    Was that you who recommended Prada Candy? I finally got around to sniffing it and I. SIMPLY. MUST. OWN IT.

    It's like Lancome's Climat and Pink Sugar had a baby.

    I have super oily hair, so I can't really help specifically, but one of the Wen cleansing conditioners is supposed to be good for dry hair. (I can't remember which one, because, obviously, I can't use it...)

    If you decide to try it, I would get one off ebay to try first. That's what I did. Now I won't use anything else.

    Yeah, some the higher end waterproof mascaras take their jobs seriously.

    Eye makeup remover-Lancome's Bifacil is expensive but its heavy duty makeup remover that is still gentle for the eyes and non irritating. A less expensive option is Sonia Kashuk's Remove(you can get it at Target for like $10) or Neutrogena's makeup removing wipes($5). Both are great for removing eye makeup.

    Also, be careful about waterproof mascara. I've heard they can be harsh or rough on eyelashes and shouldnt be used everyday. I don't know if that's true but I've read makeup artists who say this and some makeup artists rarely use waterproof outside of wedding or folks with oily lids.

    Yeah, it was me that you about the Prada Candy.

    I've never tried/smelled Lancome's Climat but I'll have to try it.

    Yes, and you also said it would be up my alley, and boy, is it ever!

    Climat may have been discontinued which is a crime as I consider it the sexiest fragrance ever made. Parfum is the one I have in mind.

    Still have NOT received my e.l.f. package

    BTW, I'm going to go on a "girly rampage" this weekend. It's an early payback for me having to endure this upcoming Thanksgiving at the in-laws. I'm thinking makeup, hair care items, and perfume. I might just buy me that bottle of Hypnotic Poison but I have something else on my mind that I want to check out. Shalimar by Guerlain. Anyone tried it here? I ♥ vanilla so I'm interested in sniffing this one.

    edited to add: uh... I just read the reviews of Shalimar from Macy's and uh.... the majority is from women in their 50's-60's! hmmm... Not only that, supposedly the formula's been changed and it's no longer the vintage Shalimar.

    I love vanilla-based scents. All the fragrances I own have a serious helping of vanilla. I do know that Shalimar is supposedly the mother of all vanillas but IMO it's too classic for me. I have a modern taste, I suppose. If you are not into classic scents, make sure to sniff Shalimar before you purchase.

    Gawd I lurve Shalimar. Someone gave that to me for Christmas when I was 17 because I had this big fat honking crush on a dude and my friend asked her mother what the best perfume is for snagging a man and she said Shalimar. So my friend bought me a bottle of it. And I wore it. A LOT. At 17. Everybody else was sashaying around in their jelly shoes in Giorgio and Poison in the halls of my high school, and I was wearing Shalimar with my faux combat boots.

    Nice! And I thought I lucked out with the 30% off almost everything else last week.

    I have a cream blush and it's really nice, cream-to-powder consistency. I tried the liquid foundation and primer and hated them both. Haven't heard much else about the line.

    Have you tried any of the Morrocan Oil product line? It is formulated for coarse, dry hair. My hairstylist tried it on me and I love it. It made my hair silky. It is basically argan oil plus other ingredients and there are several different products in the line.

    My mom has coarse, curly/wavy hair that she straightens every day and she uses it too and likes it. Plus it supposedly will shorten the length of time you need to spend drying your hair.
    I'm not spoiled...I deserve all my stuff.

    I just bought the penetrating moroccan argan oil extra for dry coarse hair by organix today. I'm excited to try it.

    The morrocan oil intense curl cream is also fantastic for giving lots of moisture. Are you using any kind of heat protectant/leave-in treatment before you heat style? There are some really good ones out there that give good moisture and eliminate frizz. You may also want to look into any products that contain some kind of natural protein to repair damage you may have from color treating and heat styling your hair. The natural protein will fill the gaps in your cuticle and make it feel less straw-like, and it'll make it easier to style.

    I am spending way too much money on Moroccan Oil products, but I also have mid-length coarse curly hair and it tames it better than anything. I've got the shampoo, conditioner, intense curl AND the oil (I don't use the latter two together.)

    However sometimes I cheap out and go back to the L'Oreal sulfate-free stuff. I made the mistake of doing that last week before going in for a color appointment and my colorist yelled at me. "Girl, you cannot wear anything you buy in a drugstore. Got that?"



    And I'm another vanilla scent person. If Hypnotic Poison is too much, there's a wonderful old Cacherel fragrance called LouLou which is somewhat lighter, a little more oriental, and a lot cheaper. Problem is finding it in the US, I buy it in dutyfree shops.

    And Kenzo Amour. Also wonderful.

    Shalimar is....old.

    I could get a decant of LouLou at the Perfumed Court. I have a difficult relationship with Kenzo Amour--I really like it but it doesn't like me. Doesn't work with my body chemistry.

    My staple or in the words of Makeupalley, HG, remains Lolita Lempicka the original. I am going to limit Prada Candy to a sample. Nothing makes me feel as comfortable and myself as LL although I do cheat on it with various Guerlains.
