Beauty Products I Want To Try!


I love being a girl and I do love a good beauty product. I honestly can not pass by a display of lipgloss without wanting to buy one, and chances are I will buy one before I leave the store.

With the onset of Pinterest it has opened my eyes to a whole world of like minded product junkies willing to share some of their finds with all of us out in blogland.

I have a pinboard that is titled," Products I would like to try." So today I thought it might be fun to share some of them with you all.

Who knows maybe you have already tried some of these products, and can give me a thumbs up, or a thumbs down before I purchase any of them.

According to Dr. Oz, this is suppose to be the best moisturizer. For the price I guess it is worth a try ……


I read about this next moisturizer on Tina's blog, The Enchanted Home.

Tina is like me in that she loves to try new products. I am not sure if she is a product junkie like me, but she loves a good beauty product, and shares her finds from time to time on her blog.

She heard about it from Marshara who writes, Splenderosa blog. I just love the way blogland works, don't you?


Since the warmer months are here, we all need to make sure we use sunscreen. 

I saw this on a TV show, you know one of those shows with all the rich, blonde ladies that live in Beverly Hills?(guilty pleasure.) 

Anyhow, I thought it was such a neat concept I looked it up until I ran across something similar to what I saw on TV.

It is sunscreen in a powder form. It is inside the tube and it comes out of the brush. 

How convenient is that? Plus I think when you are out in the sun, and a little sweaty this might be a welcomed sight and so easy to apply to your face. Fun little item to carry in your beach bag.

Speaking of make-up, and summer, how about something that will seal your make-up, and help it last all day. 

In fact this stuff is so good it is used by  Princesses!

Yes you heard right!! Disney Princesses use this…….


Now let’s talk about the fun stuff!!!


You all know I love lipstick, and lip gloss, and if you didn’t know you can ask 5 of my closest friends what Kathysue will almost always, if not always buy when she goes into Ulta, Sephora, or Nordstroms.


Tom Ford’s Pink Dusk found HERE!

Isn’t this the prettiest soft pink? I think it is definitely worth a try. If this is bit too pricey, do not fear, Kathysue is here!!

OBSESSIVE/ COMPULSIVE (only when it comes to lipstick or lip gloss, honest)

This stuff sounds remarkable and I am definitely going to try this. Let me have you read what they write about this product, and see if you don’t agree with it is worth a try for only $16….

What it is: A high-opacity lipstick concentrate with unprecedented longevity.
What it does:
Flash a fabulous smile and a stunning splash of color with this lip formula that combines the longevity of a lipstick with the breezy application of a gloss. The rich pigment will drench your pout and the blend of essential oils, including hemp and peppermint, will soothe and soften the skin for a supremely comfortable finish. For easy travel and application, each Lip Tar comes with a vinyl carrying case and mini lip brush.
This set contains:
- 0.33 oz Lip Tar
- Mini lip brush
- Vinyl pouch
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
What else you need to know:
This straight-forward formula does not contain petroleum or silicone and is 100 percent vegan and cruelty-free.

Okay just one more little goodie, I need to save some for another blog post.

The newer generation of blush is coming in cream and liquid formulas. To be honest I use to use a cream and a liquid when I was younger, but it is NEW again…..

This one looks worth trying to me…..


So there you have my dear friends. A little fun beauty post with lots of goodies to try. 

Be sure and tell me if you have already tried any of the above, or if you do try any of the above. 

Just send me an email at:

 If you have already tried any of these products, leave  a comment, and tell me what you thought about it.

I haven't used any of these but I am always looking for inexpensive beauty products. I truly believe the less expensive products are made in the same factories as the high end products, just labeled and packaged differently. You have made me a believer in lip gloss. I may not have as many shades as you do, but I have a few. :)

See you in a few days!!!! eeeeeeek! xxoo

Love your beauty posts like you I love trying new products. You might have read about the Eterna 27 on my blog as I posted about it. It is excellent, very very rich and thick, you need only a small amount, as per the instructions, because of the ingredients, which at one point I believe it was banned in the U.S. you need like the size of half a dime. The jar will last me a looooong time. It feels so good though on my super dry skin. I love it, its great if you like a product that leaves your skin feeling dewy. Thanks for the other suggestions!

I have never used Etherna but I remember my Mother did and loved it. I didn't know it was still in production I will have to give it a try. Thanks for the tips I always enjoy hearing what beauty products other people like.

Kathysue, I've tried the St. Ives, as recommended by Dr. Oz. I liked it! It's especially great in warmer climates, like we have, as it does not leave me oily. Can be used day and/or night.

Debra Phillips said...

much luv

I don't know if I can afford following you since I am compelled to buy what you show. Good thing I don't watch the shopping network.

I'm loving all the pink for spring! The colorescience is a wonderful line and you often see it in Derm and Cosmetic Surgery offices. The powder is mineral based so it's easy on the skin. The dispenser is a great idea and I often recommend this for men. As their hair thins.. they can easily protect/ "powder" the exposed areas. This will provide protection without the lotion mess:) !!

Love these posts! Kathysue, I believe every word, the Ads say about every product. Over all my years of skin care, ranging from taking care of sunburns when I was 10, in 1950, to today, I have tried them all!!! I even SOLD three entirely different lines! Boy do I have stories of those days!
Bottom line.
One product and only one made a remarkable difference to my complexion!
That was Retin A which was prescribed to my by my Dermatologist! I used it for years and it worked MAGIC! I believe it is the reason my skin today, at age 72 1/2 is as good as it is.
I'm not sure if it is still available, but none of the beauty products that contain Retin A come close to the actual ingredient. Others have some parts as ingredients in their product, but to have it work it has to be ALL just plain Retin A

haven't tried any of these, but i'm lovin the votre vu skincare and makeup i'm using. anything that serves a dual purpose (treatment and concealer, i.e.) is a winner for me!



Linda {Calling it Home} said...

I would love to try a liquid blush. I have tried a cream blush, but not liquid. I haven't tried any of the above products.

I use the St. Ive's moisturizer every morning and before bed at night. I love it and it moisturizes without leaving my skin oily. Which sometimes happens with me. Also agree with what Patty said. I was on prescription strength retin-a for a few years and it helps tremendously!
