I love their blushes and the almond shadow eyez pencil/stick. I use it as my eyeshadow primer. I hate their packaging. I would prefer an eye shadow pencil that twists up. I also hate the messy displays at my […]

My favorites are still Mac. I have tried a few of the MUFE shadows, but I think I just got ones with too much shimmer for my older eyes. I really need to try their matte shadows soon, maybe with the VIB sale at Sephora.

I love Nars blushes so much so that I collect them and have all of them. I find the eyeshadows to be nice but I can find nice for less money. I really like the new foundation and Sheer Glow foundation. Orgasm […]

◾Favorite pink blush? Nars Desire

Bronze Goddess in medium is my holy grail thanks to Dusty. I’ve used Estee Lauder products on and off for almost 40 years. Double wear foundation is awesome when my skin isn’t acting super dry. I hate fragrance […]

I haven’t found a palette that I love. I’m not a makeup artist so I don’t use all the colors in a palette. I just need a bronzer, contour and highlight. I do like my Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar contour and […]

I guess I didn’t read the Mac 9x Palettes correctly. The 9 eyeshadows fit in the quad compact. Disappointed, but what was I thinking at that price????

I have very dry skin and it’s extremely dry in the winter. I love Embryolisse Crème. It works wonders on my skin. I find silicone based primers of no use on my dry skin.

I will pay more for products not made in China. I feel that China doesn’t have proper quality control and may use questionable ingredients as evidenced by dog treats and food made in China.

So glad I didn’t order this one. You saved me a trip to return it. Thanks Christine!!!

The Dior “Kingdom of Colors” House of Pinks eye palette and the Vibrant Color Powder Blush. I should have waited for your review and saved myself a trip to Nordstrom to return them.

I’ve depotted many of by Mac blushes and eyeshadows. I use the lighter method, probably not the safest but it is fast. I don’t depot much these days. I buy Mac and MUG without the package.

I haven’t had that issue, but I’m in my 50’s and use lots of eyecream before I apply the concealer.

Benefit Erase Paste and Mac Pro Longwear concealer. I haven’t tried the It Cosmetics or Cle de Peau yet.
