Moisturizers -Clinique - Superdefense SPF 25 Age Defense Moisturizer

I have very picky skin, but I must say I am enjoying this product. I use Super City Block SPF25 in the summer, but as the weather gets colder, the skin on my face dries out. I use the formula for normal-oily skin, and it leaves my skin very soft. It feels lightweight. I have very picky skin, but I haven't had any breakouts or other problems of that nature. I do wish it came in a tube, for sanitary reasons, and it's a little spendy for me, but I like the product very much and I am likely to repurchase it when I use up my jar.

This foundation has a beautiful finish! Velvety smooth, it has excellent coverage. It is not especially natural-looking, but not terrible. This is one of the only foundations I've ever found that doesn't settle into my pores. I wish more foundations had a finish like this. It has a smooth, silicone-greasy feel when you apply it although it is oil free. It has a dewy finish and blends out easily. I usually powder and repowder because it does tend to dissolve when my skin gets oily, but I've never found a foundation that doesn't do that. However, the lightest shade is slightly dark and peach for my warm-ivory skintone, and would not be a match for anyone with very light skin. If they had a better shade range, this would be a HG for me. But I cannot use a foundation that is just too dark and orange, and it's really too bad. I should also mention that the company has lousy customer service so be careful when ordering directly from them. They charged me a 20% restocking fee on a cancelled order and sent me a rude email.
I have this in Claret and I just love it. The shade is stunning - a YLBB sort of peachy rose color. It lasts really well without drying, and the applicator makes it easy to apply without liner. I had a sample of this and bought the twinset because I liked it so much. It is expensive, but not a bad deal for the twinset because it comes with gloss, and because it lasts so long, you don't need to apply it as much (listen to me justify my love!)
I've been using this about 10 days and so far I really love it. I do use another eye makeup remover first, but it leaves my skin feeling smooth and clean, not dry. I have rosacea and very sensitive but oily skin.
This is a very pretty color. I am a warm-toned PPP, and this is one of the prettiest pink shades I've ever worn. It has a very slight, very subtle shimmer, and on me is a peachy pink color that is perfect for summer. The texture is decent, not too drying, and it has average staying power. I impulse-purchased this and I am glad I did.
I really like the texture of this. Shiny, not too sticky, just a little pigment. Very nice glosses!
I have this in Baby Lips, and I really don't care for it. It's unwearably sticky. The color is beautiful, but I can't stand the texture. Also, it's in this awkward tube. You can't easily apply it directly from the tube, and too much oozes out and gets on everything, and once it does, NOTHING will get it off your hands, your cheeks, your lips, etc. It definately is more tenacious than your average gloss. Personally, I don't mind reapplying my lipgloss, but if you do mind that, this might be a good option.
Great powder! Sheer, flawless finish, helps to keep me matte longer. I do wish the container were larger, but other than that I have no complaints about this.
Pretty colors! The shimmery champange color is unique, it has a slight lilac tone. I don't have Kitten, but I think this one is very pretty. The darker shade would be nicer if it were dark enough to line with, but it makes a pretty crease color. I LOVE the blush, it is a beautiful matte peach. If you love warm tones, this trio is definately worth considering.
I have this in Pink Blush and I love it. It's so soft and subtle, it really brightens my face. It is really my favorite blush.
I just got this in Brown Eyed Baby because I loved the color - a very shimmery/glittery sheer copper brown. It comes in a lipgloss wand applicator and is sort of a pain to apply, although not as much as MAC Paints which I don't even use because I find them too much of a bother and too much always squeezes out of the little tube and that's a pain too. Anyway, I find this lasts really well without creasing and it is a fun product to include in my arsenal. I don't normally use Estee Lauder, but I do think this is very pretty.
I do love this shower gel. It is surprisingly gentle and non-drying. I have the fragrance, Lychee, which I think is a nice, light floral, a scent I usually think of as clean and smelling sweetly of shampoo. It lingers very softly on the skin. This also foams nicely. The shower gel is expensive, and while it is no longer packaged in a glass bottle, I still think the wide mouthed bottle could be better for ease of use.
I have a lip brilliance in the "Fall Into Spring" kit, and I just love it! It is a beautiful color and has a fabulous gloss-like texture with excellent staying powder. I can't wait to try the lip brilliance kits, and I recommend this.
I can not believe how great this product is! It's so easy to use, it goes on perfectly, the colors are pretty, and it lasts and lasts and lasts. It spoils you for every other kind of eyeliner!
Great foundation! I agree with the comments below. Nice coverage, lasts really well even on oily skin, no breakouts or reactions, and has a reliable sunblock. Recommend this highly!
