I really loves this compact powder and the tones of it. I am using 023 and it really matches well with my asian skin tone! I love the good coverage and it makes the skin look natural but more beautiful. But after using it for 2 years I have the feeling that this make up dehydrates my skin a little bit.

This make up has a good coverage, but a light feeling on the skin, I didn't have the feeling of wearing makeup and it is easily to blend although it has a creamy consistence, which I really liked. It lasting power is okay, but there are better ones! After the application I have to aplly powder over it because it makes my skin having a very shiny glow, which i don't like. What I don't like is that the shades of this foundation doesn't really matches my asian skin tone perfectly. I'm using intensity 2.0 and I can only wear it in summertime or mixed with another lighter foundation. If there are more tones of this foundation, which matches better with my skintone, I would definitly buy this product again!
Mascara -Kiss Me - HEROINE MAKE long and curl mascara (black)

It's one of my favorite mascaras after I tried a lot of mascaras from maybelline, loreal, chanel, dior, lancome, clarins, clinique, guerlains, helena rubinstein....and so on. For my asian lashes, which are fine, with no natural curl,normal long and very stubborn ;) this mascara is really good!! But I have to say, that for the first application this mascara is too heavy/ hard for my asian lashes. It makes them just going down after I curled them. But after using inimtable by chanel and divinora by guerlain (which is not availible anymore and very bad for me, but I luckily buyed a lot of them before they were taken out) the kiss me mascara just gives them the wow effect. it gives them more drama, the color is deep black and they highlight my lashes perfectly. It does not clump my lashes together and it makes them longer AND thicker. I think the last effect dominates more although the mascara called "long and curl". And it fix the applications before really good so that the curl oh the lashes stay all day and all night!
Crème -Bobbi Brown - Oil-Free Even Finish Compact Foundation

For me the coverage was good, but after a while of using, I recognized the using of this make up with the sponge is unhygienic. By the time fuzzes and other particles on your hands or on your skin are getting through the sponge on the creamy make up and stay on it. And I had the feeling that the cream didn't connect with my skin, I had to dab the sponge to get it on my skin that it looks naturaly
Being an Asian in Europe, it's hard for me to find a foundation tone which matches my skin tone perfectly. So I decided to buy a foundation by Bobbi Brown with an wide range of tones. For me, this foundation is too liquid, it has very bad couverage, but the tone 2.5 warm sand matches very well with my skin tone. But also the staying power dissapointed me. I think it matches to normal oder dry skins better, and to skins which are already very good and actually don't need make up but just to make them look a little bit better. So for this price, I would not buy this product again.
