I love this product! I am very fair with cool undertones and this looks great for me. In the summer months I just add a bit of Fresh highnoon face glow to warm it up a little and add a little glow. I'm an esthetician and I recommend this to my fair skinned clients all the time. Order it on ebay. Free shipping is worth the wait.
Scrubs -Neutrogena - Energizing Sugar Body Scrub-Fresh Citrus

For all of you who have bought this product and hated it I understand. I don't mind the smell and I do like the silky feel after you rinse. But, I hate all the film it leaves in the tub. I was just going to chuck it when I had a idea. I use this every night before bed, but I use it as a hand scrub. I leave it by the sink and after I have washed my face and all that I scrub my hands while they are dry and then rinse. I put on hand cream and when I wake up in the morning my hands and cuticles are nice and moisturized. I'm an esthetician at a dermatology office so I wash my hands about 30 times a day on average, so my hands are always dry. This works like a charm!
Lips -Cover Girl - Natureluxe Gloss Balm in Grenache

Am I the only one who is disappointed in this product? I was expecting gloss in stick form, what I got was tinted lip balm. No gloss. Great for a lip balm with a little bit of color, but not glossy.

Hands down my favorite hand cream! I'm an esthetician in a dermatology office and on an average day I wash my hands about 20-30 times. I keep this at my desk and next to my sink in my treatment room. Nice texture and absorbs quickly. My hands are my life and this keeps them smooth and hydrated. Everyone should try this product.
Lip Treatments -Neosporin - Lip Health Overnight Renewal Therapy

I'm surprised at how much I like this product. I find this to be a pretty close dupe to MAC's lip conditioner (untinted). I like the texture, scent, and I find it moisturizes well. Great to smooth on while doing your makeup to prep before lipstick. One of my DS faves
I put off buying this brush for too long, and now that I purchased it I have no idea how I lived without it. I wear a smokey eye often and this is the perfect blending brush to create that look. It is the perfect size and the bristles are the right density. I use it to both blend and apply product. This is a must have brush. I am going back to get 2 more.
This is a really nice lip gloss but if you are looking for a lip plumper you should skip this one. This gloss is a nice creamy, sheer light pink with a minty smell and slight tingle. As far as the maximizing effect, I saw none of that. I really like it a quick clear gloss I can quickly swipe on when I am doing a natural look. It is far too expensive for what it is, but I really do like it. I'm sure you can find a similar product for a cheaper price.
Shampoo -ARTec - Color Depositing Shampoo [DISCONTINUED]
rpinto323 3/2/2010 4:15:00 AM
I am a huge fan of both this product and the conditioner. I think it really deposits color and helps me go longer between salon appointments. I use the Cherry Bark color and it great for reds. This doesn't lather the greatest and it is necessary to wash first with a regular color protecting shampoo. I wash with the Cherry Bark second and I try to leave it on for a minute or two. I follow with the matching conditioner and am very happy with the results. As I said in my review for the conditioner, it has a tendency to stain so I use dark towels and wash my hair in the kitchen sink to avoid any staining in my tub. The price I think is reasonable, especially I only use it every 2 days. When I went to go buy it Ulta was having an awesome sale. I bought 2 and got 2 free. I have a feeling they are not going to carry it any more because the stock was small.
This product is a savior for my bright red streaks. Reds are the hardest to maintain, so I knew that I would need something to deposit color. After reading the reviews here I ordered both the shampoo and conditioner. The price is not too bad, but I had been using Pureology before so I don't mind spending a little extra on shampoo. This actually deposits color really well, but I don't think it keeps my hair as hydrated as possible. I actually mix this product with Goldwell Color Care conditioner in Cool Red then leave it on for 15 mins. After I rinse, my color is refreshed and my hair is soft. Be advised that this stuff can really stain so I would advise switching to dark towels. I actually wash my hair in the kitchen sink because it's stainless steel and there is no staining. I would totally recommend this product to anyone trying to get the most out of their haircolor.
I really like everything about this gloss. The consistency is nice and smooth without being too thin or too sticky. The color is a sheer milky pink and looks really nice paired with a smokey eye. I know that a lot of reviewers say that it looks clear on them, but on me that is not the case. I have very pigmented lips and on me this actually lightens them up a little bit. It looks more milky on me then most people. My only gripe is that I find all Juicy Tubes too heavily scented, but the smell goes away rather quickly. Great product.
I don't wear mascara very often, but I picked this up to see what all the fuss is about. I have long lashes already, but was looking for something just to darken them to define the tips. I like the packaging and the applicator. The formula isn't too thick, so you can apply several coats with out getting clumpy spidery lashes. I don't need anything to curl or create a lot of volume so I am very happy with this product. If I run out, I will def. repurchase.
This is my new favorite blush. I usually wear light, blue based pink blushes like Coy Girl which is my other favorite blush. When I saw this in the store I was so intrigued and I ended up breaking down and buying. $25 is a little high for a blush, but the pan is bigger than a standard MAC blush. The size is the same as the pro pan pressed powders. To wear this I just swirl my 187 brush across the whole surface to make sure I get all the colors together. It has a very faint shimmer which just makes you look really fresh. It is in my opinion the best thing in the Spring Collection. After using this, I am tempted to go back and purchase the purple version of this product. Love it.
I really love this product. I have had a really hard time finding a dry shampoo that didn't leave my black hair looking dusty, but this is it. As with all the Bed Head products this is pretty strong in the scent department at first, but thankfully is wears off pretty quickly. I have long, colored hair and I hate to wash it every day. This can stretch my blow out another 2 days usually. To use it I turn my head upside down and aim the spray at the roots and bangs (this is where I get oily). I flip my head up and comb my hair with my fingers and I'm ready to go. This is one of my favorite hair products of all time. I will repurchase again and again.
Highlighters -Revlon - ColorStay Mineral Finishing Powder - Brighten [DISCONTINUED]
rpinto323 11/10/2009 10:43:00 PM
Got it last night, and I LOVE THIS!!! I am a huge hi-lighter fan, and this is awesome. It is very similar to MAC's mineralize skinfinish, but for about half the price. I do have some of the MAC versions and this one is just as good. Like some of the other reviewers mentioned, it goes really nicely with my pale, pink undertoned skin. I had gone into the store to check out Too Faced's Candlelight powder, but found I liked this a lot better. Gives a nice glow without sparkles. I use a hilighter everyday, but I think this should last me a while. I apply it with a 187 on the tops of my cheekbones after applying my blush. I also tried with an eyeshadow brush using it on the brow bone and inner corner of the eyes for a light, no makeup look. Love it.
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - HIP Jelly Balm [DISCONTINUED]
rpinto323 11/10/2009 10:29:00 PM
I bought this after reading a review posted here. I really like this product. For me, this is everything MAC Tendertones aren't. It leaves a nice glossy finish, smooth texture, and no strong scent. That was my biggest problem with the Tendertones. I hope they come out with a larger selection of colors. I will be picking up a few more.
