Top/Base Coats - Essie - Gel Setter Top Coat

Aug/12/2015

I wanted to love this topcoat after reading the reviews and seeing the ad but I don't! :( I applied Essie basecoat, 2 coats of Essie Mademoiselle and then gel setter. It's certainly not fast drying but I would forgive that if it gave great shine and a "plump" feeling to the nails. Alas, the shine was gone in 2 days and my nails didn't feel slick like they do with a gel …Read more

Blush - CLINIQUE - Cheek Pop in Ginger Pop

Apr/07/2014

I fell in love with the packaging and promptly bought 2 shades...Plum and Ginger. I use the Ginger every day. It lasts long and you just need a touch of it. I use a big brush I purchased from Yves Rocher (who knew their brushes were so nice?) and one sweep does it. I've found that I only need to apply once a day for all day coverage. I'm not as pleased with the Plum. It's more of a …Read more

I love this mascara with it's caterpillar brush. :-) It doesn't lengthen your lashes but makes them dark, thicker and natural looking. I have very light brown lashes and they're fairly long so I just need a mascara that darkens and makes them seem a bit thicker and this does the trick. I use one coat for daytime and 2 coats if I'm going out. Works like a charm for me and is …Read more

I really wanted to love this product as I had read the many rave reviews and loved the fact it could give light coverage or heavier as desired. I am so disappointed!!! I was given 2 samples at the makeup counter. Both #30 Beige. I tried it yesterday without moisturizer. My skin seemed to drink it up and I was left with a dry, yellow, cakey face! :-( Today I tried it with my regular moisturizer on …Read more

Mascara - CLINIQUE - Bottom Lash Mascara

Apr/21/2013

If you're looking to define light colored bottom lashes without smearing or flaking then this is the one for you! I put it on in the early morning and it doesn't budge. I was even in a rainstorm with it and it stayed put.Unfortunately I tried it on my upper lashes thinking it was a great waterproof mascara and I yanked out some of my lashes trying to remove it at night. I suppose …Read more

Lip Treatments - Smith's Rosebud Salve - Mocha Rose Lip Balm

I wanted to love this as much as I love the other Rosebud products but alas, the texture isn't right for me. The smell is gorgeous and I could sit and smell it all day but I found that the texture was thicker than the others and when I put it on I felt like I had a glob of sticky vaseline on my lips. I've tried it several times but prefer the thinner texture of the Minted Rose or …Read more

I've worn this for several years now and always feel so elegant when I spray it on. Definately not for young women but great on us... .ahem, "older" ladies. I feel it is best suited for colder months but they do have a lighter version that is only sold in the summer months and it's just as wonderful. I've had so many people, men and women, ask what I'm wearing …Read more

I have worn this shade for years and find it works with almost everything! I'm a blue eyed blonde with medium skin and it shows up as a brownish red with some shimmer on me. I was informed that it was being discontinued and ran out and bought 3 only to discover that it is NOT being discontinued. :-) Definately my fav lipstick! It wears well and doesn't cake up and leave you with those …Read more
