I recently had a craving for this tried-and-true Moisturizer. Mostly, I craved the scent, which reminds me of my beloved little Mom, whom I lost nearly 6 years ago to breast cancer. One of my very first memories of her skincare routine involves this moisturizer.

I have fickle, sensitive, mostly dry/dehydrated skin which has now reached its 44th year. After cleansing with Albolene …

Lipstick - REVLON - Colorburst Matte Lip Balm - Sultry

Nov/05/2017

I purchased the shade “Sultry” from Amazon, without having tested it in person. I tend to avoid mauve shades, and probably should’ve skipped this one. It’s not horrible with my complexion (NC15), it’s just that I prefer either more red or more brown shades. I think the chemistry of my skin causes Sultry to veer into the pinker/mauve tones. While comfortable to wear, I suspect I won’t reach …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - ColorBurst Matte Balm - Standout

This matte balm is more comfortable than I was expecting. “Standout” is a lovely warm brick-red shade, which I find to be quite wearable. For me, I would describe this as an everyday red, because I tend to select brighter and more intense reds for evening wear.

As others have mentioned, this balm is not transfer-resistant.

There is a peppermint scent and subtle taste …

I don’t easily award a product with the name *Holy Grail*, but this is one of them! How do I love thee? Let me count the ways!

Following cleansing and moisturizing, I spritz this all over my face and neck. I then apply my makeup, usually a TM followed by some artistically placed concealer. A tiny dusting of powder along my cheeks and jawline to set, then I totally mist my face …

Nov/04/2017

I purchased this hydrating serum several weeks ago, in the hopes of achieving benefits from the hyaluronic acid content. The presentation of the package is beautiful, and serves the very French/German OCD aspect of my expectations. Who wouldn’t love a cerulean blue vial of a “magical” serum?

The serum is a wonderful and light moist texture, as I had expected. However, there is a …

Red lipstick is a lifelong love for me, the epitome of classic elegance. A swipe of a perfect red, and my skin looks instantly more luminous and I feel glamorous! No wonder red is always the most popular lipstick shade in France, decade after decade. Although some women may be apprehensive about wearing red lipstick, I think they should all try it, at least now and then.

Rimmel …

Oct/14/2017

I had first used Advanced Night Repair when I was in my mid-twenties. Having few skin concerns back then (and not noticing much improvement), I stopped using the expensive product after the first bottle so I could free up cash for more "fun" cosmetics like lipstick!

Fast forward to today, I'm 44-years-old. Now that I am noticing less radiance, a rougher skin texture …

First off, I'll just say that I am not much of an eyeshadow person anymore, now that I'm older (age 44), and have not-so-gracefully achieved more "hooded" eyelids.

That being said, I absolutely ***LOVE*** this L'Oreal eyeshadow! Don't let the name "Iced Latte" mislead you, it is a very light champagne-like hue. The light color makes this …

I absolutely LOVE this lipgloss! I purchased the Red shade # 306 from Amazon.

To me, the texture feels slightly more comfortable than NARS gloss, sticky, but not overly so. Besides, the stickiness is what makes it last! I don't glop it on, so perhaps that makes the difference for me. I have not experienced the "glued together lip effect," mercifully. If you're …

Oh, how I love this powder!
First of all, I should clarify that I do indeed use this highlighter as my setting powder, rather than an actual highlighter. I'm quite pale, so it works as my powder. I set my foundation or tinted moisturizer, and concealer with this powder.

As other reviewers have relayed, once you get past the initial "over spray" of glitter (which …
