I use this with the Teddy kohl pencil, to get that Helena Christensen/Cindy Crawford brown smoky eye. After testing this and the Chocolate Brown on my hand, I went with this. Chocolate Brown was just too orange. I apply Paint, then the pencil, then smudge this over top. Looks great, stays all day. If I had anywhere to go at night, I could see building this into a bigger smoky eye. I said I …Read more

This is the only fragrance that I will come near finishing. I am fickle, but I love this so much I want to bathe in it. I dug this out since the weather got warmer here, but I should really wear it year-round. It's got that suntan lotion of yore scent, and it dries down creamy and warm, but not overly sweet. You're not going to walk around smelling like a vanilla coconut daiquiri …Read more

Apr/05/2010

You'd think I would know better than to buy a product for my already greasy eyelids than one with the word "grease" in its name, but I am very pleasantly surprised by this. I bought it in Charred Mauve, and it's the best purple-black -- I'm probably banned for life from buying another purple eyeliner from Sephora, because I've returned them all. They all make my …Read more

This is the best natural deodorant I've used so far. Right now I'm using the patchouli scent (which fades, so don't panic about smelling like a Phish concert all day), which I got because patchouli has antibacterial properties, so that will aid the deodorizing. I don't love the sticky, but I don't notice any BO at any time of day. I feel better about using a natural …Read more

Love, love, love. Love the smell (kind of like earthy marshmallows, it that makes any sense), love the texture (not sticky or greasy), love that it's vegan and not tested on animals. Most importantly, I love what it adds to my hair -- dirt, but where I want it, not where it ends up naturally. I can't do that "second day hair thing" so this is perfect. I use it to get those …Read more

I wish they would make regular hair colors, because I can't get this stuff to come out. I used Red Wine on my dark brown hair with maybe 10% gray. I've been using Prell (aka Universal Hair Color Remover) on it for the last 3 days, and it is only fading slightly, not even close to coming out. Typical hair color slides off my gray hairs within 3 days. This stuff is horribly messy -- …Read more

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Complete Salon Manicure Nail Polish

Jan/31/2010

I bought this in Pat On The Black, which isn't the greatest name -- unless your local drugstore has the lights turned out, you'll notice that this polish isn't black but a nice eggplant creme. The packaging claims to include a top and base coat, but when I applied it to a nail without a base coat, the polish went on very unevenly and with poor coverage (even two coats). The brush …Read more

Jan/10/2010

They need to make up a Novel Prize for Cosmetics, and give it to the people who invented this stuff. My eyelids spontaneously remove makeup within minutes, particularly eyeliner. This is the only product I've ever tried (and I've tried lots) that keeps my shadow and liner on and does not crease. As a bonus, it's sort of a pinky beige that happens to make me look more awake. I …Read more

There is nothing not to like about this. The color is perfect for a daytime neutral face (some of the other light MAC colors look a little dead or are too shimmery) or a light lip with a smokey eye. The vanilla scent is the best out there (take note, Heidi Klum for VS). The purchase price is donated to helping people living with AIDS worldwide, and if you buy on World AIDS Day, December 1, MAC …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Wexler Dermatology - MMPi Skin Regenerating Serum

Oct/23/2009

Got this in the kit at BBW. I figured Pat Wexler, the Dick Clark of dermatologists (is she 90 or something? and with that face!) would have some awesome products. I don't get why a serum is full of silicone. I haven't broken out from it, but I don't like slapping on this and the sunscreen and then foundation. It makes it easy to blend makeup, but I don't see how something …Read more
