Excellent brow filler for gray brow hair. I use the dark blonde color. The pencil is very soft and one issue is that you can't sharpen it easily when the pencil get shorter so there is some waste. Good product though.

This is the only self tanner I will use on my face. The color on me is a golden tan, not orangey.
Treatments -Paula's Choice - RESIST Daily Smoothing Treatment with 5% AHA

This is a great product. I have been using it for about a month and find that it has definitely started to soften the wrinkles around my eyes and mouth. Will definitely buy again.
BioInfusion Olive Oil Moisturizing Hair Lotion is fantastic! It does for my hair what Carol's Daughter Hair Milk does without the nasty pledge smell. I have dry, curly/wavy hair and I use this on dry hair to define, moisturize and give shine. I love it. I have only found it at Walgreen's in the ethnic hair care section. I use all of the BioInfusion Olive Oil products: shampoo ( no laurel sulfate, low suds) Leave in conditioner, olive oil serum. All good! I always make sure I stock up when I go into a Walgreens.

A very good concealer, price is right and it works well under the eyes. I have it in ivory, the lightest shade but I use a darker shade in spring/summer.
Powder -Unlisted Brand - TRUE Cosmetics Mineral Foundation Powder
gottatryit 12/3/2009 11:17:00 AM
The True Mineral Foundation Pressed Powder is fabulous! The coverage is superb...no need for concealers. Great coverage that is very natural looking. It seems to melt into the skin. It reminds me of the Clientele pressed mineral foundation powder but with many more shades from which to choose. I have not used the loose minerals in this brand. I have combo skin and there is no shine break through in my Tzone...lasts all day. I apply it w/ my philosophy supernatural brush. You can also order small samples of the various shades, they have LOTS of shades, for not much money. The webpage is www.truelynatural.com. The small sample sizes are great for travel and in the handbag. I use the fair#3 shade and I am typically "fairly light" in BE minerals. The only drawback is the price. $42 per compact. Excellent product!

I really like this foundation for the summer. I used the light/medium/medium since I am self tanning during the summer. I am a BE Fairly light shade typically). I use my philosophy concealer brush to apply and love the full coverage and the SPF 20. Great staying power and no T-zone break through. Both my sisters asked me what foundation I was wearing when we spent the day together recently and each brought themselves a tube. I took off 1 lippie for the meager shade selection.
Self Tanners -Aveeno - Continuous Radiance for All Skin Tones

I have fair skin but I buy the Aveeno product for medium skin and it works great for me. It is the best of the "subtle" glow lotions. Minimal smell, long lasting believable color, dries fairly quickly. Good stuff!

I purschasd this from QVC and then found it at ULTA fior the same price. Anyway, I do think this serum has made a difference in the appearance of my fine lines and wrinkles. I used it for a month and I did re-purchase....and probably will again. Since I am always looking for new products I am now trying the M.Asam line from HSN.

I really like the Mineral Marble Powder in Bronze. I use it in the summer everyday over my Pur 4 in 1 Light foundation. This combo gives me a very natural, warm finish to my skin. Lasts all day.
Lip Treatments -Neutrogena - Moistureshine Tinted Lip Balm [DISCONTINUED]
gottatryit 6/9/2008 11:28:00 AM
This lipbalm is excellent, spf 20, very creamy and soft on the lips and nice shade offerings. I like #10 Glow, a warm natural shade.
Just a heads up on this product...there is now a "fair" shade of the Balance and Brighten compact for those of us who found the original shade too dark. I just purchased the fair shade at Sephora. I haven't tried it yet but wanted to pass the word.
