Lipstick - CHANTECAILLE - Lip Chic in Violetta

The purpose of this review is mainly to help people on the shade. Lip chics are, to me, the very utmost in lipstick. It's all I buy. The texture is so divine, and they are pretty long lasting for a sheer lipstick. This shade is pretty, but not for my coloring (fair/neutral blonde). Though it looks sort of garnet reddish in the tube, it pulls magenta when applied and is too bright on my …Read more

I'm 59 with crepey, dry, lifeless skin on my lids and under my eyes. I also have dark circles and some puffiness. This product is a real game changer. After only 3 days, my dark circles m were already quite a bit lighter, and now that 3 weeks have gone by, the overall condition of the eye area is better. In the beginning, I put an eye cream on top, but now I'm skipping the eye cream …Read more

Really surprised by the hype surrounding this. On my dry skin, it is not luminous at all. It's got a very dull and flat finish. Coverage is buildable, good shades to choose from, but other than that, this is nothing special. It's probably better suited to combo skin instead of dry skin.

Cleansers - Noxzema - CLASSIC CLEAN Original Deep Cleansing Cream

I'm 59 and have been using it since age 12. My skin looks very good for my age, and I frequently get asked "What do you use?" Jaws drop when I say "Noxzema." I rub it in and use a wet washcloth to massage it off in small circular motions. This way, it cleans very well and the washcloth provides gentle exfoliation. It never dries my skin. The only bad thing is that …Read more

This is absolutely lovely! The shade is the best one I've ever found (Shade 255 C20 N) This is TRULY neutral. The finish is beautifully radiant. I've even had people stop me to say how radiant I look when I'm wearing this. I just look better when I wear this, and I attribute it to the spot-on color as well as the just-right coverage. The coverage is sheer/medium but can be …Read more

Concealers - NARS Cosmetics - Radiant Creamy Concealer

It does a good job of concealing and comes in a ton of shades, but I found it too drying for my under eye area. It made me look years older.
Absolutely awful! Even though it didn't settle into lines, it accentuated them after a few hours. I won't repurchase. I would have loved this 20 years ago, though!

Just to get this out of the way: If you have oily skin, don't bother with this. It won't work for you. I also don't recommend it if you have bad skin with lots of blemishes or blotches you want to cover.

Now, for those of you with fairly even skin that is normal to dry, and ESPECIALLY those of you who are over 50 with very dry skin, this is definitely worth getting. …

Liquid - NARS Cosmetics - Sheer Glow Foundation

I LOVE this foundation. At my age, I don't want anything too heavy, and yet I like to look polished. The coverage and finish is beautiful. It looks sheer on the skin but it covers like a medium coverage foundation. It evens out minor imperfections nicely and makes me look polished without looking heavily made up. You can't see it on my skin, but it just evens everything out. I …Read more

Loose Powders - Hourglass Cosmetics - Veil Translucent Setting Powder

If you have really dry skin and have struggled to find a good loose powder, you really should try this out. You can get it in a mini size at Sephora for around $18, so I suggest that before splurging on the full-size product.

I was using Chantecaille loose powder for several years and really liked it, but suddenly this year as my dry winter skin set in, I couldn't use the …
