Sunscreen - Unlisted Brand - MD Solar Sciences Mineral Tinted Creme SPF 30

I wanted to like this because of the all-mineral active ingredients and the tint worked on my NC-20-ish skintone. But this sunscreen just would not set -- even after hours. It felt very silicone-y -- like I had a greasy coating on my face and it rubbed off on everything that even slightly touched it -- fingers, clothes, etc.

Lips - Bobbi Brown - Extra Lip Tint (All Colors)

I like this as a moisturizing, very sheer wash of color and shine for days when I wear very little makeup and/or when my lips are feeling particularly dry. The Bare Melon provides a lovely sheer pinky-peach color, especially nice and brightening in the summer; it also seems to blur my lip lines and make my lips look plumper. All the other colors, though, don't even show up on my pigmented …Read more

This tinted all-mineral sunscreen applies smoothly, blends easily, and dries down quickly to a natural skin finish with a lightweight feel. The finish is lovely -- controls the slightly oily T-zone, while not being dry on my dryer cheek areas, and looks very natural on my late-40s face. It evens out my skintone, covering the redness of my mild rosacea just enough so that I can go without …Read more

My experience with the Skinceuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense is quite similar to LPomona's below. I'd been searching for a sunscreen that wouldn't irritate my late-40s, sensitive, mild rosacean, combo skin, and that I could wear on my eyelids and up to my eyes without stinging. This sunscreen does that. I do have to apply a light lotion (right now, that's Cetaphil …Read more

I bought the Mona lipstick and returned it. I loved the color - at first. When first applied, it's a gorgeous brick red. But then it turned progressively pinker on me. But what really turned me off was the formula. While it's very pigmented and goes on very creamy, it's also incredibly smeary -- more so than any other lipstick I've ever used. It transfers way too easily. And …Read more

Love this. I'm Asian with monolid hooded eyes, meaning I need a thick eyeliner line in order for it to show up at all. This brush has made all the difference in terms of how much easier it is to apply gel eyeliner.

I tried a bunch of eyeliner brushes before this, settling on a combination of Bobbi Brown's concealer brush (because I need to make a thicker line than most …

Soft, woody, incensy and irisy, with a touch of vanilla and a slight hint of vetiver. At once airy, dry and somewhat minimalist; yet also creamy, resinous and a little sweet. For me, it's a wonderful comfort scent - calming, soothing, centering. It wears close to the skin - quiet but long lasting; I catch beautiful wafts of it throughout the day.

A simple, warm, sunny, citrusy skin musk that just makes me happy. It’s like a dose of comforting sunshine and works to cheer me up even in winter. The musk is of the snowy, sparkling variety rather than animalic. I prefer the oil to the edp - but both have great lasting power.

Glorious. A gorgeous, light, subtle, refined, transparent apricot-tea scent, with some complexity and a soft, muted suede-like warmth. Works for me in spring, summer and early fall. It does take several sprays, though, to show up enough and to last.
