HG alert! I am in my very late thirties with crepey eyelids and most concealers age me. I just use this now and some setting powder, and my dark circles are blurred out without the added wrinkle effect concealers give me. This is a permanent addition to my makeup bag now, i even have two. This is a really great product for olderish women who need some coverage but for whom concealer settles …Read more

Moisturizers - CeraVe - Healing Ointment

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/17/2016

I use this mainly as a lip balm and cuticle cream. I find it less greasy than aquaphor, which is what has me hooked (even though i still love aquaphor). I had a fever blister a few weeks back and the zovirax ointment was irritating my lips. Once the blister cleared up, this really helped with the chapping and scarring. I feel like the cerave sinks in better than aquaphor.

Blush - CHANEL - Joues Contraste Powder Blush in 260 Alezane

Dec/24/2015

You know how bobbi brown antigua is marketed as a bronzer even though it is pink, but then you put it on like a bronzer and it warms your skin up and looks like a bronzer without being a bronzer? Alezane is exactly like that, except it is more rosy than antigua. I really like this blush, there is also a kind of gold sheen which isnt over the top- i wore this yesterday with only a little …Read more

Lip Treatments - The Body Shop - Wild Argan Solid Oil Lips

Nov/15/2015

This is a decent, workhorse lip balm. I have tried everything from carmex to sisley, and this stuff is pretty good. This balm is average as far as balms go, but what is really nice is the price. You get a lot of product for a low price. This may be because argan oil is about midway through the ingredients list (nothing scary, standard stuff otherwise). Great night balm, great protectant- what i …Read more

Bronzers - Bobbi Brown - Illuminating Bronzing Powder in Antigua

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/04/2015

This is great stuff. Like others have said, my first thought was "how can a bronzer be pink" but it is and it is quite gorgeous. I am a total bronzer addict but this, probably because my skin is so pink already, really makes me look like i have been out in the sun. There is just enough brown in it to fake sun and just enough shimmer to keep it from going flat.

If you are a …

Lipstick - CHANEL - Rouge Coco Lip Colour - Mademoiselle

Jun/20/2015

This lipstick takes me back to high school and my favorite, long discontinued Lancome Brun Rose lipstick. For me this is a very 90s color, a brownish rosy shade on me.

Four lippies because the texture is slightly drying, but other than that it is a nice color. However, the dryness may be the tradeoff for the fact that this has good staying power for a chanel- it lasts me until about …

Bronzers - CHANEL - Lumiére d'été Illuminating Powder

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/20/2015

The Lumiére d'été LE bronzer for summer 2015 is less orange than the bronzers in Chanel's regular line. The formulation is also different- this has the gel-like consistency of some of the Estee Lauder products. The color on my NC15 skin leans reddish-brown but is perfectly wearable for pale girls. There is shimmer and it will show up with a heavy hand, but it did not emphasize pores …Read more

Lipstick - CHANEL - Rouge Coco Shine - 67 Deauville

4.0

Mar/15/2014

If Biarritz was too beige for you and Bel-Ami too pink for you, Deauville is right in the middle- it gives a nice nude lip that does not wash out and veers MLBB on my pale complexion. Biarritz used to be my favorite but now Deauville is my go to lipstick that always stays in my purse.

Wear is typical for rouge coco shines-on me, only a few hours. No strong scent (especially compared to …

Lip Gloss - CHANEL - Glossimer - Blizzard

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/22/2013

Blizzard is best described as a metallic MLBB on me. Color-wise,on me it is similar to the RA gloss in Troublant but with a lot more obvious glitter/shimmer and it leans a bit more brown-bronze.

The best use for it I have found is kicking up my look a touch if I go out in the evenings. I'm pale enough to where this color comes off as slightly dark on me. Especially as I …

Cleansers - La Roche-Posay - Physiological Micellar Solution

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/01/2013

I'm not big into the micellar solution craze and prefer either my shisheido perfect whip or some cleansing oil, but I usually keep a bottle of this on hand. I don't believe in using micellar water as a daily thing but what I love this for are the nights when I am absolutely too exhausted to go through my night routine and just need to get my makeup off and go to bed. It doesn't …Read more
