One of the few foundations I have repurchased and that says alot! This just beats Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua on so many levels for me. Better colour match, better finish, doesn't highlight uneven skin texture, better coverage, is about a third of the price. I buy it on echemist.co.uk for $AU11 with free postage! Seriously can not beat that. Unfortunately they only stock shades 51-53 and are frequently out of stock. But if you have patience, you will be rewarded with dewy natural finish skin, that just looks like you were naturally blessed. I wear shade 52 which is a perfect match for me (Mac nc20-25, Chanel B20, Revlon colorstay 180 sand beige is the exact same shade!) As for longevity, this is its only downfall. Looks good on me for about 5 hours, and then it starts to get a little shiny and begins to wear off. However I have started to mix this 50/50 with Revlon Colorstay and I have to say this combination makes some kick-ass foundation! It still looks natural but lasts a lot longer. Try it if you own these two foundations!
Highlighters -NARS - Highlighting Blush Powder in Albatross

This is a-mazing! I love the fact that it dances with light, making you glow in all the right places. I love the fact that it contains no chunks of glitter, but is full of luminosity. But, what I love about it most? The fact that every time I wear Albatross I look like I've fallen from the heavens.
This is one of the best cream blushes I've ever tried. It has a great slip to it, without that dreaded tackiness that some cream blushes tend to possess. This allows you to apply it wonderfully without worrying about messing up your foundation or concealer; a problem I've always seemed to have with other cream blushes, Mac blushcreme I'm looking at you. Onto the colour itself: it is an accurately described pink-nudey-brown shade, perfect for layering under pretty much any other blush colour, or on its own for a 'blush? me? no, this is just my natural colour' kind of look. The colour is pretty much identical Nars Douceur or , Mac's blushbaby.
This brush is HG material for me. I got it in the travel kit with the Luminous Silk foundation and didn't think too much of it at first. Boy was I too quick to judge. This is not your conventional foundation brush. First of all, it is tiny. It allows you to reach every crevice of your face without having to switch brushes or blend with your finger. It creates the most flawless, natural finish. The key to this brush is to use a small amount of product, and apply it in small feathering strokes. I highly recommend anyone interested in how to use this brush to watch this video from the Armani site: http://www.giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com/_us/_en/lookandtips/dress-code-for-face.aspx I've used this with GA foundations as well as other foundations (Maybelline Superstay 24 hr, Neutrogena healthy skin liquid makeup) and it has worked wonders for all. You can also use it to blend concealer over a larger area. The only downfall is that it has started to shed on me. Mind you, I have used this brush daily for the last 10 months and washed weekly. I am literally lost without this brush. Buy it!

Lips -Maybelline - Maybelline WetShine (flavored) lipstick

this stuff is not how it looks in ads and commercials. bullshit!!!! first of all it is not glossy or even shiny, second i bought diamonds and you can hardly see them and lastly the colour disapears after like 30 mnutes
this thickens my lashes by like, 300%. it adds so much volume and length but it does clump a bit.i have a trick though, apply layers really fast b4 they dry and it will smooth out about 80% of the clumps. i have to say,for a more natural look after it has dried, go over it with vaseline/gloss
this gloss is oh-so-glossy. i luv it's cute tube and how it has a brush aplicator. it smells good and lasts ages and is sooo moisturising
this lipstick smudged after 2 hours instead of 8 hours. the moisturising gloss dried out my lips and left them cracked and sore.not a good buy!!!!
this stuff is a ripoff considering the price and the size. though the actual product is quite good but revlon's is better and cheaper.
after i'd heard that gwenyth paltrow & jennifer aniston used this blush i could not resist. i had to try it and boy as it great!!! being a fan of cream blush i wasn't sure if I'd like it
Powder -Christian Dior - Diorskin- Fluid and Compact

this compo work fantasticly together!!!@#$%^&* leaves a slightly dewy affect while giving a matt look. confused? sorry i couldn't work out another way to write it.
this stuff is great! absolutely fantastic. I have oily skin and this refreshing gel makes it look less oily but more dewy. (oily looks unattractive while dewy looks healthy) besides why waste 15 minutes on a treadmill when you can have a pretty cheek with this gel. in summer i pop it in the fridge along with my cleansers, toners, moisurizers, eye creams and waxy pencils. does a great job of refreshing sun-burnt skin.
i have combination skin but this foundation made my skin look dry on the dry patches and shiny on my oily patches. the only good thing is the cute bottle it came in. now I pour my regular foundation (l'oreal ideal balance which is much cheaper and better) into the bottle.Hic. P.S I don't know why mena survera promotes this product coz it's crappy. and how come her skin looks so good????
