Treatments -L'Oreal - Revitalift Triple Power Concentrated Serum

I was on the fence about buying this product but I'm soooo glad I bought it. It smells heavenly (not heavy at all, at least not for me) and absorbs immediately, leaving my skin glowy and healthy looking. Whatever is in there (and it has some great ingredients) works! My skin has never looked better. I smooth it over my whole face and neck, eyelids and under eyes and I've never had a problem with irritation. I use it before my loreal collagen filler moisturizer and revitalift eye cream... and my skin looks fantastic. Very happy with this product!!! I recommend it because it does exactly what it claims to. Love it!
Primer/ Corrector -L'Oreal - Magic Lumi - Light Infusing Primer

I was very pleasantly surprised by this product. I bought it on a whim and somehow didn't expect too much from it.... but it turned out to be possibly one of the best make up purchases I have ever made. It works fantastic as a primer and as a highlighter. I apply it under my foundation and it gives me that *lit from within* appearance. I love it! If I feel like it, I'll dot some more product on my cheekbones and on my brow bone but VERY slightly because my skin is already glowy. One pump is enough for the entire face and it looks very pearly and white but on the face it just looks like you have healthy skin. Will most definitely repurchase!
This is my go-to foundation when I've run out of my beloved Lancome. It's an excellent foundation for the price - great color match, great texture, great staying power and great coverage. I have dry skin so I use the one for dry skin and I'm very happy with it. The only thing that I wasn't too pleased about was the matt finish. However, I have come across an illuminating primer that completely fixes that problem.
This is the first eyelid primer I have ever bought and I doubt I will ever buy eyelid primer from another brand. This stuff is SO great and only costs $1! I have heard it's comparable to UD primer potion but I have never tried it so I cannot say. ELF's primer does everything a primer is supposed to AND it's literally a fraction of the price of the primer potion. I was very pleasantly surprised at how the color of my eyeshadows popped and stayed on ALL day. When I took my makeup off at night it looked exactly as it did when i applied it that morning. Flawless! I highly recommend this product to anyone for is looking for a good eyelid primer at a good price.
Loose Powders -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Loose Powder

I was very disappointed with this product. I was so eager to try it after reading SO many good reviews... It doesn't make my make up stay on longer AT ALL, it makes my face feel tight and it makes my skin look dull... too matte. I only apply a tiny bit, too, so I know I'm not over-applying it. My favourite loose powder is by Bourjois but I have not been able to find it here in the US. This product might be good for someone with oily skin but for me it's a no go.
Skincare - Body -Sally Hansen - Airbrush Legs in Light Glow
VioletSeahorse 11/9/2011 2:54:00 PM
This product does exactly what it promises - gives flawless, airbrushed legs! I bought the medium glow shade and it matches my skin tone perfectly. It is not at ALL orange, it gives a very nice tanned look to my legs. I have noticed though that it does transfer onto clothes somewhat, but not too much. Also, it's sparkly in the sun - this can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on one's preference. I think the glitter is to give it a "pantyhose" effect. I personally don't mind it all that much, but if I could choose I'd choose no glitter. The key to getting a natural effect is BLENDING! You have to blend blend blend! It dries pretty fast so you have to work quickly and continuously until it's almost dry. I think it goes on best on bare legs [no moisturizer prior to applying it]. All in all I am very happy with this product. I was skeptical at first and wasn't sure what shade to buy. It would be nice if the price was a little lower but hey.. you can't have it all. I wonder how long a bottle lasts...
I am in love! Finally I have found my HG foundation! This foundation makes my skin look better than EVER! I am 30 so I don't really need the *lift* but it certainly doesn't hurt. I made the switch from Estee Lauder's DW foundation because I was looking for something more moisturizing. I like my foundation to have good coverage, good staying power and a dewy finish. This foundation does all three if I wear a primer. Most foundations that have great staying power [like the DW] are better for oily skin and give a more matte finish, so I don't mind investing in a primer to use this foundation because it gives me everything I am looking for in a liquid foundation. That's why I give this product 5 lippies - it's the best foundation I've ever put on my face, I LOVE it! It's *the one* :D Lancome has the most luxurious textures. It gives a very natural yet flawless look to your skin. The DW had the tendency to look heavy and even cakey, and it made me look washed out and my skin looked dull in comparison to this! With the Renergie Lift my skin glows beautifully, and it makes it seem like I've had 10 hours of sleep [and I usually get only a few]. It's very buildable, blends wonderfully and feels SO light and soft and smooth. The shade is a PERFECT match [clair 25w] and I don't even need to wear concealer because this foundation brightens my complexion so much. The price is steep but I have no problem dishing out that much for something I am extremely happy with. It's worth every penny! Absolutely love this product :)) and would DEFINITELY recommend it!
