Love this color. My new favorite BE glimmer. Makes a lovely wash with just black eyeliner. It's a beautiful golden taupe type color that compliments my auburn hair perfectly. Highly recommended! (if you can find it!)
I love this!! It's so gorgeous! I have the regular golden and it's just not as pretty. This refined one is well, refined! More finely milled, just a little bit of a glow, goes on so pretty. Highly Recommended! I bought 2 because it's limited edition.
You too can look like an enraged cockatoo!! I tried this stuff, the whole line actually. When it first came out I grabbed the big kit with everything. Anyway. My long hair which is down to my butt ended up looking like something out of fright night. It was clumpy matted nastiness. The texture was crap. The smell was crap. CRAP CRAP! RUN AWAY!!!
Agree with the bombshell review. I love this scent. It's on of my top 5. I always get compliments. Especially from men who like to rub up again me when I wear it. (okay maybe not, but a girl can dream!). Highly recommended. Try!
I didn't know how many lippies to give this since it is so obviously not me. But it had lasting power. It smells unique(ish). Actually it just smells like Benefit Bathina. Exactly. Completely. Identically. This is the Bathina perfume. Which if you liked that stuff would be great! I gave it 4 lippies though because I think in another life I would have liked this. Try it!
Numm Numm! I'm usually a light floral girl. But I am a light floral girl with an inner bulldyke lemming that has a large spiked club that beat the crap out of me to try this since everyone raves about it. Okay.. so I did. (DAMN YOU BUELAH!)
At first it made me sick. Because I put it on, sniffed, turned green, ran to bathroom, washed off. Actually had to practically peel the skin off to get it off. So my first impression wasn't too spiffy.
Then....... one day..... after reading more raves. I tried it again. I made myself sit through the first nauseating 20 mins. (hello! gross!) And WHAM! It was gorgeous! and Unique! And since you only have to really apply it one time in the morning and it lasts basically until the next day. I could do that 20 minute nose-holding thing by myself in the room and noone else has to suffer through it. But it smells gorgeous after that. I get so many compliments!
I don't wear this all the time. Only when I feel sexy. Like a female panther stalking through the night in search of her mate. Sexy. Yumm. It hurts to be beautiful!
Lotions/ Creams -Bliss Labs - High Intensity Hand Cream
jeseryn 5/25/2003 11:10:00 AM
Okay I'm a lotion slave. I put lotion all day on my hands. It's a habit :( Even the people at work comment on it. (prolly cuz I'm stinking them out of the office with my differented scented lotions.) Anyway!!
This is GREAT hand lotion! It makes my hands look younger and oh so soft. Like really soft. Not the 20 mins after application then back to crocodile hands soft. The price SUCKS though! For hand cream? GAWWWWWWWWWWWD!!! I must find something comprable for less because I fly through this and I can't afford to have beautiful soft hands while living in a cardboard box house because I've lost everything supporting this addiction. *slump*
Lip Treatments -Smith's Rosebud Salve - Smith's Rosebud Salve
jeseryn 5/25/2003 11:06:00 AM
Oh Yah! Who's the trendy ho? Me! Woot!!
I finally got myself some rosebud salve! What a cute little tin! What a cute color in the tin! It goes on clear and smells pretty nice.. Mmmmm.. but really.. I survey my computer desk/makeup table and see 8 zillion lip balms. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME??? I AM A SHEEP! I am now having an epiphany... bear with me.. Ohmmmmmmm.. All lip balms are created equal. They are! Some do dry, yes! But NOT MANY!
This pretty balm compares with kiehls, blistex, burt's bee, prada and oh so many others I have. No difference really but the packaging and it made me 5 bucks poorer. I like it, but if you have any other lip balm that just doesn't dry your lips out, you DO NOT NEED THIS. *slump* Yah right.. I'll keep on buying stuff I don't need. :( This is good stuff. *sigh*
Okay ladies! This is GREAT STUFF!
I used to use the perricone alpha thingie that cost a million dollars! (well 95 USD) Then on a whim I bought this stuff and WHOA! I went from red cheeks and rotten skin (which I thought I was just stuck with since I was using the best stuff on the market right?) to fabulous milky beautiful skin. No red blotches, soft and even. Wow! Get this!! (and the serum too!)
I'm kinda undecided on this one. I'm glad I own it, don't get me wrong. I'm a trendy ho. I have pigmented lips. This goes on with a pretty gold sheen. It dulls out my lip color though. Still, I feel sorta sexy with it on. It's not my favorite but it's okay. I know, I know, wishy washy but it's the best I can do!
