I am surprised at how much I love this. I have every color except the lightest pink.

I had seen products like this from pixi an benefit for ever and was never interested because of the color range was off for my skin tone. But this product at this price I figured eh give it a try. And man, it lasts all day and does not budge. I dot this over my foundation using plain old hands ( I …

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - RESIST C15 Super Booster

Jun/20/2016

So my review is more of a comment on cost. This is vitamin c, properly packaged. It does what vitamin c is supposed to do when well formulated. I like vitamin c, so I like this product. I do not have sensitive skin, don't experience side effects, and can take a ton of this stuff so I seem to go through it much faster than recommended.

My problem right now with Paula's …

I'm really surprised by the reviews of this product.I currently have quite a bit of foundations Maybelline Fitme, Boots Matte, Graftobian cream, cc cream, and this is my favorite.

This foundation is the trickiest to apply...you have to, have to, use a damp sponge. A brush is just going to give you streaks. I would say that without some water this is a medium coverage making it …

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - RESIST BHA 9 Treatment

Jan/12/2016

I love paula's choice, I hate this. I have very oily skin which is why I use a bha so often to begin with. The silicone type texture of this product just adds to the slip of my face. I can't layer it under makeup, hate using it at night, and have never found a good application for it. This is advertised as a "9" but according to her team has a time release effect and you are …Read more

This is a new product. I have used it for about 6 months and I love, love, love it. I don't have much faith in "quick" wrinkle removing products and have a lot of faith in retinol but I was intrigued by this item because of paula's choice's team. They were explaining that there was preliminary research about these ingredients but were so confident in some of the results …Read more

I'm on my 2nd bottle and I love this. It plumps my skin. I use a drop on my lips the next day they look fuller. I have very oily skin and almost never use moisturizers but this has a nice weightless quality to it. It's now up there with my retinol, vitamin c, bha, mandelic. I will be on the lookout for cheaper brands besides paulas now that I have found it. But I do love their products …Read more

This product is the following

20% Lactic Acid
5% Glycolic Acid
5% Mandelic Acid
2% Citric Acid
1% Salicylic Acid

It is sticky due to the Lactic Acid. It deposits aha, bha in one step. I like this product a lot. I use much higher strengths of most of the acids on my face so I knew that I would be fine with this. I also knew from years of experience that I …

I have flipflopped on Paula Begoun at first I loved her, highlighted her books, then I started to dislike her because of the conflict of interest when she started to sell her own products. Despite this I was still using a combination of beautipedia and makeup alley to advise me on products. I recently fell back in love, when I found her youtube videos of Q&A livechats.

Between her …

Eye Shadow - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Star Powder Eye Shadow

For years I was obsessed with star powder and all the shimmer. I would use for highlights and as eyeshadow. It also peaked my interest in a similar expensive product from illamasqua.....and then I discovered tkb trading and there wide range of shimmers at a much lower price (the only downside being as they supply makeup, packaging) So what was a holy grail product to me is now not worth the price.

I don't really have much to say that's different from everyone else accept one important thing i discovered recently ...there is such a thing....as powdered aspirin …Read more
