Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Powermatte Lip Pigment

I have this in American Woman, a “chestnut rose” which looks like a rich rosewood shade on me. Applies like a dream and dries down in a minute or two. It’s semi-matte until it dries then matte when dry, especially if I Pete my lips together. It’s not as dry as other matte liquid lipsticks I have tried. Wears comfortably.

I wasn't sure if I was ready for liquid foundation, so I thought a powder one would be a good start. Plus, I wanted the mineral SPF. It's been years since I tried this. I'm AAB/NC25 and Golden Beige #13 is a good match for me. I use the Bare Minerals Beautiful Finish Foundation Brush to apply. I don't have any complaints with the packaging - there's a twist lid which …Read more

Makeup Brushes - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Beautifully Precise Multi Blender Massager

Found this at Target for $12. Funny looking brush. Wide but fat, and asymmetrical (longer on one end than the other with a slight wave to the profile). Looking end-on at the tips of the bristles, they look like massaging nubbins. Silvertone handle pinches down to a narrow neck and flares out to a triangular knob that's flattened on the end so you can stand it up. So, it doesn't fit …Read more

This brand offers a try-before-you-buy, where you pay $5 for the shipping and have 14 days to return or get charged the full price $44 to keep it. The online quiz didn't seem particularly insightful, but probably necessary since they offer 50(!) shades. The shade it picked (#105, medium neutral) turned out to be an excellent match for me. After moisturizer and primer, I apply with a …Read more

I really like this brush. The shape looks gimmicky but performs beautifully - picture a flat top brush with round cross-section, then extend the bristles of the outer 1/4" of the diameter by another 1/4" in length to form a longer ring of bristles. Synthetic bristles. Very soft, and great for buffing powder foundation on the skin. Thick, solid handle with round cross-section. $32 …Read more

I bought this because I want to switch to a moisturizer with physical sunscreen and ditch the chemical sunscreen ingredients.

At first, I did not like this. It felt like... sunscreen. Ugh. You know, that greasy, thick, waterproof white paste feel, on my face and on my hands. It took a bit of massaging to work it in to make the whitish cast go away in spots, but the whiteness …

I've been wanting to go back to shampoo bars. My hair is short, fine, and without any issues.

I love this product. It's simple and pure, and does a great job with my hair. I wet my hair first, work up a little lather with the bar in my hands, then work my lathered hands through my hair. I don't need much lather at all to clean my hair, so this bar is going to last …

Eye Makeup Remover - Fresh - Soy Conditioning Eye Makeup Remover

This cleanser comes in a tube with a pump squirt dispenser. The product has a thick, white, creamy, almost gel-like consistency. Actually, it feels like a cream moisturizer with a little more slip. Easy to spread on the face and work around to dissolve makeup. It seems to do a very good job and rinses away fairly cleanly.

I got this in a duo with the facial cleansing oil. GoTo Face Hero is a favorite of mine, and this is equally nice. Soaks into my skin nicely without leaving me feeling greasy or oily. I apply this before moisturizer. Packaged in an amber glass bottle with dropper applicator.

ingredients:
vitis vinifera (grape) seed oil, salvia hispanica (chia) seed oil*, passiflora edulis …
