Couldn’t agree more! I bought the powder in “Dim Light” and it never fails to astound me, lol. I’m 55 and CANNOT do shimmer; I really do not understand how Dim Light gives me a hint of color and major glow […]

I love highly-pigmented/opaque glosses. After a few hours, my lipstick has worn off enough that a good gloss can revitalize it in a big way. My favorite one happens to be super cheap, too: NYX Butter Gloss in […]

Peter Thomas Roth Mega Rich moisturizer; the best thing ever made for my getting-older dry skin. It’s pricey at $120 for a large-ish jar but once a year, they do a flash sale and mark them down to $25 and I stock up.

Wow, that’s a shocker; a rare flop for LMDB, which is normally a terrific brand. So glad to know these are problematic or I definitely would have purchased. What a shame…maybe they will adjust the formula if […]

Glad to know this…I have been coveting one of these and will hold off now.

I used to use several different ones, but the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer pretty much does it all for me these days. One thing that has helped is I got a very good concealer brush at Sephora (their Pro Blending […]

BB cream, for sure! I have about 9 tubes of them sitting around, ranging from Korean to Japanese to high-end, and none of them does a perfect job, although a few come pretty close. I really like the skin care […]

Although I tend to prefer higher-end makeup products, the ONLY thing I ever hit pan on is dirt-cheap ($5) Butter lip gloss by NYX in Tiramisu. This is like the HG of peachy-nude-MLBB glosses and it lasts for […]

I get a lot of use out of Ulta’s reward program and I think they strive to offer a variety of rewards they think customers will actually use. One of my favorite ones is a full-sized bottle of Hempz Body Lotion, […]

I’m a sucker for peachy nude lipsticks (will throw cash freely at both drugstore and high-end brands) and BB creams, usually the more spendy ones. I literally have about 40 peachy nude lipsticks and continue to […]

The Tarte 6-pack of chubby shadow pencils that was a holiday release this year. The taupe and old gold/bronzy pencils are absolutely beautiful and wear like iron. Second place goes to Clinique’s; Weeping Willow […]

I almost always do a little pre-purchase research now, even on drug store items. Thanks to sources like Temptalia and MUA (both of which are invaluable), there’s so much more info out there than in the past.

Margot commented on the post, Rant & Rave: BB Cream 2 years ago

I’ve tried about a zillion BB creams (both Asian and US/European brands) and my main complaint is why can’t someone make a BB with as much coverage as an Asian brand in more shades? Missha Perfect Cover is one of […]

Although my mother didn’t wear much makeup, she always had her nails done and lipstick on, which gave her a well-groomed appearance even when she was in super casual clothes. I’ve gone through a huge cycle with […]
