I have searched for years for the perfect nude, my lips but better, liner and this is it! While I've found other nude liners I've liked a lot, they were always just a bit too warm or they would darken my lipstick a little too much if I filled in with liner first. This color matches my lips so closely that I can define my lips, apply gloss or sheer lipstick and it looks very natural. I find this is the only liner I reach for. If you have a problem with "nude" liners being a little too dark or warm, give this a try.
Bronzers -Clinique - True Bronze pressed powder bronzer - Sunkissed
Susan425 4/19/2011 2:58:00 PM
Very good bronzer for fair skin. Not orange, not shimmery. My only complaint is the hinge which holds the compact top and bottom together broke on my compact and also on my daughters. My two favorite bronzers are Clinique Sunkissed and Nars Laguna. I like that Clinique is less expensive than Nars, but they need to improve the compact.
These wipes take off all my makeup, even waterproof eye makeup. Great for days when you are tired and want quick and easy makeup removal. My only complaint is the sticky film that seals the package doesn't work well after it's been open a while.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Heel of Approval
Susan425 3/9/2011 1:48:00 PM
Love this foot cream! I was alternating between B&BW's I Love Shea and Heel Of Approval and will repurchase Heel Of Approval. I will always like Aquaphor for my heels/feet but if you want a cream instead of a petroleum jelly consistency, this is a very nice product.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - True Blue Spa I Love Shea Foot Cream
Susan425 3/9/2011 1:41:00 PM
I've been alternating between I Love Shea and Heel Of Approval, and I like Heel Of Approval better and will repurchase that one. I Love Shea moisturizes well but I don't like the scent or the tube. Heel Of Approval, also by B&BW comes in a tub, and even though the consistency is not as thick, I think it does a better job. My favorite treatment for dry heels is still Aquaphor.
A wonderful pencil for use on the waterline. A beautiful teal that isn't so dark it looks harsh, yet doesn't look bright and cheap. Applies evenly and smoothly on the waterline. My eyes are not a true blue (more blue/teal) so I was always searching for a teal pencil that wasn't too navy, but also not green. Will repurchase when it gets low. Been using it a few years and still love it.
Fragrances -Narciso Rodriguez - Narciso Rodriguez for her
Susan425 11/1/2010 11:25:00 AM
I really wanted to love this. I bought into all the hype I've read about it, sampled it, and purchased a big bottle of the EDT. It smells lovely (no pun intended) but it just doesn't last on me. For the cost, I'd like something that doesn't fade so quickly.
Eye Makeup Remover -Equate - Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover
Susan425 4/2/2010 10:06:00 AM
Love this eye makeup remover. I've gradually switched to less expensive versions of basically the same eye makeup remover. Started with Lancome Bifacil, then Clinique, Mary Kay, Neutrogena, finally trying the equate brand. Works well for a fraction of the price of others.
This review is for Tan Towels plus. I've tried many different self tanners over the years, searching for the best one. I discovered these about two years ago and have never looked back. I get them from HSN so the price comes to about a dollar a packet for the 1/2 body. The color looks very natural on my pale skin, they dry quickly, the odor isn't bad at all and they are fantastic for travel. I honestly don't have anything negative to say about them. I've never experienced streaking. I work very quickly and rub them in well. Plus, they are one of the few self tanners that give nice color on my face. I do find that they work best if you let them develop longer than the 4 or so hours listed on the package. LOVE them.
Lotions/ Creams -Palmers - Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula
Susan425 12/16/2009 7:32:00 PM
This is really one that you need to smell before buying, you may love it or like me, you may not want this mixing with your perfume. I gave it a rating of 3 because it does moisturize well, I just can't get past the scent.
Lotions/ Creams -Aveeno - Daily Moisturizing Lotion
Susan425 12/16/2009 7:21:00 PM
My favorite drugstore moisturizer. Hydrates well, doesn't feel waxy or sticky, fragrance free so it doesn't interfere with perfume.
Mascara -Revlon - 3D Extreme Mascara - Blackest Black
Susan425 11/7/2009 8:16:00 PM
I bought this mascara because I thought the picture of the brush on the package looked nice and full. Upon opening the mascara I was disappointed to see that the brush was TINY. Didn't even look like the same brush. It works great on the lower lashes but I won't repurchase because I like a bigger brush. UPDATE: While I still think the brush is too small, I have found that this is the only non waterproof mascara I've tried that will hold the curl in my lashes. I'm starting to like it.......
Awful brush. Easily the worst mascara I've bought. To be fair, it's the brush that makes this mascara terrible, not the formula. The brush comes out coated with gobs of mascara and I've tried to wipe the wand, spin the brush to apply, all without success. Since I knew I was going to pitch it, just for the heck of it I took the brush from another mascara (CG Lash Exact) and used it with the DoubleTwist and the mascara was wonderful! Nice formula, crappy brush.
Self Tanners -Shiseido - Brilliant Bronze Quick Self-Tanning Gel
Susan425 9/18/2009 11:18:00 AM
Expensive, sticky, doesn't give much color. I've tried many different brands and this is the first self tanner I've bought that I threw out the bottle before using it all up.
Cleansers -Olay - Age Defying Daily Renewal Cleanser
Susan425 6/24/2009 10:20:00 AM
This product didn't remove all my makeup. Won't repurchase.
