Ladies, it can be a huge pain in the butt to find an illuminator for our mature faces. So many buys and trys I found "the one"! Browsing in Sephora I swatched this and fell in love! Subtle, moisturizing and downright gorgeous. The hubby even asked why my skin looked so good. Well this is truly the bomb and worth every penny of the 30 bucks! Doesn't take much and if you see the swatch on my hand in the sun, its very subtle. If you're searching try this out, I think you will be pleasantly surprised. Bonus: the mirror says " Shine the light you were born to shine". I've found my holy grail!

I am so bad at priming my eyelids. I prime my face and lips (seriously when you are 49 the lips need all the help they can get). I bought Eden because it is a great alternative to eyeshadow when I am lazy or in a hurry. A quick swipe and not only are they not budging they are pretty without being over the top. (And it looks like I did something with my eyes:). Urban Decay sure makes priming the lids easy and fun. They have multiple shades and the anti-aging one is a favorite for my under eyes as well.
The product is one I won't quit anytime soon and besides, nobody needs to know that I was lazy that morning!!
What do you think about Urban Decay's primer potion? What's you favorite? Do tell!
It has landed at Target here in the states and although it is a smaller (15oz) size, I got it to see what all the hype was about. I actually like the size at it's easy to work with. I love the aroma, it's a bit medicinal, but not bad. I use a cotton pad to apply after I cleanse my face at night, it doesn't sting and sinks in quickly. I have used it for about 2 weeks nightly. Ok, here is where it gets dicey. I have not seen a difference in my skin yet, maybe I need to just use it a bit longer. It feels good and makes me feel like I am doing something good for my skin but I'm not sure what I'm looking for yet.
As we all know products get tons of hype for sales. I will continue to use it and give it a fair shot as I adore Pixi products. Have you tried this product? What were your results, please let me know in the comments!

I may have been blonder in my youth, and now although dirty blonde I still am one hairy woman. Arms, legs and face (sigh). I have a thick fuzz on my jawline and "shudder upper lip. Now unless someone is looking really closely or I am in full on sunlight, you really can't see the "fuzz". But I CAN!! Also, when applying foundation I have to be careful to stroke down to make sure the fuzz lays flat. So I have used Nair for years. Nair though can burn the tar outta me and that lovely red, scaly side effect sucks.
I was wandering Walgreens and saw this on the clearance endcap and thought why not! It freakin' worked! It isn't as harsh as Nair and works just as effectively and is soooo much less expensive. I panicked though because it was clearenced thinking it probably is discontinued, but after researching and shopping found it at WalMart, Albertsons and other stores and it is only 4 bucks at most places. It is a bigger tube than Nair and lasts so long.
I thought seriously about shaving my face but couldn't bring myself to have stubble. This is my new favorite and even the hubby tried it and was impressed. If you have serious fuzz and want to try something different, grab this and try it, I think you will impressed! Don't forget to patch test first (the nurse in me had to say that ").
Do you have a favorite hair remover?
I have read tons of reviews on the concealer and purchased it first and fell in love with the product (I am super picky about my undereye concealer). The sponge is easy to use, places the product right where I want it and isn't too heavy and hasn't creased on me! So off to the store to purchase the foundation. It is also easy to use, light coverage and of course works dang well with the concealer. Throw into a purse for simple touch-ups on the go. I actually am impressed with the products and because you don't need a lot, this should last for quite some time.
A budget brand with great products is right up my alley and these are just right. What are your thoughts? Do you like convenient products like this? Would love to hear from you in the comments!

I am always looking for great cleansers and don't want to dry out my face more than menopause has!! I purchased this from Sephora to give myself options to cleanse. First you need verrryyy little to clean your face, second it suds up seriously (for those that love their suds:), third, it has a very unique smell to it (it doesn't bother my migraines). I really liked this product. It definitely leaves you squeaky clean but not dried out. The bottle will last for quite a long time as you need one little pump.
I have used the GlamGlow masks and this is reminiscent of those. Not sure that I would repurchase as there are several drugstore options that I feel are dupes but will enjoy using it in the meantime. It really does leave a moisture barrier behind as this is the product claim. GlamGlow has definitely expanded their product line but they all are very similar.
Have you tried the new GlamGlow products? What are your thoughts?
