In my humble opinion this is the best loose powder out there! It matches perfectly every skin tone, with just one tone invisible matte! Provides a smooth, natural makeup finish! I wear it over my TM, concealer or moisturizer; just to provide a natural touch of color! It comes in a clear jar with a white plastic lid, applicator and brand name printed in gold, with 1.0 Oz of product that will last foreverrrrr. Does not look cheap though. The most important thing is that does not break me up or irritated my skin! This type of products is better to use with a professional powder brush for a perfect application! ;)
First of all i'm not concerned about wrinkles at all! I'm a young girl, but it's never to late, for prevention! I read the glorious reviews this product is getting here, and i say to me why don't give it a try? So i bought it on sale and starting using it and wow OMG it feels like nothing upon application, incredible matte feeling for hours, luminosity and a velvety smooth finish! It really improves my skin texture, and the most important does not leave a greasy feeling!!!! Being a serum for people over 35 years, in my humble opinion it's safe to use for every range of age. This is the perfect dreamed makeup PRIMER! My makeup goes on smooth with a perfect finish! Maybe you get fulled by the serum name on it but it's lightly enough to hydrate really good my skin. About the packaging it's a little over the top design but futuristic as well! ;) will see how it works during time, love it comes in a pump bottle, very hygienic. So, i'll stock up when it comes on sale again, ladies give it a Try, no regrets guarantee haha. (Can be used am/pm. During a.m. it's very important the use of sunscreen in conjuction, cuz the glycolic acid leaves skin very sensitive to sunlight)

OMG! the best oil control hydrator ever. finally my search ends here, after trying so many products to keep at bay my oily skin, this one is the winner. i bought it 20 days ago at my local macys clinique counter and it really works!!!! leaving my skin smooth and matte instantly and during at least 5 hours and i touch up with my pressed powder or a blotting tissue and my skin keeps going matte for another 5 hours. it's non acnegenic, very light and safe to use, it does not moisturize enough my skin but i use a toner before this lotion and after a gel-cream lotion oil free sunscreen and i'm done. it works very good with my sunscreen, and is a best option for a makeup primer.!!!! my brother horrible oily skin love it too! (he was very skeptical after using clarins men shine free gel, lorealmen pur mat, etc, etc..... and he tryed this one and he say finally the product that a i was looking for!) girls and boys give it a try to this clinique new product, it's a winner 5 stars. you'll really notice a huge improvement in your oily skin, trust me. ;)
LIGHT, CLEAN, FRESH and SEXY! I love this fragrance, my bro bought it recently and smells just simply divine, not the typical woody/spicy mens cologne, this one is something more fun and fresh!!! Perfect for anytime, anyday for the confident man in your life ;)

