Picked this up in the shade Soaking Up the Sun and tried it today. It is a very buttery creamy formula that has a good amount of shine and pretty decent pigment. Even 4 hours after I applied my lips still had pigment and moisture so I'm pleased and may try another shade. Will be a nice summer lip balm to wear when I want to look good but also natural and sunkissed. However I did take off a …Read more

I bought this last year. I kept avoiding it because I had seen all of the negative reviews so I figured it would just be a big disappointment but I still stopped to admire the colors every time I was in Sephora. Finally I could resist the temptation no longer and I bought in spite of all the awful things I had heard.

I have to say I have created some really beautiful looks with this …

Surprised this product doesn't have more reviews. I got a small jar of this serum as part of a kit that I purchased at sephora. Of all the products in the kit this serum was the one I fell in love with.

It feels so hydrating and refreshing going on and it smells delicious. The scent is like a sweet vanilla but very subtle. The serum is solid in the jar but immediately melts into a …

I really like this bronzer. I have a Too Faced bronzer and a Tarte bronzer and I think I prefer the physician's formula bronzer. I just started wearing bronzer on a regular basis about a year ago and I think this butter bronzer is great for people who are nervous about bronzers turning them orange or looking cakey

This bronzer goes is lightly pigmented which is great in my …

I have this gloss in 2 shades and I wear them often. At my age adding some color to my lips is a must but I have to be picky about the formula and the wear. Anything too matte or to opaque is aging and unflattering. Same with too metallic or too bold. I think natural sheer colors with a nice satin sheen look most flattering on mature ladies and this gloss meets that criteria. I like that …Read more

So close to holy grail status...and yet not quite.

First lets get the negatives of this foundation out of the way. Is it drying? Yes it can be, depending on how dry your skin is and how much you put on. Does it oxidize? Yes on some people. Does it smell? Yes. It does not have added fragrance so it smells a little like paint, like that wet and wild foundation but not quite as strong …

This is such an odd product that I can't make up my mind how I feel about it. Some days I really quite like it and other days I hate it. I have it in 2 shades. Tan and Medium and I usually have to combine the 2 together to get the right shade. When you first put this on it looks like it's giving really good medium to full coverage but after it has had about 15-20 min to settle it sort …Read more

This is a moisturizer that I have purchased a few times. Right after Xmas this year Sephora was selling a kit that contained a full size jar of this moisturizer and a little pouch of make up remover wipes. It was only 15 bucks so I bought two but now I wish I had bought 3 or 4 as in the pastI have paid $50 bucks just for the moisturizer alone. Now that being said this product doesn't …Read more

I alternate between the Fit Me concealer and Age Rewind concealer. Both are excellent and even though I have a bunch of higher end concealers these are my favorite.

I see a lot of people comparing the Fit Me concealer to the Nars Radiant Creamy concealer. I have both and I can say that Nars creamy concealer in custard is almost exactly the same shade as the Fit Me in Sand. Nars wins …

This is hands down, one of the best under eye concealers I have ever used. I first got it in the neutralizer shade which was waaay to light for me so I never used it more than once or twice. At that time I also thought it was a bit thick and chalky. Went back to using my fit me concealer (which is also a very nice concealer for money). Eventually I went and bought 2 more shades of the age rewind …Read more
