Ok, first I'd like to mention that I have really bad skin, huge pores, oily, dry and acne proned. I never dreamed that I would get COMPLIMENTS on my skin quality. "your skin is flawless, so smooth...". This stuff covers everything! When I wash my face at night I'm like : 'wow I had a pimple there?" , it's that good! You must be well moisturized and ex foliated thought. A little goes a long way. I believe it's worth the money. But a tip: don't buy the setting powder. If I remember right, It's even more expensive than the foundation. Instead I bought "NYC's Loose Translucent Face Powder" it's like under 5 bucks in Canada! I use a large powder brush to apply in a circular motion and blend,blend,blend paying special attention to the nose. Then your good to go! My last tip for those who love this foundation: when you can no longer squeeze any product out of the tube, cut the end of it off. I got at least an extra weeks worth!
If your looking for a inexpensive bronzer this product is great. It's not mat, and very shimmery which is great to highlight cheek bones. The powder is intensely pigmented, so a little bit goes a long way. Because of this, a larger blush brush would be more efficient than the tiny flattened brush provided. The compact does come with a large mirror, which is pretty nice for a product of this price range. The colors may also be used on their own, because of the striped pattern. The light beige one is great as a brow bone highlighter!
This is my favorite mascara. It's perfect for that false eyelash-look. It really separates, curls and elongates lashes. The wand is a little difficult to use, and requires some practice, but well worth it. The only real downside, is the fact that the product is a bit thick and tends to clump (this is also the reason it works so well :) . So I recommend only one coat.This mascara is definitely not for those who are looking for natural-looking lashes. Hope this helps!
