Liquid -Vichy - Aera Teint Pure Fluid Foundation Finish Up to 12 Hour Wear

It broke me out horribly on the first time I tested it on my face. FYI my skin is not even acne prone or sensitive. So far nothing has broken me out this badly. There must be something in the ingredients that is very harsh. Although this foundation is wonderful (great satin finish, relatively long-lasting - I would say about 7 hrs) I can't tolerate any more breakouts and will have to ditch it.
This is a very nice shimmering orangey coral lipstick. I got it on a sale on the Boxing Day so no complaint. The texture is creamy and very easy to put on (with this colour I don't even need a mirror). Packaging is awesome. It's my first time experiencing a Shu lipstick, will def buy again.
An amazing product! Lioele actually came up with this creative design of the 2-in-1 gel eyeliner pot & brush before Loreal or any other Western companies, which is fantastic! I just totally love the cute and handy packaging. Product per se I can use it on my brows (oh looking good), on my eyes as eyeliners and even eyeshadow when I run out of ideas. It is very long lasting and easy to remove. Dream product!
This foundation can control oil on my Tzone for 4-5 hours, which I really appreciate. It blends well and not a doubt the finish is amazing! The cucumber smell is also a breakthrough - I haven't seen any foundation that smells that lovely!
Totally worth my money. Since buying this highlighter a year ago I've actually been quite happy and not once had the urge to try any other brands. You can't really go wrong with this product. The only thing I don't like about this product is the brush end. It seems quite unhygienic as you can't take it out and wash it, so I would rather recommend using another brush.

A very lovely product at a reasonable price. It does its job well, leaving my hands very soft and smooth. If I tested this product blind I would have thought this was a high end product.

The colour and finish are decent however it oxidises pretty quickly (like in 2-3 hours) so watch out!
It's a very pretty product however every time I apply it I feel like it's sucking all the moisture out of my lips and my cheeks. After about half an hour my lips start to crack and my cheeks feel tight and irritated. If only it contained a bit less alchohol!

The colour only looks OK on the box but AMAZING when I put it on my eyes. It's my favourite day time eyeshadow now. It normally lasts 5-6 hours on its own; if you want it to last longer you'll need a primer.

I have no doubt on how well it works the foundation onto my skin and gives an airbrush look. However the hair itself is quite hard and stiff, and sometimes it scratches my face. Haven't got this problem with the buffing brush though.
Not sure if it actually shrinks any of the pores but my acnes definitely disappear faster. My skin also feels smoother, brighter and much cleaner!
Bloody hell I wish I could refund this product. It stings, it smells, it doesn't do any good. Don't buy it. A total waste of money!
Liquid -Estee Lauder - Double Wear LIGHT Foundation SPF10

I really want to love this foundation with all my heart but I just...can't. First, the colour recommended to me was no.2 which ends up incredibly yellow on me. It actually oxidises quite a bit so during the day it even makes me look more tanned! Second, it's broken me out horribly, although I always do double cleansing. I seriously have to avoid using it two days in a row. Third, the SPF is too low. Having said that I very much appreciate its long lasting power and semi matte finish. So I decided to keep it and mix it with a pinker toned and higher SPF BB cream. That stone kills three birds.
This product has an amazing lasting power! It stays on my eye all day even without a primer. The colour is very easy to wear too. The only reason why I don't give it the fifth star is because it slightly broke me out. I can't use it everyday.
This is the best lip balm I've ever used. So far nothing beats even half of it. The smell is amazing. I use it as a normal lip balm and also as a lip exfoliator (using the little bits). This is a must-try and must-buy!
