Best makeup I’ve ever used. Extra rich for dry skin, medium to full coverage, doesn’t settle in lines or accentuate texture, and evens skin tone like nobody’s business! The best way I’ve found to apply it is by inserting a stainless cosmetic spatula into bottle, gently stirring the oil and pigment, using the spatula to scoop a small amount of pigment from bottom, and placing the pigment on my …Read more

Lip Gloss - CHANEL - Rouge Double Intensité Ultra Wear Lip Colour (All Shades)

If longwear liquid lipsticks are too drying or too matte, you may like this. It’s packaged where one end is the pigment (with a doe foot sponge applicator) and the other end is a clear gloss (with a lip brush applicator). The color is very pigmented and has a velvety matte finish. Before I apply the color, I wipe a bit off the sponge applicator and then use a light hand. It’s very easy to build …Read more

I’ve never owned a cushion foundation before, but this is a sheer/light foundation that can be built up to medium coverage. I have dry skin, so I love how hydrating it is. The finish is beautiful. It’s glowy, hydrating, evens my skin tone (melasma), and doesn’t settle in or accentuate my fine lines and wrinkles. I use a damp BeautyBlender to apply. If I don’t, the coverage is a bit heavier than …Read more

Foundations - Giorgio Armani - Crema Nuda

I have fair skin that is mature and on the dry side. This is like a soft light bulb for the skin. It’s more moisturizing than a tinted moisturizer and has light coverage like a CC cream. Although the coverage is light, the glowiness imparted onto the skin is unsurpassed. It melds to the skin so where application starts and ends is imperceptible to my eye. Worth the money if you have dry skin that …Read more

Lipstick - Merle Norman - Creamy Lipcolor

This lipstick feels like a glossy, but pigmented, balm on my lips. It's very hydrating and doesn't feel heavy/goopy. Because of its light weight, you can expect color, but not complete opaqueness. The black tube packaging feels heavier and more substantial than say Bobbi Brown, LM, and Chanel. I have this in the shade Blackberry, which looks like a berry rose on my lips …Read more

I have short, thin lashes. This mascara thickened and lengthened my lashes with one coat. I do go over my lashes with the wand a few times to get better separation. I was a devotee to Chanel Inimitable Intense, but Fat Lash Is better for thickening, and lengthening my lashes. It's also cheaper than Chanel. Chanel is easier to remove with an oil cleanser than MN.

Update: This …

This mascara provides no volume or length to my lashes. It has a very wet texture and transfers quiet easily until it dries (which takes over a minute). i expected more dramatic results from a "volume" mascara.

I'm terrible at describing fragrance. This smells like apricots and very soft tuberose with the quietest whisper of cedar. I adore it. It's not a sharp floral nor a tart fruit smell because the light touch of cedar takes the edge off and turns into a soft, comfortable,and feminine fragrance. I'm a devotee of YSL Premieres Roses. I will now have two signature scents on my vanity.

Sep/24/2016

I have sensitive, dry, acne-prone skin and do a double cleanse at night. I needed a cleanser that effectively removed any residue and makeup left behind by my favorite cleansing oil. This cleanser fits the bill. It has a texture like lotion, but isn't sudsy or drying. In fact, it seems to add moisture to my skin. Plus, this cleanser smells pleasant--light, clean floral. I didn't give …Read more

Apr/10/2016

I have older, dry skin, and cream foundations accentuate my pores and wrinkles. This foundation applies smoothly (with Beauty Blender sponge), does not accentuate wrinkles or pores, and provides great coverage. It feels a bit tacky when applied to the skin, but it goes away with a light dusting of By Terry hyaluronic powder. In the winter, I don't apply powder over the foundation because I …Read more
