I like the smell and all, but I wouldn't buy it again cuz it does not moisturize. I put Chapstick LipMoisturizer on first then the Burt's over it. (so I don't have to waste my money)
This shade is perfect for my green eyes, and peachy skin! Not gawdy gold, more like a bronzy color that went on smooth and natural. Plus I love the little pot it's in, very pretty gold with clear top. Would love to collect more shades! Another eyesha-do!!
With a dry brush this went on a good brown shade, not to dark, not too sheer. I also have trouble with shadow that seems to float out from brush to the side of my face, and this didn't do that. Went on smooth. I would apply with wet brush for more drama, but overall this is a really great eyesha-do!
Lotions/ Creams -Jergens - Soft Shimmer Skin Radiance Moisturizer [DISCONTINUED]

Well, I MIGHT buy this again. I liked it, but Nivea is a little less glittery, and more "glowy". So I'll probably go back to it. Not too bad though.
I think this may be a product that works depending on a person's skin and hair type. It works great for me, but I know it doesn't for everyone. The smell is odd, and the color, but it contains soy, so that may be why. My legs were smoother, and I did shave less after 2 weeks. But it didn't work as well as I'd hoped in bikini area.

This is great on my winter-dry cracked hands and feet. Then I discovered another purpose-it's a great cuticle moisturizer! Now it's all I use for at home manicures, and it's awesome!
Skincare - Face -Revlon - Revlon Colorstay Makeup Remover Pads
mforrester 6/21/2003 3:02:00 PM
Well, it removed the makeup, but it was so oily that it made my face really slick feeling, even after I washed with my regular skin cleanser. Each pad seemed to have oily remover DRIPPING from it. Forget it. I'll be looking for something else!
NONONO! did nothing for my lashes, and I even tried using the colored mascara over another black mascara, and it was practically invisible. Alone, or with anything else it was nowhere to be seen on my lashes.
I have Sinful Professional (is there a difference in professional or non-professional Sinful??) anyway, in Tender Heart, which is a light peachy-creamy beige color. It looks great on me, it's been a fave since I bought it. But I do have to use 3 coats and always a topcoat for shininess, and it seems to fade if you don't use a top coat also. Good enough for me!
Hair -John Frieda - 5-Minute Manager (blowdry lotion)

I have short hair so it works great for me. The key is to spray it on dripping wet hair, which I do before I even step out of shower. You can't even towel dry hair, or it does seem too stiff or sticky. But spray on soaking hair, then use some gel, blow dry straight with a good brush; I love it!!! Less frizz, and good shine.
Gels/Soaps -Yardley - Apothary - Bee a Honey Body Wash

I'd had good luck with the other Apothary products, but this one has no scent, no lather to speak of, and I really can't wait to use it all up or find a way to get rid of it!!

Only problem was the lid. Someone said they poured theirs into a spray bottle. Good idea-think I will too. Love the smell, but most of all it works!!
Styling Products -Citre Shine - Take Hold Styling Glue
mforrester 6/20/2003 11:50:00 AM
The only complaint I have is the glue type nozzle that you have to squeeze it out of. I unscrew the lid too, and it's fine. I have short hair and use it to smooth and "glue" down my part in the front. Lasts all day, and isn't sticky to comb through-just don't forget to only use it on DRY HAIR!!!! :)
Lipstick -L'Oreal - So Delice in Gingerbread (#810)
mforrester 6/20/2003 10:40:00 AM
Love the color-perfect peachy brown color! It's my new "carry with me everywhere" lippie!
I have Potion-orange/red w/ greenish shimmer, Shocking- a violet/blue shimmer, Siberia- minty green/gray (looks surprisingly good on nails), and Pulsating-hot, hot,shimmery fuscia. I love them all, they do dry sort of matte, but I always use a topcoat, so that takes care of that.
