This is not for oily or acne-prone skin. I think its excellent for dry/aging skin but every product I've used by oil of olay has broken me out.

This is perfect for everyday and shows up very nice and pigmented. I like this better than walking on eggshells. The cranberry color is gorgeous.
I liked this b/c it has uva/uva sunblock but it felt greasy and made my makeup foundation look ashy.
I love wearing this under my eye. I used to hate it alone and with the nc35 on top. but now that i use it along with my nc40 foundation on top, it looks very natural.
For some reason I used to like the volum' express in the falsies but now it doesn't do anything for me. So, i tried this one instead and it curled my lashes a bit better.
So far, this has been my favorite pressed powder to wear on top of my foundations. Its very sheer and doesn't mattify as much as i'd like, but its ok b/c my pro longwear is very drying. I like this and the blot powder as my setting powders.
The cremesheen formula feels better than the lustre and lasts longer. It also looks more made up, so I love the color, it looks simliar to my marquise d'sade but a bit more opaque and peach. I love it.

I really like how this is PH balanced and when i use it my foundation doesn't oxidize from the oils. It keeps my skin from getting sebum and dark which happens a lot with my tan complexion. Its a basic cleanser and I'll try the cleanser + makeup remover next time.

My skin is too oily for moisturizers and this is no exception. It has mica in it so it gives off sheen which women with dry skin or aging skin might like.
Makeup Brushes -Sonia Kashuk - Bent Eyeliner Brush

This eyeliner brush doesn't have enough bristles and is flimsy. The tip is too small to make a thick enough line. overall, i prefer an angled brush for gel pots.
This is pretty and looked good over any lipstick i wore it with and added a golden sheen to it. It goes on more purpley than it looks though so the shininess would look better for night time. wouldn't repurchase but i enjoyed it when i had it. nc40
Hair Color -Garnier - Nutrisse Permanent Creme Hair Color

I used Medium Golden Brown Chestnut and it came out a champagne brown without any reddish braziness like feria l'oreal or l'oreal preference. It left my hair soft and smells great. The color isn't that harsh which can be good if its your first time, but if you need heavy coverage or something drastic probably not the best. l'oreal preference would be better. I will continue to use and maybe use their highlighting as well. nc40
Cleansers -Boots - No 7 Beautifully Balanced Purifying Cleanser

Really great and keeps oily skin dry. This doesn't remove makeup but it get the dirt off. I didn't realize it contained parabens, so I might not repurchase, but if I didn't know I'd say this stuff is great.
I tried the sample for this and so far it lets my prolongwear foundation go on alot smoother. I started to get a bit of sheen after a while but very natural and compared to how drying the foundation is, it looked nice. I recommend this with very thick or long wearing foundation. edit: I think is too greasy to use on a daily basis, i'll try the VS primer with the sunscreen next time.
The serum is non-greasy and makes my frizzy hair more smooth. I like it better than the one i bought at visible changes and its cheaper. i like using the shampoo and conditioner with it.
