Treatments (Face) - Mary Kay - Night Solution

Dec/01/2014

I am a friends and family Mary Kay consultant, I do not care for a number of their products, but this serum is really really good! I ran out of my regular night serum (Estée Lauder) and had this from my initial beauty kit that I never used so I thought, why not? I am 62, have little sun damage and use retin-A 0.5 nightly, so my skin is dry. I think this little serum has done a nice job of …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare - Ferulic Acid + Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum

Sep/18/2014

I purchased this about a month ago, in my eternal quest for the HG for eye products. I believe that this has definitely made a difference in my eyelids as they seem to be less hooded than before. All of the reviews have been good so far, even on Beautypedia. It has a number of beneficial ingredients, Vitamin C and E, and is in a dark, pump bottle so the ingredients stay stable over time. I do …Read more

Powder - Lancôme - Dual Finish Versatile Powder Makeup

I have used this makeup product for years when I was younger and had fallen away from it for the past 10 years. Now that I am older, and need to touch up my makeup in the afternoon, I picked up a new one and I believe it is better than ever! No caking, no gathering in the creases, and a lovely finish. Definitely a repurchase!

I recently tried this at a Sephora VIB Rouge event. I liked the smell and the feel on the skin. I use the cream at night and the lotion in the morning and at night. There is a night cream, but it is more of a sleep mask product. Overall, my skin feels softer and smoother. I have irritation in the form of flaking around my chin from using tretenoin cream from my plastic surgeon, and that is …Read more

Eye Shadow - CLINIQUE - Black Honey Shadow Pallette

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/18/2014

This is a takeoff on the iconic Black honey line. It was new on Sephora's web site. The shadows are mostly shimmery, and they are not really very pigmented. There are 8 pans ranging in color from light to the dark shade I know is black honey. The lavender shadows are nice, but again, it seemed like I had to really pack it on to get the intensity of the color. Although I would not buy …Read more

Foundations - IT Cosmetics - CC+ Veil Beauty Fluid Foundation SPF 50+

Sep/18/2014

I bought this at Ulta. This foundation is very good for mature skin, does not settle into pores and wrinkles and has just enough coverage to hide small imperfections. It is not a full coverage foundation. I do not use the puff that comes in the case as it will get dirty and nasty pretty fast. The foundation applies nicely with a Beautyblender or a brush. The packaging is nice for travel or …Read more

I tried this at Sephora. I did actually purchase it but am thinking of returning it due to the cost. The makeup artist told me it was "the best eye cream in the store". He was a 50 yr old male! If I keep it I'll post a review.

Mascara - Lancôme - Grandiose Mascara

Aug/04/2014

I bought this mascara this weekend at the VIP Rouge event at Sephora. The Lancôme rep told me it will be on sale this week. I was skeptical, as I am a makeup junkie, but this is really really good stuff. The wand is a little odd, but really helps you get a good angle for the best application. I have been wearing it for 12 hours so far and there is not a bit of smudging or flaking. Good …Read more

Cleansers - Clarisonic - Cashmere brush head

5.0

Aug/03/2014

Just saw this today at Sephora. I use a sensitive brush head but since I started using tretinoin cream, it was too harsh. I missed using the Clairsonic though. This solved the problem! Very soft and completely non-irritating. Worked great with Purity cleanser. Definitely will re-purchase.

Eye Primer - Tarte Cosmetics - CC Amazonian Clay eye primer

Jul/30/2014

This is new from Tarte. First, I could not get the lid off the pencil, had to wrap a rubber band around and really pull. The tester was the same way. The product has nice coverage, but all the Vitamin A and E plus all the other ingredients make it too oily. In a few hours my eye shadow was a gunky, creased up mess! It even caused my mascara to smear. It was pricy too, $23.00. I returned it …Read more
