I really wanted to love this after all the oil control, mattifying claims but even with milk of magnesia underneath this isn't for me. I got the shade 110 Creme Café which is an excellent shade match for NC45 skin. Applied well and it is buildable although its definitely medium coverage, it is not full coverage. Dried down to a beautiful natural matte finish. My pores disappeared as well so …Read more

I dont know how it took me this long to come across microfiber cloths. Much as I love my full beat face, one thing I hate is removing it at the end of the day and more so because I wear long wearing, mattifying and waterproof products which are notoriously hard to remove. This makes it all a breeze! It's all gone in under a minute with just water! I'm looking forward to saving money on …Read more

Im reviewing the Shimmer HD powder. Personally I love it! Yes it has in shimmer particles. I've heard people say they find it glittery... I do not. It's more of a sparkle as this slightly peachy toned powder is extremely finely milled. It's definitely not a pearl sort of sheen. That said, I use this to set my highlighted areas and under my eyes if i want extra drama, just a dusting …Read more

Bought into the hype around this product as well. Makeup junkie bait at its best! My opinions...
Cons
1. The packaging is really dinky for $26
2. Very little product for the product cost
3. I dont think you get much color pay off using a brush; the result is extremely subtle and needs quite a bit of building up. Much better results with fingers if you prefer a bright …

Really wanted to like this. Bought blush gems and moonlight pearl. Both great colours for everyday. It's not going to give a very bright highlight however as it is extremely dry and difficult to pick up product. I'll definitely splurge and get soft and gentle from mac when this is done as blush gems is a dupe. I like a bright highlight. I'll get that bang for my buck with Mac …Read more

Moisturizers - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Mineral Oil

Once you understand that any oil traps moisture (water) in the skin and doesnt actually moisturize the skin in most cases, then you'll be friends with any oil!

That said, mineral oil is an excellent makeup remover and this is what i use primarily to oil cleanse my face. It's cheaper and more effective than the expensive stuff. Lipstick, foundation, mascara.... They dont …

I have oily skin in the t zone and my formerly normal skin elsewhere on the face has begun to look very dry and flaky as ive got older. Regular moisturizers for oily skin are no longer moisturizing enough for my entire face so I decided to give OCM, albeit a modified version of it, a shot.

I use plain old baby oil or baby oil gel (mineral oil is non comedogenic contrary to popular …

Im an NC44 or NC45 depending on the time of year. I use this product as a bronzer/blush/contour. For me it's an all in one as I dont like blusher much but it gives a nice flush of colour to my face after foundation and helps define my face at the same time.

It's got an rust orange colour to it and is extremely sheer so it's very easy to build to the desired coverage and …

This is heavy duty makeup. I mainly use this as an under eye concealer. It is very thick and full coverage so start with a pea size or smaller amount and add as needed. I find it works best when placed with fingers or brush and then blended with a sponge. You'll absolutely have to set this makeup with powder.

It's also silicone based so keep that in mind. You cant mix …
