I can't tell you enough how great this foundation truly is! It covers, it conceals, it doesn't run off your face, it doesn't leave you with cake face, it does what it says.. And it stays! You absolutely DON'T need to use a powder to set it! I wasn't expecting much, I'll admit..but I was wrong! The consistency of this foundation felt light on the skin, yet it leaves you with a little glow on your face. It stood up to hazy, hot, and humid weather. It was easy to apply, easy to take off and hardly needed a touch up. (Ladies over 40,no need to set it with a powder. Doesn't leave you feeling like cake face. I can say that Loreal has stepped up big time with it's quality of cosmetics! Loreal is a sister company of Lancome..but at an affordable price! It doesn't settle into fine lines, laugh lines, ect.) I'm truly a huge fan of Lancome, but on a Loreal budget! A must have staple in your makeup bag..besides MY love of Bare Minerals powder foundation! ( As you can tell by my other posts). It's a creamy yet not heavy liquid foundation. You don't even need a concealer before hand, you can use this as an all in one. Now who wouldn't love a product like this?! I recommend trying it, buying it..use twice. If you still don't care for it, return it. But I promise you won't. Am I a spokeslady. For Loreal or Lancome? NOPE! Hmmmm.....maybe I should be though. Lol. Easy to remove at night. The key is to wash your face with a great moisture skin care line, always use a primer face, eyelashes ect. Do wear moisturizer on your face, neck, declotte area..always use a sunscreen also, 30 +.. You will see the difference and so will others. But you'll also feel better in the skin you're in, stay hydrated and eat a well balanced diet. It also matters what you put inside your body, that will make your outside of your body more glowy and more hydrated. Eye creams, more at nighttime. With Summer fast approaching, your body will thank you as the months turn into years! Trust Me! But also foundation shouldn't just be seen as a makeup..but it also does PROTECT your face from the environment and the environment can be harsh. Clean your brushes and applicators often, throw out those sponges and use new ones. We all get one face in life, take care of it well. Everyday you get a new chance to start over, please use that new chance! We might not be millionaires, but no one is preventing you to looking like one! I hope this helps! Until next time. Xo
This has to be my ultimate foundation!!! I have very difficult skin - dull, pitted acne scars, uneven skin tone and increasingly oliy thoughout the day! I feel as if I'm on a constant mission to find a foundation that helps me feel comfortable and happy in my own skin. And THIS is the closest I have come!!! :)
The finish is the most flawless I've ever been able to achieve, I can't explain how easily is glides onto my skin and it sets in such a way that my skin looks the best it ever has. I like a full coverage and like to 'look' like I am wearing makeup, so I build this foundation up to create my desired look.
Also, it looks great in pictures even with a flash - might seem like a strange point but I hate when a foundation either disappears or turns you into a ghost when a camera appears!!
If anyone out there is looking for a foundation to help perfect their difficult skin, and make you into the best possible version of yourself YRY THIS!!!!!!!! I could not recommend enough - yes it's pricey....but it's worth it!
Is this the best palette of all time or is this the best palette of all time? For me, at least, it is. I hadn't really tried anything from ABH before this palette blew up, but as soon as I saw swatches I knew this thing had to be mine. Very quickly it became my favorite palette because of its versatility and the amazing, mind-blowing, off the charts quality of the shadows. I can do day or night looks, subtle or dramatic looks, and anything in between with this palette. I wish it had one medium shimmery shade for lids, but otherwise this palette is practically perfect in every way.
I am so happy, it actually keeps my shadow looking good til I get home from work. We're talking about 11 hours and it's still on, a little faded maybe; but nothing, nothing else worked to keep my shadow on much past lunch. It would get all creased up and nasty and this, it works. It adds 10 seconds to my routine. I am so happy. The only downside is the price, it is outrageous, but I will pay.
If you are looking for any special or uncommon colors (like pink, blue, rainbow or glitter highlight colors), you may be disappointed. The Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow Palette is overall a great palette; quality and product wise. If you don’t have any proper highlight- contour palette and you need one- you should definitely get this one.
I bought "So Hollywood" Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator from the Anastasia website. I adore this highlighter! I didn't buy it until January of 2017 because I have so many highlighters that I just don't use already. plus it has been out of stock until the black Friday sale of 2016. I finally broke down and bought it. I'm so happy I did because this is my favorite highlighter by far! I like that it is a real gold highlighter. Not a gold glitter highlighter. It gives the skin a dewy glow not a glittery highlight. I like a highlighter that will make the skin look glowing wet if you get what I'm saying. Most highlighters have specks of glitter and shimmer so when the light catches it you can actually see the glitter and/or shimmer on the face. I don't absolutely hate that but I perfer the dewy glow of a shimmer glow. It also has a very different texture then your average highlighter. Which makes me think this is a poured product and not a pressed. Pressed products have that powdery texture to where this product has literally a buttery texture that I'm in love with. I apply my highlight with a sponge or beauty blender because for me it's so much easier to control where the product goes because my face is so small. If I use a brush (because I have yet to find the perfect size for my face) to apply my highlighters it's to much and will completely take over my entire look to where it looks like I did a full face highlighter challenge. Not a good look! I just dab the sponge into the product and pat on my face where desired. You can see the glow as soon as it touches the skin. plus it's so easy to build up for a dramatic look or applied lightly for a nice natural sun kissed soft glow. What it reminds me of is when the sun rays hit wet skin right before the sun is getting ready to set! ooohhh how I love it!! The price of this highlighter is on the expensive side but it is worth it and a little bit of product goes a long way so it will last me forever. The packaging is normal to me. I have seen other reviews where people are saying they think it's cheap but I don't think it is. I think it's just like everyone else's packing out there. Black or silver compact with a mirror inside. I'm not bothered by it. I think it's just fine! Overall it's a great product that I will definitely repurchase if it stays in stock and I would recommend to anyone!
Bought on a whim at Sephora after an employee recommended trying it. I've been using these almost daily for about two months and, I have to say, I really love the formulas. They are fairly pigmented and easy to blend. The colors are super flattering and just perfect for my very fair, freckled, neutral skin. I even love the packaging. It's very simple, but well-made. The package is a suede-like, matte black plastic duo and heavy for what it is. Very smooth and soft. You'll love touching it. The only con I can find is the shimmer aspect. These are pretty freaking shimmery. I don't mind being "dewy" or even BLINDING, but they tend to emphasize pores on the cheeks. I would love, love, love if they put out matte versions of their blushers and bronzers/contours.
Review for: Seaside (light skintones), Laguna (light to medium skintones) more...
Matte bronzer takes on a new dimension enhanced by the warmth of natural light. Designed with Soft Blurring Technology, this innovative powder captures the light and diffuses imperfections for soft-focus bronzing that enhances and entrances. Smooth. Silky. Weightless. Effortlessly delivers a wash of allover color or layers for concentrated warmth. A translucent matte finish allows the complexion to show through for the most natural effect. Skin looks like skin—just warmer, softer, and more perfected.
I am so surprised at the low ratings and dissatisfaction about this contour/highlighting stick. I find myself using it every day. It is absolutely instant - draw the dark and light lines and dab until they are blended. It takes seconds and it looks natural - unlike the powder contour highlight kits that can look muddy and sparkly and fake even when blended for a long time. This never looks fake, and there is no need for struggling to blend with brushes. The fingertips do it all. Of course it will wear off if you blend with a sponge or anything that wipes it right off. It's the perfect consistency to become one with the skin and leave the exact shade and light effects that you want. I've already worn the tube down to about half. I love it and will keep on buying it. No effort, beautiful results, a wonderful product.
