Self Tanners -Fake Bake - flawless self tan liquid

I absolutely love this self tanner. I'm fair to medium with red hair and blue eyes. This gives me a believable tan that isn't orange. I looked bronzed. I also love the application mitt that is included. It gives truly streak free tanning. I will keep purchasing this!
LOVE this product. Makes lips super soft and tastes great. The price is phenomenal as well. Will definitely purchase, again.
This stuff is amazing! Great, BELIEVABLE color. Doesn't look fake or orangey. I also love that it doesn't have that fake tanner smell. Aerotan smells like coconuts...YUMMY! Will definitely re-purchase!
Great brush, great price! Will definitely repurchase again.
Eye Shadow -Revlon - Colorstay 12-Hour eyeshadow quad- Copper Spice

I love this quad. I've been looking for a true copper color for soooooolong and I finally found it! The eyeshadow is amazing, has a tiny amount of shimmer and looks great with red hair/blue eyes. I'm so glad I found this eyeshadow!
I've been using this toner for years and will continue to do so. It's gentle but I like that it has alpha hydroxy in it. It's never drying. A great product.
Without a doubt, this is the BEST powder I've ever used. It's never chalky or cakey. It just gives a very smooth finish. I will continue to purchase again and again!
CD/Books/Movies -Unlisted Brand - How Not To Look Old by Charla Krupp

I absolutely LOVE this book. I bought one for myself and my BFF after seeing Charla Krupp on the Today Show last December! It has a lot of great tips on how to not look old, without looking absurd. Following some of the book's advice, I switched from my matte loose powder to L'Oreal's Translucide loose powder. OMG...what a HUGE difference in my skin. I've also grown out my hair a bit and got highlights. When I look back at pics of myself with short hair, I did look (and I HATE this word) matronly. Arrrrggggghhhhhhhhhh...and I THOUGHT I looked so good. This book offers a lot of ideas and suggestions to update/change your look for the better. I would recommend (and have recommended) this book to anyone who wants to look younger without looking ridiculous. You know, there is that fine line...when 40+ women try to look like they're still in their 20's. A guy friend of mine thought I was 42 (I'm 51) and I asked, 'I look 42?' and he replied, 'no, you look younger'. Is that great, or what??? This book has you looking younger with grace and style!
Eye Shadow -Physicians Formula - Baked Collection - Baked Sands

A great eyeshadow. I love that it doesn't flake and fall onto my cheeks when applying. The consistency is amazing and goes on so smoothly. Like some other reviewers have said, 'shimmery with out the glitter'. I LOVE it. It goes very well with red hair and blue eyes. It's difficult to find shadow colors that compliment that combo. This does it wonderfully and not expensive at all. About $6 bucks at Wal-Mart. My only gripe is the size of the sponge applicator. It's a tad too small but I'll live with it. Will definitely re-purchase!
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Exotic Coconut body splash

I got this on sale for $5.00. Smells wonderful. A great winter pick me up. I don't smell the plastic-y scent that some have said they smell. I've gotten many compliments on this.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - White Tea and Ginger

I bought this last week during the "5 for $25.00" and I absolutely love it. My fave B&BW scent has always been Moonlit Path and this is right up there with it. It is a clean, fresh scent...perfect for night or day and any season. Not too overpowering but does have staying power. I'll re-purchase again and again!
Mascara -Max Factor - Max Factor 2000 Calorie-Deep Auburn

I LOVE this mascara and have been using it for a few years now. It's difficult to find (inexpensively) a mascara that works well with red hair and blue eyes. This is PEFECT. I also like the fact that it washes off in the shower. I will definitely keep purchasing!
Self Tanners -Banana Boat - Everyday Glow-Daily Moisturizer in Medium Skin
merryj 4/20/2006 12:13:00 PM
This is just OK. I have the Jergen's and decided to try this. The color is good but the color also comes off after showering. I apply at night and in the morning, shower. My white towel had 'tanned' after I used it. I say for the buck more, stick with Jergen's.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleanser Cream
merryj 2/13/2006 2:10:00 PM
Horrible. Didn't clean my face at all. I always use a toner afterwards and this left most of my makeup on my skin. I actually had to re-wash my face when I got out of the shower.
