They basically don't see the light of day unless they're currently in "heavy rotation," but even then, I keep those in a drawer in the bathroom. I can't remember the last fragrance I had go bad on me. Actually, now that I think of it, the only fragrance-esque thing I've ever had go bad was a small bottle of Bath & Body Works original Freesia splash--it smelled like pure alcohol, but by that point, I'd had it for probably 13 years or more. None of my other splashes have "turned" in the slightest, and I've never had a perfume/cologne go nasty on me.

Thanks!
You know how a primer primes the wall when you paint, well that is what shadow primer does. It evens the pallet so to speak. I like Urban Decay it is only 16.00 but even though that seems reasonable there is really very little product in the container. It is very deceptive.

If you can get it at Costco or BJ's b/c they are cheaper for the two pack and they usually give you an extra like a bar of Cetephil soap in the pack. I like that too it keeps my skin from drying out.

Speaking of drying out has anyone tried the Fresh brown sugar body scrub? It is great however it is very expensive. It is 65 a jar. Fortunately a friend has given it to me as a gift on two occasions otherwise there is no way I would spend that on body scrub.

I like the Too Faced one. They had a sample mini in that (did you guys ever go get that set I talked about? The mascara, shadow, lipgloss and min primer in that cute pink bag??)

Anyways - that mini lasted me a long time. So I got the big tube and I really love it.

Yes, cheermom, you have to buy it online. I tried so many different products for my puffy eyes and with my son's pending wedding I kept trying different items (and not being happy) decided to try Revitalume!! I am very happy with the results. Yes, a tad bit pricey but a better deal when you select the free option and are then enrolled in their rewards program.

Here are my previous posts.

I like Clinique's Take the Day Off, but it is a liquid and they are messier to me than the pads. Works well, though, no irritation and I don't know how much it costs because it was in a combo pack I bought.

Don't laugh, but, if you really want to save bucks, you know what I found works great? Pamper's Sensitive baby wipes (in fragrance free if you can find them)! They are soft, get the mascara off and feel like they aren't tearing at my eyelids. That one came from being a new mom and running out of remover and being desperate! 72 for around $3.50. I use these in conjunction with the Clinique stuff to wipe it off because it's softer than a cotton pad or tissue.

Ok, another question, what is the best eye cream to get rid of puffy eyes immediately? Have used Garnier Nutrisse, Clinique Just for Eyes, and Loreal double lift in the past few months. Not as good as Avon's eye gel in the orange pot that they've stopped making!!! I will trade a few wrinkles if someone can depuff my eyes--it's making me look old!!!
TO depuff eyes use Patricia Wexler available at Bath and Body and on line also at Sephora I think. If you go to B and B ask them for a sample or just buy it try it and if you do not like it bring it back they will take it back no questions asked.

Yes - totally.

You know, I never realized how much Too Faced I used, until this thread. I really like that brand. I dont think they get enough talk time, IMO.

I have to say - does anyone own Stila - Kitten shadow? It's awfully nice. I had been looking for a long time for a shadow that almost appeared wet?? Does anyone know what I mean?

Stila Kitten does. It's a phenomenal highlighter. Just fabulous.

Is it pricey? Have you tried it and do you like the results? I mean I love what the Revitalume is doing for me, really love it. BUT I really would love to buy something IN A STORE that works!!!!!!!! I have been hearing more and more about Patricia Wexler as well as Trish McVoy(??) lines of make-up and beauty products!

For those who are asking about primer for eyeshadow... the key to using any kind of primer is to not use too much, otherwise, the shadow will end up doing exactly what you're trying to prevent... creasing.

One of the best ways to apply is to take a fluffy eyeshadow brush (MAC brush #224 is a good one) and take a tiny bit of MAC paint (if that's your primer of choice) on the back of your hand, and work it into the brush. You only need a tiny, tiny bit... like smaller than a pea. Then use the "windshield wiper" motion across your lids to apply. It will apply a very thin, even, sheer layer. Then apply your shadow(s) as normal. If your pressed for time, you can also use your finger to apply. Just touch your finger to the primer to make just a dot on your finger, and rub on your lid. Make sure when applying you cover the entire lid from inner corner to outer corner and up to just above the crease (don't go all the way to the brow bone).

And when using MAC Paints as primer, don't be afraid to experiment. For example, use Canton Candy paint when applying pink shades of shadow, it will make the colors really pop.

The other thing I REALLY like about Mineral makeup - is when you take pictures, the flash doesnt reflect off your face - and make you look like a ghost. Anyone else notice that?




I love the Too Faced mascara. It took some getting used to - but now Im hooked. Ill admit that initially I was like "ehhh - I dont know if I like this" - but the staying power is amazing. No smears or anything. And your lashed can REALLY be built up with it.

Ill admit Im a makeup snob when it comes to mascara. Ive never tried the Maybelline one.



Like I said - I bow down before you because of that. I dont even think I would have been able to think straight for weeks, after that happening!

I have never used that iron. Have you checked like makeup alley or anything for reviews?

Sometimes I think youre best going with what you KNOW works - a CHI.



Totally. Nothing at all like NARS blush. I have Outlaw, Orgasm & Deep Throat. I also REALLY like Too Faced's bronzers. They have a set of 3, around xmas - had all 3 of them in there. I love that thing.

Im a snob with shampoo and cond. too. I wont use anything NOT salon brand. So, although I have tried that Fekkai smoothing stuff, I havent used the S & C.

Im using Redken All Soft - Goldwell Kerasilk - TiGi Moisture Maniac & Chi's line, right now (yeah - I switch a lot)

And I also use Sunglitz's pigmented shampoo, mixed in with whatever shampoo I'm using (it's SO concentrated) But I use the blue and purple - to keep my blonde from getting brassy.



YAY!!



What did you think of the Garnier one? Ive never used one, and was thinking about trying it.


I use perfume everyday. So, none of them have ever gotten bad. And when I get sick of them - they become air fresheners. LOL! Expensive air fresheners.
I used the Garnier and really it was not good at all. I did not like it. As far as I could see it did nothing. I think it was about 14.00 and if I am heading down that path then I am going for a "luxury" brand as Ulta likes to call the non drug store brands.

That looks like something I would wear. I don't like a lot of the darker colors, but I love light pinky / peachy lip glosses.
