Oh how I love this colour. Its quite dark in the pan but on the skin its very nice. I'm very fair, with blue eyes & blonde hair & this gives me a healthy flush of colour. I apply this fairly lightly because too heavy and it looks a bit clownish on me. Learned that the hard way! Anyways I find this very nice for a natural look. You don't have to wear much more makeup, this with a bit of eyeliner, mascara & gloss is all you need for a polished everyday look.
This is the best hand cream I have ever used. Its a mircle in a tube. I get extremly dry hands that crack & bleed & this is the only thing that keeps them in nice condition. I used to use the Body Shop Hemp hand cream but after a while it stopped working for me. I got my first tube free with another Avene product I have repurchased 3 times since. I will not be without this ever again.
This is my go to cream when my skin is freaking out. This seems to take away my redness and even seems to calm any blemishes that I get. The redness relief is only temporary though. This a very heavy cream so I only use it at night. It feels very moisturizing on my skin. Its fairly expensive but I only use it occasionally. I would not hesitate to repurchase.
I love this lipbalm. I don't really get chappd lips but I always put something on my lips at night to prevent getting chapped lips. I find this quite moisturizing. I actually like the white cast it give as it tones down the red in my lips. Its very expensive for a lipbalm, $14 CDN but I feel its worth it.
Eyeliner -Bobbi Brown - Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Graphite Shimmer Ink

Well I was a bit dissapointed with the colour, I was expecting it to be more grey. This is more my fault tho as I have to order from the internet. Anyways this is my first gel liner so I have nothing to compare it with, but so far I'm impressed. This goes on very smoothly & you hardly need any product at all. I also think this looks softer & more natural than liquid liner. The colour itself is more a charcoaly grey on me. Softer than black but still quite dark. Wears well & is easy to remove. I'll definitly try others in this line.
I love this. Wore it everyday the first week I got it. The standout e/s in this palette for me is the Buff shimmer wash, the other three colours are pretty much the same. The lipcolours are all pretty similar as well, Beige being the lightest. I could understand some people finding this boring, but I like the neutral look so for me its a keeper. It shows up very well on my cool PPP skin, never feels overdone but I can see the colour well. I would purchase the colours from this separatly without hesitation.
This is a nice, creamy lipcrayon. Its quite soft but not too soft, glides on the lips nicely. Its very much like a lipstick IMO. The colour is quite bright pink but nice not OTT. This wears well & eventually wears down to a stain effect, which doesn't look bad either. The peppermintyness wears off after a few minutes, its not too strong. Liked this so much I had to order the Wild Raspberry one!
Blush -Bobbi Brown - Pink Raspberry Pot Rouge ] [DISCONTINUED]
CherryBanana 5/2/2008 12:47:00 AM
This is (along with Stonewashed Pink) my first pot rouge & first cream blush. Well I didnt know what I was missing out on! I have the Pink Raspberry palette but this blush is much more wearable then the powder verison. Its much softer looking. Gives a really nice flush. I like a strong dose of colour so I haven't been able to over apply yet. This is very easy to blend & lasts all day. You don't need much so I imagine this will last a long time. My main concern was that this would wipe of my TM but its fine, so worried over nothing. I will defintly try more colours.
This conditioner is amazing. I don't have really damaged hair, just normal, highlighted hair (I'm natural dark blonde with light blonde highlights), rarely heat style. I just use this mask once a week after shampooing with Bain Satin 1. I actually get out of the shower, towel dry my hair & then apply this. Leave it on for half an hour to an hour. Afterwards my hair is soo so soft. This is ridiculously priced ($51 CDN) tho but you really don't need alot, it really distrubutes well, so if I look at it that way its not so bad. I would repurchase without hesitation. Packaging is a non-issue as I don't use it in the shower.
Mascara -Chanel - Cils a Cils Lash Building Mascara
CherryBanana 4/8/2008 1:05:00 AM
Well this isn't the best mascara I've ever used but its certainly not the worst. Does a decent enough job of lenghtening & volumizing. Gives a nice soft lash effect when used with a lash curler. Pirce is ridiculous tho. Not sure if I'd repurchase, still looking for the one.
This does not look the colour in the bottle, which, I am thankful for. This is a deep navy with no purple in it. It is a fairly flat colour, no shimmer at all. Looks quite sophisticated actually. I find you can tell its navy not black. Its alot softer. Like others I found if you apply the Azure over this, then it looks more like what you see in the bottle. Unfortunatly this one does chip a fair bit. I could only wear it for about 2 days before it was looking pretty sad. for me its not such a big deal as I rarely wear polish on my fingers. On my toes I have found Chanel polishes to last a month. So expensive tho.
This is such a nice spring/summer colour. Its fairly bright, coral-peach with lots of gold sparkles. It takes about 3 coats to get the colour you seen in the bottle. I haven't used this on my hands so I cannot comment on the chip factor but I imagine its no different then other Chanel polishes. However, I mostly wear them on my toes & I can get about a months wear out of them with no chipping at all. Very expensive tho,
Wasn't sure how this was going to work with my colouring (cool PPP) as most grey/silver tends to turn blue on my skin, but this isn't too bad. I do see a slight blueness to it...but I doen't bother me like other similar colours do. The pencil is soft, not as soft as the yeux crayons so I imagine this will last longer as it won't have to be sharpened as often, Application is very nice & fluid. Colour lasts all day. I don't find this to be too expensive, its like any other high end pencil. Good for daily wear.
This looks kind of scary in the pan but on the skin its much lighter. It is very pigmented, so all you need is a light touch, lasts all day. It is a very nice orangey peachy gold colour. it has a lot of shimmer but it doesnt show up on the face. The colour is similar to MAC's Springsheen only this has a lot more orange than pink. I think this would look very nice with a tan or on darker skin, but it still looks nice on my PPP skin. I can't imagine that I'll ever use this up as I only need to apply the lightest amount, so in that way the $40 price tag isn't so bad.
I love the colour of this, peachy pink gold, very much like Chanels Twinkle glossimer. Really brightens up the face. I used to run from anything peachy & now I just cant get enough. This gives good coverage & has a decent wear time. The only thing I don't really like is the texture, after a while it kinda gets clumpy or something...I can live with it tho, its not too bad. I would repurchase despite that.
