I love this brush. This is one brush I reach for almost daily.

I use it to apply blushes and bronzers or even highlighters, its great. Decently priced as well, soft, easy to take of and it works!

This is the most dense "skunk" brush I have used, from low end to high end, I had been using the lancome brush and this does not compare, the Lancome seems like a …

Lip Gloss - CHANEL - Glossimer - Nougat

Jun/06/2006

I bought this hoping this would be my nude lipgloss Holy Grail but it isnt. It just didnt "wow" me or my lips!

It does show up - a little. Slight shimmer, slight color, very nude. Didnt give me that "Dead" look, which was a plus but nothing that great looking either for the 25.00 price tag.

I am NC25 right now, and would like a more "oomph" …

Lip Gloss - CHANEL - Glossimer in Glow [DISCONTINUED]

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/06/2006

I was excited to buy this as I thought it would be a great gloss to wear every day, a " my lips but better" type of gloss.

As usual, Chanel glosses are pricey yet feel great, last a long time, slide right on and are larger than the average gloss.

This color however, was not what I expected - it had too much of a peachy orange to it and while it looked more pink …

Self Tanners - Vaseline - Healthy Body Glow Daily Moisturizer - Medium [DISCONTINUED]

May/23/2006

I have tried this and the Banana Boat self tanning moisturizers so far. The Vaseline is a 10 oz bottle for a very reasonable price compared to L'oreal or stinky Jergens.

The product itself is not thick like a body cream or moisturizer, I wish it was thicker but it spreads pretty well but doesnt sink in really fast. The smell is ok. Not bad but not good, the Banana Boat smells …

Highlighters - MAC Cosmetics - Beauty Powder in Shell Pearl

May/09/2006

I bought this with the hope it would give me a more "glowy" look rather than shimmery like BB shimmerbricks or MACs MSF's - I am looking for something in between when I want a more natural look but still want to look radiant.

I am an NC20 currently and it showed up very slight on me, with very liitle glow so I had to keep adding it to make it show up more …

May/09/2006

I've been using this for a awhile now, ( several months) and really like it. I was using L'Oreal Voluminous waterproof which was my holy grail for years however lately I noticed it was making my lashes look spidery even with less coats or just just one coat and also looking brittle eventhough they are not.

I had a ton of samples of this mascara as I have to use a volume …

I got a generous sample of this directly from La Mer when I emailed them to complain about NM not giving out a sample of this precious cream.

They emailed me back saying sorry, and gave me samples of almost all the basic products and this was one. After using it a few times I went out and bought a full size jar.

My skin is oily most of the year, acne prone with occasional …

Bronzers - Tarte Cosmetics - Amazonian Clay Matte Waterproof Bronzer in Hotel Heiress (Deep Bronze)

Mar/06/2006

I bought this after hearing and reading all the great reviews. I am a NC20 normally with pink tones and NC35 tan with beige/tan undertones. Trying it with my regular skin tone was too dark and orangey.

Though the texture was nice and smooth which I liked and it applied nicely it was just the color which was all wrong for me. I applied it both ways, all over for a tanish glow to give …

Mar/04/2006

I bought this product after hearing rave reviews on this board and of course the famous Allure article.

The smell was slightly offensive but something I could live with and was willing to for clear skin. I got some shininess on the skin I noticed when I used it in the morning and it lasted most of the day but I didnt really mind and I have been oily most of my life so I am used to it …

Nov/06/2005

Elizabeth pink is actualy Crystal Baby under a new name. Same shade. ( I used to work for el) Like most Lauder lipsticks they fall apart and have that awful fig smell to them. This is a light nice pink, dont expect coverage or long wearing since its in the Crystal family where all the lipsticks are sheer and not long wearing, try Electric or Pure Color long lasting if you want that. This is …Read more
