Best Mascara – L’Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara  loreal-voluminous-butterfly-mascara-4-286x300

Best Beauty Tool – RevitaLash Advanced Lash Conditioner 2014-12-16 18.20.00 (480x161) 2014-12-16 18.20.26 (480x360)

If you have stubby lashes and want thick,  lush, dramatic lashes for miles, you MUST try RevitaLash Advanced Lash Conditioner.

2014-04-13-08.06.20-427x480

Dove’s ® Purely Pampering Pistachio Cream with Magnolia Body Wash is a luxurious shower experience at a drugstore price! It combines warm and spicy notes with floral fresh notes in a delicious lush scent. Is it weird that I can’t wait to take a shower like three times a day just to use Best body wash ever!!

Best Hair Tool – VOLOOM Hair Volumizing Iron 2014-11-30 05.45.13 (480x360)

If you want big, lush hair you NEED the VOLOOM Hair Volumizing Iron. I can honestly say after 50+ years of trying to bring the oomph to my hair, this is THE one product that got the job done AND it’s so easy and quick to use! Read my full review here.

Best Nail Polish  – ButterLONDON Steampunk Ball Collection  bl-steampunk-set   This collection has 5 out of 6 exclusive shades. It is full of beautiful and unique shades that wear well and a gorgeous top coat that works with all the other shades!

Best Skincare – TATCHA 2014-07-29-03.58.28-480x447

highly recommend you try TATCHA: the skincare has made a marked improvement in my skin and the Ritual Discovery Kit is a great way to try some of the best-selling products in the line or to take your skincare with you on your travels. The line is pricey, but honestly, EVERY item I’ve tried from TATCHA has dramatically improved the look and feel of my skin. It is amazing and PERFECT for over 40 women!! Read my review of the Ritual Discovery Kit here. 

Dr. Dennis Gross Age Defying Solutions Kit 2014-08-17 04.21.12 (480x385)

The kit combines the three anti-aging staples every over 40 woman needs in her skincare routine: exfoliation, brightening and hydration. These three products have made a huge difference in fading my brown spots and improving the texture of my skin. I feel very confident in recommending this kit and Dr. Dennis Gross products. Read my full review of all three products here.

Best Skincare Tool – Michael Todd Soniclear 2014-11-22-02.14.49-480x416 (1)

After just a few days of using the Soniclear and Charcoal Dextox cleanser, my skin feels smoother and after a few weeks, I swear my pores look smaller. I am extremely impressed with the Soniclear. It’s well made, smartly designed and highly effective.  If you want an efficient and powerful skincare system that will have your skin glowing in no time, get a Soniclear! Read my full review here.

Best Hair Care Products – Kerastase Couture Styling Products 2014-06-16-06.46.20-480x447

The Kérastase Couture Styling Collection is fabulous at adding texture and volume without adding stickiness, weight or damage. If you want volume I would recommend Forme Fatale Voluptuous Blow-Dry Gel and Lift Vertige  Root-Uplifting Gel  and you HAVE to try the Laque Dentelle Hairspray, you will never want to use anything else! And did I mention that all these products smell fantastic? My co-worker asked me what perfume I was wearing and I wasn’t wearing any, so she came to my desk, sniffed and declared “It’s your hair”! See my full review here.

BONUS: Best new line in 204 – Charlotte Tilbury 2014-08-06-08.57.39-480x360

Charlotte Tilbury burst upon the US in 2014 causing a huge stir n the beauty world.  Ms. Tilbury has designed a high-quality, high performance luxury makeup line I already adore. It is pricey, but the texture of the products, the ease of application and the final result are worth the splurge. This is a line that is ideal for over 40 women who want to look polished and sophisticated look. See reviews here and here.
