Love this! The texture and taste is absolutely amazing. I love applying this stuff and feeling it on my lips! It's not sticky at all, and seems quite different from other glosses. The color is a beautiful pale nude, and I wear it everyday.
Pressed Powders -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Medium Dark

This is my favorite of all my makeup products. I loveeeeee this! I have pretty fair skin, and tried to find a bronzer-type powder to use on my face and just add a natural touch of warmth. Bronzers were always too orange, sparkly, and garish to me. This is simply perfect! It adds a very very natural warm color to my face. I use this on my bare face, and instantly look refreshed. I sometimes swipe this over the Mineralize 'light flush' powder for more of a glow. Also, this doesn't break out my hypersensitive skin, plus it seems to last most of the day (even without anything under it). I'm in love!
I really don't like this as an eyeliner. It's a nice color (great for blue eyes) but the application is the problem. The formula can't be applied smoothly enough. My Sue Devitt Tanzania pencil eclipses this by miles. However, I tried this today as a lip liner. Strangely enough, it works! And so much better than the eyeliner! It makes a really interesting lip color....almost perfect covered with gloss!
I am surprised with this hair color! It was the easiest thing I've ever done. On a whim, I stopped by the drugstore on my way back from work....went home, put this stuff in my hair, and 10 minutes later.... (ok, more with mixing, applying, etc.) voila! I have very long and thick hair. I just wanted a color to even out my darker roots and highlights. So, I bought the dark blonde shade. I did what I usually do if I color my hair at home: I mixed the dye as directed, then added enough shampoo to fill the applicator bottle and dilute it a bit. This was certainly enough for all my hair (and made it easier to apply/rinse out). It really worked...and, altogether, this was much less dramatic than my last $300 salon job. I'm impressed.
Treatments (Eye) -Burt's Bees - Repair Serum with Attar of Rose

This is my secret. I use this for everything and adore it. I have hypersensitive skin that will break out to anything so I cannot use any product/makeup on my face. The only thing I do is use a mist of water spray and then this oil on my cheeks. It sinks in and leaves my face dewy/glowy all day. It does not break me out at all or clog my pores (which seemed counterintuitive). It also seems to protect my face from the elements during the day and thus keeps redness to a minimum. I've been using this for a couple of years and whether as an eye treatment or moisturizer, it is amazing!
Lip Gloss -TheBalm - Plump Your Pucker in Cocoa my Coconut

In my opinion, this is THE perfect gloss. Period. The smell is unbelievable. First chocolate and then coconut. And, you also get a wonderful tingle. The color is a light nude. I already have big lips, but I feel like angelina when I put this stuff on. I don't know but this is my favorite lip product. The search is over!! Perfect.
Lip Gloss -Sally Hansen - Diamond Lip Treatment in Always Ascher

All in all, a great product. This is now one of my two favorite lip products, out of the tons that I own. The gloss is perfect. It has a subtle, vanilla-y scent and it's thick but not sticky or too shiny. The color is fabulous; it's a nice berry stain that is buildable and lasts a decent amount of time. The packaging is great- a slender tube with a brush applicator. This is THE gloss I turn to when I want to add color to my lips and get away from the usual nude look. And the price is amazing! You won't be disappointed. I can't believe how much I love this gloss!
This is the perfect cleanser for my hypersensitive skin; skin gets cleaner and has less blackheads than with Cetaphil. After simplifying my skin care regimen to just this and Avon micro-exfoliant, my usually irritated face has never looked better.
