Concealers - IT Cosmetics - Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer

I absolutely love this concealer. I tried it because my sister got it in a kit from QVC. For reference, I'm NC 20 in MAC, and Fairly Light in Bare Minerals Original. The shade Medium is actually a perfect match for me in Bye Bye Undereye but that's because I don't ever try to lighten up the undereye. I am 43 with undereye darkness that I've had for life and I've found …Read more

Eye Shadow - COVERGIRL - Eye Enhancers 3 Coordinated Eyeshadow Kit - Shimmering Sands

Shimmering Sands! This trio was practically a rite of passage for anyone who was just starting out with makeup in the 80's or 90's. I feel like we all had this and a Dr. Pepper Lip Smacker. As soon as Covergirl was declared cruelty free, I ran out to buy this out of pure nostalgia. Unfortunately there is no Orange Julius at the mall anymore and I can't find my Nirvana CD so the …Read more

This little four dollar gem has actually become my favorite (and most reached-for) foundation. Just to give you a little background for comparison sake, I typically go for light, natural coverage. Most often, I use a tiny bit of Bare Minerals Original Foundation, or some type of light BB Cream. I ran out of foundation and I was in between paydays so I picked this up at Family Dollar...And now I …Read more

Foundations - Physicians Formula - The Healthy Foundation SPF 20

I like this foundation a lot. I normally go for light, very natural coverage -- I'm fine with a few freckles or a little bit of redness showing through. I find this foundation to be medium coverage so I use it sparingly by applying a tiny dot to each cheek (to cover some of the redness), and one dot on my chin. If you prefer full coverage, I believe this formula is easily buildable. The …Read more

Liquid - bareMinerals - BarePro Liquid Foundation

I tend to gravitate towards very light coverage foundation. Most of the time, I just use a tinted moisturizer or a light dusting of mineral foundation. However, I have rosacea and when the redness on my cheeks is more prominent, I need a little more coverage. For days that I need more coverage, I was using MAC Studio Waterweight. I loved Waterweight because for me, it offered real coverage and …Read more

I have to give a major shout out to this little gem. I like to keep my skin care routine very simple and I've pared it down to just a few basic staples -- I use a moisturizer with sunscreen in it, and a little Argan oil around my eyes each morning. At night, before going to bed, I slather on Argan oil all over. Using those two products is enough for me, except in the Winter. I'm 41 with …Read more

Eye Shadow - NYX Professional Makeup - Lid Lingerie

Aug/08/2017

I decided to try Lid Lingerie because I was looking for a cruelty free alternative to Maybelline Color Tattoos and Dior Fusion Mono, both of which were my go-to for a "one and done" look. I'm glad I decided to try this because I really do love it! I picked up two matte shades and one shimmery shade. Just to offer you a comparison, I feel like the Lid Lingerie is perhaps not quite …Read more

I have fair skin, and I love having a good red blush on hand for days when I want to attempt the Snow White look. After using NARS Exhibit A for years and finally hitting pan on it, I was on the hunt for a cruelty free alternative and I found it in the Nyx HD Blush in Crimson. In the pan, its a shocking orange based tomato red. Applied with a very light hand and blended out on the apples of the …Read more

Blush - wet n wild - Ombre Blush

I got this in the shade Purple Haze. Unfortunately for me, this was a huge fail. I tried using this with my go-to, Elf Large Stipple Brush. I like that brush because it doesn't pick up a ton of product so it prevents me from over doing it, but with this blush, it seemed to pick up nothing at all except for glitter that emphasized my pores and texture once applied. So I tried it on other days …Read more

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

Jul/14/2017

I'm a light coverage gal. I gravitate towards BB Creams or a sheer dusting of mineral foundation. However now that summer has arrived and I'm sweating like a beast, light coverage products melt and slide off my face. I don't fault the products for that because I don't think any foundation will stay put in the southern heat when it's 103 in the shade.

My thought …
