Pretty color, lightweight feel but not very moisturizing
I really do like the fairly new L'Oreal Colour Riche Colour Caresse, but I thought it could be a tad more moisturizing and longer lasting. I tried out Cherry Tulle, which is more of a berry color than a red shade, but still very pretty. It's really nice during the daytime since it looks very polished but still more natural than full coverage lipstick. It went on slightly sheer and the shine was more luminous than glossy, which I like. Too much gloss and I look like I have drool out of the corners of my mouth! The staying power was so-so and left a faint stain. I've been wearing a little lip balm under it and it's near perfect.

I've used Tre Semme's other dry shampoo that's more like a foam and when it was out, I decided to try this dry shampoo instead. While it did refresh my hair in terms of smell and gave it more body, I didn't like the matte finish at all and kind of tacky feel on my hair. Ugh! I thought it made my hair just look dirtier. I have naturally very dark brown hair, almost black. It might just work on someone with lighter hair but I won't be using this again. You could really see the ill effect when I used it on my bangs. I followed the directions to a T, too. I'm going back to the other foamy dry shampoo, which works pretty good.

A Must In My Makeup Bag
I've used this foundation for almost ten years now and I swear by it! First of all, it does a great job of a concealer and I don't need a separate product to hide the monstrous dark circles under my eyes. Second, I don't need powder either since my skin is pretty dry but this leaves a nice matte-ish finish that's still dewy and soft, yet defined. It's got great coverage but not too much where you look like you've got a mask on, and it blends well and stays set nearly all day. I always get compliments on my skin and this is one of my secrets. My other secret is to use a little of a good BB cream under this for perfect, luminous skin. Since this product is moisturizing, it doesn't get cakey and chalky. I'm 36 and people tell me my skin looks easily a decade younger, so the more moisturizing, the better! And it has SPF, which also keeps me looking baby-faced! Done and done!

I am a fan of any makeup I can swipe on in the car before heading to work because, well, I'm lazy and would rather sleep in. I thought this would be a good product to include in my stash of quick beauty fixes, but I think not. They glide on like a dream and come in great colors, but when I used the brown-black one as a liner, not only did it fade, it slid down my mug. It only stays put after you put eyeshadow on top of it to seal it but that kinda defeats the purpose of a quickie beauty fix. I'll use it when I have more time than, say, one minute or two to do my makeup. If it isn't long wearing, then I seriously doubt its waterproof claims.

Sumptuous natural lip balm
I love these little smooth spheres of joy! They are great since they're made from all natural ingredients and even the case is made from recycled materials. The sphere is nice and chunky, very smooth and nice to touch plus it's really easy to find in my bag. The lip balm itself is slightly sweet and comes in an array of flavors, my favorites being the strawberry and lemon ones. I especially like using them at night before I go to bed and wake up with super soft and smooth lips, which is no easy feat for dry lips like mine! They're pretty cheap too, especially when they're buy one get one half off at Ulta and paired with their coupons! I like to wear mine under lipsticks too to boost the moisture. Great value for such a great product.

Affordable healthy luxury
Ah, this is my favorite shower gel ever, and believe you me, I've tried quite a few! I really like the fact that these are made with all-natural ingredients, but their lather and incredible moisture just feel so dang luxurious in my shower! I've even been known to take a regal soak in the tub with these. So far, I've had the Jasmine and the Citrus Basil, and I love them both. I also tried a nutmeggy holiday one that I can't remember the name of. The Jasmine is quite sensual and relaxing, for a nice little wink from my husband! I like the Citrus Basil first thing in the morning for an eye opener before sprinting off to work. And, TMI, but these seem to be very PH-balanced and gentle for the lady parts. Score! I watch Sephora's on-line sales and TJ Maxx like a hawk for these to save on them, but the large bottle at $19 is still an affordable luxury. I love the way my spirits are lifted and my skin is smooth every time I use them. Will keep buying until infinity!
