Eye Makeup Remover -Neutrogena - Oil Free eye makeup remover
fashionmerchandisingmajor 8/20/2011 10:50:00 PM
I love this product. I use to use Lancome's Bi-Facil eye makeup remover but I started to think I was a little crazy to be paying so much for a remover. After I researched Neutrogena's eye make up remover and found out both products were similar I decided to give it a try. Honestly, I feel like Neutrogena's eye makeup remover is more effective. I don't have to do any tugging to get off waterproof products like I did with Lancome's. Side note: I have very sensitive eyes and this had no stinging effect on my eyes, but I was also careful not to get it the products into my eyes.
Treatments (Eye) -Avon - Solutions plus Total Radiance Eye Gel

I love this product. I have very sensitive eyes and this is the only eye treatment that I have found that doesn't irritate my eyes. It has helped to brighten my grey circles caused from having respiratory problems and has helped with dehydration lines around my eyes. Since it is a gel I do keep it in the refrigerator and it is very cooling. I have noticed that if I use too much product it does ball up a little but that doesn't discourage me from this product... I LOVE IT!
So I have decided to take a minimalist approach to my make-up routine these days. This has become a staple to my routine. I put this on and some powder over it and it keeps me matte all day long which is a BIG deal for me because I have very oily skin. It even keeps me matte in the hot, humid climate of the south. It's also pretty cool that it has an spf in it too, but it's oil free which is a mega PLUS! The only thing I wish was different is the packaging, it really needs to be in a pump bottle and not a squeeze tube.
I love this eyeliner especially the black plum. It looks light but when you put it on your eyes they just brighten up. (I have hazel eyes). They are creamy, easy to apply and do not budge. The color payoff is amazing and I will for sure try some other colors in the future.
I use the entire Pure Focus line and have had a miracle and dramatic change in my skin from using it. This toner for sure helps with controlling the oil on my face and I can actually wear my mu all day with out looking like an oil slick after a couple of hours. It contains SA which has helped control my acne prone skin. I highly recommend this line to anyone with super oily skin like myself. It has done wonders for me.
Cleansers -Lancome - Pure Focus Deep Purifying Cleansing Gel

This is my HG cleanser. It really helps control the oil on my face and helped clear up skin bc it does contain SA. Leaves my face feeling clean, I highly recommend this to anyone who is very oily and acne prone like myself.
Okay, first off I have long thick lashes already and I got this mascara so it would hold the curl of my lashes and it does a very good job in doing so. However, I do have have put on like 6 layers of this mascara to give a more dramatic look. I am trying all of the different Lancome mascaras because I know they are #1 in the world for mascara but so far Definicils is my absolute favorite.
Moisturizers -Lancome - Bienfait Multi-Vital SPF 30

Like another review said before mine... OILY skin BEWARE!!!! I have oily skin and I have been trying out different daily moisturizers to find that HG, however this moisturizer made my face an oil slick by the end of the day. I don't mind my face being a little oily through out the day but this stuff made my EL DW separate and rub off. I have resorted to using it only at night, but I'm still on the search for a good daily moisturizer.
I wanted to try MAC's Lady Gaga lipstick but had someone convince me that this was better and I must say I love this lipstick. However the packaging sucks and the tube broke the first time I used it but I'm not complaining bc I got it for 75% off from CVS and found out that Rimmel is repackaging their lipsticks. So I'll for sure repurchase.
Eyes -Lancome - Aquatique Waterproof EyeColour Base
fashionmerchandisingmajor 1/3/2011 10:55:00 PM
OKAY! The only reason why I will re-purchase this stuff is it is the only primer that I have found that will keep mineral eyeshadows on without creasing. I only have 3 mineral eyeshadows and once they are gone I am never re-purchasing them again which will end the aquatique reign. I did try this product under my regular shadows and quite honestly it sucked. I have very oily skin and found that my eyeshadow faded and creased in the same amount of time as though I had applied nothing to my lids. Other than that I will stick with my TFSI.
I never thought that I would love a fragrance with a grapefruit scent but I do like this. However, I am not in love with this scent because it does leave a musty after odor, but that is probably it not working well with my skin's chemistry.
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - jessica simpson FANCY LOVE 2009

Despite me absolutely HATING Jessica Simpson I had a fragrance sales rep that turned me on to this fragrance. I like oriental fragrances and this is that floral fruitiness that I love so much. I am on the fence if I will re-purchase this fragrance for the simple fact that it fades quickly, I also hate that the bottle is opaque it looks cheap.
Lipstick -Lancome - Le Rouge Absolu - Creme de Marron

Don't let this color fool you by just looking at it. It sure did fool me, because I thought I would never wear this color but I tried it on anyway and LOVE IT! It is more of a brick color with not a lot of red orange but it gives a more finished look with more of a brown undertone. It is very moisturizing with moderate lasting ability.
Lipstick -Clinique - Long Last Lipstick - Twilight Nude
fashionmerchandisingmajor 12/29/2010 12:27:00 AM
Overall just a great nude lipstick while adding that pop of color to enhance your face. I have a couple of lipsticks that are my HG's and this is for sure one of them.It is a very nice berry color.
I love this mascara.... What I love most about it is it defines each lash, making them look long and full. There is no fall out, which is an immediate win-over for me... However it is a very wet mascara and does require time for drying. But overall I would re-purchase this mascara.
