    Too Faced Snow Bunny Bronzer

    Luminous Bronzer and Highlighter

    Even though this looks shimmery in the compact and when swatched it actually gives a very nice luminous glow without being too shimmery nor too subtle, just perfect. It's a highlighter, bronzer and blush in one! If you don't need coverage, just brush this all over your face and it will help even out your complexion. Can be layered for more bronze color or just use the pink and champagne to highlight. Concentrate on cheeks to use as blush. If you need some coverage, instead of layering over your makeup, swirl your brush in this then your usual powder. This product is so versatile for light complexions. The only thing I don't like is the compact is thick and bulky.

  • Shiseido The Makeup Perfect Smoothing Compact Foundation SPF 15

    Medium to full coverage. The sponge it comes with cakes on too much powder, I prefer to use a brush. I only use this over areas my Trish McEvoy Mineral Powder Foundation does not cover. I don't use this all over my face because I don't need the heavy coverage. The powder is very powdery and come on the brush easily; if you swirl your brush over the powder you will have loose powder everywhere! I use the lightest shade I00, but am usually the 2nd to lightest in foundations and powders; so if you have fair skin the lightest shade will be too dark for you. It looks powdery when first applied but after an hour or so it will look less powdery once it's settled and blended with your skin. Even though you don't see shimmer in the powder - it looks matte - once it settles you get a very natural looking glow.

  • Trish McEvoy Powder Blush

    Trish McEvoy Powder Blush

    Quality Blush but Limited Selection

    Not many shades to choose from, mostly pinks but a basic blush for most skin tones. Only Tangerine is shimmery, the rest are matte or satin so very natural looking. I do like trish's interchangeable pans so you can easily customize your colors. Just wish there is a larger color selection. The blush is pigmented and only a small amount is needed on my light complexion so it should last a very long time.

  • Trish McEvoy Mineral Powder Foundation SPF 15

    There's no talc in this powder. Active ingredients are zinc oxide & titanium dioxide. It evens skin tone without looking powdery, thick or cakey. It's very natural looking and does not cause dryness or flakiness on dry skin. To cover redness I use a concealer underneath as this is sheer to medium coverage.

  • Smith's Menthol Salve Tin

    Smith's Menthol Salve Tin

    This literally heals dry, cracked lips overnight!

    I apply a thick layer at night and exfoliate with a toothbrush the next morning for soft, smooth lips. It's very glossy and greasy so not good for day time use if you use lip color as it will disintegrate and make color bleed. But is a great lip gloss on bare lips. I don't like having to use my finger to apply but this works really well as a quick fix. Since I only use this as lip balm, it lasts a really long time.

  • AmorePacific Moisture Bound Skin Energy Hydration Delivery System

    Instead of water it uses bamboo sap along with plant extracts and minerals to hydrate and protect against free radicals. It's very refreshing and it really does hydrate without making skin oily. It just eliminates dryness and skin feels comfortable without having to moisturize. The mist is not as fine as Caudalie Beauty Elixir but it's not a forceful spray. I like that the bottle is refillable so you fill in your own rose water, toner, etc.

  • Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick

    Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick

    Shade: Soft Nude

    I have this in Soft Nude. Have not tried any other shade. Soft Nude is a pale pinky beige nude. It's very smooth and creamy and it's highly pigmented so gives very good coverage. The color of the lipstick is the color you get on your lips. It is not sheer and will not let your natural lip color show through. Soft Nude is a great everyday neutral. The packaging is also very elegant. Fairly long lasting and a decent price.

  • Chanel UV ESSENTIEL

    Chanel UV ESSENTIEL

    Expensive But Must Have!

    Best sunblock I have ever used! I only use zinc oxide sunblocks on my face and this has a high percentage at almost 20%. It's a milky texture so a small amount is sufficient. I love the compact packaging as well. Very cute. This does leave a bit of a white tint. But applying foundation and or powder over it will even out complexion and the white tint will not be noticeable. Have not found anything out there that comes close to this. It's worth the price!

  • Estee Lauder Lip Conditioner SPF 15

    I like this for both day and night. Instantly makes dry lips feel and look better. Gold tube is very retro and outdated and feels heavy. Around $12 would be a more reasonable price. Sun protection is not broad spectrum.

  • Caudalie Lip Conditioner

    Nice conditioning lip balm. Not very glossy, goes on a little thick. Since it doesn't have Spf I only use this at night but it's not the most hydrating lip balm. If my lips are super dry and cracked this helps by morning but it's not as good as a petrolatum based product. Would not repurchase due the the price for what it does.
