Here’s another confession… even if the product fails me, I still don’t throw it away because I don’t want to admit to myself that I was swept away by the empty promises that had at one time seduced me. Taylor Swift should write a song about that one!
My Sista loves this product. I was surprised because I saw a lot of negative reviews on it. So I had to try it. There was no way I was going to let Sista look better than me!
I think it’s a fairly good product for the money. It claims to instantly erase lines and wrinkles. Ok, it doesn’t do that, but it does a fairly decent job camouflaging pores. Although, I still need powder over my foundation because it does not contain a mattifyer for my ever-present oily T-zone.
This is my favorite primer of all the ones that I have tried. It controls oil and goes on smoothly. It has the texture of a lotion as opposed to the silicone gel. And the best part? – it’s cheap.
I was excited to try this one because I loved the name. I just pictured this stuff spackling my
pot holes pores away. Wasn’t crazy about this because it didn’t seem to do much. Also, my face was an oil slick by noon. May keep it to fill in the nail holes on the walls when we move.
This stuff is the worst. Very thick and difficult to apply. And very pricey. Still in my bathroom drawer… Don’t tell the Mister.
I was dying to try this BB Cream because one of my favorite bloggers recommended it highly. I couldn’t wait to slap this stuff on my face so I would looks as good as my 26 year old blogger buddy. Ok … I bought it and it’s not bad. It goes on smoothly and if you buy the normal to oily type it will keep you relatively shine-free for most of the day. The coverage is on the medium side and it does not offer a lot of color choices. But I would buy it again.
I soon realized with a heavy heart that I will never look as good as this adorable blogger because
there is a 30 year age difference we have different coloring.
Here I go again…. on my never-ending mission to make my pores and lines disappear faster than Edward Snowden. Really wish I could tell you that this is a miracle in a tube but it is far from it. It’s very thick and difficult to apply. Save your money and buy Elmer’s glue – it will do the same thing.
I bought this concealer in the large size when Ulta was offering a deal. It is nice and creamy and a little goes a long way. (I’ll have enough left to leave to my grandchildren when I die). I suggest using a brush when applying it. It has got a lot of color choices which is essential when using it under the eyes. Take it from me, when I look at old photos of myself all I can see are my “raccoon eyes.”
This concealer is not quite as creamy as the previous one, but it is very effective at hiding broken capillaries and age spots. Not that I would know anything about that, or anything.
This mascara is life changing. My suggestion is to use a warm eyelash curler first (run under hot water), apply your first coat and let it dry. Apply the second coat and voila: Hello, Gorgeous!!! After you finish, register those lashes as a lethal weapon!
I tried this product years ago when it first came on the market. I was not impressed at the time because I couldn’t stand the smell and I didn’t think the self tanner was very effective.
I think Jergens improved this lotion a lot. There is no detectable odor and it is a nice moisturizer. The self tanner lends itself to a nice golden brown.
Now, if they could invent a product to get rid of my lines and pores I would really be in heaven!!
Favorite product of my #2? She’s not a big makeup person, but she SWEARS by Maybelline’s BB Cream. She loves how it avoids clogging pores while covering up any blemishes, and, as if that weren’t enough, it has an SPF included.
Any products that you swear by? Would love to hear your suggestions.
That’s it for now, folks. Hope you are having a great weekend.
