OVER 50 here. Disappointed after high hopes for this product w/all the polymers & copolymers. Used with very expensive Estee Lauder primer and moisturizer, and still found this too dry and too drying. Thick consistency made it difficult to get out of the bottle. And it still didn't cover well. A weird formulation. Back to Almay w/Kinetin, but still searching.
I braved Bloomingdale's overheated mob scene on a Saturday afternoon to buy this, and I think I look darn good on this hectic Monday because the good shade of this blush has really has lasted! Thanks to all the MUA reviewers for the detailed information. It's a keeper, and here's hoping it's never, ever discontinued, right?!
Over 50 here: I reviewed this product negatively the first time around, but have decided that as a blush (not as lip tint) it is very good if one isn't planning on wearing foundation and "the works." Wish Bonne Bell would bring back their much more reasonably priced gel blushes (came in a small tubes) that were available in the late 70s/early 80s. Benetint is really wa-a-ay too expensive, but these days they can ask for the money because there's no similar product out there, really.
I've been waiting for the perfume because on various chat clubs I'd learned it's one of the best blends, and it is, way out front of the EDT and EDP. This is my latest craze, and it's definitely for those who want deep, dark scents. The depth and sharpness in the perfume are beautifully blended, whereas the EDP and EDT a little too edgy, tangy, bitter for some (though I love the EDP). Tabac Blond lovers, as well as Rive Gauche fans, will take to this classic. Update: Unfortunately, my body chemistry changed (or something!), and I can no longer tolerate Cabochard. Really too bad.
OVER 50 here: Bought City Stick hoping I'd be adding my own rave review, but find that it emphasizes my pores and doesn't blend well for me. It's not as spackle-y as some foundations, but probably better for combination or less dry skin.
OVER 50 here: My 27-yr-old daughter turned me on to Face Stockholm's lipstick shade Ash after having it recommended to her by a female portrait photographer (as in actors' head shots) as a shade that suits nearly everyone. I like it very, very much, but also want to recommend very highly their shades Prophecy (a darker reddish brown that even I, middle aged and fair) can wear, and Potential (softer deep rose). Not all their shades and textures work for me (but they have wild shades that are very popular with others), and I can SWEAR that they do not "run." I never need a lip liner or any other product to prevent "bleeding." Go for it.
