I am 98% sure that this, (in combination with Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin) causes MAJOR chaos with my skin. My skin is sensitive, dry, somewhat acne/clogged pore prone, with cheek redness. When I use this/these Cetaphil product/s, I get tons of flesh-colored bumps all over, mostly on my forehead. They are not super noticeable, but they are very weird for me, and they do not pop...they also do not pop, and do not go away on their own. I also get ance from using this/these products, and the dryness on the sides of my nose gets worse. The pores on my nose also get noticeable dark, larger, and clogged when I use Cetaphil, which I have never experienced before. I have not tried this cream anywhere but my face, since that is what I purchased it for. I started using CeraVe Moisturizing Cleanser, and the CeraVe Cream in a tub (just like Cetaphils) and have had NO problems, and has helped solve the problems I had w/ Cetaphil. I kept the Cetaphil products since I wasn't sure if they were the culprit of my problems, and used them three nights in a row this week because they were in my downstairs bathroom and I was too lazy to go upstairs to wash my face those nights. Sure enough, I now have about 5 zits (mostly on hairline), which is very rare since I usually only get about 1 zit a month when using products that work for me. My pores have also gotten dark again, and, oh look, milia-type bumps on my forehead again. Needless to say I will not use these products any longer, no matter what the circumstance. All of the great reviews truly surprise me, but I guess everyone's skin is different...
I really love this foundation. I have acne/clogged pore prone skin that is very sensitive. It also tends to be dry, and my cheeks have redness on most days, if not, definitely a pink undertone. This foundation makes my skin look glowy, but not even a bit shimmery or oily looking. It has what I would consider medium coverage, but you could easily make it full by using a bit more. It covers any and all spots I have, and evens me out, especially my cheeks. It does not make the flakiness I sometimes get on the sides of my nose too much more prominent than it is by itself. It also stays put. I use the color 3.5 (#s ending in .5 are for more pink-toned skin)...I definitely thought I'd be matched with a lower #, but the color is perfect. I am pretty pale, with pink undertones as I said, but I hate when foundations add to my pinkness and this does not AT ALL. It simply evens out the redness in my cheeks. It also adds nice color to my face, but yet matches the rest of my (pale) body...hard to explain. I was also very happy that this product has not made me break out in any way...almost all foundations do. I was previously using a Tarte Amazonian Clay BB/tinted moisturizer that was intended to be great for my sensitive skin, but (I think) it increased my ance prone-ness a bit. I've also come to find out the Tarte one did not have enough coverage for me, although I never thought I wanted more coverage. Overall, I am really liking Naked Skin and no longer feel the need to seek out a different foundation, which is rare for me with any product.
Concealers -Maybelline - Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer in Ivory

I use this concealer in ivory. I am pale with pink undertones, and have yet to try a different color because this one works great for an under eye concealer/highlighter. It does not get cakey or settle into lines, and it stays put. It is by far the best under-eye concealer I have tried, and I currently own one by MUFE, a MAC one, and a Clinique one, although I have tried others. My biggest complaint is that I am almost through my first one, and I have only had it a little over a month give or take. But, I do use it a lot and use a good amount of it. Because of this, I have even stocked up on these, mainly because I find Ivory is sold out somewhat frequently. For once I have found a product that I am not determined to find a better one; I am very happy with this concealer...and that truly surprised me because I really do stay away from drug store beauty products.
