In the store I tried the colours out on my hand and they looked great. It looked nice and moisturizing and had lots of shine. As soon as I got home and put it on my lips, I had to take it off right away. The taste was horrible. I’ve never had a lip balm taste so bad. I wiped it off and returned it the next day. Too bad because the colors were what I was looking for but I couldn’t stand to wear it because of the taste. I even had to brush my teeth after to get rid of it.

This has been my HG of eye shadow for the past 15 years! It gives the perfect shimmer and really brightens my eyes. I use it every day either alone or under other shadows. It is a perfect base for all other colours. It stays on all day for me too. I can never be without this shadow and for the price, it is so worth it.
I finally found my HG foundation. Since I had my son, my skin has gone crazy. I use to use the Mac Studio Fix foundation powder and just loved the coverage and the way it looked. However, after I had my son and found out I had a low thyroid problem my skin turned into a nightmare. It is red and blotchy, extremely dry and my skin texture is bumpy. It is also extremely sensitive. My Mac looks terrible on me now. In fact, any powder foundation looks terrible because of my dry skin and my newly formed fine lines. So then I had to go on my hunt for a liquid foundation. I tried soooo many high end and low end, including: Clarins (was my favourite higher end but still not worth the money), Tarte, Urban Decay, Dior, Lancome, Stila, MUFE, Smash Box, Revlon Colourstay, etc. I have very pale skin with a pink undertone. Most of those other foundations didn't match my skin at all, they were too dark or would look ok at first then turn orange a few hours later. Almost all of them would make my skin feel tight and dry right away too. I finally found this foundation on a here, I read all the reviews and ran out and bought it. I am so happy I did! This is the best my skin as looked in months and months. It provides the perfect medium coverage for me and makes my skin look flawless. The best things are that it matches my skin perfect, doesn't dry my skin out and looks really natural. I think I look like a porcelain doll. I apply it with my Urban Decay foundation brush then lightly use my Pur Minerals 4 in 1 foundation powder over it to set it. It last all day and looks great. I'm so happy I found this foundation and that is so reasonably priced.

I bought this product from the advise on the SA at Shoppers Drug Mart. I use to use MAC Studio Fix powder compact and really loved it. However, after I had my son, my skin went crazy and Mac looked terrible on my face. My skin has gone extremely dry, rough looking and very sensitive and red. I think I might be getting rosacea. I tried many foundations including bare minerals, which I didn't like very much. So when the SA recommended it to me I was unsure. I bought it anyways because I could return it if I didn't like it. I was very pleasantly surprised. It went on easy and really made my skin look great. I used it along with the blush that came in the kit and my skin looked the best it has in a long time. I don't think it particularly last a long time but it's easy to reapply in the evening. I love how you can make it shear or full coverage depending on what you feel like that day. This is by far way better than bare minerals. Powder has been looking awful on me but this doesn't at all.
I have been on a major hunt for a good foundation. After I had my son, my skin went crazy. I use to use the Mac Studio Fix powder and just loved how it covered so well and stayed matte. But now my skin is extremely dry and when I try my old Mac, it looks terrible on my skin. So I have been trying so many different liquid foundations, Dior, Urban Decay, Stila, YVSL, MUFE, Lancome, Almay, Revlon, Tarte and so many more. I found that I wasn't happy with any of them for one reason or another. I was looking for a matte finish and a medium coverage to full coverage. I also have extremely sensitive skin and I think I'm starting to get Rosacea. When I tried this stuff, I instantly loved how it looked on my skin. I was worried that throughout the day it might not look as good but I was very impressed. This stuff looks just as good in the afternoon as in the morning. Also, I don't even need to use a powder, the finish is so nice. I will definitely repurchase this product.
