The best full coverage foundation ever! At first I hesitate between this one and Laura Mercier Silk Creme and I choose EL finally. I have terrible oily skin, full of acne scars, super large pore, so the foundation that I look for is only the full coverage. The general light foundation on the market today is nothing on my face. I used to use Revlon Colorstay (old formula) which provided full coverage but so thick and broke me out crazy, Revlon Colorstay whipped which cast on my face during the day, people know my face was covered with paint and it didn't cover acne scars enough, and the last one Vichy Dermablend gave me full coverage but didn't last all day, it washed off, the nude shades (25) looked orange and most important it sinked into pores. EL Max Cover gives me the look like Vichy, matt and cover well, but the consistency is better, high pigment so little goes a long way. It dries very fast and I think mixed with some moisturizers is better. It doesn't sink into my large pores and last all day. I love this foundation very much as I have bad skin so I'm very pleased with this one but for someone who has good skin may not satisfy with this foundation because of the coverage quality.
I love this foundation! My face is very oily, full of acne acars, and large pores, so the only foundation that I always search for is full coverage and oil control. Revlon Whipped does this job. The consistency is easy to apply and it doesn't sink into pores during the day. It rather controls oil well and also it lasts all day. The coverage is depending on the amount you apply but it neither looks cakey nor heavy on the skin. However I think it's medium coverage and that's OK for me. The finish is silky smooth as it claims. I'm very pleased with the result of the drugstore foundation. Even expensive counterbrands don't do as they claim.
The colour of the bottle should be lilac or violet because the scent is purple flowers! This is beautiful floral powdery smell. Fresh, delicate, and not full of talcum. No citrus smell so it's not harsh. I think the main notes are violet leave mixed with almond and heliotrope. Lovely Toujours Glomour!
Definitely a grandma's perfume, this fragrance brings you back to the 80's. All I could smell is dirty powdery smell.
Foundations -Vichy - Dermablend Corrective Foundation

I don't impress this foundation. Compared with Revlon Color Stay, Vichy isn't as good as Revlon, both texture and coverage. It's thick and the color is limited which has pink or orange for Asian skin. I have very very bad skin, full of bad acne scars, super oily skin, huge pores, so I try to find the foundation that can cover scars and control oil well. This foundation is okay but not good as I hope. It can't cover my scars completely and I still see in on my face, also makes my face sticky during the day. The bad thing is it sinks into my hugh pores. If you have hugh pores, I don't recommend. It's good for acne prone skin anyway, because it doesn't cause breaking out due to its non-comedogenic ingredients. Unlike Revlon Color Stay, makes me break out every times I use.
Smell like a thousand of sugar melt in your smell, I mean this is a super sweet scent, really uncomfortable smell.
This is review of Les Creations de Monsieur Dior It's very natural smell.It starts with ylang-ylang then quickly changes into jasmine TRUE JASMINE! fresh,green,pure.If you're jasmine lovers,you'll surely fall in love.Maybe it's mixed with lily of the valley but I can't separate it because both flowers are beautiful green scent.I can't detect any musk or spicy just frsh flowers.It's great to find natural not synthetic or artificial scent in perfume market.I give TRUE JASMINE for Diorissimo and TRUE ROSE for Paul Smith Rose.
This is the amazing product! It's toner and acne healing in one bottle. It's no use buying other toners that contained only glycerin because this toner exfoliate skin effectively.I normally have acne prone skin,also comedone.I have been using it about a month and I see improvement.This toner make my skin clear and heal my acne.It also eliminates blackhead at my nose.I think,the next bottle, I will change to the strength formula (lower pH),anyway,this mild one is very effective.Highly reccommend!
I love the coverage and oil control of ColorStay but it makes me break out everytime I use it (comedone). No matter how I cleanse my face completely with cleansing lotion followed by foaming wash two times but my face is terribly bad! I think it's due to its ingredient "NaCl" which has high rate of comedogenic. I used to have comedone from using Neutrogena Acne Wash which has NaCl also. I think this foundation contains bad ingredients for skin such as alcohol. I think if I use foundation everyday I should avoid bad ingredients because it's on my skin more than 10 hours a day especially the waterproof one.

This is the first eyeliner I used. It's increadible to find good eyeliner in cheap price like this! Easy to draw and really last,waterproof and super cheap compared to other eyeliners. Great for oily eyelid also.
I have acne problem. I used it about a month to see a result (I didn't know I've had tolerated it for long.) ,but it make my skin even worse. It really irritated my skin badly. generally,I don't have sensitive skin,but AKN hurts me!,make my face reder,break out every day,also ball up on skin and didn't absorb due to heavy silicone... . I really really regret buying it. Very bad product!
This is the new version (Les Creations de Monsieur Dior Forever and Ever Dior) review I finally found my signature scent! I've searched for flower scent without fruits for long. It's really soft,smooth scent with a little powdery and soapy in a pleasant way,sweet but not cloying unlike other scent that soon make me get a headache. This is the first fragrance that I like from the beginning to the end of olfactory notes. From Dior.com Top notes : Freesia Middle notes : Indian Jasmine absolute Base Notes : Bulgarian Rose I can't separate the scent which is freesia,jasmine,or rose,because the composition is really perfectly balanced. I never test the old version before so I don't know it smells the same or not. The scent is also romantic,subtle and delicate especially rose in base note. You feel like you walk in flower garden and smell something pleasant blowing from the wind and the new bottle is pretty,transparent unlike the old one. Love it so much! :)
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Paul Smith - Rose EDP

Yessss! I finally found true rose scent!!! It's hard to find pure rose scent nowadays but Paul Smith Rose is fresh,true rose petal,lovely,no musk,no spice,no powder,no soap,but a little green. This is the masterpiece of naturally rose scent,without synthetic.I can inhale deeply like it's rose soliflore. Rose in a bottle,well done!
The combination of flower and gourmand scent is good. It's lovely and light. The gourmand scent isn't strong as other celeb perfumes. If I'm a fan of gourmand fragrance,sure that I will repurchase it.
Yuck!!! I can't stand the scent!!! Really intense just like an old French perfume from the past decade. It's sickly sweet,dark and sexy which is not my character,suitable for cold weather as well. The combination of pink pepper,rose,vanilla and strong patchouli makes me sick and not comfortable in hot climate. I'm a big fan of light scent, so this one is not my type and until now it's still full of bottle. Avoid Black XS if you're a fan of light floral/fruity fragrance.
