I thought I would put a review in on this before my bottle goes in the trash - imo don't waste your money because this is not long wearing at all. In fact, it started chipping on the first day, despite my usual regimen of base coat, 2 coats of color, followed by a top coat. I have always been a big fan of regular Revlon polish and even of Top Speed, so I bought this expecting to like it, but was very disappointed. The color I bought is Vintage Rose, but I don't know if the results would vary depending on the shade.
Styling Products -Rusk - W8less Extra Strong Hairspray

This review is for W8less Plus hair spray. I use both the regular W8less for days when it isn't windy and my hair is pretty much the way I want it, and Plus on days when it is windy and when I'm trying to hold a certain style. The reviewers who say it's like spraying air, it does nothing - I would agree regarding the regular. It really is a lighter than air, a "little nothing" spray, just a little insurance for your hair. For a real hold, I use the W8less Plus. I like that there's no buildup even if you use it for several days between washes. And the smell is pretty pleasant, especially compared to L'Oreal Elnett, which I use to use and boasts that it disappears with the touch of a brush. I never found that to be true. Recently I've found W8less and W8less Plus in small travel sizes, too, which comes in handy.
Hair Removal -Olay - Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo

I bought this product last weekend (despite the $$ price) because the Nair facial hair remover that I have always used has started to leave the skin around my mouth red for up to 1 or 2 whole days after using it. I'm glad I read the reviews and especially the ones describing exactly how to use it successfully. I went ahead last night and tried it, following the package directions exactly, and it did a very good job I thought. There was some redness, but it only lasted no more than an hour, and this morning there was no trace of redness. But why in the world is it so expensive??? At least 3 to 4 times what I pay for Nair for Face, and for a whole lot less product. The box is huge compared to the two small tubes inside. So, 4 stars due to price and packaging.
Primer/ Corrector -Cover Girl - Simply Ageless Corrector

I bought this product to use along with the CG SA concealer in the under-eye area, but I found that it counteracts my eyelid redness too. I smooth it from lash to brow and it evens the skin tone out beautifully. Then I use a neutral matte shadow followed by my eyeliner and mascara and am really pleased with the results.
