Started buying these when they came in a pot. Like the squeeze tube better. I’m thinking it won’t dry out as fast. Yesterday I used the warm beige color. It looked pink-toned on my lids. I used a very light layer of my favorite lid primer—Milani. Then this. If you blend it out it’s really quite sheer. I dusted some of my Mac shadow, All that Glitters, over the top and it was gorgeous. The texture …Read more

This lipstick brightened up my whole face. Magic. I have a more neutral skin tone and the hair around my face is white (I’m over 60). I’m finding these more peachy toned lipsticks are more flattering as I age. This lipstick with a peachy nude blush very nice for every day.

Have had loads of Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks through the years. Really my favorite drugstore lipstick. I like …

Just bought another tube of this mascara. I’ve owned it in the past and liked it. This time, however, I’m super impressed. It holds up so well. I can’t say the formula is particularly volumizing. You’re not going to achieve dramatic lashes with this. A good basic everyday look. Brush is pretty standard. I like that it’s not huge and I can apply without making a mess of it. I had been wearing …Read more

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Insta-Dri Nail Color - Coral Commotion

Just love this polish for my short nails. It’s a sheer coral nude with pink duo chrome is how I would describe it. It caught my eye walking by a display in Walmart. As warmer weather approaches I’ve been looking for warmer toned nail polishes.

First off I have really weak nails and keep them short. I only use one coat of these Insta-dri polishes and get pretty good longevity that way …

Concealers - Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Hydrating Concealer

I think this a very nice drugstore concealer. It glides on very easily. I bought the lightest shade which was a little too light and the next darker shade which is slightly too dark. That’s my complaint about a lot of concealers. Also if you have dark circles I don’t think it would provide enough coverage. But for me it’s just enough. I think it sets a little but remains creamy on the skin which …Read more

I’m on my second bottle of this. I use it almost everyday. I agree with those who say it isn’t a great makeup remover. I don’t use it for that. I like to use it in the morning. I use a warm washcloth first and then wipe my face down with this on a cotton round. I feel like it’s mild on my dry, 60 year old skin. Then I continue on with my normal skincare routine. My skin seems to like it. It’s …Read more

Blush - CLINIQUE - Blushing Blush Powder Blush - Cupid

Would agree with the positive comments about this blush. It’s not completely matte which is a plus in my book. No glitter. Nicely pigmented but not so pigmented that you can’t build it up a little. Color not too cool-toned which sometimes happens with my skin tone. Sturdy packaging. Included brush surprisingly works in a pinch.

Clinique is a good dependable brand for me. Makeup …

Really like this foundation now. Didn’t at first. I’ve read some of the complaints and I agree with them. I found it hard to spread over my face. I always use a primer and never usually have that problem. Also it didn’t want to blend into the skin. Just didn’t look good. I think it’s the kind of foundation that’s best to spread in with fingers so it melts into the skin better. And I don’t want …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Peacock Flare Waterproof Mascara

I happened to be at Big Lots about a week ago. They had some newer Covergirl cosmetics. I bought this mascara for $3.50. I like it. It’s a thinner formula so I like to apply one quick coat and let it dry slightly and then I’m able to build it up. Looks pretty good with two coats. The other thing I like is I’m able to do it fairly quickly. Very nice for everyday.

I priced this mascara …

I was at the MAC counter the other day looking for a peachy nude lipstick. The SA helped me find this shade. Love it! I have a lighter neutral skin tone. (I think). NC20 maybe. Anyway one of the reviews below described it as having some pink in the shade which surprised me. But I now think that maybe that’s why its a wearable shade for me. Most shades like this that look this brown in the tube …Read more
