Bronzers -Chanel - Soleil Tan de Chanel - 547 Bronze Rose
jmh1wdh2 5/18/2011 10:25:00 AM
Chanel - soleil tan de chanel 547 bronze rose really brightens my face. I tried the bronze corail however, it looked muddy on my light olive skin. I personally like the fact that it has different colored stripes so, I can get different looks and the big mirror is really nice. I don't see any shimmer what so ever upon application. My only complaint is that it has a powdery finish. I wish it had the finish of the Soho powder. I can't say that I would repurchase even if it wasn't LE because by the time I hit the pan, Chanel will come out with something else that I like as much or better.
Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand - Salux Nylon Japanese Bath Towel

Love it!! I have the Clarisonic body brush which I hate and the Salux towel is way cheaper and way better. I like that it is long and you can reach your entire back or ball it up to scrub arms, legs or etc. My husband kept complimenting me on how great my skin looked after one use, which he never does.
Lipstick -NYX - Round Lipstick in Orange Soda #588
jmh1wdh2 5/3/2011 6:15:00 AM
I love the color and hate the formula. This lipstick separates on my lips and adding lip gloss makes it worse. I will not be buying anymore NYX lipsticks.
I love love love Mastey's Enove shampoo and matching Frehair conditioner.. They never weigh my hair down nor never dry it out. I have been using Mastey products for about 6 months and now have converted to using all of their products. I feel like the prices are reasonable and the Mastey customer service is stellar. HG for me.
Deodorants -Unlisted Brand - Lavilin Deoderant Cream
jmh1wdh2 3/30/2011 8:22:00 PM
Lavilin Deodorant Cream works if you are patient!!! I have tried every natural deodorant out there with less than satisfactory results and much disappointment. I took 4 whole weeks before it was effective. I just keep putting in on as instructed when I had odor. Now, just as promised, I am only having to apply this about once a week. I am odor free even after sweaty work outs. It is a very thick white opaque paste when applied and dries to a faint white. HG for me.
Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - glysolid glycerin cream
jmh1wdh2 2/12/2011 5:15:00 PM
I love this stuff! I wouldn't really call it a cream, it is much thicker. I only need a little bit to spread over my hands and feet which takes 5-10 minutes to completely absorb in. When it does my skin looks and feels super soft and hydrated. I paid $6.50 after using my Ulta coupon and I think the tub will last forever. Paraben free, great product and great price...I will be purchasing this again.
Sunscreen -Unlisted Brand - Grahams SunClear Natural Sunscreen
jmh1wdh2 12/5/2010 7:03:00 PM
I was so excited to try this after all of the rave reviews and high 25% zinc oxide protection. However, this is way to oily for me and I hate the way it feels on my face..like a heavy suffocating feeling. I would not buy this again.
This blackened burgundy shimmer polish is so complimentary to my golden olive skin tone. It wears well and has a nice glossy finish that is phenomenal. I purchased this on ebay after picking this color at my nail salon for a mani/pedi. I would certaintly repurchase.
My hair loves this along with the Come Clean Shampoo and the Knot Today Conditioner. I do like that the containers are clear so you can see the amount of product used. I have fine long highlighted hair with natural wave. When I let my hair air dry I get curls that I never new I had and when I blow dry with a round brush the results are soft beautiful curls...no frizz and my hair looks super healthy. After a few days my hair holds it style and if I brush it out my still maintains some of the curl. I am really impressed!!. I cannot believe that I am getting these amazing results for a fracture of what I was spending on other HE hair products.

My hair loves this along with the Come Clean Shampoo and the Curling Custard. I do like that the containers are clear so you can see the amount of product used. I have fine long highlighted hair with natural wave and have been using this as a rinse out conditioner. Whether I I let my hair air dry or blow dry it with a round brush the results are soft beautiful curls...no frizz and my hair looks super healthy. The best part is the style lasts for days and I no longer get greasy roots. I cannot believe that I am getting these amazing results for a fracture of what I was spending on other HE hair products.
Orange Fizz is almost the same color as my Chanel Patent Coral Chevron handbag except my bag is a little deeper and just like my bag, Orange Fizz goes with everything!! I get the coverage I want in 2 coats with no chipping. If you want a very classy and understated look then Orange Fizz is a winner. By the way, my husband always compliments me when I wear it.
Hair Styling Tools -Sonia Kashuk - Bristle Hair Brush
jmh1wdh2 7/10/2010 6:38:00 PM
Since I already own a Mason Pearson pocket boar/nylon mix brush it is hard not to compare it to the Sonya Kashuk version. I looked into the SK brush because I wanted the bigger B3 Mason Pearson brush. I read all of the rave reviews here and thought why not save a few bucks. So off to Target only to find that she doesn't even have a dupe of what I wanted which was an all boar bristle brush. She has a larger version of the pocket boar/nylon brush and am sorry to say that there is no comparison. First of all, the Mason Pearson brush has a lot more boar bristles in it and secondly the boar bristles are a lot longer. So, I think it is safe to say that you get what you pay for from Mason Pearson. If some one has never owned a MP brush then the Sonya Kashuk brush might seem adequate however, if you can afford Mason Pearson it will be well worth the investment.
Perfection!!! This liner really brightens the eye without looking unnatural. I have also tried Chanel's Blanc eyeliner which is too white and Stila's Topaz which looks odd on me. The lasting power is better than I expected, I don't expect anything to last all day on my waterline.
I have about 9 brushes in the S100 series...Hakuhodo's flagship brush. These really are the softest brushes that I have ever used. Sure, you can get the same results with less expensive brushes. However, the feel of these on your skin is in a league of their own. One of my favorite things about the brushes is that after you wash them they retain their look and feel..so many brushes start look haggard after washings...not my Hakuhodo's. My only complaint is that they only sell these online or at Makeup Shows.
Mascara -Chanel - Inimitable Mascara Multi-Dimensionnel
jmh1wdh2 7/1/2010 9:20:00 PM
I received a sample of this and will probably buy a full sized one. I have tried them all from HE to drugstore and Chanel's Inimitable is impressive. Pro's doesn't smudge all over my eye at all very dark black with a glossy finish doesn't look dry, flaky or clumpy creates nice length to my lashes Con's price
