Great hairspray! This doesn't weigh down my fine hair and sprays in an even mist. It doesn't build up or get tacky. I find the scent pleasant and it holds my hair in place. I also use it as a root booster on 90% dry hair when I am blow drying it and the volume it gives my hair is fantastic! Love this product!

I wanted to love this based on the great reviews I have read but it just didn't work for me. The color made me look a bit jaundiced and a little washed out. I ended up getting 30 watts because ten and twenty were just too light for my liking. The finish was also a little weird, it pooled up in my laugh lines around my mouth, which are only there with this powder :/ and accentuated my pores …Read more

This is a beautiful shade of shimmery taupe with a hint of light mauve undertones. I wear this when I am not in the mood to make myself completely up. It is a very pretty eyeshadow to compliment an (almost) bare face. Not too light and not too dark, this is also beautiful when layered over a darker brown eyeshadow for a softer smokey eye. Love it!

Lips - REVLON - Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm

I bought this in Victorian. The color, when applied with a light hand is beautiful! The staying power....not as impressive. It rubs off just as easily as a lipstick but seems to stay in my lip creases. It's not noticeable and it kind of looks like I just ate a sucker. Which isn't a bad look but for a product claiming to be a lip stain, it is a little misleading. It also seems to dry my …Read more

I purchased this in Sand beige which is the second lightest color. The lightest color was a bit too light and too pink for me. Sand beige seems to have more neutral undertones. I mix equal parts of this and my Makeup For Ever HD microperfecting primer in pink and apply it to me face with my fingers. I then use a damp makeup sponge and press the product into my skin. This leaves my skin looking …Read more

Love Love Love this concealer! I am so excited they brought back the extra light shade. They discontinued the extra light shade about 7 years ago and the light shade was just to dark for under my eyes. I was on the Nordstrom website the other day and saw extra light as a shade available for purchase. After gaining my composure, I went to the Estee Lauder counter at Macy's. They were out. I …Read more

I love this primer! I am not a fan of primer in the first place, I see it as just another step that sucks up precious time in my makeup routine. However, while I was in Sephora, the pretty bottle and the claim that it brightens the complexion, suckered me in. When I applied this five minutes after my moisturizer with SPF (Cerave...which is my HG A.M. moisturizer) I immediately fell in love with …Read more

I use this in Classic Ivory for my NC20 skin tone. It couldn't be more perfect for me. It covers like a dream. The color is brilliant, not orange or yellow, but a very neutral color with just a hint of pink undertone. I NEVER get greasy when using this powder. I apply it with the sponge that is provided in the compact and press it over my face then buff it with a kabuki brush. Sometimes I …Read more

LOVE IT! I'm on my second tube of this and I can't remember when I bought it, it has been that long ago. This stuff lasts forever and is the best eye shadow base that does more than just prime. It is so beautiful by itself but far too pale for my liking. Paired with a darker shadow, it never creases, gets oily or dries out my eyes. LOVE IT!

By far thee best blush out there. I love this color. I love this finish. The color wakes me up and adds a beautiful warmth to my complexion. It never looks fake. It never streaks or looks cakey. I am in love with this blush.
