Salon Day is my favorite day!   Hair cut, manicure and then out to lunch!  Fun!

I found this set while shopping last week and I am thrilled - a $93 value that I picked up for $29.99 - and so far my sensitive skin likes it!  I hope to go back this week and get another one.  The price was much better than on Amazon. (found it at a discount dept store)
bare minerals Ready To Go  Complexion Perfection Palette
  Included is:
- bareMinerals READY Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 20
- bareMinerals READY Touch Up Veil Broad Spectrum SPF 15
- bareMinerals READY Bronzer
- bareMinerals READY Luminizer
- Correcting Concealer Broad Spectrum SPF 20
- Mini Precision Face Brush
- Mini Tapered Face Brush
- Keepsake Makeup Clutch and mirror
 Top: Luminizer - Foundation - Mineral Veil and Bronzer on bottom
The foundation color seems to run slightly yellow but the mineral veil is a perfect match so I think these combined will be fine for all year round. Many times I can go with just mineral veil and have enough coverage - but I always like to add a swipe of bronzer all year.
Apparently there is a SeaNutritive Mineral Complex that delivers anti-aging benefits- can't have too much of that!!  Great size for travel and includes everything you need for the face.  This would also make a nice gift.  My girlfriend & I are talking about a short cruise and this kit will be perfect - all my products in one place.
                            This tutorial will show you how to use this palette.

I did not have such good luck with a sample of bare minerals Bakeskin Sheer Sun - it is a serum bronzer that I added to my moisturizer.  My skin reacted - not pleasantly!!  I had this same reaction when I tried the Clarins serum-type bronzer - apparently there is something in the tanning formulation that makes my skin unhappy - oh well, back to my powder bronzers.

I enjoy the Sephora Favorites kits they produce every year - it is a wonderful way to try a variety of products especially high end items, before committing to a full size.  This came recently but I have not tried anything yet - it may end up being a gift: 'Skin Wonderland'
Do you own this and do you like it - which are your favorite products - let me know.

I really like Laura Mercier products so was excited to see this:
 Laura Mercier Holiday 2016 Collection - Layer Up Holiday Caviar Stick Eye Colour Collection
Deluxe Caviar Stick Eye Colour in 4 shades: Rosegold, Amethyst, Aubergine and Tuxedo

Unfortunatley I already have these colors from last year!  I like this product but have not used all of it  - some have never been used!  I guess the 'limited edition' means that the time this will be available will be limited.

I love fresh Parmesan cheese on most anything and I recently found this at BJs while shopping:
I bought a new grater and cut this entire piece into sections and put the extra in the freezer - there will be no 'wood pulp' in this house!

Grand daughter loves 'helping' decorate the fall entry way table - fall has the most beautiful colors!  It's a season that should last longer!

 Pink isn't just a color ~ it's an attitude!
