  • Covergirl LipPerfection Lipcolor

    My daily go-to color is Sultry. This gives me a not-quite nude lip. (There's a lighter shade if you want a nude lip) It feels nice on and lasts very well. When I want a stronger daytime color I reach for Rich. It is a lovely rose that's very warm in tone. People have asked me what I have on when I wear that one. Will definitely be exploring more shades in this line. Why pay more?

  • CoverGirl CG Smoothers AquaSmooth Compact Foundation

    I have very oily skin and have been using this foundation for about a year and a half. This makeup gives me a nice, dewy look (one of the Sephora ladies asked what I was using because it looked so good!). I am 41 and very pale so need something that evens me out without making me look caked-up and older - this fits the bill. I have tried every liquid foundation you can think of, even pricier ones, and they just don't look good on me anymore as they once did no matter how I apply them Now I use Aveeno Daily Radiance moisturizer, then Smashbox Photo Finish primer, then the CG foundation and set with a touch of Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder. I'll blot mid-afternoon but don't have to reapply pressed powder. Easy breezy!

  • Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder

    Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder

    Wonderful Finishing Powder!

    I've been using this stuff every day for about a year and a half. It's the one product I don't begrudge paying 60-plus dollars for because I'm only on my second container! It lasts well. Another reviewer said they've replaced theirs 6 or 7 times, not real sure what's going on there?? The travel sized kabuki brush has been perfectly fine, though the little handle gets cracked. This will NOT hide much in the way of pore size or discoloration in my experience; that's not what it's for anyway. It is an excellent finishing powder that's actually good for your skin. I have oily skin and have no trouble using it. It sets my foundation so well that I hardly ever have to touch up with pressed powder, just use a blotting paper around noon. Worth every penny.

  • Clarisonic Mia 2 Sonic Skin Cleansing System

    I've been using my Mia2 all of 9 days, but am already so impressed with it that I feel compelled to share. This little gem has two speeds and a travel case. It also prompts you when to change to a different area of the face while cleansing. It has a one-minute cycle: 20 seconds for forehead, 20 more for nose/chin and 10 for each cheek. I use an additional 20 seconds for my neck. Fabulously clean skin like I've never felt. I was skeptical, but now kind of wish I'd bought it sooner. It helps your skin care products work better, and I've noticed an immediate improvement in texture and clarity (I'm 41 and very pale so every flaw shows). Try it, it's an investment I doubt you will regret.

  • Clarisonic Daily Cleanser

    Clarisonic Daily Cleanser

    Surprisingly Impressed!!

    I got a sample of the Refreshing Gel cleanser with my Mia2. I liked it so much I went to Sephora and got the full sized version. I have oily skin but it's also very sensitive to most cleansers MADE for oily skin. This cleanser makes my skin feel soft, not dry or tight. Willow Bark, CoQ10, Green Tea and Bearberry are just a few of the nourishing and soothing ingredients. Time will tell if I need to switch formulas for winter, but so far so good!

  • Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30

    I have been using the untinted Positively Radiant for a long time, so thought I'd give this a try. Ugh! It was so sticky and gross that I didn't even give it a second chance. Did NOT work for me at all. Perhaps you will have better luck.
