Lipstick - Estée Lauder - Pure Color Envy Hi-Lustre Light Sculpting Lipstick

A beautiful formula, I bought mine in the shade 321 Nectarine. It's a very pretty warmer red with a coral tone. No big chunks of sequin-like glitter, it is a soft almost pearlescent shimmer and very moisturizing. I am sure this colour would look well on just about anyone; but I feel it is best suited to redheads of any shade; I am blue eyed, and it even highlights my eyes a bit. A lot of the …Read more

Moisturizers - CLARINS - Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Silky Cream

Aug/11/2018

This is a good, basic, fine-quality hydrating cream. It does not promise to repair or add firmness (which rarely works anyway), nor does it alter the skin in any way except to hydrate it; and it does a great job of that! I have combination skin that tends toward dryness especially in winter, of course. It is enough to make a difference in my skin without going overboard with oiliness or a heavy …Read more

Blush - Laura Mercier - Second Skin Satin Cheek Colour - Lush Nectarine

Love this blush by Laura Mercier.It took me awhile to find it, everyone seemed to be sold out when I wanted to get one! It is vibrant in the pan, I was shocked when I first saw it- but it is a beautiful shade of peachy (nectarine) sweetness that is so delicate on when applied with a soft brush. Be careful, it does want to go on deep, but it is easily controlled if just lightly brushed across the …Read more

Love this new mascara from Laura Mercier. I bought the Coffee Bean shade, and it makes my blue eyes appear even bluer. The shade turns a nice dark brown with no red tones to it; it is a great alternative to black mascara, which can look harsh at times. I was a bit concerned that the brush would be too big for me, but no worries it went on like a dream. The application is wonderful: It volumizes …Read more

Eye Shadow - Laura Mercier - Luster Eye Shadow in Bamboo

Jul/11/2015

I have reviewed a Petite Shadow Palette I bought about three or four years ago which contained Bamboo along with two other shadows. It was a seasonal set for Christmas; and was a good introduction to Laura Mercier Shadows as they offered three different combination colour sets. I loved the Bamboo in my set and since I was almost out of it, I bought a full-sized shadow in the shade recently. It is …Read more

Blush - Bobbi Brown - Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks in Pale Pink

Apr/19/2015

I love this Pale Pink colour for my fair skintone, and needed a decent cream blush. It makes me look healthy and just flushed enough to look as though I had been dancing; or at least otherwise exercising! Not too greasy; but moist, and easy to blend. This type of blush formula is recommended oftentimes for mature women, as the powders tend to get cakey and emphasize fine lines or wrinkles. I …Read more

Scrubs - Laura Mercier - Flawless Skin Face Polish

Jan/17/2015

Add me to the list of Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Face Polish fans. It is truly marvelous; I tried it just yesterday and woke up to wonderful smooth and silky skin. It's sandy nature is perfect for not scratching the complexion, and it thoroughly cleans as well. Some of the exfoliators have beads that are too large and can feel rough to the touch. I have drier skin at my age and it can be …Read more

Lipstick - Laura Mercier - Creme Lip Colour in Sparkling Pink

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/18/2014

Laura Mercier's Sparkling Pink used to be called Pink Champagne. One of the best YLBB or nude lip colours available. I have not found one better. It is basically a soft beiged pink with a bit of grey so it does not lead too warm. There is a soft, cushiony and rich texture which is very satisfying to wear. My lips feel hydrated and saturated with colour. It is not sheer, but a full coverage …Read more

Eyeliner - Laura Mercier - Longwear creme eye pencil

Aug/18/2014

Being a Laura Mercier fan, and having need for a good eye pencil again; I went down to see the new Longwear Creme Eye Pencils. This line never ceases to amaze me; even the most mundane looking colours are great once on. Since I have oily eyelids, and most pencils don't work on me; I tend to go toward gels and liquid liners; but I am never satisfied with the look. I also like the convenience …Read more

The newest addition to the Estee Lauder line, Perfectionist Youth-Infusing Makeup SPF 25 is infused with their age-defying Perfectionist Serum to make a lovely, creamy formula specifically formulated for mature women, although I think anyone who wishes medium to full …Read more
