really nice foundation

I'm in total agreement with the above review. My skin is an oil slick so this is a perfect foundation for me. Impressive longevity for oily skin types. The shade range runs deep, though; I purchased N3 and I should have purchased N2. So that's two reviews where the shades run deeper than expected. I didn't have any issue with this foundation settling into fine lines, but I used a small amount (all you need) and applied it using the JUNO & CO. Microfiber Fusion Sponge ($6, sweet), which creates a totally smooth canvas with every foundation I've tried it with. But this foundation seems to having a smoothing effect all on its own, as well, even though it dries to a matte finish. I'm quite pleased with the formula.

surprised, disappointed

I bought the 202 Microliner Brush, the 253 Arrowhead Laydown Brush Small, the 203 Micro Angled Liner Brush, and the 212 Tightliner Brush. I agree with the other reviewers in terms of their performance as brushes. However, the black handles are cheaply painted and the least bit of water exposure turns them from black to a milky, murky splotched up mess. Doesn't detract from their performance, but spoils the experience for me. I found some precision brushes by a company named Japonesque which are actually even better for precision work ... and they hold up just fine to water exposure.

a worthy splurge, I'm afraid

I couldn't resist the look of this Body Heat quad and I typically like to make my own palettes. This is the first eye shadow quad I've ever owned where I don't believe the colors can be duped, certainly not all in one quad, and they're even prettier in person. So hot and so pretty! The formula, of course, is as good as it gets, so I'm very happy with this particular splurge. Perform beautifully wet as well. Is it worth it? That's always a subjective question because, yeah, it's overpriced. That said, I'd do it again ... and I may very well get a back-up.

delighted with book

First, I have to say that it came in unbelievably pristine packaging and the book itself is lovely enough to place next to my favorite art books on Goya, Van Gogh, et al. This was a pleasant surprise to me. As for the contents, I headed straight for the Eye Phi tutorial as I was so intrigued by Wayne Goss's video tutorial on this eye makeup technique that I wanted to learn more. It really helps me to have the step-by-steps in sequential picture format to refer to. Wayne Goss is adorable and he did simplify it down in his video, so I'm sort of melding the two delivery systems to perfect the technique on my eyes.

I've never read a makeup tutorial book before, but Wayne Goss was spot on to say this is a treasure-trove of information. Both the photographs and the step-by-step instructions are incredibly easy to follow, and I'm definitely not a makeup artist. I look forward to reading the entire book one stunning stratagem at a time.

not for oily skin

I really didn't know how to rate this because I can't speak to those who have dry skin. My skin is so oily it's an untapped oil reserve. I applied as directed on freshly washed skin and allowed it well over 10 minutes to absorb. I was careful to apply it sparingly. It never "absorbed" past the point of feeling tacky to the touch. Tried this two mornings, rinsed it off both times. Not how I want to start a face day. I've been pleased with the Instant Perfection Serum and I add a drop of the Acid Fix to Retin-A at night which amps up the exfoliation process nicely. (There are other products with friendlier price tags that perform these same tricks, though.) Conclusion: The Omoressence is NOT for those with combination to oily skin types. Intuition tells me that the Omorovicza line in general is quite rich and perhaps best intended for very dry skin types alone.

agree with Sharokina; fantastic product!

I have a full head of very fine blond hair which has been highlighted. As with all Oribe products, I think people are getting the wrong impression because it's so very easy to overuse. It takes just the tiniest amount. Used this way, the price points don't hurt so much and the results are simply gorgeous. Makes my hair feel healthier and actually gives it more volume, bounce and movement; the opposite of weighing it down. I'm talking pea-size amounts. I've found the same to be true with the Oribe Gel Serum and the Curl Control Silkening Creme. These are my three go-to styling products and sometime I mix them. Never less than thrilled with the way my blah hair actually has the potential to become wavy and alive. I just can't overestimate how little product you need.

my lips made WAY better!

For reference, I don't care for "nude look" lipsticks or matte lipsticks and I don't like the sticky feel of lip gloss. I've worn Tom Ford Ultra-Shine Lip Color in Nubile on several occasions now. The texture is divinely moisturizing without compromising on full color saturation. It's shiny, but not like a lip gloss; just a lovely, light-reflective sheen. On my neutral light skin tone, the shade Nubile is a deeper, richer, more youthful version of my natural lip color. If I were to name this shade I'd call it "First Orgasm Full Flush." And I'd tell NARS to roll over rover and let this Real Orgasm take over. Will have to try some other shades because the texture is so yummy, and stock up on Nubile, since it appears to be limited edition.
