Finally found my holy grail after years and years of looking! Doesn't give you that thick lipstick feel, yet gives color that stays longer than a gloss. Just a good feeling on your lips plus color!! Doesn't last quite as long as other "stains" or long-lasting lipsticks, but on the other hand, it is not drying like those are. Love these!
This product came in Laura Geller's Baked Collection, which was a TSV from QVC. I love all the products, but especially love this blush! It is beautiful, with lovely swirls of color, and even a little gold shimmer. I love the soft, velvet texture, too.
Used in conjunction with the Elysee Fountain of Youth line diminishing gel, this combination is fantastic! I am older but have oily skin, and it has removed my blackhead trouble (no more treatments for removals, yay!) and it has completely balanced my skin. When I go without it, I can tell a difference within a half a day. These products (even the samples) are in beautiful glass bottles with pumps, so easy to use compared to some company's droppers. I have also noticed, although I have very few wrinkles, the ones I do have (11's) are almost gone. You can buy these two products plus their wonderfully light moisturizer for only $20 on HSN, in either the mature skin or universal for combination skin. I have tried the universal kit and have gone back to buy the full size kit--I do not want to be without it! There is also a forum on Delphi devoted to members who love this line.
Love this lipgloss, and the color is beautiful! Wonderful shimmery pink. Love that it isn't real sticky, and there is no smell or taste at all! Plus, they are long wearing. I just drank a 16 oz. glass of water and it's still there after 5 hours!
Makeup Brushes -Philosophy - In the Pocket Brush Set

I ordered this set from QVC for $25. I thought I was getting travel size brushes, but they are much smaller than travel size. The brushes are 3-4" in length and remind me of brushes that are included in palettes. The brush heads are fine for the e/s, lip, and liner brushes, but for the blending and blush brushes, they are way too small to do a good job on your face. Thumbs down, I'm sending these back. Shame on QVC for not mentioning the size!!
Skincare - Face -Le Mirador - Triple Action Revitalizing Moisturizer

I did not care for this skin care line from QVC. The smell of the moisturizer was awful, and it irritated my face.
I had good luck with the color I chose: "#2 non-stop lips." It's a rosey bronze and stayed that way on my lips. Reminds me of Mac Viva Glam IV. It *is* dry (like Outlast) but with the gloss on, it is comfortable. I like having the gloss and color together in the same tube, unlike the others on the market. It is also much cheaper than the others, $3.99. I'd buy again, but the colors are so limited, I only liked the one I bought!

No creases here! Received Scrapin' the Rail in a swap, and love the texture and look. I'd like to buy more of these!
This is my favorite lipstick right now. I wear it constantly. Love MAC lipsticks in general because of the vanilla scent and the moisturizing. Imagine, I had someone custom buy this for me sight unseen just because of recommendations from MUAers!!
Makeup Brushes -Bare Escentuals - Large Face Brush

I have two of these and have used them every day since 1998. I couldn't be happier.
Wonderful! I dust it on before the mineral foundation and get a beautiful finish. Then dust over the top of all my makeup when done. Carry it with me during the day, and you can't tell how many "layers" go on...just whisper light! A++++
Glee used to be my favorite until I found Beauty!! Beauty is just a bit pinker than Glee, and a little lighter. I'm a PPP with pink undertones, and it's perfect for me. I only have a small pot, but I'll be buying it in the large size!

I have a couple of these brushes...they are fantastic...and when sold in a BE kit on QVC, you just can't beat the price. Very high quality!
I loved this lipliner, but I was surprised because there was very little in the tube. Unless I had a defective one, I would not buy again for the money.
Lip Treatments -Bare Escentuals - Vitamin E Stick in Luscious

Scarey looking is right! Bright red, but it goes on very sheer and subtle. Also very moisturizing and soft. I like the look, but I cannot stand the smell. Mine smells like roses, and it bothers my allergies.
