I tried this a few years ago and wasn't impressed. I couldn't seem to find the right shade, I wanted to love it but it wasn't happening, so I went back to Revlon Colorstay and stuck with it. It's been my go to for decades, though I rarely get a full day out of it. I recently revisited ELDW and was not disappointed this time.

I finally found a shade that worked for …

My HG is Revlon ColorStay and have used it for decades, but I like to try other products as well. I'm not a fan of It Cosmetics CC cream, it just didn't work for me. The product is nice, but after a few hours it would wear off and I'm a greasy mess. I saw this was similar so I thought I'd give it a shot.

Color selection isn't huge here, and I'm tough to …

My OPI Nail Envy is aging, so I came across this at Walmart and figured I had nothing to lose. I got it in Sheer to You, and I love.it. Perfect sheer shade and it enhances natural nails. It doesn't get gloppy like an opaque pastel polish. I've had two coats on for a week and it hasn't chipped. I work for a repo company and am constantly opening cars, inspecting the engine …Read more

After a few weeks with this, my hair feels amazing. I don't use it every day, but a few times a week. My crispy ends feel great and look good too. It's been rather humid here and my hair isn't frizzing, even if I skip the flat iron. I'll never be without this.

I was looking for an inexpensive foundation for summer as I've gotten some sun and my usual Revlon ColorStay was too light. I need solid medium to full coverage and am recently 50. Revlon works well for me, but I didn't feel like spending $10 or more for a shade I'll use for a few months. I've tried Matte & Poreless before and I wasn't wowed by it. I also had a bottle …Read more

I've never given moisturizers a second thought. I mean, I know I need it, so I've bought budget friendly from brands that I trust. Most recently I was using Neutrogena oil free daily moisturizer, totally no fuss. I'm almost 50 with combo skin, prefer a high medium coverage foundation and have issues with said foundation slipping, sliding, and sinking into lines and wrinkles. I have …Read more

GAME CHANGER! I went to cosmetology school. I can blow out other people's hair, but could never get the right tension for my own. I'm nearly 50. My hair is wavy to curly left on its own, and color treated. Years ago when I had the time to blow it out it would take 30 minutes or more, and a curling or flat iron wasn't even an option but a necessity to smooth it out. I also …Read more

Picked this up after seeing some reviews, especially by the over 40 crowd. I tried this back in my 30s but it must not have reached HG status for me as I don't recall the last time I used it. I typically use Revlon Colorstay in Soft Beige or ivory, whatever it's called (#180). I held that up to bottles of this and decided on soft Ivory N1. First off, it's too light for me, but …Read more

For Dark Chocolate Brown (4AR I think) :
I use this and wonder why I stray from it. I have a million hair color reviews here and for all different brands and shades. I've used this brand (but not this shade) many times over 35 years and it's really one of my favorites.

When you're using a dark shade things can get messy and I like some control over that. I get it …

Lipsticks and foundation. My two addictions. I've used so many over the years and love both.

I've been on the hunt for a foundation that looks good and wears great forever. I've tried so many. Smashbox. IT Cosmetics. Maybelline. Cover Girl. Milani. Lancome. I recently tried the fave ELDW and the shade was too light. Its an HG for many. But while the shade was wrong, I …
