At 62 I think this product is targeted to women my age. I have just finished my first bottle and it lasted 6 weeks using it twice a day. I was mostly interested in eliminating fine lines and it started doing that right from the start. People often comment on how good I look. I notice a more even skintone, tightening, small pore size and overall smoothness. Yes, it is expensive but I ordered during Sephora F & F as well as the VIB discount so I shouldn't have to pay full price for it for awhile.
I love this lipstick. It is creamy and moist going on and has a nice sheen. The color is rosy but not bright or dull...just right for my nw20 complexion. My only complaint would be that it doesn't last long on the lips but since it does seem to stain mine, all I need is a little lip balm to revive them. I will keep buying this color since it seems to brighten my face.
I have been using this for about 2 weeks. Got a deluxe sample from Sephora. I noticed a difference almost immediately but it is targeted for ppl my age. The texture, tone and firmness of my skin continues to improve. Foundation looks better with each passing day. I love that you use it in combination with your favorite skincare items. A bonus since you don't have to buy anything new but the Genifique. It's expensive but I took advantage of VIB sale, ebates, etc. I like the dropper design of the bottle but think you could knock it over if not careful. Will buy again!
This is the best eye makeup remover I have ever used. It easily removes all eye makeup, even waterproof, with the swipe of a cottonball. It is the only product I have used that has truly impressed me. It is similar to Lancome in that it is a dual phase formula that you must shake. The similarity ends there for me as I am not impressed with the performance of Lancome. Release me removed every trace of eye makeup and when I washed my face there were no traces of mascara or liner on my washcloth. Very Impressive. Just wish the bottle had a flip top instead of a screw on top.
I love this blush. For reference I am nw20 with brown highlighted hair and green eys. In the pan this blush looks like a mauvey berry brown to me. Normally I choose cooler colors but this one looks perfect on me. Doesn't seem to matter what eye or lip colors I choose..it just looks like a natural flush on your cheeks...exactly what you want a blush to do. I get compliments on how good I look every time I wear it. In fact, today a woman in a CCO told me my makeup looked wonderful and asked what blush I was wearing. This blush is highly pigmented so use a light hand.
I really did not like this mascara at all and was surprised to read that someone did. This stuff dries almost immediately and gives you no time to work with it. Your lashes become dry and crunchy. It is the worst I have ever used in either high end or low end. Would not repurchase.
Styling Products -Unlisted Brand - Motions Foaming Wrap Lotion

I bought this in the ethnic hair care dept. at Walgreens after reading about it in a magazine. The article contained a list of several secret weapons hairdressers use. I have colored & highlighted med. course hair that frizzes and falls flat in humidity. Where I live, that means bad hair days all summer long. This product is amazing! I shampoo and condition normally, towel dry and add a little Moroccanoil, and 4 or 5 pumps of the Motions lotion. I let my hair air-dry until just damp and blow dry. I get lovely results with a round brush or paddle brush. My style lasts all day (basically a bob) and NEVER gets frizzy. I am so happy to have found this and it is CHEAP! I have tried many others including Living Proof brand and found this to be the best.
This was a surprising find. I generally go right past the L'Oreal lipsticks because I don't care for the smell/taste of them. This is a light to medium shade that is corally pink. Not bright at all on my NW20 complexion. It's creamy and long lasting. Now, if I can just get past the smell.
This is HG material for me. I will not hesitate replacing this when it gets near the end. For reference, I am NW20 in MAC with med. brown highlighted hair and green eyes. The first thing I noticed was how it brightened my complexion...amazingly so! It is a hard color to describe as others have mentioned..is it rosy...peachy? On me it seems to be more rosy with a golden overlay. It has the most gorgeous sheen I have even seen in a lipstick...not frost or glitter but a beautiful golden sheen. I have noticed that, as I get older, I can no longer wear dark lipsticks...this has wonderful color saturation, is not pastel and still looks great. Great mid-tone lipstick.
Blush -Bobbi Brown - Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks in Pink Truffle

I love this. I have the GWP size and normally do not like cream blushes. My complaints are that I haven't found any that blend well or look natural. Well, my search is over! This blush looks completely natural when applied with a skunk brush. I use a MAC 187 for this. It blends beautifully and easily. I will be buying the full size.
I have been using Moroccanoil for 4 weeks. My stylist has been using it on my hair the last two times I went in and I found I could not stop touching my hair. I really don't have many hair issues...thick, slightly coarse hair that is colored and highlighted. I simply hold the bottle on the palm of my hand and tip it over to dispense a nickel sized amount. I massage this into towel dried hair for about 30 seconds. At first it feels like some product in your hair but that soon disappears. I let my hair air dry for about 30 minutes before I blow dry and use a curling iron for touch up. With Moroccanoil your hair drys much faster (air drying or hair dryer) it is smooth as silk with no frizzies. It has great shine and manageability and body. I think this is the most useful product I have ever used. I cannot wait to try this in the humid summer months as that is when my hair gets really frizzy. It also seems that my color is lasting much longer than in the past. It is very expensive but you use very little and you can find it for a better price on the bay. They would be smart to put a reducer cap in the bottle for easier dispensing.
Many others have described the color. I would just like to say that it is a must for green-eyed girls. I pair it with Folie, Brule, Shroom, Blackberry and Yogurt depending on the look I am going for. Nice texture and wear. Makes green eyes pop!
I have been using Fabulous Eye Cream for about 10 months. I love that the tube lets you control the amount you use (very little). It is very moisturizing yet light and sinks right in. I use it in the morning and it doesn't interfere with eye makeup (I also use UDPP). Since using it I have noticed decreased dryness and wrinkling both below the eye and on the eyelid. It contains retinol but probably at a low enough dose as to not cause crepey eyes. I think the price is reasonable as well. It is the best eye cream I have found to date.
Eye Shadow -American Beauty - Luxury For Lids Duo in Afternoon Tea
sahyslop 4/21/2008 4:56:00 PM
This one is a sleeper. I had a 20% off coupon for Kohls and decided to read some reviews before heading out. Glad I did. This shadow duo looks like nothing special...just a nice neutral. Oh, but what it does for my green eyes is truly remarkable..it really makes them stand out. The texture is great and has good pigmentation and lasts all day (I use UDPP). It has some shimmer but it is subtle and more of a glow. It gives the most polished look. I will have to go back and get a back-up of this one.
Liquid -LORAC - Breakthrough Performance Oil Free Anti-aging with sms complex spf 14

I love this foundation! It is medium coverage that lasts all day but feels light as a feather. It looks better and better on the skin as the day goes on. I am NW 15-20 and wear shade #2. At first it looks too light but that goes away as soon as you start blending. It gives me a nice neutral look. Really natural finish. I am 58 and a veteran of trying foundations and I like many of them but this one is far better than any I've tried previously. I like the bottle design,too.
