Lip Gloss - NARS Cosmetics - Scandal

Jan/17/2008

This is a sheer, strawberry-red gloss that I imagine would look good on nearly even skin tone. At the NARS display in Sephora I forced myself away from my usual pinky-browns and picked this instead. The name is a bit silly -- it's hardly scandalous -- but it is a pretty color. It really brightens up my skin (med. pale, freckled, blue eyes). It does have a thick consistency, so it's best …Read more

This product works very well for my dry skin. I use it along with a washcloth to take off my makeup. My skin never feels tight afterward, nor does it feel greasy. I've never broken out from it, but then I don't generally break out from anything. The smell is herbal and pleasant. The price is high, but worth it for quality ingredients. I use many products from the Juice Beauty line (eye …Read more

Highlighters - SHISEIDO - Accentuating Color Stick In Glistening Flush

This is a fabulous highlighting product. For one, the stick format makes it really easy to apply. For "two," the color is just shimmery enough to highlight, without looking frosty or scary. I use it on my cheek and brow bones every day. The packaging is lovely -- feels substantial and is easy to hold and maneuver. I think I'll pick up the Peach Flush when it gets closer to summer.

I have been using this product for years, but I have a renewed appreciation for this now that I'm undergoing chemotherapy. My skin has never been so dry, even in the middle of a humid summer, and this provides immediate relief. It's particularly useful on my feet. Some creams soak into your feet and then your skin looks dry again a few hours later, but this works for a very long time …Read more

My skin is pretty good overall, so I don't wear foundation. I do, however, have some light red blotchy spots on my "jowls." This does a great job of camouflaging those spots, and it's really easy to apply and blend. I like the tight-sealing tube, too. It seems like it will keep the product fresh longer. The price is highish, but worth it since it works so well.

This is the first non-waterproof mascara I've ever liked. It doesn't run or flake, even when my eyes water. It gives good drama in just one coat, it's cheap, and it doesn't make my curled lashes droop. What more could you want??

Where has this been all my life? I've used pretty much everything under the sun for my dryish, sensitive skin, and I just picked this up one day on a whim. I really think it's the perfect cleanser -- removes makeup, rinses easily, cleans without drying, leaves no residue, and isn't overly perfumed. Two thumbs up!

Dec/06/2006

This is my favorite anti-wrinkle cream. I've been using it for a month or so now and my skin looks fabulous. I have also used the eye cream for months and love it. My crows feet are greatly diminished and my skin just looks more even overall. I was happy to see that this was rated the most effective anti-wrinkle cream by Consumer Reports, which just backs up my experience with it. Best of …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Aveeno - Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion with Cooling Menthol

This stuff saves me from winter flakes and itch. I started using it this year as soon as fall approached, and my skin has been smooth and comfortable. It lasts for two days, which is good because I only shower every other day (to save my skin and hair from getting even drier).

The menthol smell dissipates almost immediately, and the pump bottle is very handy. I highly recommend it.

This is a perfect base eyeshadow. It covers redness and veins, tones down deep shadows, and has great texture. Like most MAC shadows, it has great staying power. This is my everyday "underwear" for lids. It goes well with Cork in the crease, and Espresso as a liner.
