Lip Gloss -TheBalm - Plump Your Pucker in Cocoa my Coconut
Tuperplex 6/24/2005 10:17:00 PM
This is a great colour by itself or on top of a neutral lipstick colour. I love the colour and texture. There is a slight tingle. It doesn't really plump your plucker but it's a great lipgloss! This colour is great on various shades of pink lipstick!
Love the price for what you get with this product. It's going to last you a long time!! It's a nice lilac silvery colour similar to Annabelle's eyeshadaw called "Aura." Practically idential in colour. I use Annabelle's Aura and then put a bit of Kitschmas on top.
I love Softlips!!! I use it as a base before I put my lipstick on or I wear it on its own. It's so moisturizing. This product provides sun protection for your lips.
I love the brushes!!! I wish QUO would come out with more. Great prices and quality. You don't have to pay an arm and a leg to have great brushes.
Ironic as it may sound, after working many years at Shoppers, I never gave much to QUO eyeshadows. I just wish they had a bigger selections of colour. They are reasonably priced and have great staying power.
It took me two attempts to get the right tan. Apparently, you exfoliate the day before and moisturize. Then, you put the lotion on really dry areas, not all over your body and then, apply the lotion. It's all about trial and error. The tan looks pretty good on me. Too many steps for me. My next product to try from St. Tropez is the mousse.
The scent is not too strong but just a hint of sweetness. It's feminine. I tend to like citrus scents but this one ranks as one of my new favourite scents. Pink Sugar is a good daytime perfume.
For the summer, I've opted to various pink shades. This lipliner is a great match for various shades of pink. Once again, prices for Annabelle lipliner is reasonable. Love it!
I've been using this lipliner for years. I used to work at a major drug store in Canada and a lot of the cosmeticans think it's a great product. You can use this lipliner colour with so many neutral lip colour. Great price!

This makeup eye remover from Almay is amazing!! It takes off water resistent/waterproof mascara such as Shisiedo! It's great stuff! It's reasonable priced and the packaging is appealing. The product is as good as high end products in this category.
Lip Gloss -Christian Dior - DiorKiss "Lychee Rose 488"

As much as I love the colour, the smell didn't sit too well with my senses. I love the other flavours in this line.
I gotta say this primer is fantastic! You only need to use a little bit and it goes a long way. Great coverage and you use less liquid foundation. Two travel size bottle of this product is cheaper than the actual full size. You get approximiately 3 ml more. It's $19.50 per travel size at Sephora. Great stuff!
Palettes -Smashbox - "Tips of the Trade" 11-pc Color Kit
Tuperplex 5/18/2005 8:55:00 AM
I received this 11 pc colour kit from The Shopping Channel (in Toronto). I saw an advertisement for it in the Metro and I just had to order the Show Stopper last week! For $60 Cdn, it is a bargain!!! Now, it's $89.99 Cdn. I've heard of Brow Tech and it's amazing. It sets your eyebrow in place! Love the lip gloss. It doesn't feel too sticky! I love the eye lash primer and the mascara. The brush is amazing and it gets into the corners. I'm going to have fun trying all the products. Though, the makeup bags are alright. Not particularily crazy about the design.
I've been wearing this fragrance for years. I love the light citrus scent. I just wish that it would stay on longer.
Lotions/ Creams -Fresh - Sugarbath Body Lotion in Lemon
Tuperplex 5/12/2005 12:21:00 AM
As much as I love the scent, the lotion is not very rich. The lemon body oil will provide the extra moisturizing that the lotion doesn't. Give it a try!! It's great for people with dry skin. Once again, the product is pricey.
