I haven't used MAC makeup in years. I'm always on the lookout for long lasting foundations and my trusted go to - Clinique Stay Matte- just doesn't work for me anymore now that I lost my slight tan. I tried Hourglasss Seamless, LaMer, Nars Radiant Longerwear plus a few more and finally found this. The same bullet proof wear of Ester Lauded Doublewear but not as matte or acne …Read more

I purchased this based on reviews I read on another site. I'm about NC30/35 and the shade Warm Ivory was spot on. The foundation is very pigmented so I would swipe two stripes per cheek, a dab on the chin and a swipe on the forehead and blend. When first applied, it can look very matte/satin matte. As the day goes on, my combo skin got dewier which is fine with me. But the reason it …Read more

I recently started having issues with acne and tried out Clinique again as I used to use Clinique foundactions as a teenager. I'm pleasantly surprised at how good these are and comparatively inexpensive. I got a shade that's slightly too dark so I mix this with my Lancome 24 hour foundation which is a bit too light. I apply with my Beauty Blender like sponge and this looks …Read more

This review is for the automatic pencil version of the eyeliner. I used the one pictured in the review and while it lasted all day, I inevitably ended up with panda eyes. Due to the strong lasting power of the eyeliner the panda eyes were difficult to clean up at work without eye makeup remover. The new version, however rocks! No more panda eyes and incredible lasting power. I also have the dark …Read more

I'm about an NC35 and wear this in Fair (or Florentine Fair). Very pretty, dewy finish that actually lasts. I'm very picky about foundations and this is the only foundation I have repurchased this several times.

Eyeliner - Marc Jacobs - Highliner Gel Crayon Eyeliner - Blacquer

I got this as part of my birthday present from Sephora. This eyeliner has a fat tip, so you can't really get a thin line. For me that's not at issue as I prefer my eyeliner thick but although it goes on really dark, it lasts about 4 hours or so on me. That's a deal breaker for me as I hate reapplying makeup during the day.

I rarely wear perfume as most give me a headache or make me nauseous. Never this though. Its a beautiful, sexy, sophisticated perfume. Cons - price.

Finally! Where has this been all my life? I usually tend to like the more "trendy" brands like Nars, MUFE in high end but on a whim decided to try Clinique.

So here's my story - I've looked high and low for a foundation that will stay on my face. Ideally one that's not super matte. After having tried EVERYTHING I found Estee Lauder Doublewear. Finally …

I love tons of volume in my hair and am always looking for a great product. This really works! I typically use with something stronger on the roots. And as someone else noted, right after blow drying with this mouse, my hair feels sticky and seems not as shiny as usual. This seems to go away by the end of the day. It seems to me that with this mouse, second day hair looks the best. The volume is …Read more

I have a number of these, a couple of pinks, a nude, and peachy brown. The product itself is a godsend for matte lippie lovers like myself. However, as everyone else notes, the packaging sucks. My issue, and I seem to be alone here, is less about how it looks but how it works. I usually put on a lippie in the morning and stick it in my purse for touch ups during the day. Just about all of them …Read more
