I found this set at a discount dept store and since it has 100% minerals as the base I decided to try it.
I have never heard of bellapierre cosmetics but it won an award in 2014 from Natural Health magazine so for under $10, why not try it.
Included was a small kabuki brush, base/concealer, mineral blush in Desert Rose (very pretty) and mineral foundation.

I really like the bare minerals products I have started using so I am hoping this will be a good back-up, esp for traveling.

I am crazy for the Milk products I got recently on a Sephora sale. The oils are moisturizing without a strong scent and sink in quickly - if it is very cold outside I add a little more on top of my make up.
The application is so easy with the roller ball and I really see a difference in the softening of the wrinkles around my eyes by using the Sunshine Oil.
The Hydrating Oil Stick (the larger item in the picture) is perfect to use on the neck & chest.  It contains natural oils such as apricot, avocado, jojoba, and orange peel oils - all are good for the skin.
I am so pleased with these products I am going to buy extras!

I love the colors in this Chanel compact - Les 4 Ombres 31 Prelude.  I don't think this palette is currently available but the soft pink & lavender and bronze are my colors!  I will probably be very stingy with it!!

The tree is officially done!


Now if I just survive the kidney stone attack I will be ready for the holidays!

I have been so happy with my Bare Minerals purchases I have bought multiples during the sales!
My skin acted up recently and now that my derm has me under control I have started using the mineral products - so far so good!  At least with rosacea, you can save on blush!!!

I bought 2 of these during a recent sale ~ since they were less than $20 each!
 Each kit contained primer, face brush and concealer brush, original foundation with SPF 15, concealer and mineral veil. (If you click on photo it will get bigger)
I am not much of a primer user and I won't use the concealer brush but someone will what them.
I truly love the mineral veil and many times it is all I use for a day in town.

This Ahava Dead Sea Water mineral hand cream is wonderful!
This silky formula absorbs quickly with no greasy residue  ~  just a faint fragrance that dissipates quickly.  Would be a nice addition to a gift bag.

So glad to have my 2 turkeys in the freezer, ready for the holidays - they are only about 21 lbs - I prefer larger but there were none available - but that's ok because there will also be ham at Christmas;  just leaves more room for dessert!!

The Sephora sale starts this week so we might as well get busy ...........
 upload_5121702948779863071.gif
 What do you have on your list?   So far I have:
Sephora Favorites Lashstash
Lancome Energie deVie Smoothing & Glow Boosting Liquid Moisturizer
Sephora Collection Foot Mask
bareMinerals Be Beautiful Ready Face & Eye Palette
Sephora Favorites Perfume Sampler
Sephora Collection Ultra Shine Lip Gel
What are your 'must haves' with 20% off?

I am adding this to my arsenal - I know I should use more Vit C products so I hope this will work:
Triple C & Peptides
This is a watery consistency and absorbs quickly - I found this at a discount dept store but it is also available on Amazon (though at a higher price).

While out shopping I found this from Too Faced:
Too Faced Selfie Powders Palette
These are not as sheer as Hourglass Ambient Powders (which I love)  but can certainly give you a color correcting look for photos.
Retails for $36 but no longer available in the USA - if you are interested in this come back as I will probably sell it. (The box is sealed)

I really like the No7 skin care line and have been using this:
I can't say all the wrinkles disappeared (but I can wish!) but it is moisturizing and you can add concealer as needed.  I am glad to see more of this line available in the US.
This Almay Smart Shade CC Primer  is wonderful!  It gives sheer moisturizing concealer to any area on the face that needs some help and it has SPF 15 - it has a lovely pinkish tone:

A little birdie told me the Ulta Black Friday ad will have OGX hair & body products Buy 1-Get 1 Free!
OGX Sunflower Shimmering Blonde Conditioner:
I am definitely getting this!

Have you started your holiday decorating?  Yes I have because little GD likes to help and she does not come every weekend.  I always have some unbreakable ornaments that she can hang and if they drop, no harm done.
 
It's a work in progress - I need a few more details (ornaments & pearl strings) and it will be finished.
What is your color scheme this year?

I realize this was a summer release but I was on the fence about it - so just now got it and I am not sure I will keep it. Yes it does have a slight sweet/peach scent.  I have never been crazy about orange/coral colors but there are only 2 in this palette so that's ok - the colors tend to be darker than I normally use so this may end up being a gift.
                                                Too Faced Sweet Peach Eye Shadow
                        18 shades of matte, shimmer, and satin pretty peach & copper tones

White Peach
Luscious
Just Peachy
Bless Her Heart
Charmed I'm Sure
Tempting
Charmed
Nectar
Cobbler
Candied Peach
Bellini
Peach Pit
Delectable
Peaches n Cream
Georgia
Caramelized
Puree
Talk Derby To Me

It must have been popular because it sold out several times and currently is not available at Ulta - I can think of a teenager that would enjoy this!

This is how I clean the make up & brush holder - the blow dryer! Super easy!

This is a nice brow product if you are in the market ~ "Brow Power" by It Cosmetics.

This is a universal color and can be make darker by using a firmer hand.  There are caps for both ends so this will make it simple to carry.

I recently read a fashion blog that has a link up but does not want anything but clothes!  For me, fashion and make up are joined at the hip!  How could you put together a great outfit and not do the face & hair??  I certainly believe a blogger should do as she pleases with her blog but fashion without beauty is champagne without the bubbles!

The current issue of House Beautiful features an entry way in a lovely lavender!  Since my dining room is pink I appreciate the use of color.  I think this is a Georgian (1700-1780) Colonial which can easily accommodate color and I hope this bodes well for the spring colors for 2017.


I have a surprise for you! The folks at Schwartz Bioresearch sent me a sample of  their Phyto Ceramides and are kindly offering a giveaway for you!
Dr. Oz has done a show about ceramides and how they can possibly help reduce wrinkles - I am all about that! This product also includes vitamins A, C, D & E, all of which I need more of.  I realize I will not be wrinkle free overnight but it is a great way to start the process in a natural manner.
Good luck! (the company will award the gift).
