I have to say that it’s my personal preference, I dislike the packaging so bad, it’s a dropper so it’s real messy. Other than that is you only get 20 ml which is less than most foundation and it’s pricey. I have shade sf07 which is perfect for my nc25 skin. I really like the way it sit on my skin, looks like I don’t even have foundation at all, this is watery foundation and pretty light weight. If you don’t want full coverage foundation or don’t need much to cover then this is for you. I won’t rebuy this cause it’s expensive and I want to try another foundation.

So yeah, this review is going to be scathing. But look, when I spend $57 + tax on a palette I expect it to perform better than shadows from the dollar store and that was not what I got. I expect them to be buttery, and blendable, and most of all pigmented (or at least buildable, ffs). These shadows are none of those things. I'm not exactly dark skinned, and even with a good layer of primer I could barely get these colors to show up on me. If I'd try to build or blend them they'd turn muddy and more closely resemble the colors in my Naked I palette than anything else. Even the shimmer shadows were poorly pigmented and lackluster. I'm just so deeply disappointed by this. I LOVE the colors in the pans - have been dying for a cool toned palette with these exact shades -, but I just cannot get these to translate to my skin. I've tried multiple primers, applying wet, etc., and nothing seems to really work. But honestly, with a palette that costs this much you shouldn't have to resort to those kinds of things. Period.

I was able to snag a travel size pretty cheap on ebay. Oh boy do I love the lip pencil. I love to wear it alone or with a tiny bit of lip balm on top. It goes on so creamy yet prescise and firm at the same time. It is the best lip pencil ever. I am looking for one at a cheaper price point but will probably splurge eventually when I run out. I jave the shade minimal. It makes me feel gorgeous and makes my lips look full. There may be a good dupe out there so do your research. I will go ahead and splurge on it when I run out and save money on things like mascara and foundation.

I have always been scared of contouring for some reason. All of the over contouring on Instagram scares me but if you’re looking for the most natural fool proof contouring product this is it. I use the Kevyn Aucoin contouring brush and apply the shade medium (I’m nc20) to the hollows of my cheeks, sides and tip of my nose, chin, forehead and temples. The result is chiseled without being too noticeable. I feel more polished and like I have cheekbones! I highly recommend this product to anyone nervous about contouring.

This has got to be the cakiest concealer on the market. So why, as a lover of thin, watery, barely-there concealer, is this my favorite concealer? 1. This concealer is dominating. I am sure you have never heard a concealer described like that. In fact, it's not even a feature I could even dream about in a concealer. So, what does that even mean? Once this concealer is applied, it can beautify any foundation and simply dominate the beauty of the foundation. Usually the base (foundation) creates the strength of the overall look, but this concealer can dominate my most powerful foundations. So, you ask again, but what does that mean? Basically this concealer makes everything else fade into the background and becomes the beauty of the look. 2. This concealer is transformative. I basically call it skin in a jar. Do you want brand new skin? I mean, do you? Well, here you go. But seriously, it strongly enhances the appearance of your skin. Not that I was ever after that effect when I was in search of concealers (since I like natural makeup), but I could never have imagined such a profound effect. Somehow it powerfully beautifies your facial features and still looks like skin.3. This concealer is a workhorse. It isn't going anywhere. It is the only concealer I have encountered that does not need setting powder to stay on all day and yet still looks even better than it started.4. This concealer looks even better with time and makes any foundation look better with time. Whatever it does, the foundation follows.5. This concealer is emollient. While the consistency is thick and hyper-full coverage, it is smooth, creamy, dewy, radiant and hydrating, etc, which are often at great odds. If a thick concealer has all these great qualities, it is normally super matte in order to make it long-lasting. They have somehow managed to create all of these lovely qualities in a creamy concealer that stays creamy, comfortable and loving to the skin. What makes it marvelous is the consistency/texture allows it to work beautifully with all skin types. 6. This concealer is hyper-pigmented and you literally need a dot to do the entire face. This concealer can last as long as you want it to because so little goes a long way. 7. This concealer is easy to apply. It blends like a dream and melts into the skin when using your fingers. 8. This concealer wipes away all imperfections. The color correction in it eliminates all darkness/discoloration in your skin better than any concealer I have ever seen.9. This concealer is radiant. No product currently on the market (foundation or concealer) is as radiant as this product. It brightens your face exponentially. 10. This concealer has high foundation compatibility. It works/pairs with most foundations easily, especially because it is usually the major effect in the look ultimately.This means that you can buy this concealer blindly and likely it will work with whichever foundation you already have. Where this concealer is lacking is in versatility. It is too thick as an eyeshadow base, eyebrow sculpt and spot treatment. It isn't as impressive worn as a foundation. As under-eye concealer (with or without foundation) though it is foolproof and it's the best I have seen. I especially love this concealer paired with Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation. This concealer creates a glamorous look for everyday and any day. It may be a thick concealer but the blendability, consistency, ease-of-application, color correction, skin-enhancing effects, skincare properties, brightening effects, pigmentation, lasting performance, foundation compatibility, overpowering beautifying effects, long-lasting product, etc.....clearly, the list goes on and on. You pay for much and get much more. It is called a sensual skin-enhancer and it makes your skin look simply irresistible.
