I love this product! I only thought Armani was the best lash primer. How wrong was I! This stuff is magical on my 50+ lashes that are sparse and short. I was hooked from the first tube I bought and still loving tube #6. I mean I don't go to the grocery without using this before at least one coat of my YSL Faux Cils mascara. Amazing!

Lipstick - GUERLAIN - Rouge Automatique - 100 Apres L'Ondee

Apres L'Ondee was the 5th Rouge Automatique for me. It is perfect nude for my fair skin because it has some neutral color but it doesn't wash me out. Most reviews I read call it pink. I beg to differ. On my very pigmented lips, it is a nice bronzy coral with just the perfect amount of color for my casual days. This lipstick is amazing when topped with a pale gold or bronze gloss. …Read more

I just received this in "Bare" and couldn't wait to put it on my face. Being over 50, I'm all about the "glow" and hydration. This stuff is a MUST HAVE for ladies my age! I am blessed with good skin, and it gives me the right coverage and such a pretty glow - I don't see glitter at all. I tried half of my face with just this product, then the other half with …Read more

I've never been a fan of the No. 5 fragrance - the perfume always just was "too too". However, this summer in the terrible high temps and humidity, I really wanted to try some soothing bath powder (not drug store brand) to get rid of the "stickiness" before bed. I splurged and ordered this. WOW - INSTANT LOVE. The smell was so wonderful - not that overpowering sicky …Read more

I wasn't sure about the whole "gloss pot" concept with these, but after seeing how Butterfield 8 actually looked on my lips, I wouldn't care if they packaged it in egg cartons!!! This is the most sophisticated nude color I have ever tried. To say it is my "HG" is such an understatement. If you try to buy one of these and find it's sold out, blame me. My plan …Read more

OK, I admit I spend waay to much on my hair. Color/highlights/cut every four weeks - but I'll gladly skip other little luxuries just to have my hair a certain way! My stylist has begged me to buy this shampoo and the conditioner for years and I always laughed at the price tag and thought "no way it could be THAT good!" Well ... I was wrong, very wrong! I got it at a very …Read more

Like many others here, I got this in a set from QVC. Well, it was true love at first swipe! This is the most perfect nude lip gloss I have in my drawer and ... it actually does plump my lips!!!! I can't imagine why Leslie hasn't brought it back into her regular offerings because it is stunning. Love it!

Don't let Christina fool you --- it isn't just another frosty berry lippie! It will probably look different on different levels of pigment in lips, but I am in love with this one! On me, it gives my fair skin such a lift and brings my whole face to life - especially my green eyes. It isn't too shimmery and doesn't seem to dry out on me. The beautiful rip e iced raspberry …Read more

I went searching for a deeper lipgloss for the fall/winter and found rave reviews for this one. It's not easy to find - but with a little googling, I nabbed one. Boy, was it worth all the effort! This is a gorgeous pigmented, yet sheer berry brown shade that is just gorgeous. I don't think I've ever seen another gloss quite like this. Somehow, it isn't sticky and …Read more

Being in my 50s, I began noticing my lips just weren't as full as they always had been. Really no vertical lip lines to speak of - not a smoker. After trying this product for a week, what I really noticed was a real improvement in the "definition" of my lips. The actual lip line was more pronounced, and fuller. I am hooked on this product and can find it discounted online now. …Read more
