an amazing product but too dark and yellowish. i bought it in the light shade
too expensive but works fantastic. not sure if i will repurchase. it's just a sponge to cost so much.

this stuff has an incredibly pigmented dark brown eyeshadow; i need a small amount on the brush to smoke out the crease. great for using as a liner, wet or dry. the color peach fuzz is very pretty, but it needs a base.

Brows -Too Faced - Brow Envy - Brow Shaping & Defining Kit

i was out of my regular matte eyeshadow that i used to fill in the brows for like 3 years or even more. first of all, this kit is really expensive. i should say that for me, i really like both brow powders (blonde and brunette), i mix them together to get the prefect shade, angled brush is surprisingly usable. the brow pensil is good and has a long staying power, but too dark for my eyebrows, so i use it as an eyeliner. wax is ok, but i can go without it or use a clear mascara. stencils and pinky highlighter - totally useless. if they sold the brow powders seprately or in duo kit, it would be more convenient, cheaper and useful. this packaging is too big.
this is my first ever chanel product and i love it. it's a medium to light coverage depending on application. smoothes out the skin, glides on like silk, no brush needed to blend it. it's amazing for the summer and spring. i leave it without a powder if i want a dewy look, or powder my t-zone only. stays on my face the whole day. i blot a couple times a day when it's very hot. once a day apply a powder. it stays on nicely the whole day without melting. the only thing that now i have flakey tip of the nose and when i look very close in the mirror i can see the foundation. but it's definitely a better alternative to heavy foundations.

this stuff has the same power as UDPP, but it's cheaper and in the tube. it's also available in the store which makes the life easier.
I love this! I found about it from Kandee Johnson's videos and i really wanted to get it. the skin is looking so fresh with this on. blending with fingers takes a little bit more time to blend it out seamlessly. so now i apply it with my sigma contour brush (which sheds haha) , but i find blending with a brush is much easier. it will last forever because you just need a tiniest amount. it's very expensive though - bought in on eBay for 29 USD.
Scrubs -Burt's Bees - Peach and Willowbark Deep Pore Scrub

i like this product although it's very scratchy and harsh for my face. I apply it very gently and remove it under the shower sheet of water. removal using fingers is adding an extra scratching and it's painful. i use this scrub not more than once a week. i think cleanser without these harsh grains would work miracles, it leaves the skin very smooth. i like the smell. i won't repurchase. i'd like to have a scrub that i could use on a daily basis, so i'm in search for a product with very tiny and gentle grains.
I got a sample size of this foundation and i used it for 5 days. you literally need a tiny amount to cover the whole face. I loved how it easily it glided on my skin like a smoothing cream, evening it out. the tone they gave me seemed a little bit too yellowish for me. I am still thinking about purchasing the full size. it did not control the oil well and it caked up a little on my forehead and chin so i had to blot it. however, it's perfect for my cheeks. it's very easy and fast to apply with fingers. using a brush it can look too heavy. it looks like skin and very natural and polished if using a small amount amount of product.
Primer/ Corrector -Lancome - TEINT MIRACLE INSTANT RETOUCH PEN

I love this product. it highlights the darkness and tiredness under the eyes. it's very easy to use for re-touches throughout the day. the only thing it's too expensive for 2.5 ml (45 USD in Latvia), in comparison with Dior's hydrating concealer in a tube - 10 ml (50 USD). I also find Dior is more hydrating but this stuff also does not crease, leaves the eye area very smooth. this will not hide severe dark circles, this is a light weight concealer. it looks very natural. i bought it because i wanted to try a pen concealer. but i'm not sure I will re-purchase because of the price. If you have really dark circles, it could be used over your corrector to hydrate and highlight.
i tried a sample. it has a heavy consistency and smells like niveas cheap body nourishing creme. I used the whole sample. this stuff does not control the oil. it made me very shiny.
I'm still testing this product. I tried and sample and actually very liked it so i got a full size product. it absorbs immediately and leaves my skin very matte like nobody's business and there's no shrinking feeling like other cremes for oily skin. but you may feel you need to apply a moisturizer over it. I use it only at my T-zone, and sometimes on my forehead only. I blot excess oil throughout the day but not too often. I feel my forehead is not as oily/greasy as without this product. but it also depends on the foundation. I am not sure if I will repurchase.
I love this product! use it almost every day since I got it. Since I have combination skin, I put a small amount right above the cheek bone in a C shape with my foundation brush or fingers. it's awesome looking when applied in the center slightly above the upper lip line. I'd love to try Luna or Shell. the packaging is OK, the only problem is it has to be sanitized with alcohol from time to time. I got it 1,5 years ago and hope it will last me for a very long time.
