Polishes - Essie - Like Linen

I love this by iteself, or layered over another colour. One coat makes my tips look whiter and the nail clean & bright. One coat over Mademoiselle makes my nails look a bit pinkish, like the inside of a tiny clamshell. Perfect for my cool, pale colouring. I've tried many Essie sheers, and this is one of my favourites.

Scrubs - Darphin - Mild Aroma Peeling - Aroma Peeling Doux

This is a great product, but it isn't the easiest to use. Luckily, a Darphin rep showed me the correct technique. Instead of trying to 'scrub' it off, lightly 'erase' it in a circular motion with your fingertips. It takes a while, but it works. I have very sensitive skin, sometimes with redness and dry patches, and after using this mask, my skin is so soft & …Read more

Holy Grail status for me. I have fline, limp, flat hair that's on the oily side. This is the only product that actually makes my hair look full and wavy! I have tried everything, and previously used Bumble & Bumble thickening spray which makes my hair dry and flyaway, but still gives it more texture than no product at all.

Be careful how much Volumactive you use, and how …

This is an excellent highlighter, primer & overall light 'foundation', and I'm glad I bought 2. It covers the red in my cheeks & chin & makes my skin glow Shame that it was a limited edition, as are so many of GA's really nice products. I agree that it tends to separate, and I am careful to give it a good shake before I use it. I've been looking for a …Read more

I am a PPP (green eyes, lt brown hair), I can't tan & will burn if I'm not wearing SPF 30. For some perverse reason, I keep trying bronzers, hoping to find something that makes me look healthy, tanned & glowing. Chantecaille Capri was ok, with a very light touch. SM was also ok. However, i love GA products, and when I saw this palette at the Saks counter in NYC, I bought …Read more

This was my first GA palette, and after using it for a couple of weeks, I bought a second one. I've had them for a few months now, keep one in my purse & when I travel, I don't need to bring much else. I love the clever package, with 2 lip colours, a tiny brush & eye shadow applicator on the bottom layer, and 4 eye shadows on top. The colours are perfect for me, with both …Read more

This is a perfect blush for my very light skin (with green eyes & dark hair). It looks dark in the container, but goes on beautifully. Looks natural & warm, with a slight, dewy shimmer. Love this blush!

I tried GA for the first time at a makeup event 2 weeks ago, and I am so impressed with everything I tried -- especially this eye shadow. The colour is a perfect, neutral taupe with a hint of subtle shimmer. Silky texture, lasts for hours, looks great. I use it over a wash of #4. Love it! For years, I relied on Chanel's Les Tamises trio, but GA #11 is my new basic.
