Lip Gloss -Unlisted Brand - Lucy Minerals - Ambrosia Lip Balm
michellemk 11/30/2011 12:55:00 PM
I have this lip balm in the plain- color-less version. I got it as a gift with purchase when I ordered my foundation(which is AWESOME!!). I put the lip balm on right away and wasn't sure about it. The texture and feel on the lips is different than any lipbalm I have tried. I started using it before bed...instead of vasaline. It lasts all night! My lips are super moisturized in the morning. I have never had any lipbalm do this for me. My lips are super dry/cracked. LM Ambrosia lipbalm makes my lips smooth and soft!!!!! I ordered two more tubes... one to keep by my bed and one to keep in my purse! The staying power is awesome throughout the day too... even through eating/drinking! It is only $5 with free shipping right now, so it's also a steal!

This brush is awesome for applying Lucy Minerals foundation! I love it. It is the perfect size, it is so soft too.
Foundations -Unlisted Brand - Lucy Minerals Foundation

LOVE THIS!!!!! The coverage is awesome! Better than any other foundation I have used. I was using EDM intensive formula foundation... went to re-order, and found out they don't make it anymore. I'm so glad that they stopped making it, since I discovered Lucy Minerals while looking for a replacement! Lucy Minerals covers as well (maybe better) as Revlon colorstay. I like lucy minerals better since you don't have to worry about demarkation lines! It looks so natural, but covers everything! Yayyyy!
Eye Shadow -Clinique - Colour Surge eyeshadow duo in Beach Plum
michellemk 5/13/2011 5:07:00 PM
I've been wearing this basically everyday for about a month (since I bought it). It is a beautiful combination. A champagne color and a lilac purple. I have found that it is super easy to blend the darker color into the crease of my eye- and doesn't require much effort to create a beautiful look! I have noticed that if I don't wear eye primer with it, though, it won't last all day. No biggie- though- I usually wear primer anyway!
Eye Shadow -Clinique - Color Surge Duo in Strawberry Fudge
michellemk 5/13/2011 5:01:00 PM
I recently began trying clinique shadows after my coastal scents pallette broke, and I wanted to quickly pick up a good quality shadow. I LOVE THIS!!!! It is gorgeous! I'm fair, and I have always had trouble creating a 'smokey' look on my eye. This makes it super easy and it can be as subtle or dramatic as you want. The shadows in the duo look so beautiful together. It makes applying eyeshadow effortless, but looks like it took a lot of effort! I'm a clinique convert!!
O.k.... I'm officially in love! I bought this product in hopes of replacing my mineral makeup routine. I use EDM... usually I use 2 of their concealing powders along with the foundation. Which is a lot of work, and it usually wares off within a couple of hours on my skin! I tried this for the first time today... it's AMAZING!!! Gives awesome coverage without having to apply layers of different products. It's perfect for a busy mom.... just sweep it on and you're good to go! It also seems to last longer than EDM (for me)... Yay!! Try it, you won't be sorry!

Oh, I love this! It has so many beautiful colors. I have used it everyday since i received it. I love to coordinate my eye makeup to whatever I wear- and this has all the colors I could ever need! All of the colors are so pigmented, you can make so many beautiful combinations. HG!
Lotions/ Creams -Eucerin - Aquaphor Healing Ointment
michellemk 7/2/2009 9:34:00 AM
My lips are dry and peel alllll of the time.... I was so sick of it, so I did some research and picked up a tube of aquaphor. It is wonderful. My lips are soft and smooth. I use the aquaphor at night, and my lips are so soft in the morning. For use during the day, I put some aquaphor in one of my EDM sample containers and mixed it with EDM blush/eyecolor and now I have a beautiful gloss that actually moisturizes all day! I love this product! It is a must have for dry/cracked/peeling lips. I have to say- It is much better than vasaline- which I tried for a long time for my lips... it never worked like aquaphor.

I LOVE THIS!!! I'm on my second bottle. I have thin, fine - mostly straight hair. I use this when I want to curl my hair. I spray it before I use the curling iron/ flat iron, and then spray afterwards. My usually lifeless-quick to flatten hair, stays curled all day!
Powder -Everyday Minerals - Foundation - Intensive formula [DISCONTINUED]
michellemk 4/6/2009 6:42:00 PM
I loooove EDM. I really like this formula. It is great coverage with a matte finish. I especially love how fast the application is, compared to liquid foundation. It feels like you are wearing no makeup at all, and it blends in so well- it just looks like your skin is perfect. It wares off after a few hours on my skin, though. Edit: I believe they stopped making this formula. I feel like it wasn't working well for me anyway. Since looking for a replacement I found Lucy Minerals. Lucy is the best I have ever tried! Serious coverage and great lasting power!
Styling Products -Beyond The Zone - Super Sexy Texture & Distort Spray
michellemk 2/16/2009 6:36:00 PM
This is a great product! My hair is not naturally wavy. It waves in spots, but not a pretty all over wave. After using this product- my hair looks naturally wavy. I love it- It looks so sexy and messy. I actually like the seperation it gives the hair, kind of crispy. But if you comb out your hair- it still looks great. I will definately repurchase! It makes getting ready for work quick and easy- no need to blowdry anymore!
Powder -Everyday Minerals - Foundation Matte Formula
michellemk 9/12/2008 4:51:00 PM
I LOVE THIS!!!! I ordered a couple of the sample kits this past winter, and I was able to find the perfect shade. Until recently- I only used it when I was in a hurry and didn't want to put on my liquid foundation. It is so easy to apply. But, recently- I started to break out-- so now I wear this all of the time instead of my liquid foundation. I don't know why I even messed with liquid foundation. The coverage with EM is awesome... and you don't have to put much on! It lasts all day- except for on my nose... which gets oily with anything. I just ordered my 6 piece kit and it is amazing! Try the kibuki... so soft and fun!! This is a must have makeup... much better than BE!!!
Conditioner -Clairol - Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship
michellemk 8/20/2008 10:35:00 AM
This- along with the long term shampoo left a greasy residue on my scalp after about a week of use! Nasty. My hair would feel and look fine until late afternoon- when it started to look extremely greasy and feel that way too. Yuck!
Mascara -Maybelline - Define A Lash Volume Mascara
michellemk 5/9/2008 12:38:00 PM
I had to review this to try and get the rating up. It iis awesome!!!! I loved my voluminious mascara, but after a while the wand would get clumpy. I bought this because it came with the eyeliner which I love. I just can't believe how my lashes look everytime I use this. Incredible, almost like i am wearing false lashes. I love the brush and how it comes out clean every time. Crazy system! Try it, ladies - you won't be disappointed.
Styling Products -Brocato - Mousse Volumizing Foam
michellemk 5/9/2008 12:33:00 PM
I really like this product. It doesn't make my hair crispy, even if I let it air dry. It has nice hold... could be better. It does the job for me. I have fine, straight hair.
