Lip Gloss -Bobbi Brown - Shimmer Lip Gloss - Rose Gold Sugar

On me this is a YLBB peachy rose gloss with just enough subtle shimmer to really wake up my face. Not too shimmery for the office and I think this gives a nice, natural look. I've been wearing it nonstop since I bought it. It's a little on the sticky side and the brush sucks, but this is such a great color I happily put up with those things. If I were to lose it tomorrow, I'd repurchase.
I received a deluxe sample of this from Sephora a few months back and really like this product. When I use it at night, I wake up with the softest, smoothest skin. I'll definitely be repurchasing.
I have fine hair and this works for me when I use a straightening iron. Otherwise, it makes my hair limp and flat. I'll keep looking for something better. Edited to say: I've had MUCH better results using this on wet hair vs. dry. It's now a HG product for me, lol. It makes my fine somewhat frizzy hair smooth and sleek. I have a bad hair day without it! Will definitely repurchase.

Great for my fine hair - doesn't weigh it down. Makes my hair smooth and soft, helps with flyaways. Will repurchase.
Introducing thirteen stunning shades of metallic shimmer that put the sparkle, literally, back into your eyes. The lighter than air formula incorporates twinkling flecks of customized pearls and ultra-fine shimmer to bring out the rich, radiant pigment of each shade. Applies beautifully to the eye and stays on for hours! Each loose powder shadow comes in a small, shaker top jar.
The texture and versatility of these shadows are superb. They can be used dry for a subtle look or wet for more emphasis. #10 is a beautiful bronze/rose color (a dead ringer for NARS Mykonos eyeshadow). Stila doesn't have a shade like this in its collection already so this is a good purchase if you already own a ton of Stila.
I pair this with Twig as a liner. Great for hazel eyes!
Palettes -Stila - Orient Bamboo Blossom Palette (Spring 2005)

Yes, the packaging is adorable and sturdy and the colors are beautiful, but I just don't love this. First, it's much to similar to the Peach Daquiri trio that came out a couple of years back. Second, I found the eyeshadows to be much too sheer. And strangely, the liner is very hard and difficult to get on my liner brush. I seem to either get not enough or way too much. Lastly, the blush is a little too harsh for my winter complexion and looks garishly bright, even when applied with a light hand. It's a bad contrast with the sheer eyes. I wouldn't repurchase.
Treatments -Avon - ANEW Clinical 2-Step Facial Peel

I've only been using this for a couple of weeks and already notice an improvement in my skin tone, texture, and a slight reduction of acne scarring. My skin feels incredibly soft the day I use this and wish I could use it every day. My skin feels drier than normal but attribute this to the dry winter weather, not the product. If all continues to go well, will definitely repurchase.
Tested this at Sephora and couldn't wait to wash it off... initial lemon smell reminded me of household cleaning products, it dried down to smell exactly like Clean (which I can't stand). Definitely sample this before you buy...
Eyeliner -Bobbi Brown - Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Bronze Shimmer
kitten75 12/7/2004 3:30:00 PM
Received this from a very generous swapper and loved it on first sight. It was a darker brown than I was expecting, but so pretty. I concur with all other reviewers that this will last all day without smudging, and is a cinch to apply. I really need Bobbi Brown to make this color a regular part of her line, and would LOVE to be able to purchase a full size of this.
I'm oddly addicted to this perfume. It smells just terrible on me at first (I've detected notes of plastic and even *gasp* cat urine) - but then dries down to something just lovely and unique. I'm giving this four lippies despite the odd initial scent - the bottle and the end result of the scent are both divine.
This is the most gorgeous color I've ever seen - a beautiful warm golden rose. However, like all cream eyeshadows, this has a tendency to crease and fade. I took off a lippie for the lack of staying power, but the color is so unique and amazing that I'd have to repurchase in spite of that.
Treatments -L'Oreal - Dermo-Expertise ReFinish Micro-Dermabrasion
kitten75 9/20/2004 3:29:00 PM
I've been using this for just over a week and I love it. My face is so soft and smooth, it's hard not to use this every day.
This price tag may seem a bit steep, but when you consider the cost of microdermabrasion or a chemical peel in a derm's office, this is a steal.
I'll update once I've used this for about a month. Hopefully I'll still be loving it!
Decorated with the famous pink ribbon of hope and awareness, The Stila Pink Ribbon Set comes with a lip color and compact containing two eyeshadows and a cheek color.
Set includes Eye Colors in Heather (a shimmering pink base) and Diamond Lil (a smoky brown), Cheek Color in Bloom (a sweet fuchsia powder blush), and sheer lip color in Anni (a pretty, delicate pink)."
I picked this up sight unseen over the weekend and absolutely love these color combinations. Pink just makes me feel so pretty. I never would have put Heather and Diamond Lil together but they really work well. Bloom is a beautiful just in the from the cold pink. I'm fair, so I use this with a light hand and its very sheer and beautiful. Anni is a very sheer, subtle, slightly frosty pink. I wish this were a little bit more pigmented, but I do like that it is very moisturizing and doesn't dry out my lips in the slightest.
Overall, a great set for $35 and I'm thrilled to help support Breast Cancer Awareness at the same time.
This foundation is great for a drugstore product. Pros: It goes on very sheer, yet does a fantastic job evening out redness and smoothing overall skin tone. The texture is amazing and soft. Cons: Emphasizes any flakiness of the face (I need to use a good exfoliator beforehand). Color range could use some improvement. Matte finish isn't long lasting and makes me look a bit flat. Overall, I like something a bit more dewy. Probably wouldn't repurchase unless they come out with new shades. But a good product for the price.
Shampoo -John Frieda - Brilliant Brunette Shine Release Volumizing Shampoo

Like the packaging, the lather, the faint chocolate smell, but this does strip my hair a little bit. Not a big concern as I'm always worried about OVER moisturizing my ultrafine hair (and thus making it limp). My hair is nice and shiny after use, but I haven't noticed any new highlights. Nevertheless, a fine product for the price.
