My hair dresser has been using it on me for years. He puts me under the dryer for 40 minutes, double the recommended time to seal the color in. It usually lasts 4-6 weeks before I need a touch up. I can push it to 8 weeks. I use 9AA & 8C for a perfect light red, like the Coco model. I get tons of compliments and everyone thinks it is my natural color. You own color shows through so it looks really natural. Now that my hair dresser works 2 hours from my home. He taught me to do it myself. 1 time it's all over the next time I touch up roots and do a gloss over the rest. My hair is in really good condition. I wash my hair 2 times a week. ( I have wavy/curly hair). This is great stuff.

I just bought my 2nd tube of this cleanser. It works great with the Clarisonic skin care brush. The scent is pleasant and it is thick enough to hold up to using the bush without getting to red and rinses off well. I am not getting my winter surface dehydration that would cause breakout. I
I bought this at a makeup master class last April. 7 months later & using it nightly, I am only 1/2 through it. It is perfect for taking off mascara as well as face make up. I tend to get lazy but I have not gone to bed without washing my facing since purchasing. I may have had a slight break out when 1st trying, they cleared quickly. This is common whenever trying a new poduct. I like it and it is easy to use. Even though it is pricey to start. It is ending up to be economical. I not longer need to have eye makeup remover as well as face cleanser.

I have been using this brush for 3 weeks now. Immediately my skin felt smoother. Using the gentle brush and low setting prevented the reddness & irritation I would get when trying dermabrasion kits, alpha serums scrubs etc. The pores on my nose & chin are getting unclogged ( a first!). It saves on the other products used for it takes much less to absorb into the skin and I have no afternoon shiniess. Having have some broken capilaries since my pre teens, I have redness that I need to coverup & must be careful with blush anything pink is dangerous. At 46, my skins looks great. I even was late for work last week ond only had time to put on tinted moisurizer along with my primer. Then I quickly added a little of the Nars South Beach multible on. My boss exclamed over how pretty my skin is; amazed I could pull of a "no make up" look. The compliments have been coming since I started using. I work in a very image consious fashion environment. When the oldest gal in the office is the one getting compliments how her skin, something is working. The previous reviewer suggested that ones with broken capilaries do not use this. Well, in my care they are less noticable, taking much less to even out out my skin. It could be because they were damaged so long ago? This is coming after the holidays when I skin is usually at it's worse. I have had my hormonal pimples that cleared up in a day instead of a week or two. My results have already sold a few co-workers on this brush. I could not be happier.
Eye Shadow -Isadora - Triple Eyeshadow in Classic Nougats

This ES glide and blend beautifully. The perfect neutral finished eye, much like is featured in the July Vogue editoral pages. With a eye primer, I put them on at 7:30 am and it is now 10:03 and it still looks soft and perfectly finished. This coming from a oily lidded girl that usually melts off most eye shadow. A Big Love from me.
I first got this in a nice Chocolate brown color which looked great & I got lots of compliments on. My boyfriend however, hated it. He must of had a bad memory of someone with that color of nails. He could not get over it so I stopped using it. It was the 1st polish to stay on my thin nails. So I just got some more in Timeless nude which is a warm nude tone, very nice with my fair skin tone. I tested out the color on a hand to see it how it looked before giving myself an actual manicure. After reading the feedback that it is hard to take off, I tried it out for myself. It came off immediately. I used cotton rounds w/ Sally Hansen Salon pump Maximun strength non acetone remover. I've never had good luck removing with toilet paper or cotton balls. They are messy.
