I don't need to describe this again as it had been described well by other reviewers. I reallllly like it...yes, even for summer! The ONLY thing I would change would be for it to be a tad more shimmery flecks...They show up in the sun mainly...love it!
A deep, creamy, smooth, berry red! I consider it to be a neutral! It goes on like a dream and wears well. A beautiful, classy, non garish color!
I love this beautiful shimmery pink! I'm not normally a pink person for eyes..but this is like a whitish pinkish color that is gorgeous! Looks elegant and classy to me even though it's shimmery. Stays on great and well pigmented....LOVE IT!
Have it in "high dive" and it's a great color. I like the fact that it's not too dark. It's the mid range bronzer. It goes on silky and somehow makes my skin look so pretty and smooth! I ordered my first one from QVC..just ordered another from ebay. I may get the lighter color for fall and winter. such a believable color in a great powder! I do use a light hand so not to look overly "bronzed." I use on my face, neck and decollete, and sometimes shoulders. It's my favorite bronzer so far! It IS a little pricey and I am not personally overly impressed with the case, but what's inside is what counts!
Very good mascara. i usually only use Lancome definicils, BUT, tried this and I really, really like it! It really does lengthen my lashes and separate them. I've been asked if I'm wearing false lashes when wearing this. This and Lancome's definicils are my two faves!
WOW! I use to use a whitening kit from my dentist which included custom made trays for me. I don't like the trays....Then I found these! Wow! 30 min a day and 10 days later my teeth are WHITE again! I am seriously impressed that I can go to Walgreens or Walmart and get this product and it REALLY whitens my teeth. I really notice a huge difference! Yes, I had sensitivity and my teeth hurt some but I use sensitive toothpaste and it HELPS tremendously...It's manageable. And for a pretty, bright smile I'll suffer a bit. But truly, use aquafresh sensitive toothpaste and you'll be fine! LOVE THIS product!
Great polish! I like the regular Revlon polishes but this takes the cake! It does stay on! I have "French Roast" and love it! It wears like iron! The only thing is it's kinda thick going on and I'm not crazy about the brush...but the formula itself is fab! I have it in 3 colors and love them all...I use my Sally Hansen base and top coats with this..Didn't buy the one that was placed with it at the store. Works great! Hope they come out with even more colors!
Foundations -Tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full-Coverage Foundation SPF 15

I'd probably buy this again, but not sure. I usually use Estee Lauder Double Wear or Double Matte. I like those both a lot because they have excellent coverage. This, I'd say, has light to mediumish coverage. It works well on my cheeks but I still use the EL on my nose and chin as I have redness there that the Tarte doesn't cover. My bf could tell a difference when I used this and said the EL looked better...Yes, he notices things like that...lol. I don't use the brush that came with it because it's sooo big and overpowers my face. I ordered a brush that's comparable in feel and quality from Sephora. Their brush is not near as big and works much better for me. I wear the medium and it's a good match. If I get any color at all though it will be too light. I will probably go back to EL Double Wear but may try this again in the summer when I want a little less coverage. It's not bad, just not my HG. EDIT: I have worn this makeup a few more times and it is BEAUTIFUL at FIRST..then it turns orange and VERY oily on me. EACH and EVERY time...I hate that because it is so pretty and glowy at first only to become orange and oily...Sigh...I am quite oily but have NEVER had a foundation get this oily and orange on me EVER!
Bronzers -Tarte - Matte Waterproof Mineral Powder Bronzer

Love it! I like this to give my skin a warm glow. I don't even think people would realize I'm using a bronzer, which is EXACTLY what I want. I want my skin to just look sunkissed and this does that! It's perfect for winter! I use a big, fluffy brush to apply it all over my face and neck and decollete. In the summer when I want a little more color I may try the darker bronzer from Tarte...hotel heiress. I don't think it's too expensive because I believe it will last a very long time. Love it!
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Dream Angels Forever Perfume Eau de Parfum

I love this! And my boyfriend, who is picky, loves it as well. It is feminine and warm. I DO smell the blackberry in this scent, with a hint of vanilla. Very sexy but not overtly so and not overpowering. I am surprised at how well this lasts on me too. I am def going to repurchase! Love this and Sensuous from Estee Lauder!
Very pretty charcoal, shimmery , glowy color. It's not a true black and I'm glad. It's softer than black which is more flattering on the hands. I found this at Kroger just recently and was mesmerized. I would purchase again.
Blush -Tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed Tarte Blush

I was afraid this blush might be too nude for me, but it was gorgeous! Sort of a rosey nude...I love that it is natural but still imparts a pretty color to my cheeks. I agree that it is long lasting. Definitely use a lighter hand with this blush. Once you figure it out though...you will love it!
Liquid -Estee Lauder - Maximum Coverage Foundation
sherryba 11/8/2011 11:25:00 PM
I like this foundation as a concealer and for spot coverage. I use Estee Lauder Double Wear and it is my primary foundation. However I like this to cover red areas. I have very oily skin and this would not be a good foundation for all over my face. I notice that during the day it settles into the little line on my chin as well as around my nose. So, again, although I do like it as a concealer, I do not use it as an all over foundation. Oh, and VERY little goes a LONG way!
This is a very pretty and sophisticated reddish burgundy. I am not much into reds because they usually look too over the top and garish for tips but this is gorgeous. It is a creme that goes on beautifully. Not streaky at all, as some of Essie's polishes can be. This is the perfect fall/winter color and looks great whether you dress yourself up or down. So far is wearing well too! I am most impressed with the color, shine and wear of this polish. Will def repurchase!
Have this on my nails at the moment. It took me a while to determine if I wanted to purchase it, BUT, I really do like it. I painted on 3 coats. It looks darker on my nails than it does in the bottle, which I'm happy about. Definitely has a plum base...some said grape jelly. I do agree. Not a cheap purple cast. I think it's classy and elegant. Like that it's not almost black. I didn't want the red undertone/base and this doesn't have it. I have way too many polishes that have that red undertone. It's a little streaky but I like the color so I don't mind spending a little more time getting it right. Wears well too. BTW, with 3 coats it is a lot darker on than what the pic at the top of this page is showing. If I had seen that picture before purchasing I would have never bought the polish. It's waay darker than that. And, much prettier!
