This is the best tinted cream I've ever used. It gives a nice low coverage (more compared
I love this mask. I find that my skin feel smooth and changed texture for days after I used this. I apply it after I have been out jogging - whens my circulation is on top. I think the skin also looks brighter after wearing this.

I think this is a really overrated product! It is so expensive and it covers hardly nothing... I know that u can use it as a highlighter as well but then u might as well use the cheaper drugstore versions, like maybelline or loreal for example! I think this does exactly the same as the cheaper versions.
This is amazing to cover up any blemishes, veins imperfections, for setting your undereye concealer etc. It looks so natural!!
I really liked this foundation! Here in Sweden we also have it with a pump so that's good. I think it reminds me about the nars sheer glow in it's finish, only that it lasts for longer! I also find that it does not oxidize without a primer. My only problem are the shades. I am really cool-toned and nars sheer glow in mont blanc is my all time perfect foundation colours. I find that the 115 is to dark and the 110 is light enough but not pinky enough. I think that I might buy the 115 to mix the two to achive my perfect colour!
I really like this lipstick, the only problem I have is that it tends to wash me out a bit. (I am a NW15, BR10, mont blanc ). when my best friend that has a really dark olive skin tone tried it it looked SOOO beautiful on her, it just brought out her features and colours. So, I think it is nice to wear when I have a self-tan on or maybe when I have a colouful purple eye but I think it will look even more amazing on you warme tone girls!

This is the most natural looking foundation I've ever used! I found that the fluid version was to powdery for my dry skin and I was really sad because everyone was raving about how good it was, then I found the compact and I am in love! I find that the coverage is much better and that it looks almost more natural than the fluid version because it looks less powdery. I have the shade BR20 in the spring/autumn, (probably BR10 in winter), and when I have a selftanner on in the summer I have B30 (!) I thinks it gives me I pretty olive-skin look for a change, Great foundation, looks like skin!!
I bought this foundation last year when I was in Paris. I got matched to the shade Mont Blanc at sephora, OMG I have never EVER found a foundation that have matched mmy skin colour so well. I am cool toned but still not extremley pink...I find that many cool-toned drugstore foundations, fit me n.115 for example are too pink and dark...mont blanc are just perfectly cool toned and very pale. It is the perfect winter shade. I love the finish, it looks amazing when u apply it. The only problem I have with it is the staying power... I have not tried to set it with powder though...maybe it would make the staying power better. The shade mont blanc goes so well together with the Becca shimmering skin perfector in pearl! <3
I previously used moroccoan oil and I really liked that except for the smell. I find that the kerestase oil does the same thing as the moroccoan oil - and it does not have the same bad smell!
Primer/ Corrector -Bare Escentuals - Prime Time Oil Control

I think this is a horrible primer! After I applied it my skin feels really dry and hard and I feel that all my prep with dermalogica etc has been all for nothing. Then when I put my foundation on, (have tried with both mineral powder and chanel vitalumiere aqua), it just flakes of! I get big white flakes all over my face because the primer rolls off.... really horrible! I've tried both much and little/ whole face and just parts but it doesn't matter...
I like this foundation, but I find it too powdery for my skin! I wear it in B10 and I think it is slightlys too yellow, I should probably have bought the BR10. I apply it with my Sigma f80 for a medium coverage and I think that it works really well. It looks really natural but still covers. My only complaint is that it looks a bit powdery at the end of the day, (without primer), I am now going to buy the, "blanc de chanel-primer" and see if that helps me. Anyone with any experience with that primer combined with this foundation? EDIT: I bought the chanel vitalumiere aqua compact, it works sooo much better for my dry skin!!
I bought this in # 5 and it looked like a perfect match in the store, when I applied it the day after it started oxidizing for me and my face got an ORANGE tone :( I also think it is to matte. I'm now thinking about buying NARS sheer glow, does anyone know what colour would match med if I am a # 5 in this? EDIT: when I use it with a primer underneath (maybellin age rewinde) it does not oxidize, I love the finish then!
