Moisturizers -Origins - VitaZing SPF 15 Energy-boosting moisturizer with Mangosteen

This is an amazing product. As soon as you put it on, your face glows. I love the subtle tint it provides. It is perfect for someone who desires my skin but better look without a heavy foundation. My skin is very reactive & I have not had any problems. I apply it over my regular moisturizer. This is one beautiful cream! Get a sample, you will be back for the full size! :-)
This one gets five stars all across the board. I had been enjoying my trips to the salon however the visits do add up. In addition, it's always on my colorist terms as far as scheduling. She only works a few days a week and it's gotten tougher to get in since my babies arrival. So, my short search for a dark brown color in a box to match my natural hair led me to Revlon Colorsilk in *Medium Rich Brown* #47. It was on sale 2 for $5! Hello? Can it getter any better? Yes it can. The color came out gorgeous. My hair looks & feels fab! I love the richness of the color & the shine. The $avings are huge! :-)
Blush -Cargo - Blu-ray High Definition Make-up Set

I actually bought the entire Blue_Ray HD set. I love everything in it including the bronzer. I'm NW-15 and was not sure if the bronzer would work but magically it does (go lighthanded though). The quality is fantastic. The blush (peach) is so smooth & blends wonderfully. This blush/highlighter is what I originally wanted but the value you get in the set can't be beat. Four full size/high quality products for under $50. Love it!
It took me two tries to nail the right shade. I'm glad I didn't give up though. BTW, I'm NW15 & Ecru Beige is PERFECT. I'm very impressed with the quality & the price is great. It's a bit thick so I had to use a sponge to apply it. I can't get enough coverage without having a "mask" face. :-( I'm not repurchasing.
Treatments -Clairol - Natural Instincts Shine Happy clear shine treatment

My expectations were high I have to admit. I was told you get results that are very compatible with salon treatment worth hundreds of dollars. Also it had "Best of ALLURE " rec's to back it up. Well, it did absolutely nothing for my hair, zero, zilch. Total waste of $ & time. It comes with a great after-color conditioner but that's about all. I'm Shine Unhappy.
Lip Treatments -Sally Hansen - Lip Conditioner and Plumper

Sally Hansen Lip Blush Plumping Balm is awesome. It transforms from clear to perfect baby pink customized to your lip tone. I really liked & for $7.99 (@CVS) you get a LOT. It also contains a lot great ingredients.
OMG, for someone who is eyelash challenged this is super. Makes the lashes look long & thick. Make sure to apply several coats before it dries.
The coverage is very sheer & way too drying for me. P.S. I stopped using it since my face got very irritated,switched to EM. *updated* I have been using MATTE version this summer (2010) & I love it! This formula doesn't have Bismuth hence happy skin! :-)
