Brows -Tarte - Amazonian Clay Waterproof Brow Mousse & Brow Brush

Nothing works perfect for me because of an illness I really only have about 1/2 inch of my original brow. My skin has become so hairless and rather silky there is nothing for makeup to adhere to. This so far has done the best and I have some eyebrow still there when I get home after a long day.
Maybe it is just me but for the price I could get several drug store brands with the same results. Flakey
I returned a different PF powder that was too glittery. I only wanted a light finishing powder and this works perfectly. I also love that I get an extra dose of SPF. I use a very light foundation with this over and I cannot even see it, yet, my skin actually does look somewhat airbrushed-really doesn't look like I am wearing anything. It seems to be of high quality and I am truly happy with it!
Loved the way it felt. Loved the way it looked INDOORS-went outside (live in sunny California), and saw plenty of glitter/sparkle. So much so, that I exchanged it for their new Air Brushed Pressed Mineral Powder. Don't get the same cool feeling, but I do get sunscreen and I nice flattering glow.
This is one of the few lip products that I have ever repurchased. I absolutely love it and have loved it for several years now. The makeup artist in the store used a lip liner (which I don't usually use), lipstick and then this gloss. It lasted me for a very long time but I still had to have more! A great pink for redheads-due to the gold shimmer.
Terrible coverage for me. No matter how I do it-I streak. I exfoiliate, moisturize-the whole nine yards...Will not buy again.
I had to wait because the Black Ruby for green eyes was always out of stock. When I finally did get it, it was only $5 or actually the sale was 2 for $10. I love it! It is subtle but I can definitely see the difference, especially when I wear a coordinating eye liner-kind of Aubergine color. Will definitely repurchase.

I don't quite understand the big deal about the new advertised "Clinical Strength and other versions that are supposed to be stronger than the average ones that have been available. This one has the same ingredients and has been available for quite some time. I think they need to advertise that!

To me this is a splurge item-even though it is not really expensive,. I find it to be extremely moisturizing, especially after a shower or a bath. The smell is such a light natural product.
DId not work any better than other versions of the same type.
Skincare - Face -Avon - Avon Anew Ultimate Gold Emulsion Night Treatment

I was hesitant on this product because it just didn't seem like it would make a serious difference on me-I was wrong. I don't really have trouble with wrinkles but more of my skin is starting to "droop" unfortuntately-which is much harder to treat without getting any "procedures" done. So when the ad says how much the moisture in your skin will increase-I didn't expect it to really help. My skin is definitely more moist and it actually looks a little lifted from it. It has been 3 weeks so I am waiting to see it in a few more.
Self Tanners -Nivea - Sun-Kissed Beautiful Legs (shave minimizing)

Works great for me as a self tanner and it was very inexpensive at Ulta. (I did have a coupon as well). I have used several differnt products that promise to minimize shaving and I have not noticed any change in that area from any of the products. Gives a nice even gradual tan. I do take care to moisturize feet extra before and/or after.
Not the quality or color payoff that I have come to expect from this line of cosmetics. Runny, pale and pretty much invisible to the eye. I tried using it on the lips or eyes to get some sort of use out of it but no luck there.

Great inexpensive product that works and doesn't feel like it it is harming your eyelashes.
I loved this mascara. Initially-and I mean with just the first use I was not sure. By the second time, I loved it! I bought one of the Las Blast Luxe (has a bit of color with the black) and my green eyes looked even greener. I wish I had not just purchased several other mascaras of other brands-cuz I am sold on this one!
