Wow, wow, wow, wow. This serum is completely fantastic in every way, and I rarely say that about expensive skincare products.

A few things to know.
My skin: mid 40s but with very few lines, combination tending to dehydrated, definitely sensitive and will break out from certain products. I tend to use a simple skincare routine and overall that leaves me with "good skin" …

Mascara - Lancôme - Hypnose Doll Lashes

2.0

Feb/18/2014

Crunchy, spindly lashes that don't have an even coat. This mascara adds some length and color, but it doesn't look natural, and it is not at all volumizing. Maybe if you are looking for a particular effect that doesn't involve volume, but otherwise, I would avoid this.

Powder - Dolce&Gabbana - Perfect Finish Powder Foundation

Feb/18/2014

I am on my second compact of this powder foundation. Yes, I finished one and bought another, something I never do. It is THAT INCREDIBLE. The best powder foundation that I have ever tried, and I generally dislike powder foundations. Ivory, the lightest shade, is a perfect match for my NW10 skin. I have dry skin with combo areas and some shine on my chin and nose. Most powder foundations cake or …Read more

Mascara - Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara

1.0

Feb/01/2014

This mascara was disappointing. It added a modest amount of volume and definition to my lashes, but it made them look and feel crunchy rather than soft. My lashes looked spindly and artificial. Definitely not a great look. The worst part is that it smudged under my eyes NO MATTER WHAT I DID. That never happens to me with mascaras. No matter how much powder I wore to set my under eye concealer and …Read more

Moisturizers - Unlisted Brand - Rodin - Olio Lusso

Aug/29/2012

Ok, true confession, and it is embarrassing. I bought this insanely expensive oil a while back, tried it a few times, felt it was too scented for a face product, and swapped it away. I counted it as a crazy purchase. Then last month, I saw that there is a set with travel samples of all the Rodin products and since I liked the smell (just not for a face product), I bought it in another crazy …Read more

Eye Makeup Remover - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Sens'Eyes Waterproof Sensitive Eye Cleanser

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/11/2009

I've been using Lancome's Bifacil for years and don't need to switch, but I'm a sucker for hype. So I bought Sens Eyes during Sephora's F&F. I wanted to love this. I read the reviews and the raves on the boards, but I am disappointed. I am giving it 2 rather than 1 stars because it did remove my eye makeup exceptionally well. No residue, no leftover smudges, and it …Read more

Eye Primer - ARTDECO - Eyeshadow Base

Sep/29/2009

In terms of performance, I want to give this MORE than 5 stars. I like it better than UDPP because it doesn't settle into the crease on my middle-aged lids. My shadow also goes on so smoothly and evenly even when I'm sloppy and rushed, and the effect lasts all day -- no fading. You just have to be careful not to apply too much. It really is an awesome primer. Why four lippies, you ask? …Read more

Blush - By Terry - Rose de Rose Sheer Liquid Blush

Aug/03/2009

Crazy expensive? Yes. Absolutely gorgeous and unique product. Yes!!! I have this is #1 Fresh Rose, and I think that it is a truly fabulous liquid blush. It gives a lovely rosey glow, not as warm as it looks in the bottle, but not too cool either, very neutral. On me it is the exact color that my skin gets when I'm in the sun or cold (for reference, I am a PPP, KA SSE 1, lighter than all MAC …Read more

Eye Shadow - NARS Cosmetics - Silk Road Duo

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/01/2009

I'm really disappointed with this new NARS duo, but for a very specific reason that may not apply to everyone. Yes, the two colors are gorgeous and are something that I've been waiting for -- a rosier, slightly darker, still shimmery version of AAE. They could be very versatile neutral colors to add to NARS' range of neutrals, which, as the Best palette shows, are really amazing …Read more

Blush - CHANTECAILLE - Aquablush in Radiance

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/25/2009

Let me start by admitting that I am a highlighter addict. I have too many to count, and after trying them all, this is one of my top 3 ever.

I first used a Chantecaille Aquablush in Charming, which, true to its name, is a blush, and I fell in love with the texture -- cool, light, not at all greasy, super blendable, totally unique like water on the skin (hence the name). Then I tried …
