I'm quite torn on this product.

First and foremost, my foundation is absolutely flawless with practically no effort when I use this product. I've so far used it with MUFE HD, YSL Perfect Touch and Laura Mercier (wet/dry) Powder Foundation. With all 3, absolutely perfect looking face.

The downside, I wind up using 2x the product that I normally do if I use my …

Liquid - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Mat Velvet + Matifying Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

This is a very good, long wearing, medium to full coverage foundation that lasts me all day, controls oil and looks beautiful on.

Personally, I don't like such heavy coverage for day time wear but for evenings (especially when there is drinking and dancing (and sweating) to be had!) and the last thing I want to worry about is touch ups, this is perfect.

This is a fuller …

For me, this is the perfect summertime foundation. The coverage is incredibly sheer and lightweight (will not cover pimples or discoloration) but Oh My!!! It instantly transforms my 35 year old skin with pore issues and the very slight beginnings of fine lines under my eyes in to a glowing, radiant, fresh faced girl.

It's amazing how a foundation so sheer and light can …

If you want a medium coverage foundation that will last all day, control oil and make your pores seem like canyons while not forgetting to accentuate every fine line you have (and some you didn't even know you had to start with), then this foundation is for you!

I was really excited to try this as the girl in Sephora was RAVING about it (she was also 22 and didn't have a …

I am *really* disappointed in this product, especially from the good reviews I'm reading here.

Pros: Medium coverage
Hides pores decently
Lasts all day (more than 16 hours!)
Scent is ok (watermelon), much less than other YSL foundations and it wears off in less than a minute.
Doesn't make my eyes tear up (my eyes are sensitive to …

*Summertime HG * I adore this for many reasons:

1. It provides anywhere from light to full coverage depending on how you apply it.

2. It doesn't cake up and I can even brush some over concealer under my eyes and it looks good all day (I'm 35! ladies around my age know what I'm talking about here).

3. My skin looks absolutely perfect all day long (I …

I got this 75% off at Sephora so I figured I'd try it out.

Honestly, this reminds me of a thicker version of Maybelline Great Lash. Yes, it's very black (pro!), but it makes all of my lashes stick together and takes quite a while to dry.

It does come out ok and if I put another mascara on top, my lashes look absolutely fantastic!!! But why go through all that …

My husband is on his third large bottle of this and I'll be the first at Sephora when he starts to run low. This is simply a gorgeous, manly, licorice-y, scent that makes me swoon. The dry down isn't too sweet or sharp and lasts and lasts.

It's definitely unique enought that my girlfriends ask what is it that he wears so they can buy for their husbands and …

This has got to be one of the worst products I've ever tried because of people 'raving' about it. I truly don't get it. The commercial says that a subtle glow will emerge after 4-5 days. Well let me tell you, after one application (and I'm not a moron, I can apply this stuff according to directions and of course I exfoliate before), within hours I had big bright orange …Read more

I can't believe all the positive reviews on this product. I'm giving this 1 lippie simply because it does absolutely nothing aside from just being a clear gloss. My lips tingled for a whopping 15 seconds and I had absolutely no visible change in color, size or fullness of my lips. I may as well just buy a $0.99 clear gloss for that.

There are much better (and better priced) …
