I love love love this product! However, I could totally see how not everyone will love this. It is shimmery...do I think it's unwearable? Absolutely not, but I think it's a matter of preference. It's a tiny bit shiny on the tzone for me, but if you powder it's no big deal. I have very dry skin, and this didn't highlight that. This is probably my favorite Tinted Moisturizer I've ever tried, it's a little pricey at around $45, but totally worth it in my opinion, to have natural looking glowing beautiful skin! I would absolutely recommend this product, it's totally worth dropping by your local counter and getting a free sample! By the way, I applied this with a brush, not my fingers, and I really think that this formula does better with a brush, not your fingers. :)
I would rate this product as overall OK. OK color [Itried shade #2], OK coverage, OK texture. I just think it's too expensive for what you're getting, I would recommend the Dior Snow BB cream over this one, overall better color and coverage, in my opinion. I will say this one had pretty nice staying power though, and didn't make my skin super oily. I believe this product might work for someone else, but it didn't impress me enough to purchase again. As always with Dior, great packaging. Good luck! Finding the right BB cream for your skin is hard!
I agree with some of the previous reviewers, the color was a little too light for me, but the next one up was a little too dark, so I couldn't find a perfect match, however after an hour or two it matched my skin a little better, but still looked pretty unnatural. Not bad...just unnatural. I didn't find it particularly moisturizing, which I was hoping for due to the price, and the fact that I have pretty dry skin! Not a terrible product, but not excellent either. Won't purchase again, but I still suggest that you try it out, cause BB creams are different for EVERYONE!

I personally loved this product, the color matched my skin perfectly, I guess I lucked out. And I love that it has 50 SPF, that's beyond awesome. Packaging is very smart, I like it a lot. The only thing I did not love is the price, it's a little steep, like over $50[99%sure], but I will definitely repurchase. The only thing I have to say is it might be a little heavier of a BB cream than most, it does give pretty good coverage, so someone looking for very very very sheer wear may not like it. This is a great product though!!

I got samples of about 6 BB creams/tinted moisturizers when I was at Nordstroms the other day, and out of the 6 I would say I probably liked this one the least. It had pretty nice color, but it definitely sat on my dry patches and did not make my skin look very smooth or at it's best. May look good on someone with oily skin. Not super impressed, not the worst, but definitely not the best. Will not purchase.
This is an amazing foundation. It looks spectacular on, and I really like the colors. It gives a very natural dewey finish, but I found it really adds to the staying power of the foundation, to add some powder on the tzone. It is very expensive, about $59 from Bloomingdales, but worth it in my opinion. A little goes a long way, and it has buildable coverage. I would say it gives a light-medium coverage with one application. I highly recommend this foundation, before this I tried about 20 others(Dior, Chanel, Nars, YSL, Lancome, Benefit, ect) and this was definitely the best, by far. A+
I've never tried cream blush until this product, and I love it!!! Beautiful color, in the pan it looks a little too brown for my taste but it goes on pink, and the most subtle natural pink you can imagine! I use a brush to apply mine, and I feel it makes it really natural looking. It was a little expensive in my opinion, like $23 at Sephora, but I have a feeling it will last a very long time. I highly recommend it, it's a great great product, it does not give that same powder finish like powder blush, which I hate. Give this a try, it's gorgeous!
Dries SOOOOOOOOOOO quickly!!!!! And literally streak free, I love this stuff, really natural gradual color, it takes a few days to build, but that's why it looks so good!!! Definitely buy again!
The best eye shadow palette ever....period. I'm hooked and want the Naked 2 palette as well. $50 is insane...but, sooooo worth it!!! I hope it lasts a long time!
Awesome product, many uses!! And great sleek packaging! Only $3 at Target....can't beat it!!! I use it as a blush, bronzer, and highlighter!
Got this for about $7 at Ulta, but it was buy 2 get one free, so pretty good deal at the end of the day. Great packaging, nice brush. Nice deep black color. It thickens and lengthens, but doesn't look too over the top. I would say on a scale 1-10 of how natural it looks(1 being the most natural) it's probably a 6/7. When I wear this mascara on it's own...it flakes, which is annoying but ill get over it because I like the look. When I wear it on top of another mascara(which I like to do, layer mascara) it doesn't flake....I find that odd but oh well I won't knock it. I probably will stick with this mascara, I like it a lot! Just an update, it's a few months later and I'm HOOKED! I'm on my like 4th bottle, it Really is a great mascara, and I take back what I said about flaking, earlier. It really doesn't flake hardly at all.

Ok, so the price at Target is 11.99....I had a coupon for $3 off, so that was cool. You get a pretty decent amount of product and you don't have to use a lot at all. Goes on sheer, but I like the light coverage and color and it wears well. It sinks into fine lines so it probably wouldn't work on older skin very well, and it absolutely needs a translucent powder applied after or it does get pretty oily. Overall, I like it, but I hate the scent but I can get over that. Hopefully it improves my skin like it says it does...but only time will tell. Will rebuy!
Great lip balm! Got this in a duo package on clearance at Target, originally $5 on sale for $3 and I had a $1 off coupon...so $2 for 2 lip balms....can't beat that! I got pink punch and the clear one, I like them both they stay on pretty decently! Would definitely buy again, due to the price!
I really wanted to like this mascara, but I didn't. It's not a bad mascara, just nothing special whatsoever. I have freakishly long eye lashes, usually mascara looks pretty good on my lashes, but this one jut fell flat. Pros: Nice brush Nice packaging Washes off really nicely Cons: Not buildable Doesn't do what it claims, it doesn't add fibers like the L'oreal Beauty Tubes actually does. I found this to be really flat, and I didn't really like it at all, I paid 8.99 for it at Ulta, and returned it after a week.
WOW I LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!! I am alllll about this mascara, it's like $3.50 at Ulta, the brush is AWESOME, I love the tip, its great for the bottom lashes, and I just love the formula, and it lasts foreveerrr. Easy wash off, and it barely flakes, like at the end of a 15 hour day it'll flake a tiny bit. Def recommend, you can't beat the price!!!
