I bought this after Livloveshermakeup listed this as a favorite.
Since moving to the desert, my skin changed considerably.
This suits my dehydration but I would not be able to use this when I had normal to combo.
I apply with my hands like a lotion or serum.

Concealers - Tarte Cosmetics - Shape Tape Contour Concealer

I already bought a backup, being completely paranoid that if I run out, tarte will discontinue it. I found this right as the hype began, but only because I asked my Ulta dealer (lol) what the most fair shade of concealer was.

This isn't just a good concealer, it reminded me of a thinner version of the Kevyn Aucoin sensual skin perfector. Lots of coverage, could be sheered out if …

This pallette is absolutely stunning. All the colors are beautiful, highly pigmented and soft as butter. With the right brushes, this is a fail proof eyeshadow, but it requires a bit of restraint on behalf of the user. Intense reds, buxom browns, I mean holy crap, this is a fabulous palette.

I am late to the highlighting game. As a 90s woman, shine just seemed wrong. But these are fabulous on my face! Incredibly soft, and work beautifully. I did do swatch comparison with the Ambient Lighting Powders from Hourglass and I saw no difference in quality with the palettes. This is an absolute fave!

I am on my second bottle. This is the most refreshing spray that I have used. Aloe is second on the ingredient list. I already knew about Hyaluronic Acid being fantastic for skin in reducing wrinkles, the Matrixyl 3000 is rather new to me. I am not sure about it's long term effects on my skin, but in the meantime, this spray is nourishing my rosacea prone, reactive skin.

Oh my land, do I love this makeup remover. I have a varying routine when it comes to my skin, and after using the L'Oreal import, the Simple micellar water and this Micellar Water, I have come to the conclusion that the waters are magic.

I love how this helps me skin steps for cleaning if I am in a hurry and it doesn't burn my skin like makeup wipes tend to. Oftentimes, I …

My skin does not like Kansas City in the Wintertime. For some reason, the combination of the water to wash up with, the air is dry and irritating to my cheeks and cause them to flare up with redness and dehydration.

I ran out to Target to pick up a more emollient face moisturizer and stumbled upon this gem. I know that everyone freaks out over oil free, etc if they have oily or …

I believe that I have written that I have rosacea in nearly every single review I have ever done. That said, it's important in this instance.

I am very very fair, I have neutral undertones but very reddened cheeks so it's difficult for the Sephora staff to match me. This is not their fault, I am just complicated. I find that this formula in Fair Sand is perfection for me. I …

Blush - Sleek MakeUP - MakeUP Blush - Rose Gold

I adore this blush. I am extremely pale so keep that in mind. It is a really fun color with the golden shimmer and the rosy under pigment. I have to use a very light hand or I turn into a shimmer bomb. ;) It extremely pigmented and definitely long lasting. The fade is evenly but the wear time is very long. If you want to tone down the shimmer a bit, use a mattifying setting powder over it.
