I tried this based on a blog I read somewhere about it's being useful for skin irritation. I'm a faithful Paula's Choice user but have some chronic low-level redness every day, I think due to retinol use and living in sunny Florida. Now I know I had it because this stuff turned my skin around! I began using it at night after my retinol/vit C mix and added it in the morning just …Read more

Liquid - Estée Lauder - Double Wear Light No SPF [DISCONTINUED]

Glad I got a sample -- with my usual sunscreen underneath I got no more oil control than Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless. There aren't a lot of color options but I'm a level 2 in this one. Even with my trusty Colorstay powder over it, I still get shine breakthrough in about 2 hours. This version lacks the formidable oil control and staying power of the original Double Wear. It …Read more

I like it! And for such a good price, it can't be beat! It wears pretty well -- I'm combination so I do get shine-through in about three hours (in Florida, so the humidity will kill anything). I'm used to blotting my face so that's not a big deal. Wears well, no scent, no alcohol, doesn't fade much or transfer all over the place. No irritation. Coverage on the sheer …Read more

Brows - L'Oreal Paris - Brow Stylist Plumper Brow Gel Mascara

A great dupe for Benefit's Gimme Brow, as the other reviewer noted. I like the fibers to "plump" my brows a bit since they've thinned a little, alas. Wears all day -- you really have to use remover to get rid of it -- and doesn't fade. Finish is a little hard but OK. Apply it sparingly! I find it best to go gently against the brow then lay them down with another …Read more

wears beautifully, even in Florida heat and "personal summers." As good as Chanel and a lot cheaper!

Goes on sheer on me and maybe I'm just cheap but it bothers me they don't throw in an applicator like Chanel or Dior. On me, the kicker is it's an exact dupe of Wet 'n Wild's Color Icon in Nutty! got that in Walgreen's for 99 cents and cannot tell the difference between it and the Nars. I actually think the WnW wears slightly better, even over primer

this stuff is amazing. I ordered a sample with some Shu eye makeup I bought because I use an Anessa sunblock and was having some trouble getting it all off (just like the label says). It's terrific here in muggy Florida weather and gets off everything including eye makeup without stripping my skin. There's a lot of unscientific hooey about mineral oil being "bad" for you …Read more
