I hate this. After a few hours of wearing it looks horrible, the colour fades but the shimmer remains and looks grainy.
It's funny how people are saying this concealer is thick, because mine is super runny! Even when I shake it before using a bunch of oil come out and the product gets everywhere. The coverage is great for about 20 minute and then it sinks into my skin and leaves it looking really dry and scaly.
This smells disgusting!! Why anyone would want to smell like old plastic is beyond me...
Makeup Brushes -Ecotools - Bamboo Foundation Brush

I liked this brush at first, but once I washed it it started to shed like crazy! It falls apart when I use it for foundation, so now I just use it to apply face masks and once more bristles fall out I'll just throw it out.
I honestly don't think this does anything... I wore it on one side of my face (under my foundation) and by the end of the day you couldn't see a difference between the side of my face with primer and the side without. It stung a bit when I put it on too.

I love the weight of this moisturizer, it isn't greasy at all and sinks right in leaving my skin hydrated and comfortable. Unfortunately, if I use this every day it makes me break out. I'm trying to alternate it with Complex 15 now so I can finish the bottle but I probably won't buy it again.
This pinky-peach-nude colour looks the same on the lips as it does in the pan. It's very sheer though and smells a bit plastic-y
In the pan it looks like a deep rich brownish-pink but it goes on sheer and orange :(
The colour itself is ok, but it's very sheer and hard to build up.
I'm not impressed with this eyeshadow. It's powdery and has a lot of fallout, and doesn't go on pink at all. At best it's a weak gold glitter that doesn't stay on for long.
Cleansers -Avene - Cleanance soapless gel cleanser for oily skin

My dermatologist recommended that I buy this, because I have oily/acne-prone skin. I actually like this product, despite the fact that it doesn't smell very nice. It does a good job of removing oil and dirt from my skin, and doesn't make me break out more than usual. I only use it once a day though, otherwise it can be too drying. My preference is to use it at the end of the day, after I've taken my makeup off with a cleansing oil.
I bought this cream after I began my acne treatment program. The prescription products were making my skin hurt, so I bought this because the box said "hydrating, soothing adjunctive care to anti-acne treatments" Unfortunately, this product barely moisturizes and it makes my face look and feel greasy. It does make my skin feel a little more comfortable, but I find that my Complex 15 lotion does a better job.
Treatments (Eye) -Avene - Soothing Eye Contour Cream

This eye "cream" is very, very, light. I like it because it soothes my skin, adds a bit of moisture and doesn't have any scent. This would not do anything for wrinkles or dark circles though.
Foundations -The Body Shop - Nature's Minerals Foundation

This product is a complete waste of money. I bought it after hearing so much hype about mineral makeup, and I thought it would be better for my skin. As others have mentioned, it gives no coverage whatsoever. It's completely invisible on me, and does not help with controlling shine. It's totally pointless. I tried it a few months after I bought it (my own fault) so I couldn't return it. What a waste of money. Can't even use it as a setting powder because it makes me break out with little bumps over my chin :( 1 lippie for SPF I guess...
I tried a sample of this product recently. The coverage is ok... but I really can't stand the smell! The fumes burn my eyes too. I won't purchase this :( -- EDIT Nov.2012 -- Ok, so I still don't like the smell of this... but I tried a new sample from MAC and it didn't bother my eyes this time. Maybe the sample I had before was old? Anyhow, now I love this foundation. I bought a full bottle of it (don't love the packaging of the product though). The colour is perfect for me and it's not greasy at all.
