Okay. I think this is my first ever review. Probably for a good reason as you will see in the next few sentences. I, like a lot of you, have been searching for that elusive, mlbb shade of lipstick. Based on reviews and swatches, I tried this and it's perfect but not my mlbb. So why the five stars? It's not my mlbb, it's what I have always wanted my lips to be. It ends up I've …Read more

Is this supposed to be BE's bronzer? Maybe bronzers don't work for PPP women. Or, at least not this PPP woman. I have truly liked all of the other BE products I have tried but this, this only works if you don't care that you look like a pumpkin.

Lip Treatments - Victoria's Secret - Pleasingly Plump Lip Enhancer

This is supposed to plump? I know how all of the lip plumpers work, so I'm not expecting miracles but for the money, they could make it sting or something. No, instead it just gushes out a boatload of pinky colored gloss, ostensibly thinking (VS I mean) that if our lips are shinier, then they are fuller, right? A little optical illusion sleight of hand, right? Uh uh.

Sunscreen - La Roche-Posay - Anthelios Dermo-Pediatrics SPF60-PPD28

Hands down, this is the best sunscreen I have tried so far. It is a little more substantive than some of the other sunscreens and it takes some work or it can just sit there but for high protection that doesn't leave me looking like a geisha wannabe AND I can apply makeup afterwords--this is HG.

Blush - CHANEL - Irreelle Blush in Tea Rose

I received this in a swap. I had read the reviews and was really looking forward to a blush that was so sheer I could build and build, etc and that could give Orgasm a run for it's money. Plus, I love anything Chanel so I was prepared to like it sight unseen. However, sadly, my experience with it wasn't the same as others here on the board. It looks very pretty in the container. A …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Orgasm Blush

Very pretty blush. Worth every bit of the hype it has received. Goes on very sheer and can be built up and has a teensy bit of believable shimmer which is very important to us not so young ladies. I didn't think I could wear a peachy pink blush but this is such a universal color I think anyone could wear it. It would just depend on how heavily you apply it. It lasts forever for me too. I …Read more

Of all the physical barrier sunscreens available here in the good ol' US, this is the best I have found so far. Seems like sunscreens don't run the entire spectrum of dry to oily because all I have found is one or the other. This is no exception. It leaves my dry skin feeling pulled tight by the end of the day. If I, like so many here on the board, had normal or oily skin this is the …Read more

Self Tanners - CLARINS - Liquid Bronze Self-Tanning

Apr/24/2006

I love this stuff. It is the only self-tanner I have tried on my face but I don't have to try anything else when this so clearly works. Very easy application (sorta wish it were a little tinted tho), dries fast, you can apply moisturizer, foundation, sunscreen, whatever immediately after and not screw it up. The results are a very natural light (on me as I don't use a lot) light tan …Read more

Mascara - CLINIQUE - High Impact Mascara

I agree with the other reviewers. This product clumps a lot and runs easily. It's not that much more expensive than drugstore brands but not better than any of them either. Will stick with Clinique's glossy mascara.

I like everything about this mascara. I have naturally long eyelashes and almost any mascara works but too many cake up and give me "Tammy Faye" eyes. But not this one. Even though it costs a little more than drugstore brand, it is worth it for the gloss it imparts that the drugstore brands do not.
