Tinted Moisturizer - RIMMEL - #Insta FLAWLESS Perfecting Radiant Skin Tint

To me this is a break-through beauty product, the best light foundation or tinted moisturizer I have ever used. I am NC 20 and the medium light version is perfect for my coloring. It also comes in a medium dark foundation, but that is too dark for me, even when blended with the light medium shade. If you have neutral to yellow undertones, this is worth a try.

Things I love about this …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Cremesheen - On Hold

Created with Sketch.

Dec/30/2017

I finally went to a MAC counter and was color coded (C3 and NC20). My skin is on the fair side with golden undertones. I have green/blue eyes that sometimes lean grey. The MAC lady picked out See Sheer as a lipstick color, which made my entire complexion pop -- it brightened my face in an enormous way. Suddenly I wanted more shades like See Sheer. So I went back to the MAC counter yesterday and …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Moon Drops Creme - Blase Apricot 702

Glad that Revlon still makes this shade. I recently discovered that Marilyn Monroe also liked it. "Other shades she was rumored to wear were Revlon Certainly Red, Revlon Hot Coral, Revlon Kiss Me Coral (that lovely orange red in Something's Got to Give), and Revlon Blase Apricot--all of which you can still find today."

Skincare - Face - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Rosehip Seed Oil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/20/2015

I decided to try rosehip oil on the fine lines under my eyes before bed. This is a real problem area for me as I cannot wear highlighters, concealer, or even foundation under my eyes as the lines seem to be exacerbated by any kind of product.

After trying the rosehip oil, the skin under my eyes was super smooth, looked plumper, and the lines were visibly reduced! I have decided that …

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - colorsensational Pink Satin

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/08/2015

Pink Satin is a sheer medium pink with a touch of strawberry. This is not a neutral pink with nude undertones, but a purer pink color, which is perfect for spring mornings when I want to brighten my complexion and appear more awake. There is a hint of shimmer. The formula is creamy upon application. However, it doesn't last so long, and it tends to feel a bit drying on my lips after wearing …Read more

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Toasted

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/26/2015

When I told the sales clerk at Sephora that I wanted something new in an eyeshadow from Urban Decay, but not a brown or a neutral, I was dismayed when she immediately chose Toasted, as it looked like any other neutral brown. But on my lids, it morphed into a wonderful mix of mink brown, dusky lavender, and a hint of dark gold. There is something magical about this shade and I would always hope to …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - porcelain pink

Created with Sketch.

Mar/24/2015

I had read Porcelain Pink was one of those universally flattering shades. I have warm colored skin, hazel eyes and brunette hair. On me, there is no warmth in this shade to complement my skintone. It ends up leaning to lavender pink, and completely washes out my coloring.

If you have a cool skin tone with pink undertones, I think this would be flattering and worth a try. If …

Eyes - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter

Jan/24/2015

I was surprised at how much I liked the concealer and the highlighter both. The concealer is wet enough to blend -- it seems a bit creamier than even higher priced brands, and has a bit of sheen without any glitter at all, just a kind of soft sheen. The highlighter reminds me a lot of Benefit's Oooh La Lift -- the same color and consistency. I bought this as iherb for very little money and …Read more

Conditioner - Neutrogena - Triple Moisture daily deep conditioner

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/24/2015

I routinely color my hair with Herbatint and need some help with moisture and body. I have tried a lot of conditioners that smooth out my hair, but they up leaving it a bit flat and heavy feeling. This conditioner on the other hand seems to like my colored hair and work with it. Especially if I let my hair air dry, it works really well. I lift it by simply fastening the crown hair, and then the …Read more

Moisturizers - CeraVe - Moisturizing Lotion - Normal to Dry Skin

Created with Sketch.

Dec/29/2014

I have been searching for a moisturizing cream that contains ceramides. I'm surprised that there are not more options for purchase in this category, given the apparently incredible effect they have on skin healing and beauty. I couldn't find a budget-friendly ceramides complex cream that was affordable other than the Cerave brand.

The problem with this brand is that it …
