Hair Color -Garnier - Nutrisse Permanent Creme Hair Color

After doing some research I finally decided to switch products. I used Revlon's Color Silk #71 for well over a year. My hair ended up getting worse and worse over time, completely dried out. I was afraid of trying a new color. My hair is blonde but has a lot of grey ! I tried Nutrisse #90. I wish you could see and feel the difference it has made. The color turned out absolutley beautiful and it was like a treatment because it's now nice and soft.
I also got this in the "Blue" kit. It includes a darker (brown) shade for the middle of the eyelid and another light (creamy peach) for hi-lighting the brow area. The blue is nothing like I have ever tried before. It's a light shade, unless you want to add more coats. It makes my blue/grey eyes look stunning and so rested. The eyeliner is a golded tone, which surprised me on how nice it looked on my lower lash line. I did not care for the darker shade, and I wish the packaging was easier. These come in little pods with screw on square tops. The brush is VERY nice !
This product irritated my eyes to such an extreme!! They remained "bloodshot" looking for two days and my skin was red & dry. I'm always carful about applying creams anywhere near my eyes. This product is the absolute worst that I have ever tried in the last 20 years.
This is just an average product. Too expensive for what you get !

After searching this site for info on a good water-proof mascara....I came across these great post !! Gave Bourjois a try. Absolutly the BEST !! I know this will be perfect year round. It has been flawless in this 90 degree weather. Plus I also exercise with it on....NO messy problem !! I have very light blonde eyelashes. It took only two fast coats and I had nice dark & plump lashes. :)
Pressed Powders -Laura Geller - Matte Maker Invisible Oil Blotting Powder w/Brush

I like to brush this powder around my hair line. It works perfect for controlling sweat. Great for summers hot weather or working-out. I use it every day and no....it's not visible. "A dab will do ya."
This is one of the best eyeliners that I have tried in the last 20 years of wearing make-up. I bought a 2 pack that came with "Mocha"(drk brwn) & "Velvet" (Grey) colors. I have used the mocha at least 3 times a week. I have had it for 3 years !! However it's now 2 inches long. LOL A little running/smudging by the end of the day.....But, better than most. I have no problems wearing this even if I'm going to exercise.
I have very dark circle on my fair skin, and this product worked wonders! It also has a little highlighting effect. Fast to use....(which is a major plus for me, always in a rush.) It's NOT liquid...It's similar to a powder to cream type. Easy & fast to blend. :)
Too much shimmer & sparkle. I have fair skin with a little tan. For a bronzer, I found this to be wayyyy too light in color. I'm now using Laura Geller Bronzer, which is a true bronzer!!
Lipstick -Alexis Vogel - Alexis Vogel Lipstick in Smooch

I have bought three of the lip stains in different shades. Basically they all end up looking the same. I feel they have the same core pigment. I still love them because they have staying power!!! The only way that I have found to change the color, is with the different glosses. I would purchase again only if & when I run out.
