I received a sample of this product and I really like it. I find it is a very natural looking finish, not overly matte nor shiny/frosted and looks like real skin. I only apply it in the creases around my nose and on the upper part of my cheeks, so the sample is lasting a long time. I am thinking of purchasing a full size when I am finished my sample. I bought warm beige and it is a little dark …Read more

I had a mini sample attached to one of their other products and wow! So impressed!! I highly recommend this product. It's a gel cream, very light. But it intensely hydrates and your face feels like a baby's but the next day. Dramatic improvement over a few days. I bought a full size when it was 20 percent off at shoppers last week. Vichy is pricier but worthwhile. It has also a pleasant …Read more

I really like the finish. It is slightly dewy, glowing, and makes your complexion look slightly radiant and more youthful. I bought w3, and it was a pretty ok match for my light/medium Asian skin. Slightly orange, but preferable to the n3 which looks not very neutral either. I like the texture of the product but it still feels sort of heavy to me. The coverage is sheer but the luminous quality …Read more

Hmm, got a sample at sephora and am thinking of splurging on this foundation. The finish is very natural - slightly luminous but not shiny. The colour seems quite nice - I tried 5.5 colour, I'm a light/medium skin tone Asian with black hair, brown eyes, and fairly neutral skin tone.

Just the price is quite hefty at $65. Not sure if it is worth the price, I don't usually spend …

This is a favourite product for me. It makes your hair super shiny, and smooth. I wish it was more widely available in Canada. Used to be for sale at shoppers and Walmart. Now don't know where to get it. Not sure if v05 is now a discount/value brand?

I love this mascara. It has a comb applicator and that seems a little strange at first but it works well. It is pretty good at making my short, straight, Asian eyelashes look longer and more defined. I like the intensity of the black as well. The waterproof version holds curl applied with an eyelash curler. Comes off easily with Vichy 3-in-1 eye makeup remover. This is my everyday mascara.

This is not a good product:

I purchased this because the colour on the box looked good and it called itself a "superior premium hair colour". Tried the colour Brasilia which was (on the box) a shiny, rich, dark brown. My end colour looked like a flat black.

-when first mixed, it looks like a gel, but when applied becomes very runny and drippy and messy. I was …

I just tried this product since it was on sale at shoppers drugmart for $5.99 and I needed some new mascara since my stock was all dried out. I really like how it lengthens and the brush/comb makes your lashes nicely defined and not clumpy. I would defnitely buy this again. I will alternate this with L'oreal's voluminous....this stuff is pretty good!

I bought the medium and thought i liked it but the colour was too dark and looked orange on me, so I went down to the W123 colour and I found the texture of this product to be very thick and unappealing. I don't like the applicator even though it should be convenient to have a product that dispenses from a brush. It doesn't come out when you turn the dial once, and then when you keep …Read more
