    It has amazing coverage and gets rid of all my redness even without using

    It just makes a great difference to my appearance in general xD

    I was bamboozled into attending a Mary Kay party, where we all did facials and make-up. Their products are actually really really good, but the Mary Kay saleswoman are like snakes in the Garden of Eden. Don't let them take you to the back room alone, unless you want to leave with a huge dent in your wallet, weighed down by boxes of exfoliating cream and age-defying foundation. Bah.

    I like Avalon Organics Lavender Daily Moisturizer. It keeps my skin from being dry, but it doesn't give me acne like every single other moisturizer I've ever tried.

    I also like Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer in Nutmeg. It's a tinted lip balm. Gives just a little color while keeping the chap-ness away.

    Face Secrets Smudge Brush is a good tool for eye lining if you want a more subtle look than pencil.

    I use my own homemade Castile soap and am using baking soda and apple cider vinegar to clean my hair with satisfactory results.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    My last lip product purchase was some kind of Burt's lip gloss shimmer thing.

    It's divine, both looks great and smells delish, too.

    Ha ha - I hate Mary Kay parties! Men would never allow themselves to all attend a party they didn't want to go to so that they can support someone who is looking to support her friend that sells Mary Kay. I actually went to a seller's meeting once. It was crazy weird. Some of the high ups really really ENJOY the selling part.

    Tastes Like Purple - do they sell it in your town or do you order it? If so, how did you check for shade?

    Jen - I was so sad about the ProX stuff because I think it really does good things. I found that with their Definity line too. I'm 33, with fairly dry winter skin.

    Nah they don't sell it here _
    I have to go to Dublin to get it. I don't mind too much though
    because it's a great excuse for shopping
    Well the scary makeup lady told me what on was best for me.
    She gave me the shade desert because of the green undertone that'll cover
    my flushed cheeks hahaa

    I use NIA24 mineral sunscreen for my face. It is a physical sunscreen, so it gives complete protection, which many sunscreens don't.

    As far as foundation, what are you looking for coverage wise and how is your skin(dry, oily, etc.)?

    My skin is a tad dry due to the cold and crapola weather here so i tend to get foundations that are oil based

    Foundation? I have skin that is dry during the winter, but gets some zits from time to time. I have some melasma on my upper lip that gets worse during spring/summer, even with sunscreen and a hat and my skin tone isn't completely even. I'm pretty lightskinned and have translucent skin that doesn't tan and has a little redness around my nose by my cheeks. It doesn't fall clearly into cool or warm categories (more cool than warm, but cool usually looks too pinky and warm stuff is too yellow). I don't use powder because I find that it usually looks too dry and it sometimes settles into lines.

    I didn't use sunscreen when I was a kid or in my earlier 20s. My skin is beginning to show little lines and I am concerned it will end up looking like my Grandma and my aunts' so am doing what I can to take care of it now. I have a moisturizer with retinol and antioxident serum and alpha-hydroxy gel to exfoliate.

    Fidelia: if you're concerned about neglecting your skin when you were a little younger, I suggest getting a jump on using products like OTC collagen fillers...L'Oreal makes a decent one.

    I use L'Oreal True Match foundation. I wish I could afford Mac and Chanel. Somebody wanna buy me some?

    My one real indulgence is Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush lipgloss in Cherry Bomb. It costs like $7 for a little tube of it, but I'm totally in love with this lipgloss.
