This and Cony Island Cotton Candy are all I wear. This is a tad pinker and CCIC is more beige. Just depends on my mood, which one I choose. A mani with either of these lasts a good 3-4 days! I do dishes and clean my own house as well as type all day at work. That is a pretty good track record! I also like these this color as a pedicure. Very clean and neat without color, like the foot …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Coney Island Cotton Candy

This and Bubble Bath are all I wear! I used to only use clear polish on my nails but this give me that extra manicured look. I just use one coat and have no problem with streaks or pooling around my nail beds, if I use more than one coat, I do. Plus, one coat dries almost instantly! LOVE the new brush too.

Concealers - COVERGIRL - Invisible Concealer

I use this everyday under my eyes. This is the only concealer I have found that doesn't settle in the fine lines around my eyes. I just dot it on (4 dots under each eye) and blend it in w/ my ring finger. The medium matches my face perfectly and dark circles and crepiness disappear. I have no trouble with this staying on all day or longer.

Lotions/ Creams - Palmer's - Cocoa Butter Formula (All Formulas)

I have this lotion in the pump bottle and it is a great product. I got the pump because I thought the squeeze bottle looked a lil old fashioned. I use it all over my body but I especially like it on my hands. I can apply it before I walk out the door and it keeps the backs of my hands from looking crepey (?sp) and it gives the skin on the backs of my hands a healthy "glow". There …Read more

Moisturizers - Cetaphil - Moisturizing Lotion

Jan/15/2007

This is a great lotion for faces. It has replaced several things I used to use, like eye cream and nighttime moisturizer. One pump is all it takes because the lotion spreads so well. W/ this lotion my makeup go on flawlessly and my fine lines are not evident. I think the cream would be way too rich. And I do have very dry skin, I wouldn't rec it for anyone with an oil problem or who was …Read more

Hair Color - L'Oreal Paris - Excellence Creme

I usually use Clairol Natural Instincts which is not a permanent color (it's Level 2). I used Sahara, their lightest color. Lately, I have noticed a lot of gray hairs around my face that NI wasn't covering....sigh.....so I picked a permanent hair color in hopes it would cover my grays better. It was a toss-up between L'Oreal Excellence and Garnier Nutrisse. At Walgreens …Read more

This is my french manicure nail polish set. I use this color more often than any of the other french manicure sets I have (which should be about all of them now!). I love how it looks on my toes, mostly. It is opalescent but not gaudy. Very classy, like a salon pedi I used to get.

Lip Gloss - Avon - Glazewear Dazzlers in Ruby Slippers

5.0

Dec/26/2006

This is as close to red as I can wear, being light complected blue-eyed and blonde. I used to wear Mystique Glazewear from Avon for my red and recently I discovered that it is just too dramatic-looking for this down-to-earth gal. Ruby Slippers is a much more understated, natural way for me to put a pop of color on my face. I also didn't feel like it was too juvenille (being 40ish - I have …Read more

Masks - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Aspirin Mask

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/20/2006

If I do an aspirin mask and gently exfoliate once or twice a week (in the winter), my 42 year old skin stays soft and supple without any signs of dryness. I don't leave it on very long as a mask but I do work some extra water in and gently rub the areas that tend to be dry on my face (forehead & chin). After rinsing, my skin is wonderful. Then I moisturize and go to bed. The next …Read more
