- The Packaging is nice with a clear medium size mirror inside.
- The amount of product is convenient ( 9.5 G - 0.34OZ).
- Price is within the average affordable range.
- Easy to find in Egypt (in most drug stores).
|This is my shade "76 Soleil Cuivré"|
- I didn't find a large variety of shades and most of the shades has orange undertome which may look awkward on some skin tones.
|Here's a swatch of the color on my hand.|
- As you see in the picture, it really has an Orange tone, but still work ok with me.
- It is highly pigmented.
- The staying power is medium.
- The texture is soft.
- I find it not easy to blend, so if you use it make sure not to load the brush.

FACE SHAPE: OVAL OR OBLONG
*FACIAL FEATURES: A balanced or long face with relatively equal proportions.
*BEST HAIRSTYLES: Short or long, straight or curly, you can pull off just about any hairstyle because all of your features are well balanced. Try going for a style that highlights your favorite facial feature. Center parts can bring attention to your nose; eyebrow-skimming bangs can give focus to your eyes; or cheekbone-level layers will show off your lips.

*STYLE WARNINGS: Avoid height at the crown or short layers at the top of your head could potentially make your face appear longer and thus less balanced.

Don't forget that eating food containing Extravirgin olive oil is very healthy as well which will reflect on your skin (maintain your health will make you look younger and will help reduce wrinkles).

I have a combination-oily sensitive skin and I always had problems with skin care products as it either irritate my skin or cause my skin to break out. But since 04 months I started using the Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser. It is a very good cleanser. It cleans the skin without drying it out and the Purifying Micro-Pearls contained in it helps exfoliate the skin leaving it smooth & silky. In my view the product is worth buying and the size is pretty much convenient (04.4 OZ). Trust me, it will last you a very long time as a dime plop of it is more than enough for cleansing your face.
The packaging is a squeezing tube which allows you to get out the product without wasting much of it.
My overall rating: 09/10

The end of summer is the perfect time to show some skin. You want to look and feel fresh and natural with that doesn't feel heavy or melts away. The key to that fresh-faced look is all about the right mix of highlighting and mattifying goods and how you use them.
First, use a lightweight foundation--and use it sparingly!--concentrating on the areas that are the most uneven. I love La Prairie's Anti-Aging Foundation SPF 15. Follow up with a dusting a light translucent powder. By using a colorless powder you avoid the risk of mixing your foundation and powder into a color that no longer matches your skin.
For cheeks, start with a in a bright pink--trust me, it's flattering to all--and then follow it with a very small amount of shimmery cream blush right on the apples of the cheeks. TryIllamasqua Cream Blusher in Lies, but apply it sparingly to avoid looking like you have greasy cheeks. You can also use a cream highlighter in certain parts of your face. I couldn't live without Nars The Multiple in Copacabana; I use it in very specific places like the tip of the nose, the bow of the lip, above the eyebrow and on top of the cheekbone.
Now comes the most important step: Ensuring you counter any illuminating with strategic mattifying. If you go overboard with the highlighting you can look greasy and shiny. To avoid this, take a pea-sized amount of Laura Mercier Secret Finish--Mattifying and rub it between your fingers. Press firmly into the places you want to reduce shine--the sides of your nose, your chin and forehead, especially along the hairline.
By strategically placing your matte and shimmer products, you can easily create the illusion of dewy, healthy skin. Now go get your gorgeous on and enjoy these last few days of summer!

Focus your regimen on your primary skin concern like breakouts or aging and select your products accordingly.
Don’t overload on products. Too much of anything can cause irritation, strip skin of moisture, and make it more sensitive.
Don’t wash your face until you’ve washed your hands. If you use a washcloth, make sure it’s a fresh one every time so there’s no bacterial buildup.
When cleansing or exfoliating, use tiny circular motions upward and very gentle pressure.
Use warm water to rinse. Hot water can over-dry. Cold water won’t rinse off the cleanser.
Don’t over-clean your face. Cleansing more than twice a day can over-dry your skin.
Toner actually prepares your skin to accept moisture better. While skin is still damp, smooth on moisturizer to seal the moisture in.
It’s not just what you apply but also how you apply it. Take a few extra seconds to massage in moisturizer to spark circulation and enhance radiance.
Go gently when you apply eye cream. Dot in a full circle all around the eye. Never pull or tug. Use your ring finger to apply. It’s the weakest finger so you won’t apply too much pressure.
Smooth a little eye cream around your lips every day. The area around the lips, like the area around the eyes, is very delicate and requires extra care.
