Outstanding. One of the best foundations I've ever tried.

PROS
Blends smoothly over my dehydrated skin! (Right now, I'm applying with fingers.)
Looks fresh all day, even in my 12x mirror after 10 hours wear!
Good shade match for me ("cool vanilla")
pump dispenser - works exceptionally well at portion control, prevents product from being …

Lipstick - REVLON - Ultra HD Matte Lip Color

Jan/07/2017

Hated it - was not what I was expecting. I bought the darkest shade, "Infatuation", which looks like a dark plum. It applies patchy and lighter in color than you'd think, judging from the color in the tube. I tried applying 2 or 3 layers, but both of those problems persisted. When I tried to build up the color, the formula just got goopy. Perhaps there is a better way to apply it …Read more

Tried this, hated it. Clung to dehydrated patches and wore away in patches throughout the day. I got a little sample of NC13, and the color was nice, application was fine. I have Rosacea and textured, dehydrated patches, between brows and on inner cheeks. Favorite foundations: Clinique redness solutions, Maybelline dream smooth mousse (discont.), NARS sheer glow, Estée Lauder double wear.

Nars Sheer Glow foundation is neither sheer nor glowing, but I quite like it. Favorite aspects - the color match and the coverage. I use the Real Techniques expert face brush to apply.

PROS
Great color match for me - Mont Blanc
Medium/full coverage - covers my Rosacea without needing concealer
Blends pretty well over dry patches
Stays put
Matte …

My skin and foundation turn a bit gooey in the humid summertime months. I tried switching foundations but then stumbled on a better solution - a matte primer! WHOA - made all the difference! This foundation keeps my foundation matte and my face shine-free all day. I apply it after skin care products and sunscreen but before makeup.

PROS

Jun/20/2016

In search of a matte, long-wearing foundation that matches my skin tone. I already use a variety of foundations, depending on whether I want to be paler or have higher spf or cover trouble. Best color match and best all-around work horse of a foundation = Clinique redness solutions. Whyyyy do I keep trying to improve perfection? In my mind, I imagine I can find something just like it but more …Read more

I do not understand this product. I've been using it for 2 weeks now, albeit not every day. I can't figure out what it is supposed to be doing for me. It's not a cleanser, not a moisturizer. And my skin doesn't look any different.

PRO's: ?

CON's:
pricey
usefulness=?

How am I so late to the Doublewear fan club??? Holy cow, this is great.

I have Rosacea, and my main goals are: cover redness, de-emphasize texture, be pale as possible. Doublewear #1n1 "Ivory Nude" covers redness, looks pale and at least doesn't make texture worse.

I'm really happy with the color (not too yellow, not orange, not pink). I'm NC20 in …

Concealers - Laura Geller New York - Real Deal Full Coverage Cream Concealer

Created with Sketch.

Jul/13/2015

I am in love with this product, the Laura Geller "real deal" concealer. An Ulta MUA applied it for me last week, and the result was thrilling. I have Rosacea and like to try different products to conceal redness (and texture). A tiny amount of this pigmented concealer goes a long way. And it can be layered if you feel you need to add a bit more.

I've used it over my …
