This is absolutely the best hairspray ever ! I will only use this hairspray on my hair. It holds very well (even my curls) and never makes my hair feel dry, stiff, or crunchy. The hold lasts all day but still can be brushable! It has a light, pleasant scent to it that doesn't smell like disgusting candy and fruits like other hairsprays. I will repurchase forever !
Moisturizers -Desert Essence - Jojoba Oil - 100% pure

I love this ! I use this as a moisturizer everyday except for extremely, dry cold winter days (when I need an extra cream) and it works perfectly ! It makes my skin smooth and glowy. I will probably use this forever. Best of all it is 100 natural with no extra ingredients/fragrances/or chemicals. I have normal but very sensitive skin and this has never caused any irritation or breakouts! In fact I am sure it helps keep break outs at bay. I especially love to use this as an everyday moisturizer in the summer because it always feel clean and light. After I get out of the shower I just carefully pour out 1 DROP for my whole face and gently pat/massage it into my skin. Make sure you don't use more than a small drop to avoid looking shiny! Sidenote: Try this out under makeup before you go out or anything to see if it works for you. I realized on the days I wear foundation I use Estee Lauder's Daywear cream because this doesn't always make my foundation look so great. If it works for you under makeup then great but if you have drier skin you may need to use a cream under foundation. I would still suggest using this as a night time moisturizer even if you can't wear it under your makeup everyday! :-) Your skin will love this stuff !
Foundations -Tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full-Coverage Foundation SPF 15

Oh how I wanted to love this foundation. The texture is amazing and so easy to blend. It comes out of the tube as a lovely, creamy, mousse-like texture. It feels incredibly light and smooth on the skin with a good amount of coverage. I tried this in the shade Medium. It looked flawless for about 30 minutes and then bam! It OXIDIZES like crazy. The color changed so much into something that didn't match my skin with an ugly orange tint. If you look are the ingredient list, there are a few ingredients that are notorious for making foundations turn orange. I wish I could use this or had fairer skin but I would not buy this makeup at all unless you are fine with looking like an orange freak :(
I love this foundation! It gives a nice, full and even coverage. No foundation on this planet lasts as long as this! Never has caused irritation or break outs for me. Seriously, you can be dancing up a storm all night and this will still look the same through all of the nasty sweat. This makeup does not oxidize at all; its nice knowing that you won't look like an orange oompa loompa an the end of the day. My only gripes with this foundation are ... 1. The color I have Shell Beige ( 4W) is nice but sometimes looks a little bit too pinky/grey on me. I may try mixing it with a foundation that is more yellow to get the perfect balance. 2. It is necessary to accept the fact that your face will look straight up WHITE in all flash photography. If you can find the perfect shade, and apply/ evenly blend a small amount with a foundation brush you will get a nice, even semi-matte finish. Be careful not too put on too much though bc you will surely look overly made up with a deathly ultra-matte face.
Liquid -Estee Lauder - Double Wear LIGHT Foundation SPF10

Love Estee Lauder foundations but this one is nice alternative to the regular Double Wear. I apply this with a foundation brush and brush on some Lancome Dual finish for a nice, matte finish. Pros: Extremely long wearing! Doesn't feel heavy. Doesn't oxidize. Unscented. Doesn't irritate sensitive skin. Colors are slightly less pink than the original Double Wear. Easier to blen than the regular double wear. Easy packaging (tube) Cons: The finish has a somewhat but not overly luminous sheen to it. A lot of people like this but I need to set it with some powder. Doesn't photograph amazingly well as all Estee Lauder foundations show a ghastly white cast in flash photograpy.
This is a marvelous product. It does not irritate my sensitive skin, and actually contains the very best ingredients to make your skin more youthful, smoother, and brighter. I'd say it is worth the expensive price tag. It definitely works and reduced inflammation in my skin while making it smoother and brighter in just a couple uses. I will definitely buy this again! This is one of the very few face treatments that doesn't leave a sticky film on the skin and doesn't cause break outs. It also feels amazingly luxurious and soothing on the skin :-)
Amazing mask ! Definitely helped my acne when I had it. Even after my acne was gone, I used it weekly to cool my skin and keep the pores in my t-zone clean. It also reduces oil in the the face. I love it and it never irritated my extremely sensitive skin.
I initially like this foundation, but after using it for more than a week..it is safe to say that I HATE IT. I loved the old Teint Idole Ultra because it was so much smoother upon application and the warm shade wasn't overly yellow based. The new version is far more difficult to blend and is a bit too yellow for my preference. The staying power is decent but in my opinion, it oxidizes a tad. I like the finish( it is a nice satiny matte finish) but for me it isn't worth it because the color selection is way off, especially compared to the older version. The Warm shades are only good if your skin tone has very yellow/golden undertones and the neutral shades are too orangey for me. Try a sample before purchasing to see if the color works for you !
