This foundation is HG status for me. My needs from a foundation are:
~perfect color match
~layers well over sunscreen
~conceals redness
~fills and smooths pores w out caking
~does not accentuate fine lines
~natural looking
~does not cause breakouts

This foundation does all this and more. I use a small(Shiseido)taklon concealer brush to spread the …

Picked this up on a whim without checking reviews. I have been looking for a nice, stable, decent coverage body sunscreen for a year since my Banana Boat Daily disappeared and my stockpile ran out. So many sunscreens put buzz words like 'dry touch' or 'clean' etc on the front label but their finish is a far cry from it. This one lives up to it's 'sheer touch' …Read more

egads no! I only wore this one day and it's a nightmare for contact lens wearers. Little pieces adhered to my lenses all day. Strangely, no undereye racoon shadow just these damn particles sprinkling themselves all day! Removal. also a PITA requiring a wash then a makeup remover application another wash and another makeup remover application. I would have no eyelashes left if I used this on …Read more

I need a good waterproof option for working out, but this was awful. In fact on a day when I didn't workout it already smudged under my eyes and I couldn't clean it off. It flaked like crazy at a workout. No no no. Also looks spiky and horrid on initial application. I was so irate I actually took the time to return it. Fie. No repurchase! : P

I love this primer! Up until I heard about it, Urban Decay Primer Potion was my HG in this department, but no more! One of the main things I am overjoyed about is the packaging or container it comes in. It's a squeezy tube that is super easy to control the amount of prodct coming out and also to squeeze out the last bit of product without much effort. Whereas the UDPP was designed by men …Read more

Well, a HG it ain't, but there are enough redeeming qualities that I might buy it again.
Firstly, the pros: the fragrance is very nice. It does dissipate rapidly after application, but I can smell it if I'm working out and it's not obnoxious. The hold is very good. Even on humid or actual rainy days, my hair style stays mostly intact. Also, it does seem to wash cleanly …

What a fantastic find! I had dreading having to buy another MUFE Aqua liner since it's $17 ,so I started looking for a drugstore option and after a couple of tries found it! This pencil stays on through workouts and super humid summer days- no racoon transfer to my under eye area. Very comparable to MUFE Aqua Eye. It applies smoothly without tugging and the smudger end is actually easier to …Read more

oh wow. I guess I thought MAC would make a typically undistinguished and forgettable department style fragrance, but I was so wrong about this one. I got this unsniffed in a swap and I was in love at first spritz. It's scent is very sensual and alluring, but not over the top. I like layering with a stronger vanilla during the day but it stands alone for evening. Really unique and beautiful …Read more

Aug/02/2009

I have been on the lookout for a mild cleanser that is modestly priced and doesn't react with my sunscreen when I try to remove it after working out. It's so strange that most of the lotion or creamy type cleansers I have tried(Cetaphil etc) randomly burn like fire and cause redness and discomfort after I use them. Plus my makeup(I wear makeup over sunscreen daily) is almost cemented to …Read more

I adore this product!! I was hoping there was a product that could add a little glow to my skin without looking obvious and this is it!! Finding the right brush to apply it was my biggest challenge. It is easy to overapply and accent lines rather than minimize if you apply too much product! Eep!
I tried a fan brush and a small eyeshadow blending brush but I found the best was a bronzer …
