great alone and also over lipstick.
Skincare - Face -Good Skin - All Right Mattifying Gel
CarolynF 10/25/2006 7:57:00 PM
This is a holy grail product for me. I have tried many mattifying products and they tend to break me out, Good Skin's version does not. My skin gets so oily in the t-zone that by early afternoon, I look like an oil slip. This product keeps my skin amazingly matte without looking dry or "older" looking. It has never broke me out as well. I cannot express my undying gratitude to this small but powerful product. I use a small amount in my t-zone. A little goes a long way.
Color is a nice nude shade that is pretty on me and I cannot pull off light nudes. Staying power is average. It has a brush applicator that I personally don't like but the thing that made me send this back is the HORRIBLE smell! If you don't like WNW sickly sweet smell, you won't like this one. Ick, I had to wipe it off my lips after an hour because I could not stand it anymore.
A gorgeous color that resembles MAC lovechild lipglass. Great everyday plummy, deep pink-neutral. I love this for fall and warm months. Very flattering to my cool undertoned skin, MAC NC25, Brown hair with blonde highlights, blue-eyed face. Moisturizing with a slight sheen. A great shade for a great cause. Go run and get yours today! : )
Skincare - Face -Avon - Anew Clinical Advanced Retexturizing Peel
CarolynF 9/23/2006 9:01:00 PM
This is Avon's version of a pad that you use every other day on your face as a micro peel. It does make my face a little more radiant in the morning, but does not make enough difference to continue using it. I have used this consistantly every other day for a month and this is a step that I can skip. May work better for people with more sensitive skin. My skin is too strong for what this peel does.
This is another great blush from Lancome. A true peach shade. Definately for warm to neutral complexions that want a true peach or apricot shade. Not a browny peach but a true peach to the orange. Not orangy in a pumpkin kind of way, but a brighter peach shade. Pretty and matte. No pink in this at all.
