I used to use the Brilliant Blonde silicone serum, but cannot find anymore. Tried a few other d/s products--ok but nothing great.

Tried the Tigi shine serum that looks like it's a cheeze whiz can-dude, yo! Only a tiny amount for us thin -haired girls. And looks like crap the day after. Plus no real shine. More like dirty hair. And not in the Kate Moss olden days look.NO WAY! …

Moisturizers - Sage Skin Care - Old Lady Cream

May/17/2009

If you check out some of my other reviews (for Sage Hydrating Emulsion) or notepad, you will know that I've been "moisturizer fear-based" forever.

I'd use retinoids since my 20s (I am now close to 50!! eeek! I mean, yo! What up to plastic surgery?) to clear up cystic acne/clogged pores. Unfortunately, if you check out the MUA Skincare board, redness, irritation, and …

May/16/2009

My skin is hormonally wack. Almost 50, but without the most special care/product, I get clogged pores, whiteheads, and even cysts. I live on the East Coast and get oily during the warmer months. Dry with flakes during the colder months. But, it seems that, thanks to the MUA Skincare Board, I've found a way.

Now I can't complain about the wrinkles because I've been using …

This is the perfect non-bronze or reddish dark brown with a bit of shimmer,http://makeupalley.com/product/rsearching.asp/ and it's perfect for my fair skin, blue eyes, ash blonde looks. Find the *perfect* brown is quite difficult for me. So *tired* of reddish browns or bronze that make me look overly done, if you know what I mean.

I go walking into Sephora thinking, "Well …

Skincare - Face - Unlisted Brand - Gauze fabric face cloths

5.0

Mar/19/2009

I buy bolts of gauze fabric made for clothing to thoroughly remove my cleanser and avoid irritation from "scrubs, toners," or harsh cleansners.

Best, the cloth is inexpensive and usually no more than $2.00/yard if you look in the bargain fabrics. *sigh* Fabric stores are becoming a thing of the past. But if in US, Joann is a good source--just be sure to sign up online or at …

Mar/17/2009

I LOVE the Dolly Spice (Pk).The Dolly Spice color is a lovely light raspberry pink with very light shimmer that I apply over MAC Coygirl (perfect complement in terms of color coordination) at the tops of my cheekbones and bridge of nose instead of a bronzer as it suits my fair coloring---bronzers tend to look like crap on me so this is the perfect way to glow.

The bottle is tiny but …

Powder - SHISEIDO - Majolica Majorca Pressed Fantasia 24h

Mar/17/2009

Edit 2009: Love this translucent powder because no breakouts, no cakey look, very light but not "whitening" for my ruddy-but-fair skin. Used with a brush, it works as a finishing powder. Pressed on with the flocked pad, it fills in pores without making them look like craters.

Also worth mentioning is that there is no shimmer and you can reapply without build-up--especially …

Dec/16/2008

I am in love with what this product is doing for my skin now that it's colder.

Me: mild rosacea, skin that gets seriously dehydrated from tretinon (Retin-A gel, RAM, and Renova) when the cold dry wind blows. Oily in summer. Prone to cysts and other forms of breakouts/clogs unless I use RAM at least once/week and then the milder Retin-A gel .01. Also use Renova once/week. I …
