This is good stuff. I have congested, oily skin with occasional breakouts, and this calms the redness, helps lighten the brown spots, and keeps everything smooth. I have a high tolerance for products like this, and am able to use it under my eyes. Note that it has the correct pH.

This is a leave-on treatment, and it does create a smooth surface for applying SPF & makeup. It is …

Lipstick - Palladio Beauty - Herbal Tinted Lip Balm Golden Pink

When they say golden, they aren't kidding. This is a soft pink with lots of gold shimmer. Looks great with bronze tones. Just the right consistency--not goopy or gritty, with good color payoff. It's a bit softer than traditional lipstick, so the chapstick-type packaging is very appropriate. Ulta had this for $4...totally worth it.

Makeup Brushes - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Studio Stipple

Ok, so the MAC 187 it ain't...it's slightly less stiff and less dense than the 187. Because it is less stiff than the 187, you'll have to use a lighter hand to avoid getting large "stipples" on your face when applying foundation. However, it's still a great brush, especially for blush & bronzer. Everyone needs one like this! Totally worth the $3. See my photo …Read more

Until today, my favorite C brush was from Essence of Beauty. No more! This picks up color nicely, feels good on the skin, and has a nice weight to it, in addition to a great price. Check out my comparison photos to see the differences & similarities.

Polishes - RIMMEL - Lasting Finish Pro - Crushed Pearl

Crushed Pearl is indeed very pearly, with a pink & grey iridescence. It shows as a pearly pink with 2 coats on the nail, but the grey is more apparent in the bottle.

I love the paddle-style brush, which makes for an even, neat application.

The wear is good, but I'm not so sure about the 10-day claim--maybe for someone with hired help to wait on them hand & foot? …

Primer/ Corrector - Paula's Choice - Shine Stopper Instant Matte Finish Oil-Control Primer

I have an oily t-zone & cheeks. This stuff does what it says it will, and then some--I was able to go more than 6 hours without oiliness everywhere except my forehead. Pore minimizing? Meh. It is a light formula, not as slick feeling as Smashbox Photofinish primer or Monistat, but it is instantly mattifying and a little goes a long way to create a smooth surface. The tube should last for …Read more
