Treatments -Estee Lauder - Advanced Night Repair (Serum)

I received this as a GWP. Normally, I get a few pimples every couple of weeks. However, for the past few months, my face has been a mess (pimples, rough texture, flaky, dry). I tried everything to calm my skin and reduce the pimples (PCA, Dermalogica, Neutrogena, Clean & Clear). I've read reviews in the past that ANR has helped people with breakouts and just calming the skin. I didn't believe it until I tried it. I've been using this and the Hydrationist creme moisturizer (combo/normal skin) for the past two days and my skin feels so smooth. All the bumps are gone. I still have a few flakes here and there. I kept rubbing my face because I couldn't believe that my pimples were gone without salicyclic acid or benzoyl peroxide use. If you don't want to spend the money for this, go to a counter and ask for a sample. You really don't need to use much. Some people don't use a moisturizer over this. I did because my skin felt so dry.
Great purple/pink nail polish. Perfect for summer.
I love this color. It's a pretty pink nude color. I have a bit of yellow in my skin tone but the color still looks great.
I bought this based upon good reviews from makeupalley and other websites. This used the express tan kit. It comes with towelettes and a 2 oz express tan mist. I used one towelette from head to toe. Then sprayed the mist on the towelette and used that again head to toe. I did that two days straight and waited 24 hrs in between to shower. I have a great tan now. I'm not sure how long the tan will last. I'll update that on later. Also, I made sure I moisurized my hands, elbows, knees, and feet with lotion before rubbing it lightly with the towelette. That's to prevent weird orange spotting around those areas.
I still miss the old shiseido mascara base.There was nothing wrong with the old formula so I have no idea why they changed it.The new formula does hold a curl well but does not thicken like the old formula. I've tried other primers but they never held a curl.I have no choice but to stick with this one for now.
i love cashmere mist! i love powdery scents and this is so easy on the nose. for those with allergies, try this out. it's not overpowering and for me, it stays on for 5-6 hrs. i use this along with the deodorant. another great product. the only thing i dislike about this product is the actual perfume bottle. it's not very pretty.

I love this kit! The best kit out there. Not very expensive.I use this x2 per week in conjunction with l'occitane apple velvet moisturizer. it does a great job of exfoliating my face and I have sensitive combo skin.
Moisturizers -L'Occitane - Almond Apple Velvet Concentrate

I'm finding as I get older,my combination skin is getting drier in the fall/winter time. I tried this b/c I desperately needed light moisture for my skin.I tried the apple velvet cleanser before and wasn't impressed.however,I love the scent of this line. So I decided to take a chance with this moisturizer. I use this every night and olay's microdermabrasion scrub x2/wk.My skin has never looked better.I don't even use acne products every night like I used to.My face feels so soft and clear. I hope they never discontine this product.btw,I'm in my early 30's and this is plenty of moisture for my face.
Treatments (Eye) -Promaxyl - Eyelash Renewal serum Rapidlash

I have short thin lashes. I was using L'oreal's lash boosting serum for about 3 months and that did help lengthen my lashes. I decided to give Rapid lash a try because I wanted to see if something else worked better. I've been using this only for one week and my lashes have grown a little longer and they're definitely a little thicker. When I put on mascara, I look like I'm wearing fake eyelashes. This isn't going to be a miracle for everyone. However, this has worked for me and I'm going to keep using this since I'm too scared to try Latisse.
This shade reminds me of frappucino but with a hint of brown.great everyday lipstick
Love this neutral pink/rose color.perfect with darker eye makeup
Pefect neutral lipstick with hint of mauve and brown.
I bought tea rose and other colors from cherry culture for 2.25 each.yes,it is very pigmented.that's why I blot after application.I hate the look of lipgloss and glossy lips so this works for me. This is a slightly bright neutral pink that gives my lips fullness.it also brightens up my face.also note,my lips are naturally dark pink.
Mascara -Shiseido - The Makeup Mascara Base [DISCONTINUED]

I've used this primer over and over again.it is a must before using any mascara.I first curl my lashes,apply this primer ,and then mascara.my lashes look so thick and long.I couldn't live without this product.
I love this lash conditioner!I don't know why people think this is supposed to act as a miracle product.you're only spending $11 for this.for me,this has decreased the amount of lashes that falls out and my lashes are a tad bit longer because of this.my lower lashes are also longer as well.its a great product for the price
