So far so good, the biggest thing is it holds a curl! That's a big deal for me I have blonde non-existent lashes. I just tried it today so I'll see how waterproof it is. But it's a DS mascara and to find a good one in today's economy is a good deal :-)
Lipstick -Maybelline - Volume Seduction Lipstick - In the Nude

Ladies these are on clearance at Walgreens right now for $2.19 so why not? I do the "smokey eye nude lip" thing and am always searching for h/g nude. My favorite ever was a Sephora brand lippie that of course they don't make any more but I never give up.
Foundations -Revlon - ColorStay Mineral Mousse Makeup

Not bad not great. I read in November Lucky magazine that this was a good matte foundation and I've sworn off h/e makeup (still a prisoner to h/e skincare, though LOL). I know Halle Berry does the ads and for a drugstore product it seems nice. I have a lot of sun damage from being young and sunbathing (13 years in Phoenix) so I need coverage but don't want anything mask-y. Will update when I've worn it all day to see how that goes.
I guess the only thing that matters is that I buy this product over and over again. It's a no brainer when I need to put on foundation and a high spf sunscreen as a I am running out the door late for something as usual LOL. I destroyed my skin when I was young sun bathing so I need a little more coverage than most people. I dunno ya'll I just like it...update 02/06/10: bought it again for the same reasons listed above have to move the rating from 4 to 5 lippies for that :-)
I bought Cinnamon Stick as a doppelganger to NARS Hot Voodoo and it's great! $5.50 at WalMart. they're creamy, pigmented, cute case they have no funny smell or taste. Thank you Maybelline for this product!
Lipstick -Estee Lauder - All Day Lipstick Frosted Apricot

I used to love to get these in the EL bonuses until they stopped putting in this color and changed to others. but I never forgot this one. It's perfect for the beach now that I live in Hilton Head SC area. The tenacity seems pretty good and the pretty case reminds me of the one Marilyn Monroe had in the movie Niagra. Will purchase again.

I use this as a room refresh spray. Sorry but to me it smells cheap, like the $14.99 I paid for a 1.7 oz eau de perfum bottle at TJ Maxx. Maybe I am just too old for it. I will stick to my Chanel #5 Eau Premiere. At least I never paid full price for it.
Treatments -Avalon Organics Botanicals - Vitamin C Vitality Facial Serum

Back about 10 years ago, Dior made a Vitamin C line that was excellent but they discontinued it (used to get it at Sephora). I've ruined my face by all the sun tanning I did as a youngster :-) I think is a marvelous bargain for the quality of product. I've tried Clinique Even Better-zip nada null set. This is my second bottle of this. I do endorse it. I got it for $17.99 at Publix. At WalMart ( who boasts the lowest prices) it sells for $22.99, so shop around.
Such hubris it calls itself Perfection I am blonde blonde and have very sparse lashes this just clumps into a big clump. Does Wal Mart take things back? I know nicer places like Sephora and Nordstrom will. I took a nail polish back to Beauty Express and the witch there harassed me so bad I wrote an email to the company. I digress.. the mascara? maybe it will get better when it's not so fresh and wet but I must see the EL and Lancome versions...
Let me let you know how big 5 ounces: is it's a lot! This is a big bottle and it's a good thing I like it. I used to use #5 and #22. This is like a bridge between them it's has a white quality that I like. Wish I knew more about it but it's great because we are just getting into the long hot and humid summer of the beach in South Carolina. So now that I can I am going to put this in the fridge so I can spritz myself before I leave:-)
when will I learn that in pretty much everything you get what you pay for? This was at WMT so cheap I don't even remember in shade of plum as usual I'll just go back to my Benefit Bad Gal it's a no brainer.
Is there ANY mascara out there that will hold a lash curler's curl??? I fell for it too the sexy wand and well give Rimmel a try...I would like to buy a high end mascara just don't know which one help!
where oh where has this product beenn all my life? always been afrraid of it because I thot it would be too much coverage but now with my 44 yr old skin after 13 years in the Phoenix sun, I need this product. I've got Nude Ivory. I'm staying with my parents in a small town so I've been having to buy stuff at Wal-Mart no bonus points at my U;ta:-( if you want good coverage this is it.
Every time I break down and buy a h/e mascara I always regret it. Like now with this product. 1. it's not waterproof 2. doesn't hold a curl (like CG Lashblast) 3. it was $23.50 plus tax. That's what? three tubes of Lashblast?Can Nordie's take back a used product? I mean I had to use the mascara to decide it was (ahem) a ripoff. BAck to the d/s...
I bought this in Deliciously Dark i am 44 years old can't bring myself to wear black polish but this is as dark I think. Love the new brush. Have yet to wear it long enough to tell how the staying power is will revisit to tell.
