Liquid - Lancôme - Teint Miracle Radiant Foundation

I have dry flaky skin, and need coverage. This felt beautiful going on but the coverage is like tinted moisturizer and it didn't cover anything regardless of the number of layers. It looked nice when layered with a bit of powder (to cover pores) and concealer but it was gone in an hour. This was like a mediocre BB with no benefits. The packaging is beautiful. By the way these shades go on …Read more

I haven't posted on MUA in ages but have had to reassess my foundation situation post- menopause because my skin is so dry and have made a lot of purchases trying to find the right one. So I decided to share my experiences...This is fantastic and nothing like the drugstore version by L'Oreal. It really is a miracle. I use serum and moisturizer first (usually a Caudalie combo) and wait …Read more

BB Cream - CLINIQUE - Age Defense BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Jun/13/2012

I was pleasantly surprised by this product, as I have had ugh experiences with Clinique foundations. First, it is very matte on my normal/aging skin, which is different than most BBs, and I kind of like that. However, it does not provide as much coverage or have that magic make-stuff-disappear-with-very-little-product quality that the Korean BBs have. It works best with a light coverage mineral …Read more

BB Cream - MISSHA - M Signature Real Complete BB Cream SPF 25 PA++

This is the best BB cream I have tried to date (Boscia, Dr. Jart, Clinique, Skin79, Etude House, Garnier), and it's the only one I ended up paying full price for at H Mart ($45+ OUCH). I would never pay that again for it, given that I have found much better pricing on line, but I do think that this is the best one for my sort of dry, sometimes flakey, enlarged pores, aging complexion. It …Read more

I have been test driving alot of BB creams lately and this one is just meh. First issue is that there is no color choice, so it's pretty light, and alarmingly gray upon application.Second, it goes on very tacky and shiney, but it does eventually lose the tackiness but is wicked shiney., The shine just emphasizes my pores and old scarring which is undesirable in my book. However this is …Read more

I'm on a BB cream tear and am currently trying out every brand I can get my hands on. This has been the worst by far. It is not really a BB cream- it has little or no coverage, feels tacky, but is easily spread. It has very little spf (15- useless in my book) and supposedly some Vit. C, but I am skeptical it has enough to constitute some sort of skin care benefit Not exactly a multi-tasker …Read more

I cannot comprehend the reviews for this- I think someone peed in my sample. Because I get a split second of something vaguely fruity, then a sharp slap of cat piss. It's vile.

Fragrances - CHANEL - Les Exclusifs de Chanel - Jersey

This is one out of several "Exclusifs" that I am sampling right now and it's just the pits, I'm sorry to say. "Jersey" indeed- sweat crusted Sag Harbor jersey separates in a nursing home with a dash of Jean Nate- and thankfully in this case- zero sillage. Poor Coco must be rolling in her grave over some of these.

I've been waiting weeks to review this- I would say this is in my top 5 foundations of all time. This puts all those other creme foundations I've wasted money on over the years- Gerda Spillman; Graftobian; Cover FX; Shu Uemura; etc. to shame. You don't need any special techniques to apply- I love my CoverFx pointy synthetic foundation brush with this. Anyway, it is super stupid …Read more

Lip Gloss - CHANEL - Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss - Genie (52)

Jan/18/2011

This is a new color for Spring 2011. It's my first Extrait de Gloss so I'm not sure if all of them are like this. It feels nice but this particular shade isn't all that long lasting, and I was expecting more color payoff. It's a fairly standard coral-peach color - like Bobbi Brown's Tangerine gloss. The packaging is nice- all black lacquer. But you can't see how much …Read more
