I am here to give my honest opinion about the Re9 skincare line. I tried this product about 5 years ago and didn't see any miracles so I wasn't too interested when my friend started selling it. To my surprise she sent me the entire skincare line and I used it for almost a week, and whoa!!!! My hormonal acne that was getting really troublesome, despite many trips to my esthetician, started to clear up! I am ecstatic to wake up and see clearer skin for once. I have tried many products on my skin and have paid over $100 for just one moisturizer so I feel the products are really not way overpriced. To feel good about my skin is worth all of the money in the world IMO.
Lipstick -American Beauty - Luxury For Lips-Tickled Pink

I am a FFF w/blonde hair and blue eyes and this color is so easy to wear! Never have to worry about it looking garish or overdone. Just a nice and simple pink to help you look alive! I am worried though because this color does not show up on the Kohl's website so it is probably d/c'd. What else is new the story of my life??!! LOL Run out and try it if you are a fair gal!!

Like Lexx13 below I really like this product! The color is almost a perfect match to my lips, so I love doing a smokey eye with this! This is a color I can put on and not worry about, it will go with anything! I like the feel of it, balmy, but almost a lipgloss shine! I use a liner with it since it's a MLBB color just to add definition. I just with the package was a little better, so I will take off one lippie for that! I got this at Rite Aid for a BOGOF so well worth it!
This is a must have for my FFF friends! It's a sheer mauvey/pink, but looks spectacular over lipstick and even on its own! I was so surprised by this since I have never tried the glazewear lipglosses before, I dare to say this could even become HG status. It has a nice consistency-not too thin and not too sticky- and I love the cakey smell! For a few $$$ how couldn't you give it a try!
What else can I say about this lipstick! On my NW20 skin it looks great! Perfect mauve/pink/nude. MLBB, for sure! It feels great going on, and looks great with any sheer pink or nude lipgloss over it! I am just taking one lippie off for staying power, but with this case I don't mind reapplying! EDIT: I found this color just didn't complement my coloring well and swapped it away!
Mascara -Maybelline - Lash Stylist Waterproof ] [DISCONTINUED]

I was pleasantly surprised by this mascara! I received this in a swap, and WOW! I have never been able to have my lashes hold a curl, but this one actually works! I thought I wouldn't like the comb, but alas I really do! I wiggle in a zigzag pattern when I apply, and I have no problems with clumping! I am just so amazed that my lashes are finally going up instead of straight out! If you have blonde lashes give it a try (after using the eyelash curler), I thought nothing would ever work on me!
I love this lipliner. The color is is a near perfect match to my lips. No orange tones to this one, just what I am always after. Pinky/Brown color. Pale enough to wear when just using a lipgloss. I can't believe I didn't find this one before. So glad I did!
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - 25% shea butter ultra rich body cream

I picked up the smaller tub at TJ Maxx last weekend as I was dying to try this! So far, so good. I like the way my skin feels after using this, really smooth and soft. I like the fragrance, although I can't really describe it. Soft enough not to be bothersome. I like putting it on my hands before I go to bed because they feel great in the morning when I wake up. I agree this is a little costly, but if I can keep finding a tub at the price I paid for this one I will continue to buy.
Eyeliner -New York Color - Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil - all
beechezz 12/20/2007 6:08:00 PM
I have this in Mink and its in my daily rotation of eye liners. This is a taupey brown color and looks great w/my blonde hair and blue eyes. It is darker than my other e/l pencils, but I use it when I am going for the smoky eye look. I don't really care for the type of pencil that has to be sharpened, but for the price who can complain. Lasts all day at work too!
Treatments (Eye) -Clarins - Extra-Firming Eye Contour Serum
beechezz 12/20/2007 6:03:00 PM
I like this serum, and only use it in the morning. It seems to plump up my lines a little and makes my concealer go on really smooth. I don't know if I am seeing any long term benefits, but it definitely gives me the confidence I need the mornings to face another day at work. This is in my rotation of eye creams as I am always on the search for a better product.
Treatments (Eye) -Shiseido - Bioperformance Super Eye Contour
beechezz 12/20/2007 6:00:00 PM
I found that my lines looked less pronounced when I used this, and this was obvious when I ran out and had to use something else I had (which did absolutely nothing). Definitely a little pricy, but you get what you pay for in the end. I haven't found anything as good as this, but I am always willing to try. This is my eye cream for now.
Lipstick -Flirt - Chickstick Smooth & Shiny Lipcolor in Peekaboo
beechezz 12/20/2007 5:44:00 PM
I love this color. I am blonde/blue eyed and this looks great. It's a light corally pinkish color with a tiny but of shimmer. Just a nice wash of color for everyday use. The formula is nice and light, not too heavy. You can also wear this with a gloss over it for extra shine. I like Flirt lip products and would definitely recommend them. Did I say I picked this up for 7 dollars since I had a 30 percent off coupon? Can't beat that IMO.
If you like Vanilla type fragrances you will be happy with this one. I am a fan of pretty much anything mixed with Vanilla and this one is no exception. A unique Vanilla fragrance and so convenient for travel. Love having this in my purse. Always get compliments that is smells very yummy!
this is the perfect MLBB shade on me. Its a pinky nude and it has a similar feeling to MAC lipglasses. That being said it definitely has some lasting power due to it stickiness. I would love to repurchase, but Walgreens has d/c this line and I don't know where else to find it.
I purchased this in the "nude" shade and I am very happy with it. It's very creamy and the color is a nudey-mauvey-pink. It gives me nice definition (a little darker than my natural color) and doesn't need to be sharpened too much so that is a plus. I would love to repurchase, but Walgreen's has d/c this line so i don't know where I would find it!
