I love this foundation! I have mature skin and I get so excited when I find a perfect colour match for my ddd skin. This foundation lasts all day on me and I make sure to prime first with either Too Faced Hangover or Nivea’s primer in the jar. I alternate this with my other favourite: Lancôme Teint Idole. For reference in Sephora’s colour IQ system, I am 1Y12 and wear Chai.

This is amazing! I also bought the new Maybelline lash primer and I prefer this one. It is really worth the extra step. I have long lashes to begin with, but adding this before any of my fav mascaras, make my lashes full and lush. Highly recommend!

I love this lip primer! I use it before any lipstick, gloss or stain and it moisturizes perfectly and appears to smooth out the lines on my lips. I have tried other brands but always come back to Mac's. It is pricy, but works better than Fresh or Bite Beauty lip primers and their's is even more expensive.

Perfect pinky/brown nude for my skin tone. I love the formula of this lipstick: moisturizing, creamy and fairly long lasting. It has replaced my Mac Creme in Your Coffee because I love the texture of these lipsticks WAY better than Mac's!

Lips - Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain--#16 Pourpre Preview

I love everything about this glossy stain. It is a nice lilac purple for my brown skin. I do have to work it a bit with my finger once applied but that has to do with my wrinkly lips and not the product. It lasts about 2-3 hours and doesn't dry out my lips. This was my first venture into higher end lip products and I am HOOKED! As I am older, I really do prefer higher end lip sticks …Read more

Sunscreen - EltaMD - UV Daily Facial Broad Spectrum SPF 40

This is my HG SS! I use the tinted version and it blends perfectly into my brown skin leaving no white cast. I initially used the Clear, but my estetician suggested I try the tinted Daily and I love it. It works beautifully under makeup and over my serums. My only complaint is that I never know how much I have left so I always have to have an extra one on hand. I highly recommend!

I love everything that this mascara does for my lashes, EXCEPT that it smudges underneath my eyes by the end of the day and I don't even wear mascara on my bottom lashes! It makes my lashes look long, thick, fluttery without any clumps. I have never had a mascara do this before, unfortunately, I have also never had a mascara smudge so badly either:(. I have a small sample size tube and …Read more

HG everyday ss. I use this and the Daily Tinted. It works well under my makeup and over my serums. I have replaced the Olay Sensitive 15 and 30 ss with this Elta MD one. I also think they are reasonably priced. I can only find them at the derm's office or online specialty stores. Highly recommend!

I love this SS for the warmer months when I know I am going to be outdoors for a very long period of time. It works well as a primer under my makeup and doesn't leave my face too ashy. If I use this too many days in a row, it does tend to dry out my skin, but I have learned from that mistake and alternate with the Clear and the Daily. Highly recommend Elta Md sunscreens.

I love this shadow stick and highly recommend. I have it in the shade Badgal Bronze and it is so easy to use for an everyday eye look. It doesn't crease and lasts all day even though I don't prime my eyelids before. I find I am reaching for this shadow stick more often than my Laura Mercier Cavier stick and you definitely cannot beat the price!
