Okay, I have one of the most sensitive skin out which is prone to breakouts to so many products. I didn't think that benefit was going to break me out and so I went ahead and used it contour my face. After using a makeup remover at the end of the day over a period of 2 days, there are bumps all over the places I used to apply the bronzer. I mean, I love the look of it when on, it looks natural, matte and just gorgeous. BUT that was until it broke me out. More than MAC foundations which is such a bummer. I'm sitting here, watching t.v after severely exfoliating my skin. So, for those with not as much of a sensitive skin as I have, I say go for it! you'll love it and the brush is cute too. BUT if you have sensitive skin like I do, stay far far away from it.
Eye Shadow -Coastal Scents - 88 colors warm palette

How much I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product! This palette from coastal scents and this palette only. The colors are highly pigmented and the range of colors is absolutely amazing. There are some matte neutral colors and I don't usually wear shimmer, but I love one of the shimmer gold shadows in it, also it was easy to blend to create a natural looking, soft, or even smoky eye. Long wearing and very impressed. Although the packaging wasn't a blast. I had a few drop out but not to worry, simply apply glue to it.
Loose Powders -MAC - Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder

Okay so I have mixed feelings about this product. I purchased the press powder and must I say, I love the packaging, it has a cute little mirror too. After applying this on my foundation, I set extremely well and left my face feeling amazing and looking flawless. It's so gentle on my skin and it great to wear during the day. Though even with little application of it, it wasn't the best for flash photography as it did indeed leave a white cast on my face which look, as you can tell, pareeety scary. So again it was great on skin, felt great, looked good during the day but when it came to taking photos at night, well that was a different story. Going to try Laura Mercier's or going to try MAC careblend at night.
I've always had trouble with lip products because they tend to cause an allergic reaction to my lips and they would always go dry and flaky and eugh not good. Even MAC lip glosses didn't really do it for me, I was allergic to that too. However with this product I was really impressed, it was very long wearing, wasn't too sticky as opposed to MAC and guess what? Not too much of an allergic reaction so woohoo! I love the colors, they look natural and glam. Going to remain a loyal customer to laura mercier!
Not good. Not even close! It smudges like no tomorrow which was horrible. If you ever plan to apply this to your waterline... don't do it! If you're thinking of applying it to your lash line... don't do that too! It glides on well and the colour is very rich which was great. But unless you want to have raccoon looking eyes, avoid this product at all cost.
Other -Unlisted Brand - Phisohex Antibacterial Skin Wash

I love this product! I've used higher end products like clinique and shiseido but they were nothing compared to this! I found that my face tends to break out with higher ended products but with phisoex my skin is improving for not just pimples but heat bumps too. I also used this for my back, as the packaging says, use 3 times daily. I used this once a day, in the shower for a period of 2 weeks+ and already I noticed that my back acne was improving dramatically.

Absolutely horrible! What was worse was that, first time use I wasn't aware of how badly it flaked until towards the end of the day. So at night I noticed all these black dots on my face all because it dried up and flaked. The color is great, highly pigmented but really, not going there again!
Eyeliner -MAC - Penultimate Eye Liner - Rapidblack

Really disappointed with this product. After my first few uses of it, I fell in love with it for how highly pigmented it is and how the application glided on so smoothly and effortlessly. However after a few weeks of using it, I noticed that the tip started drying out and the edges were fine. Not impressed anymore.
I have very sensitive skin but I don't have acne. However I received the night cream as a gift with the day cream. At first use I thought it was amazing because my face felt so refreshed and clean. However after time I realised that my skin has been extremely dry! Also I have all these little bumps on my forehead which is horrible! The day cream is alright, I kind of like the day cream. It's light and my skin doesn't flake during the day. But, my forehead has heaps of little bumps! If you have sensitive skin, DON'T use this.
