Broke me out very badly. I knew it was this product as I was getting lots of little white heads and red bumps on my skin (usually the hormonal ones are the cystic kind...). However, it smells great, is very cheap for a moisturizer, and feels quite nice on. I only give it a 1 out of 5 because it does not work for my skin type (very oily). Would work great on very dry to dry skin.
I am NC 27 or NC 30 and i got this in Medium Beige for OILY COMBO skin. Medium beige has yellow undertone. I tried fresh beige but that is good for NW 30 skin. pros - very good coverage - spf (although a crappy amount.. spf 6 or something) - matches skin well - actually lasts a long time ( ~6-8 hours? ) cons -cakey ( accentuates dry spots!! ) - slides off on nose area - matte finish ( i prefer a dewy finish ) - hard to blend and looks cakey if you dont blend well... i use a stipple brush by quo ( mac 187 or 188 ), looks flawless when you put a lot of moisturizer under it. i actually thought this wouldnt show a white cast when you take pics but despite the low SPF it still gives a white cast.. i'll go find a new and better foundation... but this was worth a try. I got this for 15$ CAD.

this is the best mascara i have ever tried! wow. seriously. this stuff is so good. the formulation is great. it's very gel-like, but not too liquidy that it would get onto your eyelid. it doesnt dry brittle, but soft, yet somehow it builds and holds a curl! i have a full row of lashes but they are short and do not curl up. When i use this, it makes them look really long and almost like false eyelashes! see the pic ^ definitely recommend this. will buy again and again!! new HG for sure.
