I LOVE this foundation!! Talk about an airbrush finish, and it stays that way ALL day! I'm wearing it in the photo above and with my skintone, I wear shade 060, deep natural ochre.
This is actually a review that encompasses two Aqua foundations, the Extreme and the regular. SO, the shades are very difficult! I bought the #3(beige clair)in the extreme and it was waaay too light for my skintone(see profile picture for reference) but I thought it was a pretty shade. I decided I would get a darker shade to mix with it to make it a better match(I also have to do this with the Armani foundations which have difficult shades), which led me to purchase the regular Aqua in Dore Natural(which is VERY dark, don't be fooled by color swatches provided by Guerlain!).I actually did a Google Image search on this foundation to pick the shades. So I use two small pumps of the #3 with about a 3/4 pump of the Dore. That makes it perfect! Let me tell you, this stuff lasts ALL day and looks beautiful ALL day!! I really don't even need to blot my face throughout the day or apply powder. I'll look in the mirror and think,"wow, this stuff is amazing"!.
Eye Shadow -Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencil in Rehab

Let me start this review by saying Urban Decay has the BEST eyeshadow pencils!!! Rehab is my absolute "go to" pencil! I ALWAYS use it as a shadow base for my L'oreal Infallible shadow in Bronzed Taupe. I swear, that shadow does not MOVE for a good 12-15 hours!! I also use it to line under my eyes as it's the perfect width and consistency. The price is pretty average for a "non-drugstore" brand, but I always get mine for alot less on Ebay. One problem I've had with UD pencils though, sometimes the colored "lead" portion is not attached to the rest of the pencil and moves around alot and wants to fall out(sharpening does not help). That would never deter me from repurchasing this amazing product!
This review is about the new holiday shade-"Reverie". I have to say that it's a gorgeous powder to look at: a perfect light apricot color. That being said, it has ALOT of shimmer in it! It's really not a powder you would want to wear on your face straight out of the container, BUT, I got a big plastic container and started pouring powders in:Armani translucent, Nars Eden,Sue Devitt in Great Sandy Desert THEN I added some of the Reverie, put the lid on and shook it up! Now I have a beautiful, WEARABLE powder that looks great on my light/medium skin with yellow undertones(see profile pic for reference). It adds a nice glow! SO, if you need face powder but can't afford to buy 2 different containers(one regular, one Reverie), I wouldn't buy this. If you CAN buy 2 (or you have a nice powder already), BUY IT!
