This foundation is amazing. It looks so natural and my dull, combination skin glows when I use this. It will last until I take it off. I never found a foundation that last longer than a few hours. I don't use any primer or powder to set it. It covers redness nicely, there is no greasy looking forehead ever, large pores are gone, doesn't cake up into fine lines and is also hydrating. This foundation takes care of all my problems and my skin looks so beautiful and healthy. I love it!
I,m new to Tarte, but I fell in love their lip glosses a few weeks ago. Since I'm doing an "I'm now 50" makeover I needed a new blush. I was looking for natural, some that lasts and hopefully makes me look 10 years younger...lol. I hoped for a nice, fresh look and this stain is just so perfect and beautiful. I have auburn brown hair and medium beige skin. It shows up beautifully, but I have to dab it on twice. This stain gives a natural flush to my cheeks and lasts throughout the day...and it does make my face look brighter and younger.
This is the best! I use it for over 20 years, and I tried once in a while others, but nothing compares to this one. I use it whenever my hair needs it, sometimes weekly, sometime only ones a month. A bottle last me well over a year. After using it my conditioner work better and my hair is back to being bouncy. Love that stuff.

I tried many hair dyes, but this was the worst. I used 7N, Hazelnut Blond which turned my light brown hair to a bright orange and the end, who were dry and damaged, turned green. And the greys are still there. I was hoping for a mild hair color because of the damaged ends and now all my hair is damaged. They feel and look like straw. I tried deep conditioning, everything. The conditioner in the package didn't helped. I have to go to the hair salon and see what they can do about the color without doing more damage.

I finally found my HG. On me the color is very beautiful. My lips have a berry color and I was always told to keep lipsticks in this shade. Lately I found this very boring and getting older I wanted some that looks "younger" but not girlish and still natural. This is exactly the color I was looking for. A pink, but not too much, with a hint of coral. Very flirty but not overdone. I only use two dots and rub it over my lips, it gives me enough color that lasts all day. The coat,that comes with it, keeps the lips moisturized, at least so far I have no issue with dry lips. This is also the first time I got compliments on my lip color. I hope they never continue this one. Just in case I have to stock up.

This balm is very moisturizing and the tint is just beautiful. It also has a spf. I tried so many lip balms, but they only help temporary, the next day my lips are all dry again. Not with this one. My lips are so soft now and I gave up on my bad habit licking them and drying my lips even more out. I also really love the tint. I use it with or without makeup, its like my new HG "lipstick" which also moisturizes and protects. The smell isn't all that bad, kinda herbal with citrus.

I will buy this moisturizer forever. It has great ingredients and my skin looks so much better after only 4 weeks. I have combination skin with very dry patches and a very oily T-Zone with enlarged pores. My pores are shrinking! I don't have much wrinkles, but the few around my eyes are less visible. I tried so many moisturizer but never saw any improvement other than moisturizing. It also balances my dry and oily skin. This moisturizer has several oils in it, like avocado and jojoba, but it doesn't leave my skin greasy looking. My skin looks hydrated and dewy... and younger. For the ingredients check their website, they are really amazing. I also use the day cream, which is wonderful, too. The packaging is nothing great, but I can live with that. It may keeps the price on the lower range.
I'm not impressed. My hair does have more volume with this, but is has no conditioning effect at all. My dry hair is still dry after using this. I could just use a moisturizing shampoo with the same result. I need some that conditions. I just started using Last Call from Beyond the Zone ones a week. So far it is much better.

This product works great for me. It gives my very fine, slight wavy hair nice waves and even curls and so much Volume!! It does not make my hair stiff at all. My hair stays soft and bouncy. Not sure if they changed the formula or some use too much? I only spray it lightly. You have to wait to the hair is almost dry for the waves and curls to show. Don't think you have to use more, because there isn't much of a wave when the hair is very damp. Just keep scrunching.
Hair Color -Revlon - Frost & Glow Highlighting Kit

This stuff is better than my salon highlight for which I paid a fortune. I have dark blond hair and used the Honey kit. The hook didn't worked so I used a crochet hook. It looks very natural blond, like the sun bleached it. Instead the conditioner I used aussies deep conditioner and left it on for 20 min. There is no dryness and my hair is soft and shiny.
I'm also reviewing the SOS Intensive Moisture Mask. It is blue, so I'm not sure we talking about the same mask. The mask is wonderful hydrating and my skin looks plump and radiant after I use it. I have used the hydrating mask from clarins bevor and this does exactly the same and more for a fraction of the price.
I only used it as a shampoo, because I have the shower oil that goes with it. It lathers well and still feels moisterizing. I didn't even used conditioner even that I have very dry ends from highlights. My hair smells wonderful and is so shiny. No dry hair ends anymore. I dried so much for my outgrowing hair. The one shampoo ist too heavy for my virgin hair, the other doesn't do any for my dry ends. This one did it. The shampoo contains coconut oil and Tiare flower. I only paid $2.50 for one and a second one was free. I didn't know it is a limited edition. I have to get me some more.

I'm using Beige Blond on my dark blond, greying hair and it covers the grey hair wonderful naturally looking. It looks like I have some highlights. It doesn't damage my hair at all. If any they look more shiny. I do leave it on for my hair for one hour. Because I only wash my hair every 4-5 days, using only conditioner in between, the color stays for about 4 weeks. I also used auburn bevor, even the box says not recommend for dark blonde. It looked great and I had so many compliments. The only problem was that I still have bleached hair ends from highlighting and the color was to bright there. But soon they're cut off I will be back to auburn.

My natur hair color is light brown with some grey in it. I used #111 white chocolade and my hair looks so wonderful. It isn't as white as on the picture ( I didn't wanted that anyway) but just a very natural blond. There is no brassiness, no yellow, no orange. All my friends asked me which hairdresser I used. They cannot believe I did it at home.
