I have had a bit of a love hate relarionship with this product ! The colour selection isn't upto much and I don't think the shade I have really compliments my skin tone. I have is product in the colour 'light'. I find that sometimes the powder is too thick and hard to work with. I think it's far too pricey and doesn't really live upto much. I have loved every product I have ever had from smash box and this was a bit off a dissapointment !! I have never broke out whilst using this powder and found it left my skin looking flawless in the winter time. I found my self having to touch this product up a lot during the day and as I am currently in college it was annoying having to spend most of y breaks touching up powder! I absolutely love the packaging on this product ! I love the fact that you can shave off as much or as little product and I find it helps keep the product sanity as you aren't sipping dirty brushes into all the time. I would reccomend this product to some one who's maybe on a Higher budget. I can rem ener paying around £45 for this but I just researched a little and found you can now get it for around £30 ! If you are unsure on this product you can a,ways ask one of the lovely ladies at the smash box counters for a sample :)!
This foundation is a great comparison to MAC studio fix fluid. I can not remember which shade I bought this in (asnive used it all up and I mixed what I am guessing was the lightest shade and 330 natural tan together to get my colour). I bought this foundation as it was in one f boots 3for 2 offers so I thought why not ! I have actually used up two bottle of this foundation bit stopped using it as it helped me re discover my love for studio fix fluid. This foundation feels lightweight and when applied carefully can make you look flawless ! This foundation claims it can stay in place for upto 16 hours. This is a lie as I found my self touching up after just 4 hours ! I never had a breakout using the foundation. I don't think it's suitable for summer as its a bit too much. I really don't like the packaging. I hate glass bottles and I hate that their is no pump on the product. I found my self wasting a lot of the foundation although I shouldn't complain as it is really cheap ! I bought this in the oily/combination formula as I have oily akin and I would reccomend this to every one ! Lovely cheap foundation.
I bought this product in shade 1.2 and found it perfect for my skin tone. I didn't intend to b this item but whilst on my lunch break from college I stumbled across it at my local debenhams counter and as it had just been relaxed I found it impossible not to buy it ! I bought this foundation just before Christmas and used it a lot yet there's still quite a bit of product left. I think you get exactly what you pay for and I think this is an amazing foundation. This is my go to foundation if I can't decide what else to use. Like all of my foundations I use Smash Box photo finish primer (purple one) and found that this foundation lasted around 8 hours unlike the 15 it claims to. I also found that it doesn't stay in place properly in warmer weather. I love the packaging on this product as you can see exactly how much you have left and the pump is really useful. The coverage is great, it helps to conceal smaller spots and give you a lovely even skin tone. I will defiantly be re purchasing this foundation !
I adore this blush ! This blush is easily my most reached for product. I love the coraly color and is perfect for anytime of the year ! I also love the smell of this product ! The packaging is amazing and you defiantly get your money's worth out of this product asi have had mine for coming up two years and have only just hit pan ! I must use this blush at least 4 days a week too ! I would defiantly recommend this product to anyone !
I hate this moisturiser so much. It made my skin really oily and broke me out ! I don't reccomend this for anyone wih oily/combination skin as it makes your skin shiny and really unnatractive. The packing is awful and messy. It just looks like a tube of paint. I defiantly won't purchase this again. I think it was a wasted money as it cost around £20 and I only used it twice !! Awful product.
I adore this foundation ! I purchased it in January this year and still have a lot of it left ! A little goes along way with this product and it is very blendable. I used it a lot through out spring time when it was getting a little too warm to wear a full coverage foundation. As I have oily skin I was worried about this foundation making me break out as I had read reviews online prior to purchasing it and found a lot of girls had discovered this foundation had caused breakouts. This was not the case with me and I found it didn't break me out. I love how small and compact the packaging is, it's great for travelling and I love that the packaging is plastic and not glas.

I absolutely adore this foundation ! I bought this in Ivory (I'm pure 4 sure) and it matches my skin perfectly. It is really lightweight and I can never actually feel it on my skin. It has a really thin consistency and I thought this wouldn't agree with my oily skin but it actually settled perfectly. I use smash box photo finish primer (purple one) under all my foundations and I found the this foundation stayed put all day. I love the packaging for this product as it pushes the liquid to the top, unlike most foundations which always has a tiny bit in the bottom you can't reach. I will defiantly repurchase this product !
I really do not like the packaging in Nars cosmetics. It gets really grubby really easily which instantly puts me off purchasing from this brand. I bought super orgasm along with orgasm after watching YouTube gurus rave about how amazing they are. To be honest I really don't like super orgasm. I can not stand the huge chunks of glitter in this product and the vibrant colour is too much for my skin tone. I wouldn't purchase this again once it's used up.
After teaching multiple YouTube gurus rave about this blusher I decided to order it along with super orgasm. I don't think this product lives up to its hype. I think this blusher is a little to bright for my skin tone and I also don't like the undertones in this blush. I think it is to vibrant for my skin tone. I will probably not re purchase this item once it is all used up.
I absolutely love this bronzer. I have the palest of pale skin yet it suits my skin tone perfectly ! It's not shimmery or orange at all, and I would recommend this product to anyone with plae skin. It also stays in place all day long. I think this product is worth it's price as I paid £23 and it lasted just short of a year. The only bad thing about this product is the material the packaging is made from as it gets really mucky and grubby easily.
