Hi, my name is Suze and I’m a concealer addict. Allow me to justify this in that my under eye area is very, very dry. My nose and lids might be a Mc Donald’s grease trap but areas in the vicinity are the Mojave desert. Thus it is extremely difficult to find something to hide the allergen misery/lack of sleep (hi, menopause!) I experience often that doesn’t make the dry areas reptilian in …Read more

My skin: combination to dry, fine lines, likely menopausal ( I'm 47.)
Tone: light to medium depending on Sun exposure; NC25 in MAC for reference. Warm undertones.
Issues: aforementioned fine lines, redness. Tendency to be very dry except my nose which could support small countries with the oil production.
Bless the previous reviewer for mentioning their skin tone and the color …

Concealers - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Hydrating Camo Concealer

This just might be a $6 dupe for Tarte Shape Tape; so far so good. First of all being a woman of a certain age/dry skin matte concealer is no bueno. Any scaly patches or puffiness are highlighted like a neon sign. I also work a relatively physical job so sweat is a factor; I need something that'll stay put.
Enter this gem: I will say much like the matte counterpart it dries down VERY …

Would I buy this at retail? Hell and no, but I do receive a deep discount where I work so it’s not as painful as it would be full price.
I prefer this to the Hydrablur as it has some tint, luminosity and SPF. I wish it were a bit less sparkly but it is what it is. As with the aforementioned primer applying with a downward motion will help to conceal pores and provide a smooth appearance. A …

I saw the previous review stating this was a dupe for CT and a look at both ingredient lists cements the claim. The CT may have hylauronic acid but that's about it ( and other botanical extracts). I got a huge tub for $15 via Amazon which is cheap considering; a similar size of the other would likely be in the thousands.
The only caveat about this ( from an esthetician perspective) is …

I’m so bummed this didn’t work for me; the colors were gorgeous, the wear exceptional BUT... I was allergic. We were told in esthetician school that if anything is going to irritate a person’s skin it’s fragrance, and thus was the case for me.
I had to return it with a heavy heart. I wish they’d make one unscented because I know I’m not the only sensitive skinned person out there. TF shadows …

Brows - benefit Cosmetics - Precisely, My Brow Eyebrow Pencil

This is my 2nd one; I rarely find a pencil which matches my hair perfectly so I happily repurchased (well, happily at 1/2 off during the Ulta sale.)
2.75 is a GREAT match for redheads. Many touted towards we ginger folk tend to be either too cool (ashy) or warm (orange.) At the risk of sounding like Goldilocks this is just right.
As a side note I tried the Fenty pencil and it was …

I have spent ridiculous amounts on lip balms including Drunk Elephant (numerous times) but once I found this my search has ended; this is perfect. I actually bought 2: one for work & one to apply at night when I’m home.
I was religiously exfoliating, applying balms prior to lipstick, using lip creams, the whole 9. My lips would still be dry and flaky; this has really hydrated and keeps …

Florida proof, sweat proof, lower lash line proof, holds a curl, makes lashes look long and defined... What’s not to love?! Well, trying to take it off but that’s a minor caveat compared to all the benefits.
I do an oil cleanse for my 1st cleanse (Dermalogica) and that’s even not enough, so maybe a balm would work better? I have found micellar water to be somewhat helpful as well.
I had …

Lipstick - Lisa Eldridge - Plush True Velvet Lipstick Colour

I missed the 1st release but jumped on the 2nd; I have an unhealthy obsession with red orange lipstick and Velvet Morning was perfect. I usually gravitate to Charlotte Tilbury (Tell Laura) and it’s (LE) a bit drier in comparison.
It’s a matte but not terribly drying and the lasting power is insane. The color swatches online are very true to life and I wasn’t disappointed. However, there are …
