I second this shampoo for dry, thick, frizzy, color-treated hair. After my stylist mentioned that my hair had turned dry and damaged, I stopped using the spendy Living Proof PhD line and switched to this shampoo and the matching conditioner on a whim. So glad I did! Perfect amount of moisture for my hair and I can still go 2-3 days between shampoos.

Unfortunately, this color just didn't work for me, which is why I didn't want to give it too low of a rating. The formula is really nice and creamy. I have pigmented lips and warm undertones. This was way too light and cool; it looked almost gray on my lips. This will probably work great for someone with fair/light cool skin and lips that aren't very pigmented. For reference …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Paula's Choice - RESIST Retinol Skin-Smoothing Body Treatment

Love this stuff -- I use it daily on my shoulders and back (where it prevents break outs) and on my chest, and it lasts for several months.

A lot of reviewers have complained that this product is expensive, and I agree that I wouldn't use this as an all-over body moisturizer. But it actually saves me money because I'm not using my more expensive face products on my chest …

Concealers - Bobbi Brown - Corrector

Edit: Changed my review from a 4 to a 5 after starting to use a micro mini beautyblender to apply and setting it with Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder. Perfection.
=============
I spent a couple of months obsessing about finding a concealer/corrector to cover veins and help hide the bags under my eyes--yet not settle into my lines, which are getting more noticeable in my 40s. I …

I switched to this serum a couple of months ago, after using the Resist Retinol serum for a couple of years and feeling like I needed to step it up. I definitely see a difference in my skin! I followed the instructions and used this every other night for a few weeks; I can now use this every night without irritation. I use it along with the oil booster (but no other moisturizer) and wake up with …Read more

I've been using this for years -- best lip balm I've ever used. Keeps my lips from getting dry in the winter, works great under lipstick and it's priced right. I always have 3: one at home, one at work, one in my purse.

Pressed Powders - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Sculpt Defining Powder

Jan/19/2015

I bought this as a touch-up compact to carry in my purse; it was recommended to me by the MAC SA. I'm in my 40s, with medium-toned skin that requires a touch-up or two throughout the day on my nose and forehead. I didn't want anything too drying because my skin is getting drier with age and makeup is starting to settle into my lines. I was previously using Bare Minerals READY Touch-up …Read more

This is a great scrub. I use about 2-3 times a week and can usually tell when my 40+ skin needs it again because I get that layer of dullness/shiny-ness and my skincare products don't absorb as well.

I bought this to replace the Philosophy Microdelivery Peel 2-piece kit that I was using for years, and loved. Is it just me or are Philosophy products getting more and more expensive? …

Bronzers - NARS Cosmetics - Orgasm-Laguna Blush-Bronzer Duo

Jan/08/2015

While I did think this duo was very pretty (I have medium skin with yellow undertones) the glitter in the blush was a bit too much for me, and worst of all, I had an allergic reaction. I wore this for two days in a row. On the first day, a red hive-like bump appeared on my right cheek. The next day, the same thing happened on the left cheek and both cheeks were inflamed. I'm pretty sure it …Read more

Dry Shampoo - Blow Pro - Faux Dry Dry Shampoo

This is the only thing that works for my long, thick dirty blonde hair. With other dry shampoos I used to get maybe one more day out of my style -- I can use this 3 days in a row and my hair looks great. I also love that there is no scent because the scents are usually overpowering. I just mist perfume in my brush before brushing my hair.
