My Top 5 ...

1) Clinique's Dramatically Different Moisturizer

Step 3 of the their cleansing routine, this moisturizer is silky, REALLY does melt right into your skin without an iota of residue, has a neutral smell (no perfumes), is hypoallergenic, and makes my skin very soft.

2) LancĂ´me's DĂ©finicils mascara (Waterproof) in black

This mascara makes my lashes clump-free, long, flirty, thicker, and has a beautiful colour. Plus, I prefer the waterproof for the winter, when the cold makes my eyes tear up, and in the summer, when I sweat.

3) Avon's Nurtura Replenishing Cream

This is a rich cream that I use on my face before going to bed...you wake up with baby soft skin in the morning. Plus, the smell is out of this world....like candy.
4) Lush's Lemony Flutter (cuticle butter)

You can never beat organically made, natural products. This cream makes my cuticles and nails beautiful and strong, and the smell is lemony great. I use it twice a day usually.

5) Lush's Karma Cream (moisturizing cream)

This cream is downright sinful. The smell is beautiful...I don't even know how to describe it...but you will be hooked. Lush (the store) has all kinds of Karma products, like this cream, a perfume, a body powder (I believe), ...and some other product... but the cream is full of yummy, natural products, and make my skin really soft...I especially love it after taking a bath or coming out of the shower.

I hope this helps!

Products I Love

1. Glimmersticks lip liner from Avon in Perfect Plum. Will go with just about any lipstick, stays on well, and really defines your lips. Doesn't bleed at all.

2. Smashbox Photofinish gel. You put it on under your makeup and it makes your face feel smooth and luscious. Makeup stays on much better and lasts longer in the day. Skin also feels generally smoother over time, even when bare.

3. Stick-on nail colour from Avon. Comes in colours, and in three French manicure shades. Goes on in a flash, protects your nails, and lasts well over a week. Use Genie nail polish remover for gel nails to remove, though.

4. Maybelline mousse foundation. Goes on creamy and has really good coverage. Keeps your face from looking shiny. Also comes in lots of shades so it is fairly easy to match to your skin tone.

5. Perfect 10 hair colour. Just new out, but it really only takes 10 minutes to do (15 minutes for colour-resistant grey).

All by Nutri-Metics: Specific Care moisture balance lotion, Restore Eye Creme, Nutri-Rich oil, Active Body moisturizer (I never have dry skin in Winnipeg Winter despite being a swimmer).

And for hair, Physique curling gel. Soooo bitter it was discontinued. Best stuff ever for my curly/wavy hair...

1. MAC Studio Fix pressed powder - amazing stuff. This is the finest, smoothest powder I've ever used. No foundation necessary. Use by itself for everyday or over some tinted moisturizer for a flawless finish.

2. Clinique Supder Defense Moisturizer - SPF 30. I second the recommendation of the previous poster. This stuff literally disappears into your skin and gives you a wonderful smooth base for makeup application. I have greasy, sensitive skin which is easily aggravated by most moisturizers. This has helped regulate oil production which was a shocker to me - I started using it because I was getting more active and wanted the SPF protection. Now I couldn't live without it. My skin has really cleared up and evened up and I believe daily use of this product is one of the big reasons why.

3. Dianne Brill Lip Longerie - it's the most lucious lip gloss ever. Contains lots of conditioners and vitamins and leaves lips silky smooth. Better than chapstick, long-lasting as lipstick and love the colors.

4. Prestige eye shadows - love the individual metallic colors and to my surprise they wore and wore and wore. Very little creasing and stayed on all day.

5. Physician's Formula - blusher/brozer/eye shadow metallic strips. It's kinda hard to describe but PP has this compact that consists of varying shades of gold-to-copper colored powder that you can use as a bronzer (I use for blush) or eye shadow. Either pick one shade or swipe your brush across for a mixture. Love the las Vegas one! It really give my face a subtle, healthy glow without 2 obvious pink stripes on my cheeckbones. Doesn't have the greatest staying power as eyeshadow though, but great for an evening.

Honorable Mention: Clinique's Angel Red lipstick which is the most perfect, flattering red for us ivory-skinned types (aka: deathly pallor). Makes your skin look warm not corpse-like :-)

Philosophy's Makeup Option Skin Care, it a 5 part system but I don't use the cleanser. Instead I use DHC oil free makeup remover and their cleanser. Awesome stuff. Been using it for 2 years now and my face has never looked so good. Its flawless and I always get asked what I use.
