MY BEST:

Discovering the miracle that is Sexy Hair Smooth and Protect Spray (review coming soon). It enforces good hair behavior, enhances shine and generally makes my hair look less birds-nesty.

MY WORST:

Toe shock 2009! I couldn’t believe what I saw when I looked down at my feet earlier this week. I’ve got some seriously gnarled cuticles that need cuticle oil, ASAP!

What were your best and worst beauty experiences of the week? Please share yours in the comments.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Ah… I have two tied for best:
    - Using a quick-dry top coat on my nails for the first time. On a whim, I picked up Poshe Quick-Dry Topcoat and OMG my life is changed!! I can do my nails anytime I want now! Polish completely dry in 5 minutes flat! Unfortunately it’s kind of chippy for me… don’t know if that’s just it’s interaction with $OPI Worth My Weight (which is gorgeous and blingtastic) or in general, but I will test it out some more, and maybe still cave on Seche Vite. Still life-changing though!
    - MAC 5 Haute Hijinks + Cocomotion = LOVE. I have been wearing these pigments all week and I adore them! Even got compliments from the BFF at our Friday brunch.

    My worst beauty moment was definitely getting another cystic pimple on my nose (definitely the most sensitive part of my face and dang that thing hurts! D:), just as my skin was almost all the way better (well, albeit scars) too! So frustrating!

    Best – my skin is clearing up. Yay!

    Worst – I was looking at my brows today and they are in desperate need of a wax. Hoping to get to the Benefit Brow Bar this week.

    Have a great week!

  3. Louisexox says:

    Best – My skin kinda being nice to me ^_^
    Worst – Realising they do not sell China Glaze nail polish in Australia and i don’t know anyone from the states who can get it for me :( I’m a sucker for punishment because i can’t stop reading American blogs and 99% of the things featured on them are not sold over here LOL

  4. Karen B says:

    Best – realising that the roots of my hair aren’t obvious at all so I can just relax and let my hair grow now :)

    Worst – My mascara running from the rain by the time I got to school and not having time to quickly wipe it away before the first student saw me. That was rather embarassing (it went through the different classes at top speed :s)

    And I want to go see New Moon but I don’t know when yet. Was it good?

  5. Tiffany says:

    Best – getting some Dior goodies from the Sephora FF sale! They were pretty pricey but I’m excited about them!

    Worst – my winter eczema is starting and I’m dry and itchy :(

  6. Avery says:

    Best- I have finally figured out how to rock my curly hair.

    Worst- I was supposed to get a package tomorrow and its been delayed in the mail until next Monday. Boo hoo!

  7. Christina says:

    My best: compliments on my hair, and new easy eye makeup.

    My worst: my skin is stressing. Boo on that.

  8. Gracie says:

    Best: Getting Photogravurue Technakohl eyeliner! Oh my god my old eyeliner (Urban Decay’s in Zero) would NOT sharpen! This one twists up, so I’m happy :)

    Worst: Hmm…a little piece of hair opposite my side bangs always flies up, and it’s really annoying. Ha ha, I can’t really think of anything else, so I guess that’s a good sign!

  9. Toni says:

    Hmm, I think my best experience would be when I realized that after I put in my hair smoothing gel I should use a fine tooth comb so that the product was better distributed. I just comb through slowly and gently. Duh! I had been using a wide tooth comb and wondering why my hair stayed frizzy.

    Worst: Constantly dry lips. I’ve been slathering Aquaphor on them like crazy.

    Oh, oh! I have another best experience: tried Olay Time Effects eye cream after reading about it in Shop Smart (Consumer Reports) and I love, love, love it! I have only used it this weekend, but it seems to help with reducing the dark circles.

  10. Kristen says:

    Worst: I’ve had one of those awful underground zits on my chin for 3 weeks, and it will not go away. It’s shrunk, but it keeps picking random times to get redder. So frustrating.

    Best: New shampoo made my hair look fab.
    .-= Kristen’s last blog post… Fake an Airbrushed Flush with Temptu Retouch Blush =-.

  11. Kris says:

    Best – finally worked up to lining my waterline. :) Love the drama!

    Worst – being stuck on work travel with not nearly enough makeup with me. Turns out I need a lot of variety on a two week trip.

  12. Frances says:

    Best: Getting a full spa mani/pedi!

    Worst: dry, flaky lips.

  13. resham says:

    Best: Buying the Trio lipsticks from Benefit at just $18…what a steal..:)
    Worst: Dry hands, dry cuticles, dry lips…this weather sucks!! (for mah skin)

  14. Stephie says:

    Best: Finally getting around to waxing the mustache and underarm bush, Damn. I felt so sexy afterwards :P

    Worst: Got a few new “friends” [enemies *cough] on my face. I should just cave and go back to expensive proactiv again…
    .-= Stephie’s last blog post… A Trip to the Godiva shop and Marukai =-.

  15. Christy says:

    Best: Stumbling upon Murale when I was only supposed to get Twilight Eclipse at the library. I got some Stila and Lippmann :)
    Worst: Finding the Volturi Twilight cosmetics line but not falling in love with it.
    .-= Christy’s last blog post… Murale at Oakridge Center =-.

  16. Fabienne says:

    Best: Tie between discovering translucent powder over Soft Ocher for a soft natural, smooth lid look, and Fawntastic on my cheekbones and along my nosebridge!

    Worst: My eczema is flaring up. It hurts to walk! It’ll see better days though, the weather isn’t bad and I won’t be in school forever!

  17. Steph B says:

    Best – Pureology Curl Define Creme — gives me soft, frizz-free waves that I love. I’d been taking a hiatus from silicone but I think having one product will be manageable.

    Worst – My skin is still struggling with the change of seasons. Acne and dry skin is just not fun.

  18. Molly says:

    Best- Bought some CG outlast lipstain.. it’s like a marker, but with stain. and it STAYS.
    Worst- One of those achy, throbbing under-the-skin zits IN my eyebrow… big and bad and oh how I want to pick at it, but I know it shouldn’t, cause then it will scar.

  19. Jen says:

    Best: My friend that works at Sephora gave me a makeover using the TEMPTU airbrush system. It was pretty cool!

    Worst: A ginormous buried pimple erupted on my chin. Gross.

  20. amy says:

    Best: I did a beautiful purple smokey eye for my cousin’s night time wedding. It was almost too much makeup compared to the other girls because most girls there went for the natural look, but didn’t care! I liked my look and for the sake of my beauty addiction and my passion for experimenting, it is all good! I liked my look anyway.

    Worst: 3 little pimples appeared on my forehead a few days before the wedding and didn’t disappear.

    I actually love that hair product! I use it daily and spray each piece of hair before I flatiron..Works great! :D
