I just received this in a swap and am amazed at how similar this lipglass is to the lipgelee 'moonstone". If you were a fan of the now discontinued and HTF moonstone than try to get your hands on this gloss. The color is a bit more pink but everything else is the same. I have but one tube left of moonstone and am so happy I was able to find this replacement.
Skincare - Body -Unlisted Brand - Mr. Pumice - Pumi Bar
mmhilla 6/12/2011 4:34:00 PM
Just like the review below, I have also only purchased the extra course pumice bar. It really works wonders for your callouses and for the skin around your toes. I use after showering, when my feet are softened. I stay in the shower to rinse off as this bar breaks down with use much faster than traditional pumice bars. But it works well and cost only around $2.50 from Sally Beauty Supply.
Treatments -Graham Webb - Vivid Color Reparative Shine
mmhilla 4/26/2011 1:51:00 PM
This is by far the best shine serum I have encountered. I have fine wavy highlighted blonde hair. I need something light that offers a lot of shine. I have used the inexpensive brands and they are OK, I have tried Aveda, Biosolk, Pureology, Paul Mitchell Skinny, and bedhead, and this serum for me is the best I have found. I use it after my hair is styled on the ends, and tousle the back. A small pea size is enough for me and I have long hair. I do not use this on wet hair, for that I use a cream and let my hair air dry. (FF glossing cream, or Pureology Dry shine)
This is a great nuetral color if you are cool toned. It definately shows up on my eyelids with or wothout a primer. I use it as an everyday color and love the sparkly look it gives my eyes. It is a very basic color, and I am sure every line has a color like this, but since I have the Mac one and I like it, I see no other reason to look for a light brown with a silver glitter/shimmer mix.
Makeup Brushes -Unlisted Brand - Posh - Domed Eye Shadow Brush
mmhilla 6/18/2010 10:44:00 AM
I just bought another one of these brushes, I already have 2. They are great for all over eye shadow, as previously posted, and as well as blending entire eye once contouring with other shadows has been done. All of the 3 I own are soft and hold up well to washing. I have yet to experience any shedding or rough fibers and I have made purchases sporadictly, so most likely from different manufacturing lots.
On me this color is a pink/lavander shade. I do not get any brown, I also notice that if applied with a patting motion the purple dominates. Once you blend in the color, the pink dominates. just an observation. I do use primer, as without it, loose powder eyeshadows rarely set.
I am a fan of most Armani fragrances, but was a little wary of this one, as I was out to buy the other scent with the white and red writing. The scent is very clean, and not as overpowering as some Armani scents. It can be if applied too liberally. I like its freshness, and can see where this would be approriate for any situation and particularly in the heat of the summer. It is just not special enough for me to repurchase.
LOVE this wash, its very acceptable in the scent department. Although I have always loved osmanthus (apricot), my husband claims he does not. Yet he like this body wash. It lathers well, smells divine, is inexpensive and does not leave my skin tight or jerky after leaving the shower or tub.
I did not care for this product. I didn't have a problem with the scent, although I would have preferred it was unscented. I couldn't stand the way it made my face feel. It felt smooth and silky going on, but once dry my face felt like I had used soap on it and forgot to rinse it off. It was tight, but without any visible tightening effects. I found myself constantly spraying evian mist over my face to loosen it up. So I stopped using this for my face, and finished it up using it as a hand cream.I will not be repurchaing. I gave it a 3 lippie for the natural ingrediants and the reasonable cost.
Lipstick -L'Oreal - Colour Riche Star Secrets Nude in Taffeta
mmhilla 1/10/2010 3:00:00 PM
Love this color. I am cool toned, blonde, and have fairly pigmented lips. If I wear anything with an orange,peach or rusty brown undertone to it I look clownish, or just umatched. Like I didn't care enouph to put forth a pretty effect. This color is a nude/pink that is very similar to a much discontinued Lancome lipstick that i still have and use sparily. It has a grey cool base to it so i can achieve the desired nude lip. I bought 4 as they are discontinuing it.
This is a very cozy delicious fall scent. I have the lotion, candle and soon to buy the body spray. It smells like the outdoors on an autumn afternoon just befor dark, with the cool air, fireplaces burning, and cider mulling with a cinnamon stick, and perhaps a bot of brandy to really warm up the oncoming evening.
I was starting to get confused as others described thier greasepaint as black, and I looked at mine and thought, no way this is deep purple. I love this and the color, it comes with its own sharpener and it glides on effortlessly and stays for ever.
This isn't the best handcream in the world but it works and it doesn't irritate my skin the way some scented handcreams do. I have very chapped dry hands from constant water exposure and use of soaps, detergents and various chemicals. it does not smell like a fart or oregano, or an oregano fart for that matter. It smells like chemicals trying to be unscented. There are other hand creams I use thats why i gave it a four as its not a HG for me.
Scrubs -Bath and Body Works - Need a Margarita? Citrus Body Scrub
mmhilla 9/29/2009 8:37:00 PM
Ok I love this scrub. It leaves a lovely amount of oil so no need for added moisturizer after. My husband hates the smell, I like it, it is very lemony and you can smell it from 2 rooms away. My only complaint is for me there was only enouph in one jar for my whole body, and due to the cost it should be double the amount of scrub.
Love, love, love this. I get the most increadible sheen on my cheeks. I also use sparily on my lids as a primer. Bottle is large so for the price you get a ton of highlighter that doesn't need a lot in order to be effective. the bottle is thick and doesn't allow you to see the amount left, but all I do is shine a flashlight against it and I can tell how full it is.
