Another Holy Grail here! I am 28 so the only lines I have are under my eyes and every other foundation cakes in them and makes them stand out, but not this one! I normally use colorstay and I was suprised and how long age defying stays on and looks GOOD by the end of the day instead of looking cakey. It also looks alot more natural than the colorstay and has a nice creamy texture. If I want to go out after work I just reapply and I look nice instead of like I'm wearing too much makeup. I have acne scars so I am always consious of coverage and although this foundation is sheer, it stays put and covers nicely. I agree with others on the bottle design, a pump version would be great. Hopefully come summer this product will stand up to the great rating I gave it for winter.

I am 28 so I have oily and acne prone skin as well as formation of wrinkles and this stuff works wonders. It has closed my pores and unlike other cleansers I have used it gets rid of ALL my makeup, even the all day wear foundation. The consistency is thick and needs a bit of water to lather up but a little bit goes a long way. Just don't get this stuff in your eyes! It stings!
I love this lipliner. I use the netrual shade and it blends with every lippy I own no matter what brand. It goes on smooth and creats soft natural looking lines, I can even use it without lipstick and just a bit of lipbalm.

Although it is expensive, I love this stuff (buy off ebay). I have oily acne prone skin and this moisturiser with sunscreen glides on without clogging my pores. It makes a great base for my foundation and keeps my skin feeling moisturised all day. The packaging makes it easy to get the last drop out of it and a little bit goes a long way. I've been using this for about 4 months now and love it.

For some reason this shadow applied dry seems to rub off my eyelids when I blink! And its full of shimmer!! When applied wet it goes ok. I don't think I'll buy it again though.

This is the best concealer ever! It covers up my acne without inflaming it and stays put all day. I have minor lines under my eyes along with dark circles and it covers both without clogging in the lines. Glides on smooth. A+ !
I don't know if this is doing anything for my skin! I am only 28 and this is for more mature skin but there is no nightcream for 20's, only for acne or mature. After two weeks it did make my skin feel softer but didn't do much for the line on my neck. However when I did get an acne break out it seemed to make it worse.

The one I buy in Australia comes in a small squeeze tube. I think maybe some people are applying too much cream. You only need a tiny amount otherwise you end up with white cream all over you face :) BTW don't get it in your eyebrows! its hard to remove. I was suss that all it did was put a white cream over my eyes but after using it for atleast 3 weeks I have noticed a nice improvement in my dark circles. Not much of a line eraser but the skin does feel and appear smooth. I will keep buying it until I find a better brand. Of all the eye creams I have tried, this is the first one to actually work.
great coverage without looking thick and I love how it turns to powder, giving you coverage without cakeness. very smooth and easy to blend into neck without a "line". Its the best cheap foundation I have come across so far. downside - its still on by 5pm but only if you don't touch your face! Rub your nose and your makeup is off Bob. It was also shiny on me by 3pm (applied at 7am) but a little bit of very light dabbing helped. Not the best coverage without foundation underneath unless you don't have many imperfections. I carry round a bottle because its great to reapply to go out after work and look like you just put makeup on. I will keep buying it but am about to test the loreal version.
