Over 40 Beauty: Rodan + Fields Lash Boost Review

Beauty

I’ve never had long lashes. My sister is the one who got the lashes; she complains of them bumping against her sunglasses while I’ve spent my adulthood searching for the best products to curl, lengthen, and volumize. As I have gotten older, my lashes have become thinner and shorter. I’ve tried fiber mascaras, lash primers, lengthening mascaras, volumizing mascaras.

Beauty

A spin-off from the blog Into the Gloss, Glossier is a line of beauty products created by beauty editors with a focus on skincare and makeup being optional.

Over 40 Beauty Review: Perricone MD No Makeup Makeup Line

Beauty

The older I get, the less obvious I want my makeup. Sure I’ll rock a bold lip, but I find a heavily-made face emphasizes the negative and hides the positive. So when I heard about Perricone MD’s No Makeup Makeup line I was intrigued. Products that will make you look polished without looking too done? Items that let your natural glow without your veins, ruddiness, and dark circles? When I…
