This foundation is a pretty mattifying one and controls oil more than any other foundation that I've tried. A little goes a long way and I must say that you can get the porcelain finish that it promises and a full coverage. The staying power is great. The cons are that I feel that it causes acne like the most foundations I've tried Mac studio fix and you feel like your face is not …Read more

When I first used this product I immediately put it away cause I thought it was too greasy for my combination oily skin. The key is to use this with an acne cleanser like avene cleanance. It leaves skin baby soft and I think that that type of cleansers can manage the oilness. I prefer to use this when I don't wear makeup or at night for great moisture. Doesn't break me out and though …Read more

I've had high expectations of this product. The fact is that I'm looking for a foundation that will keep me matte. Unfortunately does not do the job. My skin is combination with a really oily T zone. The other thing is that I've experienced breakouts and I was really disappointed because it's supposed to be healing acne. Not recommend. The price is outstanding though. If this …Read more

Not even an average mascara for me. I see clumping which I really hate and can't make it work it out. Doesn't worth the volume it gives just cause my lashes are so stuck together and the result is awful. I'm also allergic to the consistency but maybe it's cause of some ingredients Loreal uses. Won't recommend.

I've had high expectations of this product due to the fact I love NYX and it is such an affordable powder. The fact is that I have combination skin with a very oily T zone which I try to calm down. Well this product didn't keep me matte for 3 hours. I had to blot like 2 times during 5 hours. You can even see it on your finger that it has not a completely matte finish. So for me …Read more

This is definitely the best lipstick I've ever tried. It matches my skin tone so well I'm an NC44 at Mac and it's really flattering. It's a mauve brown for medium to darker complexion that I definitely recommend. Does not dry my lips as other lipsticks do and it has a great staying power. It's the perfect pink brown mauve which does not wash me out like other brownish …Read more

I picked up the shade golden in the store as I was told by the makeup artist there. I have to say that I'm an NC45 and we thought that the colour would be kinda decent but no. The high price of Mac made me think that this could be a nice dupe. In the store seemed nice but when I saw this at home it caused some terrible flashbacks which I hate...anyway I don't think that I picked the …Read more

I consider this to be a deep red colour not as deep as diva a bit lighter. It's my perfect red as I have tan skin and I think that the pink undertones makes it special and flatter my skintone. It's not really intense but I think that a simple cat eye and bronze eyeshadow make it pop. As for the staying power it lasts through eating and leaves a decent amount of colour.

I'm a NC45 and this the best shade I've ever tried from Mac. It's a beautiful nude colour but it doesn't make me seem washed. I was a bit afraid that it wouldn't make it through eating but considering the fact that it's a cremesheen the lasting power was great. I highly recommend it, it's a perfect nude and it really flatters my skintone I got compliments while …Read more

This was such a big failure. My eyelashes are short and straight and after that advertising I thought I could give it a chance. However there's nothing with the push up story. It's totally wrong. Mascaras even cheaper than that gave me a more voluminous look. This mascara gives no volume, no length and certainly not curl as it promises. Waste of money for me.
