Primer/ Corrector - L'Oreal Paris - Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base

I ran out of my Avon Magix so I decided to try this Magic Perfecting because I don't have an Avon lady right now, plus I had an event coming up and needed it pronto. I don't like this L'Oreal perfecting base. It's crumbly, it gets stuck under my fingernails, it's hard to scoop out of the small jar. I can't wait to use it up and get back to the Avon one which is …Read more

Moisturizers - Merlot Skin Care - Moonlight Radiance Natural Grape Seed Night Cream

My hubby started using this and he's getting comments from the guys about what is it that he's using!
I started using this a few months ago. I sometimes use my Lancome Genefique under this to add moisture. No where on the Merlot label does it say that it moisturizes (just says helps to retain moisture). If you want moisture/hydration use something else. This cream "promotes …

Polishes - REVLON - Colorstay in Bare Bones

This is a beautiful neutral for my olive skin. Works great if you tend to wear silver jewelry. It looks so great on me that I usually buy two bottles because I noticed that it tends to sell out!

I use Essie's "Rock solid" as the base coat, then two coats of the "Bare Bones" color. It does take some time to dry so I recommence letting the first coat dry …

I can actually go without makeup again - almost.

I still need a little bit of concealer, which is ironic because I got a sample of Genefique as a GWP when I bought my trustee, never-fail Lancome Renergie Lift Makeup. I tried it for a few days then forgot about it. But I had been having a new problem with my skin for a few months. It seems like since I hit 40 earlier this year, my skin …

I'd never of "Dah-vee-ness" until my new hair dresser told me about it. I'm happy to say that my hair finally looks shiny and stays cleaner longer. I used to have a lot of itchy scalp and since I've been using this I no longer have that problem.

This is how my hairdresser suggested I use the shampoo and conditioner:

- You need very little product …

Like several of the other comments, I was looking for better ingredients in my conditioner. That being said, this is pricier but well worth it.

My hair is medium thick and neither curly nor straight, just an ugly in between. I use this as both the shampoo and conditioner, just put a ton on until I ran run my fingers through my wet hair smoothly. If my fingers are still not running …

First used this at a girlfriend's when my flat-ironed hair started puffing due to humidity.

"Here. Put this on it," said insisted. I saw the word "milk" on the package and thought "Oh this can't be good..." Boy was I wrong. It calmed the puff right away. I was so impressed.

I ran out and bought some the next day. Since I'm trying …

Long lashes that last and last!
Telescopic in Carbon Black is excellent for giving length!

I was a bit afraid to purchase this as I had tried the Voluminous Carbon Black and it smudged everywhere after 2 hours - not so with this one. Well, just a little toward the end of the day but nothing to really complain about. My day was spent outside in 90 degree heat with a decent humidity …

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Mascara - Carbon Black

I really love the color on this, a beautiful, deep, gorgeous black that I have never seen in any other drugstore brand.

But by 10 a.m. I have smudges and spend the rest of the day looking in the mirror and wetting a tissue to wipe underneath my lower lashes (and this is that I only put it on the upper lashes!).

Love the color, hate the smudging, alas, I will not re-purchase.
