Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Backtalk Eye & Face Palette

Created with Sketch.


So far, I guess I’m the only one who loves this palette. The eyeshadows are soft and pretty. Yes, they are not very pigmented and have to be built up, but my mature lids look better in sheer colors. The darker eyeshadows are more pigmented. All wear all day without creasing with my WnW primer. As for the blushes and highlighters, I love them, as well. They work well with my skin tone, and last …Read more

Palettes - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Modern Renaissance Eye Shadow Palette

Created with Sketch.


This palette has enough reviews. The only reason I'm chiming in is because I'm 50 years old, and this is the first palette I've ever hit pan on. I'm NC20 leaning neutral, and I can wear every color in the palette. Even the reds are wearable and can be worn to the office when done right. I highly recommend this.

Blush - BECCA - Luminous Blush in Snapdragon

Created with Sketch.


I love this warm coral color. Applied lightly, it gives a nice bright warmth to my cheeks that lasts all day. I'm NC20, for reference. Also, Bite Amuse Bouche l/s in Sweet Cream is a perfect match for this blush. I like wearing them together.

Stick - Lancôme - Teint Idole Ultra Longwear Foundation Stick

Created with Sketch.


I just purchased my second tube of this. It's HG for me. I'm NC20, and 250 Bisque W is my perfect match. I have normal skin, and this foundation gives me medium coverage with a satin to matte finish. It lasts all day and does not crease or settle into pores. I swipe it on in sections and blend with my fingers, and it looks perfect every time. I rarely set it with powder. It doesn't …Read more

Eye Shadow - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Master Palette by Mario

Created with Sketch.


I hate to give this such a low rating, but it deserves it. I tried and tried to make this palette work, and after two months I tossed it. I'm so glad I got it for free using my Plenti points, so I didn't waste actual cash on this disaster. The shades are pigmented, but the glittery colors are muddy when blended, and the green and blue shade blend out to brown. The matte shades do not …Read more

Highlighters - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Lumi Powder Glow Illuminator

Created with Sketch.


I have this in the warm shade. It's expensive, $13.00, and is a terrible highlighter. It accentuates pores and gets glitter everywhere. I gave it a three because it makes for a good eyeshadow palette. I can get a soft, golden highlighted look with this, and I use the brown color for definition. I would never repurchase this, but I'm glad I found a way to use it, as I hate returning. If …Read more

Liquid - Estée Lauder - Perfectionist Youth-Infusing Makeup SPF 25

Created with Sketch.


First of all, do not buy this if you have oily skin. It will separate and look awful, as I've found after working out. Generally my skin is normal, and this product is perfect for me. I'm NC20 leaning neutral, and 2N1 is a perfect match. Also called Desert Beige. This foundation is medium to full coverage (if you layer it), and has a satin finish. I spread it with my fingers, and then …Read more

Scrubs - Laura Mercier - Flawless Skin Face Polish

Created with Sketch.


I just purchased my 2nd tube, so I thought this was worth a review. This scrub smells good, and while the larger size of the beads turned me off at first, I find them very effective. This leaves my skin smooth, soft and even. FWIW, LM tinted moisturizer leaves my skin the same way. Not sure what she puts in her products, but my skin loves them. I recommend giving this a try. It's $$, but a …Read more

Fragrances - Estée Lauder - Modern Muse Chic

Created with Sketch.


I rarely write reviews anymore, especially for fragrances, but this one deserves it. This is a strong, woodsy floral perfume. The tuberose, oud, patchouli and suede are quite prominent on my skin and work very well with my chemistry, personality and my age. I love the way I smell in this -- kind of soft, definitely strong and bold. This is for mature, confident women who dress well. Lasting power …Read more

Mascara - RIMMEL - ScandalEyes Show Off

Created with Sketch.


I bought this because I've heard good things about Rimmel mascara in general, and I was intrigued by the brush. This product is so dry, my lashes looked bare, even after three coats. I do not recommend this. If you like the brush, IT Cosmetics mascara has one exactly like it.
