Moisturizers -Shiseido - White Lucent Brightening Moisturizing Emulsion

This product does not work well with my skin. Contrary to others who have commented on its ability as a moisturizer, I couldn't even use this as a moisturizer. It reacts badly to my skin, especially when I was trying to use it after a scrub (so my skin could absorb its "brightening" ingredients) and it inflamed my skin immediately. Therefore I don't have much to say about whether it does what it claims, because I haven't used it consistently for any period of time. I don't like the texture of it, as other people have said, it leaves the skin feeling slightly sticky. I'd say the only thing I like about this product is the scent and the packaging. To top it off, this product is extremely expensive. My poor boyfriend was definitely robbed by the saleslady :(

I got this product for free at an event and didn't really think about using it. However I started wearing nail polish a lot and thanks to this product, my cuticles remained healthy and moisturized even after contacting nail polish remover countless times. It smells great and the packaging is signature Burt's Bees- cute and simple.
Concealers -Estee Lauder - Ideal Light Brush-On Illuminator

Not the most ideal concealer for me. The packaging is gorgeous, but not that great in practicality. You twist the bottom to make a blob come out and you have to kind of even it out on your hand first or you might result in a line of the product on your face. I found the highlighter very pink but it did highlight the eves very well. Not sure if I would buy this again because of the price...
This foundation is beautiful on the skin. Without powder it gives a natural glow, a dewy look. It was easy to work with, and allowed some natural skin to come through. The product was also very comfortable and light, although perhaps in combination with Este Lauder's illuminator, makes my t-zone break out sometimes. This is my first foundation and I'm very happy with it, but as I haven't tried others I might venture towards other products because this is very expensive.
