Best of #beauty – Hourglass, Cover FX and more

Best of beauty

Clockwise from top left:

Hourglass Vanish™ Seamless Finish Foundation Stick

A creamy stick foundation that serves as both a full-coverage foundation and concealer.  I like blending it with my Sigma 3DHD™ Kabuki Brush.

Cover FX Clear Cover Invisible Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Don’t like the whitish cast of many sunscreens? Then try Cover FX Clear Cover Invisible Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30.  This sunscreen goes on clear and has a serum-y consistency.

Touch in Sol No Poreblem Primer – press sample

An unbelievably silky face primer with a serum-y consistency from K-Beauty brand Touch in Soul

L.A. Colors 5-Color Matte Eyeshadow Palette

OK, so the eye shadows aren’t silky, but they have good pigmentation.  A bargain at USD $1.50.  Yep, you read that right: one dollar and fifty cents.  Like neutrals as much as I do? Then try Tan Khaki, Brown Tweed, or Natural Linen (shown).

Jane Iredale Daytime eyeshadow palette

The perfect neutral eyeshadow palette

NARS Audacious Lipstick in Jane

One swipe, and you’re done.  Jane (Fonda? Birken?) is described as “terracotta rose.”  The terracotta makes the rose less precious. For other terracotta faves, visit Meet the Lipstick Shade That’ll Replace Your Nudes This Fall.

Burt’s Bees Satin Lipstick

Burt’s Bees Satin Lipstick is every bit as good as luxury lipsticks (including NARS).  It’s a great value at USD 9.00. My lipstick wardrobe includes Burt Bee’s Satin Lipsticks in Ruby Ripple and Russet River.  Buy wherever Burt’s Bees are sold (and that’s practically everywhere).

IsaDora Eye Shadow Quartet in Muddy Nudes

Yes, I sprang for the IsaDora eye shadow palettes as soon as they became available on walgreens.com.  I am delighted with the smoothness and pigmentation of the eye shadow quartet and the subtle gradation of shades.

IsaDora returns to Walgreens

walgreens.com, that is. 😊

After an absence of nearly 10 years, Swedish beauty brand IsaDora is returning to the United States.

Walgreens had carried IsaDora at its stores until 2008. I wasn’t smitten by its displays and didn’t get into the products until Paula Begoun raved about IsaDora’s eye shadows.

Would you believe that I still have IsaDora’s eye shadow quartet in Bronzing Plums and its 5-pan eye shadow palette in Matte Chocolates?

You may shop IsaDora on walgreens.com beginning December 2017.

I’m a sucker for neutral eye shadow palettes, and when walgreens.com begins selling IsaDora, here’s what I’m going to buy:


IsaDora Eye Sculptor Bar in 20 Nude Sculpt

Here is how IsaDora describes its Eye Sculptor Bar:

An eye shadow palette including the perfect shade combinations for a sculpted eye make-up: 4 matt shades and 1 pearly highlighter.


IsaDora Eye Shadow Quartet in 44 Muddy Nudes

I’ve been looking for this palette for ages!

Probably the most tortuous reply I’ve received from an inquiry

The Swedish cosmetics brand IsaDora pulled out of the U.S. market, and Walgreens quit carrying it a number of years ago.  While initially I wasn’t enthused about IsaDora,  I gave it a second look after Paula Begoun raved about its eye shadows. I still have Isadora’s eye shadow quartet in Bronzing Plums and its eye shadow palette in Matte Chocolates.

Anyhow, I wrote to IsaDora, asking where I could its products in the U.S.  Here is its response, which is probably the most tortuous reply that I’ve received from an inquiry:
