Foundations - Estée Lauder - Double Wear On The Go Makeup

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/08/2016

Packaging for this is classy and clever. Mirrored compact for liquid fdtn -- it's about time.

Of course, wanted to sample before buying the product. SA matched me with 3W1 Tawny, which is slightly too dark, but didn't want to go too light. Overall, 3W1 Tawny works for my skin. While applying the fdtn at home, it didn't cover red areas well, and as the day wore one …

Fragrances - Estée Lauder - Pleasures Eau Fraiche

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/03/2016

Pleasures Eau Fraiche is a softer version of Pleasures. If you're a fan of Pleasures, be sure to test this the next time you're at the Estee Lauder counter.

When peony and jasmine are dominant notes in a fragrance, it won't work with my chemistry. Those notes in Eau Fraiche smell so soft, summery and feminine on my skin. The pepper note is very soft and blends …

BB Cream - Physicians Formula - Super BB All-In-One Beauty Balm Cream

2.0

Jul/02/2016

Purchased in the light/medium shade. It slightly oxidizes, but not to the point of turning my skin a burnt orange shade.

I don't expect it to even skin tone as well as a fdtn, so will say for light coverage, it does a decent job. Finish is very soft, and I can't quite put my finger on it, but something about the finish resembles a very soft powdery finish. Maybe it's …

Lipstick - COVERGIRL - Continuous Color Lipstick in Brandyberry

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/02/2016

This color is a medium/dark muted pink mixed with mauve. This shade is between a light, subdued pink, and a bright "in your face" pink/mauve. It's a pretty, feminine color, and it brightens up my face.

If the 40 and over crowd are hesitant to try this because of the shimmer, it's in moderation, and it really brightens up one's face.

Longevity …

Eye Makeup Remover - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Sens'Eyes Waterproof Sensitive Eye Cleanser

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/02/2016

While waiting in the check-out line at Sephora, I spotted a mini of this in the display area (near the check-out, of course! lol) which has mini's of various beauty items. Bought this, and after using it once, regretted the purchase.

It didn't remove eye makeup well. I had to swipe vigorously on my lashes to remove mascara. The only eye makeup this removed without tugging …

Blush - Estée Lauder - Blush All Day - Blossom

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/07/2016

This gives a pop of medium to dark pink/mauve color to the cheeks without looking garish. This shade adds vibrancy and a well-rested look to my face.

Make-up artists recommend creme blush for women in my age group, but this color won me over. Haven't noticed a problem with it settling into fine lines, and it lasts a good length of time.

Blush is packaged in a dark …

Lip Gloss - COVERGIRL - Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in Berry Twist #230

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/07/2016

Purchased this on a whim. The Gloss is moisturizing on the lips. That's saying a lot during a midwestern winter. Coverage isn't too sheer, and not too opaque. Staying power is slightly above average. Haven't tried a jumbo gloss yet with longevity, so won't take away points for that.

This Jumbo Gloss Balm works as well, if not better, than department store …

Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - Trim Slanted Tip Tweezer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/24/2016

Trim Slanted Tip Tweezer works well on my eyebrows. The slanted tip grabs the barely there new growth well and plucks with no problem. No need to worry about tweezer pinching skin nor not being able to grab hair.

If you're looking for a good eyebrow tweezer, recommend this product!

Foundations - Tarte Cosmetics - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full-Coverage Foundation SPF 15

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/22/2016

Amazonian Clay evens skin tone well, and finish looks soft and pretty. It's like the fdtn melts into your skin leaving it looking smooth. However, one major drawback - this isn't hydrating enough for my dry skin. Looks good for an hour, and then skin begins looking dry in spots. Like the finish so much even tried different moisturizer underneath to add moisture, but to no avail. …Read more
