    Jan Marini Skin Research C-ESTA Perfection Treatment Foundation

    A great foundation that I've used (light shade)

    I wore this at an over 40 birthday party. The pics came out with me looking about 25. It goes on nicely and looks great. Once again, I stress that you need to know your shade range. It can look slightly darker in the tube but go on nicely and give you a bit of extra color. This is good makeup. It's a liquid foundation and part of the C-ESTA line from Jan Marini.

  • Jane Iredale Lip Colour

    I use Sarah along with the lip plump. It's a matter of choosing the right color for yourself and whatever type of look you want. I find Jane Iredale enhances what you already have. Everyone's lips can look better with the right care - keeping them smooth, exfoliating and using a good lip plumper. Jane Iredale has excellent products.

    LORAC Losta Lip Plumping Lipstick

    Not much of a lip plumper

    It just isn't. I like a slight enhancement and this doesn't even give that. Lip Venom by Do Wop is a very good lip plumper but my favorite and the best I've ever used is Jane Iredale's lip plumper. There is no better than that one. Getting back to this - no big deal.

    CoverGirl Cheekers Blush

    Is that awful noxema smell out of it Yet?

    The colors are pretty and I'd use it except the last time I purchased it it stunk from that awful skin cream.

  • L'Oreal Paris True Match Concealer

    L'Oreal Paris True Match Concealer

    The best I've ever used

    I have found many concealers to be drying. This one is very good. The secret with this brand and probably others is to find a color that matches as best as possible. This one works for me.

  • Caudalie Contouring Concentrate

    This is a great skin product for below the neck. I used it on my abdomen and stomach and it firmed everything up within a few weeks. I'm not crazy about the bottle or the packaging, or the push down button. In fact I had trouble getting out the last fourth of the container. This would be better in a nice round shorter bottle with a long, thin plastic nozzle. Packaging has to go but the product is very good.

  • Aveda Hang Straight

    Aveda Hang Straight

    Issues with the salons that sell Aveda - be prepared

    My hair used to be very dry and frizzy before I began getting trims every month and changing my diet and adding supplements. However, whenever I walked into an Aveda salon where they sell it, and this happened to me in about 5 places, I'd be insulted before I even asked about anything. One saleswoman, the owner, I believe, told me I had "ethnic hair". I said well, my ancestors come from the British Isles, look at Nicole Kidman, Minnie Driver, among others. Other Aveda salons have had salespeople touch my hair and say "so damaged" or "so frizzy". They are not being helpful. My hair is beautiful today, no thanks to them. As for the product, it's OK. You have to get the right thing for yourself. Some of it can be too heavy, and some of it (like the clove shampoo) can make your bathtub a mess although staining isn't permanent. It's good stuff, but for the money, I would get the same and actually better, results from Nature's Gate Herbal Rainwater Shampoo & Conditioner (the original). The price is better, the smell is lovely and hair comes out soft and silky. Still, Aveda isn't bad. I would use it again if the salespeople developed some class.

  • Anastasia Brow Enhancing Serum
    10.0

    Anastasia Brow Enhancing Serum

    My brows are stunning thanks to this product

    It's cool and soothing and tames brows but more than that, it enhances the natural color of the brows, makes them healthy and grow in as much as they can. I had an operation as an infant and hair wouldn't grow in that spot. It did when I used Nu Brow. My brows are an asset that make me look younger and I think it's the color that is doing it. They are naturally dark brown and for some reason, they just look very healthy and full. I use this product twice a day now for months. The arch and length of each brow match the other, whereas before I couldn't tell where the arch was supposed to be. This is one of the best, most progressive products I've ever used.

  • Fresh Face Luster

    Fresh Face Luster

    A little goes a long way for a sunlit glow

    It's a matter of knowing the shades and what undertones go best with your coloring, and knowing which product has the right stuff to give you the result. You need to ask - shop online with a strong light or call the site for their feedback. If the consistency isn't right, you can take a little and mix it with moisturizer. Start with a very light application. This product is really nice and will give you a beautiful soft glowing look. You can always call the company or the site where you got it and tell them if you're having a problem and they will exchange or take it back. Sometimes you get a bad apple from the bunch. Overall rating: Very good

  • Murad Firm and Tone Serum
    4.0

    Murad Firm and Tone Serum

    Sorry, overpriced and overrated

    I have tried and used all these products. The vitamin C firming cream is the best and you will see some kind of result from regular use, twice a day. The scrub is nothing unusual. You can find scrubs elsewhere, and Caudalie has a great scrub as do other products that stimulate the circulation and exfoliate. The anti-cellulite serum does nothing but tingle and maybe slightly tighten but it is very pricey and you have to use it constantly along with the rest of the "program". Not worth it. While I like Dr. Murad's skincare lines for the face and the C firming body cream, I wouldn't be bothered with this again. Dr. Murad is correct with his diagnosis of what cellulite is. It is fat that is trapped underneath skin that has been damaged by dehydration and is a connective tissue problem. All the diets and gyms in the world cannot correct this. The only way to correct it is to deal with the outer skin as though it were facial skin, such as body masques and treatments, moisturizing, drinking pure water and taking supplements that will keep the skin moist from the inside. You can't "flush" cellulite out. It's right under the skin. Moisture, massage, and supplements can hellp. You can use a good loofa in the shower. Seaweed is a very good product for smoothing body skin.
