GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) – You might’ve seen some of Tim and Carrie Cooney’s pictures around in local galleries… The couple has hiked all of Colorado’s 13 and 14ers and has an amazing portfolio to show for it.
Tim and Carrie Cooney have summited over 800 peaks in the 40 years they’ve been climbing. When Tim was put out of work at 62, he knew it was going to be difficult to begin another career. He and his wife asked themselves: how could they make money doing what they love? That’s when they began to focus on their photography.
“Sometimes, when you’re doing some of these peaks and you’re looking at them and thinking to yourself, “That looks impossible, how in the world are we going to get to that summit because we don’t perceive a route?” We’ve found that if we just have the faith to stick with it, a route always opens up,” says Tim Cooney.
It’s this persistence that allows them to share the beauty they experience with others; no hiking shoes needed.
The Cooneys photographs are all available for sale; if you can’t make it to a craft show around the valley, you can check them out online at https://www.highestgroundphotography.com/ .
Chanel Golden Light Baume Essentiel ($45.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a light copper with moderate, warm undertones paired with a glossy finish with subtle pearl. It has an emollient, wetter feel that leaves behind a shinier, glossier finish that doesn’t fully set or dry down, though it doesn’t slide around (surprisingly). The balmy quality seems to give it better spreadability, especially over base products, as I didn’t struggle with it lifting up complexion products.
It worked well applied directly from the tube, patted on with fingertips, or using a synthetic brush, though I prefer fingertip application myself as it gave the control I wanted without lifting up base products (and faster and easier to clean than a brush). It had sheer coverage, which was as expected, that gave a dewy finish with a hint of pearl but very little color (someone fairer might see more color and someone deeper might get more of a highlighting effect). There was still a distinctive glossiness to my cheeks after eight hours of wear, and it was only just barely starting to migrate/move at that point.
The product didn’t wear as well on eyes as it slipped around and creased quickly, though it was lightweight enough that I didn’t feel like I had a glossy balm on my lids. It worked better dabbed below the brow bone to add shine without worrying about the product gathering in my fine lines. As a lip product, it was very lightweight with subtle shine but as one might expect with a multi-tasking product but doesn’t feel as comfortable nor as long-wearing (two hours at best) as a traditional lip balm or a lip gloss.
