Blush - Tarte Cosmetics - Cheek Stain in Flush

4.0

Sep/07/2006

Face type: PPP with cool tones
I finally tried this product after (two years) seeing it top the beauty magazines 'Best of" in blushes/stains. I really don't like powder blushes as I think they don't look as natural as creme or gel or stains. I liked creme blushes, but they inevitably clog my pores, and I have been using Benetint for about three years now and like it but …

Eyeliner - Bobbi Brown - Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Bronze Shimmer

Jul/07/2006

I bought this at Gloss.com based on the reviews here and the raves on the Makeup Board. Beautiful, beautful, beautiful! I think this shade would complement and enhance any eye colour, however it really makes blue eyes pop! Don't be afraid of the shimmer. Its not sparkly or glittery at all, it just brightens your eyes in a subtle but very effective way. I work in a conservative office and …Read more

Styling Products - L'Oreal Paris - Smooth Intense Frizz Taming Serum

I tried this product based upon the great reviews it got here. I was not disappointed! I like the moisturizing properties of it and it does a great job of taming the frizzies and it is very inexpensive. I use it for straightening, or defining my curls. It works great at both. Its a staple in my bathroom.

Fragrances - Caswell-Massey - Cucumber

I bought a limited edition bottle of their Cucumber fragrance off of their website for $9.99 in a beautiful old fashioned bottle that looks like its made to be put on a dressing table. I love cucumber scents. The best one I have experienced was The Body Shop's Cucumber Cleansing Milk (of all things!) but they discontinued that item. Since then, no cucumber products have quite made the grade …Read more

Fragrances - Banana Republic Beauty - Classic for women

I wear this frangrance probably the most often. Its seasonless, fresh, clean without screaming "I'm wearing perfume!" Its not artifical at all. its very reasonably priced, feminine, and has fresh, clean, green, soapy notes to it. I recommend trying a sample its a great everyday frangrance that is not overpowering.

Fragrances - Coty - Wild Musk Cologne Spray

Dec/30/2003

I ran a list on on the MUA Top picks for fragrances and I was bowled over to see this one! This was my very first "grown up" perfume. I got lots of compliments on it, and despite the fact that its a 'cheap perfume' it does not smell cheap at all. its very sexy, however if you do not like musk scents you will not like this one. I might just go pick up another bottle and …Read more

Conditioner - L'Oreal Paris - Nature's Therapy Unfrizz Smoothing Treatment

Dec/10/2003

This stuff is magic! I couldn't believe my luck when I tried it. It is very rich and creamy, and I found that my hair was in better condition after I used this than the mega moisture treatment, but that's just my perception. This is a great conditioner to use before and after you colour your hair. You can't beat the price and it makes curly, frizz-prone hair soft, shiny and …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Tweezerman - No Slip Skincare Tool (Blackhead/Blemish Extractor)

Dec/09/2003

Wow, I am so glad I found this! I actually first found the Revlon version of this item and checked the reviews of it on Productville. Almost all of those reviews said to run to the Tweezerman! The Tweezerman was $ 11.00 at Walgreen's. Using it does take a bit of practice, but it really does work great. I made sure my face was clean and tried it on a few whiteheads. I had high hopes for this …Read more

Skincare - Body - The Body Shop - Snow Shimmer Lotion

Oct/14/2003

I bought this right before Christmas last year for myself before my trip to my Parent's house for the holidays. I always buy indulgences for traveling. Maybe because I was in the Christmas spirit or somehting, but it really did remind me of snow! It had an almost undetectable shimmer, but I don't care for shimmer, I just liked the fragrance. It was not very moisturizing and I don't …Read more

Shampoo - The Body Shop - Brazil Nut Hair Shampoo

I loved this shampoo. I used it for a long time, it definitely kept my dry curly hair soft and manageble. Didn't fade my colour either. It has a wonderful fragrance too! The only reason I stopped using it was it was a tad expensive. There are a few things I am willing to splurge on but shampoo isn't one of them. I would buy again for travel.
