I wanted to love this brush. It’s the perfect size and shape and I thought I would use it for both powder and bronzer. But it just didn’t work well. It didn’t seem to pick up product or blend it that well into my face. I’m surprised given how much love it’s given online and in reviews. I sadly had to return it. The Sephora Pro brushes blow this one away.

These are really pretty on my NC10 skin. Warm, subtle, good for day wear. Very pretty pink/brown shades. They blend beautifully but you need to use a soft brush and a light hand as the pigment is quite strong.

Just as a FYI for fellow fair skinned girls, the matching blush is much more like the dark brown smoke shade than the pink mid-tone shade. I was sad about that as it was too …

This pulls really peach on me. I also find it to be a bit too soft to get a good crisp line. I love most of Charlotte’s products, but this was a miss for me. I felt the same way about the lipstick (I got s sample during a Sephora points offer). It washed me out and pulled really peach. I also wasn’t a fan of the pillow talk blush (it went very terra cotta orange on my NC10 skin and the …Read more

The bronze shade is really pretty on my very fair skin (I’m an NC10 in MAC and I’m between the 0 and 1 in Charlotte’s Magic Foundation - the 0 is better tone wise, but the 1 has a better undertone for me). It’s not too dark, does not pull at all orange, and looks very natural. The problem is the highlighter. It’s not workable on me. It’s just too dark and too gold and does not look natural. …Read more

Liquid - Deciem - The Ordinary Colours Serum Foundation

I bought the shade 1N and it’s a pretty good match to my NC10 skin. This reminds me of MAC’s waterweight foundation (that didn’t go fair enough for me to wear). Light coverage that gives no texture on the skin. It’s enough to cover redness and even out skin tone and looks very natural. Wears well on my slightly dry skin. And completely unscented. A pleasant surprise for the price.

Moisturizers - CLINIQUE - Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate

I’ve been using this as a serum in the mornings under moisturizer and before sunscreen. It’s not super moisturizing on its own, but I find that it has helped my dehydrated skin normalize out (its undoing some damage I did to myself with a few of The Ordinary products that were not a good fit for my sensitive skin). I still think I prefer the moisture surge intense cream as I could use it on its …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - NIOD Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex

I was so excited to try this. HA usually works beautifully with my skin. But there’s something in this that I am reacting to. It stings when it goes on and has been drying me out. I’ve been alternating days with another HA serum and things are good on the days when I use something else, so I know it’s this product that I’m reacting to. It’s too bad - I had been reading all about this and was …Read more

I have never had issues with niacinimide before, but this burnt my face. I had some minor irritation the first time I tried it. I waited two days and reapplied again last night with HA serum and moisturizer over top. I literally had to get up at 1 am and wash my face. My skin is red and hugely irritated (not breakouts, not an allergic rash, just red and burnt with little dry patches all over …Read more
