    DDF Protect and Correct

    An OK $58 Moisturizer

    DDF Protect and Correct UV Moisturizer SPF 15 ($58)- A facial moisturizer with a Micro-Radiance Complex that diminishes the look of discoloration for even, translucent, healthy looking skin. Contains SPF 15 to protect from UVA/UVB damage and future hyperpigmentation. I have noticed that over the years I've developed some tiny brown spots along the bridge of my nose and cheeks. I'm not usually very good at always wearing sunscreen. So I'm paying for it now. I was pretty excited to use this. It's a little stickier than I like but it has no real smell, which is good. I started using it in the end of the summer and thought it was too heavy, so I'm going to try again now when the weather gets colder. Overall it dries nicely with no funny feel and moisturizes. I can't say if it actually helps with making the brown spots disappear. They look about the same to me. I like it as a daily moisturizer in the morning but $58 is pretty pricey.

  • L'Oreal Paris Ideal Skin Genesis Daily Treatment Serum Concentrate

    -L'Oreal Daily Treatment Serum Concentrate (won Allure Magazine's Best of Beauty "Beauty Breakthrough" Award, $24)- One pump of this is more than enough. The clear serum absorbs quickly. I found that using it continuously made my skin a LOT smoother. -L'Oreal Daily Moisturizer Oil Free Lotion (won Allure Magazine's Best of Beauty "Beauty Breakthrough" Award, $24) - A unique lightweight, oil-free hydrator that smooths skin's surface and evens tone for a more flawless complexion. I like the light rosy smell of it, it fades, but it's pleasant. The combination of the serum and lotion is not heavy in any way, in fact, it feels like you're not wearing anything. Both formulas contain Pro-Xylane and Hyaluronnic Acid. They absorb into your skin immediately and don't leave skin feeling sticky. I think $24 is pretty reasonable for a serum, I don't think you can find one for under $30, and I love the sleek tubular packaging.

  • Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact

    Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact

    Sophisticated Shimmer

    There's a definite reason why there's 6 or 7 versions of the Shimmer Brick out- everyone loves them. They can be used separately as eye shadows or together, as a blush or highlighter. I have the Pink one, which is nice as a blush. Rose Quartz is my favorite though, it compliments my olive skin nicely. I sweep a fluffy brush over all the colors and dust on the high planes of my face. The look is subtly shimmery.

  • MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural

    I use this in Medium/dark. Provides light, natural, matte, sheer coverage for a powder. Perfect for topping off face makeup. A MAC Pro claims this gives you "16 year old skin" and I can't say it's untrue. I like using this for weddings. My only complaint is that it doesn't come with a mirror or powder puff. How impractical.

  • DuWop Revolotion Face

    I use this in Tara (light beige) and love it. I use it daily. I squeeze a small dab of the thick tinted moisturizer on my fingers, warm it up between my hands and spread it over my entire face starting in the middle. The light reflecting pigments provide a luminous, even toned look. Light coverage. SPF 15. I have noticed that a weird orange oil builds up in the cap, but I just wash it out.
