I love this foundation! About me- oily/combo skin, acne-prone, NC25-30, warm undertones. I purchased the shade 210, which is almost an exact match. If you're NC30 with very strong yellow undertones, 210 is perfect! The pros: -looks natural, not cakey -glowy/dewy finish -medium/buildable coverage -doesn't feel heavy or break me out -affordable (7.99 CAD at walmart) cons: -only lasts 4-5 hours -the packaging isnt that great- tends to leak around the edges for me All in all I really love this foundation, just wish it lasted a bit longer on my oily skin. Will def. repurchase anyway though since the finish is just perfect!
For reference: My skin - super oily, acne prone. prefer med-full coverage foundation I finally found my summer HG foundation. I've tried Revlon CS and PR, MAC Studio Fix Fluid, ELDW, MUFE Mat Velvet +, MUFE F&B, etc....and this is the best yet. I have a hard time finding foundations with enough yellow in it, but my shade (Stromboli) runs very yellow! I'm NC30-35 and it matches PERFECTLY. My other HG foundation ELDW feels a little too heavy in the summer, and does not look as natural as Nars SG. Sorry for the rant...heres what I found with my experience.. NARS Sheer Glow: Pros: -does not even look like you're wearing foundation, looks very natural -feels sooo light, like you're not even wearing any! -buildable coverage -easy to apply (just warm between fingers, and apply and blend!) -good staying power (lasts all day with minimal touch ups) -was able to find a shade with strong yellow tones Cons: -price tag ($55 CAD).....but still worth it If you're looking for a summer foundations that feels very light but still gives coverage, this is it! I have never had a foundation look SO natural. LOVE NARS Sheer Glow! :D
Wow! I've fallen in love with this shadow....after it sat in my drawer for months. It's so pretty to use all over my lid, love it! Has some shimmer but not too much! It looks GREAT with brown eyes! Go get it~!!! =)
Definately my favourite ELF brush hands down, one of my favourite brushes ever! Super soft and picks up the perfect amount of product. I have one for blush and one for bronzer...reading the reviews here I'm gonna have to try it with foundation as well. Amazing quality for the price, definately a great buy! Highly recommended!

I absolutely love this tinted moisturizer. I've tried Stila's and a bunch of department store brands, and they were all too oily or didn't give as much coverage as I wanted. This one is PERFECT. I wear it every day now!! These are the pros I found: -Medium coverage -non-oily or greasy -absorbs quickly, but blends very easily -pleasant sweet sugary orange smell -easy to apply with fingertips -stays on all day -super cheap!! Cons: -the tube is too small!! All in all, I think I have found my HG TM. And who would have thought it would come from ELF! I am going to stock up...Really, you should try this, its only a dollar and you really can't go wrong. I just wish shipping wasnt so expensive to Canada =( ($15)

Not even worth my breath. Didn't do ANYTHING. Don't waste your money on this.
So I've had this palette for a while, and I love it. It's so much fun to play around with all the colours...and yet you can still use the bottom colours everyday. AMAZING quality when paired with UDPP. Lasts all day, SUPER shimmery. Def. will repurchase.

I love love LOVE this lipstick! It's SUPER pigmented and goes on smooth. It's pretty creamy too. It's a bright coral shade that I think actually works better with tan-medium skin tones, but not light ones. I discovered it at wal-mart for 6.97, which isnt bad. It's my first coral lipstick...I don't think I'll stray from this one though. Def. will repurchase when I finish!
