I have sensitive skin with rosacea. My skin tone is nw15-20. I purchased this in shade light. I felt it was hard to apply, and took a little time smoothing and blending it out. The shade light was a little yellow for my skintone. After three days of using this my face broke out. At $39 dollars I took it back to Sephora.
I've been using the Blueberry Soy cleanser for two weeks, and so far I really like it. It smells like bluberries,and is a cream cleanser. It comes in a pump bottle. I have combination skin with rosacea, and this works just fine. My face feels soft and smooth. I've had no breakouts. There are so many products, that I would purchase samples on line because the products are expensive. I had a facial and purchased them at the spa.
I've used several cleansing oils, and I think this is my favorite. It's a little more watery than DHC and a few others, but that's what i like. Two pumps with dry hands on a dry face and all my makeup is removed. No irritation or breakouts with this cleansing. I've purchased over four bottles and will continue to buy it.

I'm always on the lookout for mascara that doesn't flake or smudge, well I think I've found it in Dior Blackout Mascara. I put it on early in the morning, and it stays till I take it off at night. There's no smudging or running. I makes your lashes appear longer with one coat. The brush is a tad to big, but I'll deal with it. I usally use a drugstore mascara ( covergirl or maybelline ), but I'll repurchase the Dior.
Well I've found my HG foundation. I have normal combination skin that's very sensitive. This foundation is slightly runny, but covers well . I"m fair with cool undertones and I wear #13. It matches perfect. It doesn't look mask like or accent my lines. I'll repurchase.

I have thin fine hair that's colored. I've used this everyday for two weeks, and think it does what it promises. My hair is tangle free, smooth, and shiney. The bottle is long and thin. How are you supposed to travel with this? We do travel so this is a problem for me. I think it also helps prevent my color from fading. overall I like the product.
I wanted to really like the cleansing oil, but it broke my face out. The texture was great, the smell was nice, and the price was right. But I couldn't use it every day. I liked the idea you could purchase it at a local Macy's. If only it didn't cause problems.
I bought this cleansing oil from Sephora. I really like the way it removes my long wearing makeup. I've tried several oils ( Boscia, Shu, Origins, Dhl ) Shu's my favorite, but expensive. I thought I would try Nude. Once I got passed the smell, it cleaned very well, and didn't dry out my face. I did find you need more of this oil, three or four pumps. The price is expensive considering you only get 3.4 oz. I'll keep looking for a cheaper cleansing oil in the mean time.
After telling the sale rep. I had combination skin she chose Sculpt. I had a very difficult time blending the foundation. It filled my pores, and looked like I had pits in my face. I've never had this happen before. I finally had to use a makeup sponge which took some of it off my face. I think it made my face look oily, and didn't last very long that day. I paid $65 and it's going back.

My hairdresser talked me into this product because of my baby fine, thin hair. I can't say I hate it or love it. It did add some fullness to my hair, but by evening my hair looks and feels a little greasy. I guess it's just my hair. I don't think I'll repurchase.
I've been reading the MUA hair board and since many people have been loving Kerastase,I thought I would try some. I became confused with all the products. So I found a Kerastase salon within driving distance. The Person was very helpful, and I purchased Bain 1. love this shampoo. I was having some hair lose and breakage, and this has helped along with the iment Anti-Usure treatment. I'm going back and have her look at the improvement. I'm going to purchase the Ciment leave in. I have very baby fine thin hair.

A friend at work told me about this cleanser because she knew I liked their makeup. I purchased it at Sephora, and the SA just raved about it. I used it that night, and wasn't impressed. The first thing was the smell, it made me gag. I agree it's hard to adjust the right amount of power to water. And worst of all it didn't remove all my makeup. It's going back to Sephora.

I can only use this foundation in the winter. It makes my face slightly oily. I've had no breakouts. I also found it hard to match my skintone. I'm very fair with pink undertones. The search continues for the perfect foundation.
love, love this product. I have fine thin hair, and I'm always worried when trying a new leave in conditioner. Well, this product is wonderful. It leaves my hair tangle free, and shiney. The best part it doesn't weigh my hair down. What more could I ask for? I'll purchase it again.

I thought I would save some money and try the spray gel. I have baby fine hair that's straight. I might save this for summer because it caused a lotof static electricity in my hair. I guess a lot of alcohol. I probably won't repurchase.
