BB Cream - Urban Decay - Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Foundation

I'm fifty-five, and like a light foundation.

Skin: Combination, thank you HRT (really), with some fine lines and small spider veins I want to hide. I am one half Native American and the other is Swedish. In the summer I have darker skin, (that is neutral, neither very cool, nor warm), in the winter? I feel like my skin is so light, it's see-through. I have found the Medium …

Is it an inexpensive and not quite perfect dupe for Nars Orgasm Blush? Yep. It also does not have a ton of slip, but at 54, I don't need much blush, or I'd look like some sort of clown and I personally am afraid of clowns. I think this is absolutely gorgeous on me. There is some shimmer, not so great over 50, but it's not too much and it applies well, stays where I put it, that is …Read more

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser

I've been using this for a few years now as my skin moves from very oily, (54) with constant breakouts to more combination skin as I age. I love the smell, and no, I don't like fragrance normally, but it is washed off. My dermatologist recommended this for me and it's been a holy grail. I never, ever scrub with it. I use my fingers gently and move it around, following it with a …Read more

Moisturizers - Philosophy - Hope in a Jar - Original Formula (For All Skin Types)

Oct/16/2013

No hope for me. Nothing really works on all skin types, in my experience and this made me break out. I have fine lines, but I'm afraid it's going to have to be a, "laser." This was especially bad for acne in my T zone and right cheek. I tried it at different times of the month, on a box, with a fox, you get the idea. I personally, don't believe in purging. I've …Read more

Palettes - Urban Decay - Book of Shadows Vol. II [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/08/2010

This is, by far, the best palette I've ever purchased and despite my distaste for at least three, or four colors, keep buying them (I'm a makeup artist so I can justify the colors I don't like). I love every, single color in this palette. I can go from demure, to way out there and especially adore the bottom row of peacock colors. I am in full glory when I put these on my …Read more

I'm not a MAC superfan. I have some in my kit, but not tons and it's all Lipglosses, glases, sticks. I'm adding my first shadow this week. Back to the review. This stuff is so nice, I bought two each of the products, so that I would have it past the run.It is gorgeous against mu skin and peps my face up in a shophisticated way, without being too much. I can't wear a super …Read more

Eyeliner - Stila - Kajal Eye Liner in Onyx

5.0

Dec/24/2009

Okay, first and foremost my main complaint about pencil anything, is the horrible loss of product when you sharpen. This stuff is so expensive that I, really, go over my sharpener and my shavings (onto a clean paper towel) and put any leftovers in a clamshell container I bought from TBK Trading. At the end of one pencil I have enough for a couple more weeks with an angled eyeliner brush and …Read more

I love this color and the feel of it going on. It lasts and is very buildable. I was unsure at first because it almost looks almost orange in the container, but it is very natural looking on my fair skin (winter) and my reddish complexion in the summer, usually very tan (it just gets that way, no matter how much sunscreen I use). It's my, "go to," blush for almost every occaission …Read more

I was so excited to buy this. I really wanted it to work and some of the reviews were fantastic! Sadly, it stank like a skunk and clumped like wet clay on my lashes. I've had the tube for a week now and it's already starting to dry out. I live in Michigan, it's moist here. Almost English Weather, but colder. Nothing dries out.

I'm tossing it and giving up on …

Misc Beauty Tools - Tweezerman - No Slip Skincare Tool (Blackhead/Blemish Extractor)

I cannot live withtout this. I am serious. At 45 with wrinkles and acne, especially on my nose (gross), I was shocked what this dragged out. Its my HG for blackheads. I hate them and the satisfaction of the removal is mind blowing. I just am thrilled that the darn things are gone. Use an astringent after, or a masque and steaming your pores first is a must.
