This mask really saved my hair & my daughter's hair. It leaves your hair soooo luxuriously smooth and soft. Previously, both of us had severely damaged hair. My daughter's hair really takes a beating with sun & swimming - this is a healing product!
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational - Bronze Beam

Wow, this is soooo gorgeous and it's sexy. I was trying to find this exact shade! This is the shade that you can pull off looking natural but polished and it just adds the depth and prettiness that looks feminine and attractive. I am going to have this in my bag at all times. I absolutely adore this one.
This is a really pretty soft pink with fine gold shimmer - a little too much shimmer for me. For some reason I feel a little self-concious when I have colors like this on at work. It seems too babyish. Guess I will stick with nonshimmer of the time & use this for fun.
I love this color - I used a good basecoat under it and didn't have any problems whatsoever with streakiness. I have worse trouble with streakiness with more expensive Essie products, go figure. It looks like other reviewers did have trouble with streaking - all I can say is it must have been the Orly basecoat - it helps a lot. I just used one coat of Social Ladder, and then I used a clear topcoat over, I think it's the Revlon one. This polish is really pretty - a sheer & milky whitish clearish tone with a little glimmer - a perfect neutral. Mine has really held up, I think it works better with less coats. I think it makes my nails look clean & fresh. I have been looking for something like this. I'm pleased & will keep using.

I recently had an amazing experience with this product. My daughter swam every day this summer. We use kids shampoo that doesn't sting, but also use high quality full strength adult conditioner. It is Nov & her hair was still dull & dry & thin... really not looking as beautiful as I know it can. I was getting her ready to have a silhouette drawn - it's artwork that shows the profile. I used a ton of this product on it to smooth it into a half up half down style. No problems, all went well, etc. But guess what? It has completely transformed her hair. It seems to have healing properties! The improvement has lasted even though we have since rewashed & conditioned several times without reapplying. I am going to try this as a treatment for myself as I have highlighted hair. The only bad thing about this product is that it is hard to find.

love, love, love! Long lasting, great color, thank you MUA - this board is the reason I found this amazing eyeshadow that also happens to be a steal. I'm heading back to purchase additional colors!
I used to work in cosmetics/fragrance & I can tell you that this fragrance is something that men absolutely went nuts for. Out of hundreds of fragrances, this is the one that seemed to have a hold on people. I guess it's not as popular anymore & some people have referred to is as 80s. But I think everyone appreciates a fragrance that is distinctive. I think the main thing that stands out about this one to me is its effect on people. It was extraordinary the way that people would seek this fragrance out. It is memorable, smells wonderful.
Polishes -Sally Hansen - Insta-Dri Nailpolish Colors

I should have checked this board 1st... agree with others on the quick sand color of SH Insta Dry - it clumps/streaks. Works out a bit with the second coat but dries to a bumpy emery-boardish finish. Sounds like it may just be a problem with this shade of Insta Dry.

Recently rediscovered this in my stuff - absolutely love it, but now realize that it's discontinued - this is so sad, always happens. Neutrogena please bring it back!!!!
Lipstick -Victoria's Secret - very sexy melt lipstick
Gabi 3/3/2008 8:48:00 PM
I love this color - I have green eyes & blond hair, med skin. It is darker than most nudes but I really like this. It really gives the lips a lovely, finished look. I wear this in the day to work. It's always in my purse as a go-to natural, but polished lipstick. I have been wearing glosses & they are nice but they don't have the lasting power & polished look of a lipstick. I don't think $12 is too expensive & I have repurchased it, which I almost never do! I'm not crazy about the packaging - I don't really like pulling out a tube with SEXY in huge fushia letters on the lipstick. It's sort of desperate. I hear they are rethinking this type of marketing. Anyway, all in all it's a great product & I will probably buy it again. Update - repurchased AGAIN, and the packaging is different now - I like the new packaging better!
Without question the absolute best product you can possibly use to get rid of cracked heels and calloused feet. I am so please to have found this & I'm using it in time for sandal season!!! I have read that people are getting overnight results. I did have quite a difference overnight, but I am looking for complete healing & am not there yet. I've been using it for about a week & my feet just keep improving. I had callous & cracked heels & callouses on my big toe & the bottom forefoot (yuck). This problem persisted despite diligent and intensive skin care. Now I have finally found something easy that works very very well. I have added sally hansen pumice foot scrub to help speed the process & I'm very pleased. I thoroughly recommend this product.
This product is great for preparing my feet for callus removal lotion. I'm getting great results & just in time for sandals preparation! One thing I don't like about this at all is you have to be the Incredible Hulk to open the lid to use it though!
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - HIP brilliant shine lip gloss - adoring

This is a lovely long lasting nude daytime color. Great for day. I keep it in my purse. I think these glosses look younger & fresher than lipstick but still offer enough color for us lipstick lovers. I have 4 of these now & when there is a sale I'm getting more!
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - HIP Brilliant Shine Lipgloss - Enticing
Gabi 1/29/2008 12:04:00 AM
I love this one & all of the other HiP glosses I have tried. I've spent a lot on these so I'm going to watch for sales before I get a few more. This color is a fabulous reddish color - a little goes a long way, and the color does not bleed/travel like some lipsticks do. Love it! Every now & then you just gotta have red lips!
