I am always on the hunt for a great white shirt. I need to do a new post with all of my favorites soon. This great shirt from Mona Thalheimer for Artful Home is a great season spanner. It is lightweight enough for Spring but could be layered under a jacket or vest right now. It also comes in a crisp blue and white stripe.
The flattering ties can be adjusted to tie on the sides or brought to the front and tied together. Sadly the gray-haired model had to rely on her husband for this pic. Please disregard the double chin and other faults! I am wearing the Lennox with their Parker Runaround Sue Straight Leg Jeans.
What new skin products are you loving? Please share. I have a couple that I have tried and have given a thumbs down, and a couple that I LOVE! Everyone (including Beth Dijalili (Ageless Style featuring Beth Dijalili) is touting the benefits of a Vitamin C Serum. If you are considering one DO YOUR Reserach. Some of the most highly rated have the lowest amounts of Vitamin C and no vitamin e or hyaluronic acid. I am trying Cosmetic Skin Solutions . It had a good price point, and all of the ingredients the experts say are necessary. So far it is not irritating my skin and it goes on smoothly.
The skin ceuticals vitamin c serum is universally respected by most all of the beauty experts. People rave about it. Read and compare the ingredients to the one I am trying. I thought I would try the less expensive version first.
I had acne prone skin for literally fifty years. Yes, I was still getting the annoying pimple way into my fifties. I never could use anything oily on my skin so I may be unique. I still use the less expensive olay regenerist serum. I have yet to find one that works better for me. However, I am open to anything new. Any suggestions?
I have yet to find a good foundation primer. Maybe they aren’t necessary but I need all the help I can get these days. I tried the highly rated smashbox photo finish foundation primer. They have a ton of different options. Maybe I didn’t try the best one for my skin type. It felt like glue on my face and I just didn’t feel it gave me any benefits. Any suggestions in this department?
On to foundation. So many experts love the Perfection Lumiere Velvet by Chanel. I invested. For me, it did not provide enough coverage for my acne pitted, wrinkled, over sun-exposed skin. It goes on like velvet just like it says and probably works well for those with fewer problems.
I reverted back to my old standby, It Cosmetics Illuminating CC Cream, which is much more reasonable and effective for my issues. It is $38 and has a bonus of a 50 sunscreen. I also like the illumination factor.
How about you do you? What products work for you? Do you have a better option for a foundation, cc, bb or whatever the heck we call them now! I have tried several concealers none of which seem all that great. Believe it or not I don’t have discoloration under my eyes. However when I stopped in at the Ulta in Paso Robles (there are some girls that know their stuff there) one of the girls I respect pointed me to the Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer. She noted that it is also the best concealer ( in general) in her mind. Hey this stuff is good! It is my new best friend. The first concealer that has worked for me.
Lastly, is mascara a problem for you guys or is it just me? Applying mascara without my glasses on is a challenge. I feel like every one that I have tried comes out in “glops”. I have tried the expensive ones and the inexpensive. I am trying the Benefit Roller Lash currently. Of those I have tried it is my current best. FYI they have a small travel size. You can try it and if you don’t like it you haven’t invested more $$$.
Inevitably I keep returning to good old Maybelline great lash. It is cheap better than many I have found. What do you think? Do you have a favorite that goes on without “glumping”?
That about sums up my new favorites.
What products are you using that you love or hate? Please share!
