DiorShow Extase Mascara Review

Being a lover of the original DiorShow mascara, I was intrigued by this and had to try it. Having tried the Blackout and Iconic and sadly was not too impressed with either, I had high hopes for this one. And I must say, I’m very pleased! It is exceptional in its lengthening ability and superb in thickening. The “tiered” brush reaches each and every lash to give plumpness and thickness for lashes that are up to 50% thicker and longer. What I found exceptional about this particular DiorShow was that it did not weigh down your lashes; they stayed curled all day, without flaking or smudging. And….this DiorShow has lash conditioning benefits, as it helps to repair damaged lashes as you are wearing it! Right now, it’s only available at for Beauty Insiders only, but it will be worth the wait! I give this one an A!

Clarins 'Gold Attraction' Eye Quartet & Liner Palette

The beautiful golden palaces of Venice and their facades with subtle colors and patinas, is the inspiration for this quartet.

A dark chocolate powder eyeliner intensifies any effect. All you need to create dramatic looks; or if you’re in a demure mood is in this palette. Add imagination and you are set for the Holidays!

First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream

With the dry winter months upon us, it’s the time of dry, itchy skin. It does not matter how much lotion and cream I put on, I can’t seem to make the moisture last all day! But no more! I heard the raves on this cream and had to try it. I am not sorry! Its non greasy and super light whipped texture make this perfect to use as your daily cream. Better yet, layered with your favorite lotion or cream, it maximizes the performance. The soothing ingredients of colloidal oatmeal, shea butter, eucalyptus oil and ceramides makes this a must have for anyone with dry, itchy or scaly skin, or if you have irritant eczema, allergic eczema or keratosis pilaris, Ultra Repair Cream will keep your skin soothed and protected. It’s deeply hydrating and exceptional penetration quality provides instant relief for all skin conditions. Even those with the most sensitive skin can enjoy the healing and protection of this fabulous cream. Use it on your face or all over your body for complete body care. My routine has been to apply this right out of my bath, apply my favorite cream, and my skin stays moisturized all day. No more ashiness and dryness! I give this cream an A+ for performance and a B for price. At $28 for a 6oz jar, it can be pricey but not bad for something that actually works!

Giorgio Armani 'Rouge d'Armani' Lipstick

Armani is known for their super creamy lipsticks and this one follows in the footsteps of its predecessors. The exceptionally long wearing formula gives up to eight hours of wear, although for me it was around six hours. Still not bad! The color stayed uniform without fading or feathering, and my lips were continuously hydrated. This is always important but especially so now that winter is upon us.
