Love this product! It gives me the perfect highlight in the center of my eyes and browbone. Smashbox highlighters of any form really work for me. I think they've got it down in highlighting skills. One stick of this has lasted me for years, if I ever use it all I will repurchase.
Used this for years now! Hate to be without it. I cannot wash my hair too frequently without drying it out. So I don't and this is my hands down favorite dry shampoo. It works. The best way I've found is to flip my head over, spray all the roots, massage in, let sit and then brush out w/boar bristle brush. I do hate that the cans run around $8 here and that they don't last too long for me. I should probably find an online source that would give me some discount bulk case price or something. I seriously can't stand to leave my hair unwashed when I don't have a can of this on hand.
Great product, this is the second time I've purchased the entire pink line from Kerastase - when they discontinued Bain Satin 3, I figured I'd try this. I am impressed. I have long highlighted hair and using this line does make my highlights look fabulous. Love the smell. For me using Kerastase is worth the money in the long run. I used to buy hair products on a weekly basis trying to find ones I like, usually desperate because my hair was such a mess. Now I've been using Kerastase for a long time and the healthy hair and time saved on endless searches makes the $ well spent
Powders -Smashbox - Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder

OK I admit I am a HUGE Smasbox fan and this product is one of their best. Since I love Smashbox so much, I tend to use all their products, from primer on and I do think that they work best in conjunction. Whenever I use all the products in the flawless skin kit I end up with flawless skin. And my skin is not good on its own! I love that this powder does NOT give me that powdery look and it feels good on my skin. It does blur all my aging signs - wrinkles, discolorations and all that stuff! It gives an excellent flawless finish for me. LOVE!
Bronzers -Guerlain - Terracotta Healthy Glow Foundation - Second Skin Effect

I do like this product a lot but I find it a little too bronzy/rosy for my liking. I think I like my bronze more brown than terracotta. But great product that wears great. april 2012~ this product has grown on me so much that I have repurchased I guess I had to get used to it but it is now a go-to. I've received many compliments when wearing it and definitely miss it on days I don't wear it..I catch glimpses of myself in the mirror and realize how blah I look without it.
Well, I don't know what I expect for about $1 but the handle fell off on the 3rd use. Couldn't they super glue it before selling it? Sure I can super glue it back together but just would rather fork out more money on reliable brushes that don't break in mid-use.
I agree with below reviewer, possibly because I do have yellowish/warm understones and this color didn't do much for me. Looks like a nice one to have in the pot but just not on me.
Loose Powders -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Loose Powder
Karin1539 11/4/2011 10:22:00 PM
I think this makes my face look softer right after I put it on but I'm so-so on the lasting power. Even when I check my face a few minutes after applying this I just don't see any great effect. I don't think I will be hunting this one out to repurchase if I run out. So far my favorite loose powder is Smashbox Halo.
Liquid -Guerlain - Parure Aqua Fluid Foundation SPF 20
Karin1539 11/4/2011 10:15:00 PM
Love this product! I have been using Parure Gold but now that it is not summer I had to switch to a lighter shade. I tried this stuff and love it even more. So far I am so, so impressed with Guerlain foundations I can't imagine using anything else. The finish is amazing, a little goes a long way and they are supposed to be good for the skin. I think they are as I noticed an improvement in my skin over the summer using Parure Gold and I hadn't changed my routine, only my foundation.
I am surprised I like this as much as I do and do believe I will most likely repurchase. It really does keep my hair color looking very nice, not drying but it cleans my hair well. I use it after the first coloring and then alternate with normal shampoo. By the time my next hair appt my hair color still looks great. For reference - my hair is long/fine/highlighted/prone to brassiness, frizziness and split ends. I find this stuff to be oddly non-scented.
I'm big on lip primers and get annoyed with ones that dry the lips. This one is not drying but is nothing spectacular either. It didn't seem to help keep my beautiful Guerlain lipstick on so well nor did it "lift" or otherwise improve the look of my lips. As far as repurchasing, eh.
Great product, very moisturizing. I use it after showering at night and that is the only time I use it but it has kept my lips in great shape. No annoying peeling/dry lips since I've been using this. Love it!
This was my first Korres shower gel and I love it. I find it very moisturizing. The scent does not bother me at all. I use this in conjunction with the body and lip butters and my skin stays in great condition when I use these. I find them all moisturizing without being greasy at all. Love them and will repurchase. The set sold on HSN ends up being a great value.
I bought this a three piece set off HSN and love it. It really does leave skin looking glowing and healthy. I usually have dry patches and rough looking knees/elbows but using this right after showering with the matching body wash has gotten rid of all dry skin. This summer my skin has never looked better. I'm going to repurchase the set as I love all three products.
BB Cream -MISSHA - M Signature Real Complete B.B. Cream SPF 25 PA++
Karin1539 8/20/2011 8:00:00 PM
This is my first bb purchase - I purchased this from Missha website and received a free sample box with the purchase with three bb creams and their remover. I was very impressed with the value and their service. And so far I love all their products. I have these brown spots on my face that drive me nuts and these help to cover them as well as add SPF protection to prevent them from getting worse. Used and blended correctly this product goes a long way in producing a flawless looking face. I will definitely be repurchasing!
