I got a free trial size of this when buying the Nude Replenishing Night Oil (which I love), but I must say this product seems completely overpriced and "miracle" is certainly an overstatement. On my face, this just provides a bit of moisture but makes no visable difference at all...It´s pretty much like an average aloe vera mask (it smells like aloe vera too, in my opinion). Not a bad product but doesn´t live up to expectations at all, the price is shameless.

This is a wonderful overnight or wintertime treatment for my sensitive combination skin, it smells luxurious, absorbs well and gives me a glowing complexion. Whenever I feel my cheeks need extra nutrition, I apply this and it delivers every time. No breakouts. The packaging could be improved a little, because one squirt releases a little too much product and it is very expensive...I have been on the same bottle for almost a year now though, so it has better value than I initially thought.
This product is the perfect blush for fair skin. It gives a very natural looking, charming flush of the cheeks that is simply pretty, and there is nothing you can do wrong with the application, it is just fool-proof. The only drawback is the price, I actually have to order this from zuneta.com and it's about 30€! Very expensive but I am so smitten with the shade and the texture I will go for it.
Fantastic. Much easier application and natural finish than a powder blush, and it comes in a very small tube, so really perfect to bring along to freshen up the face throughout the day! I love becca!
Palettes -Becca - Best of Becca palette (Holiday 2007)

Wonderful. Becca is one of the best discoveries I have made in the past years, they produce amazing stuff. The palettes are to die for, especially this one which is very well suited for daily use. I love the blossom cream blush so much I will repurchase that separately in full size, it just looks like a natural flush in the cheeks, dewy but not glimmery, I have never seen anything like it.
Lip Gloss -Rouge Bunny Rouge - Gleaming Temptations Lip Gloss - Coy
goldrauschengel 8/5/2012 5:07:00 PM
It is very expensive, but it is very special as well...The formula is a bit sticky but feels pleasant and wears a much longer time than other glosses, it is very moisturising too and the shade is very flattering...I actually buy lip glosses all the time and this is the first I have ever really used up! So I guess I should rather invest in another one of these rather than buying some useless others...
This face wash foams a lot which I like and it has very good cleaning properties, it even got rid of my eye make-up. However the scent is weird (medical) and I didn't like the pink beads in the formula because they don't really exfoliate, there are too few to really have any effect so they are just irritating...
Scrubs -Soap and Glory - The Greatest Scrub Of All

This is a scrub with very fine particles so it is quite gentle, plus it doesn't dry out my skin. I like it, but it's not a life-changing product either...
This mascara smudged a lot under my eyes so I passed it on to my sister. She didn't have issues with it. Maybe it was my concealer that didn't agree with this but I actually find it difficult to work with such a big brush too, because I have pretty small eyes...
I got a trial size of this and liked the brush and the clump-free formula so much that I just purchased the full size. It is easy to apply and a very natural-looking everyday mascara, volume is buildable, for length or very dramatic looks others might work better.
I have had this product for more than a year now but I only use it occasionally at work, the coverage is amazing when applied with the sponge, but it is also very cakey and dries my skin too much, so most of the time I use it as a face powder...Probably wouldn't repurchase it.
Tinted Moisturizer -NARS - Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer

Very disappointed so far. I bought this in Finland which is the fairest shade, and in the store the scent and formula seemed really promising. However, one hour after application this product just disintegrated into ugly patches on my face, which really shocked me considering the high price and the good reputation of the company...This was my first experience with NARS and I am not happy at all...The only reason I am giving this two stars is that I still have hopes I might be able to make this product work for me by changing the application technique or moisturiser underneath or something...I will have to wait for winter though because the shade is way too light for me in summer.
This cream works very well for my sensitive combination skin, no breakouts at all and a nice subtle matifying effect without drying out my cheeks too much. It is true that the product feels a bit strange right after application, like it is sitting on your skin for a minute or so, but after that it absorbs and just leaves me with comfortable, healthy-looking skin. It is not a product I couldn't live without but I'd repurchase, because most other matifying moisturisers are just too drying for me and this one actually works.
This is a very good moisturiser for dry, sensitive combination skin and I regularly go back to it, particularly when I have been experimenting too much with my skin care and my skin needs to be calmed down. I also find the price very acceptable and I like the tube for hygienic reasons. In summer usually the lighter formula is enough for daytime, but I like the richer version overnight or in the winter. It doesn't make my t-zone particularly shiny, but also has no matifying effect at all.
I really like the look and feel of this product, it gave me a sheer beautiful complexion without shine (I have combination skin and usually have to use powder several times a day, but not with this product, it mattified my t-zone well) - however, on the third day wearing this I developed some pimples on my cheeks, so I stopped using it. I guess now I will just be using it for an evening at at time when I am going out, but it's not fit for everyday wear which is pity. My search for the ideal TM continues, it seems most products on the market will dry my cheeks or make me break out...
