This perfume gives me major Victor Rolf Flower bomb vibes. It has that same warm, mature, vanilla scent. I've been wearing this everyday for the past couple of weeks, applying it on my neck and wrists around 6AM. It lasts the whole day but starts to fade away around 2/3PM. A faint scent still remains by the time I get home (6PM). I would definitely recommend this perfume for your go-to fall/winter perfume! It reminds me so much of the holidays. I appreciate the warmth and longevity.
I have tried a variety of shades and what i've noticed from them is that the formula is very creamy and comfortable. I had to knock off one star because for the "matte" shades.... they were just not matte at all. I would describe them mostly as a satin finish. Maybe I just have high expectations for matte finishes, but I did not feel their matte formula was matte, so beware!
This gives the perfect warm glow to my medium-olive skin! It blends so smoothly and naturally into my skin for a radiant bronzed look. I apply this with a large fluffy fan brush across the perimeter of my face as well as my cheeks for a soft tan appearance. I wish I would have purchased this sooner!
My favorite drugstore foundation was initially the maybelline fit me matte and poreless, but SURPRISE! Wet N Wild takes the cake. I have oily-combination skin and this foundation works PERFECTLY for me. I went to disneyland with this (and it was 90+ degrees) all day, and when I got home my skin was still flawless! Keep in mind, I did use primer and setting spray. This foundation blends just beautifully and has a wonderful matte finish. It's also super affordable, WOO! The color selection is a bit difficult, golden beige is just a taaaad too light for me but it works out in the end! I would strongly recommend for my oily gals out there!
This cleanser is a little to drying and stripping. My face felt very 'squeaky' clean, which is not necessarily what I'm looking for in a cleanser. I was talked into purchasing this cleanser after visiting skin laundry for their facials, which I also would not recommend. You get a pretty good amount of product, but I don't feel this is the best cleanser on the market.
I received a free deluxe sample of this from one of my sephora orders and it's one of the few products I actually use in the set of samples I received! I never really realized how important it was to use SPF on your lips, but in reality the skin on your lips is quite thin and sensitive! I have a habit of picking at my chapped lips and biting them, and from all the sun exposure I have a bunch of sun spots on my lips. I don't hate the spots, to be honest... but they aren't good for me at all! This lip balm provides some sun protection on my lips, which we all need. I highly recommend this especially for its minty flavor and moisture it provides.
Let me preface this by explaining my skin type. I have a warm medium skin tone with oily-combination skin with lots of acne scars and a couple of blemishes. This foundation has a satin-to-matte finish on my skin with medium-to-full coverage. When I initially used this, it accentuated the dryness on the sides of my nose but then I learned to use a moisturizing primer in my dry spots and that solved my issue there! When i figured out the best way to prep my face for this foundation, I started to love it even more! I still get a little oily on my forehead by the end of the day, which isn't THAT bad... since my forehead is literally an oil slick. I just need one pump of this, so this foundation will last me a while! The packaging is also BEAUTIFUL! I love it so much. Last power is solid as well. I had to knock off one star for the extra prep work before application.
When in doubt, I run to this foundation. This is my favorite foundation in the drugstore and I have oily combination skin. I personally think this is a pretttttty close dupe to the popular estee lauder double wear foundation -- just not as long lasting. It has a medium to buildable coverage and does not look cakey at all! It's super easy to blend and doesn't feel heavy at all on your face. It claims to have a matte finish, but in my eyes it's more of a satin-y finish, which is even better since it won't look TOO drying. They have a pretty wide range of shades, for being a drugstore brand. It just needs a pump and this would be PERFECT.
I received this as part of my ipsy bag one month. While I do enjoy the color and scent, the product is not long lasting at all on your lips. I would probably have to reapply this every hour or so, which is not ideal. The color is beautiful, but if it lasted more than an hour I would definitely consider repurchasing this. I haven't tried this on my cheek yet, I honestly don't plan on it. It's a little to liquidy for my comfort for me to apply on my cheeks. Just personal preference.
