Liquid -Clarins - Skin Illusion Natural Radiance Foundation

I like this foundation for the following reasons: - it is light reflecting and radiance enhancing - provides good coverage which is lightweight, it doesn't look caked on - it lasts long, especially if you set it with powder - goes nicely with a little blusher
I got this product (along with two other ones) free with two clarins purchases which is good considering I got a 30ml tube free. I have very sensitive skin that is easily irritated but I found that this product was very gentle and effective with the little grains it has. - it gently buffed away my flaky skin around by nose and other places - left my skin feeling very soft - made my complexion more radiant Most of all, this product is so kind to skin and it is very effective. Furthermore, a little goes a long way! Definitely recommend this,
I think this is a good foundation worth buying for the following reasons: - it glides on well - you do not need to use concealer with it it lasts all day. i can honestly say i've never had to reapply it - it provides just the right amount of coverage to cover my redness / imperfections - it looks quite natural and not caked on - if you get it in your perfect shade you will never have a make-up line or mask effect again! - not drying however, it can emphasise facial hair above the lip! It also smells lovely, watermelon i think
This really is a great product that delivers results. I usually stick to premium make-up and so was a bit skeptical when I first bought it. I recently bought a chanel mascara that was crap and dried out very quickly but this one doesn't. It not only lengthens the lashes but it thickens and adds volume. I recommend using a lash comb to separate the lashes though after using it. At just over ten pounds it is a steal!
This is definitely a product worth investing it, This mascara volumizes, lengthens and uplifts your whole eye creating a false lash effect. It doesn't dry out easily and just looks great!! I never knew my lashes had the potential to be so long!
I really hate this product!! It dries out VERY quickly, doesn't lengthen lashes very well and so I felt robbed after buying it. I like benefit's ethos, staff and public face but i'm just not impressed with the products. It never exceeds my expectations.
Liquid -Clinique - Redness Solutions Makeup SPF 15 with Probiotic Technology

Overall I think this product is OK. When you try it on at a make-up counter the consultant uses lots of other redness combating products but when you use it at home it is not as good. Yes to a certain extent it reduces redness and covers it up well but I have quite a lot of redness, rosacea in fact and so I didn't think it gave the full coverage I needed. Its a good price for that it does but I question whether it is long lasting or not.
This product is delightful. I'm 18 with very dry and sensitive skin and this product suits me perfectly. It smells absolutely amazing and is very nice to apply. It has a rich luxurious texture and is thick in consistency so you only need a small amount. I love applying this product with a foundation brush because It makes for a smoother application. After using this product I no longer wake-up with tense, itchy skin. The only draw back to this product is the price. In pounds its about £44 which is quite a lot although its worth it. Another thing to note is that this product works very well when also used with the serum first.
I have such a love hate relationship with double wear as it has many benefits but also some draw backs. Overall, i think this is a good foundation for people wanting medium to heavy coverage. When applied with a sponge or foundation brush, it can create a radiant, flawless finish. I tend to have a lot of redness on my cheeks and nose and so to find a foundation that concealed this was great for me. You cannot even tell I have any redness when I wear it so it boosts my confidence greatly. People have commented how nice it looks on me, and it really does last long which makes it stand out from other good foundations that need to be reapplied. However, i have very dry skin and after using it for about 20 days, i have noticed my skin has got a drier and is appearing slightly flaky. This foundation is not for people with dry skin, it is for combination skin or oily skin. £25 is relatively expensive, but as i said, it does stay on for ages and stays in place well. Also, it contains SPF and so in pictures it can make you look pale but is good for sun protection. One other draw back is that it has a bad reputation for being very heavy and "industrial like". Make-up consultants have told me that it contains a lot of alcohol to help it stay in place and definitely isn't that natural or kind to skin. In fact a lot of people report break outs from using it and it you do not take it off at night it really is carnage for your skin and certainly gives you spots over night. Nonetheless, this is a great foundation worth buying if you want to achieve a flawless look. It is especially good for going out at night as it stays on well and you don't need to reapply it.

Overall I think this product is over rated. Despite being a massive YSL fan and buying most of my make-up from it, i find the product unexciting. It seems to continuously be advertised and described as an essential make-up must have, but i do not think it is amazing. Yes, it does do what it says, It highlights the face and i use it to brighten up my eyes. It is a nice product but £24 is a lot to pay for this product. I'm still to be amazed!!
tingling sensation was frankly uncomfortable, but it did make my lips look bigger. i like this product but i feel it only plumps lips temporarily
Liquid -Yves Saint Laurent - TEINT RESIST Long Wear Transfer Resistant Foundation

This is my favourite foundation and i cannot stop buying it, It transforms my skin instantly from dull, tried, red patches to silky smooth and flawless skin. My boyfriend repeatedly tells me how smooth my skin is when i have it on and numerous people have asked me what make it is. I'm totally in love with this foundation despite trying out other ones. I only downside to this product is the price - £28. I Find it lasts around 3/4 months.
This is possibly the best lipstick i have ever tried and purchased and i adore this product. I find it hard to find lipstick shades that suit me very well but this one is perfect for me and it seems to suit most people as well which is good. The colour stays impeccable which makes it stand out from other lipsticks. I think this lipstick is a very classy, sophisticated shade which is perfect for going out in the evening. This lipstick has excellent staying power and looks very elegant. When applied with lipliner its a dream! Strongly recommended this product!
I decided to buy this product after trying someone else's and after buying ysl foundation for so long, this seemed cheap! Overall this is an ok/good foundation but your skin can appear greasy or oily if you put too much on. It also slightly made me looked caked and you could tell i was wearing foundation.
This is an excellent moisturizer. It is a joy to apply and has a silky touch. I also have very dry skin but this moisturizer hydrated me throughout the day without feeling greasy. I would definitely buy it again. I think it's around £16 which is quite expensive, but i think its very worth the money.
