I have been all over the map searching for a great fdtn for my 60y/o newly drier skin. Any of my dept store favorites are either d/c or a dry patchy mess (even w/a dot of Mac Strobe my hg). A variety of drugstore fdtns did not work out either. I ordered the Bourjois Healthy Serum based on reviews here expecting the magic; nope.

I found this at TJ Maxx for 3.99 in the shade of …

Liquid - Bourjois - Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation

I ordered this online as it is not avail in the USA. Mac NC15/20 I ordered #51 and it's not a bad match. I am not loving this the way I thought I would. It has no staying power. I use my usual moisturizer, then primer, or no primer, or adding a dot of Mac Strobe which usually can fix anything. If I apply more heavily, it's cakey. If I apply lightly, the coverage is decent but …Read more

I received a sample at my local CVS (unusual in itself) and was excited to try it as I am always looking for a glowy fdtn for my dryish just-turned-60 skin. This does have a glowy finish; however as noted below it has no staying power even with setting powder. The slightest touch and it's wiped off. The sample was Natural Beige, a bit too dark for my NC15/20 skin but doable for a day. …Read more

Feb/02/2018

I decided to try this based on reviews here. I am not a Nars fan in general. I got the smaller size and I really love it for concealing under my eyes. I am late 50's, dryish skin, not very wrinkled, NC15/20 and I got Custard which I thought would be too dark but it's fine. What I love is that this never creases or settles into crinkles. The coverage is not completely opaque, but my …Read more

Liquid - Almay - Age Essentials Makeup

Dec/30/2017

I bought this based on a review that compared it to Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum (not available here). I found this too heavy for my late 50's dryish skin. I bought 110 Light Neutral, close enough to my usual NC15/20. It's too thick, even combined with the magical Mac Strobe cream. Not particularly longwearing either. Maybe in my younger more oily days this might have worked. I …Read more

Shampoo - Alberto VO5 - Strawberries and Cream Smoothing Shampoo

Mine says Moisturizing not Smoothing. This is actually my HG body wash, smells great, lathers nicely and not drying. I've used it on my dry color-treated hair in a pinch, with the same results as my sulfate free shampoos. I wish the top was easier to remove.

Polishes - Essie - Sure Shot

I chose this for a manicure yesterday so I have not purchased the polish and cannot speak for its longevity in the bottle. It definitely leans more purple/magenta than the pic above which is more fuchsia on my screen.

I won't buy bc it's not a color I will use often but I love it on my nails and it is a pretty and fun color. Two coats gave me a perfect finish.

Feb/28/2017

I received a generous sample of this. I have tried it in every configuration and it turns my already dry color-treated hair into desert-dry color treated hair. I don't know what is in it that reacts like this but I can't think of any other product that has dried out my hair this much. Nothing I add to my hair will change this. It has to be shampooed out. I actually threw it out and …Read more
