Polishes - Maybelline New York - Color Show THE NUDES Nail Polish - Warm me up (Limited Edition)

I’m 49 and love a good MLBB shade, and if I could have the money back for all the times I’ve bought what I hoped would be a perfect color, I’d be rich! But finally...this is it. I’m NC20-25, brunette (with salt and pepper grey) and fairly pigmented lips. This is literally my lips but better. It looks like my lips but just evened out, creamier, and refined. It has a hint more brown than my …Read more

Foundations - wet n wild - Mega Cushion Foundation SPF15

I adore this foundation and think it’s really under-rated just because it’s Wet-and-Wild. I am 49 with combo, acne prone skin. This foundation is absolutely beautiful! Finding a color match might be hard because there aren’t many colors and looking online for swatches, you won’t find many. I am NC20-25 and Nude Beige is really good for me. I actually use the little sponge it comes with to …Read more

So disappointed in this. On so many google images it’s a beautiful nude. On me however, brunette NC25 ish, it goes full-blown orange! It’s actually shocking how different it looks on my lips compared to in the tube and on seemingly everyone else. It looks totally apricot/orange and makes my teeth look yellow. So glad it was cheap!

Styling Products - Garnier - Sleek and Shine Anti-Humidity Styling Cream

5.0

May/02/2017

I'm reviewing this because it's something I repurchase over and over without thinking about it, because it's a really good, if somewhat boring, workhorse for me. I have fine, slightly way and frizzy (mostly from greys) shoulder length hair. This is really lightweight and works well either throughout my hair before blow-drying as a general all-purpose "styling product" …Read more

Mascara - Jordana Cosmetics - Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/11/2016

I've purchased this 3 separate times, feeling compelled to "give it another chance" because it gets so much love I kept feeling like I must be missing something. Pluses: nice brush, not huge like many are now. Doesn't smudge or flake, does a decently nice job doing what I want mascara to do but I have to really work at it because of the minus: it's SO WET. If you love …Read more

Oct/02/2014

I am adding my review just because I actually can't believe how much I love this foundation. For me, it really is as good as the reviews led me to hope...it is the best foundation I've used in many many years. I am 44 with combo, acne and clog-prone skin with some melasma. I have been absolutely faithful to just a couple of foundations up until now; Illuminare liquid mineral in the …Read more

Hair Color - John Frieda - Colour Refreshing Gloss

Aug/22/2014

I wanted to add a review because this did *exactly* what I wanted it to. I used it with realistic expectations. It's not "hair color"...it really is just a color refreshing gloss. I can actually say this is the product I have imagined in my mind that I would love to find but never had, the closest I got was Jazzing color, which I would sometimes mix into conditioner and just …Read more

Sep/09/2013

I have used this on and off for many years and just sort of re-discovered it yet again. I only have 3 foundations that I trust enough to keep in rotation that I know won't clog me or worsen my acne; Clinique Almost Powder foundation, Illuminare Extra Coverage mineral cream foundation, and this. I am NC20-25, and Buff Beige is a lovely match. Lately, I've applied it differently and …Read more

Toners - Reviva Labs - Glycolic Acid Toner

5.0

Jan/06/2013

I LOVE this. I use it as a light hydrator. its inexpensive, easy to find at Ulta, fragrance-free, colorant free, and just wonderful. the glycolic is super low so it just acts to moisturize for me. I pat it on with my fingers after I wash am and pm, and I find that it is often all the moisture I need. for reference I am 43 with combo skin, hormonal acne and very clog prone.

Eye Shadow - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Cream Shadow in Dawn

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/31/2011

Very nice. And only $3! This color (Dawn) is what I had wanted MAC's PP in Bare Study to be. I wanted a shimmery champagne that would give a pretty, sort of glazed look to my lids, and that can be easily worn alone, or under other shadows. Bare Study just looks like white on my lids-ugh! The elf Dawn looks like I described above. I'd call it a champagney-taupe. It's light on …Read more
