Love this powder foundation....goes really well with my Chanel Matte Lumiere liquid foundation. Great coverage...doesn't feel too heavy and most importantly doesn't break me out. I also like how I could just apply a wet sponge to get a heavier coverage but I usually only use this to set my liquid foundation. I actually like the smell it isn't so overbearing but I can see how it can irritate some people.
Liquid -Chanel - Mat Lumiere Long Lasting Luminous Matte Fluid Makeup SPF 15

Love that this package comes with a pump. Not a great color selection for darker skin women but luckily enough for me the 120 walnut matches my skin tone. ( I think there is only two for darker skin complexion folks) Very sheer feeling but gives a good amount coverage ( still need concealer if have acne scars). Doesn't feel heavy on the skin...like I don't really notice that I am wearing it at times. seriously, unlike MAc studio fix fluid my skin can breathe but I don't really like how after a while you can have a yellow cast. Long lasting....dries pretty quickly....expensive but I like it.
Okay product...something that can use for a smokey day look, school or work events. Love the fact that it's shimmer and not a lot of sparkly clumps in collection. Eyeshadow blend well with each other, good pigmentation....good color range. Not a big fan of the matte eyeshadow but that is just my preference....I don't like matte shadows that much. Personally, I think this palette is over-hyped...not the 2nd coming to christ but the price is great and a good starter palette for those just getting into makeup.
I brought this foundation two days ago b/c of the reviews that I read on this board and I just didn't have a lot of dough to buy MAC. Plus, lately, MAC studio fix have been getting on my nerves. Plus, I was just getting tired of MAC and I wanted to try something new for a change. Pros: Color matches my skin exactly. I got earth 2...which corresponds pretty well with MAC NW43. The foundations last all day...it doesn't fatigue and it actually looks good as the day wore on. I have really really oily skin and so far my skin wasn't shining and the makeup didn't rub off of my face. Cons: I have never used a stick foundation before so it took some time to get used to. I have just being using this for two days but I don't know if there is anything seriously wrong with the foundation yet. I give you an update later on if there was something seriously wrong.
I love this perfume. It is very fresh and sweet. The perfume doesn't last a long time but I don't mind it. It is a type of perfume that you can wear to the office and wear at night at the club or a night out at the town. It's really nice and sweet.
I hate the smell. It was so gross and nauseating....I don't know why so many people are raving about this perfume. It is way way way to strong and horrible. Would not recommand this to anyone.
I love this perfume. I wear this perfume on a daily basis b/c it is so fresh and sexy. I also like how the odor is faint but very strong and it lasts for a very long time. I love this perfume. Will always be a part of my perfume drawer. Will totally recommend this perfume.
I love this concealer. I have a lot of acne scores and this product makes them disappear temporarily. The only problem is that for oil scene it doesn't cover as well...you need to pile on more than you should. I use a brush to blend the concealer into my skin b/c I don't like adding something straight from the tube to my face. IMHO....I would totally would recommended to product to anyone who would be interested in it b/c it does it main purpose...cover unsightly scars, marks, brushes, and skin discolorations.

I have oily/acne prone skin. So, it is kind of difficult to find a decent product. I really like how the product provides some sun protection and I really like how they provide a lot for the price. I just doen't like how it is extremly oil....doesn't absorb quickly...and in my opinion feels like it just sits on my face. This product has made my tzone more shiny BUT I haven't had terrible breakouts with this product. The only way I would use this product again if someone gave it to me as a gift or if there was an extreme mark-down on teh price.
Cons: Packaging. I wish the neck of the bottle would be more narrower b/c the shape of it now makes it easy to waste a lot of product. Pros: Everything else. I love the smell. I love how it doesn't make leave my skin dry. My skin looks clearer now that I have used it in conjunction with the other products that I like. I love how it actually retains some of the moisture in my face after I wash my face. I just love it.
This cream is absolutely the best. It truly and I mean truly removes every trace of makeup on your face. It removes every trace of dirt and other crap that can be collected on a person face throughout the day. I have acne prone skin, so after I use this product I usually use phisoderm and let me tell you my skin looks much much better. I also love how the smell isn't too strong and I love how it isnt too oily. I simply love it and totally recommand it.
Simply terrible. Doesn't provide any coverage and doesn't last long in the sun. makes my face look like I died or about to die. For some reason this foundation caused me to break out around my Tzone and it made my face extremly oily. My forehead was way to shiny for its own good. This foundation Doesn't even match my skin color and therefore makes me look terrible. Not worth its money can get better foundations at cheaper prices. When people look at my photos when i am wearing this they are constantly asking me why does my face look ashy or simply pale. It just goes to show you that this foundation is truly not photogenic.
The foundation gives great coverage but it makes you look like you have pancake face if you only use a little of the product. It also fade very quickly and don't botther going into the sun with it or it will cause your makeup to melt like within seconds. I suggest using some on applicator other than the spong that they provide b/c this thing goes on way to thick. I would buy again b/c it provides the best coverage and doesn't really cause me to breakout.
I am using NW43. I really love this foundation. It goes well with my skin tone, doesn't cause me to break out, come on really natural, and doesn't fade as quickly as the studio tech. I think it is worth the price and will most def buy it again. For best coverage....don't use the sponge that they give you...get some kind of thick brush b/c it makes it go on light and even.

I love the lipgloss. I love the feel of it and I love how it isn't too gooey, sticky, or to liquidly. It's totally worth it the money. I also like how the raison glaze reflects the sunlight.
