So, finally this is the successful and upgraded version from Teint Idole Ultra 14-hr and Teint Idole Fresh 18-hr. I have tried both the other two Teint Idole Ultra and Teint Idole Fresh for some time and either Ultra gave me an orange face (almost all the shades oxidized badly and turned orange on the face) or the Fresh gave me too little coverage, it was just never making it up to my expectation. I almost gave up and started looking at other brands and then, it came this Teint Idole Ultra 24H. The texture of this Ultra 24hr is really light and it feels like my second skin after applying it. I have combination skin and surprisingly, the Ultra 24hr doesn't make my skin oily most of the time, except for if I'm under some extreme environment like being inside a really stuffy room and it provides enough moist on my dry area like cheekbone. The coverage is good, medium and it's buildable and it covers my imperfections like freckles and some light redness around my nose. The foundation even seems a little pricy, but a little goes a long way. I don't need a full pump for my entire face. I apply it with a blush and it also stays for most of the day, at least for 12 hours. Another good thing about it is that it doesn't break my skin out. The only draw back would be, even though it feels light on the skin but I still feel a "second skin" sticking onto my face. It would best if I could feel the foundation totally dissolves in my skin but still be able to provide coverage. My skin tone is light beige with a combination of yellow and pink undertone and I'm using this found in shade 250, which matches perfectly with my skin tone.
This is one of my favorite products that Benefit has to offer. Yes, it's pricey BUT you get your bang for the buck with this. The size of the bottle is comparable to that of nail polish. That may or may not seem small to you, but think about how much of this you actually need -- only very little because a a wee bit goes a long way. This lasts a very long time. I dab a little of this on my cheek bones and in the areas where the sun naturally hits my face. My skin has an instant beautiful glow without making me look shiny or greasy. I'd recommend to everyone because it's universally flattering.

I got this blush because it was cheap, even for the price, it is a horrible blusher because it is sooooo freaking powderly!!! even when you swipe the blush once with the softest brush you own, you will get crumbs allll over. the color is okay but nothing special. i threw it out right away.
I have Ricepaper but i don’t use it often. I think that I have way too many neutral eyeshadows and I will need 5 life times to use them all up.

Very good, simple product. Fragrance is a little stronger than expected, but it washes clean & doesn't irritate sensitive skin.
I LOVE this foundation! I have used mac pro-long wear then switched to estee lauder double wear and hands down urban decay just made the best foundation ever!!!! I feel like I'm not even wearing foundation. They have a beautiful wide rage of colors and I was matched with 5.0 One thing I can say is that I usually would use the beauty blender but it made the foundation way to watery. I have to go back to the store and get the optical blurring brush from U/D that is needed with this foundation it sure did give it a better finish. If you have not tried this foundation yet, you are missing out
Pros: sheer but can build up color, go on smoothly, not fake-looking Cons: not inexpensive I felt in the mood to splurge a bit on myself. I love the lipsticks -- smooth and sheer -- easy to layer color -- great with or without lip-liner.

Pros: Your face will be as smooth as a baby's you know what. Bang for your buck Cons: A huge pain to mix, almost not worth it. There are other products out there that do the same thing without the hassle. Getting the consistent right mixture requires a slight learning curve.
