This is my go-to foundation! I never liked actual foundations because no matter how closely it matches your skin tone, it still always looks fake and obvious. This tinted moisturizer is perfect - just enough coverage to hide some uneven skin tone, but looks like my own skin and not like I'm wearing a face full of makeup!

It's a good dark basic red. The polish goes on a bit streaky at first, but after 2-3 coats, looks very smooth and dramatic. I think L'Oreal polishes are some of the longest-lasting among drug store polishes. Sally Hansen and Essie chip after 2 days on me!

So far so good! I usually get a bit of a flaky scalp immediately after shampooing (I only shampoo every 3 days or so), but very clear scalp after first use, and my hair feels really nice, not dry. I didn't use the matching conditioner, though, but Aveeno's sulfate-free stuff.

I have a few stubborn grays just around my face, and I usually use Garnier Nutrisse. But it washes out in about 2 weeks, so I thought I would try this because it promised to color even resistant grays. I followed all the instructions (even the weird pre-treatment gel...but okay). Complete disappointment! My grays were still very obvious when I rinsed it off!! I think I had better luck with …Read more

I've been looking for a nice, semi-opaque gloss and thought I'd found it. But when I opened the tube, the gloss smelled like house paint! Just an incredibly harsh chemical smell! It also burned my lips when I applied it :( Don't know what they made this out of, but definitely nothing I'd want to use anywhere NEAR my face.

This may sound strange, but after you first put it on, Desir de Nature smells like Clinique Aromatics Elixir does after a few hours of wear! So sort of a very faded Clinique AE. Only Clinique AE is MUCH more longer-lasting and progresses so well throughout the day. Desir is overall quite nice, but not something I'd buy again. A little too simple and almost cheap-smelling. There's a …Read more

I thought this could be a cheap alternative to the Naked 2 eye pallette, but how wrong I was. The colors in and of themselves are good, but as some reviewers noted, the shadows are extremely dry. I also find them hard to blend.

Also, it always bugs me that Sonia Kashuk's stuff doesn't come with a mirror or any brushes. I know you're "supposed to" buy separate …

The cream is indeed very moisturizing and absorbs quickly without feeling greasy. I like how light it is, which is usually difficult to find in an ultra-moisturizing night cream (I have very dry skin, so I need to bring out the big guns). The smell is a little dated, but doesn't bother me. I think I also noticed reduced redness, but it wasn't very obvious. Overall, I recommend it …Read more
