Oops…that went flying off before I finished my rant. The point is: make sure the makeup performs before releasing it on the public. MAC is a perfect example of this problem. They throw so many “collections” […]

I am pretty forgiving of drugstore brands but if I get a dud from a high end brand I would be reluctant to ever buy a make up product from them again. With the resources behind them, there is no reason for a […]

I have a pretty good color sense overall, so I start with what I plan to wear and I go from there. It is always cued off my outfit. If my clothing choice dictates peach or coral, I will then pick out a blush in […]

I brought two bottles of this stuff back from Paris only to find it in several Korean beauty supply stores in the Los Angeles area. I think it is actually an Asian product, perhaps Japanese. You can buy it in […]

I have always had very good experiences with Nordstroms. Recently I have placed a couple of orders with Beautylish. All went well, no problems…but the customer service vibe I felt from them was superb. I was […]

Patricia commented on the post, What color blush do you gravitate towards most? 3 weeks, 3 days ago

Since the fall and now into the winter, I have been gravitating toward neutral shades. I have even used some lighter bronzers on my checks. I wear a lot of reds and browns in the cooler months and these colors […]

Patricia commented on the post, How did you find your foundation shade? 3 weeks, 6 days ago

MAC matched me to NC20 a few years ago. Prior to that I realize now that I was always using a foundation shade that was pink toned and it never looked quite right. I am a very light olive. No pink.
Years ago, […]

This brush just looks so uncomfortable to hold in the hand. Real Techniques has some very good brushes for reasonable prices. Why oh why did they not just stick with what they do so well? I have not read a […]

I do my own pedicures and my tip for making the polish last and last without chipping is to add a second top coat the day after the pedicure. In addition, I run the brush across the tips of the nails. I use Out […]

I have very dry lips. In order to wear lipstick comfortably I must use a light layer of balm. Unfortunately most balms dry my lips out. The only balm that works for me is HPA Lanolin from Lansinoh. This is a […]

Collagen Serum from Skin Actives, however I have back ups to my back ups. I am never without this product. Use it day and night under what ever else I put on my face. My husband uses it too so I have to keep it […]
