I've been looking for affordable stippling brush then I picked this one. it used to worked perfectly fine as my bb brush. it gave me very natural coverage and didn't make my combi skin looked patchy. however after washing my brush frequently, the black color from the brush faded together with the excess water. even when it's dry, the black dye sometimes mixed with my bb cream and painted my face gray. I don't think I can use this anymore.

I finished my first 3 steps set within 2 months, also purchased concealer for acne and spot gel, hoping that they won;t make me breakout when I have to cover my blemishes. I believe I spent roughly $135. Shipping etc made them terribly expensive. I used to have light-moderate acne until one time I broke out and decided to pick these prods. In short, for me the prods just don't work. The worst part is the lotion, it was seriously harsh. I kept finishing them due to price paid. The results of using them are; my face became oily than ever, both cheeks breakout so badly, and it left scar that has not disappeared until now. Adding the suck concealer, my anger towards the prods have been completed!
I am not hoping this product to be tinted.. it is more like tinted moisturizer with spf. the product's totally okay, it helps reducing my redness, easy to blend, and unscented. makes my oily skin a bit greasy sometimes, but in overall, like this!
I pick soft pink color. wonderful! dab it on your cheeks using clean fingers or brush, set with powder and thats it, its not as pigmented but i like it bcos it creates very natural rosy cheeks. i love how its not too thick, soft and long lasting! use dabbing motion and it should be fine.price is very okay, about $6 and it would last forever. the only problem is the packaging.. inefficient and unhygienic, the product rocks!

I bought this in Sasa Singapore, its S$19, pricey compared to others reviewers stated. the counter girl said it's more expensive cause eggplant is the limited edition. From the tube, the eggplant color seems very nice deep purple. When applying on lid.. i dont know how it turned to be reddish-brown close to maroon, with slight tint of purple. the wow about this products are glide easily on lid yet last all day on my very oily lid even without primer, and waterproof. I prefer to use my own angle brush, the color is not intense though, sometimes could be a bit flaky when applying

the smells is nice and non sticky. quite hydrating but not enough for dry skin. cons: made my skin a bit itchy anc uncomfy..
the smell is too strong and somehow remember me of powder. the cap stuck then the bottle cant be closed, i like the bottle color tough
like! smells very sweet yet fresh, very girl-ish. remind me of anything sweets, a bit too strong for my sensitive nose, but still okay.
so i received this as a gift, and did not have any expectation bout it. it smells.. abstract, strong and i just simply dislike.

this is very good prod as a highlighter if you have normal to dry skin, unfortunately i had oily skin and don't want to appear like disco ball so i wont repurchase.. this gives healthy radiant looking with least glitter almost unnoticeable. it comes in 2 shades pink for fairer skin and gold one for tanned. easy to apply, look very natural and u just need a tiny amount, quite long lasting.

its an okay performance, make my lashes look naturally thick and just a little bit clumpy sometimes. but i don't know why it always smudges and give me extra dark circles just like in 4 hours using.

this is quiet pricey got it for bout $26, it doesn;t break me out yet i'm not sure if it helps healing acne as it promised, the consistency is very very thick&dry fast. hard to blend but it makes the concealer longlasting, it could cover redness but not acne, made acne looked more like bumps. untight pores will appear more noticeable. I'm not sure to repurchase or not since i used clinique skin care and afraid to jump to try new prods due to very sensitive skin
this is just an okay product. cant tell what's so special bout it and no this is not really moisturizing enough for me
yes, this is nourishing, i prefer to use it on the night time cos its kinda feel sticky

so far this is the only concealer that doesn't dry out my undereye area. like! looked very natural, super easy to blend, non cakey at all cons cons: the sponge kinda unhygienic, suggest dont cover blemishes with it, might not work on heavy dark circle
