Eyeliner - Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil - Stash

Nov/12/2014

I treat myself to something expensive about 2 x a year. This time I bought "Stash". Oh my, this eye pencil is the most amazing shade of green. Yes, it's terribly overpriced, but I bought it on sale. The color is beautiful and it has staying power too. Due to my age, I can no longer wear shimmer eyeshadows, but I'll add a little shimmer/shine with an eyeliner. This is the …Read more

BB Cream - Lumene - Time Freeze Anti-Age Color Correcting CC Cream [DISCONTINUED]

I've never used a BB or CC product, and I didn't know what to expect. After seeing the prices in the drugstore and online at Sephora, I decided to see what I could find on ebay. In my opinion, this is nothing more than a tinted moisturizer and I wasn't expecting anything more or less.

I ordered "light", and paid less than half. Light is a great color match …

Brows - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Brow Duality Matte Camille/Sand Shimmer

Jun/06/2014

This is my first Anastasia of Beverly Hills purchase ~ I think all of the products are terribly overpriced. This is a duo pencil highlighter with Matte Camille and Sand Shimmer. The names of the products are truly the exact color of their names.

Matte Camille is creamy and glides on easily. I use the NYX Eye Primer Brush to evenly distribute the product. This is my go-to …

Brows - NYX Professional Makeup - Push-Up Bra for Eyebrow

Oh, how I love this little duo...

Eyebrow Pencil: is the best color I've ever found. The name of the color isn't listed on the pencil, but the code is"EBPB01". I have fair skin with yellow undertones and medium dark brown hair. This pencil is a perfect match for me. I've tried other eyebrow pencils and they always end up turning auburn or look soooo fake. …

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Superstay lipcolor

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/06/2014

I've reached the dreaded "50", which means my lipstick will not stay on my lips. Since I refuse to have my lips injected, it's been a never-ending search for a long-lasting lipstick. I've been using Revlon ColorStay, which I find to be very gummy. However, I think I've found a replacement with my new discovery of Maybelline SuperStay 24 2-Step Color.

I …

Palettes - Urban Decay - NAKED Basics Eyeshadow Palette [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/30/2014

Love this palette and it's a MUST HAVE if you can no longer wear shimmer, shine or sparkles. Originally, I purchased the Naked palette #91663, which I believed was NAKED, but it turned out to have way too many shimmery shadows for my 50 plus, semi-wrinkled eyelids. This Naked Basic is my perfect daily palette. My favorites are W.O.S., Naked 2, and Faint. I use Crave as an eyeliner and to …Read more

Blush - Laura Geller New York - Blush-n-Brighten in Golden Apricot

Apr/30/2014

I've been a Prescriptive fan for 25 years and they discontinued my favorite blush. I've been looking for a replacement for my PX Pressed Powder Leaves. I purchased Golden Apricot because Pink Grapefruit was out of stock. I read the reviews, thought I'd take my chances and MAYBE I'd get lucky. Not the case.

Three stars because the blush is very pigmented, the …

Eyeliner - REVLON - Colorstay Creme Gel Eye Liner (All Shades)

Apr/30/2014

I purchased this by mistake from drugstore.com. I ordered it in Plum and thought I might as well try it before I sent it back. This has to be the worst packaging I've ever seen. The brush is very tiny and it is useless. Based on the size of the bottle opening, I had a hard time finding the right type of brush to fit inside the bottle. I finally settled on an e.l.f. Essential Eyeliner …Read more

Apr/30/2014

I've reached the dreaded 5-0 and I refuse to have my lips injected. This means almost every lipstick ends up all over my face. I decided to try Revlon Colorstay in hopes that the lipstick would stay put. "Endless Spice" is the perfect daytime color for my yellow orange, warm, but pale skintone. It's MLBB with a bit of color and "Bare Maximum" is slightly darker and …Read more

Apr/30/2014

I've reached the dreaded 5-0 and I refuse to have my lips injected, which means most lipsticks end up all over my face. So, I decided to try Revlon Colorstay in hopes that the lipstick would stay put. I will say "Endless Spice" is the perfect daytime color for my yellow-orange, warm, but pale skin tone. It's MLBB with a bit of color.

The bad news is I …
