I love this color. It's a brown/black with no red-tones. I have pale skin, so this is a good version of a black liner for me. I also love the Technakohls, since there is no sharpening involved :-)
Love this mascara! The rubber wand and the formula are just perfect. I always get nice long lashes without clumps. HG material!!
This is a nice neutral colored l/l. I would describe this color as similar in tone to spice, but lighter. This liner is a little hard/dry; I wish it was a little softer. The color is nice, however it's too orangey for me. I am an NC15, and it washes me out because it's so warm toned. I bought this liner because it's one of the lighter shades from MAC, but I wish it was more pink and less orange. I didn't realize how orangey it was in the store :-/
Lotions/ Creams -Aveeno - Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion

I have found this to be the best moisturizer for itchy skin! The oatmeal in it really works to calm down the itch. I have purchased this over and over. I think Aveeno's products are really great quality. I live in Las Vegas, and it's great to have this lotion. Sometimes if I have bad allergies, and my face gets itchy, I will apply this to my face. I have never had any problems with breaking out when using this as a face lotion. I cannot live without this stuff here in the desert! Highly recommend.
I'm a sucker for nice, soft familiar scents. I love using this before bed. The lotion is so soft, and the scent is so soothing. I usually use Aveeno; I think Aveeno is a little better for dry and itchy skin. However, the J&J is pretty moisturizing as well, and love the scent!
Lipstick -MAC - Sheen Supreme Lipstick - Full Speed
Connie11 8/10/2011 2:22:00 AM
A great color for summer! The sheen supreme is a little more glossy than a regular lippie. I wanted something bright with a little bit of orange in it. At first I was scared to wear this, so I would mix it with another l/s or gloss. I just discovered it really looks great on it's own. It's brighter and bolder than what I usually wear, but I really love it now!
Love this! I have this in the Tempting quad. I use Dark Edge almost daily to create a smokey eye using Vanilla as the base color. Dark Edge is so perfect for me, since it doesn't have any red tones. I also like that it is matte, and goes on super smooth. I love using Earthline e/l with this also.
Nice thick conditioning treatment that works really well! I use this right after coloring my hair. It really makes my fine hair healthy and super conditioned, without weighing it down. I will definitely repurchase this! The lady working at Sally's recommended I use this after coloring my hair. Great recommendation.
I love this color! It is a very darkish green/black. I like it, because it's the perfect match with Smut e/s.. which I use a lot. I really love the texture of the Powerpoints. They are so creamy and smooth. This looks great on green eyes.
Although Sweetie l/s looks fine on me, I feel that I'm wearing a color that is out of date. This pink is just kinda a mid-tone, barbie dollish color. I don't feel comfortable wearing it. I need something lighter, darker, or a different hue to make more of a statement. Especially for 2011.
Lipstick -MAC - Marquise D' (Blonde Brunette Redhead)
Connie11 1/20/2011 4:50:00 AM
I love this peachy/pink color. It is a lustre formulation, and it has just enough shimmer to make it super pretty. I got this in a holiday trio compact. I'm hoping I don't run out anytime soon, since this l/s isn't in MAC's regular collection!
I love how Prunella is a deep brownish plum, that doesn't wash me out. The powerpoint e/l in Bordeauxline is more of a true plum color, that doesn't look good at all with my fair skintone. Prunella is great to wear with smokey eyes.
Cleansers -Cetaphil - Daily Facial Cleanser (Normal to Oily Skin)
Connie11 1/19/2011 3:15:00 AM
I accidently bought the Normal to Oily Cleanser, instead of the gentle skin cleanser! I didn't notice until i pumped it out, and it was clear. Then I used it to remove my eye m/u, and it made my eyes sting like crazy! This formula is horrible. I'm sticking with the original!
Mascara -Maybelline - Define A Lash Volume Mascara
Connie11 9/17/2010 12:29:00 AM
I love the regular define a lash, but I wanted to get more volume so I tried this. This gives more volume without the clumping! I was using BE Buxom lash, but I think it's being discontinued. This is a great drugstore mascara. Not as great as BE Buxom, but it's the best I can find right now :-)
This color is a lot more sheer than it looks in the tube. However, I think it's just the right amount of peachy orange. If it was more pigmented, I don't think I could wear it. This gloss has no sparkle/shimmer. It gives a very wet glossy look with a nice hint of peach!
