I love this! Was wearing IT Radiant CC cream and went to buy a replacement but of course fell into the Sephora zone and tried a few others. This one blew me away. I live in SoCal and have mature dry skin. Never had visible pores when younger but they are more visible now so the foundation finish really matters. This one looks like satin and makes my skin look youthful and bouncy. Exact shade …Read more

I have Pink Cashmere - a nude pink with a touch of brown. So creamy and more ‘rich’ somehow than many cream blushes I’ve tried. Perhaps more pigmented or opaque yet the finish is so natural and it blends beautifully. The only cream blush I use any more

I’m gonna yank this baby up in ratings! Yes there’s kickback (powder) but the colors are so rich and pigmented you only need a light touch. Placing colors works better for me than blending/dragging, with a stiff pencil brush to blur edges. What I like the most is how good it is for a mature face - lots of mattes, no chunky glitter but good shimmers, and rich but wearable colors. I can’t pull off …Read more

Wow. I finally replaced my old Revlon dryer because it just seemed to dry my hair. Stylist recommended ionic for silky fine hair so i tried Dyson (a disaster!) and now this little beauty. Pros: Dries hair incredibly fast. Leaves it shiny and silky even without heat protectant. Smooth motor sound.
Cons: The only con so far is that it’s so speedy you have to learn to style your hair faster! …

Smooth, creamy, no tugging, nice pigmentation. What’s not to like? I got the shade Uptight, which is a pinky brown nude and perfect for my skin tone - dark enough to add definition but not harsh. Throwing away all the losers in my collection.

Wow I’m impressed. I shy away from heavy foundations because my skin is dry and ‘mature’, but tried this at Ulta because I’d heard good things about it. It definitely has fuller coverage than I’m used to (MAC F&B C4) so at first I thought it looked too fake. But blended over moisturizer it just looks satiny and skin-like. I like that it is emollient. Tan is a great color match for me.

Gorgeous, highly pigmented warm colors. Beautiful on my NC35 complexion with brown eyes. Much warmer, with creamier texture than UD Naked, which has been my go-to until now. One lippie off for price and also lack of brush or carrying place for my own brush.
