I am in love with this and it's a life-changer! It's the first eyeshadow primer I've tried, so can't compare it to others, but decided to give it a go after reading reviews of quite a few. Decided to try this one first, as is cheaper than other which come out well-reviews (Urban Decay, Too Faced, NARS, etc). Got it for £9.99 on eBay, and it's available on Amazon too (this …Read more

This i just meh, in my opinion. It's the first eyelash primer I've tried, and decided on this one after reading reviews for several. It just doesn't change my lashes or mascara noticeably, so certainly not worth the price tag. Really disappointed, as my lashes are short, straight and not thick, so was hoping for a bit of magic. Can't compare it to other eyelash primers, but I …Read more

Bought this in Dark due to good reviews, but so disappointed with the colours. The darkest just isn't dark. I have dark brown hair with slight copper sheen when the light shines on it, but this was too brown and too red. With only three colour choices, this just isn't a good range for so many people! Shame, because the product gets great reviews and the formula and staying power look …Read more

My absolute HG. Wish I’d tried this ages ago! I have rosacea so very sensitive skin, so 99.9% of moisturisers break me out, but this doesn’t. I’m also oily, but this is the best moisturiser I’ve tried – no extra oiliness. I used Clarins Hydra Matte for years, which is also fine on my skin but is twice the price. The price for this is great for a high-end brand, and the packaging is perfect – pump …Read more

This has changed my life! I'm new to setting powder, and got this after reading reviews on MUA (was considering this and MAC). It's a revolution to me! I have really oily skin, so was just looking for something to set the look of my liquid foundation and hopefully keep the oil at bay longer than usual. I dust a very small amount on with the LM fan brush (which is fab - much easier to …Read more

First time I've used a fan brush but I got it to go with the Laura Mercier Pressed Settling Powder (Translucent) and I LOVE it. I previously used the small LM velvet puffs to apply the powder but it was too fiddly and I often found I got too much powder that way. Now I just use the fan brush with a small amount of powder, and brush gently over my nose, chin and forehead after I've put …Read more

I've used this for a while but am looking for something different. It's good when it's new, but dries out SO quickly. The staying power is ok but it doesn't stay black all day - it fades to a dark grey, which isn't great. I would re-purchase if I were in a rush and hadn't found anything else to replace it, but ideally not.

Two words: too greasy! I had high hopes for this for my sensitive rosacea skin, but it's just too greasy for my oily skin. It didn't feel too bad when I applied it - a bit thick but it seemed to absorb ok. But very oily only a few hours later... I might try it at night time, but think there's a chance it even be too oily overnight too. So I wouldn't recommend for oily or combo …Read more
