Pressed Powders - Hourglass Cosmetics - Ambient Lighting Powder - Dim Light

Aug/27/2015

If you want to blur imperfections and look more youthful, I highly recommend Dim Light. I am very fair, so it shows up on me almost like a very light bronzer. I dust it at my temples, cheek bones and on the bridge of my nose. It doesn't sparkle, just looks like a healthy glow. I bought the sample size from Sephora, so if you're on the fence, start there. I have also used it as an …Read more

Liquid - Charlotte Tilbury - Light Wonder Youth Boosting Perfect Skin Foundation

Aug/27/2015

Charlotte Tilbury is a genius! This is like liquid gold for my fair skin. Light Wonder goes on very easy and has moderate coverage. I dab on and blend with a brush.

I have been on the hunt for some time to find a foundation that would complement my skin. So for me to find a product that checks all the boxes is nothing short of a miracle.

My boxes: Dewy, Chemical Free …

BB Cream - Tarte Cosmetics - BB Tinted Treatment Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Jul/21/2015

Excellent for hot, humid, summer days! I have very fair skin, with age related dryness, but get shinny when it's over 90 degrees. To me this is more of a primer than a moisturizer. The product comes in Fair, which is very fair, I need to add Light to get a wear alone shade in this BB cream. It's a bit pink too. I've tried blending it with other foundations and some work, some …Read more

Jun/02/2015

I have been on the hunt for a eye primer that works on mature eyes and doesn't crease. This is the first product that has performed for me without increasing lines and wrinkles or creasing.

This is what Tarte says about it "A waterproof 12-hour smoothing eye primer that locks eyeshadow in place while preventing fallout and migration for true shadow …

Jun/02/2015

I was looking for a powder to use during the hot, humid months in VA. The product benefits sounded like an absolute match for all the points I wanted:

Oil control
Sun Protection
Portable
Skin Perfecting

I am very fair skinned and have cheek and nose redness that I like to cover. I bought "fair", because the "light" was too orange for my …

Jan/08/2015

Splurged and bought 2 of these based on MUA reviews. (Rose Gold and Grey Pearl) I have hooded eyes and dry skin. I've been smokey eye challenged until I tried these. So easy to use. I put the product directly on my finger first and use my finger to lightly apply to my lid and crease. Then I use the product on it's edge to line my lower lash line. After the lid sets, I add a second …Read more

This is my first purchase of UD. Our teen daughter loves it. It's a bust for me. I was so excited to try an all matte pallet.

The colors are nice to look at, but when I went to apply, it flew everywhere. I am used to M.A.C. and Laura. I have always used brushes to apply and I like to blend, but this was too powdery for my taste. Powder settled into all my fine lines and I …

Eye Primer - Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion Anti-Aging

2.0

Oct/03/2014

Not good for mature crepe eyes. Didn't ever set. Grabs shadow in an uneven way. Draws attention to fine lines and made my eyes itch. My skin is fair, and this made them look orange before I started putting on shadows.

For a product that is suppose to be anti aging. I found it to be VERY drying and not at all flattering.

Tinted Moisturizer - LUSH - Colour Supplement

Sep/21/2014

I have sensitive, pale, mature skin. I can't wear silicone or SPFs so my range of choices for tinted moisturizer is pretty narrow.

Lush Jackie Oats appealed to me because of the ingredients and the perfect match shade for my skin. I have found it to be a bit too oily for Summer weather in VA. I can use it on my dry areas for a light conceal, but my nose and chin shine quickly …

I have been searching for a tinted moisturizer that evens out color but doesn't have SPF. I am very fair so it's a challenge finding one that doesn't make me look orange. I used Laura Mercier for years but started reacting to the SPF so I had to find something new. OCC Tinted Moisture appealed to me because of it's ingredients and the fact that Y0 is a perfect match. It …Read more
