Tinted Moisturizer -Fusion Beauty - Prime Results Tinted Moisturizer SPF15

I never liked the idea of the tinted moisturizer but this one is just great , I read the great reviews and the price was tempting so I tried it and I am glad I did. This gives a very smooth light coverage , hides imperfections, has 15 spf it makes my skin look so velvety flawless. I got this primer in caramel shade was worried it would be too dark for me , well I guess I was quite lucky cause this is perfect . I am NC 30 and 35 in summer and this shade just makes my complexion glow , I just love it.. I got this from amazon for 5 USD which is dirt cheap compared to the results you get .. After few weeks of using this , I would like to add that now I use it with only concealer to hide dark undereye circles and I need nothing else , I am no longer using a foundation and I will be stocking up on this cause it make my skin look so perfect I can't believe it, I don't quite understand why ?!! cause in the past when I used to wear light coverage foundations they never gave me the perfect result that this tinted moisturizer gives me !! amazing but I won't complain I will just stock up. one last thing it didn't break me out , which is also very rare with my acne prone complexion as I tried more products than i can remember which did.. so this is my HG primer, light covergae foundation, moisturizer , you name it , it is the product that i need night and day to look perfect , please don't discontinue it. Thanks!!
I have the night cream which is hands down th ebest age defying cream I have ever tried. If you have age spots and you need a facial skin care line to improve your skin's color and smoothness without any acne inducing oils this is it. My skin glows every time I use this. The night cream version is more effective than the day version. The only thing I hate aboout this product is that it does not come in a pump . I don't understand why ponds won't do that it will boost its sales like hell , this is a perfect product in all other aspects.

ok, for depuffing this is super , I put it at night and wake up with a much reduced puffiness in the morning than usual however, in terms of darkness or moisturizing this done nothing. The bad thing about this is that it balls up and causes makeup to be rubbed off etc. I gave it 4 for the excellent depuffing properties , packeging and nice scent.
One word "Heavinly" , this is how heaven would smell like to me .. sillage is outstanding too , i can smell myself even the next day ! what more could any one ask for more in a perfume . Only downside is it is expensive 1.7 ounnce is for 55 USD or even 60 depending on where you get it from.. If I find this on sale any time I would stoke up , yet throughout the last 20 years I never did!
i loved this perfume, warm and sexy however it has no sillage .. that is a real downside, never did any one smell it on me .. Gardenia is not so clear to , it is more of a citrus warmed down by must and white flower however the dominanate note is not gardenia ...

I definately agree with the reviewer "if it had less galbanum it would have been less headach inducing" . I used to love this perfume , actually it is the first perfume i ever bought when i was almost 13 years old. I used to love it but then at an older age I became too sesitive to it and it kind of gave me headach , wished it had more citrus or green and less galbanum. Anyways , it terms of staying power this is amazing , in terms of character it is definately not for the weak hearted , this is anything but neutral or ordinary and it is definately NOT SWEET!!! not it is fruity , nor i can consider it flowery !!! I wonder howcome this perfume is broken down into these notes on many websites. This is green, chypre and musky perfume. Kind of falls into the same cateogory as Alliage by estee lauder and maybe shalimar by Guerlain . Every now and then I can miss the semll of creation or like to smell it on someone else but I am not sure I can buy the big bottle anymore although it is being sold at quite reasonable prices at amazon but again I can't take all the time and day in day out. I have given it 4 lippies coz of my first memories of this and because this is not cheap and quite original as well as amazingly unique and warm if you can take it . Nowadays I am more into fresh stuff and that is why i can't get it however I can never give this perfume a bad review.
the best fragrance i have got in a very long time.. now if you want my personal opinion this is way undermarketed, not only that but wrongly marketed .. you see this is soooooooo beautiful, private , balanced, warm and fresh all at the same time, I would have marketed it alone and not as a uni sex perfume and i would have made it a signature perfume like escape, light blue etc.. I used to love the old CK , but this one i love far better , it is sweeter with a dry tone of vanilla or white musk or even both and top notes of probably sweet lemon /orange, anyways whatever it is the mix is great this is not an overwhelming smell yet you can smell yourself all day , i love a scent that doesn't make others uneasy coz it is too overpowering yet you can enjoy it all day , it is clean, warm, fresh , citrusy , sweet and stable.. price is always great coz i always find good offers on it
Liquid -Bourjois - Flower Perfection Youth Extension Foundation

