Doesn't live up to its claim as being long lasting... After 2/3 hours of apply looked Cakey and emphasised the lines under my eyes. Hate the fact you cannot alter the amount of product the you want, as the pump seems to release a lot of product no matter how much or less you press on the pump.
I have not purchased this foundation, but have tried my cousins foundation in nc40 . The finish is wonderful. However the biggest problem was how quick and how dark it oxidised. It went from being a perfect yellow shade to a orangey shade. And on top of that the smell was rather off putting
Formula is nice and lightweight as well as a dewy finish great for summer. Unfortunately the shades for this foundation were just not yellow enough. I found after 10 mins of wearing this it oxidised to a pinky peachy colour
Love this lipstick. Not as drying as the nude attitude lipstick formula. It's much moisturising than that one. Not chalky on me and has the perfect matteness to it... Comes off more like a purpley pink than a pink pink.. But non the less the colour does gel well with my nc40 skin tone.. I wouldn't say it's long lasting on me particulary. It usually wears off after 1 or 2 hours.
this was my first ever mac lipstick, and because of this, im really sceptical and hesistant to buy other mac lipsticks. the formula is toooooooooooo creamy that it kind of just slides everywhere on the lips, doesnt really stay put. the colour was okayish. i was looking for a peachy nude, however after trying it on, unfortunately it just didnt suit my nc40 skin tone. probably suit lighter skin tones better. there was also a slight smell to this product, which smelt rather strange.
Love this mascara hands down. makes my eyelashes look super long and increases their thickness making them more visible. love all bourjois mascara, but this is the one i rate more highly. the price is actually quite reasonable.not as cheap as previous mascaras i have purchased from rimmel, but nonetheless a great investment. definately repurchasiing this beauty!!

the product is actually quite good. it blends in well with the skin, and is easy to apply with brush or even the hands. the only downside to this foundation and many other estee lauder foundation, is the colours that are avaliable. the product just didnt have the right amount of yellowyness that was suited to my skin. furthermore i find that this product oxidises half an hour or so after applying it,to a slightly darker colour.. the packaging was okayish. not really that appealing, sort of grannyish old fashioned., but this could be because it probably more aimed at more maturer women. due to it expensive price i would be purchasing this one again
the only great thing about this product is probably the colour payoff. i have black eyelashes anyways, but what i like about this mascara is that it can make my eyelashes look even more black. disappointingly thats just about the only think i liked about this mascara as well as the sleek packaging. really wished loreal had'nt discontinued the volume shocking mascara. it was much better than this

great to begin with. as a person who suffers from mild eczema on the eyelids, this roll on was great at not emphasising the dryness and wrinkles.. however the product is not long lasting at all. i found within 2/3 hours it was not the same...really disappointed with it. especially as it was quite expensive for a high street product in my view :(
foundation was okay. not as good as i expected it to be . the foundation made my skin look cakey. the matteness of the foundation was tooooo drying. but it is a durable product and will stay in place for a long time. however the biggest downside of this products is the shades available. as an asian with extreme yellow undertone, the foundation(which the make up artist said was the yellowist) was still rather quite pinky on me .. foundation is best suited to lighter pink based skin type

absolutely hated this mascara!!! with the amount of advertising done for this product i couldnt help but buy it .. i must say it is the worst so far. does not do anbything for my eyelashes. and for that reason shouldnt even be worth the amount i paid for it. my eyelashes had not volume no lenghth. mascara was completely and utterly useless. thank god i have found borjouis volume clubbing mascara the best mascara i have ever purchased and 1000% better than maybelline
