ok love this foundation, yes it is thick, harder to apply but its full coverage and lasts forever, makes my dry skin look flawless, i find the best way to apply this foundation is with my clean fingers, and work in small areas, i have tried every brush and sponge there is but my fingers do the trick. it is amazing stuff, the key is to work in small areas and work quickly. Only downfall for me was there is limited amount of colours, the lightest is to pink for my skin tone, and the next one up is slightly too dark, i just use a lighter powder to compensate. It is a little pricey for a 30ml tube sending me back $65 aus dollars, but i use it for special occasions and going out, i truely love this foundation and will always re buy it,i hope they do expand there colour range tho. adorable packaging.
This is an ok non abrasive exfoiliant. A friend gave it to me as it wasnt working for her, My skin does feel softer after i use it and really does unclog my pores. It is good but not great, I have very dry skin and i feel i do need something with a grain in it to really polish my skin, i would not buy this again purely for the price.
This foundation was a hude disapointment, i have dry to combo skin and this foundation is horrible, no matter how i applied it, how much or little i used, it looked dry, cakey and transfered like crazy, i tried applying it with several different brushed, sponges or my fingers and it just wasnt working for me, the coverage wasnt that fantastic either, if u have quite dry flakey prone skin i would not recomend this product, im yet to come across a mac foundation i like, this product also made me break out like crazy!! The only thing i liked about this product was the packaging, i would defently not re purchase this product again.
I love this product. I have very dry eczema prone skin with a slightly oily t-zone in summer. This oil cleanser removes all makup, and i wear alot as im in the beauty industry. I love the fact you apply it to dry skin and massage it in, my makeup melts of my face including heavy eyeshadow eyeliner and mascara, it is very gentle and leaves my skin feel clean and soft withough stripping it of natural oils, I love that it is fairly natural as i have sensetive skin and have tried a few cleansing oils before which contained lanolin which i am alergic too. I paid AU $70 for 100ml, it is a little pricey but i will continue to re purchase this product unless i come along something better.
