I finally caved and bought a Milani baked blush in Corallina. I don't need another blush but there has been much hype about this line of blushes, so I waited for a sale at my local store. At last, the day came with 25% off any Milani product. Corallina went into my cart and on my face the next day, and mostly every day since. It gives my face a pretty flush of color with just a bit of shimmer. This color is versatile, buildable, and has very good pigmentation with good staying power. This has become a favorite.

Charismatic Coral 421
I was looking for a coral lipstick for Spring and came across this one that was mentioned in a magazine. I am a fan of L'Oreal Colour Riche lipsticks so I figured I'd be safe giving Infallible a try. It's a winner! Creamy when applied, excellent color payoff, lightweight. It's a bit sticky on the lips but not overly so. I haven't put the long lasting aspect to the test because I typically just wear lipstick out to church, errands or other short outings. I'll be on a 9-hour flight soon so I'll put it to the test then. Regardless, this lipstick is a winner for me.

Matte and marvelous
On first application, the matte texture feels somewhat dry. After a few uses it seems to glide easier and feels more moist on the lip. But if you like a creamier consistency, apply over lip balm or add lip gloss on top. Good range of colors. The three colors I have are beautiful; 902C is a tan/nude color, 912C is a rose with a coral hue, and 915B is a brick red color which is exactly like L'Oreal Colour Riche 755 Spiced Cider. A wonderful addition to my lipstick collection, and the price is right.

Lovely subtle color in this silky-feeling gloss. Not what I would consider a high shine but it does have super-fine sparkles in it that reflect light in somewhat of a shimmer. Not much of a scent or taste that I can detect. Good-looking tube and it has a seal around it that keeps the excess gloss off the wand when it is pulled out so it leaves the right amount of gloss on the pad to apply. Bought Mocha-mazing to try and will definitely go back for some of the other colors offered. UPDATE: Bought another--One Shine Day. This is a gorgeous rose color. I can also add that the moisturizing quality and shine lasts for quite a while; the color fades just a bit but still looks nice. It has now earned a 10 rating from me.

Bronzer that should be called Highlighter
I bought this based on a recommendation from YouTube makeup guru emilynoel83. The color is called Reserve Your Cabana but it is not the typical brown bronzer. It's a beige color that gives the skin a beautiful highlight. I swirl this on the apples of my cheeks and up on my cheekbone before I apply my blush. I also dust some on my forehead, chin, cupid's bow, and bridge of the nose for some subtle highlight. The end result is the appearance of a healthy glow and beautiful luminosity. It's probably my favorite product from Wet 'n Wild, both for the result and the price.

Sheer Red 309
This lipstick is a great buy for only 99 cents. It is a deep red/maraschino cherry color and very moisturizing. It's also surprisingly lightweight and silky feeling. This is the kind of red lipstick that can be worn for daytime or a night out.

This has the shine of a gloss, the moisturizing quality of a balm, and the color payoff of a sheer lipstick. It's lightweight and longlasting. Easy to apply and the jumbo shape is comfortable to hold. The color is much like the cap, just a softer version. I think this just may be the perfect lip product. Fantastic CoverGirl!

This mascara delivers! My lashes get a false-eyelash look to them with One By One. They look longer, are fanned out, no clumps and hold a curl all day. Very impressive mascara. One of my first 10-star ratings.

This foundation gives this 44-year-old woman the appearance of someone years younger. The coverage is great, finish is beautifully matte, color is just right. One pump from the bottle is all that's needed to achieve smooth, shine-free skin. It's an easy consistency to work with, and for added coverage on my age spots I just dab a little more over them after a minute of setting. My combination skin feels great with this Covergirl formula and goes most of the day without needing any blotting on my oil-prone nose. I finally found a foundation that works for me!

Moisturizing, feminine colors
I have this lipstick in Fairest Nude (subtle pink for nude lips), Nature's Blush (pinkish brown for everyday), and Spiced Cider (brownish berry for a bolder lip). This is my preferred brand of lipstick for it's moisturizing quality, color pigmentation and color selection. The tube it comes in is pretty with a retro look to it. Never had any trouble with the top coming off or the lipstick breaking off. I have repurchased Nature's Blush because it's my go-to dailywear lipstick to finish my face.