Meow! I love this e/s! It is an olivey green shimmer. It has the purrrfect consistency. It is the purrrfect color. meow meow meow meow meow. I love wearing this. It makes me literally look all kitten eyed. It softens my look. Even though it's a darker color and I can only pull off choice LOUD colors, this one is purrrrfect. Did I say that already? PURRRFECT! Yumm. Run! Get!
I am a NC35, auburn hair, green eyes, freckles, 35 yo.
Blush -Bare Escentuals - Glee/ all over face color
jeseryn 5/25/2003 10:42:00 AM
Greetings fellow makeup addicts. I was once a NARS blush fan. (think Beetles groupie) NO LONGER! I am now a Bare Escentuals groupie!!
Glee is amazing. I'm a warm NC35 (if I wore that stuff! I'm a mineral powder chick all the way now!) It looks like a natural flush for me. It's gorgeous. It sinks in and blends so you dont have war paint streaks. It shows better and more natural then NARS blushes do. The consistency is marv-eh-lous. It does sexy flushed things to my face that makes the guy at the 7-11 get all raspy voiced (sorry.. he was the last one to fall under my spell before writing this review..heehee)
Definitely try this product. You willllll love it!
Eye Shadow -Bare Escentuals - Celestine Eye Glimmer
jeseryn 5/25/2003 10:38:00 AM
Pretty!! I love Celestine. It's definitely in my top 5 favorite BE e/s. It's a shimmery taupey thing. (I will leave the color descriptions to the more talented)
I love this because it's subtle but magical. Like most BE glimmers. I swipe this on from lid into crease and then line with whatever catches my eye and HELLO! I look fab!
Go buy it! RUNNNNNNNNN!!!!!
I am a MAC NC35, auburn hair, green eyes, freckles, age 35 girlie girl.
Beauty they name is Bare Escentuals eye glimmers.
I am 35. I like glitter, shimmer, strobe lights, fairy wings, bunny slippers, and fuzzy antenna headbands. I work in a professional enviroment. I cannot embrace my inner child there. (woe is me)
I have basically every color MAC makes in e/s. I love alot of them but BE e/s blows them away for satiating my inner child YET keeping professional and not to over the top.
These glimmers which are mostly in natural shades are lovely, beautiful, gorgeous, spectacular, amazing, YAHBABYYAH!! UNF! UNF! (get the picture?)
My favorites are Nude Beach (believe the hype! Very pretty!), Celestine (beautiful taupey), Purrfect(olive greenish..soo pretty!), Sex Kitten (rowwwwr!).
I can't put shimmer stuff up near my brow bone because I look like the old chick from Something About Mary with the 10 foot long boobs. So what I do is basically wear any of the BE shades I have solo. From lid up into the crease. And I look really pretty! Everyone at work says so! My mom says so! My daughter says so! And I didn't even give them cue cards!
BUY THESE! RUNNNNNN! BUY! BUY! BUY!
PS: Use Benefit f-y-eye with all BE e/s. Makes it last alll day and night! (yah yah benefit is the devil and sucks and I HATE IT! But this is the only product that holds e/s this well imo)
I love this stuff. Looove this stuff.. Looooooooooove... LOVE! LOVELOVELOVE!
Okay so I wrote Star Boutique for some samples of their stinky lotions. The nice lady raved about her mineral foundations and said she'd like to include samples. I told her my coloring and she tossed in tracy, jill and whateverthelightestoneis. I wasn't expecting much. I was using teint idole, MAC and Becca foundation and I thought it looked great.
Anyway! I tried the tracy skeptically and WOWZER! Holy cow! I looked amazing! I pranced off to work and about and hour later when it settled.. even more amazing! My skin looked fresh and glowing and natural! My skin but much much much better. Like SUPER DUPER better! I sweat like a naked monkey doing the Richard Simmons workout. This amazing stuff did not cake, melt down my face or get greasy. When I stopped sweating I looked as beautiful as I did when I made myself up in the morning!
Application? Couldn't be easier. I dunno about the BE stuff (just ordered a kit though since I fell in love with this stuff and I am a makeup junkie) but application of this stuff is super simple. Just loaded up the cat kabuki, tapped it on the lid so there was just a light sprinkling on the brush and worked it all over my face. Yumm! I am GODDESS!!
I am a NC35 in MAC foundation. My perfect match is Tracy.
