IT'S BASICALLY A LIPSTICK BALM. I RATHER USE BURTS BEE'S LIP BALM AND PUT A LIGHT LIPSTICK OVER TOP.

This is an excellent foundation! I used the sample from Sephora for one day. Loved the perfect color match on me and the super lightweight texture. My skin looked flawless.

I have combination skin with dry cheeks and a moderately oily t-zone. I moisturized and primed my skin before applying the foundation. I also used a pressed setting powder over it to maximize the control of my oily t-zone. I just had to use blotting powder a few times during the day. It was gorgeous.

Now here's the problem. I have very sensitive skin and I have to treat general allergies (hay fever in the Spring, cats, dogs, etc). After wearing this foundation for only one day, my skin was already forming inflamed little bumps when I washed it off at night. And my overall face was tender to the touch. The product has pineapple and papaya fruit extracts. I learned from another reviewer that these are known irritants for people with sensitive skin.

So if you have sensitive skin, definitely wear the Sephora sample first before proceeding with a full bottle. And if you don't have sensitive skin, I know that you will love this product!

I appreciate this concealer. It's a close dupe to the NARS radiant concealer, but is a bit watery/runnier compared to NARS. I feel like the biggest difference is the consistency of the two. This is too runny and didn't cover enough dark circles for my liking, but it blends well (almost too well). Sometimes I felt like when I blended it out with a sponge I would keep having to add more product on because it was getting soaked into the sponge or was too sheer. I tried other applications, but the felt like blending out with a sponge as opposed to a brush gave it a better outcome. I also found the range of shade lacking and would rather spend the extra money on a product that gives me the coverage I'm looking for and a good color match.

Overall this is a good concealer if you are blessed without dark circles, but for me, it just missed the mark. I do however recommend it to friends that just needs a little bit of help (I need A LOT) and they love it.

I tried BB creams. This one is more like a tinted moisturizer. Not enough coverage. Save your money for Korean BB creams like Missha or Atomi. I'm not getting paid for this but I have tried different foundations and I always go back to BB creams. I hope I'm helping you save money and time.

My mom likes this brand lipstick so far. (Latest one purchased 2016) She is very picky with her lipstick. She says it's smooth , pigments are beautiful keeps her lips soft. If it is reformulated and not for the better she will know as she is very sensitive with cosmetics. I hope, specially high end brands will focus on improving high quality of their product and not end up using cheap fillers or alternative cheap items. Customers who buy for quality and not brand will know . Currently, my mom also uses Bite lipsticks and Ysl .

This is an awesome travel palette. I love that it's versatile on various skin tones and can go from simple to foxy in a matter of seconds. Blends well and does not get muddy when you layer the shadows over each other. It smells amazing and is travel friendly. It performed better than expected.

I have this in Medium, which I feel is a better fit for my colouring than the Light kit would have been. The first time I tried this kit, I was a little dumbstruck at the quality... and then deflated. It is SO. MUCH. BETTER. than my NARS Laguna/Orgasm Duo compact, which set me back more than three times what this cost. The upshot is that at least I can use the bronzer in this anywhere I feel I need a touch of colour. The highlighter is a gorgeous champagne which can get a little blinding, but if that's your thing, hey you're going to love it. The blush is super-similar to Orgasm, minus the chunky glitter particles, which is also a plus. I love this compact.

I bought this in 2 shades because I love it so much. I have biscuit which I am currently using and custard for the winter season. It blends like a dream! It does crease a bit without powder, but I usually set it with my Laura Mercier translucent powder, which is the ultimate duo. It's a bit pricey for concealer, but I find that it's worth the money. I've tried the Maybeline Fit Me "dupe", but I feel like this is the real deal and the better consistency. I've tried many concealers ranging from high end to drug store, but this is my favorite. When I'm packing for a trip, this is one of the first things I throw in my bag. I wish they made a small travel version of biscuit as well.

This is my go to high coverage foundation when I want to look flawless. It photographs well and is long lasting. I don't like using this as an everyday foundation because I find it a bit heavy feeling. Blends well. I prefer using a stippling brush for that airbrush finish. I can't wear it for more than 2 days straight or I'll start to break out. I was matched to NC40.
