Mascara -Shiseido - The Makeup Mascara Base [DISCONTINUED]
creole 1/11/2009 4:39:00 PM
This made my lashes stick together. It looked tacky and spider legdy and thus making me look BAD. For a product soo expensive, how did it make my lashes look sooo "cheap"? Will me sending it back =(.
I hate any staple that is expensive. I only make a pricey item a staple item when it is the BEST. This is one of those items. It is like Sofina Lucent sunblock….humm, o.k. not that good..but up there. This is like a miniature pencil that will give you hair like pencil strokes. NO pulling, not too hard, easy glide…just perfect. I like that it’s not an auto-sharp pencil.. those always seem to break on me. This comes with a super small sharpener to keep it ready for action. IMO, this is far better than the bi-brow powder pomade. Warning …the Black is BLACK! It was too harsh for my dark skin. Even I ended up having to use the Brunette color……maybe the Black would make a good eyeliner. BTW..it's apx $20 usa
Eye Shadow -MAC - Cult of Cherry Spiced Chocolate Quad [DISCONTINUED]

OMG!!! I LUV this Quad!!! It is the first one EVER that I can use every color on my eyes at once. It is sooo amazing. I have been a MAC CRACK addict for years and this is the very first quad I can use all of the colors in. I am sooo happy! FINALLY, a quad from MAC that GGG/DDD girls can use all of the colors in and not feel Jipped! The Nanogold is the brow framer, Spiced chocolate is the crease, Sweet Chestnut is the lid, and Brash is the brow bown. I just LUV it soo much. On the down side…why does it come in such that FUGLY packaging? For $36 plus much tax….it should be in a covered from sun fading apparatus. For what ever reason, MAC makes great product but FUGLY packaging….oh,well…me still buy much MAC…long time. Go get this quad. It will sell out. It already has in Las Vegas.....your town is next =P
Lipstick -MAC - Mattene in Kirsch (Cult of Cherry)

Rundown-- For the DDD/GGG it's a-Nice scarlet, on the red/pinky side. I HATE the tube. I HATE that it only holds a tad of product. I HATE that the tube always malfunctions and makes application difficult. BUT.......for the DDD/GGG, like myself......... This collection has restored my faith in MAC. I swear!!!! For the longest time I stayed away form most of the current collections. They all just looked WAY too day glow on my nighttime skin tone. ( aka: too light for GGG/DDD girls). Yesterday, I tried the Mattene Cult of Cherry in Chock-ful and Kirsch and I almost fell over in SUPRIZZEEE!!! It actually looked good on me without help from my HG chestnut lip liner! I immediately, put back the other crap I was looking at and got both of these. I will get extras every week because this is LE…..LE!, oh, yeah,, that’s the reason I will leave MAC again….but,….after this collection.
Rundown----Dark Brown with gold micro glitter. I hate that it's in a tube, not much product and the tube direction always malfunctions. BUT........the color......Finally.......

First let me write : I have both small and large pores. Sooo, I got the Sebum mask. I applied it and it did not go in to my pores no matter how thick I spread it. Then the places where it did go in the pores, it made me sweaty , so it never dried. The places it did dry, it did so by somehow spreading OVER the the pore( like it skipped over it when it dried.) End result…the mask came off w/o ANY sebum attached. This is a HUGE waste of Money. Will go back to the store for my money back.
This has become my new daily HG red lipstick. I ware it daily. I love it. It is not too bright, doesn’t need a lip liner to make the color “work”…it’s just perfect for me and my GGG/DDD self!!!
I sooo LUV my new HG sun block. Plus, this is currently my towns (some say city) social season. I have been to at least 1 event each weekend and have had no Sun damage. I’ve been using my precious Sofina Lucent for a couple of months now. I use it everyday over my moisturizer….currently Dr.Wexler’s (not HG moisturizer ..it‘s just the current try out. It has actually BLOCKED the sun on me. I have not tanned or been burnt by the sun at all. Then to top it all off….It does not leave me with a WHITE CAST on my Beautiful Dark skin =). My HG…I just wish I didn’t have to send away for it to Hong Kong no less. But, Hey….HG and daily used…I must do what I must. Next time I will order it in bulk from BoboDave.com

Theses are my current new thing. They are nice and creamy and easy to use. I really like the convenience. I will buy again.
Skincare - Body -Juvena - Juvedical Renewing Hand & Nail Cream
creole 1/20/2008 1:14:00 AM
O.K.. this product is WAY over priced, but I thought that my hands were worth it. My hands are still worth it, but this product is NOT!!! First, it does not give moisture that lasts after ONE hand washing. Second, it makes my hands look greasy at first, then it makes my hands look DRY! Third….it smells like sunscreen form the 80’s! When I had to pull come wind blown hair out of my mouth, I could taste it…it tasted like…SUNSCREEN from the 80’s….YUCK! I went back and returned it for my FULL refund. My hunt continues for a hand cream that has SPF.
Sunscreen -Laneige - SPF 50 PA+++ Sun Block Active Star

I LOVE this stuff. I like the greasy feel because I have dry skin. This is also great because it does not leave a white cast on my dark skin. Plus, it is great as a mu primer. Would re-purchase if I could fine it in America.
Sunscreen -Shiseido - Ultimate Sun Protection Cream SPF 55 PA+++ [DISCONTINUED]

Yes this is a great sun screen….if you have light skin (PPP)! If you are a dark or golden skin woman(DDD/GGG)…this will make you look like you have a white cast to you face. “Ahsy Girl, ASHAAY!” I will not repurchase. I prefer the one by Laneige, but that is soo hard to come by. So, my search for the perfect sun screen…continues.
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Visibly Even Moisturizer SPF 15

This didn't brighten my skin nor quickly get rid of dark spots. For that Black Opal gel is still tops. But I digress....Anyway, it had a nice smell that I kinda liked after 2 months of usage. Buy again, umm...no. It’s just not enough bang for my buck. Also, I think the spf should be a lot higher.

WTF? I got DARKER using this!!!! I used this faithfully for a couple of weeks. Then I noticed it did not work as a sun block even with my sun visor on. Sun screen, yeah I didn’t get burnt. Sun block NO. A waste of my money.
