Black Radiance Artisan Color Baked Blush – Despite my usual optimism and sunny disposition (I’m just sayin), I’d pretty much given up on the quest to find us brown gals any decent cheek colors at the drugstore. But thennnn, on a recent haul, I saw these beauties. Hello, gorgeous. Black Radiance’s Baked Artisan blushes deliver smooth, luminous, color that naturally warm the face. “Toasted Almond” (above right) is the bee’s knees, okay? It looks great on every one!

    I became a cosmetic snob once I thought I had “made it” but then when I got laid off and used up all my unemployment benefits……..I ate a HUGE piece of humble pie.

    I replaced $60 Dior Nude liquid foundation with Maybellines $8 dollah Dream Liquid Mousse. Coverage is great and I have money left over to try their Dream Nude Airfoam which is great for a very quick application (stay @ home mom w/toddler).

    I have yet to find a cheap foundation primer but the RoC Brilliance is ok.

    I too have fallen n love with Black Radiance products. The quality is amazing.

    I love St Ives apricot scrub and duo eyelash glue.

    Whaaat…no Milani products made the cut. Also, Revlons new lip butter line is amazing.

  • The Antifash

    Great list! There are definitely some products listed that I will be checking for in the near future!

    Yea, that St. Ives Apricot scrub is good and I like the smell, but I experienced the same thing years ago when I used to use it. I always rinsed well, yet I always managed to find some grit on my body 20 minutes later.
