Wow, all 5 lippies, I took one off because of the price, it really does not worth that much. This product is especially good during series of laser treatment, when my skin needs a lots of moisture, plus a coating to protect the new skin. Along the way I discovered something that works just as good at a fraction of the price - Paula's Choice body butter. As I remembered this is about $70 …Read more

Blush - FACE atelier - Facade in Arabesque

Dec/04/2017

I don't care much about their foundation, but this product is something to rave about, I bought a sample for $1, in Arabesque. It is a silicon based product, if you are familiar with the Armani Face Fabric blush, it is about the same texture, but the difference stops here. This product really looks like a blush from within (I put a small dab on a palette, swooshed it with a brush and …Read more

I bought some samples due to the raves on youtube. It is not a bad foundation, yet not as exceptional as their allies on youtube claimed it is. The colour selection is the only thumb up I can give, I find a lot of the drug store foundation is just as good if not better than Face Atelier, plus about 1/3 to 1/4 of the price. I will not waste my money to buy the overpriced full size.

Laser treatment is no stranger to me, I must have at least 15 sessions at the doctor's office, each session has 200 "firing", that was 5 years ago and finally the melasma was pretty well gone except now it is a pinkish patch which I can live with. Of course I was skeptical with this Tria machine but found out it has a 60 day $$$ back guarantee, I jumped into it.
I started out …

Great product for the price.
I am NC30 and picked Chadonnay, no glitter, just a mild, believable glow.
Instead of putting on the face and blend, try blending it on the finger first and stamp it on areas to be highlighted. This is a cream stick formula, may not be suitable for oily people.

I got a 14 ml. trail size with other purchases. I've had good result with PC 15% Vitamin C except it always expired (oxidized) when I reached to half way rendering the rest ineffective.
I put it on a hour before bedtime, as Paula's mentioned on youtube, she used it all over her face, and I agreed. All over my oily T zone and both sides of the face, which is quite dry. The cream may …

I have been buying PC's products on & off for a long time, but this is the first item I will be sending it back.
A lot of PC's treatments share the common claim as this mask, but I simply cannot stand the feeling of this being left on the face overnight & get a good sleep.
I have dry skin with oily T zone, so I went a bit heavy on the dry area & sparingly on the …

This is supposed to be a replacement for the Silky Cream Foundation. Unlike the predecessor, this comes in deeper shades, up to O60. btw, mine is O30, this is a good fdn, good, not great, I find the discontinued Silky Cream has a quality that as the day wears on, the skin looks better in a luminous but not greasy way. I do not find this quality on the Radiant version, neither version did not …Read more

Obtained a 1 oz. size GWP, first ingredient is water, followed by ALCOHOL !!! I will never use, let alone pay such ridiculous $$$ on something that is damaging to my skin cells, not to mention those old school practice of adding fragrance in skin care. I'll save it for summer when I have bug-bites. I'll just stick with Paula's stuff.
btw, it smells exactly like the …

I bought 2 of their absolutely wonderful cream foundation & received a clutch with what appears like goodies inside.
One of which is a 6 ml of Le Serum that looks exactly like the full size version except smaller. A shimmering golden bottle wrapped with clear faceted acrylic, its a work of art.
That's where it ends, the serum, total piece of crap, I don't read or even …
