First off, I am a big lipstick user ..... for 35 years or so, really! Ok, a bit of an addict, but I hardly ever buy a lipstick I don't use, but I go through plenty of phases, colors, textures, brands ...... That said I might not go through too many tubes all the way to the bottom, but I am on second tube of this!

I am not in a country where Lipstick Queen is available, so I …

I had a sample of this in the Fluid version, which I used on a trio, seeing "Day Cream" in the title, what a surpeise! It totally evened out the tone of my dry travel stressed skin and felt so smooth and refreshing! I just blushed and powdered over it for my traveling "makeup" and just bought a tube for my upcoming trip and to use when I want a nice quick face without trad …Read more

I got this lovely lipstick as an extra and I love the color and texture, but the fruity smell bugs me and I think the case looks and feels cheap. Neither of those two cons are enough to seriously diminish the pleasure of wearing this lipstick, which is smooth and light and brilliantly formulated to be rather natural and dewy looking with one layer, and deeper and more sophisticated with a couple …Read more

Jun/08/2013

When I was searching online for the perfect sheer red lipstick at the beginning of the year, this one kept coming up, but I was a bit leery of having Rosy in the name as I was looking for a true red, or so I imagined! Finally technical innovations are coming to makeup in ever varying ways and the solid gloss is one I adore at this age (50+) when most satin or matte formulations seem particularly …Read more

I had to share my review for this fantastic nail polish for anyone who wants the perfect red for Summer toes! A wonderful swapper sent me a bottle of By Terry red vernis a number of years ago when I wasn't even wearing reds. Very sweet I thought, but I won't wear it much. But I had a moment when I craved red toes and on it went.......this gorgeous vibrant easy to apply shiny lasting …Read more

It looks like this might be a good product for younger gals with oily skin, not exactly the anti aging cream market, right? It is loaded with alcohol (the third ingredient) ouch! But prob great for the breakout prone. I always find it do odd to have "good" ingredients in with obviously "bad" ones, what's the point? Great texture though, how about an alcohol and BHT …Read more

Mar/03/2012

I have never tried a product in a store that made an IMMEDIATE difference I could see and feel. I am always hoping that I can find things that will really make a difference in my skin somehow, and mostly effects are subtle and/or cumulative..........This stuff is amazing. I used it on my naso labial lines, lip lines and corners of my mouth and there was an instant sensation I can't quite …Read more

Feb/22/2011

This is certainly one of the loveliest YLBB shades I have ever seen. I layer it over a lip marker for longevity and it does pretty well. The Ellis Faas textures are particularly marvelous, and this lip gloss lasts about as long as most others, except the truly sticky kinds. The lip colors are a bit tricky, I start out thinking that they are too "normal" but then I catch a glimpse of …Read more

Feb/22/2011

I needed to add my minority dissenting voice on this fabulous product, to balance things out here! This product must have been created just for me -- it is the first treatment to bring shine to my locks in over 20 years, since I have been living in LA, which has robbed any shine my hair once may have had. I am a newly discovered Curly (or rather Wavy) Girl, and this is thus far the only …Read more

I have always stayed away from Retinol since some stupid Dermatologist gave it to me when I was in my 20's and it almost wrecked my skin. Now I'm totally dubious about "Medical" skincare, although I'm in my 50's and need all the help I can get ; )

I am a dedicated Arcona user, it saved my skin the year I turned 50 and it's never been stronger …
