What a great color - currently wearing this on my toes but can't wait to put it on tanned hands in the summer! A lovely shimmer free bright pink...two coats and it was perfect.
This is my holy grail conditioner! My hair is healthier and shinier than it has ever been. I don't find this conditioner weighs down my hair at all even though I use it almost every day. Another 'must have' product!
This is one of those rare products that can't be bested by one more expensive! I've noticed a great difference in my skin since I started using this product. It's wonderful for blackheads and will improve the overall texture of your skin. A true 'must have' product!
While this is one of the best exfoliators I've ever used, I won't buy it again. It is far too expensive for just jojoba beads and honey! I also found that mine separated and required stirring to put it back together before each use, it would be much better in a squeeze or pump bottle so you don't have to dip your hands into the product to use it. Perhaps I'll make my own!!
Yes, this blowdryer is as good as everyone said it was! I can't believe how fast I can dry my hair now! My hair is actually in better shape since using this blowdryer, it looks healthy and shiny all the time! I love this product. On the downside however, I dropped it on my gym floor and the engine seized up so now my beloved dryer is in Iowa getting fixed!
I have been using and loving Christian Dior's Fascination mascara for about a year and it costs me about $25 (canadian)a tube. I just recently ran out of it so I though I'd pick up a tube of Full and Soft after hearing some raves and this stuff is great! It provides thickening and lengthening and holds a curl! I don't think I'll be going back to the Christian Dior since this stuff is only about 5 bucks! Highly recommended!
This is my all time favorite lip balm. It keeps my lips soft all year round and I love that I don't have to stick my finger into a pot of gloss! I hate that! This product is far better than Kiehl's, Smith's Rosebud Salve, and Philosophy's Kiss Me balm. I highly recommend keeping one in your purse, office drawer, car, wherever! I've got about 5 kicking around in different places!
Stila shadows have become a staple for me for many reasons. Firstly, I love building a collection of colors that I like (I'm working on 3 8-pans). Secondly, the colors are very flattering and easy to work with. And finally, these shadows stay put like none other. My current faves are: Wheat, Holly Golightly, Oasis, Starlight, Puppy, Storm, Cloud, Charm, Kitten, Sun, and Twig.
Tinted Moisturizer -Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20
Diana 6/3/2001 3:16:00 PM
While I wouldn't really call this a moisturizer, it is an amazing product. It leaves my skin looking radiant with just a hint of coverage and not a lot of shine. My sensitive skin has not reacted to this product at all. It doesn't accentuate the 'flakies' so it's great for both combo and drier skin types like mine. This product is now a staple for me, I highly recommend it!
After hearing raves on MUA, I went out and bought the 712 and 666 lipliners. These are the best things since sliced bread! I promptly swapped my MAC Spice liner and I will never again pay over $2.00 for a lipliner when these are the best!
This is a great everyday blush. It is quite similar in color to Stila's Fade, perhaps a little darker and about 10 times bigger. I love to wear this blush when I'm wearing a red lipstick, it doesn't clash but you still have that hint of color on the cheeks. I also use this blush as a base for NARS Orgasm, this way you get the definition and the sparkle!
Cleansers -Clarins - Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Plant Extracts [DISCONTINUED]
Diana 6/3/2001 3:05:00 PM
Foaming, yes. Gentle, no. This cleanser smells great but unless you have very oily skin this stuff will dry you up like the Sahara desert. After using this product once, my skin felt like I'd just had a face lift and then I had to battle the 'flakies' for a few days afterward. It doesn't remove eye makeup very well, in fact, keep it away from that area all together because it stings like crazy! You'd be much better off with a cleanser like Christian Dior's Refreshing Face Wash or Nuxe's Honey Gel Cleanser!
Moisturizers -Kiehls - Sodium PCA Oil Free Moisturizer
Diana 6/3/2001 3:00:00 PM
This is a great no frills moisturizer. It's perfect for skin that can be sensitive to fragrance or sunscreen. It is rich enough for drier skins like mine without clogging pores. This product is not a 'treatment' that will dramatically improve your skin but rather a great, basic moisturizer that provides a nice base for makeup application. If the Ultra Facial Moisturizer didn't work for you, I'd highly recommend this one!
I have noticed a huge improvement in the overall texture of my skin since I started using this product. My cheeks are much smoother and my complexion is more radiant. The fine lines under my eyes have all but disappeared. I would highly recommend this product but you have to stick with it to see results. You may need a little extra moisture as it's more of a treatment than a moisturizer, I use Kiehl's Sodium PCA over top.
