This is my hg summertime primer - how can you beat spf 50? I agree that it can get gross if you use too much - very little is needed. On days when I'm not wearing makeup it's great for adding protection and a touch of dewy to my complexion.

Worst cosmetic experience ever.....this is a great product for many it seems but I got an allergic reaction on my face for the first time. Ladies, it was fierce! Most my face was covered in tiny, itchy red bumps. My pharmacist recommended Benadryl for relief and that took the itching away but it was days before the bumps settled down and dried up, then I was left with a pile of pimples. On the up side.... I emailed CoverFX and a lady was very prompt and helpful in getting to the bottom of what ingredient may have caused this. Turns out I am allergic to coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone). So... an awful experience but the customer service was very much appreciated.

By far the best pencil liner I have used. Goes on sooo smooth and easy - no tugging and so hard to mess up. It's hard to believe a liner like this could be waterproof but it sets right away and stays put all day long! The shades available are simply beautiful. My favorites are Fauve and Smokey Brown! The price is a bit up there but sooo worth it!

This foundation is soooo perfect for dry days! Not super coverage and not the best staying power but just right for evening out my skin tone and leaving me looking dewy and fresh rather than dry and flakey. Sometimes I mix it with other foundations to get something that covers a little more and lasts a little longer. The color selection is not very big but I was able to find a perfect neutral match for myself. AND I love foundation with a pump!! Price is decent too!
This is a great serum!! I've been using it on and off for about a year and it always seems to settle down my imperfections (uneven skin tone, blotchiness) within a couple weeks, then I put aside to try something new and forget about it for awhile. It absorbs super well - I use it under a moisturizer in the winter and in the summer sometimes it's all I need. I'm also a big fan of the pump packaging! This is my favorite Biotherm skin care product. It's pricey for sure but lasts a loooong time.
JuicyTubes are the unltimate in slick, shiny, wet looking lips. I have a few of these and love them. Juicy Indeed! Make sure not to overdo it though or your lips will look all melty and drooly! Sure, the gloss is a little tacky but I think it would have no staying power without it. Only real downfall is the high price and the semi-chintzy packaging.
