First Impressions Friday Blogmas Edition

So today I have 3 new products that I have tried and that look quite promising. Clinique Uplighting Illuminating Powder in Bronze Glow. This can be used as a highlighter, bronzer, or a setting powder. I purchased it on Wednesday and I used it Thursday and this morning to set my makeup. It gave me a nice glowing finish without being too glittery or making my face shiny and the particular color choice works really well on med to dark brown skin. Although it doesn’t give a matte finish, I have…

Monday Confessions Blogmas Day 5

First, a sample, then a whole full sized jar, and then a repurchase. My daughter also likes this. How I Use It I find it ideal to use after…

What I Wore Wednesday

Wardrobe Wednesday So I wear clothes. I know, hard to believe right? LOL But I actually do. And when I do, I actually like to look good, doesn’t everybody? Now I have to admit, that for me, its a delicate balance. On the one hand, I have to consider size, I am not a small lady, but I am not necessarily large either and I have to consider age because I want to dress very chic and on trend without looking like I am trying too hard. I also have…
