Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Sin

Gorgeous. A cool-toned light/medium berry shade with a little shimmer (but not a ton, like Orgasm) that is beyond perfect on my neutral-leaning NW15/MUFE 117 skin.

My fair (but not porcelain) skin tone tends to turn everything it touches into salmon or peach. Uggh! What's a pretty pinky-peach "nude" or "natural flush" on others is screaming orange on me. The …

Lipstick - MILANI - Color Statement Lipstick - Teddy Bare

Browny-reddish raisin-y color. I had several colors I loved like this circa 1995. That's not to say it's dated...it's not a dramatic or unusual "gosh, I couldn't believe I used to wear that!" color, and if it works with your skin tone, I think it can be absolutely gorgeous. In fact, for folks with richer/deeper skin colors, I would RUN for this color to try it out, I …Read more

Lipstick - MILANI - Color Statement - Nude Creme

I'm fair (not quite medium) and I lean neutral-cool (MAC NW15/MUFE 117). Dark hair and eyes; some freckling on nose. Cool-toned colors (berry, non-bright pink, cool mauves, neutral taupes, some raisin/plum etc.) are what I gravitate to as far as makeup colors. It's not uncommon for me to try nude tones that everyone says lean pink vs. peach and find out my skin brings out the peach …Read more

Contour - wet n wild - Coloricon Contouring Palette

Jul/23/2016

COLOR: Dulce de Leche is supposed to be the more neutral of the two palettes currently out -- the toffee one is more warm. Make no mistake, though...Dulce is so incredibly warm toned it's a forest fire of "uggh!" for some neutral/cool fair skinned types. Like me.

The contour color shows on my skin (fair, but not porcelain; neutral-cool; dark eyes/hair) as the exact shade …

May/22/2016

I hate that there is no one perfume that smells exactly like Hawaiian Tropic classic dark tanning oil. I've tried dozens...from high end to hard to find and crazy priced to popular and easy to track down to small etailer's versions, and not one smells like what I'm looking for: a hit-you-over-the-head sweet, creamy tropical reminiscent of Hawaiian Tropic. The Bronze Goddesses and …Read more

Fragrances - Estée Lauder - Bronze Goddess Eau Fraîche Skinscent

2.0

Apr/29/2013

Depends on what you think of a beach-type fragrance. This is sophisticated, elegant and feminine brew; it is not wildly "beachy" or overtly suntan oil/coconut/tropical florals. I personally love sweet n' sunny coconut/tropical fragrances, as long as they don't overdo the gaggy tropical florals. Bronze Goddess lacks all of that and is really just a soft, musky skin fragrance …Read more

Jul/09/2012

No, no, NO. I've tried several of CH's coconut scents (in a quest for a Hawaiian Tropic feel) and they're all fairly average to bad.

Beach Baby = vague beachy coconut scent that quickly devolves to that dreaded cheap fragrance oil "blah" smell -- somewhere between a plastic hairbrush and a nylon doggy chew toy. Fake n' phony at its best, no personality …

Me: 40s/white/natural and sun "enhanced" freckles ha ha/normal-to-oily skin...no significant wrinkling (yet). I have some sun damage/uneven skin tone, blackheads on the sides of my nose, occasional giant elephant-sized single zit breakouts on my chin. Hate them. But hey! No longer!<br><br>


I don't like using moisturizers/products on my face...I know! I …

Hair Treatments - Aphogee - Keratin 2 Minute Reconstructor

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/14/2012

I have fine, wavy, salon-colored long hair (caucasian). Condition is good -- but hey, it's colored (brunette to red), so it needs some babysitting.


This 2 Minute Reconstructor works wonderfully no matter where my hair is in terms of color, especially when it's a couple months out from the ends being done. The results: soft, volume, shiny, not heavy, feels incredibly …

Lotions/ Creams - Eucerin - Dry Skin Therapy PLUS Intensive Repair Lotion

4.0

Jul/30/2011

Pro: It's an great, hardcore, after shower body lotion, probably the best I've ever used (including many lotions, butters, creams, oils like pure coconut, etc.) Once you use it, it'll keep your skin feeling and looking great all day. I love that as I don't like to apply lotion several times per day. Used for a couple of weeks (esp. while exfoliating 2x per week or more) you …Read more
