Love these three things —
I’m trying on a few new makeups. I’ve always loved L’Oréal and Clinique but I’ve gotta tell you I love this new blush and concealer by Cover Girl.
It’s all about the texture. So creamy and smooth and moist. Cover Girl and Olay recently teamed up for a gorgeous line of swirled cream products that I am loving! [But be sure to keep the lid on very tight. I’ve heard the biggest complaint is that it dries out quickly.]
Available in four shades these bold and creamy blushes apply so easily with just a swipe of the finger and blend in beautifully. I bought two colors, Royal Plum, because I always buy plum in Clinique’s blushes, and Rich Cinnamon.
[I’m remembering that day in December when two of my favorite people were trying stick concealer for the first time and slightly resembled Aborigine warriors at a tribal celebration.]
I put on my regular make up base [L’Oréal] and then lightly dab on the concealer under my baggy eyes with my ring finger [presumably because it’s the finger with the least strength and so it doesn’t pull the skin as much.] Then dab on the blush and blend it in. Voila!
The best I can do for almost sixty!
Also loving the Ghirardelli Intense Dark™ chocolates.
It’s the best medical news in ages. Studies in two prestigious scientific journals say dark chocolate — but not white chocolate or milk chocolate — is actually good for you. It needs to contain at least 70% cacao. Of course that doesn’t give anyone persmission to binge on the dark stuff. One square! If health is your excuse for eating chocolate, remember the word “moderate” as you nibble.
