Dec/25/2017

I bought this at my sister’s recommendation. I had been alternately using Giorgio Armani maestro and Mac cream foundation. I am 65 and I feel like at this stage of my life, less is more. I use confidence in a compact with the brush; it goes on slightly moist and feels cool and comforting. I don’t need much and the compact has lasted a long time. It’s not cheap, but I still feel like it’s a …Read more

Years ago a friend came back from a trip to Europe and had bought this fragrance, I tried and hated it. About 2 years ago, I tried it at Nordstrom and loved it! It smelled like citrus and pepper....and not too heavy. Very interesting and comfortable and familiar. I think my body chemistry had changed and my response to this fragrance was COMPLETELY different. It has become my HG fragrance …Read more

This product was very nostalgic to me - this and the Miracol mask. When I was a teenager in the 60's I was fascinated with Merle Norman. At that time I could only afford Woolworth cosmetics and was always on the hunt for acne products or "medicated" makeups. My skin was crazy oily with breakouts in the T zone. I lived in suburban Chicago with high humidity and no A/C in our …Read more

I had absolutely no plans to buy this foundation at the Cosbar in Santa Fe - I was perfectly happy with the cream stick foundation I had been using. I had been reading about it, so I decided to see how it felt. OMG! It felt like silk. My sister and I each bought a bottle of #3. We tend to go light, reason: we never see anyone whose foundation is too light, but we often see women whose …Read more

I bought this shade while looking for an Essie Shade at a Beauty Supply Store. I was told I would have better luck finding Essie at Target (true), but while there some beautiful iridescent polishes caught my eye. I was unfamiliar with the China Glaze brand, but I thought I would take a chance. There were some beautiful shades on display, but I finally decided on "Rare and Radiant". …Read more

As the other reviewers have indicated, "Watermelon Rind" is a misnomer for this shade, however I knew what it looked like when I bought it. I put it on in a hurry yesterday and applied two coats. It looks great today despite having worked in the garden. I wear my nails very short, so that means my nails are not subject to stress and bending. They look like beautiful aquamarine …Read more

OMG.....I bought this the other day at Walmart on impulse for 4.48 with low expectations.....it so reminds me of my Dior favorite, Mystic Jade at such a lower price. All four shadows are lustrous and go on BEAUTIFULLY. I always use an eyebase by Clinique because my lids are oily. I am going back to Walmart to buy 1 or 2 for my sister, and some more for me to add to my stash, in case they …Read more

The lightest ivory shade works best for me. I am a middle-aged natural redhead with green eyes. A little goes a long way and blends easily. It gives great coverage without looking heavy. I always use moisturizer before applying foundation anyway; this one is more matte than others I have used, so a moisturizer is definitely needed. My skin looks so good, I find myself stealing peeks in the …Read more

I bought this eyeshadow palette because I read that Sharon Stone was using it upon the recommendation of a makeup artist. I ordered it over the internet from a Chinese website, so I saved 10 bucks + taxes, and got free S&H...so not so bad. The packaging is beautiful and has a great mirror. The shades were a little scarey, until I tried them. They go on great, mix beautifully. They are …Read more

I didn't want to like this foundation.....I really didn't. I have invested heavily in what amounts to a 20 year supply of a cream foundation, out of fear that the brand will be discontinued. Have been hearing all the buzz about mineral foundations, but I don't like infomercials and I don't like being forced to buy more than one product to make something work. Well, the …Read more
