So disappointed in this. I am 50 years old, I take great care of my skin, and it's in good shape. I was hoping this would be a nice addition to my skin care routine. I wasted my money.
I am NOT especially prone to acne, but every single time I have attempted to use this my skin breaks out within a day of applying it. It is also way overpriced.

Tinted Moisturizer - Pixi - H2O Skin Tint

HG foundation. Ever since Clinique Almost Makeup was discontinued years ago, I've searched for a light foundation/tinted moisturizer to replace it. I've tried many and have been happy enough with a couple, but THIS is my dream foundation! Smooth, gel-like application. Easy to blend, and the finish is gorgeous - not too matte, not too dewy.
Although I'm almost 50, my skin tends …

Concealers - Avon - True Color Flawless Creme Concealer

This is a gem of a product! It is easily the best concealer I've ever used. It comes in a pan rather than a wand or stick. I apply it with a concealer brush. It has a creamy consistency and it does not feel greasy to me. Only a tiny amount is needed. You must use a very light hand to avoid caking it on. It blends in beautifully and actually does it's job by flawlessly concealing any …Read more

Eye Primer - Avon - True Color Eyeshadow Primer

I agree with the previous reviewer that this primer makes it look like the skin on the eyelids is peeling and flaking. I've given it several tries using different shadows on top and no matter what I do/use it looks terrible.
I would not recommend this to anyone.

BB Cream - Lumene - Time Freeze Anti-Age Color Correcting CC Cream [DISCONTINUED]

This was a disappointment. I have combination skin, leaning towards oiliness. When I first applied this CC cream I thought it was okay - not wonderful, but okay. However, it did not wear well throughout the day. Rather than sort of melding with my skin, it just sat on top and looked a bit cakey and pasty.
It's not the worst product I've ever used, but I can't rate it 3 …

Polishes - Avon - Nailwear Luxe Lavender

Oct/13/2015

Avon NailWear Pro polishes have become a favorite of mine over the last few years. I adore many of the colors. They apply easily and are long wearing. This particular shade is so pretty - soft lavender with a creme finish. It's opaque in only one coat! I hope they don't discontinue this shade (as well as a few others).

Beautiful frosty, icy, baby blue polish. I usually prefer creme polishes, but the pearlescent finish is perfect for this one. It applies smoothly, self-leveling nicely. It's opaque in two coats and it dries quickly.

This is a very pretty creme polish. It is a unique cornflower/periwinkle shade. It can look more blue or purple depending on the lighting. I posted two photos illustrating this effect. It's pretty in all lighting IMO.
This polish looks great on fingers or toes.
It's perfect in two coats, but you could probably get away with one - it's very opaque. The formula seems a …

Polishes - Avon - Sea Breeze

This is one of my favorite polishes. It is a gorgeous shade - a cross between sea green and turquoise. Great on fingers or toes. Not only is the color fabulous, the formula is excellent. It is opaque in two coats and it self-levels perfectly. This is a better polish than much more expensive brands. I love it!

Sunscreen - Paula's Choice - RESIST Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 - Normal/Oily/Combination Skin

Aug/16/2015

This is easily the most cosmetically elegant sunscreen I've ever used, and I've used sooo many sunscreens over the years. It truly leaves a matte finish and it serves nicely as a makeup primer. I like the tint and love that there is no white cast to the skin after applying. I've experienced no irritation or breakouts.
My only gripe is the price. It's expensive for the …
