  1. Wow, just what i need! thx

  2. Hi Rae,
    Thank you for the new video posting!! I bought Lancôme teint ultra 24hr foundation a couple of months ago after watching your other youtube video and I like it very much!! I've been wearing it everyday and I love love love the lasting power and the finish!!! The only complain I have is that it doesn't apply evenly on the skin unless I use it with the foundation brush... I'm going to Sephora next week and I'm thinking of buying either D&G matt liquid foundation or Hourglass foundation.... Would you recommend one for me please?? I have oily combo skin & I do need to cover some acne scars on my face. As always thank you for your great work on your videos and honest opinion! Have a wonderful night!

  3. Hi Rae! I absolutely love your review and brought all if not most of my products thanks to your videos and reviews! My complexion is exactly like yours if not very similar. What is your shade when you have your tan? From the look of the video and the list I'm assuming all these colors are base on a non-tanned (your normal skin tone). I'm looking to purchase a good foundation for the summer but it's so hard >_<! Please advise, thank you!!
