I'm trying to find a replacement foundation for Estée Lauder's Double Wear liquid foundation since they both took away my shade and changed the formula so I bought this. I'm happy with the formula and coverage (medium to full). It's easy to apply and to build up and I like the wide range of shades they offer. Sadly, it doesn't last as long as the Estée one, not nearly. I have to reapply in the afternoon if I want it to look as good as it did in the morning (in the t-zone). I'm not sure if I will repurchase, I guess my search for the perfect foundation continues.
This is a great everyday mascara that helps curling your lashes, separate them and give you a fresh, feathery look. With a curling tool and this you get really nice, wide-open eyes that lasts all day. I bought in on Beautybay since we don't have Urban Decay in-store in Sweden and I am very happy with my purchase.

I wrrote a positive review about this before but I have totally changed my mind.This mascara is not good. After just a few weeks it dries out causing the mascara to fall off my lashes. It doesn't do anything for curling either, I have long lashes naturally but need to curl them otherwise they just stand straight out. This mascara sucks.

It's pricey but it's a good complement to my Double wear foundation. When I have blemishes or acne it covers them well and has a nice quite thick texture.

This is a really good primer for all day use, it doesn't feel like it's clogging pores. It smoothens out the skin and covers blotches and redness. I use it under my foundation and my skin stays matte almost all day long. Luckily it lasts a long time since it's very expensive.
This mascara separates the lashes and lenghtens them well, but one layer is not enough for volume. It also tends to smudge a little during the day under my eyes. On the other hand it's really hard to get off, even with waterproof eye removal. Weird. I like it average but will not buy again.
I used this once, and it completly ruined my skin. It has been 2 days since I used it and my face is till red-ish and has changed its texture somehow. I normally have smooth skin but it feels very uneven and dry and weird, an it itches a bit. I haven't used any other product for the first time since this happened, only the skin prep scrub so it has to be the product that did this. Hope it goes away and my skin goes back to normal again, soon... yikes
This is not for oily/combination skin. It looks good at first but it melts off my face in about 3 hours. The lightest shade is a little too dark for my fair skin. It has medium coverage I will not buy this again.
This is really nice everyday blush in a cute shimmering peach colour. Lasts all day and is well pigmented. I live in Sweden and I ordered it from their webpage. Very very cheap too! I will definitely buy more.
I have very oily skin but after applying this in the t-zone it leaves my face matte almost all day long with a silky finish. I have never used a better finsihing powder. Be careful to not apply too much though, it is prone to give you the look of dipping your face in flour if you use to much, and I also don't think this is for a person with dry skin. The packaging is not very good because the jar is so small (in height) so if you bring it with you and it goes upside down and shaky in your bag, when you open it the powder is everywhere. So i keep it lid up at home. I use it after Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation.
Hallelujah! This mask is extraordinary. It left the skin on my face so silky smooth and clean. Apply a generous amount, wait 5-10 minutes and then scrub it off with a little water. It has a cooling, nice effect thanks to the mint. Applying makeup after this is really fun because you see a difference in the finishing result, my foundation goes on more evenly. This product is vegan and organic, feels good to use an all-natural mask once in a while!
This is a really effective scrub. Using it on my body it leaves a REALLY smooth finish, it really works well as an exfoliater. Tried on my boyfriend and he liked it too :) But be careful using it on your face though, I (over)used like 4 days in a row (1 or 2 times a day) because I was flaking on my chin, and the result was I became really really dry and it still hasn't gone away, all the moisturizer in the world won't help it. So now I've stopped using it on my face to let the skin heal.

I couldn't believe the result after using this brush! It was totally eyeopening for me, how important it is to use a really good brush when you apply your makeup! I use this for liquid foundation and it gives a flawless, non-striped finish. LOVE it. Extra cred to Everyday Minerals for not animal testing and not using animal hair! Thank u!
This is a very natural looking mascara for everyday use. I like my lashes very long and full which this product not really give me, it gives your lashes a more subtle look. But it has very high quality in terms of staying on without smudging and without clumping (even after the gym!). One weird thing though is people say it's so easy to wash off – I really don't agree! When I wash my face with just warm water the mascara kind of goes away from the lashes but sticks like glue under my eyes instead! Not nice. So I don't understand why everyone says it's easy to get rid of.
I have very oily skin, especially in the t-zone, and all foundations I have tried in the past melted off my face after a few hours. But when I read so many great reviews of this I finally decided to buy it, I have been looking for a long time for a foundation that matches my oily shiny skin. The price is a little too expensive, but you get what you pay for obviously. I got a sample when I bought it so I could try it before deciding to keep it. And I was blown away! Never have my face looked so flawless. All my big pores, acne scars, dark circles and blotches disappeared and my face stayed matte all day long. I am very happy with this. The coverage is high so I don't have to worry about how I look during the day. I know it looks great all day and I'm very satisfied. Apply this fairly quickly or it will dry, using a brush or fingers, I use a brush. Don't use it if you have very dry skin. Moisturize your face well before applying. I also apply a blothing powder from Swedish brand Make Up Store in the t-zone after the foundation.
