I just tried this makeup today. I did not think I would like it as well as the L'oreal Lumi - but I do! It is so creamy and goes on smooth. It just takes a bit, so think I will use less next time. I got the classic Ivory and it matches pretty well.
I also set this with a bit of pressed powder. Texture looks great on:)

Here I am with my foundations again! This is wonderful for mature skin which is also dry - and a few wrinkles, too. The soft ivory/classic ivory was perfect for me.
I have a little method here that may save some of you that thinks this foundation is "too wet." I put this foundation over my Daywear Plus foundation. Now, here's the trick: I blot the foundation with a …

Liquid - COVERGIRL - Advanced Radiance Age-Defying Liquid Makeup

Apr/28/2013

This foundation really reminds so much of the fragrance free foundation CG discontinued in the Clean makeup line. Frankly, I'm not sure I can find any difference. I am using the same Natural Ivory shade, and I compared it with the discontinued Clean makeup; the shades were exactly the same, as well as the texture.
This makeup moisturizes well, and the coverage is medium. The …

Liquid - COVERGIRL - Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-In-1 Foundation

Apr/25/2013

I love this!! This makeup covers like a concealer, but looks so wonderful - like you may not have makeup on (wink). I have small brown discolorations on my cheeks near my nose, and this covered so well that I could not tell exactly where they were. Of course, I used a moisturizer under this, in this case Avon Damatic Firming Cream.
I love the pump, too. Try this and see. It just …

I am older and this powder does not work for me. I find the coverage very heavy. I also had trouble finding the shade I wanted. I have no. 2 and 3 shades, both seem pink. I have fair skin and use either the pink or yellow tones as I am so very neutral.
I can see why younger people would like this
foundation because I do believe it lasts well on the skin and in the summer …

Masks - Mary Kay - Moisture Rich Mask Formula 1

Created with Sketch.

Apr/15/2013

I love, love this mask. I have sensitive, dry and mature skin. I used to sell Mary Kay products in the 90's and used this mask then. Well, I promptly forgot about it and went on with my life. About a month ago, my skin needed something so badly to refresh it. Everything burns my skin now that I am older and especially a scrub! I had ordered previously a basic skin care set from Mary …Read more

Crème - REVLON - PhotoReady Compact Makeup

Apr/12/2013

I love the Photoready Compact by Revlon. However, it makes so much difference in the way I use this makeup. Let me say first that I have dry, mature skin. My coloring is fair. This is why I like it:
First of all, though I have dry skin, I must use a good moisturizer. l have used Estee Lauder Daywear Plus for many years. I use two shades of the makeup - a light layer of Vanilla, and …

Mar/13/2013

I picked this E.L.F. cover stick up at the grocery store the other day. It was only one dollar! Did I expect it to work - not really. When I got home, I tried it on my skin and the match was pretty good. The color is apricot beige. Later, as I was doing my makeup, I put a bit of this on my finger and softly smudged it under my eyes. The effect was marvelous and I am not joking! It was the …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Equate - Dry Skin Cream (in jar)

Feb/19/2013

I have found it - I have found it. Something for my very dry skin is here. I have said in many of my reviews how my changing skin is surely changing, and it has not stopped yet!
This very inexpensive cream in a great big jar is marvelous! It is called "Equate Dry Skin Creme" - it is the dupe of Eucerin cream. I have very dry cheeks under my cheekbones and on the inner side of …

Skincare - Face - Avon - Dramatic Firming Cream

Feb/09/2013

I just received this cream today, and I must say that it is unusual. It does firm! Probably so much that I cannot use it all over my face. I found that just under the eyes really helped lines - kind of like weird! I hesitate recommending using any cream off-label for the eyes, but I have very sensitive eyes, and this cream did not bother them. You might want to try it! It is not expensive …Read more
