This is my signature fragrance and is very special to me since I used it on my wedding day. It's a sweet calming scent that's gentle (won't give anyone a headache). I LOVE it!
Powder -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light Medium [DISCONTINUED]
lemarais88 7/15/2010 7:34:00 PM
This is a great powder foundation that doesn't cause any breakouts for me to my relief (I have combo skin) :) The compact will last for quite some time. I was using Bare Minerals before; I liked it except it was messy to use :( so I bought this MAC PF instead. I will probably stick to it from now on :) I only wish the compact came with a mirror and a hidden brush underneath so it would be more convenient to use during travels.
This is the only liquid foundation I will use since it's so light, provides good coverage, and offers SPF protection too. When I do use it, I will brush on a thin layer of face powder to help set it. I have oily skin but it doesn't make my skin more oily. To use this TM, I dot it around my face and use a synthetic brush for blending. Sometimes I will use my fingers to blend it. A little bit goes a long way which is good since it's kind of expensive.
Styling Products -Victoria's Secret - So Sexy Smoothing Shine Serum
lemarais88 7/15/2010 7:23:00 PM
I'm nuts about this product and have gone through many many bottles since I've been using this product ever since it was introduced. It does a great job in softening my hair without making it feel greasy and I can easily comb my hair after a shower (my hair is very prone to tangles). I don't have to use very much of this product; a little goes a long way. I only use it on my ends. I only wish the bottle was made of plastic instead of glass since I'm afraid of breaking it by accident.
This product is a decent exfoliator but my lips have not been that chapped this winter so I can't really attest to how it may help very chapped cracked lips. The scent/taste is pleasant like candy. It's a bit messy to use so I always have to hover over my sink when I apply this to my lips; I use it mostly at night. The product is packed really tight so it looks like I haven't made much of a dent in it though I use it fairly often. I have all the different flavored lip scrubs and love all of them except for the messiness.
Shampoo -Korres - Sunflower Extract and Vitamin F Shampoo

I have sensitive dry scalp and this has been an amazing product for me. I love the scent too :) I have bought back-ups already because I love it so much. Korres sometimes has generous offers for this product yippeeee. I really wish Korres would make a corresponding Sunflower conditioner!
I am crazy about SLs in general and have collected quite a few flavors already. Why are the flavors so difficult to find :(? Very moisturing, nicely scented, I use this throughout the day but mostly at night or when my lips are a bit chapped. They come in great flavors (something for everyone). They are the best chapsticks I've tried.
I've used JTs for many years now and love them. The packaging allows for simple application with its whistle tip (don't even need a mirror), comes in a variety of awesome colors, I do love the sweet scent. The only drawback is that it's a bit sticky; my hubby has complained a little and also not great when you are riding in a car with the windows down and your hair is flying all over the place (hair sticking to lips) :(.
This is the best primer I've ever tried. I have combo skin so I always worry if something's too oily or makes my skin look/feel oily. No worries with this product! It really gives my skin a natural dewy look and I love the way it feels on my skin. Wish it wasn't that expensive : / but a little goes a very very long way. Makes the makeup that I use really last throughout the day. I get sooo many compliments about how great my skin looks everytime I wear this. Love Meteorites :)!
Bronzers -Guerlain - Terracotta Light Sheer Bronzing Powder- Brunette 02
lemarais88 7/15/2010 6:50:00 PM
I love Guerlain's bronzers, especially this mosaic one :) I sometimes use it as a blush and have received many compliments because it looks so natural. The product has great lasting power. I wish Guerlain's products were less expensive. All of Guerlain's packaging is gorgeous; no contest there!
My favorite color has been Summer Angel (very popular this summer so it was difficult for me to find). I own most of the neutrals and pinks. Really love them! Great staying power, the scent is so-so and sort of retro to me (I like L'Oreal lipstick scents more for some reason), comes in great colors- something for everyone, very moisturizing, and I'm in love with the shiny violet purple packaging although that's not the most important thing to me but it's a plus :)
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - HIP Color Truth Cream Eyeliner in Brown
lemarais88 7/15/2010 6:38:00 PM
Love this product! Easy to apply with a liner brush, non-smudge, dries almost immediately, brown= softer look. Great product which has made me change my mind about eyeliners. I used to use pencils that tended to hurt because they were a bit dry :(. The only pencils I would consider using are the Urban Decay 24/7s.
This concealer does a very good job in concealing under-eye circles and small blemishes for me. I tend to apply it with a synthetic brush or my fingers. Many times I will use finishing powder to help it blend into my skin so it looks more natural. I wish the compact was a flip top with a mirror but oh well.
I've tried many eyebrow pencil brands but this is the best one! Non-smudging in any weather (very important to me), looks natural, two-tone color for added choice, and a plus that it's packaging is so pretty :) The only other one I would consider is by Korres.
I have used many different brands throughout the years, from L'Oreal, NARS, Guerlain, YSL, Christian Dior, to Chanel but I've decided to stick to CG Lash Blast for these reasons: non-clumping, easy to remove at night, great coverage, love the way my lashes look :), the wand stays moist, easy to find, and reasonably priced as compared to other brands. I also love CG Fusion mascara.
