Love it, but would like more for the money. Egg is cute for purse, but not real practical for home use. It’s a little too gimmicky for a prestige brand. I have the original formula. Lightweight and it works. Would never tell anyone how much it costs.

Bought this for myself for Christmas. It is a beautiful pink color, not matte and not super shiny. Perfect MLBB for me. Being of a certain age (cough 70) all the matte lipsticks are killers for me. The mattes make me look like death. I do find that this lipstick disappears pretty quickly and must be reapplied. Still would repurchase, but then I am an idiot.

I really like this foundation even though it is a little gimmicky. I have in the lightest cool shade 1Bone 1. I am old and while my skin is not the best, I have come to the realization that less really is more when it comes to.makeup at my age. I usually use ELDWL in .05 intensity. I like this for traveling because it is so easy to carry. I spread some on with the sponge top, then smooth …Read more

Have used this for years. I have very oily skin and a lot of roseacea. ELDWL does a good job covering redness. I recently switched from Level 1 to Level .5. I am about NW15. I like the lighter shade better. I either wear over Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer or I mix the primer and foundation together. Need to blot my nose later in the day. Not as heavy as ELDW. I experiment with other …Read more

I bought this based on a citation on Somme website. I got a small kit that included both the scrub and hand cream for $12.50. I like the hand scrub but I am not crazy about the scent. In the scrub and the hand cream the scent is a little too much like men's cologne for me. The scrub is nice and really softens the hands.

I have also used L'Occitane Hand Salt scrub and …

I am always searching for an eye cream. I had a small sample of this and really liked it. It feels cooling when you tap it on around your eyes. A rather tacky consistency which probably is best for nighttime use. I use it day time on non makeup days. Lovely looking jar if that matters to you. Current price is $60.00 for .5 ounces.

I really like this. Obvious knock off of the Fresh Lip Balms. To me they have the same lemony scent. I have it in Jelly which is a deep pinkish plum shade. Plan to get the Soda shade as well. Doesn't last that long, but it feels good on my parched lips. Shade show on the tube is not the shade of the product. Read other reviews to see which color might work for you.

I don't know why I bought this, but I'm an idiot. A rather dark burgandy shade of lip/cheek color. Does not give aging skin a color lift. Tiny tube which does not show product weight. Too expensive for the size and usefulness. You have to buy online and wait several weeks for delivery. I unsubmitted my daily email from her even before the product arrived. It was ridiculous how …Read more

This is a preliminary review. I have aging skin that is oily with large pores and roseacea. I was looking for a foundation product for everyday that is not too heavy. I kept waiting for this to be released. I dithered between Alaska or Terra Nueve as I am pretty fair under the roseacea. Chose Alaska and it looks a little dark to me. I have ordered Terra Nueve and will see if that is better …Read more

I have gray hair that can can get oily after two days. Use to dye my hair, but went natural when I retired. My hair was much dryer when it was processed. I love this product to extend time between shampoos. I spray some on the roots, wait a few minutes, fluff to distribute, then style my hair. Since I am gray, the white powder is not an issue. I get a lot of volume using this, which I …Read more
