Lipstick - Nuance by Salma Hayek - Plum Mauve

A great color with some shimmer, suitable for most skin types. Goes on smooth, creamy but not greasy, and wears well (about 2 hours or so before reapplying). It's almost like a lipstick version of the great lip pencil shade #666/Brandywine by Wet 'N Wild!

My favorite dark-colored nail polish - the name of shade fits the color very well. It's a medium-dark plum with light shimmery plum highlights. Great for a pedicure as it looks sexy on toenails. I wear this along with Zoya's Sari on my fingernails for that classic light fingernail/dark toenail look.

Great classic neutral pink shade - like this even more than Essie's Mademoiselle. Sari looks great on us ladies with shorter fingers as it elongates them. Love wearing this along with Zoya's Mata Hari on my toenails for a classic light fingernail/dark toenail look.

With a nod to the great review below by AlyHeartsYou, I tried the same shade (105) and the exact same thing happened to me! Talk about a burning sensation! Anyone with sensitive skin should stay the heck away from this product - feel that burning wrath indeed!

Regarding AnnR’s excellent review below, I agree 100%! I was also fortunate enough to obtain some of the original Alexis Vogel Cosmetics back in 2004 and the quality was indeed excellent (except for the brushes, as AnnR also mentioned, but you can always get better brushes elsewhere). In March 2005 Alexis Vogel was no longer associated with the people who were running AVC because she did not …Read more

I agree 100% with the previous two reviews below – this Senna lip lacquer shade (Paradise) is a lovely golden peachy-pink with a very nice vanilla scent! It’s long wearing but doesn’t feel at all sticky! This is a great lip gloss to wear over lip pencil, lipstick, or just by it’s pretty little self! Senna is an outstanding line and if you would like to see the entire line check their website …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Exact Mascara

I happened to purchase this mascara since it is supposed to be identical to Max Factor’s Lash Perfection mascara, which is not available where I live. Am I glad I purchased this new Cover Girl mascara! It’s even cheaper than the Max Factor version and has the same rubber-type brush applicator. This goes on evenly and makes my lashes long, thick and with no clumps - and it wears very well! I …Read more

Great pink-brown shade and so versatile! Excellent consistency as well - my favorite combo is outlining and filling in my lips with "Bamboo" then topping with Sally Hansen Diamond Lip Treatment Lip Gloss in "Champagne Toast" (a lovely pink-plum-mauve with silvery shimmer). Very highly recommended!

The Jordana lip liner I purchased is the Easyliner for Lips in "Tawny". Purchassed this at Walgreen's for only a dollar and change - this is a great retractable lip pencil and just as good as the department store brands. This shade is really more like a warm pink-mauve - a very versatile shade. My favorite combo is lining and filling in my lips with "Tawny" then …Read more

Beautiful shade (pink-plum-mauve with golden shimmer). Creamy consistency, nice coconut-almond scent and a brush applicator, too! Department store quality at a drugstore price (I get mine at Walgreen's or Duane Reade). All the shades in this line are great but my two favorite shades are this one along with "Champagne Toast". "Royal Romance" is great over Jordana Easyliner …Read more
