I love this concept but I can't use this daily - it dries me out. I normally use it when I want a deep cleanse and right before my own self facial treatment (scrub, mask, etc.). It is very easy to use and very cleansing but it has a tendency to make my skin dry and flaky if I use it consistently.

I adore the texture and how little you actually have to use. It goes it my skin …

Nov/12/2007

I use the Perfecting Water - light with my morning routine (and the heavy at night) and I love this. I am not sure if I will ever be able to go back to toners. What is this stuff, really? Toner/moisturizer/water for hydration...whatever it is it is awesome. It removes impurities and doesn't leave your skin dry or tight and it preps the skin for the next step as well.

I use the …

Another great LM product. I love the mousse thick texture and a little goes a long way. I am fond of items that I don't have to massage into my skin or just sit there on top of the skin and you pray that they sink in - this one sinks right in and really moisturizes for me. I love how it makes my skin look - vibrant, healthy and dewy.

I've never ever worn a moisturizer with SPF in it but I figured at 42 - it was time. I switched to LM in April of this year from CDLM and I love every single product I've tried.

I use this after my morning cleanse. I like the texture of it - it isn't to heavy (cream) nor is it too light (lotion) - it is the right consistency and texture for me. It goes on remarkable …

I just had an epiphany to try green shadows with my medium brown eyes. I really really want CD's green tropic but I am not really an eyeshadow person and I have eight drawers of cosmetics and the majority of them I barely touch - I made myself a promise to toss the old things and use what I have and then...I will negotiate purchasing new things.

I bought the Milani single in …

Over the weekend...a light bulb went off for me. I am 42 and have been dabbling with cosmetics since I was roughly 13 and it just occurred to me to try green eyeshadow. DUH!!!

I have cognac color eyes and consider myself very basic and I am never seen without a neutral palette. It looks on good on me, I am comfortable with it but sometimes I want to have a little fun.

Not much of a variation on this palette. I have the nude on nude palette and quite enjoy the versatility of that one and I am not really sure why I purchased this one...greedy I guess.

The shimmer doesn't really shimmer and they look like mud to me - very flat. Not that I want a shiny eye lid but I would like a bit more umpf!

I saw this in fashion mag somewhere and I needed it. I stalked as it hadn't been released yet. I finally found it and ordered it. It is gorgeous in the tube but standalone on me...it doesn't work. Now what I do like it about it is the color - it is a lovely plummy/figgy (think inside of the fig and the darker skin of a ripe plum) shade with great sparkles - because it is so sheer - …Read more

I love it. It is the perfect color - not to pink. I use it on my lips and my cheeks for a healthy glow/blush. It is convenient and very easy to apply and lasts a long time.

I love the fact that it is compact enough to carry anywhere and is a seriously durable must own cosmetic.

I liken then to benefit's 911 (which I detested) - as the color is universal and it can be …

I love it. I had to buy the darkest shade and when I got it, I was nervous it looked too light (I am a NC45). I tried it and loved it. I am now keenly aware of the fact that 1. I wear shades that are too dark for my skin. 2. I do not blend 3. I do not apply the foundations using the proper tools and 4. I don't take the time to do so.

I wore this to work one day and had a …
