The best part about this foundation is how portable it is. The little package makes it great for travel because you can take it with you and you have a mirror and applicator. I bought mine in the shade Porcelain and for my light skin is matches well though a tiny bit of oxidation. The finish is light to medium coverage and quite a bit shiny (similar to the IT cosmetics CC). I find it best to use …Read more

I was very excited to try this primer because I have heard great things for those of us with oily skin. When used it in combination with the EL Double Wear and the Laura Mercier powder I could instantly feel my skin being sucked of all oil (that is a very drying combination!). The primer under other foundations looks good, but I don't think that it really did much for the wear of other …Read more

I bought this as a smaller sample (1.8 oz) at Sephora to give it a test run before I try out the bigger size. It is by far the best dry shampoo that I have tried (compared to the drugstore dry shampoos). It has a pleasant smell and leaves no white residue!
The downside, the sample size ran out very fast! This could be because I purchased a smaller size, or maybe just this bottle was letting …

This is one of the few products I own that is a true HG. I have very oily skin and cannot wear eyeshadow without a primer. This primer not only gets the job done and lasts all day, but the price is affordable and makes me wonder why I would ever buy a more expensive primer. The only downside is I live in Ontario, Canada and I have trouble finding it. Would recommend to anyone!

Good cleanser, very bland, no fragrance, and it did not make me breakout which was good. However I am not one for cleansers and I prefer to use a scrub on a daily basis, I found this did not clean my face that well, it just made some bubbles on the surface and that was it. Not a powerful cleanser at all.

Air leaked after one use. Might have been good, but using it one time isn't enough to give a good review. In my opinion do not get it if so many people have had trouble with it, it will probably leak for you as well. Currently I am using a dry shampoo by TRESemme which hasn't leaked, but I can't say its the most amazing product.

- Has no smell.
- Leaves even the flakiest skin smooth.
- Haven't really noticed how long it last, but its not that long, but I also have very dry skin in general.
- Will not buy again because when I apply it leaves my hand greasy.

Great product! Can get a little greasy if you put too much on but it does a great job to add shine and a little goes a long way. It doesn't tame fly aways that well, but that also depends on your hair.

My biggest problem with this product is the price. Normally I am not the type to shell out a lot of money for hair products, but this time I made an exception. While I think this is too expensive for even a regularly sized hair product, the tiny size makes me cringe. It also has no lid so travelling can be risky if you lose the tiny black clip that it comes with. Overall, I don't think …Read more

Its a great idea for a cleanser, but in the end it didn't make the cut. To begin with, I loved the clean smell and the texture, and the bottle made it easy to use. The problem is it made me break out. At first I wasn't sure if it really was because of the cleanser, but once I stopped using it, everything went back to normal. I may simply have been to thick a cleanser for my skin even …Read more
