Moisturizers -Mary Kay - Timewise Age Fighting Moisturizer
MarkRepFLA 5/19/2006 12:48:00 PM
I am only 22, and really wasnt keeping up on any specific skin-care regimin. The MK miracle set appealed to me because literally it takes 3-4 minutes and your done, and this includes exfoliating/freshening/toning/moisturizing and protecting! Yah thats right 3-4 minutes. The Timewise moisturizer is : Non irritating, Non Greasy, Non fragranced (which I think it very important) some fragrances become annoying when your using them everyday 2 x's a day. I can't believe I haven't been treating my skin better, it really does make a difference in over skin feeling, and health. I find when using this set (incuding this moisturizer) My MU looks even better maybe its my self confidence, maybe its the Miracle Set I have No clue all I know is it didn't exist prior to using this MK Miracle Set! Amazing. 2 Gripes: It's Pricey ..but you get more for your money vs dept. store brands A PUMP would be better for the moisturizer
Moisturizers -Estee Lauder - Daywear Plus Cream for Normal/Combination skin

At First I really was hooked with the cucumber smell..! Now I'm not so thrilled, not too mention this product (even using a little) Is to greasy, and when I apply my foundation I get very bad coverage. I do love EL MU especially their eyeshadows, I have yet to be thrilled with anything "skin care" and those hefty prices don't help either, especially when I find for me they are not doing what they claim :(
A little bit goes a long way. I had never used an eye "primer" before and figured it was just another product gimmick. But It really does extend the wear of the shadow for me my eyeshadow looked as I had just applied it . I had put it on at 10 am and washed my face at 11pm but i looked in the mirror and there was my eye shadow as fresh as ever I was tunned! This is great for people who have crease problems and overall mid day eyeshadow frustration! I love it! Great Product.

Wonderful, Wonderful Wonderful!!, This is it your serach for the best MU remover ends at this product..well at least mine did!! So gentle NO GREASY OILY FEELING after!!! It's like a miracle, I used to use lancome which was a step up from the oily maybeline I originally used, but it still had the after-oily factor. This product is gentle effective, and leaves you soft and smooth! Run to the nearest Pink Lady!!! And Get it!
Cleansers -Mary Kay - Timewise 3-in-1 Cleanser and Moisturizer
MarkRepFLA 2/25/2006 12:14:00 PM
I agree with everything in Kimmah's Review. I too have dry skin and I can use this product more than 2x's in a day am and pm with no patches or redness. I love the way my skin feels after using this I follow it up with my favorite moisturizer and am good to go for MU application it is also amazinggggg MU remover too, I use a pretty long lasting foundation that the company claimed could only be taken off by using their products, however this cleanser did BETTER at taking off my MU than the other pricey remover! I will keep up with this cleanser update to come in one month of use :)
I had super high expectations on this because of Nez Harry Fremonts part in it.. I mean I loved Miracle , Eternity moment Romance...all bottles I keep coming back to in different seasons..so when I heard he did this I thought it was going to be something I'd enjoy...but I do not unfortunetly.I tend to not like anything with a chocolate note in it, with the exception of TM Angel. For me I did think the chocalte note was a bit much and maybe ruined the overall smell, maybe I would like it without the truffle note. Very Very pretty and practical bottle, which in most cases Avon't perfume bottles are flimsy plastic or glass that is uncomfortable shape in your hand. Thats a nono...all I have to say is I had Tile flooring and a freaky shaped perfume bottle, lost hand of it and smashhhhhhhhhhhh.! So this is very nice which is why I gave it an extra lippy. Other than that I will not re-pruchase :( fo rthe full size BLNT Avon, hopefully the next Perfume will be better.
..Wanted to like this but found the following upon recieving Shine Supreme.- Ok they made the l/g appear to be a fuller size in the advertisements..however the tube is the size of my pinky! - I put it on and was in some sort of weird "yuck" state immediatly it went on like thick weird cream and I had to keep strokin it on to get an even color. Then I pursed and searched for the "shine" part in the mirror..nowehere to be found. - The color was awful - it felt like I had plastic wrap on my lips after an hour, yet it stayed on for 3. -Lastly don't and I repeat don't wipe your lips with a napkin or something because it will stickkkkkkkkk! somethin nasty! I am highly disapointed I don't understand what they were thinking they were off on every single thing :( blah 1 lippie for you Avon so sorry! IMO if you want a shinier l/g go with another MUA product reviewed L/G this one may disappoint..
