I do not use this as my concealer. I put it on after my foundation and concealer as a highlighter around my eyes and it is just enough, not sparkly or thick like some highlighters. I am sure you could use this to highlight other areas of face as well.**Update**This product is amazing when used to enhance under eye and side eye area after I use my concealer. I also use it over my acne scars (after concealer) to further blur the pigmentation. Everyday staple for me.
I use alot of La Mer products so thought I would add this to my routine. It did nothing for me. My skin actually started flaking after use which doesn't make sense.
Lip Liners -Revlon - Colorstay Lip Liner in Nude 630
Avril14th 11/4/2011 4:48:00 PM
Love the color, the ease of application and the price. I like it as much as my Dior liner. I was unsure of which color to purchase because the colored caps do not match the true color of the lip liner. I purchaed one of the lighter ones first(think it was called natural) because cap color made it look like it would match me better but had to return it because it was too light. The nude is perfect.
Goes on easily, matches my lip color, stays on a long time, product lasts a long time and it is cheap. I also have a dior lipliner that I use and they are comparable. No need to spend more for a lipliner. I also like that I don't have to sharpen. It is a twist up/twist down package. The only thing is, if you forget to roll it down, it will break, however, mine broke and I just stuck it back in the hole and it still works pretty well. If it falls out occassionally, I just stick it back in.
I am reviewing Buttercream Delight with antioxidant complex, not Buttercream cupcake. It smells so good. I bought this for my daughter because I don't normally like any fragrances resembling food, however, when she sat next to me after her shower, I had to keep smelling her. It is more than a buttercream fragrance. It is more like a delightful light beautiful fragrance that I can't describe. You will not be able to stop smelling yourself after you use this. I do not use in my hair so cannot comment on that.
Received a sample today from neiman. In my opinion, the name does not fit the smell. This reminds me alot of the Tom Ford in the black bottle. Deep, dark, spicy. It also hints to Prada Iris. The more I sit here and sniff my arm, I am wondering if they put Iris in the Candy sample sprayer?? If not, the two are very similar. Definitely too heavy for my liking.
I requested a sample at sephora so I could try it first. It is very thick-a little goes a long way. I use a medium size foundation brush to apply after my tinted moisturizer. It gives great coverage, does not cake or exaggerate fine lines. It feels moistuirzing but could be my tinted moisturizer (dior youthtint) helping with that. I will be purchasing full size when sample is gone.
Tinted Moisturizer -Christian Dior - hydra life pro-youth skin tint
Avril14th 8/26/2011 10:31:00 AM
This is a really good tinted moisturizer. Good coverage and moisturizing. The light is more medium in my opinion.
I don't understand the hype on this. It took me five minutes to build the volume to look decent but did very little lengthening. Maybe that is what this product is supposed to do but I want a mascara that does it all and I am sure there is one out there. I will return to Sephora.
I have fine hair and cannot use alot of products because they can leave my hair dull, limp, and greasy. This product leaves my hair shiny, healthy looking and does not weigh my hair down at all. I do spray on root lifter product also when I use this. This is a must for humid summer days to keep away the frizzies.
Self Tanners -La Prairie - Gradual Self Tanner for Face and Body
Avril14th 6/16/2011 4:32:00 PM
Got a sample of this and have only used on my face and neck. Have been using for 4 days. Nice gradual color. I put on in the morning, let it dry and then put on my tinted moisturizer. The pros are: nice gradual color, does not dry out skin, no smell, moisturing, can wear under makeup, did not break me out at all. Con=Price but I have purchased the full size today inspite of the price
In my opinion, it will not give a "false eyelash look" however, it is one of the better drugstore mascara's that I have tried. It is buildable without getting clumpy. Helps with length more so than volume on my lashes. Does not flake or run.
Just received my online from Saks. I had to have LaMer body creme since I love Creme de la mer for my face. It was very thick(nowhere near as thick as the face creme, this spreads easily) and did not leave me greasy however as I look at the skin on my feet 30 minutes later, they do not look moisurized. The worst part is I had to return this and the hand creme because of the smell. It is not that the smell is too strong but as soon as I applied it I got an instant headache. I am one of those people that is very sensitive to smells and will get a headache from them very easily.
As a previous reviewer said, I am stunned as well. Got this at Walmart and after trying alot of self tanners and never happy with them, I thought I would give this a try. It is a gradual self tanner but I got a hint of color after the first application. I applied it every night for 3 nights until I reached the color I wanted. There are no streaks, it is not orange, has not stained my hands and does not leave the tell tale signs of self tanner on the usual spots (knee, ankles, elbows, wrists). I love this. It smells really good when you appy it BUT it is a self tanner so within a couple hours, you are going to smell. I apply mine before bed and shower the smell off in the morning. I am very pleased with this product.
Lotions/ Creams -Pacifica - Indian Coconut Nectar Body Butter
Avril14th 6/6/2011 6:41:00 PM
Got this with my sephora points. It does not smell good at all. It smells like rum and sickening sweet coconut. I like coconut smells, like Australian Gold suntan lotions but this is just gross. I am glad I did not pay for this.
