I thought this was going to be my holy grail foundation after 20 years of wearing Estee Lauder Double wear. It is not, but I am now on my second bottle. Let me tell you why I repurchased:1. Does not settle into pores2. Does not settle into fine lines and wrinkles 3. Able to find a color match perfectly even after oxidation.4. Makes skin look flawless and youthful5. Full coverage if using a brush6. Light weight on the skinCons:1. Is not 24 hour wear foundation. Barely 4 hours, I am oily2. Transfers to everything even with setting powder.3. Does not control oil even with mattifying primer and setting powder4. Expensive and not even 1 oz. This has a very light scent that is very fresh and does not irritate my skin. This does not settle into my pores and/or wrinkles even without a primer. I used wet sponge first and this just got soaked into the sponge. For the price of this foundation, I recommend using a brush. I also get better coverage using the brush, almost full coverage without looking heavy. I am oily, so I struggled to find a primer to control the oil and not have foundation shiny midday. Dr Jart pores no more has been the best to keep me matte, but oils still break through.I am color Bd40 which has nice yellow undertone. This does oxidize 1/2 shade darker. Make sure to shake the bottle before applying.I have tried match YSL primer, that helps with pores, but not for keeping me matte.I get so many compliments on my skin when I wear this foundation. It looks great for the first 4 hours and then the oils really start to come through. I live in Texas and this is mostly testing in summer where humidity is 60% and higher with temperatures way over 95, multiple days over 101. I will keep this for winter. I recently discovered Smashbox foundation and mixing these together for summer use has prolonged the wear.

I guess my 3 Star rating is a lot higher than the others on here so far, but I probably wouldn't buy this stuff again either. I have yellow undertones with olive skin and have found happiness with L'Oreal Pro Matte 104. I'm about an NC30. I bought this in B50 in the spring when I was looking for some sheer coverage that I could wear easily in daytime. I guess I just really wanted this product to work. It looks darker in the tube than it does on the skin, which is unusual for foundation. On my hand, B50 might seem too dark, but it seems to work ok with my complexion. PROS: sheer, light coverage.CONS: pills like crazy if you try to layer it over any other moisturizer (I've tried all kinds of different formulations and ingredients). Works best when it's applied to bare skin like a moisturizer, and therefore is not something that I'd want to use in winter when I need richer creams. This also makes it hard to spot-cover certain areas, therefore defeating the purpose. I wanted something sheer and light that I could just use on my cheeks, for example, but because of the way you have to apply this, I end up putting it over my whole face.It does look a bit shiny/greasy, but that can be managed with powder and blotting papers. It's August now and I'll probably just try to finish it so that it runs out and then move on. It's not a total dud and I'm glad that I bought it during a department store sale, but I don't think it's worth the money tbh. Lastly, the scent reminds me *a lot* of Paul Mitchell awapuhi shampoo! It's pretty mild and I'm ok with it.

Okay. Is this worth $40? Of course not. Do I care? Of course not! This is an absolutely gorgeous lipgloss/stain. I have it in #8Pink in Confidence, a soft, luminous pink and in #9Nude in Private, a peachy, natural MLBB color. Love them both. Tried #44, but it looks very muddy on. This formula is very unique in that it seems like a gloss, but doesn’t bleed at all and lasts quite well. Even when it’s worn off, it leaves a nice soft stain behind. Not to mention the beautiful tube it comes in!! If you want subtle, beautiful lips get this.

This scent is sweet, sensual and musky. It’s a beautiful scent but doesn’t last long on me at all. It’s not a pretty bottle, I would expect a more sexier looking bottle, especially coming from such a high end designer. Not worth the money at all.

I have tried better mascaras. Heard a lot of good things about this mascara but honestly wasn't wowed. The first time I used this mascara I was impressed but overtime it seems to have been less impressive. It's not as lengthening as I would like and doesn't give tons of volume. I like my lashes really long and I don't really feel like this gives me that wide eyed long lash look others mascaras such as chanel le volume and dior overcurl mascara. For the price expected more.
