I am glad I was able to rate this product on two different parts! First off - I love(d) this foundation! I am 50 with average skin, no age spots, no wrinkles or weird stuff going on. I don't like heavy makeup at all. I bought this on the recommendation of a friend. I put it on with a damp makeup sponge and It wore well all day and didn't look heavy or cakey. I liked the natural look and feel of it. That said - I WILL NOT BUY IT AGAIN! Not until L'Oreal fixes the issue with the pump. I bought a bottle and used it ONCE. The pump completely quit working. I thought it was a fluke and took it back for an exchange. I managed to use this bottle THREE times before the pump quit again. I e-mailed a complaint to the company and I could see that this was an ongoing issue for many people. It's a shame since I liked the product itself. I don't feel like "worrying over a foundation bottle" should be something I need to do, so....I'll be studying the boards here for a bit to see which direction to head next for foundation......Sigh.
Love this blush! I bought it in Peony after reading great reviews for it in Real Simple magazine. It is lightweight, goes on smoothly and looks very natural. I am completely sold on this. I'll probably buy it in another color just to switch up some and experiment. I don't see the need to try any other blush now!
I had high hopes for this product - especially since it's aimed for "older" women. I'm only 47, but always on the lookout for makeup geared to give my skin a boost and help me look fresh. This is just not a good product for me. True to its claim, it doesn't settle into my pores or fine lines --- which for me means it doesn't blend well and sits on my face like a mask! Not the best look. I have tried a wet sponge, dry sponge - no difference. Sigh. I waited too long to return it to the store so I will try another reviewer's hint to try it as an eye-makeup primer. I hope that works. :)

This was one of my "impulse purchases" while wandering through the mega-mart. I am very glad I got it! The application is easy as long as you don't use too much and apply it with long even strokes. Be sure to put regular moisturizer on your knees, ankles and toes first. (I only use this on my legs). This lotion dries quickly and gave me a great color! My only complaint is that it fades sort of patchy. I tend to apply every three or four days though so that's not been a big problem. I will buy this again!

I just bought this after searching for a nice gel,cream blush that wouldn't cost an arm and a leg. I can always rely on my Clinique gel blush, but wanted to try something different. I am glad I did! This goes on so smoothly and makes me look like I've been out walking. There is just the slightest shimmer which I like too. Powder blushes in the winter just don't do for me. I bought this in peach and will get the pinker one next just for variety. For those reviewers who are skittish about continually putting their fingers (and germs) in the pot, scoop some out with the edge of a nail file or something, then rinse it off each time. That's what I do.
I love this mascara! It is the least clumpy one I have used in a long time. I love the way it separates each lash. I don't mind that it doesn't make my lashes thicker. I like the longer more natural look - especially for daytime. This brand will be a staple in my daily makeup routine.
I love the results of this product, but...... it takes sooooooo long to dry! I put it on in the evening after I shower and sit around in my old bikini bottoms and a tshirt waiting for it to dry properly. I sit on a beach towel draped over the recliner too. By letting it dry about 45 minutes, I haven't had any staining on my pjs or sheets. I use that time to read, do my nails etc. This would NOT be the product to use in the morning or if you are in a hurry. I love the fact that I can check the results after about 30 minutes and see if I messed up anywhere. I should note that I only use this on my legs. As for the smell, I don't notice it after it dries unlike other products I've tried - i.e Jergens. I buy this every summer and have always been pleased.
