Beautiful eyes with this secret treasure
Believe it or not, I had never really heard of make up primer for the eyes oe face until my 29+ year birthday. I was starting to have difficulties with cleanly applying my make up as my make up wasn't gliding across my eyelids and face as it once used to.My eyelids were appearing creased and my face looked like it had more lines than a roadmap. Finally, I sought the advice of an expert at the prescriptives counter and asked them if they had any advice for reolving my problem, something that would improve the look and feel of my skin. After moisturizing, they applied their primer, called flawless face primer, which was very thin and spread easily over the skin. After letting it sit for a minute of two, they applied my foundation and what a difference that one product had made. Any line on my face seemed to disappear instantaneously and the slight sagging around the lower part of my face even seemed to improve. After my foundation, blush and setting powder, which usually accentuated any lines I have on my face, had been applied, I looked like I had back in my early twenties and my skin was flawless. Even strangers stopped by the make up counter for a few moments as this make up artist transformed me from drab to fab. As for my eyes, I later learned of another product classified as another miracle worker for attaining youthful eyes called urban decay eye primer which looked, on first appearance as a big nothing. I'm not used to applying products to my eyes that simply seem to disappear into the skin. I applied the urban decay, let it sit until dry and then applied my make up. My eyeshadow easily smoothed over my lids without a hitch, no more creasing of the lids and my eyes looked fabulous. I was able to blend the eyeshadows very easily, without any irritation or puffiness. The eye colors seemed more vibrant and didn't seem to disappear throughout the day. My eye make up stayed intact until I decided to remove it when I was ready to go to bed. The difference between the look of my eyes when I was wearing the primer as compared to when I wasn't was incomprehensible. I will never go a day without wearing my urban decay and the best part is it is so inexpensive and affordable for anyone. I felt young and wonderful again. I felt confidence and that air of confidence has led to no shortange of dates and male pursuers since I learned from the pros how correct all the mistakes I was making in make up application and covering my flaws and imperfections

My Fountain of Youth
After hearing the hype about this product line for months, I finally had the opportunity to try it at Henri Bendel's Night of Fashion this past September. When I initially saw the tubes of product, I actually thought they were samples being handed out. As I was reading about the products, I was approached by a very handsome, friendly gentleman who offered to apply the products to my face, while explaining why these products were any different from all the rest of the skincare products already on the market. He first applied a dot (literally) of eye gel to each other, dabbing the cream into my skin very gently. Once I saw how little product he used while explaining the technology behind the products, I realized that this small tube would last for months. The eye gel felt a little cooling to my skin, which I found very pleasant. He then applied about a pea size of the foundation to my face, again lightly dabbing it all over my face as compared to spreading it. This was then followed by a little blush to each cheek. It took this man all of 3 minutes to apply all the products to my face and I couldn't imagine that it would have made any difference in my appearance. When he handed me the mirror, I almost fell off my chair. Not only did my skin feel delicious, soft and somewhat firmer almost instantly, I looked at least 10 years younger. I have never seen any products work so quickly and produce such striking results. My skin looked smooth, even toned, firmer, any fine lines seemed to simply disappear and to top it all off, this product will stay on your face, never needing to be reapplied throughout the course of the day. Even in the rain, it won't fade off until you're ready to take it off.I accidentally fell asleep that evening wearing my make up, something I try to avoid at all costs. But when I woke up the following morning, I was shocked to see that the make up looked just as perfect and fresh as it did when first applied the day before. As it turned out, the man who had assisted me the evening of the event was Richard Anderson, owner and creator of all the perfekt products. He is not a make up artist(he's a salesman) yet he was able to perfectly apply the make up to my face in less than 3 minutes. My point is that Richard created these products mindful of the fact that regular folk don't have their own personal make up artists who apply their make up daily. He created this line so the average woman could apply them easily, quickly and perfectly, as compared to the 30 or so minutes a day it takes the average woman to apply her make up. Even though these products come in small containers, they truly last for months. If you figure the price in regards to how long they last, they're actually a bargain. I haven't been as excited about any skincare or cosmetic product in a long time as I am about the Perfekt line. Not only does the perfekt products work instantly to rid your face of fine lines, over time, the results will become more permanent and prevalent. I have always been on an endless search for the perfect skincare products that would erase the ravages of time from my face as well as prevent further damage. But after trying Perfekt, I have finally found the Fountain of Youth. The products in the Perfekt line are worth every penny and then some. The tubes last forever if applied correctly and the packaging makes them easy and neat to store or transport. You really get a bang for your buck and even if your face gets wet, or you sweat, the one thing you can always count on is your make up will remain perfect. It won't smear or fade,and will remain perfectly intact until you're ready to remove it yourself.What more could you possibly want from skincare/make up products? Once you've achieved perfection, there's no place to go from there. I'm now a Perfekt Devotee for life. Why mess with Perfektion!!!!!

