I absolutely love this foundation. I use warm sunbeige. It matches my skin tone perfectly in the winter. most definitely full coverage, & covered all imperfections.
Usually I'm not a fan of loose powders just because they can get really messy due to poor packaging, however estee lauder created the best container for loose powder. I think it covers imperfections well & has a perfect satin finish. The only thing I don't really like, is that it only comes in intensities. It doesn't have warm, neutral or cool undertones. I have very yellow/olive skin & medium depth, so I went with number 2 instensity. It's okay for the winter but this summer I'll need a much darker color. I would advise those with yellow/olive tones to use any other intensity but 2. Most of them are cool or neutral.

LOVE LOVE LOVE! I apply this product every night after cleansing with estee lauder cream cleanser & then chanel toning lotion. When i wake up the next morning my skintone is completely evened out, since sometimes I get pink in my cheeks. It helps my blemishes blend into my skin rather than having little red circles. It is perfect year round. In the winter it adds moisture & in the summer it controls oil & shine. It definitely neutralizes my skin type. I consider myself combination with oil in my t-zone, & since I'm 18, i still have problem areas. In the winter I get very dry, but if i use this every night, I never need to worry about even using a moisturizer, in the summer I'm very oily, but using this gives me a completely normal complexion! I will be using this product for the rest of my life. Cant wait to post pictures of my 90 year old self looking 52!
I finally found the lipstick shade I have been looking for! I wanted a nude lip color & after buying 7 different shades from several different brands I am so happy to have found belle de jour. I really wanted that perfect nude lip without having the concealer lip look happening. This shade is perfect if you're looking for a truely nude shade.It works great with my olive coloring. It's not a beige, white or pink undertone which i kept running into. Love the consistency too!
I recently bought the sheer matte formula in stromboli. The color matched my skin perfectly. I perfect medium olive tone which I have been looking for, for a while. Completely matched the description on the website. I wasn't wicked impressed with the consistency though. It was a little runny for my liking & it doesn't blend in as easily as I am used to. I have to take a little extra time to make sure it is 100% blended in to my skin. I usually like a medium-full coverage, this was definitely more medium coverage. I am purchasing the matching powder (beach) within the next week so I am sure that I will acheive the coverage I am looking for. Overall I do like this foundation & I will be purchasing again!
