Best Foundation Ever!!!! Great shades. Buildable coverage. Flattering. Lost lasting. Doesn't irritate sensitive skin. Mixes well with strobe cream for glowing healthy look.
Highlighters -Sephora - Tarina Tarantino- Sparkle Powder

I purchased the Tarina Tarantino Sparklicity Pure at Sephora after seeing it on the sales associate. This little pot of sparkle is marvelous! You get a TON of product for a low price. I imagine this one container will last for aaaaggggesssssss. The sparkles are fine, not large and loud. Adds a soft twinkle to your look. Best when used over your existing makeups to add pop. What I like best about this product is it doesn't migrate! So many of the pretty eyeshadows I like - even the make up for ever ones - end up migrating all over the face. This one stays put better than others! A great value. Fun to wear. Flattering shade. Easy to apply. Flatters mature skin and doesn't look silly/childish. If you want a little sparkle, i recommend this product to you. Enjoy!
Easily the most miraculous hair conditioner I've ever experienced. This transforms hair and makes it model silky. Worth the price if you can afford it. Glorious product.

This is my daily go-to lipstick. It is a very flattering shade, and feels good on without any nasty smell. LOVE IT
Hair -Kerastase - Resistance Double Force hairspray

Great hairspray! It's effective without being crunchy or hard. Does a great job keeping color treated hair from fading. My only complaint is i miss the old packaging that had it's own lid. The new packaging that just has a press down tab is dreadful in a bag! don't throw it in your bag or luggage, it will get all your things covered. ick
Sunscreen -La Roche Posay - Anthelios XL Face and Body Cream SPF 60

I love this product on my body. I don't use it on my face. But on my body it gives a great finish, not the normal slimey sunscreen look or feel, and is more like wearing a nice body lotion that is SPF ful. I recommend this to anyone! Even my child liked this. None of us burned, and it didn't irritate anyone's skin. A great vacation product or everyday use product!
Sunscreen -La Roche Posay - Anthelios XL SPF 60 Fluide Extreme

Excellent product! I have sensitive skin which is easily irritated and burned. This works great. Gives a good finihsh. Doesn't feel 'sunscreeny" or have that nasty shiney finish. Definitely recommend this!
Treatments (Eye) -Clarins - Sun Wrinkle Control Eye Contour Care SPF 30
GoldenKatie 7/23/2009 3:36:00 PM
I have been using Clarins sun care products for years and love them. This year i bought my usual supply and headed to the beach. I don' t know if they have changed the formulation but this eye sun care product bothered both my own and my childs and my husbands eyes. We tried a second tube, thinking maybe the tube was off (both came from Nordstrom) but same thing. I am sadly disappointed. Mustela for Baby was a better eye option. i wouldn't recommend this product now.
This is easily the worst smelling perfume I have ever smelt! It makes me nauseated to smell it on me or on anyone else. And it's so clingy it's hard to get rid of the smell, even with washing. It certainly has "staying" power but in this case it's not a good thing. Awful!
Primer/ Corrector -La Prairie - Cellular Treatment Gold Illusion Line Filler
GoldenKatie 7/23/2009 3:27:00 PM
As far as primers go, this is my favorite! I have tried many primers and all of them have annoyed my skin. This one does not bother my supersensitive skin. It does not feel heavy. It's light. A little goes a LONG way. The little gold flecks are not overwhelming, even on my fair pink undertoned skin. The product works well. It gives a gorgeous finish. I say if you can only have one primer: try this one! It's worth it.
Moisturizers -La Prairie - Cellular Radiance Cream
GoldenKatie 7/23/2009 3:19:00 PM
Wow! This puts my dermatologist out of business. The results are unbelieveable. My skin has NEVER looked this gorgeous. Healthy, bright, younger skin. I don't even need makeup now. However, it is stupidly expensive! if i could buy it again, i would. but reality is such that i can't afford to do so. It will however be my new benchmark for the ultimate cream. If you can buy this, DO!
Concealers -BeneFit Cosmetics - Erase Paste in Fair
GoldenKatie 6/1/2009 3:22:00 PM
I am completely amazed by this product! It's wonderful! I have very fair skin and hereditary dark undereye circles. I have spent my life looking for a decent under eye concealer. More often than not if i find something that covers adequately then it ends up giving me a reverse-racoon look whereby my undereyes are lighter/more matte areas. This product is a concealer and illuminator in one. It feels nice going on, is so blendable and effective! IT WORKS! I look like i'm not wearing concealer! this is my new favorite everyday go to item. great staying powder, even in heat and humidity. The package is, to me, utterly unexciting. Doesn't feel glamorous to me. So it's not eyecatching in the package. But it's effective, just like the product, so I'll over look that for such a great product. yes i recommend. Yes i will repurchase.
I love this powder. I was looking for a loose powder to set my makeup and yet not dull down my makeup nor add any colour to my makeup. This is it! I am thrilled! Very natural looking. I can't master the powder puff thing that came with it, and am instead using a MAC loose powder brush. I will buy this again
This has been my signature scent since i was 13. I love it. The floral is delicate. I find the spray dispensors just right. EDP is lovely.Lasts for a long time. Is stable. Feminine and classic.
I purchased the 3 piece gift set of Philosophy Surfer Girl at Sephora. I am so glad i did! This fragrance is lovely. Uplifting and fun. The products are gorgeous shades. I adore the Lotion. It leaves a gorgeus sparkle to the skin without fading. I twinkle! The exfoliating scrub was a disappointment to me. I like it and i'm using it and I'd get it again, BUT it doesn't soap up or bubble. Consistency wise it reminds me of that old St Ives Apricot Body Scrub from way back when. I sure hope Philosophy keeps the body lotion around and available on it's own. i adore it!
