MLBB, great formula can easily be worn sheer or opaque. Not chalky or dirty looking. When it starts to wear off I add a little lip balm to even it out if I'm not near a mirror.
Styling Products -KMS California - Add Volume blow dry lotion
blacklikemyheart 9/23/2012 12:39:00 PM
This shet is good. I had been using the Oribe volumizing spray at my roots, with really very tepid results. I was supplementing with Got2Be Powderful at the roots after I was finished styling (although dry shampoo tends to leave my hair feeling dry). With the KMS I don't need to use the dry shampoo to give my lift at the roots. The KMS does it all beautifully and leaves me softness at the ends and my long layered cut. Fan. A big fan. (Although the first night, after finishing a perfect blow dry, we went to an outdoor party in humid Venice. The sea air ruined my blow out in < 30 minutes and I looked like Medusa the rest of the night. Gah,)
Excellent packaging and quality product. I use the light version to sculpt under my cheekbones & along my jawline. I am amazed at how useful this inexpensive little bronzer is.
An HG bronzer for all over glow, hint of a pink undertone instead of orange. A touch of shimmer which makes it nice for cheekbones & temples. I get annoyed by the packaging because the brush is lame & the compact is HUGE. But I use this all year around in CA.
An excellent natural non-sheer but not too opaque light pink. Love the wide brush. It can apply a touch streaky on the first coat, I tend to use 2-3 coats, then a quick dry top coat for gloss.
Love the color (sheer and wearable despite its appearance in the tube), the texture (non sticky but a definable gloss), the packaging (sleek and not cheap looking), and the price point. I plan to never be out of this color.
Self Tanners -L'Oreal - Sublime Bronze Self Tanning Towelettes in Medium
blacklikemyheart 9/21/2012 9:07:00 AM
Bought these for the convenience during travel but the outcome is subpar. Very light weight & I got dressed quickly afterward without worrying about drying time. However the color outcome was meh in terms of darkness & streaky. Had to use Sublime Glow (my HG go to) to even out my legs the next morning. Won't rebuy despite the convenience.
Just bought a bottle of this on the fly after a day at the beach and before dinner to freshen up in the car. Great texture, not too dry (like Colorstay sometimes is) and not too oily (like FitMe). Long lasting, light feeling on the skin with medium to full coverage. I am normal/dry with rare break outs (1 pimple a month). Love the pump bottle, simply wish it had sunscreen.
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Boyfriend - Boyfriend Pulse Point Oil

Warm, musky and just a little bit dirty this reminds me of a sexy man's fisherman's sweater. The pulse oil is a permanent part of my travel kit for those times I want to be a tad bit sultry but approachable. This is a CFM scent in a grown up way, kind of the polar opposite of a little girl's Pink Sugar seduction...this is all woman.
Provides me fine slightly wavy hair a more even curl if used when slightly damp and scrunched. Does tend to make my hair feel quite dry but adds a pleasant thickness. Matte finish. Scent is lovely, light and coconutty.
Love love love. This is THE PERFECT MAC Barbie lippie replacement I have been looking for over the last 7 or 8 years. I am not a huge fan of the pencil applicator, but the texture is so amazing (slightly moist but no quite glossy) and the wear is lovely (wears quite awhile and rubs off evenly with no stain or outline) that I can live with the packaging. I would even consider going back to this formula for something more neutral for work.
Self Tanning Milk is really a misnomer, IMO. Milk to me implies a more fluid texture and this is seriously creamy and rich. It hydrates nicely and the scent is not offensive. But it is not as easy to blend as I might like given that it is SO THICK. However, I like the fact it has a little spf, perfect to use on your legs before a day of watching sports outside in shorts or a skirt. I probably would not repurchase because I like the L'Oreal Sublime bronze line better in terms of texture, and for me self tanners are all about texture. EDIT: the packaging for this sucks. the plastic is very stiff, and fully a third was left when I could literally NOT squeeze any more out the end. I had to use kitchen sheers to cut off the end and dig into ALL THAT PRODUCT with my fingers. I imagine the rest of the product (one to two more applications) will get ruined by exposure. *annoyed*
HG status. I am a pale/medium complected with a fair amount of redness and a pink birthmark between my brows. I apply this with my fingers to face, neck and chest. It is easy to apply evenly due to the watery texture and creates a nice bronzey glow, it's more of a gradual self tanner, no super brown pop but i can definitely see the difference. I ise 2-3x a week in the summer. Perfection.
This is an initial review from only purchase and first application: My jar was full, unlike other reports. And I found the product pleasant to handle with a nice whipped consistency, rather than creamy. Not as whipped as other "mousse" foundations, but definitely whipped and not a cream. This applied very smoothly, and with a light easy consistency. I found with Colorstay regular I needed a brush to really blend the corners and around my nose. This blended quite easily with clean fingers. Medium coverage, buildable. Although the packaging is criticized for being too heaby for travel, I think it's fine. It's not ten pounds FFS, and the plastic liner makes product mess pretty fool proof.
I spied this on the Revlon unit when I had some time to kill in Orange County. I hadn't seen shades this bright in my own CVS, probably because it is a high frequency HG shade and usually sold out. INtrigued, I p'ville'd it, and low and behold, very high rating. I thought it would have a little less pigment on the lips and I'll be honest, there is a fair amount of pop here. It climbs right to the edge of "too much" for me, but doesn't teeter over. I have been wearing it everyday, and it gives my face a glorious springtime pop of color. I will wear this at night with a little liner for some staying power. Staying power without if for me 2-3 hours. Definitely something I will repurchase.
