    Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair

    Doesn't Live up to the hype

    For all of the ads and the high cost, this is a decent skin moisturizer. It doesn't repair damage or work to repair the present state of your skin.

  • Mary Kay Satin Hands Hand Cream

    Mary Kay Satin Hands Hand Cream

    Lightweight but powerful

    This isn't greasy or heavy, but it softens skin continuously when used with the exfoliating beads. My husband always steals mine. Love the scent of this as well.

  • Mary Kay Peach Satin Hands Satin Smoothie Hand Scrub

    The beads are gentle enough to use on your hands, elbows, and feet. They leave skin as soft as a baby's, with a great aroma.

  • Almay Intense i-Color Shimmer-i kit

    I have very sensitive skin. Not only don't I have to worry about irritation, but the colors are nicely coordinated to make your own eye color pop.

  • Sephora + Pantone Universe Alchemy of Color Eye Shadow Palette

    I bought this on sale as well and find the colors beautiful. They do stay in place and blend very well. I highly recommend.

  • Yves Saint Laurent Beauty Touche Éclat Radiant Touch

    The skin under my eyes is often dark and is really thin. The lightweight formula not only covers circles but does it in a way that my skin is not harmed. Love this product, despite the price.

  • Buxom Lash Mascara

    Buxom Lash Mascara

    Great for Volume AND Length

    This delivers on its promises. I'm happy with it. I'll still use other mascaras as well, but it's great.

  • Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer

    Love the colors and the scent. Hate the fact that I have to reapply continually. Can't they make it longer-lasting?

  • Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15

    This is a great lip balm. I am a huge fan of the smell and the feel, but I wish it weren't so expensive. This loses points for price.

  • LORAC Greatest Hits Palette CD

    LORAC Greatest Hits Palette CD

    Absolute Palette PERFECTION!

    I began reviewing cosmetics for Lorac for another site many years ago. Their items were quite different then, but still the great quality they are now--perhaps even better. This "Greatest Hits CD" contains, as stated, some of Lorac's best-ever achievements and comes in two shade combinations--the one shown is in hues of crème, gold, brown, and black; another is available in tones of pink, plum, blue, and grey. All of the items in these palettes blend flawlessly for a subtle or dramatic look, perfect for day or evening. Two items are absolutely outstanding in this particular one: The tender powder blush in "Soul" is becoming to just about every complexion possible. It's completely sheer on the skin and applies seamlessly, but gives a beautiful glow. Years ago, it was akin to Nars' famed blush shade (can't say it here, but you are aware of what I am speaking). My all-time favorite Lorac creation is the red-brown lip and cheek tint (once available in a pot of its own, and I had one stashed everywhere!). It is an incredibly gorgeous hue, once more appropriate for all skin tones. A little goes a long way for a natural but seductive flush. It has stayed on me for up to twelve hours in an amusement park--through water rides, heat, and sweat. Don't pass this gem by--it is available at eBay for around $15.00. Talk about bargains!
