Moisturizers - La Roche-Posay - Toleriane Ultra Soothing Face Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin

5.0

15 days ago

Something irritated my face horribly, and I broke out into an itchy dry red rash along the nasolabial fold (the marionette lines from nose to lips). You could actually see the angry little blood vessels, it was so red. I got a sample from the nice lady at the drug store, and she said to use it up in 3 days because it had 0% preservatives.
I applied it for 3 days, and lo and behold, the …

Polishes - Essie - Nail Polish - Fiji

1.0
Created with Sketch.

21 days ago

I bought this with high hopes because of the brand name, Essie.
Fiji (#152) is presented as a pretty luminescent pale pink. It is none of those things. It is a streaky mess, in a flat ugly chalky pink. If you have healthy pink nails, it will make them look like a corpse: dull whitish and ugly. It pools and streaks like nobody's business. There was no way to make this work, no matter …

Treatments (Face) - TATCHA - Satin Skin Mist

4.0
Created with Sketch.

23 days ago

This satin skin mist does the opposite of their much-touted dewy skin mist - it contains clay in a dispersed liquid solution, which is spritzed with an atomizer. It's OK but does not really absorb all that much oil. Not chalky looking, but not long-lasting. I haven't used it long enough to see if the opening will clog, which is something users mentioned on the Tatcha website.

Lipstick - CHANEL - Rouge Coco Shine #128 Noir Moderne

3.0
Created with Sketch.

23 days ago

Noir Moderne 128 on my lips (pigmented and tending towards purple) is too brown/purple a colour - I need pink or red to warm up my lips! In its favor, it has a lovely texture, melts on the lips, and does not visibly pool in wrinkles. But it does not give me the youthful oopmh I need. I might wear it if I were going to a funeral and was wearing black or navy blue and did not want to look too made …Read more

Try out (for free, they also pay shipping and handling from the Netherlands, so it's totally no-risk) their foundations in a cute little packet that gives you about 2 days' worth. They send you several foundations so you can try out darker or lighter shades. They go from alabaster white to deep brown, so you should be able to find something that suits you color-wise! Hint: I have a …Read more

This a review of the current edition (purchased 2019) of this product, still called Blushing (Shimmer) with product # 125.
It is a lovely light-medium pink with a gold shimmer, fairly discreet, could be used at the office, won't give you disco ball nails.
I like to mix a bit of it into my Dior Nail Glow bottle to give my nails a very subtle glow, they just look young and healthy …

BB Cream - MISSHA - M Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF 42 PA+++

2 months ago

Wow! Holy Grail summer foundation with SPF 42. Beautiful shade 27 for my light/medium olive skin, just perfect for slight summer tan WC 20-25. Very nice texture, just a tad mat, but very close to neutral, no horrible sunscreen sheen. If you really want a dewy look, you can add it back to your cheeks and highlight other areas if you like, the upper lip, around the brows, down the nose etc. See my …Read more

Lip Gloss - TATCHA - Beautyberry Camellia Lip Balm

1.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I'm not a fan of this lip gloss, although I like some of Tatcha's other products (see reviews). This gloss is way too dark, and it has an ugly blue undertone which clashes with my warm toned light olive skin. Pity- because it's housed in a lovely container.

Lips - TATCHA - Beautyberry Silk Lipstick

1.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

Tatcha lip products generally aren't worth their exorbitant prices to me, with the exception of their stellar lip oil - magnificent for dry winters.
The Beautyberry lipstick does not work at all for me - it is a purple/fuschia with a definite blue cast, and just accentuates a purple undertone in my lips. It also clashes with my warm medium fair/olive complexion - I can't imagine it …

Primer/ Corrector - TATCHA - The Silk Canvas Face Primer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I'm surprised by the low ratings in general. I'm in agreement with a minority of reviewers who find it effective. I found that it helped blur under eye lines, crinkles (laugh lines) and the marionette lines running from nose to mouth. It goes on somewhat mat, but not dead, and this mat effect lasts about 4 hours, just the length of a dinner engagement, or half of a working day.
I …
