I have the SPF 50 version. Great texture and spreadability. I've been testing this for about 2 weeks straight. No whitish cast but it does create shine all over on my combo/sensitive skin. In my experience, sunscreens either control oil and clog pores or do not clog pores but create shine. I rather have shine than clogged pores. No breakouts or any other discomfort. Would buy it again.

I feel the bristle quality is not as good as Trish McEvoy's #5 powder brush but it does apply powder better than my TM brush. However, I got one that sheds. Buy it on eBay for the best deal.

My combo (oily t, dry cheeks) really likes this one better than the extra light version. Especially during winter. I keep trying other moisturizers with exotic anti-aging ingredients to prevent blah blah blah, but my skin knows better and the results speak for themselves in the mirror. I use this one at night and just started using it during the day with sunscreen on top. My oiliness is more …Read more

Lipstick - CLINIQUE - Butter Shine - Crushed Grape

Very pretty color. Perfect Plum was too pink for me. This one resembles Club Monaco's Glaze but more creamy and shiny. I find that upon first application the texture and shimmer is moist. After about an hour or two, my dry lips have sucked up all the moisture and the color becomes a stain, which is fine with me since I don't re-apply lipstick too often. Clinique reps recommend using a …Read more

Preliminary review of this moisturizer. I have combo/sensitive skin. This moisturizer's spreadability is A+, unlike some mattifying lotions. It actually smooths out your skin a bit and results in a finish that is very much like a primer. But the mattifying qualities do not leave a filmy dryness. My face feels very hydrated, only not dewy but matte. Here's the real winning factor, no …Read more

Wow! The burgundy red is truly beautiful. I think this is the most perfect red I have ever seen that actually works for me. Reds are challenging for anyone but I think this cute little palette can work with so many skin tones. The pink is also very nice. Not too warm or cool. Both colors work great with Chanel Nude lipliner. The best part is the texture, very soft, not sticky, almost like a …Read more

Styling Products - Redken - Sharp Edge [DISCONTINUED]

Easy to work with. (I said the magic words). Pumps out like mousse but once you've blow dried, it gives your hair just the right amount of hold and controls fly-aways nicely. I have super straight hair and prone to static and frizz. This wax resists humidity and definitely lasts over a day or two. Terrific.

Two words: Tea Rose. If you remember or still wear Tea Rose by Perfumer's Workshop from back in the day (according to Amazon's description, says it was introduced in 1975?), this is the concentrated oil version. After taking the initial whiff, I didn't want to wear this fragrance again. I tested it anyway because my nose didn't agree with White Flowers or Stargazer. As some …Read more

I'm a huge fan of GA products and therefore bought this untested and unseen. I was quite disappointed. I asked an MA at an Armani event about this product a while ago and she did not recommend it to be used alone. It's more of a finishing powder to go on top of MSF or LSF. I should have listened to her. Although it has the same light texture as the loose powders and is very sheer once …Read more

Best pomade/wax I have ever used. I have used Redken's Water Wax and Smart Wax and both don't compare to this super styling product. If you're looking for pliable hold, this is it. I made the mistake of applying too much early on and it made my hair too greasy. A little goes a long way Expensive but since you don't use too much, the tub will last. Will definitely buy it once I …Read more
