Very natural color, after 2 applications your skin starts to glow. Never streaky. One pump lets out alot of product so I use the excess on my neck which I usually neglect. I am very pleased with this!
Shampoo -Aveda - Black Malva Shampoo and Conditioner

For everyone like me with light to medium brown hair, Don't be scared to try this! Believe me i was and am so happy I did. To hear the name of the product "Black Malva" I thought this might be too dark or intense for me but alas, it is just right. Of course the longer you leave the product on, the darker it will be, but you can always wash it out. i don't use the shampoo, just the conditioner. I leave on for 2-3 minutes. Not only is the color rich and beautiful but the conditioner really leaves my hair silky and full of shine. i am a lifer with this, hopeful that it will never be discontinued. I do not have to get my hair colored as often now. Love it!
Crème -Maybelline - Instant Age Rewind Cream Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

Thank you Makeup alley community for reviewing this product! i am so pleased with it. i usually wear Prescriptives Flawless foundation in Vellum. i bought this in Creamy Natural, it is an exact match to my skin tone. My skin looks great and feels great! Very happy with this product and I think it is better than the $40 Prescriptives. (This is for the Creme not the liquid)
Visible results....that is what convinces me to shell out my hard earned money on skincare products. I have been duped before with other products promising results and never do. This product is a very rich moisturizer so probably not great for oilier skin. But my skin is very dry particularly in the winter and not only does this instantly quench but I think it makes my skin look younger, firmer, supple! I use this first followed by Spackle (another awesome product) and my skin has never looked more flawless!
I received a sample of this from Sephora and so far I love it! I have tried numerous primers in the past (Laura Mercier, BE, Smashbox and NV Perricone Ceramic skin) but this has worked the best for me. I normally have dry skin and most primers still left my skin needing more moisture and my skin flaked through out the day. I have no flakes with this and with it being winter time now, I am usually drier than ever. My makeup feels like I just applied it late in the day. My pores have never looked smaller! Very happy with this product and will be purchasing the full size.
Ok, I have tried a different concealer every time I need to buy more, have never found a great one....until now. SO far, of all I've tried, this one is stands out to me as the best. I like that the container is all-in-one, you dab on the concealer ( a little goes a long way) and then after it sets, brush a tiny bit of the powder( which is so conveniently attached to the jar) and then my undereyes look flawless! Will def buy again!
Wow, I read the reviews on this product and am very pleased with the outcome of using this wonderful conditioner! I have light brown hair and do get it highlighted every 6-8 weeks.....i wanted to go a little darker and make my highlights less blonde and more auburn or light brown.. I was hesitant to try this because I heard it did make hair darker and I have had hair disasters in the past..I left on for 3 minutes (the directions say 2-5 minutes or longer if you want darker results).....THIS WAS JUST PERFECT ! I highly recommend it not only as a beautiful auburny brown color but also as a conditioner, it made my hair shiny and full! I love it and will definitely buy again and again! Thanks AVEDA!
I love this cleanser. Great for my sensitive, dry skin. Agree with someone who said that this cleanser does not strip your skin of any moisture and doesn't leave your skin thirsting for moisturizer. Very satisfied!
I have extremely tight,dry skin in winter and this inexpensive night cream is by far the best for winter skin! Love it!
Treatments (Eye) -Mario Badescu - Hyaluronic Eye Cream

I received this also in a sample and so far, am loving it! I have very dry skin and this cream is extremely effective. A tad greasy, but most of the eye creams I have tried usually are. This does what it says it will, effectively moisturizes the eye area! Does not irritate my eyes. I have this on my Christmas wish list this year!
Moisturizers -Philosophy - Hope in a Jar - for all skin types

I absolutely love this moisturizer and so far all of the Philosophy products that I have used thus far. I have very dry skin and this works wonders and that's not even the dry/sensitive formula. I have no problem w/the scent, if anything IT DOESN'T STINK, just a little medicinal, but I have no complaints. I also have tried Hope in a Tube, eye and lip cream, and this is so far great also, a little greasy but what a difference it has made in firming up my eye area. Gonna be addicted to this one also. I haven't used the full blown microdelivery peel yet, but I do have the microdelivery mini-peel pads and so far I love the way it makes my skin baby soft and super smooth, it's not too harsh for my skin, I could really use it every day but so far just twice a week. Love all of the perfumes, too, just wish they would be a little stronger smelling, by 1-2 hours after putting them on...I can hardly smell them, too bad because they smell soooooo good. I still love them for an everyday light scent. I am totally hooked on everything Philosophy...and don't even get me started on all the wonderful scents of the body washes!!!!!!
