Disappointed after so much hype. Got this several months ago...Got the Neutral #1 palette and the colors are fab. But alas, there was not enough coverage for me (liked La Femme better), and it only got worse as the day wore on. It also started looking a bit greasy and I live in a dry climate and do not have oily skin. It now resides in my makeup graveyard (It takes me awhile to actually get rid of things just because I spent so much money on them and I might revisit them at some point). So sorry; such high hopes!
Phenomenal is what I have to say about this product!!! My daughter introduced me to this product and now that I've found it I NEVER want to be without it! My skin has never felt so comfortable or soft (even softer than a baby's behind)! It has what I consider a delightful fragrance and I just with that they had the hand cream available in stores. A stellar product IMHO.
Gels/Soaps -Dove - Moisturizing Body Wash - "Deep Moisture"

A wonderful product that goes a long way...I even use this as a face cleanser because I need that "soapy" feeling but don't like the dryness associated with most soaps. Dove Moisturizing body wash is thick and rich, has a pleasant fragrance, lathers very well and rinses clean. It leaves your skin soft and refreshed without any residue and without tautness. The fact that a VERY little amount goes a LONG way makes it a good value for the money.

I tried this cream after falling in love with the Ponds Clarant B3 and I have to say I love this just as much! I've tried literally hundreds of different creams over the years; from Avon to Clarins and everything in between but I have to say my skin looks and feels better than it has in years. Who would have guessed that such an inexpensive product could achieve such fantastic results? My eye area especially looks 70% better than it did just a few weeks ago. That's my main problem area so needless to say, I'm thrilled! The second ingredient on the list (not the 7th or 8th) is Lactic Acid that most beauty savvy gals know is wonderful for the skin. I wear it at night and use the Clarant B3 in the day. I live in a very arid climate but with this cream my skin feels soft and moist in the morning (and it doesn't leave a grease spot on my pillowcase). Young ladies, or ladies that live in a very humid climate who are interested in trying it should probably just use a bit less. The product does have a fairly strong fragrance so if you're very fragrance sensitive, I'd steer clear of this one. Personally, I rather like it and it's so blissfully simple to just apply one product rather than 3 or 4. I wanted a simpler routine with good results at a reasonable price and this fits the bill to a tee. It's just a big jar full of miracles! Sorry, I get excited when I find something that really works.
Concealers -Maybelline - Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Concealer

Love this concealer! Maybe my HG concealer and I've been searching for years. Use under eyes. Goes on like a dream, sets quickly (but not so quickly you don't have time to blend it), very lightweight feel, great coverage and wears like iron. For reference my most recent concealers have been double wear by Estee Lauder, Hi-Def by Graftobian and Revlon Colorstay Concealer. I'm 55, have dark eye circle issues (heredity) and wear eye cream everyday under my makeup.
