  • Nars Blush
    10.0

    Nars Blush

    My go-to blush

    Although I'm not a fan of Orga*m (the color just isn't right for my way-pale skin), Sin (perversely, it's darker than Orga*m but looks more natural on me) is my absolute all-time favorite blush. It has enough shimmer to not look flat or chalky, but it doesn't *look* shimmery (shimmer can be tough for skin over 35). Nars blushes without fail go on more evenly

  • Garnier Skin Renew Daily Regenerating Lotion SPF 15

    Although I've only been using this for a week or so, this has already become my new favorite day lotion. The texture is nice

  • Yves Saint Laurent Beauty Touche Éclat Radiant Touch

    Although I really wanted to love this (especially given what I paid for it), this just didn't do it for me. While I didn't expect major coverage by any means, this just seemed to do *nothing* not even highlight (although I'm so pale that perhaps it just blended in too much withe my regular skin tone?).

    Samy Big Curls Curl Defining Creme

    Shockingly good for fat, soft curls

    I'm ashamed to admit that I'm biased against drugstore brand haircare (curly hair is tough to deal with

    M2 Skin Care M2 Skin Refinish 20%

    It does what it says it will do!

    Possibly one of the most effective skincare products I've ever used. I've been using it for about a month now (my skin is pretty resilient, so I use it just about nightly)

  • Rene Furterer Styling Gel
    2.0

    Rene Furterer Styling Gel

    Didn't do much for me.

    I wanted to like this, but frankly, it just didn't do a whole lot for me, whether I tried wearing my hair curly (its natural state) or blow drying it; the hold was fine, but I got quite a bit of frizz no matter what I tried. Obviously, with hair products YMMV like you read about, though, so I'm sure this must work well for someone!

  • Conair Infiniti Hair Designer Straightener

    My hair is shoulder length, curly/wavy & I never bother with straightening it, mainly because I don't have time to blow dry & then iron it but also because I haven't got the motor skills to do it properly. This works like a charm! It's fast & leaves me with nice body (my face is too round to go for stick-straight flat hair) & no frizz or poufiness as long as I slap something like Jonathan's Silky Dirt into it afterward. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!

  • Blinc Kiss Me Mascara
    10.0

    Blinc Kiss Me Mascara

    Best. Mascara. EVER.

    Love this mascara! My lashes are already quite thick, so I'm not too concerned with thickening, but this does a great job nonetheless without giving me that Shirley McLaine clumpy lash effect (which is swell on her, but not so much for me). It's perfect for frequent travelers, as it comes right off (in fun little spider leg dealios, no less) with warm water, although perversely enough water (crying, swimming, whatever) doesn't cause it to come off, smudge or run on its own; it stays put until you want it gone.

  • Astara Violet Flame Enzyme Mask
    10.0

    Astara Violet Flame Enzyme Mask

    Love love love this!

    This is definitely in my top 5 masks; it's completely non-irritating (although my skin isn't terribly sensitive) & my skin feels amazingly smooth and has a nice bright glow after using it.

  • bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation
    2.0

    bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation

    Beautiful finish & coverage, but it breaks me out.

    This is one of those products that I return to periodically because I *love* the cosmetic aspect of it (beautiful, natural finish, the perfect amount of coverage, easy to use) but every time I try, I break out with those deep, painful zits. If they could make this without the mica (which I'm 99% sure is the offending ingredient), this would be perfect.
