Over 40 Beauty: L’Oreal Lumi Cushion Foundation Review


A few months ago, L’Oreal sent me a box with three shades of the True Match Lumi Cushion foundation. Two were far too dark for my skintone, but the third, N3.5 Classic Buff I decided to try. One of the popular cosmetic trends from South Korea is cushion foundations and BB creams, and L’Oreal jumped on this bandwagon before most drugstore brands. This is a larger thick compact in white…

My Favorite Over 40 Fashion Blogs

Blogging Fashion By Decade

After my post about MORE Magazine I started thinking about the inspiration I find on the Internet. While I don’t think blogs are a worthy replacement to a quality magazine, I find my regular style inspiration comes from my peers. Inspiration doesn’t have to come from someone your same age, but as we age our tastes do change and it’s wonderful to see fellow women on the other side of…

The End of More Magazine – What Went Wrong?

Blogging Entertainment Fashion By Decade

Last week, MORE Magazine shuttered after almost two decades. Claiming the 2008 recession and advertising challenges in the luxury marketplace, Meredith Corp. ended this publication, laying off around 30 individuals. Over the years, More has changed its demographic to appeal to women in their 30s as well as those over 40, and also made a switch to target a more affluent female audience.

Ask Allie: Personal Style with a Health Condition

Fashion Advice Fashion By Decade

I have multiple health conditions which make dressing nicely difficult. The two hardest are that 1. I can't wear pants (or tights!) of any type and 2. I can only wear a few “comfort” shoes. Mainly Algeria Palomas. I can get by with some cute Merrell flats or Uggs for a very short time, if I'm not going to be on my feet much. That's literally it for footwear. I…

#ThisIs40: I Didn’t Wake Up Like This

Beauty Fashion By Decade

I was sent a line of products to review (stay tuned for the post), and this time had the smarts to take a “before” photo. I applied my first use of the product, turned the camera to face me on my phone, and shot a picture. Wow. That's a tough sight to see before my first cup of coffee… but it's reality.  I moved on to my dressing table to,…

Ask Allie: Starch-Free Corporate Capsule Wardrobe

Capsule Wardrobes Corporate Fashion Fashion Advice

Hi Alison – I love your blog and visit daily! Your capsule wardrobes are what really drew me in. The ability to mix-and-match separates to create versatile outfits is such a plus, and something I'd like to ask about. You see, I'm considering starting my own business, and will need professional attire. But, I hate suits and suiting material. Starchy button down shirts make me squirm. My wardrobe is built…
