Because I'm such a control freak about everything in my life, I decided to order individual eyeshadows from both MAC and Makeup Geek. I've read so many reviews that stated MUG was far surperior to MAC. Well. I digress! Both MAC and MUG are pretty-much on par with MAC in the lead by a hair for me. But--this is about MUG. I ordered Hipster, Shimma Shimma, Beaches and Cream And …Read more

Jan/30/2018

Always in the lookout for an affordable foundation, I purchased this from the stellar reviews I’ve seen on YouTube and read on the net. Since my skin is « mature «  and aging, at 62, I’m becoming more critical of foundation but not giving up.
First of all, the shade selection is limited. It’s often difficult to find a foundation for fair skin with pink undertones. I settled on a lighter …

I love this gloss so much that I went out and purchased a backup. I'll be purchasing one for every purse. First of all, I have a hard time trying to find the right color gloss--either they are too pale pink or too dark or too orange. And, I always have to apply foundation on my lips before applying gloss with any color because my natural lips are so heavily pigmented that the gloss always …Read more

As a foundation junkie, there was no way that I was not going to buy this foundation. I'm also not big on celebrity brands but after spending about 8 hours on and off watching YouTube reviews on the Fenty products, I really wanted to try this.
I'm 62 years old. My skin is dry. Very dry. My skincare routine is very important to me. Because of this I was a bit nervous to try but …

I never paid much attention to the Wet 'n Wild products. With the low pricing, I figured the makeup was pretty much garbage. Then I started watching YouTube beauty reviews and starting to rethink my somewhat snobby train of thought.

My first purchase was the oversized bronzer. I could not believe how great it was. I've since repurchased and even got my daughter hooked. …

I'm somewhat shocked at the lack of love this contour/highlight stick is receiving from reviewers. First of all, the fact it is a cream-based rather than powder is fantastic for more "mature" and older skin--like mine! Secondly, it is so travel-friendly--one little stick! Who wouldn't love that?
Anyway, I purchased this on a whim. I'm relatively new to the world …

Jan/18/2016

Honestly, I REALLY wish MUA had "Maybe" as a choice if purchasing again. I really AM on the fence with Beauty Blender.

First the good. This sponge does a remarkable job in blending foundation. Better than brushes and in most cases better than fingers. On my "mature" skin, it's all about the blend.

Next, the not-so-good: For the price point, I …

Please let me begin this review by describing the condition of my lips. They are aging. They are dry. They are chapped. They are lined. When I was younger I could wear any color lipstick. Now that I'm older it really is a challenge to find the right shade of color within the spectrum. I need to be incredibly careful when wearing reds. Oranges are just about forbidden. Pinks generally need …Read more

Dec/01/2015

In my never ending search for a cream blush, I was hitting rock bottom. I "lost" my Stila cream blush but due to the spending binge with Christmas, I just didn't want to spend the money. I'm a giver--and would rather spend the money purchasing gifts for those whom I love.
That being said, I honestly cannot wear powder blush in the winter. My *cough* "mature" …

Every now and then I like to take a break from clumpy, smeary mascara and play with false eyelashes. My favorites being Model 21 and Ardel. Both are inexpensive and good quality. I've had more good luck than bad luck with ELF cosmetics and brushes so when I saw these "natural" lashes, I figured for a buck, I would try them.
Besides, even though the lashes looked a bit more …
