So now that all the companies have come out with these (tinted moisturizer + sunscreen) what are your favorites in drugstore brands? I like only a lite cover for going out, and not all over the face. Given up on foundations, as I can't use them up fast, too many colors to choose, and don't like feeling plastered.

I've tried Cover Girl, which didn't seem to do a whole lot.

My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 10, and I've been sewing ever since.

I have always disliked putting "goop" on my face, but I realize the need for a moisturizer. I've bought the Garnier B&B which I see didn't make this list. It was rated pretty highly on another review list or I would not have bought it. It's pretty thick and I rarely use it because it feels pretty heavy to me, like stage makeup. However, it does have staying power. I put it on this morning because I anticipated an afternoon outdoors. 13 hours later, it's still there and doing a decent job. My skin feels moist and looks a lot smoother than a 50+ solar-phobe has any right asking for.

Measure twice, cut once. While this saying is useful in many ways, I have no qualms about editing my posts.

UFOs completed in 2014: 1 - woohoo! finished my oldest UFO - an apron cut out in the mid-80s with a pattern from the mid-40s! and the bias binding promptly disintegrated in the wash! Ok, it was from my Great-Grandmother's stash, which means it was bought anytime from the 1910's to 1970's.
Projects started recently completed in 2014: 4
New Projects started in 2014: 5
Stash:
sewn in 2014: 5
bought in 2014: 17.25

I know...I'm procrastinating.
