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. 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

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 …

When I first applied this, it sank right into my skin and didn't leave it feeling very moisturized, so I wasn't sure I would like it. HOWEVER, I'm happy to report that there is an impressive difference in my skin after only using it seven days! I've been very sleep deprived lately, and that's something that usually makes my skin look very dull and dehydrated, but even …Read more

When I bought this, II didn't realize this is marketed towards curly hair (mine is straight), but I'm glad I left my glasses at home and didn't see that, because this stuff is wonderful for my long, straight, highlighted hair. It leave my hair feeling really good, and it makes it smooth and shiny. It's great for frizz. The thing I like best is that it seems weightless. My …Read more

Hair Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Pravana Hydrating Intensive Leave-In Treatment

Oct/24/2017

Warning: if your hair rebels at protein products, do not use this. I had no idea it is a protein spray. It doesn't say anywhere on the front about it having protein. You have to read the ingredient list (which is in the tiniest print) to see that it contains protein. This stuff made my hair smooth, but it also made it feel dead and strawlike. My hair did not like this product at all. I …Read more

Treatments (Face) - GUERLAIN - Abeille Royale Face Treatment Oil

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/08/2017

I got a generously sized sample of this face oil, enough so that I had a good, long time to evaluate it.

All I can say is: ho-hum.

For an oil, it really wasn't very oily at all. Perhaps this is because it has alcohol in it. It seems strange to put alcohol in an oil, but whatever. While it didn't make my skin feel dried out, it didn't make my skin feel …
