Eyeliner - Estée Lauder - Double Wear Stay-In-Place Eye Pencil - Coffee 02

This shade is about as dark as I will go for lining my eyes: I'm 60 this year (NC25, blue eyes, blonde) and black/dark navy are too harsh and aging on me, but this rich coffee/chocolate shade makes my eyes pop. Goes on like a dream, pretty good at staying put (really, no pencils are that great at staying in place, and if you are starting to develop a little crepey-ness under your lower …Read more

Highlighters - BECCA - Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid - Pearl

5.0

10 days ago

I've had this one for a while and only stopped using it because the plastic bottle cracked just below the pump assembly. It's very sheer, probably the sheerest I would choose for a highlighter, because you want to see something. but that works for me because I'm 60 and I really don't want any large mica/shimmer particles on my face. Not a good look. I want luminous, and …Read more

Lips - Burt's Bees - Tinted Lip Balm - Red Dahlia

3.0

10 days ago

I was excited to try this as my lips have been super-chapped lately (moved to a different part of US and suddenly my lips are irritated, dry and everything seems to sting them. local water? ) and my regular lipsticks and glosses have aggravated the problem. I was excited to find a shade with a rich, deep, MLBB color, but I find the consistency to be heavy, waxy and uncomfortable to wear. …Read more

My mom gave me this. She wasn't overly impressed by it (got it from her stylist) and had moved on to another brand. I've used it for months (a little goes a long way) and I liked that it detangled my shoulder-length, fine, damaged, color treated hair, but it's not enough to combat the damage done by age (60+), environment, thyroid meds, chemicals and daily stress. The damaged …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Sunday Riley - Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment

3.0
Created with Sketch.

17 days ago

I got this as a Sephora sample so I only used it for about 10 days. It's a thick, viscous cream that sits on top of your skin and feels slightly tacky. I don't know the brand other than it's expensive. My skin is mature (60 yrs.), combo, not a lot of sun damage or wrinkles, but I've been using lactic acid serums for a few months now (in the am, immediately after cleansing …Read more

Lip Gloss - Soap & Glory - Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Lacquer

2.0

1 month ago

Bought this in "Plumsup." I'm older, my eyes are bad so I just grabbed a drugstore lippie with a wand and a color shade that looked okay for my NC25 skin. I don't use lip plumping products (mine are fairly full, even in my sixth decade) but I figured it couldn't hurt. Unfortunately, it did. The slight stinging sensation really irritated my already dry lips and …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - The Multiple - Orgasm

3.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

I've purchased two of these and although at first I really liked it, I think my good will is tempered by realizing that the shade is two warm for m NC25 complexion (I do better with cool toned pinks), and that it's overpriced for what you get. My skin is combination and the driest parts are where I apply the Multiple. It gets grabbed by my skin and it's hard to blend it in. It …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Skin + Pharmacy - Advanced Anti-Aging Therapy Retinol Eye Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

Not the HG of retinol eye creams, but this CVS brand does sink into dry skin quickly (I like to pat it gently with my ring finger) and doesn't overly puff up my eyelid skin. I'm not so sure I really need a separate eye cream (I purchased this a while back before I started using serums) but this one is relatively cheap, does no harm and seems to hydrate my mature skin. It contains …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Aquaphor - Advanced Therapy Healing Ointment

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

When even plain old Chapstick and Carmex irritated my hyperchapped lips, a little dab of Aquaphor ointment soothed the dryness and redness. I like to use it on my super-crocodiley heels (rub in and put on a clean sock) and on my hands before I put on latex gloves to scrub the bathroom. It penetrates better than plain old petroleum jelly (also includes mineral oil; ceresin; lanolin; alcohol; …Read more
