    Thanks! I would have been glad with a tip anyway, even if it hadn't worked. I just have to try things and see how they go with my hair.
    It doesn't really lie that much better I think but my hair feels much silkier! Even my boyfriend commented on the fact that now my hair couldn't be sold as a shaving brush anymore.

    I got it from the UK. Cost only about 3$ in delivery. So great.

    I got the one with the pump. Thanks for the tip. I used two pumps yesterday so I will tone it down today.


    For Christmas I have been to Douglas yesterday and brought three items from Lancome (mascara, blush and one little bath bubble) and paid nearly 70€.
    The mascara better be worth it.

    Yes, I'm in a northern suburb. I never knew about a Perfumania in Tonawanda - perhaps you're thinking of the Niagara Falls outlet? That's actually just called "Fragrance Outlet", I looked it up. There's only a Perfumania at Walden Galleria, which is east of the city in Cheektowaga, and I have no idea if they carry NYX (but it'd be awesome).

    A location in Tonawanda would be amazing, because Galleria is right now, and the outlet mall is a bit of a hike for me. And dangerous because they have a CCO with lots of cheap MAC.

    It will improve even more after a few uses.

    It is!

    I did the Euro to dollar conversion in my head and even that seems steep for 3 Lancome products. Or perhaps it has been awhile since I bought Lancome but I don't remember it ever costing close to $140 for a mascara, blush, and bath bubbles.

    70€ are about $100. Still a lot.

    Ok, Glamour Puss also means fabulous shoes, right???

    So, I gave in. I got myself a pair of 3inch (I'm 1,80m after all ) pair of simple leather, pale beige high heels. Not cheap (for my standarts anyway...). I am LOVING how they make my legs look longer and that they actually match my skin color. Nothing like a nnice pair of shoes to make a gal feel better (do I sense a little Carrie Bradshaw syndrom ? )

    So, any shoe shopping for the Holidays???

    And, oh: Merry Christhmas, Glamour Puss !!!!

    I'm now the proud owner of a $75.00 giftcard to use at Ulta . The is going to be deciding what to get .

    Mom also got me Ralph Lauren's Romance gift set - 3.4 oz. parfum, 3.4 oz. each of lotion and bath gel, and a miniature of the parfum .

    Has anyone here ever used Neutrogena's battery-operated skin buffer/exfoliator? MiniCyn wants one of those, and before I drop $25 US on one, I'd like to know if it's worth it.

    I thought it was crap. Save your money. I don't really have an alternative to suggest, though.

    No Sephora cards for me this year (probably because mom knows I've spent enough there of late ), but I see they're having a sale. But everyone's cards should go that much further, I'd think.

    I did, but I was really dumb and went to a local cheapie salon. They grinded my nails (only a touch) and used glue for the tips. Shortly into the grinding I thought to leave, but talked to the technician and decided to suck it up and deal with my mistake.

    They feel okay, and aren't too hard to use. I do want them off when I get back to work, though. Typing isn't so much fun. But they've done well so far.

    I WAS JUST THERE. DAMN IT. (I thought bagging gold, taupe and "rockstar skinny" on the 3 for 2 was decent)

    I had the worst timing, it appears. Target rolled out its Rodarte white line the DAY AFTER I returned home to Targetlessanada. :

    A good place won't glue on tips or grind your actual nails. They will build forward if you want your nails longer than your natural nails. They use a foil covered paper shape, with adhesive underneath. They put the shape under your nail and stick it together under your finger, this provides a sort of armature, to build the nail on. I keep mine rather short, so they do not interfere with typing, etc. Too bad you did not have a good experience. You might try again with a better salon. If you do, I would grow your natural nails as long as you want them to be and have them put the gels on top of your nails. I only need mine extended if one breaks, and that is rare.

    I feel your pain.

    I'm in Targetlesscanada too. And there is no Sephora where I live either.

    Plus...when I went to order the 4 pack of Calvin Klein mini nailpolishes from Sephora last night, they were all sold out.

    I have very dark hair and the best dry shampoo I have used is Green Rootine by Jonathan Product. It's a powder that goes on with a twist-up brush. No mess, no weird grayish tinge and a little goes a long way.
