This is for the Lucy Light formula. I wish I could give it 10 stars!! I have battled SD and malassszia folluculitis for a long time. I must avoid oils, fatty alcohols, cones, etc. So, what to do about a foundation?? I ordered samples after reading reviews and asking lots of questions. I hit the nail on the head with light-medium shade. This stuff makes my oily skin look like velvet. I do not get …Read more

Jul/25/2012

I read Dr. Bailey's blog and thought this might help what I suspected was a yeast or fungal problem with my skin. Let me start by saying I have oily skin that is not breakout prone. I had a couple of questions about this soap and another product and called the number on the website. I left a message, which was never returned. I emailed them and never got a response. So, i proceeded with …Read more

Powder - Bobbi Brown - Skin Foundation Mineral Makeup SPF 15

Feb/19/2012

I was looking for a light to medium coverage mineral foundation, and I purchased this in shade light. It was a great match to my skin and looked very natural. I used a kabuki to apply, and it was quick and nearly effortless. Unfortunately the irritation from this product started about an hour after application. My face felt hot and itchy, and I quickly began to develop red, itchy bumps on my …Read more

Polishes - ZOYA - Edyta

Buyer Beware! This is a lovely polish, but make certain you have sandblasting equipment and a good movie to watch while you toil away removing this stuff! It's a great deep earthy green polish with bronzey gold shimmer. It's quite unique. The lasting power was not impressive, and it began chipping after only two days. (applied base coat, top coat, too)

When I began removing …

If you have chapped lips or dry, cracked skin, you must get this product! I struggled with chapped lips in winter until I tried this product. I prep my lips with it before applying a nude lipstick. The lipstick applies more smoothly over Aquaphor. I also wear each it night while I sleep. Problem solved! When my hands get dry from too much washing in cold weather, I apply this on top of Cerave …Read more

Feb/07/2011

This is my HG powder, and it provides a beautiful and natural finish. Please don't be deterred by the garishly-white color! If applied with a quality brush using a light hand, you will achieve wonderful results. I dump a bit out on my bathroom counter and then dip my Trish powder brush into the product. I sweep it on using light strokes. It doesn't settle into pores or look chalky or …Read more

Feb/07/2011

If you have blue/gray eyes, this is a must-have NARS duo! The lighter shadow is a beautiful, versatile beige/peach/nude shimmer. I wear it all over the lid and often use it as a highlighter under the brow. The steel/blue/gray shadow works beautifully in the crease and outer corner. It makes my eyes absolutely pop. The quality of the shadows is top-notch. They are soft and blend well. When used …Read more

Cleansers - Purpose - Gentle Cleansing Wash

Feb/07/2011

I thought this would be a great gentle cleanser, and I was wrong! I always research what I buy, and somehow I missed the fact that this product has fragrance. It cleanses thoroughly and doesn't leave the skin feeling stripped. However, I do not use anything fragranced on my face. If you aren't sensitive to fragrance, then it would probably be a great cleanser to use at the end of the …Read more

Love this product! The color selection isn't great, but it's worth it if you can find a match for your skin. I use #6, which is fair-medium and on the yellow side. It's natural looking, light, and provides good physical sun protection. It works well with my oily skin and hasn't caused any irritation or breakouts. A little goes a long way, and a tube lasts about four months …Read more

I'm not sure why I stopped briefy in Sephora and decided to pick up the butt-ugly bottle of this stuff and give it a sniff. Well, I'm glad I did. I like fruity scents, and this one fits the bill. At first I smell lots of strawberry. And when I say lots, I really mean lots. After a bit, the strawberry mellows out and becomes much more rounded. I find it fresh and modern, and I get …Read more
