Dec/31/2008

I love the color, and have been wearing it for five days now.

I always layer: base, 2 color, and CND Air Dry. CND Air Dry is 3F, doesn't thicken quickly, and doesn't cause tip shrinkage. I experienced those last two with SV over and over.

Application of CG "Branding Iron" was similar to the experience of others. A little thicker and streakier than I …

Apr/09/2008

I have these in three shades:
Treasure (bronze shimmer) - my mlbb shade, great neutral for anything

Serenade (deep rose shimmer) - on those days when I want to go a little cooler in coloration, this is what I reach for; it is almost in the coral range for me, not too pinky. I thought about returning it, but ever once in a while I need this shade.

Rendezvous (deep plum …

This is my favorite day wear lip covering. I like the way it feels and the way it looks, very much mlbb. It is not sticky like many l/g, which I can't stand.

The smell is more than tolerable (unlike Estee Lauder lipsticks that my mother passes my way) and it is not drying on my lips.

It is one of the few lip formulations with an SPF, though Stila has just come out …

Brows - Paula's Choice - Ultra-Thin Eye & Brow Pencil [DISCONTINUED]

Feb/29/2008

I've had packaging problems with a few products in the past: Revlon and Cover Girl eyeliner lids, and a couple of lip stick lids that split.

However, I've never had so many product packages self destruct as I've had with Paula's Choice products.

The lid of one and base of another Ultra-Thin Eye & Brow Pencil split. There is a great color selection …

However, I've never had so many product packages self destruct as I've had with Paula's Choice products.

The lids of these, and I've purchased a handful, crack and fall off at a unreasonable rate. I'd say …

I strongly discourage use of this product as a cleanser.


It's main ingredients are juice, oils, and glycerin. None of these will actually "clean". You are adding oil to your skin, and my skin felt very oily after using this, and I just thought "it's not completely stripping the skin of its natural oils".


Well, actually, it's …

Meh. Waste of money.


This makes no change in my skin. It feels heavy and funky when I put it on, and my Seborrheic Dermatitis does not like it. (I actually do better with diluted Tea Tree Oil.)


I've seen no effect in the weeks that I've used it, and it makes me think that people are getting ripped off (yet again, continually?) by cosmetics …

Second review - winter update
We had a mild winter, and the humidity never dropped that low. I have to repeat what I said below, this product just doesn't work in a humid environment, period.

I'm foisting my bottle off on someone else. Anybody live in the desert?



First review - summer
I live in the humid south. I tried this several times …

I would almost make a place for Divine's L'ame soeur in my fragrance collection. This is the closest I've ever come to liking a floral. My favorites consist of: Bvlgari's Au the Vert, Diptyque's Philosykos, Caron's Parfum Sacre, and i Profumi's Ambra del Nepal. I seriously dislike florals. They make me feel like Goldilocks: this one's too sweet, that …Read more
