I have very fair and very sensitive skin. It has always been a challenge to find a foundation that fit my needs tor color, coverage, allergies, and price. I have used brands ranging from drugstore to makeuup artist driven lines to rather expensive designer brands. The playing field has gotten significantly larger with the addition of stores like Sephora and Ulta giving a showplace for smaller …Read more

Apr/19/2018

I don't get the hype around this product. I have bought and returned it, in several colors, about four times!! Probably because I just can't find anything else that meets my needs, and this one keeps getting recommended! I am very fair, Mont Blanc in Nars' Sheer Glow foundation ( which is neither sheer or glowy!). I have tried the Vanilla, the Chantilly, and the new Creme …Read more

Jan/07/2017

I bought this from QVC when they were offering the supersize ( stupid me). I was about to return it when I wore it one night with MAC mineralize concealer, and my daughter siaid that I looked great, so I kept it. But I have only worn it for outdoor summer activities that require the high SPF. First, the color fair,, which I absolutely need, is extremely yellow. Second, for a CC cream, it acts …Read more

I don't remember why I bought this mascara, maybe I read a good review about it somewhere. It came in a brown color, so thay may have swayed my decision, because ti has been hard to find truly brown mascaras in this blacker is better world!! I have very fair skin and hazel green eyes, and I find brown mascara brings out my eye color better, , especially for everyday use. I was extremely …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Touch

Oct/27/2015

This was the first MAC lipstick I ever bought. I don't have many lipsticks from MAC because I tend to look best in warm toned browns, and they seem to specialize in either bright colors, or pale nudes. I have fair skin, hazel green eyes, and light auburn hair. Touch is a chameleon like brown that complements my coloring perfectly! It may look dark in the tube, but it is the lustre …Read more

Saw this advertised on QVC and had to have it. My skin has been very dry and its promise of a dewy complexion was intoxicating. Since the Sephora VIB promotion was going on, it was a good time to try something new. I ordered it in Opal o1, the lightest cool shade. I was torn because summer was coming, but I wanted to ttry it out under the best conditions. I also bought the finishing brush …Read more

Jun/12/2015

I bought this product during Sephora's VIB sale because of the great reviews it got on this site. Unfortunately, the Sephora Website listed color #2 as the lightest. I am NW15, 3.75 in Georgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. So definitely would have benefitted from the #1 described here which seems to have a pink undertone. I bought the pink corrector at the same time, since Bobbi …Read more

This was recommended to me by a SA at Sephora when I asked for a foundation with a dewy finish. I was surprised but took a sample home. I loved, loved the finish. It feels so light but looks so smooth on your face. She convinced me I was a cool undertone. I've been programed to always look for yellow based colors, how wrong I was. The cool based color Buff 4C brought out my skin's …Read more

I guess I disagree with most of the reviewers here. I am not a snob and would wear anything that was a good color on me and did not irritate my sensitive skin. I must compliment WNW on being fragrance and irritant free, very rare for a low cost product. I have two WNW matte palettes from last year, don't remember the names, but they had six shadows each, three matte on the left and three …Read more

May/09/2012

The perfect neutral for a fair skinned redhead!! So hard to find brown blushes, but when brown mixes with the pink in our skin you get the perfect, natural flush. This is very light, which is great. I can quickly swish it on for a very natural look and barely have to blend, or I can add a "pop" of a brighter color on the apples of the cheeks. It might look dull on a darker or olive …Read more
