I have mixed feelings about this product because for $134 usd for 1.7 oz, I expect more than a jar - it's so unhygienic and the product degrades every time you open the jar and expose it to air. You also introduce bacteria if you put your fingers in the product. This should be in an airtight pump dispenser, and yes you can use those even for thick creams like this. So the packaging is total …Read more

Foundations - Lancôme - Skin Feels Good Skin Hydrating Skin Tint SPF 23

I got this after an MUA'er posted the most gorgeous pic of herself wearing this - her skin was even, glowing, and natural looking. Exactly what I was looking for! My skin is very dry and flaky, rosacean, sensitive and acne-prone. And very pale - a neutral (but blotchy) MAC N10-15. Right off the bat, this one's a bit of a bummer because:
1. There's no shade match for me - the …

I wish there were a "Maybe" option for the question "Would you buy it again?" because I'm not entirely sure this is doing much. I do know it isn't hurting, as my skin has been looking great lately but I've also been doing a few other beneficial things so you never know what's responsible.

Here's what I like about it:
- moisturizer …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Amplified Lipstick - Fast Play

I have been on the hunt for a dupe of the long-dc'd Nars lippie Masai - one of my absolute treasured faves from the oughts. To that end, I ordered Fast Play based only on social media images and comparisons. First off, it's not very similar to Masai, which has micro-glitter and can look a bit plummy. Fast Play is flatter/creamier, and much too brown for my skintone (N10-15 with rosacean …Read more

I don't get the love for this foundation at all - it's pretty much non-existent on my face and breaks down after a few hours. I knew the coverage would be sheer but this offers zero in terms of evening out my complexion. I have pale, rosacean, dry skin with some areas of large pores and minor spots. I knew I would have to cover my dark undereye circles and spots/pigmentation with a …Read more

This is probably a great product for anyone but me - I just can't seem to pull off the matte lip. If I did like the look in general, the things I would like about this one are:
- price is fair for generous amount of product, easily found at Walgreens and online
- very comfortable for a matte (does not cause peeling or suck all the moisture out of my lips)
- does not transfer at …

What a gorgeous, lovely product! I have tried approx 1200 sunscreens and this is one of the top 5 for sure. Background on me: my skin is very dry + flaky, sensitive/rosacean, acne-prone, product-reactive, and extremely sun-sensitive. I have been testing this for the past 4 months and it has become my daily ss for when I'm inside/at the office all day. (My other favorites are all-physical - …Read more

Due to the insane hot flashes I have been experiencing for the past six months, I have been on an antiperspirant search for The One and I have finally found my hg with this product. It's not perfect but it's the closest I've found and it leaves all the others I've tried in the dust. So what's so great about it, and how could it be even better?

Pros (in order of …

I have aging, bone-dry, flaky, rosacean, flaky, acne-prone skin and I am on a neverending quest for a natural-looking foundation that evens out my blotchy skin without causing pots or a rosacea flare. I have this in shade Fair 3 and it is bang-on perfect for my pale, neutral, N10-15 skin. This offers medium coverage (I don't find it to be buildable as it cakes + highlights lines and flakes …Read more

Skincare - Face - Drunk Elephant - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil

Overpriced dud, returned it after two weeks because it sat on the surface of my skin and never absorbed. I like the fact that this contains no fragrance, and it did not cause any issues for my sensitive, rosacean, acne-prone, dry/flaky aging skin. In general facial oils don't work well for me - historically they haven't ever helped with my dryness or flakes. I was willing to try this …Read more
