I am an nw 20 and selected 146 nude beige. I am really impressed with this foundation, I have tried many high end foundations and this one really delivers what I have been looking for. Medium to full coverage, but feels like your not wearing anything, no breakouts, long lasting.

I recently used sun in on my roots. My natural color is a 6 or 7, and my roots turned pumpkin orange, Hello Fall. I have my hair highlighted and was just trying to give myself some time between appts. I did a few strand tests with the champange fizz color, and I am very happy. It totally cancelled out the orange/red roots, plus it seems to add alot of shine. I do not have any grays, but will update on how long this color lasts.
This is OK, I am an nw20 and purchased buff in the combination/oily. I only have a few age spots and it does not cover them. My Stila illuminating foundation has more coverage. The only thing I do like is that my skin does not feel wet after application and it does not transfer onto clothing.
I love this! I apply on my eye lids and all around my eyes. I do not experience any creasing. It just brightens my eyes overall and the spf is an added bonus. I do not use much, maybe 1 click per eye.

I bought this based on the reviews. Thank you all! This brush is magical, it is so soft and really makes applying liquid foundation flawless IMO. I have the MAC 187 and this for me works better. It does not shed like my 187 and costs 1/3 of the price.
Primer/ Corrector -Yves Saint Laurent - Teint Parfait - Complexion Enhancer

I have this in #2 and 3. This is the only primer I use that keeps my foundation from sinking into my skin by noon in this humid summer we have been having in the NE. I use it on bare skin and then apply avene foundation creme compact with 50 spf. I have had no breakouts to date.
This isn't bad for the price. Even though I have light skin nw20, I need several swipes to use this as a blush. I was looking for something with a little shimmer and this does not deliver in that sense.
The only thing wrong with this pencil is that the tip breaks off even with gentle use. The color is great, blonde, but for the price I do not want to waste half of the product due to this malfnction.
Hair -Kerastase - Resistance Double Force hairspray

This is unlike any other spray I have used. I was very sceptical and purchased this on ebay. This spray holds style and delivers volume, but feels like there is nothing on your hair. No wonder it costs so much. If I can get it on ebay for under 20.00 I will continue to use it. If not I feel the l'oreal spray elnett is a close second to this.
I picked this up in watermelon on sale (thank god) at my local supermarket. The color on the tube looks like a bubble gum pink, but on my lips it is clear?? My lips have a light red pigment, maybe thats why. It does smell like watermelon thats why I gave it 3 stars + I will wear it over lipstick.
I bought this due to the reviews here. TY fellow MUAers for mentioning that this is a new formula. I love the texture of this new creme blush, not sticky at all and just glides on. The color is perfect for summer, and will last many summers as you do not need much if you are as fair as myself. I use a foundation brush and just swirl on the apples of my cheeks and top it off with blonde MSF.
This has been my signature fragrance for years. I think you either love it or hate it. I think fragrances do not work the same on all of us due to body chemistry. For myself I use the shower gel, lotion, powder and parfum, I don't use them to layer, it just depends on the temp outside. If you like a sexy feminine scent try this, you might love it as much as I do.
I am 49 yrs old and never tried this due to the negative reviews. The reveiws on Sephora for my age were very positive, so I purchased on Ebay for a fraction of the cost. I LOVE THIS FOUNDATION!!! I do not write many reviews, all I can say is, my skin glows and it covers the age spots I need it to.
My hair is fried!!!, I have tried so many products from high end to drug store. I used this for the first time today and my brillo hair was somewhat smooth and had some shine. I only used a tiny bit of oil and no other products after I did a CO wash. I will continue use and update my review. I gave this a 3 on price and packaging. Is it worth 38.00 and why a glass bottle, but if this magical oil can help repair my hair I will continue to use.
I really like this color. It works well with my complection and isn't too over the top for everyday. It's not as sticky as others and lasts a good amount of time.
