Yuck!!! THis is a clumpy MESS that makes my lashes look like thick spider legs. I even tried the LP wand and it's stil just cheap and awful looking :( My search is till on
Liquid -La Prairie - Cellular Treatment Foundation, Satin Finish, SPF15

So far, this is perfection. I HATE foundation-really I do, but as I am nearing my 31st B-day I was becoming more insecure about my uneven skintone, hormonal breakouts, and the fine lines around my mouth :( Oddly, on "good skin days" Maybelline Pure is fantastic, but for "not so good skin days" my skin NEEDS THIS. It is so soft, smooth, and creamy my skin just soaks it up like good moisturizer and leaves it with a flawless glow. Medium coverage, very moisturizing, NOT for combo/oily skin. This is really designed for more mature skin. As a bonus-if you apply Guerlain Meteorites over this as a setting powder, VOILA!!! Gorgeousness!! My color : the lightest 1.0 (I wear the lightest shade in the Maybelline Pure, Stila 30 watts, and BB creamy concealor in ivory) UPDATE: I notice even in the most harsh daylight, my fine lines are completely airbrushed away! I am thrilled with my new HG foundation!
Perfect!! I couldn't ask for a better nude lippie! It's kinda pink, kinda beige, kinda nude-peach...My lips look HOT and very sophisticated. I LOVE wearing this with Crushed Hazelnut and a dab of Blushing face tint on the apples of my cheeks-such a polished look!
Well, It's O.K......I mean it is a nice gloss, but nothing spectacular. I noticed in MUA pics and on myself the color can go on kind of "patchy" as if the pigment isn't quite even. It is kind of like a browned-down gloss version of NARS dolce vita. I wouldn't repurchase this, I think this may be so hyped up that I had to have it regardless of testing it in person first.

I have been using this product for three weeks now-on my red, sensitive, deyhydrated and finely lined skin. So far so good!!! My skin has very little redness, my overall skintone is more even, and I discovered using this VERY sparingly is much better. Too much and it doesn't spread nicely or absorb quickly. I use this under my Decleor Vitaroma anti-aging emulsion three times a week and my skin is glowing! Will defintiely repurchase!
Average. It removes makeup, not much more and the consistency is very runny, making it hard to use. I still think DHC cleansing oil is better that this or Shu. Will not repurchase
It's an OK facial mist. Nothing special. It's very expensive and I think Origins makes a better facial spritz for the money
Treatments -Decleor - Aromessence Rose D'Orient for Reactive and Sensitive Skins

I think I am in the minority here. I have dry very sensitive skin and this came recommended to me. I used this for three weeks and my skin has never looked worse. I used to have pretty clear, rosey, but parched cheeks-now they are covered in cystic acne. I was thinking of switching to the Iris oil instead, but honestly, I am too afraid of throwing even more money away with this line. I was really hoping this would work as a more emollient night care line for me with the Iris baume. :/
There is nothing special about this. This is expensive, smells like old roses, feels like nothing more than a waxy moisturizer, and just doesn't provide any "priming" function whatsoever for my makeup. English Ideas is much better and never sank into my skin causing breakouts. I was looking for a new primer, not an unecessary stinky lotion.
This is lovely! A ripe peach color, much like a Shu Uemura lollishine lipstick, except it looks fantastic on cheeks! My lips and cheeks have a pinky peach flush. I love wearing this when I have no other makeup on or when expecting company quickly. It is the perfect touch of color to look natural after jumping out of the shower. Will defintitely repurchase this and other colors
Feels like "thick water" going on, spreads like room temp. butter, the color match is PERFECT, and my dry, sensitive acne prone skin looks luscious. WHY have I been spending a fortune on Shu, Prescriptives, Dior, etc...when this is so cheap and brilliant!!?? Will definitely re-buy . This is HG material for me and I HATE foundation.
