  • OPI Nail Lacquer
    10.0

    OPI Nail Lacquer

    great color during winter

    When buying my favorite OPI polish Samoan Sand I saw this and thought "how cute this would look in the dead of winter". It's cold here, my feet are bundled up but my toes look cute and spunky in pink. I think it's a great shade of pink. I usually don't like pink on my fingers and toes but this one is a keeper.

  • Philosophy on a Clear Day Salicylic/Glycolic Acid Blemish Serum

    I recently bought a set of Philosophy's On a Clear Day acne products which included: Super Wash for Oily Skin, On a Clear Day Blemish Serum, H202 Cream, and H202 Protection Cream. I'm 43 and have been fighting acne since I was 16 and the combination of these products is the best I have ever used. I didn't think anything could clear up my skin but this did. All 4 products together is not cheap but I think well worth the cost, I will continue to buy it. It's a small price compared to fighting acne when you get into your 40's.

  • Clarins Double Fix' Mascara
    10.0

    Clarins Double Fix' Mascara

    Makes regular mascara water proof, water tight!

    I have never found a mascara that could stand up to my oily skin so I stopped looking for a mascara and started looking for something to add to the mascara. I found it in Clarins Double Fix Mascara. You apply your regular mascara then apply Double Fix Mascara over it then I use a eye lash comb to keep the lashes even and combed, that's it. For me it stays on and does not come off until I wash it off. I applied it this morning at 6:00 and now at 10:00 in the evening I can lightly tug on my lashes and nothing comes off. I will always buy this product. Product quality...Excellent! Live up to it's claim...Yes Absolutly! Length of wear...as long as you want even 24 hours, seriously. Value for the money...Yes Absolutly!

  • Make Up For Ever Eye Seal - Waterproof Liquid converter

    I have very very oily skin so any eyeliner I apply always give me the "racoon eyes" look half way thru the day. After researching products for several months I found Make Up For Ever's Eye Seal. I could not find ANY reviews on it other than what the company and Sephora states so because it didn't cost an arm and a leg ($20) I bought it. OMG !!! this is the absolute best product, I will use this to my dying day! You can use it with a pencil eyeliner, you can use it with a liquid eyeliner. I apply it at 6:00 in the morning and it's still on perfectly at 8:00 at night...remember I said I had very very oily skin, my brothers started calling me "greaser" when I was 16 because of how oily I am and Eye Seal could care less how oily I am, you put it on and it stays strong yet washes off like any other liner. Product quality...excellent ! excellent ! it's a clear "water like" liquid, I put a small dot on my bathroom counter mix it with my regular liner and apply. Did it live up to it's claim... OMG YES !!!! Length of wear... OMG at least 12 hour !!! Someday I'll test it and see just how long it stays put, right now I know it stays for 12 hours with out moving at all. I've read that claim before in other eyeliners but they all weeped when they came in contact with my oily skin. I can keep that weepy product just mix it with Eye Seal and wala! Miracle eyeliner created. Value for the money...It cost $20, I would spend over $50 or more for it if I had to so $20 I think is an EXCELLENT value for my holy grail eyeliner. I kinda feel a little guilty because up until now I have told no one how great this product is, my mom...nope my best friend...nope I guess I want to keep it my own little secret, my own little crowned jewel.

  • Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup
    9.0

    Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup

    Worth the extra money.

    I recently received a free sample of Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup, I really liked it so I set out to research this new makeup. First thing I learned is it's not cheap by any means.....$60 for 1 and a half ounces. I think we need to splurge on ourselves occasionally and this was my splurge. Every thing I read about it states..... that it contains Matrixyl which helps your body produce collagen (we can all use collagen) it also helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles (always a good thing). It is said to contain Skin Tightener ST to improve texture and promote younger looking skin, I thing everything can be improved on, even someone with flawless skin. Every since I was 16 (I'm now 43) I have been "lovingly" called a "greaser" because of my very oil skin so I was really happy to see that Hourglass Veil was oil-free, parabens-free, fragrance-free, and has SPF 15. I finally bought it and am now using it, my review of this foundation make up is.......it has a good texture once applied, the color match to my skin is perfect more so than ANY foundation I have ever used. Does the product live up to it's claim...yes to a certain degree, the one I don't know if we will ever see is the claim to help fight the signs of aging. The fountain of youth does not exist so no makeup can change aging maybe slow it down a bit. On length of wear...remember I said I have very very oily skin, you could but pure tar on my face and by 4:00 in the afternoon it will be sliding off my face so with a foundation makeup I am glad if I wash my face when I get home and see some kind of makeup appear on my washcloth and I see alot of this foundation still on after 4:00. Value for the money... I think it all in the eyes (or face) of each buyer. With my purchase of Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup I got what I expected (and I researched it before buying) and I like the makeup alot and I'd like to be able to buy it regularly but the steep price may keep me from buying it at times when money is tight. All and all I like it alot and am thrilled with my purchase.

  • bareMinerals SPF 25 Mineral Veil
    10.0

    bareMinerals SPF 25 Mineral Veil

    This is the only powder foundation I will ever buy.

    I use this everyday, because it does not clog your pores there is no need to give your skin a day off from makeup. I love the fact that their stores are always there to match my skin summer when tanner and winter when that great tan fades. This is also easy to travel with and is not a liquid therefore not a problem in your suitcase when traveling. I find that since using this my skin has a "glow" look all day long and at 40 if you can achieve a glow to your skin why try anything else.

  • Dior Diorshow Black Out
    10.0

    Dior Diorshow Black Out

    Don't waste your time with any other mascara

    Seriously !! Diorshow is the best ever and in my 40 years I think I've tried at least 100 other brands. It goes on without clumps and yet is not to wet like some other brands that claim no clumps. I'm of italian descent and have very very oil skin and find that most mascaras after 8 hours find their way off your eyelashes into that lovely racoon pattern under your eyes, not the case with Diorshow. It may be a little pricier than others but if you were not born with perfect eyelashes this is a must have to make your lashes look perfect.
