Top 3 Beauty Products For Women Over 50
Glossy magazines and TV commercials are full of flawless faces, promoting the beauty industry's newest makeup trends. But what about the older generation?
For years I was doing a daily full-face of makeup and aiming for impossible-to-accomplish looks, investing in tons of products in the process. Now that I’ve matured I’ve grown to love a more natural look which means goodbye heavy foundation and gaudy lip colors.
However, I’ve reached a point where I’m just frustrated with myself and my wrinkles. I don’t want to pile products to make them go away but I’m not confident yet with a bare face. After reaching out to my friends who are at the same age, they told me to try Thrive Causemetics. The vegan make-up brand offers high-quality products for all ages and skin types.
They specifically recommended three products that they swore would be my new essentials: Thrive Causemetics’ Brilliant Eye Brightener™, Buildable Blur™ CC Cream, and Infinity Waterproof Eyebrow Liner™.
Here’s my honest review:
1. Brilliant Eye Brightener™
What it is: A water-proof cream to powder highlighter stick for the eyes, made with macadamia and meadowfoam seed oil to deliver skin-balancing hydration. Plus, it's 100% vegan and cruelty-free!
What it does: Awakens the eyes by adding a soft shimmering color that makes your eyes look brighter while hydrating and firming the sensitive skin around them. Its Ring Light Technology™ provides a diffused glow that gives tired skin the look of an eye-lift.
My Thoughts: What makes the Eye Brightener so brilliant is its super easy application. It glides on smoothly across your lids, below the brow bone, and the inner and outer corners of the eyes. It takes me a matter of minutes to apply and it lasts the whole day.
The Brilliant Eye Brightener™ comes in 10 different shades and is made with thoughtful, high-quality ingredients. The unique formula with antioxidants and hydrating oils smoothes the skin's texture and fine lines. Now I’m not only getting a touch of color for my eyes but also feeling the hydration around such a delicate area!
2. Buildable Blur™ CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 35
What it is: A multitasking color-correcting cream that acts like a light foundation, perfect for aging skin. Made with Vitamin C to help brighten and even out skin tone while providing powerful antioxidant protection against environmental factors.
What it does: Instantly blurs and diffuses skin imperfections, protects skin against sun damage, and gives it the moisture it needs to look healthier and younger. The Buildable Blur™ CC Cream smoothes the look of fine lines, texture, dark spots, and pores, providing a naturally flawless finish.
My Thoughts: This lightweight CC cream is powered by Thrive Causemetics’ Blur Effect Technology™ and Smart Pigment Technology™ that visibly diminish redness and discoloration while adjusting to my skin tone. It's available in 18 inclusive shades, so finding my perfect match was easier than ever before.
In recent years I’ve been extra aware of sun damage and was always looking for ways to incorporate SPF into my routine. That’s why this CC cream is just right with light-to-full coverage, broad-spectrum SPF 35 protection, as well as its makeup and skincare hybrid formula that treats, moisturizes, brightens, protects, and color corrects skin - all at once!
3. Infinity Waterproof Eyebrow Liner™
What it is: A semi-permanent, smudge-proof, no-budge, water-proof eyebrow liner for all-day wear. Made with shea butter, hyaluronic acid, and ceramides that encourage the growth of healthier and fuller brows.
What it does: Designed with a built-in spoolie brush, a unique Semi-Permanent Micro pigment Technology™and Buildable Smart Pigment Technology™, Thrive Causemetics’ Eyebrow Liner glides on smoothly, lifts brows, and matches hair color perfectly.
My Thoughts: The Infinity Waterproof Eyebrow Liner™ is truly a must-have. It comes in 5 different shades and is perfect for everyday wear.
Its design makes it easy to draw a clean line along the base of your brow. The spoolie brush helped me define and blend the color and evenly distribute it along the brow. It gave my eyes the look of an instant lift and filled sparse (overplucked) areas.
Ever since I’ve gone a bit greyer it’s been a struggle to find an eyebrow pencil that matches. Thankfully, Thrive Causemetics’ Nan (Light - Dark Grey) shade was an amazing pairing. Now I feel more confident rocking my natural color and know that I can accentuate my brows in a fuller, softer, natural way.
Thrive Causemetics offers makeup must-haves for all ages at an affordable price. But what makes Thrive Causemetics even more remarkable is that for every product purchased they donate to help women thrive.
I can honestly say that Thrive Causemetics has helped my makeup evolve with me. I’ve never felt so confident and beautiful, knowing that my cosmetics are doing more for my skin. Now, I embrace the fact that I’m aging, rather than trying to run away from it. We’re all beautiful - no matter what age!
