Beautiful color, creamy consistancy and lasts all day.Looks great with my green blue eyes.
Mascara -NYX - Provocateur Mascara - Boudoir Collection

I like this mascara because it has two wand compartments and you can choose to use one or the other wand (it unscrews for the second brush). I prefer the top wand as it gives a more natural look. I dosen't clump or flake or smear.The second wand gives a more mascared look and it still does not clump. I will be buying this again, I got this at Ulta.And its cheap.
Sunscreen -Shiseido - Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen AA SPF 50+ PA+++
sugarandspice101 5/6/2012 8:34:00 PM
I recently bought this sunscreen after trying many sunscreens which made my skin greasy or shiny. My skin tends to be normal but all SS left me with a thick sheen on my face. Enter Anessa Perfect AA SPF 50, which is your typical runny Japanese SS but it soaks in quickly and doen't leave a film on the skin,My face just feels and looks normal.From the packaging it contains zinc oxide and titanium dioxide for protection.If you need alot of moisturizung this probably not the sunscreen for you.I have also used Peter Thomas Roth's Uber dry SS but I like the Anessa better but PTR was available in many places( Macy's, Ulta,) unlike the Anessa which I ordered from Beautykat.com., I have also tried Clarins UV Plus SPF 40 which I liked very well but a little greasy on me and I have used Neutrogena Ultra Sheer liquid SPF 55, ans it stung around my eyes but the Anessa has not caused any break outs or stinging on my face. I am loving this!
I love this perfume.It smells of orange flowers and vanilla. It ia very feminine and beautiful.This perfume feels warm,rich and delicious.This is a very sexy fragrance that stays on the skin for quit a while. I bought my last bottle on ebay but I think you can still get this thru Avon.
I love this stuff.It is cheap,it easily takes off eye makeup and doesnt irritate the skin around the eyes.I moisten a cotton ball with a little water and wipe off my makeup.I dont know how well it would work for waterproof makeup but for regular mascara and eyeliner it's great.This is also reccomended for people with sensitive skin.It comes in a big tub container and is about 11-12.00.
Liquid -Clinique - Redness Solutions Makeup SPF 15 with Probiotic Technology

I have been using this for a couple of weeks and I am loving this foundation.I find this makeup covers the redness around my nose and chin but looks amazingly natural .It seems to meld into the skin making my face more radiant but not greasy or matte, more of a satin finish.I am fair NC 20 and found Alabaster matches my skin very well.My face is normal, not really oily or dry and dont get breakouts.I have been using Sally Hansen's Carmindy Your skin foundation which I also love but the Redness Solutions foundation seems to make my 57 year old face GLOW.I am really thrilled to have found this!.The bottle is well designed and the 24.00 $ was in my price range.I highly reccommend and I think this may be Holy Grail.
I bought this because Paula Begoun loved this lotion but I did not.I used this and found it not moisturizing enough for my dry,fragile,eczema prone skin.This product is not greasy but I prefer lotions that are as it seems to keep the moisture in my skin longer.It did not irritate or break me out at all and it had no obvious scent,but I didnt love it and wont repurchase.
Cleansers -Aveeno - Ultra-Calming Foaming Cleanser

This foaming cleanser is gentle on my normal,slightly sensitive skin and seems to clean it well without stripping the moisture.It doesnt irritate or break out my face.What I dont like is the funky smell which smells to me like stinky feet.Yuck....I like the foaming dispencer but half way thru the bottle the top is getting stuck.I wont be repurchasing.
Moisturizers -Vaseline - Deep Moisture Creamy Formula
sugarandspice101 3/7/2010 8:50:00 PM
I always have a tube of this in my car,purse,desk ect.This protects like vaseline but is creamier and more moisturizing.This is Holy Grail status for me.My dry,fragile,excema prone hands love this stuff.
I am really liking this mascara.I wipe off the brush with a tissue and use whats left on the wand to jiggle thru my lashes.It gives a defined but natural look.I like the big,dense brush it seems to be able to get the mascara into the lashes.This didnt clump or smuge or flake for me.I would repurshase and I paid about 3.00 as it was a BOGO at CVS.
Lotions/ Creams -Aveeno - Aveeno Diaper Rash Cream
sugarandspice101 11/21/2009 6:46:00 PM
I use this thick paste -like cream on the 'hot spots' from eczema. This creates a thick barrier so irritants cant flare up my skin.I find it soothing,nuetral and smells nice.A keeper....Iam sure it would be great on a babies bottom.
I love this body wash this is the orignal wash with fragrance in the blue bottle.I love the oaty smell and the way it leaves my sensitive,dry eczema prone skin feeing soft and healthy.It cleans well and does not strip my skin.This is definatly a winner for people with dry, easliy irritated skin. I alternate this with Eucerin's calming body wash oil,both are great.Try this.
Gels/Soaps -Eucerin - Calming Body Wash Daily Shower Oil
sugarandspice101 11/21/2009 6:11:00 PM
I have been using this body wash for the last four months and it has really helped heal my dry,itchy eczema prone skin.Before this I used Dove beauty bar which is drying.Body washes generally are more moisturizing than bar soap.I found the Eucerin body wash to be athin and waterybut it will clean just fine.The smell is a little odd, it kinda bothered me at first,but I got used to it after a week or so.The smell is most likely from the castor and soybean oils,they do however,leave my skin well moisturized and soft but not greasy.This makes my barrier damaged skin much more healthy and normal.For people with sensitive or eczema damaged skin try this body wash.I have found it a godsend.
I have this in Dark Blonde which is kinda a dark golden taupe.The narrow end works well to define brows,it can give a natural look.The price is cheap.I use this with Ananatasia's brow powder and the two together look great.( the brow powder is wonderful also).
Liquid -Revlon - SPA Age Defying Foundation [DISCONTINUED]
sugarandspice101 3/3/2009 10:44:00 PM
I am liking this makeup.Having read the reviews I ran out and bought 002 which was the lightest color I found.My coloring is like a MAC w-20-25 and the color in the bottle looked too dark,so I had some second thoughts about buying it-but I did.Very nice. The color lightened up and spread well.It did not make any dry spots look flaky,it was not greasy and it seemed to stay on all day.I applied it to my face with the brush that came with it and then used a seperate foundation brush to smooth it on.I would say the coverage is medium but could be made thinner or heavier.It covered the reddness around my nose,yet still looked natural. Iam pleased with this makeup.Good job Revlon!
