The current perfect formula: Paul Mitchell has a new line out, Modern Elixirs.  The leave in conditioner and the texturizing balm make my hair nice and piecy *without* the hard/oily/wet look.  And they smell good too. From Kristi

There are 2 products that I seriously cannot do without: Queen Helene’s Mint Julep Masque and Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner. The first one has been my nightly staple since junior high and pretty much the only mask I’ve tried that actually works. It smells nice, is easy to use and since my skin is moody, I just leave it on my trouble spots overnight to wake up to soft clear skin the next morning. I even got some of the guys in my dorm in college to use it! As an arden eyeliner fan (I feel naked without it), Revlon’s Colorstay is the only one that actually stays put. I used to live in dry, sunny Southern California where the heat used to sweat my eyeliner right off. Now I live in humid New England where the moisture in the air is also not compatible with eyeliner. So far, Colorstay has lasted through both climates. Just one clean line across both eyes in the morning and I’m good to go for the rest of the day. The best part is even if I wear eyeshadow or cream, it doesn’t make the eyeliner smudge (unlike other eyeliners that claim to be waterproof). It comes off easily with baby oil too (my personal makeup remover of choice). From Suma
