I was so hyped for this palette I downloaded the Sephora app just to have early access to it (I got it the 1st day it was available). First, the packaging is gorgeous. The palette itself is very well designed and a great size for easy storage. The pans inside are a decent size. Not huge, but a good size especially considering a little goes a long way with this product. The blush and bronzer are very pigmented. The highlighters are not "blinding" but do have a pretty glow. The reason I'm giving 4 stars is because of the shades. These are not universally flattering. The blush is very bright and the highlighters will show up as the color they are in the pan (which isn't good for pale skin). Aside from that, the texture and formula is amazing. «
I tried a deluxe sample of this product. Initially I was excited as I had never tried this brand before. Ultimately, this product is not for me. That smell! Not a fan. Very strong, old lady like. I was hoping that it would smell fruity but it does not. I am sensitive to strong fragrance and this one is over the top. The product works well and my hair was clean, soft and shiny, but it didn't do anything spectacular that offsets the fragrance for me.
I bought this because of the great reviews I read and, I must say, it's all true. I do have oily skin but if I use a mattifying product on top (I use Hylamide Matte 12), it stays on all day and looks absolutely amazing. I don't know why but this honestly looks better on me than ANY foundation I have ever worn in my life and I have tried them all - MAC, Charlotte Tilbury, Cover FX. Every time I think I'll try a new foundation, I realise that nothing can compare to how natural and glowy this looks on my skin. I think at this point I'll just have to wear it forever. No matter how pale or tan I am, the colour manages to still suit my skin and look like I'm wearing nothing at all. I'm hooked, can't be without it now. It'll be in my makeup bag forever!

ve been using this for 3 weeks and I see the positive dynamics: my skin has already become more elastic, the post-acne gradually lightens. The first 7 days I had this "a very strong tingling but non-irritating sensation" (it's been said on the official The Ordinary site). I would recommend this product.
I wish as I could give this product 2.5 stars as I am very much 50/50 on this product! The light shade stick is lovely, the shade is perfect for the highlight part of your contour. It is really pigmented and it blends really well. It’s perfect to use alongside other contour products to create a built up flawless look. The brown shade however is awful... the blendability is shocking and it just makes a mess of your contour. I’m not keen on the shade either and the pigmentation is not good. I wish they sold them separately as I would buy the lighter shade over and over!
I wasn't expecting that much because this item is so cheap but it turned out to be really smooth, lovely shades, and great quality. Impressed with this very affordable product.I think they would look really lovely on a darker skin tone!
Review for: Rimmel London - 25Hour Lasting Finish Foundation - 200 Soft Beige 30ml more...
I originally ordered ivory however it was quite orange once on my skin and definitely not my match so if you are ideally pale i would suggest the light porcelain. I ended up getting light porcelain and that was more my colour even though it is quite pink under toned but it looks less pink on the face. However i really liked the formula, it doesn't make my face look cakey and blotchy, it spreads nice and evenly on my face. I wouldn't call it 'full' coverage, it's more medium to full coverage however it's very build able. I will probably buy this foundation again since the quality is amazing and shocking for the price. This foundation also lasts for a very long time and doesn't transfer to anything if you touch something with your face. I just wish that rimmel supplied a bigger variety of shades since there are only 7. Overall i recommend this product, just be weary of the colour match to your skin.
The Olay Total Effects 7 in One cream comes in a nice 50ml pump bottle with a clear safety cap. The pump is very easy to use and it dispenses a good dose. The cream is slightly beige in colour but it is not a tinted moisturiser so it will not colour your skin or work like a BB cream. It is not very thick and it spreads really nicely on your skin. It is absorbed quickly and won't leave your face sticky so it can be used under make-up. My skin feels very nourished and soft after use and I can feel the laughter lines by my eyes slowly fading.
This is an anti-ageing moisturiser which helps to even skin tone appearance and as it contains SPF15 it is great to wear every morning as it will give you UVA/ UVB protection.
I have used it for a week and I my skin feels very soft and smooth. I cannot see major smoothing of wrinkles, especially on my forehead, but it is still early days. I would definitely recommend this as a daily moisturiser.
The first time I wore this instead of my usual foundation I got so many compliments on how good my skin looked. It’s very easy to apply, buildable, quite good coverage and natural looking (covers my dark circles amazingly, so no need for concealer). Only downside is it’s a bit messy to apply and comes off fairly easy. I’ve tried using primers and setting sprays, although they help it’s still quite easy to come off if you accidentally rub your face.
