NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer w/Broad Spectrum SPF30

A couple of months back I started a series titled “Patty’s Current Foundation Obsessions”.  Part 1 was Makeup Forever’s Face & Body; Part 2 was Dior’s Forever Foundation.  Part 3 has actually been a work in progress.  When I started the series, I had a foundation locked and loaded for part 3, but then something […]

Shiseido Spring Summer Makeup Collection 2012

I apologize for being so late bringing you the Shiseido Makeup Spring Summer 2012 Collection.  Some of you have probably purchased some of these colorful products, but I was late to the party….again.  With so many brands doing so much advertising one can lose sight of Shiseido who is known mostly for their skincare.

Splurge v.s. Steal: WEN Cleansing Conditioner v.s. Marc Anthony Oil of Morrocco Argan Oil Collection

I’m drawn to palettes for a few reasons;  they are convenient, color coordinated, travel easily and I’m lazy. LORAC’s Unzipped Palette ($40) fits the bill on all counts. Having all these coordinating colors in […]

bareMinerals Ready Blush: Review, pics, swatches

by Staff Writer Patty   Bare Escentuals and bareMinerals are lines that typically don’t get much attention from me.  I have about a half dozen of their loose eyeshadows and a handful of various face products (bronzer, Mineral Veils, etc).  While I don’t reach for any of these items with regularity, I do really like […]
