This is a fantastic sheer foundation with SPF and a great squeeze tube package. Since the color is sheer, the shades available would work for nearly any skintone.
Blush -Flirt - Peek-A-Blush Sheer Powder in Dapple Apple
surfgal626 5/8/2005 3:37:00 PM
The quality of this blush is very nice - it's very finely milled and pigmented. Dapple apple is a rosy pink with some nude tones in it that keep it from looking too bright or fake. It has gorgeous shimmer that adds glow to the cheeks. The packaging is quite strange. Normall, I prefer a sleek package without a brush, and this is no exception. The one good thing about this is that the brush isn't so bad that it is totally unusable. Therefore, this might make a nice complete package to touch up with at work.
This is a great lotion, especially for the price. The scent is pleasant and better than vaseline lotion scents I remember from the past. The lotion is smooth and creamy and absorbs quickly, leaving my skin feeling very smooth and hydrated. The moisturizing lasts for hours. I got the 24.5 oz size for $7 at CVS and it comes with a convenient pump. There was also a smaller size squeeze tube (10 oz I think) for $4.
Cleansers -Biore - PORE PERFECT Warming anti-blackhead cream cleanser

The warming feature of this is nice, but I don't feel that it gets my skin very clean. The high salicylic acid content leaves my skin feeling tight and dry.
I really didn't believe this product would deliver what it promised, but I purchased anyway because I needed a good exfoliator after starting a green cream regime. As the foam head is vibrating, I can barely feel the abrasion, but after a rinse, my skin is baby soft. I noticed a glow to my skin within two days of using it. I would definitely recommend to anyone.
I like this product a lot. It is great for tinting light lashes without adding a lot of drama - perfect for blondes or those who prefer a natural look. I like the wand a lot too and its length makes it easy to use.
Fragrances -Stella McCartney - Stella- Eau de Parfum

I got a sample of this froma lovely MUAer. The smell is nice and feminine and a bit mature. I did enjoy sniffing it and it agreed well with my body chemistry, but it just doesn't mesh with my persoanlity, so I would not repurchase.
Conditioner -Beyond The Zone - Noodle Head Curly Hair Conditioner
surfgal626 4/9/2005 12:51:00 PM
I felt this left my hair drier and frizzier than usual and I didn't not like the tropical starburst scent. I gave it a shot for a week, but it didn't do anything for my curly hair.
This does exactly what it promises to and gives a natural glow. I am an LLL and got the one for medium skin and after one application, my pasty white legs are now a creamy fair tone. I didn't get any streaking, but I do have one dark patch on the back of my ankle where there was some dry skin, so do avoid areas like those. The smell isn't pleasant (I personally smells like milk that has begun to go bad) but it is not a very strong smell.
Highlighters -Bobbi Brown - Beige Shimmer Brick Shimmerbrick
surfgal626 4/2/2005 12:57:00 PM
This is a fantastic highlighter or light bronzer. I love using it on top of blush or as eyeshadows. I had tried the pink, which wasn't at all flattering on me, but the beige has the perfect amount of shimmer and pigment.
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - Shimmer wash eyeshadow in Champagne
surfgal626 4/2/2005 12:56:00 PM
This is a fantastic wash shade for my LLL skin and hazel eyes. It has the perfect amount of shimmer and pigment. I love the texture of the shadow too. My only wish is that BB packaging were a little more sleek.
I thought this blush was going to be pretty boring since it is just plain pink, but it is tremendously flattering on me. Although it doesn't seem so in the pan, it is HIGHLY pigmented, so I only need to dip the very tip of my skunk brush (MAC 187) in the pan. I apply right on the apples of my cheeks and it looks fantastic. It's very natural and pretty.
Okay, doing this all in 2 hours is kind of crazy. I did it for 40 minutes on the first day and stopped when I started feeling discomfort. After that I did it for 20 minutes every other day. I really like the results! My teeth are much brighter and whiter. I prefer the tray/gel style to crestwhitestrips. I molded the trays to fit my teeth like the directions say, and this kept the gel in close contact with my teeth. I think this is a great product for a reasonable price
Tinted Moisturizer -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Enhancer SPF 20
surfgal626 4/1/2005 8:15:00 PM
I too thought that this was going to be too dark, but the "ivory to fair" color blended in perfectly on my LLL (neutral) skin. It is more of a light foundation than a moisturizer and feels great on and not mask-like. The pump is great and the sunscreen is a nice bonus.
This is honestly the best mascara ever. It doesn't curl lashes, but it doesn't weigh them down, so already curled lashes won't lose their curl. It lengthens mine lashes like crazy and keeps them seperate without clumps. It doesn't smudge or flake either. This is a definite HG for me.
