Initially, I liked this mascara, thinking that the problems I had with clumping were user error and the result of a too-new mascara. I began wiping the brush with a tissue to remove excess product, but that only helps a bit. What I can say about it is that it doesn't flake or come off during the day. Moreover, I find it removes quite easily with a cotton pad soaked in Bioderma, so …Read more

My only problem with this foundation is that the color I first purchased was too light for me. Because it's so matte, I decided to keep using it and not return it for a darker color. I was always a 5.5 in the Armani foundations I had tried, so when the SA matched me to a 5.5, I didn't think twice. In general, I find that I am usually matched too light since the skin on the side of my …Read more

I will admit that I am a foundation junkie. I have a ton of high-end, expensive foundations including Tom Ford, which I bought recently.

Here's my problem: I am in my 60s, and while I really do not have any wrinkles on my face, I do have enlarged pores on my nose and chin. These drive me crazy. I have tried every pore minimizing primer on the market, and none has done much for …

I have tried many brow products, but this is far and away my favorite. For me, it's all about the wand. I have dark hair and brows, so I bought the Cara.

As I have gotten older, my brows have thinned, especially towards the tail. There is hair there, but it's very fine. I have tried the Benefit wand, but it was too gloppy, as was the Glossier one, which I do also like quite a …

This is my new favorite foundation, and I have put several others aside. I love the hydration and the coverage. I bought too dark a shade, which I will save for summer, and have been working with a sample that's one shade lighter, and I love it. I have been testing it against some Hourglass foundations, and there is no comparison for me. It absolutely does not sit in my pores, and my …Read more

I had the Pantone color typing done at Sephora, and the Marc Jacobs was one of the foundations that was supposedly my perfect color. I got a sample, and I'm really glad I didn't buy it. First time I used it, I used Laura Mercier moisturizing primer underneath. As I applied the foundation, it seemed to come off my face in little squiggles. Next time, I wore my Kate Somerville sun …Read more

After several weeks and several samples of the Acyl Glutathlone eye serum, I have to say that I see incredible results. I had definite hooding over my right eye, and that is practically gone. The surface of the eyelid has improved substantially. I don't think that I have ever used any cosmetic product that has given me the results that this product has. I am about to take the plunge and …Read more

This is my HG fragrance -- an explosion of rhubarb and the tingle of mint are the first notes. Thereafter, it is a dazzling citrus that lasts and lasts. This is my absolute favorite perfume and one that I can never be without. Love, love, love it.

I purchased this foundation on Monday, and I have been absolutely thrilled with it each time I wear it. Truly, it makes me seem pore-less, which is an incredible thing. THe shop where I purchased it is a small one in my town and has the advantage of having a window right by where the make-up is tried on, so for once I got an absolutely perfect color match. The only complaint I have is that the …Read more

I bought this powder foundation for a trip to Egypt last year because I knew that I needed something that would really stay on in the intense heat. Since I've been home this summer, it has been so hot that I have used it here. It is really the best foundation that I have for hot, sticky weather. I have Armani and Dior foundations that I love for other times during the year, but this …Read more
