  • Maybelline New York Intense XXL Volume & Length Waterproof Microfiber Mascara

    I recently tried this product and I have to admit I was a bit unsure of the white primer at first. It does take some getting used to and some practice. But I was pleasantly suprised at the end result: lashes that were fuller, longer, and more defined without looking too glam or opaque.

  • St. Ives Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Facial Moisturizer

    I bought this product because I needed a heavier moisturizer to use on my face and neck while using a strong AHA treatment. Although I normally pass on creams with mineral oil or fragrance, this one is an exception and the price can't be beat! It absorbs quickly, does not cause breakouts, and it does not feel greasy or sticky. I have to admit that the herbal/citrus fragrance is quite nice- and I get no allergic reactions to it. If you have oily skin, however, I would not use it as a regular day cream unless your skin really needs the extra moisture.

  • Neutrogena Extra Gentle Eye Makeup Remover Pads

    I had extremely sensitive skin, especially around my eyes. So many other eye make-up removers I've tried caused stinging and dryness, but not this one. I don't wear a lot of eye makeup, but generally wear mascara, and a little shadow. This product indeed does the trick as long as you are not wearing waterproof mascara. The pads so extraordinarily soft, too.

  • L'Oreal Paris Ideal Balance Balancing Foundation for Combination Skin

    This product works wonders and the price is even better. I have combination/oily skin that is also very sensitive, so it is hard to find a foundation at this price point. Although I love mineral foundation, it simply does not last nor have enough coverage to last through out a normal workday. Other foundations I've tried for oily skin are too harsh, especially for my age 40 skin. This product past all the tests: not too heavy, shiney, dry, irritating or fragrant. It applies smoothly and evenly with a nicely balanced medium to full coverage finish. I will buy it again, and possibly try the quick stick as well.

  • Physicians Formula Beauty Spiral Brightening Compact Foundation

    I just tried this product and I love it- even more than some of the other brands I've used, including bare esscentuals and bobbi brown. It is one of the few oil-free compact foundations with a creamy, light consistency that doesn't dry out my combination skin or have a fragrance. If you prefer light to medium coverage, this foundation can't be beat. It is very hard to find, though- after searching through Ulta, Wal-mart, Target, and Walgreens, I finally found it at K-mart! You might have better luck ordering from the manufacturer's website.

  • L'Oreal Paris Wear Infinite Eye Shadow Duo

    I am pretty minimal when it comes to eye make-up, but this really does accentuate without overpowering my eyes. I also have very sensitive, dry eyes and this does not irritate at all- something rare for less expensive brands. It is also easy and simple to use, with a good selection of color choices without being overwhelming. My favorite is the Bronze Star duo. It's great for blue eyes!

  • Physicians Formula Physicans Formula Circle Rx Circle Control Concealer

    This concealer is the best I've used for dark under-eye circles. It feels light but offers full coverage, and it is smooth enough to be blendable and gentle on the eyes. I use this exclusively under my eyes, and use the RX concealer on other areas. These are great products that rival many department store brands, especially for those of us with sensitive skin.

  • Physicians Formula Powder Palette Multi-Colored Face Powder

    I recently tried this in two shades with a "buy one, get one 50% off" offer, and I am so glad I did! It is great both as a translucent powder and a bronzer. It is light, finely milled, fragrance and oil free, so what more could you ask for in a powder? I am also 40, and this powder does not settle into those little laugh lines- so for the price, you can't beat it!

  • Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Custom Bronzer, Blush & Eye Shadow

    As a Bobbi Brown fan, I was really intrigued when I saw this product at Ulta for less than half the price of Bobbi Brown's Shimmer Brick compact. The colors are natural and sheer, and I found the shimmer effect to be subtle enough for daytime wear. The Miami Strip Healthy Glow palette is my favorite and one I like to wear as a tawny-rose blush. Great for late summer as the tan fades!

  • Physicians Formula PlentiFull Thickening Mascara

    This mascara is great for everyday use. It does not clump, flake, or smear and it washes off easily. A little goes a long way: all it takes is one or two coats. I will definitely buy it again because its a great value!
