I love this cleanser. Removes every trace of makeup and leaves my skin soft. I don't feel the need to use an additional cleanser after using this. In fact, I had very annoying sebascous filaments on my nose and using an oil cleanser with my Clarisonic worked miracles to loosen the sebum and clear them up about 70%.
Lips -Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain (All Shades)
angelbaby111 9/25/2012 6:07:00 AM
Love this stain/gloss. Keeps lips moisturized, stays with a gloss look, and doesn't come off until I eat something, which is fine with me. I like to brush my teeth after lunch and reapply anyway. I have # 15 which is a warm pink on me, and I just bought #5, which is a deeper rose pink. One coat of these, nice light finish, two coats and you get a deeper color payoff. I love the way it moves with your lips, no dry, clumpy, uneven wear. I highly recommend. I'm an NW25 for reference.
You guys have all had em', those low breaks in your nail. These little bandages are prefect to hold the break/crack until it grows out. You have to replace them ever 4-5 days, but they peel of easy. Completely transparant, excellent even in water. I highly recommend!
Mascara -Estee Lauder - Double Wear Zero Smudge Lengthening Mascara

This will be my go to mascara from now on. What a great lenghtening mascara! And it doesn't budge until you take it off with either warm water or eye makeup remover. Definately HG status. I have this in Black.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Colorburst Lipgloss in Hot Pink 010

This is a pretty pink, not too garish. Stays on well, and when it wears, it wears evenly. No smell or taste. I am an NW25 and the color suits me. Not too glittery, just right.
Lipstick -MAC - Pro Longwear Lipcreme Collection in Overtime
angelbaby111 5/2/2012 6:08:00 AM
This is a baby pink with no blue in it, looks great with my NW25 skin tone. I also think it brings out my hazel eyes. I do apply just a little gloss in the middle of my upper and lower lips just to give it a little moisture, but its not necessary. It is long wear, and I will repurchase as I get a lot of compliments on it. Oh, and I like to put two coats on just to amp up the color.
Absolutely love this cream shadow. I wear it alone most times and it brings out my hazel eyes. In addition, this is the longest wearing shadow ever. My eyes look the exact same at 7 pm as they did at 7 am. I also use the double wear eyeliner with this, perfect combo. When its time to come off, one swipe of an eye makeup remove and its gone. Great product.
Background: I'm 47 with occasional breakouts and large pores on my nose and chin. For those of you who use a Sonicare toothbrush, you'll understand my review exactly. Once you start cleansing with the Mia, your face will never feel clean without it, same as brushing with the Sonicare vs a regular toothbrush. Results: Pores on nose and chin are barely visable and my skin is soft and most importantly, clean. Its also not as oily during the day. I use it twice a day with Alpha Hydrox foaming cleanser and it works like a charm (regular brush, although mine did come with a brush head for sensitive skin). I have gotten compliments on my skin glowing and its prompted three people I know to purchase one. Price: Its well worth the money, take the plunge and forget about it. You won't regret it.
I'm on my third compact of this foundation. Its perfect for my oily skin and does not cause breakouts. The color match is perfect, NW25. I have large pores and this does the trick to cover them without looking too heavy. I'm 47 and this does not fall into the little fine lines that come along with aging.
Lip Treatments -City Cosmetics - City Lips Advanced - Clear
angelbaby111 3/19/2011 7:05:00 AM
I am very pleased with this product. Here's some background. I'm 46 years old and I have had both Juvederm and Restylin fillers in my lips. While I liked the fillers, they hurt, felt lumpy for quite a while, and looked a little trout-like. After trying City Lips original (once all the filler was gone), I liked the night formula best. I have since tried this new formula in clear and found it to be even better than the original nighttime formula. Not as runny, it stays put and gives a nice pillowy effect, without looking, well, fake. If you're looking for a nice, soft effect, this is the product for you. I promise, it works!
Liquid -Mary Kay - Time Wise Matte Wear Liquid Foundation

This is a great addition to the MK line. It gives a great, natural finish, yet hides imperfections. It did reduce oil, and it stays fresh all day.
Moisturizers -Mary Kay - TimeWise Age fighting Moisturizer C/O
angelbaby111 1/30/2011 9:24:00 AM
I've been using this moisturizer for years in combination with the cleanser. Great stuff. It moisturizes well without making me any more oily, and most importantly, does not break me out. If you're looking for a get the job done moisturizer, this is it. No fancy ingredients to make you younger, thinner, smarter, just moistrizer that works. I highly recommend.
Cleansers -Mary Kay - TimeWise 3-in-1 cleanser C/O
angelbaby111 1/30/2011 9:20:00 AM
I've been using the cleanser for years. It does a great job of cleansing and leaving skin soft, but not greasy, and certainly never dry. Excellent year-round cleanser, I highly recommend.
For all the ladies wearing Revlon Colorstay foundation or Estee Lauder Double Wear...this soap will take it completely off! Gentle and effective, I love it. Its the only product that removes all, and I mean all remains of a long-wearing foundation.
This is a great lip gloss with the staying power of a lipstick. Very moisturizing and the color is great. Feels great on the lips, not sticky.
