    Chanel Double Perfection Compact Matte Reflecting Powder Makeup

    The best powder foundation that I always come back to

    I don't know why I go off and try other foundations when this one goes on flawlessly every single time and matches my skin tone perfectly. Sure it's pricier (over $50 for a compact) but when I add up all the other attempts I've bought over the years, I'd have saved more money if I just stuck to this. I must remember this the next time I get tempted elsewhere.

  • Dior Diorshow Mascara

    Dior Diorshow Mascara

    The mascara I've been looking for all my life

    For a long time, I thought my HG mascara was Definicils. But even with that product, I would eventually have the same problem I had with all other mascaras, where it would go on too drippy, too smeary and ultimately too clumpy. It seemed like the only good mascara for me was when the tube had been opened for a while and was half dried out. Then it would work perfectly for a while until it dried out completely and was no longer usable. But the DiorShow formula is dry to begin with, so it works as well the first day as the last day, with no wand wiping or Q-tip cleanup required. And as a previous reviewer has noted, it really does give you the closest thing to runway lashes w/o having to actually glue some on. Best of all, it doesn't take much precision to apply perfectly every time. Even the lower lashes just take a tiny swipe and go, and voila, perfect coverage that lasts all day long. I used to think that women who said they could go w/o any makeup except for mascara were crazy, but now I know that I could do the same if the mascara was DiorShow. The original is the best - accept no flankers!

  • Cle de Peau Beaute Correcteur Visage Concealer

    Yes, $68 is a high price for a stick concealer. BUT...if one of the 3 shades matches your skin tone, this will be the best $68 you ever spent on a stick concealer. It covers completely, it blends perfectly and it stays put all day long. You don't need very much product, so one tube can last for months and months (I'm just starting on my 2nd tube and it's been over a year since I bought the 1st one). The very limited palette means that it will not be the best for every person, but it's good enough that you should try to find a counter where you can put some on to see if any of the 3 shades match you. It is especially good at covering up spots, marks and scars, even better than my long lamented discontinued Shu Uemura Mark Cealer. Even at $68, I've saved all the cumulative $10 here, $20 there for all the less expensive but ultimately less effective concealers. It's my HG concealer and I'll continue to rebuy as I use it up. I wish I could find such a reliable product in all other categories.
