This is a nice foundation, but it oxidized and turned orange on me in a matter of minutes. Just to make sure my oily skin wasn't the problem, I tested this foundation on my forearm. and my arm turned orange too.

Liquid - KANEBO - Sensai Fluid Finish foundation

I bought Sensai Fluid Finish based on the great reviews. I ordered #202 Soft Beige from Barneys. The shade is a bit too light for my summer skin. I am LM Nude, Sisley Soft Beige (Its hard to find good swatches online.)

This is an ordinary foundation - nothing special. I don't think it made my skin look great, nor did it really accentuate any bad skin. It felt heavy as I wore …

This is even better than my beloved Sisley foundation!. Its super lightweight, non-irritating, and has SPF! I I found a good match in #5. The MA at Saks told me that this was a good neutral shade for fair to light skin like mine. I am LM Nude, PX champagne, BB Sand. I am fairly oily, yet I also have some dry patches from acne meds.

The MA reminded me that this is not an …

This is a great new powder with SPF 15. It has great coverage, which is what I was looking for because I wear it over sheer foundation. It has a really nice texture too - very smooth and silky. (I couldn't resist buying it because of the texture!!) I am fair-medium and Petal is a good match for me. Petal has yellow undertones which helps mute the red in my skin. The packaging is nice …Read more

Lipstick - Giorgio Armani - Sheer Lipstick- #10

I am pretty unimpressed with GA cosmetics in general. This is a very basic (but expensive) sheer pink lipstick that doesn't show up against my light complexion. I rarely wear it because I think it is a boring color on me. I bought it along with GA Blush #10 and I regret both purchases.

This is a great undereye concealer. I am surprised that some reviewers have trouble with caking. I am 38 and ALL pot or solid concealers usually cake and show my lines. I am talking about Cle de Peu and Bobbi Brown especially. This doesn't happen with the Balm, but I do use eye cream under it. Right now its HG status. I have this in light and I am LM Nude, Sisley Soft Beige. So glad …Read more

This product is hard to review because the smell is so strange, that it is hard to get beyond. On first application, it felt nice but it smelled like baby formula, which I thought was kind of interesting at first. As the day went on the milk scent intensified and I could still smell my face by the evening (not a good thing). It reminded me of when my kids were babies and my clothes always …Read more

Like the previous reviewer said, this is a great and unusual color. Don't be afraid of the color in the tube. It is a silvery purple/pink shade and it looks great on cool undertones. I wear this with Clinique's smoldering plum blush, which complements it perfectly. It can end up looking too frosty if you apply too much, so be careful. Out of habit, I made the mistake of reapplying it …Read more

I love trying new foundations. I've tried them all, literally! This one is really, really nice for sensitive, combo skin. NOT for super oily girls. Its highly pigmented so you don't need to use a ton of product to get medium coverage. Its fragrance-free and has a great calming effect. I have naturally red skin and this really soothes it and tones it down. It contains thermal water, so …Read more

To me, this is like a tinted primer. It smooths out pores, has a slight tint, but hardly any coverage. Some other reviewers have compared this to a tinted moisturizer, but I don't think this product is moisturizing at all. I would recommend trying this only if you have great skin and if you are not prone to clogged pores.
