    I'm so happy to have found your channel! I'm 39 and my skin is dry-ish and I was thinking about trying this one out, but now I'm going to pass.

    I am loving the application also but as the day goes on doesn't look as well . I'm 53 and have dry skin and it feels so good on the skin . I have tried so many and I have good skin with a few lines and I can't seem to find a foundation that feels good and doesn't feel like a mask that has good coverage . It looked really pretty on you though at the beginning of the day ! I trust all your recommendations you are usually spot on . Thanks Marnie !

    I was just about to buy this since they sent me a coupon etc. I really appreciate this video. I'm still trying to figure out my best foundation. Thank you Marnie. โค๏ธ

    Thanks for the review Marnie! Your hair looks so pretty! I've gone through a ton of foundations this year, trying to find the right color, staying power, weight, etc…and really, really like the new EL DW Nude. (I had even tried the original DW and it was too heavy for my 55 year old dry to normal skin.) I took a tip from Wayne Goss on a recent video on how to set your makeup without using a lot of powder and it makes the EL DW Nude set perfectly. After I apply the foundation and my concealer, I use a setting spray, let it dry for a minute and then lightly, lightly powder under my eyes and my face. Then I go on with my makeup application and spray one last time when I'm done, and then finish with Mac mineralize skin finish powder (again lightly) and WOW! The foundation looks beautiful and stays all day. Just another way to try it if anyone is having problems with it lasting throughout the day.

    I am interested in the YSL All Hours Foundation but haven't been able to get a sample. It would be nice if you could review this one. I couldn't find it at Nordstrom but I think Nieman Marcus would have it. Thanks for the EL review. I have dry skin to & typically what has worked for you works for me so I do pay close attention to your reviews. Love the hair by the wayโฃ

    Great review and thank you for the matching tips. I need all the help I can get with that! Can you review MLM foundations like Argonne and Younique (bb and cc creams and powder foundations, too). I have friends that sell both and I want to support them…but I want to know I'm getting good stuff, too!

    I thought it looked great in the beginning. But it didn't hold up to its name very well, darn it! Have you tried RIMMEL Magnif'eyes nude edition eye contouring pallet? I just got it and love it! But…I would love to see you do a tutorial with it so I can learn your tricks and tips.
