Moisturizers - Charlotte Tilbury - Magic Night Cream

Agree with 8Ball in that it is very moisturising for that "mature" skin. I live in a humid climate at the moment and I use very little of this cream at night. A tiny amount is enough. Pat it deeply into your skin, neck and décolleté. Yes it does have a slight tacky feel in the morning but I don't remove it. Simply apply my tinted moisturiser and I am on my way. I received a …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Orgasm Blush

3.0

You have to love some of these products and want them because of the name. Who doesn't want a blush called Orgasm or one called Sex On Fire? (Charlotte Tillbury). Unfortunately, I have too much blue in my skin (NW20) so Orgasm simply does not suit. I can get away with the Orgasm stick over a pinker color to give a bit of a glow, but Orgasm is overpriced at the end of the day.

Eyeliner - Urban Decay - 24/7 Waterline Eye Pencil

Nope. Does not last anywhere 24/7. It has a tendency to get on my contacts and I prefer Eatee Lauder double wear pencil for the water line way above this.

Would not repurchase.

Highly recommend this oil recently suggested by a Sephora m/u artist. I was disgusted by the price of s neck cream of over $200 at Neiman Marcus (ok, I know!), so wen to sephora and she immediately suggested this. I wanted it for an..um...aging neck shall we say, but ended up using s drop in my moisturizer and wow! It is fabulous. It also gives you a nice glow on the shoulders and chest when …Read more

Blush - Dior - Diorblush

I bought this blush in Lucky Pink. $44 at Sephora. Usually I buy MAC blushes because they are inexpensive and last. But I fell in love with the color of Lucky Pink and, well, to be honest, when the girl grabbed it out out of the drawer for me, she said: “Oh! Lucky Pink. Maybe you will get Lucky!” Well, I had to have it!

Within a few uses it developed this dark cast on the top. MAC …

Moisturizers - La Mer - Creme de la Mer The Moisturizing Creme

Dec/09/2017

I know the price is over the top and one of the ingredients is mineral oil, but it is the only moisturizer that works for me during winter minths. Because of the steep price, I do rotate it with other creams but this is the one where when I wake up in the morning, my skin actually feels moisturized and not at all dry or tight. I am consistently told what great skin I have so for now, Creme de …Read more

Neck/Decollete Cream - CLARINS - Advanced Extra-Firming Neck Cream

Unfortunately, I can’t give this product any more than one star. $108 at Macy’s and it caused such a rash and terrible itching in my neck and décolleté. I was away at the time and had to bear it using an over the counter steroid cream.

Back it went. If you have sensitive skin, beware.

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Star Nova

I bought this as the MAC counter was out of another one I liked better. Now I am glad I bought this instead. I have highly pigmented lips and this gives that evening glamor look and goes very well with a smokey eye and just a touch of blush. It could be too that I have been doing the pale lip lately and this does give me a bit of kick. I like the brush type glosses and find them moisturizing …Read more

Mascara - Lancôme - Definicils High Definition Mascara

It is completely beyond my comprehension why this mascara is still supposedly the top seller at the Lancome counter. I have bought this mascara several times over the past few years, and on most occasions have had to return it. The primary reason for my return was the mascara was dried out. I will say that ones that were not so dry did a good job of lengthening, and this mascara doesn't …Read more
