Skincare - Face - L'Oreal Paris - Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof All Skin Types

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/24/2017

For eons I've been a devoted fan of DHC Deep Cleansing Oil as step one in my two-step cleansing process (step two is washing with Kirk's Fragrance Free Castile bar soap). However, the DHC is pretty pricey and also has to be ordered online, both of which are problematic. So, after reading and hearing about micellar water for a while, I decided to give the L'Oreal Micellar …Read more

Brows - MILANI - Stay Put Brow Color

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/21/2015

Wow, wow and more wow! I had been using e.l.f. brow powder in light (I'm blonde), and it's OK, does the job reasonably well. But after reading the raves about Milani's Stay Put Brow Color, I decided to give it a try. Well, I'm happy to say this one is IT! Following Milani's suggestion, I bought 02, Taupe, which they recommend for blondes. Perfect color, less ashy …Read more

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Black Black chromaline

Sep/22/2015

Having been a relative newbie in the Wonderful World of Tightlining, it took me a while to find the perfect cream/gel eyeliner for the job. Well, folks, MAC Chromaline in Black Black is IT! The glass pot is the same size as a Paint Pot, so the $20 price tag is well worth it. This stuff is perfection for tightlining--makes a smooth line, stays put, lasts the whole day, does not succumb to my …Read more

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Virgin Isle Cream Colour Base (CCB)

Aug/12/2015

Oh, Happy Day! So glad to have stumbled across all the rave reviews for this delicious product! As others have noted, Virgin Isle looks clowny-scary in the pot...but it's not. It seems to me this color could be sheered out to suit almost anyone's skin tone (for the record I'm MAC NC20).

I'm having great success applying a couple of dabs with fingertips on each …

Lipstick - Almay - Smart Shade Butter Kiss Lipstick

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/29/2015

Having become very disenchanted with Revlon's Lip Butter (twists around in the tube, then smushes all over inside of tube and outer cover, messy, embarrassing to take it out in public...need I go on?), I took a chance on Almay's Butter Kiss. Hooray! Love the texture, love the colors, product is more "solid" than the Revlon so I'm hoping it won't smush. I first got …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Colorburst Lip Butter - Pink Truffle [DISCONTINUED]

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/24/2015

Well, I've broken down and re-purchased Revlon Pink Truffle Lip Butter more than once because of the color--on me it really is an MLBB shade. Sort of browny-pink and very moisturizing. But...but...but...the packaging! Oh, dearie me. As another reviewer has explained in detail, the product smushes out of shape, kind of twisting around in the tube when you're not even half-way down. …Read more

Blush - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Super-Blendable Blush

Jul/21/2015

Looks like I'm very late to this party--somehow I only just stumbled across L'Oreal's True Match Super Blendable Blush. Since I'm very fair (N2 in L'Oreal's color system) I went with their color recommendation and chose Precious Peach. This is absolutely perfect for me, especially when applied gently with my NARS Yachiyo 27 brush. Easy to do a light layer of …Read more

Makeup Brushes - NARS Cosmetics - 27 - Yachiyo

Jul/21/2015

Well, I'm sorry that a number of people have had bad experiences with this brush, but the same isn't true for me. I knew I needed some kind of "light handed" brush, i.e. one that could lay down a light dusting of heavily pigmented blush--and this one IS IT for me! I actually did get mine from eBay and as far as I can tell, it is the real deal, down to the NARS packaging and …Read more

Concealers - Maybelline New York - Fit Me Concealer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/16/2015

So I was visiting a relative on the left coast and one morning I banged the side of my head on the bathroom sink (don't ask). Small gash but eventual big black and blue and yellow mark. Didn't have concealer with me, just a "lumi", which didn't offer enough coverage. Found Fit Me concealer at CVS, bought #10, the lightest shade, went home and gave it a try. Amazed at …Read more

Jul/16/2015

You just KNOW a brush cleaning tool is terrific if you find yourself wanting to wash your brushes when it's 2am and you can't sleep. This is Sigma's smaller brush cleaning glove and I am in love, love, love with it! It has different textures for washing, rinsing, re-washing if desired. I'm finding myself cleaning my brushes much more frequently since I got this baby. …Read more