Fabulous AND Flawless
When primers first became popular, I tried a few and wasn't impressed. My skin, which is generally blemish free, started breaking out,my skin seemed to get very dry during the course of the day causing my foundation to crack and peel, which was not the kind of image I was trying to portray. I also tend to have very sensitive skin, allergic to many products. One day,I was shopping in Bloomingdales when one of the kind make up artists from the Prescriptives counter lured me into her make up chair. The minute she put the primer on my face, it had a cool refreshing sensation that felt more like a moisturizer than anything else. When she applied the foundation, not only did it glide on and blend so easily but she only used a small amount. To my surprise, the coverage was complete, truly flawless. I left ecstatic but the true test was yet to come. How would it wear for an entire day? Upon arriving home after a busy day of running around, I was almost afraid to look in the mirror. But to my surprise, my foundation looked as perfect as it did when she first applied it. The price was surprisingly inexpensive as well. You really get a bang for your buck since only a small amount is needed. Thus, the tube goes a long way. This primer should be a staple in every woman's beauty regime, regardless of age. It might not be the fountain of youth, but it comes pretty close.

I've tried every tooth whitener on the market with minimal improvement. After hearing so many friends rave about Go-Smile, I finally decided to try it. I was shocked. This has been the ONLY tooth whitener that didn't make my teeth painfully sensitive and I was easily able to complete the 14 day cycle. The results were startling, better than whiteners from dentist's offices, and better than advertised by the company. The price does seem steep, which is what kept me from trying this product sooner. However, it's money well spent. You can have the most beautiful skin, eyes, hair...but a beautiful bright smile, allows you to stand out in a crowd. The results are long lasting but personally, I like to use the refresher ampoules several times a week for upkeep. This product is worth every penny. No pain and lots of gain. And lastly, each application comes in a small disposable ampoule that makes it so convenient for travel and is easy to apply with no mess,perfect for today's busy, multi tasking woman. An added bonus is the sweet, minty flavor that keeps your breath fresh throughout the day.

Eyelashes that go on and on and on!!!!!
The Prescriptives mascaras are wonderful but the lash builder, gives all those who are eyelash challenged lashes that will be envied by all that see her. No expensive lash growers are needed, takes only a few seconds to apply and the look is immediate. It lasts until it's removed with makeup remover, and makes you feel sexier than ever before. Even my boyfriend, who rarely notices even when I've had major haircut, couldn't stop staring at my eyes and telling me that he never noticed how beautiful my eyes were. You will be noticed if you wear this lash builder. It's worked for me.

Create your own Look
This lipgloss has all the qualities of their regular lipgloss plus the benefit of the customer having the opportunity to mix and match colors to come up with the perfect color for them. I can't tell you how many times I've had to buy 2 lipglosses or lipsticks and wear one over the other to get the color I'm looking for. This custom blend eliminates all that. Not only do you get exactly what you want, you save all that money by not having to buy 2 of everything to get your look.

No more Tugging and Pulling for the sake of beauty
I have used eyeliners forever. I used to dread all the tugging, skipping and pulling on my eyes, fearing premature wrinkles and loss of elasticity. This soft eyeliner feels like butter when applied. It's soft,gives a precise even line, doesn't smudge, and the color VOID, which is a beautiful Green, is to die for. I'll never use any other eyeliners except Prescriptives because nothing can beat them.

A Staple For Every Women's Skin Regimen
This brush is a staple to every woman's make up bag. The bristles are soft and the brush is designed to get into those corners by the eyes and nose to evenly spread the foundation, giving you a flawless complexion. I haven't found any other brush which did the job anywhere as well.

This is probably my most favorite lip gloss I've ever tried and I think I've tried them all. What makes this gloss unique is besides the beautiful shine, texture and non stickiness, the color seems to bounce off the beams of the sun giving off different shades as you move your head. It's a must have or at the very least, a must try.

A MUST HAVE!!!!!
I've been using eyeliner for years but the Moonbeam Reflective is by far, the best I've ever tried. I love it so much that I had to buy it in every color except silver. I'll get that one too when I have the money to spend. The pencils go on the eyelid like butter, no tugging or pulling. And there is a touch of shine or color burst with every movement of your head. It almost looks like you used a multi toned eye pencil. Personally, I like to use 2 or 3 of the eye pencils together, particularly the green, which is my favorite, and the brown. The application takes seconds to apply and has a wonderful smudge free staying power. The price is on the cheaper end of the high brand cosmetics. So if you really want to call attention to your beautiful peepers, this a a must have.
