I wear this in Y/O Real Champagne. Its my everyday foundation and works quite well for me. Quite sheer, but evens out my skin tone well. Though I am happy with it, I am interested in trying other brands after I finish this bottle -which may be a while since it has lasted me AGES so far. One of my complaints though, would be the packaging. Kinda user un-friendly..
The first time I used this I was pretty impressed with it. My hair certainly did look better and 'sleeker'. Smells great, the price is okay. I've been using this for a while now and will probably continue doing so.
I got this in a GWP, but have not used it even once! I don't know, but I just cannot stand this smell. x_X
Moisturizers -Biotherm - Hydra Detox Daily Moisturizing Lotion

Oh my gosh, I am completely in love with this biotherm face lotion!! It is a light blue lotion with a slight fragrance. I like the smell, though others may not. :) Not oily at ALL, but still provides great moisture. Since using it, my skin has not once felt dry, seems to be clearer and definitely feels and looks 100 times better. Though it is not exactly cheap, for me the results justify the price. This is the most perfect face moisturiser I have ever used and I will replace it when it's finished. There is still a lot left though :). Would definitely recommend.
Treatments -Clinique - Total Turnaround Visible Skin Renewer

Usually I am quite wary of Clinique products (especially skincare), but this stuff is GREAT. I have been using this every night (so far for about 1 month?)and I have noticed a definite improvement in my skin. It has made my face soo smooth and I had some small pores on my cheeks, which are pretty much gone. Feels great on.My skin looks so healthy after using this. You only need a small application everytime. I think it will last me quite a long time, but I will definitely repurchase this when I run out. A new staple.
Pressed Powders -Cover Girl - Fresh Look Pressed Powder ] [DISCONTINUED]

Bought this in 'Translucent Fair' when I was first starting out with make up. Was a great match for my skin and had a pretty silver packaging with a mirror. However, I found that it did not control shine too well for me, so I stopped using it. For the price though, it's good value.
A very girly fragrance, has pretty pink packaging. I actually use this alot, and though I've had it for quite a while, I still love it and it remains a favourite. Smells 'fruity' (I'm terrible at describing fragrances!). However, this may not be for everyone, as some people can't stand the 'sweet' scent of it. As for me, I would buy this again...though I wish it was more longer lasting once you've sprayed it.
Primer/ Corrector -Yves Saint Laurent - Touche Eclat (Radiant Touch)

I have dark undereye circles, so decided to try Touche Eclat. What can I say? Wow! This stuff is great! As the MA at YSL said to me: "it has a lightbulb effect on the skin". It does exactly that, and when I use it on my circles, they seem to disappear. -Even my friends noticed the difference, and thats really saying something! I also sometimes use a bit of it on my eyelid to 'lighten up' the area. Looks wonderful. My only complaint is while the gold tube packaging is certainly pretty, I would prefer it if I could see how much I have left of it! Though I've had it for 6 months so far, it has shown no signs of running out yet. :) I wouldn't really use this to cover blemishes, because it doesn't seem 'thick' enough. Overall, I am one happy customer :).
Scrubs -Origins - Never A Dull Moment Skin Brightening Facial Polisher
lockheart 6/17/2002 4:37:00 AM
I absolutely loved the smell of this, and it seemed like a good scrub to try (since I had been looking for one). I had heard great things about this, so was really looking forward to using it. The first time I used it, it made my skin really smooth and nice, so I kept using it. After a few more times though, it seemed to irritate my skin. Got a small rash on my cheek from it (I think?) and broke out from it. :( Though it smells divine, was not the scrub for me. One other thing I didn't like about it was the packaging. I used a small plastic scoop to get it out, but it's hard to not get water into the container while in the shower :/.
I bought this a while ago in 'Delicate' which is a soft pink with small gold sparkles through it. Though they're not exactly cheap, the packaging is gorgeous and it has a nice shimmery effect on my lips. Have used it plenty (I've touched the botton of the container!!) and always get compliments when I wear it. :)
This was just too harsh for my skin. Very drying, and made my skin flake. :( I thought this would work for me, since I have somewhat combination skin, but I guess not.
I was attracted by the ads and the pretty blue packaging. I wish I had saved my money, because this product was NOT worth it. Smudged really badly on me. Am disappointed, and would not recommend and would definitely not buy again.
I bought this eyeshadow in a pretty deep pink recently, when a MUFE opened up near me. So far,I am impressed with it. Has great staying power and has just enough sparkle. Would recommend. :)
After hearing so much about this blush, I had to go and see what all the fuss was about. Am I glad I did! On me, it gives me a slight flush, with a pretty (and subtle) gold sparkle effect. A really beautiful blush! Love it.
