Lotions/ Creams - Philosophy - Amazing Grace Firming Body Emulsion

3.0

Apr/11/2007

I received this as a gift. As far as perfume-scented moisturizers go, this is the best I've used. It's not so overly fragranced as to be a turn-off, and has a nice non-greasy feel. I agree with the previous poster that the scent is more of a mix of Amazing Grace and Pure Grace. The pump bottle is huge. However, there are far better and/or cheaper body lotions out there, and I prefer …Read more

I hadn't considered wearing blue on my brown eyes since my teen-80s years. I bought this after seeing blues/purples on many of my brown-eyed friends last spring-- got jealous of how good it looked and wanted one of my own! This was hands-down my only selection at Sephora, without even trying it on. I'm very satisfied with the color, texture, sheen, everything! I usually just wear it …Read more

Jan/06/2006

This is my first Lustreglass, and my first MAC product of any kind (can you believe it?). I am hooked! Same experience as the other rave reviews, so I won't repeat. Looking forward to building my Lustreglass collection.

Mascara - CHANEL - Sculpting Mascara Extreme Length

Dec/30/2005

I really like this mascara-- so far the best I've used, though I'm always in search of more/better. Nice glossy black color, and the ultra-skinny wand gives me much more control than most mascaras. I can get every lash, even the stubborn corner lashes, with MUCH less mess all over my skin (which usually happens when I apply mascara). So far I've had minimal clumping, and no …Read more

Sunscreen - Coppertone - Endless Summer Ultrasheer Sunscreen Stick SPF 30

Dec/20/2005

ABSOLUTELY indispensible for me when I'm out for summer recreation (beach, boat, pool, hiking, etc). UBER-portable, and can be applied without a mirror, without running into eyes, and without greasing up hands. I do think, however, it's too waxy to use as a regular everyday sunscreen in my skincare routine. But for what I need it to do, PERFECTION!

Treatments (Face) - SkinCeuticals - C E Ferulic

Dec/20/2005

Not sure how to evaluate this-- I'd used the serum 10 vit C for a couple of years, then switched to this about 3 months ago. No noticable change in my complexion, but I'm using it for the antioxidant protection and to prevent aging, so I guess only the years will tell. I can say that I do not experience the "shine" that other reviewers describe, and the smell does subside …Read more

Eye Shadow - bareMinerals - Eye glimmers

These are just so damn awesome! I don't have much info to add to other reviews, except to emphasize that these aren't exactly "shimmery" as you see in other eyeshadows, rather they look almost glossy and liquidy on your skin. SO COOL!

Powder - bareMinerals - Original Foundation

Dec/12/2005

I've been using BE makeup for about a year, though I don't wear foundation every day. I've always HATED liquid or cream foundations, and I definitely prefer this over any powder I've used. Gives equal coverage, and feels much lighter and more natural on my face. I agree, of course with the other reveiwers that it can't be applied like your usual powder, but rather …Read more

I received this in a package from BE last winter. It's a nice, not thrilling, mascara. It has a very natural look, i.e. not MAJOR length or volume, but not clumpy at all, and very glossy. It was fine to use, but I wouldn't go out and buy it at the BE price point.
