Blush - Yves Saint Laurent - Babydoll Kiss & Blush Lips & Cheeks (All Shades)

5.0

Feb/07/2018

Currently it's my favorite blush (It does not work for me as a lipstick - a bit too drying). I have it in number 9 Rose Epicurien but it's a bit too cool for me, so I'll repurchase in a different color but I absolutely love how it performs as a blush. It's easy to blend, it's quite pigmented (on my fair skin anyway) so I have to be really careful not to overapply. It …Read more

Lipstick - Smashbox - Be Legendary Lipstick (All Shades)

Feb/07/2018

These are good lipsticks (I have three: Famous - nice nude peach, Primrose - great everyday dusty rose and Fig - deep berry) but they are not excellent. The performance varies shade by shade. Primrose applies evenly and nicely but Famous and Fig apply patchy so I have to prime my lips first with a balm. They look a little bit dry (without making lips feel dry, though). Nice but will not …Read more

Crème - By Terry - Sheer Expert Perfecting Fluid Foundation

5.0

Feb/07/2018

This is skin in a tube. Period. It applies beautifully. It's like a whipped cream texture that completely and seamlessly blends into my skin. I have it in the lightest shade 1 and it matches me perfectly (I have very light skin). The smell is a bit too strong at first but it dissipates after some time. It stays on nicely. I apply in the morning and don't have to think about it the whole …Read more

I have it in number 6 Passionnee. The color is unique. It ranges from coral to mauve depending on the lighting. The center color is light pink-coral. It is very pigmented. I have fair skin, so I have to use a very light hand when applying it. I apply it on top of a liquid foundation and it applies like a dream. It looks like skin, blends perfectly. It looks like the flush I have after an intense …Read more

Liquid - Giorgio Armani - Lasting Silk UV Foundation SPF20

Sep/10/2016

Stop the search! This is the best foundation I have ever used. It looks like skin. Period. It is so natural, easy to blend with my fingers, lasts until I remove it. I don't feel it on my skin, it doesn't clog pores, does not crease or settle into fine lines, it does not emphasize pores. I have fair skin and number 4.5 is a bit darker than I need, so next time I'll pick up number 4 …Read more

It is the best powder blush I've ever put on my fair skin. I love how it applies, love the fact that I can keep applying it and it won't turn me into an overdone doll. As I said, my skin is very fair (most brands don't even offer a foundation light enough for me) and this blush is perfect. Not only does it show up on me but I actually managed to over-apply it once (but it also can …Read more

Toners - Dior - gentle toning lotion with velvet peony extract-dry/sensitive skin

Well, I admit: it's my fault that this product did not work for me. Previously I bought the Dior cleaner with velvet peony and it gave me allergies. It's been a couple years ago. So, I decided to give the toner a try based on great reviews. Well, it was very moisturizing but it also gave me allergies. Such a pity, coz otherwise the product is great (a little over-fragranced, maybe).

Top/Base Coats - Orly - Won't Chip

The only thing this polish shield does is make my nail polish dry faster. It has no effect on chipping. My nail polish chips just the same whether I use this top coat or not.

Lotions/ Creams - Estée Lauder - Re-Nutriv Intensive Smoothing Hand Cream

It is a very-very thick cream, which I love. I used it in the winter, and my hands were happy. It absorbs well and survives several hand-washes. I'd recommend this product to someone who also loves thick, heavy cream textures. Writing this review made me really wanting to repurchase. So I will.
