BB Cream - L'Oreal Paris - Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream

2.0

Oct/13/2016

The highest mark I can give is for the price, because you don't need much and the cost is reasonable. That's about it. I am VERY fair and yes, this is far too orange. Even when using a small amount. More problematic is that I went from having fairly oily skin to very dry skin - aging + hormones - and this brings out that dry look. I do take care of my skin, I keep it clean and …Read more

Liquid - RIMMEL - Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation

5.0

Jun/19/2014

I have this in LIGHT PORCELAIN and it's a GREAT match for my skin. In MAC I use NC15, even that is a touch dark because the liquid oxidizes, the powder stays fairly true, though not a perfect match. Nars' Siberia matches well, but turns orange on me like pretty much every liquid foundation does! EXCEPT this one. I've been using this for weeks now and I'm shocked at how …Read more

Lipstick - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Rouge Artist Intense #32

Apr/11/2014

This is a VERY vivid pink on me! Bright POP of color. I usually shy away from bright colors, I'm very pale and too often bright colors look too clownish/extreme. This pink is NOT subtle, but I wanted something to brighten up my makeup for Spring/Summer and this is it! (Pale skin/brown hair and eyes, in MAC I'm NC15) For me, it is not an every day go-to color, but I am using it and …Read more

Apr/07/2014

My skin has changed over the years - I went from having pretty oily skin to having practically dehydrated skin! So it's been a battle to find products that work for me now since most products I used for years no longer do the job. Most of all foundations - I always used liquid or cream, not anymore, they really do settle into and highlight any dry spot I have. I've read/heard others …Read more

Lipstick - L'Oreal Paris - Privee Collection

2.0

Mar/04/2014

Oh well. I was so excited for this collection, thinking maybe I'd find one nude that worked for me! Lighten up the look for Spring! But no. I tried the Julianne Moore shade - way too frosty/orangey on me, the Eva Longoria - also an unflattering orangey shade on me, and the Jennifer Lopez - thought it would wear like a nice pinky-brown or brownie-pink, but went too pink on me. And all of …Read more

Hair - Salon Grafix - Healthy Hair Nutrition Moroccan Macadamia

Jan/27/2014

This review is for Salon Grafix Healthy Hair Nutrition Conditioning Cleanser for Dry or Damaged Hair "Moroccan Macadamia." Thanks to perimenopause (whoopdedoo!) my hair - and skin - have gone wild! Not in any good way. My hair started breaking easily, got much more frizzy, dry, unmanageable, dull. After much research I decided to try a sulfate free product. I also read that …Read more

Shampoo - Unlisted Brand - As I Am- Cleansing Pudding

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/19/2013

My hair is naturally wavy/curly, long and thick. It has also become very MOODY! Products I used to use to control frizz or dryness or whatever else stopped working for me - fun over the age of 40! I tried this on a whim after reading about good products that cleanse and also rid your scalp of buildup. I really like what this does for my hair - it cleans well, but also conditions and leaves it …Read more

Liquid - GUERLAIN - 'Lingerie de Peau' Invisible Skin-Fusion Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/05/2012

There IS a lighter shade of this available - # 01 Beige Pale - for the other pale faces here like me! It's hard to find, but it is available on line at a few sites, including strawberry.net For me that is the shade that blended in best - truly invisible with my skin color. It does have a nice finish and blends easily. As mentioned previously this has a VERY liquid consistency, which I …Read more

Blush - COVERGIRL - Cheekers Blush in Rock n Rose

Mar/29/2012

Agree with all the points previous reviewer made! I'm also quite fair (Mac nc15) and this color works on me. Not too brown, not too rose, right in between. And for the price it has great staying power! Packaging IS cheap, but that's not enough to stop me from repurchasing!
