Liquid -Bourjois -Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation

I really like this foundation. I have it in 52 and it is a good match for a pale olive skin. Only thing I don't like: Does not last well.

I like that it is the only thing that does not crease on me . it blends very well. but not enough coverage for me.

I like the coverage but it really creases on me. Very reflective so very good for inner corner.

Very sheer but somehow I can feel it all day on my face and it stresses me out. I hate feeling it. Gets too shiny

I am really loving this foundation. I have sensitive, oily skin that's prone to cystic acne. This foundation doesn't oxidize, breakdown, or lose its coverage. It's skin-like, very lightweight, and doesn't sink into my pores like so many others do. I would definitely buy this again!

I like the color match. I am pale olive ( MUFE Y235) and shade 10 is good. Would be perfect if it was a little more yellow but at least it is not pink. The effect is beautiful but I get oily very quickly. in 2 hours I need to powder but I seem to be the only one with this problem. I don't even have a very oily skin..

This is a gem that not many know about. I use this with my Maybelline mascara. It makes my lashes thick and full. Not much of difference between wearing these and Dior. My eyes are also super sensitive but this is a gentle product. Highly recommended!

So scratchy and I don’t have sensitive skin. Throwing out and trying something else.

This foundation is amazing! I have combination skin and my nose seems to be my main problem area. By 4 hours into my work day my makeup will just wipe off or separate or just disappear. I can make it through my ENTIRE 8 hour work day and still be completely matte with this foundation. No foundation has ever been able to do this for me before. I have used: Revlon Colorstay, Kat Von D Lock It, Estee Lauder Double Wear, Mac Pro Longwear, Tarte Amazonion Clay and numerous others that claim to be longwear and just do not stay on my face. The coverage for me is on the higher end of medium. Not quite full coverage but it covers alot with one layer. This foundation is super sticky when you first apply it so setting with powder is a must. It is definitely not for anyone with dry skin and I would advise against applying under the eye area as it can dry out and cause the this skin in the area to look more wrinkly. This product can cling to dry spots so exfoliating and applying a good moisturizer is necessary. The packaging is meh for me I could go without the doe foot applicator but for only $6 at Walmart I really don't have much to complain about.

Mediocre foundation for me, gets really oily on my t zone and performs worse than other drugstore alternative. Colorwise 55 dark beige was a good match for my nc35 skin.


Polishes -OPI -Chick Flick Cherry

A one coat wonder!! A fabulous polish when times are busy. OPI's Chick Flick is a dream polish. It's a dark, deep cherry cream which I find perfect for winter. It goes on smoothly, the opacity, depth of color is excellent. The brush is one of OPI's best, a flatter, wide brush. It self levels perfectly. I put a coat of Seche Vite on top when it was dry but tacky to give it a super glossy look. I have a lovely manicure in less than 10 minutes!!!

Masks -Eau Thermal Avene -Soothing Moisture Mask

This mask is creamy and thick (almost a tiny bit sticky/gooey), unscented and the best of all, it is quick! You can remove it after 5min into the application.After that, you really feel your skin supple and hydrated. The only cons : the relatively high price (I bought it on sale at the Shopper's for 27CAD$, usually it is 32$? for 50ml) and I find that the hydration effect lasts only after the application, the following day my skin is back to its original state. The packaging is designed so that the air does not go into the tube, keeping it sterile, which is a plus :)

I love this mascara as it gave me long, voluminous lashes and does not clump at all. But then having said that it is a little dry but then the application is not messy and makes my lashes look naturally curly and thick. I love the brush as it applies the product evenly I don’t need to remove excess before applying and doesn’t transfer onto my eyelids. I haven’t experienced product transfer yet and is perfect to wear to work for the no makeup makeup look. Inexpensive and definitely a repurchase or buying backups.


Liquid -Este Lauder -Double Wear Light Soft Matte Hydra Makeup

on 11/17/2018 7:41:00 AM

foto

The canvas I'm working with: 40, combo skin with hormonal acne, mostly, but not entirely under control, some texture and a tendency towards dehydration. Slightly oily/normal in the summer, normal/dry in the winter. My skin has been quite good by my standards for the last year or so, but I do have a bit of flakiness on the nose going on pretty much constantly, in spite of regular exfoliation, large pores on the nose, sometimes acne and things like that. No wrinkles, yet.

A note on shades and formulation: this is definitely the new, reformulated Double Wear Light. I have never tried the old one, so I can't compare formulas, but I am curious about that.
I have it in shade 1W2, the lightest warm shade that was available where I got it, which is a decent match. I wear 1W1 Bone in the original Double Wear, and both shades are alright on me, but not perfect. 1W1 is a tiny bit on the light side, this one will probably be a bit dark in a month or two. All Estée Lauder shades have a bit too much colour for me. I have olive undertones, my best foundation matches are slightly less saturated, more grey, and these very easily look orange on me because of that. The shades are quite saturated, and many of them have strong peachy undertones, even the N shades. Regular Double Wear 1N2 Ecru is quite orange on me, for instance. The yellow W undertones work much better, but can look a bit too yellow.

Ideally, I want a foundation that covers my occasional breakouts, doesn't emphasise flakes too much, doesn't produce polkadot pores, adheres well to my nose - that's often a problem for me - and looks at least somewhat skinlike. Creasing generally isn't a problem for me, but caking and separation sometimes is. I got this a while back because I wanted more of an evening/going out sort of foundation that would give more coverage and a less transparent, more perfected and "done" sort of finish than the Pixi H2O Skin Tint. I really love that one, and MAC Face & Body, but they do not give a lot of coverage. Long wear would be nice, too.

I have the original Estée Lauder Double Wear and wear it occasionally, but I find it very unforgiving on my texture and prone to caking up on me, so I always mix it with lighter foundations, like the aforementioned MAC F&B or the Pixi tint. This sounded like it might have something like the longevity of the original Double Wear with a smoother, more skinlike sort of look. It does pretty much that, I find, and I do like it a lot more than the original Double Wear, but I don't love the finish the way I love the finish of the Pixi tint, for instance. It looks good and wears very well, but it does look like make-up.

I don't really reach for this when doing evening make-up. I reach for this when I want a bit more coverage and/or longevity than the Pixi tint or MAC F&B on an everyday basis. I can apply this very fast with my fingers before work in the morning, straight on top of sunscreen, set it with a tiny bit of powder and count on it for at least 12 hours, usually more. I took this off after 16 hours yesterday night, and it looked fine, really. It was creasing a little around my nose by then and had worn off a little, but most of it was still present on my face and looked perfectly nice. Not very shiny, not cakey, not patchy, not separating in the slightest. It really does wear extremely well on my skin. Unlike the regular Double Wear and most other foundations under the sun, it doesn't settle very much in the pores on my nose, and it's really not bad at all on the flaky bits either. Fast and easy application, decent coverage, looks a bit more like make-up than I like, but wears reliably well? This is a very good everyday foundation for me. It's not a mind-blowingly beautiful evening foundation, but I like it and wear it.

Misc Beauty Tools -shu uemura -Eyelash Curler

Best lash curler I have ever bought. It was a little daunting to use at first but I managed to get the hang of it and now is my go to for curling my lashes. Very comfortable to use, unlike the other ones where you were in danger of accidentally crushing your eyelids if you placed it too close to the lash line. I have recently discovered this brand and their products and their lash builder is the best as it made my lashes look longer and thicker and this lash curler did not disappoint!
