i only bought tjis because of the reviews on the website but now im so glad i did.my skin is going through a really bad time after having kids my skin has become hormonal acne type and has made me really depressed lately but thanks to clairette and retin a they have qorked wonders my skin is looking almost as good as before except few blemishes left i dont like heavy coverage look i just like my skin to look flawless with a healthy eventone glow.i normally use mac or chanel and various others but i will not go back to them again unless i get bored of this which i dont think is possibble .my skin has been reacting to anything so foundation was an issue.this powder is just fav no spots itching irritation nothing just great natural looking skin with a healthy glow im really pleased i am mac nc42 chanel naturel so rich vanilla is perrrfect its fab shade is excellent for my yellow undertones will buy again.

i have dark brown hair and my hair is thick and also colured with permanent hair dye i am always using heating tools on my hair so my hair has been going through very dry rough time. i have used LOTS OF HAIR BRAND NAMES IE KERASTASE SEBASTIAN AND REDKEN ARE MY FAVES. i read reviews on this product on on here so thought id give it a try as im always looking for something better no matter what the price if it works then im happy.have been using for 2 weeks and can honestly say i am very pleased with this i wasnt getting the amount right at first as it is very concentrated.even though my hair is thick i still only need on drop.if u use anymore it will get greasy.has made a very big difference to my hair it does not get flyaway or frizzy in rain or humidity so those are my main concerns.also is tangle free and looks healthy. i will deffo buy again but such a huige bottle will last me ages.my best haircare product at the moment,
Tinted Moisturizer -Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20
smiley07 3/29/2008 3:26:00 PM
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer - Oil Free is a buildable foundation that can be worn by all skin types but especially those with acne prone, sensitive or oily skin. The sheer, lightweight formula helps control oil breakthrough while providing hydration to prevent dryness and offers further protection from UVA and UVB rays with an SPF 20. I would buy shade ALMOND I AM NC42/40 Perfect for troubled skin. Porcelain: for very fair skin tones Nude: light beige/for fair to light skin tones Sand: for light to medium skin tones Fawn: for medium skin with pink tones Almond: rich brown/for medium skin tones Tan: medium to dark skin tones Walnut: for rich, deep skin tones
This is one of my HG products.i have medium skin tone with yellow undertones so i use shade NC42 IN THE LIQUID.if it helps i use shade pebble in double wear by eatee lauder.shade 50 naturel VITALUMIERE LIQUID by CHANEL. 6.5 IN armani.THIS IS PERFECT SHADE I USE THIS MORE ON OCCASSIONS SOMETIMES EVERYDAY WHEN I WANT TO LOOK MY BEST WITHOUT FAIL IT ALWAYS MAKES MY SLIGHTLY BLEMISH PRONE COMBINATION SKIN LOOK FLAWLESS .IT DOES NOT RUB OFF LAST FOR HOURS HOWEVER I TOUCH WITH MY BLOT POWDER IN MEDIUM SHADE BY MAC ABOUT TWICE IF ITS A PARTY OR OCCASSION.I APPLY THIS WITH WITH A SLIGHTLY DAMP SPONGE WHICH IS DAMPENED BY LUSH TEA TREE TONER OR DERMALICA MULTI ACTIVE TONER THEN USING THESE MAKES MY SKIN LOOK POLISHED AND FOUNDATION GOES ON GREAT.iF I WEAR everyday then i mix abit with my everyday moisturiser total effects by olay with spf15 or mac prep prime spf50.they work excellent with this foundation to give my skin lighter evn toned look when i wear light . all the best girls is a good worth the money product to buy.I think this would suit more oily or combination or normal skins.
I bought this foundation because my skin was going through breakout for a couple of months and had few blemishes left and i needed a foundatio that was going to give me good coverage. in mac foundations i normally use studio fix fluid in shade nc42 or studio tech in shade nc40.therefore the lady in london at MAC said nearest shade to this skin colour is only one shade which is c40.The shade is perfect when i applied the foundation has a slight sweet smell .I applied with sponge first time and yes it gives excellent coverage you have to be very careful of how much of this stuff u apply as alittle goes a long way.it makes my skin look flAWless and is definitely worth it if u want really good full coverage. Ijust didnt feel comfortable wearing the foundation even though i use laura mercier primer beauty flash balm or mac primer.i just felt i had alot on my face even though it looked great on it just felt slightly heavy to me. would definte;y reccommend to anyone who wants full coverage but slightly heavy feel.i havent used a better full coverage foundation than this.Other foundations i have used and reccommend .....Laura mercier silk creme foundation if u r the shades i stated then u will need shade cashew beige also armani in 6.5 .i am going to stick to my studio fix fluid at the moment when i need fuller coverage but for everyday use i havent found anything that can beat CHANEL VITALUMIERE LIQUID IN SHADE NATUREL 50 IF U ARE ABOVE SHADES.IT GIVES MY SKIN GOOD COVERAGE AND CANT NOITCE PORES.jUST MY SKIN LOOKS POLISHED AND HEALTHY . I AM EDITING THIS REVIEW ...as after a wedding recently i noticed in pictuyres i wouldnt ever wear this foundation again as i returned it my pores got clogged and looked tad grey on my face i have yellow undertones but if u go to a mac counter then have it tried on u would be better

smiley07 11/30/2007 12:07:00 PM
I have used various hair products and always looking for something better for my hair.i dont mind paying alot for a product if it works.i have coloured hair (dark chocolate brown ) and i use heat styling products alot. The products i normally use are kerastase sebastian tigi phillip kingsley and urban retreat .i bought this product 2 months ago and use about 20p to 50p size amount on the back of my hair ends but not at the front of my hair .i also use sebastian evocotive nudist product together with this.if i dont use both these products my hair is still dry and tangles quickly using this product it is always tangle free and doesnt feel at all like i have used loads of heat styling products. i am very happy with this product in fact i am very fussy if i dont like anything i use i just leave in cupboard and i can say this is one of 3 products i use which i could not live without now.My ends do not go rough and dry with this and my hair always looks conditioned and well groomed and tangle free....i will definitely use this product until or if i find something better EXCELLENT PRODUCT.However i wouldnt use at the top or front of my hair because my hair seems to feel greasy and too heavy if i apply there must be for drier areas EXCELLENT 10/10. GO BUY
Moisturizers -Desert Essence - Jojoba Oil - 100% pure
smiley07 10/29/2007 8:37:00 AM
Have been using this organic jojoba oil for approx 3 months now. I do not use every single night but alternate nights.My skin definately looks more luminous and smoother using this.I have slightly blemish prone skin and it can break out now and again but this oil has never yet made my skin breakout.at first i was using every night i felt my t zone area was slightly greasier than before so i do alternate nights now.Before applying this oil i always tone my skin with rosewater or tea tree toner by lush they are excleent products to use i feel my skin is alot smoother if i tone properly before applying this .Would definitely reccommend to other and i would say it is suitable for ALL SKIN TYPES.I have combination skin and can be sensitive to some products so im really pleased with this.I sometimes mix this with bit of bio oil if my skin looks really dull because of my underactive thyroid so when i wake up in morning it always looks lumious and healthy.
