I love this Loreal foundation! its my first foundation from loreal because i was afraid of loreal foundation formulas that it might break me out. The foundation Has great coverage which i really need! this stuff is great you can layer it up but 1 layer works and does the job well!! i love this! The packagin for me is great! mine comes in a pump bottle because i live in asia but they also sell it in just the bottle top style. Highly recommend no oils! it does somehow leave me just a tiny bit oily through out the day but over all this stuff is great!!!
This mascara is a HIT! maybelline is usually a miss especially the hypercurl one. but this is fab! You will somehow see that the brush is a bit wet on your first try, ofcourse theres tons of products in there, so what you do is just to get rid of excess product, by wiping on tissude or just at the tips of the bottle :-) LOVE THIS! its not what I expected, like the tarte lights camera lashes mascara but still thisis nice!
THIS HD FOUNDATION IS THE BEST! for 3 years ive been using maybelline gel foundation and i wanted to try revlon photoready because of the coverage but it was so expensive so i bought this and it waaaaas soooo BEAUTIFUL! the shade i bought was a bit darker so what i do is to top it off with press powder and it is so lovely. HIGHLY recommended. i have oily skin, acne prone large pores, white heads, you name it! but this was the best full coverage for me. i still use my gel foundation from maybelline because its so light and natural but this nyx is just the thing! i hoped i helped. in te philippnes it just costs around 650 pesos compare to revlon of 900+++ pesos.
Hi dolls. I've own 2 shades of this cream blush and I love it! it is a bit too much when applied obviously it is a cream blush, but what i do is to use a STIPPLING BRUSH (highly recommended!) The stippling brush gives that airbrush effect to products applied to face. What I do is to dab 1 time only very lightly to the blush and tap it on my cheeks. Don't use any other stroke with this brush as it doesn't make sense anymore if you do strokes like a normal blush brush. The stippling brush is recommended use for cream blush and foundation, as I saide, to give that airbrush magazine photo finish. There are youtube tutorials for you dolls to check out how stippling brush is used. But yes, fingers can also be used to apply this product thus giving it a balanced tone. I hoped I helped to those first time users/buyers of cream blush and the stippling brush. Ciao!

Hi dolls. I've recently tried this product and HONEST to say, it worked like a charm. Others may say its not a good product but I do like this and I would recommend it. I use this product together with my Maybelline gel foundation. I also wrote a review about it, check it here: ( http://www.makeupalley.com/product/showreview.asp/ItemId=40615 ) I would recommend for you to apply a pea size amount to your finger and blot them to your oily spot. You don't need to prime every part of your face because YES it will grease you up, but if you place them to your oily spot, this will leave you a matte finish. I live in a very warm country and this is my savior to my oily face problems. I do recommend you girls checking out my review on maybelline gel foundation. Let me know if you girls have any personal questions, feel free to ask :-) I do give honest opinions. Ciao!

HI dolls. I've been using this gel foundation for almost 2 years now, and I've already purchased 5 bottles of it since i started using it, because it is actually a good product. But I do agree with others saying that it made their face oily, it doesn't last all day. Well yes I did experience it but it wasn't a big deal of a problem. I prefer the gel foundation above all other foundations because it is light and easy to spread since it is water based. But I do Have a trick to make that oily problem and doesn't last all day problem go away. Here's how. I use ELF mineral infused face primer, and then I use the gel foundation. I prime my face first applying a pea size amount to my finger and blot them to my oily spots and rub them in. Then That's the time i apply my Maybelline gel foundation. Works like a charm! It leaves your face matte finish and it lasts all day, as long as you don't perspire and have heavy activities along the way. I'm a student in culinary arts and i do wear makeup inside the kitchen and i do perspire a lot but the primer saved me from that oily face after class. I guess primer is the trick, you don't need to use ELF primer, you can use other brands, but i think ELF is cheaper than smashbox. Hoped I help with those who are looking for that perfect oil free face. PS I'm also a makeup artist and my clients always admire the foundation i'm using for them and myself. Ciao! I will soon upload a picture of my maybelline gel foundation before and after it is applied to my face :-)
