  • Borba Orbital Eye Rejuvenator

    Borba Orbital Eye Rejuvenator

    The greatest eye cream

    This is one of my all time fav eye creams. It's rich but does not make my eyes greasy or feel I have too much cream on. You can use it around the entire eye which is rare. Something happened to the entire Borba line. It's no longer available. There are some Borba products but not the line of skin care that this eye product was part of. I so wish it would come back.

  • Peter Thomas Roth Lips to Die For

    Peter Thomas Roth Lips to Die For

    This trio is a HOME RUN HIT

    I love this trio of lip products...they work and I have 59 year old lips. I have good skin and take good care of my skin. But my lips are what is showing off my age more then other parts of my face. They are fading and getting very thin. I also need to chronically put on lip balms to hydrate my lips or they peal something terrible. This trio has healed my lips, keeps them in good shape and I don't ever want to be without the To Die For Pink Bombshell Balm! It's like no other lip balm I ever have used. It also STAYS on for hours and hours. I can even put it on a night & wake up in the AM with it STILL ON!

  • Peter Thomas Roth Power Rescue Facial Firming Lift

    I am really critical on what I consider good skin care and what is worth spending my $ on. I found this product to be amazing. It gives me a feeling of circulation is improving to the skin surface immediately which I think is how come I see a glow from using it both immediately and long term. While I have used a # of firming/lift skin care products, this one really is one that delivers. I do like a # of the PTR line products, but not all of them most certainly that are made for my skin type/needs. I am sure this is expensive to make, but gosh, if ONLY the price could come down a little on this it would help me keep using it. However, with that said, it takes VERY LITTLE of this product daily to get results. I switched from my former lift product which was Dr. Perricone Neuropeptide Facial contour. I liked that former product a whole lot. So for me to replace it with something that costs the same but does not last me as long per container is really going a MILE when it comes to my own spending choices on skin care. I also really like that the entire PTR line TELLS you what is in it as far as the active ingredients. I do get a bit upset when promises are made by lines such as Dr. Perricone, yet there is little to no reveal as to what is in it and certainly not %'s of. Peter Thomas Roth is right up front telling you what neruopeptides (and other ingredients) & percentages used where relevant. He is not so exclusive or concerned of copy cats that he does not give the consumer info we have a right to know. Buy this from a company that you can use it for 30 days and return it if you do not like it. That way if it's not for you, you can return it.

  • Urban Decay Matte Eyeshadow

    Urban Decay Matte Eyeshadow

    My FAV eyeshadow

    The UD matte eye shadows are fabulous. They took an old category of eye shadows and turned the formulation into a modern today look that is easy as pie to use. Even if the colors look strong in the pot, they are all workable from very soft to high drama. These have replaced almost all of my other zillion eye shadows I was using. I get compliments on not my eye makeup but how nice I look. I know some of the really powdery high shimmers are not for me despite I still don't have crepy eye lids. Mine are still fine. However, those fine lines show up no matter how good of condition your eyes are, if you get the wrong shades or too heavy a hand. You will adore the NOW look the UR matte shadows give. I have been using them since they came out about 3 years ago. I revel in the addition of new shades - but of course I have some of my favs. #1 shade fav of mine is Heist, a very wonderful (as in perfect) mauve that has the right brown and gray to it and no red. I cannot wear any shadows (purples, browns esp that have even a tinge of red to them - I look like I have been crying). Everyone will find their fav shade. These blend well. But I find I use only one at a time typically. It's faster and the less IS more in this product. I even have been through one complete pot of a really neutral brown...and I never go through a full pot of any color product but for gloss/lipstick. I tired of them or the trend changes, I change. NOT with this line! Everyone needs to try and discover this wonderful product line!

  • bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation

    bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation

    Used to work - now I am older and dryer - leaves me chalk like often, dryer, and really shows my lines

    I need a dewier finish then this...esp if I have this on and then a dry power blush, my face looks flat! I can buff it in really seriously and work it in, but then I really loose the coverage it gives. I also am on the side of what a mess it makes in my sink and bath carpet, despite working over the sink and being very careful. I do think it's great for younger folks to learn to use makeup that is healthy for your skin. I do better in the mineral foundation category with Philosophy's version. Then also I need to use a cream blush to give me a glow. All my super great skin care products that do give my skin great condition, glow and youth, seem to be undone temp only, with a mineral finish. I am almost makeup optional with the skin care I use other then for eyes, cream blush and the BE natural lipsticks and BE natural gloss.

  • BareMinerals All-Over Face Color

    BareMinerals All-Over Face Color

    Bare Escentuals Flawless Radiance

    This is a GREAT product to add that 'red carpet' glow with the beloved BE product and not look over done for an every day look. The shade is a very light chiffon and is almost translucent imparting next to no color at all...just the glow. The glow is not fake, it's not high shimmer, with particles of gleaming flecks of glittery mica. It's a very fine milled product. You will find it great for the tops of your cheek bones up to your temples and up into the SIDE of your forehead areas....just those spots we all tend to see on the 'red carpet' faces and keep wondering what we can do to get that look! I've tried all the BE radiances and this one by far is the top ranking one. You can also use it to multi-task like many BE products. A touch of this over your eyeshadow (esp on the mid of the lid) pops the eye open like a tish of light gloss does to make your lips look like they are bigger. If buying ONLY one extra product to keep your makeup routine low maintenance, try this one. You will not be dissapointed. It will buff into all skin tones but for the extremely darkest skin colorings. It's one of the few products that works on even the fair to light complexions as well that tend to look like they have painted up like a clown with a lot of the products out there. You can also, with moderation, use it as an all over replacement for your mineral veil or even your foundation! Makes a great gift too...never had anyone I gave it to not love it!

  • Wen Fig Cleansing Conditioner

    Wen Fig Cleansing Conditioner

    I never have seen my hair more wonderful in all ways!

    I have to admit, it was hard to get over the no suds and how much was enough to use and yet not wasting my $ using more then it takes for me. My hair responded immediately and only got better over the past 2 years I have used it. I sometimes add a little Tea Tree with the Fig (as suggestion from the creator) to get my scalp really treated well rounded. But I am a true Fig Cleansing Conditioner user - that's the best one for me with really dry hair. I don't have to wash my hair for a good 5-7 days after using my WEN so it really saves me time - oh and I don't have an easy to style hair cut. But my hair cut just works so much better with use of WEN. If I get a little bed head look during my non shampoo days - then I just dunk my hair under the sink or use a sprayer with water in it on the parts that are funky - and blow dry. I need next to no hair spray and that for me is HUGE as I was a major hair spray diva! I just hope I can afford to keep using this product - and so sad that it's so frigging hard to get hold of! I don't like to have to pay the shipping via QVC and since the owner went to Informercials via Gunthey Rinker, I cannot order direct from his salon anymore (requirement of GR - they don't like competition - and the GR line up you have to go through to get into their program is not the formula I need/use and not the group of products I use). So come on...dump how hard it is to get it - This belongs in Sephora and all the top on line cosmetic sites! That's my only complaint...we need easier access to this wonderful product!
