I have combo to oily skin depending on the season, so when I saw the claims this foundation gave I bought it immediately. It gives a matte finish to the skin and full coverage which I'm all about. It did last 8-9 hours before I notice any oil start to seep through and even then it was very minimal and not need to blot. My problem is that I did not seem to find a good or even decent shade for …Read more

I have combo to oily skin depending on the season. Normally I wouldn't buy any foundation with the finish being radiant, much less buy one with the actual word radiant in the title. I decided to give this ago because of the good reviews is was getting, even from people with oily skin. Originally I bought the shade Vienna which was one shade to light for me, but was still able to wear without …Read more

I received in an ipsy bag, it is a generous sample size and use it all up. I cannot attest to the anti-aging claim, since I only used a sample size. It was an okay moisturizer. I has a slight medicine smell, I felt that it tingled when first applied, but for it being a thinner, gel like consistency, I felt it took while for my skin to absorb. It really did nothing for my skin, it did not provide …Read more

Mar/19/2018

I received a generous sample that lasted me 2 weeks with daily use. I cannot attest to the wrinkle minimizing or firming since I did not enough of the product. To me it was like a lot of night creams out there. It is a thicker moisturizer with a strong fragrance that does linger for a while. I have oily skin and large pores. I feel that this did nothing for me. It seemed to lay on my skin and not …Read more

Bronzers - theBalm Cosmetics - Bahama Mama Bronzer, Shadow & Contour Powder

This can be used as an all over bronzer or contour. I have a medium skin tone that tans easily. The shade for me is a slight tan effect when I am lightly tan, or a contour when I am medium toned. It only takes a light hand when bronzing otherwise is can look a little muddy. I using more for bronzing than contouring but works well enough to do both. This is something that I pack when traveling …Read more

this a soft pink blush, when it is swatched with a finger it pulls more coral peach, also it is described as a matte, but I notice a pinky/gold sheen, but it does not translate when applied to face with a blush it looks matte on the face and pink not peach or coral. For this reason I can use to work or out at night. I am not really a pink blush person, but this is one of the few pinks that I like …Read more

This is one of my everyday used blushes. This is my no think blush, I will use it to work and on nights out. This is what I wish NARS Orgasm was. It has a gold sheen that I love, not to glitter but a nice sheen highlight that I appreciate I don't really like highlighters on my oily skin. It is long lasting and can be sheered out or with a slightly heavier application can really intensify the …Read more

I would call this a matte slightly darker peach coral color. This is my favorite of the Instain blushes as it is matte, and a true peach color that works well for my medium skin tone. It is long lasting and I would recommend for light to dark skin tones. It is a rich smooth formula it has a neutral undertone that I appreciate since alot of peach blushes tend to have cooler undertones.

This is a very bright pink color. It gives a flushed effect to the cheeks and works great with most skin tones from fair to deep. It is long lasting and a little goes a long way. It is one of the very few bright pinks that I wear routinely.

This is a strawberry coral color that is very long lasting. I managed to wear for 12 hours and still looked freshly applied. This color is perfect for medium to deep skin tones. If you are fair just be warned it is a very potent color but can be sheered out for a light wash of color. If worn on bare face it will leave a slight coral stain.
