it does the job. no creasing after using it the whole day. i liked it more than urban decay primer potion. it is also more natural, no parabens! oh and pat it into your eyelid with your ring finger. don't attempt smearing it/blending it in.
Sunscreen -Unlisted Brand - Green Beaver 30 Sunscreen

EXTREMELY thick and greasy!! can't believe this product is getting good ratings. I have to wash my hands like 3 times to get this stuff off after applying. it will probably stain clothes.
accentuates every dry bit on your lips. leaves white cast. like rubbing a thick white chalk over them. horrible product! does NOT moisturize.
Lip Treatments -Burt's Bees - Nourishing Lip Balm with Mango Butter

I don't know why this has such high ratings. It's more moisturizing than their tinted balm, but within 10 minutes my lips are chapped and peeling. The only lip balm of theirs that seems to work is the replenishing. Granted, it smells nice (subtle) and feels velvety for the first 5 minutes.
great! good coverage, no caking, and nice shade. shade 1.1 was like nc20.
hard to spread so i end up putting more on my hair. my hair had buildup, an oily residue preventing bouncy looking hair, and my hair didn't have much slip after. i don't see what the hoopla is about. cost $14 in canada. My hair was dry and tangly after conditioning with this for 15 minutes. Probably because the THIRD ingredient is denatured alcohol, a drying one. Um yes, I am returning this. Not worth $14! NOTE: the formula is changed. Now it's chock full of a drying alcohol. Don't buy this.
Primer/ Corrector -Korres - Quercetin & Oak Antiageing Face Primer

An extremely overpriced moisturizer (around $70) than pills up and does not make makeup go on any smoother. Actually it makes application worse due to the pilling. I tried it on my eyes and that didn't do a thing either!
No matter how I apply this crap, it makes my face look horrible, all caked up. It has horrible lasting power. My boyfriend asked what was on my face--it looked textured! Umm, NO!
I am SO pleased with this sunscreen!! I wore BareMinerals over it and it looked good. It wasn't greasy, didn't ball up, didn't become oily, didn't accentuate dry patches, and didn't leave a white cast. Wheeee!!!
Conditioner -Unlisted Brand - Hugo Naturals-Red Tea and Ylang Ylang

The smell is good to me but my boyfriend doesn't like it. My hair was shiny, but dry and tangly (not the greatest slip, but a small amount) after using a regular amount of this. I used more, a large amount, and left it on my hair for an hour, and the result was slightly tangly and oily looking hair. Returning this.
Powder -Bare Escentuals - Original SPF 15 Foundation

I've tried so many liquid foundations and each one made my skin cake & flake. I thought this would make it even more pronounced, but to my surprise, I got less caking. I used toleriane ultra moisturizer, then a physical sunblock (I suggest Elta MD), then quercetin & oak primer by korres (letting each layer sit for 10-15 minutes because these products don't dry quickly -- maybe get a mineral-based primer like Hourglass - Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15 -- but this contains silicones if you're trying to avoid them). I also use Too Faced eye primer. It all looks great together. Update: slides off my face/separates after about 6 hours. I will try using a less thick and greasy sunblock--this happened with Lavanila Healthy Face sunblock and Rosaliac Intense AR lotion.
-goopy. way too thick. hard to spread. can't spread with wand. -accentuates every bit of dry skin on lips. wtf why is this a 4.3?
The NC20 was a good match as usual. Nice shade. Good staying power. But if you put this on your eyelids, it bunches up like cray cray. Definitely not suitable for eye area. Also, this, even layered four times, did NOT cover my blue undereye area or veins on the side of my forehead. It corrected some of the redness in my face, but that's it. You could still see my acne scars very much under this. Too sheer for me. Did not cake though.
Within 5-10 minutes, the color (I got hibiscus) is faded and my lips feel slightly drier than they were before applying this (though they look and feel lovely when I do put it on). After about an hour, my lips are so dry they flake up a bit--I constantly have to fix my lips by peeling off the dried skin or they look awful. Ugh. the pomegranate lip balm is def. better.
I like this, it's rich. It seems like a regular face moisturizer, not a mask. It has one silicone, dimethicone though.
