I love this palette - I describe my look as "polished casual" and I think the colors in this selection fit the bill. The hues are warmer pinks, grays and peaches, and I like the versatility of the eye colors as they give me a subtle smoky look within minutes. The cheek colors are great neutrals (I blend them and then apply to apples) as are the lip colors, which are a punchier …Read more

Feb/12/2011

When I saw this product featured in Lucky Magazine, I got the impression this was going to be a light hydrating moisturizer. However, I tried it out at a nearby Kiehl's freestanding store and found it to be thick, with a texture like school paste. It's very dense and has a smell to it that is slightly floral, slightly cucumber but also a little medicinal. I applied it to my face and …Read more

Lovely, sparkling red from Laura Mercier. Great, warm yet true color on my lips, and fantastic for a more formal sheer that wears beautifully. Looks great with my NC35, golden-toned skin color.

Found this while shopping in Thailand - a lovely, cosmetically-elegant face cream with Tinosorb S. It is tinted light yellow, and has a faint flowery fragarance, although it states on the bottle that the sunscreen is fragrance- and colorant-free. I have somewhat sensitive skin, especially after I go running, and I have been able to use this cream under my makeup daily without reactions. It …Read more

Picked this up at my local Marshalls for $4.99, so I can't comment on how much it is at full price. But given that my hair is so finicky, and this stuff works so well, I'd probably pay twice as much for it again. As described in other reviews, it comes solid in a jar, you scoop some out and emulsify it in your hands, then apply. It helps a lot with frizzy hair, without weighing it …Read more

What's not to like about this extremely portable, very wearable gloss stick? Sure, it's extremely sheer, wears quickly and it costs $15, but it goes on glossy, it's the perfect color for almost everyone's lips and it tastes subtly like creamsicles. I actually like it. Picked it up at Sephora.com/

Treatments (Face) - Erno Laszlo - Timeless Skin Age Preventative Treatment

Feb/27/2005

Timeless Skin is an extra product that is meant to compliment the Laszlo regime tailored for your skin (FYI, I'm slightly dry, and am supposed to use the 11:30 a.m. products). It's a vitamin C, marine and yeast-extract treatment that you apply before your moisturizer, and it's meant to erase the effects of pollution and time from your skin. Going on, it's very slippery …Read more
