This is a really good product. The one I bought comes in a roller tube package, which is a little difficult to use, but better than a pour bottle nonetheless. I like to use it on the fine lines under my eyes at night - just dab a little to combat dryness and moisturizes just as well if not better than most eyecreams. It definitely feels thick (much thicker consistency than jojoba oil) but it will not cause you to clog or break out. Although I haven't experienced miracles yet from it, I'm very satisfied with the price and happy that I'm using something so natural and good for my skin.
I love this palette! I got it on a flight to Asia (love duty-free) so the price was well worth it for 4 Chanel e/s, 2 glosses, and 2 powder/cream pigments (I assume they are for lip and cheek). The e/s colors are neutral - the white/gold is an awesome highlighter and the other three colors are perfect for blending into a natural taupe or smokey eye effect. Fantastic basic colors. The glosses are very sheer and feel more like lip balm. Layered on top of the pigments, they let you play with the different effects of either pink or gold overtones. I really like the pigment texture as well. I've only tried the blue-ish red and it came out fantastic on my lips - I usually will never go near anything red! Everything feels light on the skin, not cakey at all. The case comes with two applicators, neither of which I've tried using. I'm sure I will one day, if I ever get stuck somewhere with just this compact and nothing else. Overall, this collection is fantastic. Get it if you can!

Absolutely the best powder foundation out there. Far more natural looking than BE and I love that it's good for you (or at least not bad for you) since its mineral makeup. Anyway, since some people are knocking off lippies because the sponge seems unsanitary, I wanted to at least let everyone know that the sponge part DOES come off and you can wash it and let it dry thoroughly without affecting the rest of the applicator! Just gently tug at it where it locks into the applicator - it works like those disposable microphone covers. I personally prefer to use my kabuki brush, but for those of you who dont, hopefully this helps!
recently, my 24 year-old oily/combination skin was breaking out and drying out at the same time, so i was thrilled when i saw advertisements for this product from lancome. after three days, my fine lines (from dryness) have already faded, my pimple scars are healing fast, and my pores even look smaller because the rest of my skin is more plump with moisture! definitely a must-have product for oily/combination skin, especially now that the weather is getting colder...
i LOVE this fragrance...it's become my staple. to give you an idea of my taste in perfumes - my favorites include marc jacobs, michael kors, vera wang, healing gardens sheer passion, and tommy girl. i also disagree that this fragrance "disappears" on your skin. on the contrary, i think it's so light and comfortable to wear that the scent becomes a part of you rather than overpowering you. just my 2 cents! :)
