Help for vertical lines around lips

Last Reply by JeanLouiseFinch 1406842537.55 | Started by Swedishmiss in Beauty Banter

Is there anything (other than just a good all-round moisturizer) that helps diminish the appearance of these? I didn't even notice these a year ago, and now they are becoming quite prominent I'm sure in addition to getting older, mine have not been helped by my smoking when I was in my early to mid 20s. Thank you ladies for any suggestions you might have. By the way, I am currently using Kate Sommerville age arrest eye cream, and that seems to be maybe helping a bit...or maybe it is just wishful thinking. At any rate, I don't think it helping so much that I will be shelling out another $90.00... Continue Reading

For those who use only cruelty-free cosmetics...

What are your favorite lines? Many of the lines I used to use either use animal testing themselves, or have been bought by larger companies that animal test. If you have a favorite, would you please post what specifically you like (i.e. foundation, lipstick, etc) Thanks! Continue Reading

 

My Review of ROUGE BUNNY ROUGE Primer/Mattifier

Started by Swedishmiss in Beauty Banter 1404003429.13

I recently purchased this at Dermstore, hoping to find something without silicones that would help control the shine I get within a couple hours of applying makeup. I've used this for a few days now. I don't think this is a product that I will be repurchasing, although it did help with shine (but only for maybe an extra hour or so at most)---and it has not broken out my sensitive skin. When I applied it under my makeup (after my SPF) it really did little or nothing IMO. However, yesterday I tried a different approach...I applied my SPF and all my makeup and let it set for a couple minutes. ... Continue Reading

 

Warm sheer mid-tone plum lipstick...

Last Reply by glmama 1404164519.68 | Started by Swedishmiss in Beauty Banter

I was at Macy's this afternoon with a friend. We stopped by the Chanel counter (my friend is obsessed with Chanel) and the sales associate was wearing the most beautiful plummy lipstick from the Fall 2014 collection called "Aura". In the tube it looked scary, but once applied it was very wearable. I would love to find something similar, but not so pricey ($35). Does anyone have a suggestion? Thanks! Continue Reading

 

Anyone tried Rouge Bunny Rouge?

Last Reply by hkgirl05 1403722484.19 | Started by Swedishmiss in Beauty Banter

I just ordered their mattifier/primer from Dermstore. It isn't loaded with silicones (which my skin doesn't like) and I am hoping it helps with the shine I always (year round) have after a couple hours after applying makeup. I'll post a review after I try it out a few times. It has been very hot and humid here, so it will be a good time to give it a test. Continue Reading

 

Re: This homemade shampoo/conditioner really works believe it or not!!!

Thanks for posting. I am going to give it a try. My DH has used vinegar (dilluted) for years a final step after shampooing (he does rinse it out well). It has helped a lot with the dandruff he used to get. I honestly have never noticed any smell after his hair dries. Continue Reading

 

Please help me find a new moisturizer

Last Reply by Nona of Five 1402780033.787 | Started by Swedishmiss in Beauty Banter

My skin is changing, and I am finding that moisturizers give me a very unattractive, shiny look after an hour or so. Although I am over 50, I STILL have combination skin that is sensitive and prone to occasionally breakout :( I have tried using the tiniest bit of moisturizer under makeup, but it doesn't seem to help. Does anyone else have this problem? I would so appreciate any suggestions or recommendations. Continue Reading

 

Re: Dr. Denese Day cream

I used the day cream, but found EltaMD 41 to be better in texture, did not oxidize on my skin, and is much more reasonably priced. Continue Reading
