Fresh, clean, aquatic, classic. Never overpowering, purely pleasant. Even if you accidentally put on too much, it's not disgusting, like with other perfumes. Even though I have many favorite scents, this is the only one I'd give a 5/5.
Lovely peachy-pink shade. I never really saw the point of blush, but my mom told me I looked too pale all the time (whatever like I live in Canada) so I finally just bought this (after checking reviews for the best blush on MUA!) and wow, i actually do look much more radiant and girly. I agree with alot of the other reviews I skimmed over- it doesn't contour very easily, but it never looks clown-like. There's a subtle sheen of glitter, but it's not tacky or anything. I tried other blushes, because I thought maybe I should expand my horizons, but I will always go back to Rose Silk! And I know the brush is sucky but I use it anyways hahahahah
Dark and mystical and warm, without being overpowering. Vanilla/almond-ish. My official fall/winter scent. There's really no other perfume like it. I think it's iconic. I only have one complaint- I didn't wear it all summer, so when I wore it for the first time in months, I thought someone literally peed in the bottle because it had this undertone of urine. But I googled this and it seems like it's common. I just had to swish it around a bit and it's getting better. Still, even with the slight cat-piss odor that arises after about a year, I love this scent, and it evokes so many good wintery memories.
I was always faithful to Clinique until I discovered Lancome Teint Miracle. Oh my god, it's so glowy and creamy and lightweight and perfect. Not cakey. It never looks orange in natural sunlight, even if you used a few layers! This can last me all day, but it's definitely not waterproof at all, and will start to come off with a slight swipe of a finger. It covers up redness flawlessly, and still lets my freckles show through so it looks natural! I realllllly hope they never stop making this foundation!
I really love the men's Ralph Lauren line, so I tried out the women's versions and was immediately attracted to 2. It was definitely the most popular of the Big Ponys at Sephora- all of the bottles and rollerballs were sold out. It's not too light or too heavy, and it's not too floral or too musky. It's sophisticated but still fun and girly. Not overpowering. I usually wear Dior Hypnotic Poison in the fall/winter and CK One or Light Blue in the summer, so I think Big Pony 2 is my official spring scent :)

I actually kind of like it! It really is silky and light, and the cucumber scent is kind of nice. The #315 Bamboo shade is a bit too pink...especially in the sunlight. Some people are saying this is more like a tinted moisturizer, but I find the coverage is pretty good. I haven't "broken out," but my skin isn't as clear as it used to be. However, I use a lot of products (Vitamin E capsules, zinc oxide, Bio-oil) so anyone could be the culprit. 3.5/5 And this really shouldn't affect my opinion on the product..but the little tube is so pretty :3
Liquid -Clinique - Redness Solutions Makeup SPF 15 with Probiotic Technology

Clinique Acne solutions makeup works better to cover redness than this stuff does. I find the finish too shiny and too orange.
I love this foundation, how it's got really good coverage (especially on redness) and the matte finish. But oh my god, it's sooo scary when you go out in natural sunlight. I have three shades- Alabaster (for winter), Ivory (spring and fall), and Neutral (summer) but no matter what, in sunlight it's an unnatural orangey-pink salmon color. Although the Even Better foundation is SO much oranger. It still remains my favorite foundation, but it's so expensive in Canada - 30$ a bottle. Luckily the little bottle lasts a long time. Coverage lasts all day and I never break out when I wear it. I'm so impressed that I actually wore it in the rain all day, no hood or umbrella, and it never washed off - I was just careful to never rub my face. I never have to retouch it...I apply it at about 6:30am and wash it off at about 8pm and it still looks great.
