I LOVE THIS and IT'S A WINNER!!! It beats all the other eye primers I've tried hands down. Gives your lids a smooth appearance and your eyeshadow stays put until you take it off. It's a 10!!
Eyeliner -NARS - Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner - Via Veneto

I purchased this in Sephora and told the SA I wanted an eyeliner for my waterline that didn't fade or smear. She suggested Nars. I love their eyeshadows and eyeshadow primer. THIS IS A LOSER! Put it on my waterline and within an hour it faded. Applied again same thing. So disappointed in this eyeliner I returned it.
I was at Sally's and never heard of this brand and decided to give it a try. I'm SO IMPRESSED! Doesn't chip and is VERY long lasting. I did put on a base coat (CND stickey) and top coat (Seche Vite) It's been almost a month and still looking good. Move over OPI this Finger Paints could have something on you.
One of the best drug store mascara!! It gives volume and doesn't clump lashes. I use an eyelash curler first, then apply a couple coats of mascara. Waiting a couple minutes before applying another coat of course. I compare this with DIORSHOW UNLIMITED. But, the Volume express the colossal beats it!
I bought this for a eye shadow base and didn't like it at all! WHY?? It creased and seemed greasy. I returned it, and the SA told me to try MAC paints. I purchased the color bare canvas. It comes in a tube and be careful not to squeeze to much. I learned. I put it on my hand and apply with a BBrown eye shadow brush. It's a long lasting base.
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - 20% Shea Butter Hand Cream

I love this hand cream and the scent too. Makes my skin soft and dries quickly with no greasy hands. I have used this for 5 years.
I received a sample of this and glad I did. Over-hyped product! They say it's in all the makeup artist's bag! Did nothing for me.
Foundations -Elizabeth Arden - Flawless Finish - Mousse Makeup

I was using this for 12 years. But, I changed to Clarins tinted moisturizer. I have been using Clarins for 3 years now. It seemed like Elizabeth Arden changed her formula of the flawless finish mousse makeup. I notice it settled into fine lines and wasn't as dewy as it used to be. I'm all about DEWY. Especially in the winter months. Hmmm.. maybe they went back to the orginal formula again with all these positive reviews.
I really loved this stuff. BUT, I know what happened to it. They changed the ingredients. I have an old one from a few years back and purchased a new one. Nothing like the old one. The new one dries your hair out and make's it stiff. CHI go back to the orginal recipe. The new one sucks!!
I agree 100% with the last 2 reviewers. DO NOT WASTE YOUR $$. Sucks! Doesn't stay on vanishes in the waterline within a minute of applying.
I'll have to agree with a lot of the reviewers on this. If you apply 2 coats the color is lavender/ grey shimmer. I should have stopped there. BUT no... when I applied the 3 coat that's when the blue tone's came out. Next time only 2 coats.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero
LAsCene 2/25/2011 9:56:00 PM
I wanted an eyeliner for the waterline. Decided to try urban decay 24-7 eye pencil in zero. That's exactly what it is a BIG 0!! NADA! Didn't stay on at all had to keep reapplying. Even then it vanish. I took it back. Didn't impress me at all. Still on the hunt for 1 pencil that won't move or smear in the waterline.
One of my favorite eyeshadow for the outer corners. I'll have to agree with the previous reviewer. I also will put a gold on the lids. I use YSL cream #5. Really makes eyes pop. Love this color for brown eyes and hazel too.
I 'm in Love with this stuff. People ask me all the time where did you get your nails done. When I tell them I did it myself . They can't believe it. I love it under bright colors too. OPI ya listening... Make more colors...please!
I received samples of this. I ended up loving it and buying a full bottle. Wish, I didn't love such an expensive skin care line. I find it hydrates the skin and my skin doesn't feel tight. I use one pump for my entire face. I'll wait 30 minutes and put on Sisley global anti aging cream. Love this combo. In the winter months I use Sisley global anti aging cream extra rich. Try this line out if you have DRY, Sensitive skin. Get some samples first.
