Excellent colour match. Perfect texture. I use a small amount and use a sponge to spread and set it, then a light dusting of powder over it. Gives a flawless result. Useless metal dispenser. But I will buy this again and again.
This is my HG concealer. I'm using S204. It does not crease (with powder applied on top) and it stays put! I have terrible dark circles under my eyes, and I used a combination of Master Corrector by Giorgio Armani and Touche Eclat by YSL. The colour and texture of this concealer is perfect so I only use this now. The clicking mechanism is not great. Alot of clicks to get the product out, But worth it. Definitely worth it. I put a little under my eye and then dab with my fingers. One tube lasts about 2 months.

Thanks to MUA or I'd never had known such a great product exists! I've been using Boots nylon gloves for years, and this just takes the biscuit! I love it! I feel so refreshed after each shower. I highly recommend it.

Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Live Native - Essential Woman with Frangipani

Live Native is a brand from the Isle of Skye. My God, I love their products. I was not looking for organic skincare, I just happened upon them by chance and I thank the very day that I did. Essential Woman with Frangipani is my favourite moisturiser of all time. It just melts into your skin, and skin looks healthy, glowing and smooth. Partly from the essential oils within it, and partly from the great combination of base ingredients. I can't live without it. I can only get it online, it's not sold in any shops. When I have gone to other moisturisers to take a break from this, I crave it so much. In hot weather, the moisturiser becomes liquid and you only need one drop for the whole face. I'm sure not everyone will feel the same. But it's well worth trying. And if you're into organic hand-made "skin food", then this brand is fabulous!
A great moisturising eye cream, but no other great effects. It did not lift the eye area, get rid of dark circles, improve tone or clarity or any of the other silly things they told me at the counter. The little applicator is cool and nice to apply the cream with but the coating gradually breaks down. I won't buy this again only because there are better eye creams / gels out there.
Lovely texture and great moisturising results.
Initially, I thought there was good improvement of my eye area overall. But when I ran out of the product, within 2 days my eye area looked like it did before I ever bought the product. Surely, that's not supposed to happen. Surely as a treatment eye cream, one is supposed to see some level of sustainable improvement? I bought it for a second time, and I truly do not see the results I initially had when I first used the product. I'm all for epidermal growth factors, but I won't be buying this again. There are far better eye creams / gels out there.
My face is smooth and line free the following day. I only use it 2 - 3 times a week. I like massaging it in before I sleep.

I use this on occasion when I'm taking a break from my usual moisturisers. It is quite a good moisturiser especially for very dry skin or during the winter season. Smells terrible. Good over a facial oil.

No evidence of any benefit at all unfortunately. I also did not like the texture and heaviness. Not for me.
I've tried several types of muslin cloth and this is the best. Very effective.
Primer/ Corrector -Yves Saint Laurent - Top Secrets Flash Radiance

GREAT primer. Better than Smashbox, Modelco and others I've tried. Don't overload the brush and don't use loads or you may get spots. You can smooth it out with your fingers if you want. But makeup stays on brilliantly and it really does give a beautiful radiance to the face. There's menthol in it so you shouldn't use too much under the eyes or it can be drying I think. I love it!

An amazing product! I was given a sample to try and the counter girl claimed it would get rid of "100% of toxins". I've had one tiny pimple appear then disappear. But my skin texture has become smoother, my face is brighter and dare I say, it looks younger! More luminous overall. How does it work? I've bought the full sized bottle.
Primer/ Corrector -Giorgio Armani - Master Corrector

I absolutely cannot live without this product. Even when I don't want to use makeup, I only just pat a little of this under my eyes and voila!....I look so much better. I have the worst dark circles under my eyes and I used dermablend for years. Dermablend is too cakey and drying. I had to take the plunge and try something different and I have never looked back since I tried Master Corrector in No. 2!
