I don't know if I could have used this when I was in my teens or twenties, but at 46 I find I like this stuff more than anything else I've tried recently.
I use it by applying to dry skin, massaging in gently, then letting it sit for a minute or two being rinsing off.
It is gentle and doesn't burn - my skirt n is sensitive and many products make my skin burn (including …

Lipstick - Palladio Beauty - Herbal Tinted Lip Balm in Brownie

Apr/29/2016

I feel guilty giving this only four lippies for packaging, because at $3.99 what should I expect? But it is standard lip balm packaging so there.
Anyway, this is better than Revlon Pink Truffle Butter Lipstick! It's the same color family, but even more moisturizing!!!
Yes it needs to be reapplied often. But if you have sensitive lips that peel from 99% of what's out there …

I love the color and the formula on my pale dry-ish skin. I top it with a smudge of powder or setting spray. I love the scent too.
I just read that it was re-formulated and is glittery now? I hope not.

Blush - COVERGIRL - Classic Color Blush - Natural Glow

I am NW-15 (or so I was once told), anyway I'm pretty pale. This blush is VERY natural looking, as in one shade darker than my skin.
The pan is decent size, bigger than the cheekers, so a good brush will work well.
I like the color and finish. There are no glittery or sparkly particles but there is something slightly luminous or gleaming going on, which I like.
I will …

Lips - SHISEIDO - Water in Lip

Apr/13/2016

This is better than all lip balms that I've tried that cost less than $10. It's not too waxy or oily, which is what cheaper balms tend to be.
I think this gives a very slight shimmer. It is moisturizing and has a plush feel to it.
It is not as good as Boscia Jujube Salve but is pretty close. But it is much better than the Nivea, Burts Bees, and other DS type brands out …

Lipstick - REVLON - Colorburst Lip Butter - Pink Truffle [DISCONTINUED]

I cannot wear 99% of lip products. My lips are weirdly sensitive and nearly everything dries them out.
But I can wear the Revlon Lip Butters! They moisturize! They add color to my drab face! They are inexpensive and very easy to find!
Pink Truffle is a great natural-looking color. I wish Revlon would add more colors like this one.

I really like this pencil because it is so easy and efficient (two products in one pencil!)
As other reviewers mention, the blonde color has no red in it, which can difficult to find.
The powder comes out in small controllable doses. I usually try to "sharpen" it by rubbing it in my hand at an angle. I will be sad if this gets discontinued.
I cannot argue with the price …

Primer/ Corrector - SHISEIDO - Glow enhancing primer

Nov/18/2015

It's probably premature but I am in love with this stuff so far.
It is glowy and dewy but not metallic in any way. It has a slight tackiness that seems good for applying foundation or powder over it. It's not a slippery primer at all.
I will update.

I was dubious, but at $3 I could take the gamble. This stuff is magical. I use an eyeshadow brush to apply this over my concealer. I am still looking for the concealer of my dreams to cover my dark circles, but this setting powder makes my current mediocre concealers look a lot better.

Concealers - NARS Cosmetics - Radiant Creamy Concealer

I was very happy to see that Sephora was selling mini sizes of Nars RCC (only 2 shades offered but I was lucky that one of those shades matched).
As happy as I was to purchase this much-hyped concealer, I was soon disappointed to find out that the formula was very very drying.
The Nars RCC settled into lines, looked thick and dried out the skin below my eyes.
