I was shade matched yesterday at my local Macy's. The SA was pretty knowledgeable bout choosing my correct shade, which is Golden Neutral. I find that the shade names are very odd. There is nothing neutral about my skin color which is golden beige. NC40/42 in MC. There is NOTHING neutral about this shade, lol. It's heavily yellow based as it should be.
I am 53 with …

Lip Gloss - Sleek MakeUP - Pout Polish in Electro Peach

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/23/2016

I already owned this in Cadillac Pink, so I wanted to try another shade. Peach is one of those shades that varies so wildly that it's always a kind of crap shoot for a good shade fit for my NC42 skintone. This is a neon shade of orange, that applies quite sheer. It can probably be built up but it would be a sticky mess imo. I like this product for topping orange or coral lipsticks that need …Read more

Styling Products - Unlisted Brand - Proganix Smooth Flat Iron Finish + Hydration

Jan/25/2016

This review is for Proganix Smooth Flat Iron Finish + Hydration. The bottle is 5/1 fluid ounce and claims to protect against heat damage and smooth hair strands with "extracts up to 200x more potent than their natural raw state (noun). This makes no sense to me, but it's on the bottle. It was $2.97 in my local drug store and I thought I'd try it anyway. What makes it a bit …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) - TCA Peel

Oct/26/2015

This is really a next step up from my review about the Mandelic Peel from MUAC. Because my skin is aging/ethnic/acne/sensitive if is a real challenge to treat without making things worse. I say worse meaning having a reverse effect i.e. hyperpigmentation and additional pimples. Best to start slowly for these reasons.

Peel 1 was last week with TCA 12%. I washed my face, neutralized …

Lip Treatments - LUSH - Honey Trap Lip Balm

Oct/18/2015

I agree with what most reviewers are already saying about this product. It' s reasonably priced, it's sustainable, I smells good, it contains high quality ingredients, i's vegetarian friendly, not tested on animals. The LUSH staff at my local mall really seem to believe in their products and how to sell them. I would prefer not to dip my fingers into a tin, but other than that …Read more

Styling Products - BioSilk - Silk Polish

Sep/03/2015

I hope I'm posting this review in the right place. I bought the Biosilk Silk Therapy Original. That is all the bottle says. I wonder if Biosilk / Farouk is in the habit of switching up names of products within the line, which I really dislike. It makes it hard to find products and that can get really frustrating.

That said, $20.00 bought me 12 fluid ounces of product that I …

Who knew that Whole (Paycheck) Foods had a beauty department filled with mineral based mascaras? I didn't!

I was rushing to the office last week and caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and cringed after realizing I had forgotten to apply mascara! I rushed into Whole Foods and ran into a young man who helped me pick out something "black, thickening and reasonably …

Styling Products - Posner - Pressing Oil

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/10/2015

Ok, this review is for all the old school hot comb fans out there. I could not believe I reached for this product this summer, but it is so hot, so humid, that I bought it as a last resort. For those who are not familiar with it, pressing oil is an old fashioned blend of petroleum, lanolin, carnuba wax and some other oils that are known to clog the scalp thus keeping it from breathing …Read more

Moisturizers - Unlisted Brand - Route One Pumpkins Half Moon Bay Balm

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/21/2015

Every once in a while I come across a brand that is truly unique and special. My skin is super dry and cracks easily if I don't coat it with serious moisturizers. It's also sensitive, so I have to be super careful with chemical softeners, which often make my dry skin condition even worse. A friend sent me a small jar of Coastal Lavender Crème by Route One Pumpkins Half Moon Bay and I …Read more

Masks - Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) - Pumpkin Exfoliating Masque

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/28/2015

My skin is aging/acne sensitive and I was looking for a mask that acts quickly to bring back the smoothness and feeling of being freshly yet gently exfoliated. I didn't even sample this, I went for the whole jar and have no regrets. At my age I know what works best with my skin and fruit and vegetable enzymes seem to be great for me. I like MUAC's Triple Enzyme Peel however it …Read more
