Treatments -Paula's Choice - RESIST Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum
cathy711 11/6/2011 1:24:00 PM
Tried this entire line of Resist and my face(which is not sensitive usually) broken in in a red,bumpy rash...so much for Paula ranting and raving about other products that have irritants in them. I called the help line and told them that I didn't use a sunscreen and she told me that THAT'S reason my skin broke out. My skin became sensitve from the AHA and retinol..Funny, never happened with other AHA or retiniol products...

Shocked that this drug store brand product work this well. Substantially noticable change in lashes, and also the curl..Fantastic!!!
Hands down the best mascara. I've never had my lashes hold a curl with an eyelash curler until now. There's no smudging and since it's a tube mascara, I love the removal with warm water. Saves on eye makeup remover (an added bonus). The mascara was extremely buildable and gave great length and volume. I was using Chanel Inimitable for 30.00 and this doesn't even compare,it's so much better.. I have short straight lashes, and have never had the look I got with this mascara. I also tried the Fiberwig that Sephora sells, but this is half the price. I was all set on buying the Fiberwig when a SA told me to try the Clinque. So glad she did. I also like using a very moisturing eye cream. There is a major benefit to this kind of mascara..no raccoon eyes
I bought this hoping for a great foundation. I was so disappointed. The color was fine, but I had a problem with it lasting through the day. I have had much better luck with EL Resilience Cream Foundation in the compact. Excellent buildable coverage that lasted all day for me. Wished this worked better for me
I have rather resilient skin. I use strong glycolic products, exfoliate, you name it. I rarely breakout, but within hours of wearing this I was getting zits on my cheeks. I thought that maybe it was something else I was using so I took a break, let me skin clear up (which took 7-10 days) and tried it again. Shockingly, the same thing happened. There is obviously something in here that is causing me to break out. The finish is suberb, the colors are great. Very disappointed that this didn't work for me. Take a sample home from the store before you try it.
Crème -Estee Lauder - Resilience Lift Extreme Creme Compact Makeup

I tried this as I am a foundation junkie. I love the finish on this and it certainly lasts all day for me. I have combo skin and it gives a smooth flawless finish. I don't set it with powder since I prefer a slightly dewey look and still is lasts throughout the day. Color is a perfect match for my skin (Dawn).
Treatments -Chanel - Purete Ideale Serum Intense Refining Skin Complex

Have not seen any benefit with this product. It smells nice, goes on nice, but other than that, I'm not impressed. It is supposed to help the shine down and mattify. Chanel is not really noted for their skincare- the color line however is terrific.
Treatments -Alpha Hydrox - AHA Souffle 12 percent Glycolic AHA
cathy711 4/18/2007 8:50:00 PM
Great product. I would not recommend for anyone who has sensitive skin. My skin always looks terrific when I use this product. It is great for combo skin and for skin that can handle this AHA percentage. Love it.
Hands down the best toner I have ever used- and i've used them all. The scent is fantastic, it is so refreshing, yet right after I use it, my skin is so soft. Great job, Denise.
Blush -Kevyn Aucoin - The Creamy Moist Glow - Liquifuschia (Hot Pink)
cathy711 4/3/2007 7:48:00 PM
Terrific cream blush. As everyone can attest to, the color in the pot is scarey and puts you off a bit. Gives a great glow to the skin. The MA at Neiman's told me to use it before you set your face with powder. The glow comes within...who knows. All I know is that I do love the color. Clean, fresh look to my face
Foundations -Kevyn Aucoin - Liquid Airbrush Foundation
cathy711 4/3/2007 7:46:00 PM
Being a foundation junkie, I've tried them all. This one is lovely. Coverage is there, but your skin still shows through. For some who complain that it doesn't last, I use a rather light moisturizer being combo skin. It is a natural look with medium coverage. I find that it works best with a foundation brush.
Primer/ Corrector -Cle de Peau - Translucent Corrector for Pores [DISCONTINUED]
cathy711 3/23/2007 11:35:00 PM
Extremely pricey, but I must say I haven't used anything quite like it. It fills in the pores and it fantastic. The gal at the Cle de Peau counter told me to use a circular motion for the check area and a downward sweep when using on the nose. I've been doing it her way. It seems to work fine but who knows. I certainly use it when I want my makeup to be perfect. Way too expensive to use on a daily basis. Won't repurchase due to cost.
Concealers -Philosophy - Supernatural airbrushed color correctors
cathy711 3/23/2007 11:21:00 PM
I've tried them all. This one has fantastic coverage and lasts all day long. I've tried the Bobbi Brown corrector to cover dark circles and then the concealer. This one does it all. Reasonably priced and would definitely buy it again. The medium is the one I use. I know that the light is next to impossible to get, but QVC has it online to purchase.
