I was very impressed by this product - great concealing and blendability. Love the shades with yellow undertones. The only drawback is how limited Givenchy is in terms of retailers. I can basically only get it at Sephora or online at the Givenchy website.
Shampoo -Organix - Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil shampoo

This was the first time I used an Organix product. I typically use hair products purchased from salons, including argan hair products from other brands. I was surprised to see a drugstore brand using argan oil, so I decided to try it for comparison. I was very disappointed as this shampoo was not "renewing" at all, in fact it was harsh and drying. It is sulfate free and it did not lather well, unlike the L'Oreal sulfate free shampoos I've tried. The companion argan conditioner was no help - it was not moisturizing at all. Big disappointment.
I don't know why Bobbi Brown decided to feature this mascara in its promo beauty bundle for the anniversary sale at my local dept. store. I definitely would not have chosen it to represent the BB cosmetics line. The mascara applied easily, evenly and smoothly. It did appear to lengthen my lashes, but certainly not to an "extreme" level. It did not do much at all for volume. The big disappointment here is that it ran terribly under my eyes within the first hour and I was not in a hot or humid climate. My skin is on the oilier side so that may contribute to the "pulling down" of mascara from my lashes to my under-eye area. Though it removes easily with cleansing at the end of the day, it is not easy to do under-eye touch-ups with a q-tip throughout the day to try to control the racoon effect. The fact that it is a spendy product makes all of this harder to take.
Still very impressed with this product after using it continually for the last two years. I also love the Nia24 sunscreen. My skin feels stronger and smoother...healthier and brighter in general. I am acne prone, but this product does not cause breakouts, which surprised me because it contains oil. Packaging is kind of frustrating because it's hard to get all of the product out unless you cut the bottom off. If not, you end up throwing away several days worth. Great moisturizer...highly recommend it.
Best foundation I have ever tried. Looks and feels phenomenal. Does not melt or fade throughout the day. Covers well without feeling heavy. Will not break out my temperamental skin. Skin feels soft, smooth, fresh.
