ON TREND! This is a fabulous color for fall. It's a grauve ( grey/mauve). This color looks great on me and I have cool pink undertones to my skin. The brush is the best nail polish brush I have ever come across in my 30 years of wearing the stuff. It's a wider flatter brush that holds the perfect amount of polish to enable you to get the perfect swipe from base to tip. The brush bristles are slightly firmer which allows for better control. Whoever designed this brush - WELL DONE! Add this color to your collection girls!!
This is the polish I wear every single day. I have fair skin and this is the best nude pink polish i've ever bought. Been buying this since 2004. I finish every bottle. This polish never streaks and it seems to resist chipping. The color is beautiful, the consistency/quality of the polish is superb - money well spent.
This nail polish was $12.00!! ARGHH!!! I could not believe how streaky this turned out and I know how to apply polish. There has to be something wrong with the formulation on this one. It's unworkable. Looks like a great shade in the bottle, just not on your nails. Do not purchase !!!
I live in Canada. I have suffered more chapped lips in my lifetime, let me tell you. For years I used Vaseline, which did provide some relief but took a couple of days to cure a really bad case of the chappies. I picked up some Blistex in my twenties and this stuff CURED MY CHAPPED LIPS AT ONE APPLICATION. I was dumbfounded at this stuff. Now, as soon as I feel the onset of a case of the chappies I apply this ointment and I DO NOT GET CHAPPED LIPS. Crazy as it sounds I haven't had chapped lips in years and years because of this stuff. This ointment, in my opine, is just short of a miracle. Worth every penny I've ever spent on it - and I suppose that's quite a but since I've been using it for twenty years!
Eye Makeup Remover -Lancome - Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Make-up Remover

This water and silicone based eye makeup remover can handle anything. No rubbing or pulling at the skin. A number of my family members use this product and everyone of us girls swears by it. It's pricey but it's my eyes we're talkin about here. I will always have it on hand until the day comes where I don't wear eye makeup anymore. And I hope that days a long way off.
This is the best mascara on the market for those of us with poker straight, thick lashes. We have unique problems. Once my lashes are curled I need to apply a waterproof formula mascara in order for the curl to stay. And not all waterproof mascaras are formulated the same way. I've purchased some WPF mascaras that, while they may be waterproof, don't hold the curl. This mascara does it all. My curl stays in my lashes until I remove this mascara and NONE of this mascara deposits under my eye - NONE. I can't always afford to purchase this mascara and sometimes settle with great lash waterproof mascara but it just isn't the same. I try to purchase this mascara when there is a bonus on which Lancôme often features. I remove this mascara with Lancôme's Bi-Facils Double Action eye makeup remover which I ALWAYS have on hand because it removes makeup like a dream and there is no tugging or rubbing involved on my eye area. (But that's another review. ). All in all, I can say that this mascara is the Cadillac of mascaras for me and my needs.
Powder -Revlon - ColorStay Aqua Mineral Finishing Powder

I like this powder. It goes on feeling wet and feels cooling on the skin. My skin is pretty good overall and I use tinted moisturizer everyday. I wanted a powder to sort of set the TM but not look too powdery, if that makes sense. This did it. It also feels so good on, can I say that again. I think because my skin leans to the dry side it appreciates a not too drying powder. I would recommend trying this out first to see if it's for you before purchasing. I would have passed on this if I had just gone with the reviews here. But my skin likes this product.
