Primer/ Corrector -ModelCo - Fase Base - Skin Primer

This is the best primer I have used. It is fantastic for creating a flawless finish that lasts all day. I have very dry skin with elarged pores and some lines. This primer seems to even it all out so when my makeup goes on it is smooth, smooth, smooth. I have very sensitive skin that often breaks out with silicome heavy products but this doesn't bother my skin at all. Wonderful stuff. Definately my HG primer.
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Kosmea Eighth Natural Wonder Facial Serum

I love this revitalising serum. It is a light creamy gel texture that quickly settles into the skin making it soft, smooth and radiant without too much sheen. It is based on Rose Hip Oil and Hibiscus extract and is high in antioxidants. It stimulates cell renewal helping to even out the complexion. The manufacturer says that it can be used on its own, but as I have very dry skin I find that it is lovely under my moisturiser or blended with Kosmea's Organic Rosehip Oil. I also mix a few pumps into my weekly hydrating mask (Biotherm) and it gives it more oomph. RAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is the only powder I can use. Great for setting makeup, preventing shine and its an absolute life saver in summer. It really stops liquid foundations from running off without living too much build up. For a really long lasting base I use the powder underneath my liquid foundation and it lasts all day without looking chalky.
Scrubs -L'Occitane - Gentle Face Buff - 5% Shea Butter

This product is lovely but a bit rough and tumble. It's messy and smelly and the jar is horrible and rubbing the dried scrub off your face is uncomfortable, but ten minutes sacrifice is worth it for soft, smooth, nourished skin that really does glow.
Cleansers -Aesop - Purifying Facial Cream Cleanser
krllama 9/28/2006 8:53:00 AM
This was my favourite cleanser for years but the effect gradually wore off. At first it left me with lovely soft, fresh feeling skin and didn't trigger any sensitivities. However after a while I found that it wasn't cleansing enough so I moved on to bigger an better things (Dermalogica). The price kept increasing too whilst the package kept getting smaller. Too much for a cleanser that was just 'ok'.
This is my favourite 'everyday' colour. It is so versatile...it can be used for a smoked eye, blended with a darker shade or set off with a bright liner. The finish is slightly shimmery (not glittery) and it lasts and lasts.
Great product. Gives brows a lovely well groomed look. My eyebrows are much fairer then my natural hair colour and I find this product gives the right amount of colour and really structures my face. It is also handy as you can just slick it on rather than fiddle with a pencil or poweders.
This mascara rocks. It makes my short fair lashes long, full and very glamorous. Definately the best 'high impact' mascara I have tried. I have taken 1 lippie off as it does irritate my eyes.
Wonderful bronzer. Very nice brown shade as opposed to orange like many other bronzers. Nice texture with a little bit of sparkle to brighten skin. I am quite fair (NC20) with red cheeks but Laguna helps to even out my skin tone.
I love this foundation. It is so beautiful. I have horrible skin - dry, large pores, fine lines, dark circles etc, but this foundation makes my skin look perfect, well as close to perfect as it ever will. The excellent pump dispenser hygienically delivers this soft fluid that spreads evenly and smootly over the skin. It is moisturising and not heavy though you can build it up. I have the worst under eye circles and this covers so well I dont need concealer. I tend to use the fluid in summer and the creme in winter but they are both as fantastic as each other.
Crème -Chanel - Vitalumiere Satin Smoothing Creme Makeup

This is my HG foundation. I spent years trying all varities of foundations searching for the one that would be rich and moisturising without looking too heavy and I found it. I have been using Vitalumiere for over a year now and the novelty has not worn off. It is smooth, feels nourishing, doesn't irritate and covers all of my imperfections (of which there are many - pores, freckles, lines). This foundation is for anyone with dry skin and imperfections that wants skin that glows and feels soft. Regardless of makeup trends - this will always be my faviourite.
This treatment is wonderful for calming my skin when its inflamed or if I have had too much sun. It is instantly cooling and reducing swelling. I have used this with the recovery moisturiser and I find it too light for my dry skin. I do however use it with my regular moisturiser and it works on its own. I highly recommend this product for those with reactive skins.
Moisturizers -Murad - Correcting Moisturizer SPF 15
krllama 9/27/2006 12:11:00 AM
Very light, refreshing moisturiser. I use this with the treatment gel when my skin flares up and in summer when I've had too much sun. Although it doesn't get rid of the redness it certainly eases the burning irritation of sensitive skin. As my skin is quite dry, i find this moisturiser unsuitable for winter as I have to apply it twice to get rid of tightness. Great for calming though.
This mask is a skin saviour. I use it about once a week and my skin is just luminous afterwards. I have just used it today and I cannot stop touching my skin, it feels so smooth and soft. It is even good for dry chapped lips. I have found the best way to use this mask is to put it on straight after a warm shower, leave it on for 15 mins, spray face lightly with toner or flower water and wipe off. The result: dewy, soft, glowing skin.

OMG, this stuff is beautiful. It is so moisturising and I just want to eat it, it smells that good. Good texture, lathers up nicely and keeps skin clear.
