I used this foundation way back in college. I loved this foundation. Controls my oilies a bit and it matches my skin tone really. I would've probably continued using this if i didn't find my way to MAC studiofix.
Although I think BE is the grandma of all mineral makeup, i couldn't bring myself to like it. This has very light coverage and made my face shine. A shine that ain't good. Yeah, a little goes a long way in application but as for the the staying power, it doesn't go a long way. And worst of all, this product made me itch! I am a fan of mineral make up but I'd definitely choose foundation from small mmu companies over this product.
My HG foundation! I'm an NC30. I wear this alone as it sometimes tend to cake on me as i have oily skin. I've read somewhere that a lot of ladies broke out with this. Other than being oily, I also have sensitive skin and I easily break out on some products. With MAC studiofix, i didn't! What I love about this baby is that I don't need much for touch ups. One compact lasts for 5-7 months on me, given that I have very oily t-zone. This is the one foundation I'll keep on buying.
I thought this was a pretty pink-peach shade when i saw it on the pan. I wasn't able to try it at the counter because i already had a blush on and just bought it. When i finally tried it on, t'was an uber disappointment for me. It was too pale and made my cheeks look dirty. I just sold it.
I have been a fan of this blush for 5 years now. I like pink marshmallow/strawberry tart and fresh papaya. True rose is a pretty colour too. Before i got myself a blush brush, i used to adore the brush that comes with it. Just right. As for the product itself, it lasts for 2-3 hours since i have oily skin. But other blushes last longer than that given my skin type. Other than that, this is a good blush. Would I buy again? Of course, I've been doing so for the last 5 years.

Pretty colour. I like the texture as well. Easy to blend. I just don't like the fact that i have to apply it thrice just to make the colour show on my cheeks. The pot is quite heavy too. And the major downer is it doesn't stay long. I know, i should shy away from non-powder blushes since i have oily skin. But i apply it with my foundation set and it couldn't even last for an hour. It just makes me sad because it's so pretty in the pot and when i swatched it.
This blush is L-O-V-E! I love the color and how it makes me glow. It's close to perfect for me sans the shimmer. But i can live with the shimmer, i just tap my brush to lessen it. The color pay off is great. But i like The Balm Hot Mama better, i get the same glow at a cheaper price. Plus it's uber expensive. But then it lasts for a long time so when you think longterm, it's worth it. The rubber casing easily gets dirty but it's good in keeping the blush from breaking when it falls. I'm giving this gorgeous blush a 4.
The shade is nice but i find it a little too boring for me. I would've liked it better if there's a little bit of shimmer. Perfect for those who go for neutral colors.

I've read good reviews about this blush so i gave it a try. It's so pretty! A good dupe of NARS orgasm. It looks a tad pale on the pan but i love the results when applied on my cheeks. Gives a natural flush and i love the glow. Lovely! However, i think it's kinda overpriced. So small yet expensive. Will i buy again? Yes, if both NARS Orgasm and The Balm Hot Mama get discontinued.
I am such a huge fan of blushes. I go for pink-peach, pink, and peach blushes. I bought this blush since it looked pretty in the pan. But i was majorly disappointed because it looked too orange-y on me. And i find it too matte. I like blushes with a little glow or shimmer. For reference i am NC30. I just sold it on eBay thinking it'll work on somebody else. So sad because i thought i have found the perfect peach blush.
