  • Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Intensive Lifting Creme

    I was looking for a moisturizing firming cream to help my skin deal with the colder weather. I read about this cream on line and decided to make the investment. Needless to say, it broke me out! It states that the cream will not cause breakout and yet one of the main ingredients is petrolatum- which is vaseline, a major skin clogger. Needless to say, I ended up returning it after trying it for a month. On the upside, it moisturized well and absorbed quickly. If you want a similar product but one that will work and not break you out, try Kate Somerville Deep Tissue Repair.

  • GloMinerals gloPressed Base

    I have been using BE foundation for a couple of years. It worked fine for a while but during the day it starts to settle into lines you did not thought you had- made them more visible!!! So I decided to try this one. I was sceptical since many mineral products have settled into my pores and made lines more visible. I have to say that this one works! I put it at 7am and by 11am I still did not need a touch up like I used to. I did not dry me out either. I have dry acne, and other mineral foundations made the breakout stand out even more! Not this one. It does not cake and it does not dry out but you don't get shine either. Very balanced. Covers very good!

  • bareMinerals SPF 25 Mineral Veil

    bareMinerals SPF 25 Mineral Veil

    The only powder for me

    The best loose powder on the market. I have tried them all and have not found one that lasts and does not settle into my pores. This one does it all. The eliminates shine, gives a very smooth velvety finish and it lasts, works great year round and all kinds of climates. Will not change it for anything.

    M.A.C. Eye Shadow

    The best and true to color

    This one is a bit expensive but boy does it last and you only need a bit. The color you see on the pot is the one you get on your eyes! I have Vapour and Trax- a great day into night combination. My eyes pop in these colors. They do not disappoint. Great staying power too.

  • Bobbi Brown Shimmer Lip Gloss
    9.0

    Bobbi Brown Shimmer Lip Gloss

    Very good and pretty colors

    This is one of the better glosses I haver tried. Most glosses disappear on me being too pale or too runny. This one is a bit tacky but has good staying power. I have it in Kir Sugar and it is my perfect color, lasts until you eat something, then it fades gradually. The only downside is the weird, microscopic brush. It frays fast and you need to apply the gloss several times and blend it since the brush never picks up enough color. Only a 9 due to the 'crappy' brush.

  • Bliss Daily Detoxifying Facial Toner

    I have tried many toners in my life. This one is nice since it does not sting. It is not as watery as most toners. I felt it did a good job. Good if your have a few dry area and don't want to use a strong, alcohol based toner.

  • Bliss The Youth As We Know It Moisture Cream

    I call this the Mother Load- it has everything your skin needs. I am on my second jar and my skin looks and feels great. Your skin will have a glow immediately! The few lines I have seem to be "ironed" out. It is great in winter when my skin feels a bit parched and flaky. It is very good at balancing my skin in the summer with dry air conditioned air. When it is very humid, I only use a tiny bit since it is so rich. My skin loves it and it just "eats" it up. Wonderful! A perfect 10.

  • Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Intensive Lifting Eye Creme

    I splurged on this eye cream since I was feeling quite desperate with the dryness and crepeness around my eyes. The price was a bit high for an eye cream but I was willing to give it a try. I was not disappointed. It is very creamy and it moisturizes very well. It did not make my eyes sting. It left the skin feeling very soft and hydrated and it definitely lessened the dry lines. I would recommend it to anyone who has tried everything for very dry skin around the eyes and nothing has worked. Yes, the price is steep so this is definitely an investment item. A 9 only due to the high high price.

  • Estee Lauder Perfectionist CP+ Wrinkle Lifting Serum

    I was skeptical to get a mass produced product with such great claims. I rarely buy beauty products in department stores preferring smaller boutique and spa or plastic surgeon's brands but was I impressed with this one. It made my skin velvety smooth, it did not sting, burn or itch- something that happens often with other products. My face did not break out at all, it did not turn shiny nor did it dry out my face. It was perfectly balanced. It even smoothed out my "thinking" wrinkle between by eye brows! It was amazing to see how it lightened the melasma I also have. After a week of using it, I don't need foundation primer and I noticed I need less makeup! WOW! Thank you, Estee Lauder!
