Guest Post of the Week, as chosen by Phyrra - I'm obsessed with Blake Lively and I love my friend Ange's Age of Adaline look! You need to check it out!


  1. G, can't wait for your HC Glamoflauge review as that is my current obsession right now. You originally got me hooked on the CG 3-in-1 foundation, but I think the HC has dethroned that. I mean I loved, loved, loved the CG but the HC foundation is equally amazing. And since it is a lot cheaper, I think I'm switching for good.
    Haven't seen/heard of the Jordana one you mention. Anticipating that review as well! ;)

  2. I'm in love with HC too! Got it after seeing it in a haul somewhere on YouTube and it's amazing. I do have to make sure my skin is *moisturized* but it's legit the best color match I've ever had. Looking forward to reading your thoughts!

  3. Can't wait for your reviews, G! It was one of your older reviews for Cover Girl's Tone Rehab foundation that persuaded me to try it. I'm very happy with its performance; in fact, it seems to look better and better throughout the day. Provides a nice canvas for my other makeup by covering redness and other imperfections. Kind of expensive, but I had a $1.50 coupon and there was a BOGO 1/2 off sale. on top of that, the purchase went towards earning a $9.00 mPerks reward at Meijer.

  4. Recently purchased UD Naked Skin foundation, and so far I'm really liking it.

  5. I'm excited for these reviews! You got me hooked on the Covergirl 3 in 1 but I'm sure these are cheaper so I'll be glad to switch if you guys like them so much! :)

  6. Wore this for years... PF mineral wear powder as foundation.

    Then I saw this... CG ready set gorgeous liquid foundation (color 110), used with the concealer and ELF small stopping brush. I really like it a lot. Just the right amount of coverage, looks natural.
