  • Philosophy Big Mouth

    Expensive and hardly worth it. It tastes pretty badly and I didn't notice much of a plumping effect. I got the nude shade, which was sheer but almost a yellowish peach ~ not flattering at all. Won't repurchase.

  • Jonathan Product Dirt Texturizing Paste

    I have long (mid back), fine and color treated hair and this stuff works great for me...especially when my hair is too soft from heavy conditioning treatments. It adds body, a bit of shine and great texture. It does build up easily but I use a clarifying shampoo. I also dislike the texture of the product - it feels a but gummy until it warms up. I do like it!

  • MAC Dazzleglass

    MAC Dazzleglass

    On the Fence...

    I like it, I don't love it. I splurge and buy MAC every now and again and I love nude lips, especially nude sexy lips that stand out...but this may be too much. It is glittery - multi colored glittery. Not shimmery...but glitter. It is very sheer but looks nice with some smoky eyes. It's very sticky (most LG's are anyway) however it is longer wearing than most. It isn't a daily wear for me personally but I have worn it on occasion at night paired with a nude lip liner for when I play up my eyes. I just cannot completely decide if I love this or not. The glitter really thoorws me off - if it was more subtle, or at least not multicolored, I may enjoy this way more.

  • bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation

    I wore Bare Minerals for awhile as I loved the way my skin felt without heavy foundations. I realized their formulations made my face look dusty and older. Not a look I enjoy so much! The concept is great and I love the fact it has an SPF...however I just don't like their foundation. It doesn't suit me at all and just looks like I poufed matte powder on my face and ran out the door - not flawless, not natural, just chalky and unflattering.

  • MAC Mineralize Skinfinish

    I bought this about a month ago and don't regret it one bit. It is the perfect setting powder and light foundation! I am 33, have combo/dry skin and am a NW20 and I got this in medium. I use this over liwuid foundation or alone over concealer by buffing lightly with a Kabuki brush. It makes my skin look fresh and flawless, without looking like I have alot of make up on. My one gripe is that it cannot go in my purse as it breaks apart - so once I am done with it for the day I am done (no touch ups). It is a dewy finish, not shimmery really, more glowy. I adore this product and wish it was just a bit more portable.

    the Balm timeBalm Concealer

    One of my Faves

    I have undereye circles from general lack of good sleep as I have a 9 month old. This works great at covering them up and not drying out the delicate skin. I get the Light/Medium shade which matches me skin tone well - it is a warm color and I have pinky undertones but for some reason that makes a great match up. It is seamless and does need to be set with a powder as it may crease a bit. I despise the sponge it comes with - it feel apart into a million little pieces after a while (however it was hard to deal with anyway). Now I just use a q-tip or my pinky. It also doesn't accentuate any fine lines - in fact it is supposed to help with them. I am not sure if it does but I no longer have any fine lines (but I use a ton of products). I never go anywhere without this concealer! I look awake, refreshed and back from the dead. :) A must have!

    Ole Henriksen Pure Perfection

    Great For Wintertime

    I love this - especially now that we are heading into the cold winter months. It is a heavy, thicker cream and you only need a little bit. I like the fact this is also suitable for use underneath my eyes as with an infant I don't have alot of time. It feels silky on, maybe a bit greasy but it is a night cream. I wake up to fresh and glowy skin! I have been using it for a about 8 months now, taking a couple humid months off, but now I am back and it hydrates my skin beyond belief. It is expensive (my one gripe!) but again you only use a bit, a jar lasts me about two months. It is worth it for the 30+ gals like me that are trying to prevent aging.

  • Mitchum Powder Fresh Clear Gel For Women

    I wore this in the 115 degree heat in Arizona and I stayed smelling fresh and dry - that sold it for me. Now back in the midwest this is still the only deodorant I will buy! It does feel a bit gloopy when you first apply it but after it dries it is clear and you are good to go. It does work so well you can 'skip a day'!

  • Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer

    Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer

    Liked It - Didn't Love It

    I bought one (champagne) and it far from complimented my fair-medium cool skin. It was way to frosty on me. I love Burts Bees besswax lip balm and it is a staple of mine, but the lip shimmer didn't do it for me. I don't think they are nearly as moisturizing as the regular balms are and it actually made my lips feel a bit waxy. I won't repurchase.
