When I smelled the scent in one of the magazine strips, it lured me in. I immediately went out and purchased a bottle, but this is a bit too strong and masculine for me. I'm pretty much a gourmand kind of lady, so this just didn't make the cut. But to each his own, right?
Hands down one of the best foundations on the market. This does not change color as other's do, it last's until you take it off and there are so many different shades to match every skintone. Lancôme never ceases to amaze me with their cosmetics. Unlike no other for sure.
I just don't care for the finished look of this foundation. Although it feels luxurious on, the final results weren't what I expected. This foundation gave me a pasty look even though I used the correct shade for my skintone. I totally love Laura and what she has done for the cosmetic world, but I think it would be great if she'd give the formula another try. Her tinted moisturizer rocks, so maybe she'll hit it with her next foundation.
Absolutely LOVE this product! Shade is extremely universal, flattering most skintones, buffs on like a dream and plan on purchasing a backup just in case! Laura has done wonders for the beauty world. Many many star products from this line.
After applying this with a foundation brush, I didn't like the final results and so I used my fingers, which is the next best thing as it warms up the product, but this bombed for me either way. I just did not get the perfect flawless finish that I was looking for. This also seemed to settle into my pores even with a primer. This also oxidized after a few hours, not a good look. Going to stick with Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra or EL Doublewear instead. I still LOVE Mac, just not this foundation.
I always reach for chance when I want to smell fresh & sexy. This particular fragrance always brings on the compliments. It isn't expensive in that it last's a fairly long time on my skin. It even gets better as the day wears on. This one is for the sophistacted lady for sure.
Although I would purchase this shade again, it would only be in the summer when I self tan. I'm pretty fair and this shade is a tad strong . It creates a too harsh of a look even when you only use a tiny amount. Sometimes strong pigment isn't always the best.

It's not that I don't like this product, but the smell is awful! Although it does highlight well, I truly cannot take the smell of this. Maybe I was sent an expired one perhaps? For the price, they need to make sure all are fresh, if that's the issue.
I'm truly not a gloss kinda girl but this stuff taste so good! I know that it sounds weird, but hey, if I'm wearing a matte lippy, I normally just add a touch of this gloss in the center of my lip. The shades are to die for and again, if I have to wear gloss, it may as well taste as good as it looks!
Of course I'd buy this again! I think this mascara is the bomb for a drugstore brand. It amplfies my lashes, stays on without the dreaded flaking and the price is dirt cheap. I always have several of these in my cosmetic case.

Oh My God, does this smell like heaven. Got a gwp size tube and immeditately went out and purchased the full size. DH complimented me while coming out of the bathroom saying how lovely it smelled, as I apply this after showering. Ladies, try this if you want to smell sexy.

Bifacil is what I mostly use when I'm wearing waterproof makeup. This stuff takes it all off with ease, is refreshing and smells nice. Wished it didn't cost so much but I suppose you get what you pay for. You really don't need alot for each use, so I suppose I shouldn't complain. Another superstar from Lancome.
Love this because not only does it take away redness, it spreads like buttaa! I have issues with redness especially around my nose and so I always have one of these on hand for that issue. That's what makes this product so versatile. It's not only made for one thing. Only complaint is,, I wished it were a bit larger so that I wouldn't run out as fast.

Would I as a makeup artist use this on my clients? Absolutely. Intense color payoff, waterproof and durable. No racoon eyes 4 hours later. This one's a keeper. Good job ud.
Treatments -RoC - RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Filler

Absolutely a wonderful product for fighting wrinkles. Retinol is clinically proven to fight the signs of aging and for the price, it's extremely worth it. Although I wouldn't recommend using this everyday because of irritation from the retinol, this truly delivers. Gives high end department store brands a run for their money.
