Yes it can make your face look “dewy” if you spray enough of this on. Otherwise not much effect. However it’s a shiny, sweaty kind of dewy effect sadly. The shine it adds also emphasises texture.

It does work to “melt” your makeup together. However using a sponge dampened with plain old tap water and going over the makeup lightly is not only cheaper, it also looks better in my …

Loose Powders - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Ultra HD Loose Powder Microfinishing Powder

5.0

5 months ago

I really like this powder.

Although it is considered a finishing powder, in my experience it sets makeup as well. I have dry skin, but sometimes I can get *slightly* oily on the nose and forehead for example in the summer and it's great for that. I think this would work well for both oily and dry skin. That is assuming you want a matte powder.

It diffuses light and …

Liquid - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Ultra HD Foundation

I wanted a foundation that looked like real skin or very close to it for everyday wear. I have quite mixed feelings about this foundation.

PACKAGING AND FORMULA
I like the shade I selected, "R230 beige ivory" for my light skin with neutral to slightly cool undertones (about MAC NW20). It's a nice muted realistic skin colour and not at all orange, pink or yellow …

Now this is the only brow product I have ever tried, so keep that in mind when reading my review. That being said I love this product!

I use the shade "Brown". It thickens and darken the brows and looks extremely natural. At first when I tried it, I didn't know how to use it, so I just combed it through the brows scratching the skin behind the eyebrows and irritating it …

Primer/ Corrector - Yves Saint Laurent - Touche Eclat (Radiant Touch)

This is pretty much the only highlighter as far as I know that does not contain any shimmer. Like none at all not even micro-shimmer only visible under a bright light or direct sunlight that so many other products like this contains.

This sadly did not work for me. I couldn't really see any difference when I applied this, except for some very faint colour. Despite the sheer …

This is a really great powder!

The pressed version is everything I hoped the loose version would be.

Pros:
- Almost completely undetectable (the loose version was detectable looking up close. This is almost completely invisible. You have to apply a large amount and get really close to the mirror in natural light and even then it's still almost undetectable even when …

Cleansers - CLINIQUE - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

2.0

8 months ago

Very good at cleaning the skin. Nothing is left. However it was *extremely* drying on my dry sensitive skin. It didn’t cause any immediate irritation however. I don’t know if this would cause me to breakout or give me clogged pores as I have only used it 4 times. It is probably one of the most drying cleansers I have ever tried.

I had the same reaction with Clinique Take the day off …

Bronzers - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Pro Bronze Fusion

The supposedly “matte” shades although shimmer free at first glance have lots of very fine shimmer visible in bright sunlight!

This product is marketed as an undetectable bronzer and available in matte shades, but there isn’t anything undetectable or matte about looking shimmery all over once you step outside in sunlight. I got this in the shades 10M and 30M.

Beside that …

Moisturizers - Embryolisse - Lait-Crème Concentrè (24-Hour Miracle Cream)

If you are looking for a basic moisturiser and primer in one that leaves a beautiful dewy glow to the skin (with absolutely no shimmer – this is a moisturiser) then this is a great option. This looks beautiful under anything with a matte finish. I use this everyday under a matte mineral sunscreen (Paula's Choice Resist Super-light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30) and it keeps my skin from …Read more
