Tinted Moisturizer -Christian Dior - hydra life pro-youth skin tint

I bought the lightest colour (number 1) and I find it almost too dark. My main complain with this product is that I find it really difficult to apply. It's quite sticky and dries fast on the skin. Also, I'm surprised to read so many good reviews on its hydrating side as for me, it really isn't enough and after 4 hours I can feel my skin unconfortable (too dry). And my pores just seem bigger. Overall very disappointed. Doesn't do the job !
I was first surprised how liquid this foundation is. Not very easy to apply. The coverage is medium-light, you can build it up if you want. What I really like is the color, perfect match with my skin (I bought 2.5), it makes it look really more uniform and I like that ! What I'm disappointed with is : it makes my pores appear bigger, the finish is a bit velvety and I usually prefer glowing finish, it dries my skin : after a couple of hours I feel it's unconfortable and it tends to become a bit cakey (and as a result not natural). So I've a mixed opinion on this product. I've found other foundations that I'm much more happy with (By Terry for example). Won't buy it again for sure.

This product didn't work at all for me. It's so cakey, it looks completly fake (horrible colour that turned grey on my skin) and makes me look much older as a result. I have put it in the bin after 3 days !
I've bought the NATURAL shade at Target and I really really like it. Very easy to apply and extremely natural results (healthy looking). I think I'll try a darker shade as this one is just a bit too neutral for me. I've tried Becca's cheek tints and Pixi's are so much easier to apply (and much less expensive of course).
Really nice feeling on the skin. It feels all soft and well hydrated during the day. My only negative point is the smell, it's light but still I really don't like it...

This is a great hydrating serum that leaves my skin with a nice fresh feeling. It hydrates it very well and I've used this product for a long time now, I can't live without it. I still add a moisturer on top to feel more confortable (mostly in winter). The packaging has changed now but the product remains the same. It's a fantastic product, for winter and summer.

This is the most horrible product I have ever tried I think ! It is so oily and I just hated the gel texture that leaves my face so greasy. I also couldn't put on any make-up as nothing would set on my skin. This product is complete rubbish !
Blush -Make Up For Ever - HD Microfinish Blush in #4 Walk of Shame

Great product and number 4 is a fantastic colour. No blue undertone. Only a very litttle amount is enough to make you look "alive". I mainly use it when I go out, it gives my cheeks a fresh lasting look, I love it. I've tried a cream blush from Illamasqua but was disappointed. I'll stick to Make Up For Ever without hesitating now.
Very disappointing if you look for volume. This mascara is OK for adding length but not volume for sure. Also, I find it quite difficult to apply as it doesn't "stick" on the lashes. You have to put 3-4 times to get a noticeable result. The positive point : it's very easy to remove. No need to waste your money on this mascara, it doesn't do its job !
Eye Shadow -Edward Bess - Ultra Luminous Eyeshadow

After reading a lot of excellent comments on EB, I decided to get one eye shadow, Intimate. Well, I'm quite disappointed... OK, the packaging is really nice and sleek but the eye shadow itself is nothing particular unfortunately. The color is nice but quite dark and not luminous at all on me (I have brown eyes). Also, it didn't stay the whole day. So I won't get any other for sure. I think some other brands offer much better quality (Mac for example).

A big disappointment for me ! Firstly, the smell is really strong, especially for the face, I really hate it. Secondly, the cream is so thick and difficult to apply. Then, even if I have a dry skin, I felt that it was just too much for my skin, it felt very unconfortable and I just wanted to remove it asap. The pot is very heavy and difficult to carry around if you travel. I tried it for one week and then gave it up for good !
I'm a bit disappointed by this mascara as I find it not easy to apply (very wet) and the colour is not very intense (I tried black). I think there are other mascaras much less expensive that do a much better job than this one (for example Revlon ones). Not worth the money !
I've tried so many foundations and I'm usually disappointed. But with Vitalumiere I've found what I need... at last ! It's easy to apply and my skin feels very confortable with it all day (good hydration too). It gives a nice natural glow that I love. As for the coverage, it's good but not fantastic. But for me, it's exactly what I want, so now I really can't do with it ! I'll buy again, for sure.
I have watermelon and guava and I LOVE them both ! Extremely easy to apply and what a nice fresh look ! I also like their smell. Excellent products, even if expensive.
Very disappointed again. The coverage is really too light, I would say almost inexistant... The texture is lovely though, it's fresh and I feel my skin well hydrated with it. I don't like the smell of it, it's really a strange one, not natural at all. Overall, I'm not convinced by this product. I think there are so many other much better products available out there ! Not worth investing in this one unfortunately....
