I bought this for like 5 pounds, it was on sale, and it's my fav blush for everyday! nice sheen and color, a mac mineral blush dupe!
This is really nice! I wear mont blanc even though I don't have a pink undertone (I think it looks fine), Siberia would be too light. The weird thing is that I have combo skin and I actually have problems with this foundation on my driest part, my chin. My forehead and nose looks fine throughout the day, both places being quit oily. In conclusion I think nars should rethink their advice that this foundation is good for dry skin.

Liquid -Korres - Ginger and Vitamins Foundation, SPF 10 [DISCONTINUED]

This is a very nice natural looking foundation. I would say that it's more like a tinted moisturizer rather then a foundation in terms of how it applies. I would love to use this, however, L1, won't suit a fair skin tone. if you're NW20 in MAC this is the perfect colour match..not for me though. I hope that korres will create a wider color range in the future.
I use this fragrance most of the time. I like that it has a nice balance of fresh/sweet scent and that it lasts the whole day with just 1 spray. Great fragrance for day (more of a spring/summer fragrance though I use it year round). However, this is not an original scent and you might be able to find similar with less money.
Both me and my sister liked the fresh scent, it's not sweet at all. However, my mother, who is very sensitive to smells, always comments that the smell of Jasmin is artifical. I think you get a cheep scent for a quit expensive price.

I used this a year ago, it's one of those moisturizer that has no moisture! I didn't cause any skin irritations but my combo skin was flaky. Not a very good product for the price.
This mascara did very little for me. No volume, lengthens some. The only plus is that it doesn't clump.

This is a nice product if you're mainly looking for an oil controling product. For me it did not moisturise my skin enough and left me with dry spots over time. I'm thinking about trying the Crème Fraiche Light for more moisture.
I love the plum colour, perfect for autum/winter season. This is also so hydrating. I'm not a hugh fan of lipsticks but this tinted lip butter is a winner in my book, I always carry it with me to give an instant fresh colour on my lips.
This product is probably not for everyone, it's expensive and will not work on oily eyelids. For me it does the job of creating a blank canvas and a long lasting eye makeup. I see a huge difference when wearing this under my eye shadows and for those who experience snow storms where they live this will save your eye makeup! For reference I use the colour Cotton which is a porcelain coulour.
This concealer is kind of expensive but you get so much product (and it's super pigmented) that it will at least a year. I use SC-1 and I'm so happy to find that there is no problem with the color being to DARK which always seemed to happen to me. Even though I use this as an under eye concealer it's not perfect for the under eye area because of its waxy texture (LM makes one specific for the under eye area. ), however, if you heat the product up with your fingers it blends easier.
I find this brush to work fine for the purpose of applying mineral foundation. The brush did shed a bit but never more the one hair per use.
This is the best low end mascara that I've tried, it lengthens and adds some volume. This mascara is great if you have kind of short lashes/small eyes, however, if you have full lashes you might find the brush to small.
It's a beautiful product but mineral foundations isn't for me, I think I'm sensitve to some of the ingredients. If you're not this foundation gives great finnish and results.
