Powders -Smashbox - Halo Hydrating Perfecting Powder

I really love this powder. I use it over my thin layer of liquid foundation to swipe my impurities. It goes on very well, and it absorbs into my skin rather quickly. With this powder I would say that less is more. It also sticks to my skin throughout the day, and I don't have to reapply or do any touch-ups. Overall a very good product!
I really like the coverage of this foundation. It gives my skin a healthy look, and it sticks on throughout the day. However, it's not the best foundation I've tried, and I wont buy it agian. This foundation also tends to get oily in my t-zone. I've never had a foundation that makes my non-oily skin oily. And I also think the texture of this foundation is too thick, and it feels heavy on my skin.
I really love this blush! It gives a fresh and healthy look, and it stays put throughout the day :) It's definitely a must-have in my makeup routine, and I would recommend this to anyone.
This product is absolutely amazing! I use it along with my Olay rotating brush, and it works wonders. I always use my Earth Science astringent afterwards, and it leaves my skin throughout clean, and it also feels really fresh. The smell of this product is amazing, and the packaging is easy to use. I think this is an overall good product, and I would recommend this to anyone!

I really like this foundation as it covers my problem areas perfectly. The coverage is very buildable, and it blends easily into my skin. I've found that a brush is best for applying this foundation as it is very runny. The packaging is disasterous though and it's really hard to decide the amount you want as there's no pump to it. I would, regardless of the poor packaging give this foundation a go. The colour-range is also very good, especially for people with porcelain/fair skin.

This toner is my all time favourite. I use it after i've cleansed my skin with my Earth Science cleanser with hyaluronic acid. Along with the cleanser I use the Olay rotating brush. I also use my Clinique moisturizer after cleansing and toning, and the combination of these products makes my skin amazing! I would recommend this to anyone with oily/combination skin.

My main problem is the whiteheads that appear on my chin, right under the sides of my mouth. I have normal skin with an slightly oily t-zone. I'm wearing a small amount of makeup everyday to maintain a flawless face. Every evening before bed I use the Olay brush along with my Earth Science cleanser and toner. The combination of these three really makes my skin feel rejuvenated and fresh. I also apply my moisturizer (Clinique dramatically different lotion) after I've cleansed my face. When I wake up in the morning my face looks stunning!
Powder -L'Oreal - Bare Naturale Powdered Mineral Foundation

This foundation is perfect for my skin. As my skin is very pale, I find it hard to find the right shade of foundation but the color selection for this foundation is good, and it has many different pale shades. The coverage is buildable, from medium to full, and it takes alot to make it look "cakey". It gives the perfect matte finish! It blends into my skin like satin, and for me, it stays throughout the day, without any touchups needed. My skin is not oily at all, and I have very little acne. But I suffer from a bit redness, and this does the job covering it all! About the packaging. You get a good amount of foundation for the money, but it tends to get stuck under the lid. Overall the packaging is poor. Also, I would recommend buying a seperate brush, as the one you get with it might hurt your skin, since it's a bit "stingy". This foundation is definitely worth a try, and it's also very cheap, so I would say it's worth it! I hope you get as happy with this as I do, and I hope it does the same wonders for your skin as it does to mine :)
This foundation has a very limited choices of shades. As my skin is very pale, this foundation doesn't go with my skin tone at all - not even the lightest shade! After applying, the skin seems a bit "shiny", which I don't like at all. The L'Oreal Bare Naturale, which is the same line, has a broader selection of shades, and it also has a more matte finish. So, if you prefer the matte medium-full coverage look, I would choose the Bare Naturale version of this foundation :) However, if you're blessed to have a darker skin color this might be the foundation for you!

If you suffer from this, but like the foundation you could go for the L'Oreal Bare Naturale mineral foundation, which is without bismuth.
