Neck/Decollete Cream - Neocutis - Microfirm Neck & Decollete

Pretty pricey cream, $135 for a 1.7 oz tub. It comes in a pump tub; you press the top and a measured amount comes out, a bit more than I need. So I try to depress it a bit less. The cream is thick and white. No scent. It does seem to tighten me up a bit and remove some of the rough texture (I'm pushing 70 but not very wrinkled) and I have that sagging neck what can you do? I think it …Read more

Foundations - Fenty Beauty by Rihanna - Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation

3.0

Update 2.0: Well, seems I'm getting an allergic reaction or sensitivity to this foundation (and primer.) Could be the primer: I don't do well with dimethicone. I got small red bumps mostly on my nose and my nose even looked swollen. As the primer seems to be necessary to get a good smooth matte finish, I'm thinking I'm not a good candidate for this foundation-primer duo but …Read more

A good light orangey red listed as "copper" but can go on as red if you have pigmented lips. It ranges from light dull orange on some to brick red (on me.) Flattering even if you have neutral or cool tone skin. I don't look good in blue reds. I can wear brown reds like Viva Glam 1 and this looks great on me too. It will make your teeth look more yellow (hence one lippy off) but if …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - Human+Kind Body Souffle

I got this tube as part of FitFabFun Fall 2019. At first I was displeased; the scent seemed too strong and I don't like scent, especially fruity ones and this has a pear-citrus fragrance. The texture is light and creamy and it goes on easily and absorbs fairly quickly. The ingredients include apricot kernel oil and shea butter. It's in a water suspension so it's very light compared …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Paint Pot - Painterly

This color is a cool pinkish beige, for those whom Soft Ochre seems too yellow. It's a base color or a primer; works with Grounded (soft brown) as a full eye or as an eye primer, which is how I use it.

One swipe of the finger tip and I have a base for eye shadow. It does work well as a primer but I don't have oily lids. Nor does it crease.

They seem to have improved …

Eye Shadow - trèStiQue - Mini Shadow Crayon - Morimoto Pearl

3.0
Created with Sketch.

14 days ago

These are expensive little crayons that pack easily and do a complete eye with three or four small pencils. Morimoto Pearl is billed as a pinkish pearl in the crayon but on me goes on rather white and a bit chunky. At the end of the day it's still there but it's not smooth and satiny, there are kind of glittery chunks I don't like on my older lids.

The "gimmick" …

Concealers - Tarte Cosmetics - Shape Tape Contour Concealer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

14 days ago

Hyped up, worth it? Yes. First, there is a wide color range. I have seen "dark" concealers for years that would never work on a deep complexion and though I'm fair, I feel that's so mean to so many women who have deep coloration and want to conceal dark circles or spots.

The doe foot is pretty standard. The consistency is thicker than many concealers. You do not need …

Update: bought a second bottle in a darker color (fair neutral) which seems to blend in perfectly. Man, I love this foundation. It feels great on the skin and looks so fresh. It is NOT full coverage; I'd say medium at best but of the ones I've used lately, including my old standard EL Double Wear and MAC Face & Body, this is totally my favorite.

I received this foundation …

Brows - trèStiQue - Mini Brow Pencil - Americano

19 days ago

Americano is a medium-brown shade for you gorgeous blondes and brunettes. So they say. It's a taupe and the pencil is SO DRY stroking it on the back of the hand takes a lot of pressure. It doesn't show up in my brows at all. Crap is what I say. It's part of their Mini Eye Essentials Kit which is $48 and so not worth it. Comes with pink pearl (like Mally's Evercolor Stick in …Read more
