Brows -Anastasia Of Beverly Hills - Eye Lights Shimmer in Sand Shimmer
janehathaway 8/14/2011 11:46:00 PM
I have been using this since she first came out with her line of products about 12 years ago. It is absolutely perfect. Just the most beautiful color of light pink with the perfect amount of shimmer. It highlights a great brow and brightens your face, but it's very subtle. I love this stuff. On another note, I do not love her brow pencils. I use the ones by Damone Roberts (he's been doing my brows for 14 years). They aren't listed on here to review, but they are much better. His brow highlighters are awful though.
After about 15 years of searching, I have finally found my perfect neutral nail polish! I'm on my second bottle of this and finally got around to reviewing it. The color is perfect - just ever-so-slightly pinker than my natual nail color. It goes on like a dream with no streaks whatsoever. I love Essie polishes and this and Fishnet Stockings (always on my toes) are my two favorites.
Tinted Moisturizer -Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 - Oil Free

I am really liking this product. I wore LM oil-free regular foundation in Warm Ivory from when it came out until about six weeks ago. I loved it, but was starting to feel like I needed to lighten up on the foundation a bit as I'm getting a bit older. The oil-free tinted moisturizer is nearly perfect. It makes my skin look flawless in a few seconds flat. I put on my Tarte blush right after I finish applying the tinted moisturizer. Then I set it all with a little bit of LM loose translucent powder. It lasts ALL day - even after a fairly intense workout. The only negative is that the color range isn't quite broad enough. I'm wearing Nude, but it is slightly too dark. Porcelain is way too light. I tried mixing the two, but it changed the consistency (I know that sounds strange, but it doesn't go on as nicely when I mix them together). All in all, I love it.
I wear this polish most of the time and have for years. It's almost always on my toes and sometimes on my fingers. It's the most perfect shade of red. It goes on smoothly and lasts for 5-7 days. I love it. I use only Essie and Lippmann collection polishes and this is the best from either of those brands.
I'm so torn on this mascara. I've used it for probably 25 years, but only because I can't find anything that works better for me - not because I love it. It does not smudge or flake, which is why I continue to buy it. At least not when it's new. I think they changed the formula somewhere along the line (maybe about 8 years ago) and it dries out much more quickly than it used to. Once that happens, it does flake. It's a bit heavy and weighs my lashes down making the curl come out. The brush is pretty good. The color is nice. Overall, it's a good mascara and I'll probably continue to use it.
I love this lipstick. I bought it to replace NARS Hindu, which I wore for several years. I used to wear a classic red lip every single day. Never left home without it. My husband wasn't a huge fan of it so I stopped wearing it. This is a wonderful compromise. The look of red lipstick, but it's much easier to apply (no liner needed). It has a touch of a shimmer and is just a bit of a softer look than a strong, classic red lip, but it still gives a great classic look. I can see going through many tubes of this!
I love this lipstick. The color is gorgeous (classic vampy) and it lasts FOREVER. It is a bit drying though so I deducted one star. Not the fault of the product, but the aging process - it feathers a bit on my 44 year old lips after a few hours. Love it though. Edited: I removed one lippie as I just never wear this lipstick. It's TOO matte for my 45 year old skin. The color is nice, but it feathers horribly no matter what I do. Probably not the fault of the product, but of my aging skin though!
Eye Shadow -Chanel - Ombre D'Eau Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow - #60 - Sand

LOVE this product. It is the most beautiful color, easy to apply and stays on ALL day. It's almost the exact same color as NARS Corfu shadow. I love Corfu, but it doesn't stay put. This one is a dream. I could see wearing this daily for a long time. Update: I am purchasing my 3rd bottle of this today. I love it so much. It's easily the best eyeshadow I have ever used. I love the way it goes on, the way it dries and the way it looks. It lasts ALL day and it looks beautiful. You will not regret trying this product. It's probably one of the best beauty products on the market.
I love the color of this shadow! It's almost perfect. That being said, it does not stay on well at all and it creases horribly. I love the color so much that I'm on my third package of it. I have started wearing it with a bit of Trish McEvoy Caffe Latte powder shadow over it. That makes the most beautiful color and it helps it stay on a little better.
I love the color of this lipstick. I've been using it everyday for about two years. It took a few tubes of it before I perfected the application of it. The shimmery flecks were giving me problems for awhile, but I loved the color so I was determined to work it out. Now I've somehow gotten to the point where it goes on smoothly everyday.
Treatments -MD Skincare by Dr. Dennis Gross - Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel

I love this product! My skin had always been beautiful and started getting really problematic when I turned 40. It was suddenly a horrible combination of dry and flakey and with big, hard zits that would last for weeks. I have been using the Alpha-Beta pads about twice a week for a month and my skin looks amazing again. My husband even commented on how beautiful and young my skin looked last night. They are expensive, but totally worth it for me. I think you are supposed to use them daily, but I only use them twice a week to save on the cost. Will continue to buy them as long as my skin keeps looking this good.
I've been using this soap for over 20 years and I absolutely love it. I've gotten bored and switched to something else a few times over the years, but have always come right back to Laszlo. I frequently get compliments on my skin and people often think I am 10-12 years younger than I am. I don't know if it's genetics or the soap, but I'll keep using it! The Sea Mud Soap is the only product I use from this line and the rest of my skin care comes from my dermatologist. As for the wasted soap due to the packaging, I simply rest the bottom (black part) on the lid and then lay the soap across it at a 90 degree angle until it dries (so the entire bar is just touching the edges of the container. Very little soap is wasted this way. I also just apply it to my face and then rinse in the shower (none of the splashing in the sink).
