This is a miracle product for my poor, over-plucked, gappy brows! It has a mascara-type brush, and the product is loaded with fibers that do a great job of filling in and thickening my brows. It looks so natural, unlike the powder I had been using, which ended up mostly on my skin. The brow tint stays on the hairs. One thing-I did have to wipe the wand off a little the first few times I used it. The Taming Gel on the other end of the tube is nice, too...holds my brows in place all day. Absolutely worth $21...I will definitely repurchase!
Powder -Unlisted Brand - J.Lynne Mineral Foundation

I liked the "idea" of minerals, but the 1st one I tried made me even oilier than I already am (even with a primer). Then I found J.Lynne...amazing stuff! It holds up beautifully even in the hot, humid South. I used to touch up w/powder 5-6 times a day to dim the shine, now it's 2 times a day at *most*! Some days I don't touch up at all. Jess has a very good selection of colors, and her customer service is outstanding. Another poster mentioned the Mineral Glows--I completely agree! They are so beautiful, w/o being too sparkly for my 50 y/o skin. I will definitely re-purchase, over and over again!
Lips -Cat Cosmetics - Kitten Impossible lipstick-in Kittenish

The ONLY pink lipstick I've ever been able to wear! Like all of Cat's lipsticks, great packaging, nice texture, lasts well. Will buy again.
I LOVE THIS! It's fun to mix the colors or layer them over lipsticks. Great packaging, too! Cat's glosses are fabulous...long-lasting, nice texture, pleasant smell, no noticable taste. I have them all!
I got the smoker brush along w/the Smolder Set in this month's Monthly Meow...I already had the mini, now that's in my purse. If you've never used a smoker brush, you've just gotta try Cat's!!! Full-size or mini they add that little bit of ka-pow to the outer corners of your eyes.
Got these in the Lip Gloss Wheel along w/Murphy, Roar & Nova. I love them all!!! Lots of fun to mix, and also to layer over other lippies that don't look quite right. I'm a Cataholic for life!!!
Got this as a refill for my Six Appeal...very pretty, sheer color. Just as the co. description says: Like a little kid's lips after eating cherries. The sheerest of Cat's glosses. Great by itself or layered.
Beautiful reddish-brown color! Looks great by itself or layered w/other colors. I find it to be longer lasting when layered, tho it's fine on its own. Still had color after eating! Easy to apply w/brush or finger.
Oh, oh, oh! So pretty, by itself or layered over lipsticks. Even after eating I still have color on my lips with this (and others of Cat's glosses).
The most beautiful purple shadow ever! Like all of Cat's colors, highly pigmented so a little goes a long way. Color stays true all day long...use in the crease,or as a liner.
Gorgeous pale shimmer for an all-over wash. Looks very shimmery in package, very subtle when applied. Go for it!

Beautiful, natural look! Pale shimmer on one side, slightly darker matte on the other. Perfect when you don't want to look "made up", could also dial it up a few notches w/darker color in the crease & darker eyeliner for evening. Cat's eyeshadows rock!!!
Cleansers -Olay - Total Effects Age Defying Wet Cleansing Cloths

These are great for when you feel too lazy to stand over the sink and rinse, rinse, rinse! They take off every scrap of makeup and leave my face soft & smooth. Follow up w/Olay Regenerist Serum. Packaging could be better, if you don't push the air out and close the flap tight, they dry out a little. Would prefer a dispenser type hard plastic box--think baby wipes! Will (and have) repurchased.
Cleansers -Olay - Age Defying Daily Renewal Cleanser

My mornings belong to Mary Kay, but my nights belong to OLAY! I bought this to use at night bc I just can't rinse MK off unless I'm in the shower. The Olay removes all my makeup, and rinses easier (I use a washcloth to rinse). I like the pump bottle too, wish MK would do that w/their Timewise cleanser. Leaves my skin nice and smooth...follow up w/Olay Regenerist Serum. I'm 49 and my skin has never looked better!
Foundations -Max Factor - MAX FACTOR LASTING PERFORMANCE

This is a great everyday foundation (Cat Cosmetics Skin Double is for when I really want to "polish up"). Lasts thru the workday w/minimal touch-up on my normal w/oily t-zone skin. Only need a little bit for medium coverage. I blend it in with Cat Cosmetics WonderPuff for a nice finish. The packaging is great--a nice, flat squeeze tube. I am a light/med w/yellow undertones and found a perfect match in True Beige. I've used this for 2-3 years and will definitely repurchase.
