Moisturizers -Eucerin - Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Sensitive Skin Creme

This is a really great moisturizer. It gets rid of my dry/patchy/flaky areas basically overnight which is caused by my benzoyl peroxide use. If you have dry skin this is what you need. But after a few days of using it, my skin no longer needs such a rich creme and if I use too much product it rolls up on me. I have oily skin when I don't use my acne medication, so a richer lotion formula is probably better for normal use. If you have any recommendations please let me know! I only buy cruelty and fragrance free skincare so this was great. However, I think that even though this is made for sensitive skin, it makes me itchy sometimes though I am not quite sure. It is very strange since it seems products marketed for sensitive skin like this and the Cetaphil Cream actually irritate my skin more than other products...
I would say this is better than Mac's studio finish concealer. It blends better and looks less caked. This covers my acne scars amazingly and photographs beautifully. I ordered a 301-63A which is the lightest color in the #3 palette. But I still found it to be too yellow based and dark for my skin color. I am quite fair with neutral to only slightly yellow based skin-around NC15. I was recommended the next best color would be 401-71 which is supposed to lighter and less yellow. My only gripe about it is that it has a fragrance and I generally like my products to be fragrance free. So I probably won't be getting this again, unless they remove the fragrance-then it would be perfect! I have done a comparison to this and the Graftobian foundation on my Graftobian foundation review if you are debating which to get.
Crème -Graftobian - High-Definition Glamour Color Creme Foundation

I would like to compare this to the Cinema Secrets Foundation. The Graftobian is more buttery and softer in texture. It melts and blends amazingly. If you live in a colder climate and don't have acne scars I would recommend the Graftobian. However, the CS provides better coverage especially for acne scars since it is tackier. I was hoping to be able to use this as a spot concealer as well like my CS, but I find that it slides and is not tacky enough. I would say that the Graftobian is better as a foundation/under-eye concealer and the CS is better for spot concealing. I like the Grabtobian because it is fragrance free while the CS has a fragrance.
Makeup Brushes -Ecotools - Alicia Silverstone 5-piece Brush Set

I was looking for a vegan duo fiber brush and this is it! It is so soft and the perfect amount of full/firmness. I like that it isn't a short handle, giving it a professional look. The other brushes in the set are also great and the bag is pretty. I would highly recommend and would repurchase it. I hope ecotools will make the finishing brush a part of their permanent line. I ordered this from Amazon for a little over $20 with free 2day shipping. There was an option for a cheaper price but the delivery was much longer.
