I am not a person who typically goes out of the way to wear a highlighter, but I received this product in a vox box, and I have to say, I am impressed! It was easy to use, even for a highlighter newbie like me. You can apply with a light hand for day to day use, or amp it up and night. It is soft and creamy, and blends like a dream. I wore it to a wedding this weekend, and thought it was absolutely gorgeous!
I received this product in one of the limited edition Birchboxes this year and it is AMAZING. I normally wouldn't spend $15 for 2.5 oz of hand cream, but I will make an exception for this one. My hands feel so silky after I use it, and the light scent is fantastic.
As far as I'm concerned, this product is a GAMECHANGER for rosacea. It takes me less than 30 seconds to apply, and I feel like I am ready to walk out of my house. I can go to yoga or pick up groceries without feeling like I have to have a full face of makeup so people don't see my crazy skin. It doesn't feel like I have a thing on my face, so I can put this on with some lip balm and feel like I'm that girl who doesn't need any makeup at all! My skin does not look cakey AT ALL, feels soft and smooth to the touch. It doesn't transfer on my clothes or phone.
So now for the down side...I don't really think that it's truly a universal shade. I REALLY wish they would at least make it in light, medium, and dark. It's definitely a touch dark for me (but I always have the problem where my face, neck, and chest are three different colors, so I roll with it). And it's not as long lasting as I would want - I feel like I get about 6 hours, tops. However, if I use it with the MAC powder and Skindinavia setting spray and am REALLY CAREFUL to not touch my face at all, it will still look flawless at the end of the day. I'd love if they could figure out how to make it longer wearing without me needing to sit on my hands. Finally, it's on the pricey side - $39.50 plus $4.40 S&H if you get the set I did off QVC.
I am still totally willing to look past all of that though. I LOVE THIS STUFF. It makes me feel like I'm a normal person with normal skin, and you can't put a price tag on that. I ordered it on auto-delivery without a second of hesitation. I am officially an IT Cosmetics and Jamie Kern fan for life.
I only gave this four stars because it claims firming and I don't really know of any product that ACTUALLY does that; your best bet is diet and exercise. However all St. Tropez products are absolutely fantastic to get some color before a night out - I prefer One Night Only to this one but they all work really well.
Of all of the 7 zillion things I got for wedding presents, my pyrex is far and away my most used. I don't think I have this set exactly but I have something very similar and it gets used at least 3 times a week for the last 6 years. Everyone with a kitchen needs this in their lives!
I love my mini mac; you really can't beat this bag if you are looking for a classic crossbody. The hardware adds interest in a timeless way. It's also very versatile - it's the perfect bag whether you are going to the movies or on a date!
I love love love these packets for when I'm trying to cut back on diet coke. My favorite flavor is the lemonade, but fruit punch is a close second. These are easy, convenient, delicious, and low calorie.
