Best under makeup primer for my over 50 dry skin, period. Best skin perfector to use when I don't care to wear additional makeup, period.
Side by side (using Benefit THE PORE fessional on one side of my face over a basic moisturizer & Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch on the other half)

Sep/22/2014

ibd just GEL COLOR in Seashell Pink is a PERFECT DUPE For OPI gelcolor in BUBBLE BATH (That is the OPI Soak Off Gel Color in Bubble Bath and it will cost you anywhere between $16.95 to $25 a bottle depending on where you buy it) I have both of these and it is impossible to tell the difference between the two, either in colour, application or wear time.

Polishes - MAC Cosmetics - Raffia

Created with Sketch.

Apr/17/2014

I just had to do it. I broke out a Vintage MAC Nail Polish from the mid to late 1990s called "Raffia" and decided to use it.
I'm not certain how long of a run this colour had. Mine was part of a GWP from Nordstroms which included two full sized MAC nail polishes: "Raffia" and "Gel" (Having nothing to do with Gel polishes), a 1 OZ bottle of MAC hand …

Polishes - wet n wild - MegaLast Nail Color - Wet Cement

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/15/2014

First of all, this does NOT look like "wet cement." I somehow thought that this would be a lighter, more taupe colour, given that, if you actually see it, in person, it DOES look lighter in the bottle and somewhat more like "wet cement."
Secondly, that's not REALLY a complaint because, in one coat to smooth opaque, over a base coat of butter LONDON, this came out …

Apr/06/2014

First of all, in general, I LOVE butter LONDON Nail polishes. So I expected to love "Crumpet" by butter LONDON. It came as part of a gift set of full sized neutrals directly from butter LONDON that also included "Yummy Mummy" (an HG and I have probably 5 bottles of this), "Shandy", "Crumpet' Tea and Toast" "Fash Pack" "All Hail the …Read more

FACTORY GREY, a Beautiful shade Blue/Grey Creme that is so different from a lot of those run of the mill taupes and greys, unique and with that touch of blue but not over-the-top, very classy, appropriate for any occasion and anywhere. Truly FANTASTIC as a Pedi with a Coat of Seche Vite on top.
THIS is OSU GREY (Go Bucks!) A Lot of Blue, Touch of Purple, Base of Grey. Check it against …

Polishes - Butter London - Aston

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/03/2013

First of all, despite the fact that I bought Aston, I got it as part of a collection and was actually thinking of either swapping it or putting it on eBay before I even cracked the seal. I was afraid the colour was going to appear too salmon against my somewhat cool toned very fair complexion.

I decided to give it a try first and I am very pleased that I did.

Base Coat: …

Polishes - Butter London - La Moss

Created with Sketch.

Jun/27/2013

I had a bottle of this and, thinking that La Moss was too dark for my skintone, I gave it away. Later I saw it after application on some nail & nail polish blogs and wished that I had not been so fast to get rid of this lovely, enticing but still uber classy colour.

La Moss is like that Simple Little Black Dress: Simple, Elegant, Refined and perfect for almost any occassion and …
