I think this stuff does help a bit with redness - not a TON, but a bit, for sure. It kinda gives you just a more even, slightly less red look. Every time I dig it out and use it, I'm always a bit shocked & surprised at how nice it make my face looks (I should use it every day!). If you're really trying to camouflage redness, try the NYX Primer (the green color corrector one) …Read more

I like this polish KINDA, but I can't get around that it just seems like something my mom would've worn in the 80's (no offense, Mom!). And I am now a middle-aged woman myself, but it still just seems to be too "matronly" for my liking. I know this type of shade is making it's comeback in polish - what's old is new again - but I can't wrap my head around …Read more

This is for the green primer... I think this is GREAT for counter-acting redness in your skin tone! It worked awesome for me. I have combo/dry 'reactive' skin (heat, cold, embarrassment, etc.). I use it over my regular moisturizer, pretty much as a primer before foundation. It's light feeling, feels slightly moisturizing, but to me, doesn't feel silicone-y (which …Read more

This is a GREAT cleanser! I've been using a trial size that came in my Ipsy bag. It's lasted about 1 month. I've been amazed at how soft and smooth my skin has been feeling every single day - almost like I JUST exfoliated it or something (but I didn't!). It's completely non-irritating, very mild scent, a little goes really far and a great price. My skin is sensitive …Read more

I really, REALLY love this mascara!! Haven't been impressed with any mascaras for a looong time. This separates , holds curl, doesn't clump, the black is really black, doesn't flake or smudge yet washes off so easily. I love the wand. I have kinda smallish eyes and average lashes. This creates alot of "oomph" and u can do multiple coats without it getting clumpy …Read more

I'm shocked by how much I really, really like this! I hardly every buy Cover Girl products (not sure why exactly?). I've used high-end (Chanel, NARS) and drugstore foundations (Neutrogena Healthy Skin used to be my go to, lately it's Bourjois Serum Foundation) but decided to try this (decent reviews on MUA) as SOMETIMES, I wonder if my Bourjois is breaking me out just a LITTLE …Read more

I generally like Patchouli incense-y based scents and so bought some of this without trying it first, based on reviews. Sorry, but YUCK. It reminds me of Emeraude from the 70's - which when I went to read reviews on that to see if people were comparing the two, read that many think of Emeraude as a poor womans' version of Shalimar. Now, I LIKE Shalimar, alot. Maybe cause it reminds …Read more

Illusion d'Ombre Eyeshadow in the shade - Illusoire: I LOVE this shadow and I rarely say this! Everytime I use it, I swear to myself that I should use it everyday, but I'm even too lazy to apply this (and it's pretty simple to apply) on certain days and want a "clean" look on other days. This shade is that perfect mix of taupe/purple/grey that is impossible to pin down …Read more
