I like this really much. I think it brightens my skin a bit, it also has a nice scent. I hate the glass bottle. I dropped it once on the floor and of course it went into pieces. Luckily this isn't too expensive. I will be repurchase when i've used all the other serums i have now. Good price, good product.
Nice peachy pink blush. Actually really similar to orgasm but without the glitters and a bit lighter. Good quality, have to be careful when applying so that you don't get too much. If i could decide now i wouldn't buy it because there are so many similar colours out there - this is not special. I think part of the attraction is the names. These blushes are really overhyped. I have three and yeah, they are good blushes but that's all. Not gonna buy a single one anymore.

I originally tried this out because the UDPP was packed really stupidly. That's changed now luckily. But going back to this, i think it's a good primer. Keeps e/s well in its place. I really have nothing bad to say about this. It's worth a try. I'll be buying a second one.

It smoothed my skin but my face was oily after few hours. But that's so with all the primers i've used so far. It seems to me nothing really helps controlling the oil but they can make your skin looking better. Less visible pores etc. Basically this was an okay primer but i really hated the slick, siliconey feeling it left. Won't be repurchasing.

I bought my first bottle some months ago. I've wanted to test this out for so long but because of the hefty pricetag, haven't. Anyway the scent is a bit grassy or medical. Kind of difficult to describe but it's not very strong. It glides on smoothly to the skin and absorbs easily. I feel that it's plumping up my skin a bit. Also perhaps it looks more dewy. I bought another bottle of it already but I'm not 100% sure if this is worth the money. Also i've only used half of the 30ml bottle but i decided to test it out thoroughly so that's why the new bottle. I do like this but im just not sure if i like it that much. After that another bottle im sure i've figured that out. I like the package and with that pipette it's easy to use. I've read many people say you only need like 2 drops but that is so not enough. And i don't think my face is that large or big that it'd reguire more :) Oh, one more thing. Doesn't make my skin brake out but there's no oils in this.

I love this serum! I've used so many bottles and i keep buying 2 at a time so i won't ra out of it. I feel this balances my skin and i won't break out that much than without this. It's really light and you only need a little. It soaks in nicely and doesn't feel sticky or anything. Also it doesn't make my break out which happens always very easily. I love this!
The smell is really interesting. Not good but not too horrible either. I've used this nearly a month now but so far i'm not quite sure of its benefits. I think my skin is a bit more brighter. I haven't noticed anything else so far. But the bottle i have is huge and you only need a little of it at a time so i think it'll last forever. That's why the price doesn't feel that bad. I really don't know if i'd buy another but i guess i just keep using this one for now and see if it does something more. My skin has been acting up lately but i don't think it's because of this since there's no oils in this product. The packaging is a bit difficult to use since i don't want to use it like a toner cos it's so expensive. Instead i just pour it a bit onto my hands before applying it to the face. A pump or something might be better.

Well this does absolutely nothing to my eyes. But it's great for refreshing and as a some sort of serum. I bought it to refresh my eye area and luckily i didn't have any more expectations towards it. I've tried once a bit similar product from bio-essence and it didn't do anything either. So i guess these kind of produts are of no use. And the price isn't that cheap here either.. like 15e. I think it's too much for a product that doesn't do anything.
I like these rubbery wands and of course i've never disappointed with MF mascaras so this worked well on me. Gave volume, separated and above all doesn't flake. I don't think i can say more about this. Simply a great mascara!
At some point this was nearly the cheapest mascara on the market, at least in here. I once had been staying over at friends place and forgot mascara and i had to go somewhere the next morning so i just grapped this in panic from store and was really pleasantly surprised to notice how good it was. Gives nice volume and separates moderately. This gave honestly awfully nice looking lashes! And the price is reasonable. Definately could buy again!
Eye Primer -NARS - Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base

The product itself is pretty good but UDPP and shadow insurance worked well too. I have quite oily lids so i need some primer. Although i like this stuff the package is just too big minus for me. I'm sure there will be tons of primer left and you can't get it out. Even the material is so hard it's hard to split. SO unless they change the package, i'll never buy this again. Ever.
I bought this in s202 tho i think s201 would have worked too. The colour is somehow really weird and looked sooo dark i was, again sure that it'd never look good on me. But it turned out to blend into my skin quite well. But another weird thing is im not sure if it conceals that well. I mean i apply it and i can see the the stuff coming out of the pen but when i blend i feel my under eye area looks as bad as before the product. So i'm not really sure if i like this or not. Consistency is good but it gets stuck on fine lines a bit, like practically all the concealers. I dunno if the lighter shade would work better for me but for now i'm so not gonna purchase another one!
Choosing a right colour was a bit of a challenge because i had to buy this online. They don't sell Laura Mercier in my country. I looked lots of photos and swatches from the net and finally chose it in cream ivory because soft ivory seemed to be wearing by really pale persons. So luckily cream ivory was a perfect match tho it looked awfully yellow. The foundation leaves really natural finish and keeps the oiliness away quite well. But of course i do need to to powder during the day. There isn't a foundation that wouln't require that! Overall i think this is a good foundation. I looked the ingredient list before buying so it doesn't break me out. All the same i don't understand the hype around this. It's a nice foundation but that's it. I still continue to search my hg one!
I got few samples from this when i purchased the cleanser. Firstly i did'nt like the scent. It's somehow really weird. Secondly i think it brightened my skin a bit but all in all it wasn't very special. I know i say that a lot but most of the toners eg. are quite similar. I don't know what i'm expecting from them. But because of the weird scent i wouldn't buy this. A part from that quite nice toner.
I mostly wanted to try this out because it's oil free. I break out from any kinds of oils immeadiately and sometimes finding a moisturizer that moisturizes enough is really difficult. The scent was weird. Much stronger than in the cleanser. Luckily it faided soon enough and wasn't that overpowering. I don't think it smells like mate at all like the name suggests. Anyway a good moisturizer but again, way too expensive. Once again it was my urge to continuously try new things out that drove me into this.
