I have thick, coarse, color-treated hair (base color, low lights and high lights.)

After years of using the Kerastase Chroma line of products for color treated hair: shampoo, (Bain Chroma Riche) serum, (Chroma Riche Essence Emolliente) heat styling cream (Chroma Thermique) and conditioner/masque (Chroma Reflect) I have to say, I may very well have found my holy grail …

Treatments - Caswell-Massey - Carmichael's Imperial Cuticle Cream

Jun/04/2012

Carmichael's Cuticle Cream is a fantastic product. It's a simple formulation--just beeswax, petrolatum and fragrance--but it's incredibly effective and one jar lasts forever. I put it on before I go to sleep and wake up looking like I've had a manicure. The secret is the beeswax in the formula; it creates more of a barrier than creams that contain only oil, and this gives your …Read more

I have hazel eyes and love (and buy) far too many shades of green shadow--many of which I hardly ever wear. I acquire and gloat over my green shadows, but for every day wear, I tend to grab the beiges and brown neutral shades.

Lancome's Designer is the exception. It's a gorgeous, dark, shimmery, charcoaled shade of green. It reminds me of Jane's Twilight Zone, except …

Jul/06/2010

I've found my summer nail Holy Grail!

I love Sally Hansen Hard As Nails as a base and top coat, so I branched out and tried some of the colored polishes. I'm wearing two coats and from a distance, my nails are a pale, shimmery, pearly pink; close up you can see tons of fine silver microglitter.

Applying is a snap. The brush length and shape are great, and the …

Hair Color - Clairol - Nice 'n Easy - Root Touch Up

Mar/25/2009

I bought this because I have salon-colored hair (permanent medium brown base with highlights, lowlights, and a glaze for shine.) I usually hit the salon every five weeks, (and spend $100 for my color) but was heading out for spring break and couldn't manage to get in. I had to choose between spending my vacation with 1/2 inch of gray roots or trying this. I got a golden brown shade, left it …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - L'Oreal Paris - Age Perfect Pro-Calcium Radiance Perfector Sheer Tint Moisturizer SPF 12

I picked this up yesterday because it was $15.99 at CVS with $15.99 in ExtraBucks rewards, so it was essentially free.

From what the box said, I expected a tinted moisturizer with lots of the stuff that middle-aged ladies like: age diffusers, lots of hydration, dewy finish. Something like my Estee Lauder DayWear Plus tinted moisturizer.

FAIL.

It's not …

Jul/24/2002

Wow! A less-pink, cheaper replacement for YSL's Touche Eclat! What a find! Like Touche Eclat, this stuff doesn't do a heavy duty job of concealing, but it lightens shadows and red areas very well. I use this around my eyes and at the corners or my nose. The packaging isn't as glamorous as the YSL product, but c'mon, this is concealor; you're not about to pull it out and …Read more

Jul/24/2002

I have this in Blonde and I love it. It's small and easy to carry in your purse. The brow color is very realistic on my medium brown brows. They say to go a shade lighter for filling in, and the Revlon is perfect shade for me. I use a bit of wax on the brush, then run it over the color and brush it on.The wax helps hold a nice line and persuades some of my unruly hairs to clean up their …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Sephora Collection - Retractable lip brush

Jul/24/2002

This is a great brush! I actually have a couple of them. It has a great tapered shape, not ridiculously small, but providing excellent control. When it's retracted, it's tiny, but when it's opened, it's a nice pencil-length, so it's easy to work with. And you can't beat the price! I like it better than Sonia Kachuk's. The SK brush comes completely apart, and the …Read more

Jul/24/2002

I've been using this product for years--I hoarded some until the popularity of Origins Pinch Your Cheeks prompted Bonne Bell to make their gel blush availabe on their web site. This is a wonderful product--the color blends on smoothly and stays true all day. It won't make you break out and it's a wonderful natural flush. The packaging is simple, but you can see how much you have …Read more
