Wow. I am so impressed. I have normal skin, but I still love this moisturizer. I am a high end snob when it comes to skin care-- so I was skeptical when I read about this- but I just had to try it because of the reviews! I love that is is gentle and non fragranced. It is such a good basic moisturizer that does what it claims. I use this at night over my treatments and in the morning under my sunscreen. Non irritating, smooth, non greasy. I've found a great alternative to my creme de la mer :)
I've tried so many highlighters, it's not even funny. My high end staple: Fresh Satin Lustre. My drugstore staple? Jane's Wisteria. Don't be fooled, this is NOT a blusher. It is an amazing highlighter for my pale skin. Use a light hand and this product will make you look lit from within. I get so many compliments on my skin when i use this. It is also multi purpose. I use it to highlight my brow bone, the inner corner of my eyes, and my cupid's bow. You basically cannot lose with it's dirt cheap price! This beats out so many pressed highlighters that are much more expensive.
in one word: HG. I've used every exfoliator known to man kind. this by far is the best in terms of being gentle but effective. a little goes a long way- just make sure to massage it in well. don't think that its non abrasive nature is not exfoliating your skin-- it really does. after i rinse my face off, my skin is glowy and smooth and ready for my skin care routine. i use this every night after i cleanse my skin. i would buy barrels of this stuff if i could, i love it that much.

I was a huuuge skeptic of this product. I am so sad that I waited this long to try it. Really. This is the BEST moisturizer ever. I use it in the morning and at night. Use it as directed and your skin just sucks it up and stays smooth. My skin has never been so calm and well moisturized. I think you need to have normal/good skin to really love this because it's simply a moisturizer... not a miracle in a jar.

I've tried every exfoliant on the market. This is hands down HG for me. I'm already on my third tube. I use this everyday. Yes, it's that gentle, but that effective. Makes your skin smooth. Does not over dry. Does not scratch your skin or make it raw. I am the pickiest and most skin care obsessed girl I know. GET THIS.
Pressed Powders -T. LeClerc - Pressed Powder in Ivoire

I have pale skin and I LOVE this powder. I always come back to this after trying other translucent, pressed powders. It melts into my skin and leaves it looking flawless!!! Worth every penny and it goes a long way...
Pressed Powders -T. LeClerc - Pressed powder in Orchidee

I have pale skin and I LOVE this. I used it as a blush, however. If used with a VERY light hand, this is a great complexion enhancer, like BeneFit's Dandelion. I love the finish of the powder-- it melts right into my skin and doesn't look cakey at all.
I love this blush period. I have pale skin and when I want a luminous glowy look, I reach for this blush. It's a really pale blue based pink that really compliments pale skin. A little goes a LONG way... The shimmer is more like a sheen-- it gives you a glow without the chunky glitters so it's definitely wearable in the daytime. I love LORAC blushes. I have tried all the top blushes and I have found a gem in LORAC. Definitely HG blush for me. If you want a similar blush in this color without the shimmer, try LORAC's cheek stamp in Pink Paradise!!! Only gripe I have is with the packaging-- wish it wasn't a twist off cap...
After trying MANY blushes, I have to say that LORAC blushes are the best. I like that the colors suit my pale skin. I have the LORAC blush in Desire and it's a blue pink that is really pale with a hint of shimmer. This cheek stamp is a pale blue pink that is matte and I love it as well. VERY easy to blend and the stamp puts just the right amount of color on your cheeks. There is no waste with brushes and powder flying everywhere. It look shockingly bright in the pan but it gives me the exact pink I want on my cheeks. HG blush in my book. Price may be a bit high, but a little goes a LONG way and the formula is unlike any other powder blush I've tried.
Yes, this is under "Kracie" now-- This is a staple in my night routine. Takes off everything-- and keeps the blackheads away! I use a foam cleanser afterwards to make sure all the residue is washed away. A great value. Only gripe I have is with the packaging-- but i transfer this into my Shu pump and it works fine that way:)
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Colorbeam Superlustrous Lipgloss in Beam of Pink
LY80 5/9/2008 4:03:00 AM
I have black hair and fair skin-- and I've been looking for nude lip color for the longest time. I've given up-- nude just looks orange on me. I got this in a swap and this is my perfect "nude" lip color. It tones down the pigment in my lips and is perfect paired with a smokey eye. I love it! I hope revlon will re-release this and make it a permanent part of the collection!!! I have these glosses in Shine City and Champagne as well. Best lip glosses hands down. HG HG HG. I used this today with a lip stain and I've fallen more in love with this gloss! Perfect pink gloss.
Ok, I can't believe I didn't know about this makeup remover until now... I've been using Decleor cleansing milk, Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil... I've been devoted to cleansing oils-- I do love them, but they totally strip all the oils off my face! This is wonderful- I was a bit worried that it was a little greasy-- but like it claims, it takes off all makeup and leaves the essential moistures in your skin. What I do is apply this and massage it into my face. Then I tissue it off and follow with a foaming cleanser. My skin feels clean but moisturized. I love this. I will have to try the other methods listed below--! Will update later.

I don't know why this got such terrible reviews here. If you're looking for a foundation substitute, this is it (if you don't need coverage, but just a smooth base for powder). I pat this lightly onto my face after my moisturizer and dust powder over it. It helps to create that base that foundation usually does. I don't wear foundation, so I love this! It can also be used to touch up on top of makeup. I love the fresh scent and the light powdery consistency compared to other primers. The key to using this is to roll the sponge onto your face-- don't wipe. The only gripe I have about this is the packaging-- it comes in a tin case. I'd rather have it in a hinged case that doesn't have the potential to rust.
I'm a skin care junkie. I don't spend a lot of money on makeup, but when it comes to skin care, I'll invest money. I heard about this through a skin care blog, and I am so glad I found this. This is now being sold as "booster c". I love this powder and will keep this is in my beauty arsenal for many years to come to maintain my skin :). The price is so reasonable for the amount you get. Love this!!!
Great non abrasive peel. I don't like scrubs with harsh beads and granules. The key to success with this peel is to take a warm bath/shower prior to application to loosen up the dead skin cells on your skin. You must let it soak in for a good few minutes-- then moisten face and rub and you'll see the mask peel off as it rubs off dead skin cells. This is my first Clarins product, and I have to say that it's a great exfoliant. Yes, it is on the pricier side, but I can see this lasting me for a while...
