I'm.an nc42. Firstly I.couldn't get a.decent match without mixing 2 shades. the closest Syracuse was too beige/cool.
And.even on my normal skin I found it didn't sit on my skin well or.blend properly. it wasn't very glow either. Waste of money.

My brows don't stay on. I'm currently using Abh pomade as well but I take the time to do it properly it can look a bit overdone quickly. This however looks.so natural and lasts a lot longer. If you like a heavy brow look then this isn't the product for you. My only bug bear is.that it finishes very quickly -and I have tried to.shake it. therefore its not worth the pricetag. Not …Read more

Tarte is hard to come by in the UK and I've been on a kick to find a concealer that doesnt crease as I have fine lines under my eyes . I was on the waitlist for this.
When it finally came I was disappointed. that initially it was clear fluid coming out. The tube is also kinda hard to squeeze but I squeezed until it was opaque cream. the shade was great I got tan (nc42/44). It was nice …

I liked the Light version of the regular one so I thought id try this one. Im so glad I got a
the travel size one. I don't dry skin & found the primer clung to dry patches which weren't even there. I found this one a little thick. Would try the blue hydrating one or get the light version but defense not this. didn't even make my skin glowy

A very very fluidy gel liner. If youre a novice you might find it too slippery & wet. But if your a pro this really does look like a liquid eyeliner once on.
Ive used the maybelline one, loreal, Bb, and illamasqua and they all look more like a neatly applied pencil eyeliner.
I find it easier to use a old fashioned brush rather than a slanted one. I use MACs 210 & these work so …

I cant believe this e/s retails for £21! I was on the fence about it.for so long and bit the bullet as I managed. to score ot for 16. I wore it of the first time today over a Mac PP (dry) and it did not budge which is rare for me. I wore it on lid with Sketch & Beauty Marked in outer V. For my NC43 skin it is the most flattering bronze nude shade without being too warm or too cool. I'm …Read more

If you are around NC40 - 45 you need to get on this.

I beleive painterly is for those that are NW as itsgot moreof a pink tone, and SoftOchre for NCs as its more yellow.
Im NC42-4 and whilst using Soft Ochre (SO) was fine for base for eyeshadow due to some dark discolouratipn on my upper lid it did go a little ashy if I just wanted to forego powder eyeshadow and just have a naked …

I've got the shade sx11 for my nc 43 skin. its slightly off but its fine.
The first thing I noticed was it was highly fragranced. When I checked the ingredients I couldn't believe mineral oil was the top ingredient . It is so cheap yet SSE in the UK is £38!
it s difficult to use neat even with a BB. For my face I mix it with the Elemis flash balm.
It looks quite good …

Got this as a free gift with a magazine. So glad I didnt shell out for it. Formula nothing to rave about and colour is so sheer it doesnt look like I have anything on.

Love this - straight up nude peach with hardly any pink. Its a difficult shade to find in a lipgloss & wish i could find a more opaque version.
Im not a lipgloss girl - dont like shine or transparencybut this seems to work although 4 out 5 times I layer it over Sleeks Barely there or over my recent purchase MAC Ravishing lipstick.
Im nc 42 and this is the perfect spring summer lip …
