I bought this foundation today as I was sick of my maybelline superstay, it just wasn't doing what it used to do for me. and would get really pink after half an hour. after reading reviews, i decided to buy this in 100 ivory (because im just, white). 90% of the time, foundations i buy will not be good on my skin. buuuuut this stuff is so good. I usually tone my face, moisturise, then put primer on, then yellow eye concealer. i also have seborrheic dermatitis (like, skin flaking) on my nose, which every foundation makes it stand out. although i just started re-using my cream for it, this foundation made my nose look perfect. Rimmel has always been a really good brand, I think i need to buy more of their products. This foundation literally looks like skin on my face which is amazing. People say revlon colorstay is better ? Colorstay is the worst foundation I have ever used. Lasting finish is soooo much better. I would say it's medium - full coverage, it covered pretty well with about 1-2 layers. It blends really well. firstly tried with a stippling brush, didn't work well with that, switched to a foundation brush and its like, perfect. The top of mine doesn't get messy (tube version). I also shake it before i use it because the main ingredient is water so yeah. Overall i'm really happy with this foundation, i put it on about 5 hours ago probably, and it still looks the same. I'll be taking it off soon though. Going to a party tomorrow, I'll test it for that, for about 12 hours and update this review to see how well it lasts. Also i get an oily t-zone and it doesnt feel oily. Great foundation, was only about $18 (Australia) which is fairly cheap.

A lot of negative reviews ? i bought this today, have had it on my lids for about 5 hours ? no transfer at all, has stayed on perfectly. it is very black. the brush tip can be a little hard to use but its still so thin and i'm just fussy haha. when i first bought the eyeliner today, it was upright in the package with the brush at the top, so when i tested it, it came out watery with black flecks and i thought "i just wasted $14 on this shit" buuuuuuut, all i had to do was shake it well for a minute or two and it started to work well. i tried to get it off with water, didn't do much at all. i have a couple black dots on my hand for when i tested it, water hasn't made it budge. soap and water will help by scratching it off basically. haha. and it hasn't smudged, basically because it dries incredibly fast. pros: doesn't flake waterproof very black precise, like it says thin tip no smudging fast drying no transfer no smell easy pen shape cons: brush can be a little too flexible but i don't mind it black pigment and liquid were separated when i bought it, no surprise though, being in one position for ages (it was the last one) i would repurchase this again sure, but i like to try everything. :)

amazing moisturiser! i have seborrheic dermatitis on my nose, my prescription cream works some times but this moisturiser makes my nose feel so much better and really hydrates it! dry skin is a nightmare when wearing make up but this moisturiser seems to make my skin so smooth and forms like a barrier between my skin and the make up. so many moisturisers don't hydrate for long enough or make you feel greasy or take forever to sink into the skin. this moisturiser, is by far the best i've tried. works well on dry knees and elbows as well ! on the driest parts of my face, i usually apply a second layer. when i put it on my nose, it usually flattens the skin so when i put make up over top, it doesn't flake at all. i totally recommend this product.
