Liquid -Guerlain - 'Lingerie de Peau' Invisible Skin-Fusion Foundation

I am not impressed. I am a foundation junkie. I got this foundation as a gift. I was extremely excited to try it and only got disappointed. It's overly fragrance, which is the number one thing that is irritating to the skin. I also did not like there were only a few shades and my closest shade (02) was a little too light. I did like like it oxidized and color changed to match me a little more. Still I can't get use to the smell of it. I didn't think the formulation was any better than makeup forever's HD foundation.

How can you not love this stuff? I use it after I powder and it makes everything blend nicely together. It also give my skin a little glow and brings it back to life from any over powdering. It hasn't broken me out and I am on my second bottle. I also like that it sprays evenly and nicely, unlike Model in a Bottle which squirts insteads.

I love love LOVE this foundation. I don't usually use a light foundation but when I do, I reach for this one. It sets semi-matte and lasts all day long. It looks incredibly like skin. I also like that it is a pump applicator. The smell, like other high end products, smells wonderful. I love it!
Quite expensive for such a tiny amount. However, it does last all day on my checks. I love the gold reflects shimmer but I also love that it is not apparent on the skin. This color is perfect for my NC30 skin. I also love the packaging. I love the little mirror inside. It also opens pretty easily, unlike other little palettes.
I got the opportunity to try this product. When I first got it, I was impressed with the texture and the dewy iridescent finish. For the price though, it did not live up to its hype. Disappointing.
Treatments -Olay - Regenerist Micro-Sculpting SERUM

I wanted an alternative to my Hope is Not Enough Serum by Philosophy so I picked this up. I've been using it for a week and I noticed the light reflects in the serum. For those that say there is a glow to the skin, it seems like it because I think they put pigments in the serum. This doesn't bother much but there are some people who think the serum is really giving their skin the glow. The only thing beneficial about this serum is that it contains peptides, which can help promote collagen growth. I think its good for younger adults and not so much for older woman. Olay also has a Resurfacing Elixir which is more helpful for older aging woman, which contains a little bit of gycolic acid. This serum is also good to use as a light moisturizer for those that do not like a cream. It does not make you feel greasy and penetrates well into the skin.

I can already tell this stuff will last me forever. It is highly pigmented and stays put literally all day. It also dries fast.

PIGMENTED!!!! This stuff is so highly pigmented and literally lasts all day on your eyes. I tend to have oily lids but this sucker stayed put all day long. The color is also gorgeous. I love it!

I love the subtle color. It's not too much and has the perfect amount of shimmer. I have been using it everyday for work and school. It gives a beautiful glow and is wonderful to blend. The container is a little small but I do feel that you only use a little bit. I lvoe it.

I am surprised by the low reviews. I am a makeup junkie and love a good shine on my cheekbones. It is perfect for that. If you are using it all over the face then you are not using it properly. Use common sense! It is obviously too shimmery for all over the face. I do like that it is shimmery, not glittery. It also stays put all day. I just apply it to the highlight areas of my face and a little under my eyes. It's beautiful! The only thing I disliked was the brush. I just tossed it.
I love this foundation! It gives a good coverage without looking heavy. The formula reminds me of Makeup Forever's HD foundation but with a glow and a little more sheer. It's a beautiful foundation and definitely has a luxury feel to it. I find that I do need to set it since it runs on the shiny side. I am an NC30-35 in MAC and I use number 5.5.

I cannot stand the smell of this stuff. It smells like old strong perfume. The consistency is very thick and makes your face oily. I guess it is good for very dry skin. It does not contain ingredients that really benefit the skin besides being a lotion. It's advertised as light weight but I did not think it was.

This stuff smells amazing! I am unsure if it works or not but I use it to mix stuff. It's hydrating and definitely feels luxurious on the skin.
For the price, I don't know what there is to complain about. It works and its affordable. It's the cheapest dry shampoo available. The smell is also nice as well.

Pros: It seriously works. I just put it on before I go to bed and I wake up with super soft feet. Cons: It contains AHA so you must protect your feet from the sun after sun exposure (or you will burn). I also did not like the packaging. I would like to see it in a squirt tube so it is easier to use. It's also a little pricey.
