What a weird foundation! Don't get me wrong, I like it - love it, actually - but it's so sheer and blendable that it's almost as if the color you pick doesn't even matter. I admit to not knowing my exact MAC shade, but I've got to be at least NC 40 and all three of the medium shades (s104, s105 and s106) pretty much work for me.


Like many, I …

I've got to be on my 4th or 5th bottle of this. I absolutely adore this product. The bottle is nice and dark to prevent sun damage to the vitamin C and the dropper is really convenient.

The product itself works subtly and slowly, I find, but it does work - I'm not using it for anti-aging concerns (I'm still not convinced that vitamin c does much for existing wrinkles …

This is a really good product. I bought the 50ml size back in February of this year, I believe, and it's lasted me until now - the perfect amount of time imo just because spf does seem to go bad after a while.
I think the high factor is ideal for the full on days of summer, I'd mix it with my alpha hydrox glycolic acid cream and it makes a perfect base for makeup, too. And …

I feel weird reviewing a limited edition palette this late in the game - it's like, what's the point? - but I just love this and want to share my love with the world. I'd share with my girlfriends but so many of them aren't into makeup :(.

First off, I have to say while the shadows are on the sheerer side - I was especially surprised that the deep chocolate brown …

I'm so confused about the pricing for this product now - the thingie at the side says $32 but I seem to remember paying $28. I mean, it's not that big of an increase I guess but while I winced at paying $28 for this, no way I'd pay over $30 for what is essentially a lip balm. No effing way. This is the only reason I'm saying no to a repurchase because I already own two and …Read more

I hate to rain on the Sheer Tint parade - quite a few reviewers seemed to love this product in other colors. While I'm not a big fan of lip products in general, this tends to be the formula I tolerate best: relatively sheer, not too-too shiny, moisturizing and does not require a liner to look good. I like the way it glides on and the fact that it's not at all sticky. The color is …Read more

La Femme mascara is good stuff. I love how think it makes my lashes look, I love that I don't have to worry about bacteria or microbes or whatever since you can just replace the spoolie brushes. I also love the sheer glamor of applying such an old school product; I feel like Lena Horne or Marilyn Monroe or somebody. My girlfriends also tend to be impressed whenever I whip this out when …Read more

I have this in Afterglow and so am glad to add my two scents on the other shade of this product. It looks somewhat dark and muddy in the pan but goes on the skin in a sophisticated golden shimmer. I also played around with Sunlight - it's cooler and probably the best choice for fair-skinned gals whereas whereas Afterglow is warmer and perfect on my medium-dark skin. I also think Afterglow …Read more

Jul/19/2011

I have this in black and love it. Like so many others have said, this isn't a super-lengthening mascara like those crazy commercials for Cover Girl, Maybelline and whatnot. But when I do a side by side comparison with Estee Lauder or La Femme cake mascara - the only other two brands of mascara I own - I prefer the BWC for every day wear. It looks natural, adds a slight curl for my few …Read more

Okay, I won't lie, when I sniffed a sample of this my first thought was, "Hmm, dryer-sheet." It was winter so my second thought was, "A dryer-sheet I can barely smell." But I'm glad I gave it a second shot in warmer weather because this is a spring/summer fragrance extraordinaire.

I am unfamiliar with Linden, except when it comes to tisanes, but I think …