crysna 9/4/2012 5:15:00 PM
First of all, it's one of the best pressed powders out there! I'm a loyal lancome lover, but i decided to change my powder to this one. I use porcelain beige and is perfect for me, it feels like nothing upon application, silky and natural finish. The only thing i use for makeup, i didn't even tried with the wet sponge, only dry cuz i love a natural look! It's talc free even of common harsh chemicals used in makeup , great for my oily skin! Long lasting that doesn't need many touch ups, just 1 or 2. So give it a try, it's a little bit expensive but worth it! ;)
So clean so fresh so feminine! A fruity floral fragrance perfect for daytime wear! Nice sillage and inexpensive, everybody love this frag while I'm wearing it! But I love so much more the new version latin attitude amour!
Shampoo -Nuskin - Epoch Ava Puhi Moni Shampoo & Light Conditioner
crysna 3/28/2012 4:35:00 PM
Last month I came back using this shampoo and light conditioner! I have used several times in the past and worked pretty good for me, it softly cleanse my fine and straight hair leaving it soft to the touch, healthy looking and with a lovely fruit fragrance!!! I Paired up with the hair conditioner of the same line, and I love it cuz my hair looks so healthy and natural. For those who only used the shampoo and need extra moist add the conditioner! Love it cuz have it a lot of natural ingredients and free of harsh chemicals! The ava puhi moni is a fruit of the polinesian, nu skin uses the juice of the fruit as a key ingredient on this Epoch line, my brother also uses the ava puhi moni anti dandruff shampoo and he loves it how nice works on his scalp issue and leaving a soft natural hair! ;)
I almost cry last week when I was shopping and I found this jewel! It was one of my grandmas favorite fragrance, I remember when she put some of this frag over me! I ended buying a gift set for me, and it's definitely a FLORIENTAL fragrance, romantic, feminine and timeless; with sweet undertones. It's loud and a little goes a long way! Lovely package will buy it again and again! Love u Grandma wish u were here ;)
I got this from my avon lady for $10 bucks! It's discontinued and is a nice green light floral! For the lovers of floral fragrances this is perfect! It doesn't really change from the top to the base notes, but it morphs into a clasy lovely floral, very close to the skin, soft and feminine! A shame that has been discontinued, that happens with avon's best products! My only regret is the sticker on the bottle, tought that the design was printed! It could be easy for a young or mature woman to wear it! It last around 5 hours on my skin Will buy it again maybe it's available on ebay ;)
Fragrance -Giorgio Armani - Acqua Di Gio (for men)
crysna 1/4/2012 12:35:00 PM
This is a fresh/aromatic/woody fragrance; in my opinion one of the best mens fragrance of all time! It smells richly freshly divine, manly! So appealing, not boring just something perfect without being complicated. My brother loves this one; and we don't care about the "popular category" or a mass market guys fragrance that had become over the years; the fact is that is a well done mens fragrance, with excelent longevity, and good quality! U never go wrong with this, I know when my bro smell good and I love it. I bought a bottle for my bf who love it too!!! If you want a well done fragrance for your man go for this and 212 sexymen, chanel platinum egoiste, givenchy pi and pi neo (my brothers top 5 fragrance) a nice gift for the man in your life!
Poeme by lancôme, bring good memories to me everytime I wear it! I remember smells this on teacher at middle school, she always wore it and everytime she entered at the classroom I can perceive it like saying "I'm here everybody" screaming the beauty of her presence!!! Mom wore it too, and since that time I'm in love with this, I was completely happy first time I bought it, I feel this fragrance suits me like it says I'm yours, a lovely feeling that u know when a fragrance match with you! Well after that this sweet/floral and a cozy warm vanilla fragrance is on my cabinet and will be there always, itks something that exudes class, a lovely lady, who's in love!!! The bottle is gourgeous, longevity is awesome. a well done fragrance by lancome.
I found this after buying Giorgio (this one come paired in a giorgio fragrance set) I never heard of it before, so I sprayed this over my arm and starts out with a watery guava note, then became a little more flowery; something fruity/whitefloral with some woody notes. It's a pleasant summer beachy frag, not unique but something wearable! Nice longevity for an EDT, the box is eyecatching in bright silver and blue color with giorgio name printed in silver, the bottle is pretty the same as giorgio but in light blue with a gold sun chain on the top! It says it's made in france. Try it!
This product works a little bit, it's safe to use cuz does not make me peel, irritate or bad reaction on my skin. It contents 2% salicylic acid as acne medication (same % in clinique's acne solutions spot clearing gel) more natural ingredients (plant extracts) that calm down the redness making it soft upon application. With this products you need to keep reapplying over the day at least 3 times to see an improvement. My skin is almost clear but sometimes there's a stupid pimple who comes out and broke my day, but this is great, helping to get rid of those bad pimples! ;)
This is a true Classic! My mom loves this type of fragrances strong, chypre/floral and WOMANLY! She's only 46 years old! Being this a classic is quite popular too, I smelled on some womens even on a cousin (with my same age) years ago and smelled richly divine, so now that I'm on a classic fragrance mood, finally go for this and bought it for me the 15ml EDT spray bottle to see how it will work with my body chemistry! 3 months later and the fragrance worked pretty good (with 3 spritz only everytime I use it) and developed so good, it's strong! Yes, it exudes timeless classy, yes; it's womanly? Totally!!!! So it's a really turnheads fragrance, the dry down it's my favorite part when the fragrance really come out! Use it properly, you maybe get bored of it; like I said before not every single fragrance in the whole world will suit you the best like other's, that's why exist a complete range of olfatory fragrance family. The fragrance need to be tested and let it do his work on your skin (15-30minutes at least) to see how it will work for you! Having say that, this is what it's, a true fragrance classic!

Eye Shadow -Bourjois - Eyeshadow Shimmers in Turquoise
crysna 12/29/2011 11:48:00 AM
I bought this eyeshadow on my trip to paris! It's pretty good, smooth on nicely, shimmering effect, average longevity, mix well with my other eyeshadows. The package is a little mess cuz the applicator is placed over the eyeshadow(doesn't come separately) the jar is so pretty and tiny!!! The color range are pretty good I also bought it in dreamy pink shade. I use it with a proeyeshadow brush from mac, (don't like the mini applicator in any product), will buy it again, Good product.
