First bought this mascara at the Air Force Exchange when my usual CG Professional Remarkable was unavailable. I especially liked the bristle brush on that mascara and was leery about trying a wand with plastic bristles. I found that the plastic brush did a really good job of evenly coating the product. It is true with use, it thickens up abit, but that actually is an advantage until that …Read more

After I got lasik surgery I was mortified to find I had dark circles and wrinkles under my eyes. I guess my glasses hid them from me all those years. lol! So I began an on-line quest of finding the perfect cheap alternative to plastic surgery, botox and fillers and my search led me to this product. My first disclaimer is that I realize a cream in a tube is not going to come close to more …Read more

Bought this at RiteAide for $7.19 at 40% off plus $1.00 coupon, so it was a bargain at $3.99. There is a great color selection divided into different color palettes. I chose 260 Heavenly Paradisiaque (how do you pronounce that?) from the neutral palette. This color is pinkish, shiny with no frost. I found the color of the actual lipstick to be very close to the color on the bottom of the …Read more

Eye Shadow - COVERGIRL - Eye Enhancers Eye Shadow - Brown Smolder

I actually don't use this product as an eye shadow. Even though it is a nice neutral brown color its still too dark for my age, but it makes a great eyeliner. I always used cake eyeliner because pencils just seemed to slide off my greasy eyes. But it is hard to find cake eyeliner anymore and so I am always on a quest to find suitable brown shadows instead. This cheap Cover Girl color …Read more

Okay here's the deal, love this moisturizer, hate the smell and as I have read, I am not alone. What's up with the smell Olay? Even so, I'm giving it 5 lippies because it's a great product, although I think if you have really dry skin this might not be for you, it doesn't add gobs of moisture but its great for aging combo skin. I had been using Avon Solutions Ageless …Read more

Polishes - REVLON - Nail Enamel

Mar/02/2011

I have been using Revlon nail polish for years and years. I just don't think you can beat the product for the price. This polish is easy to apply, It goes on very smoothly, and dries fairly fast. Depending on the color, it lasts for several days. A bottle lasts a long time and the quality of the polish stays intact. I've had polishes well over a couple years and they still …Read more

Mar/02/2011

I have been using Moondrops lipstick for years in Goldmist Bronze, which is actually a rosy color with slight shimmer to it, not too matte, not too frosty. Paula Begoun the Cosmetics Cop doesn't give it a good rating because of the smell. Well, I had actually never noticed the smell; it doesn't bother me at all. What I love is the way it goes on smoothly, its creamy without being …Read more

Mar/01/2011

I wish I had read Paula Begoun's review on this concealer before I bought it, she gives it an average rating because it tends to cake into the lines of us older gals and alas, on this I must agree with her. I actually find it a little dry considering it has an Olay moisturizer in it. I might try mixing it with a little moisturizer. On the plus side it does brighten the eye area,although …Read more

Blush - COVERGIRL - Cheekers Blush - Pretty Peach

Created with Sketch.

Mar/01/2011

Have used Cheekers for years and started using this particular shade when it was recommended in some beauty magazine to use a peach shade in blush. I had always used a browned rose or brick color before but I was finding as I aged I needed to lighten up my mu. This peach is not orangy like some peaches, I can't do orange, it is more in the pinky peach range. It is a nice matte color and …Read more

Paula Begoun gives this blush a bad review saying its dry and goes on streaky, well I must disagree. I have been using this blush for several years. Its super cheap and I always use a $1 coupon, so it costs around $3. It goes on smoothly and has a nice sheen without being sparkly. I throw away the brush that comes with it when I first open the package and use my big Estee Lauder blush brush …Read more
