I really like the finish and color, I use the light, however I can only use this in the summer because the lightest is still a bit too dark for me in the winter. I use Marcelle in the winter. I like that it has spf 15 and feels moisturizing. Blurs imperfections. i do set this will Marcelle translucent powder. I would repurchase but i think this will last me all summer and by then its back to marcelle.
Are we all talking abouth the same product here, this is for the leave in conditioner spray. Well for me I LOVE THIS!!!! I have usually used some form of oil like moroccan oil or whatever but i was seriously getting sick of the smell of that and it weighed my hair down. I love the fresh scent of this herbal gro and it actually leaves my hair so full and so soft and shiny I love it! Istruggle with very dry hair and breaking but this has saved me from having to cut it all off.

First the smell, this smells like armpits. Second the staying power, maybe 5 minutes tops. And thankfully only that becuase the smell made me have nausea.
Foundations -Elizabeth Arden - bare perfection makeup
asunta 4/29/2013 10:14:00 AM
Thank god i bought this before reading so many negative reviews, i bought this on the weekend at a warehouse sale. I have yellow undertones and my beloved colorstay changed the formula so i went on the hunt. I have a hard time finding a color match. This foundation is a perfect match! Warm sunbeige which is very hard to find and the coverage is very nice.not streaky, not patchy, Not too heavy like the double wear. Im going back to the warehouse to pick up one more for a backup. I think this is discontinued in stores so i have to buy it here. Just my luck....
Lotions/ Creams -Neutrogena - Norwegian Formula Comfort Balm
asunta 4/28/2013 6:25:00 PM
I have this and its called comfort cream in Canada. Ive tried all kinds of moistuizers for my face, including my latest find cetaphil which i hated the waxy feel and pimples it left me with. Although this cream is meant for face and body i would prefer using it on my face as i suffer from dehydrated skin. I really havent used much or any neutrogena products in the past. Im not sure why, but when i came across this i had to try it. Its not expensive or fancy but i have to say this is great! it sinks right in no stinging no red face no pimples, just nice skin. will definately repurchase.
I just came back from a perfume warehouse sale, so many different perfumes i couldnt decide which to choose! And by the time I got around to this I dont think i could smell anything properly. I just loved the packaging, this came with a free powder and mini perfume. I really didnt know what to expect when I brought it home. Ok so I open the box and spray in just my wrists. OMG this is so strong! I usually wear chanel coco and Im used to the subtle powdery scent that lingers from that. Oscar smells older, more sophisticated. It smells like the scent from weddings or parties. When women walk by and i think oh thats smells expensive. It is starting to mix in with the chemistry in my body and I like it but for some reason its making me a little nauseous im not used to such a heavy scent, or maybe i need to apply with a lighter hand. Anywho i do like it but i have a feeling i wont be wearing this too often except for special occasions so i dont think i will buy this againg anytime soon. edit: as the day goes on im liking this more and more
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Homemade Vitamin C Serum
asunta 4/20/2013 9:29:00 PM
Ive been using vitamic C crystals mixed with distilled water for the past 3 weeks. I cant tell you what the percentage is or whatever but I just mix half a teaspoon in a little spray bottle with distilled water , spray it on my face in the morning, Then after it drys put on my sunscreen and bb cream. and replace every day. All I can say is WOW! Honestly i look better without makeup now. Redness is dramatically reduced and the overall texture of my skin is way nicer and smoother. I get lazy some days but apparantly I found out that vitamic C stays in the skin for over 2 days so its not really necessary to use this everyday.
Stays on beautifully over my bb cream but im having a hard time finding a color match, currently using a sample of the color bone. I cant compare to the original formula because i never tried it. I put on my bb cream followed by a damp sponge and a small amount of foundation. I think if you use too much of this is can created a mask or fake look. It does cover redness and doesnt crease but the price is a little steep.
I was a faithful user of revlon colorstay, sand beige. I did notice a difference the last time i purchased it but i didnt realize they changed the formula. Now its horrible! Def not worth $20! The coverage, texture, overall feeling has changed and I hate it so I went on the hunt. Based on good reviews i purchased this for $4.99 at Walmart. I picked up nude since the ivory looked pink and I have yellow undertones. This is fantastic! I actually love the texture its like a mousse thats why its so thick, I use a qtip and then dot my face and spread with a makeup brush. The light mousse texture, the colour i love it! What a steal. I do wear my Marcelle BB cream underneath for extra coverage. I will definately repurchase this. I love that it has no sunscreen so it doesnt leave any grey cast.
WHAT? THEY CHANGED THE FORMULA? NOOOOOOO!
Shampoo -Clairol - Herbal Essences Drama Clean refreshing shampoo
asunta 3/23/2013 9:41:00 PM
Im glad I tried this shampoo. My roots were getting so heavy and oily and this brought life back to my hair. I love the way my curls came to life after one use. This is not an everyday shampoo, im sure my fine hair would get very dry if used daily but to get rid of residue this is so good. My hair is shoulder lenght, fine, dry ends, and coloured. I use different products in my hair like serums and hairspray, mousse and moroccan oil. It was starting to look so dull. Im sure this would be great as a make up brush cleaner too. The conditioner for this is great too, light and moisturizing with a fresh scent. Edit: used my regular shampoo the next day and noticed it had a great boost from this treatment, definately something i will use at least once a month
I just tried a sample of this today and wow am I impressed. I was looking at the other reviews for this product and noticed women were using this to reduce spider viens but i dont think its meant for that and hence the reason it didnt work for them. In my case my cheeks and chin are so red that the skin around my eyes looks white! Not a pretty sight :( anywho I used this and now my skin looks so much more uniform. I havent bought the actual product yet and im hoping that its not a total flop. Sometimes the samples seem to work better than the actual product. I will review when Ive used the product for at least a month.
Crème -Cover Girl - Aqua Smooth Make-Up in Creamy Natural (# 720)
asunta 3/9/2013 2:42:00 PM
I bought this based on the reviews and watching you tube videos. I bought the buff because i have yellow undertones. Its ok, not better than revlon colorstay imo.I think you need to have amazing almost flawless skin for this to work well. I like the way it glides on but the colour has almost a greyish cast and the others would be way too pink. It doesnt cover fully, i still need to conceal and it lasts from morning till mid afternoon. And I still need to blot alot. The first time I wore it alone and it was too shiny, next I wore it with powder but I see alot of flakies. I will keep using for the winter as it is moisturizing. A little blush helps pick up color in my cheeks. I like the packaging too, its easy for touch ups, but I dont think i will repurchase
Treatments (Eye) -L'Oreal - Hydra-Nutrition Golden Balm Eye Moisturizer
asunta 3/1/2013 6:32:00 PM
I recieved this free with the purchase of the matching skin balm. The texture is creamy but thick so u have to pat very gently around the eye area, the scent is not overpowering. I didnt see any noticeable difference in the appearance of lines but I will say that after one week my lids looked very swollen, my eyes began to tear and get really red and I felt like I had allergies. I stopped using it for a month to give it a second try. Same reaction. This is not a winner for me. Will not repurchase
Cleansers -Ponds - bio-hydratante dual cleansing lotion
asunta 2/12/2013 1:41:00 PM
If I could find this product again I would definately buy it. I picked this up at winners and it works so good. I wear colorstay and its hard to remove, usually I use almond oil to remove but the ponds just cuts right through the makeup with a cotton pad and also removes eye makeup fast and without irritation. I do wash it all off with dove soap after and moisturize because it will leave a heavy oily film. But even if I use almond oil i remove with soap too. I just really like this cleanser.
