    I like Take the Day off... but I never tried using just baby oil. My going out signature look is lots of black eyeliner and mascara, and not much other makeup... I need serious removal power. Anyway, I think it's designed to be used before your usual face cleanser.

    I don't like
    Perscriptives Virtual Skin - made me break out badly
    BenFit WonderBod - separates and smells SICK
    Jergens Shave Minimizer - who wants to wait four weeks for it to start to work? You have to buy a new bottle by then... I predict that this product will dissapear from the market. I only have to shave 1/week anyway
    Stila Mascara - undoes my curl


    So, what do you do with a product that maybe you spent some money on but don't want anymore. Do you just throw it away?

    Hee! In my case, it sits under my sink for about 6 years. That's about how long it takes me to realize that I will NEVER EVER EVER have any use for it ever again :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    A shopoholic product junkie pack-rat makes for a verrrrrry cluttered bathroom :p

    Thanks, Alli! I'm using moisturizer before I apply the Secret Camouflage and you're right, I do think it helps.

    I've changed my mind. I'm really loving my Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage now. It just took awhile to learn to how to do it properly and when I do, I really do have a flawless face!

    It's not THAT hard, LolitaLuxe, but it does take practice. Definitely get the Secret Camouflage brush -- I think that makes a big difference because of its shape. You can make it very pointy or broader as you wish. I also think it looks more finished with the loose powder but that depends on how much coverage you need. I have rosacea so I need a lot!

    The nice thing about having two colors is being able to make the color match the exact place you need coverage. Just practice until you make it perfect!

    - Loreal Pure Zone Cleanser ~ this was not gentle enough for my skin,
    my skin was red after i used it!
    - Clinique Waterproof Mascara ~ when i put it on there were only a few
    clumps but then when i would come out
    of the pool my eyelashes were all clum-
    ped up and it was hard to get off and
    to get my eyelashes apart so they would
    look normal..
    - Maybelline Cool Effects Eye Liner ~ made my eyes hurt & didn't glide
    on as smooth as it said.

    - Dr. Hauschka cleansing cream; it worked really well actually but the SMELL turned me right off! ugh.
    - Max Factor Lashfinity mascara; made my lashes brittle and they stuck together, it was also a chore to get it off!
    - Tommy Hilfiger lipgloss; looks nice and shiny but the glitter particles stick on your lips and feel gritty like sand.

    Why should the smell make it a "real" product, leyla? Just trying to understand... ??
