Trish McEvoy is well known for her amazing skill as a makeup artist and her high-quality product. But the organizational tools for her makeup line is what really sets her product apart from the rest. This adorable planner is sized for both petite and mini makeup pages, and comes with a Power of Makeup Palette. I love how it has handles, for easy carrying.
But I had a dillemma. Minearal foundations accentuate my pores. Could be the product- could be improper application on my part. Whatever the reason, I didn’t want to give up. That’s where Dr. Brandt Pores No More comes in. Smooth the product over the problem areas, and let it dry. It’s a flesh-colored cream with a powdery consistency. Apply your foundation over it and voila, no visible pores and the perfect finish we all want.
Have I mentioned that I have dry skin? I know, I know… I rant about my skin like a madwoman. Every now and then, my dry cheeks need an ultra-moisturizing treat, and L’Occitane’s Immortelle Creme Mask is just that. It is applied like a mask. You can either wipe it off after 10 minutes, or just let is soak on in. I was impressed with the look of my skin the morning after using it. It was like giving my dry cheeks their own overnight drink of water.
I was in the market for a new daytime moisturizer, so I decided to buy Peter Thomas Roth, despite the fact that I had never sampled it before. Similar to his other product that I have ranted and raved over, I was delighted with this purchase. The moisturizer absorbs in a flash (so you don’t waste precious morning-time waiting for it to dry). It has an SPF of 30, so you can be confident your skin is protected no matter what comes up. Impromptu office picnic? No problem…
But, my favorite part is this– it is so gentle on the skin, it can be used on anyone from 6 months of age and older. On top of working well on my skin, I can use this product to protect my entire family!
As far as home microdermabrasion goes, this is now my favorite product. Physical Chemistry is exceedingly simple to use. Just apply a small amount to your face and massage in small circles. The product feels gentle on the skin compared to the competition I have tried, and I could see a real difference in my skin the next day. I’m not sure if this product minimized fine lines (that perhaps, could happen over time), but it noticeably reduced the dry skin cells on my face, revealing healthy radiant skin. My skin even felt softer to the touch after using the product.
For an added bonus, follow up your treatment with a biore pore strip. You won’t believe the gunk you can extract from unclogged pores!

I have something in common with Ponce de Leon… I am eternally searching for the fountain of youth. Unlike Ponce, I am not convinced this youth can be found in what we now know as "Florida". I search for it in smaller places–tubes, jars and bottles of various creams and lotions I can apply to my face in an effort to look 25 again.
It was during my search that I found my now-favorite moisturizer, Peter Thomas Roth Mega Rich Intensive Anti-Aging Cellular Creme. I found it quite accidentally, using a sample that had been tossed into a box with another purchase. When I woke the morning after applying it, I noticed my skin looked more radiant than I had seen it in ages. I was instantly hooked, and followed up with a purchase of the Mega Rich Intensive Anti-Aging Cellular Eye Creme.
In addition to noticeably improving the condition of my skin, one of my favorite things about this product is that it is fragrance-free, making it great for a woman OR a man!

My L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream dutifully keeps chapped skin at bay. It absorbs quickly into the skin, and has a fresh (and not overpowering) scent. My only problem with this hand cream is I have a tendancy to forget to stock up. Perhaps that’s why they now sell a bundle of three!
Doesn’t shopping at places like Target give you the coolest feeling of empowerment? It’s like you’re Bill Gates rich, and can buy anything and everything in the store, without even looking at the prices. Shopping at the Eyes, Lips, Face online store gives you that same feeling. Every amazing product will set you back only $1… And, since their product has been raved about by everyone from the editors at Allure magazine to Ms. Oprah Winfrey herself, I figured it was worth a try.
I received my package 5 days after ordering, and felt like a kid in a candy shop. For only $25, I had received over a dozen lip glosses, two compacts filled with eyeshadow and blush, a nail file, eye widening pencil, eye makeup remover pads and nail-polish remover pads.
Generally, my philosophy is that you get what you pay for. But this product is really fun, and wears well. The glosses are hypoallergenic, and have a high-gloss look reminiscent of Lancome’s Juicy Tubes. The eyeshadow is vibrant, and doesn’t wear off quickly. Their eye makeup remover pads worked equally as well as my all time favorite.

Those of you with dry skin like mine know how hard it is to find a good toner. Many toners have alcohol in them, and just suck all moisture right out of your skin. I highly recommend Chanel’s "Lotion Tendre" for those among you with dry skin like mine. It’s super gentle, but sucks dirt off of your skin like a vacuum. It must be used to be believed!
My friendly neighborhood Chanel representative insisted that I sample a different foundation the last time I was in for an "express" makeup. I normally don’t tinker with my usual regimen, but let her give the Pro Lumiere a spin.
While it is a bit heavy for everyday use (I’m particularly suspicious anytime I see skin that looks too perfect), this foundation is ideal for a night out or an event. My skin looked completely, utterly, flawless while this was on. It was shockingly porcelain. Had it existed, I certainly would have selected this to wear on my wedding day.
