I agree with previous review. I will add that it looks as good in the am as it does in the pm without a touchup. I have used all foundations, from the most expensive SKII to Milani at CVS, and I am surpised by Elizabeth Ardens since I don't usually care for this brand. I was at the counter because I do love their ceramide perfect lipsticks and I sampled this foundation and went back the next day to purchase. I wear it over Chanel's new primer and that makes a very natural finish for me.

Great lipstick with full coverage. Lips look full. I have a few different colors but my favorite is Perfect Brick similar to Clinique's discontinued red drama but with better staying power. The perfect everyday red--needs very little touch up and is not very bright just a deep brick red. I have had to order from EA because my local Macy is always out of stock of this shade. If you like it, buy a couple

I can't even explain what is so great about this foundation. You put it on then look in the mirror throughout the day and you skin is flawless. Doesn't settle in lines. I am 56 with few lines and good skin but foundation tends to accentuate the lines I do have. This makeup doesn't. I have tried every foundation from LaPrairie to Milani. This is definitely a wow.
Coverage was good but I experienced the same reactions as others--broke out with red cysts on my forehead and cheek. I do have sensitive skin but this allergic reaction was different from anything I had experienced before. Returned it.
I have tried them all--Anastasia, Valerie of BH, Lancome, Chanel. The brunette color is perfect, brush is great, and lasts all day.
I have never liked lip gloss. But these lacquers are fabulous. Most glosses make your lipstick disappear in a short time. These lacquers last for hours. The best out there. If you can't touch up your lipstick every few hours, these lacquers are for you.

This brow product is wonderful. My eyebrows have thinned out and have some grays. I have tried everything. The powders don't cover the grays, and the tinted brow fixes don't fill in enough. I have reddish brown hair and thought the number 2 would be too dark. It is perfect. My brow looks more neutral and not some auburn color. The product thickens the hair, colors the grays and I find it last all day. If I am going out for the evening, I fill in first with the #2 pencil. Definitely will repurchase. I am surprised more people haven't discovered this product. I bought it based on the previous review.
I never quite got the results I wanted with self tanners. This stuff is amazing. I used it four times in the last seven days. I have a perfect tan--no uneveness at all. Love this. Because the results are subtle--I can gradually go darker or skip a couple of days.

Great self tanner--used it on my legs and arms and have a great bronze color. I haven't needed to apply another coat after three days. It is a bit on the dark side--pale skins should test first. Takes awhile to dry.
I love all the Milani products. I have a fair complexion but love vibrant colors. I think Milani has something for everyone. The colors rival department store choices. I wish it was carried in all CVS stores. The blushes and lipsticks are fabulous. Can't get enough of them. The foundations have a great consistency. Highly recommend this line to everyone.
My hair is the curliest it has ever been. The best product for curly hair. I have bought Ouidad and liked their products, but this, by far, has brought back my curl.
Beautiful lipstick and a great red with staying power. I find it similar to the new Clinique color surge. Long lasting and a vibrant red. Can't get much better than this.
Great color. Love all the Milani products. The quality is excellent. This is a rich brown. Makes a fabulous eyeliner when wet and lasts all day. Having trouble finding them. CVS carries them at a few locations and they are not well stocked. Walgreens doesn't sell them in my area. I buy as many as I can when I find them.
I love this mascara. When you remove it, it doesn't smear all over your face. It's not drying like waterproof mascaras, but stays in place until you remove it with just a swipe of a cotton ball and a little cleanser. For fabulous lashes I wear it over Shisedo's mascara base. It does not clump and more importantly it looks great and I don't have to worry ever about it smudging. The best mascara I have ever used. I have never used anything like it. I got mine on HSN.
