I love this eyeliner. I've been using this for years. I use Brown and it's very easy to use because of the firm applicator tip. I love this! And the price is very good too!
Mascara -Maybelline - Unstoppable Mascara [DISCONTINUED]
CathyD 1/2/2006 4:22:00 PM
This is no miracle mascara but at the same time, it's not a bad mascara. I have yet to come across any mascara that made a miraculous difference on my lashes anyway and as a product junkie, I've tried A LOT of different ones. This isn't an extraordinary product but I like it because it's not thick and clumpy and it's very easy to take off. It also didn't smear which was a plus. As far as the 50% length it promises, it didn't happen. Little fiber stuff did attach itself on my lashes ONCE in awhile when it feels like it but no miracles of 50% longer lashes. If you just want a mascara, go ahead and try it but if you want a va-va-boom result(is there any that does though?), this isn't it for you.
Pressed Powders -Sonia Kashuk - bare minimum pressed powder
CathyD 12/30/2005 7:30:00 PM
I'm very fair and it's very hard to come by powders that's light enough for me. I went to Target and saw this (Chiffon) and got it on a whim to test it out because it's cheap. I was surprised that it was a pretty finely milled powder and it kept my face from shining even after all day. For the price, I would get this again. I was using Becca pressed powder but I find it this is better than Becca.
Loose Powders -T. LeClerc - T. LeClerc Loose Powder

I like this powder. The color seems a bit odd at first but it blends right in and sets my make up. It's also good for oily skin. I would repurchase.
This is my favorite shadow! On the pan, it looks just white and plain but they are actually very pretty shimmery, iridescent, green and blue colors that brighten my eyes! The shimmer is very subtle (but you can layer it or use it wet to emphasize the color) and it's very pretty. I use more of the green but the blue is very pretty too. YOu can use the shadow with other shadows to layer for more boost. This shadow can be worn over any other shadow and instantly change the old shadows into new colors. This shadow is simply lovely! I love it!
Highlighters -Guerlain - Les Meteorites Ball Powder Beige Chic 03

I love this!! Even though the balls seem very dark in the packaging, it barely adds colors and gives that polished look and sets the makeup. I love this product!
Treatments -Alpha Hydrox - Intensive AHA Revitalizing Peel Mask 14 percent [DISCONTINUED]
CathyD 12/21/2005 11:18:00 PM
I really love this peel. It's cheap, to begin with and it made my face feel so smooth afterwards. I didn't experience any stinging or redness. I like this product because it's fragrance free and it's inexpensive and does it's job. If I had to complain, I wish they can make an alternate mask(gel, clay or even just acid itself) instead of using an OVERSIZED blanket that makes me look like some freak in horror films. I'm sure the size of the mask was made to fit EVERYONE but I can't imagine anyone's face as big as a king size bed. The mask also wasn't "wet" enough or it just didn't stay on as well as I hope. Aside from this complaint, I like the product and I would purchase again.
Moisturizers -La Mer - Creme de la mer moisturizer
CathyD 12/19/2005 8:14:00 PM
It's an ok moisturizer and I'm not sure if it was worth the money.
This product did absolutely nothing for my skin. I must be one of the rare cases with no results.
It's not a bad lip balm but it wasn't extraordinary. I think any drugstore lip balm would do just the same job.
I think the musk is too overpowering when dried down. It smells prettier in the bottle.
This is a very clean, fresh green scent. It reminds me of Calyx, actually. The lasting power isn't so great but overall, it's a very subtle, clean scent but I won't purchase this again.
Fragrances -Comptoir Sud Pacifique - Vanille Extreme
CathyD 11/9/2005 1:45:00 AM
I thought this smelled exactly like L'Occitane's original Vanille. It smells wonderful from the bottle but on me, vanilla was overpowered by the sandalwood and musk, two scents that do not agree with me. I was expecting more of a creamy vanilla type of a scent. I was rather disappointed with this one but I'm a fan of CSP line overall.
Fragrances -Comptoir Sud Pacifique - Vanille Canelle
CathyD 11/4/2003 4:29:00 AM
I was so excited about this one since someone said this smelled just like a cinnabun. Oh I wish it was true! It starts out with a strong cinnamon scent--as someone said on the review, it really does start out like Big Red gum cinnamony scent. THe dry down is not the typical CSP sweet vanilla.....I would have to say this is the best out of the three but that's not saying much since both VP and VC didn't wow me much.
This smelled just like Tiare on me. I detect no coconut in Tiare nor in this one.
