This is a fantastic product...the best primer out there, by a country mile! That being said, when I purchased it , I thought it was a BB cream and was bitterly disappointed with the performance and the cost. So I went onto MUA to see what others said, and that was the key to success. Even though this is stocked with the BB creams, it has zero coverage. Zero! Even the tinted shades cover …Read more

Highlighters - MILANI - Illuminating Face Powder

Oct/15/2012

This is a really great product, and I'm one to avoid facial highlighters since I'm 54 and don't want to draw any more attention to my wrinkles than they already command on their own. For that reason, I've never indulged in the Guerlain Meteorites or similiar products. I purchased this on a whim in Hermosa Rose and after 3 months of use, it has become almost an HG. I have a …Read more

I'm amazed by the lack of love for this product! I rarely write reviews, but the Bite Beauty Lip Shine in Sante (neutral pink) is the bomb and has become my first real Holy Grail product. While the color is pretty muted, it plays well with a huge variety of lipstick colors; it complements all tones of nudes, peaches and pinks across the board. The best thing about it is the texture and …Read more

So I decided to try this product based on the good reviews here and I'm glad I did. I have been a happy user of both Missha Perfect Cover and Cho Bo Yang BB creams for about a year, enjoying the fuller coverage, sunscreen and skin benefits. Lately, I've been gettiing a few breakouts and also felt that in the extreme heat of a Texas summer, the Missha was a little too greasy and might …Read more

Awesome product!! I've been dying to try these but I live in Dallas where there are no Rite Aids & Walgreens doesn't have them in stock. I did find a big display of them at Bed, Bath & Beyond this AM (the store near Northpark) and grabbed three. Sadly, Pink Truffle was sold out, but all the colors are really nice.

BB Cream - MISSHA - M Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF 42 PA+++

Aug/01/2011

I think this stuff is the bomb! I'm 53 with pretty good skin and the Perfect Cover BB is exactly what I need; good coverage, moisturizing and a high SPF. I've been using this for about 4 weeks now and haven't experienced any breakouts (although my skin is pretty dry, other than a shiny nose at day's end). I chose this brand as my 1st BB because it's one of the only …Read more

Crème - COVERGIRL - + Olay Simply Ageless 3-In-1 Liquid Foundation

OK, I am shocked at how great this stuff is! I am a total high-end foundation buyer (Chanel, Guerlain) and out of curiousity (and a coupon, lol), I decided to check it out. I'm sort of surprised by all the comments that it runs so light; I'm an NW20 and got it in Natural Ivory, which was a perfect match. The packaging totally sucks; I actually had to Google how to open the compact …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Clarisonic - Opal

Oct/05/2010

I pulled the trigger & bought the Opal with some misgivings, based on the mixed reviews here. I'm 52, with pretty good skin, average crows-feet and the usual under-eye bags (exacerbated by seasonal allergies). I've used the Opal for 14 days now (2 x daily) and am pleased to give it a solid B+. However, I would caution others that it is not a miracle worker; your crows-feet will …Read more

Great product! I was lucky enough to get this dirt cheap with the recent "O Magazine" promotion and I'm so glad I did. I'm 52 with combination skin; I use this at night and my skin still feels moist when I wake up. I've had no breakouts and a little of the cream is all you need to do your whole face...honestly, I'll be using this for months. Really good quality …Read more

Highlighters - MAC Cosmetics - by candlelight

Created with Sketch.

Jul/16/2010

This was my first venture into MAC MSFs and I think "By Candlelight" both beautiful and unusual. I'm NW25 (warm-toned) and the pigmentation on this is just about perfect for my slightly tan summer complexion: pale, peachy, golden. This MSF did not add any real color to my skin, but more of a "lit from within" kind of glow; the name really describes the effect. I am 52 …Read more