Nothing impressive. It's smells a bit more older and sophisticated. I like young fun and girly. I would maybe wear this scent when I get to be a bit older/matureer, because it isn't horrible. It just isn't unique it smells like something else but I can't put my finger on what ??sorry??I will not be purchasing the full size. I'll stick with Goddess.
mmm Jsmine and soft musk my faves! Got this because it smelled real nice in the catlog and the price was a steal, I am actually a perfume addict as well as a makeup addict, and this one is very nice. Almost like CK but lighter and more feminine. A steal for the price too! I will repurchase if Avon decides to have it stick around.
This Avon scent will forever remind me of my dear Grandmother, it's her signature scent, she's been wearing and repurchasing since the late 80's. It's really not for me a little too musky and strong I feel it is older more sophiticated and wise scent. If I was ever to purchase this it would solely be to fill me up on good memories of my beloved Grandmother.
My opinion on Haiku is that it is just a "nice" smell. It's not very strong. It has a bit of a woodsy smell to it. I like it for summer,and I like how it is very inexpensive. I'd re-purchase this on account of how I do personally like it and it's dirt cheap.
I just tried a Goddess sample! At first when it was on, I really didn't know what to think about it , it was a bit strong...then about an hour later that dry down made the prettiest smell! Like the other reviewers mentioned very very girly, as a matter of a fact it reminded me of something from when I was younger I've yet to remember what but anyway! Light,powdery and probably the first and only Avon related perfume that has ever lingered on me through to the next morning! So now I am on the hunt to get it, it could very well be an all year round smell or just summer whatever you like really. I'd recommend this for anyone whom like powdery floral scents, and wants a soft feminine scent. And anyone whom is hesitant of Avon fragrence, give it a try you may really really like this one. I am looking forward to purchasing or even better HOPEFULLY getting a swap for Goddess!
Concealers -Avon - Personal Match Concealer in Neutral
MarkRepFLA 7/12/2005 8:26:00 AM
I agree with the previous reviewer, the tube is very small thinner/skinnier than a chapstick or lipstick tube. I got "medium" perfect match for me not too light not dark right in that area of "close to perfect" as NOTHING really is perfect :) I also agree that it has a dewy coverage, so it is not hard/dry like other concealers I have purchased in the past. It did the job however, my undereyes were not as dark! I would definetly repurchase, there could be improvements on 1) the size you have to give us gals more product when it comes to concealer! why companies do this I don't know?? maybe there is a logical reason but for me, I go through concealer in a MONTH 2) this packaging is alright I gave 3 lippies mostly due to that, only beacause I have dealt with similar tubes like this from AVON and in the past 6 out of 10 have broken. So this tube concept has got to go, unless they can make it stronger. It's too small and fragile for my ARTILLERY of makeup in my bag !!hehe I'd recomend this concealer for a girl whom is looking to save time and a trip to the department store, also whom is on a budget and those whom are forgiving of LOW to MID end beauty products.
After trying the scrub I had to try the wash! I found that the Kiwi lotus wash lathered up very richly and almost had a honey-like texture. That familiar lovely floral smell wasn't strong at all. I later found after drying off that the smell that I loved so much after the dry-down from the polish, wasn't evident, so that was a disapointment, but good for the fact that you can wash in this great smell and then wear any perfume you want and not have a funky courtship of smells! The flip-top tube is an absolute plus for shower. And the size you get for this product line is very good for the price that you would pay for lower end drugstore type brand. With that said, I would definetly buy this wash again, I really like this line for summer, it is the highlight of my day after a looong 85 degree plus lawn mowing 1/2 an acre here in Fl. Very refreshing!! I highly recommend to ANYONE who likes floral smells, light smells that arent overpowering. And someone in the search for a clean , fresh summer scent on a budget!
Lip Gloss -mark - Glow Baby Glow Luxe in Melon Luxe
MarkRepFLA 6/10/2005 5:59:00 PM
This is the first "luxe" style hookup I have purchased. I found that in this style hookup there is not a soft-tip applicater instead it is more of a little lipbrush, I did not care for that so that made 4 lippies for me :) I like the original hook-up applicater it works well with the hookup, this brush makes the products a little more goopier. HOWEVER I love the color it is very pretty and the sparkles really vamped it up in a good way. I think these glosses are great for an evening wear, or summer. I am dying to try Lotus LUXE due to the great reviews I saw.
