Hanes Fall Hosiery/Tights Preview

With Fall officially arriving tonight  , it seems a good time to take a look at a cool weather staple- tights.

A great pair of tights can boost an outfit  and add a little extra style as well as keep legs warm  and Hanes has some fun patterns as well as simple but never basic black .

In their Silk Reflections Fashion Tights category there are many patterns including these fun leopard print ones. These are a lightweight tight  with a control top .  Also new are square dots , which I think are super pretty . Dots add a little feminine look to any outfit.   For dressy nights out the Embellished Backseam have a row of amber  rhinestones down the back. They give me such an '80s vibe .  You can find more styles at

All the fashion tights run to size EF .

If you're looking for  a great black,  Silk Reflections Luxe Sheer Tights cover your gams with a sleek semi opaque look and come in Same to Waist Panty or High Waist Control Top. For those who are plus size, these go up to size IJ.

All are available now  and are priced $ 11-12 but sales are out there. Kohl's or Macy's might be a good choice as you can use their  coupons .

Algenist Genius Face & Eye Cream Duo- QVC TSV

I've become quite the fan of Algenist skincare in the last couple years . I used their Genius cream much of last winter and once cooler weather sets in and my skin is less oily , I'll bring it back into the rotation.

New to the Genius line is an eye cream that I can't wait to try. I should have a review up in the next week or so.

CK One All Day Face Perfection Makeup SPF 20

All Day Face Perfection sounds like a good thing, right ? That's the  name of the new foundation from CK One  and it delivers.

Full name  All Day Face Perfection Makeup SPF 20  is a medium-  full  coverage foundation. It is a thick formula out of the bottle but once on feels very light and blends in  easily and seamlessly . It gives a nicely smoothed look to skin and has a semi matte finish. Not dry but not dewy either.

It covers imperfections and spots well and has an advanced polymer in there to help  hold pigments in place  for long wear along with vitamin E for hydration. The SPF is  Titanium Dioxide 4.95%, Octinoxate 3.0% .

This has worked well on my  oilier skin and I gave it to The Mom to try on her more normal skin .  She really likes it and may just keep the bottle.

Ck One  All Day Face Perfection Makeup SPF 20  comes in 8 shades  and is  $ 30 exclusively at  Ulta.

Shade shown is 300 Sand.
