I fyou like a medium to full coverage foundation, you won't like this.If you have good skin, and are looking for a foundation that evens out imperfections, and makes skin look naturally flawless this is for you. FF feels slick when first applied and dries to a matte finish that isn't flat or dull. It's your skin, but perfected. For reference: Armani SDF 5.5, FF #3.
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - HIP Jelly Balm [DISCONTINUED]

I got this in Succulent. On me it's not a plummy color, it's more of a bright rose gloss. The color can be built up, it doesn't have a scent, leaves a nice stain on lips. Almost sticky. I hate the pot. I prefer glosses with applicators. Getting gloss under fingernails is annoying.Overpriced for a drugstore brand.
Looks like a nothing special in the tube- an average orangey red, with a metallic shine, is awesome, brightens my face and would look great on yellow or tan skin tones. A burnished red for ladies who are afraid to wear red, or someone who is looking for a red that's understated and not "in your face".
I love eyeliner. I prefer gel eyeliner, but I can't beat the price and quick application. This for me is a more swipe and go. It doesn't smear, flake, removes easily, but it does seem to lose its depth of color by evening. A winner.
I used to love this foundation. Reordered from Saks in 5. It oxidized in to a strange orangey color. I thought my moisturizer may have caused this color change. Tried a different moisturizer. No luck, so back it goes. I wish it had worked because it gives a flawless finish.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Superdefense SPF 25 Age Defense Moisturizer

I hate any whitish cast with sunscreen/moisturizer. I found that my foundation doesn't look quite right using sunscreen that leaves that infamous white glow, or worse the sunscreen causes my makeup to get that oxidized orange shade. This product doesn't do this. It's applies smoothly, doesn't drag when being applied, doesn't burn my eyes, moisturizes well, has great sun protection. I use SD SPF25 for dry to very dry skin. Just purchased my third jar. I only wish it was in a tube instead of a jar.
A pleasant green floral, nothing outstanding, a fragrance that wouldn't offend, appropriate for office wear. Lacks sillage and doesn't last through the day.
A great golden berry red, not over the top, a red for ladies who fear red. Supposedly a sheer, but has more depth than a normal sheer. Color can be intensified, has a tendency to morph into a pinky red as the day progresses. All in all a great red.
I use this every other day. I have fine, oily hair and it keeps my hair in great condition. It doesn't dry it out and adds tons of body unlike Aveda or Philosophy. The fragrance is more masculine than I like; it doesn't linger in the hair. I like my hair to smell clean not like green apples or those ungodly awful Aveda scents.If you have fine hair and it's in good condition, try this.
Natural and glossy. Why bother? If I want the natural look, I won't bother with mascara. As for glossy, it just made lashes flat black. I wear mascara to enhance my lashes, not to look "natural". If this is the look you're after, you may like this mascara.
Well, it appears that Paula's Choice FINALLY has improved their LONG DELAY in shipping ordered products. I had ordered from Andy Tauer Fragrance in Switzerland and the fragrance arrived before Paula's Choice. Come on, no way should it take over two weeks to ship from the West Coast to the Midwest. I ordered on Tuesday and products arrived Saturday. What an improvement! When I had complained about their slow shipping, the girl claimed "we didn't know". Yeah, right.
Screaming tuberose. Subtle it ain't and sillage galore. Men find it sexy as the devil. Go figure. At least it's not another ubiquitous vanilla scented number. The trick to wearing this white flower number is not to overapply. Applied with restraint, it's a beautiful scent.
Nice bottle but the scent smells to me like a cross between Lemon Pledge, baby powder, vanilla and the infamous Guerlainade note. Definately not a keeper.
I bought into the hype that this lippie looks great on everyone. Well, I must be the exception. All it did was wash me out.
Pricey, but worth it. I only apply one coat and my lashes look thick and long. It doesn't smear, flake, smudge and lasts all day. Most importantly, this mascara is contact wearer friendly.
