Polishes -DuWop - Duwop toe polish in glass slipper
ChristyL 4/14/2008 5:27:00 PM
I love color, so I'll keep the polish, but I won't buy another DuWop nail polish. Normally a pedicure will last me 2 weeks and look good, and this polish barely lasted a week before it began to chip and wear.
Conditioner -ENJOY - Sulfate-Free Hydrating Conditioner
ChristyL 4/9/2008 12:37:00 AM
I love this conditioner. A little really goes a long way, a small bottle of this lasts me well over a year! I also use it for shaving in the shower.
I've been using this shampoo for several years now -- I need to change to the hydrating in the winter, but I love this stuff, nothing else makes my hair look so fantastic! I also use this as a body wash: I love the smell and it doesn't cause me any sensitivities.
I love this shadow -- it is one of my HG eye shadows. It can be darker, lighter, contour, or all over depending on how you apply it. The price is dirt cheap because this stuff lasts FOREVER. I've had it for 2 years now, and I use it almost everyday, and it still looks full!
Love this stuff! I use just a tiny bit, work it in my hands, run it on the underside and back of my hair and work my way to the top. Gets rid of my fly-aways and adds a little bit of extra shine!
I got so many compliments wearing this today! I have it in Dark Brown and it just made my eyes pop. I don't like crazy long lashes, and this just adds a lot of volume without clumping. It doesn't have a unique smell, but it's not BAD, just different.
Cleansers -Clinique - Redness Solutions Soothing Cleanser
ChristyL 3/26/2008 8:40:00 PM
Just purchased this today, so I'll update once I am able to see the long-term effects on my redness. On first use -- it took off my makeup effectively, my skin felt moisturized and not dry once I'd rinsed it off. Week later -- I really like this cleanser. My skin feels great, and the redness looks a bit better on one side of my face, but not significantly. I'll continue to update as I keep using it. Two weeks later: I'm very happy with this and am seeing some noticeable differences in the redness in my face!
Moisturizers -Clinique - Redness Solutions Daily Relief Moisture Cream
ChristyL 3/26/2008 8:34:00 PM
I bought this today as part of the redness relief kit. I washed with the soothing cleanser, then followed with this. It goes on thick (which I like because I have dry skin), and has very little fragrance. My skin doesn't feel greasy. Don't know how it helps with redness, but I will update once I've been using it for a few weeks. If it works on the redness I will most certainly purchase again. One week update: Still liking this moisturizer. My skin feels great, and the redness looks a bit better on one side of my face, but not significantly. I'll continue to update as I keep using it. Nearly two weeks later: There is a noticeable difference in the redness on my face. Still happy and seeing results!
As I've been using my newer handy buki brush I realize how unhappy I am with this brush. It provides medium coverage in a very short amount of time, but it's scratch and loses bristles like crazy. I have better BE brushes, and there may very well be better kabuki brushes out there.
Makeup Brushes -Bare Escentuals - Heavenly Face Brush
ChristyL 3/24/2008 11:55:00 PM
This is my favorite BE brush. It has a very soft application, and provides really full coverage for my bare minerals.
I love Bare Escentuals Bare Minerals. For years I'd been looking for a makeup that didn't look like I was trying to cover the redness in my face -- this is it. I get complimented on my skin all the time because of this makeup. Check out my with/without makeup pictures to see the difference. It is drying (initially I broke out because my skin was so dry), and I had to change how I moisturized to compensate, but once I got that figured out I've been nothing but happy ever since.
Cleansers -Mary Kay - Timewise 3-in-1 Cleanser and Moisturizer
ChristyL 3/24/2008 11:49:00 PM
I've been using the normal/dry version of this for over a year, and my skin is great. I've got a lot of cosmetic allergies, and this causes me no problems.
This mascara went on really clumpy for me, and flaked mid-day.
Moisturizers -Mary Kay - Timewise Age Fighting Moisturizer
ChristyL 3/24/2008 11:46:00 PM
I've been using this moisturizer for about 2 years now. I have really sensitive skin, and I'm allergic to a lot of cosmetics, and this doesn't cause me any problems. I have dry skin, but this isn't greasy or oily, it goes on smoothly and keeps my skin feeling nice all day long.
