Sunscreen - Paula's Choice - RESIST Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 - Normal/Oily/Combination Skin

For once I though that maybe I have a sunscreen that will not turn me into an oil slick but nope! Broke me out like crazy. Not just small whiteheads but huge, red, painful bumps. For all the claims that Paula makes, she sure doesn't know how to formulate a product for acne prone skin. So much for ingredients talk.

However if you don't have acne prone skin but do have oily …

Lotions/ Creams - KORRES Natural Products - Yoghurt Body Butter

Don't judge me but I use this product as a face cream. If you look at the ingredients, it has great moisturizing ingredients, actually has yogurt and also has a couple of anti-oxidants. It is also is tube packaging, so they will remain stable.

I have combination acne-prone skin and this doesn't break me out or makes my face red. In the morning, I wake up with nicely hydrated …

This is an extremely mattifying powder so if you're someone who has normal/dry or mature skin, you need to stay away from this but for oily folks, this is perfect. Especially when worn over a more natural/dewy finish foundation. Dusting this over an already matte foundation (e.g the loreal infallible or estee lauder double wear) is going to be too much and can look a little cakey but if you …Read more

I really, really like this concealer.
The only downside is that if you have very dry undereye area, it might emphasize the dryness but other than that it is pretty nice. I like the tube packaging more than the typical doe foot one as it is more sanitary and I can just squeeze out a small dot quite easily.
I am NC30-35 and I have the shade medium. It is a perfect match for me. However …

Why would anyone like this product is beyond me. Especially where there are so many better and cheaper products on the market. Yes cheaper because even though it is under ten dollars, you don't get a lot of product.

I bought three colors, Early Bird, Between the Sheets and Holiday. Even though they all beautiful shades and swatch gorgeously, that's about where the good things …

I own these in 2 colors. Topanga which is a satin finish and LBB which is a matte. The formula of matte ones are much better in my opinion. I have heard many bloggers say that and I agree.

The matte formula is smooth, doesn't tug and lasts fairly well.

The satin formula is a mess. I expected something like MAC amplified creme but this formula is weird. It sticks to …

My real rating is 4.5 but because there is no option for half lippie, 4 will have to do.

I will not talk about the color as many have commented on that but the formula, this is a soft powder. Most soft powders have some form of kick up and this is no exception but the kick up is not insane fortunately.

The color is very bright and very pigmented but the best thing is that …

What a beautiful blush!
I am blush junkie and this has to be in my top 3.
This is a medium, slightly dusty, warm pink. For some people, it might be a little too bright but on my NC30 skin, it is perfection!
I can wear this all year round for that perfect rosy flush.
The texture is soft but not powdery. Like all NARS blushes, this blends effortlessly into the skin. When …

I own only one shadow by MUG and that is Creme Brulee. It is such a coveted shade and is often included in ten best MUG shadows and if this is the best then I don't know what worse would be.
This product is nothing special at all. In fact, it is not even that good. This particular shade is very very powdery. The moment I touch it with my brush, there is powder everywhere. With …

Eyeliner - L'Oreal Paris - Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner 24H - Blackest Black

This is honestly as good as it gets when it comes to eyeliner. This is better than its peers (the ones from Maybelline and Revlon) and even better than MAC fluidline in my humble opinion.

The eyeliner is smooth, blackest of the black, doesn't tug or budge throughout the day. I don't do a cat flick but I use this to tightline and it holds up amazingly! No fading or flaking …
