I love this lip gloss. I have it in Ritzy, a dark red with warm undertones. I usually don’t wear red as I prefer softer lip shade, but I really like this one.

L’Oreal Paris Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Day/Night Cream

L'Oreal Paris Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Day/Night Cream

My skin is getting drier as the weather gets colder. I usually have to amp up my hydration during the winter months, and L’Oréal Paris’ Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition is the perfect nourishing day/night cream to help skin stay soft.

Specifically designed for mature skin and perfect for women who don’t have time to follow an extensive skincare regime (day treatment, day lotion, night treatment, night cream, etc.), Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition treats skin to deep hydration and intense nutrition in one step and can be used both morning and night. The cream combines a unique Nutrient Complex enriched with calcium,and it envelopes skin to effectively nourish parched, sagging skin and leave it supple, fortified and resilient.  Plus, the always classy Diane Keaton  is the face of the product. 

What I think: I love the texture of this product. It is almost like a balm, so thick. But it melts right into the skin and doesn’t leave it greasy, just really soft. I even use it in the morning before applying makeup. It keeps me hydrated all day long and my skin looks so smooth.

L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Serum Absolute Makeup

You can count on L’Oréal Paris to make a beautiful foundation. Their L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Serum Absolute Makeup ($14.95 USD) is no exception to this rule!

The claim of this makeup is:

This breakthrough formula is the answer for the woman who wants and expects it all – flawless coverage and age-reversing ingredients all in one.

L’Oreal Paris Root Rescue 10 Minute Root Coloring Kit


L'Oreal Paris Root Rescue 10 Minute Root Coloring Kit

Root coloring kits are so wonderful because they cover the gray (making me feel better) in only 10 minutes! Also, using color only at the crown instead of all over is so much better for the hair! 

The latest kit I tried is the L’Oréal Paris Root Rescue 10 Minute Root Coloring Kit ( $7.99 USD). The description of this product is:

Do more than touch up your roots – rescue them. Introducing the next generation in the root touch-up market that merges color with care and convenience. With a breakthrough applicator, guaranteed shade matching and a conditioning formula, covering grays and roots has never been so precise or easy. Just mix and color your way to seamless coverage – all in just 10 minutes. Featuring a unique conditioning low-ammonia formulation that rescues strands with a revolutionary, flow-through, self-contained root applicator brush, eliminate the mess associated with the standard at-home color bowl and brush. The ultra-caring color gel pampers every strand as it covers every root with seamless, shade matching color. Available in 12 shades.

What I think: I have dark brown hair that really shows the grays. My color is Dark Brown #4 and it matched perfectly with my hair color. Plus 10 minutes was just enough time to completely cover the grays while looking natural. The applicator brush worked pretty well, but it was kind of bulky and hard to get in the roots. I had to wriggle it in there. But since the coverage was great, it worked out okay in the end!

You can purchase this kit at drugstores and mass market retailers near you. Enjoy!
