I've have owned this foundation for awhile and repurchased it once. This is a very elegant and beautiful foundation. I am also turning 40 soon and I noticed that this is really good for someone who's skin is showing signs of aging (i.e. fine lines and spots). It really blurs the skin beautifully and I could surmise that's the reason why Angie like this so much. I am also on Retin A …Read more

BB Cream - IT Cosmetics - Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream Oil-Free Matte w/ SPF 40

I have this and the original and depending on my mood I would switch between the two. What I love about this formula is it really covers my redness really good and I understand that some people might be averse to the thickness of the cream. However, I find that it soothes my textures and it gives a nice glow as the day goes on.

For reference, I am between NC 20 to 25 and the shade light …

I have been using this gem for quite awhile and I can definitely tell the difference it does to my hair. I use a dime size amount each day after I cleanse my hair (yes I wash my hair everyday) and I don't have to worry about my hair tangling or getting dry. This is truly heaven sent and has replaced my more expensive treatments like olaplex no.3. I sometimes use my Garnier Moroccan Oil after …Read more

I am quite hesitant writing this review because I am afraid that people will start hoarding this beautiful gem.

This has replaced my Chanel Loose Powder and for a reason. It is so finely milled, beautiful natural finish and it also makes my skin so smooth!

I am between NC 20 - 25 and I have repurchased this so many times and this gem is the only powder that will touch my …

This has been my staple lipstick/lip balm this summer. For reference, I am between NC 20 - 25 leaning more 20 and this gives you a very effortless look on hot summer days. The color is very neutral but it also gives you that very put together look.

I like using this everyday and this alternates very well with my HG MAC Cosmo.

The shade on my lips is somewhat between rose with …

I am in love with this concealer!

I am in my late thirties and I have noticed that my HG MAC Pro Longwear Concealer is a bit too drying for me now and I can see my deeper lines underneath my eyes at the end of the day.

I have been searching high and low for what would be a great concealer that is natural finish and won't accentuate my texture. Ladies and Gentleman, I …

This has become a holy grail lipstick for me. It just makes my complexion so fresh and beautiful. For reference I am between NC 20 - 25 in MAC and I have a bit of a neutral undertone leaning more to yellow.

This is a pink coco lipstick for me. Not too brown and not too pink. Perfect everyday shade and did I say it is moisturizing as well.

I am writing this review to the newer version of Hada Labo's Perfect UV white gel in a jar SPF 50 PA ++++.
As an oily skin gal, I was quite hesitant trying this. However, I took the plunge and ordered it off Amazon (Canada).

First of all, this is so emollient in a very good way. You can use this on its own after washing your face in the morning. However, I still layered my …

A definite must have for any skin care routine. I’m 39 yo and on Retin A for the last two years. I can honestly say that I’m blown away by how much this enhanced the clarity and smooths ness of my skin. I’m even contemplating if I should stop using AHA at night with this coz it’s more than enough. It’s cheap and it works. I only use this in the morning. I use the Cerave foaming cleanser at night.
