@Boehm Collecter  I tried several years ago, but none had the staying power or intensity of color of the few dept. store brands I’ve tried. If don’t have to keep reapplying, save money that way. 

 

Try Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge, Tarte, & my favorite NARS Multiples in a stick.

E.L.F. has a cream to powder one that is pretty good.

Hi. You were the one who told me about "tightlining”. I bought two Mally gel eyeliners and tried this technique the other day. It really makes a difference!  I have to practice though. 

 

I was wondering what you think of powder blushes vs cream blushes for women over 60?  Lately, I’m beginning to think that powder just isn’t working anymore. I’m thinking of trashing them. What is your opinion?  I also have some of the NARS multiples.

@Himi lover  I love cream blush when my skin is drier. When more oily, I use a cream blush like NARS Orgasm w/ the powder Orgasm on top to set it. Tight lining does take practice, but once you get the hang of it, more lid space which makes eyes appear larger and more open & less mascara coats needed...less clumping.

Thanks. I’ll try that. Like most women, my skin is drier in the cold months, more oily in the summer, but my skin has changed lately and I’m more dry. Well, I don’t want to change the direction of this thread, but I like reading your posts.

HIMI lover, Also love NARS. Always used BB but pot rouge does seem not to be as smooth applying as when I first started puchasing. Coud be my old age. LOL Nars is moe expensive. However, you do get what you pay for. Will continue with the Nars. Since BB sold her company a couple of years ago I believe the products are also changing. What do you think? Still love her Beach parfum. Have a couple of bottles purchased sev years ago that still have great scent. What perfumes do yoi enjoy? Hope I am not being nosey.

Shanus, I have no idea your age. I am over 60 with a couple of slight wrinkles. No num11. Find that cream blushes emphasize the wrinkles. blush seems to lay in the creas. Prefer the powder. Also, use Nars Orgasm. LOVE
