Jan/26/2016

If I could go back in time and give my teenage self one beauty product, it would be food grade, non heated, Australian Emu Oil. I use it on my hair, skin, nails and even on my gums as needed.

Emu oil is one of only a few oils that can penetrate the skin and the hair shaft. It is highly anti-inflammatory. It has lessened my occasional yet painful cystic acne. It works well on …

This is my HG eye primer. I used it when it was packaged differently and sold for a dollar, and I use it now when it costs $2. It works just as well as its sister elf product, the Studio Eyeshadow Primer, which costs $3. I also think it works as well as the Urban Decay eye primer.

I use it under my eye shadows, and they stay put ALL DAY in hot Arizona weather. My eyelids are a bit …

Concealers - wet n wild - CoverAll Correcting Palette

I bought this today and am taking it back tomorrow. I tried it on my dark circles and it did not correct them at all. I tried a variety of combinations. A total fail.

I think that the product is just too light weight.

This the first time I have been let down by Wet n Wild.

I purchased this polish at Kmart BOGO free for $1.99 for 2 polishes. It is a deep, cool toned, lilac,rose cream finish polish. One coat gave me the color in the bottle. I applied it with a base and a quick dry topcoat. It applied a little streaky, but it settled to a very nice finish. Please note that I tend to apply heavy coats. It is a very soft and feminine color that I recommend.

Concealers - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Tone Correcting Concealer

I have this concealer in 3 different colors. I use the lightest as an eye brightener and the other 2 as concealers. I change them depending on how much sun I get. They are good but not great. They don't cover raccoon under eye circles, but give a decent level of coverage. They only last a few hours. They are not my "go to" concealers. My HG is EL Doublewear concealer. I use the …Read more

I always carry Neosporin in my purse and have done this for at least 20 years. I dab it on pimples, cuts, hangnails, a sore nose, blisters and any irritation that could become infected. I once tried a generic topical antibiotic which wasn't a 3 in 1 and it wa worthless. SInce then, I have been faithful to Neosporin.
