read reviews on this foundation here and decided to give it a try. usually i bought revlon photo ready for fall and winter. i need something heavy to make my face look more alive, and lightweight foundations don't work on me in these seasons. anyway i found a perfect color for me (52 vanilla), pretty light but it looks very refreshing on me. i apply it with stippling brush buffing it into the skin. first hours after application i look awesome - fresh, alive, my skin has healthy glow. but after 3-4 hours my T-zone looks incredibly shiny. as i use mattifying sheets and powder after that all that healthy glow this foundation provided simply disappears. maybe i should try to use primer before application ...

after reading reviews on this concealer i ordered it from ebay in 'classic ivory'. i'm pretty pale, i have severe undereye bags and blue-purple circles. i use it after bourjois healthy mix serum foundation. it doesn't conceal blue circles, it only makes them look less obvious. my face definitely looks more fresh with this concealer. the brush is super useful. i just wish the concealer was a bit thicker, maybe it would conceal my circles better. anyway i'll buy iy again!

awesome! so happy that i read all the reviews and found this product! leaves my hair so beautifully shiny, very touchable and soft!would repurchase!
really like it in summer, sometimes use it as an eyeshadow i just wish it was not sooooo shimmery, if I apply too much I look like a disco ball
great pressed powder! have been using it for more than 5 years now, shade 2 and i love how natural it looks. i use it in spring and in autumn before my skin gets really dry and a bit patchy around my nose. that's why i can't use it in winter - it emphasizes flaky skin. but in spring and autumn when my skin behaves well i like the silky effect it gives to my skin. I apply it with a powder brush and wait for a minute before color shows on the skin. always repurchase
worst mascara i've ever tried. smudges like crazy in about 2-3 hours after it's applied, no matter how hot or cold it's outside. doesn't give any volume, length, lashes just look more black than they really are, that's the only thing this mascara does for me. and it's too expensive for this quality.
i've tried tons of mascaras, i guess we all did! and recently i decided to try this one due to nice reviews here on makeupalley. this mascara is simply amazing!!! my lashes are more than ordinary - not too long, not too thick, not too black and curled. so i hoped to find a mascara that would do SOMETHING to my lashes. i never thought any mascara would do EVERYTHING! it added length, i guess now my lashes are twice longer! it added color and now lashes are extremely black, they are thiсk but they don't look artificial like sticks. and lashes remain curled throughout the day which never happened with any other mascaras. i also love the packaging. it has some "click" mechanism so the mascara doesn't dry out because you didn't close it tight enough. i honestly don't know if the quality of the mascara differs from country to country. they say in Russia the wuality of makeup is lower. i don’t know because it bought this mascara at feelunique.com
