This prevents creasing which for me is only an issue when I wear creme products on my lids, it also makes my shadows pop, so it basically does what a good primer should! It also stops my nyx jumbo eye pencil from smudging all over the place and creasing, which was a real problem for me!
I LOVE THIS! I find it best applied with a regular foundation brush and it provides medium but buildable coverage and looks so so natural! It smells so lovely and is such a bargain. I will repurchase forever and ever. for reference, I am a mac nc25 and the lightest shade 51 vanilla is perfect (i bought shade 52 and it was a tad too orange, but I just fix that with powder).
I got a sample of this and tried to like it but the smell is SO horrible. It smells like spoiled latex, just gross. It's coverage is medium and it is very thick to apply, I definitely won't be buying this product.
Liquid -The Body Shop - Moisture Foundation SPF 15

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. This formula is so so horrible, it looks so cakey and settles into fine lines and cracks and creases around smile lines. It smells like sunscreen and is just the worst product i have put on my face. You can get a much better foundation for half the price, such as the bourjois healthy mix foundation. I regret buying this.
I bought this pencil to line my waterline but the staying power is pretty bad. I do, though, use this under my concealer to give extra coverup for my under-eye bags and it works alright. The consistency is semi-creamy, but not as creamy as I would like. I think I could find a cheaper alternative that does the same job.
This product is NOT for dry skinned people. I can not use this in winter as it dries me out horribly and patches around dry skin. I think this product may be useful for me in summer when I require sun protection and am a bit oily. I have found a good use for this BB cream, though. This is my go-to foundation for when I am performing as a dancer as while I would usually sweat my face off, this keeps my face perfect every time. I just put a little powder in my t-zone for extra sweat-insurance and I'm good to go.

this is not my HG concealer but for its price it works extremely well. It covers my dark circles quite well, but not amazingly. I bought it in creamy beige and it is yellow based which suits me, but it may be a bit too yellow, though perhaps I need a lighter shade. You MUST blend this in well and use it sparingly. PROS: - conceals well - a lot in the tube - good range of colours - affordable CONS: - sometimes settles into my under-eye lines - is a bit thick and noticeable - packaging looks and feels cheap I will continue to use this concealer, but my hunt for my HG concealer continues. My dark circles are very bad, though, so I think I need something that is light reflecting as well as concealing.
