OMG, I can't believe there is only one review for this! I LOVE this finishing powder, especially since they have changed the packaging to be more user friendly. It gives a beautiful , luminescent finish. No matter what I use under it, this goes over it. I cant see spending the big bucks to get what this delivers for $6.

I keep coming back to this and I wonder why I stray. I have it in Porcelain Ivory and it is a good match but I have also gone a shade darker. I think its interesting that so many of us "seasoned" gals here like it. It goes on great; you dont need much; and the coverage is..beautiful. I too have participated in the quest for the holy grail foundation, and while I have a few faves, I …Read more

I think I am going to stop buying foundation, hoping one will be better than this one. I come back to this one again and again. It does last, as it says it does; the 120 Ivory shade is just about perfect for me; and it creates a smooth finish. I have read the other reviews here for 56+ skin and agree with most of what is said. I do apply this foundation with a damp sponge, and it goes on well …Read more

Although I love the scent of roses, I have found that rose fragrances often disappoint. Not this one! It has a lovely bloom blends with patchouli and an hint of spice. I would wear this in any season and for any reason.

Since the review, I have found that this fragrance could be improved with more staying power. Even with the shower gel and lotion, it still does not last long …

Liquid - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17

First, let me say I did not want to buy this foundation. I wanted the L'oreal LUMI in the bottle;; but for whatever reason, l'Oreal does not make C2 in Lumi in a bottle. It is available in compact form, which is little foundation for a bigger price. Nonetheless, I have both. (I do wish l'Oreal would make Lumi in C2 in the bottle with a pump) . I found this foundation to be …Read more

I bought this too, but the $10. size because I did not want to drop more on a product about which I was uncertain. I have the Lolli tint, and truthfully, I love that color a tad more than Gogo tint, but with Lolli tint, I have to use a great deal for it to show up on my very fair skin..go figure. That said, Gogo does not disappoint, and I think it is a shade that most gals can wear. As the …Read more

Maybe if this is your first go round with a cream or gel blush, it is great. I have used gel blushes all my life and this is NOT the best. Years ago Clinique made wonderful gel blushes; they are long gone. I have gone back to using Pinch My Cheeks (raspberry) because unlike these, Pinch my Cheeks DOES stay on all day. I like the colors of Glossier (I have haze and puff - I have very fair …Read more

This is the first fragrance I have ever reviewed.
Before purchasing My Heroine, I went the the MAC counter twice - and sprayed in on twice. I had to "live" in the fragrance before I made up my mind. Then I went to ebay, and found some that was not full price - just in case in bombed on me. It did not.
This is a really unique fragrance for the gal who is tired of …

Concealers - Unlisted Brand - Wander Beauty Dualist Matte & Illuminating Concealer

Jun/27/2017

I disagree strongly with the other reviewers. And this is the first - and last time- I will allow myself to be snake charmed by smooth talking, expert makeup artists, on QVC or elsewhere. I see nothing spectacular about this dual function concealer. It covers well, ok - but not any better than my inexpensive NYX HD concealer. I like the stick part better than the liquid, but not thirty …Read more

Fragrances - Ava Luxe - Bohemian Rose

OMG, I LOVE Bohemian Rose! I think that it is not a valid criticism to say "It does not live up to its name". Many fragrances have odd names - and we dont expect them to reflect the name in any way. To me, Bohemian Rose smells like a stick of rose incense, and it blooms lovely on my skin. I think its an intoxicating fragrance. I have ordered from BPAL and from Possets, and so far …Read more
