BEST mascara ever and this comes from someone who is very picky and has sensitive eyes. Stays on all day, comes off easily and I think it has even made my lashes fuller. This is the ONE mascara for me! :-)

It is very strange, heard great reviews on this product BUT unfortunately, NONE of the shades worked for my skintone. I am a MAC NC 30-35, and Natural was too dark, Warm sand was too yellow and Beige just didn't look right. I think it is the formulation of the powder too, does not set into skin. Also, I agree with other reviewers that coverage is just way too light.
Powder -La Mer - The Treatment Powder Foundation SPF 15

Beautiful powder foundation and the color "Sand" was a perfect match for me however after a few days use, I noticed tiny bumps all over my forehead. Upon reading ingredients list, I noticed this powder has Yeast in it, which I am allergic to. Unfortunately I can't use this anymore... :-(

Outstanding makeup! Use this in the Medium shade (I am NC30) and have never looked better. Photographs beautifully and makes skin look flawless- Dior & MAC makeup artists both asked me what my base was????!!!!!. Unlike other reviewers I have not experienced flakiness or dryness or more importantly clogged pores or breakouts- I just top this off with a little loose mineral powder and voila. Longlasting too! This is fantastic stuff- definitely worth a try :-)
LOVE this product. I have tried all of the mineral foundations and this is the best one for me- combo skin, sensitive prone to breakouts. I use the color Perfekt and it matches my skin beautifully. Gives a natural glow and keeps skin fresh looking without clogging or irritation. Like this much more than the loose powder version which I did not care for at all....5 LIPPIES!!!
Well, I am glad it is working for some people. I started using it and in the first week noticed greater amount of lashes falling out. Stopped and eyelashes stopped falling out. Maybe I just have an allergic reaction? Did not work for me...

After going through mutliple mineral foundations with no luck, I tried the pressed mineral foundation in color Perfekt, and it works really nicely. Gives me the perfect coverage, no irritation and breakout and also gives the skin a nice glow. I like this and Alima powder foundation in Beige 3...
Powder -Laura Mercier - Mineral Pressed Powder SPF 15

This is by far the best mineral powder foundation I have come across and I have used just about everything! I wear Natural Beige and the color is perfect for me. I think it is very important to wear the LM mineral primer underneath as it sets the makeup. This is good for a combo-normal skin- not sure whether oilier skins or super dry would like this? EDIT: After a few weeks use, I noticed lots of breakouts and color got very dark on me (turned ruddy). Have switched to Colorscience Pressed Minerals.
Powder -Christian Dior - Diorskin Nude Fresh Glow Makeup

This is hands down the best mineral makeup available. I use 020 on top of 021 & 022 mix of Caputre Totale and my skin looks amazing and I don't have the sheen that most minerals have. Like this alot, but I agree with other users that the packaging needs to be redesigned as a square top is hard to untwist! Other than that, super quality as is with the whole Dior line...:-)
Not sure about this product. Like the finish, but everytime I use it, I get a massive pimple somewhere and I ordinarily do not break out. Have switched to my Dior Capture Totale & Cover FX setting powder and my skin feels comfortable and breakout free. I think the coverage may just be a little too heavy for my skin. Plus I believe this contains Talc which is culprit for clogged pores...
This is a new haircare line- check out www.number4hair.com- products are made with the finest ingredients (i.e. acai berry, yogurt...etc.) and are sulfate and paraben free. They were used on models at Fashion Week in New York. I use their clarifying shampoo and repairing mask and my hair has never looked so amazing. Fabuous products and worth every penny!!!! This is a one-of-a-kind product that is simply amazing and compares to no other- seriously check it out!!!
Lipstick -Too Faced - Lip of Luxury - Totally Nude
kjjamm808 10/11/2009 12:22:00 PM
LOVE this lipstick!! My lips have a natural plum tint and this is the perfect nude that transforms them into the Angelina Jolie pout. I use Chanel Nude liner with it or Philosophy Nude liner. Super creamy, longwearing and does not feather- which most nudes. Just bought 3 tubes as I fear it may be discontinued....
Liquid -Christian Dior - Capture Totale Liquid Foundation SPF15
kjjamm808 9/12/2009 11:30:00 AM
I have combo skin, very sensitive prone to breakout and this works like dream! The Dior artist told me to apply lightly with brush and just focus on undereye, nose, and cheekbone area. After that, I dust a light amount of loose powder over and get a flawless, soft look. I am light/med golden and use 031 (Sand), but in winter wear 020 (Cameo). NOTE: Do not overapply this foundation as it will look heavy. Using the brush is key! Also, on pics, this makeup makes you look like a movie star- for a generally non-photogenic person, I LOVE my pics!!! Highly recommended :-)
This is a fabulous eyebrow pencil!! I have tried many other brands and this one is probably the best. I have full brows that need a little penciling in and the Warm Brown matches my brows to a T. It is extremely long-wearing, gives definition and looks VERY natural. All brow pencils have to be sharpened on a regular basis- I bought Benefit's and it only lasted a week plus the quality was not as good! Try this ladies, really you will not be disappointed :-)
I used this conditioner and got NO volume at all and my hair is not considered fine by any means...I also started shedding a little more hair than usual which is not a good sign. It made the hair feel very soft, but I would not repurchase.
