This didn’t work on me at all. It helped smooth my skin a tiny bit but as for oil control? NOPE! My skin actually seemed oilier than normal by lunch time. It’s cheap but I won’t be trying this again....off to buy some Hourglass Mineral Veil...

I was unsure whether this would work for me but I really like this product. I have combination skin that is very oily in the summer. I tend to wear very sheer bases as I hate that ‘mask’ effect you can get with really high coverage foundations but sometimes I want a little more coverage for special occasions. I was hesitant that the coverage would be too much but actually it’s buildable. It does …Read more

Oh dear, I really wasn’t impressed with this. I have been suffering with dry cheeks and mild rosacea so I have been looking at new foundations as I need a little more coverage now. I tested the shade Alabaster which was quite a good match for my fair skin. Upon application I mentioned to the Clinique assistant that my dry patches were super visible, she said that would be the case with all …Read more

Really like this foundation. I hover between sheer to medium coverage, I hate anything that looks caked on or thick. This goes on really well with fingers or a foundation brush, it is quite runny and easy to blend in. As it is quite sheer it is definitely buildable. It does seem to 'perfect' the skin in that it gives a very natural glow without looking cakey. I sometimes have quite oily …Read more

I am on the fence with this one. As glosses go it's pretty good - nice texture, not too sticky and lasts a fair while. I bought the shade 'Blondie' to go with a smoky eye as I like a subtle lip sometimes. Essentially though this shade is really just an opaque shimmer, there isn't anything special enough about it that justifies the price. The guy who served me on the counter at …Read more

I bought this as it came up in a search for 'clean' scents. I was hoping for something soapier but it is very much a standard cologne. It smells very much like a cheap version of Neroli Portofino to me, it is citrussy and pleasant enough but nothing special. I am glad I bought a tester of this as it is not what I was looking for. If you like citrus fragrances and normal colognes this …Read more

I so wanted to love this foundation but sadly it does not seem to work for me. I have combination skin which veers towards oily and I know which products work for me e.g Double Wear Light amongst others. I had read that this is fine for oilier skins but I don't believe that is true. I think a foundation at this price should work well enough without a primer if it really is ok for oily skins …Read more

I tried this out today, I have combination skin but sometimes I don't want to be matte, I want to glow! I have read reviews about the 'sparkle' in the product which worried me slightly (the now discontinued Mac mineralize liquid foundation was a jar of liquid glitter) but realistically if you want to look 'dewy' or have that sheen that celebrities have then it is likely …Read more

Liquid - Maybelline New York - Fit Me Dewy/Hydrate/Luminous and Smooth Foundation (formerly Fit Me)

Disappointed by this. It doesn't 'fit' me, it just looks orange and a bit oily after a few hours. This is quite sheer so not good for those looking to cover imperfections. When first applied it does give quite a nice dewy effect but this quickly becomes oily. This might be good for dry skins but I will not be purchasing again.

This is a really good mascara. I have tried so many mascaras over the years ranging from high end to high street and it really is amazing how the way they work differs from person to person. For example YSL False Lash really does not do much for me, I get totally average results. Others such as Lancome Hypnose work well on me but I find myself being drawn to some of the High Street ones. I have …Read more
