Nails -Unlisted Brand - t.i.p.s. by ask cosmetics polish remover

the best polish remover i have ever ever used! it removes polish in a flash and i can use one cotton pad to remove the polish off of all my nails!! it's amazing!! the product has tips treatment oil in it so it never dries your nails. so long powdery, chalky looking nails after removing polish. it is expensive but you use so much less than you do other removers and you can only buy it in the US through QVC. currently it sells for $21 for two 4 oz bottles of remover. canada can go through the ASK cosmetics website to buy.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

THE BEST! i stopped trying to find anything better because i honestly don't believe that there is anything better. my eye shadow refuses to crease. even if i beg...lol! it just takes a little swipe on my lids. i tap over them and i am good to go. the only odd thing is the package. it is pretty cute, i will give it that but odd... i dropped one once and the top cracked. it didn't last long after that. dried out and was useless. so be careful not to drop it!
bummer. this product does not stay on my lids. it migrates and moves all over the place. i love the adorable little card cases with lots of different colors. i wish they worked for me. might have to try again with my UDPP. maybe that will help.

so far i am really liking this product. it give minimal coverage which i like better than a heavy product. i love that it has an spf in it. if i have an area where i need a bit more coverage i just use a dab of concealer and my skin looks great and not masky. i think i will purchase this one again
Lotions/ Creams -Serious Skin Care - Olive Oil body oil

ugh! i could not get past the smell of this! why oh why does SSC add heavy scent to every one of their products. i have tried many and i don't think i have kept a single one because of the perfume added to them. yuck! it may be a wonderful product otherwise, but i will never know unless they cut out the perfumes...
fantastic brush. i don't have a better cream blush brush in my arsenal. top quality!! applies paulas cream blush perfectly!
thank you paula! what a truly lovely blush. this color looks so dark in the pot but it goes on deliciously sheer. the texture is creamy and moist and stays on all day. i got it with her ab fab brush and it is a wonder in itself. but this blush is easily applied with fingertips too. i can dab a little on my eyelids and get a lovely monochrome look. i have even used it on my lips with a lip balm. it is a bit dry for lips otherwise, but it's not meant for lips anyway. i want to try other paula dorf cream blush colors. i am adding it to my swap wish list!
i was so sad.... i wanted to give my heart forever to this mascara, i really did!! the scent is divine! like rose water. so lux!! the mascara made my lashes so thick and full and gorgeous. it was true love... for about two weeks. then diorshow changed. he turned into a big flake, as in flaking all over my face. what a jerk!! i loved him. i adored him!! i thought i had found THE ONE. but diorshow made a fool out of me. i sent him packing. right back from where i picked him up at and got my $$$$ back. diorshow was a total tease to me. momma doesn't like a tease!
a staple! protects skin from environmental bad guys. hydrates and smooths. and a tiny bit goes a long way. the product comes in a pump bottle and a full pump is too much. i use this with the Fountain of Youth serum in a lovely skin treatment cocktail.
great idea for a lip liner. i hate the ring around the mouth look that lip liners can leave. but this product is clear and you line the outside of your lips and it leaves no color. it provides a barrier to keep your lippies in place and not have any of that dreaded migrating into those little lines around the lips. the pencil itself is fat and it would be nice if it was a bit finer and often when i sharpen it the product will break off in the sharpener. grrrr...then you have to sharpen it down a bunch more. but other than that i love it and repurchase it.
Treatments (Eye) -Elysee - Eternal Youth Eye Serum

i think this is the best eye treatment ever! it comes in a roller ball package so you just roll it around your eyes. the product itself is so light and absorbs so quickly leaving no trace at all. you makeup applies like a dream over it. i have never experienced a product like this before. it is a must have. i have 3 backups in my beauty arsenal! get it! try it! love it!!
love this scent. sweet and sexy!! i wish it wasn't unavailable now... sad christmas. sad sad christmas
ugh! awful. this dries and flakes off into my eyes. horrible and i like much of isomers line but this one stinks! sorry. maybe if it was thicker, more gel like so it clung to my lashes rather than going on thin and drying to flakes.
SHOCKED!!! that is what i am, seeing all these good reviews of this mess. awful. period. i would be mortified if i went out in public with this on. can believe that a mascara could actually make your lashes look shorter? if too long of lashes are your beauty bane you may want to check this product out, otherwise, DON'T DO IT!

this is the one product i have found that has really made a difference in the deep line on my forehead. i'm 37, with sensitive skin. don't have lots of wrinkles just that MASSIVE on on my forehead. but the APH-3 has truly made a difference in the depth of it. love it!
