Every day HG foundation, never tried the old one so I can't compare, but this is amazing. It gives medium-full coverage, and looks good no matter how I apply it. It stays all day and helps with my super oily skin, although i do still have to blot (mac blot powder). I always set it with a powder, either Mac MSFN or Elf HD powder and it stays foreverrrr. It is really expensive, but I use it every day and I'm not running out yet, been 3 months! (: Will definitely repurchase(: Oh and no breakouts!

I got this in a set from Sephora that came with this face wash, Hope in a Jar moisturizer, Eye Hope, and the Microdelivery Peel for $69, which isn't bad considering how expensive the face wash and moisturizer are on their own. I've been using the two together every day (2x a day) to replace my Neutrogena Grapefruit Scrub which I hated. When I first started using it, I broke out on my forehead. I was really bummed because it was so expensive and I wanted to love it. My mum told me to just keep using it, that my skin was purging, so I did. And can i just say- WOW. My skin has never been so clear and smooth! I'm really glad I stuck with this and it's now my HG face wash. For the first week or so, you'll have break outs, but they go away, no problem. I love that this isn't too drying, and really cleans. I do use makeup remover before and toner after this, but only because I tend to wear a lot of makeup and the extra steps just make me feel like I'm not hurting my skin :P This stuff is really amazing, and paired with my prescription acne medication, my skin has never been better<3 Will definitely buy this for the rest of my life !
So I actually liked the Dream Smooth Mousse packaging, i thought it was cool how there was a little petri dish of makeup- although there wasn't a lot in there - . I think mine cost around $6 US at Walmart, so it wasn't anything particularly pricey like my Revlon CS<3 but anyway, this stuff is utter and complete crap. When i first used it, I loved it to death. It left such a flawless finish, i looked airbrushed ! The color match was perfect and I was in heaven, i mean, how lucky was i that my holy grail foundation was only $6 instead of $40 or something?! Then, i woke up the next day. and practically died. I had these terrible little red spots ALL over my forehead! My skin was pink and itchy and irritated, it was terrible. I didn't know if it was the DSM for sure, so I used it again that day (stupid, I know) and they went from bumps to full on zits. My face was disgusting. I stopped using it, and threw it away. Almost a day later, my face was already starting to clear up again, I hate the Dream Smooth Mousse! The Dream Matte Mousse did the same thing, as well! Grr.
so i got this brush when i first started to wear liquid foundation. all of the "cool kids" of youtube were using stippling brushes, so i wanted to join the club too! i really didnt want to shell out 42 dollars for a MAC 187 though, so i got this one for only 3 bucks! i ordered it online and when it arrived i was ESTATIC! until i used it. this thing is SO FLIMSY. its good for blush, i guess. but i was so disappointed. ): i use a sephora stipple brush now-37$ but totally worth it. ELF really disappointed me here. D:
I used to LOVE this foundation, but then it started to break me out in cystc acne ): It bums me out that i can't use it anymore but oh well. ): Best applied with a flat top brush like sigma f80 or elf powder brush (:
This stuff is amazing! I have the 3 step system, and it was working, but taking FOREVER to start really clearing me up. I finally used this stuff once on my face in the shower, and it cleared me up! I only used it once, and it was like a miracle. Love it<3 So now, i use it in place of the renewing cleanser. (: I totally recommend it & will definitely repurchase (:
i LOVE this! oh my gosh, it is like my HG product! no matter what style i do, i use this stuff. It doesn't make my hair crunchy or stiff, even when I straighten, I use a little bit, just to keep it straight. Also, I'm kinda in love with the smell! It really works, and for my budget, it's not over my price range. love love love it<3
i love biosilk! i use it on wet hair OR before i use a heat appliance (like a straightener or curler), and then a tiny bit after. this is like my HOLY GRAIL product.! <3 it makes my hair soft, calms all frizz, and keeps it all looking smooth and silky and healthy(: when it comes to biosilk vs. chi silk infusion, though, silk infusion will always win. <3 still. this stuff is great
**UPDATEA** stopped working for me completely and my breakouts came back ): now i use philosophy purity face wash, witch hazel (toner), acanya acne gel (perscription needed) and hope in a jar moisturizer and my skin is finally almost clear! Original Review: L O V E this!! i still get the occasional zit, but i just put on the refining mask overnight and like magic, it's gone (or at least small enough for makeup to cover). it does make it worse before it gets better, and you have to continue to use this almost like..religiously haha. it REALLY works though!! <3 i swear by this stuff. it does make your skin a little dry, but i have super oily skin, so a little moisturizer and i'm perfect(: my face has never been so even and clear and flawless and just...<3 i love this stuff
