Apr/01/2015

I've been using this for about a month and am totally in love. I needed new cleanser and thought, what the heck, I'll give this a try. I'm so glad I did!
I can honestly say my skin is softer and smoother with emphasis on the smoother. What I'm finding is that, even on nights when I'm too tired to put on all my magic potions, using this cleanser makes up for some …

Love, love, love! This scent is perfect for me. I am never asked what kind of perfume I'm wearing, I get told, 'You smell so good!'. I purchased it in a roller ball last year and just fell in love with it. After every drop was gone I purchased a bottle. Pretty sure I'll use every drop of it, too.
To me it is truly a light scent. I couldn't really say what it …

Liquid - Dior - DIORSKIN STAR

Oct/15/2014

After hearing my favorite YouTube people rave about this, I could hardly wait to make it my own.

It didn't take long to find out that it broke me out. I am 59 with combo skin and pretty much never break out, so that was really noticeable. But that wasn't the actual deal breaker.
No matter how I applied it or how much moisturizer and prepping I did, it looked a bit on …

I almost never wear nude lipsticks. Because they make me look dead! I just haven't found one that didn't look like I have concealer on my lips or something.

Until this one!

There is just enough of a hint of pink in it to work perfectly. It really doesn't look pink on my lips at all.. it's definitely nude... but that pinch of color makes the difference …

Makeup Brushes - Sephora Collection - Professionnel Platinum Air Brush #56

I absolutely love this brush! Although I know it's a foundation brush, I use it for my cream blushes. Oh, la....what a perfect, natural finish! No matter how crazy I get with plastering a blush on, this brush quickly and smoothly blends the edges and gives me that much coveted gorgeous finish. I've used it with many kinds of blushes and am 100% happy with it's performance on …Read more

Aug/03/2014

I picked up a small jar of this in the checkout line in Sephora. What a beautiful color (Poppy Paradise)! I like the texture and find it's easier to apply than I thought it would be. But I am so disappointed in how long it lasts. I read other reviews that say it lasts for hours, but, for me, that is not happening. I am not shy when it comes to applying my blush, so it's really on …Read more

Aug/03/2014

I honestly love everything about this great product. I like the big flat container.. it's so easy to swirl my Sephora pro bronzer brush #45 in this cool jar. Because of the inner cap and tightly closing outer cap, I've had this for months and there isn't even a hint of it drying out.
Some days I just want a touch of it... what lovely subtle shading it does. Some days I want …

Brows - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Pomade in Blonde

Aug/03/2014

I have tried so many things for my brows. It's easy to get them to look good for five minutes, but it's that all day thing that kept evading me.
I have fairly dark brows, but I use this in the blonde. I LOVE this stuff. It takes just the teeniest amount and gives such splendid results. It looks so natural. Before I used it I thought, oh my heck, you put all this color on your …

Jul/19/2014

I am surprised to discover how much I like this! I've been using it for about two months now. For me it does not settle into lines or look cakey, which makes me fist pump and shout for joy! I've tried quite a few high end concealers with no luck.
The pen/brush thing doesn't bother me. I haven't had any trouble with mine and, once I got it primed, it only takes a quick …

Primer/ Corrector - CHANEL - Base Lumiere - Illuminating Makeup Base

I. Love. This.
I wasn't even sure how I would use it and was very skeptical, but I finally gave in and brought one home. I am so glad I did!

I have tried other 'illuminating' type things, but either see nothing, or see sparkles and/or shine. This is hard to describe, because illuminate sounds shiny to me. For me, it gives my skin a dewy look (not oily). It makes …
