New And Old Friends From The Make-up Counter


I am a self confessed product junkie. I love a lovely fragrance, and anything that makes me feel  more feminine, or look better.

In fact as I am typing this I have a masque on my hair and on my face! I try to do this at least once a week, usually it is on Sunday, but I needed a little puffing and fluffing so today is the day.

There are certain products that I go back to all the time, and then are the newer products that I am trying that I feel are making a difference in what my skin, or hair looks like.

A couple of newer products that I am really liking are by Paula’s Choice.

Great skin care product!
I use the 5% every night except 2 nights out of the week, On Wednesday and Sunday nights I use the 10% solution. You put this on after cleansing and before your night cream. I can really tell a difference in the texture of my skin since I started using this product.

The other new kid on my block is Revlon Eterna 27 with Progenitin Revlon Eterna '27 Moisture Cream With Progenitin, 6 Ounce: Beauty
This cream is pretty heavy, but for someone with very dry skin it is wonderful. I use it as a night cream, but have also used it for daytime when I am not applying any make-up.

This has definitely made a difference in the moisture level of my skin. It is still on trial, but for the last couple of months I can tell a difference so I think it is a keeper. 

The cleanser I use by Lierac is going to be my forever friend. I love this stuff and highly recommend it. It dissolves make-up and even mascara. It smells heaveny too. So easy to use…..

If you are in need for  a new cleanser try this, you can thank me later!

I want to leave you with a couple of cosmetics that I am never without. I have used both of these for years and everyone that I have recommended them too has become faithful users as well.

Both products are by Bobbi Brown

I use Rose Shimmer brick because I just want a healthy glow and with my fair skin this does the trick. It comes in many different colors so I am sure you will find one that works for you.

Lip shimmer in Lilac sugar. Yes it is lavender, BUT, trust me this gloss works over every lipstick from pinks to corals to reds. I have used it on every color.

It gives the most beautiful gloss and last longer than any other gloss I have used. It does not travel off your lips either!! This is a longtime friend of mine and I will NOT be without it.

Did you know if you add a bit of a blue base colored lipstick your teeth will look whiter? This does that too!!!
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Lip Gloss

One more that many of you that read about this product have written and thanked me when I first introduced it.

Best under eye cover-up, brightener......

Boi~ing  light 01  Best cover-up EVER!! and I have used a ton over the years!! $20

As I said in the beginning I am always trying new products so I started a Pinterest board so I could pin some of the products I would like to try.

Must de Cartier is my favorite perfume, but I love to try others. My recent purchases are Angel by Thierry Mugler and La Ville est Belle by Lancome. Both are lovely. I looked on your Pinterest board for where to get perfume samples, but couldn't find it. Could you let me know, please? As for cosmetics, my favorite brand is Laura Mercier with the exception of mascara. I have used Lancome (currently Hypnose Doll Lashes) for decades and love it.
XO, Victoria

Always love to hear of new products. I am intrigued with the Eterna cream. I will need to try that as I have extremely dry skin and so far nothing has helped. Thanks for the recommendation! Boi-ing is fabulous! I always keep a backup on hand.

Karen Albert said...

Thank you so much Kathysue, I love trying new recommendations and am off to see your Pinterest page!

I will never give up Chanel #5 and Angel by Thierry Mugler.

I am always mixing up my makeup brands and creams! It keeps life interesting!

Thank's for these recommendations. now I use "Nano Collagen" which I got
from my dermatologist after a couple of laser treatments. My face look better, fresher and a bit more plumber. My preferred parfume is
"First" a very old scent from Van Cleef and Arpels which I change with
24Foubourg from Hermes. Both are very
seductive scents.

Have boiing Eterna 27 after Marsha at Splenderosa recommended it...yes it is very very rich and needs to be used quite sparingly but its good stuff! Love your post on products!!