This is the first bourjois foundation since a very very long time that works !!! , for my normal to oily skin it works great .. not only it makes my skin glow but it doesn't oxidize on my skin like my much loved favourite colorstay foundation by revlon which i have been using for the last .. well humm 10 years!! however, recently i started to feel a bit uncomfortable with the masky effect it gives me and want sthng that would illuminate my skin, I feel this one does! , anyways , i will update the review later after i have used it for some time, my skin is olive almost NC 35 and the best color match is 54 which is beige , it didnt break me out too which is great and i feel so far it doesn't rub off.. okay i am bringing this down to four lippies , this foundation after only two or three times of wearing started to give me dry patches , i guess coz we are in winter , my skin is not even dry , it is oily /combination so howcome this is happening ? , i agree with the above reviewer this is full coverage foundation which is good if you are going for a special occasion however on day to day basis it is a bit too much , i am really surprised it accenuates any flakes in my skin or dry patches even revlon color stay didnt do that for me , well i donno now i am not so fond of this , although i still like the matt finish and silkiness but my skin does look so great with it and it does rub off which is athng i hate ..
I am surprised by all the good reviews, this concealer is not at all what i thought , it accentuate fine lines and it creases. After it is set with like half an hour my eyes look terrible. the coverage is grea the color is too but i look so aged when i have it on!!! i really donno why.. my best concealer so far was pupa which was also in a tube but they discontinued it and now i can't find one formula which won't crease or make fine lines look so damn obvious and gets into them:( I love colorstay makeup by revlon though and i am using it for the time being as a concealer but i need sthng lighter for eye area , i am even thinking of getting ashade lighter from color stay and use it as a concealer!

The only product that worked for my under eye dark circles and id did reduce puffness hoever, it did take a fairly long time for me to see results and it came gradual so i didnt really notice except after using it with one month on daily basis. But after one month there were noticable results and the results lasted for few months after discontinuing usage. It did little i think if any for wrinkles but then i don't have much under my eyes or wround them. for me it did work for my problem areas which are dark circles and pufness and i will buy again.

after one week of using this it kind of clogged my pores or sthng , i am not quit sure what happened , it could be allergic reaction, my pores seemed more visible and my skin got irritated. I stopped using it for now , maybe cause we are in winter and there is a warning on it that some ppl can develop irritations from it specially in winter so i will leave it for now till we have warmer weather and try it again. however th enight and day cream of this line are perfect and never caused me irritations or broke me out and they gave me a glowing skin.
As a winter's fragrance this is great. it is a cheap version from naecisso rodriguez , it is the exact smell but with less staying power that is why i gave it only 4 lippies..
Now i have drifted away from this like 2 years ago but was reminded with it following my truely bad and inspiring experience with L'oreal kids tamer (detangling spray) .. the experience was so bad and i bought 3 bottles of which i have no clue what to do with now!! this experience made me recall how good this spray was in comparison. it used to detangle my daugghter's curly hair to the extent that i didn't sense much of a problem so now i realized there is a sizable problem with her curly hair after i finished 1/3 of loreal's bottle with a very slight improvement i will go back to mane n tale which detangleled her hair like magic with just few sprays. However, i have to say they need to work on the bottle design , as well as improve the scent if they did so , man they would definately see an improvement in their sales! dn't they have a marketing team or what?!!

Great eyeliner, this came to me quite unexpected. The sales person at the beauty store advised that this was pretty good but knowing sales ppl I didn't pay a lot of attention to what she said however, I got it cause I simply didn't find my favourite eyeliner at the time. Anyways, I used it over and over again and the performance surprised me so much , I actually baught this with neviea liquid pen eyeliner which was a total failure and ended up loving Pupa's for its ease of application, sharp striking black color and long wearability , really excellent, way to go PUPA!
Very bad product. lt dried out instantly , and now even if i place it upside down all the time , it is very difficult to put on .. not impressed at all..
