After a long search for my perfect foundation, I have finally found it!!! Over the last six months, I have tried nearly every foundation out there. This claims to have a demi-matte finish, and is "spot on!" It works great on my mostly oily skin (especially in the summer). I also have quite a bit of hyperpigmentaion and some acne scarring and this covers well. In Mac, I'm an NW 25-30, and I am using the shade 5.5, which matches my skin nicely. I top this with Bare Minerals Veil, and it seems to last for at least 8 hours, looking just as good if not better than when I first put it on. This is definitely a winner, and I highly recommend!!!
Lipstick -Estee Lauder - Double Wear -Stay Magnolia

I just bought this lipstick in Magnolia at the CCO today. It is the pink I've been looking for. Perfect for summer, and not drying at all. I wish I would have bought two, but just checked the EL website, and it is still part of their regular line. What a relief! LOVE IT!!!
I recently bought "Ravishing," and love it!! It is a beautiful coral color that's not to over the top, and perfect for summer w/ my skintone (NC 35/37). I also bought the Plushglass in Big Kiss, and the ProLongwear lip pencil in Electra. These were all suggested to me by the MAC MUA, and they really are a beautiful combo.!
Love, love, love this!!! I have been on a quest to find my perfect foundation, and after months of trying everything I could get my hands on, I decided I would settle for something even just very good. When I finally purchased this in shade #6 ( I'm NC35 ish), I found my perfect match in color and foundation!!! The Florida summer is upon us, and I'm finding this is holding up for at least 8 hours on my combo. but mostly oily skin. I use Obagi skin care followed by Victoria's Secret pro primer spf 20 with this foundation on top. I also use a light dusting of MAC's MSF and I'm good to go! Thank you YSL!!
Treatments -Sally Hansen - Creme Hair Remover for Face

PLEASE...Do not use this!!!! I felt an obligation to write this review. I used this creme hair remover for the first time this morning, and it burned the living #@$! out of my face. 8 hours later, my face still burns, and is red and raw! I had to cleanse with olive oil, and the only creme I can put on my face is La Mer (doesn't burn), Do be very careful if you decide to use this!!!!!
