    Chapstick True Shimmer

    Lip Balms with just a bit more oomph

    I'm a mad fan of lip balms, so went out and got a True Shimmer as soon as they launched. I got the Fruit Sherbet back in January on a rare trip to Wal Mart. I guess it was exclusive to them, as now it's being released market wide as new. I never saw that flavor anywhere else. So what do I think- I love them. It turns out the Berry one is my favorite, I think because it has the most tint. You do get a tiny bit of berry pink tint from this one. Sherbet , Tropical and the other new flavor, Peppermint all have shimmer but not really tint. It's a nice shimmer too. Subtle, barely there. Works alone or over/under lipstick. They all have a strong fragrance ( which I like), and a bit of a taste corresponding to their name . They are super moisturizing. I just wish they had SPF. Other than that , they're almost perfect.

  • L'Oreal Paris HiP Studio Secrets Professional Color Presso

    I think the idea of the two glosses together is fun and so is the flat tube. Something different in packaging. The gloss itself is very nice. Has a great cookie/vanilla smell, goes on nicely and has plenty of shimmer but not too sticky. You can squezeze out both shades together or one at a time.

  • L'Oreal Paris HiP Studio Secrets Professional Kohl Eyeliner

    I loved this. The applicator is a serious point so you get a great, easy line. I found it easier to use than even pencil. I am using the gold color. I was really impressed and now want to get the brown and teal shades. There was minimal fallout,but since it's a light color it was not a problem.

  • Philip B. Peppermint and Avocado Volumizing & Clarifying Shampoo

    This shampoo is a great scalp treatment shampoo. It really helps it to feel less irritated and more moisturized. The shampoo itself is great for normal to oily hair. It has a strong mint smell. Highly aromatic with high levels of peppermint oil. Use with the light conditioner.

  • Max Factor Vivid Impact Lip Color

    This new lipstick is really good. Highly pigmented, very creamy and moisturizing. Feels very high end. Max Factor always made great products, good to see them back at it.

  • Max Factor 2000 Calorie Extreme Lash Plumper

    I haven't used a Max Factor mascara in awhile. I recall using the orginal 200 calories years ago and liking it . This new one is a good addition to the line. It really thickened and volumized, and does good but not super lengthening. My only issue is the wand brush is huge. Bigger than most I've used. It gets in the way a bit. If the brush were just a bit smaller, would be great. This mascara also wears well. No smudges or running all day, which rarely happens with me. I like that. I plan on trying the waterproof 2000 Calorie next.

  • Cover FX Natural FX Water Based Foundation SPF 15

    This has great coverage and lasts long. It's a bit dewy for my oily skin but in cooler months is perfect. Blends easily and you only need a little. Full coverage , very creamy.

  • Elemis Exotic Frangipani Monoi Moisture Melt

    This not only moisturizes like crazy but smells amazing. The best beachy, coconut , gardenia mix. Heady and tropical just like being on the islands. Can't recommend enough.

  • Olay Pro-X Eye Restoration Complex

    I wanted to love the Pro X line, but it didn't do it for me. This eye cream was ok, but not any better than most. I do not have dark circles ( thankfully) and that seems to be what most people got results on. I used it for 2 weeks and all seemed the same. It also wasn't as moisturizing as I thought it would be. So it's nice but not great.

  • Chanel Les Exclusifs

    Beige is the newest Les Exclusif, and it's gorgeous. One of the best I've smelled in a long time. A dash of white flowers, a dash of honey and hawthorne. Hard to describe but beautiful. Feminine, elegant.
