Received a sample, loved it and then bought the biggest bottle I could find ( $159 including taxes. Gasp!). The problem is that the fragrance virtually disappears within 15 minutes. As a test I wore it to my fragrance free workplace and nobody noticed. It's really too bad as the fragrance is lovely when it is first applied. However I am left with the lingering feeling that I …Read more

This is the only estee lauder mascara I have tried . It was very expensive and it didn't do anything flattering to my eyelashes other than not clumping. I could have gotten the same result from a much less expensive brand. This mascara initially had a pleasant fragrance which is unusual for mascaras and the mascara …Read more

I set out to purchase a concealer to help with the bags under my eyes that have formed over the last year due to lack of sleep. I didn't want to spend a lot of money as I remember not having much luck with concealers in the past. I bought 2 shades lighter than my skin tone and applied it only to the thin shadow below the eye bag. I used …Read more

Wandered into Sephora with my brazilian marido to pick up some unrelated product when he spotted this colour ( to my horror) and enthusiastically encouraged me to try it on. None of my Canadian friends would be caught dead in this colour, which is essentially an in your face med-dark purple.We tend to stick to reds and nudes around here. But my husband was so cute that I decided to be a …Read more

I was given a sample of this to try as I was looking for a primer for very dry skin that doesn't accentuate my wrinkles. I applied it after using vivierskin serum 20 vitamin C, followed by Just the Goods face lotion. Yes, my skin is that dry! I let this sit on my face for about 10 minutes before applying foundation.

I used it with Revlon Colorstay whipped creme makeup …

This product works perfectly for me. I bought it on recommendation of a Shoppers Drug Mart sales lady. I was looking for something light and moisturizing. The colour (04) is perfect for my skin tone and it stays on all day without primer. As another commenter stated, it is illuminating and brightening which I absolutely love. The fragrance is very nice in my opinion. The thing that …Read more

I was given a sample to try as a replacement for CLAIRNS Super Restorative Tinted Cream which I am currently using.The Sales Lady gave me Light/Medium even though I am never a light colour in anything. However, she assured me this was my correct colour.

There was enough sample to test it out twice. The first time I used it without primer. It felt strange to put white gritty …
