Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter in Pink Truffle

I love it! I'm always trying to find a nice, complimenting brownish pink to add some color to my face. I'm not blessed with full lips like my daughter, so I don't like to wear too dark of a color. The color is just right, almost a semi-sheer in my opinion. It's has a nice sheen/gloss. Staying power is about average, not a 6 or 8-hour, but I can drink a cup of coffee at work and still see the color on my lips when done. Didn't dry my lips at all, which the longer wearing lipsticks seem to do. I will continue to purchase this product, and try other colors in the line.
Treatments (Eye) -Bobbi Brown - Hydrating Eye Cream

Received a generous sample of this product to try for my "dehydrated" eyes, as the sales rep said. I had tiny little bumps in the dark circle area which reminded me of chicken skin. Have been using the sample morning and night for about 4 weeks now, and the little "chicken" bumps are gone. Goes one smoothly, and absorbed well, but there were times I used too much and had to wait a bit longer. Make-up goes on great. No running mascara. It's a HYDRATING cream, not a firming or lifting cream. I phoned my BFF to share the info with her, because it seems at our age, 47, we're always looking for a good product. I'm very happy with this product.
Cleansers -Clinique - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

My daughter (25) brought this home and told me try it. I loved it. I have combination skin, oily in the T-zone, and signs of crows feet. I'm trying to make some changes to my skincare routine as I notice my skin changing. I followed her direction, using a small amount to massage onto my face and eyes using my fingertips, rinsed with warm water, then lightly washed with a watered down, small amount of my cleanser. I followed with my normal moisturizing routine. She's let me use her jar a couple of times, and each time my skin feels so smooth when I'm done. I don't feel any tightness, nor have I seen any redness. I'm going to the mall to buy my own jar tomorrow!
Blush -Urban Decay - Afterglow Glide On Cheek Tint

After-glow Cheek Tint - Crush. My daughter tried to sell me on this blush, but I kept thinking it's just too bright. So I asked the salesperson to help me. She took me to the same blush! It is definitely not too bright, although it appears so in the container. It's very sheer, can be layered for more color and blends easily. I've also found that does have pretty good staying power, which none of my previous blushes had. I love this blush and will be heading out this weekend to purchase another color for fall!
