Blush -Too Faced - Cocoa Rose Full Blooom Powder Blush

I'm an NW20. This is a perfect color for me. I wanted blush with NO glitter or sparkle. This is a beautiful matte that is not too bright, just a nice neutral pink shade. LOVE!
Only positive for me is that it added volume. It did not hold a curl for me. And my biggest problem is that it doesn't dry. It stays tacky and sticky. Yuck. :(
Shampoo -L'Oreal - EverPure Sulfate-free Color Care Shampoo

It's not horrible...but not great. It is hard to get out of the tube. Lathers well though. Reason I will not buy again is the scent. It smells exactly like men's green speedstick deodorant.
Treatments -Zapzyt - 10% Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Treatment Gel

This is a great spot treatment. When I feel a bump coming up, this dries it out before it gets ugly. :) Very drying, which is fine on a bump, but wouldn't rub this all over my face for that reason. For reference, I have normal, tzone-oily, acne prone skin.
Lip Gloss -Bare Escentuals - Buxom Lips Full Color Vanessa

This is beautiful. Whenever I go out with the girls for girls night...this gets passed around. I am always asked to whip out the "magic lipstick" when i get there. It looks great on all of us (6 girls age 33 to 40). I highly recommend this for a red lipstick...doesn't need to be layered with anything. Perfect !
My HG - and has been for about 4 years. Works well and smells amazing ! Will never use another hair spray.
Love this color - neutral pale gold. I am NW20 with green eyes and use this color two ways. 1 - As a wash with a fluffy brush on lid and crease when I do my winged liner and mascara... And 2 - On my lid with a medium brown in the crease blended... It's always so pretty.
Eye Makeup Remover -Almay - Moisturizing Eye Makeup Remover Pads

Love these ! Let me say though...I have dry skin around my eyes. So this actually gives me a little moisture. That being said, it gets everything off my eyes. Once done, i take a dry tissue and wipe off the oil and any makeup residue left. Handy little pads loaded with enough product to clean both eyes with one. Again, once eyes have been wiped, a little bit of tissue wipes away what is left. Works perfectly. HG for me - can't imagine anything working any better.
Lashes looked ok - nothing outstanding. And REALLY flaked on me. :(
Not a fan. Pros: No smudging or flaking. Lengthens well Cons: Straightens your lashes even after curing. Not much volume. And I see where some reviews said it left their lashes soft...not me...it made my lashes hard and crunchy. If you do try this mascara, remove it with water - it comes right off. I normally use the Almay moisturizing pads with are oily, and it wouldn't take this mascara off. My guess is that the mascara is well formulated not to smudge on oily skin, so oily makeup removers don't work. But a tissue with a little water, removed it easily.
Pro - My thick, wavy, color-treated hair was much softer and shinier. Con - The smell. I am not sensitive to smells, I can tolerate quite a bit. This product (like other reviewers have said) smells like a cigar. And not a good cigar. More like an old, cheap, rancid cigar. It's really bad. It actually made me nausious. I like what the product did for my hair. Just wish they could change the scent.
Mascara -Laura Mercier - Thickening & Building mascara

Seriously ? Yuck. I've been wearing mascara for 20 years and being the product junkie that I am, I have tried ALOT of different ones. I really think this may be the worst one. And I hate to say that because I like the Laura Mercier brand. This mascara left my lashes gummy and sticky all day. My lashes seemed to appear shorter and would not hold curl. And it smudged...big time. I kept at it for a week willing it to get better. Today I gave up. :(
I used this product for about 6 weeks because it made my lashes look incredible ! However...while my lashes looked great, about mid-day, my cheeks did not. I had to constantly brush the little black mascara flakes off my face. Sigh. My search continues...
Mascara -Christian Dior - Diorshow Black Out Mascara
SLK4CATS 1/18/2008 12:23:00 AM
I liked the formula a lot - big dramatic, glossy lashes. However, I did not like the brush. My lashes clumped together, so I had to take extra time with the lash comb to get them separated. I want a mascara that doesn't require extra steps. My search continues...
