I picked up this eyeliner at a small independent beauty supply store in the Los Angeles area. I got the color BlackBrown #11. For 6 dollars, this is a real bargain. The pencil is traditional style which must be sharpened. The color goes on smoothly and has a creamy texture. It can be blended out but I just let it set for a few minutes as is. I love how this is a rich dark brown that does …Read more

Lipstick - Nuance by Salma Hayek - Color Vibrance Lipstick-Paprika

This is a semi-matte, non drying warm red that does not pull pink or coral on me. I have a lot of trouble finding reds that can work for me. This is one of them. It is not long-lasting. I cannot detect any scent or taste. I don't mind reapplying as the color is flattering to my light olive complexion. I think the shades in this collection are well suited to olive skin or darker skin. …Read more

On me, this is a true Khaki green and I love it. It stays put even without primer which I like as I do not always take the time to do the primer thing. I have the bronze and the taupe in this product and they are all winners for me.

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - Skin Actives Scientific - Collagen Serum

I have been using this product for over two years now and my husband has been using it for about one year. We have seen good results. We are both 71 and we are holding the wrinkles and collapsed facial features at bay. I just wish we had discovered this serum earlier. We are not turning back the clock, but we are holding on to where we are. We do not look our age, I believe, and this serum …Read more

Blush - Coastal Scents - Forever Blush Beautiful

Apr/04/2014

I bought three of these blushes and I have reviewed two of them already. These blushes are a very good bargain. You get a lot of product, they are packaged well with a window on top and they apply very well and last quite a while. This particular color is almost a berry pink. It is very pigmented so a gentle hand is necessary. I am an NC 20 so I have to apply very lightly or else... I think …Read more

Blush - Bobbi Brown - Powder Blush - Tawny

This is my first Bobbi Brown blush and I am very impressed with the quality and ease of application. It is well pigmented so it is best to build slowly. It blends well and lasts many hours. I don't usually keep my makeup on for 10 or 12 hours so I can't speak to that kind of longevity. The color is a muted pink/brown but it pulls a little peachy brown on me. I am a very fair (NC20) …Read more

Lipstick - Bobbi Brown - Creamy Lip Color - Italian Rose

Mar/09/2014

This is currently my fav MLBB. It is creamy,well lasting and most importantly does not dry out my chronically dry lips. I would most definitely repurchase as the story of my life is that I find the perfect make up item and then it gets discontinued. I think I need to get another one soon to add to my back up stash. Bobbi Brown cosmetics are a bit hit or miss with me but the ones that work …Read more

Blush - Coastal Scents - Fresh

Feb/06/2014

If I ran out or lost this blush I would not rebuy it as it is an almost exact duplicate, color wise, of my MAC Gingerly. The blush texture is not of the same quality as the MAC blush, but it is quite good and long lasting. I bought a few of these blushes on line and I must correct a mistake I made in reviewing the color "Poetic". I stated that this is not as much product as MAC …Read more

Blush - Coastal Scents - Forever Blush Poetic

Created with Sketch.

Jan/10/2014

On a whim I ordered three of these Forever Blushes from Coastal Scents. I have only been using Poetic so far so I will not include the others in this review. It is impossible to get a true sense of the colors from the website and there are absolutely no clues to the color family...no descriptions of any kind. I was ordering blind, but because I was placing an order with them for other things …Read more

Lipstick - shu uemura - Mon Shu Red rouge unlimited supreme shine

Jan/09/2014

This is just plain gorgeous. A Chinese lacquer sort of red which leans warm. The formula is satin with some shine and a lot of moisturizing. It lasts quite a while on my lips and does not migrated outside the lip line. I am seriously in love with this lipstick. I had a friend bring it to me from London as I could not find it in the USA website. Definitely not a blue red, but then again, if …Read more
