Treatments (Eye) -StriVectin - SD Eye Concentrate for Wrinkles

While I'm writing this review, I am having a frozen bag over my left eye because it is swollen, red and burned! I used this cream for 2 weeks. The first week I felt that tingle some of you wrote about, but after 3 days, my left eye developed a bad crust and swollen. I didn't use this cream for a week and then came back to it, bad decision as it happened again. I wanted so much to love this cream, I really thought I found my HG as I am looking for an effective eye cream to reduce my puffiness, dark circles and wrinkles. I am 29, somewhat sensitive skin but Strivectin recommend this cream for all the ages so I not working for me too? So disappointed..
Highlighters -MAC - Magically Cool Liquid Powder - Truth & Light

I don't know what to think about this product, all the rave about it, it's like I'm reading about another powder! I've tried it only once or twice, but it gives me patches on my face, not a nice finish, not dewy not nothing... I've tried different brushes with the same result so I don't know...
I love this powder, it does not cake on your skin, it will stay on all day and it's perfect for summer days. I have this in NC40, as I am so tanned in the summer!
Tinted Moisturizer -Estee Lauder - Day Wear Sheer Tint Release SPF 15

I like this product for the summer, when all that foundation is too heavy on your skin. Also, this is a tint moisturiser, so you don't need any cream before using this BB. It has some grains but after rubbing them on your skin, they release a nice colour, subtle I must say. I mean, I have an yellow skin, NC20-25 and it is not that noticeable on my skin. It looks glowy, healthy, but not that pigmented. I've read some other comments about an orange tint, probably for those with fair skin... I will repurchase it as it is perfect for summer. Sometimes, during cold days, I use it before my foundation for that ultra coverage.
I love this powder! Gives a lovely finish, great for photographing. You also get allot of product that will last for ages, even though, you loose some of it while dusting so be careful how you use it. I have it in 25 peche clair, a nice peachy matte colour, that matches my skin perfectly.
I bought the Shu Uemura colorless face powder sheer after a friend of mine made me try hers and I was in love with the perfect finish of my foundation. However, I tried to use some of it under my eye area, bad mistake as it settled in my lines and I looked like a raccoon. So use it only where you you get the shine. I will repurchase for the nice look you get, as it photographs well. But after a day with in on, it does seem to cake a bit so I am not really sure...
I was in love with the Chanel Pro Lumiere that got discontinued so I tried the Vitalumiere one. First of all, I must say my skin is dry and Chanel foundation is perfect for this type of problem. This one has a medium coverage, it is very rich, not good at all for oily skin. I love the scent as well. But, I am not sure what to say about this new formula... I mean, I was expecting something more out of Chanel and I have no idea why they ended Pro Lumiere one when it was perfect? Anyway, back to this one. I am an NC25 usually, I have nr 30 for the summer, but it was a bad decision buying a darker colour for the hot days, I couldn't use it all, as it was sticky, runny because of all the heat. So use this one during the winter, is better. I will not repurchase, I didn't even finished it.
What more can I say that hasn't been said? I love this palette, it has great colours for my pale skin tone, vibrant and stay on all day if you use an eye primer.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Sin

I am in awe for this product! I have oily lids and I hated using eye shadow because of it. But now, after trying this primer, I don't know how I lived without it?:)) It is sparkly, you can use it on its own, or pop some colour on and it will stay all day long! Very happy with it, I will purchase one matte too:)
Concealers -By Terry - Touche Veloutee Highlighting Concealer
eileen08 1/24/2013 7:45:00 AM
I must have the worst dark circles in the world, reason why I've tried almost everything out there. Heard about By Terry for a while, decided to buy a month ago, despite it's expensive price. After all, it was Christmas:) I am conflicted about this product. I expected to illuminate my under eyes area, if not cover it entirely. It does illuminate, after purchasing the lightest colour in Porcelain, but is has poor coverage. So you might use some heavy concealer underneath, as I'm using the Benefit one, and then pop this on top. The thing I most love about this product is it's the first concealer that doesn't set in your wrinkles! I mean, all of the others make me look even more tired and old, am I'm only 28:)) But this one stay all day floating over your lines so it's perfect on this context. It does a bit of highlighting which is great, but I would've preferred more coverage... I believe the ones with less problems can say it is perfect, but I still want to find something better that has them all: coverage, illuminating, stay-out-of-lines power. Anyway, I would still purchase by Terry as a highlighter and hope my under eye area will improve with creams or surgery;))
I've been using this blush for 3 years now, it is my HG because it stays all day on without any smudge, has this lovely natural look and smells nice! The only think I'm not a fan of is the packaging, I would have preferred it in a round shape, because when it's about to finish, the corners remain and it's difficult to swipe them with the brush. Anyway, lovely product!
I just love this blush colour! It has a bronze shimmer in it that goes perfectly with the albatross one as a highlighter. It stays all day, it's not too much when applied, I simply adore it!
I've tried most of the foundations out there, Chanel, Nars, By Terry, Clinique, and many others but the one I love the most is Lancome Idole Ultra 24h. It has a great coverage, I have skin depigmentation, dark circles and some acne scars and this one covers all! It also leaves a dewy glow but nothing you can't cover with powder if you don't like it, I pretty much prefer a 3D dimension on my face:) I've used it all summer long and due to it's heaviness you might think it will drip or something like that, but it stays perfectly on! I also adore the smell... I know some of you hate it, but I can't imagine why? I wish for a perfume like that.. My skin is tern, olive like and I use number 035, perfect for me. I only have good things to say about this product!
I am in awe after using this product. I can't believe I didn't know about this years ago! I was struggling with my over the top matte make-up. I have to use powder over my foundation because it doesn't stay all day long, but I look so flat, with no dimension at all. After watching a pixiwoo tutorial, I had to try it and now I'm converted. I can't go out without it and it applies so easily on my cheekbones. It gives this dewy look I was so looking for! The thing I love the most is that it blends really well and is so versatile. Will totally buy it again!
I totally love this foundation! It's not my HG, but, it has a great coverage despite being so light on your face you wouldn't feel it! I am rating it 4 because it has no sheer in it... I really wanted a more glowy foundation. I tried like all the foundations out there suitable for my dry skin and this looks the best on my face. But I still need to find another one with good coverage, lightness and a good amount of sheerness.
