Oh, I def think Im going to have to try out the Latisse! LOL I like the length of my lashes and they do curl on their own…but they are blonde and I want dark, inky colored lashes:)
I dont really experiment with a lot of skin care items…I keep my routine basic and ignore all the false promises of reversing aging. Thats why we have plastic surgeons:)

I wont try any (more) mineral foundations. They are all just dry and powdery on me, and Im tired of getting disappointed. I do fine with liquid anyway. 🙂

Yeah Im a bit scared of the side effects from lash growth products too 🙁

Thats really the only thing I wont try, but I dont bother with things like lip plumpers, anti-ageing creams and such because I dont need them

I have no interest in Botox, Juvederm, or other anti-aging injections or procedures. We all age, whether we like it or not, and I think the challenge is to do it gracefully – which to me means with dignity, a humble spirit, and strength of character.

Appearances count, and makeup is incredibly fun!, but I think cosmetics should be used to enhance who we are, not to create a plastic layer of toxins and chemicals that hide our true humanity. It makes me wonder whats being hidden inside, as well. We are all beautiful and unique, and should be celebrated for being who we are – not for covering it up!

False lashes and pigments really intimidate me, but I would love to try them and often think about it so its kind of weird. LOL

I agree. Anything that can affect my eyes scares me too. Ill stick with mascara, and fake lashes, although I havent ventured into that yet. Waiting for the perfect opportunity to try them out.

i dont think theres anything i wont try… usually what stops me is cost!
(ive been using latisse since may, and i love it!)

I agree, Ill try most things once but Latisse or any derivative of, no thank you. Also, Im pretty much convinced that most nail polish rapid dry products dont do the same thing as just letting those babies dry on their own.

Does the OPI Drip Dry dull your polish at all? I have found that the drying sprays can dull the shine of my freshly painted nails!

Nope, not that I’ve noticed. I tend to favour fairly bright colours and metallics and they still pop! The formula uses dimethylsiloxane so I think it just speeds up the evaporation of the solvent in the nail polish. It can leave kind of an slick (but not oily) film but that washes off easily.
You only need one drop per nail (though I keep mine short) but you do need to tilt you hand so it spreads evenly across the nail.
It’s expensive but I love it!

well its muh easier to define what i will use – hair removing methods, hair products, skin care cosmetics and makeup for your face.

i tend to go natural so i never bother with other stuff, its too time consuming =]

Lip plumpers. Dont really need them, doubt they work that well, and it creeps me out to think the point of the product is to **irritate** your lips into swelling up. Beauty shouldnt burn!

Latisse… any chemical like that close to your eye is probably bad.

I also will never try that eye(?) cream that is made from baby foreskin. umm ew!

laser hair removal (too many horror stories, electrolysis is the only proven permanent hair removal)
abrasive scrub type things like the clairsonic
false eyelashes because I have long eyelashes and I don’t think I would be good at putting them on
mineral makeup (too gimmicky, all makeup has “minerals” so why does being only minerals make it better suddenly?)
I used to tint my eyelashes, but I won’t anymore, the risks are too severe, even though it looks great.
hair extension pieces, sometimes I can see them on people, and I wouldn’t want it to be noticeable or fall out or something

I just can’t be bothered with hair removal/bleach products, anti-cellulite creams, lip plumpers and eyelash curlers.

Self tanners. I spent the whole summer outside and barely got darker.. to just show up to work looking like an oompa loompa one day doesn’t appeal to me.
