Beautiful color. It's a nude/mauve color that's not too dark or too light - the perfect neutral shade.
The brush could be wider, but it wasn't much of a bother.
I found that it's opaque in two thin coats. There was slight balding when I held my nails up to the light, but it wasn't noticeable otherwise. I kept looking at my hands because the color was just so …

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - RESIST C15 Super Booster

I don’t have particularly sensitive skin (I use AHA and Rx retin-a micro), but this serum burned my face, especially around the eyes. Painful, itchy, blotchy red rash.
I’ve used other vitamin C serums without issue so it’s something in this particular product.

I have fine textured hair, but it’s not thin. Even though I get highlights regularly my hair leans toward oily. I have to wash daily or it looks greasy.
Moisturizing shampoos tend to make it look too limp.
I didn’t have high hopes when I tried this out, but I was pleasantly surprised. It doesn’t dry me out. It leaves my hair soft and shiny but not weighed down.
This isn’t the only …

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.

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.
