Sitting on the fence with this one.
colour - all colours run slightly orange/yellow. there are so many colours to choose from so i think that i probably just chose the wrong one. having said that, it is still an okay colour match. just not perfect.
consistency - watery though heavily pigmented. for some acne scars, i don't need concealer. glides on the face well, i use the RT …

This is my favourite medium coverage powder to use on its own. I do not use this power to ever set my foundation. I only ever use it solely as a foundation with a concealer to hide any pigmentation or blemishes.

Used with the real techniques multitasking brush, i buff this into my skin over the top of either the mineral loose rice setting powder or napoleon pedis mineral …

SO HAPPY WITH THIS PALETTE! one of my favourites to use, the tones in this are gorgeous. leans more towards mauve/pink shades and Im a warm coloured person but really, the colours complement my NC40 skin anyway.

the mattes are easily bendable. They are quite pigmented (not as pigmented as MELT or Anastasia Cosmetic eyeshadows, i would compare the pigmentation to Tarte) and i always …

beautiful heavy gun metal packaging with mirror. only downside is the lid opens to a 90 degree angle (instead of 180 degrees) so you can't put your face up close to the palette. comes in three colours, this colour is the deepest/darkest.

5/5 for everything. texture is buttery smooth. softest of powders that I've ever felt in between my fingers lol
colour is more of a …

doe foot applicator, $29USD at sephora.
nc40 skintone and i bought custard. it has a great highlighting property and looks great in the under eye section. i have not used this as a blemish concealer yet.
it highlights beautifully and melts into my foundation or powder base. i blob about 3-4 blobs on my cheek and blend with my ring finger into the area. i either set with a lighter powder …

Dec/18/2014

i have bought three of these. perfect density for blending into the crease. always creates perfect eyeshadow.
can be used to lightly dust eyeshadow onto the lid and brow bone but isn't great for packing colour. the tip can be used for precise application and then grab a new one and blend the colour out. i also use this on my bottom lashes to blend my transition colour into the lash …

Dec/18/2014

i have repurchased this for over and year and just switched to angels on bare skin for a more gentle option.
black coal face scrub in a dry powder form. needs to be mixed with water before applied to the face. brown sugar acts as the main exfoliant. doesn't have a strong smell but does have one which i cannot explain.
it is quite abrasive on the skin when you use it though if you …

$19USD at sephora. pink in colour. have tried the real techniques due and this was better.
wet the sponge until it inflates and then use a towel to take out excess moisture.
i have used this with most of my foundations and those that are water based, it does a great job for. it blends liquid foundation flawlessly into my skin, and it feels nice too because its a dabbing motion- a brush …

this oil comes in a plastic bottle with a pump. i don't think this is travel friendly by the looks of it.
$38 AUD in myer.
yellow in colour, very watery consistency which is good because it allows you to spread the liquid all over your face without dragging. i have only tried the dermalogica cleansing oil which was much thicker, harder to spread and only worked well once it was …
